I’ve done something NEW!! But… I cannot promise it is very good, because I kinda suck. Anyway, I made a video tutorial of myself editing this pic above. I had a few people ask about how I get the vintage look/feel to my pics. So I took some time to go over the ways I touch up my pics and how I add the coloring to give the effect.
**Also.. a note about the video: I kinda screwed up because I created some of those layers before editing the pic (to try to make it all quicker) but you would need to duplicate the image AFTER you’ve done all the actual editing…otherwise it is a bit pointless. LOL =/
If you are looking for the windlight setting I used in the photo you can download it here.
Anywayyyyy I hope maybe you find some of the stuff I shared helpful, I cannot really promise much, I am just kinda wandering around PS and bumping into things for the most part!
The gorgeous Top and Skirt I’m wearing in this image is new and available at FAMESHED starting today! The crop top has quite a few colors and some great fun patterns as well, and I adore the jean/ruffle skirt because you get the ruffles in both black and white, and the skirt does come in colors as well!
One last mention, this location – amazing isn’t it?? Britannia Island is the name of the place and I found it on KOINUP. I’ve been a slacker and not using that great resource, but I want to get out and explore a bit more. Clearly I should look at the wonderful places you can find!!
Haven’t you always dreamed of wearing some amazing designer custom gown and walking the red carpet at a premiere with some dreamy guy on your arm? No? Must just be me then.
At any rate – if this is a fun little fantasy you were looking to fulfill – you can totally do so at the Love Donna Flora event that is opening on the 25th. This set with built-in poses (for singles AND couples) comes with the with the LDF logo backdrop. AND this knockout gown I am wearing can be found there as well.
I also have a special personal interest as far as wanting you all to visit the event, you see…. I designed the sim, and I’m going to share a few shots that I took when I was all finished:
The sim has lots of great areas to take photos, especially in the little village I arranged at the top of the hill. The entire sim has a very rustic Tuscan feel to it, and I can’t wait to hear what you all think…
Anyway, I really hope you take the time to go and pay a visit, there are well over 100 creators participating, and the proceeds raised are going to benefit “one of our own”, could there be a better reason to shop than helping a peer? If you’d like more details about the event visit the Love Donna Flora Blog.
This open-backed halter top and skirt are such great spring/summer wear. The colors they come in are so complimentary to the season, and they will work with oodles of other mesh clothing I bet! The open back on the top makes it a bit sexy and the print on the skirt is so playful.
Definitely one of my faves this season! I thought this short hair style suited the look perfectly, and this green shadowed special edition makeup really brought out my lovely new green eyes as well!
I love when there are bunches of great new releases all at once to make me squeal and feel like I need every last thing. Now I need to sort out how to share all my new goodies!! ACK!
Today I thought I’d share this fantastic blazer that was just released. It comes in a lot of really fantastic spring colors, and I LOVE that the jacket is actually lined (you can see it a bit in the above shot). I also adore this new hair! It has been a while since Kavar had a new release but apparently he was quite busy with new textures and a new fancy shmancy hud that makes my SL super easy!
Many thanks to my guy friend for posing with me, and standing around so patiently while I chewed his ear off!
I adore the jewels on this necklace and how detailed they are. Bold statement jewelry like this is some of my favorite. It happens to come in an assortment of colors as well, just so you know. The earrings (which you cannot see) are also darling.
I thought this simple, but gorgeously created dress really suited the jewelry well…just a small bit of trim detail on the collar but the actual texture of the dress is really lovely. It also comes in a slew of colors!
If you’ve got a holiday party coming up, there are 3 new simply perfect dresses that have just been released. The one I am wearing is my favorite, I love every single thing about it – belt detail that can easily dress it down for a lesser occasion, revealing low-cut back, and details that make the silky fabric look as though it is flowing down my body. I don’t even have to pick out shoes to wear with it..yay for mesh floor length gowns! =P
I did manage to find some pretty perfect jewelry accessories, which went well with this gooooorgeous new hairstyle.
Quick post because it is Saturday and my real life is occupying all of my time! This new jewelry set was so lovely though, and I had to snap a shot of it. Lucky me, I happened to acquire this new hair just in time to shoot the pic… most convenient because it really helps to show off the necklace and earrings!
I’m also wearing the special FLF skin from Belleza, and while the rosey cheeks and nose are meant for the outdoor mood, it is so gorgeous I had to use it anyway!
I want to rob Felicity of this cardigan and have it in my RL =/ Soon as I saw it I had to run over and buy it. I should have bought them in every color tbh. ONLY thing that stinks is because it is mesh it doesn’t love any of my other mesh shirts to wear under it. So back to shirt layers! But I made it work, small sacrifice in the big picture.
How cute is this new step-ladder/wall art too? Comes with a bunch of great poses as well!
This lovely new skin I am wearing – Sophia – will be available at the Around The World Event starting on the 15th. It gave me an opportunity to take a close up pic, and mess around a bit in Photoshop. Plussss, you get a good shot of the new eyes I’m wearing, I love them! Especially the color (hazel) because that is my RL eye color.
And I thought I’d dress it all up with this really beautiful jewelry set, which comes with a hud and has a nice selection of color change options!
