You didn’t think it would be too long before I was prancing around in some sorta costumes, right? If you’ve been with me since the beginning you know this is like my faveeeee time of year. I love dressing up and having a bit of Halloween fun. I will gladly take the opportunity to exploit the holiday ALL month.
Thank you Collabor88 for giving me lots of new ways to do it this month. My outfit, adorb pink kicks, hair and *squeeeee* mask are all from this round- which opened today!
Oh yeah, and you can even find this absolutely perfect little seasonal cottage at Collabor88 too! The fantastic pumpkins on the porch aren’t from the event, but if you check out the deets below the cut I will tell you where to grab them too
I am so freakin’ pleased it is September, and while in RL that means it is still summer in my part of the world – at least in SL I can just presto-chango – - FALL.
TURTLENECKS AND SCARVES Y’ALL! Turtlenecks and scarves.
Oh, I got off subject I think maybe – point being that this round of Collabor88 is all about FALL. What a great way to roll in the season, a whole event full of wonderful new pieces for your wardrobe and home.
I’m wearing Hair, Skin, Dress, Boots and Necklace all from this round of Collabor88 – I can tell you you definitely need every last item!
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!!
When a week goes by without a new TRUTH release, I’m a bit sad I’ll admit. So since it has been a while I’ve been craving and needing a fix. Welp, not only did he release SIX new styles but he has re done all of his hair packs with updated colors and color combos! On top of that is the soon to be opened new store design (so if you are wanting to shop – don’t be surprised by the temporary location!).
This was my fave of the 6, and as you’ve noticed I took a close up shot and a full body. My close up is to enter the TRUTH Model Search Contest. The contest is being held on flickr, you can submit your images (be sure to read the guidelines and comply), and enter to win prizes and a chance to have your face on the TRUTH store walls!
So go grab some new hair and get to photographing!
Collabor88 has a really fun theme this month! I love all of the things the creators have come together to make it work too.
I’m sharing a few of my faves – The umbrella, hair, top and skirt are all from this round!
I love the flower that is on the underside of this great umbrella, and there are a few cute poses to hold it, this one worked well with the pose I was using on the balcony.
One of those great things I’ve mentioned before about collabor88 is that you can piece together different tops/bottoms and they all work so well when everyone is working off the same theme – which is exactly what I did here.
And finally this skybox! I LOVE it…so much that I’ve set up my new residence in it. It is set to a rainy theme, and comes complete with the rain! Love! I thought I’d share some interior shots so you can see just what a perfect layout it has (besides being absolutely gorgeous to look at):
For me – small spaces are ideal. I like to be able to fill them up with all of my favorite things and make it feel just like home. So the “studio” feel of this space suits me perfect. While the bedroom/living/kitchen are all open they still have definite defining spaces. Plus the perfect roomy bathroom. So happy to be “home”!
I took some pics over the weekend (see above) for the blog. The first image of the AMAZING new tree house – which is available at Collabor88 right now – was featured on Flickr explore over the weekend. I was so hugely flattered that they chose my picture and now I am pretty sure I will NEVER have another picture with that many views LOL! Anyway, most of the credit is due to Cory Edo and her incredible skills as a mesh creator in Second Life. So I cannot take entirely too much praise for it!
Annnnywho, I have lots of other goodies to share from collab besides the remarkable home. Hair, Necklace, Top, and skirt – ALL available at Collabor88, and I’ve again mixed up some clothing from different designers. <3
Oh! AND The lovely table, chairs and bunting can all also be found at collab, like you need more reason to visit?! Read More
Favorite. Collabor88 Event. EVER. The theme this round is New Romance. Everything is pretty colors, soft, feminine. Lovely.
I will probably need to blog another dozen times to share all the things I am loving this round. So you might just want to head over and buy it all in the meantime!
What I’m wearing from Collabor88? Hair, Necklace, Top & Skirt! AND my pose is also from the event. I mixed things up by combining a shirt from one creator and a skirt from another, which really…isn’t that the idea of collab? Love when things go together so well!
This month’s Collabor88 is full of fun vibrant colors! I particularly loved this top and skirt, the bold pattern of the top with the softer skirt. Makes me feel like spring is just around the corner. Meanwhile they are expecting a blizzard up north! Ooops!
In addition to the lovely dress you can also find this hair, ring, hat and EVEN the wild makeup I’m rocking.. all at Collabor88!
I finally decided to put some clothes on. Mainly because I had these fantastic new pants that needed wearing. They are mesh, and the bow belt is color change via hud. I thought I’d dress them up a bit since I had this fur tippet/necklace set I’ve been meaning to use. Plus… hello gorgeous new hand bag that was just released = Perfection!
