Tomorrow is the 8th. Well…technically it is the 8th for me right now since it is just after midnight, but as far as your Second Life is concerned, it is tomorrow. Glad we cleared that up.
Why am I mentioning this? Collabor88!!! *does my happy collabor88 dance*
I have managed for once to get in an early posting because I am so in freaking love with this dress. I put it on, and knew I had to take a pic in my new garden. But it isn’t just the dress…this hair.. are you kidding me? amazing. And even this lovely necklace that finishes off the whole look – all of it you can grab at Collabor88. (when it opens.. which is tomorrow, okay.)
When I logged in to blog this afternoon I realized it has been a month since my last blog. I have to apologize to my readers… I don’t think I’ve ever gone that long without blogging since I started my blog. My RL is under quite a bit of stress, and I’ve had to really change my priorities. I hope I will be able to blog more often again soon. In the mean time… don’t give up on me <3
Annnnnywho. Today is the best day of the month… Collabor88 opened. Wooooo! Nothing gets me logging in like seeing what all of my favorite creators have done with a common theme. This one is fabulous, as you can tell. I’ve completely restocked my office apparel & accessories
So… the desk, and numerous accessories even the skybox I’m photographing in are all from collabor88 AND what I am wearing from my shoes to my clothes, hair and even my glasses… all can be found there as well.
I’ve had some major RL shit that has been keeping me occupied, but I had taken these pics like a week ago, so I might as well blog em eh?
I do have to say though, I was listening to this song quite a few times, and I had this vision in my head of what I might wear to blog, and when I went to look through the items sent to me, this was all like BAM, perfect.
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”!
