3rd Day at the Cinema

17 Oct

Playing with comic book effect in Photoshop

 

The Cinema in SL is quite huge! 80 stores on an all mesh sim, it’s flippin’ awesome too! So awesome that I have yet to finish going all around to the stores. I bought quite a few fabulous things that unfortunately I have not had the chance to snap photos all of and post in my blog (I am such a shitty blogger). For instance, to name a few, I purchased the Penis Pumps (in nude) by HANDverk, *BOOM* I Promise lingerie set, Caroline’s Jewelry Vintage Key Necklace, Wasabi Pills Nikki Mesh Hair, and Cheeky Pea’s Likeable Things table set (above).

I love SL fashion, but what I really live for in SL is furniture and interior decorating. I was so stoked about my table set from Cheeky Pea that I snapped a bunch of photos of me sitting at it on my pavilion. The image above is just one of the images, but I decided to have some fun with it a bit and try giving it a comic book effect. Being a relatively new Photoshop user, I am learning all the tricks and effects and I am having some fun learning them!

So, I have no pictures….well I do, but they are not done yet. I haven’t written an entry in a couple of weeks. I’ve been too busy! I always praise SL bloggers for being able to blog so frequently. I wish I had the time. I calculated how many hours I worked last week. You may not think this is humanly possible, but I worked 90 hours last week! 90 hours! I could hardly Plurk! This week is less, but not by much. I swear, I’m gaining weight in RL because of my stress levels. I keep snacking round the clock. I am going to have to go on a diet in a couple weeks (not right now because eating more makes me feel better, plus a couple pounds isn’t going to kill me). Luckily, I have the luxury of working from home, but working from home comes at a price….my time! I have been working on a few series of photographs in SL, a couple of sexy ones (one in which I am going to ask a SL friend to model in) and 1 fashion one, but it’s going to take me a few weeks to get them going. I really want them to be the best work I’ve done so far so I am taking my time figuring out what I want out of them. I’m also trying to get a RL life. I just work too much. So, though I have been MIA after I just started this blog, I definitely plan on working on more content. It’s just going to take me some time. So, my 5 followers, please stay tuned….

Robbery at convenience store in Nestlefire

I’m always looking around for places to snap photos in Second Life (like every other SL photographer. DUH!), forever on the search for stunning, if not just interesting, sims. Since I am relatively new to SL photography, I try to challenge myself, not spend any money (using what I have in my inventory) and do something different each time. One evening/afternoon/who-knows (I took this photo weeks ago) while wandering from place to place, I ended up in Nestlefire. Nestlefire appears to be a nearly abandoned place where the only thing available is a shifty hotel, restaurant/cafe, grocery store, an abandoned house where I stumbled over a dead body and a torture chamber, and a gas station. I walked into the gas station and immediately thought that this place would be a great scene for a super sexy, gun-toting, tattoo wearing, shaved hair sporting, feisty chica in red pumps to come in and scare the living wits out of the grocery clerk. Alright, maybe I only had the gun toting part in mind. The rest came later. Well, the grocery clerk part was not an option for me, but I imagined her standing with guns in hand wearing a laissez-faire facial expression. Two guns might be a slight exaggeration, but who gives a shit. It’s my photo. After all, she is a lone criminal, free of the constraints of man, trying to make her own way in the world one robbery at a time, with looks to kill! Oh, that sounds like a great drama TV series! Okay maybe not, but you get the point.

Unfortunately, nothing I am wearing is new. This post is not a fashion post, but just a photographic artist post. The shoes are from Mstyle, pants from Auxiliary, shirt from…I’ll have to look it up and insert later, hair from Wasabi Pills, and guns from Bounce This (comes with a pose, but I used a different pose with the props).

Kennedy Dress from !Rebel Hope

…and bought the Kennedy wrap dress from !Rebel Hope. I am suppose to be saving my pennies, but I loved it so much that I had to get it. Here I go wearing it with another new acquisition from Magika Hair. This was my first time purchasing hair from Magika and I love it! I also purchased Natalie from Magika for a Fall look that I am putting together. I’m sure I will post a photo of me wearing it in this blog at some point.

October – FaMESHed

At the wee hours of  the morning, I went to FaMESHed to get my sight seeing, item buying, socializing on. Every month I TP into FaMESHed at the stroke of Midnight, struggle to see more than a sea of gray, pushing myself through the jagged lag of a busy sim, looking to catch sight of some designers and bloggers I know, many of which I only know from Plurk and never see inworld, and to shop for the latest and greatest mesh items just released. This month, I bought a large parcel on a sim, so I am a bit low on funds. So, my pennies could only stretch to accommodate two items – my oversized Cory sweater from erratic and my Izumi mesh hair from Wasabi Pills. I spent much time pining over what to buy first even though I do have a few more weeks to go back for more. I intend to get my hands on a Meshworx Hive lamp,  [HANDverk] Antler chair and that beautiful Kennedy mesh dress from !Rebel Hope that I MUST have. I’ll be back! I swears, I shall go back!

All Dressed Up With Nowhere to Go

Lady in Red

I bought this dress on a whim today for a party and loved it so much that I wanted to blog it. This dress is by the very talented and beloved Harry Hyx, owner and designer of ISON, which is one of my favorite clothing stores in SL. It’s simply called the cowl neck dress and, yes you guessed it, it’s mesh. I love mesh clothing. ISON never disappoints, giving us very sophisticated yet sexy clothing. Wearing ISON’s clothes makes me feel quite powerful and vampy, like Kim Cattrall’s character, Samantha Jones, from Sex in the City. A dress this commanding deserves to be styled naked, so I limit accessories. I paired this dress with a pair of pumps from Mstyle shoes.

Skin and Shape – Lelutka – Ife (Dark)

Hair – [elikatira] – Looking (Dark Brown)

Dress – ISON – Cowel Neck Dress (Mesh)

Shoes – Mstyle – Goshi pumps (Black)

Pose – aDORKable – Elegant
