I can’t avoid the lightning

I can't avoid the lightning

I have another casual look of the day with things from FaMESHed to finish the week off for you, as well as it being a little photographic therapy for me!

This great jacket is from ::K:: who are a guest for October’s round, it’s also made in both male and female versions which is great for the men since they don’t typically get a lot aimed at them. I like it a lot, particularly the up turned collar. It’s fitted mesh and that that’s my only one issue with it. Honestly, I’m not a great fan of fitted mesh all the time. Perhaps it’s the style of the jacket that it’s meant to look bulky but I typically wear something that is an XS and yet I felt like this was more of a M. On the plus side that does mean it’s easier to wear mesh pants under it. Even though I decided not to!

Another new item are these great Penny boots from JD – also a participating guest at FaMESHed. They come with the mesh socks included, which you can show/hide and texture change via the HUD. There is also a Belleza Venus and The Mesh Project version included, so you can wear them with your mesh bodies! They’re a perfect staple for the cooler seasons approaching, and I highly recommend them.

Hope everyone had a good week, here’s to the weekend!

Never Meant To Start A War

Never Meant To Start A War

I don’t take personal pictures very often, really, really rarely actually. I usually just point my camera, snap something and edit however I think looks pretty. But today this picture actually does have a bit of a personal meaning behind it and I enjoyed doing it a lot. Maybe I should do more.

Anyway the item I really wanted to show off is this amazing formal dress from Peqe. It’s out at the We <3 RP event at a discounted price in two colours, the gold and black as well as a pale blue and white. There are other colours available at the Peqe main store at full price. I've really loved Peqe's last 2 releases and I'm excited to see more from them.

Not Gonna Write You A Love Song

Not Gonna Write You A Love Song

I wanted to try out this technique that Miss Berry made a tutorial for a couple of weeks ago, and today seemed like a good day, so I roped in Mister who blogs at Arya’s Heart and turned him to dust! Muahahaha

I’m doing another kind of gothic look I guess, with this new Salome dress from Bilo. It’s available in a few dark colours, obviously I just went for classic black. It’s a mesh/layer hybrid with the top being a texture layer, glitch layer pants and a mesh attachment that flows around the legs. It’s a classic formal dress with a sexy cutout front so you can show a bit of cleavage!

I’m not gonna list all of Misters credits coz to be honest, I dunno them! But I do know he is wearing the mesh suit from Kauna that was out for May’s round at FaMESHed.

Short and sweet today, ciao!

Weekenders

Weekenders

Ok yea, I know it’s only Tuesday but a girl can dream can’t she? After I got so dressed up in not a lot yesterday I wanted to do a more casual look today, which was perfect because Drift just released the weekend tee and capris! I love oversized t shirts and this one with the slipped shoulder reminds me why we’re so much better off with mesh. I remember trying to wear a shirt like that before mesh, system top and prim parts…it just wasn’t happening!

I added the new Minimalist Glasses from Boom that you can find at C88. They’re unisex and come in several different colours. I don’t usually wear glasses but I love these ones and thought they worked with this outfit.

Finally, the little bag on the table is a freebie that you can get on the lucky board at Le Poppycock, I’ve been meaning to use it in a post for a while but hadn’t gotten round to it till today. Anyway it’s cute and modifiable so you can make it bigger or smaller as you like it. Love a freebie!

November Collabor88

It’s the 8th again so C88 opened the doors on their new round with the theme Painted Desert! Lot’s of lovely pretties to be had this month and I was inspired by the retro feel of this hobo fur jacket from Fashionably Dead and the pants by Boom. I also added the new Alchemy Charm Coins necklace by Maxi Gossamer that you can pick up at C88, the set comes with both gold and silver versions with 4 different lengths that you can wear seperately or grouped together. The hair is mesh and was released by Truth last week to complete the look!

Monday

Happy Monday! Never thought I’d say that but I feel like I’ve been genuinely spoilt with all the lovely new releases over the weekend so it’s a good start to the week.

I’m a little bit slacking because I am wearing the same top (in a different colour and style) and shoes that I was in my last post, but I honestly love them so much that I’ve been reluctant to take them off, so instead I just styled them with some of the new releases from July’s round of FaMESHed.

But the main thing I wanted to talk about in this post is the Animare pose HUD. It’s been around for a while so this is mostly info for anyone who hasn’t heard of it before or is new to taking pics in SL. This is a nifty little dealio that allows you to alter existing poses or create poses/anims in world. Now admittedly I’ve never used it for creating a pose or animation from scratch, there are several softwares that are easier for that but this is great if you just want to adjust a pose you have already. You know how frustrating it is when you find a pose you love but it’s not quite fitted for your shape, you might have a hand poking in your butt or a prop you want to use going through other body parts…well fret no more about that because this is where Animare is perfect.

Here’s a couple of raw shots from SL with the exact same pose, one before I used Animare to adjust it and one after. You can see that I did change the upper part of this pose quite dramatically and this is the first time that I’ve used Animare for such a big change, but I was happy with the results so I thought I’d share. I moved my left arm out a bit so that the bag wasn’t cutting through my leg, I changed my right hand so that the coffee cup that had completely disappeared into my leg was up and in front of me and I lifted my chin so that my head didn’t dip.

The HUD itself is quite simple to use, you click the body joint that you want to change and then turn it up and down for back/forth etc, but this will require a little bit of playing around with until you get the hang of what moves what, although that is a small price to pay and I think it’s definitely worth it to create that perfect picture.

Hope you all enjoy your week!

Maternity SLipster Style

A month or so ago I had been on the verge of packing away the majority of my non mesh clothing items, but I’m so glad I didn’t because recycling has become my thing since we started playing pregnant. So I’m not showing any new releases here, but rather an outfit that is suitable to wear if you’re carrying a bump around like I am.

I’ve decided that any posts I make while I’ve got the bump will be outfits that can be worn with or without it (unless someone brings out a fantabulous maternity mesh line in the next couple of weeks), because not only can I not wear most mesh items but I can’t even really wear anything that has prim parts around the stomach either, so it’s not easy to look up to date with this shape.

However! My recycling is working and even though it takes me three times as long to put an outfit together (unless I’m wearing those freebie Jane tanks haha) I think today I managed to pull it off. So this is me in an old Tres Blah dress, it does have a prim attachment but this sits nicely just above the bump with a tiny bit of editing. I know from this picture at the top you can’t even notice the bump, so here’s another view just to prove I’ve got a fat belly!

Well that’s me for today, I won’t bore you all with my maternity woes every time I post don’t worry, but since I noticed that pretty much no one else does any maternity related posts I thought it would be a nice change now and then…but believe me, I’m counting the days to the due date because I can’t wait to get my hands on some new mesh!
