Cherry on Top

Original Cherry

Today I bring you all things cherry prompted by the super fabulous Lucinda Dress, a new product by DeathRocker Bettie Crocker that was created for the 9th Pre-Release Event which opened on Sunday. It also gave me a reason to throw on a pair of Chandra’s latest creation from her Pin-Up collection, these awesomely hot, super swank Peggy Sue Pin-Up boots from deviousMind! (to die for cute!!!) One can never have too many cherries!

Cherry On Top

The stark background of the original image, although extremely cool with some hand drawn details, seemed to beg for some overlays and textures. So with a heavy and non-experienced hand I began to manipulate the images. I now see why so many bloggers photoshop elements into their pictures – it is quite fun. I love how the image appears more painterly, however I have a long way to go to get this technique perfected. I added my first attempts here so I can watch my images progress…. hopefully in a good direction. LOL

Cherry Pie

I adore the effortlessness of DeePosed poses. It is easy to see why Dee’s poses are used by so many photographers as they lend a smooth and gestural element to images. In this image the pose elevates the hipness of the outfit and adds a flair of fun. Boom Chicka Boom Wow Wow.

DeVine Spirit

Just living is not enough…one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower.

The outfit is available in 4 color palettes, each using different flower arrangements.

Crumpled

Duchess laid motionless on the edge of the surf following a brutal marathon swim that ended at the land of Loki. She felt a presence but was too washed-out to care and again the world went dark.

You Found Me

Gentle arms encircled her body and she was slowly lifted out of the water. A soothing voice entranced her and she awoke in the arms of her hero.

To Be Continued…

Beachy Vogue

Beachy Vogue

I do believe my favorite part of this ultra voguish beach outfit by Mosoom is the enormous brimmed sun hat that is so beautifully textured and stylize. There doesn’t seem to be a bad angle and every movement my avatar makes while wearing it seems a bit more elegant. Coupled with Razmataz’s new model poses from the Pose Fair made for the perfect fit for the ambiance I was trying to achieve at my newly constructed deco pool!
Deco Beach

I need to find a pair of thick round black sunglasses and I will be good to go for pool season!

Chapter One: Mermaid Diaries

April 9, 2013 at 10:35 am (Mermaid Diaries, Pre-Release Event, Second Life Events, SecondLife Art) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Sanctuary

Duchess circled the cave twice with a heavy heart and as she reached the opening she couldn’t help but turn back. Sadness crept though her like an ink spot in calm water slowly enveloping her courage.
Beckoned

The rays of sunlight that penetrated the deep waters beckoned her upward. Ahead laid the greatest journey of her long life. With the strength of Zeus in her fins and Aphrodite in her heart, Duchess left the safe sanctuary of her abode.
Surfacing

Slowly she ascended from the depths of the cold dark sea following her heart upward to the oxygen filled world of the finless creatures known to those in the deep as Loki.
Duchess Emerging

Duchess raised her hands to the sun breaking the surf …. her fingers dripped with freedom.

To Be Continued……

The poses in the above story use the first set in a series of poses by elephante poses from the new Storybook Pose Collection. There will be 10 items total per chapter and the above poses, Surfacing, are part of Chapter One and are being sold at the Pre-Release event this round!

It’s a Mad World….

Braided Courage

Gopu and I were checking out the super cool monochromatic NV Madworld sim art and I snapped some pictures as we played on the dangerous boxes and teased the black crow in the shop. Ah… now that is living on the edge! We will definitely be returning to take photos outside in the surreal landscape. Fantastic white grass, floating bubbles, drops of suspended water and dark abstract art. Swing by and check it out if you haven’t it is a great place for a photo shoot.

This Pre-Release round’s theme is Designers Choice and there is a virtual smorgasbord of designs awaiting your lindens! Every item at Pre-Release is 125L or less … more bang for your buck! I adore this tied top and skirt outfit from FireBird Designs! The skull on the mesh shirt stole my little pixel heart! Smexy! I am also wearing Pre-Release jewelry from Pheobe and Pomposity. A fabulous lady bug ring and a scorpion necklace that dangerously hangs between my girls. I’m smitten!

 
Let Them Eat Crow

Gopu’s dotted shirt is also from this round of Pre-Release. The mesh shirt is extremely well made and the texture is unbelievably realistic in world. Doesn’t he look hot! Smirk
