NUFFIN’ BUT MY HAIR, SKIN & SHOES!

L'invitation

This picture was taken more than 2 months ago for someone who didn’t answer to the invite. For once, i tried to be a bit more naughty than i usualy am but trying to keep it elegant. Too bad for him! Now, at least, Alysha’s Renahan’s new plurker challenge gives me the occasion to do something of it.

While I don’t have a problem with nudity, going naked is not really my thing. My fun is about getting dressed. So, enjoy this picture because you won’t see many like it here!

It’s All In The Background

Hello,

“It’s All In The Background” is this week’s blogger challenge from Alysha Rennahan. A lot of bloggers will go for a simple white background and won’t post-process their pictures. Some in world windlight magic will make textures and prims look at their best. Sometimes, people who have no idea about using windlight will already feel they are not being shown what they can get in world. Pictures are taken pretty rapidly, minimal work but cropping and adding a background shadow. This is great when you have a lot of new releases to show. The focus is on the outfit, not on the picture in itself.

Paige White

For sure, the avatar is the center of the focus but it looks a bit sad to me. So, I am usualy going for pictures with a background. But then, the nightmare of looking for the right background begins… according to the outfit, you need to find the appropriate sim, with the right colors, theme, etc. Sometimes, I don’t blog cause i haven’t found the background i was looking for. It adds a whole atmosphere to the picture, it can change completely the way people will feel about the outfit.

Snackbar

In the picture above, i’ve chosen a snackbar from YB Prod as a decor. A place where you can expect people to wear such clothes. As I’ve used a background, i want my avatar to pop out of the picture so i am post-processing. For the most part, the post-process work consists in adding shadows (my computer doesn’t handle in world shadows), and then to make an orton effect, playing with the layers blends. Finaly, I am adjusting the colors using curves, saturation and vibrance to have them look closer to the original snapshot though brighter and shinier.

Finaly, here are 2 pictures using roughly the same outfit, the same pose, the same chair from the Season Hunt. The background conditionates the post-process. I tried to use the exact same settings and the second picture turned out to be a green ugly blur. I had to do something completely different in the end.

Cattails

The background is just another piece of the look. It can make it look sweet, lovely, trash, violent or commonplace so choose them wisely!

Yesterday is Today

Hello,

Yesterday, i was unable to take pictures in SL as big black lines were appearing on my snapshots. After a whole evening trying to find out what was going out and finaly just reinstalling, I’m presenting you yesterday’s look today. I wanted to title the post “When I love Friday” as Fifty Linden Friday and Rocking Friday have spoiled us with high quality items this week. I’ve mixed items from the 2 last fridays so at the moment when i am writing this post, most are probably not available anymore. Sorry.

Emma 25092010

I am also wearing the new Laqroki skin, Nellie. The face has much more temper than the previous 2 releases, a grown up woman who wouldn’t mind being a bitch at times if you’re trying to annoy her. It is going to be a hit for sure.

In the woods

Hello,

Just a few words to tell you to run to Exile: 5 brand new haircuts at 50% price to celebrate the 3rd anniversary of the brand. I am wearing here one of them, Serana, a gorgeous floating long style, full of movement. While I was at Exile, I admit i’ve inspected someone wearing a wonderful medieval gown from Quality Design. With those hair and gown colors, I wanted a fall decor so I went to visit Alirium and voilà, here is today’s pic!

Origami Journalist

Hello,

This fun ensemble is !Ohmai’s proposal for the continuation of the Designer United Fair. Several participants have decided to gather once again to show us the creations they had imagined for the themes which were not selected for the last DU4: 60 space age, metamorphosis and the last one, Origami. The Designer Unlimited 19 is hosted at the Slow sim and there are plenty of funny items to get there.

The jacket is made of old New York Times newspapers, which are orginaly assembled to give that 1930/40’s look to the ensemble and we can see here a smart use of the system skirt for the bottom.
