Hello,

Africa 80 3

What do you do when you have new khaki shorts by Zaara, a new skin from Dutch Touch, new shoes from MIEL and a new hairstyle from LeLutka? Well, I don’t know about you but I went on a safari!

Africa 80 2

I admit I’ve taken my inspiration from a picture by Nedeko Kohime. I am a big fan of her photography work. Look, I’ve got the same necklace from League!

A Walk in the Dunes

Hello,

A walk in the dunes 3

When I was a kid and a teenager, I used to spend all the Easter Holidays at the Belgium Coast, more exactly, in the Westhoek, a place between dunes and woods. Now, it is full of buildings and all the places where I used to play as a kid are gone. I am trying to recreate an idealized version of it in Second Life where my avatar could have a walk.

A walk in the dunes

For this walk, i’ve chosen a girlish outfit with shorts from Fishy Strawberry you can find in a pack with plenty of other goodies for a very low price at The Dressing Room. The top is a new release from Acid & Mala for only 60 L$ for Super Bargain Saturday.

A walk in the dunes Portrait

The wonderful harstyle is one of the new releases from LeLutka. It is made of two parts, the bangs being attached to the chest but it can also be worn without for a more stylish effect. Note I’ve moded the bows to color them blue as they are normaly only black, brown or tan.

Eggplant

Hello,

Eggplant Portrait

For the 52 weeks of color challenge eggplant, I will start with these fabulous eyes from FASHISM. They just have everything you are looking for: details, rich colors in a wide variety, depth, reflections, they come in five different sizes. The eyes are complimented by a new make-up from elymode and PXL Linda G3 with lilac lipstick to create an harmony of purples.

Eggplant_007

I’ve been wearing this new print dress from MichaMi for 3 days already. I adore this dress and the vintage feeling it has. I am wearing socks from Mushie in light grey and the Gos Curvaceous boots in grey as I wanted neutral colors accessories to emphasize the effect of the print of the dress.

I am also wearing the d’Jango necklace and bangles in silver from MOOD Jewelry, a simple and elegant set which completes the look pretty nicely.

Back Home

Hello,

Back Home 2

I am finaly back home after roaming the grid for the Seasons Hunt. I haven’t finished it yet but once again, we are spoiled with some wonderful gifts, like this spring hall table by Cheeky Pea. You can barely see it on the pick but the ring is an adorable tiny bird from MAGIC NOOK. Join the The Seasons Hunt(ers) Group in world and start the fun.

Back Home

Of course, while I was hunting, I couldn’t just take the gift and hop to the next store, I had to buy more stuff, including earrings from LaGyo and a bag and a necklace from TokiD. Those accessories were perfect to brighten up my outfit made of the awesome new jeans from WoE, those have great back details which are unfortunately covered by the new tunic from Mon Tissu so I will probably use those pants again in another post to show them.

Digits of the Day

Hello,

Digits of the Day 2

Like most people in the past days, I am sharing some digits about my avatar shapes, answering Strawberry Singh ‘s question.

I tweak my shape almost everyday, change some sliders to fit better an outfit or just because I wonder if it wouldn’t be better this or that way, but always trying to keep the same feeling about the avatar. I am constantly changing so it might very well be that if I shared those digits in one week, they would be pretty different. That is why I am sharing my digits of the day.

With everyone sharing some parameters of their shapes, it is fun to see how different avatars can be and yet all still beautiful. It is also interesting to see that some people will use some sliders in very different ways. I like my avatar to be a bit curvy, so i’ve chosen to use a height below 50 but not too much so I am adding body thickness and body fat. I have been trying to reduce the thickness to 0 but I didn’t like it, I had the feeling the avatar was flat. When playing with the thickness, one of the problems are the shoulders. You quickly can look like you’ve been practicing body building at high dosis. I guess most people will think my avatar has too large shoulders but I like it that way. When I am trying for smaller shoulders, I feel like it is looking like a chicken with a big bottom and a small top.

All in all, I like my shape as it allows me to wear a lot of different clothing from various brands without having to edit too much. A simple resize will often suffice, well maybe not gowns but I am almost never wearing any. I liked Berry’s idea. I am glad to see so many people played the game.

Scooter

Hello,

Scooter

I had written a great post and all about Suri Yangtz poses from [socialANGtz]. It is a great scooter, isn’t it? But well, I have made a mistake and deleted it so… I’ll just add a few words on the pictures.

Scooter 2

Next thing I want to emphasize is the Sn@tch crochet poncho. This texture is so great! I can’t keep looking at it and go “wow”.

Emma Portrait

Finaly, yes, I am designing shapes! Like it or not… I have started to update every single one of them and make new vendors and styling cards and stuff. It is Emma’s turn. This one was easy, it is one of my favorite, kind of the one I would wear if I were not using my own personnal one. And, it works great with the PXL Creations Linda G3 skin so… What about trying a free demo at my store?
