Tillie Posing Stand

Tillie postprocessed

For any Second Life Fashion blogger, there is one item you absolutely need and which makes your life so much easier, it is a posing stand. Basicly, you drop your poses in it and scroll through them to choose the one which will compliment your outfit the best. Poses are so important to make good pictures. I cannot imagine going on blogging without my dear [Tillie] Posing Stand. I have it for years and it has never failed me. For beginners, it is even delivered with poses from reknown poses shops, being Diesel Works and Glitterati.

Occasionnaly, Tillie Ariantho is adding new features to her creation and you automatically receive a new box full of wonders. The last 4.0 version is bringing a very neat option: “[new] light/huds: You can now click a button in the blue LIGHT menu and on the hud LIGHT page to make lights follow the nearest avatar: button FOLLOW. This will make the light always being directed towards the nearest avatar.” I just love that. For a long time I have been avoiding playing with spotlights in Second Life because I was finding it too long to set up. Nuw, you just click a button and it is set. I don’t see how to make it easier.

While snapshotting the picture in world was easier, I had a bit more trouble to rework the light and shadows (dodge and burn) in Photoshop as there are three sources of light. For the rest, I have kept the same postprocessing method I usualy do, that is cleaning the picture than playing with curves (a lot), adding contrast, vibrance and then lowering the saturation. Here below, you see the raw shot before working on it.

February Fameshed

Snow

The Secret Store has a new pretty dress available at FaMESHed in several colors ranging from soft and romantic like snow or vanilla to more daring and vivid tones like teal mixed with orange. While I was there, I have picked boots from Coco and a leather vest from Emery.

In my world, short dress + boots = 60’s look but I did not want to be too much of a babydoll so I have chosen the Ava Skin from Belleza, which suits a grown up woman rather than a young girl. The Virginie hairstyle is one of this week’s releases from Truth. Like always, the eyes are from Ikon. To finish the look, I am wearing the new Atiriya jewelry set from Zaara and mesh nails from Pixel Mode.

A third version of the Lily skin is now available at Belleza. This one has red brows and freckles. The face is a great combination of softness and feminity yet thanks to the shading, it doesn’t look too young.

Reading feeds has become very valuable for me since I am often away from Second Life lately and I miss a lot of new releases. I was happy to learn that Emery is joining the mesh bandwagon. I am showing here a yummy top but there is also a short dress with ethnic prints. You can also admire on a lot blogs the new mesh hair by DeLa. The styles are so very sexy and feminine, perfect for the new shape I am working on. I would have wished a bit more contrast in the textures, or roots options and they would have been perfect for me.

I have played again with hair brushes, a bit too much but it was fun so I couldn’t stop. I have refined a bit the Taylor shape so maybe I will release it soon. The body is much more curvy when what I am used to make but it looks very sexy this way while still fitting a size M.
