KoKoLoRes Pose

I went out and found a couple of new poses to work with taking pictures of yourself wearing jewelry. This is to show the jewelry off better in images if you were a jeweler. Mostly used for ad work, but also good if you are blogging jewelry. Pose fair opened on April 11th. I picked out two poses that would work good with showing jewelry. One from Kokolores and another from Kirin. You can see in the pictures how they’d work well. I also love the attitude shown from the body language in the Kirin pack.

Kirin Pose

The dress is from Stellar at the !nterlude event. The designers were to listen to a song list as inspiration. Lexi chose Blondie – Heart of Glass. I love everything about this dress, and even though it isn’t made for the Maitreya Lara Body it worked well with it. I’ve always admired Lexi’s designs, but this is my first time purchasing one. ❤


To match the dress I went to Flair and found this perfect Maitreya Body nail polish applier. There are several colors in the hud, I chose the brown and yellow fingernail polish to go with this outfit. The toenail polish in this pack only only comes in solid colors.

My blonde hair was picked up at The Seasons Story. Oleander is another “new to me” designer. I love the hairstyle and the blondes texture pack. I do wish that the script could be deleted out of the hair.

The cute shoes are from Ingenue at Collabor88. In the pack are Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya fit shoes. I like the big bow with studs on the top. Betty always makes the perfect shoe.

In keeping with trying out new designers; I found these bracelets at The Dressing Room FUSION. I haven’t shopped there in a really long time. The Cannes Bracelets that I have on are by YS&YS. It has a hud for resizing, and there is no removal of the scripts.

The earrings and necklace are both from ANE. They are from different releases, but go well together. I lean more towards simple jewelry, but I do love the chunky earrings worn here. The Yummy ring is from an older gacha that is still available at her main store location in Tableau.

I could not find a script removal in any of the scripted products. This is something that perhaps designers could look into. SecondLife is laggy enough without us wearing several scripted products.

I am going to try and focus at least once or twice a month on jewelry. I would hope that I know a thing or two about jewelry in SecondLife since I made it for over 10 years. Finding hair and poses that show off your jewelry can be hard. It is great when you can find a hair that shows off the ears for your earrings, and doesn’t cover up too much of the chest where your necklace lies. I’ll try and help you find ones that work.

The three mesh necklaces in this post are from ANE. The first necklace is The Fool necklace found at the Tarot event. This piece is a little edgy with the spikes. In the middle, the Moth Wings Let it Go necklace can be worn with the words or just with all moth wings. Very pretty and easy to wear with most anything. My favorite of the three is the Botanical necklace. I really love delicate necklaces and wear them in real life. This is also more the style that I stuck to when I made jewelry.

For these shots I used !bang poses 475-479 pack, which can be found at the Shiny Shabby event. The poses I chose for the shots have the model standing upright with a slight turn to the left and the right.

I have never worn Moon hair before, but I loved this one so much that I had to have it. This hairstyle is swept to one side allowing one of the ears to showcase your earrings, and it has ample room for the necklace on the chest. I bought this at Uber in the variety pack because I needed all of the colors.

The off the shoulder dress is from Tee*fy. A dress in this style works really well with necklaces that lay on your upper chest. The dress texture was too busy for the long necklace. The piece gets lost in the chevron print. I chose my Tres Blah Angora sweater to wear with that. Both the dress and the top are at Collabor88 for a few more days. Very few. You should be able to find them later at the mainstore, and you can find the locations on my slurls page.

Because I also love to decorate! The rectangular framed pictures are from Trompe Loeil at FaMESHed. The rest of the decor is from Apple Fall. Caroline is getting ready to go on a trip. She has her map out for last minute planning, luggage packed, and is grabbing a quick bite of a muffin before hitting the subway.
