Wedding Day Tears

Wedding Day

I was scrolling through Plurk the other day, and I saw someone thank Daeberethwen Arbenlow for her tutorials. I love learning how to take better pictures and how to touch them up. So, I went to her YouTube channel to check out her videos. I must have watched five of them that night. I highly recommend her videos. She has easier ways of going about things and really great tips on photography. Thank you, Daeberethwen!

I don’t know about you, but I love handbags in real life and Second Life. My newest addition comes from Zenith. You can pick this up (along with the outfit) at Kustom9. The backpack has an animation arm hold in it that can be turned on or off. The outfit and bags come in a variety of fall colors. Best of all this is a gacha with a 69L pull. All of the colors go well together, so you can mix and match and outfit.

I recently started a Flickr group called for your pics of handbags and purses. Please show them off! I’d love to see what you’re wearing them with. I’ll be inviting some pictures in as I see them.

We Don't Talk Anymore

New top from Neve by Cold Logic. This comfy shirt comes with four color choices by hud. The jeans also come in a variety of denim colors and a color change belt. The main store has other choices such as neutral colors for the tops and bottoms, if you like the look but don’t want plaid or jeans. These items are made for Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, and the standard avatar.

Hold on Tight

Hold on Tight

I’m loving the new Catwa Tumble head. The fatpack version came with two huds. One for emotions, such as blinking, closing your eyes, frowning, smiling, and even sticking out your tongue. You’ll also find that there are preset moods already built in. Another nice option available is to have your mouth mimic talking.

The other hud is for the teeth, head base, lashes, makeups, and skin tones. There are even spaces to save your favorite makeups, so that you don’t have to find another applier hud every time you want to change your look. You can see the price differences broken up by add-on here.

I usually stick to Glam Affair skins. But, I did pick up several other brands to see how their makeup appliers looked. And I liked quite a few of them. One of the reasons that I don’t use other brands is because not only do you have to buy the makeup applier but also the mesh body applier. Glam Affair has their skin appliers built in the Maitreya Lara body hud. After trying some of these I might just have to go shopping. Do you have a favorite?

Not Today Satan

Not Today Satan

My friend Gogo started a group on Flickr called Elevation. The idea is to be in daring areas like ledges hundreds of feet above the ground. Chances are that you won’t get hurt if you fall in SecondLife. If you do a picture like this tag it #elevation and add it to the Elevation Flickr group. It would be interesting to see everyone’s daring ideas. You can check out Gogo’s on her blog.

I chose Neverfar as my location. It’s a very calm and relaxing kind of sim. I took a picture from above to show the height. The pose is from Kirin’s sitting pretty set. The gorgeous hairstyle is Valerie from MINA. Tee is from Tres Blah at the Arcade. My skort is a new release from Rebel Hope. The wedge shoes are from Reign.

Hope you decide to give it a try!

Alt by Truth now for Maitreya Lara and Belleza, too

Cruise Foto

Truth Hawks started making a clothing line recently. The first releases were for TMP body only. From what I have seen most people use Maitreya Lara, Slink, or Belleza bodies. TMP probably comes in fourth. There is a TMP mesh body free version, but it is limited to what you can do with it. And most of the clothes released from designers are for the previously mentioned bodies.

When Truth’s clothing line ALT by Truth updated the clothing releases for Maitreya Lara and Belleza – Venus, Freya, and Isis I said hallelujah. I’m wearing the new Cruise dress on my Maitreya Lara mesh body. This comes in 10 solid colors and 8 prints. The belt also has 11 colors of choice.

My jewelry is a new collection from Cae. The included hud offers a choice of 10 gems and 3 metals. You can pick up this necklace and earrings set at the Cosmopolitan event.

My friend Gogo reviewed FotoJet, which is an online photo editor. Since I had just finished my blog picture I thought I’d give it a try. It was easy to use. I added the polaroid frame and some bokeh. I also played around with the hazing a little bit. This is a free online photo editor, but could possibly have a fee in the future. The editor that I use when I want to add a little extra to my pictures is PicMonkey. Most of the editing tools here are free, but some come with a subscription.
