I’m not dead. I’ve just been in an uninspired blogging funk. I have however, still been playing in sl and in photoshop and whatnot. Even though there’s not much clothing on these, I figured I could share my entries for the Shag Hair contest going on.
Well hay! It’s been a while. RL has been kicking my ass. This post is full of so much awesome that it pretty much blogged itself 😛
HOD has a couple of new sets out and hopefully I get around to the others, but featured here is the Symphony set. It’s a gorgeous collaboration with an exclusive tattoo layer from Nuuna’s and a the torso freeze is from Meya. Definitely a stunning set!
First…look of the day.
skin: leafy – @ SSE luna – toffee
freckles: rozena – @ culture shock. freckles more

OK! So generally for my blog I just do the 3 poses on my background. No shadows. No photoshop except for extract/copy/paste. No liquify…NOTHING (I’m a lazy blogger). However, I do enjoy playing in photoshop but I rarely do that for my blog posts. The blogs I look at have a wide range of styles and pictures and since I actually felt like playing around for the above look, it left me wondering: What kind of photos do you guys like to see on a blog? On location? White background? Picture quality? Not just on this blog, but overall. I made a poll just out of curiousity and I’d love you long time if you answered<3 Also, please feel free to comment and elaborate.
Since I work nights in RL this will most likely be the only post I make for this bc I won’t get back in and there are still a ton to set up D: BUT! Here are some gorgeous new faces I snagged<3
These are quickly touched up for jagged edges and all, but not too much.
Left to right:
PXL: Gaia – I actually purchased before per the VIP program, but it’s set up there so I can show off 😛

As Berry pointed out, there’s a couple of contests going on right now, and seeing as I’m trying to get more practice in lately I decided to participate in a few. I did 2 entries for this one, but the 2nd isn’t really a spring theme. Just an idea I had that I wanted to run with.
Haha! I had a task to use a muse to create an outfit, but still keep it true to me. I chose the beyond gorgeous Dita Von Teese and this is what i came up with:
corset: schadenfreude – corset frozen waist
strap corset: axe – take it off suspenders corset
skirt: *!t – circus jerk black
bracelet: rawdolls – nothing but trinkets
knee pads: sn@tch
stockings: vextra messing – fishnet stockings
shoes: pm – baby t
dimple piercings: hod – dimpled
I bought a ton already and not everyone is set up yet D: Take away my linden piggy bank, dammit.
Couple of things I snagged:
Skin: Pink Fuel – Elly Candied
Freckles and Eyes: Rozena – Freckles: More and Eyes: Moist Black
Top: Acid & Mala – Boho Chic Mini Top
I’ll include unedited pics of this skin in my upcomming post<3
