Autumn Leaves

I spent a couple of weeks working on setting up a skydome for a last call autumn pic. I’d hoped to get it up Thanksgiving weekend, but we had too much fun in RL. So here it is, just before I move into holiday/winter frenzy!

When I got to thinking about this post, I decided on the title Autumn Leaves. I liked the play on words, as we transition into winter! We had a freakishly warm autumn here in Colorado (not good for wildfires). But tonight it’s properly cold and snowing and both things make me feel settled and peaceful.

In my Turnip’s Skydome, however, it’s still looking pretty autumnal. If you look closely, there are a few signs a touch of snow fell recently, but mostly it’s about a cozy stone cottage, sitting by the fire, enjoying cozy blankets and settling in with a warm pumpkin spice latte and some good books.

Autumn Leaves

LAQ’s second mesh head is called Maxine. It’s gorgeous, and feels very impish when worn with the default skin applier Evelyn (included in HUD w/purchase)! It’s one of the heads that feels most “me,” although I readily admit I am a bit of a chameleon when it comes to my avatar’s face. Of course, the LAQ heads are OMEGA compatible out of the box, but I definitely recommend demoing skins that aren’t made for them specifically, as they won’t all look right.

Thoughtful & Thankful

Finally, this last pic is really a collage of 3 pics. I strongly encourage you to follow the link to Flickr to see it full size so you can take in all the details.

Thanksgiving Cottage

Hope those of you in the US had a lovely Thanksgiving!

Candy Cane Crush

Just a seasonal quickie today… I was shooting the ad for this new prop pose we released over the weekend at Repose, and I liked how it came out and decided to edit it for blogging. The pose is still 60% off through today, if you want to go snag it! Me and my alt are both wearing a new release from Valentina E. Couture that is just utterly gorgeous. You can find it at The Fantasy Collective’s birthday round!

On a final note, my alt is wearing Magika’s First Light hair, which is part of the Linden Labs 12 Days Of Savings Marketplace event. So you can grab it here at a discounted price for a limited time!

Faded Love

So the folks at Uber have a contest for the October 50 Shades Of Grey inspired edition. I decided this was a perfect opportunity to push my boundaries a little. So I grabbed an alt and took her to Uber for some goodies (frankly, she’s usually dressed as a guy so this was just fun for a change). Here are the results!

It’s kind of rare for me to really love a picture and not nit pick the ways I could’ve made it better. So to get two I loved from one shoot is really unusual, but I did. In this first one, I loved the vulnerability…

Stay

…and this version is going to be my contest entry. I felt it better showed the gorgeous corset I’m wearing from Shai, along with the lovely bed from Sway’s.

Faded Love

This was a lot of fun, and it definitely pushed me. You still have some time to go to Uber to grab the goodies seen here, along with plenty others! Full fashion and decor credits below.

Champagne & Music

I was in a mood to decorate, and I had this lovely living room set from Atelier Visconti for The Garden. I wanted a dramatic coffee table, and DIGS has this tufted coffee table that felt it would go perfectly with the rest of the set. I added DIGS end tables and lamps from Pixel Mode’s Josephine (also at The Garden), and voila! But then I needed a piano, and ofc some books… and assorted decor. After which point, I was fairly tired so I relaxed on my Alouette piano.

Sing me a song

But I was all dressed up, so I decided that maybe I needed to go out for a drink. Except I wasn’t really feeling in the mood for company, so what to do? Ah! A solo glass of champagne in my clock tower bar.

I’m in heaven

Skin Fair 2014 has begun! And anyone who knows me understands that, for me, this is SL heaven. In this post I have two gorgeous skins to show you, and I decided to take advantage of Skin Fair to also show off some lovely Blacklace lingerie!

First up, you may have heard all about SLink’s awesome new mesh head, Visage. There are two versions of Visage available at the moment, and I am showing you Becky. The incredibly awesome thing about this mesh head is that Siddean Munro of SLink has allowed other creators to make appliers for it, just like with her mesh hands and feet. Oh, the other awesome thing is that unlike the mesh heads I’ve tried in the past, you wear your own eyes with this head. Since I am really freakin’ picky about eyes, this was something that simply delighted me.

Glam Affair is among several stores to have released appliers for Visage, and their first release is a version of the brand new Romy skin that is having its debut at Skin Fair! I am wearing the Becky head with the Romy applier in the pictures below.

Daydream Believer

Here’s a closer look! I am using the open mouth facial expression. There are plenty of fun options, and I’ll show you some more in future posts!

Dreamer

Another skin that I fell hard for is the new release from League! Erin is just gorgeous. In fact, I couldn’t decide which makeup I loved most, so I uhm, fatpacked it. I decided to pair Erin with one of Blacklace’s St. Patrick’s Day offerings because it just seemed appropriate.

Irish

And here’s a close up of this gorgeous new face!

Erin Go Bragh

I have plenty more to show you from Skin Fair. You’ll find Glam Affair on Sim 1 and League on Sim 2. For more info, including Sim Maps, please visit the Skin Fair 2014 blog!

PS. Skin Fair is using a script counter. Please be sure to remove any unnecessary scripted items before you tp in. This is done to help reduce lag and make the event more easily navigated by all.
