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.

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

24 Months Of Collabor88

Collabor88 has been my favorite event ever since it opened. Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of events that I love and adore, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say Collab stole my heart long ago. I don’t think there’s been a single round I haven’t shopped. So when I heard about the blogger search, I agonized over what to do, how to define my entry. I knew I wanted to only feature items from this and past rounds of the event, but that wasn’t enough. Finally, it came to me this past week. I went to the Collabor88 catalog and went back as far as the galleries go, which turns out to be March of 2014. I determined I was going to incorporate at least one item from every single round since.

I went through every single catalog and found items in my inventory from that round to work with, starting with the build by Dust Bunny and working from there. Aside from my mesh body (Maitreya’s Lara) and my mesh head (Catwa’s Annie), everything in the scene below – including my nail appliers and eyes – came from one of the past 24 rounds of Collabor88. I will credit by round below the pics, starting with the most recent round and ending in March 2014. Aside from my earrings, I owned all of these items prior to this month’s Espionage themed round. My earrings are from a round that was in the summer and everything I owned for it was out of place for the scene. Including my poor but adorable bubble blowing crab.
