Cobalt

… week 22 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Cobalt

After spending way too much money on last week’s outfit, I knew this had to be a “from inventory only” post. And the remarkable thing is… I actually did that! Yay me!

That I didn’t have to do any shopping, was actually a good thing, because I wasn’t inworld very much this week anyway. I was enjoying the RL sunny weather!

Actually I think I’m going to enjoy a little bit more of that now…

Electric Indigo

… week 3 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II!

Electric Indigo

Usually whenever there is an “electric” color week, it’s time for me to panic. I’m just not a big fan of very bright colors. Electric Indigo however turned out not to be so bad. Not that I had a lot of items to choose from, but I’ve had this outfit ready to go, since part one of the challenge. And since the right kind of purple never came about, I had it easy this week.

Well… the choosing of the outfit was easy. Taking a picture however…

Second Life has been putting black lines on my snapshots for a while (which was already a pain to photoshop), but now it also randomly makes part of my shadows disappear. And that I really can’t convincingly edit. Toning down the resolution and fiddling with the shot helps a bit. But as a whole, taking pictures has become a rather frustrating exercise.

I’ve tried the Firestorm and Exodus viewers, but they give me the same problems. Does anyone have some idea of what I could try next? I’m open to suggestions.

  • Hair – Magika (sabina.gully)
  • Skin – Frick (fricka.morgath)
  • Eyes – Poetic Colors (lano.ling)
  • Neko Ears – OTCR (anisa.naumova)
  • Neko tail – How Vexing! (sei.minuet)
  • Shirt – Ducknipple (beanster.potato)
  • Pants – Deviance (surreal.leshelle)
  • Boots – Shiny Things (fallingwater.cellardoor)
  • Collar – Panda express (kioko.kumaki)

I like Lemon Tea

… and I also like their new Tinsel Tree Dress.

I like Lemon Tea

As soon as I saw a picture of Lemon Tea’s offering for the latest edition of Perfect WARdrobe, I knew I had to have it. Just the right amount of Christmas vibe, without being cliché. The dress is a fully rigged mesh that can’t be modified. So to give more fitting options, you also get a no top/rigged skirt and an unrigged modifiable mesh top. It also comes with alpha layers.

The top half of the fully rigged version did not fit me. Not even a little bit. So I tried the rigged skirt/unrigged top option and that fitted me a lot better. It still showed a bit more boob then I liked however, so I paired it with a black shirt. You know, to keep this blog decent 😉

The Tinsel Tree Dress is available in gold, silver, red and green. All colours come with both silver and gold trim.

  • Hair – Alice Project (alice.demonia)—> mesh item
  • Skin – Tres Blah (julliette.westerburg)

Feeling blue

It’s been a while since I’ve done a post for the Bubblegum Weekends Challenge. I always seem to think of it on sunday evening, which is a bit late.

Bronze

…week 45 of Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge.

Bronze
As it turns out bronze is not just a metal, it’s also a kind of orangey color. With orange being the national color of my home country, you might think I like the color and have a lot of it in my inventory. But you would be wrong. I don’t like orange at all. The reason for that is how some of my fellow countrymen wear this color, for instance at sporting events or the queen’s birthday:

*facepalm* I can’t imagine this is doing our international reputation any favours…
