Lake effect

My Second Life homestead is almost always a winter home, with snow covered mountains in the distance, surrounded by an icy cold lake. Often, I just sit and meditate, listening to my favorite SL Radio Stream, or nothing at all. I get caught up in the lake, staring at it longingly, thinking about its mystery, and I get lost in its other rippling, mesmerizing effects. I am so drawn to the water; it’s as if I am a part of it, and it’s a part of me. So here I am: a part of it.

If you have love, even plain cold water is sweet. ~ Jung Chang♡

Retro pop Wisti

Recently, when I was bouncing around art and photos on flickr, which I often do, I found myself looking at pulp cover art from the 1960s, and it struck me that it would be fun to try to recreate a cover in SL using clothing and subjects as close to the original as I could find.  So I found a nice example on James Vaughan’s flickr stream that was painted by the great Robert McGinnis, and I attempted to pay tribute.

The experience of doing it was a blast!  While I could have “pushed” the end result further, I decided to go on to the next task at hand, which was actually buying some books off Amazon for illustration techniques using RL materials. 🙂

I enjoyed shopping for the clothing, especially looking around for hair that came close to what I wanted. In this case, I am actually wearing THREE sets of hair! Once I had the props I wanted, I made myself a pose that approximated the woman on the cover (which was fun in itself). Then all that was left to do was setting up a prim backdrop, adding some LUMIPro lighting, taking the snapshot, pulling it into Photoshop to add some “bubbles”, and poof, I was retro-popped.

She was a silky, sexy swinger ~ from the Carter Brown cover♡

Second Life Yearbook Smile Challenge

The wonderful Strawberry Singh added a blog challenge this week, the Second Life Yearbook Smile Challenge. So I went and dusted off my old yearbook, which definitely has seen better times! Our school was too cheap for color photos, lol, so mine is in black and white. Berry had asked in the challenge for us to write a brief note on how we managed to get our avatars to smile. All I did was adjust the mouth slider in “Appearance” mode! 🙂

♡Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart.♡

Hola a todos mis amigos hermosa. Here I am wearing a gown by Junbug, now at the latest collabor88, and being haunted by my own mysteries. I encourage you to go explore your own dreams/visions/nightmares/oddities, and tell me all about them if you want. I’m a good listener.

♡Hidden in the mystery of consciousness, the mind flies alone, far away.♡

Spotlight Avoidance

Hello and Happy New Year beautiful avatars! When it comes to blog posts, I have been laying low lately. What have I been up to, you ask? Why dancing, listening to music and partying with my wonderful SL friends, of course! And also a little bit of shopping. I wouldn’t forget to mention that!

♡Speak softly, and carry a big sticky, gooey cherry popsicle wherever you may go!
