What’s in a Shape?

What's in a Shape?

Last month I released a standard second life shape directly to my marketplace store. The only reason I did that is because people kept asking about my shape and so I thought I would experiment and see what I could come up with. I didn’t expect to, but I sold quite a few of them.

Allesist Klaar was one of the people that bought one. She then contacted me with a photo idea she had. She wanted us both to wear the same Pretty Shape I had released and then take a photo together. I have always admired her photos, so even though my schedule is insane, I made sure to make some time for it. I’m so happy I did because it was a pleasure shooting with her. However, my image is not that great compared to hers, so please do click over to her flickr to see her version of the first image and her thoughts about it. I absolutely loved her lighting and angle. If you’re looking for her style credits, you can find them on her blog.

It’s interesting to see in the images that we both are wearing the same shape, even the same Mesh Project mesh body but our styling and skin tones immediately give away who is who. In fact, I’m not wearing my regular shape in any of the images in this post, but I think I still kind of look like myself, no? So I guess our shapes don’t really define “us” or make us who we are. However, I’m still pretty attached to my regular shape.

Since I did that first shape, a few people contacted me to see if I would be making more. I really wasn’t sure if I would be able to but since I got such a positive response, I thought I’d try again. This time I wanted to go a different route. My first shape was very cute and pretty so I wanted the next one to be a bit more evil/devious and mature looking. So I used my favorite League skin and tried to make the shape look a bit like Sushmita Sen, I love her vixen look! I don’t know if I succeeded, but I had fun trying.

StrawberrySingh - Devious Shape

The devious shape is up on my marketplace store now, but since it has very drastic features, I highly recommend you guys try the DEMO first before purchasing to ensure that you like it with your favorite skins. I have provided two eyebrow bases with the shape just in case you don’t like the high arch.

A big thank you to Alles for asking me to do the pic with her, it was so much fun. Also, thank you to all those that bought my first shape and enjoyed it. I really appreciate all the support! <3

Vogue

This is my third post today. I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but I am inspired so I’m taking advantage of it. People often ask me what inspires me. Recently, I have been very inspired by Vogue Magazine, and especially Vogue India. I know my pictures and styling don’t come anywhere close to the ones […] Continue reading →

Dance with me

Real life friends dragged me dancing this weekend and I had so much fun that I felt like going dancing in Second Life as well. This time I went to the Woods Club because my friend, Blazin Aubret (she works there) has invited me to come a few times in the past, so I thought I’d go […] Continue reading →

Glam Affair

Late last night I messaged Aida Ewing of Glam Affair requesting a couple of makeups for whenever she releases her next skins. I wanted gold and silver eyeshadow with heavy black eyeliner and this morning she dropped them on me. I am so happy, not only did she do it so fast but they were […] Continue reading →

Intellectual Conversations

There was someone I used to have long intellectual conversations with about politics, religion, finance, convenience stores (don’t ask), fashion, food, movies, tv shows, and so much more. That person is no longer in my life and I kind of miss and crave the all-nighters we used to have just talking our ears off. It’s funny […] Continue reading →

Paint the town red

Junbug has released a gorgeous gown for FaMESHed this round so I got all dressed up and felt like painting the town red.

The Walking Dead

I am totally late to the party but several weeks ago I started watching “The Walking Dead” on Netflix and now I’m totally addicted. However, I have a somewhat love/hate relationship with that show. I love the story line and show itself but the gore and zombies are giving me some serious nightmares. I’m only […] Continue reading →

Uber Apocalypse

Uber started up again on August 31st and this month’s theme is apocalypse. If you haven’t been there yet, you should definitely visit for all your apocalyptic needs!

Zaara Kohime has created a vanity set which you would find in a Maharani’s Boudoir for this September’s Arcade Gacha Events. You can see the complete set as […] Continue reading →

Serpent Sex

Ever since the first time I blogged this serpent pose prop last year, at least once a week I get someone googling “serpent sex” and ending up on my blog. Is that really a thing? Or is it some weird sexual position? Do people actually do that? How though? Ok don’t tell me how, I […] Continue reading →

Murder Mystery

A few months back I did a book meme where I talked about books that I love to read. I mentioned a lot of book genres that I’m interested in but one that I failed to mention are murder mysteries. I actually used to be completely addicted to Nancy Drew and Agatha Christie. I have […] Continue reading →

Pastels

I’m trying to get used to my new computer and version of Photoshop. It’s fun but I admit I am struggling a bit since I’m kind of like an old lady that hates change, lol. I’ll slowly get used to it though. Please bear with me as I try new techniques in Photoshop and mess […] Continue reading →
