Left in the Dark

I do want to apologize for the darkness of the images today. I know as a blogger I shouldn’t be doing such dark images but instead they should be more bright and clear so they show the items well, but I don’t do it often! I just thought it would be fun to try something a bit different this time.

My main focus was the hair, I’m kind of in love with it. However, I am a bit late in blogging it. It’s a release from Boon which was at Hairology for the month of January but now the event is over. I am hoping it is now in the Boon mainstore. It is all mesh and unrigged so you should be able to wear it with any mesh head and even the default SL head. I am wearing the Catwa Annie head today.

The other item that I loved is the necklace which is a statement piece from Maxi Gossamer. It will be released at FaMESHed starting February 1st. I forgot to wear it in the first image so you don’t see the back of it in my images here. However, here is a link to another bright and clear image I did which shows the back of the necklace in the color black. The necklace also has silver and gold metal options. Keep an eye on Maxi Gossamer’s blog for more details about it soon.

The gown I’m wearing is a sexy little number from Miss Chelsea. It was released back in November at an event, but now it can be found at the Miss Chelsea mainstore as well as the marketplace.

The second image in this post is a raw shot straight from Second Life, the only thing I did was crop and resize it. Also, if you look at the linked raw shot of the first image, you will see that I barely did anything to it, just cleaned it up a bit. I love the fact that now with windlight, mesh bodies, mesh heads, mesh hair, mesh clothing, mesh jewelry and more, our Second Life avatars and images can be so close to perfection without much effort. I have to admit, I am really enjoying everything the grid has to offer these days. A big thank you to all of the creative talent that provides me with hours of entertainment and enjoyment! <3

Siddean Munro shared a teaser pic of something she’s about to release soon, certainly had me intrigued. There is a lot of speculation of what it might be. Some people are saying it’s a mesh head that will have an option for appliers (wouldn’t that be nice?) or mesh boobs/body, etc… Looking at the pic, […] Continue reading →
