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

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 →

A Second Life on Facebook

Recently Google announced that there are no more restrictions on what name you can use on Google+ therein allowing Second Life residents and others that use pseudonyms online to use the service under any name they please. I was extremely pleased to hear of this decision, but a little disheartened that Facebook doesn’t adapt a […] Continue reading →

Freedom

All that’s left is solitude and the desires in my heart. I won’t be around for most of June because I’m going away to places I’ve never been before. I’ve been a mix bag of emotions so far this year (or perhaps always?) and I wanted a change. So I’m travelling across the ocean to […] Continue reading →

International Women’s Day

Today was International Women’s Day. Every year on March 8th women (and men) celebrate women’s economic, political, and social achievements and encourage respect, appreciation and love towards women worldwide. This day is about empowering and celebrating women. Days like these always make me wonder and I start all these comparisons between myself and women that […] Continue reading →

Winter Romance

When I asked what you guys wanted to see more of in my poll the other day, a number of you responded with Manberry and his butt. I didn’t realize that Manberry was so popular! Therefore, you will be seeing a lot more of him, possibly along with Berry in various cutesy, romantic pictures because […] Continue reading →
