Long Live the Queen!

Strawberry Singh

Whenever I put on any kind of crown in Second Life, I admit to feeling a bit like royalty. Who wouldn’t though with this crown? It’s just magnificent! Below is a full shot of the crown because even though I love the closeup shot of my face, I really did want to show you the full detail of the crown. The crown is from Enfant Terrible from her Magic Ride Gacha at this month’s Arcade and it will absolutely make you feel like a queen!

Each piece of the set is so very detailed, I adore it. I am wearing the rare gold crown and gold necklace in the first two pictures and also the gold chain (instead of the crown) in the third picture. The set also has a dress, more accessories and the most fun thing, a magic carpet! Probably one of my most favorite sets this round of Arcade.

I’ve shared the raw shot of the first image and I was asked on flickr to share a tutorial on how I got from the raw to the finished shot. It was hours of work and I honestly don’t recall all of the steps, but if I am able to go back and remember it all, I’ll try and do a tutorial. I noticed I haven’t done a tutorial in a while, would you guys like more photoshopping tutorials? I just don’t feel like I am qualified enough to really do an indepth Photoshop tutorial, I just press all the shiny buttons. Are there any other kinds of tutorials you would like to see from me?

The skin I’m wearing is the latest from Glam Affair and will be available at Skin Fair from March 13th till the 29th. The last image was taken by Aida Ewing herself. I was so excited to be able to model for the vendor this time because I absolutely love all of her images. Definitely check out her whole flickr stream if you haven’t already.

Ever since Aida posted that image yesterday I’ve had a number of people contact me asking me where I got my shape from. My shape was custom made for me back in 2009 by Catero Revolution. Catero is no longer in Second Life and my shape is not for sale. Just thought I would add that here since so many of you were wondering. I do have two shapes that I’ve made myself in my marketplace store if you’d like to give them a try.

A few people also wanted to know which eyes I’m wearing in Aida’s picture. I’m wearing the Ikon Charm eyes in the hazel color. In the first three images though, I am wearing it in the Moor color. Definitely my favorite eyes on the grid these days!

Today is Friday the 13th and I haven’t done a Friday Find for a few weeks now. I just haven’t been feeling up to it and admit to being super stressed. I’m going to go away for a few days this weekend and get a much needed break. Hopefully I’ll return fully charged and be able to do a Friday Find next week. Here’s a bit of a weekly roundup though:
