After tomorrow my summer vacation starts and I’m planning on being really lazy and just spending most of the time on my patio sunbathing and reading. I’m also looking forward to hopefully having more time to login and blog more often. I am happy to see some amazing summer releases have already hit the grid and can’t wait to see more. This is the first installment of Maitreya’s summer collection, more will be out soon. For a full detailed view of all the items in all their colors and prints check out Ms. Sasy Scarborough’s post.
Collabor88 has also started up again this past weekend and there are a lot of fabulous finds there. You will find a lot of amazing mesh items there this time as well. The two skins I am wearing in this post are both available at Collabor88 for only L$88. Seraphim blog has done a great job of covering Collabor88 as well.
I didn’t really photoshop the images in my post too much today (except the last one). I mostly just played around with windlight. I did however liquify them, that is something I always do and usually it is the first step I take when processing images. Over the years a lot of people have asked me to do a detailed liquify tutorial. I did talk about it a bit in my photoshop tutorial but I guess y’all wanted something more so the other day I noticed Iris Ophelia posted a great one on New World Notes, which I thought I’d share with y’all. Also, I didn’t realize I had a signature pucker, but thank you Iris for pointing it out. :P
Iris is another fantastic blogger whose posts I never miss over on New World Notes. She does a great job covering not only Second Life fashions, but other virtual worlds as well. She’s also an excellent reviewer because she knows how to give proper constructive criticism. But what I love the most is her Miss Metaverse Manners column, I never miss it! I kinda wish it was required reading for everyone on the grid. So if you have never read her Miss Manners column before, please click this link and check out all the posts, then pass it on to everyone you know, thank you!
