The Sun, the bees and my failings

Standard

Today is the day we get another big event, since Bees Through the Seasons is already open, and i always found this event cute and special, well not many insects get their own event, and i doubt few could pull it, so of course i wanted to  something special for it, by the way you can find all my pins for the event here, for an easy shopping guide while you navigate thru the event, or for previous window browsing.

Whenever i think of bees i associate them like most people i would guess with sun and flowers, and that´s indeed what i felt like, like a flower when i saw these Baiastice gorgeous dresses for the event, and this i where my shortcomings come in, I´ve become a terrible blogger lately due to my technical issues with SL and my constant experimentation.

I had some pretty simple ideas on how to blog the dress and what i wanted to show, it´s amazingly well done texturing, and the cute and detailed bees around the raised waistline, but then i´ve ben absorbed lately in play with flowey poses, since i had a shopping spree at her store last weekend, and i also got a bunch of new nails, for my pretty slink hands, from Orc Inc., s instead of doing a proper blog post i ended up with a bunch of different experiments while i tried to show m hands and nails, and failed at it, but as you all practise make us better, and i´m quite fond of these pics, and i´m sure you are all gonna run off to check the event, and will be able to try a demo of this gorgeous dress, as well as all the pretty cute and sunny perfect items available there.

Dancing with myself

Standard

How often does it happen, you´re either at home, on the bus, in your car, basically anywhere, and suddenly, that tune comes on the radio, or the shuffle on your iphone makes it´s notes ring, and for no reason at all except that you have a beat and a melody you can´t just not dance.

You sometimes start just by slowly tapping your foot, growing faster and faster as the beat speeds up and suddenly you´re dancing, and the most fun part of it is, you´re dancing like no one is watching, because even if they where, you don´t care and you would never notice. For as long as that song lasts is just you and the beat, nothing else exists or matters.

I´m pretty sure we all had moments like these, i call it the dancing with myself, and it was my inspiration for this blog post when i tried out this pose set from flowey, and the basic idea for the whole setting, it´s also how most of my blog posts start, so often with a simple contagious beat that speeds ups and grows till it´s a full 5 minute song.

1st pose came with the chair all others are from Flowey - psycho dance

And a simple song, becomes a lot more when i start building up on that tiny inspiration, and concept, you can´t just dance in an empty space, you need a setting a context and meaning, and then the rest of the blog post grows, with me sitting down and picking pieces and little bits that sorta fit in together not only for me but for those reading.

So i bring you today a peaceful, but at the same time busy space , i love doing furniture posts even if they take time and patience and a lot of positioning, i guarantee you  have has much furniture, if not more off frame in this picture, mostly because there is so much amazing quality available n sl these days, it becomes hard to pick from it all.

But i did my picking and as you can see is mostly part and bits from a lost of what´s available at FaMESHed this month and yet i had also to leave a lot of the awesome out, but you can´t possibly blog all the things i keep saying to myself.

Culprit- Edwardia Chair Giraffe, You’ve been Framed set (FaMESHed), Girl on a Pedestal and Antique World

This isn´t probably the best way either to show of the ne Slink Avatar Enhancement, and i am sure you will find a lot more, better posts out there that show you all the options, and the different appliers, including all the nail options from 1001 different stores, but i always do things my way, and i wanted to show the appliers in action and inworld as i normally use them, in my regular casual style, and with movement, free from close ups , with plenty of shadow dancing and look for the first time no seams at all on my feet or hands.

I´m sold and in love with these, and thanks to Siddean Munro for making the appliers available to other creators and also to Izzie’s for putting out matches so fast and all in a super easy to use HUD, i now wait for all the other shops that wil also follow, and all the pretty nail options i´l have soon to play with.

Words are all i have

Standard

Again i say like so many times before that i´m not much of a shoe person, be it RL or SL i simply don´t get most women and quite a few men´s fascination about footwear, i usually go for comfy in RL and barefooted whenever possible, so when new feet come out i usually do check those.

A few days ago Gos decided to divide the shop in a way that would allow better branding and market segmentation, so Gos Boutique was born, not only catering just for women, but releasing over this weekend quite a few new models of shoes, and two bare feet versions in mesh (i´m wearing the flat version here) and a new revolutionary tinting system, well every woman just sighs and sometimes cringes when tinting is mentioned , i know i´ve spent quite a few hours messing with huds to get a reasonable match, i don´t even require a perfect match, just reasonable, and if you´re blogging it becomes tiring with every skin change, and trust me i do a lot of those, means a few more wasted minutes on feet tinting, time i could be using to enjoy SL.

And what´s so different from the these feet you may ask? Well to start the tinting database Gos offers already includes more than half of the grids skin makers, even better you can add online the suggestion for more skin creators to add to the database. My regular Mynerva wasn´t available, but a simple manual match was pretty fast to do, with pretty good results, and to know i won´t have to stress over about the other 80% skins in my inventory, makes these godsend to a blogger.

So i would totally classify these has my best buy so far this year because i also found them cheap, so cheap i have to go back to grab the arched version, and i enjoyed the system so much i even bought a pair of sandals, and am now waiting for more releases that will fit these, specially summer sandals. So be prepared to see them around a lot.

I also dropped by at Maitreya this weekend since they just releases a bunch of new goodies, some seasonal but mostly a new Nightlife collection all worth checking out, this was just one of my favourites in pretty purplish tones, another shop i visited over weekend was Dura not a regular shop for me but i´m loving their short hairs.

And cause i´m slowly learning how to take pics of shoes, i dusted up some Flowey poses i had in my inventory for ages waiting to be used, i sometimes do that keep things about until i find the perfect timming  and mood for them.

As for the title and general mood of today´s blog post it´s pretty much appropriate to how we deal with words and how much effect they have in our lives, something i´ve been thinking a lot about recently.

In the meanwhile enjoy your weekend everyone, happy shoe shopping and don´t forget to check my other blog post over at Hottie Cooterati from earlier here. Just take it easy today cause a new week is coming.

I was framed

Standard

I totally was i swear and i blame it all on COLLABOR88 and Vintage Fair, that made me take these pics, and filled my month with super awesome events, even if i took a week of and then was sick for a few days, i´m still catching up on blogging, slowly getting there, and seeing next months events already about to start, while i try not to panic.

Earlier i blogged some Zodiac over at The Hottie Cooterati Experience, that you can see here: Dusting of Memories, i also did my about. me page thanks to Stranwberry Singh who was passing it about on plurk yesterday, so i haven´t been completely slacking off as you can see.

But now i bring you all a bit mix of Vintage Fair and COLLABOR88 like i mentioned, first my favourite hair this month is certainly this one by Elikatira, so you´ll probably see it again i´m sure, today i just really wanted to wear an hat, and some lace and frills, god only knows what i will wear later.

Let´s see how today goes and if i can have something later for you guys, if i don´t have a great weekend, cause friday finally arrived.

Wet grass

Standard

Tonite I sit on wet grass, wet grass due to Fluid, another The Ego Co. event, the organizer of the widely popular Mesh Around Hunt that ends today. And while we lament the end of this amazing hunt we celebrate the start of a new event, and  a longer lasting one, with Fluid every 2 weeks we have a new round of designers with new exclusive items, all related to posing and props today i picked this lovely table from flowey, and i also wore a few things from other events.

sl is buzzing with events atm a lot of them starting today, first Fluid that you can find here, besides Fluid we had the return of one of my all time favorite events, Fifty Linden Friday, in the meanwhile i also received the first items from My Second Box, which is an awesome new concept, well worth the 300L you pay to join the group.

And last but not least still going on is  CHIC²CHIC Management  second anniversary event, also as you might have  seen my last post Oopskate is later on tonite at 10pm SL time and you can read all about it here.

Is that enough events for you guys? Cause i might have left a few out, I´ll just sit and relax in the grass for now, thank you.
