Sunday Sevensies ~ Always by Design

Original post @ A Cozey Second Life » Events.

Good early morning or late morning wherever you are  and welcome to yet another episode of the Sunday Sevensies.

In my feeble attempt to keep you entertained, I shall begin with a rousing chorus of, “Rock A Bye Baby”, to quell any thoughts of sending me to bed.

Maybe if you all did it in harmony, I’d be convinced to go? Just maybe..

For those of you aspiring to learn and grow in the post processing part of SL Snapography…here’s a tip that may help you with your technique:

Easy on the dodge and burn -.-

Looking back at this image I can see where I sorta burned more that I usually do. Probably due to sandy eyeballs but oh well.

I recently came across a few comments about some images I had worked on for my SL partner which got me thinking, real deep like.

Deep like…lets go jump over that cliff and see if we don’t end up on the other side whole, hmm??

The comments were more or less an observation, I think.

They had observed that the snapshots I took were not genuine and/or heavily ‘photoshopped’, insomuch that they weren’t sure what was what in the picture, or if they were ‘shopped’ in.

The few snapshots I took of my partner’s loft were in fact so clean and clear, I really didn’t ‘have’ to do anything. I ‘wanted’ to do somethings.

I wanted to play in the paint so to speak because it is fun. I’ve posted snapshots here for over a year that were raw and never mentioned it in the writing.

The way I look at processed images taken from in world, is the way I look at processed images in the ‘real’. They are created for a purpose. They are made, by design.

I recall a lecture given by one of our local artists here in Seattle, and one of the questions he asked us was, What is the purpose of art?

Self Expression? Statement? Is there a practical use? Is it for decoration or ornamentation?

To me, the images I snap in world are beautiful in my minds’ eye. I frame what I see, and if I want to see more.. I’ll play in the paint.

We all of us out here in the Second Life Blogosphere, have passions and pursuits a plenty. We occupy our space on the grid, do our thang, shoot our pics, and live our SLives.

But the end of the day,  did you have fun?

I am just me, the crazy hawaiian chick who loves Minecraft. And I love, having fun. Especially with such awesome company!

La Metallique Fair 2 - 2048

Something special is on the way for all who embark on the ‘Must Have Shiny!” train!

L’accessoires has come full circle, celebrating 2 whole, fresh, fun, fabulous and fiercely fashionable years as Second Life’s quintessential Accessory Event. Sure I may be a little biased, okay maybe a lot o.O But truly, really, there hasn’t been a more understated event, than L’accessoires.

Here is a quick teaser video, created by our own L’ace designer’ Lybra Rage, to give you a taste of what’s to come… Enjoy with relish (and mustard maybe), and have a gloriously peaceful Sunday :)

*L’accessoires Official Blog (La Metallique Fair Blog is coming soon! Maybe… like, in 6 hours and stuff Oo)

*La Metallique Fair Flickr Page – You can find some teaser pics already and they’re so shiny!

Striped Sunday

Original post @ Big Boobie Babes.

Hello darlings!
It’s Sunday and I hope you’re all enjoying the weekend. <3
In case you missed it, this cute little top was sent in the BBBF group notices yesterday.
It’s a gift from Vanny of Glace Pearls, that she has never put up for sale 
and instead decided to share with us. Such moments of designer
generosity is one of the things that makes me love SL.
Now remember, notices only stay around for 14 days, so while there is no rush, 
don’t forget to snatch this cutie p with Tango appliers.
The Slink nail appliers I’m wearing are a gift from Somnia, available at the 
My Slink Obsession event. There are eight different shades of this 
Simple French Black mani/pedi set.
