Poses make out SLives better

April 23, 2014 Leave a comment

Pose makers and animators make our SLives better. If not for them we’d we walking and standing funny and taking photos would be a lot harder. I am very grateful for them and having dabbled a bit in making a few poses, I know how much work goes into the process.

One of my favourite pose stores is fri.day. I still use poses from fri.day today that I bought 2-3 years ago because they are well done and natural looking. Creator Darling Monday has 2 pose packs at the fair called Careless and Monday. I anticipate using these poses a lot in my blogging and photo taking.

Manifeste owner July Raymaker makes really nice poses. This store has become one of my favourites recently because I feel the poses look natural and are smooth; as well, they don’t distort the clothing so are excellent for me to get the best shots when I blog using them. Manifeste has several new poses out and 3 of them are below.

Gods & Goddesses at Theme Park

April 22, 2014 Leave a comment

The current round of Theme Park is in full swing and this round’s theme is Gods & Goddesses.

Coquet’s Athena Dress is very sexy and I can imagine a goddess wearing it. It comes with a hud to change the colours and comes in the standard mesh sizes.

Frogstar’s Valkyrie Wings are a headpiece modeled after Norse mythology. Five colours are available, each 125L and of course there’s a fatpack available for 375L.

Collisions’ tattoo is called Sarashwati. It’s a backpiece with some tattooing on the front and arms. From the tattoo, I think it’s a god from India.

SySy Chapman, of SYSY’s, has been a very busy bunny lately with loads of shoes for us all. She has new shoes in store plus shoes for 2 events, all starting today, the 21st.

The 21 Shoe Event, which started at 12am slt and will run for 24 hours, has 2 pairs of exclusive original mesh shoes for the price of 1 or less. SYSY’s exclusives for the event are Samya shoes in pink for SLink high feet and the Blocky Mary Janes in nude for SLink medium mesh feet. Remember, you only have 24 hours to pick up this deal at SYSY’s main store.

SYSY's - 21 shoe event

Another event beginning today is the Fantasy Collective and SYSY’s has new pirate-looking pumps. I love the shape of these shoes and they’re really cute. They come in black and brown and are made for SLink medium feet.

SYSY’s newest shoe release are the Blocky Mary Janes made for SLink medium feet. These cute mesh shoes come in 8 colours (plus there’s a 9th colour in with the 21 shoe event. I love mary jane shoes and most that I have are low heel so it’s nice to have a higher heel pair.

Imeka sits at pose fair!

April 20, 2014 Leave a comment

Imeka is taking part in this years pose fair with a set of cute stands called Charmy and, I believe, is her first set of sits. The sits are very cute and well done. Today while shooting for the blog it came to me what I’ve wanted to say about Imeka poses. They feel and look natural; they don’t make you look stiff and unnatural in photos.

Dead Dollz Spring/Summer Collection – Part 4

April 19, 2014 Leave a comment

My final post of Dead Dollz’s Spring/Summer collection ends with the beautiful Pretty Ink gown. The gown comes in both pink and black and is comprised of a long billowy skirt with splashes of colour and a top like silk-ribbon like fabric with a large bow in back. I love the top and the gown as a whole. You will be unforgettable wearing this gown.

Pose Fair 2014 opens soon!

April 18, 2014 Leave a comment

The 2014 Pose Fair opens on April 19th at 12 p.m. SL time and ends May 3rd 11:59 SL time. Over 100 stores are participating and is being put on by The Hottie Cooterati Experience.

Pose Fair 2014 opens soon

When I tp’d in yesterday I was delighted with the build. It is a space theme and is amazing. All the neon reminds me a bit of tron; I even saw a Dr. Who booth and of course the enterprise. ;) It is very easy to naviagate through the event; start either at the top or bottom and follow the booths. Each section is a different neon colour so it’s easy to keep track of where you have been. Important: Since this is space the event is dark so change your windlight to region default to see it at it’s best. I had no trouble seeing everything and following along once I did this.

There is 2 landing points (sky and ground) and the landmarks will come on the 19th when the event opens.

RubyStarlight Writer and the others at the Hottie Cooterati Experience have put in a lot of hard work getting the pose fair together and all the store owners in getting ready. I for one can’t wait until it opens; it’ll be great. :)

I snapped a few photos while there.
