Exposeur at the Pose Fair for 2016

This year’s Pose Fair is underway and one of my purchases was this great Hex Wall prop from Exposeur. The wall is entirely hexagonal tiles and has a slight arc to it. It holds 10 great poses and their mirrors. But you can do so much more with it. Besides using the poses, you can use it as a backdrop, add decor, etc. The uses are limitless.

This prop is special as 100% of its proceeds will be going to help RubyStarlight Writer’s (owner) cat Brookie get her surgery. If you touch the sign you receive a notecard with more information on this for you.

Below are 3 of the poses from the prop and I was playing around with windlight settings. πŸ˜‰

Uptown Funk

!nterlude’s theme this round is “inspired by a song” and SySy Chapman of SYSY’s chose Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk”. She’s designed some pinstriped belted capris, in 5 colours, and 3 fedora hats in 3 colours. A hud comes with the hats to change the band colour. I love the flare at the bottom of the capris and the hat looks supercool.

The poses are from Hopscotch’s pose pack called Pose Me Pretty I & II currently out at Pose Fair. These are awesome poses not only in general but also for shoes. I’m always looking for poses that showcase the feet and these are fantastic.

Life’s a morgue…

Have you been to the Pose Fair yet? Don’t worry, you still have about another week to get over there and pickup some great poses from stores like Juxtapose. They have several pose set exclusives for the fair and I shot the 3 photos below using 1 pose from 3 different sets.

This first pose is from the Broken Grace pose set which includes 5 static poses.

the crash...

Second comes Liquid Courage, another pose set of 5 poses and includes a cocktail.

hurting....

Lastly is the Velour Dream pose pack of 5 poses.

life is a morgue...

In all my photos I’m wearing the pretty Burkhart Dress and Burkhart Boots from Paper Moon. Both the dress and boots come with a hud which gives you 8 colour options.

early morning practice…

In the early morning you can find her on the river practicing with her swords. She is one of the royal guards and likes to keep her skills sharp as there are several assassination attempts per week on the Empress. The sword pose comes from Hopscotch called Dancing Blades I pack which include the swords. (There is also a Dancing Blades II pack.) These poses will be at Pose Fair which is opening in day or two.

morning practice...

Katat0nik Pidgeon designed the sexy Spoopy Nurse outfit for the Supernatural Club at Xiasumi School Festival. The outfit is original mesh with hand-drawn textures. It is fitmesh, comes in several colours with a hud to add the panties, and will work with Slink Physique V2.3 & Maitreya Mesh Body Lara.

The 2 poses in the photo below are from the Hopscotch Pose Me Pretty I pack that will soon be available at the Pose Fair.

katat0nik @ Xiasumi School Festival

Katat0nik is also in the Art Club with a Hungry Bunny Gacha – featuring original mesh bunnies having fun eating paint. These are wearable dolls and you can wear them anywhere! There are 8 commons and NO RARES. Just $35L per play. There are 4 types of bunnies in several colours. They come with a resize script so I rezzed a few and resized them larger and used for decor because they are so cute.

would you like my  yummies?

NatiWilliams of Imeka is providing some of the cutest and most delicious food at the festival. You can munch on Wagashi Nerikiri Pink flower, Dessert Sushi and Sweet Bento. The Sweet Bento is available in 3 colours, and each colour has 1 for decor and 1 to hold. There are some Bento Lunch Boxes too.

Spring is in the air, at least in SL

Where I live it’s still cold and lots of rain; even a bit of snow last week but in SL it’s springtime and Leri Miles has designed a very pretty flowery print mini dress for the Designer Showcase. I love the print on this dress and hope she’ll do a dress without the frill or even a blouse in the same print. The dress is mesh and comes in the standard sizes as well as 6 springy colours.

LMD - Designer Showcase

Leri Miles is also taking part in Pink Fusion Hunt, which starts tomorrow, May 1st and runs to May 31st. There are 50 stores across the grid participating and the hunt item in each store is 5L. Leri’s hunt gift is the Marlene dress in blush (which is not available with the other colours).

If you can dodge a wrench….

Do you know the rest of that saying? Yes, one of my most hated things to do during gym class when I was a kid; dodge ball!! For Pose Fair, NanTra released Dodge This! – a set of 8 poses and their mirrors, along with 5 balls to rezz or hold plus an extra set of transferrable balls so you can play with your friends. Here are a few shots, including what I looked like after being hit first time (last photo). πŸ˜‰

Also at Pose Fair, Back to School pose pack from Kirin. This 5 pose set comes with props. These are great because you don’t need to rezz anything. Just wear it and everything just appears in the right place. Here’s 3 of the poses and their props below.

These boots are made for walking…

Chandni Khondji of Hopscotch has designed some gorgeous boots for the Fantasy Collective. The pirate inspired heel boots, come in 6 colours and are not rigged mesh. I love the richness of the colours set off against a rich gold colour.

Juxtapose has several new pose packs out at the Pose Fair and below are just a few of the new poses from various packs. I like these poses and a few I find kind of sexy looking too.

One of my long-tiime favourite pose stores is Marukin. I’ve always loved how great these poses are for my blogging photographs and not distorting the clothing I wear in them. Marukin has several new pose packs, and this one is called Mademoiselle. Below are 8 poses from this 18 pose pack.

Poses make out SLives better

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.

Imeka sits at pose fair!

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.
