Swallowtail


Fly away home

I’m still not going wholeheartedly for Mesh, because of the meetings I go to where a lot of people still can’t see mesh items. However, I couldn’t resist this strapless maxi dress from Amerie, as it flows so gracefully. I tinted my hair to match one of the dominant colours.

Butterflies and flowers

A nice spring feeling with a new floral cami from SMS and new jeans from Sn@tch. The butterfly crown is also new, at the Fantasy Fair: there are 2 animated butterflies, that gently flap their wings. The necklace from Yummy isn’t new, but very pretty, with little gold butterflies on a chain.

Denim
I was really sorry to read that Eolande is moving out of SL. I have been buying and enjoying her jewellery ever since I can remember, and this butterfly necklace (gem change) is one of my favourite pieces. Too many good people have left SL, and this makes a couple of my very favourite jewellery designers (her and Miriel) who aren’t around any more.

On a more upbeat note, I also love this denim dress, so it was my first choice for the 52 weeks of colour “denim” week: I have the maxi dress in a couple of shades of denim, and also a shorter version that I wear over leggings or a skirt. Originally it was sold as part of the “To one lounge” market, but now it’s in the Oyakin mainstore. I’m using a picture I have on my wall as a background: the butterflies come out of an emitter, they aren’t part of the painting 😉

Asparagus
Two suggestive fruit & veg in a row in the 52 weeks of colour challenge! Last week the banana, and this week asparagus. I couldn’t resist buying some full perms asparagus and some full perms poses and putting them together to form this asparagus chair with 2 poses (one in the mushroom and one in the tomato), though I decided to avoid actual suggestive poses… Also my building skills are not that great, and the poses are only priority 3 so I had to turn off my AO to pose. However, if anyone wants a copy of this amateur effort, there is one here for zero Linden (transfer only): http://slurl.com/secondlife/Juicy/178/111/24/. That is my shop on the remodelled Juicy, to be honest I have never made much/any money from my pictures, but Juicy is a cute place to be.
Sculpty veg design by Elizabeth Firehawk (nicely made, the asparagus looks pretty good even stretched to this giant size, I think, I got the set on SL marketplace), poses by Anja Edwardstone. Asparagus fern in pot by Herb Abrahams. Sadly, the male avi in the 2nd pic is one of my alts.

Sepia tones
There is a bit of tinting in this photo in terms of the clothes (wrap and skirt), but I didn’t adjust the colour of anything in Photoshop: the trees really were that colour. I took the picture in the Zigana sim, which is really pretty in the snow. I went for a softer, romantic feel and, altogether, I liked the sepia look more than I thought I would. I don’t much like prim belts, but this one of Eolande’s is beautifully made, and all I had to do with it was move it upwards a bit. The necklace is also a classic, I think, it is certainly not new, but it hasn’t dated. Here is Luna Jubilee’s sepia post

Autumnal
I couldn’t resist wearing this freebie halloween hair that I picked up at the itutu autumn fair, even though its not my colour (it has a little green stalk at the top too). The other current freebie I’m wearing is the jacket from Kloka: it’s free in their shop, as is a cute pumpkin ornament. I love the (relatively new pieces by (luc): this necklace adds a hint of summer to an autumn outfit.

Bad hat
I finally bought the Curious Kitties Nyanotech hair HUDs that allow you to tint any of their latest hair into the colours you want.Once you have the HUDs, the actual hair seems pretty cheap, but in fact the hat+hair I am wearing was free at the CK summer festival (if you haven’t got a HUD, then you have to put up with the colour it is “out of the box” – an auburn colour, if I remember correctly). The Sugarcube dress was also a special, a 50 Linden Friday. I am not sure whether the banded effect at the edge of the skirt was intentional, but I rather like it.
