well its been a while…

Where should I begin? The last 18 months have been ‘eventful’. Since my last full post (September 2009), in addition to many other big life changes, Sugar Daddy and I got married and we decided to make our full-time home in California. After 13 months of going through the immigration process which included what seemed like a rain forest of paperwork, I got approved for my Green Card on Wednesday … yah! Leaving England has been a major upheaval and without boring you with the detail, its meant that there’s been no time for SL at all, hence no blogging or completion of any of the other projects I had in mind. Now my RL is settled and happy, it seems I have some free-time on my hands again. I’ve been brushing up on some old skills and learning some news ones and that has led me back to my second love, Second Life. I’m not sure what I’ll be doing in my next second life, but whilst I’m making my mind up, I really wanted to post some shots I completed before I left; not least because some of the items featured were so very generously donated by designers who I would like to thank and credit. These shots (which I’ll post gradually over the next couple of weeks) were intended for a magazine which I never had the chance to complete. It’s nice to be back – Dolly xxx.

Fashion Disaster…

Oh dear, oh dear … life’s just about as chaotic as it can be right now. I’m not complaining, I like to keep busy, but I would like more SL playtime. My RL wardrobe is a nightmare and my SL inventory is equally disorderly. I will get around to organising them both (eventually), but in the meantime just about had enough time to put this post together featuring my favourite ‘on trend’ colour pallet of the moment … black and champagne. I reckon you’ll either love or hate this looks. Whether they float your boat, or you think they’re a disaster, I had fun putting this post together. I hope you enjoy the piccies :).

(PS – As so many of you liked the black cat from Film Noir, he’s making another appearance. Unfortunately, the cat isn’t from SL … he’s my Deviant Art pet … I think I will call him Hector.)

Last, but by no means least, I would like to shout out a huge thank you to Chance Greatrex, creator of ..::DARE::.. poses, for assisting me with this post. As well as the range of poses (and clothing items) you can purchase in-store, Chance has just started a commission service (full perm if required) and is already working with some big names in SL. I commissioned these poses from Chance and they’re now available for sale at Chance’s main store in Camorro. He is an absolute delight to work with, adorable, and hugely talented. In RL, Chance has a dance background and his knowledge of human movement is obvious when you see his poses which are, in my opinion, the most innovative in SL. Visit the ..::DARE::.. main store or IM Chance Greatrex in-world for details of his commission service.

One of the first things I do when I unpack and try on an item is see whether I can tint it. Tintable items offer so much versatility and you can create unique, particularly mix ‘n’ match looks using them. For non-prim items, right click your avatar and select Appearance. Then select the item you would like to tint under the Clothes heading. For prim items, right click over the item, select edit and then look for the Textures tab. Remember to make a copy before tinting!
