Today I again have a special series of pictures again.
In the past I was not really thinking a lot when I made my pictures for my blog, I just had a certain feeling and tried to follow that. I go with my buts and kinda try to put them on a visual level.
Lately, I felt more and more requirements to my self when it comes to my pictures. It is like I would see it from a different point of view now. When John told me, my pictures would be art… I totally was surprised as I never saw it that way.
When the current round of the Windlight Gallery opened, I again was allowed to meet Bryn Oh, kinda THE idol of my Second Life when it comes to art. She was so nice and kind and had a few very nice words about my pics and as well gave me some advice. That so made my day, I cannot even tell. Do you know that feeling if you admire someone and then exactly those person tells you your work is not bad and as well gives you some advice and tricks? – Priceless!!!
I always loved the ides to kinda blend the model into the background. If the subject of a picture is more part of the whole picture, than standing alone in the front. Certainly, there is purposes for that as well like for pure fashion blogging.
When I put on the “Dryad” outfit from !gO!, I immediately saw a forrest/wood fantasy picture in my mind. This dress is nature and art by itself and so I just tried to go on with some pieces to enhance the look.
The hair is the wonderful “Genesis” hair from EMO-tions and the “Laerlorn” headpiece was made by Wicca’s Wardrobe.
When I styled the look I all of a sudden remembered, that way in the past a designer made a wooden skin overly for an outfit of the Claim the Fame contest. The tattoo was made by Vengeful Threads.
