LOTD 03/26/2017 – Yesterday @ GizzA

Working at GizzA is so much fun, you meet new people everyday and as well you have probably the 2 of the best bosses ever. Giz and Auster are 2 of the most kind people I ever met in Second Life and so work is even more fun especially if the come around to check the store and have time for little chit-chat 😉

GizzA had many new releases lately – as always –  it was hard to pick one for my today’s shift.

Finally my decision fell on the “Karlie Sweater Dress”.

The dress can be worn without any pants or leggings as well, but I am not a fan of bare legs too much, plus the season not yet has me in the mood for that 😉

The sweater dress comes in many different colors and you get for each of them 2 different shades and a HUD for the belt.

For the pants I chose some leggings from Lassitude & Ennui, that just matched the tone of the sweater perfectly.

That look just matched the season mood I am in at the moment, ready for spring to come even if it is freezy outside still later in the afternoons!

Posing with Poseidon

How often we see cool poses and we never get to use them becasue they are extraordinary, editorial and so super awesome expressive that they seem to never fit an outfit.

Especially crouch poses or some kind of unusual movements can be hard if you have a certain outfit, that just doesnot want to cooperate with the poses you would love to use.. I am sure you know what I am talking about :p

So this time, I wanted tight pants, which would not clash with any kind of poses and some cool casual look that would agree with any kind of poses, that I always wanted to use before and rarely had a chance to do so.

My choice fell on one of the amazing applier leggings from Lassidude & Ennui. Her appliers really have an incredible quality and so many details that you barely can see they are ‘just’ appliers and not actual mesh pants. Appliers have the great advantage that nothing clashes or bends weird when your legs move. Another great thing about appliers is, you can mix and match a little bot more by using them together with mesh pieces, as you do not have to take care of several mesh sizes or mesh poking through each other by layering it over each other. The top comes from Moon Elixir with a full amazing outfit called “Rebel”

All the poses of today’s post are coming from Poseidon. An extraordinary pose store I discovered not too long ago. Gryphon Vendetta, owner and creator of Poseidon Poses, never stops to amaze me with his new releases.

The poses are super energetic and natural looking and most of them show incredible movements, like a momentary capture of some animation. You will find poses for any occasion or purpose at Poseidon, no matter if you look for runnings, jumps, dances or even themed poses like the super cool “Hill Nurse” set, that inspired me not too long ago to some creepy pics 😉 (http://wiccamerlin.de/something-evils-lurkinin-the-dark/)

He did some super cool props and as well little sets filled with his amazing poses. To me they are really refreshing and inspire me a lot just by running through them. If you are a friend of different angles, those poses are super awesome for editorial shots as well as he takes care of every limb to be perfect. And even if they look so dramatic you always get a real looking feeling and nothing breaks or looks like broken bones :p

If you love unusual, fresh modern poses and if you like to do editorial or fantasy shots or if you are searching for some new poses in general to make some cool pictures, just take a look at the Poseidon Mainstore (TAXI). I am sure you will find some exciting new poses for new picture ideas 😉

The Runway Perfect Hunt #4 – Part 2 & Amazing News from Finesmith

TRPH #1 Halfa

The Runway Perfect Hunt goes in it’s 4th round :) . Morgane Batista again made it, to get amazing designers to participate in one of the most famous hunts on the grid. Even if the title says “The hunt with models in mind” does not mean this hunt is limited to models only. All the amazing and versatile designs are amazing additions to everybody’s wardrobe, even the males will find some amazing hunt prizes in some locations ;) This year the hunt is not a total freebie hunt, each hunt item costs $5 Linden. With a total of 50 shops you reach a maximum of $250 Linden, what is a great amount for so many amazing quality designs!

The amazing “Vintage Dress Neon” is done by Silken Moon, location #4. The short mesh dress is a firework of colors. While the front is dominated by red, range and yellow the backside features the green and blue color themes.

The stylish hair comes from store #14 –  L+N, a very popular brand for extra ordinary hair and clothing. The wild hair looks like flames in the red/brown color and the awesome flowers at the top and the back make this a total eye catcher.

The cute shoes as well are part of TRPH and you can find them at location #13. Loordes of London contributes the “Burbleary” booties. Black booties with a red sole and green top.

Now I would like to take a closer look at the jewelry, what is not part of the hunt but matched the styling so amazingly 😉 The new “Matbuja” set from Finesmith, is nothing that you can just wear as a ‘side acessory’. The set is something that definately pulls some focus. The huge plates of the necklace are repeated with the earrings and the bracelet is as well part of the set. What I liked a lot was the perfect mix of silver and brown/grey shades that give the whole set a very realistic look. For this post I used the platinum version but if you take a look at the Finesmith Mainstore, wou can find more amazing colors 😉

MyAnimation first

Today I would like to show a few of the static poses of MyAnimation. Ramona Criss, owner and designer of MyAnimations, makes a lot of amazing dances, animations and animated poses, that are used over the whole grind as they are one of the best you can find ever. No matter if you are a model, a dancer, a cluber or someone who just enjoy walking on SecondLife’s streets and ways you cannot pass MyAnimations without at least having one of them as they are so perfect and wonderful done. But did you know that Ramona made static poses too?

MyAnimation second

The poses are all off the “Model Pose Pack 5” of MyAnimation. The smooth transitions and the wonderful ideas for the different poses especially for so many different ground poses really catched my attention.

MyAnimation third

The poses made me try for some non usual styling as well so, I tried to use one of my last LeeZu shift outfits with some new and some old-time favourites of mine 🙂

The “Arabesque Blouse” was the part I started with as I liked the colors on it and it gave me a great base to work with. The “Me Like It” mesh pants I loved a lot and I realized I never was wearing one of the stong colors, so I decided to go for the blue one 😉 As I always like to mix and match as many LeeZu parts as I can for my shifts, to show as much of the great designs I added the “Mia Corset” and the “Lana Top Silk” underneath the jacket. For the accessories, I went with the new “Cosmic Mask” of Finesmith and one of my long time favourite hair from L+N called “Daisy”

If you take a closer look on the mannequins in the background of the first picture… that are some very interesting props. Those mannequins are mesh made and you can actually put your own skin on that sweet ladies. Malicia Python, owner and designer of Silken Moon has them in her store and I asked her, if I could borrow them for a shoot and she put her amazing colored mannequin skins on them for the picture. Thanks again for your help and creativity to make this picture possible Malicia 🙂
