Flight of Fancy into the Darkness

At the moment I am trying to learn new PS tricks and techniques. I discovered my likings for dark background pictures with a very simple set and more extra ordinary poses, so that the focus is more on the person and the items that are being showcased.

When I started to work with black backgrounds, usually they looked kinda flat and I was wondering how you can still have the imagination of a room even if it is all dark. But som subtile lights which are not even really noticeable, will do the trick I read. The shadows on the avatar will as well help with that if you have something throwing shadows on your avatar that you, that you not really see. There are so many more things like reflections and what not, that I still try to learn properly before I am coming up with picture :p

Today it would be The amazing lingerie from Blacklace, the super sexy high heels from Glamistry and the adorable and incredible jewelry from EarthStones, which I would like to showcase.

I had the great pleasure to take a photo of Abraxxa Anatine, designer and owner of EarthStones, for the last issue of the Spotlight magazine. Abraxxa is such a wonderful and lovely person and her creativity has no limits. While we were shooting she was wearing one of her latest releases, the “Flight of Fancy” jewelry set.

When I saw it, I immediately fell in love with it. It was made for the last round of TLC but I am sure it will be in her main store now.

The set contains a pair of earrings, 2 bracelets as well as a short and along necklace. The details on this set are incredible. With the butterflies and the little studs and gems and all the filigree chain links… just amazing. The Set as well is HUD driven so you can customize the colors to your personal likings and your look.

For the shoes, I decided to go with the latest release of Glamistry. The “Lilium” heels are a pair of super sexy pumps. I love the high plateau heel on them and as well the simplicity. With that you can see the wonderful leather texture if the shoes and as well the great details like the seam.

The super cool nail polish was made by ChloeElectra for her brand .alme. I love the golden geometric lines that run over the colored nail 🙂 and with the color they matched amazing to the jewelry and the lingerie!

The lingerie is not just an applier! This time Blacklace came out with a wonderful negligee made of mesh with a sexy transparency.  The panties and the garters are made of mesh as well, only the stockings are mesh body appliers. “Kelsey” you can purchase in many different colors as always with Blacklace designs 🙂

The sofa I used was made by Katink. originally it comes with some poses, but for this post I just used various other poses and adjusted them to the sofa 🙂

Soon it will be the day… NX-Nardcotix will release the new MANA Dezi Flat Sandals!!!

I had the great honor to be one of the BETA testers for the new “MANA Dezi Flat Sandals”, that Nardya Rousselot, designer of Nardcotix created last. I am very happy that I am now allowed to show you this great shoes that are perfect for the summer! As a little special release surprise I was asked to be part of the NARDCOTIX MANA Blogger Challenge (for more information please visit http://nardcotixsl.wordpress.com/)

The first 3 entries with all the questions correct get their pick of a MANA shoe pack.But now lets take a look on the great new shoes 🙂

This incredible sandals come with a lot of  features and a very great HUD that’s very easy to use and also in laggy places it is still to handle! The the menu came up very quickly and still worked and not too slow. The HUD itself is self explaining and good to handle also easy to use.

They are wonderfully made and have so nice details that they look very realistic. The shape of the toes is beautiful… the toes are not too long also not too short ..perfectly 🙂 They are wonderful and I tested it for a few days also I got the extra nail polishes.
The menu is very easy to handle and very good to understand. Also the adding of the new nailpolishes is very easy and good to do.

You have the choice to change the color of the leather straps to black or brown, you just need to click on the strap for the buckle. The studs also change colors between old gold, silver and bronze.  Simply click on the top back stud to get the pop-up menu.

Two separate color packs will be available, one being a suede finish and the second a canvas finish. To change the color in the color packs click the top prim of the bootie to get the pop-up menu.

A nice addition are the above mentioned extra nail polishes that extend the possibilities to match each and every outfit. There is a basic nailpolish set and also different nude shades included but for the special nailpolishes you have to get the extensions packs.

 Nail polish packs give NARDCOTIX MANA’s a unique variety and new twist on SL toe-shoes.

The release will be part of the great,  long-awaited Main store Re-Opening of Nardcotix. On Sunday, June 13th at 1pm SLT it will reopen its doors and you should not miss that:)
