Sometimes you are in a mood you can’t describe… it is a feeling you will not find any words for – neither good or bad.
One of those days it was when I was just wandering around in one of our latest releases for Wicca’s Wardrobe. It is those days when you do not feel inspired at all and everything you start seems to not work for what ever reason. Luckily I do not have such days too often :p . But when it happens, the best usually is to wander around, try some locations of the SL destination guide or go through my old landmarks and see if they are still there or if I can find some source of inspiration by just roaming around.
Some when my way brought me to Ironwood Hills, one of my favourite sims actually 🙂 . The creators of the sim change it frequently to a new design and look but always in a dark post apocalyptic theme with a horror touch, which I like a lot my self. This time I found a new layout again when I landed and I was very curious what I would find this time.
I landed in a warehouse with all kind of mannequins.. the dark version of those ;). then you make your way our through an abandoned looking town part before you enter a dark carnival fair it seems. You way leads you through a huge clown head… more specific, you have to walk over its tongue through its head. At the place after, you will find all kind of different things and I do not wanna tell too much as you really should see this place by your own and discover all the amazing and as well terrifying things there 😉 What caught my eye though was a huge Ferris Wheel, which reminded me about a thriller movie. There was one similar at Pripyat near Chernobyl, what made the whole trip over the sim even more exciting 😉 At the back side of the sim I found an abandoned Asylum with… no just see for yourself 😉
When I started my trip I was wearing the “Nimue” set, that we made for the still running round for We <3 RP. it was styled in a more medieval way as I was fooling around for vendor pics ni that look and I just had put it back on. But the more I was wandering over the sim the more I wanted to do some pics and so I had to change the attitude of the outfit a little bit to match the scenery. I added the “Nacha Set”. The “Nascha Set” is our actual item for The Secret Affair. I changed the color of the outfit – the leather parts to black and some of the cloth parts to red – and matched the accessories to it. For the shoes I just put the black version of the “Gypsy Boots” instead of the brown 😉
Now I just needed some hair and makeup, which did fit more towards a post apocalyptic themed surrounding. The choice fell on the “Neva” hair, that I got as a special present longer ago and the “Fighter Eyeshadow”from Corvus paired with a red eyeshadow from L.Fauna. For the poses I just went through all kind of modeling poses, but for this special case it just felt wrong to pose as a model and so I started to look through my photo poses and found all kind of different ones, which just had a little bit more “movement” in them even if they were static ;).
Overall I had so much fun and actually found some inspiration to enjoy this trip and all the pictures. The more I tried the more pictures came out and I really had a hard time to choose the few for today. Again some loosely journey around did it to find something to work with without any special intention 😉
I really can just recommend pressure free time and looking around when you feel like I described it in the beginning. For me it always is the solution to not be depressed, that I again wasted a day without being productive in any kind 😉
