I need you to see who I am

Tunes

Dead inside!
Revere a million prayers
And draw me into your holiness
But there’s nothing there
Light only shines from those who share
Unleash a million drones

Confine me then erase me babe
Do you have no soul?
It’s like it died long ago

Your lips feel warm to the touch
You can bring me back to life
On the outside you’re ablaze and alive
But you’re dead inside!

Engine Room March 2024 – Part I

TUNES

The tunes are really nice this times and I was listening to it while I was finishing my picture for today. It put me in the right vibe for the steampunk theme *giggles*

Finally Engine Room is back and open for this year the first time. I have to admit it is one of my most favorite events ever as I LOOOOVE Steampunk – I bet you can tell!

As always I put in the credits what is new, the event location and as well the location of the Mainstore of each designer, just in case you would like to take a closer look to their designs. Mostly if I like something I do visit the designers  Mainstore to see what else they might have.

Besides the engine room we have the Skin Fair as well and LeLUTKA released their first 4.0 EvoX heads. The one I am showcasing today is the “Billie 4.0”. I am and i will be a LeLUTKA girl till SL decides to close their doors I guess. I tried so many other heads and some were really nice, but none one ever could make me change from my LeLUTKA ones *hides*

For the 4.0 line they again updated so many things and fixed issues that I didn’t even experience for myself *giggles*, for example we have a second lip layer now and can make our lipstick even more unique, as well as static eyes.  The HUD as well got an update and a new look. The materials were improved, and you got extra slots to safe your look on the Style HUD. To see all the updates (which would be really too many to write them all down) you can read the Update Log that comes with your head.

I’am let you speak if you just let me breathe…

TUNES

I’ve tasted blood and it is sweet
I’ve had the rug pulled beneath my feet
I’ve trusted lies and trusted men
Broke down and put myself back together again
Stared in the mirror and punched it to shatters
Collected the pieces and picked out a dagger
I’ve pinched my skin in between my two fingers
And wished I could cut some parts off with some scissors

“Come on, little lady, give us a smile”
No, I ain’t got nothin’ to smile about
I got no one to smile for, I waited a while for
A moment to say I don’t owe you a goddamn thing

I, I keep a record of the wreckage of my life
I gotta recognize the weapon in my mind
They talk shit, but I love it every time
And I realize

I’m no sweet dream, but I’m a hell of a night
That I’m no sweet dream, but I’m a hell of a night

[- Halsey – Nightmare -]

Today I finally was able to try and learn something new I wanted to do for along time. I am playing with lights now for quite a while, but I sometimes missed a little bit of “dramatic” vibes to some more extreme lightning. So I looked into creating rim lights a bit more since yesterday. It is really exciting and as well unbelievable what you can do with Photoshop – I experience that again and again when I do look into something new I want to do, when I am post processing my pictures. I always try not completely changing my pictures as I do want to showcase the real products. So what I mostly do is playing with shadows, light, lightning and shadows most of the time and do some touch ups on edgy that are wonky. I know some use the new AI programs to work their pictures, but for me that is not what I want to have. I am a SL resident and I still want to showcase what SL has to offer – and it is a lot with all the things you have inworld already.

I snapped the original picture with the neon green lights already so I just did enhance the lights and added them on spots where the inworld lights didn’t appear right.

I used some of the new releases I found at The Warehouse Sale and Kinky.

What I would like to mention since you cannot see it on the picture, the mohawk called “No Prison” from no.match you can wear with or without the spikes. For the amazing “Xatyn Ring Band” accessory you have a show/hide menu where you can hide several parts independently for every finger. Certainly both designs come with color huds to customize it to your liking.
