Mouni

Mouni Poses has a couple of very sweet releases at Pose Fair and in order to showcase them I called on my friend Stewart to help me today. In the northern hemisphere springtime is slowly starting to arrive (although there IS a big snowstorm heading into my specific area tonight—in New England it’s all about the baby steps) and it is wonderful to see a little color in the landscape again.

Going Forth

Look not mournfully into the Past. It comes not back again. Wisely improve the Present. It is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy Future, without fear.

Relaxing Moment

It’s been a lovely weekend of giving thanks for friends and family and for having enough when there are so many in the world who do not. Now to look forward and remember to be grateful along the way, and not take the good things in life for granted. Thanks as always, to my dear friend Stewart for being willing to put up with the ups and downs of SL fashion to help me with my photos.

Of Snow and Smooching

The northeast of the US has gotten a whole lot of snow in the last week. This is a good thing, since up until now we’ve had pretty much nothing. But it does make for some not-so-fun time shoveling. Another funny snow phenomenon is the  bundling and de-bundling of children as they come in and out of the house, leaving piles of coats and boots and mittens and what-have-you all over the place. Snow is beautiful though, there is no denying it, and if you get the right kind you can throw snowballs at everyone including the photographer.

Luna Jubilee of !bang poses makes some of the sweetest, most romantic couple’s poses on the grid. That may be because she is such a sweet and romantic person herself, but I always find myself checking out her store to see what adorable mushiness she has come up with lately. One of her latest poses is Acting Coy, and it gave Stewart and me a fun and snuggly moment, making us  both smile. Keep it up, Miss Luna!

Stewart is wearing a great sweater today by bleak . from last month’s Mens’ Dept.  There is only one thing keeping this design from being flawless and that is that the front and back patterns do not line up exactly, so you can see I photoshopped the back side of the sweater a bit. However, the design is so so so gorgeous that I

insisted Stewart wear it for this shoot. I look forward to more work from this designer.

Sweet Caroline

One of the sweetest people I have met in SL is Caroline. I’ve known her since my earliest days in SL and have wanted to do a shoot with her for some time. Now, not everyone wants to have their picture taken—I know because I’ve asked! However, Caroline readily agreed and turned out to be a natural, so you’ll probably see more of her! One thing I admire about this talented lady is her ability to rock the blonde look. Being a resigned brunette myself, no one appreciates this more than I do. And when I saw this cute pink winter outfit from Cameron Vasiliov, I knew it would be a perfect fit:

We had some fun trying to catch snowflakes courtesy of a new pose set from Juxtapose.

One other relatively recent release is a new tattoo layer set from Izzie Button, who most graciously allowed us to temp-rez at her store so we could do the photo shoot. My cold-flushed cheeks are due to her amazing ability to create facial color variations. Thanks, Izzie!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Moss Green

This is one of my favorite colors in the world. So when I typed in “moss” in my inventory I was shocked to find only a couple of items. What I did have was some lovely mossy rocks. Now there’s nothing like a hike over the craggy peaks!

At a girl’s youth camp this summer I was teaching the kids about orienteering and doing compass courses, etc. The girls could not believe that I could figure out where we needed to go by looking at the sun, at my little spinning dial and at moss on trees. Where I live moss grows primarily on the north side of trees and rocks, since it gets the most shade. They were astounded—but completely excited when they figured out how to do it, too. Fun times.
