School has started, and the hot weather has almost imperceptibly started to take a turn downwards. For me that cannot occur soon enough, but it is also a time of wistful longing of all that flexible time in the summer when I can go to the bathroom whenever I want and days where my dog doesn’t look at me reproachfully every morning when I leave for work.
Pose Fair begins April 11th, and it is always a time when I like to break out and do some different types of photos. Today Bastion helped me with Accord from Alyx Aerallo of Grafica. The balance and elegance of this pose demonstrate the aptness of its name. I also need to give Bastion Flare a shout out; I often call on him right at the last minute for photos like this and when I tell him what the photo theme is he always shows up looking exactly right for the photo. And last night was a marathon photo session in which he showed up with not just one but three separate-yet-awesome looks. He knows how to throw down a look, does our Bastion. I am grateful for his friendship and his generosity.
A while I go I did Luna Jubilee’s Love Challenge and talked about my friend Stewart. It would appear I embarrassed him rather badly. But you know, embarrassed in that slightly embarrassed-but-sort-of-sheepish-pleasure sort of way. He has gone through a bit of a transformation, probably because when you have a mad girl running about snapping pictures of you when you aren’t aware of it, and posting them online for the world to see, it behooves him to be a bit more prepared. There are some adorable couples poses available at the Pose Fair and I have seen so many great ones in the blog feeds. The two I chose today are both piggy-back poses. One thing I love about SL is being the kind of wispy little thing that men can throw over their shoulders and haul around with ease. Alas, the last time that was possible I think I was eight. This first one is from Ploom. I like how the pose works perfectly with no body parts sticking through any others.
This next fun pose is from Everglow and it just oozes with cuteness. Stewart was a bit worried that his back would break but fortunately he lived and his back remains unbroken.
This next pose isn’t from Pose Fair, but it did go right along with the carry-Eliza-around theme. This one is from Magnifique, who is at the Pose Fair, but this one might not be there. And don’t let that smile fool you, Stewart was still grousing about his back! I suspect he wanted to dump me unceremoniously into Izzie Button’s perfectly rendered pond.
If you haven’t had the chance to check out Pose Fair, your opportunity is winding down—Pose Fair goes through April 30th.
