#544 Change


Farewell

People who read this blog may have noticed my posts have been very sparse the last two months.  I have been going through things in real life and though I have tried to blog I have not been happy with anything I have produced, to the extent that I wouldn't post it.

Last night, after days of wearing this outfit and trying to blog it, I decided that until I sort out real life, I needed to release myself from my blogging commitments, so I have spent today doing that.  This post was initially going to  be a farewell, but after some thought and wise words from friends on plurk, I have instead decided it is not a goodbye, it is a time of change.

So, change it is.  I don't know where this blog will lead me, or when my next blog post will be, but I am hoping to improve my skills and take photos that I can be proud of and want to share.  l love doing portraits so I imagine that will be something I will build on.  From being sad, I am now quite excited, but first I am gong to leave my sl house more and have some adventures.  

Thank you so much to all the designers who have entrusted their work to me to blog.  Your confidence in me has meant more to me than I can say.  The dress I am showing you part of is from Just Because for Fameshed and comes with a glitter and solid one in each colour.  The necklace from my set, also available at Fameshed, comes with one of Cae's great huds giving you not only loads of texture change options but also allows you to hide any of the necklaces so it fits easily into any outfit.

#543 Ophidiophilia


Post #542

Today I am wearing another fabulous creation from Annie Melson of Just Because, and wow, wow, wow.  Annie has created a simply stunning gown that gives you curves a screen siren would be jealous of, and then topped it with a snake slinking it's way round the bodice.  Not just any old snake either, a texture change snake, so you can match, blend or contrast your snake to your gown, or your hair, or eyes, as you wish.  I will wear it next time I go out dancing, and I am sure it will turn many heads - and maybe send any Ophidiophobics running for the nearest exit, whoops.

Bits n Pieces
If an item is for sale at an event, I give the slurl to that event.  However in case this blog post is read after the event has finished, I also include the slurl to the mainstore.  

All Slurls are current at time of posting.  If you are unable to find an item, or need help with anything I have blogged, feel free to send me an email, inworld IM or nc, or a plurk (all links on contacts page).

I wear a mesh body, head, hands & feet in all posts. I use alpha cuts where necessary, and if I can't get an item to work with my mesh body, I will neither wear it nor blog it  Most items I blog fit various mesh bodies and/or feet, and often classic avatar standard sizing and/or fitmesh. Please make sure to demo anything you see here that you are thinking of buying to be sure it works for you.
