Perfectly Flawed

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Hi. My grandmother turned 90 today (wow, didn't she just turn 80???). We're heading up north to celebrate for the weekend but this time I'm not going to go anywhere without posting first. Got my PhotoShop working again, too.

Most of the pieces in today's look are older (I'm sure you didn't see this coming...) but I got the shoes last Friday. Yup, it means they were only L$50! The eye bags and the teeth are also a recent purchase. They're by .random.Matter., a store you should definitely visit if you haven't already. You should also take a look at this blog. OMG, I love the editing so much!

Oh, one more thing. My friend Mervi wrote a great post on Second Life (I'm featured, yay me). Please take a moment to check it out right here. Thank you. -B-

Bourbon Street

Hi. Argh, I've been struggling with some PhotoShop CC 2014 issues. It crashes on launch every single time. And yes, I have updated my drivers. I'm hoping I found the solution just now but we'll see.

So, it means that there's next to no editing done to today's picture. I wanted to post the new hair Bourbon by LoQ'ue asap, though. It's a cute loosely braided style with bangs that comes in so many color options I'd probably stress myself out trying to count them (seven HUDs with eight colors in each, you do the math).

I haven't worn my LOGO mesh head for a while but Milla Michinaga (MichaMi Style Blog) makes it look so awesome in her pictures I just had to dig it out for this one. I've also been tempted by the Universal Mesh Head by The Shops but I haven't been able to figure out how to try on applier DEMOs by other creators. Maybe one day... The top is old (i.e. N/A).

Thank you once again for reading. Later. -B-

Hi. I finally made it to Collabor88. It's such an amazing round, even more so than usual. But then again Odyssey is a birthday celebration round so I guess it figures. I'm pretty sure you're well aware of everything that's available at the venue by now but just in case you're not, check out the catalog.

As you can see I fell in love with Lamb's Pandora hair, Tres Blah's Athena dress and Zenith's Greek Leather Heels. OK, so maybe you can't actually see the heels but they're there. The antlers and ears are old, like 2009 and 2011 kinda old so they probably aren't around anymore. Sorry for that.

I'm also sorry for not fully understanding light and shadows. I know they should be added correctly when added but... yeah. I found a beautiful premade background stock and tried something different with it. I hope you like it regardless. Thanks for reading! -B-
