Not long after I complained about lack of snow it snowed. I don't know if the snow is going to stay, but there has been real snowing this time and more is coming down. Somehow it seems brighter already. A little bit. So it's the perfect timing for get my brand new Winter Jacket from insanya on. Now where are all my winter shoes?

In my RL it's too dark now. We don't have snow yet, but the winter darkness is here. And because the days haven't been sunniest it's dark even when the sun is up. Well, not dark, but you know, not quite bright either. But in SL it can be as dark or bright as you decide. Perhaps the darkness of my RL has made my eyes sensitive for the brightness of SL.

Recently I saw a blogger application in which one of the requirements was that the blogger must accessorise. Well, I don't know if my hooves, ears and horns count as accessories, but I really like things simple. Sometimes I do accessorise, but sometimes I just let the dress or shirt or the pants do the heavy lifting. Simple can be and often is very pretty.

Sometimes I revisit old ideas. I can improve them, I can add them a new twist. When I found this absolutely gorgeous lilac mesh dress from Junbug I felt it needed a little edge. I remembered my Mad Max 2 inspired SL traveller outfit and took some elements from it. The hair, the horns, the straps. This royal and fantastical look was build with something new and something old. I went to a beautiful sim called ROCHE (SLurl) to be the princess to my woolly subjects.

Vain

Last week I decided it's time for a new vanity pic. My old one was from 2012 (!!!) and since I redid the site and added a new logo-ish to it I thought it's time to show my current face on various places. I decided to do something simple, something that's me, use some of my favourite clothes and the hair I love and accessorise it a bit. I admit to have Photoshopped the actual vanity pic with a heavy hand. Liquify, blur, some nifty actions I have... And a simple background. If the details aren't so clear here in the smaller size, check the pic on Flickr as the biggest version of it. The actual vanity pic is up there on the top and below is an extra I took today featuring the whole outfit.

Lately I've been wondering why I have lots of problems with my Second Life photography. For some reason the pics I took kept being slightly not as good quality as usual. Getting the pics look good required lots of photoshopping, much more than previously. I blamed my Mac for not having enough power (all of a sudden) and my Internet provider for a bad connection. I though maybe SL is being silly and not working well with the textures and mesh. So you can imagine my embarrassment when I today noticed that for some reason my snapshot preferences had been turned from lossless png to jpeg. No wonder things were working strangely!

When I finally got everything working I put together this sweet pastels outfit. I build the look around Shabby Pastel Dress from [ bubble ]. It has a hud with several different colours and is of course mesh. Other items include old and new, mesh and no mesh. And of course it's very pastellific in general, with a couple of basic black accents.
