I mean.. really awesome new, friends……
Song of the day, is inspired by HolliPocket!
Lately I have been wanting to work on my photo technique.
So, I have enlisted many volunteers from my, PLURK REQUEST, (list not closed yet! and FYI.. I need some male avies to add to the list! STOP BEING SHY!.. And, yes my plurk is private so you will have to add me ) and I am going to start taking their photos but, FIRST.. I wanted to log on and do some damage control on my inventory, so that on MY side there would be less lag, so I can rez the items I will need for this project.
So, as I was going through my items, I found some cute things..
Some as old as 2007 and some as new as… today, in 2011.. lol..
I am going to play this as a lookbook/show and tell…
I will show you the outfit.. and then tell you where you can find them lol….
Photo Set 1
This is the item I have chosen to review….
A&A Hair,AKA Alli&Ali Designs reminds me of the OLD Damselfly hair…
When you turn side to side, the hair over lapses, and flickers and disappears.
I went through all of the recent releases and THIS was the ONLY hair that I could get to work long enough to take a photo.
Now, please don’t get me wrong… SOME of the hair from A&A is very pretty.. in photos, with … touch ups. However, I honestly, think.. that if they just maybe, re textured the hairs so that they are less… I am not sure.. Transparent?
I think with a bit of work the hairs would take on a new look, and be more widely accepted.
This one in the photo, I love it… it’s just that the flickering was driving myself and my partner completely insane.
Possibly I will post a video another day to show what I mean.
This is another reason, I send MASS kudos to the owners of Damselfly, for uping the game on high ar hair.
Now, please, do NOT take that as an insult… member’s of the obvious H.A.R club are the following, however not limited too…
Analog Dog… Damselfly.. and A&A….
There are many out there but, some can make their hairs work, and make them worth buying.
All that said, alil improvement and A&A will rock the market.

This skin fit perfectly into my mood, and into my post..

On whim I started to search for a beautiful place to take my photos..
Yesterday right before I logged out, I found The Sands Of Time…
It is by far the most beautiful Arabian style sim I have seen to date.
Atm, the build is turned on, which makes it perfect for photographers whom like to use props or couple poses… or for those of you who like to use your own dances.
I would think that the owners don’t mind you putting things down, as long as you pick it all back up. (this is not a quote, just common curtsey).
I will share with you some photos of clothing from, “VERO MODERO” shoes from, Purfect 10 and skin from, The Plastik.
How I am going to do this, is show you the photo and add the item and link below it.
And now for a couple photos of the sim..
I only have two for you for now so, make sure to come by and take a look around.
It is AMAZING.
So you love your skin but, you want a “new look”..
Second life has come so far, and now we have our “tattoo” layers.
I remember Yoko Surya was, defending the fact that she made makeups for your skins..
And now.. WOW..
It is like the “makeup” industry just BLEW UP!.
It is like that old saying..
“if you can’t beat em, join em!”.
Seeing as though Yoko was my very first intro too makeup layers, her store is included in the next photos.
Now these are not ALL I have in my inventory..
Which if you follow me on flickr you are all well aware of my very extensive inventory..
These are just a few of my favorites, as well as some of the Vainer’s, since I asked for help in finding FULL makeups.
As a note, I wish people would make more FULL makeups..
Lipsticks and eyes at least..
Speaking of the eyes..
I will also include some of my favorite eyeballs! lol
