52 Weeks - Patina

Another one of those that I only had one item that closely resembled the colors. I love going through my inventory though to see what I have. The skirt was key. Ingenue had these skirts at Collabor88 a while back and the shape was something I liked. Now I'm glad I got it!

Patina is something I always thought happened to different metals from time, air and molecules. I never thought it could be a color, but anything can be a color if you really want to see it.

I'm not sure what to call to call this look. It's another one that kinda screams spring but not quite yet. Sweaters and slouchy knit boots bring out the old winter.

52 Weeks - Electric Indigo

This was one color that I completely went bonkers over. Electric Indigo is in the spectrum somewhere between Indigo and Violet. As close as possible was going to have to be good enough for me. This is when I remembered a recent Twisted Hunt item I found and already had taken a picture for.

I seriously fell in love with this creature from Kinzart Kreetures. So many prim pieces and seriously so lovely. It's not Electric Indigo but it seems to glow as if it aspires to be so. So I'm choosing it.

52 Weeks - Coral

I'm way behind but tonight I was taking pictures and I felt that urge to do a challenge. The post before this talks about the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge started by Luna Jubilee and is now into it's second year. This picture is only for week 2 but I'm hoping to keep going.

I only had ONE coral item in my inventory. Thanks to Rezzie, I was able to do this week without going anywhere but in my own inventory. Everything in the picture except for the skin and the eyes are items I've had for a long time. The skin was at one of the Dressing Rooms for a low price and looked really nice on my av shape. The eyes are new from IKON and I really wanted to try them out. You get 5 sizes of eyes for 150L.

Its funny that I did this picture now because it has a end of winter feeling to it. Spring is upon the Northern Hemisphere and for just a little longer a cute beanie is needed.

52 weeks - Champagne

I never ended up finishing Luna Jubilee's 52 Weeks challenge from last year.  Already I'm behind a few weeks but I'll try to make as many weeks as possible this time. Champagne which I interpreted for New Years is the first color.

My friend let me borrow his new laptop and I'm enjoying 3.0 on it. Not only that but I'm finally able to see Mesh items. I've tried shadows but it seems like I'm not fated for those.

Hair : Elikatira Rush ~ color 08
Skin: Pink Fuel ~ Ember 
Eyes: Plastik ~ Aleria Collection: Seelie; Daffodil
Ears: Illusions ~ Mystic ear: elfin
Dress: Whippet & Buck ~ Lismore Drop-Waisted Maxi Neutral
Boots: lassitude & ennui ~Selene MESH boots in melon size 2

Remember to view MESH you'll need a newer viewer. I'm on 3.0.

If you'd like to do the same, you can either post the pictures to their group flickr OR make your own blog to showcase your pictures. 
Here is the first post on Luna's website that gives you all the directions on how to follow along :

52 Weeks of Color - Sky Blue and White

I am hooooooooribly behind on my 52 Weeks challenge. They're already talking about doing a 53rd week of rainbow colors. I think I'm going to have to buckle down and do a quick snapshot of each color. But I do have the next 2 in line as regular pictures. I remember this one took days to figure out what to do. First I did a fantasy picture, then something completely silly before I found this little trailer park. Unfortunately, I no longer have the SLurl for this location but just know it was a great trailer park. The entire look actually started with the jeans.

Waiting for someone perhaps? Did her lover who promised to take her away from this place forget the date and time of said "saving"? Or could it be that she lost something valuable to the dogs behind her..and now has to wait 24 hours to get it back. LOL, who knows but I really did enjoy taking this picture.

This one is not as expressive as the last one. This one took longer because its so easy to go overboard with white. Trust me, this was the last in a dozen outfits I had picked out. This image was more about the fireflies that kept fluttering around in the picture. I took it because of them. Again I don't know where I was but it was very beautiful.

My first Blogger Review - Visions by A:S:S

  click for a larger image
I'm by no means a fashion blogger. I'm merely a tiny little fish in a huge sea of bloggers. So when

Since I am absolutely obsessed with making eyes, I figured I'd might as well do it properly.

Soooo... I therefor proudly presents....
Vision - Eyes by A:S:S!

All of my eyes, new and old, neatly presented in it's own little shop.
 There is also apparently a Gatcha with 10L eyes or a 3L a prim one for mismatching.

Top to bottom of above picture:
  • Darkness in your eyes (Cinnamon) 
  • Eclipse (Atlantic)
  • Moonlight (Plum)
  • Resurrection (teal)
  • Soultrap (Blizzard)
  • Vampric Eyes (Blood)

If you're in the mood for a new pair of eyes, I strongly suggest checking Visions by A:S:S out because I was delightfully surprised by how nice they looked.

  • Pairs of eyes are 50L
  • Fat packs of  all the colors in a set are 400L
  • Most come with separate prim eyes as well, check the vendor to be sure.

52 Weeks of Color - Red, Teal, Electric Lime, Ecru, and Umber

You better believe your bottoms that I'm catching up and doing it fast. Want to know why? Because I'm moving in about a weeks time and I won't have the internet for awhile. Rather then get behind, I want to quickly pick up where I left off and ZOOM til I get caught up.

This one was a tough one mainly because red could be so easily overdone. Glam Affair added a skin to The Dressing Room Blue with the most gorgeous, red matte lips I'd ever seen. The eyes are Asian but they don't look right on my shape so remembering I had a blindfold from Illusions they were softened. Strangely it started a bondage look that you see above. I really like the photo.

Teal isn't a big choice in my inventory. I like blue and I like green but together it's off for me. Luckily though, I still had some clothes from the now closed [AV] store. Poses that work with skirts are always a problem, but this time it was no problem at all with a Glitterati pose. The outfit itself looks dated so adding knitted stockings from Jane, sneakers from HOC and the Want hairstyle from [e] gave it a 50's/60's look.

This was one I've been wanting to do. I have these older panties from RAWR in colors that remind me of the 90's. The only problem I had was where to wear them. Luna using Electric Lime gave me that chance! SLink's boots were a perfect match for the bold color of the Lime panties and since she sorta, kinda looks like a lady of the night..a kiss to the shoulder from her last lover?

This one was super hard. Ecru is an interesting color and I took it as the unwashed linen side of it. I think I nailed it but who knows right? Now I did use this hair for another of the 52 weeks but this was the best one for this. I have the black and white pack of it and being that my hair is always blue, changed a streak to it. This is another shot where, if you noticed, my nails are colored. All of them come from RezIpsa Loc who I aaaaaadore.

Lastly was Umber, which after digging through my Pixel Dolls folder, I was able to find the right outfit. Feeling sexy and elegant in one outfit is hard to pull off but the right amount of skin shown and the largest amount not makes this up. It also felt like an older piece to me so I paired it with a pair of boots I snagged on a hunt from [soap] a long time ago. To make it slightly modern, I tacked on some hair with a beanie like hat on just for fun.
