I’m pretty swamped with RL stuff lately but I’ve been itching to create some SL photos. I can’t promise the longest blog entries, but I hope what I do post helps all of you find some fun stuff for your avatars ^^
I’ve been on SL now for 2 years. In that time, I’ve accumulated quite a large wardrobe, especially since my little store has made enough money to afford me the chance to reinvest many lindens back into the SL economy. I purchase quite a bit. When I started this blog, I really wanted to help people find unique items and locations within SL so that they could enjoy the fashion and the scenes just as much as myself. I never expected a blog to be so time consuming and difficult to keep up with, however. It’s even more so because I like to go all out with my image sets because this really is a passion of mine.
I want to share more though. I want to show you all even more things that make our community and world wonderful and unique. I can’t promise I’ll post all the time, but I want to try a little more. Real life work can be consuming but, after all, I’ve been around two years. It would be a shame to give up now. I feel like there’s so much more I want to discover and experience within SL. There are so many artists whose creations I’d like to experience.
Style Oven isn’t going anywhere but the image collections may get a little smaller. Maybe I’ll start posting 1-3 images per post. That way I can maybe share a little bit more. That way I can experience a little bit more ^^
Two of my best friends in SL, Coralizity and Mhyja Questi (the creative powerhouse behind BunnyStar), agreed to participate in a very sexy, themed shoot portraying Renaissance-inspired lovlies! We had a blast and together we experimented with different windlight settings, calling them out over the telephone when we found something we liked. What we experienced together was a fantastic journey though the many moods of Second Life lighting and how those windlight settings can really alter way your images are perceived.
WARNING: BEYOND THE CUT THIS BLOG ENTRY IS NSFW.
YOU WILL SEE SEXUAL THEMES & NUDITY. 18+ ONLY.
(Style card information is also located beyond the cut.)
Real life took over and I had to abandon StyleOven for a while. Luckily, however, I’m back now and I hope to meet new people in SL and create some magic together. Sadly, I missed Halloween, my favorite time of the year to blog, but every day in SL can be a costume day so I suppose there’s nothing really stopping me from enjoying a costume or two ^^
I don’t usually like wearing entire outfits from the same designer but Boudoir did a fabulous job with this gorgeous Poison Ivy full avatar. I added a different hairstyle, my own shape, and some fabulous mesh gloves but overall this is what you get when you purchase. The mesh quality on the corset is excellent and I was really happy with the shading on the latex stockings. They really do have that great shine like when I photograph alternative models in real life. Big compliments to the designer!
The crown was part of the original hair provided by Boudoir. I liked the hair but it glitched out with all of my leaf alphas in the set I designed. The hair is comprised of alpha textures so it isn’t always reliable. It is however ultra creative and I’ll probably be using it with a different look one day in the future. Just keep in mind that if you want to wear the crown without the included hair you’ll need to mod the piece.
Oh! And please make sure to change the URL on your blogs if you’re linked back to me. I had to make the switch to style-oven.com instead : ) (And let me know if you link to me because I would love to link to you too!) Looking forward to posting more and getting to know all of you better!
