In the Right Light (NSFW Beyond the Cut)

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.

Ivy

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!

Art in Landscape – Beautiful Sims for You to Explore

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that I post something I call “Sim Sunday” every once in a while.  Sadly, I haven’t been able to post many of these sim exploration posts lately.  This little post should catch me up a bit though!

These first two images are from a sim called Embryo.  I found the sim after stumbling upon the Flickr feed of Joe Balbozar.  He posts great images of SL exploration and then gives you the link for the sim in each image’s credits.  I really appreciate that he’s kind enough to do that!

This second sim is called “Not Everything is Plain Black & White.”  It’s by Fuschia Nightfire and includes some lovely works of art, interesting landscapes, and even a dance floor surrounded by a night sea of swirling constellations!  It would make a great sim to explore with someone you love.

I’ll try to post more exploration posts as time allows.  SL is full of so many beautiful places that we can all share ^^

Portrait of a Broken Heart

"True horrors run deeper than flesh and bone."

This is a cropped version of the original image that is heavily Photoshopped.  The original shows the subject’s nude breast so I censored the image in an effort to not offend anyone viewing this in a feed.  If you’d like to see the original image, either click on the cropped one above or follow the link here.   You can find the original hair at Exile, the skin at Glam Affair, the flowered headpiece and pretty collar at LaGyo, and that big, wide grin at ContraptioN.
