After dark (funkaay) —-> The Exile hair ~ Collabor88~ comes in 2 styles. Edgier style below.

PunkyCouldnt decide which look I prefer so you are getting both! 🙂

The Daytime snaps were taken at Lelutka Sim…which has been revamped since I was last there.  Looks very smart.   And…I see there are new mesh heads (I have been out of the loop so missed the inital flurry).   I confess I tried them on (and freaked out slightly cos I saw an Auntie in them..*chuckles*) – Each to their own.  Nothing should detract from their wonderfulness…nor the talent behind them. But still… I prefer the old chubby baby face for now.    🙂

Anyway…you will find the fabulous Katra Skin by Glam Affair @ Collobor88, as well as this gorgeous Hair by Exile. Little Beige Top is Tee*fy (Also Collabor88) and the Ribbon is Tres Blah (Collabor88).  The Jumpsuit with Suspenders is by Le Primitif (at The Seasons Story).  Sunnies are made by Miamai (from a selection).  Poses are Marukin. Bracelet is by YS&YS @ The Dressing Room Fusion. Jeans are Pixicat and Romantique Bracelets (top pic) are Cae.  JellyBeans xx

Simple Graphics tip!

Effie

Woo..it has been awhile! Hello everyone.  I logged in yesterday after a long absence and blew the dust off to create a new look.  Truth very kindly sent me this Effie Hair as there was an issue with the script on the Demo.  Very sweet of him.  Despite his success, this chappie remains rather humble and affable.  Thank you Trooof!  <33

Anywaysss….Graphics.  Like many of you, I spend an age getting the right windlight, while attempting to avoid all those unwanted shadows, but trying to find the right amount of shadow to create a 3D effect.  For me it is one of the most challenging part of the whole process of SL photography (we won’t mention poses..that is the second headache! Urgg).  The rest of if it…ie dressing the SL dolly seems quite a breeze in comparison! :D.  So I found an easy option to take a simple photo.

Photo 1. 

This photo was taken with the ultra graphics and rendering on maximum ie In Preferences, Graphics on Ultra + Antialiasing on 16. As you can see..full graphics can produce a rather “flat” photo.  Shadows are great but maybe sometimes you just want a softer look!

Photo 2.

Here, I kept the graphics at a low setting (2nd slot from the left of the graphics slider – Preferences, Graphics, Quality and Speed Performance). I also set the Antialiasing Setting to 16 – find this Under the same Graphics tab in “Hardware Settings).  The effect is much softer.  No shadows but you can really see the luminosity of the skin.  Prettier I think!

The reason I mention this trick is because I think this option is useful if you blog skins where you might prefer images which have not bene corrupted by windlight and shadows.

Hope that helps.  JellyBeans xx

:.:Fabulous Cae Group Gift! <3

Warm Casuals

Hello there!  I logged in yesterday after a little absence and casually checked my Groups…omg*Cae*has the cutest Romantique Jewellery set for all her Groupies. I love it! (See the Group Join Link Below)

So I foraged around in my Inventory and created this mixed look.  The set really is stunning! If you join Cae* Group you are likely to get similarly gorgeous gifts!

Here the vendor pic which models the jewellery in more detail:

Cae Jewellery

Anyway….as I say, the look is a mix of old and new stuff I found in my inventory.  Here is how to get the look:

1. Join the Cae Group ($545 Join Fee. Don’t worry.  It really will be worth it!).  It is a fabulously exclusive Group. <33 Then collect the Romantique Set in the Group Notices.  Remember to check the Group regularly so you don’t miss out!   And of course, tell all your friends!! Shout it out from the roof tops if you must. 😀

2.  Run to Molichino and pick up the FLF item – you have to hurry though! Wear the Top only for now. The maxi skirt is great too…you can wear that another time  🙂

3. Toodle over to Pixicat and pick up the Autumn Jeans Boots Combo.  Forget the demo for now.  Demo-ing is for wimps.  We ALL know Pixicat is awesome!

3. Find I  suitably fitting wig from your Inventory.  I chose this old fave Desire Lines  from Lamb.

4. Smooth on your fave skin…I chose Sia by Glam Affair. Try the ones at Collabor88!

5. My shape is my own but you can trial the one I made yesterday (shameless plug).  Try EMILY by :.:Fudge:.:

6.  Grab the Sapphire Eyes @ Mayfly (Group Gift) Super blue eyes!

Poses are Marukin (old ones)
