Sometimes Things are so much more interesting from behind

This is my first taken from behind photo. I know it isn’t a full shot, but over the last few weeks, I have found myself getting more interested in photography and less interested in just posting the requisite three images I have been doing of an outfit. I understand that it is important to content creators to have your whole look featured. I will always list what I am wearing, but I would rather spend time, trying to get one good shot, versus pushing myself to get several images, that might be of lesser quality. Also this way I think I will be able to post more frequently. *crosses fingers

I love this dress…I think it is a dress, or perhaps I am just wearing it as one. The dress is from Pig, and from the front it is awfully cute, white, but could easily be cutsiefied up, or mixed with more edgy assecories. You could toss a leather jacket over it, and pair it with leggings or stockings and ankle poots. Personally I went for an in between look, because I paired it with lace cropped leggings from Fishy Strawberry, and J’s Thigh High boots. I love love love, this particular pair of  J’s boots because they have just that right combination of being sexy and powerful but not in an overhanded way. I wanted the emphasis to be on the dress, which is amazing besides being versatile, I love the handpainted bodice, and the ribbon in the back, the sculpts are a little choppy but I wouldn’t care if it looked like a sculpt out of the Flinstones era.

I love PIG, really I think that the creator has such an interesting perspective, you always feel like she has put a lot of thought and care into her designs, not mass producing looks in 4000 colors. etc.

Sometimes a girl just has to wear white, especially after engaging in a bit of dirty activity.

Now on to the hair…It is from Uncle Web, and I love this hair. First off if you are a girl like me, meaning, you prefer to wear short hair over long hair than you must go to Uncle Web if you have not been, and drag some friensd with you, so that you can have a demo party. I love this particular hair. It has a flexy prim in the front, so it moves, which is a rarity amongts very short hair does. It is such a cute pixie cut, and a manly pixie cut for the boys out there.

The skin…is LAQ Mima. I was a little apprehensive about this skin, like I wanted to love it, but then when I demo’ed it a few weeks ago I just wasn’t in a Mima mood. Sometimes with skin’s I feel like it is all about the mood, perhaps this is why I go through so many of them. I wear a skin for maybe a week or two at most, though wearing darker skin tones, there is a little less selection than for tan or fairer complexions. If I wasn’t a black girl. I would probably go skin insane, and just be nude in every post. At first I thought Mima, was too bubblegum for me, I like pretty, but I prefer interesting. Maybe it is because the first time I tried on Mima I was wearing longer hair, but I tossed on a short wig, and ran to the wall and picked up some blonde eyebrows, and was like I am loving this. I know strong eyebrows are the thing right now, but I am just so excited about having the brow tatoo option, please let me have my fun. Let me also say that LAQ does some slamming hair bases especially around the nape of the neck, I mean look at that picture, I didn’t smooth it doesn’t it look real like baby curls.

The Ears…Aitui, This was another fashion burp. Like I have demo’ed these things randomly for almost a year now, thinking can I pull this off. Why can’t I get my ears to look natural, I look like crap, then I would break down into skin matching hysteria, and it would be a wrap. I purchased the Rozoregalia, earrings the one that  have rings going up up up, and I love them, but they  are a bitch and  half for me to get right and no I am not editing linked parts, do you want me in  a padded room somewhere eating powdered Lithium. So…I broke down and went back to Aitui, low and behold I bought the ears, I prayed, Please God, let me get these too look good. I, brace yourself, read the notecard, and immediately realized where I went wrong. You have to shape your av’s ears to the product not the other way around. So now I am blisfully happy, but know I am going to want more of those freakin sculpted ears. I am such a sculpted body part freak, when they come out with a sculpted butt, I shall be the first one in line. I also recognize that my ears are a bit off in this pic. The details, sometimes when you are focused on a bigger picture you totally miss out on the little things. So,  in the future I will try to be more mindful

Piercing….though you can’t see it is from  this little shop on Rumor. I am totally going back, and I may even schmooze this creator, I love her piercings so, really they are incredible. First off they don’t take hours of editing that in of itself is genius. Secondly they have great detail and shadow but they are simple. I mean I dont really need 45 holes in my face most days now do I. Often times I feel like a lot of piercings are too fussy, with their linked shadows. A week can go by and you can find me still playing with my piercing.

Taped hands…there are several variety of taped hands in this pack some with nail polish, more coverage, less coverage. I don’t know why I think taped hands are so hot, but I do.

Thanks for listening people, what is playing over my itunes

Vive9 Iman

Just a quick little post, because I have been in skin nirvana the last three days. This is from Vive9, and I am sure it is already blown up on the blogs…but now you get to hear my take. This is Vive9 Iman in walnut. I love love love, the model Iman Chanel, and there have been a few skins that have tried to do her justice, I beleive that this one definetly succeeds. Yes it has been processed, but it is freaking fabulous just as it is. You should run to Vive9 and demo demo demo. BTW, they have some cute boots, shorts, and a bag; I swear the longer I spend in a store the more I buy.
Hair: Lamb! (Hairfair)
Skin: Vive9 Iman-walnut

G-R-A-T-I-T-U-D-E

Sometime’s life sucks. Really. No Joke. I think that everyone handles a bowl full of suck completely differently. For myself, I tend to wallow in my bowl of suckiness, do a few back strokes, really enjoy the experience. Actually I am rather manic when life hands me lemons, going back and forth between being overly joyful and upbeat, to locking myself in my head, thinking about things that are really not helpful to me nor anyone else. Sometimes my lack of joie de vivre, spills into Second Life.

I am totally anti-social, in Second Life. I swear to God most of my activities involve being alone. I tried to engage in social activities from time to time in SL,but often I revert to just doing “Suri stuff”. “Suri Stuff” is quite mundane and doesn’t need to be elaborated on. I never feel lonely, sometimes bored, but I would take bored over feeling socially akward any day. Often I wonder why I am not able to don a cape of “normality” and head off into the world. The honest question to that answer is that, I can’t be fucked, and you know what I kinda like hanging out with myself. Did I mention I am an only child.

Lately, I have been less anti-social, it has been happening slowly;emphasis on the slowly. I feel lucky to have met a few people in Second Life, that I now call friends. People whom I look forward to speaking with, who share my interests, and who have made me rethink the whole living in a cave thing. So…you people, here are my notes to you, because you are special to me, and inspire me in so many ways. I also want to say please forgive me for being a spaz sometimes, as well as somewhat incoherent, and indecisive.

*Tracy*
You are like a positive energy black hole, I always feel more purposeful after speaking to you, and that life is Sunny and shit. I also think that you are full of love, and sassiness at times. I just think it is totally awesome how you like to get shit done. I spend days finding a shirt, meanwhile you have taken on the world. Thank you for all the support and understanding. Oh yeah, I am totally going to have my blog assigment done soon…Anorexic Breedable epidemic coming right up!

*Aisling*
Often times, I feel like I am running to catch up with you since my brain is like 90 years old evidently. I admire your honesty, frankness, sense of style, and your opinion. I like to listen when I am around you, because I always learn something, whether I realize it at the time or not. You are confident, intelligent, earnest, and most importantly a good friend. I am often flaky, confused, and insecure, so I am just going to keep rubbin’ up on you and hope your youness rubs off on me. Thank you for always trying to help me with everything, in real life and second life…even when I am totally in helpless mode.

*Phenix*
Lordy, Lordy, Lordy…where do I begin about Phenix, erm I like you very much, and feel like somehow we share the same brain at times, though I think you got the smart half. Our relationship is effortless. You are a busy bee doing this, that, and I don’t know what else, but you always make time to run to my aid, even if I am too stupid to ask…You are my lighting, Goddess. I know you got my back, and will forgive me when I showed up to the fight 15 minutes late, because I was out getting a bazooka.

*Nathaniel*
You are the coolest German I know, well besides Bunny, who we both know is infinetly cooler. There are lot’s of things that I think are special about you, I could go on and on, but let’s make this list short. You are patient, kind, and loyal. Most importantly you listen to my nonsense and pretend that it sounds sensical. You coax me out of my sl cave, with a trail of poses, and other photo props, and I’s luv’s you for it. You take the time, to try to get to know me, when other’s have run away screaming. Plus you are a photographical genius. Is photographical a word? You inspire me, actually the crew you run with, are not only inspirational, but so fucking kick ass. Anywho, I think you are really, really, Goodlooking, just like Zoolander, but I like your brain better. There is always a peanut butter and jelly sandwich waiting in my cave, just don’t rez a pose stand on it.

Thank you all for being my friend!
I love you, even if I wasn’t extremely elegant in this pose, I have issues expressing affection.

Preview

I love that word…preview; I think that “preview” supersedes “new” on the Suri excitement scale. So when I read this post on Iki Ikarus’s blog, I was super stoked. Now, I do love skin’s and getting preview skins, or new skins always sends me running to join a vip group if it is available, and lucky for you and me, Dutch Touch has a VIP Group, 250L to join, and like Tuli Skins, it is way worth it. Say it with me in slow motion. P-R-E-V-I-E-W. So hurry, hurry, hurry this skin may still be out on the floor, and it could be in your size 15 hands, in a matter of moments.

I have always thought that Iki’s skins had a “look”. You know what I mean, some skin’s you instantly know, who the creator is, and other skin’s…I am not sure if it is lack of notoriety from the designer, or their skin being more malleable depending on shape, but some skin’s you see on other av’s and it is kinda a guessfest on who the creator is. Neither in my opinion is bad, sometimes, I like to walk around and feel like no one knows what skin I am wearing, I know, someone know’s but don’t ruin my fantasy or air of mystery. On other day’s I am drawn to a more iconic look; so I don the skins of signature skin artists, like Dutch Touch, LAQ, Glam Affair or Lelutka.

You know though what is the absolute best is when a signature skin designer’s look evolves, and though I am not an expert, I beleive that Iki’s has. Her most recent releases Yri and Jip (yes, I am kicking myself because I had not joined the VIP group when a coffee tone Yri was available for free) have very interesting faces. I am such a face person when it comes to skins. Often I buy skins because I am sold on the face, and rarely look at their bodies…for a few reasons. One, I am too lazy to take off the clothes I have on, because it took me 20 minutes to get dressed. Two, who the hell is going to be looking at my av naked except me. Three, seams…elbows, knees, I don’t even know what to look for there because I never get naked.

So back to Dutch Touch…yes, I major in digression. Her faces, are beautiful but a bit quirky, which I love, and though you can tell they are Dutch Touch, you can also see the personality of the owner of the skin. This is the marriage that I am always looking for when it comes to skins. No, I have yet to purchase Yri and Jip, because I just bought a fatpack this weekend of Glam Affair skins, but I suggest you run over to Dutch Touch and try them. I think that you will be pleasantly surprised, also if you can catch the preview skins, Iki’ is taking suggestions and comments, the info you can find in her blog.

I shot these photo’s in my new Scene-O-Rama, it is insane, and you should totally see it, if you are a photographer or a wannabe like me. IM me in world, if you would like to see it.
