52 weeks of colour – week 21, white

I usually assemble an outfit for Luna Jubilee’s 52 weeks of colour challenge first and then look for a venue. However, I landed at Bun Bun Central and just had to use the rabbits as props for the white challenge and hunt down some clothes later.

I hope the rabbits accepted my avatar as one of their own.

More music

I took this shot at Cadenza back in January and hadn’t got around to tidying the rough edges and adding a few sparkly things. Done. I’ve started the new job and am having trouble staying awake past 7pm, so this post will lack my usual sparkling commentary.

52 weeks of colour challenge, week 20 – sky blue

After trying several dozen skins in the search for a new and cuter look, I found exactly what I was looking for. And the sky blue challenge yielded a pretty dress and hair as a modern-day nod to cocktail party fashion of the 1930s.

I have enjoyed the subtleties of the neutrals in Luna’s 52 weeks of colour challenge, but it’s refreshing to play with one of my favourite colours. Looking up at a clear early autumn sky (or early spring sky if you’re above the equator) is one of life’s enduring pleasures.

Taming the inventory

I don’t know what prompted this surge of virtual housekeeping — oh yes, I do, it was the dozens of demo skins from the Skin Fair littering my inventory — but I feel like sharing how I keep myself organised.

When I’m looking around in-world or checking the blog feeds, I jot a quick line in a Word document of things I see and like. Some weeks the screen is almost empty, but last week filled almost a page.

Below is about as organised as I get when it comes to sorting new demos and purchases. I prefix everything new with a ‘z’ so items sit quietly at the bottom of my inventory until I feel like trying things on. (I created a ‘to be sorted’ folder but I never get around to opening it, so having everything staring me in the face seems to offend my sense of neatness and prompt action.)

The bottom of this image demonstrates that someone went a little nuts at the Frick shop. I’d run there soon as the skins and outfits are dirt-cheap and I believe the brand will be disappearing at the end of March.

How do you keep track of your ‘to do’ list and stay organised?

52 weeks of colour challenge, week 19 – umber

I had to give the brown colour table a study again for Luna’s challenge because the neutral shades are starting to turn to fuzz in my mind. I found plenty of raw and burnt umber clothing that didn’t suit the picture I wanted to take, so I selected items in different shades with the hope one of them was correct. If nothing’s correct, blame, er, my video card settings. A craftswoman retains the right to blame her tools occasionally, I say.

Jasmine Scissorshoes

I happened upon the Veparella site quite by accident and don’t know what to say except I recommend you teleport there quickly for an abundance of Suess-ian/Willy Wonk-ian delights.

I wore my own outfit, but the creators have provided a pack of clothing and props at the entry point, together with plenty of buttons to press and levels to frolic on. Excuse me while I return to go and bounce on an apple and seal myself in a bottle again.

52 weeks of colour challenge, week 18 – ecru

Off-white, brown, beige, ecru, ivory, mint(!), natural, ghost, white and grey are some of the clothing colours I saw labelled that looked decidedly ecru to me. Who knows any more?

I re-gained my smile when I found lots of ecru clobber in-world, however, my overbaked windlight setting darkened everything a few shades. But I love the hat and the ethereal quality of the scene at the Gulf of Loon.

I must admit I’m getting terribly excited at the thought of the snowy, nature-oriented sims changing landscapes for the northern hemisphere spring. Off I go to check some old landmarks to shoot next week’s umber outfit (not assembled yet, but let’s not worry about that minor detail) in Luna’s 52 weeks of colour challenge.

Gone gaga

I was looking for a vaudeville/goth/broken princess outfit but somehow arrived at this Lady Gaga/doughnut-head look instead. It was great fun to put together.

The image in my  head was created for the occasional insomniacs who aren’t visited by Mr Sandman to bring them dreams. Instead, my avatar can roam cities and spread sparkle dust throughout the night.

52 weeks of colour challenge, week 17 – electric lime

I’ve had this artfully disturbing piece of graffiti at The Looking Glass bookmarked for months, just waiting for the right outfit to pair with it.

And I realised I had these artfully disturbing pants in my marketplace favourites list, just waiting for the right location to pair with them.

It was a match made in staring eyeball heaven.

It’s never too late to join Luna’s 52 weeks of colour challenge, but just remember to wear your sunglasses for this week’s electric lime.
