52 weeks of colour, week 30 – ruby

Just a quick one this week as I’m dog tired and winter’s pending arrival makes me want to read books and eat chocolate rather than sit in front of the computer.

I found the perfect dress for Luna’s challenge with a ruby bodice and gloves and set about taking photos. Then a thought entered my mind: have I seen this outfit photographed before? I asked an SL friend as I was working through my memory bank, and within 15 seconds she sent a link to a flickr image of herself wearing the same thing months ago.

At least we weren’t at the same party (or sim) in the same dress.

52 weeks of colour, week 29 – neon carrot

Oh, ring of fire on the wall
Who is the neon carrot-iest of them all?

Me. Thank you very much and goodnight.

We’re past the half-way mark of Luna’s 52 weeks of colour challenge — it’s never too late to join in.

52 weeks of colour, week 28 – pink

I have more pink outfits in my inventory than a Barbie doll has so I had to buy a new outfit with barely any pink in it. Bah, this kind of logic works for me.

I had the hair, the prop, the pose, the windlight and the concept thumping in my mind, but I don’t like this image at all. Every time I tried to rescue it, it started hating on me. Off to the internet, little picture, and on to the next one.

Next week’s colour in Luna’s 52 weeks of colour challenge is neon carrot. All I can think of is those awful garish colours from 2007 that still plague the marketplace listings, but I’ll try to think a bit more creatively.

52 weeks of colour, week 27 – olive

Black olives, green olives, small olives, fat olives stuffed with pimento, any olives in chilli oil — bring them to me and watch them disappear. I hope next week’s 52 weeks of colour challenge choice is cheese and the week after’s is sour dough bread and I’ll be a sated person, indeed.

I found this wild hat first and hunted about town for complementary hair and make-up for a mod steampunk look. But my avatar looked like Kate Hudson in some of the raw images and was too dreamy and cute to dirty down.

52 weeks of colour, week 26 — tangerine

I didn’t have a scrap of tangerine in my inventory, and it was my loss. What an enlivening, smile-inducing colour, and I’m glad Luna included it in her 52 weeks of colour challenge.

So, of course, I made a moody, atmospheric windlight setting to play it all down. My heart is heavy with some personal problems at the moment and I want nothing more than to take a long walk and return when I’m good and ready, which feels a long time from now.

I think I’ll enter this pic in the HelaMiyo flickr contest — details here.
