Vice Poses and Virtual Props Contest

Decadence

This is my entry in the Vice Poses/Virtual Props photo contest that closes on 1 January.

The project was a labour of love and persistence. I firstly couldn’t find a suitable location where I could rez pose balls so I killed off some landscaping at home and built a sky platform. I added more props to the sky platform each time I removed trees. I went to Happy Mood and somehow bought more trees and bushes because they’re so freakin’ gorgeous. Something went a bit wrong with the pose when LouLou visited the build and it looked like she was humping my leg like a randy dog (I’m so sorry, LouLou, even though I still can’t stop laughing) so, finally, I coerced a nice man to sit there and be a good boy.

But, seriously, it was fun to set up a picture in a different manner than usual and I am in greater awe of people who build their own sets.

The coerced man is available for posing and modelling assignments — he is very well behaved but it’s best to note he doesn’t have a doodle and his current wardrobe choices are limited.

Queen of somewhere

Queen of somewhere

I’ve been wondering for a while why the Cadenza sim has been closed, but it seems to have re-opened as Happy Mood in Winter. The watery paths under the tree lead to a pretty centre area where I’ll have to take pictures soon.

I was initially aiming for a Queen of Narnia ice princess look, but the bold make-up and hair lent themselves to a more post-modern theme. I can’t wait for the winter-ised sims to be reverted to flowers so I can bring the frock out again for a softer feminine look.

The anti-grinchmas

When good elves go bad

Nothing cheers this high priestess of Grinchmas more than mixing dodgy Christmas fashion metaphors. From left to right are me, Alles Klaar and Anna DeVaux (who made the trio pose with only an hour’s notice — this seriously impresses me).

Grinchmas

Grinchmas

Do you ever just want to lay down on the couch with a favourite furry critter and hide from the world rather than face Christmas? I do.

The corporate Christmas season starts in mid-November because no one wants anyone to miss their functions, so by the first week of December I’m tired and sick of saying no to soggy mini-quiches and craving nothing more than plonking my backside on the lounge with food no more fiddly than a cheese sandwich.

Then the ramp-up to family obligations begins. I am grateful for the family and family friends I have but I feel like a spoiled princess when I don’t feel like going for lunch out of obligation because I’m tired, flat and tired. My thoughts of running away for Christmas and being labelled selfish never come to fruition as my guilt and sense of responsibility overtake my rebellious streak.

And I haven’t even started shopping. I bought one gift online and then received the confirmation message saying it may not ship for 10 days and not arrive in time for bloody Christmas anyway.

Ho. Ho. Ho.

We’ll all be ruin-ed

This is another outfit from Modavia Fashion Week I’ve been planning to photograph for ages. At the rate I’m going, I’ll have enough clothes to last me until next year’s fashion week.

Red is the colour of my heart bleeding 3

Standing on the Outside Looking In

Hello

I’m back from my house sitting gig. The owner of the place I was minding is a smoker with poor eyesight and I couldn’t bear to wipe the layers of ash and grime from her keyboard or mouse. I used my work modem to check e-mails occasionally but, apart from that, it was a good fortnight away from the internet.

I had the best intentions of editing all my raw pictures and writing short stories and making a new wordplay game for mobile phones, but I achieved none of these goals. Maybe next time.
