52 weeks of colour part deux – week 13, tea green

Autumn (with a twist of bunnie)

Just another quick one for this week’s 52 weeks of colour challenge as I’m working on some RL career stuff and preparing for the Fashioncentric Hi 5 hunt, however, a pretty dress and the new Happy Mood make taking pictures so smooth and enjoyable.

Synchronicity

Synchronicity

I bought several outfits from Miamai’s collection last November (this has been sitting in my ‘to post’ list for no reason) but I think this is my favourite. The subtle colours and softness stood out from the usual bold shades and tailoring and every picture I’ve seen on Flickr has been dreamy and flowed beautifully.

52 weeks of colour part deux – week 12, St Patrick’s blue

Sheena is …

I’m over-committed in RL and I didn’t have time to properly research the origin of St Patrick’s blue for this week’s 52 weeks of colour challenge. I didn’t have much time to take a picture so I thought I’d create a portrait, which took me much longer by the end as I don’t normally take portraits and they’re damn hard.

It was great fun being brunette though — I might stick with this look for a while longer.

52 weeks of colour part deux – week 11, aquamarine

Things will be different in the future

I started with this dreamy cyber-meringue gown sitting that was waiting for an opportunity to come out for a 52 weeks of colour challenge, and then thought, hmm, how to style it?

I just couldn’t get the blue-haired, fully post-apocalyptic look happening and I still wasn’t pleased with the softer style I tried. Later, when I was chatting to my new landlady about my lack of ability to find the tier box (a big aquamarine cube that I should have found easily this week), I yelled, “Wait, I need to set up a picture of a future cyber-woman taking a future robot pet for a walk and then I’ll be right over!” She is a great landscape designer and thankfully understood the immediacy of running with a crazy idea.

Bloomy-rella

When you’re in one of the prettiest places in Second Life and a radiant princess in white is lounging in the swing, what can you do but stop and take a picture?

I hope you like it, Bloomy.  And I hope a charming prince places a crystal slipper on that little bit of foot I can see poking out.

52 weeks of colour part deux – week 10, avocado

HMAS Bun Bun

This was the last part of my place remaining before hitting the ‘return to owner’ button so I wanted to take a picture for posterity’s sake. With a really cool lawn sprinkler, an umbrella and a rabbit. In some eccentric recess of my mind, it all makes perfect sense for this week’s colour challenge.

Avocado is one of my favourite foods, eaten crushed on toast, in a salad or a tomato, cucumber, red onion and avocado salsa that can top almost anything. My dogs also love avocado and the fruit’s oils help keep their coats shiny — the Fuerte are good as the hounds eat the soft skins as well. Okay, now this post has truly gone in too many directions.

Festival of Sin – Sloth

Socordia

The Festival of Sin is in its last days, the shops are still full of great wares and the crowds have slowed so getting around is a piece of cake (literally in the case of the gluttony section of the build).

I adore this outfit by Schadenfreude. Unfortunately Rudh couldn’t join me for a duo shot we’d been discussing as her computer is cactus and my SL home is closing at next-to-no notice. I have plans to nab her for a 52 weeks of colour photo soon though. Look out, Burger Fairy!
