Virtuosity 11.11

Where words become worlds…

Clearing out the Cobwebs.

Last year I celebrated the pagan holiday of Yule for the first time, specifically the Norse leaning traditions that go along with it.  As the year begins a new, I started a few new ventures to try to realize the hopes, dreams and resolutions I had for the coming year.

My second year in Second Life has been quite different from the first, my second rez day will be March of this year.  I’ve learned a lot along the way and the more I reflect back on it all, the more I’m glad I came.  Even though it has not been all sunshine, it has definitely changed me for the better.  Though I can’t collect the physical photos of everything I’ve done in the last couple of years, I have lots of fond memories.

Looking over the memories

 

My newest virtual adventure is a foray into clothing making.  I’m still figuring things out, but I finally got a store up and my first set of shirts made.  I think that trying new things helps us express ourselves.  I did parts of the decal by hand and then fancied them up in photoshop.

My hope is for this year to be a year of learning new skills, trying new things and setting out on new adventures.  So glad to have you all along for the ride!  – Nat

Winter 2015 Look Book

Hi Everyone!

Blue here.  I’ve been hunkering down at my desk, trying to be a grad student, which is why I have not been on here as much.  As I start to see a glimmer of light at the end of my very, very long tunnel, my friends have reminded me that once in a while, I must duck out and enjoy the seasons.  Since Natalya started to do it, I thought I’d continue the tradition of a Look Book!  Often, I will see someone in SL, or see a picture of them in Flickr, and I want to know where they got their beautiful outfit, or their hair, or their skin or eyes.  So, I thought I’d share some of my favorite outfits with you, along with where you might find them.

I start with the one that I wear most often during the holidays, since you just never know when you’ll be in a sim with ice!  You’ve always gotta be prepared, right?

Retouched

Hello, Winter!

This outfit (as are many of the ones I put together) is a bricolage from a lot of different sets.  My inventory is terrible, I admit – just a total mess, but when I find things I like, I tend to include them in other places – like this!

I added a little bit of a vignette (love doing that to my pictures), softened the lines, and added text using http://www.picmonkey.com

For the rest, please check out below, and enjoy!
