Ok so the poll ended up at 65% saying No they didn’t mind notes on flickr pics, 19% said they do, and 16% said sometimes, so that still leaves me where I was at, because I would be worried that I would note on the yes persons pics lol. Now I feel more frustrated than before *sooky la la’s*.
Tonight when I got on Milli Santos IM’d me about her New Couples poses, Her and Newdoll have opened a store together at Popfuzz. The store is called Ex-Pose and Roodle Noodle – so no more noodle box but a bigger brighter funna shared space with two aussie hellions.
Now being one person, and Mel and Fia not being around, I had to come up with a way of showing them to you on my own. Thank goodness for the VR Professional Posestand and Hud by VR Foundry , or I wouldn’t even have been able to take on the challenge. So with my total security of the locking camera feature I was able to take these pics as one person doing two poses.
Now the thing is that these couples sets are “Supposed” to be all romantical and stuff, but I had another thought entirely. Over Christmas I bought the St Trinians dvd, always a huge fan of the originals I wanted to see what it was like, and it was on sale. I am sure I am not the only one that does this, but watching the movie I got so excited about the clothes and shoes and what not, constantly thinking “ooooo I wanna blog that look”, and so on.
Those girls were crazy and so much fun at the same time, anyway I realised that these New couples sets by Ex-Pose could allow that to happen.
First poseball set is called Cheeky Kiss, but in my St Trinians mode it’s more of a ‘Do you wanna know a secret” pose set lol. On a shopping trip with Newdoll a few weeks back I totally shopped with this future post in mind.
We were actually at Popfuzz – see fate I tell you – and had come across the Nyte n Day satelite store, wanting to go and check out the main as it had been far too long, we tp’d over and I headed straight for a set that I had coveted on Kit months ago. The set is the Libertine set by Nyte n Day .
The Libertine set comes with all the pieces you could need to look all Private Schoolgirly, one of my favourite parts of this set is the System Skirt, nope the skirt isnt system its the bottom of the jacket that is, a totally perfect use of the flared out upper of the skirt layer giving the blazer more body, GENIUS.
Now the tall me on the left is in full Libertine, the shorter gossipy me is wearing the Salopette Fishnet Stockings from Dutch Touch . Not only do you get the stockings but the fab suspendered look is part of them, so very racey indeed.
Both hairstyles are from Kin , yes I ended up going back again with Digit and we shopped like nutters. The very 80’s and totally how I wore mine back when I was in High School style is called Karei, a side pony style that is just totally fun… the style on the right and the larger pic is Shannon , also very 80’s for me with its layered look , but mine is and was longer.
Having shown both in the past, and so not caring that I have lol, because I will again. The two shoe styles are Diva on the top and High Oxfords on the bottom, both from Tesla and both fantastic shoes for this and many other looks.
The second poseball couples set is Gotcha by Ex-Pose, I told you that those girls were crazy, but you can totally see when done with a couple this pose is hot hot hot. When other schools came to compete with St. Trinians girls they were going to have to accept that there was going to be a smack down lol.
That’s what I really like about photography inworld, largely in part to the fabulous pose makers, and the minds of the individuals that purchase them – or in this case are lucky enough to be given them.
It’s totally up to you what you see in a pose or set, something created with a specific theme in mind can be used in such a different way, and that’s what makes us so lucky. So the poor me getting smacked down is wearing the Emme set by Nyte n Day, this is available in a range of different colours, but I was feeling the Maroon colour as I think , dont quote me, but the rivals of St. Trinians had a similar colour in their uniform, and also because I really like the combo of Maroon and grey :P.
Emme is semi high waisted and the short pleated flexi skirt is just lovely. My only pine with this set is that the high waist band portion isn’t on a seperate layer if I wanted to wear that look with other shirts…but still can wear the skirt with longer shirts to compensate.
The rough and tumble me is wearing the shirt layer and skirt from the Libertine, because you wouldn’t want to get your blazer dirty, and any evidence of a brawl can be covered up that way lol.
Last week I think it was, Ashia Tomsen of Freestyle, IM’d me with ‘You like Latex don’t you” or something like that.. a big YES and a LM was passed. She blogged a wonderful group item from SHI and was letting me know there were more goodies to see.
The store is very fetish orientated, so be prepared and respectful of that. Well worth the trip, because not only do they have fabulous latex clothing, but OMG the booooooots, and OMG the prices. These boots are the Black Leather boots, I also have the Latex and the NEW released yesterday OMG Whimsy will die, Ballet Boots YUM YUM YUM YUM YUM YUM YUM , those I will be showing soon also.
The leather work and sculpties on these are marvelous, and the buckles and straps running up the whole length of the boots are divine. I can’t wait for more releases in the future from SHI and I am so greatful to Ashia for letting me know about this store.
High Oxfords from Tesla also come in a Berry that just go perfectly with the Emme Maroon/Grey by Nyte n Day. The hair on the rival me is Shaggy Chic by Dernier Cri this style can withstand a smack down as its tousled to begin with, the hair on the ruffian me is Short Layered Aveda by ETD , got to love the Aveda styles they don’t date at all.
The Oopsy Daisy Star bandaids I have on after being beaten up are really old from House of Paisley thats now Crush Factory , not too sure if they are still available , but handy to have when your school has a rival .
A long time ago Fleur created the Biba make up for the Vivant skin line, now this was a favourite of Kit Maitlands for so long, and is so beautiful. Recently they released the Biba make up in the newer Allure skin line and the outcome is just as tantalising.
I am wearing both the Truffle and Alabaster skin tones in the Biba 1 make up, the rich lips and dark and smokey black eyes are fabulous for not only rebel teens, but all sorts of fantastic looks. But if you were anything like my friends and I back in high school , heavy eyeliner was the norm.
Make sure that if you were a fan of the Biba Vivant you venture into Fleur and check out the Biba Allure it really is gorgeous.
