Pose Maker Challenge
Achariya posted a Pose Maker Challenge, and that challenge is brilliant. I myself give credit to the posemakers I use in every post, as well as the ones that may end up on the cutting room floor, but alot of the time that can just become more info.
My choice for posemakers would have to be Maitreya, not because I am into the whole best, better etc thing, but just for the fact that I honestly believe they changed how we looked at ourselves. Until Maitreya released animated poses/stands I had never moved other than changing between stands in my AO.
I do not know if they were the first and even if they were the 50th it was them that had me then, and still now begging for more. This first stand was in one of my AO’s for over a year, it was my absolute favourite stand… it is the 01.2 CCBirdgirl Stand and I love it, not only did it have such a lovely hip weight shift balance, but the arms stretching out behind you and a raise up on your toes animation while doing so had me in lust with it from the start.
This was my version of the arms stretching up in the air, which I always used to laugh at when people did it back then, and because I was usually working and dealing one on one with customers, this one wasnt too crazy to have in my AO.
In the pic I am wearing the Kellie tank from CKS Designs in the lovely Yellow colour, with the Dark Grey Ligeia jeans also from CKS Designs… actually to make it easier all the clothing today is from CKS Designer Kit Maitland.
All of the wonderful skins I am wearing are the latest release from TULI, this is the Natalie skin a new line of skins in lovely tones and make ups. There are 7 tones in the skins and there are an abundance of eyebrow options in the form of eyebrow bases.
The shading is lovely and I really like the collarbone and detailing on the body. The make up shown is very basic but gives you an overall feel for the skinline, there is also a light smattering of freckles over the nose, not too much that it conflicts with make up… so DEMO DEMO DEMO.
The boots are the Anessa boots by Adam n Eve, named after the lovely Anessa Stine of On Your Toes blog. Fabulous ankle boots with such wide and chunky straps that are so much fun, especially with the ginormous buckle, very stylish and in great textured suedes…try the demos asap.
The hair is one of the New releases from TRUTH , a fantastic newly opened store, with such marvelous new hair in amazing new textures…also finally the Male Skins have been released, so if you are a female fan of Truth and have yourself a man in need, take him there and demo him up.
This style is Wendy and its a lovely side pony updo look ,and I have to say as angry as I am that the textures are all different these new ones are gorgeous.
Definitely the pose that rocked the planet lol. This is the 04 cup50 ccmodel pose by Maitreya, now there had been a few stores that had poses shown in their posters that covered their bits, but they kept those poses pretty much to themselves…I remember one skin maker starting out and asking me where another skinner got a pose like that from…then came the release of this pose by Maitreya and it was instant fandom.
Now as you know I don’t do nakey, but there have been times that lingerie was lacey or in the case of the Love Bug set by CKS Designs, I need a bit more coverage lol, well this pose had all that and is just so lovely in a perfectly modest way.
Now the Love Bug has barely any modesty lol, I think this set is adorable and as I have stated in the past Kit has this habit of creating a panties set that she can run around the grid in for days, this is the latest. I have had this set for a while, and as soon as I unpacked it I had to work out how to wear it to NOT show my parts lol, luckily for me Miss Kit and Kaboodle does her clothing on all layers and layers upon layers upon layers.
For a bit of modesty, you can wear the raised version of the top over the top that isn’t, and it’s cuter if you use a contrasting colour. The panties are a fabulous boycut style, and the socks are just lovely. SO next time you feel in the mood for panty raiding a sim near you, go all Love Bug.
Very Exciting was the fact that the New Autumn style by TRUTH has a so cute headband that comes in a great range of colours, I did tint the white one for the teal colour, but the others are part of the texture change, and the style looks way cute with Love Bug. Just look how fabulous the tummy and bum of the Natalie Skin by TULI looks with this set.
Perfect for babydolls but so sexy was the release of the 08 CCRunway pose by Maitreya, this animation is pure raunchy and has to much attitude I love it to bits. It is the SL equivelant of the Legally Blonde Bend & Snap. As with many of the animated stands you can capture different parts of them with pics that just make them pop.
I use the slow animation option in Advanced>Character menu and it gives you so much more in every animation to take pics of.
The skin in this shot is the Natalie in Gothic tone, this tone is just beautiful..the make up is subtle and the face structure is really prominant in this tone, again the light freckles across the nose really work it, it’s very pretty.
The hair is Erin by TRUTH, this style has all the waves and beauty of a glamour girl, Truth has used a few different methods with the latest styles it seems, and they are all working.
The dress set is Pristine by CKS , I am so glad that Kit did this set in other colours, as it was originally released in only white, now there is a whole slew of pretty colours to choose from, and OMG socks with bowssssssssssssssssss. This dress is another one of those look at me look at me outfits Kit does so well, and I wore it and he did â™¥.
The shoes in this pic and the next are again the Mistral heels by Adam n Eve as shown in the past but really needed to be shown again because they rock.
I have shown this dress a few times in the past, I can’t help it it is just that lovely. This is the Posh dress and it comes in lovely satin colours…like Apple and Cherry and Champagne Pink mmmmmmmmmmm. A great cocktail dress for dancing in the arms of a loved one, and wiggle walking to drive them wild *giggles* not that I do that kind of thing :P.
This animation and the next are of course The Diva poses ………………………………………………………. do you remember what you were doing ? lol. I remember the little Maitreya store in the sky being so jam packed full of people that no one could move or tp in so I hijacked a few to hinode to get them there lol.
Another secret is that the first movie I ever filmed isn’t the one thats on Youtube, but it is in fact in the rubbish. Only Beau and Onyx know that I really tried to make a movie of the Diva poses, but having no idea what I was doing, and a really low memory older PC it was a big fail…Beau felt sorry for me though and made a movie that he let me be in showing the Diva Poses , and its the movie that launched them so to speak because it was the first visual of them if memory serves me right.
Movie HERE, anyway the poses are so incredibly beautiful and really had so much going on in them that captured your attention, for me the 19 and 20 diva poses are my favourite because they are so theatrical.
Again using the slow animations function really gives you so many ways to take pics with the one animation.
The lovely New Bangles called Arta are by Dela, they come in different layer sizes and are a new style of creating by Kura which she is very excited about. The hair is Felicity 2 and again a gorgeous New Style by TRUTH, the curls and the incredible bangs of this hair make it a MUST HAVE.
This last look isusing Diva pose 20, as I said totally theatrical and so beautiful. The dress I am wearing is an old CKS Design called Temptress, it comes in lovely asian textures and the gold is one of my favourites, the cut out at the front again shows off the beautiful body detailing in the Natalie skins by TULI.
This is one way to be culturally sexy, the hair rose by Essentia in gold adds that little bit more, and the lovely Felicity style by TRUTH is just VA VA VOooooom.
Great thing about that slow animations function is that you can catch your smiles when you shoot pics :), and if that doesn’t work you can always grab a free emoter from VR Foundry.
Thank you Beauvoir Rousselot of Maitreya for not just the memories tied into the poses/animations for the beauty that you add to my movements :).
A big thank you to ALL the creators of poses and animations across the grid, choosing one to feature was hard, but going back timeline wise was fitting for me at least .
