Whimsy and I talk about Collective Conscious all the time, the fact that SL residents are such a wading pool of ideas and creative streaming…it is no wonder there is often an overlap.

Today I was taking all my pics of skins as the upcoming Vanity Universe annual skin fair is just around the corner, and I realised that I needed to locate the banners. Of course my note cards wouldn’t open so I went in search on Nadja Baxters flickr, and lo and behold there she was in her most recent post wearing the same lingerie I just shot for mine lol…funny part of this though is that it is not a new release, and I had been so behind in my posting that I hadn’t blogged it yet, so I actually did go in search of it in my inventory.

I personally never think it is an issue like some, one of my all round pet peeves is when I see a blogger say that an item has already been seen so they didn’t blog it, or something so crazy as that. Nadja has her readers, I have mine, regardless of feeds and what not, you should never deprive the designer of your take on an item, or the readers for that matter. I can see an item ten times and it can be the 11th that makes me go OMG wants. Feeds were and are only supposed to be tools to make it easier to navigate to the main source of a post, that is one of the main reasons I do a teaser up front, that and the fact that I think the less you put on a feed the lighter the load and memory needed for the feeds to function.

So back to the task at hand, the skin fair starts on Sunday at 3pm, that I am guessing is due to the time difference for Nadja and all of the other people responsible for the fair. It is nice to start later in the day though, it gives everyone that chance to build up momentum. You are going to need it too, there are so many incredible stores this year, and the sim is layed out in a three building stack, which hasn’t really varied from last years, so it will be easy for many to navigate.

One of the many stores about to take part is Tuli, and the breathtaking new release of Zoe will be at the fair, and for all you Tuli fans and future lovers, the skin is superb. There are so many options and variations in the skins packs, you have a bazillion eyebrow colours, and I might be exaggerating but she has gone so far as to include bleached and copper as options.

Zoe has an amazing face and body as usual, and there are other options created on the tattoo layers to enhance your overall look. Freckles, Cleavage, Lashes , Brows , and lipsticks, eyebrow shape and the actual shape that Tuli wears for the ad for the skins promotion, which is copy/mod so you can make changes as you need. This is a lot to play around with, and if you recieved her latest group gift of teeth and beauty spots and so on those can only make it all that more fun…apparently the teeth are still in the store for free.

In all the pics I am wearing Novel, a new style by Elikatira, so pretty are these victory curls that it is vintage love but in such a way as to have a modern twist. It has that half up and then lightly pulled back out of the face look Elika is so good at, make for easy showing of great make ups.

The chair and table I am showing in the pic are from the Chic Limited event Anti Valentine by Cheeky Pea, so comfy with a huge choice of poses. Cheeky Pea is not only named awesome but a great store to explore. But for these you will have to go to Chic Limiteds skybox.

Mark your calender for Sunday and prepare to skin shop like a crazy person….

To be inspired it awesome, often is the case that those seeking inspiration can get discouraged and lose their way, not such the case with todays items. Nearly everything I am wearing was inspired by something, and they followed their instincts and produced it perfectly.

First off the ChiC Management event is starting tomorrow and has a group of incredible designers under one skybox roof, with a theme. The items are beautiful and seriously the skirt from Berries Inc is now one of my top ten favourite skirts of all time. BUT not how it was created lol, due to some serious viewer issues on my end the white frills that are supposed to exist between each layer at the back did not rez for yonks, but I fell so in love with it that way, that I took copy and edited them away. The crisp military look of this Amalia skirt is just divine, and even though I could have mixed it with some serious LeLutka Military stuff from their last release, I went further back to an old fav blouse.

The grecian dress on the right is all Royal Blue love, she has been creating up a storm lately both in RL and SL, her poor sewing fingers are aching. So that she has been able to do anything for us is a bonus. The skirt comes on two attachment points, but also has an alpha layer to take away your bum, so that your ao wont effect the look.

Now the Hair OMG it is about to be released in moments and is the new styles from LeLutka and they are STUNNING Must Haves, omg so sexy and just totally addictive wearables. The scarf hair Scarab is texture change and both styles are just awesome. You can also get them on Marketplace if you hurry and want to get them before anyone at the store lol.

The other week when I did the Ballgowns and Ballgags post I alluded to my next mixed theme. Mel of course coming up with it, but to my surprise there is not one of the items on marketplace at all. Now this is bizarro world to me, because I would assume this would have been made dozens of times,but either the spelling of the listings are wrong, or google can’t spell, because I checked my spelling twice just in case.

His theme was Lederhausen and roller skates, no kidding it was, and such a fun and frollicky idea too. But alas no lederhausen, and I couldn’t handle tping all over the place, so I improvised and then changed completely. But to my surprise also Mel was the one that found the awesome Rollerskates I am wearing that are actually also scripted to be iceskates, an all in one pair that has its own hud to change colours of boots, wheels, laces, and warmers, all so fabulous and the price is fantastic.

The skates come with their own AO and they are so easy to use, not only do they look great, but the all in one is a wonderful space saver. The railing I am leaning against is the latest from Diesel Works, the railing comes in both three piece arch shape or straight , the fun thing about it as soon as I saw it was that you could build your own rink lol. The style is very stylish, it could also work on a ship, on a balcony or even a runway… all so much fun and great poses.

The hairstyles I am wearing are the other two released on the weekend by LeLutka, again anime inspired and lots of fun, I especially love the sweep up high front of the Pam style. Claire by Tuli is the skin I am wearing, another recent release, and be sure to check out the new build over at the Journey Sim, Tuli has worked hard on it as usual, great changes to many sims at the moment with the new year.

In the top pic I am wearing the white loose shirt from Mr Poet, such a nice casual look, and just the right side of sexy being a mans shirt and all, the closes I could think for the lederhausen was the shorty overalls from Ivanka Akina, but then I decided last minute to go with the denim shorts from the same store. I stopped by Bubble yesterday and picked up this fun ruffled bodysuit that works so well for skating, and adding a shrug from sn@tch for added warmth with all that ice to skate on.

War war is stupid

Elikatira released new hair the other day, and the style is one that works as both a professional pulled back look, as well as an adorable youthful style.I really enjoy the colours of Elikatira’s range, there is something sun touched about this one, even though a brown it has the makings of a blonde.

I was having an 80’s flashback with the look today, tulle and military looks, what more can one fashionista over 30 ask for.The skirt is tres fab because of its solid  sculpted structure underneath, mixed with the whirly flexi tulle above. The jacket made me giggle, because I imagined what I would get medals for, I have in the past seen such things with their own giggle worthy info, but these are left sleek and shiny and up to your own imagination. I know Whimsy deserves a medal for trying to save all the Paper Couture shoes while they burned Tableau to the ground earlier this week, that was a hoot…you can see some pics of that on my flickr.

This is definitely a fun and frivolous outfit, and I am looking forward to more fun from LeLutka in the future, there is a definite slant towards mixed aesthetics coming from over there of late, yay for 2011.

Ok so now that I got my rant on earlier, now is the time for some pretty pretties. First off some beautiful new skin from Tuli, the Emma skin is a lovely fresh faced beauty, and now with the new tones and omg lush eyebrows you can play all day with the variet of make up choices. Now the eye shadows come on the base skins themselves and the lipsticks are separate, so with the ability to wear that many lippies with one shadow is awesome. I really like the new tones, but I am so loving the copper eyebrows as shown in the main skins pics.

All the better to show off the new hair from Exile, va va voooooom they get sexier each and every release. The second blonde style Stephy is actually a donation style for the fundraiser that Voshie Paine is running, so be sure to go and grab it to help out the little girl Kajsa and her family.

The other day Mel and I were out and about and he saw some leggings on a girl, and said wow that took some work from the designer, and I told him that I had them, and yes, lots of work to create such a complex design so well. Osakki since they reopened has had not only these leggings but many more, and some fantastic outfits that are very out there fashion wise, in the good look at me way.

In the top pic I am wearing some fun Pididdle items, with the fab patent belt from Maiiki, the yellow in the high waist skirt is just wonderful and the sweater is a cropped length so it is great having both items on all layers, giving the ability to make sure it all works. The Pea Coat trench I am wearing is system skirt love from Eclectic Apparel.

Eclectic has used the template superbly to create this lovely design piece. that can be worn as a dress on its own, or over pants or another skirt due to the use of the system skirt. This is the type of outfit that just screams late night rendesvous with dark and handsome men or women, whatever way you roll.

The boots I am wearing are the most recent release from SLInk, they are a great hiker style boot, and I just love their ruggedness that makes them totally wearable in the opposite more clean and sleek fashion conscious way. Or you can just go hiking, but I like my way better lol. There is an option to wear with or without the sock at the top, which is nice and easy to do with the hud, the leather is soft and comfy, and I am so looking forwards to more in the SLink line I hear rumors of other accessories :P.

SL Stock Images Group on Flickr

Matriarch_003 SL Stock Images Group

RoyExample

MatriarchRoyal3

A long while ago I was inspired by Cajsa Lilliehook of It’s Only Fashion, to make a Flickr Group. So what is so different about this Flickr Group than others you may ask? Well it is called SL Stock Images, which might actually give you a clue of its purpose. The reason it was inspired by Cajsa, is that she is one of those bloggers that can find the most amazing of locations to shoot her images, and actually compiles a notecard, which she updates often, and sends out to the other blogger groups. But when “I” – this is one of those moments you want to make the word I bigger than it is – try and shoot on location, I can never find the right looking sim, or get my lighting sorted, or not crash a million times, or just everything works against me, that hours go by and I just end up tping back to my VR Studio and taking all my pics there and working on them in PS.

But when I am NOT looking to shoot something, I find awesome locations, or get inspired by just the way a planter pot is leaning against a wall of some delapitated shed somewhere. Somewhat like the things you see when you actually google stock images, that you may want to use for post processing, and often the ones that would be perfect are not free to use, so you end up back where you started.

So I made the group, and then Hair Fair and other things distracted me, and with Cajsa being not so well lately, I felt it was time to actually do something with the group. So today I went to a location that I knew was kind of interesting, and took some pictures, with various lighting and shadows…and uploaded them to the group. Once the pictures are put in the group they are for anyone to use, in Second Life ads, photography, blog pics and so on, they are not to be used commercialy or given away, and to submit pictures in the group means that you took them yourself, or made the backdrops in PS/Gimp yourself.

I could have take a picture in this wonderful location while I was there, dressed as I am, but decided to instead do my own merging using the stock image. So you can see the blending of the image above with the pic of me in the VR Studio, and then the after work and final image. I hope many contribute to the group, and find some inspiration to use the stock images for their own work…if you are a location photographer blogger, consider every time you shoot a scene doing one or more pics without you in them, and adding them to the group. They could even come in handy for you yourself to use again in the future, or even if something goes wrong, you can use them to mend your other work.

So I was working away, got the IM “have you been to _________” I hadn’t and from the name; I knew I would have remembered if I had. So Newdoll TP’d me and while she crashed a few times I looked around with her joining me every second store. We came across the cutest items…which ended with us tping far and wide from satelite store to main, finding even yummier goodies.

Now prim nails are a bit tricky to pose with, as with different poses comes different hand angles, so prim nails can shift a bit, but these and others were so irresistible I couldn’t contain myself. Love Soul has not only these Punk Girl nails, but also matching Punk Girl wristband, and Punk Girl Tie.

You will have to have a mod shape and bring your hands to 20, I had to size mine down from 25 , the gloves that cover your skin nails are tintable and it was so easy to do, the nails are no mod though, but there are Demos to see if they are the right fit for you.

Connected to Love Soul is Junwave, I have not been there for ages, and neither had Newdoll and we more than made up for it tonight, we both got at least a half dozen new to us styles, which was fabulous, this one is the Pompadourtail which I love, and had to recreate their vendor ad with the HoC Glasses that I couldn’t resist buying off Xstreet recently, I love them so much and they are colour change too.

Wearing the belt lift version of a Tank from Popfuzz with the latest release from Dark Eden , the Extreme Cutoffs are just that, extreme!. I have been wearing them on and off since I got them, and it’s like wearing a denim thong, which is just too naughty.

The Kanji Rip Jeans also by Dark Eden come in an assortment of denim colours, with coloured asian script and images on the legs, the rips are just worn and torn fabulous…and with the silkscreen effect up the legs, these are a must have for jeans wearers.

They come in both layers for a perfect boot fit, as well as giving you the options you may need due to tops being extended onto pants layers these days also, more options the better ;) well done Etain ♥ these denims are gorgeous.

Speaking of Gorgeous, or in this case Hope. These are the about to be released Hope Skins by Tuli, last week Tuli sent her group a sneak peak in the form of the Group Gift in Natural, and the Picks Prize that is still available and spoken of previously.

These are the rest of the make ups that are to come, and they are superb. Tuli has considered all sorts of needs in this make up range, from a fresh morning dewy look, to a rave party diva need, it is all there you just need to find your inner Hope.

Take the oppurtunity of the generous offerings in the group and picks rewards, to get to know the Hope skin for the next few days, it is released on the 5th so you have time to embrace all that is Hope until then. I am wearing tan in the main pic and the face pics, the rest of the tones are in the shorts pictures, five in total and just beautiful bodies.

The kicking Cowboy boots I am wearing are from No Label, they are great boots for tucking in such great jeans to, or even better for your next daisy dukes or Extreme Denim Shorts moments.
