A Reading in Italy

Snapshot_231 1

 

Lea was back on the island. Since her book had been translated to Italian, her agent had been receiving invitations from book stores and literary circles all over the country to come and read for her audience. They were organizing an European tour anyways, so this would give her the chance to go back to the villa on the island where she had loved to stay while she was in the writing process.

She had done her first reading today and it had gone well. For the event she had picked silken red and blue paisley rompers and a lace top that formed a dressy chic but still boho ensemble that she completed with a pair of flat leather sandals. She had left her hair flow simply over her shoulders.

Now that the mundanities were over with she was spending the best part of her day walking uphill across the Italian countryside in the warm spring breeze coming from the sea to go to the beloved villa. She met the shepherd with his sheep and his herding dog on her way home and they walked together for a bit.

The Dark Side of the Moon

Vanity Poses - Details avatar portrait face sl second life make up [DB]Poses - feel tattoo sl second life lingerie black

Stars, hide your fires; Let not light see my black and deep desires.”

William Shakespeare, Macbeth

Sometimes I just feel dark deep down and I don’t want to see bright colors and happy tones and hear springy bird songs and I just want to stay inside, wrapped in my darkest thoughts, and read stories about love and death, about time passing and the meaning of life and the nonsense of it all.

Those days I turn my back to the sun, close the curtains and light a candle, inventing my own world, my own universe, my own shadows, my own light. And I dream. Sometimes, in my dreams, there are brown horses, deep seas, japanese lovers and sirens. Those are my own personal tales, the ones my mind writes for me after I close my eyes.

Then I wake up and log into Second Life and create my own semi conscious dream. But it’s all linked, each dream follows the previous dream and readings, dreams, SL get mixed and blurred and sometimes I lose myself. So, today, as a result of this whole process, I have decided to take SL pictures where my avatar would be in an empty house, wearing nothing but make up, shoes, a tattoo and lingerie. I would have skipped the lingerie but we’re trying to keep it PG, right ?!

Who Needs a Dress ?!

This post is dedicated to the Zenith Gacha @ Shiny Shabby that has a wonderful dress in it but never wanted to give it to me, so I had to do with dozens of tables, frames, headpieces and violins. Finally, I think I had more fun playing with the “who needs a dress” thing that if I had actually won the dress ^^.

Made With Love

Soooo, there were some interesting developments in my freshly started blogger life. I think the most important was to find a solution for my photos. I absolutely love exploring SL, wander around, find a nice location, tune up the graphic settings and shoot my heart’s content. Unfortunately, my beloved Firestorm was letting me down and that was saddening and frustrating. My only computer is a MacBook Air and I LOVE it but it was all a bit too much and I got textures discarded messages and empty shots. That was a big deal. I asked for advice in the *splendid* SL Bloggers Support Group and someone ( I’m sorry I forgot who you are, if you read this, I thank you with all my heart ) told me about the Alchemy Viewer, that is pretty similar to FS but lighter on the machine. I had tried other viewers and they just made me want to cry so I tested Alchemy, did a whole photo shoot with the graphics settings ultra, shadows, antialiasing out there in the wild and it just worked as a charm. So now i use FS  for everything and when I am ready to shoot, I switch to Alchemy and tadaaaaa ! So I am a much happier blogger now 🙂

Phewww, that was some explaining huh, I really needed to get it off my chest.

The other topics are much lighter.

I was having issues when using Lumipro lighting, my hair looked greyish. And today I understood what was happening. It happens with the Mina hair  (which I love) with materials only. If I use the same hair without materials, it does not happen anymore. So YAY 2 blogger problems solved ! \o/

Last topic and then I’ll just flood you with pics and credits

I have been wearing a M shape for  while and I was pretty happy and content with it, and this time I decided to give a try to the L shape. Well, I did not feel so comfortable, and I had a serious hard time adjusting the slink hands and feet. I will return to my M shape and stick with it from now on.

OK. That’s all. I’m done babbling.

Shiny Shabby is back and I must say it is one of my favorite events (maybe just my favorite) in second life, and I had been excited for days, counting the hours until the opening. I brought a lot of things that I will be showing you guys in the next days, but anyways, this is the first outfit and photo shoot that came up right after I came home with all my treasures 🙂
