if i could describe today in one word.. it would be.. overwhelming. in a *really* good way.
pink fuel, as i’m sure the entire metaverse is aware, finally released elly && i fatpack’d that lovely face so fast. fifty linden friday was a good haul. i am so excited to blog this weekend and go all bubblegum again.. y’know.. if that’s still a thing… >.>
did i forget to mention i got an amazing new computer?
said amazing new computer runs, literally, eleventy bajillion times better than my old one. i was stuck in a pose stand inside a white box to blog — just because i had to keep my graphics settings low at *all* times. but now?
now i can run with shadows on… with beautiful graphics.. and i can finally see how truly gorgeous second life can be. i can also see how truly gorgeous my avatar can be, too. …*coughs*
so today! i bring you pinup-esque awesomeness, complete with a cameo from the always wonderful bff vivi. and i am so pumped to show off pictures that i can’t even stand it!!
just.. please be kind. it’s my first time pretending i’m a second life photographer. ;p if things look a little wonky, just chalk it up to me being a photog-virgin, mmkay?
i love that vivienne indulges me sometimes. i mean, she patiently stands around.. in a static pose.. while i fiddle with shit && she’s happy to do so (at least, methinks she is..). but i think, perhaps, she *enjoyed* posing with me today. she was a li’l bit o’ eye candy while i played around with windlights and shadows and depth of field and blah blah blah..
the high-waist shorts she’s wearing are from ricielli and i swear.. that brand is out to kill my wallet. there’s currently a huuuuge sale going on, that i have yet to *ravage*, but vivi’s already visited and picked up an entire year’s worth of sexy stuffs. there was that cheapie hunt not long ago, and now the sale.. i promise you, the entire store will find its way into our inventories over the weekend.
she paired the shorts with a dollarbie top from toxic kitty. and i know, okay, fourth of july is still a ways off. but the whole nautical theme kinda goes hand in hand with *patriotism* && even though technically it was vivi’s idea to be sailor pinups…
..i decided to go with it because of the *super* sexy new swimwear from candydoll.
the suit i’m wearing is red, white && blue.. but there are a bunch of other color choices. they all come complete with button detail on the front and *adorable* bow attachments for the chest and on the back. i love the way it’s designed, too — li’l cut outs on the side, the halter neck, and the textures are so smooth. i’d live in a swim suit like this, if i could.
and i suppose i actually can.. it is sl after all. x3
i know socks aren’t typical *beach wear*, but my heels from maitreya needed some love. i bought them last year during their sale (summer = sales, i swear!), but plopping ‘em on today made me realize just how well-made these shoes are. so yeah, i’ll wear socks if i wanna while on the beach. they match && they look good. problem?!
i realize my post for today may be a bit… all over the place. but i’m still sitting here, as i type this post, looking very much like this :: @___@ ! and i promise, no more vixxie in a white box unless i’m doing skin-related stuffs, it’s easier to see the skin when it’s on a plain background. and you gotta know, a post for elly is in the works for this weekend. a skin i’ve waited this long for definitely needs it’s own post!
