ambiance

sometimes, it’s not about all the pieces to an outfit.. but, rather, the look as a whole. and now that my compy can handle shadows and shaders and lighting, the look as a whole also includes scenery and backgrounds.

for a blog that’s supposed to show off cool things i find && love, i apologize in advance for the fact that some of the photographs are just too damn dark to see everything properly. but! call it.. artistic expression? maybe? teehee~

atmosphere plays a big role in how i photograph now. i kinda.. take a step back, look at what i’m wearing, and decide what an appropriate backdrop would be. if i’m prancing around all cute && kawaii, being on a rusty steampunk sim just wouldn’t fit (no matter how much i like to mix contrasts!). and if i’m dark and *evil*, taking pictures by a pretty park fountain wouldn’t be right, either. finding the right *ambiance* can make a look really stand out, i think, but it’s actually finding it that’s the tough part.

i cannot tell you how many sims i bounced from while trying to take these pics — all while crashing roughly ten thousand times. but the result, in the end, is what matters. and it came out pretty perfect imho! \o/

see, it takes more work now than just puttin’ on a cute outfit and calling it a day. ;p

dark && discolored though it may be, you can kiiiiiinda see my outfit.. right? xD

the pants i’m wearing are a *freebie* from whippet & buck for the opening of the truth district. the gift actually comes with two tops i’m not showing && is most def worth snagging. and, luckily for us, all the group gifts will be out an extra three days — until july 8th — so there’s still plenty of time to de-prim and de-script and battle the lag monster for some fantastic goodies~

the tank top i’m wearing is from hucci && i’ll be honest, i hadn’t even planned on popping in to hucci today. but eboni khan is always so generous to her subscribo members ❤ that she dropped a 100L gift card on us today. 8D with the discount, this tank was only *25L* && it’s super cute. i love the flowy look the hem has and the fact that it gives just a li’l peek of the tummy without being completely bare it all. the price i paid only makes it that much better!

and this hair… from magika at the hair fair.. i mean, i bought a shit ton of hair already && plan to go back tomorrow (shopping trip! \o/ woo!), but this one i think is *by far* my favorite. i’ve said it in the past, but no one does long && whispy like sabina gully does and this hair is just… wonderful. i love the added braided piece and it reminds me a lot of the ren style i already love so much. this one is just a bit wavier && extra *sexy*.
