Pose Appreciation Week II

The week is actually long over now, but given I’m behind on my color challenge, too, I figure, better late than never! Anyway, two other posers I happily use on this blog quite a bit are Magnifique and Marukin. Both create well-set individual poses; I especially love the unique themed sets from Marukin, and I’ve gathered quite a few cute multi-person ones from Magnifique over time, including this Winter Wonderland pose from last year.

Also, I definitely time to break out the snow that I don’t get in real life, with designers obliging in kind! Auxiliary first released a version of the adorably cozy Cropped Double above at the Cinema even, but now has an everyday version available in store. And Ronsem busted out this leather jacket in a few different shades that required a bit of help deciding from my male fashionisto here. Both are mesh (though starting this post, won’t be denoting such anymore).

Belted

A good pair of jeans can be hard to find for the sole reason of the texturing. Some photosource, some handdraw, but when it looks right, it looks amazing! And I love how Ivy retextured Tyr’s already fabulous bell-bottom jeans for Auxiliary‘s offering at this month’s Collabor88. There’s quite a few combinations to choose from, all with this belt built in, which I think is really the biggest win!

52 Weeks of Color – Papaya Whip & Hunter Green

Just in time for the cold weather to literally roll in like a mass of thunder (gotta love Texas weather), fri.day has released a series of fitted mesh jackets to wear! Actually, the jackets were released about a month or two ago while I was in the process of moving. Either way, there’s multiple colors to choose from (along with a few different styles), and one happens to fit one of the colors in this 52WoCC pair! Along with Papaya Whip, I pulled out this chair from ibang for Hunter Green that’s a great little pose prop.

52 Weeks of Color – Hot Cinnamon & Royal Blue

The continued quest to catch up includes two colors in which it was difficult to figure outfits for both. But, once I saw what I needed, the rest came together pretty easily. The above dress in Hot Cinnamon is one of the offerings from Essences you’ll find at My Attic this round (though I think the other color options are a bit more fun). I’m also loving this newer hair from Truth; the style has volume without being overdone & the rigging sits perfectly for me. It’s a new staple, that’s for sure.

And then with Royal Blue, well. I feel like a box of crayons! It’s a brighter shade of blue, so once I realized this sweater from Celoe has been sitting in my inventory unused, I decided to follow suit with the rest. Flip that, then, for the skybox, which sadly is no longer available, as Molto Bene! is closed. The pose, however, is from a newer pose designer and all around adorable person under the banner of Muse! Ellie has a few very affordable poses, as well as fantastic bruises for you roleplayers out there.

52 Weeks of Color – Russett & Feldgrau

Oh, hello there! Been awhile, right? I know. The last month has been spent moving apartments (a process that took at least 2 weeks, and was actually two moves… don’t ask), and getting deep into some roleplay. Alas, this fell by the wayside. Not just the challenge, but blogging in general. But! All seems to be settling now, so here comes the first of many.

I love both of the tops in these shots, since the tank at paper.doll fits one of my mesh shapes perfectly, and this Ducknipple tank/sweater combo comes with a HUD for color change options. Both fabulous & already in my regular wardrobe rotation.

Mullet

Hey, I’m alive! RL has ramped up a little bit for me, mostly cause I’m doing the grand ol’ move, but now with a few elements in order, I can relax again, and get back to blogging pretty stuff. If you haven’t made it over to Collabor88 for this month yet, you better, because Tyr & Ivy knocked out these rad Mullet tops for Auxiliary in gorgeous colors. If you’ve already picked up the skinny jeans or their recent Luna jeans, it’s made to fit right over them, but it also works with others, too.

(Note the new location, too! Collabor88 is now on it’s own sim.)

52 Weeks of Color – Wales, Jonquil, Tyrian Purple

Vintage Fair has a little over a week left (closes August 29th!), & I feel like I didn’t even crack the shell on what’s available. There’s so much! Sn@tch has these cute fluffy dresses that worked perfect with this pose from oOo Studio & shoes from ChaChaDie for “Wales”, and the top in “Tyrian Purple” is brand new paper.doll. PD has been one of my favorite stores for awhile, but the mesh items coming out of Zoey’s head lately are just so cute. Luckily, for “Jonquil” (brand new word to my vocabulary!), I’ve had this E! Eclectic sweater I’ve been sitting on, waiting to use in a post. Fate converged on this one, lemme tell ya!
