When I met you in the summer… (Pose Fair, Part II)

posefair_bouncethis1 posefair_vanity1

We’re past the midway point now of Pose Fair 2014, with less than 5 days left to go! I’ve had these poses photographed since Day 2, but then, life piled on anything it could. Luckily there’s still time to pick items up before they’re gone! (Well, most will likely end up in mainstores, but who knows when, right? Right!)

Just in time for summer, both Bounce This Poses and Vanity Poses have released sets for your beachy fun. The top set (BTP) might technically be geared towards girls, but I think you can swing a couple guys into the set just fine. Thank you to Sora, Lundy, & Clint for hanging out & posing with me!

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.

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!

52 Weeks of Color – Rust, Cadmium Red, Astronaut Blue, & Persian Rose

As this challenge crosses the halfway mark, I’m really finding it hard to continue. But it’s not because of a lack of ideas for clothes. Lord knows there is plenty out there, in my inventory, & on the walls of shops, freshly released to steal our pocket change. I think I just get behind on one week, then it piles up. And just like my last catch-up, this one’s covering multiple weeks (try four!) But hey, gives me a great chance to get good use out of Glitterati’s offering for the last round of Stumblebum Brigade (in its current format). The mesh frame comes with ten different colors and poses, all that fit my avatar perfectly (though you can adjust with a simple /1a command).

For these weeks,  I chose something old (Fishy Strawberry’s Ignition lingerie, among my favorite), and a whole lotta new/newish. Aura’s mesh Grimm corsets, beautiful as they are, were first released for Glam Affair’s Fairy Tale event, but you can find them now in store. Similarly, paper.doll released partial mesh tunics for a previous round of Stumblebum that I’ve been wearing on regular rotation, since I love how they fit. Then, we have some system clothing-textured gems: an old tanktop from Erratic and a new line of drawn shorts from Surf Couture!

Going For a Stroll

Another gift you’ll find from the Taste of Second Life 2nd Birthday Hunt is this cute pose from Bounce This Poses. I don’t often grab couples poses because I don’t use them much, but I love when they inspire a setting, like this one. Could easily be used in a park or elsewhere. You’ll also find this bag over at Evolve; it’s a recent release with quite a few different patterns & options, but the free gift is a cozy brown weaved version with hearts along the front that’s very cute!

Mix ‘n Match

One thing I managed to grab before leaving for a nerd convention for four days was both this new tank top at Action and the second May VIP gift from paper.doll! The bikini gift comes with a few options for the bottom, and the tank itself has a HUD that offers a few graphic options as well as colors – both just fantastic and perfect for summer.

52 Weeks of Color – Tea Green

Bit late on this, since this was last week’s color… alas, better than to skip it! I was feeling pretty casual, cause the word tea itself just makes me relax, so pulled out these pants from Whippet & Buck that I’ve used a few times when lounging in SL. (Let’s be honest, I lounge iRL much like that, too!) And I’m glad to finally have a way to use this little coat from Doppelganger. Kudos to my buddy, Nazeeya Yven, for tipping me off about adding prim flip flops to my mesh feet – it totally works! I love all my old prim flipflops sans feet I have to color-match. I’m not against system feet at all, but I’ll agree, it does look nicer, doesn’t it?

52 Weeks of Color – Dandelion

For the life of me I cannot remember
What made us think that we were wise and
We’d never compromise
For the life of me I cannot believe
We’d ever die for these sins
We were merely freshmen…
