..::DARE::.. Editorial Fashion Poses

I want to start by thanking everybody SO much for using my poses and for the cheer and support I have received for them! It is a great feeling to see how they are used in amazing art shots and fashion posts. THANK YOU! BIG HUGS!

..::DARE::.. Editorial Fashion Pose Set

Here is my latest set of couture fashion poses. Fierce editorial fashion poses for those amazing stunning shoots that will blow your mind! Come on people, let's get snapping!

I am so glad and honored the amazing beauty Elisabeth Villiers from ou la la mode wanted to model for me. It's worth it to come to my store just to stare at her gorgeous face for a bit.;D

The full set has 13 poses plus 3 versions with moving torso and head which you can't buy as singles. So you get a lot more angle options!

Single pose is 50L.

Light My Tomoto!

Ever since my little Tweelie was I have really been inspired to style myselfs a lot more than usual, mostly because she allows me to wear stuff I normally wouldn’t (no there is no multiple personality warning signal going off). I actually have several wonderful looks ready, but ever since Izzy B. from PDA dropped poses on me and my search for the perfect in- world photo lighting started, I can never quite settle with how I want the outfits presented. It has nothing to do with me being particular, I promise!

This outfit though I just HAD to share now because it's such a precious find to me. Plus I'm getting there with the lighting. The pictures in this post have not been altered in any way except for the border shading. The clothes and my avi are untouched. I am looking for that perfect 3d feeling. Standing inside a box with heavy glow and light emitting from it's center seems to be the way to go, I think, in case you wondered. If anyone is interested in this glow box, just IM me in-world and I'll send it over.

Anyway on with the styling!

I saw a post by Beanie Canning on the Beanie Loves Japan blog, and made a quick mental note to go check out the store, since Beanie looked super cute in the dresses. Tomoto was instant love! After entering the store I had to tp friends over to support my shopping frenzy. I don’t even know how many times I clicked that buy button, but lindens were flying in every direction! There was utter chaos for a bit! (how wonderful) I think I might have bought the entire store. I might even have double purchased some items, but I don’t care because Tomo Wachter deserves every L. The dresses in the store are superb. The texturing is detailed, the flexi is beautifully flowy, the sculptie shapes are natural and well made and the designs are quirky and well executed. It's just lovely through and through, and all so cheap! There's lots of free goodies as well, hair and different tops. Yeah, it was shopping bliss an entire evening. Thank you Tomo! ;D

I was invited to a fun formal event and I wanted to go as quirky anti formal but still kind of formal enough in SL couture fun style, hoping I could pull it off somehow. I chose to wear the white lacy dream dress Jour Heron. Once I had the dress on I felt it needed a head piece. The dress comes with a hat, but I didn’t think it fit well with the hair from Tiny Bird. The chandelier tiara by genius hat maker Megg Demina of Chapeau Tres Mignon I own only because I saw it on Thalia Jie's flickr stream. She is one of the fiercest stylists in SL, imho. She never ceases to amaze me and a peek at her stream HERE is always inspiring.
So with a flowery chandelier on my head I wanted to be a bit serious. and nothing is more serious than a monocle. I don’t know how come I have this but when I searched monocle in inventory it was there.(magic inventory!) I couldn’t find it in the store at VintageWear but perhaps it will be available after the rebranding to Epoque is done.
The boots are a perfect contrast because they are tough and heavy, a good root for all that light flowy flexi lacy going on, on top.

All dressed up and ready to go, I tp to the event and nobody's there...fiddle fiddle with outfit looking around...still nobody's coming...umm..ok...wait and zoom around.....nice room..hmm…nobody's here...looking at invitation..time is invitation again...OH!! I was one day early! (silent silly moment) and total anti couture climax.

Oh well!

Memory Loss Is Good Sometimes.

Mens lookI shop too much! (Oh the curse!)
I bought the new shoes Ubu Drunks from Urban Bomb Unit when they were released and blogged by others, cause they are awesome. Forgot about them, even what they looked like appearantly, cause I thought I put those on, only to find out I had not even unpacked them! OMG, how silly! So what I'm wearing is their not latest but equally great Porn Star Hi-Tops.These shoes have multiple coloring and texturing options, so they go with any color outfit. I got the pants ages ago, totally forgot about them. Jacket is a recent purchase but never worn because of complete lack of inventory order. The hat I didn't even know I had! Each item amazing and together total casual coolness!

I modded the hat from AKEYO to match the shirt, that comes with the jacket from Ju Ju's Closet. The jacket has a non shirt version as well, and different sculptie collar and pocket options. I love it!

In RL I love checkered pants, well, I do so even more in SL! The colors, the textureing, the pattern the everything about these pants is LOVE LOVE LOVE! It seems I went nuts shopping in Meriken last time...and hmm..I think I need to go back and go nuts again! Yaay!

The pose. What can I say. Izzy, your the master of posture! If you haven't checked out pda(Penny Dreadful Arcade)'s poses, it's time you did. Go to Fashion Mode and check out his latest store location! There are other great shops there as well, it's just like a real mall!

Miriel, the sim is closing very soon. A veteran SL artist is closing shop, it's sad that such an enchanting place no longer can exist! It's the same with the sim Polly Jean, it's sad so sad. Specially Marly's shop will no longer be. So please make sure to go to these amazing shops and get everything you can before they disappear! Both sims are worth the visit just for the builds and nature alone!

I want to show the eyes from Miriel. If eyes are the window to the soul, I believe these are the soul of Miriel Enfield, how beautiful! There are so many more to choose from in her shop.
I didn't have any internet connection all day today, so this is what I came up with in Photoshop, yay for no connetion! None of the eyes have been altered from the in-world original picture.
The rest, hmm..just a tad.
