Identity Crisis

30 Aug

Everyday, there is a war in me. See, by descent I am Puerto Rican, quick history lesson for those unfamiliar with our background.. this makes me Indian, Afro-Caribbean, and Spaniard (yes I said Spaniard not ish.) We are by every sense of the word, a mixed nation. I have aunts and cousins with gorgeous dark chocolate skin, tight screwed curls and hazel eyes. I myself am light, with “good” naturally curly hair and warm brown, bedroom eyes. My sons are a happy in between and favor their grandfather’s red toned complexion. Being in touch with my ethnicity, there’s a war in me everyday. How will I choose to represent myself without showing any particular preference? My happy medium? Change multiple times throughout the day. 🙂

When I first discovered blogs, the very first one I came across was Tesh over at slexyfashionista. To say I was inspired to learn photoshop instead of paintshop pro, what I was using to make simple edits at the time, would be an understatement. Seriously if you’ve never seen this girl’s art take a look, she is amazing. Over time I discovered Shelby over at strawberrykissez and I clicked a bit more with her style clothing wise and loved the crisp clear photos. Completely different style from Tesh but the two remain among my favorite places to visit. The attitude in each of Shelby’s outfits sang to the drama whore in me (lol trust me, i mean no offense by this) whereas the whimsical girly offering from slexy put me in touch with my decidedly feminine side despite being a tomboy for most of my life. Well, one thing led to another and I eventually started this, a project I’d drug my feet on because I didn’t feel my photos were quite up to par with the work that these two girls and many many others tenured in the blogging world were putting out. Strawberry Singh is definitely the go to for a gorgeously classy blog and some amazing helpful tips for noobs like me! There are so many I can name here, and I don’t mean to snub anyone not mentioned, anyone you find linked in my blogroll is someone who’s creativity positively makes me drool. So I’ll get off my soapbox now and present my look of the day, along with my photoshop flexing of what this young grasshoppa has learned!

Queen of the End

25 Aug

Or of the “rear” depending on which of my friends you’e talking to.
For this shoot, I discovered this gorgeous garden on koinup. Check it out inworld here: http://www.koinup.com/sim/Worlds%20End%20Garden/

As seen here, World’s End is a visual delight. You can see the designers of this simscape truly put thought into detail and the product was a gorgeous otherworldly ocean garden. 

The outfit pictured here, aptly named “My Royal Bitch” by Milk, fit the theme nicely to what I had in mind. Queen of the End of the World baby! Now if only I had some subjects…

Classy Moo

23 Aug

My go to for elegant, classy looking sexy items I must say are corsets. Be it real life or secondlife, I just love the dramatic accentuation of the natural curve of the female body. One of my favorite items for this in sl is made by a good friend of mine, Cedes Styles (muh cuntcake.) As shown below, this is just another example of her soft, sensual style.

Milk does The Body Good

17 Aug

Aside from the outfits featured, I try to use blogging as an opportunity to improve my photoshop skills. As my style develops I can’t help but notice the art of those around me. One photographer I have great respect for as an artist in sl is Kattington. Not only is she the designer behind Milk, she was first known to me for her prowess as an sl artist. This afternoon I had the chance to sit in with her on one of the photoshop classes she offers and picked up some new ideas to compliment my own technique. Below is my attempt at purely her style (still a long way to go for me lol).

Milk & Cyanide

15 Aug

Hold the sugar I’m already sweet. 🙂

Image

Featuring Mused Milk Made Boobs. These are my absolute favorite breasts in SL. Not only do I love their shape, but the game built into them (yes there is a milk game) as well as the community itself, both staff and other users, make these at the very top of my list of prim boobs anyone should consider investing in. 

Outfit:

top – *Milk* Sneek Peek Tee Pink Leo

pants – **S&C** Cargo Jean Shorts

cuffs – vixen leather

feet – slink mesh feet
