That Periwinkle in Your Eyes

Once upon a time, there was this great guy, blogger, and DJ who spoke a few magical words.. “We should do a post together”.. weeks and weeks later, it finally happened! Periwinkle was the name of the much awaited color courtesy of Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge and I have to tell you, this has probably been the trickiest one for me to date! The handsome guy standing next to me, Bouncer, not so tricky to line up.. although his tale might be different considering how many times I made him get on and off… the poseball.. where was your mind?!? (It’s okay, I thought the same thing and smirked when I typed it out at first.) Hey.. I’m a glamazon, tweaking static poses comes with the territory.

After finding this delectable dress from Boudoir – I swear, I love those gorgeous frocks! I knew the look had to be romantic and whimsical. I kept it simple, the new windblown hair from Truth, these amazing heels from Pixel Mode (The skin tone matching card is AWESOME!!). Then came the tricky part.. finding a place to shoot. Well, I fell in love with the sim that Botanical is on, but no scripts, no building, etc. When I mentioned this to my dashing partner, he so graciously offered up his land and a whole mess of prims. I swear, the way to this girl’s heart is prims so I can get creative and make stuff! So I did! I made this absolutely beautiful and romantic garden in the sky, which became the location some 3,000 odd meters up in the air.  Of course, it did cost him.. practically all of the prims he had left, but in my defense he DID tell me to go crazy.. just sayin’.

After all was said and done, our little 52 Weeks Partnership turned out fantastic. The hard part was picking just one pic .. but this one characterized his charm the best, and more is posted on my Flickr – so make sure you take a peek!!

Wedding Whimsy

It’s insane. Those wedding gowns that literally cost over 5,000L. Considering all the other details, the location, the flowers, the hair, the bridesmaid dresses, etc. .. it is truly enough to drive a bride mad! Even worse if you’re on a shoestring budget, or at least want something.. let’s say.. reasonable. After working on Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color listing for this current week.. White… I found some super cute white dresses that made me think.. hmmmm.. I bet this would make a pretty ‘alternative’ wedding gown. So, I sat on it. I kept it, and I am now proud to present a few of my picks for my very own SL Wedding Whimsy … aka.. “Wedding Dresses” for 600L or Less!

I kept the hair, jewelry, and footwear (there is none!) simple. These gowns are perfect for that Spring/Summer Wedding and are all available on the Marketplace!

The basics:

Hair: lamb! 
Eyes: LAQ
Skin: LAQ ~ Elena [Nougat}
Cleaveage: LAQ ~ Cleavage enhancer v2 Tattoo layer [Nougat]
Jewelry: MANDALA

Dress 1:  Kyoot – Pretty White Dress $150L

At the lowest end of the price spectrum, this dress is wonderful. It comes with the cute headband, but could easily be switched out for a flower or more traditional veil.

 

Dress 2: salt. summer romance vintage dress $250L 

(*Note: The cute ‘sleeves’ are prim, so as long as your arms are down, you won’t look like you’re wearing garters.)

 

Dress 3: {mon tissu} Crossroads Maxi Dress in White $465L

(note: This dress comes with a flexi skirt option and an alpha layer if you go with the non flexible prim skirt that makes your feet go MIA. Shoes with feet might come in handy.. unless you really want to float on air. )

 

Dress 4:  Paper Couture Crossroads Gown $600L

 (*Note: This does have the whole ‘skirt’ thing going on.. so a little butt editing is necessary to make it look “normal.”)
