Pose Fair 2012 - It is Almost Here

Sunday the 15th of April at 12 pm the two Pose Fair sims—Pose Fair South and Pose Fair North—will be opening their doors. I have been enjoying the blogger preview for the last two days and there is a wealth of great poses and props for you to try out.

As a little teaser, lets start with a thoughtful, moody prop from Faery Sola, perfect for those who love a bit of storytelling in their photos.

Not a White Wedding

Time to get married in Second Life, but not in the mood for white? Or perhaps you just want something a little more unique? Then head over to Nomine and check out the Persephone Gown, first in a series of limited edition wedding gowns with a twist and lots of options, including some very sexy lingerie.

Of course, these also make great gowns for other purposes too.

Green is the new Gray

The last weeks have been crazy, but I finally managed to squeeze in some photography today to cover some new releases, an on-going event and an upcoming event. Phew.

The on-going event is Wear Gray for a Day which benefits the American Brain Tumor Association. I am not exactly wearing gray, but I am wearing an eyeshadow from elymode that’s one of the donation items for the fair. The capris with mesh attachments are also from elymode and are available in two special colours for the event.

The upcoming event that I want to make note of is Pose Fair 2012 which will run from Sunday April 15th to April 30th and showcase 120 vendors across two sims. Lately, I’ve been playing a lot with furniture with built-in poses and animations, such as these chairs from our patisserie by Alchemy Immortalis.

Gothic Steampunk?

Munchflower Zaius of Nomine has another large, themed release out. This time, its all about Steampunk and she’s made some really nifty outfits—including some for the boys. I selected a pair to show for this post, one suit and one dress. The collection also includes hairs, hats and goggles, for that full Steampunk look.

This post also features another awesome new mesh hair from Wasabi Pills, mesh boots from lassitude & ennui and mesh furniture/props from Rustica and a new brand, the Muses, from Nephilaine Protagonist. Poses used are from Exposeur.

A Perfect Fit

My clothing shopping is a bit more limited these days, in part due to mesh. Fortunately, there’s no need to worry about the fit with the latest release from Zaara, a gorgeous and romantic set of lacey lingerie which will flatter your figure and show off your curves. Zaara’s attention to details is superb, as always, and the texturing at the very top of what SL has to offer. The way it combines class and sex appeal is also spot on.

Deirdre of the Sorrows

Alchemy Immortalis has done it again. That is, released a must-have jewellery collection. It is called “Deirdre of the Sorrows” and it is inspired by legendary Irish lovers, Deirdre and Naoise. The center-piece is a stunning, unisex ring but you can pick up a wide array of complimentary pieces as well.

Of course I had to shoot these pieces on their lovely Empress and Hierophant sim. I also needed a fabulous new red hair to go with the jewellery, which ended up being Truth’s new mesh release, Parisa.

Fashion for Life: Summery

With the Zarah necklace from Bliensen + MaiTai and the Bindi top from Sn@tch, both from Fashion for Life, the end result is a bit of a summery, bohemian look.

Fashion for Life: Innocent?

For my second Fashion for Life-post, I’ve paired some stunning new jewellery from Earthstones with a sexy silk from Solange.

Fashion for Life: Chained

Fashion for Life is back again, for the 6th year running. From March 10th to March 20th you can shop until you drop on NINE sims full of fabulous fashion. Best of all, you can contribute to the SL Relay for Life which collects money for the American Cancer Society.

I am going to start off with a focus on jewelry, because every gorgeous outfit needs that perfect finishing touch. Of course, in my first set of photos, the lovely hip chain in unrigged mesh from Maxi Gossamer is left to accessorize just the lovely, brand-new Tasha skin from Adam n Eve.

Preservation

The second round of FLUX has started and the theme for this month is taxidermy. This has sparked some distinctly unusual and quirky creations that could inspire some very neat photography as well as some very fun, wearable items such as this mesh skirt from elymode and the jewellery set from Schadenfreude. I am also wearing a new mesh hair from Wasabi Pills for the March Mesh Madness event.

Bath Time

I have already shown several shots from the Ka’u Beach Skybox from Trompe Loeil for the Festival of Sin, but I’ve still got locations left to showcase. This time, I’m in the bath. I’ve also snuck in a lovely new couple pose from oOo Studios in the second photo and I am wearing the brand-new Yumi skin from Adam n Eve.

Money, Money, Money

The Festival of Sin is still going strong. If Lust and Wrath aren’t your favourite sins, how about Greed? LAP has several great pose & prop sets to express a love for money with. Of course, a little Lust on the side is necessary, here in the form of the sexy Lussuria sets from elymode.

March Mesh Madness

Using mesh yet? If so, you’ll definitely want to pay a visit to the first all mesh event, the March Mesh Madness which opens on March 1st. If you’re not yet a mesh user, this is a great opportunity to give a mesh viewer a trial and have a look at what can be accomplished with mesh.

Rough and Tumble

Another post today? Indeed, we’re trying to make up for the lethargy following our visit to London over the weekend. For this post, how about a combination of Wrath and Lust from the Festival of Sin? It certainly doesn’t hurt (well, maybe a little) when one leads to the other…

Wrathful and Gloomy

For the Festival of Sin, Tableau Vivant has released a set of tableaus depicting different sins. They are wonderful, mood-filled pieces that can be used either with the included poses or as the backdrop for any pose you might want to use. I decided to try both approaches for these photos.
