The ramblings

First of all I want to apologize for the reposting. I uploaded the wrong picture and I was not sure if I would be able to fix it in a timely manner so I deleted both blog post and Flickr upload. But behold, a new picture, hopefully this time without ugly squares. Here’s to hoping!

You all know by now what a great blogger I am right? Talking about stuff barely or not at all visible in my picture. Well if that annoys you then stop reading and get to your shopping, otherwise, buckle up and enjoy the ride.

To confuse you a bit more, I’ll start with what is very visible in this picture and it is a little something that made me clap my hands actually with sheer joy. Yes I am ‘grown up’ like that and yes I do get excited about new ink like that.

Bolson has a brand new tattoo!! For me it was time for new ink and this one is as always spot on. I can harp on about it, but you best hop on over to TMD and as you know even if that event is not open yet, you can cam shop to your hearts content. It is why TMD is still amongst my all time favorite events. TMD opens the 5th of each month, but hop on over and grab that awesome ink or any of the other goodies that are being laid out for you.

Now let’s talk about the cup I am holding. Ain’t it a pretty little cup? It is part of a gacha release from [ Toiz ] for Shiny Shabby. The whole release is much bigger and has stacked cups as well (one of my favorites) and a kick ass skybox. I say kick ass as it comes in these delicious white tones and can you tell I am on roll with those?

Of course there is more but as always hop on over to the event and check or if you are lazy check here and you will see the gacha key with all the pretty stuff.

The light switch you see (when you squint that is) is part of Toro’s. D I S T O R T lightbox. The whole set you can see here (Toro’s Flickr).

So why are you only showing the switch if there is a whole product attached to it? Well as you might remember, I started out by saying what a bad blogger I am. And I’d like to take this opportunity to elaborate on that.

When I set out to make a picture I usually have a plan. Really I do. I start rezzing things and my little scene comes to together nicely and then I start styling my avi. So far so good. I am humming away because I get the chance to show this awesome stuff and most of all, I am being creative and having fun.

Then I find my angle and my light and take my picture and open up photoshop. Then the trouble starts. Because when I zoom in I often find that a close up is better and poof! there goes my scene with all the pretty stuff.

Someone asked me the other day if I did that because I am lazy and don’t want to write up long shopping lists or if I wasn’t liking the stuff. The answer to both questions is a heartfelt ‘no’. I have the good fortune that a few event organisers and designers give me a chance to blog for them. And I do so with gusto, reallife permitting. But I will always let the artistic value prevail. Of course that is in the eye of the beholder and in this case, my eye.

This is where I will leave you and stop yapping your ears off as you have some shopping to do and I have bags to pack.

Yes it is that time again, so if you think I am away and having a good time outside SL, well then you are right. See you soon!

Happy shopping.
