For Acha: Same Damn Thing

Acha has been an icon in our fashion world, and has done so with a warm heart and generous spirit.  She’s shared herself with us, without any boundaries between her physical and virtual self.  I will miss her unique and stunning sense of style, and her elegant writing, and just . . . seeing her around on the feeds. <3

For Acha: Same Damn Thing

Acha and I weren’t close friends, but she’s still played a major influence in my SLife.  Her blog has inspired me and introduced me to awesome new-to-me stores.  She encouraged me when I first started blogging.  She encouraged me when I first started creating.  She wrote copy for my store when I was first starting out, and her generous words inspired me to work harder and be better, to try and live up to her elegant descriptions.  By including me as a tiny part of her blog in various Not Me posts, she gave me a sense of being part of the greater community.  By featuring early Vanitas Vesture on her blog, she made me feel like I was “somebody” in my own small way.

So, in honor of Acha, here’s my response to the Same Damn Thing challenge.  (Acha’s original concept is here, and more info on the redux is here.) › Continue reading

Gypsy

I bought a new tarot deck last month, and have been trying to learn to read the cards.  It’s been an interesting process, working to learn the symbology of the imagery and internalize the fundamental message of each card.

I’ve always been fascinated by the visual imagery of tarot, and as I study the cards and their meanings, I get drawn into the visual possibilities — I want to design my own deck, and create tarot-based paintings and SL tableaux.  I want to make the creative process part of the learning process.

I’ve read through a couple books at this point, and have begun re-reading them, doing the learning exercises suggested this time around.  Today is exercise 1.1: What do I believe about Tarot? Am I “totally skeptical about using the tarot for anything but fun”, or am I “absolutely convinced that the tarot can give me specific, personal guidance?”

Flower Power?

Flower Power?

Some new things, some old things, and some sweet flower necklaces.  These necklaces are big, bold, elegant, and full of visual impact.  I love ‘em.

Freckleface: On Shading

Yay freckles!  Four more freckled faces to look at.  As always, we’re looking at the quality of the freckle — color, darkness, size, scatter pattern across the face, carryover onto the body.  Take a good look at these faces, and see how the freckles feel: Do they look natural?  Do they suit the skin for a cohesive look?  Do they have that special something that makes a freckled face feel like your own?

Freckles are mandatory for me, of course, but they’re not the only factor when looking at a skin.  Today’s selection lends itself nicely to a discussion on › Continue reading
