Escape from Risk City

I just recently saw on Marketplace that Khush has a new prop/pose set out called Fun With Cuffs that I just HAD to have.  I didn’t know what I would do with it yet, but I wanted to make sure I had it when the idea started forming.

It didn’t take long.

I’m a fan of Snake Plissken, the hero of John Carpenter’s Escape From New York and Escape from L.A.  As I was exploring the art sim, Risk City, I noticed that there were elements I could work with to create my own version.

The set includes four poses and four versions of the handcuffs to be used with each pose, which are very well-created.  I’ll certainly have to try to find Khush’s store in-world.  And what better to wear?  Twisted & Spoiled had the perfect outfit with their No Angel design.

Will I make my escape?  Will I make it out of those cuffs?  Will I even want to?

I’m usually very critical when it comes to my own pictures and editing.  But sometimes, on rare occasions, when you’re putting together a look, setting the scene and doing post-processing, everything seems to fall into place effortlessly.

This week’s color was like a thunderbolt for me and I knew exactly how I wanted to style it.  What actually took me the longest, was finding the sim I wanted to use as a backdrop.  I loved the look as a whole and that’s why I listed what else I was wearing, though during editing I decided that cropping the picture was more effective in portraying the overall look I was going for.  By omitting my usual editing to the eyes, it came together exactly as planned for an indifferent, dead expression and gritty feel.

 

Music also helps me to get the mood right in a picture, so this week I’m going to share the playlist I used during editing:

“Hear Me Now” – Hollywood Undead
“Isolation” – Alter Bridge
“Not Strong Enough” – Apocalyptica ft. Brent Smith
“Lies of the Beautiful People” – Sixx AM
“Art of Dying” – Die Trying
“Last Man Standing” – Pop Evil
“Porn Star Dancing” – My Darkest Days w/ Ludacris, Chad Kroeger and Zakk Wylde
“The Animal” – Disturbed
“Say You’ll Haunt Me” – Stone Sour
“Fix Me” – 10 Years
“Country Song” – Seether
“Bad Company” – Five Finger Death Punch
“Diamond Eyes (Boom-Lay Boom-Lay Boom) – Shinedown


On to next week’s challenge, Eggplant.  I have many purple options, but none that exact shade.  Yay!  Shopping!
