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!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Banana Mania

Skin:  Laqroki;  Claudia2, Peach 02
Hair:  Exile;  Bronwyn, Hotstreak
Eyes:  Exodi;  Riven Eyes, Grasshopper
Lashes:  Laqroki;  Mascara 01 Black, Natural
Dress:  Hucci;  Rule the World, Sunshine
Shoes:  Mayden Couture;  Nicole, Fuxia

Mmm, Strawberry Banana.  One of my most favorite fruit combos.  Wearing a dress like this to hunt Easter eggs in though is probably not one of my better ideas.

 

This week’s look was inspired by that one aisle in the store that’s been taunting me for weeks now with those delicious morsels of pastel yumminess…Peeps.  Yellow, pink, purple (and now they even have blue and orange) bites of gooey marshmallow bunnies and chicks have been my Easter-season downfall for far too many years now.  My running inner conflict between “just one more” and knowing my hips will regret it is plain to see on my face as I take such joy in biting each of their delicious little heads off.

Its been well over twenty years since the last time I stayed up all night cramming for a big college exam, but that doesn’t mean I ever stop learning.  I’m a knowledge and trivia junkie, constantly ordering how-to or For Dummies books, researching things online or picking more knowledgeable friends’ brains.  I would have made an excellent professional student.

 

But even I need study breaks occasionally.  Not the kind where you just run to the kitchen for iced tea and a snack, but the kind where you have to do something completely off-the-wall because your mind is so numb.  I’m relieved that back in my college days everyone didn’t carry cameras in their cell phones to capture some of the moronic things my friends and I got up to during finals.

 

Back in SL, I’m hugging myself with happiness at finding this super-cute dress at Cool Beans.  After taking this picture, I went back and got it in another color as well.  AND LOOK!  I pried my toesies out of my Baby T’s and into some peep-toed, sling-back Maitreya shoes that have been gathering dust in my inventory.  Now I just need to do the same thing with my skins.
