Welcome to my house.

Hey there, hi!

So this is my little slice of Second Life.

Why am I showing it?
Well It all started with this dress.
I had been trying so hard to win it in a gacha dress by offbeat over @ Kustom9 and just had 0 luck.
I reached out on Facebook as sometimes people get tings they don't want or need (Yes even rares *Gasp*)

Turns out my buddy Quiet got it and it just wasn't for her.
See, the dress has hands attached. OK, no problem, we've seen this from designers before. 
Well not only are hands attached, this dress has a whole torso that you have to try to match to your skin. 
Just makes it difficult for some as there is no skin tone changer with this dress. 
Luckily for me, it wasn't much of a problem. I LOVE IT! 

SO, Thank you Quiet. You saved me again πŸ€—

• Oh the photo, my  house! 
Ha, almost forgot what I was on about here.

So I tried my usual, plain background. It usually works okay - ish for me but this time I was feeling really meh about my photos. 

So I figured, I have some cute things in here, again, thanks to Quiet so why not TRY to take the photos in there.
Well after a few hours of adjustng my angles when my SL was in ultra settings and down to 6 fps I got some photos.!

So, yup. Here's my home. Please excuse my very ugly white bar  in the window. I wanted something to hang my pretty beads from and didn't feel like searching for something :)

Disturbed


 I know, I know you can barely see anything but the make up & face shape here. 
 I was just having fun with photos and doing credits is so ingrained in me that I couldn't help myself.

This photo is all wind lights. Think I used Avatar Optimal believe it or not. I messed around with my sliders in the Environment editor and yeah, this is the result.

For info on messing with environment etc check my first and most likely only video on it here -  https://www.flickr.com/photos/emberrandt/33209219320/in/dateposted/

My pain, your thrill.

Finally I made a photo I am happy with!

I saw this headpiece from Zibska for the Midsummer Enchantment Event and thought to myself, "Gosh, I could do something fun with this!"
And I did have fun! I spent almost my whole day playing with wind light & different angles finally coming up with this crazy photo.

I have had this [Aleutia] top in my inventory for quite some time now just waiting for the right time to use it. Same goes for this awesome hair by [NANI]!

I actually have this bulging at the seams folder titled ! COOL PHOTO STUFF!! Jam packed with all sorts of tidbits. 
Think I need to spend more time photographing items from there. It makes me very happy. 
Anyhoo, I am rambling.  Hope you've enjoyed.
Kisses, EmberπŸ’–

P.s. For those who've been looking at this for years and are wondering why I am not linking all things with hyperlinks anymore- Making my credits was taking me almost a whole day, between fiddling with photos and that I had no time for well, Me!
 I am linking any events that items are currently at as well as review copy stores. If you can't find the stores in Second Life search please feel free to contact me in world and I will TP you personally to the item πŸ’‹

Oh, I need that!

So a few days ago I saw this outfit on Face book & I.Had.To.Have.It!

Finally I saw it over @ Kustom9 in a Gacha & BOOM, first pull, I got the one I was after. 

It's made by Amitomo & I love, love,love how the sweater lifts up on one side to make it a little bit naughty, also how the sleeves come down to cover part of my hands. 
It's funny. I tried to make a photo of this for two days and was totally stumped. I liked none of them. 
Happens lots when I really love an item & want to show it off to you, my ideas just can't translate to the image. 
Hopefully my gushing will be enough to get you down there to check it out for yourself

P.s. If you happen to play the offbeat Gacha and by chance get that rare dress and didn't want it (HAHA) Remember your old pal Ember would ya? That machine hated me But I sure do love that dress.

Sweet & Sour


Flippin the bird to anyone who feels the need to belittle anyone in SL. 
Something happened to me the other day and to be honest I had forgotten the types of people you meet when you leave the safety of your platform.  
I was just starting to come out into the big wide virtual world again and boom, attacked.
If someone looks bad, incorrect or their appearance just offends you. DERENDER THEM!

That is all.

So white it is!

Hi Dolls. 
In a wee bit of a rush today but I just wanted to give you a looksie at Mudskin's newest skin applier for LeLutka. It came out today as part of Powder Pack's June release. All info below in the credits.

Also, this top!!!! I saw it on a hair designer's Ad and Had. To. Have. It!
Finally with the help of my buddy Quiet & new friend Angel I managed to track it down over @ the n21 event. It is made by {vicue} and I would have fat packed the lot but daymn they're expensive. So, white it is ♥.

Hope you are all doing well, enjoying the sunshine. I have been spending a lot of time outdoors lately. I log on, forget and wander off to my patio to read my book :D.

Cheers, Ember



Tasty
