Can't remember to forget you...and Prism Designs

Hello there,

I am back with another pose. I'm finding that I'm creating faster. The most time consuming part besides putting together the look is setting up the shoot. I need to decide how I want to shoot. Then later I look for a font. I like the variety of fonts I can choose from.

My newest pose is Can't Remember To Forget is sung by Shakira and features Rihanna. It's an upbeat, soulful song. They sing well together. Both ladies are sexy and have distinctive voices that are instantly recognizable.

The song is about not remembering to let a man go. The woman is just so used to the man that he has become a part of her existence. She would do anything for him. You can feel how protective she is of him.

With this pose, I wanted to show longing and frustration as well as a bit of sexiness. Her hip is tilted to one side, as she leans on the post.

I keep forgetting I should let you go 
But when you look at me 
The only memory is us kissing in the moonlight 
Oh, oh, oooh, oh 
Oh, oh, oooh, oh 
I can't remember to forget you 

She wears:
sweater outfit complete with leg warmers and shoes: Prism Yesi by Journey in Blue Angel

hair: D!va Hair Daria Type A onyx

eyes: Poetic Colors Jade

Prism Designs is now at BOSL Boulevard. Welcome to Journey McLaglen! Her designs are sexy casual. I hope to post more of her designs. The textures and cut of her items are clear and precise. 

Courtyard is LOVE Blushcourt by Krystali Rabeni. 

My pose can be found here.

Have fun and enjoy the art!

Cinderella Beautiful and sad love

Hi everyone!

I hope you're all having a good week. It's nearly March and with any luck, winter will soon be over. This winter has been so harsh and cold.

This latest pose is a romantic, sad couple's pose. It's called Cinderella Beautiful and it's inspired by the Peter Cincotti song of the same name. The song tells the story of a man who is reminiscing about the beautiful lady who he never got to be with. They started out as friends and then they went their separate ways. It just wasn't meant to be.

I thought long and hard before I created my interpretation. The man is bent down on one knee and holds her hand. She lets him hold her hand, but she won't look at him. Maybe she still cares about him, but she just doesn't want to be with him.

Like April snow blowin around in Gramercy Park
The two of us were never meant to last
You left your traces and drove away like a circus in town
A three-ring show that comes and goes too fast
The best of friends have been divided by a kiss
And if we can't love again, I can always reminisce

Cinderella beautiful, this one is for you
We almost made our fairy tale come true
And happy ever after was unavailable
Now two years after midnight
I'm still thinking of those yesterdays
When I was prince charming
And you were Cinderella beautiful

What she wears:

hair: Truth Rowan
eyes: Poetic Colors Jade
dress: ::Just Darling:: Cassidy Sparkle ballgown in blue

What he wears:
hair: EXILE Hey Man Nice shot! blacks
eyes: Poetic Colors Dusk
suit: (epia) Pinstriped business suit BLUE from The Men's Department

For the setting, I used the LOVE-ROSEBLUSH COURT by Krystali Rabeni. I found it at marketplace.  The detail is very clear and it added that romantic element I needed. 

My pose can be found at marketplace:

I am still moving items over to CasperVend so my inworld store is unfinished. I hope to finish it soon.

Have fun and enjoy the art!

Desert Rose 2...sensuality

Hi lovelies!

I'm back again with a second desert pose, Desert Rose 2. I want to make a Desert fatpack. I know I haven't  really had any fatpacks. Doing a series is hard, in my opinion. I have so many ideas and they aren't all related to each other.

This time, I will try to focus. Sting's song is one of my favorites and I think it's a great stepping off point to start with. There are so many complex emotions in it and I want to try to get at some of those emotions.

In dreams, she teases and seduces him with her eyes, her clothes...her very essence. Her body undulates in her slow, sensual dance. She revels in her body and her ability to affect him so.

The Desert Rose 2 package includes the silk handkerchief that I'm holding in both hands. I made it myself using 2 prims. The texture is from Pixel Cats, I'm not sure if they are still around. I bought it maybe two years ago. Eventually, I want to build mesh props. I do not know how to build mesh yet, but I intend to learn. I know I am not very good at building, so I am taking small steps and learning as I go along. The handkerchief is modify and it is worn on the right forearm.

The outfit is the same except for the hair. Hair is Rowan by TRUTH. It is one of his newest hairs. I really love it.

My pose can be found here.

Have fun and enjoy the art!

Desert Rose and worth the wait

Hi everyone!

I am so proud to present a brand new pose. It is Desert Rose. The song that inspired this pose and the shoot was the song of the same title by Sting.

Since hearing this song over ten years ago, I have been mesmerized by it. The melody, the instruments, the beat....the just makes for a phenomenal song. Sting sang the song with Cheb Mami. It was in his album, Brand New Day. That album is one of my favorite albums of all time. The sound is just incredible.

The music video for the song is breathtaking and exotic. I tried my best to recreate the mood. The song is about dreaming of love and wanting it so much. It's filled with awe, frustration, desperation...and so many other deep emotions. The way Sting and Cheb sing, it really tugs at my heart and always will.

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

Since 2011, I have searched for desert locations in SL. The amount is limited. I know of one or two I like, but I wanted an exotic feel. And I wanted to get a bit of the horizon.

After going through SL inworld search and searching many times on the SL marketplace, I decided to use a desert texture. You're probably thinking, "Oh no, not a flat texture!" I was just so excited to finally make a pose based on this song. I added a sand effect in GIMP. I couldn't find any tutorials so I came up with an effect using one of the included brushes along with gaussian blur and a smudge brush. And, I am so pleased with the font I found.

If I do more desert shoots (I know I will), I will definitely buy some props. And actually, there are some really nice desert textures at marketplace.

Deciding on an outfit was difficult. I found a handful I liked as well as jewelry to go with the outfits. There are some wonderful designers out there. The outfit I chose is a Gorean silks set. While I don't support or disapprove of the lifestyle...people can live as they choose, I do like the cut and design of the silks, kirtles, and camisks. They are just so provocative and hot. The fabric textures are so well done. Thanks Marbella Provonost, keep on creating!

I also want to thanks Siddean Monroe. Her mesh feet are so easy to use and they are very finely shaped. I am confident that I matched the feet to my skin really well, maybe even better than when I wear mesh shoes. I will check later to see if my mesh hands are up to date as well.

What I'm wearing:

hair: =DeLa*= Boobs Mesh Scarlett Black 4
Gorean silks: ~Soedara~ Beaute Drapee White, includes wrist cuffs, circlet and anklets
belly piercing: ~Soedara~ Nubian Divinity Belly Piercing Simple {Gold}
feet: Slink mesh

My newest can be found here.

Have fun and enjoy the art!

A thousand years

Hi everyone!

This is my latest pose just released before Valentine'd day 2014! And it is my very first couple set ever dedicated to this special day.

To me, it's not just about celebrating love with a partner, it's about celebrating the love you have for yourself. A wise friend said to me one night, "If you don't love yourself, how can you expect anyone to love you?" He is so right. Those words really shook me to the core and I knew I needed to take care of myself, not just care a lot about what others think of me and what they expect from me.

The song that inspired the pose is by Sting. His vocals are so soulful and the lyrics in his songs are just so poignant.

The story behind this pose is that even years from now, a man will still look at his woman so tenderly. He is crouched on the floor and she is sitting with her back to him. You can see how close they sit and how their hands and arms are entwined. She looks up at him like she knows he wants to kiss her at that moment. The woman feels so safe and loved in his arms. Their love is a love that will last far longer than forever....a timeless love.

On her:
hair: D!va Rena Type A Black onyx
eyes: Poetic Colors Jaded eyes Jade
dress: ::Just Darling:: Cheslie in red

On him:
hair: EXILE Nice shot man! Blacks
eyes: Poetic Colors Jaded Eyes Dusk
shirt: ..::Giomen::.. V Neck Shirt black
pants: GiZZA Creations November group gift

My newest pose can be found here.

Happy Valentine's!

Bring me to life (wake me up inside)...

Hey everyone!

I hope you are all doing splendidly and keeping warm and safe, if you're in the USA. It has been such a harsh winter for us. I have never seen a winter of this scale in years. If you're in a warmer place, please send some sun and warmth to us. When it's really cold I sometimes say, "If it gets any colder , I'll become a vicsicle." Haha. That probably sounds corny but my family finds it amusing.

My newest pose is Bring me to life, the name is from a song...Evanescence's Bring me to life. I've always like that song. The vocals are amazing and really heart-wrenching and soulful. The rapping was done well and adds intensity and pain to the song, rather than take away from it. The song was brilliantly arranged and recorded. Even today, I get chills when I hear it.

To me the song is about feeling dead and numb inside. There is just so much pain inside and there doesn't seem to be a way to escape it.

I totally love the gothic font I used in my product image. Font hunting is now one of my favorite activities when I'm on my laptop. There are so many free ones out there and all are wonderfully made.

The sim is LEGION. This sim is a town called Calico. It looks deserted and I'm alone in the dark woods, by the water. It's a rundown town and the windlight was so dark I couldn't see where I was going. So I set windlight to midday to find a spot to shoot at. Below, I used a brighter windlight.

The textures and everything are really well done. I will definitely come back here for future shoots.

I'm showing off a new dress from ::Just Darling::, Rylie. It is the rare dress in the Gacha machine in the main store. I've already gotten 2 compliments about it. It really is classy and pretty.

What Vic is wearing:

hair: D!va Rena Type A
dress: ::Just Darling:: Rylie dress in Ombre
shoes: Essenz Buenos Aires in cream

You can find my pose at marketplace here.

Have fun and enjoy the art!

And Happy Valentine's day, if I don't update again before then.

Somebody to love...find me

Hey all!

I've been hard at work and I have a new single pose for you. I call it Somebody to Love. Valentine's day is coming up so I thought I'd do a love themed pose. Also, ::Just Darling:: has a few new Valentine dresses.

I am proud to present this new pose for Valentine's Day. I love how it turned out. Isn't it just adorable?

This pose is inspired in part by that world famous song by Queen. It is one of the best songs of all time. The way Freddie Mercury sang it, it was just so passionate and earnest. An outstanding rendition of the song was sung by Brittany Murphy in Happy Feet.

I wanted to honor their lives and give homage to a spectacular song that still captivates us to this day. It still calls out to us, deep down in our souls. May its legacy live on through the years ahead.

We all need someone to love. We all work hard. We all feel down on our luck at times. People try to get us down. There are always those that think we're crazy or stupid. But in the end, they cannot change who we are. We are who we are. And we just want somebody to love.

I'm wearing Tanya Red ruffle by ::Just Darling:: along with Cuore heels by N-core in red.  The hair is by D!va, it's Astralia. You can find it at Collabor88 this month.

My pose is available at marketplace and inworld.

Love and best wishes,
