Take a bow...and a fedora

Hi lovelies,

March 8th is Women's Day, did you know that? A friend told me. I hope all you women felt especially valued that day.

Since Cinderella Beautiful, I've started to pay attention to epia. Verone has some great designs. I got his suit from The Men's Dept for Julio, my malt. He just released a fedora; it is mesh and its position can be edited through the Edit menu. You can also resize it by touching it for a menu. The menu even has a color change option. I knew I had to buy it. This hat is unisex too. I might get another one for Vic. :-)

When I see or think of a fedora I am reminded of men like Humphrey Bogart or Clark Gable, men who are polite and charming. They might tip their hat to a lady they walk past on the street.

This pose is for the men. I call it Take A Bow. It might fit for women too. There's just something so appealing when a man tips his hat and bows at the waist to a woman. A woman feels beautiful and respected.

In this day and age, everyone seems to always be in a hurry and men and women don't always acknowledge each other on the street. There are even times women are jostled in public and the man is too distracted to apologize or even nod at her. That did happen in the past but men seemed to be more polite. People smiled more.

The title is the same as Rihanna's song, Take a bow. The song is about a man saying sorry when he is not.

How about a round of applause
A standing ovation

But you put on quite a show
Really had me going.
Now it's time to go
curtain's finally closing.
That was quite a show,
very entertaining.
But it's over now (but it's over now)
Go on and take a bow.

In this song, the man is putting on a show, trying to fool the woman with all his smooth talk and grand gestures. He is handsome and charismatic. This is such an elegant male pose. And in the early years of Hollywood, men were always portrayed as being cavalier, dashing and very charming. Many people, myself included, have favorite actors from that era.

Coming up with the backdrop was difficult. I set up this photo shoot set in my studio. I needed to control the setting. I wanted to convey that jazzy, dignified stage mood like you see in classic movies from the 1940s and even earlier.  Those movies are just so classy and they sybolise Hollywood glamour and the civility of earlier days that is rare in magazines and entertainment these days. I wanted to combine a modern mood with this pose as well so the title is by a modern hit R&B Pop artist, Rihanna.

Rihanna is just so soulful and her voice has a unique quality to it that stands out from most other singers in the industry.

This photo setup is something I put together in my studio. The piano is from Musical Alchemy...really great detail and textures. It is a prim piano and not as low prim as most pianos out there, but still one of the best of its class. I would be interested to see a mesh piano line from Musical Alchemy.

Lorna shape for Genesis Lab Eva bento head!

Hi lovelies!

How are you? I hope you're enjoying your summer! I hope that you keep cool and make sure to drink lots of water during the day.

I'm back with a new bento shape. It's for the Genesis Lab Eva bento head. I made the Olivia shape for this head before, but hadn't had a chance to make another for this head until now.  She is Lorna!

This is the Vivien skin also from Genesis Lab in the latte shade. It's a gorgeous skin and I liked all the shades! It was difficult for me to choose just one. The hair is from DOUX, love how it frames the face slightly. This is such a soulful look.

I will post the links for this shape later. It is available in my mainstore in the shape vendor in the back of the store. Should be at marketplace in the next few days!


Have fun and enjoy life!

Veronique shape - New for June!

Hey lovelies!

I'm back for a new shape for the Lelutka Bianca mesh head! It's called Veronique!

She is elegant, glam, and so sexy! The dress is so gorgeous, Phoebe from Just Because. It shows the right amount of decolletage to be both elegant and sexy. All the colors are gorgeous but I chose green after much consideration. It was really hard to settle on the color! The texture looks so lush and you can almost feel the softness and the creases are so well done. The off shoulder sleeves are just divine.

The shape is available inworld and on MP.

Enjoy life!
