Pose Fair Exclusive 1....Glory of Love

Hi everyone!

Wonderful news! I got accepted as a merchant at Pose Fair 2014! I can hardly believe it! It's been a tough 2 years for me but it paid off! I'm so grateful for all the support and encouragment I've received for my 3+ years in SL. Thank you from the depth of my heart! Without my friends, I am nothing.

So I'll be working on a few Pose Fair exclusives. They won't be available in my stores until May 3rd.

My first exclusive is called Glory of Love. It is inspired by that song by Peter Cetera, such a beautiful song! And yes, it was featured in Karate Kid II. It is a great song from the late 80s. It was nominated for an Academy Award and Golden Globe Award in 1986 and a Grammy Award in 1987. It did win an Ascap Award for Most Performed Songs from a Motion Picture and a BMI Film & TV Award for Most Performed Song from a Film.




It's such a passionate song. The lyrics are amazing. The melody is just wonderful, I love the piano parts in it especially. It's a mix of traditional and a 80s ballad feel.

It's about how glorious a love can be. It reminds me of the age of chivalry, a knight fighting for his lady's honor and pledging to love her forever.

I am a man who will fight for your honor
I'll be the hero you're dreaming of
We'll live forever 
Knowing together
That we did it all for the glory of love

You keep me standing tall
You help me through it all
I'm always strong when you're beside me
I have always needed you
I could never make it alone

I am the man who will fight for your honor
I'll be the hero 
You've been dreaming of
We'll live forever 
Knowing together that we did it all
For the glory of love

See you be brave and future plans

Hey everyone!

I'm back with a brand new pose, See you be brave. It is inspired by Sara Bareilles's Brave. It's a well written song that she penned and the way she sings it...just sublime. She's a brilliant artist. Her songs are full of heart and true feeling.

It is the kind of song that motivates you to be true and speak out.



I decided to wear this wonderful dress by Just Darling, Rosetta in red. It is mesh and what I like is that I didn't have to wear an alpha, only change my shape, breasts and torso muscles. The other color I liked was the blue, it looked like a midnight blue.

To me, this dress looks like a traditional dress that might be worn in the days when women couldn't vote, couldn't drive wagons (no cars back then), and they were just expected to act like ladies. In public, the men were the only ones who could engage in intelligent conversation while they were expected to have tea with their friends and gossip about everyone. Thankfully times have changed and we have come so far in terms of women's rights and women's social standing in the world, in most countries.

I am not a complete feminist, but I support a women's right to be heard....her right to choose how she wants to live. Women should be strong and brave in this modern world where women can live alone and do not have to marry to survive. I admire strong women who speak their mind and write from the heart and soul. This is the age where we can be brave and "let the words fall out."

The dress I am wearing, it's just beautiful. The top part is a corset and the bottom looks like silk brocade. The texture on the bottom is really clear and smooth. Red is a color that symbolizes passion, boldness, courage and other strong traits. I wanted to portray many of those traits in the pose and photo.

What Vic is wearing:
hair: EXILE Dream of Paradise Dark reds
dress: ::Just Darling:: Rosetta Gown Red
hands: mesh SLink relaxed hands

You can find my pose here.

Here is the song:



One of my future plans is getting ready for Pose Fair 2014! I'm very excited this year!

Also, I have decided to set up a small studio for my personal use. I might invite friends over or invite students. I have started to teach photography skills in SL. My focus is on the method and art of it, not the viewer controls. I'm surprised at how much I'm enjoying it. I look forward to preparing the slides and presenting it to others. I have met some great people too! I could get used to it, I feel great!

Have fun and enjoy the art!

Hold on to me, never ever let me go.......

Hi lovelies!

I just love that song by Michael Buble. He has to be one of my favorite singers of all time. He has a great personality too. You can just feel it just bubble off the screen and into your hearts...see what I did there? Haha. But those of you who are fans know what I mean. He's a funny guy and he likes to joke around with friends and fellow singers.

My latest couple pose is Hold on to me. Originally it was called Held captivated, but in keeping with the theme of naming poses after songs, I changed it pre-production of course.




The story goes that a raven-haired beauty found herself in the arms of a dashing highlander, held captive by his gaze and the heat of his body. From the moment they met, she just knew she wanted him to always hold on to her and never let her go.



This one was a challenging pose to create. The elbow had to rest on the chest. She is leaning in to him though reluctantly and her arm covers her breasts. I found it looked better with Lolas.

I really loved the hair texturing of the Lelutka GOGO hair. It is the nicest shine I've seen in awhile.

Her
hair: Lelutka GOGO
eyes: IKON

Him
hair: EXILE Dustin
eyes: Poetic Colors

You can find my item here on marketplace.

Have fun and enjoy the art!

Like a skyscraper and being strong

Hi everyone!

I've been listening to youtube a lot lately. I have loved the site for years. It keeps me going and it keeps me smiling and swaying to the beats. There's this song I keep listening to it's called "Like a skyscraper" sung by Demi Lovato. The song was released several years back. I know it's about how hurt Demi felt about the bullying she received. I too can relate to that. People can be so cruel how they jeer and degrade others with their words and shoddy treatment. The thing to remember is that they can say and do whatever they want to us, but that doesn't change who we are. We still have our sense of worth and our self respect.


Skies are crying, I am watching 
Catching teardrops in my hand 
Only silence, as it's ending, like we never had a chance. 
Do you have to make me feel like, there's nothing left of me? 

You can take everything I have 
You can break everything I am 
Like I'm made of glass 
Like I'm made of paper 
Go on and try to tear me down 
I will be rising from the ground 
Like a skyscraper, like a skyscraper 

As the smoke clears
I awaken and untangle you from me 
Would it make you feel better to watch me while I bleed 
All my windows, still are broken, but I'm standing on my feet 

And so I dedicate this pose to all those who have been through bullying and been humiliated by others in their life. You are not alone. We don't have to let it keep us down. We can rise again and become stronger. We are beautiful. We are smart. No one can change who or what we are.




Dress: ::Just Darling:: Catherine gown purple
Hair: Truth Teddy blacks

You'll see I've added the Just Darling texture to my site. I am very proud to display her lovely gowns.

Also, German Land Holdings has my logo at their rental office. Fiona, the marketing manager, invited me to be one of their advertising sponsors. I am honored by her invitation as well.

My pose can be found here.

Love and best to you all,

Vic

All the same to me and ::Just Darling::

Hi lovelies!

It's me again! I'm amazed that I'm back again so soon. All I can really say is that I'm so excited and brimming with excitement! I will tell you why in a minute or so.

I have created yet another single pose this week. This one is more elegant, refined even dainty. I named it All the same to me.

A woman is wearing a beautiful, elegant gown and she is alone in public. Maybe she doesn't care that she's a party of one. She can handle it, she's been alone all her life. Despite her hauteur, she desires company. By her gaze and how she moves, she seems to beckon a willing man to be by her side if only for a moment. The way she stands is just so sensual and appealing. She understands her effect on others.

And here is my pose in all its glory:


I have it here.


All the same to me is inspired by a song sung by Anya Marina.



All right, now on to my bit of news. In my latest post for Let it go, I posed in Fairytale Gown by ::Just Darling::, if you remember. Well, I realized I was missing the alpha layer for the bottom half so I sent Gabriella Karillion a notecard. Later that night she IM'd and sent me the alpha. And I was so happy and I showed her the Let it go blog post. She was quite impressed. So impressed that she will allow me to pose in her gowns with my poses and she'll promote me as well. Wow! You can imagine how thrilled I was and how thrilled I am at this moment. OMG! Her designs are fabulous. I first noticed her designs at FFL 2013. Her work is really good. If I'm not creating, you just might find me at her inworld store...

What Vic is wearing:

Dress: ::Just Darling:: Trixie Gown Black w/ Lola appliers
chest: Lolas
hair: Dura
necklace: ::Just Darling:: Trixie Necklace
earring: Phoenix Rising Tease (I forgot to remove it oops, just too happy)
mesh hands by Slink

Please come see the Trixie gown inworld! It comes in 7 colors: Black, purple, red, yellow, pink, gold, and blue.

Your limo is here.

Have fun and enjoy the art!

Let it go...keep moving forward in your life

Hi lovelies!

I hope you all are doing quite well. This week has been very busy and a bit chaotic. I meant to release a new pose set sooner. Well, life happens.

Well, I decided to release a single pose for now. I have a couple's set in the queue that I still need to test before uploading and packaging. 

This new pose, my first new single's pose of 2014, is about letting go of the negativity and pessism in one's life.

She is in the rain and just letting the rain flow over her as she feels her frustration flow out of her. She might be meditating or just taking a breath from her busy life.

Me at Dryland owned by Anita Dewitt

 I know how hard that is. Sometimes it seems like everywhere I turn is darkness and brick walls and cold stone. And I know how much depression hurts not only oneself but others. But there is always hope and recovery. We can choose to start over and begin anew. Life is about being giving chances over and over again and about taking risks and just....living as well as we possibly can!

I urge you to be patient with yourself and others. I can't remember how many times people have gotten upset with me and just walked away because it was the simplest thing in the world to do. I always wonder if they forgave me. Forgiveness is healing and it lightens your load a lot. I hope I never become a bitter, miserable person because I just don't want to forgive those who have mistreated me through the years.

As someone who has lived with low self-esteem for decades, I can say wholeheartedly that now I am just going to become strong and let it go!

Most of all, we need to forgive ourselves for past mistakes and move forward. None of us knows for sure what our future holds but we can decide whether to face it with head held high and lots of confidence or we can choose to hold our heads in shame and reluctantly shuffle forward. Change is coming; it's inevitable.

Let it go is also a song by Demi Lovato featured in the 2013 Disney movie, Frozen. I have not seen it yet but I just might watch it one of these days. 


So come on and let go of all the negativity inside of you and be free! I dare you!

What Vic is wearing:

hair: Lelutka New            
dress: Just Darling Fairytale Gown White 
eyes: Poetic Colors
rain effect: done in GIMP

Pose is here.

Have fun and enjoy the art!

So Tempted...aren't you tempted to dive into love?

Hi everyone!

As you can tell, my latest set is about temptation. And it concerns how we feel tempted in love. Should we let him/her into our lives and into our hearts? Or should we play it safe and keep him/her at a distance, as just a friend? This will always be a dilemma for us throughout our lives. Love and intimacy are what we all desire, right? But who do we trust and how can we trust? It sucks when someone betrays you and hurts you deeply. Or perhaps you have been hurt so many times in the past.

Some of you may be thinking that this sounds like it's from a mushy romance book and you might be right...but it is also a very true life story and fact too. Most people are terrified about taking a leap of faith and loving someone. It is a huge risk. I myself prefer to know someone for many months or a year before taking it to that romantic level. If we never take a chance, what will we gain though?


Be spontaneous, take a risk with your heart sometime! Just be sure to be safe and take the necessary precautions. The main thing is to know yourself and to know your limitations. With every risk, there are present and real dangers. So never dive in blind!

This pose set is about reluctant yet passionate love. The woman with those luscious lips is looking away from the handsome man and yet, she cannot take her hands off of him. The man has no intention of letting her get away, he has a hand placed firmly on her hip. His willpower keeps him from ravishing her because he wants a willing lover, though his need for her is so strong.  I tried to make it seem a little bit steamy. I like how the light makes their skin look golden and so shiny.

The pose is only available here!

One last thing, I redid my logo finally! While it is not a professional job at all, I hope that it is unique and not like everyone else's. No one likes to be caught being an imitator...unless of course you're one of those types who just takes others' ideas, never a good idea by the way. I tried to make it simple and I didn't use too many colors. Also, I want my poses to tell a story. Some of you know that I like to write, well I love it a lot actually. So I want to paint a scene with my poses, even if it's just a snippet of  a scene. The imagination is vast. What will you make of your life?

So have fun and enjoy the art!

Into the New Year...Tonight's the night

Hello everyone! I am back as I promised with a new pose set. Couple poses are still very much a challenge for me. Challenging oneself is good...it enables us to grow and improve on our weaknesses.

My latest is a romantic couple's pose. In part, it was inspired by a song by John Legend, Tonight (best you ever had). There is just something so sexy and romantic about it. I think the first time I heard the song was in that movie Think Like a Man, based on the book by Steve Harvey called Think Like a Man, Act Like a Lady. I recommend that you read the book before watching the movie. Also, there will be a sequel this year. Steve Harvey is a funny guy who really knows how to get people to listen to his advice. The guy is fantastic. He has a show called The Steve Harvey Show.

Anyway, sorry for going off on that tangent. My pose set is about a man and a woman who are very much in love. The man realizes that tonight is when he wants to show his woman how special she is to him. The woman is suddenly shy and very self-conscious. She loves him very much but is a bit scared about how strongly she feels about him.

For the photos...I had to do several, I had to censor a bit. I apologize if it looks terrible, I have never censored my work. I personally think it takes some of that hotness out of it, but I didn't want to have to feature this in the adult category on marketplace. It will be featured as moderate instead. My flickr will have the uncensored versions. The female avatar is almost completely nude except for tights and high heels. The male avatar is just wearing jeans and sneakers.





I am pleased to present my third couple pose set! I think the photos turned out pretty good. I hope you try it out! Now available at marketplace: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Tonights-the-night-boxed/5642338 .

Have fun and enjoy the art!
