Kirsten's Windlights 2014

I have given away some windlights that you can download the last two years for Christmas to all of Second Life. I currently have 8 windlights that you can download. Today I am adding three new ones that I have made over this year, bringing the total to 11 Kirsten windlights. I am putting them all together in one easy download. The picture above uses my Kirsten's Snow Day windlight.  I am also wearing Physique fitted mesh from Muka. My sweater is fitted to Physique at the current round of anyBody and my thigh high socks can be found there or in the main Muka store. My glittery shoes are new from Reign at anyBody.

 The other two new windlights are called Sweet Pink and Kirsten's Favorite Location Haze. Snow Day and Haze are close, but Snow Day is foggier and thicker and a little bit brighter white. These three windlights are not for studio shots. They were made for exploring SL! So get off your platform and take some pretty ethereal shots! If you do use my windlights, please let me know with a comment or plurk or something. Thanks!

Pictures taken using Snow Day: one, two, three, four, five, six.
Pictures taken using Location Haze: one, twothree.
Pictures taken using Sweet Pink: one, two, three, four.

ploom 12 days of Christmas; Hucci fitted for Physique

ploom started its third annual 12 days of Christmas event yesterday. Every day from now til Christmas there will be a special hair and pose that will be 50% off until December 31st. I am using the cute pose from Day 1 called Gifted in the above picture. I am wearing some Hucci items that are fitted for my Slink Physique, Aste Boot and Fallon Skirt, both in Midnight. Hucci has realeased quite a few clothing and shoes recently fitted for Physique which means I can wear mesh with my curvy shape. Right now there are some new release boots at Hucci called Maypearl Boots that are fitted for physique and a little more than 50% off as an introductory offer until Wednesday 12/17. 

Here is another picture of my Hucci boots and skirt. I bought the fatpack of this skirt when it was on sale for black friday. I am so glad that I did. I tried another depth of field picture too. I am not sure if I think that I am getting better or worse at these. I don't think that I have managed to find the sweet spot of blur yet and the distance of the background makes me constantly have to adjust settings to get the same blur. 

Hucci is also at the current round of uber with an amazing shiny satin floor length gown that is also fitted for Physique. Here is a video by the Huccu designer Eboni Khan showing how fitted mesh increases and decresases in size with the sliders:  .
My beautiful pearl and stone jewelry set is brand new by Cae at this month's round of Fit for a Princess.

Second's Angel

A very amazing thing happened last week. A second life designer, Violaine Villota owner of Fancy Fairy, was asked to use her wing designs in a real life Victoria's Secret Fashion show which aired on TV Tuesday December 9th. New World Notes blogged about this event before and after the show revealing Violaine's real life name as Angela Jarman. The fashion show was broken up into a few different sections and wings very similiar to Fancy Fairy wings were seen in the fairy section of the show. You can see the whole show here, and the fairy part starts at about 28:00. 

"I've been so excited to see the wings on famous supermodels and I'm so happy with how it all turned out in the photos."- Angela Jarman (Violaine Villota in SL)

I pretty much knew that I would need to recreate the fashion show and create my own fairy lingerie look as a way to commemorate this achievment of a second life fashion designer having her designs walk one of the most famous real life runways in the world. I also happened to own a fatpack of "Kira Scripted Fairy Wings from Fancy Fairy Wings & Things" which helped me create my look. When I watched the fashion show it was very easy to tell which wings were created by Angela because the beautiful, delicate designs have been in SL for quite some time.

Creating the set was fun. Hiram made the mesh trees and book and I painted the runway and backdrop. At the start of the fairy portion of the show, this is what the RL runway looked like (on left) and was our inspiration.  The actual real life runway had animated textures and lights that changed throughout the show. I did not want to go that intricate, but I think my static set turned out really cool for my static blog pictures. 

SL meets RL, and RL meets SL!

I wanted to find items similiar to this real life lingerie set above on the right. However, they just did not exist in SL and so I wore some soft pink favorites, my Maai freya lingerie and Luxuria corset. I of course paired this with my Fancy Fairy wings! The wing design I chose, Kira, was worn in the show by the model below:

Kirsten's Second Angel Look:
Lingerie: MAAI Freya lingerie * pink/ Teleport to Maai
Corset: {Luxuria} Rosa Underbust Corset  - *cherry blossom*
Attachments: Slink Hands, Feet, Physique
Wings: Fancy Fairy Kira Wings White Gold/ Get your own wings on Marketplace/ Or get RL wings, Here!
Hair: TRUTH HAIR Neria
Shoes: [Liv Glam] Boutique-Fall 2014 Lybra Boots @ Jewelry and Accessory Expo
Skin: Glam Affair - Amberly II - Jamaica 03 @ collabor88 December
Pose 1: Everglow Girls 629
Pose 2: LAP Gown 6
