Posemaker Challenge – Long Awkward Pose

I couldn’t take  Achariya’s Posemaker Challenge and not mention Long Awkward Pose.  Besides having a totally awesome name, the poses are just totally rad.  Dove Swanson really rocks pose making.  One of my favorite things about LAP is how Dove includes two priorities in her packs to accomodate throwing them into an AO or snapshot taking which is a really nice touch.  I’ve actually built my current AO out of a combo of LAP poses so having the lower priority thrown in is very much appreciated.  And of course the poses.. from fairy to red carpet, there is so much awesome to choose from.  I decided to spotlight some poses from one LAP’s more current sets, Tongue in Cheeky.. which might very well be one of my new favorite sets. ^^

Concert Blues

It’s been hard for me to get back into the swing of things since the concert for some reason… I guess it was the build up and now I’m just kinda trying to settle down again. I feel like a kid whose summer is over and I have to go back to school. :S

Dove Swanson of Long Awkward Pose is just awesome. Her new set of poses “Spice” absolutely ooze coolness and they are just really badass to say the least. I’m really drawn to the effortless look of these poses… and I really love the body angles in this particular set. I’m very fond of poses that have attitude to them because avatars are really just blank slates. And I should also mention that Dove gives you what really amounts to two sets of poses here, one in a low priority so they work great in an AO and one with high priority which is perfect for picture takin’. That is just awesome of her to offer that. She rocks. <3

I’m one of those people that lusts after something for a very long time before I finally give in and buy them… today that was headphones from booN. These headphones are really little works of art and I would like a pair irl. Honestly, when are SL designers going to start making me stuff rl! :P And well, I have a thing for belts so I had to grab one while I was there as well. It was a bit of a struggle to tweak the fit and it’s still a little weird but it was worth it because it’s so cute. I have a love/hate relationship with belts… They really make any outfit with jeans imo but argh, I hate fussing with them to fit properly and the more awesome and intricate they are the more difficult fitting them becomes because you can’t just edit the belt part without moving every individual prim associated with it. But yeah, I keep buying them and editing them for hours. XD

I doubt I’ll ever release this skin… I just wanted to document, in skin form, the makeup I wore to the concert. :)

And yeah.. I always post too many pictures. :P

Cybergoth v. 1,056

I like to bust out the cybergoth look every once in a while since it’s a favorite of mine. What prompted me today was Cafe Society’s Flamingo Hunt gift from Long Awkward Pose! LAP has some of my absolute favorite poses in all of SL so I was super psyched and immediately went on the hunt and I was not disappointed! The poses are freakin’ awesome. Seriously, awesome. And they gave me the perfect opportunity to wear the amazing Sense hair group gift from AVZ. And I absolutely love this duster from Paradisis. It was one of the first purchases I made in Second Life and I still love it. And best of all, it’s only L$ 50 and it comes in 2 colors!! And yeah.. I’m kinda on a grungy brush kick with my pictures lately. :P

Kyoot Army

Ok, I jumped on the Kyoot Army sale bandwagon… so if you read the feeds, you probably don’t care about seeing this again lol. But I have to say, the outfits are gorgeous, beautifully textured, and how can you go wrong for L$ 100? In addition to The Last Mobstress, I also picked up Mourning Minnu Gown & Straight Jacket Surrealist. At any rate, hop on down, take a look and snatch up some beautiful goodies while they are priced unbelievably low.
