Strike a pose challenge

This weeks meme is about the "favorite" pose and posemakers and the first thing that came to mind were RC-Cluster poses. 
I m not sure if you guys remember the huge store that was selling humerous and unusual items between 2007 and 2011 created by Redd Columbia. 
Today the items are still available in world but in a much smaller shop called "Cluster Classics" located in the floorplan sim.  

 prop and animation: RC-Cluster Hanky
You can get a variety of the silliest probs-stuff from the "Zombie-AO" to the "Popstar Singing microphone" 
or "the bag on your head for uglies".
I made a few pictures of the items in the shop so you get an idea what to expect but you can also 
check the website with some more information.
As the shop used to be huge the items available in world today are rotating 
monthly. Requests can be made as well.

facial expression: pose anywhere hud (free @ marketplace)

btw: no matter how bad you feel, never forget keep your head up and strike a dramatic pose
to reactivate your inner queen  ;)

Of course there are so many wonderful posemakers in SL and many of them have been listed by 
fellow bloggers participating in this weeks meme.  
So check Strawberries comments for several links. 

Have a great weekend,

Sitting in the sun

Sitting in the sun is something I enjoy doing during my vacation which is where I am at the moment.
Just the smell of the sea, the sun on my skin and all the sounds around me that are so diffrent
to the sounds at home. - no cars passing by, no phone ringing, no television, no radio.
Just the pure sounds of nature. Like seagulls, water waves against the shore 
and the laughter of kids playing with their dads.
These are moments at the sea I d like to last and then 
I ask myself why not just pack my stuff and simply move here?
Like forever?

The pictures I took at the "It all starts with a smile" sim are of course no beach pictures. hihi. 
But I think you re getting the idea anyway :)

The dress im wearing is the blue retro dress. It s available in a few more colours at Gawk,
a lovely shop for casual clothes. I especially 
loved the mini-dresses there.

Happy easter, everyone :)

What inspires you?

I once asked some of my fellow bloggers and photographers what inspires them. 
"Music" was a frequent answer. Another answer was "other people" or "movies".
I can relate to all those answers as to a certain degree these things inspire
me as well. 
But when I analyse my working process I realize that I start with the things before my eyes. 
Sometimes I start with a dress that I find fascinating. Sometimes I start with a pose. What follows then is mainly trial and error.
It s not that I make a picture - it s more like I discover it.

Ella elle l´a

If I would name my clothes and shoes in RL as well 

I would probably think "Ella " is good name for my new heels. Thats because 
I like to sing under the shower. Coming to think of it, I also sing in the car. And at home. Hm I want to be honest to you: I sing all the time. 
Singing about Ella would make sense - those are lovely heels.
Lately fri.day has been releasing a lot of footwear, all slink feet add-ons. 
These add-ons are in my view the most practical invention since we have mesh in SL.

Trempe Mode - 1st issue / Spring 2014

At the beginning of this year I unexpectedly I received an invitation to join the young team of 
I felt very honored to be concidered and that appearantly my work on Hills n Chills and 
on my Flickr had made an lasting impression. I most certainly never expected this kind of recognition. 

I remember I saw Strawberry come online that very moment so I IMed her saying something like: "I m paniking here - help". 
And of course she did say the right thing that helped me decide to give it a try. 
And I m glad I did :)
The results can be found in the first issue of Trempe Mode Magazine. Together with an 
impressive line of talented photographers and models, a wonderful first spring issue has been created and I m very proud to be a part of this.
 Make sure to be checking out the lovely Trempe Blog as well.

All in all I had two photoshootings with such wonderful models like Vikeejeah Xevion, Xandrah Scavio 
and Louise Roundel which was a lot of fun and very entertaining - I hope for
both sides!
The pictures you can see in this post didnt make it into the magazine for obvious reasons: 
Picture 1: One of the models (Louise) is totally missing - I think she was  picking up her clutch....
Not a good picture to go into the magazine... :P

Picture 2: one of the lovely ladies (I think it s Louise again) is obviously picking her nose.... - bad picture.
I couldn t let the world see that.
Picture 3: I can t recall what suddenly got them upset, made Xandrah raise her hand 
and smack Louise but I instinctively kept the camera running ...

Later on I had to promise not to tell anyone about this and incident and
that Louise (quite understandably) had felt like kicking back...

But don t worry please - we did sort things out and lawers have come to an acceptable settlement. 
I know. I can literally hear you say..."Geeez...the world of fashion...!"
And you re right! - it s fascinating. It s fun, it s glamerous, it keeps
us on our toes.
So make sure to keep looking out for more to come :P

Hills :)

p.s.: of course there never was any nose picking, hitting or kicking on the set! 
I only made this story up. 
So far I ve had enormous fun and it was a pleasure meeting those lovely ladies and professional models. 
Thank you all :)

A house on the hill

I recently moved homes.
Homes. A very important SL topic, isnt it. Do you have one? If not - how do you... I mean... where do you go to change 
your clothes or to check your make-up, comb your hair or simply rezz a box?
I rememer in my early days (and I think I told this story more than one time on this blog) I didnt have a home 
and when I needed to change chlothes or edit my appearance I looked around for a lake and went underwater. Hihi. It felt very private. 
Until one day somebody got into my IMs saying: "Helloooo!:)))" Zooming out I saw someone standing next to me - lol. 
I said:"Dont say you re changing clothes as well..." - "Don t laugh, but I actually was going to." 

 I recall one other occasion when I finally did have a home I came online and found I wasn t alone in my sim. 
Someone appearantly had rezzed a skybox in order to meet with a "friend". You know how it is, 
when you open that little sim map and see two green tiny dots on it, standing so close together, it s clear 
that they re not only just shaking hands. 
I think I got a giggle as a reply to my  question if they knew a good place where I can purchase a neat security orb system. 

Anyway I believe almost everybody has one or two stories like that to tell and it s actually very funny 
when things like this happen. 
I am lucky I guess that I have never encountered negative experiences in that matter 
or had my sim messed up or had to deal with unpleasant visitors.

The reason I m writing about homes is of course The Home Show that is going on 
at the moment and I grabbed a few things there. 
The Toronto-Wire chair is from Bazar and has some really nice poses 
I hadn t seen before so it was worth packing in. 

If you have time to drop over, you ll find stores like Mudhoney, Johadez, 
Half-Deer, The Loft and others that are worth checking out. 
Really lovely stuff to be seen. 


Have fun discovering :)
