Last night I put my newest jewelry release up in Shine, and I decided I’d take a stab at blogging my own new release for a change. Kavar usually ends up doing mine for me just like I usually do his release posts for him. It’s kind of handy that way because it just seems so much easier to talk about someone else’s work for some reason. To help me ease into this, I’m also going to highlight a couple of recent favorites from other designers along with my own new release.
Enchanted is a silver and pastel floral set based on an unique flower sculpt that I created and textured in ZBrush, and then I applied some pastel tints in Photoshop to get the 5 color options – blue, orange, pink, purple, and red – shown in the image below. The idea originated with a memory of some ceramic roses and lilies that my grandmother collected and kind of took on a life of its own.
OK, enough about me! Let’s move on to two of my favorite recent purchases – the Fluorite Tree Corset from Schadenfreude and the I’m Not Cute pose set from Lazy Places. I don’t think I’ve taken the corset off since I bought it. I’ve worn it with jeans, dressy trousers, leather pants, and a few skirts, and I just keep falling a little more in love with it. Purple and green together is one of my favorite color combinations, and this is a lovely deep shade of both colors. The swirled design of tree branches and roots is bold on some parts of the corset and subtle in others, lending a sort of shimmer to the cloth.
While SakuraDawn named this pose set “I’m Not Cute!”, it’s the equivalent of an adorable 3-year-old with her hands on her hips emphatically telling you “I’m not cute!” because these poses are cute no matter what they’re named. That’s to be expected though since Sakura herself is cute beyond words no matter how she might try to deny it. The poses at Lazy Places are among some of my favorites because they tend to be a bit whimsical while still very well made in that your body isn’t broken into a million pieces by them and because the majority of them fit my larger-than-average shape. I can’t begin to describe what a joy it is to be able to buy a whole set of poses at once rather than having to pick and choose the ones that fit. Anything that enables me to shop faster and more easily is a plus in my book!
Lazy Places recently moved to the new Katat0nik sim, so if you haven’t been there in a while, you really need to go check out the new store and take a look at all the new releases from poses to creative accessories like talking cupcakes that sit on your head. It’s a great site for photos too as Sakura has placed several of her poses around the shop, and if you’re a 7 Seas fishing fanatic, you have to spend some time there with your fishing rod. I really need to collect all of the lip piercings and Baitlyn, one day you shall be mine!
