Seasons

It is an honour to be posing with Leah on her blog.  The fabulous ideas from Leah came about when we were chatting and talking about weathers and tempretures at where we lived in RL i.e. Leah in Uruguay (Southern hemisphere) and I’m in Canada (Northern hemisphere).  So our seasons are always opposite of each other. It makes a lot of sense to do this picture because that help explains why we see people layering themselves around the grid while others are going simple and light.

The beautiful picture was taken at the New York sim by Leah.  While the sim is colourful and summery at the moment, I love what Leah did with the winter side of it.  The contrast and the colours really reflect the mood of both seasons without much descriptions needed, and just FYI, we were literally standing side by side, next to the post, so you can imagine the rest are all results of Leah’s visualization and skills.

Just like Leah, it’s been quite a week for me too.  There are ups and downs but I am glad my week ended with a high note with the PurpleMoon “On this side of PurpleMoon” styling contest announcement and most part I am happy for Leah becoming an officially candidate for the Miss Virtual World 2013 pageant, representing her home country as Miss Uruguay.  Leah has came a long way and she has always worked hard.  Those who are close to her or have followed her works would know how talented she is but most importantly the efforts and time she has put into polishing her modeling skills.  It is definitely a well deserved achievement for her.

Check out Leah’s blog for her styling for this post, as well as her journey and experience in the MVW 2013 pageant.

Have a great week ahead everyone! <333

Finale

I would like to share my last three stylings for the CoC finale in this post, which will mark the end of the CoC competition for 2012.  Our last three challenges were extremely demanding because on top of the themes we were given, every finalist was also given a “brand” to style along.  A brand in this case means an image that we have to keep in mind in our styling for the given theme.  My brand was “bizzare”.

The styling we were asked to do on Saturday’s runway challenge together with an interview was “Futuristic Prints”.   For this theme, I styled with outfits from SyS, Bare Rose and Gasqhe and accessories from Finesmith and SyS.  For my “bizzare” brand I had a doll head behind of me, hence when I turned it looked like a second head.  Check my style card below.

I have expected to see similar outfits from other finalists in this challenge because there aren’t many designers that are specialize in making cyber / futuristic clothing so I have to make the outfits like my own by customizing them.  I removed the lace layers from the SyS skirt because they looked too girlie for this theme and I tinted the lights on the skirt to purple and green matching them with my Gasqhe outfit.  I did the same tinting with my SyS earrings.  For my Bare Rose outfit, I retextured the collar and cuffs too and now it is an unique piece that is completely own my me!

And in our finale, we had two styling challenges, Colour Blocking & Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2012.

I love colour blocking and I have done one in one of my posts earlier.  This time I used a big hair, elaborate glasses and a zipped lip to speak about bizzare.  I tied my accessories to the colour blocking theme too.  This is my most favourite style among all I did in the competition.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

On the contrary, the Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2012’s styling was the hardest for me because the theme is very specific.  Diane’s resort 2012 design are rather simple and relaxed and using of many neutral colours such as white, black and grey.  Though they are beautiful, it’s definitely not easy to make my styling unique, and bizzare.   So I have decided to use simple clothing and colours and use accessories to play up my bizzare brand.  I also added a moving butterfly on my back just to emphazise my brand and also my intention to add a surprise for the judges when I do my back pose.

I am grateful to have two sponsors in this styling.  Belle from Chop Zuey has again kindly sponsored me the Butterfly – Hare Chrysalis head dress and Julia Merosi from Je Suis has sent me her latest exclusive release at the culture shock the Coquet MESH BAG.  A million thank you to Belle and Julia.  Thank you for your supports and believing in me.

AFTER THOUGHTS

So some of you might wonder how the finale went.  I came in 5th place as the 4th runner up among 16 finalists.  It is not the results I am most happy with and for those who were at the finale and/or have followed us in the entire competition saw how I have performed and competed.  I have worked hard and gave my 101%.  Not doubt, the rest of the finalists too and I respect every one of their participations and styles.  All the finalists were great, friendly and fun to be with.

As for myself, I am proud of what I have accomplished in this competition that I outdid myself in every challenge and in every aspect.  I have managed to remain consistent and focused throughout the whole 5 weeks and I shown the world what I am capable off.  Nothing speak louder and clearer than that despite what the results say.

Again, I want to thank those that have supported me throughout this entire time.  My mentor and dear friend Leah McCullough that has been there for me for every ups and downs.  Thank you so so much Leah, and Debbie Jasper that went into the competition with me and we have grew so much closer in this competition, thanks for keeping me on the course and keeping me calm Deb! And all my sponsors i.e. Chop Zuey, NYU and Je Suis.  Also Nice, Sessie, Ashia, Bea, thank you for your encouragements and the vote of confident.

Last but not least those who have made an effort and a point to drop me a note or IMs to tell me you liked my styling and more.

You are all winners in my heart.  I Love You all!!  <333

I am definitely ready for bigger challenges that will come my way, so watch this space!

Spine, Cage & Crow

Spine, cage & crow.  What do they have to do with each other?  Take a look! 🙂

Vero Modero has recently released a series of Crow inspired clothing that to my opinion is not only mysterious and sexy but also “heart pumping”.

The Amisus set is my favourite among the Crow series.  It really doesn’t required a lot of styling because the clothes alone are already a head turner.  No pun intended. 😉

I paired the Amisus set with a sYs super Avant-garde and stylish hat, a pair of Diktator’s latest Obey Spine Booties and a Finesmith Shukran Ring, that’s all I need to do to further elevate my looks for today.

The second outfit I am showcasing from the Crow series is the The Crow Antakya Cage set.  This is a fun set because I am wearing my literally pumping heart on the pelvis, yet! I am a happy and contended crow that I want to dance.

The crow-in-the-nest hat and the feather essence on the shoulder are also spectacular and in my opinion a little more textures on the cage skirt will bring this outfit from perfect to extraordinary.

Poncho

I’ve got this Poncho from Vita’s for quite sometime now and finally have the chance to put together a style for it.  I pair the Poncho with a Retro top from Shiki Design that’s part of a dress for the Vintage Fair, and an old belt from my inventory (so I guess it is Vintage to SL’s standard :P) and a nice pair of royal blue pants from .SHI.

 The hat is a lovely find from Purplemoon at the Vintage Fair too and cute accessories from The Sea Hole at the Collabor88.  The lags are all worth it! 😛

This is my first attempt taking picture with the Firestorm viewer and I am loving the effect.  I did some cleaning up and sharpening using PS and voila!  My first edited photo. 😉
