Thank You For Being My Friend

A shopping day with a friend is the best therapy in the world, unfortunately, it seems Addy and I went a little overboard and as we loaded out packages on the subway car, there was so many we couldn’t possibly sit down. We grabbed, the pole and gave a show to the guy drinking coffee instead, I don’t think he was as amused as we were.

Lybra has this amazing new bodysuit with optional jacket available right now at FaMESHed and comes in 10 amazing colors. Grab the fatpack for even more customization and a total of 17 colors. I chose to go opposite of Adalynne with the color scheme but all the colors are stunning. This is made for Maitreya only.

Breathe is in PocketGacha with two fabulous types of shoes in this month’s amazing gacha set. What I love the most about Breathe is that you have the option of buying the fatpack without ever playing the gacha machine. These shoes are fit for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink and come with the fatpack HUD included.

I love Adoness, have I said that before? I’m kind of late to the blogging game for Cruella and she’s not as active as she used to be in Second Life, I messaged her when we set this shot up because I knew it would be perfect to complete my look. This hair comes with a system tattoo hairbase which doesn’t work with mesh but you can use it with any compatible hairbase or purchase a compatible hairbase from Adoness.

If I Can Dream

It is a brand new year, I stayed up so late last night with my friend I actually slept in for the first time in a very long time. I had a good NYE, spending time with my mom and daughter, playing Yahtzee and finally winning the final game of the night by a landslide. I finished off the night by ringing in the New Year with a very dear friend, playing greedy. I just want to wish everyone the best of 2018 and if I can dream, so can you.

When I saw Moda’s contribution for this rounds PocketGacha I just had to share it with everyone. In November she had created a male Elvis outfit and it was so popular the ladies wanted their own and she happily complied and offered this lovely jumpsuit. This set includes 10 commons, 3 rares and 3 ultra rares. They are fit for Maitreya, Hourglass, and Freya only and the mic common has 3 different animation options, although I used mine with a pose. I chose to showcase the ultra-rare which comes with the boots as well as the jumpsuit.

Adalynne posed with me but isn’t doing a blog, she chose the red and black Queen of Rock rare.

This fabulous hair is from one of the newest designers to allow me to blog for them. Again, it’s an older hair but I just LOVE the shaved sides that Adoness does with her hairs and I thought the fabulous blue/black color was great for my Elvis impersonation.

The decor is mostly from a store called House of Wax, I love the mesh people they create because it helps fill in a scene without bothering people to come stand in. I am not going to list them all here but check out the House of Wax to see more that they offer.

This fun wheel made for a perfect addition to my set and can be grabbed at Uber from Kraftwork right now. This beautiful decor piece spins on touch.

Too Much Time on My Hands

It’s creeping up to the new year, time to throw away the old and make way for the new. I’ve decided that isn’t only relevant in real life and it’s time to create a new year, new you in Second Life as well. I’ll start with creating a new style of photography and blogging. I won’t stop writing I enjoy that part far too much. It is my intention this year to improve my photography skills, learn new things to help me get those spots that I want so badly. It’s time for another growth of Danni’s Dream. I hope you will all join me on this journey and offer constructive criticism when needed in the comments.

I’ve decided to take some help and advice from my very dear friend Adalynne Romano, she’s bossy and demanding and usually absolutely right. She poked and prodded, suggested and demanded, and what you see here is the end result of that. I wanted to blog this lovely sweater and wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to do with it. I started searching through my blog groups to see what decor items were available and I found these amazing clocks from Plastik. Available right now at SaNaRae, which runs from 12/26 until 1/17, you can pick 5 individual packs of two clock colors or a fatpack that includes four special colors as well. I took my shot and wasn’t entirely happy with how little of the clock you could see, inspiration struck and I added some smaller clocks. These clocks are resizeable through the modify function to be able to fit them in your decor.

The perfect shot requires the perfect pose. It doesn’t matter how good you look if the pose doesn’t do it justice. Foxcity is by far one of my favorite pose creators in Second Life. I feel that Satomi does a fabulous job at bringing my avatar to life.

Now we get to the part where I have to really re-think my photography. As you may know, I tend to do a full shot then zoom in on my face to provide a closeup of my face. Sometimes the number of pictures I do is overwhelming, not only to my readers but to myself as well. It’s all about the angle and the zoom factor in Second Life.

Adoness very graciously accepted my application to become a blogger for her. I have used her hairs for YEARS, I love the funky styles that she produces and this hair, although older is still completely relevant. I love the curly, a-line style of this hair and how it frames my face so fantastically.

Winter Wonderland

 

I swore I was going to get this blog written today and I will. Sometimes I see items from designers and immediately the wheels start turning. Ideas float in my head aching to be brought to fruition. With this set of pictures today I had help from my good friend Adalynne Romano if you haven’t seen her blog before you really should check it out. She’s what I want to be when I grow up. Her decor blogging is just phenomenal. So when I was setting the scene for this post I asked for her help and what you see is the final product.

This scene was created by taking several amazing items from decor creators all over the grid. The trees, hill, and grass are all from the amazing The Little Branch. This funky tree, snow hill, and grass are all part of the brand new set from FaMESHed. This set also includes 2 other grass types, another hill, and a frozen deer. The big tree is animated and just looks absolutely gorgeous inworld.

The cute animals are from Half Deer and United InshCon. The Deer family comes with all three animals and are gacha, and the foxes are part of an old gacha that I was lucky enough to find on the MP. They all completed my scene so fantastically. The other trees pictured are also from The Little Branch available inworld and on the MP.

The outfit is several pieces that came together to create a great winter look. MOoH! has this adorable puffer coat with attached shirt available at The Frozen Fair. This jacket comes with a HUD that includes 6 colors, the shirt is black and is not color change. This jacket is fit for all three Belleza bodies, Ebody, Maitreya, both Slink bodies, Ocacin, TMP, and both Tonic bodies, as well as standard fitmesh sizes. I paired it with some older leggings from Blueberry and voila my look was created.

I completed my look with a brand new hair from Limerence and super cute boot from Empire. Both are available right now at Winter Trend. The hair comes with a hat that you can wear with the hair or separately or not at all. This is my first experience with Limerence and I’m impressed, I’ll be checking more of these hairs out in the future. The boots are made for all 3 Belleza, Maitreya, and both Slink bodies. They come with a full-color change HUD including 20 colors for the boots and straps and 22 colors for the socks as well as 20 colors for the sole and 3 metal colors. I just love Empire.

Part of my thought involved this pose. When I had thoughts swirling around my brain on how to make this picture come to life this pose was foremost in my thoughts. This is a couple pose and is bento, I feel bad asking people to collaborate with me and I didn’t feel like buying stuff for my alts since I am never on them anyway why would I want to spend more money on them? This pose is still fabulous for one person and you can grab it inworld and on the MP.

I really wish I had been able to get to blogging this head this weekend while it was still on sale, however real life comes first and taking care of my kids is the utmost importance to me. LAQ released Scarlet at a special price for this past weekend only, it is now full price of 5000L. It comes with the motion capture head, HUD, shape, three eye colors, 11 gestures, 3 voice animations, and an eyebrow shape.

It is absolutely adorable right out of the box, I didn’t modify the face at all for this post and will play with my shape later on. I had tried LAQ when bento first came out and I couldn’t bring myself to spend the Lindens wanted for the mesh heads. Now I am collecting quite a few heads so hearing that this head was on sale I knew I had to try it and review it. Omega is already built into this head, no need for additional HUDs either, so you can wear your favorite skins. I do wish there were more options for animations but overall I am very happy with this head.

Head *new*: LAQ – Scarlet MoCap

The Makeover Room is still going on until December 26 and trust me you do not want to miss out on the amazing creations from our designers. Kosmetik is there with a brand new set of eyes and Dulce Secrets will make your lips shine.

This necklace from Vinyl is super cute and a new play on bestie necklaces, again I don’t like asking people to help me, I feel it’s an imposition. I really need to get over that… Anywho, this necklace is available at Pay It Forward and each pack comes with two necklaces in each pack. The necklaces and HUDs are no copy and transferable to give one to your best friend. but the pinecone and tag is such a cute idea. I don’t know how she comes up with these.
