Tell Me You Love Me

Sometimes stuff just comes together, other times you build a scene and hate it or the items don’t fit in the picture so you have to move things around and monkey with it until it’s perfect. The life of a photographer/blogger can be a real pain but in the end, when you get the perfect shot and just smile knowing you’ve done a great job, then you can pat yourself on the back and move on with your day.

I love Dead Dollz, I have for a very long time. When I saw this lovely sleeveless sweater dress and matching gloves at FaMESHed I knew I wanted it and that I was going to include it in a blog. At the time I didn’t quite know how I was going to set it up but then Nantra sent out her poses for The Liaison Collaborative and the vision was born. I had played the Minimal Sights gacha for another scene in that set but when I was building the scene for this blog I remembered I had this one and it was the perfect location for my setting.

Beautiful Girls

On9 officially opens today and with it some amazing items from designers all across the grid. I’m so honored to be officially be blogging for this event, I have applied every time since I started blogging 3 years ago. To say I was speechless is an understatement.

I took a few pieces from different designers at On9 to create this look. The flowers, hair, necklace, and outfit are all available starting today. If you haven’t been to On9 before, or aren’t sure how it works let me tell you. Designers put their items out for sale, then they pick one of the items and mark it down at least 20%, it is then up to you to find the reduced items. It’s a pretty awesome event.

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.

This sweater is from Lybra and is available in 11 individual colors or a fatpack with 17 colors. It is fit for Maitreya only.

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.

The 7 Deadly Skins Advent is still happening and today I chose to share with you the skin from day 28. This pack comes with a mesh skin pack with 8 skin tones for women as well as a skin pack and shape for men. It is 1000L to join the 7 Deadly Skin’s group for the duration of this event.

Trying to break into decor blogging is not easy, most decor creators want to see a good amount of decor only blogs to give you a chance to officially blog for them and that is fine, I can completely understand. I have been a fashion blogger for so long it is odd for me to not include myself in a picture, but I did it and today’s blog is solely focused on decor. Just like a real home, I pulled some pieces from different designers across the grid to create what I hope is an inviting home. I’ll let you be the judge of whether I accomplished my goal or not.

I went to Scarlet Creative and being on a limited budget decided to check out her outlet area. I was pleasantly surprised at the lovely builds available at the outlet and the astonishing price. I picked up this lovely home for only 188L. It is unfurnished and comes with a rez box ready to build. The most fabulous thing about this stunning build is that it is only 57 LI and I’m going to take you on a little tour.

This is a skybox build so technically there is not an entryway, however, I think of it as one. I created a cozy little nook to have coffee or read a book and I had some help from two amazing designers that I officially blog for. The gorgeous mirror and wall art comes with color change HUDs. The mirrors are available in 5 individual packs or a fatpack. There is also a special Yule version for Christmas. The gorgeous leaf wall art comes in two packs or a fatpack.

Step around the corner and you’ll find a neat little nook kitchen, this is perfect for your bachelor pad, to have a friend over or simply enjoy the view out the window. I included a few things from KraftWork to complete my kitchen set. This fridge was created as a group gift for the month of September and is still available to group members. Join the group for 25L and pick up this and so many other gifts available in the store. The nook contains poses and the awesome toaster radio is part of a gacha set.

When you enter the living room, the funky mismatched furniture and decor will catch your eye. I love colonial furniture because you can match it with anything. I chose a funky tapestry and woven throw rug to complete my look.

Head on upstairs with me to the area I lovingly call my “wreck room”. Honestly, this area is just a fun area to sit and reflect, read, write, whatever it is that completes you. I chose this gorgeous decor set from Goose for this blog, I have used them before and I had to go in an update my pictures but that is the beauty of this set, you can change the pictures to your heart’s content.

 Last but most certainly not least is the bedroom area, step across from the wreck room into this open floor plan bedroom. I found this fabulous bed from KraftWork and built around it with some awesome decor from Apple Fall. The bed comes with built-in poses and is available in an adult or PG version. It comes with a texture change option to change the picture on the back headboard and the coolest part is it folds up into itself to create what looks like a row of lockers. The other decor is from an older Apple Fall gacha but it completes the set so well.

Whatever It Takes

It doesn’t happen often but when it does it leaves me with a conundrum. I have two blog posts to share at the same time and it was really hard to decide which one to do first, so I followed the simple rule of FIFO: First In, First Out. I have a more artistic peace to share with you today, an action shot so there is a bit of editing, mostly the snow. I hope you enjoy this post, please feel free to leave me comments.

When I first saw this fabulous outfit from Riot I started thinking how I could share it, it’s winter time and Christmas and this outfit didn’t exactly scream Yuletide to me. I love it though and so I really wanted to share it. What else happened at Christmas time I wondered and then I thought of Die Hard. Yeah, not your typical Christmas movie but there it is. I used the scene I had created for Winter Wonderland and credits for the decor can be found on that blog. With Die Hard in mind, I set back to The Arcade to grab one of these amazing snowmobiles from Consignment.

The Riot gacha includes 30 items in total, 6 rares and include both male and female sizes. You can play for Maitreya, Belleza Freya and Jake, Slink Physique, Hourglass and Male, and Signature Gianni. How many times do you get that option?

The Consignment gacha includes 15 commons and 2 rares to play for.

I love these snow boots from MODA, available in the main store and MP locations these boots are made for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet. As always they come with an extensive color HUD.

I started out looking through my folder of hair to figure out one that completed my look and wasn’t really happy with any of them. I started scouring Seraphim.com and found this one at Tannenbaum. Adoness has long been one of my favorite stores for eclectic and punk styles. She also now makes her hairbases for Catwa, Lelutka, and LOGO. The LOGO appliers are Omega based so they do work on the LAQ heads, which just tickled me pink because I love Adoness’ hairbases. You have until Christmas day to get on over to Tannenbaum and get this and so many more amazing items.

I am very late in sharing these with you but when I saw them I knew they’d be perfect to complete my look. Released for Remnant and unfortunately, as of the writing of this blog they are not available in the store or on the MP but keep checking back because they are amazing. Two versions come in the pack; pulled clip and clipless and a HUD is included as well. There are so many options to make these truly unique you could wear a different pair every day.

Matisse Rhythms

Little something from Liaison Collaborative and a little something from We Love Role-Play, both of which are still open till the end of the month ❤

Also…ever wonder just how much a difference a png pic is from a jpg pic?  I know all the reasons for choosing png over jpg…and the pro’s and con’s of both, but as I was discussing available space on WordPress with Darth the other day…I wondered.  I have about 40% storage space left…and I know I eat a bunch up because my pics are big (and png) and I add vendor pics in my posts whenever possible (ie. how easy they are to find).  So the picture above is png….13.5 mb worth.  The one below is jpg… same size (4923 X 2608), and comes in at 1.42 mb.  If you click on the pictures they blow up to screen size and you can see more detail.  Doooo it!  IS there a discernible difference in quality?
