Well this pretend mermaid is certainly walking on land. I was only able to do this because of the help of Collabor88. Their theme was Under the Sea for this month, which is where I bought this beautiful dress. I was able to walk around on land and found this gorgeous forest for the day.
Lately, the grid has been taken over by the beach it seems. It’s those wonderful dog days of summer that are inspiring designers to create accessories and clothing for the beach. I think everyone has beach vacations and fun in the sun on the brain. I know that I sure do!
When ever I think about summer, my mind immediately goes to the best mermaid under the sea–my friend Kira. Some have seen this woman and her moody persona walking around. Be fore warned, she is more bark than bite, but she gets a little moody when she’s been out of the water for too long.
Kira and I went shopping to find the greatest water inspired wares that we could find. Collabor 88 didn’t disappoint us. We picked up a few items and immediately started to make outfits. As always, we wanted to take a moment and catalog our newest purchases, so we headed off to the prettiest forest with our new found legs.
In that forest, I gained some new skills. I’ve always been working towards improving my pictures, which means taking advice from residents on how to improve those pictures. Kira has served as a mentor to me for as long as I can remember. It was in this forest that I finally learned how to use depth of field. I feel like this picture should come with one of those window stickers that warn of a new driver, but instead should read beware first time with depth of field. It can make a girl really nervous to put herself out there, but at the same time it’s quite exciting. A big thank you to Kira for teaching me how to grow in my photography skills.
I hope that you grow in whatever intrigues you in SL–be it role play, pictures, scripts or builds. Never forget to thank the residents who help you along the way. They are the ones who help to make our inspirations a reality.
Take Care and Happy Shopping
