Look #23

Hi.

This is what I felt like wearing earlier in the week. Got this mushroom hair from vanity and was shuffling through the god awful mess that’s my inventory and found it. So I went from there. IDK what season this outfit belongs in.

My season. :P

Look #22

It’s about time I invest in a better journal layout. I’ve always worked under the notion that it’s the content that’s important. But now that I’ve decided I really do enjoy keeping a blog of my fashion adventures, memories, and growth in styling (for my own personal happiness), I think I’ll put some time and money into making this look more professional.

I’ve also developed a few good pictures during my exploration of photography. Simple, but I think they’re good and represent my style. I still have a few I need to document, but I’m going  to create my mega website portfolio soon. Some of my friends have seen some of my other websites, and I’ll be happy to do this one.

This is my homework for my SoloEvane modeling course. We are supposed to come dressed for Fall Season, NYC or Paris themed. :x Every idea I started off with morphed into something way complex and fun. And I spent nearly an hour reconstructing a collar on a shirt for another outfit. But… it wasn’t what I think the instructor is wanting.

So. I kept it simple this time. A simple style… I think.

The colors are, to my surprise, LSU colors! Woot!! Though I’m not entirely a huge fan of that college football team seeing as how I’m a Georgia Blulldog through and through. I do live in Louisiana and I do live in Tiger nation, so… this is a tribute to my local college team colors :)

Okay. Now to type out the dreaded style card :( There must be an easier way of doing this.

Absinthe’s Style:

Look #21

Everybody is wearing the giant petal dress from GIZZA. Yes. I own it too, but since it’s the latest craze I haven’t thrust myself in it yet. I was shopping and I saw this dress with was a similar style, but it spoke to me. So I bought it and wore it on a date last night :)

And I think he thought I was very cute. Yay!  What a pleasant surprise wearing this dress was, because it was big, and puffy, and it knocked things over. BUT! It also spits out petals! It rains these peach petals as you move around, and I’m such a fan of the little details. So I finally had to take it off to work on my new idea with my friend Jack. But, still. It spits out petals!!!

The head piece is from Donna Flora. I couldn’t resist wearing something bird-like in a dress that looks like a giant nest of silk :)

Hat: Donna Flora: CRISTINA hairpiece

Hair: *booN:  YKZ851 hair chocolate

Earrings & Necklace: Donna Flora: Corals Set

Look #20

Well. I think I’ve had an achievement today. I figured out how to put on lashes. I THINK! I THINK! Don’t get too excited now. But, they don’t look like they’re floating off my skull anymore — I think! We’ll see. But because I spent 1 hour trying to really really put the bastards on, I don’t think I’ll be changing the shape of my eyes anytime soon.

In fact, I’m finished changing my avies face entirely. (At least for this week).

I’ve been thinning out my outfits, and I found this one from Cora Lu’s recent Paper Couture line. I wore this to my friend Hikaru’s birthday party. It was black and white themed and I remember running around 1 hr before throwing this together. There’s nothing more fun than styling under pressure. It’s better than letting thing stew for a few days like some of the things I’ve started.

It was a fun dress! Indeed! As are the others I’ll get around to posting. I’ve been working more on my photography and photoshopping. I’ve also gotten to the point were I think I want a studio. I think wind-lights are cool and everything, but I really want to be able to control projection lights and shadows. I think things will be easier for me.

I really really love this picture. Work it Absinthe work it! lol. Yes. I am a goob. And?

And I’ve attached a style card.  Good night all and sweet dreams!

#19

I’ve been working on this look sparingly in between my favorite fashion show of the season, the One in a Million Designer Challenge, and some RL company that’s come into town this weekend. I’ve been putting pieces here and there, and ugh. My inventory is a wonderful mess! I’ve devised a plan to photo capture items and file them on my hard drive to make a out-of-world closet to aid me in my missions. Until then, I go off memory.

This look is for a contest I decided to enter. I’ve done one here and there with little luck, but I figure I can use the practice with photography. Why not have a focus and some rules? Makes it kind of fun.

I really like this outfit. My friend Devie said I looked like a sophisticated lady. :P Though I was hoping to add some “Edge” to it. Whatever that means. Sometimes people drop fashion terms in SL and I don’t know what they’re looking for. But, I catch myself using them and I wince, because I know the God of fashion probably wants to strike me down!

Anyway, enjoy. Style card included. I get a free weekend to fill in my style cards next weekend :)

Absinthe’s Style:

Head: Bliss Couture: Imani Hat (black)

Hair: Miamai – Anna – Chocolate

Earrings: Indy&Co – Briolette Earrings: Rouge

Coat: GizzA – BOSL Le Rouge

Shawl and leggings: [sYs] RAVEN – dark outfit

Shoes: Biastice – Nicki Ankle Boots- red

thank you very much!

Look #18

I am so very sleepy. I can barely keep my eyes open, but I wanted to post these photos before I went to bed. I want to give a shout out to my friends. I loveth you guys. You make every day in SL fashionably fun, and I’m so happy you all are doing so well in modeling. I’m thankful you all let me tag along !

I love this dress from Cora Lu’s new line from Paper Couture. It was the first one I gravitated to in the store. I have always loved her style of formal, because her items speak to me. They just feel so nice on my avatar (if that makes sense at all). I’ll likely be posting all her dresses. Please run out to her store to buy them and support her. We need Cora to make us more beautiful things!

So I played around with lights and photoshop this evening and came out with this. I think I’m going to start experimenting and figuring out how to make certain aspects stand out. It will take some time. I’m also going to pay more attention to my editing. Since there are so few pixels in avatar art it’s very easy to fix things, however easy to mess up. So I’m going to work on that as well.

Details Watson. Details.  — I’ll get the hang of this one day.

Absinthe’s Style — coming soon

Look 17 – Pretty Bald in Pink Campaign

Hello all!

Each year I walk for Relay-4-Life RL. It’s something that I enjoy doing. But this is a neat way to get involved in SL.  I was talking to my good friend Cham and she passed this note card to me describing the cause. How cool huh? I signed up, and had my picture taken by the talented Maria Parkin (marir.parkin), and donated 1k for my official picture. However, I’m too excited and anxious to post what I looked like for it, so I did a 10 minute snapshot of myself and 2 minute photoediting. I’m sure I didn’t do myself any justice! But, it’s for a good cause! Style card coming. Information located below this picture.

Oh, and I passed my Opium Advanced Course. :) yay! Now, just waiting for that lucrative piece of purple paper. See you guys at the stores!
