I’ve got this arrangement with a friend – she teaches me Photoshop techy thingies and I teach her wordpress bloggy thingies. Today, we spent 4 hours teaching me the PS bits and bobs. Here we go:

This is the basic image I started with. Set against a fullbright white background, a simple posed snapshot

Post processing – I won’t bore you with all the inbetween steps, but I can assure you it took about 4 hours.

And a wee frame. This photograph looks to me as if she is a painting on some recently excavated ruins. I had a terrific time learning this, thank goodness my teacher has the patience of a saint!

I’ve been going through my inventory and discovered quite an array of stunning gowns I have accumulated over the past months. Considering the post-Christmas budgetry issues that always happen this year, I thought I’d show you some of the things I have unearthed. These designs are from Azul

*~*New Year Party Time*~*

This delicate cocktail length dress, ‘Josephine Leger’ is so whimsical and light, it floats around you. I have added purple ballet shoes from DeLa and jewellery from my old favourite, Muse. The hair is a new release from Detour which I spotted on Cajsa’s blog yesterday

*~*New Year Party Time*~*

A close up of the Dauphine jewellery from Muse. The skin is the ‘Bella Painted – blue eye shadow with grape doll lips’ from Ugly Duck. My lovely lashes are from Miamai

The second dress, Aida, is shown full length.

*~*New Year Party Time*~*

I have added the stunning jewellery from Alchemy Immortalis, “Ami amet deli pencet” French Brooch Necklace and Vine Earrings and used the options to alter the metal to silver.

*~*New Year Party Time*~*

This skin is the Bella – Painted (green eyeshadow – blue doll lips) from Ugly Duck, lashes again from Miamai.

I hope my photos give you some ideas for your own inventory raid. You’d probably be surprised to see what you unearth 🙂

Ugly Duck now has a gatcha machine!

It’s been loaded up with some of the very unique designs from Fade Lei. Here’s a sampling:

Gatcha!

One of the best things about going to collaborative events, is in the discoveries you make. New designers, designers new to you, ideas, concepts, the “oh wow I didn’t know you could do that!” moments, and of course the opportunity to meet new people.

I made a number of discoveries at DU 3 which quite thrilled me. Here we go with Oyakin:

Designers I Found From Going to DU3

Skirt and jacket sold seperately, and available in a range of colours.

Designers I Found From Going to DU3

And a song for you (yes its a kiwi singer):

The opening of Designers United 3 last night was a scene of MASS lag. Sometimes, that effects designers too! There’s a couple of updates today, you should have received these updates if you purchased these things:

DU # 3 Update

This torso-defining corset is a part of the Veschi-ville outfit

DU # 3 Update

This is how it looks – a little different from my earlier post. The corset is adjustable by clicking and selecting from the drop down menu

DU # 3 Update

And lastly, the hair from Waffles has now got the 2 strings of pearls decorations. You should have also received thiese if you purchased the hair earlier.

See you there!

Once more I was enticed to visit the Designers United 3 Event to seek out more quirky designs.

Uh oh…

You will find these and more at Designers United 3 Event for one week only!

I’ve been waiting impatiently for episode 3 of Designers United – this event’s theme is Vaudeville. It was with a sense of exhilaration that I arrived at 12.07, just after midnight SLT to see a mass of similarly enthused followers of Wearable Art. I say this because the clothing and accessories available at this event are not your run-of-the-mill kick around the grid bargain store style. These designers have let their imaginations run, with a tumultuous splash of brilliant colours, intepreting as they go the theme of DU # 3, ‘Vaudeville’. Let us see what i found:
