Dancing with myself

Standard

How often does it happen, you´re either at home, on the bus, in your car, basically anywhere, and suddenly, that tune comes on the radio, or the shuffle on your iphone makes it´s notes ring, and for no reason at all except that you have a beat and a melody you can´t just not dance.

Pixel Mode – Ashworth Armoire – Black (FaMESHed)

You sometimes start just by slowly tapping your foot, growing faster and faster as the beat speeds up and suddenly you´re dancing, and the most fun part of it is, you´re dancing like no one is watching, because even if they where, you don´t care and you would never notice. For as long as that song lasts is just you and the beat, nothing else exists or matters.

I´m pretty sure we all had moments like these, i call it the dancing with myself, and it was my inspiration for this blog post when i tried out this pose set from flowey, and the basic idea for the whole setting, it´s also how most of my blog posts start, so often with a simple contagious beat that speeds ups and grows till it´s a full 5 minute song.

1st pose came with the chair all others are from Flowey – psycho dance

And a simple song, becomes a lot more when i start building up on that tiny inspiration, and concept, you can´t just dance in an empty space, you need a setting a context and meaning, and then the rest of the blog post grows, with me sitting down and picking pieces and little bits that sorta fit in together not only for me but for those reading.

So i bring you today a peaceful, but at the same time busy space , i love doing furniture posts even if they take time and patience and a lot of positioning, i guarantee you  have has much furniture, if not more off frame in this picture, mostly because there is so much amazing quality available n sl these days, it becomes hard to pick from it all.

But i did my picking and as you can see is mostly part and bits from a lost of what´s available at FaMESHed this month and yet i had also to leave a lot of the awesome out, but you can´t possibly blog all the things i keep saying to myself.

This isn´t probably the best way either to show of the ne Slink Avatar Enhancement, and i am sure you will find a lot more, better posts out there that show you all the options, and the different appliers, including all the nail options from 1001 different stores, but i always do things my way, and i wanted to show the appliers in action and inworld as i normally use them, in my regular casual style, and with movement, free from close ups , with plenty of shadow dancing and look for the first time no seams at all on my feet or hands.

I´m sold and in love with these, and thanks to Siddean Munro for making the appliers available to other creators and also to Izzie’s for putting out matches so fast and all in a super easy to use HUD, i now wait for all the other shops that wil also follow, and all the pretty nail options i´l have soon to play with.

Since i started pinning Orcsy has been amazing in helping me out, with Fifty Linden Friday pinnings and random previews for events as well as sales and promotions, and i had to make a blog post thanking her so the other Sunday we finally got to take pic for it, using some of her poses. I did mess a lot with these on photoshop just to experiment, i wanted for the pictures to be as colourful and bright as she is.

Anyways here we are in our favourite rollerskating outfits (is not unusual to see us in matching outfits, or even seeing two elys running around yard sales or hunts) and also bring you not just pics but updates with a few new boards for upcoming events: The Mens Dept. opens today and is almost pinned down, i will finish it in a few hours when i get home, Skin Fair 2013 already as a pinboard and opens on the 15th, also on the 15th starts The Boutique and i promise previews soon, and before that we have COLLABOR88 on the 8th.

Tomorrow i´ll bring you all my usual pinning of Woeful Wednesday, and don´t forget to check all the other regular events still going strong and a bunch of new additions to my Spring Fever pinboard a mix of new releases and blog post by some amazing bloggers.

See you all later and i hope this week is treating you all well.
