Because I like the name of the store!

This is my second summer in the UK, and inevitably I end up longing for Bondi Beach, coffee at Curious Cafe, salads at No Names and picnics at Tamarama. There isnt a cafe lifestyle here, and I really miss taking minime for a baby cino and always finding someone to chat with. It’s around about this time that I find myself drawn to stores in SL that remind me of home, if not with their content, with their name. Tram is one such store.

Such gorgeous, whimsical clothes, all slouchy socks scuffed knee cuteness. The Piping Shirt and Necktie remind me of spending a long day at work, then coming home and leaving a clothing trail down the hallway to the bedroom. My first shot captures Ash halfway through that process :P

This cardigan is the perfect cover up for chilly spring/summer nights. There are great texture choices, all very resonably priced. The shorts are from Kitties Lair and omg are they sexy. Get the pack and you’ll see what I mean!

The hair is a lovely group gift from Tram (other gorgeous styles are upstairs in the store). My skin is Natasha – Hayfever. Red nose from blowing it, and rosey cheeked from catching the sun. It was my Skin and Shape Expo skin, but I may put it out at a reduced price if theres enough demand for it. Also, check out my store for a couple of awesome photo filter skins, sepia and black & white. I’ve set them out for 10L, so grab em if you didnt get a chance to get them from the expo.

Shadow Play

Yes, yes, I’m totally late to the shadow party, and to viewer 2. I’ve staunchly refused to even look at viewer 2 after being completely petrified when trying a very early version of it. You know the one, it put you in clothes you had deleted months ago, fucked up your inv beyond all recognition and left you ghosted for hours. But, having been tantalised by both Newdoll‘s and Sasy‘s photo streams, I knew it was time to bite the bullet. I dont do well with change at all, I emoed and whined till 1am my time, while Mel and Sasy held my hand through various crashes, viewer changes and driver updates. I’m quite sure Mel only came into our skype chat cos Sasy was sekretly begging him to rescue her from the crazy that was me :P We discovered that Kirstens totally doesnt work for my setup, but viewer 2 did, and beautifully too. It’s gonna take me quite some fiddling until I find settings I’m in love with, but for now, Berry’s windlight setting for shadows and the LL default sky have given me the best results.

Shadow Practice 3

I’m wearing the latest release from Kouse’s Sanctum, a store I’ve loved for years, and blogged to pieces when I wrote for Freestyle. The Suzie dress is a gorgeous, retro print summer dress that can be worn 2 ways. I’m showing the shorter skirt version.

Shadow Practice 2

Wedges are the shoe for the warmer months, and they come in every style you can dream of. One of my favorites from the Shoe Expo was Kookie‘s take on this popular shoe. I like that theyre very easy to match to my skin and they arent full bright. Normally I dont care about full bright or not, but since I’ve been trying to do shadow shots, I’ve found that shadows do not like full bright at all, which rules out another pair of shoes (for this post) I wanted to show as well.

Shadow Practice 1

Weeee, shadows on my face, of the goodly kind!!! Which settings do you love when shooting shadows? And has using shadows made your blogging harder or easier?
