Summer

“Life is better in flip flops”

This could be me over the weekend. But no, not likely to happen. So much work to do and no time for relaxing (yet) but, hey, I’m not complaining.

This will be my last addition to the Hair Fair Contest 2016. I really enjoyed working on these projects and I wish good luck to everyone participating.

It was also a great opportunity to wear Azuchi’s lovely swimsuit (I’ve been looking forward to wearing/blogging it) and also, Wasabi Pills’ cute hair.

If you go to the beach this weekend though, please don’t let me know! Lol.

Have fun everyone and be good

(n) a lover of rain; someone who finds joy and peace of mind during rainy days.

I have never been a great fan of the rain myself. I’m sure it has to do with where I come from, Greece is not the rainiest country you can find, but when it rains, I’m desperately trying to find shelter. Maybe I was a cat in my other life. Ha!

I have to admit, there are times, when at home, with a nice warm beverage in hand, and it’s raining heavily outside, that feel amazing. There is definitely something about the rain. Whether it is melancholy or just sadness, the fact alone that it makes me feel something, works for me.

This is kind of what I tried to capture with this picture. Success or failure, up to you. I know I enjoyed the process of making it.

PS: If you still haven’t heard about the Hair Fair contest, have a look at this.

Whoops

 

“There are no accidents…There is only some reason that we haven’t yet understood”

Anonymous

I guess you’re wondering why this is called Whoops!

So, agapee designed a new gacha for the new round of K9 and consists of bikini tops and bottoms. There are two types of tops and bottoms you can get, one being the regular bikini option and two being the slightly pulled up or on the side option.

When I put it on, it reminded of me these funny memes and pictures you often see online where “accidents” happen while someone takes a picture. Ladies forget to close their legs when wearing skirts, people might be picking their noses or yawning etc.

So I figured this will be a picture with an accident as well. Like, whoops my bikini top is not proper. Haha.

Apart from agapee, I’m wearing Genesis Lab new head, Alisha. Also in Kustom9 and also gacha (rare). Genesis never disappoints me. For those that haven’t noticed, GL has already released 4 new mesh heads this month only and there is a fifth upcoming release for the new round of Shiny Shabby that opens in 2 days. Looking forward to that one as well.

The bikini bottom is from this month’s Luxebox, beautifully designed by Foxes and last but not least, the fruit phone is from the newest gacha release of Le Coq D’or from the Showroom. So cute and summer-y.

Have fun everyone and be good 💜

Redemption

“Don’t limit your challenges, Challenge your limits”

I had been informed about the Elysion June 2016 Photo Challenge last month, and even though I love challenges unfortunately, I don’t have the time or concentration needed to take part in it.

I’m a huge fan of the Elysion sim, so I immediately had to check the Redemption sim out. As expected, it didn’t disappoint. Whether you’re a fan of the theme of it or not, you will find so many beautiful spots to take pictures in.

I’d like to encourage everyone to participate and show their creativity and amazing ideas. Only hurry as it’s scheduled to close on the 27th of June.

Below you can find more details about the challenge.

Enjoy  ❤

Please read the info about the Elysion Photography Challenge that was sent via Notecard from the lovely and so talented owner of the sim Syn Beresford to all Elysion members:

“Hello Ely peoples,

 I wanted to send out some general info on an upcoming Photography Challenge that will be open to Elysion members during the month of June.  Sim Landmark and more info will be sent out via group notice when the challenge gets closer to opening date. This Photography challenge will be a three week long challenge that will be located at an additional sim where the look and feel of the sim, was inspired by the popular comic series PREACHER.

 For those of you who are a fan of Preacher, you will have more of an idea of what to expect, for those who are not familiar with the comic series

 AMC is about to kick off a new show based off the books, and you can watch the trailer at the link below (if you are wondering what in the hell I am yapping about)

  INSPIRING CREATIVITY

The idea of designing/building an entire sim with a limited life has been something that I have wanted to do for quite some time. It gives me a chance to challenge myself to create an additional environment, for members to explore, photograph, and enjoy. My hope is that the Redemption photography challenge will inspire members to enjoy and explore SL photography, regardless if they are a seasoned SL/RL photographer, or someone trying it for the first time. 

IN JUNE MAKE SOME BEAUTIFUL ART AND HAVE FUN!

 Photos taken at the Redemption Challenge Sim can be shared in the Elysion Flickr Pool, which now hosts over 11,000 photos from several talented photographers, the pool is located here:

At the end of the challenge, there will be a Redemption Gallery Exhibit at The White Pines Gallery.

So get your camera’s ready!  And let’s get creative!  And as always, thank you everyone for always being supportive of Elysion, all of you have made Ely a very special place that continues to grow and evolve.
