The Wonders Gate

Good morning world! Not much to share with you today apart from the fact that I did go to the beach yesterday but I did jinx it as well. No need to get into the details but let’s just say that my first swim was a bit disappointing! But there are more to come so…

Today’s post features stuff from [ keke ], Serenity Style and DRD. Some are new releases, some are rather older ones. Have a look below for every item used and where you can currently find it.

Not all who wander are lost

Good morning world. Everyone had a good weekend? I definitely did. The weather it’s getting better and better every day (well, it did rain yesterday, but only for a couple of hours) which affects my mood positively but also makes me think of beaches and summer holidays so will probably give me a hard time focusing at work.

Speaking of hard times, let’s move on to the stuff. Today I’m showing the new gacha Hive released at the Arcade. The set is called Summer Camp, consists of 14 common and 3 rare items to collect, each and every one of them amazing. So why a hard time?

A gacha like this requires a full landscape. And I’m terrible at it. I first worked on this set about a week ago, trying to mix and match other things from the Arcade as well, wanting to showcase everything the best way possible and I thought I had made a good job until I saw posts of this set from other bloggers and photographers on social media. They were beautiful, inspiring and made me decide that I needed to work on this more and differently. But I don’t worry anymore. Alexa promised me to teach me how to terraform and create big, impressive landscapes so there you go. I will, one day, amaze you with them. Until then, be gentle and remember that I’m a noob. He he.

I managed to use some other stuff from the Arcade as well, such as Brocante’s bicycle and miwa’s airship kitchen decoration items. Have a look at the credits below, everything’s listed. Last but not least, everything I’m wearing, apart from the top (which is a new Addams release but you’ll get a better look at it in another post soon) is also from the Arcade by Tableau Vivant, Vinyl and Friday.

Good morning world! I know what you’re thinking…this is me posting “every other day”. I’m sorry, I tried! But there are so many good things out there, created every day, I can’t just ignore them, I need to share!

We Love Role-Play opens tonight and it’s going to be huge. It’s an anniversary round so gifts are going to be available for you by every store booth. For this picture I used 22679’s release for the event, which is pretty big! In order to showcase the whole thing I had to really zoom out and do a landscape picture but I’m not good at landscaping, so this is what you get instead. The set consists of ramps, stairs, corners and basically parts of a path, which you can create by combining all the pieces together like a puzzle! It was great fun working on it. You can have a better look at the whole set here.

Make sure you check the credits for the rest of the stuff and have fun at the event!

Perpetual journey

Good morning! Last night I realized that, this month, I have been blogging daily. Yes, there hasn’t been a single day in April where I didn’t post a picture and I’m a bit proud of myself. It’s not the greatest accomplishment in the world for sure, but thinking about how limited my time is and how hard for me is to concentrate sometimes, I think I will buy myself an ice cream today.

Do I recommend blogging daily? Absolutely not! I believe that, no matter how skillful you are, when you massively produce, whatever that is, your quality, inevitably will be affected or you will make mistakes. Blogging wise, it could be anything. Wrong credits, forget to add something you wanted to your scene, a very bad editing of a picture etc. If you can do it, that’s great. I admire you for that. I personally have realized some mistakes I’ve made only because I rushed a post (which I won’t point out as you might have not noticed them, hehe) or I see some pictures I have posted and wonder what I was thinking. I could have edited them better or worked on a scene differently.

Noone forced me to post every day, I know. I believe it was an unofficial challenge I put myself through, to see if I can make it. And I’m planning on finishing it. I will continue to post daily until the end of the month, but after that, I will try to go back to “every other day”. I said I will try, because I know me, it won’t be the first time that I will break my own promises. I know for sure though, that I have to relax a little. This has started to feel overwhelming again and I need to be enjoying it.

Anyways, today’s post will be the last one featuring stuff from Bloom. The event ends on Sunday and I believe I covered pretty much everything from it. I’m kidding, there’s still plenty of goodies for you to see and grab. It has been a blast covering the event, mostly because I got to make a lot of spring-y, outdoorsy scenes. They’re new to me, very interesting and challenging. The rest of the stuff is new releases from 22769 from the new Shiny Shabby round and some FLF goodies from Hive. So take a minute to read the credits below for more details.

That also explains the post’s title. It’s my “Perpetual Journey” to the world of blogging. I didn’t know what perpetual means and had to google it. It will be my word of the day. Off to work now! Have a lovely day and be kind to one another. See you all next time.

Under the sky so blue

Good morning world! The sky is so blue today and I’m loving it! It was about time we had some nice weather, as the last couple of weeks have been cold and moody! But May is only a few days away…!

Today’s post features a lot of goodies from Bloom. The event closes at the end of this month so you might not want to take your time. To be honest, this was one of the first posts I’ve been meaning to make for it but I never liked the result. I made this picture three times until I decided to post it. There are a lot of stuff in it and I wanted an angle that would best showcase everything but each time I would get bad shadows or just a wrong frame. I finally decided to go with this one which, is not my favorite one but, I think it’s better than the others.

The list of the credits is long but I know you’ve been looking forward to reading something whilst having your morning coffee…so..you’re welcome!

Homage to the dream city

It is Monday again but I’m not in the mood to complain about it. Also, I have to go to work super early this morning so I don’t have the time to do so.

Today’s post features the goodies (well, some of them) from Soy and NOMAD from the Arcade. I have never done a scene like this before so I was challenged. It took me a while but I think the result is pretty decent.

This was also fun because I had the amazing Lawrence D. Pryce to pose with me in it. He saw the – before, during and after – the making of the scene, so I’m not sure the result now will have a great effect on him. But let’s hope he likes it, he he.
