Poseurs Heaven.(Free Skin & Free Photostudio’s).

Stalking Pays.  I was, innocently, checking someones profile where a group they were a member of grabbed my attention so I joined and TPed and OMG I’m in FREAKING HEAVEN!

BE STILL MY BEATING HEART!

So many top quality props, backdrops, room and even skyboxes all FREE for us to use.

You can see the purple TP in front of me and using that it will take you to a total of 9(?) platforms and I think there is a LM for a cave system but I’ve only checked out 2 platforms so far and I cannot wait till I log back in as from just the 2 platforms I can see she has used some of the best backdrops in SL.

Not only do you get some of the top backdrops in SL you even get rezzing rights! Obviously, you do have to join the group but that’s free.

But don’t worry if you don’t have many poses as a lot of the backdrops such as this one come with poses.

I literally took dozens of pictures even just of the 2 platforms I’ve check out, in the end, it was just so hard which backdrops to show you so I’ve kept it to just these 4 pictures but there is everything from a Romeo & Juliet balcony, abstract arty farty backdrops and again I cannot wait to see what else there is but I know I won’t be disappointed.

I was going to be selfish and keep this all to myself but then I decided not to be such a meanie as I know that some of you will really love to have access to a place where you can take some pictures you will be proud of even if you’re a point and snap sort of photographer.

REMEMBER, to keep you snapping and the costs down if you save your pictures to “disk” it means it’s saved to your computer and it’s FREE. So you can snap away inworld check them out on your computer, just save them to a folder,  and pick the ones you like best and it’s only then if you want to upload them inworld that you have to pay the 10Lds.

So who is the damned generous person who has gone to a great expense? Her name is Anne Maertens (annealyce.maertens) and I know that name and I know her shop which is called Dulce Secrets. The reason I know her shop is that when I was first dipping my system toes into blogging she had the same sort of set up but since I gradually started to buy my own backdrops or use my sim/home I stopped going.  So to find that not only is her free studio is still up and running but it’s grown so much bigger and of course now there is a lot of creators making the backdrops was just a total Woo Hoo.

Naturally, I will be checking out her inworld shop and I’ve put the LM for you as well.

PS I even like the tag over your head which says “photographer at work” and I think I might use that when taking pictures even not using this one and I think in future as a small thanks, when I use one of her backdrops I will add the LM for people to check it out.

UPDATE.  I found not just the caves but also FREE SKIN and although you get the one shade, very pale, you do get it for all the main mesh bods and face/body included.  I’m not doing a close up because I won’t be keeping it as I am positively glued into my PumeC Agatha skin but it’s hard to find a free skin which comes with head and body.

I will be keeping the subscriber gift though as it’s a lovely young blush and suits both this free skin and my preferred PumeC skin.

I have Kim Kardashian’s Ass! (Freebie & Mention of Freebies)

What a BLAST from the past this dress is.  I blogged it so many years ago and yet it’s still pretty good.

Yup that’s deffo Kimmie’s Ass which isn’t a look I aim for but if you want some “junk in your trunk” without buying the mesh body then this freebie is one of the cheap ways to do it.

There is a lot of Group gifts upstairs at Ellnique(sic) including newer more up to date fits but before you go inside you will notice that outside of the shop are rows of stands and everything on them is just 10Lds. I think most of the shoes are SLink only and the outfits are standard mesh fits but check first.  Obviously, some have aged better than others, mainly shoes.

As for the background, it’s actually a freebie from CM.Mesh and there are 3 of them in total and of course, I treated myself to a couple of paid for ones. If you do want to buy a backdrop then make sure you’re wearing the group tag because you get a discount on any purchase.  Although there is a street rezzed outside of the window I couldn’t see any full-sized demos but I took the risk and I ain’t complaining, the ones I got have fab features and great lighting to them and not unreasonably priced as well.

Old Friends.(Dollarbies)

I promise I will stop shopping on the Marketplace but while I was there I came across some old buildings which I know I have somewhere buried deep into my invent and because they still have such a wow factor and I do know some of you lot do like a good background I thought I’d do an easy Sunday morning post.

All pictures were taken just using my sim setting so you can see the atmospheric lighting built into the build.

You can see by the window frame to the left that there is a lot of that painted on look going on.

But seriously look at how good that texturing is especially when I know that most if not all of these builds are 9 years old!

I’ve taken pictures of random builds so there is a warehouse, toilet, apartment block etc.  I always thought it would be an amazing and a pretty unique way to live in SL by rezzing one of the apartment blocks in the middle of a desolate plot and just decorating one or two of the rooms to live in leaving the rest empty.

Each build does come decorated outside, this is the warehouse, and now the BUT…primmy but for those of us who want interesting backgrounds OR think of this, yes love it or hate it Valentines is creeping up on us but if you do Valentine in SL rezz one of these and then create a little oasis of romance and snuggling in the middle of one of these builds.  The cold and bare walls will make your little scene just that little bit more special.
