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.

My little pack of hamster poses is by Fashiowl – I really love this pose maker, always such whimsical items. This pack of hammy poses is just $125L, if you look behind the counter you’ll see FOUR sets of free props/poses just for you – I don’t think there s a group slot required.

Randomness (inc Freebies)?

I had a really nice time easing myself back into SL just checking out LM’s and potential freebies and just other randomness so this post is going to be a little bit of a mishmash.

I am actually in this picture but don’t bother trying to spot me as my old LM took me right under the lighthouse and it was only by caming and TPing onto one of the seats inside was I able to get untrapped.  Since it’s such a beautiful setting I thought I’d take a snap.

Thanks to Ever Wonder for sending me her latest offering for the Designer Showcase Event.  I think I’ve missed it the last few rounds so I’m going to have to check it once I get my ass back in SL gear lol.  This outfit isn’t free but like everything here there is items at a special discounted price.

I’m putting in my “update” here because I’ve now had a nice little wander around this event.  Not much for me but then again my invent is stuffed but I did see lots of exc basics and so many things come with the extra bonuses(?) of colour Huds.  I had to quickly TP out because the stall next to More Than Ever has a shoe and boot offering with what looked like a really big colour Hud option and Damnit I don’t need more shoes.

XXXLightuse

The outfit is called Layercake and there are 3 colour pack options, I’m showing you  only 1 of the 3 colours in the “Hot Earth” pack but there is also a mint or pastel pack option.  Each pack contains a small hud of 3 different shades in each pack. The top comes in 5 standard mesh fits and the shorts come with 2 versions one with a cut out on the hip, I’m wearing the shorts from the mint pack so you can see it clearly.  Have to say I would have a problem choosing which colour pack to go for as the mint pack is so lovely and fresh, the pastels aren’t childish and brown is my fav colour.

I must mention that the shorts only come in Maitreya and Omega Appliers and not a system later so if you don’t use a Mesh Bod or haven’t invested in the Omega Applier then it maybe something you need to think about BUT in all honesty since I don’t use my mesh body that much, I’m too lazy, for most of us it will be very easy to find a really nice pair of mesh or system layer shorts, leggings, jeans in anycase.

If you’ve put off purchasing the Omega Applier because you think it’s going to be complicated let me tell you it isn’t.  You wear it like any other Applier, click it and it’s now loaded into your mesh bod and you don’t have to use that one again and just use the Omega Appliers that come in the clothing packs just like any other one.  I think most Mesh body suppliers in SL now have their bods adapted to use the Omega Appliers, I know my SLink Mesh Physique body does.  If I remember correctly it cost me 100Lds off the Marketplace.

Now for more randomness.

I went over to the andika pose shop which is a lovely pose and prop shop but that’s not what you’re seeing in this picture as I had spotted inside the andika shop a TP to a demo area and all of these cuties are D-Lab fun stuff.

XXXLight5

Since all of the free pose delivery parcels are wearables  I decided to unpack it all here and to linger in this lovely place.  This book isn’t actually one of the poses but one of the delivery props, if I remember correctly you get wearable books, heart and a watering can and when you click them you get the gifts sent to you.

XXXlight6

This is one of the simpler poses and as someone who has more poses than even a supermodel could ever pull even I found them to be keepers, some of the poses come with props and some are just cute wearables.

DOH as I was LM grabbing I spotted a rather handy prop/pose as a Welcome Gift that I missed on my first visit.  The delivery system is a wearable umbrella but click on that and you get sent a nice little set of poses, umbrella and I do believe a wearable pose Hud.  Will be trying to get a picture of me using this lovely umbrella as soon as poss.

Thats enough rambling off me.  Time to get my RL and SL socks pulled up and get my posts back up and running.

Shhh!!!

I’m not even sure how I ended up here but what a brilliant place this is for those of us who don’t have land to rezz props and poses or the funds to buy them then this is a stunning find.

Cubes

Kay Weston has been amazingly generous in that she has studios set out packed with props and poses.

guilty

Not only props and poses for singles but also groups and families (and the guilty).

wanted

Each studio has a simple to use rezzer and each packed with stuff.

Beach

But check out the TP because that too is full of sky boxes set out as full scenes.

haunted

Look what I found in one of the sky box! I remember this house from a previous Halloween and sadly because of its massive prim count only someone with a sim or in this case can have one of these.  I’ve taken this at the foot of the hill and zoomed right out because this is a massive build that you can walk up the hill to and use the house for many a scary picture.

green

Squeezes in a last shot because not only do you have studios and sky boxes but walk out of the studio area and on the land you yet again have beautifully stages settings out for you.

So what do you have to do, apart from follow the link, to use all of this? simply join  her FREE group image Essential and start posing. However please find it in your heart to make a donation.  Although Kay has a pose and prop shop (which you can treat yourself to some of her very reasonably priced poses, and plenty of males ones) you can never count on selling enough to cover the tier fee and when someone has spent so much time, money and imagination and then allowing everyone to use it for free is pretty damned generous so if you can, and there is a message sent out every so often to remind you, make a donation.  She may never get enough donations to cover the tier fee but at least it’s a sign that you really appreciate all of this but of course this is all for everyone’s use no matter how rich or poor so don’t let lack of Lindens put you off coming here.
