Nashville Nightlife

This weekend’s photo challenge was a hard one, but good one! You were supposed to green screen yourself and take the image and insert it into a real life photo of a destination or travel scene. I chose this particular photo because it’s one of my favorite places. This is at Printers Alley in Nashville, TN, right outside my favorite bar of all time – Bourbon St. Blues and Boogie Bar. I’m fairly certain the shot was taken around Mardi Gras too due to the decor! If you are ever in this lovely city, you have to go! The cajun food is to die for and the hurricanes are legendary.

I am fairly certain I’ve used this outfit before but it screamed country (it is in Nashville after all) but also chic at the same time. So here we are!

Ride it . . . My . . . Pony?

I had a joke with a friend about me taking photos with bananas. I quickly that night found on on marketplace and took a funny photo. Imagine my amusement when I saw this at Limit8 this go-round! I decided it would be mine. It’s kind of sad actually. I worry I’ve done the majority of shopping I’m going to do in Second Life because everything’s just been done twenty or thirty times and I’m like, I have two versions of this. Do I need another? Is it that varied? and then I just don’t even buy it.

Also, I have added Izzie’s freckles applier to face and body and I think it looks even better. I’m a fan of freckled Cori and the skins I’ve been using lately don’t have freckled options. So, making my own!

I do not have a show until Friday this week! So I’m going to use the time off to do some more pictures, build some scenes, decorate a Linden house, I don’t know what else. Maybe visit some scenic routes!

Unmasked

It’s time for the weekend challenge again! While it’s not quite the weekend I’m uncertain as to how busy I am going to actually be, and since this one was a little elaborate I decided to get a head start and do it on a day I knew I had time for. For what I had in mind, I needed help.

The theme was “Horror Cosplay.” I’m not a big fan of horror movies, so I decided to try to sexify it a little bit instead of going straight for the gore. The title is “unmasked” for obvious reasons, taking off Jason-girl’s mask and exposing her etc etc I suck at describing my methods behind my madness. So here it is. Unmasked.

Oceanic

I am super excited for this photo, because I got to choose the weekend challenge this time. I chose underwater life with light beams from above the surface. This particular shot gave me the perfect excuse to break out the mermaid getup I’d only used once or twice (at a venue I used to play at that was underwater). I took inspiration from a poem on my friend Porter’s profile by the inspiring Tapiwa Mugabe, which I have included below:

All she wanted
was to find a place to stretch her bones.
A place to lengthen her smiles
and spread her hair.
A place where her legs could walk
without cutting and bruising.
A place unchained.
She was born out of ocean breath.
I reminded her;
‘Stop pouring so much of yourself
into hearts that have no room
for themselves.
Do not thin yourself.
Be vast.
You do not bring the ocean to a river.

Profound words, indeed. I searched a few different sims looking for the right underwater spot to take my photo, and the beautiful Hana Aloha Surfing Paradise sim was the final spot to call my name. It’s gorgeous both below water and above surface.

I am leaving tomorrow morning for the weekend to attend my RL sister’s wedding! Congratulations to her and her family as they get bigger. My last show is tonight at 10 PM at After Dark, and when I return I’ll be back at Stanza at 9pm Sunday evening.
