Maxi Gossamer, You're Fabulous

We all know Maxi Gossamer is fabulous, but I had to shout it out when I took a photo of this Baboushka fur collar and hat, still available at December's Collabor88.

Also seen are my Mandala Steking ears, Glam Affair Renee skin - a special sale at My Attic - and the ever striking Mayfly eyes.  Know what else I'm wearing that's not in the pic? Nothing!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge - Amazon

It's time to say goodbye to the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge with a thanks to Luna Jubilee, its creator.  I managed to stick to the challenge for the entire year without missing one, which was my first goal in the challenge.  The second goal was to improve my photography with a weekly task.  I think I did that, too.  When I look back, I have to smile at the difference between the first (Champagne) and last challenge posts.  Still liking the bubbly, though!

Zodiac - Earthy Capricorn

I switched hair color from my usual ginger tones to an earthy brown to highlight this beautiful Ploom skin called Harlowe.  It's currently available at the Capricorn Zodiac event, as is the cozy sweater from Pink Outfitters.

Tipsy in My Attic

I'm a little lost without a color assignment today for Luna Jubilee's last week of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge.  So I drank a little wine, then a little more, and just a teeeeeensy bit more.... well, you get the picture.  I challenged myself to a photo with as many items from the latest round of My Attic at the Deck that I could squeeze into one frame. 

Let's see - there's the Scarlet Creative fireplace grouping, the Ploom hair, the Glam Affair skin, the Somnia top (I love this top!) and the Adorkable pose and wine bottle prop. Not bad for one pic! Actually, not bad for one sale event!  Hurry on over to My Attic.  You too can be tipsy.

In the Pink at Pure Poison

It's snowing! If it stays cold for a few days I'll have a white Christmas for the first time in awhile.  A perfect time to venture out in my new release sweater outfit (including the shoes and leggings!) from Pure Poison.  I popped on my Dura group gift hair for a little extra warmth.

I Come Bearing Gifts

Christmas is drawing closer and I went running around the neighbourhood delivering presents.  I got to the last house and there was no answer for a while and I thought Friar must still be angry with me after I accidentally reversed an elephants arse into his doorway, where it left a smelly deposit.  But that was ages ago, surely he has some festive spirit in him. Suddenly I heard a deep, grizzly voice saying "Wadda ye want?" He didn't sound at all happy and he scared the blinking bejeezus out of me so I dropped the presents on the doorstep and ran for the hills, my heart about thudding out of my chest. Maybe the Hai Karate aftershave will cheer him up, if that doesn't do the trick then he's bound to be happy with hand knitted jumper with a cheery face of Santa on it. 

This Adam & Eve skin is super gorgeous. It comes with different makeups and a few extra layers such as freckles and hair bases. I'm not one for much make-up real life or Second Life and this Bare skin was just perfect for me.

I also couldn't resist Leagues new release, the Faux Fur Pea Coat. You get three, one full colour and two with gradient shading at the bottom. They are gorgeous and snugly, just right for our winter wardrobes.

Winter Wonderland

I love my little piece of Second Life.  Ayla and I just turned the sim into a temporary winter wonderland for a traditional white Christmas season.  As if she read our minds, Olaenka Chesnokov of oOo Studio just released some fun wintery poses and props.  Clay and I are ready to kick off down the hill on a prop sled in the top picture.  He got a new cozy sweatshirt from Kal Rau for the occasion! My new goodies are the Gacha FATEwear scarf from The Arcade, and brilliant boots from Monso that are available at December's Collabor88.  They come in men's sizes too!

I'm not known for my balance, as my close friends know, but I thought I'd attempt to skate anyway.  OOPS!

Together for Sway

Sway Dench is one of the grids most respected designers and just recently she found out that she needs an operation for a brain tumor. Friends and fellow designers have banded together to raise funds so that when she is in recovery and unable to work on Second Life, her sim will be safely funded.  Please take some time to visit and donate to this worthwhile cause where you will find many of your favourite designers who have kindly donated their items for Sway. You will find these angels in the picture above there too. They are just darling and will add that finishing touch to your Christmas decor.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge - Madder Lake Deep

Lake sounds like a blue, doesn't it?  Not this color, though.  I love this deep reddish hue!  It didn't take me long to find my Madder Lake Deep - coldLogic's new party dresses offered the perfect shade.  I think this is my favorite color yet!

I can't believe there are only two more weeks to go in this year long challenge.  I'm going to need a new challenge when this one is over.

Holiday Blue

I'm not sad, honestly.  I was just trying to come up with a catchy title and I'm wearing a blue sweater.  I've done way too much shopping lately in Second Life.  In my defense, it's all so GORGEOUS and at least some of it is on sale!  The Secret Store belted sweater and the Yummy Accessories ring are from Collabor88, which is freaking awesome this month.  The pose from Label Motion and the brilliant scarf from Auxiliary are on sale for The Dressing Room Fusion.

Not on sale, but no less awesome, are the leather skirt and suede over-knee boots from BaiasticeLelutka just released four new hairs and I had to have them all, of course.  My Maitreya handbag has been in my inventory for months, but it's an item I turn to again and again.

If you're a Second Life shutterbug and are looking for a place to take wintery photos, you should check out The Small Town of Green where I took this photo.  It is photographer friendly and the picture possibilities are many.

This gorgeous dress can be yours if you look hard enough. It's 22769's gift for the With Love Hunt which is well under way.

I accessorised with jewelry from Noodles and you can find them in a range of colours at this months Collabor88. For the rest, you know where to look!

The Kelpie's Bridle

Evie Miles blogged her new design for Zodiac, here at Evies Closet, and when I saw this gorgeous bridle I had to have one for myself.

Two Make a Heart, See?

Awww, this sweet couple pose from oOo, her gift for the With Love Hunt, made my heart melt when we tried it.  What a darling tableau!  Clay really is the sort of sweetheart that would turn my candy cane into a heart, so it suits us.  We're getting into the Christmas spirit with the Cheeky Pea antler tree available at this month's Men's Dept.  My outfit, hair and jewelry, and the mesh house in the background are from December's Collabor88.  Clay still looks handsome and fashionably current in his Fatewear finery.  Joy to the world!

Baby It's Cold Outside

Christmas came early last weekend and I went wild grabbing everything up from all the events and sales! Of course Collabor88 for December began on Saturday and I was like a child in a sweetie shop. Not only that but the newly launched The Dressing Room Fusion began too. Almost everything I am wearing in this picture are from both places. Aren't those Slink boots to die for? I got them in ALL the colours!

We've Been Good This Year (mostly)

It's the one-year anniversary of Double Exposure, the collaborative blog of Dolly Baroque and Ayla Qinan.  How better to celebrate than to wear the same outfits (on purpose for once) and pose together using oOo's fabulous friends poses.  It's a wonder we have hair in these pics, we suffered so, keeping everything rezzed and gridline free.  Lots of blogs do interviews so on our first anniversary we thought we'd interview each other.  We do have the right not to answer and to ask for a lawyer if necessary.

Dolly:  So Ayla, what surprised you most about becoming a blogger?

Ayla:  What really surprised me was how bad my photography skills were when I look back to the start of our blog. I thought I was quite good but jeezo, how wrong was I? I think every blogger improves with time though, as they discover new tricks and find their own style. I think we have both improved immensely, and I love that we have our own unique styles but blend beautifully, making the blog consistent.

Ayla:  Dolly, what do you enjoy most about blogging?

Dolly:  It varies with my mood.  Sometimes I love putting an outfit together just so, and showing it off with a pic.  Other times it's about delivering on a challenge, like the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge.  Sometimes it's all about a pose that inspires me, or a new SL photography technique that I want to try.  I'm like the furthest thing from an expert with photo editing, but I kind of like messing around and trying things in GIMP.  I enjoy writing, but for blog posts I think the photos are the story, so I focus on them and keep the writing to a minimum.  And last but far from least, I'm very gratified when anyone tells me they like one of my blog posts.

Dolly:  Do you have a favorite blogger, Ayla? Other than us, of course.

Ayla:  I read the feeds and see many fantastic bloggers but there is one blog I subscribed to because of its quirky nature and its kookie cute style. I always look forward to getting the e-mail from Not Quite Pink because I know there is going to be something blogged that I need and Magenta DeVinna makes me smile.

Ayla:  How about you, Dolly? Who's your favorite blogger?

Dolly:   I'm predictable in that I never fail to read top fashion blogs like Strawberry Singh and Gogo's Juicybomb.  I like seeing what they post, how they put looks together, and I really like how their photos have a consistent style - each in her own way.  Neva Crystall's posts in How Neva Sees It make my jaw drop.  I wish I had 1/10th of the talent she displays in every carefully constructed picture.  And again, she's consistent in her style which to me is a blogger/photographer strength - and one that I lack.  I can dream though.

Dolly: What's your favorite type of thing to blog?  And what's the blog post you're most proud of and why?

Ayla:  Hmm, I do love my more risque posts. I like to show my sultry, seductive side with maybe a little hint of naughty. The blog I am most proud of has to be Wistful.  It's not spectaular, I'm no editing wizard, but I love the softness and the peacefulness of it. Also, it's the blog post that earned me most hits ever!

Dolly:  Oh, that pic for the Wistful post was gorgeous.  I loved it.  But really, what's with the naked pics?  Are you some sort of perv? (wink, wink)

Ayla:  Yes, yes I am.  The fact that naked pics get the most hits gives me a pervy little thrill.  And we both know you're a perv, too. You're just more embarrassed about it.

Dolly:  What? Me a perv? (cough, cough) Time to change the subject.  Would you prefer a less bossy blogging partner?

Ayla:  No, I just ignore you when you get bossy, like you are being right now about this blog post!!

Ayla:  OK, this is probably the most important question of all.  What drives you crazy about me?

Dolly:  This is where I ask for a lawyer, right?

Sometimes I Forget How Special Second Life Can Be

We rail against Second Life's shortcomings plenty.  We lag, we crash, we get weird gridlines in our pictures - but something draws us there and keeps us coming back.  For me it's my friends and the creativity that is all around me in-world.  Every item in this photo - the grass, buildings, rocks, trees, to the pose of my avatar, the windlight setting, not to mention skin, hair, and clothes - is someone's vision.  I put them together and snap a picture to share my vision, too.  Just doing a quick count, I think there are works of at least 17 different creators represented in this photo.  I've been in Second Life long enough that I sometimes forget just how unique it truly is.

Heart - trees and rocks
Rustica - rocks and grasses

Hangover and the Walk of Shame

It's the holidays! Time for parties, pretty dresses and accessories, overindulging, tiptoeing home the next morning with a hangover and wondering if you did what you think you did last night...

Well, maybe not that last part, but coldLogic just released some pretty new dresses to get us in the holiday spirit!  And what goes best with a party dress? Maxi Gossamer's jewelry and her new purse that is now available at FaMeshed.

December FaMeshed

I love the monthly event, FaMeshed, and I've stocked up on some of December's goodies.  This jacket/blouse combo is a new release for FaMeshed from Baiastice.  I matched it with Baiastice's leather skirt (sold at the main store) which fits perfectly under the jacket.  The earrings are Maxi Gossamer's FaMeshed offering.  I snap up anything from Maxi Gossamer and I haven't been sorry once.

I have some lovely skins in my inventory but I couldn't help but add Glam Affair's new Amberly skin.  I feel so PRETTY!

My Favourite Distraction

These phone poses are new from Estetica and are lots of fun. There are 10 poses in all and the phone prop and a face animator are included too. I don't have much else to say this today. It's the 1st of December and I am dying to visit all the advent stores and the gacha event, oh and Fameshed. It's going to be a busy afternoon!

Getting Down to Business

coldLogic's newest release includes combo jackets and shirt tops suitable for the executive woman in Second Life (remember all the CEO titles we used to see?).  The pinstripe skirt matches and fits flawlessly beneath the shirt.  I'd feel totally professional and serious if it weren't for the slightly disheveled untucked shirt that makes me think of a woman leaving her lover in the foggy morning hours.  OK, it could just as easily be toddlers, but where's the romance in that?

We're Homeward Bound

I snuck round to Dolly's for inspiration today. Her land is right next door to me and she has all sorts of props and poses dotted around the place. In the first picture I borrowed her horse from Focus Poses. Isn't she a pretty thing?

Now to the clothes. I am a bit behind with all the events and sales, so the other day I did a little catching up and I landed at FAIR where I got this snugly coat from Zenith.  The scarf is from last winter but it is still available FREE at Mr Poet  (You'll find it upstairs). It's colour change and definitely one of my favourite winter warmers. The rest of my outfit you can find credited below.

In this second picture I used a pose I got from Adorkable at last years winter gatcha event. It is quite serene and reflective and it gave me the idea to capture that against water.

Strike a Pose from Del May

I rather like the idea of highlighting poses in my blog posts and I'm not quite ready to give it up since I've barely scratched the surface of good posemakers.  I look for poses that convey action and personality.  They also have to work with whatever I'm trying to highlight in a photo. If the pose manages to catch the eye, all the better.

A few posemakers take poses a step further into artistry, and most famous among them is probably Del May.  Take a look at her Flickr photostream - it's amazing! 

My plan was to highlight the latest Truth hair, Jade; the Belleza skin, Wynter; and the rigged mesh hands from SLink (which are now part of my basic avi).  The pose ended up as the star of the pic (at least for me).  I'm not claiming that by using Del May's poses I can create works of art.  But her poses do inspire me to improve my photos with out-of-the-ordinary thinking about our digital forms.

Sway's Gacha Clocks

A new round of The Arcade Gacha begins in December, which creeps scarily close! I have always been a great admirer of Sway Dench's work since I stumbled across her store years ago. The textures, attention to detail and pure awesomeness of her work never fails us!

These 'Spirit' clocks are so damned adorable and you will get your chance to win them soon when The Arcade Gacha opens. Bye bye Linden dollars!

Winter Warmers

Dolly and I popped over to The Dressing Room and the Dressing Room Blue yesterday to see what bargains we could snap up.  I filled my boots and here I am wearing a chunky woolen sweater from TDR. You get two for the price of one, cheap as chips! The other is blocked rainbow colours. The hat hair and necklace are from TDRB and the outfit came together when I threw on jeans from Decoy and my G Field boots. Details below.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge - Tangelo by Dolly

I love tangelo, it's such a lively color!  This Maitreya dress nails the color and makes me feel all stylishly casual - or is it casually stylish?  The pose - that's right, it's still pose week here - is from Apple Spice who offers naturalistic poses that manage to display real attitudes.

Fifty Linden Friday Bargains

April and I went Fifty Linden Friday shopping today and I want to show you our favorite bargains in a quick post.  We got the Belleza Wynter skin and both styles of hat hair from LaViere.  What a deal for 50 Lindens!  Feeling pretty and spiffy in our new skin and hair, we posed for a quick snap with oOo's Friends poses.

This gorgeous gown is available at the Around The World event from Apple May Designs. It comes in various colours, including black and red, but I bought the ivory to match my innocent personality!

Just Hooping Along

Doesn't this pose make you want to move your hips?  My dear friend AprilMae Devin has lots of animations in her store, Alterior Motion, that make me want to move my hips (but most of them are naughty).  She is kind enough to make poses, too (when I beg).  I adore the movement she manages to imply in static poses, and her hooping set of 10 poses and hoops is full of fun and energy.

Is That a Wrinkle?

I'm dimly aware of a push on Plurk to highlight pose makers and poses this week in blogs, and that's a wonderful notion.  This pose and mirror prop is from Estetica, a relatively new (to me) pose maker, who clearly understands how to breathe life into an avatar.  And no - Dolly has no wrinkles, but her typist has a few!

52 Weeks of Color - Barleycorn by Dolly

I'm not sure whether my Maitreya dress or my Focus Poses horse is closer to the color Barleycorn.  I'll accept either.  I don't keep track of the week numbers, but I think we're into the home stretch on Luna Jubilee's year long challenge, and I think I'll miss it.  Looking ahead only to next week, though, the color challenge is a very bright orange called Tangelo.  Wonderful!

I bless the rains down in Africa

I've not been able to blog all week and I've a lot of catching up to do, especially for the Around The World Event that began on the 15th and the Gallery Gift Shop which started it's new round for this month.

The Lynette outfit from 22769 at TGGS, is a boho/hippie flavored combination comprising of flared pants and a blouse. I love the rich earthy colours, the top shows off ample midriff and the flowing pants are lush!

The hair is available at Around The world, it's from Amacci and I have changed from my usual brunette to a shade that would blend with the rest of my outfit. I just hope Dolly doesn't go in a huff with me for going red again!

Lastly the pose is the mini series, Strength, from !Bang and it's also on sale at Around The World.

The rest of the details you can find below. Ta ta for now.

Love You!

There's a man in Second Life who gets me.  He appreciates the fuss over my hair, he doesn't roll his eyes when I change my hairstyle 10,000 times a week.  I got mesh ears and he knew I'd need new hair to show them off, so he made some.

We don't communicate much.  I pay him money, he sends me hair - gorgeous hair.  Every once in awhile he gives one of my Flickr photos a pink star which gives me a bigger thrill than I like to admit.

He recently named a hair Dolly - for me?  Probably not, but I bought it and am blogging it here along with another new favorite, Cyanne! 

I love you, Truth Hawks!

Elevator Music

How often does this happen to you?  You step into the elevator in your cute new skimpy dress, avoiding eye contact with the hot guy behind you.  Humming to the elevator version of "Come Away with Me" you touch the number of the floor you want, careful to observe the proper etiquette by turning your eyes studiously to the lights above the door that will flash the floor numbers as you pass them.

All the while, you're blushing about a wild fantasy that popped into your head about the guy behind you.  Too bad he'll never know what you're thinking.  He might actually be flattered.

I've had this sexy and fun elevator pose prop from oOo Studio for nearly a month and finally talked Clay into putting on some clothes to take the photo.  He stays naked most of the time thinking that will stop me from taking him shopping.  It doesn't.  I just think "Poor guy needs clothes. We'll go shopping."
