I’m feeling like a criminal

When a girl will break a boy just because she can

Ok so. I’m a shape snob. Maybe because I’m a shape designer. When I came back to SL in January it was a HUGE learning curve to nudge those sliders for bento heads, but I finally got it figured out…and then I rediscovered my shape snobbery.

As a sponsored blogger for the Altamura group (with awesome benefits of receiving the newest releases of bento heads and bodies) we are gifted a weekly release of mesh head, body, makeup, shape, etc. to promote for Altamura. I admittedly have a hard time with the shape releases because….have you met me? I’m a shape snob….

The release this week is the Russian Shape for Altamura group by .Viki. available at Marketplace, and I was pleasantly surprised by how in LOVE with this shape I was when I started preparing for this post.

The curves begged for lingerie, and the new Poppy Fashion release for the ROMP: Elegant Kink event worked perfectly. Lola top, panties and heels…I’m not sure why I was so surprised because¬†Poppy boasts the amazing Roslin Petion of Luxuria lingerie brand at the helm of textures for Poppy Fashion. Yes. I’m blonde. Forgive me.

This post is about embracing the unexpected. And this post is a celebration of why I LOVE blogging in SL. It’s not my shape, and not my usual bento head. It’s about a beautiful discovery, and really isn’t that was SecondLife is about? Discovering the beauty in something new? And I’m feeling like a criminal because I’m “stealing” someone else’s shape creation and it feels SO good. ūüôā

Mee Yow!

I finished tweaking my shape for the Altamura Aggie Bento head. I created a version for the Maitreya Lara body as well as the Altamura mesh body. Altamura’s torso is a bit more muscular and legs are a bit less muscular than Maitreya’s Lara, so I wanted to ensure the shape had the right proportions […]

Altamura Doll: Aggie

  I’ve been working on a shape for the Altamura Bento Head: Aggie, and I’m really liking the direction this one is going. She kind of reminds me of Kat from 10 Things I Hate About You. I usually use a WoW Skin applier on the Altamura Monique head, but I really like the skin […]

Sun Dappled

This week, the Altamura Blogger group item is a shape designed for the Monique Bento Mesh head. I’m pretty particular about shapes, and while this one isn’t really something I personally would wear in SL, it does have a certain aesthetic appeal. The enlarged and slanted eyes along with the tiny pixie nose and mouth […]
