Exposing Exposeur Logo

I’ll be posing forever with all the marvelous poses and props I picked up at the POSE FAIR 2013!  Some I purchased, some were free, some exclusive

and some I had to make a mad dash to their shop to select others I fancied!

Exposeur places you into a precious pose when you hold the original rez box adorned with a lifelike dummy character parading from it’s package.

Morea Designs always holds a special place in my heart and prompts a quick touch of a “click” to drape myself with.  This minty gown ensemble coordinated perfectly with

Virtual Impressions’ MARISSA Pearl & Diamond Necklace and Earrings.

With a tap to the HUD you can interchange the colors of the pearls and stones and much to my delight, there is a large selection of choices.

Rag Dollz has continued to impress me with a variety of designs to their styles, so I remembered they created a wonderful minty teal mask tattoo for their “Teal Nights” dress.

And to make the pose and ambiance of the photograph “pop”, this sassy hair style entitled FLAMMA by Tukinowaguma melted into the setting of the

EXPOSEUR LAB BACKGROUND I created especially for this sequel of photographs.

My cherished friend, Alyssalillian, gifted me these lovely eyes she created with an astonishing human realness called ZC The Look – Impressionism Eyes3.  My ring holds a tender memory as a gift from my past, therefore the creation by Mistwood never leaves my finger.

Using my imagination I plunged deep into the mysterious golden forest to set my Clockwork Bird free.

✯ ☾ ☂ ☽ ✯

I know why the caged bird sings

Only joy comes from song

He’s so rare and beautiful to others

Why not just set him free!

As I heard thunder and lightning outside my bedroom window along with the howling of the vigorous wind ~ my next pose idea came to me with exposeur’s APRIL SHOWERS VINTAGE 3 collection of alluring poses.

Changing into another of my own designs ROSEATE DANCER FAIRY, I flew away to paradise to dance….ahhheeem….pose in the rain!

I spend hours upon hours in photoshop creating my own textures and making sure they are crisp and detailed.

My buyer’s responses have been wonderful!

And every time I have one of my best friends IM me after they try them on, I am delighted with words such as:  WOW, SUCH DETAIL!

I am in love with this hair design by Vanity Hair entitled “Folie D’ete” !  Perfect for an evening out dancing or playing in the rain as it wafts so sublte yet strong in the wind!

These dazzling high heel shoes were created by Shoenique Designs called “Cinderella Diamond”!

Bambi's Mayan Pose Logo

A few days ago after a long day of driving and making my way to a fresh hotel room in real, I jumped into my favorite life: Second Life.

Note To Self: REZ REZ REZ!

I was still rezzzzzzzzzing my many items from the Pose Fair 2013 and the Hollywood Event with a notion to arrange a set of photographs

while wearing articles from Kastle Rock’s seductive “Maya” Silks Gown entitled “Earthen”!

Perfect for such a down-to-earth gal such I prefer to be!

Their colorful designs have a touch of jazzy, fancy and snazzy with a wistful flare!

In a snap of a pixel finger I became a Mayan Drifter in search of the perfect district to embark upon.

With new poses in my mind I slipped out to Fotoscope where my photo affair began.

Mayan Drifter~ I'm Still Here ~ Pose: Grafica's Marionetta-#001 ~ Attire:  Kastle Rock's Maya Earthen

Mayan Drifter~ I’m Still Here ~ Pose: Grafica’s Marionetta-#001 ~ Attire: Kastle Rock’s Maya Earthen

I say

It’s in the arch of my back,

The sun of my smile,

The ride of my breasts,

The grace of my style.

I Am Woman

Phenomenally.

Fern Border

I could hear in the ocean breeze a faint sound calling me…

Dolphins dance and dolphins shimmer,

See their spirit grow and glimmer.

Swim on the dolphin, reach to the top,

Never look back and never stop.

The sea is calling, so dive on in,

Wave that tail and raise a fin.

Give a jump for fun and glee,

Then get on up and dance with me!

 ~~~

In such a delight I found myself dancing with the dolphins and whales in the pale moonlight

and paused to pose with Grafica’s Isadora-#007; such a heavenly pose ~ one of my fav’s!

Dolphin Dance ~ Pose: Grafica's Isadora-007

Dolphin Dance ~ Pose: Grafica’s Isadora-007

THERE ARE NO RULES when it comes to art of photography, graphics or guise….

and as you can see from below, Bambi follows no rules.

~ I don’t make the rules, but I make them follow me! ~

(giggles)

LIFE IS SHORT, BREAK THE RULES,

FORGIVE QUICKLY, KISS SLOWLY,

LOVE TRULY, LAUGH UNCONTROLLABLY,

AND NEVER REGRET ANYTHING THAT MADE YOU SMILE!

Break The Rules ~ Pose: HelaMiyo's Against A Wall #1

Break The Rules ~ Pose: HelaMiyo’s Against A Wall #1

So to wind down my dawn-to-dark prop and pose juncture, I felt the need to immerse my wee little self into a bubbly dip.

And remember….

DON’T arrive at the end well preserved,

But skid in sideways,

Champagne in one hand

Chocolate in the other

Body all dolled up,

Screaming

WOO HOO ~ What A Ride!

White A Ride ~ by Bambi Chicque ~ Prop: Sine Wave Champagne Dance

This venue is a must “See-&-Do” if you love photography, props, poses and a bit of adventure.

Since posing and props are among my favorite things “TO DO” and buy in Second Life, you know I had to spend a few hours checking out the event POSE FAIR 2013 the very first day it opened!

I felt like the lady in the Mervyn’s Department Store commercials standing at the window chanting “Open Open Open”!

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Solace%20Island/131/134/25?

Did I say a few hours? Yes-sireeee I did just that!

Quite to my pleasant surprise a lot of the pose creators prepared some free poses & props!  I also snatched up as much of the “exclusive” items as I could when I saw they were created specifically for this event!

The purpose, of course, of the Pose Fair is to introduce you to our fine creator’s and their items for sell.

Therefore, after the event, I made my way to ELEPHANTE  to purchase the below exquisite “Cheated Hearts” mirror pose & prop since I had purchased the lovely Ms. West (Mae West) dress ensemble at the HOLLYWOOD event and felt these two were made to match!

After I posed and posed and posed for the photo shoot ~ I had another spot in mind that I had seen a few times presented by my friend BigMike.  I sure hope he doesn’t mind that I tp’d to his beautiful castle where I was cheerfully greeted by the most precious fairies “Volturian”!  So after the chatting and fairy flying fiasco with these little darlings ~ I found myself enthralled on another shopping spree and purchased these for myself!

Linden Linden ~ easy come ~ easy go!
