"Garden of EVE" by Bambi Chicque

“Garden of EVE” by Bambi Chicque

 

I am a part of all I’ve met

Taping life’s journey together

Petal by petal, Angel to Angel

Forever wandering

Where frolic may engage

And memories twinkle

Beyond heroic souls

In each special place;

Upon any single day

My purpose holds

As I thrive in age.

I am a part of all I’ve met

My journey has never been better

Endlessly celebrated

Page by page;

Day after day.

by Bambi Chicque

⊱✿⊰

While I love exploring the realms of all Second Life has to offer by visiting astonishing

sims and ogling over spectacles and themed venues,

I do prefer setting out my own scenery when it comes to a focus on Designer’s reviews.

I’ve taken great care and pride in my presentation where I hope to capture

the hearts of an artist’s audience and, most especially,

to bring forth revenue and customers to the Creator’s I blog for.

This can take quite some time to do.

In fact, it can take even up to two full days to complete.

I am not one who throws on a gown, or simply pick the first pose that

my mouse bites, or runs off to a finished sim and snap a quick photo

and plop it on my blog and flickr.

Every element I select becomes an integral part of what I want to achieve.

Eyes and Nails must blend in palette, Hair and Crowns must make sense,

Skins and Tattoos should balance with my theme,

Scenery and Décor most definitely should belong to the composition,

Coloration of all items must jive, a Time Period should be present

(careful not to mix modern and medieval – yikes!),

and above all “if I don’t have it, go get it or make it”

if it helps to pull it all together.

The photo should tell a story and leave a lasting impression.

⊱✿⊰

Setting up the scenery and photographing it is only my half-way mark.

I have noooooo time to give you my photoshop and photo editing steps,

but as you can see – I spend hours perfecting each review photo!

Hence….I am proud to present a few Designers that are always tugging at my heart

with their creative designs.

While I jumped for joy to learn I am one of 6 Finalists in E.V.E’s Blogger Search,

I hoped to express exactly what is important to me when I do take on a responsibility to review.

(Good Luck to all 6!)

If you haven’t subscribed to or joined E.V.E’s Group,

now is the time to run and do it!

Noke keeps everyone informed, excited and always at the edge of their seats awaiting her news.

News….

Of her TLC and uniqueness in all she presents and constructs.

Noke has a continued love in creating more and more with her “Dystopia” pieces;

wadrobe and décor!  She currently has specials and gifts at her shop for

Group Members that you won’t want to miss.

My photo “Garden of EVE” contains some of her designs found in her shop,

specials and on marketplace.

We all have our favorite list of Designers, and Noke is one of many on mine!

And, of course, I have to mention that as much as I can talk about the superb designs

brought to us by E.V.E, let me make sure you know how much I admire {anc. Ltd}

and can say “ditto” about his work, too!

I think that’s why I mostly used their designs when I set up my scenery

for “Garden of EVE”!

And, yes!  I am in the photo! Can’t you see me?

I’m having fun frolicking with anc’s Frilled Fishies!

Thank you both for amazing me event after event,

petal by petal and angel to angel!

I met Garvie, of meadowWorks, a few years back while admiring her work

at her first shop.   She was a delight and instantly became an inspiration to me.

I took a couple of her classes at Builders Brewery, kept all my notes and embedded

every word she said into my building skills.  So with much glee,

I rejoiced once again the other day while visiting RLF H&G Expo in another

treasured conversation with her!  I had picked many review blogger packs

the day before, but needed to grab hers since I had a scene in mind and longed for

her newest and most charming “Yoga Frogs ~ A Plague” HGE Exclusive Gacha set!

(Found on Hope 5 with the other Gacha’s.)

I’ll be spreading the hopes of Yoga Frogs all over from now on!

Her exhibit is located on Hope 5 and trust me,

you will want to visit her breathtaking display……

*must run take a photo*!

 

Thank you truly, dearest Garvie!  I released the frogs!!  LOL You amaze me!

Other items I wanted to set out was Magnus Opus’ “Hope Blocks”

and Hanaya’s “Forest Clearing Gazebo”!

I fell in love with their colors and designs the moment I saw them!

Perfect attraction for your home and garden!

"Fantasies Of Tandy - Tandy Leather & Fur Gown" by Bambi Chicque

“Fantasies Of Tandy – Tandy Leather & Fur Gown” by Bambi Chicque

“If I know a song of Africa, of the giraffe and the African new moon lying on her back,

of the plows in the fields and the sweaty faces of the coffee pickers,

does Africa know a song of me?

Will the air over the plain quiver with a color

that I have had on,

or the children invent a game in which my name is,

or the full moon throw a shadow over the gravel of the drive that was like me,

or will the eagles of the Ngong Hills look out for me?”

“When you have caught the rhythm of Africa,

you find out that it is the same in all her music.”

~ Karen Blixen, Out Of Africa

∻⊰ ☆ ⊱∻

While creating a scene for my photo and ad, as I usually do,

the winds of whimsical lingered throughout and I decided

to make this one available for YOU!

Among my favorite colors, such as teals and turquoise, coppers and golden hues

capture the spirit of my heart when designing.

I worked hard to create a glimmering leather gradient for the gown

and perfected a soft golden fur for the stole and lower ruffled skirt!

I hope it’s pleasing to you, too!

I am on a roll with designing whimsical hats since I made out like a bandit

during Art In Hats where I was in the top sales list!

I love this precious baby elephant laying down snacking on his peanuts.

Won’t you join him?

In setting up my textures for the scene,

I wanted to magnify the fantasies of butterfly wings on the elephants.

The colors of my golden and copper tones flow flawlessly throughout

all the items available in this scene!

I will create more textures for my

“Blown Away Tree” for a later day,

for now this one coordinates with my

“Tandy Elephant Safari Scene & Blown Away Tree” Full Set.

These are now available at my BamPu Legacies MAIN SHOP !

(Main Store is currently under construction – expect something amazing!)
