"Dawdler Dream" by Bambi Chicque of BamPu Legacies

“Dawdler Dream” by Bambi Chicque of BamPu Legacies

Away to the sea the Sleeping Snail watches calmly for no curse

to a folklore Princess. 

All curiosity within one’s breath and first glimpse remains etched forever

in one’s soul and memory. 

Be as slow as a snail and take pride as you enter a world of golden complex

with hints of surreal to real and back again. 

To go “as slow as a snail” is rarely considered a good thing;

yet until you enter The Sleeping Snail by Rebeca Bashly.

Spending 3 hours dangling, flying, gawking, spying and observing

did not feel like eternity as it was still not enough time spent

with a dream of a pure tangible sight to behold.

No matter which windlight you select while shooting your favorite

composed angles, you will be pleased with each shot!

I selected Earth & Sky’s “Celebrity of Broadway” Gown to wear

with HollyHood’s mesh “Miss Jay Heels” as the gown has an elegant

side view opening to show off one’s sexy legs and shoes. 

 

HollyHood creates some of the best textured shoes and boots I have seen in SL!

The Sleeping Snail is a photographer’s haven fit for a Princess

and therefore Emo-tions’s “Everlasting” jewelry collection

was the perfect choice for this shot!

A couple of days ago I raced to Emo-tions to snatch up her latest hair

“Love  ~ Miss Dream Canada”

once announced she finally had it in her shop.

Such elegance in this braided side-up-do!

And I just cannot find myself to remove

"The Ghost In Me" by Bambi Chicque

“The Ghost In Me” by Bambi Chicque

Christmas time has to be my favorite season especially since it brings

my loved ones and family together.  Recently my sister and I drove

to Turkey, Texas to lay flowers on my Mother’s, GrandParent’s &

Brother’s graves.  When I go to this small town, I call it “Home In My Heart”

since I spent almost all my summers growing up there on the farm and family

ranches.  (The famous “6666 Ranch” in Guthrie is also part of my family

~ oh the stories I can share!)

"Chasing Home" by Bambi Chicque

“Chasing Home” by Bambi Chicque

Just outside of town you can see the “modern” silo still standing

in which my GrandFather was the first in Texas to buy and use to

feed his cattle.  In town there is our famous Turkey Water Tower

hovering closely to the forever music playing Bob Wills Monument.

Every April thousands of people come to this little “ghost town” for

Bob Wills Day, bar-b-q cook offs, music, dancing in the old High School Gym

& vendors selling arts and crafts.

My Great-GrandFather and a handful of other

families settled Turkey while on their way to live in California;

traveling in covered wagons ~ but stopped for blueberries and plenty

of turkeys to hunt and decided to make this their home!

So they named the settlement Turkey!

And yes, Thanksgiving is a big ka-hoo there! LOL

"Promise Not To Fade Away" by Bambi Chicque

“Promise Not To Fade Away” by Bambi Chicque

When I dressed in this fascinating POE6 Julia Candy Cane Gown

by Kastle Rock and selected my posing area with the water tower,

I had to call my Sister and describe this scene and gown to her since

it gave me such a nostalgic feeling.

(Wait…she called me! – She is going to be reading this later today – HEHE)

My GrandMother would so love these photographs!

❋❋❋❋❋

Any time I have the opp to buy or receive “ANYTHING” from

VIOLATOR – you know my heart is pounding to show it off!

This gorgeous POE6 (Hedera) ivy-style jewelry and accessories

were the perfect items to sprinkle onto my wardrobe for these shots!

With delight, I selected Diesel Work’s POE6 Poses and actually

had a difficult time deciding which one I wanted to use

– so I used 3 out of the 4 in the gift package!

BRAVO TO THESE WONDERFUL CREATORS!

Today I’m excited to show you my entry for the 2013 Oscar Fashion Photo Contest (see photo below) which is sponsored by Sascha’s Designs and Styles by Danielle!  I first learned about this contest while visiting The Rose Theatre with a friend. So I thought I’d do a little write up real quick about The Rose Theatre / Angel Manor and plan to add more notes regarding Sascha’s Designs and Stylle immediately following.

Information regarding the contest can be viewed here:

My first visit to The Rose Theatre / Angel Manor was in November 2012 while on another “photo shoot” opp with a friend.  He suggested we visit the Rose Theatre Art Gallery in hopes to continue my inspiration and aspirations for my personal graphics artwork and future plans with it in SecondLife and my personal website.

I have a grand collection of photographs to add to my website very soon. http://tanyaelisehowardphotography.yolasite.com/

The Rose Theatre

The first area we ventured into was the Library!  I gasped at the beauty and perfect texturing throughout which resulted in excellent craftsmanship in design.  I’m quite picky about texturing myself!  There are so many rooms and areas to visit ~ it reminds me of the Smithsonian Institute in that you just can’t see it all in one day!  I had seen photographs of this amazing Library on the web in the past and was delighted to actually be inside it now!  It’s breathtaking and is a “must see” in SL!!

Angel Manor Library

We spent several hours wondering around and taking pictures before we entered the Art Gallery since I was so excited for all the beautiful and entertaining surroundings.  Once inside the Art Gallery I studied carefully the variety of art displayed with impressed thoughts and kudos in my mind for the Artists!  I hope to show my work there someday, too.

The Rose Theatre Art Gallery

I made sure to click on all the visitor information signs for their events, performance venues and art show dates.  This is when I read about the Oscar’s Photo Contest and decided right there and then to enter when the time came around again.

Beautiful stained glass windows At Angel Manor!

We went back many more times and attended an exquisite Christmas Event:  The Nutcracker Performance. I felt like I was actually living inside SL for real while gazing at the dancers and mesmerized by the music.

The Nutcracker Performance December 2012

The Nutcracker Performance December 2012

The gorgeous stage and extravagant performance hall is one of the most impressive I have seen in SL.  Quite glamorous!!  There is a sort of elegant vintage feel when you are a guest of this venue.  I hope they put on Phantom Of The Opera sometime soon, too!

The palace was built by Kaya Angel.  One of the rooms has magnificent art hanging with a photograph of Kaya and associates.  (photo to be added soon)

And so the time arrived to enter the 2013 Oscar Fashion Photo Contest and I have been a busy little bee changing into an array of evening gowns, setting up my own props at the BamPu Legacies Photography Studio and simply visiting sims to take pictures.  My friends always IM me to come play ~ but I have been on a mission for the last month to get that final photo to submit.  So, here you are!
