Well, before I go out and apply for sponsors in the next month or two I can't just sit and say that I know how to blog a good outfit. My blog won't just be about fashion, so don't go running the other way. But it'd be nice to get through to practice my stuff on some awesome brands the way I was able to help bloggers when I had one.
You'll have to excuse me for the inability to actually get SLURLS into my blog post while I'm writing it. I"m not currently logged into the grid, and I will edit this when I'm able to get the slurls. What's a SLURL you ask (for those not on a second life that is) - it's a SECOND LIFE URL. It's a MAP link or "Taxi" to the store in question. Sometimes I've heard bloggers use marketplace links. In this instance, I'll be starting with text and marketplace links and coming back and adding SLURLS where appropriate.
Also, I was on shift at Darkstar's Speakeasy, and I guess you could say they're "SPONSORING" my blog in a way - because nobody came to my set so I went marketplace shopping. I went shopping, and I brought out my pose stand and played with my windlights I'd been creating when I was using them for my ad copies. (Speaking of which, I'll update the XML pack for those and add the google drive link in a new post soon.)
So without further interruption... Let us roll off what is worn in this photo (and what attire is not shown either, because there's a pair of pants that didn't end up in the photo). I won't add any "BAKES ON MESH" clothing that might not be to be found anymore in SL (these are items that were out before sculpted clothing was a thing) - I will add makeup or eyes that may or may not exist - because those are timeless and it's worth a try!
Location: Darkstar's Speakeasy & Voice Lounge - http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Cosmic%20DarkStarFire/200/51/3967
(POSE list coming soon, i have to roll through my pose stand to figure this one out.)
What Is Worn (Excluding Makeup/Skin/Eyes): Krankhaus Soft Hoodie (V-tech/Maitreya) - https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/krankhaus-MaitreyaV-Tech-Soft-Hoodie/16593959 Krankhaus Devilish Schoolboy Pants - https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/krankhaus-Maitreya-Devilish-Schoolboy-Pants/16575558 (Vtech/Maitreya) Olive (Hair) - Cinnamon Split

The only items without SLURLS Or MP links are the Maitreya Mesh Body and the Lelutka Erin head. Those are common enough that you can find them just by searching in the world. I Will adhere to a stricter SLURL format in the future this was just for me to play around and see how things go. Can you comment on here and let me know how you think the photography looks and how you feel the blogging should go?
This is an example of a shot I used for product ads. I realize it's extremely weird jumping from being a clothing designer to a blogger - but remember, I didn't make my own mesh. I was essentially a form of a blogger anyway lol. Again, it was one of my own windlights.
Not much more to say tonight, other than i'm done - i'm going back to FFXIV for the night. Maybe i'll write a post in the next day or so about my gaming ventures lol. I'm utterly shit at vlogs, but I should also put some tutorial videos and posts up because blogging isn't quite evident for newer users. That's for another time though.
