Video Killed The Ember

Video Blogging In SL. ( And no that is not what I am trying to teach, please read on.)

Well, I did my first & maybe my only video blog today.  Might be the last  if the response is negative. 

I managed to babble all through it,  get a frog in my throat and say UM about 100 times. I waffled on so much that it cut me off mid sentence before I would wrap it up. Ah well, this is just how Ember rolls.

I used a free program called  BandiCam. I was trying to get it to work from 8:30 am till 12:30 PM I was about to give up when finally I asked for help.
 Kilolo Jenkins from the SL Bloggers Support Group helped me!! Thank you so so much , you saved me ♥
(Just maybe not my readers or Flickr followers )
VIDEO - https://www.flickr.com/photos/emberrandt/33209219320/in/dateposted/ The video itself is about different lighting and shadow tools I use in my Firestorm Viewer when setting up to take a photo. If the response is positive I will try again as I always have some little tip I want to share.

The photo is Raw (just cropped.)  The video (If I can get it to upload will be on my Flickr Here - https://www.flickr.com/photos/emberrandt/ 

Please leave a message here if you would like me to do more or if I just need to shut up already.
 Ember ♥
If you watched the video I mentioned a photographer / blogger named Daeberethwen Arbenlow who made their own light and videoed how it was done.  I learned a lot so check her out here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDouons9ODc
I did not even realize she has done a similar video to the one I made but hers I am sure is super great and explained things really well! (Sorry, not my intention to try to copy)

In the pink!

Hello lovely readers.

I have a few events to talk about today. I will try to keep it brief.

  • Hairology - This event runs from the 10 - 30th of the month. The hair in this photo is by [Runaway] and I absolutely LOVE it. Not sure I want to even take it off like ever.  I need to mention, [Runaway] has included an Omega hair base HUD in the packs.  Once worn with your correct Omega HUD you can just click the colour you need & BOOM matchy nice hair base! It's Perfect!

  • Skin Fair 2017 - It's open now! March 10 - 26. Make sure you take off mostly everything as there is a script limit. I mentioned the other day how I grabbed the new Lona Bento Head by Catwa.        Well I also wanted to mention that I did nothing to the sliders on her. The shape I am wearing is the one that came in the box. It is love @ first sight for Lona & I.  Also if you click this photo it will take you over to Flickr. There you can click the image to enlarge it and see my beautiful eye shadow by Alaskametro. Not only is it lovely, it's also very well priced @ only 75L!!
Ember's finally found herself, for now anyway πŸ˜„

  • Mesh Body Addicts Bi - Monthly - This round runs from March 10 - 30th & You can find this totally cute top there by a designer called Cuddle Up. The pink tone on this matched well with my  hair.  Am I the only one who would match things to a hair colour? Also, check out these thigh high ribbon flip flips by Pink Pearl Designs, I think they're pretty neato.

Happy Shopping!
Ember. πŸ’•

Skin Fair Is Coming March 10th!

It's coming March 10th!

The Skin Fair 2017 is presented by:
Pale Girl Productions & Esode

The Skin Fair 2017 is sponsored by :
Carol G Tattoo
TAOX Tattoo

 -Dates: March 10 - March 26
 - Every store will showcase new and exclusive Skins, makeups, tattoos, and mesh body parts!

🌟They will enforce low scripts so please take off all you can to shop, save the agony of being ejected after trying to get in for an hour.🌟

 Today I am showing off my Bento Chloe Head by LeLutka.
 Just in case you have yet to purchase, you can find her at the fair while you are shopping yourself into the ground :)

Also I brought the new Catwa Bento Lona head! She is super cute & I only dawdled about a minute and a half before tossing all my lindens at the vendor.

I skinned them with Glam Affair. I love this skin maker, have for years even before they were Glam Affair.  They always have something new coming out that's a little bit quirky and fun. The moles on my Chloe head for example. Those you can also find at the Skin fair, along with the Cate skin I wore on that head as well. 

🌟 As usual, my photos are edited and I have used strong wind lights. Please go in and DEMO before purchase. Grab an applier out of your inventory I know you have one and apply it to the demo to get a true feel for the style. 🌟

 I will post the land mark on the 10th.
But until then join the Pale Girl Productions Demo group!

So silly RL story. 
I was working on this photo last night for a long time as I couldn't get the shadow's right  
(Kept having big half moons from my lashes.) Anyway, I was hyper focused on my screen. 

Finally was about to give up when my husband wandered over to see what the heck I was doing.
(Maybe he thought I was going to be sucked into my monitor  like poltergeist.)  
I turned my monitor around to show him what the heck I was doing & he said, 
"Humm, that's really good, almost looks real." 
So I mentally fist pumped cause, yay he praised me! 

This photo is the result and really, him liking it is the biggest pink star I will ever receive. I hope you like it a little :)

About what I am wearing.

  • The skin & Eye shadow are @ Enchantment right now. This event ends tomorrow and you really should wander over if you haven't had the chance. They always theme around a different fairy tale and this one is Cinderella. The SIM is beautiful! 

  • The headpiece was gifted to me by one of my newer friends Danni. It is @ The Arcade & She got in already the lucky bugger! Thank you Danni! 

  • My Nail Polish, Gloves & Pose are @ Whore Couture 7  . This event has just begun on March 1st & runs until the 31st I believe.  There are SOO many really cool things here & not all of it is super Whorish so worth a look for sure!

  •  All items worn are listed & credited with Slurl's embedded ( Teleports). Just click the coloured text and off you go!
No matter where you choose to shop, I wish you all a happy weekend! Ember

2 Free Hairs On The Enchantment Hunt

Enchantment is almost over but before they pack up this Cinderella round make sure you do the Hunt!

I did it myself and it took me about an hour total.
Grab a friend, jump on a voice chat, help each other out and scoop up those beautiful gifts & have a blast!

After you're done you might want to keep that voice call, find a nice sand box or place to unpack and sort out that inventory. It's always easier when you've got your friends about to make it less of a chore.

Look below the photos for all credits & Taxi's.

LeLutka's Chloe Bento Mesh Head Review.

LeLutka Website - http://lelutka.com/blog/
LeLutka Main Store - http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LeLutka/126/104/22

I don't know if you remember me babbling on about LeLutka's Simone Bento head a while back? 

Well I hummed & hawed over it as I saved up my cash & then my friend showed me a photo of the new Bento Chloe head.

"Sorry Simone, I have a love affair to begin, just not with you." xoxo

  • I ran full speed and grabbed up Chloe after making sure to Demo her of course. She looks a bit younger than Simone and well, I just adore her. 

  • The cost is 5,000L and comes complete with all the animations, make up's, tattoo's *Think freckles, blush & Henna * Loads of stuff already in the HUD.  You know, usually for me to spend this type of money on anything makes me almost weepy for days.  Not this time. I am very happy with Chloe. 

  • Not sure if either of those are your style? Don't worry.  There are a lot of coming soon spaces beside both Simone & Chloe. & Hopefully The new ones will  not end my love affair
 πŸ Ÿ First photo is bare except I could not figure how to reset  her brows :S 🠟 

🠟This photo is with Glam Affair's newest Applier that can be found @ Uber.
 I used the blend function to lighten the colour of the shadow. *Neat trick* 🠟

🠟Last one is how I have reshaped the head using the sliders to make it feel more like me. 
Yes of course it would not be Ember if I did not edit the crap out of this photo ♥ 🠟

My LeLutka Bento head Chloe Review


  • Bento - Here again I had great fun changing up the look of this head via the sliders.
  • Skin tonesLeLutka uses the same Glam Affair skin tones as my Maitreya body. 
  • Eye Control - This feature on the HUD is super easy to use. You can cross them, or pose them however you like really.
  • Make up layers - you can use them in multiple areas. Just check out the update info here http://lelutka.com/blog/bento-head-updates/
  • Ease of useThis HUD so far has been very simple and straight forward. 
  • Omega Compatible - Now you can wear your make up  :)

  • Animations - There are SO many & that is awesome but I have no idea if there is a pause to make photography easier. Anyone know?
  • Eyelashes - These ones are really good but I would love the option to turn off the bottom lash separately.
Hope this was helpful & hopefully someone can let me know if the eyelash thing is an option as well as a pause button.
Don't forget to Demo!
