what is your current favourite show? I am swept away by Tim Burton’s Wednesday series for Netflix. So I had to turn Graz into my version of Wednesday for the blog… It kind of started while still wearing yesterday’s outfit and remembering that, before I adjusted my shape to the wider mouth which I usually do like on my avie, the lips on Avalon with the Sol skin from Guapa had a more or less Wednesday-ish pout. So that was the start to see how far I could pull it off.
I think I make a cute Wednesday, wearing Guapa’s Sol skin on LeLUTKA‘s Avalon, with Izzie‘s smokey smeared mascara and Temizi’s chin cleft. My hair is called Wednesday (obviously) and is from Rama Salon, and I am wearing Violent Seduction’s regicide dress. I still think they pulled a shitty stunt at The Arcade, making the left shoe and the right shoe, as well as the left and right sock, and the left and right laces separate purchases, but I love this dress and it does make me think of the one Wednesday was wearing at the Rave’N
above is the unedited, raw from sl version, below, I did some minimal editing!
WordPress wants to know what my feelings are towards meat today, but I want to talk to you about AI! It’s no secret that AI “art” is on the rise. These engines have massive learning power and they get better and better all the time. The first one I dabbled with was Art breeder, and then of course now you have the prompt based Mid Journey. Mid Journey requires Discord though and i don’t know man, I kind of hate discord. it’s too much for me. But some SL creators use it to generate images for their SL art creations and what i see there, is that also Mid Journey is in full development and gets better all the time.
However, I want to share with you today Lensa. Lensa is an app for your smart phone that lets you generate AI based images “Avatars” based on a set of photos you upload to it. it’s a paid service, but a lot of fun to try out if you can spare a couple of bucks.
these are some of the first that I did, and I can tell you, it’s addictive! In the second set, I added some RL imagesfrom myself and these are some of the results
and then the one I did today, a mix of SL and RL images, which ended up looking nothing like either Grazia, or my RL , but they are still pretty cool!
So yeah, turns out Covid finally got me! Never was a test result in faster and with brighter red stripes! It’s funny because the only thing that gave it away, or rather, what made me take a test last night was a little cough which didn’t sound like my usual one. I mean, in this time of year, I am pretty much always feeling sick or having some kind of cold, so feeling poorly doesn’t usually stop me. But because of that odd cough I figured, let’s put that stick up my nose so I can be sure there is nothing wrong. And here I am… in the guest room, isolating, to avoid that my SO, who is still testing negative, doesn’t get extra exposure. He’s immunocompromised, so we have been extremely careful over the past years.
Anyway. I kind of like it to make the pretty pretty skins of SL look less than gorgeous so for today, I continued on yesterday’s path. Starting out with LeLUTKA‘s Briannon (50% off all heads this weekend only for Black Friday) and Glam Affair‘s Sloane (ditto, 50% off for Black Friday, storewide), the Orpheus eyes from Gloom en Opale x Chain‘s Meisell hair, I have been adding tired/sick/poorly/ problem skin layers to my heart’s content! Are you ready? Here we go!
Oh, before we go there, the info for the Black Friday Sales, comes from Seraphim’sUltimate Black Friday sales list! It’s huge! Click on the image above to go directly to the list!
that out of the way, let’s then finally focus on the layers! I went with Izzie’s and Saxo mostly! Both stores currently have 50% off on selected items!
By Izzie’s: natural eyeshadow rose, 75% opacity; 01 frown lines 40%, 01 Forehead lines 40% and Blemishes 70%. By Saxo: Tired eyes soft Flu face (V1, yesterday I wore V2, which is newer), the Cheek dimple soft and the Chin dimple soft. To finish it off, I added The Skinnery‘s Wornout eyebags and Ladybird‘s Peony chapped lips.
For clothing, I opted for this totally warm and very funny Long & Home sweater by Sorumin, I love Yule pigs! Yule is a mid-winter tradition older than Christmas. A feast dedicated to Freyr, God of Yule and Fertility. Many traditions stemming from Yule have been incorporated into Christmas, to make the Christian feast more palatable to pagans. How’s that for appropriation? Anyway, I am rambling. Under the sweater, I even added Erratic‘s racerback (BOM) tank because you know how those Xmas sweaters are always itchy? Even though you don’t see it, it’s there. I know it’s there. I feel it’s there! My pants are from the Luna Lounge set by Osmia and you can almost feel the softness of the stretchy fabric. Elastic waistband of course. I mean, I really wouldn’t know, right, but My SL, My Imagination! My sneakers are from Friday, and they are pretty much my all-time favorites. The cute heart shape on the nose always makes me smile! Finally, I added the Daisy gem studs from Yummy‘s mega Dreamy earring pack
