So Bizaare!

If you have noticed lately, my pics have been lacking in creativity. I have been suffering from a massive case of blogger's block. So, I went to look for my muse or something that may inspire me. Well, along came the perfect head piece, from Gyorgyna Larnia of LaGyo. I am not really supposed to show this creation yet (aka the 'Bizarre flower headpiece'), since it is for the August cycle Collabor88 and does not start until the 9th. And, I know how people do not like when 'yet-to-be released-items' are shown way in advance. However, I just could not resist wearing it for this post, since I LOVED it so much!
wetcat Flux, of WetCat Poses, also helped me out by generously sending me some of her AMAZING poses. I am a serious pose snob and her poses are so well designed and natural looking. She sells wonderful couple poses and sets as well. If you use and appreciate poses as much as I do, then I must insist that you go down and check-out her store!
Another element that helped me out with this post, were some new windlights. I normally use my own or Chic Aeon's. However, I have heard so much positive hype regarding Gogo's, of JUICYBOMB.COM, new 'Studio Windlight Settings' that I had to download them and check them out for myself! Not to mention, Gogo does not edit her pics and they always look so perfectly beautiful! For a person's pics to look that fabulous, while remaining untouched, then they have to know what they are doing. Especially when it comes to lighting! Suffice it to say, I loved all of her windlights and decided on using this blue toned windlight called 'Mela the Space Queen'. Granted, these were made for studio use and I have only used them in my studio thus far. I will check-out them out 'inworld' and let you know which one's that work well in that environment too. Unfortunately, many windlights that create an amazing effect in a studio, do not work well 'inworld'. All of JUICYBOMB.COM - Studio Windlights can be found here for download:  http://juicybomb.com/2012/07/16/juicybomb-com-studio-windlight-settings/ There are instructions for loading them into your viewer and also unedited examples of each windlight for you to see.
Please take a look at my the pic and the credits for more amazing finds!
Btw, this image is edited, but I did not alter the basic foundation of the skin, clothes, hair and accessories. If  I do, I will denote what I have done ^^
