Flower in the Carribean

Watercolor Steps

It's been a hectic month already, but I pulled this outfit together towards the end of the Fashiontropic event and I loved the effect - as did a handful of people in the dance and activity sim I found myself in. You can't tell due to my angle, but the Caribbean Resort has dance clubs, boats and helicopters to travel around in, and is clearly one of the destination places of a bunch of new avatars. There are a ton of couples dance balls floating around all over, and also some cuddle spots. You can also, with some judicious angling and a touch of derendering, snap some clean pictures. One feature the ism has which I wish more seaside ones did - the land slopes gently under the water so there is a wide area one can stand in before it bottoms out. This makes using reflections a breeze - one can use the hover to fine tune it and catch some lovely shots. I'm a big believer in using Second Life's natural water to augment pictures - the effect can be really amazing and add a lot of life to your pictures. The trick is a windlight that isn't too misty, and the right reflection on the water and you, too, can look like your avatar is melting into swirls of brilliant color.
