LeLutka Evolution Makeovers

I’m a little delayed with getting this written, since I’ve been sick, but during the Skin Fair I decided that Bre and Luke both needed LeLutka Evolution makeovers.  Partially because, you know, the newest technology so I have to get it lol, but also because it would make me fully learn BoM, to then help Luke and my friends switch over.  I’ve done a lot of tweaking since the first pic, right after I got the main parts set up aaaaand I got used to the animations HUD (I swear I need to buy a magnifying glass for the static facial poses!).  So, first round, not my favorite and a particularly unhappy looking one:

 

LeLu Evo Makeover 3 20_007

 

Luke got updated from Guy to the Evolution Skyler while Bre updated from Simone to Evolutions Erin, with updated Maitreya and Signature Gianni put on and Bakes on Mesh (BoM) turned on.  His beard is one of the added features with the head and out of a selection that LeLutka generously provided, he liked this one (and the sideburns almost meet the hairbase completely, so he was really happy with that).  I was stoked that I could still use my applier tattoo despite having BoM active, because it’s my favorite and the designer hasn’t switched to BoM yet.  Poor Luke has no tattoos yet, since no BoM ones are hitting his Celtic open-my-wallet bone. (**Update: with a few missed clicks, Luke got to add his tattoo back on despite the designer not having it as a tattoo layer!)  *grin*  I had to change to a brighter red haircolor to match my wild RL dye job, of course (too bad it wasn’t that easy to change colors IRL! lol).  He also got new glasses since the old ones don’t work well with the new “skeleton” of the Evo head.

 

After a bit of work on their shapes and a super handy guide on MP we looked a bit more like “ourselves”.  (Naria Panthar also has some great tutorials regarding BoM over on YouTube if you are a visual learner.)

And what do you do once you’ve had makeovers?  Go to Luane’s World and take sexy pictures, of course!  *grin*  She changed the regular sim over to Spring and there are so many hidden treasures in her landscaping that it is a must see destination, in my opinion!

Since I refused to take off my new overalls from Addams (and an old Sn@tch lucky board system layer top now that we’re BoM!), he went country with the Rebellion cowboy hat.  It took some head movements and perfect timing to get a good picture with both wearing cowboy hats, so over to short hair (I’m a Truth addict, so it was probably harder to decide on which hair to change to than taking the picture lol).  I used LumiPro on both avatars for the lighting (seriously look into it if you want to take pictures; it’s totally worth the cost and if the other person accepts the light balls that you can position and hide, you can light up both of you with the perfect light without face lights making the nose so prominent *grin*).  For the barn pose we used: Ardent Poses – Entrapment, with Ardent Poses – Always for the standing one, tweaked a bit with the [HD]multi bento pose HUD beta v.1.41 giving a little help for our head tilts.

 

Once he logged off and I couldn’t sleep, I headed back over to Luane’s and took a bunch of different pictures.  I had been looking on Pinterest at photoshoot ideas while on bedrest and went a bit wild trying all the different country ones I found that I had poses to accomodate.  And if you don’t have an overwhelming amount of poses to try in your inventory, Luane has a ton of items with built in poses scattered about!

It was so hard to pick favorites to share, since I had so much fun.  *grin* My top favorites are definitely the tractor and tree pictures, for sure.  If you like any items I didn’t provide SLurls for, don’t hesitate to ask in the comments and I’ll share them ASAP.  I just don’t want to overwhelm and look like a sponsored post, because this is all me (except for Luke obviously).  Luane has lots of poses at the mainstore landing spot and tons on MP, like the Heart of Gold I used, so her poses are in my top recommendations.

 

Between being sick, makeovers, BoM, and working on improving my photography, I’ve avoided sorting my inventory really well.  *grin* Oh, and one awesome tip, if you’re interested in some freebies during this crazy time of self isolation and quarantines, check out The Stay at Home Club SL.  It’ll help bloat that inventory further and designers have been super generous!!  Stay safe and healthy!

Snow Fun!

Bre and Emma had a little snow fun when they predicted a storm warning IRL (that thankfully didn’t happen here).  It’s a lot more fun to play in world and not worry about injuries or sniffles anyway.  🙂

First we played with HopScotch’s Totally Tubular pose set (not all shown).

Then it was time for Mom to try a winter sport that I’ve always wanted to try IRL, but know it’s never going to happen, via Fashiowl Poses’ Snowboard set of poses (not all shown).  I couldn’t resist a pretty snowboarding shot to finish up before Luke arrived.

Luke and I went a little romantic with SamPoses SnowMobiel 3.

We finished up the fun with Ardent Poses You Sleigh Me III, which went a little wild, but that’s what snow fun is for, right?

After all this fun it’s time to settle in and learn how to match my head and body via BoM.  I feel like a total noob all over again, so thank goodness for the favorites tab to throw on my usual body parts and take a break!  As much as I love my Maitreya body, I admit that I’m consider using one that is fully BoM compatible.  Maybe I’m just tired.  lol 😉

Wizard Inspired Scenes

I was inspired by the recent magical event and decided to do a few different scenes inspired by the Harry Potter© series.

 

I tried my hand at a backdrop gacha and won the scene from the beginning, where the Hogwarts invitations came flying out of the chimney.  For my purposes, it happened this time for a class reunion and Bre and Luke are preparing for the trip as soon as they started getting the swarm of invitations flying.

Something New Short Stacked Pose_006

For this shot I used:

The Beginning – Lovely Magic Backdrop – The Bearded Guy

Luas Magic Travel Trolley Classic

Torchi Owl Statue (in the Trolley cage)

Floorplan Leather Couch Set

*SN~ Short Stacked (AKA: Something New Props and Poses store; it’s the short set of books Bre is standing on for them to hold each other)

For Bre, other than the usual info, I used:

L&B (Lapointe Bastchild) Swear Oct GG Tank Top – Womens

TRUTH Zahlee – Redhead

Maitreya – KC – Jacy Sneakers

While Luke is in:

Stealthic – Narcotic (Unrigged)

Next, they travelled to Hogwarts utilizing the built in poses of the backdrop, although not all poses were used.

I had some fun using some Quidditch items.  Bre and Luke are using the same items as in the train, except for Bre’s shoulder pet.

Same information as on the train, along with:

I decided to then finish up this themed shoot, which I’ll probably revisit the theme later on because it was so much fun, by having them do some classroom work and improve on their rusty skills, after years of living among Muggles.

I’m sorry this post was so picture heavy, but I got so inspired I couldn’t stop staging scenes with this theme.  Sometimes you just have to let that nerd/geek flag fly! 😀
