Seraphim has had the absolute pleasure of photographing her second Rikugou unit, the adorable Silvarrn…

silvarrn2

… Seraphim has always been very attracted to Rikugou’s, which aren’t that common…

silvarrn3

… she thinks their construction standard is far superior to that of NS units…

silvarrn4

… they have crisp detailing, and beautiful, matt paint…

silvarrn5a

… and a gorgeous, sexy, retro-anime look…

silvarrn6a

… that Seraphim has always found appealing…

… so she was delighted Silvarrn agreed to this photoshoot…

… and hopes there will be more.

Posing

poses

Seraphim has almost finished the cull of her LM’s folder, though she’s not been counting, she thinks she’s deleted around 50! She had no idea she had so many LM’s, though she knew many would be defunct. Today, whilst methodically clicking every one, she clicked the one for Japonica-2018… the sim was still there, and there were still a lot of stalls selling stuff… but there were also several tableau set up in stalls, with pose controls… Seraphim often finds asian sims to be oblique and inscrutable, not to mention, often, just weird… as far as she could see, neither the poses nor the tableau were for sale…

… but they were fun to play with. Some had stunning backdrops, but seemingly miss-matched/inappropriate poses, but all the poses were very good ones…

poses3

… especially the poses in the last one she tried, which had the best match of poses and backdrop…

… Seraphim had a lot of fun..

… leaping and sliding…

… ducking and diving…

… and looking very cool…

… while she did so.

A New Year Begins

NewYear

Just as last year bought an exponential rate of change into Seraphim’s life, this year has already begun to feel the same… perhaps there is no going back? John, the manager of the Kultivate/Windlight gallery spaces, put Seraphims sign up, yesterday… Seri decided to leave the transparent doorway sign she had placed as a temporary measure… it looks great, and it’s one more element that sets her apart from the herd in these galleries… while they were discussing the sign, John asked Seraphim if she would like to exhibit in the Windlight Gallery’s upcoming exhibition… of course, Seri said ‘sure’…

NewYear2

… he gave Seri a slot at the top of the stairs, which Seri was delighted with. While she was there setting up, this morning, she noticed CybeleMoon had a slot on the ground floor… back when Seri was curating her private collection of SL art, she bought several of Cybele’s atmospheric works, and the two occasionally chatted via IM, though had never met…

NewYear3

… Seraphim chose to exhibit her two flagship images of the fabulous Tee… all the other exhibiters seem to cram as many images in their little space as possible, but Seri couldn’t bare to see her girls reduced to a competing mass of tiny images; they are meant to be big and stunning. Seraphim was delighted to see the space next to her was taken by Karma Weymann, whose work Seraphim has several of… Karma had one big picture as well as the seemingly standard half dozen images crammed together, but even her big image was, in fact, a cycling display of multiple images… Seraphim is definitely bucking the ‘more is more’ theme… she loves it, yet another departure from the ‘norm’.

NewYear4

When she came back, later in the day, to see if her artists image had been installed (it hadn’t), she was delighted to see CybeleMoon down at her own display. Cybele asked Seraphim if she had work here, Seraphim said ‘yes, upstairs’, and Cybele said ‘lead the way’, and so the two of them went up the stairs. It’s been well over a year since they talked, and Cybele had never actually seen any of Seraphim’s work, certainly not this work…

NewYear5

… she said she liked it…

NewYear7

… Seraphim asked her if she wanted to see more, and Cybele said ‘yes’, so they went across the courtyard to her new little space…

NewYear8

… as with most inhabitants of SL, Cybele didn’t have a clue what gynoids were, but she declared that, whatever they were, Seraphim had done a good job of photographing them.

 

Poolside Blues

PoolSideBlues

In the last few days, not only has Seraphim opened two new galleries, and visited probably a hundred of her old TP destinations, eliminating the defunct ones, but she has been adding a swimming pool to her guest house, where Zoey is supposed to be living, but has seldom been…

PoolSideBlues2

… she had hoped Zoey would be back by the time it was finished, and that the two of them could play in it together. Instead, she has found herself miserably drifting in aimless circles on the new inflatable mattress she bought for them…

PoolSideBlues3

… listlessly trailing her hands in the lovely, clear water…

PoolSideBlues4a

… her sad little sighs enveloped by the lapping liquid…

PoolSideBlues5

… saying hello to the rubber duckies every time she drifts past them…

PoolSideBlues6

… sometimes humming a little ‘where’s Zoey?’ song…

PoolSideBlues7a

… the duckies saying nothing in return.

 

 

Becoming Known

NewestGal

In what has, without conscious intent, become a deliberate drive to get her art noticed in SL, after years of being content with her backwater gallery, Seraphim has opened another little gallery, this time in the Kultivate Magazine’s gallery sim…

NewestGal2

… due to the time of year, there were several hiccups dealing with the gallery-space management, and, though Seri actually put her money down two days ago, she was only able to rez prims today. Seri is really beginning to enjoy setting these little spaces up…

NewestGal3

… choosing the images, and working out how many she can put up… choosing all the other little elements that make the space interesting and cosy… she’s already evolved a kind of gallery-space collateral design concept that she uses in her little galleries…

NewestGal4a

… having set everything up, the final hiccup manifested itself… she was unable to put her signage on the sign… when she told the manager this, he said he had to do it, could she send him a texture, and he’d do it tomorrow… so Seri improvised a sign… which she just might leave, because she quite likes it.
