Creating the ‘Fallen Angel’ Shoot

fs

Seraphim gave her studio a complete texture makeover, for the ‘Fallen Angel’ shoot. This was possible, because she built the whole place herself, using basic prims and full-perms mesh items, so she can change the textures to suit her needs, whenever she wants to. The winged pose chair isn’t full perms, but she can modify it’s textures, which is very useful…

… she picked up the doors and the columns from the full-perms fair a few days ago, they fitted her vision for the set, perfectly. All the textures she uses are her own work…

fs3

… she put some of her beautiful, glowing ‘shrooms’ in the space behind the walls, to create the ambient light that shines through, into the room… sometimes the limits of SL lighting effects can work advantageously…

fs4

… after a few days work, she had the ‘tomb’ space the way she wanted it. Once again, while the spiky vines are not full-perm, she can, and did, alter their texture to suit her needs…

fs5

… once she had Zoey’s ‘dream-landing’ space set up, she was ready to go…

fs6

… the star arrived, saying ‘I’s a witch’, which Seri could, in fact, see. After she’d told Zoey she was a very cute witch, Seri suggested Zoey wear something more ‘Through-the-looking-glass-ish’, which was one of the themes Seri had been working with, here. Zoey came up with the gorgeous outfit she wore for the shoot, and while it wasn’t what Seri had initially had in mind, it was much better… they were ready to go, and Seri rolled her camera…

… taking hundreds of images, until the final shot. Seri and Zoey adore each other, and had lots of fun creating ‘Fallen Angel’…

… this morning, Zoey was delighted when Seraphim showed her she now has an entire floor to herself, in the recently expanded ‘New Placebo Gallery’.

 

Fallen Angel

Zoey woke up in a falling dream… or, at least, she thought it was a dream she’d awoken in, she wasn’t sure… didn’t know how long she’d actually been falling…

fallenangel2

… it seemed like a very long time, perhaps… for ever?…

fallenangel3

… and, suddenly, she landed. No thud, or jolt, she was just… standing here, not falling, any more… ‘very strange…’ thought Zoey. She noticed a rather grand door, so headed over to it…

fallenangel4

… she tapped on it, rather tentatively, with her claws… ‘hello…?’, called the little neko outside the dream-door…

fallenangel5

… which swung inward, without a sound…

fallenangel7

… as she walked into the tomb-like interior, Zoey thought ‘It’s just as well I’m dreaming, otherwise, I’d be very frightened…’… the passage felt like it had been undisturbed for millennia…

fallenangel8

‘oh!’ exclaimed Zoey, when she saw what was inside… she felt an immediate attraction to the winged chair, despite the thorny tentacles that seemed to be guarding it…

fallenangel10

… despite herself, the little dreamer timidly stepped closer…

fallenangel11

… knowing she had no choice, but to sit on the chair…

fallenangel12

… which she did…

fallenangel13

… she’s not sure how long ago that was, now…

fallenangel14a

… seems like forever…

fallenangel15

… occasionally she dreams she is falling…

fallenangel16

… falling away from this silent tomb.

 

Working in the Studio

Seraphim has been hard at work creating a new environment in her studio, for her next photoshoot with Zoey…

best19th2

… she has been experimenting with applying new textures to her main backdrop walls and floor. She used a new pose-chair she bought at the latest pose fair, to take some test shots, to see how she liked the new textures…

best19th3

… she was pretty happy with them.

Sweet Zoey

Seraphim dragged her little cat-girl into the studio, today, because Zoey just looked too gorgeous not to be adored with a camera…

stzoey2

… Zoey is the sweetest thing ever to happen to Seraphim…

stzoey3

… she is Seraphim’s first Neko love, as well as being an NS Relic unit…

stzoey4

… she is warm and loving…

stzoey5

… manic and silly…

stzoey6

… cute and curious…

stzoey7

… clever and funny…

stzoey8

… sleepy and slow… just like the big, beautiful kitten she is.

After-shoot

aftershoot

When Seri did her recent shoot with Silvarrn, she had the biggest audience in her studio she has ever had… there was Zoey, in her new human-neko form, which Seri adores, Bunny, Dolly, and… Tee! Yes, Tee! Seraphim was incredibly happy to be surrounded by all this love, and suspects Silvarrn was a bit stunned at the audience…

aftershoot2

… by the time the shoot was over, Tee had shooed Dolly back home. Silvarrn said she had to go. Seri thanked Silvarrn, and asked the other girls over to her pool for an after-shoot swim…

aftershoot3

… where Seri changed into more appropriate attire, and Zoey said she had to go, but didn’t leave before she had pushed Seri into the pool and told her she loved her…

aftershoot4

… and then there were three. Tee and Bunny (s4nura) are Seraphim’s oldest, most consistent friends… oldest, in that they are both 12 year old SL avatars, but also in that they are Seri’s longest known friends in SL…

aftershoot5

… Seri loves them both very much. Neither of them has ever let her down, or been nasty to her, as several of her ‘friends’ have, but, much more than that, both these beautiful creatures are very intelligent, and wise from their SL years, which they have both actually lived, unlike many SL avi’s with high-numbered ages, who have actually only spent a fraction of that in SL, these girls have been here the whole time, and they have been dolls/gynoids for the whole time…

aftershoot6

… Seri adores them both, very much. Bunny does not ‘belong’ to Seri, but the two of them have an unspoken attraction for each other, which keeps them always in one another’s orbit…

aftershoot7

… Tee actually ‘belongs’ to Seri, though Seri has told Tee the truth is that she belongs to Tee… Tee is a supernatural force of her own construction, like nothing Seri has ever met in SL, and Seri just loves being with her…

aftershoot8

… the after-shoot pool-lounge could not have been sweeter, Seri and her two best friends, joking and chatting in the clear, cool water of Seri’s new pool.
