Sweet Zoey

stzoey

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…

… 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.

Silvarrn

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…

silvarrn7a

… so she was delighted Silvarrn agreed to this photoshoot…

silvarrn8a

… 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…

poses4

… Seraphim had a lot of fun..

poses5

… leaping and sliding…

poses6

… 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.
