Eisa Gallery Setup

EisaSetup

Seraphim finally made her move to establish a gallery in Eisa Colony, 3 days ago. She rented an empty floor in the Bushnell Suites, the 5th floor, to be precise…

EisaSetup2

… then she spent around 8 hours, over the last 3 days, but, mostly today, setting the gallery space up. Her 3 previous rented gallery spaces have given her the experience, and a go-to set of ‘brand collateral’, to quickly set up a new gallery…

EisaSetup2a

… she had a lot of fun doing this, as always, but, this was even more special, because this was a gallery in Eisa, the heart of the Gynoid world…

EisaSetup3

… as always, she placed several of her many dolls around the space. The gallery is on floor five, and she can look out the window at the NS Mainstore and, hopefully, when the re-decorating is finished in Eisa, much more, as well…

EisaSetup4

… as many of the people who come here will be Gynoid, she has provided a couple of wall-mounted charge points for the use of any depleted units who may come to view the art…

EisaSetup5

… the very first visitor, minutes after Seraphim had finished the final touches, and was sitting in one of the chairs, relaxing, was a 4 day old avatar named Wind, and his tech-pet, Zero…

EisaSetup6

… the second visitor was Luna, the star of Seri’s last photo-shoot. The two friends enjoyed the new space, together, Luna checking out the view…

EisaSetup8

… when Seraphim first negotiated renting the space for a gallery, she was given the impression she could put a sign outside the Bushnell Suites. Unfortunately, once she was established, this turned into her being only able to have a sign in the lobby… which, while better than nothing, is not ideal…

EisaSetup9

… Seraphim and Luna were talking about this, and Luna said she would happily wear a sandwich board and stand in the NS Mainstore… Seraphim suddenly thought about Luna’s ‘Terabit’, a holographic cube that NS Gynoids can wear above their heads, if they choose, with simple phrases on them, after a bit of experimentation, the girls discovered that Luna could put Seraphims gallery sign in her Terabit, and it looked fabulous. The friends were delighted they had come up with this way to subvert the limitation placed on Seraphim by the Eisa hierarchy. Luna went down to the Mainstore to test it…

EisaSetup10

… and within seconds, she had attracted a visitor, or perhaps it was her naked breasts… Seri had to log off, then, but things are looking exciting for her in Eisa.

 

Little Dancer

Seraphim was in Coghaven, this morning, putting up some images from her latest shoot with Luna, when she realised she could faintly hear what sounded like Japanese pop music, something she hadn’t heard in Coghaven, before. She followed the sound to a stage/ampitheatre, where she saw a little Rikugou…

LittleDancer2a

… named Lyralia. Lyralia was dancing to the pop music…

LittleDancer3

… Seraphim was enchanted. She finds Rikugou’s incredibly attractive because of their cute, anime faces, fabulous bodies and gorgeous detail…

LittleDancer4

… but she’d never seen one dancing, before. She watched, delighted, until the little dancer finished, and TP’d away…

LittleDancer5

… Seri is smaller than a lot of avatars, and Rikugou’s tend to be even tinier than Seri, which just makes them more adorable to her…

LittleDancer6

… a tiny, dancing Rikugou is about as adorable as it gets…

LittleDancer7

… it’s hard to get good pictures of a dancer, due to the very nature of a photo being a split-second freeze-frame of continuing action; beautiful, sinuous motion does not look quite the same when taken out of context in a split-second freeze-frame…

LittleDancer8

… Seri took 450 such frames, which she reduced to these 8, that she feels manage to slightly convey the delightful encounter she had with a little dancing Rikugou, this morning.

Strangers in a Stranger Land

strangerinastrangerland

Zoey was keen to be led somewhere… she would have preferred it was to their bed, but Seraphim had spent all day doing creative stuff, mostly around their home, and wanted to get out, so she took her girl…

strangerinastrangerland2

… to Memento mori, somewhere Zoey had never been. The little Gynoid was impressed, though, still, more interested in her Mistress, than in her surroundings… Seraphim told her she was incorrigible, which totally delighted her girl. Next, Seraphim took them to Eisa…

strangerinastrangerland3

… which is undergoing an almost total rebuild which, if you are familiar with Eisa, is pretty impressive… the place has been almost totally empty all month, Seraphim goes there regularly to chronicle the rebuild, up to the last few days, there have only been three buildings there, so far. Seraphim was delighted to see that Tee’s apartment block had been put back, though in a new place…

strangerinastrangerland4

… she thinks it’s a different Bushnell Suites, as this one is empty, and she knows Tee is still ensconced in her one, high above Eisa…

strangerinastrangerland6a

… the Eisa elite have moved up into giant hard-drives, in the sky above Eisa, uploaded as only Gynoids could be, waiting while they direct the transformation. Below, on the hazy, empty plain, Seraphim and Zoey Zoe Zoe felt like strangers in an even stranger land.

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…

fs2

… 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…

fs7

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

fs8

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

 

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.
