New Home

B&WTease

A few days ago, Seraphim bought herself the amazing mansion you see behind her. In order to even have somewhere to put it, let alone have the prims she needed to really go nuts setting it up as her new home, she had to dismantle years of construction and landscaping, which gave her around 1500 prims to play with…

… she loves her gorgeous new home, and has spent the last few days moving her stuff into the ground floor, and has just started on the second floor… the ground floor is just the initial, fairly quick placing of basic goodies, she knows she’ll be tweaking it for ever, but, you have to start somewhere…

… setting up her still-life projects has been excellent preparation for such a major piece of decorating… in fact, it was setting up her last shoot that made her decide it would be nice to live in a beautiful, mesh home, with soft lines and curves, as apposed to the industrial-style places she’s always built herself, because she doesn’t know how to make mesh…

… as she moves all her stuff from her old home, she will dismantle it… it will be the end of an era, for Seri, she’s lived in that building, in it’s various incarnations, for eight years…

… but, once she gets into ‘moving on’ mode, she doesn’t look back.

Happy News About Hangars Liquides

HL1

Yesterday, Seraphim received an update from Djehan Kidd, the creator of Hangars Liquides, that the Indiegogo campaign, set up to raise the money to pay LL labs so they won’t delete it from their servers, has reached 57%, thus allowing Hangars Liquides to pay a 3000 Euro payment, forestalling that deletion for the time being…

HL2a

… Seraphim is delighted that this fabulous place isn’t going to vanish any time soon, the loss of it would leave only a few equally unique, stunning works of environmental genius in SL, especially on this scale…

HL3a

… Seraphim zapped over, today, to inhale the industrial smells, and listen to the cyberpunk ambience…

HL4a

… she is proud of herself for making what was, for her, a fairly significant donation, one she thought about for several days, in the end deciding she had to put her money where her heart was… she would never have forgiven herself if she’d sat by, hoping other, wealthier people, would save one of her favourite places in SL…

HL5a

… standing here, today, she’s very pleased she didn’t do nothing.

 

Dark

Gothic

Yesterday, Seraphim showed s4nura her latest ‘backdrop’ acquisition…

Gothic2

… it’s a gothic-ish build… not really technically ‘gothic’, but certainly gothic in it’s dark potential…

Gothic3

… with nice textures and lighting possibilities…

Gothic4

… it wasn’t an actual photoshoot…

Gothic5

… but, you know Seri, her camera’s are always rolling.

The Promise

ThePromise

Today, Seraphim visited ‘The Promise’…

ThePromise2

… the recommended windlight is very stark, has a very limited palette…

ThePromise3

… Seraphim loaded black & white into her camera drones, just knowing it would look stunning…

ThePromise4

… she wasn’t wrong…

ThePromise5

… it did.
