Sometimes designers decide to collaborate on a project and the results are breathtaking. In case of the “Cosmic Traveller” project this did not surprise me at all, because if you throw together the talents of MiaSnow Myriam (“MiaSnow”), Jasmine Lisle (“JASstore”), Sofia London (“lurvebite”), Groll Greggan (“Grollwerk”), Helena Stringer (“The Stringer Mausoleum”) and Nix Sands (“XCENTRICITY”), only good things can come out of this. The space-inspired creations included skins by MiaSnow, space pets by lurvebite, boots, space gear and a cosmic photosphere with poses and star particles by JASstore. Unfortunately I didn’t manage to blog about this collaboration in January, when everything was still available at one location. Therefore, if you are interested in any of the items, you should check out the individual stores.
MiaSnow is one of my favourite skin designers because her works are fantastic, intense, beautiful, creepy and colourful. The “Cosmic Johanna” skin is a perfect example of her very unique style. It comes in a pack of four tones (two blue and two green ones), a shape and three pairs of eyes, which is a steal for L$1001.
In my “things to photograph” folder I found this almost forgotten outfit by BareRose, which went perfectly with the fierce-but-glamorous alien look I was hoping to achieve. I have a weakness for peackock dresses and this one is definitely an intergalactic version. You might have seen the poseprop Sci-Fi hallway by Glitterati on the feeds before, but for those who haven’t: it comes with ten menu-controlled poses and it absolutely brilliant (the pose in this picture is one of the built-in poses).
The first and the last pose though are from “Del May”, a shop which I just discovered during the “Tainted Love” hunt and which has a fantastic sortiment. I grabbed a few excentric and unusual model poses and essential ones like “Rain on my Face” and “Against the wind” to use in my beloved bad weather sims. The store offers custom fatpacks, so if you plan to buy 10 or more poses, you should go for one of these.
I believe in the possibility that aliens exist somewhere out there – and that they might be more glamorous than we are.
