Evolution of a Snapshot

4 Jan

Do you ever get started on a snapshot and then realize something feels… off? Do you ever come back to a look you’ve put together previously and want to add or subtract an element that just doesn’t fit? I went through that today, and I happened to take photos along the way.  I wonder what you think about the choices I made.

1. In my first take, I wanted something fierce and dramatic, so I chose the Tres Blah Hiccup Vamp skin to make a statement. Maitreya’s Dylan hair softened my face, but after taking a long look at the result, it just felt awkward.

2. My second time around I thought I could gain some blogger points by throwing in some nerdy glasses and wild hair.  I dropped the theatrical skin and chose the luscious red Curio Elf mouth instead. Even so, this look was not for me. Someone more creative can probably pull this off elsewhere!

3. Third time’s the charm! I was out shopping and picked up the sexy Maitreya Esprit heels and Mika hair from Friday. I dropped the geek, and went for chic. The final touch was switching taped hands for prim nails (which you can barely see at this angle, but they’re glitter rd if it matters). I kept all the other elements I’d chosen earlier in the day.

Bam! Instant sex.

    I can’t decide between the second and third one actually. The second one could have worked really well without the glasses

    Thanks Nai, that’s really flattering!

    Phoenix: You may be right. I think I did look a bit better without the glasses, but the hair creates an awkward frame on my face for some reason. I could have modified it, though.
