Great Masterpieces Updated

whispersI had the great fortune to participate in another of Callipygian Christensen’s photo shoots. She and Trindolyn Beck and Sysperia Poppy are revisiting RL masterpieces. They are looking at the originals and recreating or reinterpreting them within SL. They are each doing a number of pieces and the official show opening is coming up in a few weeks.

I am torn between telling you exactly what we were doing and keeping it secret til the opening. I suspect that most everyone will be able to guess the masterpiece from the few pictures I’ve included here. So that is not really the secret. 🙂 It’s the explanation of WHY we are dressed as we are that is so interesting. That is the part that is intriguing and exciting. Taking a scene and an event that we all know, but skewing it 180 degrees. Envisioning that moment as if it happened at Moulin Rouge. I have always been fascinated by Moulin Rouge. I am also fascinated by history and religion. I love sexy clothes. So for me, this was an exquisite combination of pleasures.

center Calli posed us for the first round of pictures. We waited as she reviewed the results, then made changes to the poseballs. You need to understand that the poseballs were specially created for this masterpiece by her friend Butch Adzebills For many of the other images Calli is creating the poses herself- these poses are not pre-fab poses available in SL. So this is not just creative Art, it is creative technical construction . After Calli went through the first takes, she moved every poseball for a better recreation of the image and put us back to position for more.

While the posing and chatter were a LOT of fun, I find that her concept was just as enjoyable. Yes, I’m sure there are some who will find it offensive. Ah well, such is life, is it not? I am sorry that something so clever will be seen by some as “wrong”. I loved shopping for the appropriate attire. LOL. I confess – i bought THREE possible outfits for her approval. The chat during the shoot was a riot. Nothing like a bunch of women held captive in lingerie to have wonderfully friendly and risque conversation.

the-right-sideI promise that as I have more information, I will let you know. I know 2 of the other masterpieces being recreated, and they should prove as stimulating as this one.

There's not much to say about me. I discovered SecondLife by accident, wandered in, and decided I wanted to stay. This blog was a chronicle of my adventures and misadventures in SL. It also includes stray thoughts that occur to me as a result of my time in SL. Both I and my avatar are female. We both love water and the beach and gardening and parties and hanging out with friends. Updating this after quite some time. I haven't appeared in SL in many many months (probably over a year by now) but SL has remained in my thoughts. I do miss my SL, but at least I still have contact with some of my friends from there. In the meantime.... this blog has evolved to be about my RL adventures. :) Nowhere near as risque as my SL but I do keep busy. I still like all the things listed above. I didn't have any cats in SL (only ducks and a panda) so my cats feel that they should play starring roles in my posts. :) I didn't do much eating IN SL although certainly food and drink accompanied me in RL while I roamed inworld. Cooking and baking have become more fun and interesting once I redid my kitchen. That renovation took longer and cost more than if I'd done it virtually, but I'm thrilled to have a tangible new kitchen! I hope you like food and drink as well! Thanks for reading!

    It was a total blast to participate in Calli’s project. She is unbelievably creative and I can’t wait for the show.
