Surprise! Yeah, yeah. I know. This blogger went M.I.A. for 4 months without a single word. What can I say? I had some things to sort out. Get my head back in the game, get my perspective back on track. You know how it goes. Nearly 4 years in Second Life and hardly missed more than a week or two(There was that surgery last year) so I guess it was a long overdo “vacation”. If you are still keeping an eye on this, thanks. I appreciate the support. There should be more activity here in the future, starting with my latest project..
What a project this turned out to be! Who woulda thought that it would be so hard to get good victims these days? Oh, finding them was the easy part! There is an endless supply of them in the Bitch Tail VIP group. Finding ones that met my requirements and keeping them alive long enough was a completely different matter. All in all, two of them died and three got lost at Bitch Tail. Those poor souls. A moment of silence, if you will please..
Now, I wanted to do something completely different. I wanted to showcase a select few outfits from Bitch Tail that I missed AND use Bitch Tail customers to do it! Not too many bloggers do this sort of thing as you find most have themselves modeling off their latest shopping excursion purchases. But let’s be honest here. Are the blogs really about you or are they about the store(s) you are blogging about? If it is about you, the blogger, then my opinion is you do this for the wrong reasons. The secondary cause for a store’s success is its customer fan base(Primary being that the creator has made great quality clothing). So in this post, I wanted to proudly display some of Bitch Tail’s more loyal customers. Why? Because that is what Bitch tail is all about, its customers.
A word of warning, for those just peeking in. I am no expert in PhotoShop. Far from it actually, but I do like to dabble and express my creativity. I have never taken a single course(unless you count watching a few YouTube vids), but with that in mind, I am not half bad for a beginner iffn I say so myself. Every time I open PhotoShop, I learn something new. I actually had to do some minor repairs on the below photo. We had a wayward finger in one outfit and in another, the model wasn’t posed perfectly and you could see parts of the body through the outfit. Can you tell where I edited and had to add color?
My latest victims were a great bunch of girls to work with and we even had a few laughs! Who knew killing victims could be so fun?! I mean doing a photo shoot. I really need to work on keeping my story straight… Now for your shopping lists, listed from left to right:

Thank you ladies for your help! I hope to work with you again in future shoots!
Now for some things I did with PhotoShop. Remember, I have had absolutely NO training whatsoever. I have watched a couple of How-To videos if those count. I have never worked with the Quick Select tool and I can tell you, that was a challenge! I did have fun though and the effects worked out alright.
I am actually quite proud of this one myself. Don’t it look like they are popping right out of the picture? Not bad for a beginner. The next shot, I made the mistake of saving over the original I worked from so can’t post the before effects picture. My bad. I told you I was a beginner.. but I really like this one, too!
Pretty neat Polaroid Montage effect(And yes, Hannah, if you look close, you REALLY did blink)! Okay. I am done showing off my noobiness. Thanks for the cupcake licks and keep checking back!
