In the Eye Of the Beholder -- Featuring Face Paint, Luziefee and Zanze

There are times where I'm certain I've not quite captured the image I intended. I wander Second Life and look for beautiful settings to enhance the glorious diversity of clothing I get to blog, yet even with all the work, sometimes things don't quite seem to come to the fruition that I sought.

Featured Zanze Envy
1. IKON: Sunrise Eyes Steel Blue Pale
2. *booN: DTU831
3. Sexy Mama's Valentine Manicure
4. [Mirror's Enigma]: Sapphire Tan Skintone

It makes me smile when I have a friend say "I love that..." and they're pointing to a photo that I thought failed miserably. Lately I've realized that there are all sorts of ways to make something work and just because I can't see it through my eyes doesn't mean I haven't conveyed the message to others and their eyes.

Featured Luziefee Chenoa Poppy
1. Luziefee: Leni Onyx Ring
2. Moonshadow: Flower Season Set
3. Liv-Glam: Priisma Glam Sneakers
4. [Mirror's Enigma]: Sapphire Tan Skintone

6. Face Paint: Fall Perfect Liner
7. EMO-tions: Anna
8. IKON: Sunrise Eyes Steel Blue Pale
9. Demise of Flight Poses

Being a perfectionist can be a positive thing. It makes me check and recheck what I do. It also makes me hard on myself. It's good to have rational and real friends who will genuinely say "No no no, that's crap!" if it is crap. They're also trusted enough by me that when I can't see the beauty in the moment and they do, I'm grateful that as they behold it, it is really beautiful.

Featured Face Paint Fall Matte Lips
1. Liv-Glam: Kane Print Dress

I recently attended a casting where we had to be short (scoff hahahaha) and only 6-7 feet tall. In a world away from this, 2 years ago when I began working with Carrie, I was 5'2 in world. I've been stretching ever since. I am 5'11" in my world off line and always wanted to be short. So I was short here. Very short it seems. Now I'm extremely tall. And when I put on the shorter avi, I felt strange. It's just another example of how we perceive beauty and behold it.
