I was handed a bunch of links when I took over the role of SL Naturist editor, and as I’ve eased myself into the role I’ve felt more confident about visiting some of the sites listed without feeling that I was simply re-treading Ella and Pookes style, or lacked imagination of my own. It was important to me to indicate a Trine & Abigail style of blogging and up until now that’s what I’ve tried to do. But there are some excellent links in the list, and flicking through the back pages of SL Naturist it’s likely several bloggers were Ella & Pookes’ SL friends as well.
Today, I got around to visiting Caitlin Tobias’ blog page, Cait’s World, one of the links passed to me, and a great looking site it is too, as well as being a great read. The first post on the page referenced Cait’s own pose shop at the Basilique sim so I teleported over there to check it out for myself as we love poses on this blog.
One of the sets for sale (attractively priced at L$65 for three poses, each with a mirror pose) was called ‘Simply Nude’ and it was begging to be purchased for the title alone. 🙂
I’m not going to blog that set -yet- for reasons that will become clear. Also available (L$0) at Cait’s store is a ‘do it yourself profile’ pose.
You can try out the effect against a backdrop (see photo above) for yourself. And under the Christmas tree is another free (L$0) pose called ‘Pleased to meet you’.
Above you can see Abi and I testing it out, after which I used it a couple more times at a Second Life Christmas/housewarming party. Howie holds a ‘soiree’ every year for his SL Naturist friends, staff, models and anyone else who drops by. The reality is that this ‘soiree’ is held across several nights (and days) to accommodate people from around the globe who are logging in at different times. I met numerous people when I attended (yes, invitations and times are sent out as notecards) and the ‘pleased to meet you’ pose also got used having been introduced to Mark (see photo below).
Which brings me back to the ‘Simply Nude’ pose set. I sat by the pool for a while and used the poses therein. However, Howie has taken a lot of photos from the party (and other attendees did too) and we’ll be publishing a lengthy ‘housewarming party’ posting next week, so look out for the ‘Simply Nude’ set displayed in that. In the meantime, I’d recommend you pop along to Cait’s store and check out the poses available.
