A makeover was needed

Meet my alt;

Actually, she is my old main, but I more or less abandoned her back in 2008. Before that I wasn’t really that into shopping and styling and photography and such, so you can imagine what a mess I had to work with.

Too tall, leg sliders maxed out, too small hands..well, you can imagine. So naturally I just said “screw this”, completely changed her shape up, got her a mesh body, hands, feets and a head. It’s been fun to play around with something completely different. She’s even shorter then Shyn, so I’ve had to fiddle a bit to make her proportions look right, but I think I’m getting there. Naturally she won’t be taking over as my main, I still adore Shyn way too much for that, but she is fun.

She was still lacking in the clothes department, so I took her around to C88 and The Body Mod Expo and ended up with some goodies.

SL got a little more fun again. I’ve been in a rut, as you know, stuck only creating for events, not going out and having fun, exploring or shopping. I now shop for something that’s not “me”, and that’s interesting. It has also been interesting to play around in Photoshop. With all the mesh fixing what previously took quite some time to repair in Photoshop, I can now spend my energy on playing around with different effects. This time I tried out a few quick actions, and they turned out alright for something that only took minutes.

How do you get your creativity back?

As you can tell, I have been in more then a little bit of a creative slump lately. What little I have had, has gone towards my store, cause hey, I still wanna shop even if I’m not blogging.

But the question is, how do you get it back? Or how do you keep it going, even tho it’s kind of waning away?

I used to be pretty good at this. I kept going, kept taking pictures and posting even tho I wasn’t feeling it 100%. But now I’m not so sure how to anymore.

I’ve missed blogging and taking pictures so, so much. It is a great creative outlet for me, plus I learn a lot in Photoshop while I fiddle with the picture. Want a certain effect I just can’t perfect? Well then I just look up tutorials and practice til I get it.

Ohwell, here is a picture I took a few weeks back.
