I’m headed straight for the castle

Sick of all these people talking, sick of all this noise.
Tired of all these cameras flashing, sick of being poised.
And now my neck is open wide, begging for a fist around it.
Already choking on my pride, so there’s no use crying about it.

The second I spotted this Elizabethan-style ruff on a cam around the SaNaRae event it was one of those inhale-sharply-GOT-to-have-that  moments. But I had no idea that playing around with Windlight would give me images like the ones below.

It’s by ParxDesign, and I picked up the ‘classic pack’ which features white, blood red, and pitch black. I’m looking forward to what I can do with the others, but for now it was the white one that I immediately had ideas for. Initially they were as the above: pure white and glittery-wintery, but then… oh then  I started playing with Windlight…



The difference a Torley preset (okay, and a couple of filters; I’ll post an unedited shot at the end) can make, huh? I just love the chiaroscuro in these shots. It’s rare for me to fall head over heels with my own photography (I always see the flaws) but these? Yeah, I’m a little bit heart-thumpy over these *g*

The eyes are by ARTE, and they were initially what I knew  I’d be putting with this ruff, alongside the skin.

The ears are by L’Etre, who have rapidly become my go-to for pierced mesh ears. Simple to customise with a fantastic colour and tinting HUD.

Lastly, the hair is by Modulus and it’s out at the current (January) Man Cave, which ends in a couple of days, on 31st January.

Oh, and I promised you an un-edited pic with that Windlight. It’s Torley’s “Foggy – Southern Delite” setting, and it looks incredible (even without filters) on all-white looks:
