Site Changes – Calling All Photographers!

 Snapshot_004

With the closing of Fashionphiles, I have decided to add some of the feature posts that I wrote on that site to this site as well.  And, after an experiment this week, I’ve decided to do something completely different than any other blog that I know of.

So, from here on out you can see the following pieces on GumboGlam.

1. Who Designed it Better/Who Wore it Better – For those that didn’t read these.  Who designed it better was when I took 2 designers similar designs and opened a vote of which was best.  Who Wore it Better was the same concept of open vote but it was myself and Lourdes accessorizing the heck out of the same outfit.  Both featured blogs were super fun to write and participate in and I don’t want to lose them.

2. The Countdown – I haven’t forgotten about my countdown of favorite things.  I have 5 left to write.  These have been very popular, and I will make it all the way to my #1 favorite thing in SL

3. Guest Photographers *New* – I experimented this week with Guest Photographers, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.  So, I’m opening the opportunity for any SL photographer with interest.  I’ve long felt that the fashion industry is so much more than just the clothing, and the photography plays a HUGE part.  What I’m doing is allowing a photographer to shoot my style of the day, edit to their photographic preference, and then I use those pictures for this blog.  The photographer gets exposure on Gumbo Glam, The Fashion Feeds, Flickr, & Plurk.  It’s a greatchance to build your portfolio and clients.  This is not just open for established photographers, I want to give upcoming photographers a chance to show off their talent.  If you are interested, please leave a comment or IM me in world.  

That’s all for now!  I hope that ya’ll are excited about the additions and help participate with much enjoyment 🙂

First of all, I would like to introduce you to my guest photographer for today Miss Klet Glas.  She did some amazing work didn’t she?  Just simply beautiful.  Thank You so much Klet!

I have so many mixed emotions about the ensemble I’ve put together for all my readers today.  Most of the items are review copies, so my first emotions are grateful and thankful.  But, I have included some pieces from the soon to be closed Crimson Shadow sim so there is some sadness attached as well.  However, I got the Crimson Shadow items for only 50L so that of course is happiness.  Without further statement of my emotions let the ensemble information begin.

It started with a top, well actually a dress to be exact.  Thora was kind enough to send me over some review copies, and one of those items was the new Lelutka QI Dress in deep pink.  The dress is fabulous, but everyone knows I can never wear something “off the rack.”  And now we come to the skirt. Monica sent me some wonderful pieces from her Miamai Fashion Creations.  This is from the Vanita Black Gown and it is beautiful.  145 prims!  Amazing job, it’s just simply beautiful.  (You’ll be seeing more designs of hers from me in upcoming blogs.)  The hair was a gift from amazing designer Jeanie Valois of Posh and it is Elle Loves Bows in Charcoal.  Just adorable and amazing, like all of her hair.  And, of course, in following with nearly all of my previous blogs I am wearing a skin from the oBscene by the outstandingly talented Kuja Akina.  This skin is Braelyn – Beda in Tone 2 and should be available for purchase very soon.  Oh, and can you believe I don’t have to talk about shoes???
