The salmon crayon comes in the Standard 48 and up packs and is one of the older crayons having been added in 1949 !

When this color came up, I HAD to use it to show off my beloved Steelhead, as our mascot is the Steelhead Salmon! I asked Lunar for a short list of places on each sim that he feels shows off Steelhead to its best. He provided me with a list of builds that are based on Real world Buildings or places. I will happily pass out that note card to anyone that wants it! I am going to show off one photo from each location and if you want to see all the photos I took of the builds go to this handy link here

Steelhead is wanting new blood! So if you want to come live in a fantastic set of sims with one of the most amazing groups of people you will ever met, Come give us a visit! You will be welcomed with Open arms! we take all types no matter your fancy. We are an active group and work both to have fun in world but also have a presence at Relay for Life of Secondlife. Steelhead holds a weekly town meeting on Tuesdays and a weekly themed dance on Fridays. As well as many other events throughout the week.

Now onto the builds!

Pose ~Virtual Props~ My Ruin Multipose Prop SLURL
Sim Steelhead Nevermore SLURL

I knew EXACTLY who I wanted to wear when I saw it was Mushu. I had just discovered Lika Ruby last week for a Steelhead dance. This is not the outfit I wore to the dance, that ones pink. I went back to the store and found something that fit mushu quite well.

The hair is a bit of fun from Tukinowaguma..not something I’d wear often.

Two more weeks of this left. Wish it was longer! I could do these forever, its so much fun!

I remember watching Up when it first came out.

And I remember feeling, after those minutes, that Adar is my Carl.

So I wanted to get this one right.

I looked for the start of the movie online and could not find the whole thing, but I found this!

We where also supposed to do one of the mice, Gus Gus, but I did not want to dress one of the guys up as him and knew no one else who would. So I used a pose with a mouse in it, which you can’t see in the photo I just noticed..doh.

255, 155, 170

The Lapis Lazuli crayon was found in the 1994 specialty crayon box Gem Tones. As a stone Lapis is a fantastic shade of blue mottled with bits of calcite and pyrite. It has its most famous usage in Egyptian jewelry and statues so I wanted to go with an Egyptian theme for the shoot. Which meant that most of the shade is in the jewelry I have on and not the outfit itself.

Finding the sim took me FORREEVVERRR, I avoided the one I ended up with for a while as its description in the destination guide made it sound more like a random chat location rather then a beautifully done Rp sim. Then when I got there I found out it is not one but FOUR sims so, it took way longer then I thought to explore it. And I am sure I missed stuff.
