My Color Challenge

As The wonderful Luna's two years worth of color challenges are over and she is justifiably not doing a third round, a few bloggers are starting their own. It was fun, gave us something to post each week and challenged us to step out of our color safety zones. We hated to see it go!

I would now be among those bloggers starting their own! I thought what I could do to make mine different. And settled on a favorite of mine. CRAYONS!

Every color I am going to use is a color of Crayola Crayons.

I'm calling it the 52 box of Crayons Color Challenge.

I've got a good, wide selection of colors picked out. Some I liked the color, some I liked the name of the color. There will be however, two colors that are NOT crayons, and I will explain why I changed and used those colors when I get to them. They are for specific dates and are special colors I wanted to use despite not being a crayon.

Unlike the other challenges, and Luna's own, mine will be posted on the Wednesday of each week. Why then and not Sunday? Due to my Renaissance Faire Schedule I have MANY weeks where I will not be HOME on Sunday to post. So, I figured Wednesday will work for me!

Which means my first color will be posted on January 2nd!

I've created a Flicker group and anInworld group for it.

I know its a long shot but if any designers want the colors, I have the whole year planned out so just ask and I'll shoot you them!

Join in if you want to! I hope some do!

SimDescent of Christmas Spirit SLURL

So, here we have it, The last 52 weeks Of Color, not only of the year, but of the whole thing. Unless some one picks it up or I do it on my own! Which I am pondering. I just have no idea how to get the random color names and such.

I wanted something epic and amazing for this last color. And found it while searching for it. This dress by Nomine is a limited edition gown. I forget how many but there are not THAT many of them on the grid. So with that, plus its just a STUNNING show stopper of an outfit, I felt it was the perfect gown to end this on.

For the location, I pondered just using the same photo sphere and simple background I used on my epic catch up post when I started this. Then I went naaann..and found a unique sim with still a bit of a Christmas theme to it. I had planned to post this a LOT sooner then today! The sim build called Descent of Christmas Spirit in the destination guide fit the bill perfectly.

A weirdly surreal sim, it has many nooks and crannies to explore. some only able to be accessed by the teleport pads located at each location. It was done up for the Holidays in a way that still fit with the sim. Very unique and beautiful in its way. It took me a lot longer to explore then I had anticipated so thusly this post coming so late!

Normally today would be an image for Hanukkah, but I had the images for today’s color/countdown taken before I realized it was the start of Hanukkah, so that will be tomorrow.

I wanted Adar in on this one, It just felt right. I went with a more metal version of gold then the SHADE gold. I like it better. I believe I did the same with silver in last years challenge. And found an outfit for both of us that has lovely touches of gold in it.

For the sim I found a lovely Christmas Build on Leroy that was just perfect! All shimmering and gold! I did not however like the chosen wind light and just switched it to midnight. I think the effect is much better. Its nice romantic spot to visit, and has a dance machine we hopped onto.

Tell you what, getting a good shot of a couple dancing when they both have wings NOT EASY! I tried though!

Getting the post I wanted was fun as well. It's no build so I could not use the pose I wanted! We even tried using the animations and lining him up. No go. Could not get into place. So I got him a candle pose I had as well and used that! Played with some wind light, then went back to midnight and used a "face light" and got the shot I wanted! bwee! The none cropped version is nice as well.

A small warning, there is a gift ball thingy at the place, on a two minute timer. Adar and I both got several glob gifts, which are pretty and I even tried to use them in the shot. but if there are not many folk in the build, you will get a TON of them! However it is still a lovely place to snag a few photos so it may be worth it, plus HEY free pretties!

Today’s post brings a double duty as both my Christmas Countdown image and this weeks color challenge! And look for the first time in MONTHS the color challenge is Ready on Sunday!!

Pink is not a color most folks think of when it comes to Christmas, its more a spring color after all, but it CAN be made to be Festively Christmassy! I knew with this color I wanted a skating outfit and found a sweet one with snowflakes. It shows more of my butt then I like but's covered by virtual "fur" anyway.

Then I found a lovely sim, that I will likely use again for other countdown posts. It was covered in fun pose props all over! And is very much into the holiday season. I took a few scenery shots and you can see those at this link and has a store on it. Which I forgot to go into this time but will be going back. And if you like skating in Secondlife this is a GREAT place for it! Lots of room to zoom about with your hud or hop onto a few pose balls they provide. Singles and couple skates are available.
