“Oh, it’s been such a long, long time,
Looks like I’d get you off my mind,
Oh, but I can’t,
Just the thought of you,
Turns my whole world,
A misty blue…”

~ Dorothy Moore

A slow, sweet Saturday night here. I hope you’re having a nice one, too.

Tyrian Purple came together quite nicely, if I do say so myself. (I always love it when I can find something the perfect color from PurpleMoon’s sale items! Weeee!)

Next week’s color in Luna’s Challenge is Russett. It might be easy, but I don’t know… I seem to have the most trouble with earthy shades of brown. I’ll conveniently blame that on my monitor. *wink*

See you all again soon! XoXOoxoxoxXOXox ~

One of my favorite color combinations is black and turquoise. To me, it’s a unique mix of freshness, crispness, and optimism with a deep, dark sensual moodiness. It’s as if you are mixing night and day together — how powerful and alluring is that?

The next color in The Challenge is Shuttle Gray. Please stop in again and see how that comes together!

52 Weeks of Color II: Alice Blue

by alphabrat a.k.a. Pink Sommerfeld

Gown: “Viviane” Formal – Ice Blue ~ Son!a
Shoes: *GF* Ribbon Slingback Shoes[V2] – Silver ~ G. Field
Lipstick: Erika Tan lips 7 ~ Belleza

Finishing this week’s ensemble was not as easy as I thought it would be, but I do like the way it turned out. I searched for Alice blue, powder blue, baby blue, robin’s egg blue, sky blue — and most items would have worked just fine. This little ice blue number from Son!a’s did the trick, though.

Next week’s color is Folly, which seems to be a cool shade of red. Tune in again to see what I come up with for that!

52 Weeks of Color: 15 Favorites

by alphabrat a.k.a. Pink Sommerfeld

Row 1. Pink, Sepia, Moss Green
Row 2. Bronze, Eggplant, Olive
Row 3. Neon Carrot, White, Electric Blue
Row 4. Blue, Mauve, Black
Row 5. Ruby, Sienna, Sky Blue

Here they are: My favorite Alphabrat photographs taken during the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge!

It was fun (and eye-opening) to go back and review all of the images from the past year. It always surprises me when I realize the amount of emotional connection that I have with my own avatar and the avs of others. Isn’t it strange to look at a picture of a virtual character and say “Awww…look how much she has changed!” or “He looks so cute in that outfit; it really suits his personality.”

It sort of warps my mind – after all, they are just virtual characters!

Or are they more than that?

Until next time… XoOXoXOXOOox
