These Brilliant Second Life Snapshots Look Like They're Straight Out Of The Attic

Mr Godard Poppy
Janine "Iris Ophelia" Hawkins' ongoing review of gaming and virtual world style

It's been a while since I've shared some Monday morning eye-candy on New World Notes, but I'd say this gorgeously grainy shot by Mr Godard certainly qualifies. 

Mr Godard's work may lead to a few double takes; while every picture is taken in Second Life, each have a careful combination of vintage photo filters and effects applied that make them nearly indistinguishable from something you might pluck out of an old album in a thrift store. Film grain, blurring, and careful manipulation of colors mean that the seams of virtual world photography are well hidden in his various still-lifes. When it comes to his decor shots in particular every scene feels cozy, and every set is dressed with just the right amount of clutter to make it feel natural and lived in. The end result is a collection of snapshots that you just want to soak in.
