London 2012 Olympics

Posted in Poses,Sport by Piper Hanriot on August 5, 2012

The London 2012 Olympics is in full swing and everyone seems to be enjoying it.  One of my favourite sports that I like to follow is the gymnastics.  Many moons ago now when I was a mere 8 years old I took up gymnastics as an after school activity for a few years and up until a few years ago, I could still cart-wheel, although not perfectly.

Having searched the SL marketplace for a few Olympic trinkets, I found a fantastic balance beam prop with poses by Embody, which for me is very exciting, so I thought I’d bring a small piece of the Olympics to SL with some photos from this pose set.

There are 6 poses in total in this set.  I have chosen 3 of my favourites to show you.  I wish I had been this good on the balance beam in RL.

As well as the balance beam, Embody also have another set of 5 gymnast poses.  I decided to show a few of these, incorporating them into a floor routine.

My chosen apparel for this photo shoot is a leotard by the fabulous designers at Spankies, only available on the SL Marketplace.  They have a glorious array of leotard for a whole host of countries around the globe.  My wonderful Spankies team GB leotard came complete with a London 2012 gold medal, a proud achievement if only in my virtual world.
