Hi guys!

So it’s finally time for the last part of my OC Photo Challenge. It’s taken me a while, especially compared to the last posts. Not because I haven’t had fun, but because I had a bit too much fun with some of these topics. So I got massively carried away. Like, you have no clue how badly I got carried away – you’ll see. Another thing is that I’m studying for my exam (exams, actually – two in one day, yikes) and energy is a bit low. I have a big backlog of written chapters and one chapter written and edited with photos, so my hope is still that I’ll be able to keep up the schedule. But if I’m not as active as usual, that’s probably why.

Anywayyyy, with all of that out of the way, if all this challenge nonsense means nothing to you, I’ve made four other parts of this that you can check here: Part the first, part the second, part the third, part the fourth.

So, shall we look at some pictures?

#13 – In a Historical Outfit

Sooooo, remember how I said I got carried away big time? Well, the thing is… I didn’t know which historical period to go with! I thought the 50s outfits you can find are super cool and awesome-looking and Gina would rock it. But on the other hand, there’s a lot of 20s CC as well, which would also be cool. So, how’s a girl to choose?

Well, I didn’t. I did both.

And not only did I do both, I did different outfits for both themes.

For these shots, I used Lila’s wonderful Neon Diner because well… I’m not actually great at building… anything. Also, it just looks incredible. As you can tell, the lighting in this place looks like something straight out of a dream. So you know, probably go look at Lila’s stuff some more – after all, she made it and all I did was download it and place a character. *Shrug*

The next few pics are taken in the same diner and these are because I wanted to try a cuter outfit as well. Of course, Gina completely rocks it as well.

And finally, the pictures that I’m a little obsessed with. For these, Enzo got to join in on the historical fun, too:

Believe me when I say, I could have spent five years editing these photos, so I just kind of had to stop myself before it got (even more) out of hand. You don’t even know how many AU ideas I have because of these photos. Like – 20’s Agatha Christie style cosy murder mystery with cute detective Enzo and Gina? BE STILL MY HEART.

So uh… safe to say, this got out of hand. That was a lot of pictures. Forgive me.

#14 – Goth Style

Don’t worry, though, the next two sets aren’t nearly as bad. I guess I was just a little exhausted after the historical pics (do you know how long I spent on Enzo’s detective office? I don’t have time for this send help). Anyway, so this one I had looked forward to, and it was pretty fun to just let my angsty teen out.

Not to mention, I got to play with coloured lights. šŸ˜› But who knew it was so hard to find goth style outfits of good quality?! Like, where are all the angsty Tumblr teens and why aren’t they making ts3 CC?!

#15 – Clothes Swap with Another Character

And so, finally, we made it to the end. This one I almost regretted putting in the challenge for a bit because I wasn’t sure if I could do anything fun with it. I considered doing a Gina and Vittoria swap, but it would just be Gina in some casual wear and Vittoria in crop tops – I don’t think either are outrageous. Gina and Carlotta was another thing I considered, but their styles aren’t so different either – it would just be a colour swap. But then of course, I thought that the character who’s most different to Gina would be Rosalia, Enzo’s sister. It’s kind of fun, too – poor Lia, she would be so uncomfortable!

But first, in regular outfits. I chose my favourite outfits I’ve put together for them.

And finally, the swap:

I do feel sorry for Lia, but Gina looks great as usual, of course. If it wasn’t for her temper, she would be able to pass as a fancy rich lady no problem. šŸ˜›

Thank You for Looking!

That was the end of my OC Photo Challenge and I’ve got to say, I had a ton of fun with these different themes. Of course, I went massively overboard for almost all of them and I came up with like fifty AUs that I’ll never be doing, but then that’s the idea – being inspired is the name of the game. šŸ™‚

I hope you’ve enjoyed having a look at the photos I did for these and if you’re ever inspired to do it yourself, do say the word so I can have a look. The others who have done it on Tumblr are super cool and creative as well and I love seeing the different ways people interpret the themes and add their own special flair.

Thank you so much for checking this out and I’ll see you in the next post.

These are so fun to look at and Iā€™m sure just as fun to do.

    Thank you, Audrey. šŸ™‚ I did have a lot of fun making these. Way too much fun, probably!

They are so pleasing to look at šŸ™‚
As for the goth clothes, I think there’s a creator called saliwa on TSR who has made many goth/ sexy leather clothing, if you don’t already know her. I think Gina would rock it! And yeah, you’re right, she looks fab in everything, though definitely a bit fake in Lia style clothes.
Congratulations on completing the challenge!

    Thank you, dear. ^_^
    Ha, ha, well there you have it – next time I need something, I’ll make sure to ask you if you know of any. I’m honestly kind of bad at finding CC, lol. šŸ˜€
    Ha, ha, knowing Gina, she definitely doesn’t look like she fits in Lia’s clothes. But yeah, she fits in nearly everything. šŸ™‚
    Thank you! <3

I’m so sorry I’m so late!!! šŸ˜­ But, in my defense, I was away for the weekend (and yesterday) and had a shitty signal… but I’m here now! šŸ˜‰
As Jowita said, Gina looks good in literally everything, oh my god šŸ˜ I think the rockabilly ones are my favorites, they look so good with her tattos! And of course that diner setting is to die for! <3 And of course the 20's ones are stunning all over šŸ˜šŸ˜
Congratulations on completing this challenge! I had so much fun looking those gorgeous pictures! <3 <3

    NotJustaBook · June 5, 2019 at 4:23 pm

    Ha, ha, don’t worry about it. šŸ™‚ We all have things we need to do!
    I really loved doing the rockabilly themed pics, especially in Lila’s gorgeous diner – the lighting is a dream. <3 šŸ™‚ I had so much fun with all the historical ones!
    Thank you very much. šŸ˜€ It was so much fun to do!

This. Is. Amazing. Gina does look great no matter what she’s wearing. Poor Lia, though. lol

Congratulations on completing this challenge! It looks like you had a lot of fun, and it all turned out beautifully! <3

    NotJustaBook · June 5, 2019 at 4:24 pm

    Thank you, Kym. šŸ˜€ And yeah, she great in nearly everything – Lia isn’t so fortunate, though. šŸ˜›
    And thank you again – I did have sooo much fun doing this. šŸ™‚

I bet you put in a lot of time not only editing, but also setting up the backgrounds – just as with the flower shots, but I forgot to mention it as the pics got me all absorbed. I think I prefer rockabilly Gina, she really looks the part!

    NotJustaBook · June 16, 2019 at 8:38 am

    Oh yeah, I spend waaaay too long setting up backgrounds. The detective’s office in the 20’s pics, lemme tell you – spent actual ages, ha, ha. šŸ™‚
    I think you’re right – Gina does look like she’d fit in the 50’s. šŸ™‚
    Thank you for the kind words, Freja. <3

      freja64 · June 16, 2019 at 9:06 am

      Just continue doing your photo shootings, they are awesome!

greencatssims · June 22, 2019 at 10:43 pm

Stunning pictures, as always! Gina looks beautiful in everything.
