aurora 4

I don’t look the best in this picture but I have so many feelings for this.

One time I was in Disney World with my family and a friend of mine. My friend had never been to Disney but I had, it was my 20th time going at that point. My friend was interested in characters more than rides, she insisted on meeting every Disney princess before we went home.

Well, we were in Epcot one day, and my family had no interest in tagging along with us to go meet tons of characters, so they went off and did their own thing while my friend and I traveled country to country meeting characters. The final character we met that day was Aurora, and I will never forget that. It was a few weeks before my 16th birthday and I was wearing one of the “Happy Birthday!” pins with my name on it - and she called attention to it immediately. She got excited and she asked my age. When I answered “16”, she clapped her hands and smiled. “I met my prince on my 16th birthday! Have you met your prince yet?”

My heart froze for a second, I was caught off guard. But looking into a happy princess’ face in silence is hard, and I responded, without thinking; “I’m actually into princesses.” Her face didn’t change from the smile, in fact it got brighter.

“Oh! Then have you met your princess then?”

That was the single most relieving thing I had ever heard. I’m a lesbian and I’m out to my friends, not my family. I had tried coming out to my family at that point, only to be met with “You’re too young to know that.” Multiple times. I was forced back into the closet at home where I stayed, and still am.

But getting the chance to openly say that to a princess, and have her happily respond was amazing. I was happier than imaginable. And even though, no, I hadn’t met my princess yet, I found one that loves me.

Aurora gained a special place in my heart after that. She hugged me and I could barely keep myself from crying while the pictures were being taken. I will never forget that.

Would you mind showing us how you edit your Adventures of Aurora photos? Do you use reshade? The photos and editing is AMAZING i'm in love <3

🍁 How I edit “The Adventures of Aurora” 🍁

All righty! I think this is will be relatively simple, but if you don’t understand something feel free to send me a message! You will need Photoshop to follow this! Let’s begin, shall we?

1. Reshade 

I do use Reshade! I have found this stunning preset by @simemi and it is amazing, it makes everything look brighter and more vivid! It’s a must-have, really!

2. Topaz Clean 

I use and abuse Topaz Clean, it is one of my favorite things in Photoshop. You can download Topaz Clean here. I use it with the following settings:

3. Curves

All right! First off, I highly recommend you check this amazing post on curves by @bratsims  it taught me everything I know about curves!

I have two sets of curves I use, the one I use for all my screenshots of Aurora:

And the one I use on top of that first set if the picture isn’t bright enough for my liking:

If the picture still doesn’t quite look like I want it to look like, I go to Image>Adjustements>Brigthness/Contrast and adjust those two until I like what I see!

4. Blur & Layer Mask’s

Once again I am going to have to mention one of @bratsims tutorials, please check this one right over here

Essentially, what you want to do is:

  1. Duplicate your layer;
  2. On the duplicate go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur> and set it to something in between 1 and 2 pixels. 1.5 is a solid middle but sometimes I do 2 as well! Just adjust it to your liking; 
  3. On the bottom right corner next to fx there is this tiny square, click on that to add a layer mask;
  4. Then, using the brush tool, you will “delete the blur” on the things/sims that you don’t want to be “blurred out”.

Again, please check the tutorial I linked above, it has pictures which makes it is much easier to follow if you’re new to layer masks and/or how they work.

5. Cropping 

When all of this is done, I select the crop tool and insert the following ratio: 1366 x 700. And that’s it! Hope this helped 😊💓
