CAI as in Cairo, Zha as in Asia

There is no greater thrill for a fashionista than to have some design named after them. If you have a name many folks don’t know how to pronounce, it’s even more thrilling because it doesn’t happen very often. So, yes! I was thrilled when Thalia Heckroth named her newest gown in my honor. I was even more thrilled though, seeing it’s modern lines and minimalist style.

THIS IS HALLOWEEN THIS IS HALLOWEEN

I decided to be my own kind of witch this Halloween, making my costume from a gown from BAIASTICE, a beautiful fur coat from Sacha’s Designs, and a FUN free gift from Argrace – HALLOWEEN HAT HAIR !! (They have one for BOYS TOO!) Continue reading

I Left The Window Open

Leaves blowing in are just one danger of leaving open your windows around here. Another would be that you might get burglars, or noobs.  I chanced it and only wound up with a shower of leaves as the fall colors are suddenly everywhere. Continue reading

The Colors of Fall

Autumn has been painting its palette all across Second Life for the past month. I stopped by Izzie’s because it is always one of the most beautiful seasonal sims and sure enough, Izzie’s portrait of autumn is beautiful. In fact, it’s so lovely, I decided to use a paint filter on one of my snaps to turn it into a painting. If you stop by Izzie’s, don’t touch the kitty, she is shy.

Ample AVI ? Hmmm Maybe…

I saw on NWN that AMPLE AVI is having a promotion on a curvier shape called THROE for HALLOWEEN and decided to see how it works with my mesh body. I’ve been toying with being a bit curvier for a few weeks so I thought I’d just give this one a spin since it was only 100L to try. Continue reading

It’s YOUR Second Life

Is there anything sweeter than the joy of a new computer that is awesomer than anticipated? Nope. Awesomer IS a word.  I’m currently in the sweet spot of NEW COMPUTER JOY and it’s hard not to be super happy. I’m not a big badass gaming machine but it’s mine and it works and that’s all I needed from it, frankly.

I spent my Saturday night in both lives, with a book.  Continue reading

And Then WoW Killed My Computer

WoW dropped the prepatch to their next expansion and all hell broke loose in Azeroth. Everyone experienced challenges and problems. I personally experience a problem I didn’t see anyone else have. In the middle of the patch………

BLAM. BSOD. END TIMES PEOPLE END TIMES.  Continue reading

Would you update your viewer in the middle of a photo shoot?

141024 Raw from SL

Normally my answer would be “Hell to the No” but when I was shooting these pictures today, I figured it could not possible get worse and might get better. So when I saw there was a new update, I went for it. I have not been able to save a photo to disk since Monday and was saving raw shots directly from the SL viewer to Flickr. The photos for this post are raw, unedited pictures. They have not even been cropped. I know Flickr has a photo editor, but I don’t like it. Still, it turns out fine. I just like to play with a few little touch ups now and then. I am wearing a fun and adorable sailor sweater and flared skirt from MotiAme that I found at Kustom9 when I dropped by to throw money at Apple Fall, as one does. The sweater comes in gray, brown, blue, black, red and white. The skirt is in black, white and blue. They fit together well and have a lovely early fall feeling – for those days with brisk breezes, a bit of mist in the air and moments of sunshine. October in Oregon.

To Snuggle

Well I got a new nightgown at DON’T PANIC but, it seems to be a used item. It’s kind of, dirty. But I’m really tired, so i’m going to just let it go and wash it tomorrow.  I’m tired, and I’ve got a new little snuggly OOPSIE to cuddle at bed time. I have to admit it’s really cute and goes well with the bunny headband and hair from PLOOM. Continue reading

Crashy McCrasherton

141021

 

So I have been crashing every single time I saved a picture to disk for the last two days, perhaps some new incompatibility arose from upgrading my OS to Yosemite. I will have to figure it out soon, but I didn’t feel like trouble shooting today, so I just save the photos direct to Flickr®. That means these are truly raw photos, not even cropped. I just set the size of the frame inworld and clicked until I got the shot I wanted and so what you see is what you get. As to why it crashes saving to disk but not to Flickr, those are the mysteries of computers and graphics cards and code.
