Happy Birthday Cajsa

The first time I ever visited Cajsa at her house, she lived underwater. This isn’t to say she lived in some kind of bubble house underwater, she actually lived underwater. It was the fist time it had occurred to me that since the rules of breathing were not a necessity any longer that one could just live in a house underwater – just for fun.

But she did. Continue reading

So, Blueberry has a new gorgeous piece of clothing out. It’s called Liza, and it’s supposed to be a dress. However, my toon being very modest, there’s no way she would ever wear it as one. I therefore had to find her something to wear under it. I tried all my jeans, and leggings, and nothing fit. It made me sad. Then someone suggested Izzie’s, and sure enough, I found exactly what I needed.

You know these Ingenue flats I found at Shoetopia, and was telling you about in my previous post? Turns out the “Cotton” colour can be tinted, so now I have, in addition to the fatpack, a billion possibilities to match my outfits!

I love, love love my Simone head. It was my first Bento head and so far I haven’t found one that I can shape to look like what I want, as much as this one. But I find the poses a bit mean looking, for the most part. So when I found that new HUD from Happy Dispatch, I was eager to try it. You can animate the eyes and mouth separately, and adjust the amount of animation you want, like there’s that one smile that makes me look like I’m about to eat you, but if I tone it down, it’s lovely! You should go try it.

There’s Magic Afoot – BakesOnMesh Magic

So yesterday I saw Sydd Sinister on FB talking about BakesOnMesh. She’s linked some info from Sasy and as I read long in the commentary something became incredibly clear.

MAGIC IS COMING.

If you’re old enough you remember when you could wear your jacket on the pants layer and it was a good idea because you needed the jacket layer for your tank top because your underwear layer was for you tattoo of a dying shark saying something in Japanese.

It was just a different kind of confusing, I promise you, we understood it. Then Mesh came along and saved us all and we saw the light and got rid of our clumpy cave man hands and feet and then our heads and finally our bodies and ALL THE THINGS and life was smooth and beautiful.

Apparently someone said “What if we could find a way to slap all those old system layers onto your mesh and make them look nice?” And someone else said “Yes let’s do that.”

I present to you GIDGE – Wearing her mesh with “System Layers” slapped on top. I’m wearing an old Pink Fuel Skin (Alyx), Izzie’s Lipgloss, and a shirt & jeans from Sn@tch. I’m also wearing some cute mesh shoes from ANE (Shoetopia) and some hair from Tableau Vivant.

Mesh meets History.

How does it work? Well you gotta have OMEGA appliers for the stuff you want to apply, and a special hud that makes it all work.

It’s THIS BAD BOY RIGHT HERE.

You also need the right project viewer. 

Get the one that is called BAKESONMESH Channel. That’s the right onw.

I struggled a bit because it’s my preference to just click around. 🙂 THAT’S HOW I ROLL. It tells you to do things like “remove your alpha” that your old body is now cloaked in. If you don’t – your mesh turns red.  THAT IS A BIT DISCONCERTING.

This is all still BETA. Sometimes my eyes are in the wrong place and kind of bug out. I suspect that’s to do with animations. My mouth looks kinda wrong like the system layer doesn’t sit on it right. AGAIN – BETA.  Last night I had some issues with my Mesh layers not going away properly.

However, all that being said – this is demonstrative that something huge is coming. What people will be able to do with this in  terms of creating is pretty interesting.

I hate my old eyelashes. They were THE BOMB back in the day though. Super cool.

Now. I’m gonna eat and put myself back into regular land.

Testing BakesOnMesh 1

Cajsa gifted me the BakesOnMesh Hud and I’m gonna enjoy playing with it some more. It will be fun to see what has stood the test of time!

I Can Read Your Mind

When I unpacked the new minidress from Baiastice my first reaction was legitimately HOT DAMN. There is a line between sexy and slutty and while many folks jump right over it and leave your whatnot and your tits hanging out here and there, I personally do not care for that.

I like my bits covered.  I was so excited to see this elegant but sexy minidress that I had to try it on and find some new heels and then….

…go to a psychic apparently. Continue reading

02/04/2018

Hello and happy Monday! I’ve done some shopping today and I figured I might as well show you! As a blogger, I am lucky to have early access to Shoetopia, and I found some gorgeous things, starting with those flats from Ingenue. They are perfection. I had to fatpack them as I couldn’t decide on a colour… They are so good everyone is getting them, it seems Gidge just posted about them too! Honestly, 12 colours for 1100l$, that’s not even 100l$ a pair, it’s a steal! Shoetopia opens today at noon SLT.

FaMESHed just opened and is, as usual, completely full, but if you manage to pop there, be sure to try the lovely hair Lamb just released there. It’s so cute, and comes with a styling HUD that allows you to hide or show the built-in hairbase and fiddle with the bangs. It’s also unrigged so if your head is weirdly shaped like mine, you can move it around and make it work!

Every week-end, Maxi Gossamer has some styles out for a discounted price, and this week she has, among other things, that very cool sun necklace. It comes in both long and short size, and you can change it from silver to gold.

I Awoke In A Magical Land

I don’t know how I got there, but I awoke in a magical land filled with beautiful shoes. Whether it was sneakers or the most painful heels – I found something for every style and taste. Waking up in such a wonderland was the perfect way to start my week.

I traveled down it’s hallways to discover that everything was huge or perhaps I was terribly small. Was I in some giant’s lair? Or perhaps just in the grips of an event builder who knew how to make things big enough for people to see even with lag? Amazing how that works… Continue reading
