Hotlips Houlihan

I was excited when Cajsa told me that LEA has a build that recreates the 4077th. If you don’t know MASH you probably don’t get the reference but it was a seminal movie and TV show of the 70s in America. MASH was everything and Hotlips was always one of my favorite characters.

Selfish, self centered, myopic in her vision and fastidiously stuck on “the rules” Hotlips was also a human, caring person underneath. Watching that character build and grow over the years was an interesting transformation. Continue reading

Yearbook Challenge

Yearbook Smile Saying Cheese does not work

Nonconformist of the Year – The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man. – George Bernard Shaw. .

Second Life® Memestress Strawberry Singh has kicked off 2015 with a fun blogger challenge. She asked folks to shoot a high school yearbook picture with a smile – and explain how we achieved that smile. It was not easy, but I did manage a ghost of a smile.

How I Did It: I used a combination of methods, adjusting my face shape, using tips from Melanie Kidd.  Then I turned on slow animations following Gogo’s tips on slow motion animation and Iris Ophelia’s tips on lip-synching.

Saying Cheese did not work at all!

Yearbook SmileI also tried using emotes on the AnyPose HUD I use to control my eyes in combination with the lip-synching and slow animation. OH well! PhotoShop can help.

Innovation

112014_008

One of the most satisfying pleasures in Second Life® is witnessing moment of true innovation – the imaginative brainstorms of creative people that change our ideas of what is possible. We did not have prim hair or flexi hair until someone thought of it. And then everyone thought, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Once someone thinks of it – it seems so obvious, doesn’t it?

Someone had to come up with the idea of a sculpted foot in a shoe. The Slink hands and feet were an innovation that sparked an explosion of mani/pedis and Slink-compatible shoes. I have seen capes and jackets before that come with poses so your arms go in the pockets, so when I first saw this cape from ISON, I did not realize how innovative it is. But those arms in my pockets are part of the cape. It comes with a collar and gloves that can be set to a range of colors using a HUD or turned off altogether. It’s magnificent and innovative and I wage we will see more outfits with built in gloves.

The hat hair from Little Bones is a perfect match, controlled by a HUD as well, from which I selected a red hat and teal band and silver metal findings.  Continue reading

Casual Friday in The Cold

The cold chill this week sent me running for my sweaters in all lives. This fuzzy amazing sweater from Ison is always going to sit on the top of my sweater shelf, it’s so gorgeously textured, I have to love it.  My jeans from SOMNIA that have appliers for my Physique body are a perfect fit with big sweaters like this. Mixing up applier clothes with mesh has become one of my new favorite things.  Continue reading

And Now The Rest Of The Story

Beginning and ending my day in lingerie is a recipe for a perfect day. This new slip dress from ISON for COLLABOR88 fit the bill for my end of day stretch and relax time.  I had such a good, if not tiring, birthday. It’s amazing sometimes when you look around and realize how wonderful it is to be here, and all of the things you can do in this world, isn’t it? Continue reading

My Favorite Hair Fair Bandanas (plus a few I made)

Once a year, us non-creators are challenged to toss our bandanas in the ring along with other creators such as Lelutka, TuttiFruti, MiaMai and others. For me, it’s always a fresh reminder of why I am not a creator, but I manage to pull something out my hat (or bandana).
