Bento makes me happier than I thought it would. My happiness comes from things like these poses from Gingerfish that have Bento hand movements built right in. When Bento first came out, I was dubious, afraid that more complexity would strain my already struggling computer to the breaking point. I also moaned about one more thing to learn. I dawdled. I did not rush to buy bento hands immediately. I waited hoping it would all be figured out by someone else or even just go away. But it didn’t and both Slink and Maitreya released hands optimized for Bento and my computer did not fold over in a faint. So here we are. Animators are busy adapting and creating poses that capitalize on this new expressiveness and I am wondering why I was such a grouch about it. I guess I must be getting crotchety in my old SLage.
I kind of fell in several sorts of love with the skirt and jacket from Emery. The Stella skirt has two options with a latte stripe or a pearl stripe. The Bastet jacket has bold lapels that give it a relaxed, casual air while being very fashion conscious. They are at Collabor88 this month and a knotted tee is also sold to accompany them. I decided to go a different way, though, and chose this top from Baiastice.
I stopped off at Gacha Gardens and picked up some backdrops for photos from RAMA. I love that they used materials, so the sunshine sets it ablaze. Continue reading →
I wasn’t going to post this picture as I took it playing with shadows and goofing off last night, however that changed after I read plurk this morning.
Morgana Hilra who blogs over at So Hawt SL is having one of those days. One of those days where she feels pressured to blog differently because of X or whatever. Someone is in her ear, or she’s feeling like she needs to change.
I think it’s great to grow and change but the idea that someone would pressure someone else into making their blog something that it isn’t is uncool. It’s downright wrong. Continue reading →
I always like to bust up sets and mix and match because it shows that the clothing people make in Second Life is more versatile than we think. For that reason, even though the Irina cropped sweater I am wearing from The Secret Store comes with a beautiful skirt that coordinates with it, I chose to wear a different skirt to show it can be done. Of course, you know and I know it can be done, but a reminder is useful. Continue reading →
New Year New Me continues to resonate thanks to Collabor88 this month. Today I’m going to stretch and bend my mesh to some Yoga thanks to this amazingly cute bag from LaGyo. I’m going to be comfy in these top and bottom set from House of Hucci that’s sexy and functional for some serious inner peace.
What I need to do though is burrow a tunnel over to the studio. Even though it’s just a short land bridge across the islands to where Cajsa built our work out gym, it’s gonna be a cold run.
Two VERY cute items to pick up this month at Collabor88 for you gym rats are – first this bracelet also from LaGyo – a close up.
Perfect for the gymrat you love, even if it’s yourself!
And this necklace from Yummy.
Neclace from Yummy
And now I’m out to make my mesh healthier. Wish me luck!
There’s all sorts of angelic options at The Arcade, but I did not take the usual route. I did add wings from The Secret Garden (tsg) but instead of rest of their angelic creation, I went the naughty angel route with this deliciously sexy Show Time dress from Blueberry.
This dress is much too short and bootylicious to be standard issue angelwear, but I don’t believe in standard issue clothing. Continue reading →
Fall is sweeping the US and most of us not on the upside down part of the earth. My typist had taken a much needed brain break and had left me to my own designs for quite a while but luckily the cozy good things at Collabor88 this month kept me warm and also quite pretty.
Among the other great things that have happened in SL, one of my favorite skinners Sachi Vixen released appliers for Catwa called MORGANA. I’m wearing her tone called TA – or as I like to call it, pasty white girl. I like the options she gives with her appliers, but I wish her HUD was bigger – I can’t actually read any of the words on my screen. I just click till i sort out what they are. That doesn’t matter in the end when the result is this pretty. Continue reading →
