Wander Away To Tempura

Since it’s not vacation if you don’t put on a swimsuit and do something lovely I decided to spend some time on the waterfront at Tempura Island which just happens to be near the vacation house I’m renting. Convenient, isn’t it? I thought so.

Tempura Island has been here for 10 years,  can you believe it? It’s one of my favorite places for photos, and I was reminded of that today wandering the grounds. It reminds me so much of why Second Life can be such an effective escape for a little while, so much beauty is all around us and in so many forms. It’s a wonder. Continue reading

So Goes May

The month of May might mean flowers and bright colors to you, but to those of us from Indianapolis it only means one important thing.

THE INDY 500.

I’ve written about it before, but let me assure you it’s not changed. Black and white rule the day and I’m delighted to have realized it’s TIME and to be here to celebrate this time of the absence of color. We love black and white, and you might be surprised to learn that despite this being a hot sweaty mess of a race day, there are a lot of quite elegant events that accompany it – and everyone, I mean EVERYONE is dressed in Black and White.

Kowloon To You Too

I decided to head out for some adventure exploring today and I wasn’t disappointed at all. Kowloon was a really well planned out city-scape and I’m going to be going back to explore more. I met some locals there down in one of the sublevel gathering areas who treated me to some of the local fair – roasted scorpion! Continue reading

Does it Get Weirder Than Baked on Mesh?

I continue to play with the concept of Bakes On Mesh (WHY CAN’T WE CALL IT BAKED ON MESH?) and decided there was no more fun place to see what I could do than at my good friend Putrid’s place.

Putrid likes weird, and I like Putrid. It’s perfect.

I wandered around her club Sticky Fingers and was quite entertained to realize that my tattoos still show up properly over my “BAKED ON MESH SKIN”. I’d like to understand how the layering of all that works but no, I’m just going to pass and say WELL DONE THIS IS AWESOME.

Mesh body, mesh clothes, mesh shoes, applier tights and tattoos. Am I happy? Yeah I’m pretty happy. Continue reading

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

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

Hoppy Easter Or Some Other Overdone Trite Title

I love Easter and am delighted to be able to make you groan with silly pose sets and super trite blog titles.

This is how I roll. Are you new here? WELCOME TO MY SLIFE I’m intensely silly.

But to be serious – it’s EASTER folks and that means candy and pink/pastel explosion as far as the eye can see. I’m super, super into this, as you can imagine.

I’ve found all the eggs the bunny left for me and now I’m ready for some treats! It’s going to be a great month I think. Well, I hope. If I can eat all this candy, that is. Continue reading
