27/07/2018 – The Heat Goes On…

As my UK friends complain about a 22°C “heat wave” (71°F), and another one in Arizona tells me it’s in the hundreds F where she lives, I, somewhere in the middle, struggle to sleep and suffer next to the fan all day. Anyone telling me global warming isn’t real must be up for an earful! Anyway, I am slowly going through the lovely things I haven’t had the chance to show you, and here are a few of them.

Shut Up and Drive

I had to have the PINK Convertible from Consignment at THE ARCADE this month and as a result, my friends got cars. YAY for my friends right? But I DID end up with the pink eventually which is really all that matters.

I should get a garage for it, don’t you think? Continue reading

12/06/2018 – Vintage Fair – Part 7

Honestly, this year’s Vintage Fair is just the gift that keeps on giving. Digging through the many items the designers sent, I find more and more lovely things every day. And as I said in a previous post, I’m only showing you the things I love. Not saying the rest isn’t good, but if you know me, I’m not into very sexy clothing or lingerie. Other’s will show those much better than I would… You may want to take a look at Ashia Tomsen’s blog, for instance.

Magical Forests and Comfortable Boots

I decided to take a hike for my Saturday afternoon activity. CAN YOU BELIEVE that in an inventory of ALMOST 140k items I don’t own one single item called “hiking boots”?  I, like you dear reader, am incredulous of this fact yet here we are. I didn’t own a pair and since I was off on vacation and CLEARLY can’t just teleport to a shop to pick up a pair I had to make due with what I had in my suitcase inventory.

Luckily I had JUST thing thing from ISON – perfectly suited to protect my feet from nymphs or sprites or bugs or whatever it was that is currently inhabiting this place I’m staying for the weekend. Continue reading

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

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!

Bring On The New Year

I couldn’t decide what to wear for my New Year’s Eve. I wasn’t sure I was going to go out or not, you see. But it turned out my friend Putrid was out dancing while Oakley spun tunes and I couldn’t resist. Luckily I had put on “what if I go out” clothes before I logged out last time. Continue reading

Junbug Annhilator

Junbug can be fun to pick up on FLF because they often have lovely gowns and 50L is a steal for their pretties. I popped over there very early AM while this dress was still out and snatched it up.

Now I just need somewhere to take it dancing. I’ve got a slight quibble as the drop sleeve on the shoulder intersects with the arm depending on my arm position, but I suppose for 50L it’s only a very slight quibble.  Continue reading

So Much Sunday

They say you shouldn’t drink alone and I suppose that’s true, I can tend to get maudlin or too happy or sometimes both things depending on the time of day.  My Sunday had a lot of shopping and some visiting planned but I only got to the shopping, so I decided to stay in and have some dinner and tv alone.

It felt like a great plan at the time.

Halfway into the bottle of red though I just began to feel like I’d wasted a day and maybe I should’ve gotten more done. Who knows our SL time runs so fast, it’s difficult to get to everything, or heck to anything some days, with all the body switch and head switching I do.

Sigh, I think I wasted my day. Isn’t it a terrible feeling? There was only one solution for it. Watch movies and cry.  Continue reading
