The ocean is a desert with its life underground


One of the most enigmatic songs of all time popped into my head while trying to conjure up a title for this post. I was sim-hopping through the many Linden Endowment for the Arts sims and stopped off at one (LEA17) that struck me as having a gorgeous, high desert atmosphere that might be fun for playing around with shadows. I used the Barcelona windlight setting though I fiddled around with the time of day and where east was relative to the sim just to arrange the lighting more conveniently. My outfit was great for trekking about – though that Maitreya top actually has a long, draping open back.


The pants are a fabulous pair of beautifully textured summer wool. And there’s available from Ingenue at Collabor88, so you should hop over to get them right away. They come in a FAB FIVE mix of colors. These are great mix and match pants.


I wore good hiking boots from Leverocci, not wanting to turn my ankle on the plants and rocks and things. Now, I had to increase the size of the shoes by 10% using the resize script so the mesh of the pants did not show through. Given that fitting one mesh piece with another can be a real headache, I thought that was a minor adjustment.


My jewelry is from Kunglers, the hair and hat combination is Lelutka and the skin is Glam Affair’s Leah. This actually shows how well made the Maitreya top is. Many mesh creators are making the mesh a little too thick, not thin like fabric, but thick as though it’s made of clay. If I can’t fit a necklace over your mesh, it’s too thick. This makes it hard for someone to wear more than one mesh piece at a time unless they all come from the same store.
