I am sure more than one person feels like telling folks to take a chill pill, but luckily this month that phrase won’t be a rude dismissal and instead is the very wise and sound advice sending folks to Collabor88 where the theme is Chill Pill and the colors and aesthetic are Nineties Brights. Perfect exemplars of the Chill are these bangles and the necklace from Maxi Gossamer for Collabor88. The fun and funky nails with the googly eyes are from FLAIR. They even have a narrow stripe of orange down the outsides.
And I am mostly decked out in the chill clothing and accessories from Collabor88. The top, skirt and belt are a single piece dress from VinCue. It comes in a range of colors, full of the fun of mixing wild colors together. It’s perfect for hanging out at the It’s Only Fashion blog office.
While scientists at CERN have been designing an experiment to see if Newton’s apple might fall upwards, they results are in. Scientists at Peqe Laboratories have already developed a method of collecting antimatter without annihilating the planet and proven that yes, indeed, antimatter does fall upwards. How else to explain the anti-gravity powers of the Nine dress from Peqe? What keeps that dress up? Anti-matter, obviously.
While noting that this dress does almost miraculously fall upward, it does have a couple of issues that make you trying the demo particularly essential if you are one of those people who will not adjust your shape on single digit. She kept the alpha as small as possible, so you will probably need to adjust the torso just a bit. I had to reduce my cleavage a bit, making the breasts a little farther apart so there was no alpha showing along the neckline. In certain poses, a bit of skin pokes through right below the bottom of the neckline and at the back of the skirt. It is perfect 85% of the time or so, but there are a few poses that break through. The only option for 100% coverage is making the alpha disappear the entire body under the dress. Some designers and fashionistas like that, some prefer the body to remain as whole as possible. That is solely a matter of personal preference, not good or bad design. Antimatter can make it stay on the shoulders, but it does not fix everything.
You might have thought that it was held up by the back of the dress, but see…It’s clear that it plunges past normal bounds both back and front and would naturally slide off the shoulders and bare far more than is Safe for I Heart SL if not for antimatter. Continue reading →
My computer has been hobbling along lately, in need of a new graphics card and system upgrades. That is one reason why I shoot fewer pictures with shadows and projectors. I can crash if I even think about doing that. But the worst symptom is how antisocial my computer has become. Any crowd, even if I drop RenderAvatarMaxVisible to 1 overwhelms and crashes my computer. I can rez about two people before crashing, so when I DJ I zoom in on the wall so I don’t see anyone. Needless to say, huge events like the Arcade Gacha are completely off limits. I saw one item in the shopping guide that I wanted desperately. I did run around to several yard sales on this huge list of gacha yard sales, but the people who are buying the pesca stoles are keeping them. Fortunately, I get by with a little help from my friends. The red plaid stole I wore yesterday was a gift from Gidge and Sylvia Olivier dropped this and a pink version of the Pesca stoles on me. They are certainly my favorite of the Arcade Gacha treasures made even better by virtue of the generosity of friends.
