We Only Come Out At Night

hi! i know i don’t talk enough on my blog anymore. life has really eaten away at my fun free time for a while now. i want to try and actually start blogging a bit on here more than just posting a pic and some credits.

how do you like the way i have been blogging so far this year? i really enjoy making the pretty main pic and then the un-photoshopped layout pics. do you like it?

for some of these photos i have also uploaded the full image that i make before i cut it down into a blog sized photo, those are on my flickr so please do check them out as well!

in this look i am showing off something i made for goth fair as well as an awesome skirt that my best friend fenni crispien has created. she is starting up her brand three crow hill on marketplace for now. you can find her stuff here: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/7725

its the sith

so i was going to be a proper star wars dork and do a post on “may the fourth” but i didn’t get my stuff together in time to skirt in under the line. that’s OK though! cause i’m a sith, so may the sith be with you instead.

sith-1

the reason this took so long is that i tried to find a true sith skin for this post but could not find any orangy red skins with appliers anywhere! get on that skin maker world! (or point me in the right direction if you know of one). true sith (the species) are a reddish colour and have funky face protrusions. obviously i could not find that either 🙁 so i am a scummy humanoid with sith blood instead.

sith-2

fatewear made this fancy cloak which i apologize you cannot see very well because i wanted these pics to be kinda dark. but after damien made this cloak he posted a pic of him wearing it with a light saber and i realized THIS WAS PERFECT! you can use it for non-starwars related outfits too but why would you when you can be a sith! (or a jedi.. if you must…) the cloak is rigged to your body so it moves with you, it has several options in the hud, allowing you to control the length and look of the cloak as well as hood up or down (and even a hood only option!), and the colour.

sith-3

this cloak is a perfect example of why you should keep your old sculpty hair! unless you want to look like your hair is all slicked back, or shaved off, sculpty hair still has its uses. this old style from raw house fit almost perfectly under this hood and only required a few pieces to be shoved inside my head. something i could not do with any of the mesh hair styles i own because they are all one piece.

to finish off this post i have some awesome snaps i got last night that weren’t meant for blogging photos but they looked pretty cool and i wanted to share :p

sway with me

sway-with-me

ok i’m being a jerk by posting a bunch of items that are not available in stores because they were event items BUT the main important part of this post is the dress, and these shoes.

a long time creator in second life named sway dench is about to undergo brain surgery, and some lovely people in sl have gathered together to take up donations for her. it never ceases to amaze me by how kind and thoughtful people in second life can be.

the dress and shoes i am wearing are both available from dilly dolls at the event right now. this dress is especially interesting because your chest is actually a mesh prim! and its gorgeous! i had no issue tinting the prim to my skin tone, and it looks like its just part of my avatar. no odd seams to deal with here.

the chest is attached to the shrug and there are three sizes so you don’t have to worry about getting stuck with huge boobs if that’s not your thing. i’m currently wearing size 1, however even size 3 is tastefully done and not overly cartoony large like some prim breasts tend to be.

i hope this becomes a trend in mesh clothing because sl boobs suck!

anyway, you should go and pick up this dress! and these shoes! and everything else at the Together for Sway event!

dusting off the doll

here’s my numbers?

last year strawberry singh asked us to post some of our shape numbers (the ones we felt comfy sharing) to see the differences in shapes all around sl. this year she’s asking for them again now that everyone has had to shift things around due to mesh’s release and the crazy sizing problems we’ve had to endure because of LL’s lack of a mesh deformer.

digits again!

this year she included a link to a ruler which of course still makes me look deceptively tall! i get asked if i’m up for adoption as a teen avatar a lot so i know for a fact i am not tall at all!

a few things have changed due to mesh sizing. i have only listed the numbers here that were on my digits post last year but i have done a bit of house keeping on my shape to perfectly fit a size “M” in the standard sizes. they did not affect my over all shape and i am comfortable with what i changed. it was interesting to see that both my boobs and butt have gotten BIGGER since last year! but i’m not complaining :p

now for berry’s questions:

How has the introduction of mesh affected your SL, if at all? Are you open to wearing mesh often or do you still shy away from it?

i love mesh, i’m enjoying learning to make mesh items as well as enjoying the creativity of creators who are offering mesh items now. mesh hair is a major plus since it no longer goes though my boobs. mesh corsets are way better than sculpty ones, and there are so many other cool creations being made because of it! i think mesh has affected my sl in a positive manner 😀

Have you changed your shape to fit into mesh? If so, did you go bigger or smaller?

i have changed a few things, in some aspects i had to go larger, in other aspects i had to minimize some things, in the end it didn’t make me feel like i looked any different and my numbers only needed a little tweaking to suit the size i prefer to wear.

Do you think the mesh deformer will resolve a lot of the issues people seem to have with mesh and will it encourage you to wear mesh more often, if you don’t already?

i think it will resolve some of the issues, and hopefully it will encourage a lot more people to try mesh out instead of just sticking their nose up at it.  i do think it needs a lot more work before its ready for the general public.
