Taking the plunge – the mesh body

Ok so, I’ve finally gone and done it.  I finally got a mesh body.
I got a bunch of demos, tried a variety and finally settled on the Physique Mesh Body by SLink.  I like the body quite a bit, I already have the feet and hands, and I trust that the body will work for me. I found that I could play with the SL sliders and adjust various things to make it as close to my original shape as possible (already pretty much a standard medium).  I already had the Lara Hurley applier for my favorite skin, so that worked too.  I realized a couple of things as I started taking pictures of my hot new body (because let’s face facts..all bodies in SL are hot).  I would be spending a lot less time in photoshop fixing ragged edges on my avatar.  This can only be a good thing.  Clothing FITS me better.  Siddean provides free updates.  In other words, it’s all good, I can hardly go wrong. I thought that the price was reasonable!   And I’m already so far behind the curve on mesh that it was time to just do it.  I don’t know if I’ll involve myself with Mesh heads, but almost certainly NOT until the day they become editable.   So about the outfit.  I’ve had the pants and shoes for a while, and probably have worn them before in a post.  It’s the top I’m in love with.  Made by a new to me designer, Just Because, it fits wonderfully, and I love the color combo.  I expect to see great things from this designer in the future.  Anywho, I took a whole series of shots that you can find on my Flickr, and as always, outfit credits are below the pics.

Practical Magic in Second Life

I have a few movies that are on my all time favorites, and Practical Magic is one of them. I’ve always loved the movie, because the idea of a family of witches living in a stunning house by the Sea is well…the life. In the outfit I’m wearing today, there’s a bit of simplicity, but I like to think it’s something Gillian would wear. The baby dragon on my shoulder is because it’s Second Life and I CAN! It’s from one the designers that I personally fangirl, Halogen Magic and Half Deer, a perfectly placed whimsy of a shop in Second Life.These are some of my spoils from recent shows, specifically Arcade and Uber.  I had a bit of trouble taking these pics. I couldn’t find the right windlight, couldn’t figure out the right angles with my baby dragon. Ah well. Enjoy, the credits are below the pics.  I also posted these on my Flickr, and used a fun comic book filter on them because I love comic books.

Orange is the new black….

Sorry couldn’t resist the pun.  This dress is probably being blogged all over the SLUniverse, because it’s perfect.  It comes in a variety of colors (actually TONS of colors), but I’m partial to orange, so there you are.  It’s from Tres Blah, literally the only place I’ll buy anything without trying the demo (of course I don’t RECOMMEND this, I’m just saying it always holds true for me…). It also includes fittings for Maitreya and SLink bodies.  The hair is from Elikatira, and I snagged it at last weeks FLF, I hope you did too.  The shoes are also FLF, but this weeks, and all I can say is, try not to miss Fifty Linden Fridays in Second Life. It’s always a fun, goofing around shopping experience where you’ll see people you know or haven’t seen in a while!  It’s always featured on Seraphim, so go look at the gallery on Seraphim, and make your decisions quickly. I’m not sure if either the hair or the shoes will be in the stores at full price now.  I think they are both worth full price.  Jewelry is an older piece of my own that you can get on marketplace.  The full series of these pics are on my Flickr.  As always, full credits and the Second Life buying guide are below the pics! Oh and a small style tip, Continue reading

Show some skin…

So I confess, this whole outfit came about because of the Teefy Bustier. It’s just about perfect to me. I love the way it’s made, textured, looks. I love the nude/pink color. I actually spent a bit of time trying to finding a fun skirt that worked with it. The skirt is from Blueberry and I love it too. This is probably a bit less clothing that I typically wander around the grid in. I’m usually out in a t-shirt and cut-offs. The hair I’m wearing is from Ohmai Salon, and I picked it up at Hair Fair! As always, credits are below the pics and for the full set, check out my flickr!

Oh Taber, my Taber…


I have always lived in the beta sims, except for a short stint (I think) in Amira. I used to own quite a bit of Taber, and my old land is now owned by an old friend of mine in SL. I missed it so I flew over there to take a look and see what’s he’s been doing with it. Taber is right next to the Natoma sim, which houses the Ivory Tower of Prims. In Taber itself, you’ll find many objects that were created within the first year of Second Life’s existence. Kind of cool, the original windmill, the Fairchild park, and other cool objects. I like the historical significance of the area, and while it might seem really old school, it reminds me of the excitement of the old days. Of course, I’m wearing a few new things. I rarely change my skin, but I’m rockin Glam Affairs FLF special from this past Friday.  A great dress from Fishy Strawberry, new hair courtesy of Hair Fair, and some great Pure Poison sandals. Full credits below the pics, check out the whole series of pics on my flickr.

So my favorite colors are blue and green. I love orange of course, but blue and green just do it for me. I saw this beautiful top on Plurk from a creator friend, and had to have. I love love love the colors. I saw the skirt at Collabor88 and thought, KISMET!  The hair is new from Magika another one of my favorite designers. I did a bit of photoshop to bring all the colors into alignment, but they are generally what is shown, but as always, get a demo! See below for outfit credits and you can see a few more pics from this series on my Flickr. Follow me! I’ll follow you back I swear!
