Jazz is smooth and cool. Jazz is rage. Jazz flows like water. Jazz never seems to begin or end. Jazz isn’t methodical, but jazz isn’t messy either. Jazz is a conversation, a give and take. Jazz is the connection and communication between musicians. Jazz is abandon. – Nat Wolff
Jazz stands for freedom. It’s supposed to be the voice of freedom: Get out there and improvise, and take chances, and don’t be a perfectionist – leave that to the classical musicians. – Dave Brubeck
PocketGacha is starting it’s September Round on September 15, 2017. KraftWork has made a beautiful Shotgun Jazz Club. The craftsmanship of this collection is beyond beautiful and is a must have for those music lovers as well as lovers of all things vintage.
I also did a teaser video of the Shotgun Jazz Club Gacha Set by KraftWork which you can watch above. I really enjoyed putting it together and how this collection was able to inspire me to create something that I am truly proud of.

Currently Apple Fall is having an amazing sale inworld; where items are marked to 25, 50 or 75L only. Please note that giftcards are not included for the sale; those are still full price. Also the sale is only inworld and not on Marketplace. The sale started on Monday July 17, 2017 and will be going until Friday July 21, 2017. There are so many amazing deals at the sale; that everyone should take a moment and check out. I’ve also personally found 15 items in the mainstore that were marked down to 0L. Free everyone!, of those items; a few were plants and one was the Apple Fall – New York Studio Apartment. The Studio Apartment has a menu where you can change the texture of the walls & floor to 4 different themes, reflecting New York. It’s an amazing steal; and there are many more free items hidden around.
Today I bring you a tutorial of how to create your own personal planters using items that I’ve gotten at the Apple Fall Sale. Below you’ll find my video tutorial/vlog on how to unlink items and relink with other items to create your own planter. The possibilities are endless of what you can create with items that are modifiable and can be unlinked.
I hope that you enjoyed the tutorial/vlog and that I helped to show what is possible once you know what to do.

With Game of Thrones 7’th season premiere fast approaching on July 16’th, 2017; I thought that it was time to embrace my ‘Inner Mad Queen’ a bit for a photo. Many people know that I am a dire hard Game of Thrones fan and have been waiting for the new season. I will hopefully be doing a Game of Thrones themed vlog within the next 3 -4 days; showing off all of the different Game of Thrones themed items that I own; one of which you see in this picture by Alchemy that they created for The Secret Affair‘s April round back in 2015 which was Thrones themed. It’s something that I that I love so I figured why not blog it.

A common question that has come up is how does one convert their old Phat Azz & Lola Appliers into New Omega ones. It’s quite simple and I’ll walk you right through it but first I need to make a note in regards to Lola’s Appliers. You do not need to convert your Lola appliers into an Omega one. It seems that the Lola’s and Omega notecards are read on the same channel, meaning that Lola appliers should work just fine unless they were not made with full upper textures as I detailed in my last post.
At the Omega store and on their marketplace page, there’s a kit for converting appliers to Omega. If you also have the Maitreya Mesh Body you need to grab their Omega Relay to apply the clothing to the mesh body
Converting Phat Azz or any other Azz Appliers to Omega:
In the picture below, I am showing what came with the Converter Bundle for Omega System. I will just be working with the Omega Classic – Convertsion Kit. -The Combo Bottom Applier
First you need to rezz out the applier you want to convert, try to do this on a building platform or outside of your home, you don’t want to accidentally delete something and create more work for yourself. Then rez out one of the combo bottom appliers from Omega. Next you need to right click and select edit on the applier you are converting from so that you can grab the notecard. I should note that most are linked objects so while in edit you need to click on edit linked parts then on the prim. For example, I am using a Reign applier, I click edit linked parts and then on ‘Pants’, next going to the Content folder which shows the notecard that I can drag out and drop into my inventory.
Next you will want to right click to enter edit mode on the Omega Applier, once there in the content folder of the object you will already find a ‘Config Pant’ Notecard there, you must right click and delete that notecard one before dropping in the new one!
Drag and drop in your new notecard into the object, it should have been no modify/no transfer when you took it from the original applier. Rename your Applier and take it into your inventory, making sure to place it in theory into the folder the outfit is as it will not do that automatically. Also either take or delete your other applier but make sure it was copyable, it wasn’t then you need to make sure to take it back into your inventory otherwise it will be deleted and then you will lose it!!
Now to test out and see if your applier was made correctly make sure you have it attached, along with your Maitreya Hud and Maitreya Omega Relay. Click Pants on your applier and it should apply, now I also have on my Reign applier as well to show that when the Maitreya Omega Relay is attached you can simply click on the Lola applier and it appears on your body also well, as long as the texture for the Lolas was made with a full upper texture as stated in my other blog.
I hope this has cleared up a few things and explained thing a bit better for those converting their appliers. If anyone else has any questions, please feel free to contact me on my Facebook. Flickr or Facebook Page For The Blog.
I know that I haven’t blogged in a longtime but I felt the urge too with all of the information that I have been finding out over the past few days in regards to the new Maitreya Mesh Body. So please bear with me through all of the pictures and the following information.
The Omega System that has been catching on since the summer of 2014 has been quite useful many designers now offer Omega Appliers along with many others with their newer clothing.
Even if a designer doesn’t offer Omega Appliers you can easily create your own using their Conversion Kits. So earlier today I began to test out if appliers could easily be made and I found out a few things.
In regards to creating appliers from the older Phat/Cute Azz notecards it’s quite a breeze, unless you are trying to convert for example a pair of high waist shorts from the summertime. You will find that it works but the top of the shorts which should be on your stomach will not be there, that is due to that layer having been created as a system layer. At this moment in time there is nothing which can be done other than to see if the product has been re-released with Omega Appliers or to contact the designer to see if they plan to update their older items at some point in the future.
As for Lola’s tops, Omega has said that there is no need to create new appliers as the old Lola’s tops since the notecards seem to be read on the same channel as Omega.
But there is a disclaimer on the Maitreya Kit from Omega; ‘Disclaimer: Not ALL Tango Appliers will work correctly! Appliers that do not use a full upper texture will not work.
Now there is the slight issue, some appliers work and others do not. The ones which did not use a full upper texture, the textures will appear on the arms and stomach. Once more the only thing that can be done is to see if the product has been re-released with Omega Appliers or to contact the designer to see if they plan to update their older items at some point in the future, hopefully using full upper textures.
Example of a Working Full Upper Texture: REIGN.- Bowtie Bodysuit- Bubblegum, popular during Summer of 2014
Example of a Non Full Upper Texture: 1 Hundred. Bareback Bodysuit. Charcoal
Now I went through quite a few things that I own and I am happy to say quite a few of the Lola’s appliers worked because they were made with a full upper texture.
Here is a list of the older items that I tried which show up perfectly on the Maitreya Mesh Body as a complete top.
So – Hai
Beauty Is Pain
Now I have sent a few notecards out to certain designers who’s clothing that I enjoy very much and am waiting for replies. So far I have heard back from only one (was a super quick reply only 10 minutes after I had sent the notecard); Skyler Lebed the owner of Dirty Princess. In her own words, regarding Omega Appliers for her clothing. ‘No, I do not have plans to update any older items, atm, if I do, do some omega’s for any older items I will release them as new items, and list them all again.’
Most of the items that are offered from Dirty Princess are 200L or lower so I look forward to see what items might be updated and re-listed in the future.
So for those of you who are wondering if you should delete your old Azzes and Lola’s; hang onto to them. They will come in handy for those items which were not made with full upper or lower textures.
I hope that this information helps quite a few people out. Happy New Year ♥
