Exploring

..Peaceful Summer..

 

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time. – John Lubbock

Today I am showing off a few items that I got from Fifty Linden Fridays. I also did a ‘Get Ready With Me’ Vlog; which is embedded below for you to watch. Sadly the beginning and the part when I am editing the picture both became corrupted. (Technology hated me today!) I promise to try another ‘Get Ready With Me’, that includes the editing of the picture.

The Maitreya Mesh Body & Omega Appliers

Maitreya Mesh Body

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

Reign Example of Full Upper Texture For Lola's

Example of a Non Full Upper Texture: 1 Hundred. Bareback Bodysuit. Charcoal

1Hundred Example of Non Full Upper Texture

 

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.

Izzie’s
Forever Young

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 ♥

 

Foreign Queen

“When we get out of the glass bottle of our ego and when we escape like the squirrels in the cage of our personality and get into the forest again, we shall shiver with cold and fright. But things will happen to us so that we don’t know ourselves. Cool, unlying life will rush in.” – D. H. Lawrence
“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” – Jawaharial Nehru

I wanted another chance to show off the some of the lovely pieces being offered by Mandala during this round of Collabor88.

Happy Fourth of July!!!!

Happy Fourth of July to Everyone! I hope that you are all enjoying the holiday; I know that I am so far.

I started to think about how old our country is and I wondered if there was a way to mix in the old with the new within SL. So I put together an outfit with something from last year and something just released not too long ago as well.

Also The Dressing Room Fusion opened once again today! I found a really nice product from Izzies; Water Drops that you can add on as a tattoo and/or prim attachment. It’ll make a few photos a bit nicer without having to work so hard for a nice water effect on the body.

Broken Record….

Rhapsody by The Hottie Cooterati Experience is in full swing. This event is all about music from poses to clothing and everything in between! There are eight different musical genres represented; Electronic, Disco, Punk, Pop, Country, Classic Rock, Metal and Jazz. The event is open from now until July 12’th so don’t miss out.There are  I’ve had the chance to drop in a few times and will be going back a few more times before it’s over I do believe.

I am so in love with the poses from .Infiniti. made by Brandi Monroe. I was really drawn to the ‘Put Your Records On’ set. As soon as I saw this pose in the set I knew that I wanted to try and create something a bit different with it pushing my limits a little bit by add shattered record pieces with Photoshop. You see the result below but I’m going to try again soon for a cleaner effect.

Another reason to stop by is the live music that is going on at times by different DJ’s within SL. In particular you should try to stop by and catch my friend Crem Brule who will be playing again on the following dates. July 5th at 4pm SLT and July 12 at 4pm SLT. She also play for the opening day of the event and it was amazing, I’ve listened to her many times, as I am a Director at one of the clubs where she works but don’t take my word for it; head on out and listen for yourselves.

Wednesday Find: Heart Song

While reading through the different blogs that I follow regularly, I came across something early Monday morning that caught my attention. Harlow Heslop, had been working on her personal homestead sim: Heart Song. For the time being she has left it open to the public so that people may take pictures and explore the land. I knew that a chance such as this doesn’t come around everyday, so I placed it on my to-do list for the week and finally went! (Dragging the husband along as well) Harlow Heslop is one of the top five photographers in SL that I look up too and follow, it was an honor to go and see what her mind created for the sim. If you haven’t please check out her Blog and Flickr; I promise you that you will not be disappointed.

What she has created is simply breath-taking. I had to take a couple of pictures on different windlight setting, that I did nothing too, save for cropping. I hope that you all enjoy and hope that you go take a look at Heart Song while it’s still open to the public.

 

Peace
