Monday Meme

Monday Meme: Second Life Yearbook Smile Challenge!

I’ve mostly been out of the blogging loop and have decided to stay that way for the most part. But as always I am slightly pulled back in by; The Mother of Bloggers, Queen of Photography! Yes this is my personal name for her and I will continue to use it but who else could I be speaking about other than Strawberry Singh!

So she has decided to being Monday Meme’s once again and I couldn’t be happier, as it’s something that I have always enjoyed doing. Also I must note it’s something that can make me blog at least once a week again which isn’t too much for me. Anyways onto this week’s Meme!

Meme instructions: Share an image of your Second Life avatar smiling for a yearbook photo. Don’t forget to share the link to your post in the comments and add your pictures to the new Second Life Yearbook flickr group, you can also share them in the Blog Memes flickr group if you like.

 

Second Life Yearbook Challenge 2015!

I know, I am not smiling but there is a reason for that. I have the AnyPose Expression Hud, which I find quite useful for pictures. There is one thing, I HATE the smiles.. looks like I am going to break into someone’s home and murder them as they sleep…or as if I was giving too many ‘happy’ pills to try to stabilize my mood. So then I went looking at the Loud Mouth which also had me left more than a bit disappointed. So my theme slowly began to take form, I’m angry; this should be so fucking simple! And there I got it, channel my anger into this and make a future mug shot picture because truth be told, I hated smiling for school pictures and was made not once but twice to retake pictures by my mother! So I just used my [Whatever] Teeth 2.0 Pierced that I always wear but with the ‘Hooked’ Mesh Alpha Included! So there you have it, perhaps a bit outside of the box but this is me that we are talking about after all.

 

 

Monday Meme: What’s your Digits? – The Fitted Mesh Revolution

Once again it’s Monday and that means it’s time for a Meme from Strawberry Singh! I was pretty happy to have something to do today other than trying to sort through and figure out how to set up pictures with all of the stuff I have from The Arcade Gacha Events. That’s still a work in progress but I digress…..

 

Meme Instructions: Share your avatar’s digits and/or answer the following questions about Fitted Mesh and what you think the future holds for our Second Life avatars.

 

Now this is a bit tricky for me, given I have three shapes and of that I use two of them almost every single day. I have a normal shape, then one tweaked for use with the Cute Azz and finally one tweaked for use with the Cute Azz and Lolas worn together. I’m going to share the digits of my Cute Azz Shape as it’s the same as the Cute Azz and Lolas save for the breasts. That and I seem to always be wearing my Cute Azz when I can get away with it for mesh as well. Also I wear Slink Hands and Feet always so, I’ll give you the numbers it has not that it matters since they are always hidden by the Slink.

 Arm Length – 55
Belly Size – 0
Body Fat – 0
Breasts – 48
Butt Size – 48
Hand Size – 20
Head Size – 45
Height –  60
Hip Width – 70
Leg Muscle – 43
Leg Length – 60
Love Handles – 20
Saddles Bags – 37
Torso Muscle – 35
Torso Length – 50

According to the Avatar Ruler, I am 6′ 8″ counting my shoes for the day.

Questions about Fitted Mesh:

What are your thoughts about Fitted mesh? – When I finally heard about it I thought it was a pretty good idea. Yet by that time I had gotten caught up with Lolas and Cute Azz. But I have a few things here and there that are fitted mesh which I like a lot.
Have you tried any of the new fitted mesh avatars released by Linden Lab? What do you think of them? – No I haven’t and I really don’t see myself trying one unless I am very bored one of these days.
Have you tried any fitted mesh avatars/bodies created by residents? – I have the Wowmeh Demo that I have been playing around with a bit. I honestly wondered f such a thing was going to be created for it already had been for the Child Avi – ToddleeDoo. The system is the same with creating your own alphas which I do like. I might finally break down and get the full version in a bit of time.
Have you tried a mesh head? What are your thoughts about mesh heads? – No! I have seen them around and I have to say it makes it as if everyone looks the same. Also I do not like how they appear to be floating away from a person’s body when you first TP in to a place and if SL is messing up it remains there and looks very creepy to me. I have stayed away and will be for the future, I like my face just the way it is.

Do you foresee a lot of changes to our current Second Life avatars because of fitted mesh? – There are quite a few changes happening as we speak. Some designers are not happy about the fact all these different bodies are being released; why you might ask the answer is simple: Appliers. Having to create all new appliers for clothes already released can be time consuming to say the very least. I feel for the Designers quite a bit due to that fact, they have already done this all before when the ‘War of the Butts’ began last fall. Soon enough there will be one body the public likes more than the others which appliers can be found easily. I suppose I am trying to wait until then before committing just like I did with my butt.

I swear I could touch the sky....

Monday Meme: Photobomb!

I am a bit late with the Monday Meme for this week. In all honesty I’m a bit behind in blogging period, such happens when your child comes down with a stomach flu for close to a week and then goes back to school on a Tuesday.. all you want to do is catch up with people and sleep….. but I digress… She is better now and I’m not getting sick (yet!)

The always wonderful Strawberry Singh had another topic ready for us this week, one that I was actually looking forward too quite a bit; Photobomb!

Definition of photobomb: To hop into a photo being taken at the last moment or anytime the people/things in the background of the image hijack the original focus.

Meme Instructions: Go out exploring the grid and find someone to photobomb, or share a picture or anecdote of a time that you were photobombed in Second Life.

Let’s me explain why I was so excited; my SL husband/RL best friend is often time ending up n my pictures, to the point that I tell him to go somewhere and shop for a bit so that I can grab the shot without him walking in or suddenly being in the picture thanks to a new angle I am trying.

Yet as of late he;s been a lot better when he assumes I am taking a picture, so this made a bit of a challenge! I finally got him when I TPed home really quick and sat down on our dock; there he came a minute later and I began snapping away. Perhaps it’s not truly a photobomb but it’s the best I can do at the time, that and I have over 3000 photos now apparently… I wasn’t in the mindset to go through all of them to find the best photobomb on record so far.

 

Hope that you all enjoy, will try to catch up in the next few days with making some pictures and getting ready for the weekend ♥

Monday Meme: Second Life Friends List Meme

Well it’s the dreaded Monday once again but it’s almost over for myself at least. There is one great thing about Monday’s and that’s Strawberry Singh’s Monday Memes, which bring far too much joy as of late. I believe this is my third week doing one in a row so I am feeling all kinda of special about myself.

 

For this week’s Monday meme I thought it may be fun to grab a friend from your inworld friends list and then both of you can answer the following series of questions about your lists. It’s optional though, you can just answer the questions on your own if that’s easier.

Meme instructions: Grab a friend from your second life friends list (optional) pose with them and/or answer the following questions. Don’t forget to leave a link to your post in the comments and share your picture in the Blog Memes Flickr Group.

 

When I read the above, I got really excited and then nervous…Who could I ask to help me out other than the SL Husband/RL Best Friend….I’m going to have to grow some balls and ask someone…who do I love to be around, who makes me laugh so hard I want to cry at times. The answer to those questions was a few but one stood out; My Bass Sissy, Topaz. Why do I call her Bass Sissy you might be wondering; well we have a connection through music that can’t be broken.. well that and ball gags (don’t ask…)

[14:00]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): ooooo have a favor to ask you ^^
[14:01] ᴍᴇʀᴇ ᴛᴏᴘᴀz (TS Topaz): yes?
[14:01]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): be my partner for Monday Meme
[14:01] ᴍᴇʀᴇ ᴛᴏᴘᴀz (TS Topaz): for what?
[14:01]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): Monday Meme!
[14:01]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): oy
[14:01]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): *passes link*
[14:01] ᴍᴇʀᴇ ᴛᴏᴘᴀz (TS Topaz): whats that?

So to my delight she said yes but she began asking more and more questions and ended up choosing the theme for our pictures. ^^

[14:22] ᴍᴇʀᴇ ᴛᴏᴘᴀz (TS Topaz): need to be dressed in a specific way?
[14:22]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): nope
[14:22]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): wear what you want
[14:22] ᴍᴇʀᴇ ᴛᴏᴘᴀz (TS Topaz): you want a themed pic for ya blog?
[14:22]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): just suppose to be pic of friends
[14:22]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): wear what ya want.
[14:25] ᴍᴇʀᴇ ᴛᴏᴘᴀz (TS Topaz): pin up?
[14:25]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): ooo we could if you like
[14:25] ᴍᴇʀᴇ ᴛᴏᴘᴀz (TS Topaz): yaaaaay

But then I also wanted to ask my SL Brother, who I had been listening to spin while trying to get everything together finally. So I chose the approach below… Couldn’t deny his littler sister today!!!

[16:06]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): you love me so much you wanna do something for me?
[16:06]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): 😀
[16:08] Uncle Ruiz (RuizDelAguila Vaniva): hahahahahahaah yes sis tell me

The above lead to him agreeing to take part in this as well. I had a great time and took photographs which I believe are amazing having come from someone such as myself. I hope that you ll enjoy them as well as the answers to the questions.

Monday Meme: Color

Well Monday has rolled around once more and it’s time for another one of Strawberry Singh’s Monday Memes; This week it’s all about color! You are suppose to blog a picture of your favorite color or colors that you like. It shouldn’t be a huge shock that my favorite color is Silver of course but trying to get the right picture was quite a pain for me this morning but I finally got one while listening to a friend play music so I ended up with a bit of an action shot from my sister Topaz’s dance hud that I was on.

But Also there was an outfit that I had gotten not to long ago which is really reminds me of spring which I am in love with. So I decided to take a picture in that which was going to be the only thing in this post. The colors are just so crisp and rich, once you see it you’ll understand why I feel in love with it!
