Magical Universe..

“When the reason for a thing’s being illuminated, it doesn’t hold the same mystery it does when it is unknown, which is both a wonderful and a horrible revelation. It’s wonderful because it’s like peeking into the universe and understanding a tiny bit of its complexity. It’s also horrible because a little bit of magic is removed from the world with each discovery.” ― Bradley Somer, Fishbowl

Inner ‘Mad’ Queen

“I have sinned and must atone, must parade my shame before the eyes of every beggar in the city. They think that this will break my pride, that it will make an end to me, but they are wrong.” – Cersei’s thoughts before her walk of atonement – A Dance with Dragons

“When you play the game of thrones you win or you die. There is no middle ground.” – Cersei Lannister

 

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.

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.

Reign
Izzie’s
Forever Young
[In]sight
American Beauty
IAF
Biddy
Renegade
So – Hai
{UR}
Beauty Is Pain
FLG

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 ♥

 

Practice Makes Perfect!

I know that I haven’t really been blogging as of late; lack of inspiration and the realization that it is now indeed summer; meaning my time is split in half between RL and SL. But I think that I might have finally gotten my groove back by playing around with pictures once again. I was finally able to do a few things that I had been wanting to do for a while now; Making water drops and figuring out skin and eyeshadow. To many it might not see like that big of a deal but to a beginner like me it means to the world to have finally figured these little things out.
