Catching Rays

Oh My Gacha is open and there are quite a few wonderful things waiting for those who go. I feel in love with my new poses from Nani; which isn’t too much of a surprise given that I am a self-proclaimed ‘Pose Whore’ You can find this pose set ‘Catching Waves’ and another called ‘Skater Days’ there from this maker.

 

Taking It In....

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.

World Cup Fever!

I have to admit that a big part of me not blogging as of late has to be because I am watching Soccer(Football) quite a bit. I have the fever, even more so now that the United States has advanced to top 16th and now in do or die mode. Our next game is against Belgium on July 1st at 3pm CST! I’m excited; Are you? I’ve even gotten my gear but don’t tell I am secretly pulling for Argentina as well which might cause issues of they both win their next matching for they would end up meeting..

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.

 

Meh...

A Moment Alone…

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”

― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

 

I’m a bit behind after vacation and I do apologize. I’ll be catching up on Monday Memes Tomorrow and posting weekly if not daily once more. ♥

Tuesday Thoughts…

Sometimes being a blogger is a pretty thankless job. I know that many people think that as a blogger you get everything for free. Let me clear that up right now, most bloggers do not get things for free. I, myself have not gotten a thing for free. I simply blog about things that I like or love which I was planning on blogging anyways. I felt the need to point this out after a few notecards, I have gotten over the past few days. Honestly it’s crushed me a bit that people can be so cruel and unkind, when a person is simply doing something that they enjoy. I will say that if such happens again, I am out and this blog will be update every once in a blue moon and not daily.

All bloggers should be treated with respect and kindness, we are sharing things that we like, tips, eve ideas of places you might not have known of to explore. We take the time for photographs& editing, write-up, making sure that all of our information is correct, for you the people. Some of us are quicker than others with getting it all done, I take about an hour or two from start to finish. Please remember that the next time you want to be cruel to a blogger for something as simple as forgetting a Landmark or giving an old one for a store that has moved.

If you have nothing nice to say then say nothing at all, our mothers told most of us that saying as children; it still applies here and now as adults.

Sorry no photos for you today, I’m simply burned out from the past few days and not feeling it. Hopefully I’ll have something nice for you all tomorrow. Take Care ♥

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....

Falling Apart

“I knew that somewhere God was laughing. He had taken the other half of my heart, the one person who knew me better than I knew myself, and He had done what nothing else could do. By bringing us together, He had set into motion the one thing that could tear us apart.” – Jodi Picoult, Harvesting the Heart
