Color is Fluid

June 28, 2012

The 52 Weeks of Color Challenge fizzled faster than it did last year.  *sigh*  Well, I’m still trying to catch up (slowly) and this is my Pueblo.  Yes, there’s actually some pueblo in there!  It’s in the middle part of the ombre on my RezIpsa Loc tights.  Really!

A last minute reminder for those of you out there who haven’t made it yet:  The first round of Fluid is still going on!  You’ve only got two more days to get over there, though!  This pose is from Pekka’s sweet little Eva pack and I just love it.  It helps look Chloe look at least a little embarrassed about this color debacle.

Life is Fluid

June 15, 2012

It’s time!  Fluid is a few hours into its first rotation!  Visit the website, swing by the sim, do some shopping at the pose and prop – centric, two week event.  The summer themed items are SO cute.  The creators have really outdone themselves!

Chloe sneaked into the fortune teller’s chair from Cleo Designs to see if she could tell what’s to come in our lives.  I hope the cards had something good in store for her, ’cause my tea leaves weren’t all that promising!

There are dunk tanks, group poses, couples poses, sea creatures, carousels and more at Fluid for the next two weeks.  After that, the new rotation and new fun will begin.

The Sky is Falling!

June 14, 2012

Nah, I guess it’s not really falling, is it?  But it sure feels like it sometimes!  Things are crazy here- some good, some not so good.  What’s falling on me right now?  Prep work for my new teaching job!  So yay for that, but like all teaching gigs, the unpaid prep hours tend to get lengthy.  The result?  A sadface and much less time with my peeps on Plurk and inworld.

However, I still have my little feelers out there in SL-land, so I have a couple of things to tell you about.
The Mesh Around hunt is almost over!  You’ve got a couple more days to go and get all the meshy goodies.  (Oh!  And on the mesh note, I have made a couple of tweaks to my shape after reading some blog posts and tutorials and am much happier with how things are fitting.)
As Mesh Around wraps up, Fluid begins!  Fluid is a pose and prop centric, theme-based event that cycles on two-week rotations.  So, what that means is that we have 12 designers creating around a theme (this rotation is Summer Fun) and their items will be available at Fluid for their two week period.  So expect to find some great beach, amusement park and picnic poses, props, animations and furniture at this rotation, which begins June 15th and runs until June 30th.  I’m using one of the cute hula poses from Bent as part of my drama llama, Chicken Little pic.

Meshing Around in Pistachio

May 31, 2012

Mesh, mesh and more mesh!  This hunt is so great.  It’s a really perfect opportunity to try out mesh clothing and to bring attention to decorative mesh objects and structures.  I have a good number of mesh items in my inventory, but I’m still finding that I have some trouble fitting mesh clothing.  I’ve been procrastinating on really figuring out the fit and finish and have mostly been depending on alphas to make things work for me.  I’m going to take another look at the standard sizing and see if I can’t get some of my mesh glitches worked out.  I will report back about this little venture!  But, in the meantime, enjoy some Sakide and Trompe Loeil gifties from the Ego Co.’s Mesh Around hunt:

Oh!  And I’m totally cheating and skipping ahead on Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge, Part Deux.  This is serving as my pistachio.  With all the green in the background and the perfect dots on the furniture, you can hardly tell that the sweet little flower-patterned dress is the lightest shade of pistachio as well.  Anyhoo…  Meshy pistachio.  Close enough for government work.

May 29, 2012

The Mesh Around hunt starts in only two days!  The Ego Co. mesh-centric event will run from June 1st to June 15 and it will impress you with the long list of both old and new participating designers.  You’ll be looking for an item that looks like this:

This dress from the Happy Undead made me feel like I was channeling Torley!  What a great little watermelon dress!  Kudos and thank yous to Carra Fargis for including so many size options.

Blogger Bubble

May 27, 2012

Lookie here…  Two posts in as many days…  We’ll have to hope that this bubble doesn’t burst too soon!

ADORKable poses has an adorable pose and prop giftie out at her shop right now.  It’s a set of speech bubbles that reflect various aspects of SLife, and if they don’t give you a chuckle or two, you just haven’t been in SL long enough.

Here’s another little tease of a sweet design from Designer Prims that can be found at the Home and Garden Expo.

(Now, I’m going to do something I don’t normally do, but I don’t want any misconceptions either.  I did edit out some elements that I viewed as flaws in the cute little summer dress from BeReckless, including a large seam on one side and some gaps where the alpha layer extended beyond the mesh dress.  Obviously I didn’t find them to be offensive enough to keep me from wearing the dress.  I thought it was cute and summery and I knew I could fix it for the post.)

Back to Blogging

May 26, 2012

I missed this!  I missed you!  All of you!  I have (hopefully) ironed out all of my viewer and computer problems and should be back to regular SLife as I know it!  For the moment, I’m not quite back up to speed, after getting back from overseas, dealing with a nasty Swedish cold and now car troubles in a state I do not reside in, but…  I soon will be!  Right now, I have a quickie post for you.

Designer Prims has a few items out at the Home and Garden Expo that are really lovely.  This house, aptly named A Place Less Ordinary, is just great.  Modern, clean and well done.  Hopefully the tiny hint you can see in this pic will get you moving down to the expo to check out the whole thing.
I’m wearing a great mesh dress from MAAI, as well as a pair of their heels…  Wish I could pull off a dress that short in RL…
I have a mesh complaint.  Has nothing to do with MAAI, their designs and execution are wonderful.  But with mesh in general, and I guess standard sizing…  I want the busts to be smaller.  Is that weird?  An uncommon complaint?  Who wants smaller boobs??  This girl!  I feel like the breasts keep the same cup, regardless of what size mesh item you put on.  Anyway…  Random complaint.
And MORE meshy goodness, though you can hardly see them:  eyes from A:S:S!  I’ll get a closeup for you soon!

52 Weeks of Color, Part Deux – Seashell Peach

April 14, 2012

Well, I’m on time this week. Woohoo for me!  And because of that, I decided I could fudge on the color a little bit, lol.  I don’t see any peach in this color, I’m sorry.  I can picture it in my mind, like the inside of a conch shell, but the swatch just didn’t do it for me.  And I didn’t edit my hair.  I’m a bad, bad blogger.  *sigh*

Ah well, the good news is that it’s almost time for the Pose Fair!  The event will start at 12pm slt on April 15th and features over 100 posemakers from across the grid.  It’s such a big deal this year, they need two sims to contain all the goodies!  RubyStarlight Writer’s Exposeur is one of my favorite brands and she has some great new poses in store for the fair.  I’d have to blog a helluva lot more to feature all of her stuff, but today I’m using one of her sweeter poses that go right alongside the strong and sexy (and sometimes even skanky, but in a good way) collections she has available.
