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.

Mesh Around starts tomorrow!  Well…  later today, I guess.  For the sake of clarity:

Mesh Around starts at noon (SLT) on June 1st!
That’s soon!  Are you excited?  You should be!  But you’ve got 15 days to get all of your gifts, so don’t worry about lag or crowds or anything like that.  Now, the hunt starts at .evolve., but there is a list of participants (hints too!) on the Ego Co. website, so you can bounce around as you like.  The amazing BellaStarr Fhang has been working so hard to organize all of this for us, so make sure you send her some love when you get a chance.

Nope, this isn’t a Color Week post, it’s a title based on my disposition.  I swear, I’ll write a post when I’m happy one of these days.  Really.  But until then…

Ever have those moments?  Grey, dull, lifeless, uninteresting?  With occasional shots of color?  Vibrancy?  Yeah, that.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge, Part Deux – Patina

February 2, 2012

A patina is the accumulated changes in surface texture that occur over time.  This process is easily seen in cases like the Statue of Liberty, which display the characteristic green color that inspired this week’s challenge color.  Less obvious than the shiny copper to dull green-blue transition, anything can acquire a patina as it ages – your favorite antique rocking chair, the stone steps leading up to your house of worship, the heirloom lucky coin that you carry in your pocket and rub between your fingers.  I’ve been feeling more than a little worn around the edges and used up for the past couple of months and, though you can’t see it, my patina is changing.  Time alone takes its toll, add a little academic stress, career anxiety, emotional turmoil and all the other daily environmental factors that rub and grind and scrape at the surface (and deeper) and it’s clear to me that my shiny exterior has been dulled and colored.  But I keep reminding myself of the grandeur that our lady liberty now possesses because of her patina and it keeps me moving forward, looking ahead to the day I find myself swathed in a new shade of me.

Wow.  Got a little more than you planned on there, huh??  On to the good stuff:

RezIpsa Loc has, once again, created a handful of perfect items with the 52WOC challengers in mind, the amazing cracked tattoo layer that inspired this post is from the delightfully dark Nomine and the talented Photos Nikolaidis made the startling and gorgeous eyes I’m wearing.

Friends Don’t Let Friends Take Bad Snapshots

August 31, 2011

Hey there, friends and neighbors!  I’m back yet again with yet another post that is not related to the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge.  (doh)

I highly doubt I have readers that she doesn’t but, just in case…  I was inspired by some posts from Cajsa Lilliehook of It’s Only Fashion and put together a little LOTD plus a PSA.  lol  Sorta.  There are sooo many SL fashion blogs these days and while some of them are fabulous (StrawberrySingh.com), others are a little lacking.  Now, we all started somewhere (go check out the beginning of my Flickr- scary)and there are a lot of folks out there taking snaps just for fun, so this isn’t a criticism.  It’s a shared moment of learning between all of us.  We can all benefit from listening to other folks.  So I listened.  And since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, here I am doing a snapshot post.  And since laziness is the most prevalent of all my flaws, why should I ramble on and on about something that Cajsa has done so perfectly?!

I picked and chose some of the tips she mentions in her triptych of posts: The All-In-One Set Up Tip Sheet (I didn’t know about checking the SSAO and Shadow Smoothing setting), Lighting, Shadows and Projectors, Oh My! (I’ve never tried using a projector before) and Where Did They Hide My Windlight? (I’ve always been too lazy to fiddle with the sliders, maybe I’ll try it now) and put together a kind of before and after or what-not-to-do type thingum for you.

For my ‘before’ snapshot, I’ve lowered a couple of important hardware settings (anistropic filtering and anti-aliasing) and set my WL settings on something horrible and hope that it conveys the sense of unfinishedness(?? wtf, lol) due to the lighting and the jagged edges that I was going for.  Oh!  And crazyeye!  Take Cajsa’s advice and get a focuser thingy or read up on how to focus on a prim.  And then in the ‘after’ pic, I hope you’re all overwhelmed by the beauty and skill involved in taking such a fantabulous snapshot (you have to picture me saying all of that with ridiculous, wide, sweeping dance-like gestures).  Okay, so maybe that’s a stretch, but I do hope you can see how fiddling with some settings can really improve your inworld snapshots.

OH!  TODAY IS THE LAST DAY OF THE GRIXDALE SALE!  Make sure you get over there and tell Tyr how much she’ll be missed!

I’ve Lost My Way

July 4, 2011

A fitting title for this lovely necklace from Dark Mouse as well as for the last month or so of my SL/RL/whateverL.  I mentioned in my last post (I know!  Two in 24 hours!) that I’ve been MIA for a while.  I apologize to those designers/creators that sent me anything lately, I haven’t been able to get your items blogged.  Fifty lashes with a wet noodle for me.  Anyway, life has been piling it on.  Both good and not so good, but busy any way you look at it.  So I’ve been feeling a little lost and displaced and frazzled lately and I couldn’t resist this necklace that Mouse put out for Moody Mondays.  With a name like I’ve Lost My Way, it almost seems to be calling out with a promise to lend me a little direction.  And even if it doesn’t, its lovely style with perfect details (the cord for the pendant actually goes through the chain on one side and not on the other – cute!) will make me feel a little more put together.
