New Year Meme

… for Strawberry Singh’s Monday Meme.

New Year Meme

And my blog has finally made it into the new year as well. Happy (belated) 2014 everyone!

I made this particular look while cleaning out my inventory. It is a pigsty in there and probably does take up two servers…

  1. How did you spend New Year’s Eve? As always, we spend Christmas at my hubby’s parents and New Year’s Eve at my parents. Easiest way of seeing all the family and not having either side feel left-out. Both occasions usually contain a lot of food and drink!
  2. Did you keep any new years’ resolutions? In RL I never bother. As soon as make them I forget about them. In SL: finally cleaning that inventory!
  3. What was your biggest achievement(s) of the year? I know it’s more luck then achievement, but I’m happy that the people I care about were happy and healthy this year. Me included.
  4. What was the best thing you bought? We finally got a clothes-dryer in RL! I’m so happy to not have to drape the bedding over the living room furniture to dry anymore.
    And yes, I’m easily pleased…
  5. What do you wish you’d done more of? Just enjoying the small things in life I think. Between chores and other obligations, that’s an easy thing to forget to do sometimes.
  6. What do you wish you’d done less of? In short: procrastinating. Very bad habit of mine that I really really need to do less of.
  7. What was your favorite movie you watched this year? Uhm, I hardly ever watch movies. So if I did watch a good one this year, I probably forgot!
  8. What did you do on your birthday this year? Considering it was a week-day, not much. Hubby cooked for me though :)
  9. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned. Not to worry so much. Some of the things I worried about this year, really weren’t worth worrying about.
  10. What does 2014 hold for you? There are no big events planned, so as far as “happy and healthy” goes, I’m just hoping for more of the same.

It’s Digits Time Again

… Strawberry Singh’s What’s your Digits? – Take 3: Proportions Challenge

It's Digits Time Again

For this week’s Monday Meme, Berry is bringing back her “What’s you Digits” challenge. This is the third time I’m doing this challenge and I’ve realized something: Cats don’t like change… and apparently nekos don’t like it either! I changed only one slider compared to my previous entry, and only three since my first!

Anyway, Berry wanted us to answer some questions too, so here goes:

Proportions Challenge Questions:

  1. Do you try and keep your avatar’s body proportionate and similar to the “average” proportions pictured above? – Exactly that: I try to. It’s the reason I decided to make my own shape a couple of years back. I wanted to get as close to realistic proportions as I could get.
  2. What do you dislike the most about the SL avatar mesh? – Now that I have pretty mesh hands and feet, there is just one thing I’d like to change on the avatar mesh: ears. I have lovely fluffy neko ears, so I don’t need those fleshing things on the side of my head. I made them as small as I could, but I’d really like an option to get rid of them completely, without having to use an alpha-layer and two flesh colored prims.
  3. Does it bother you when you see other avatars that are not proportionate at all? – Sometimes. I don’t mind it if it was done to create a certain effect and the rest of the avatar reflects that. Basically, if an avatar is well put together I can appreciate that. Even when it’s a style I personally don’t care for.
  4. Even though this is a virtual world and people can be anything they want to be, do you feel when they are in human form, they should try to keep their proportions close to average? Yes and no. No, because who am I to tell someone what to do? But yes, because for some reason when proportions go to far away from what is naturally possible, I find it can become uncomfortable to look at. Maybe because our mind thinks it looks human, but it isn’t what it expects? Just guessing here…

I always thought (hoped) that my avatar was pretty realistic. But I decided to use the Model Shape Tool Berry mentioned in her post to test if it actually was.

And as it turned out… not quite. Legs too long, arms to short, head too small…ouch. So just to experiment, I made a copy of my shape and fiddled around a bit. I kept Sama’s overall height the same, but changed her height slider to 70, head size to 80, arm length to 90 and leg length to 30.

Shape test

I’m not sure if I like her better this way. The truth may be somewhere in the middle, I think. Maybe I’ll have made some actual changes by the time “What’s your Digits – Take 4″ comes about.

Peter Pan

… Week 1 of the SL DisneyBound Challenge.

Peter Pan

Since I started this blog, I’ve done quite a few blogger challenges. But after the Color Challenge came to an end, it took me a while to find a challenge that appealed to me. I was a bit iffy about the DisneyBound Challenge at first, because I’m not a big Disney fan. But then I remembered just how much fun I had had making my Disney princesses-gone-hipsters look. So I went with it anyway.

Well, I was planning to go with it, before I went on my forced SL-hiatus. At the moment I’m already 3 months behind, so I’m not even going to try and catch up. I’ll just be posting these if and when I feel like it.

  • Hair with hood – Magika (sabina.gully)
  • Skin – Pink Fuel (mochi.milena)
  • Eyeliner – Kyoot (saeya.nyanda)
  • Eyes – Poetic Colors (lano.ling)
  • Mesh hands – Slink (siddean.munro)
  • Neko tail – Lemon Tea (sei.minuet)
  • Dress – Somnia (sanura.snowpaw)
  • Belt – Fishy Strawberry (fae.eriksen)
  • Tights – G-Field (cerberus.noel)
  • Boots – Lassitude & Ennui (jackal.ennui)
  • Pose – Beetlebones (suetabulous.yootz)

Gold

… week 50 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Gold

And once again I’m late! Maybe I’ll finally manage to be on time at week 52…

Anyway, when I saw this week’s color swatch, I immediately had to think of this dress by Lemon Tea. At first I didn’t want to use it, because it’s not a new item AND I already blogged it last year. But it’s just to perfect not to use.

I didn’t just want to copy the entire look though, so I searched my inventory for some other items to accessorize with. And stumbled across this perfect golden-colored skin I picked up at Unhinged!

I hardly recognize myself :)

  • Hair – Wasabi Pills (missallsunday.lemon)
  • Skin – Skin Monster (nicole.twigvald)—>@Unhinged

Hunter Green and Amaranth

… week 39 and 40 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Hunter Green

After all my computer problems and frustrations (read the previous post/rant for the details), it is now time for a big catch up-post. First up is Hunter Green!

I really struggled with this color. Nothing I owned was quite the correct shade of green. In the end I settled for this kind of grey/greenish sweater. Actually, every time I look at it, it seems to turn more grey and less green.

Oh well, moving on to Amaranth.

Amaranth

Weird color actually. If I stared at the color swatch for too long, it just seemed to morph from pink to red and back again, right before my eyes. Reminded me a lot of Folly, too.Which is why I re-used the shoes I bought for that color. (I know, baaad color blogger!)

Anyway, hopefully my pc will continue to behave itself next week. And I’ll be back on schedule again from now on.

Persian Rose

And this week’s color is: … another shade of pink. When I bought this dress I was sure the right kind of pink was in there. But I’m not sure I can find it now…

In any case, I’ll be off on vacation tomorrow, so the blog will be quiet for a while. Yes, I’m going on holiday during Hair Fair… I’m silly, what can I say? :)

Unmellow Yellow

… week 25 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Unmellow Yellow

I did some serious inventory cleaning this week. I even sorted all my stuff on color. (without going insane!) But that still didn’t result in any unmellow yellow outfit options. Apparently I’m really not a fan of yellow.

So I did some “sorting” of my group notices and went with this dress by coldLogic. It also gave me an excuse to buy myself another set of jewellery by Maxi Gossamer. I’d seriously love to buy every piece of jewellery at her store. But because of limited funds, I’ll just have to collect them slowly. One set at a time.

    • Hair – Clawtooth (bubbles.clawtooth)
    • Skin – Pink Fuel (mochi.milena)
    • Eyelashes – Maxi Gossamer (maxi.gossamer)
    • Eyeliner – Kyoot (saeya.nyanda)
