A bit of coldLogic

… because I received my first blogger preview pack ever! Excuse me while I do a very silly dance around my pc. *does happy dance*

coldLogic

Okay, I’m back. Sorry about that…

So what is coldLogic? Well, in case you haven’t heard, it’s a new store that will be opening it’s doors on February 1st. It’s a combined effort by Damien Fate, Janie Marlowe and Zyrra Falcone. And it will be bringing us mesh-based designs. All the clothes use the Standard Sizing and, while it of course depends on the shape you use, the items I got fitted me pretty well.

To avoid a really picture-heavy post, I’m just going to show you my personal favourite for now: the Cohen jumper in moss. The belt is part of the outfit and is also mesh. This outfit really made me long for a nice spring day.

So, in a couple of hours, tp over to coldLogic, and get your hands on some mesh-goodies!

  • Hair – Lamb (lamb.bellic)
  • Skin – Grixdale (tyr.rozenblum)

Patina

… week 5 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Patina

This week’s color is patina, which is apparently a word to describe a sheen on wooden furniture produced by age, wear, and polishing. Sounds to me like a fancy word for ancient dirt. But I’m of course no furniture expert. Patina can also describe a green/grey tarnish that forms on the surface of bronze and similar metals, produced by oxidation. Which obviously brings us to this week’s color.

I found this a difficult color to find, and I didn’t quite hit the mark with this dress, but it’s close enough. I combined it with a jewellery set by Sweet Leonard that I bought ages ago, but completely forgot about.

I also got myself a pair of G Field‘s new rigged-mesh boots. They are available in lots of colors, but my wallet made me buy only the black ones (for now). Luckily they come with a HUD to change the color of the laces and trim, so they are easy to match to different outfits. Even to a patina one.

  • Hair – Truth (truth.hawkes)
  • Skin – Tres Blah (julliette.westerburg)
  • Eyeliner – Pididdle (brutus.martinek)
  • Eyes – Poetic Colors (lano.ling)

  • Boots – G Field (cerberus.noel)
  • Jewellery – Sweet Leonard:Needful Things (lady.leonard)

I’m back

… my pc is up and running again.

Coldlogic

Well, at least I got  Second Life and the Gimp installed again, so I could make this picture.

The dress I’m wearing is by coldLogic. This store is not open yet, but will be soon. Until then you can get this dress, in three colors, for free in their Subscribo. And you can use it to enter their photocontest until January 30th. The dress is mesh though. So if you are not using a mesh-enabled viewer, you won’t be seeing much of it.

And with that said, I’m going to install some more stuff.

  • Hair – Vive9 (sanya.bilavio)
  • Skin – Tres Blah (julliette.westerburg)
  • Eyes – Poetic Colors (lano.ling)
  • Neko parts – OTCR (anisa.naumova)
  • Dress – coldLogic (coldlogic)
  • Tights – Ohmai (anya.ohmai)
  • Boots – Elikatira (elikapeka.tiramisu)
  • Necklace – bewildebeest (coyote.momiji) —>store closed
  • Pose – E.ink (empty.inkpen)

Iron

… week 4 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Iron

I couple of months ago I wrote about the pain of having to do a complete re-install of my computer. Well… I’m about to do it again. Not because I tripped over the electrical cord again. Even I am not that clumsy. But because for some reason my e-mail is completely messed up, and I have no idea why.

Everything worked mine last night. But when I tried to read my e-mail this morning… forget it. Every time I try, the program tries to start but then it just gets slower and slower… and slooower… until the whole thing gets stuck and I have to reboot. I tried to re-install the e-mail program. Tried to restore Windows to an earlier state (or something like that… I’m not exactly good at this stuff, but I stumbled across the feature and thought it might be a good thing to try). I even got my poor husband to try to fix it. (He is good at this stuff, but has very little patience).

So before the poor guy went completely insane and tried to eat the desk or something, I made a back-up of the most important stuff and will just re-install the whole thing. I hate doing that, especially because everything else is working fine. But jumping through hoops to get to my e-mail from now on, seems pretty stupid as well.

So basically, if this blog is quiet for a while, I will still be installing…

  • Hair – Elikatira (elikapeka.tiramisu)
  • Skin – Pink Fuel (mochi.milena)
  • Eyeliner – Kyoot (saeya.nyanda)

  • Boots – Elikatira (elikapeka.tiramisu)
  • Necklace – Miel (miel.nirvana) —> Group Gift

No further blogging today

… I’m joining the internet strike against SOPA and PIPA.

And no, PIPA and SOPA are not STDs.

Don’t know why, but their names really remind me of that…

Electric Indigo

… week 3 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II!

Electric Indigo

Usually whenever there is an “electric” color week, it’s time for me to panic. I’m just not a big fan of very bright colors. Electric Indigo however turned out not to be so bad. Not that I had a lot of items to choose from, but I’ve had this outfit ready to go, since part one of the challenge. And since the right kind of purple never came about, I had it easy this week.

Well… the choosing of the outfit was easy. Taking a picture however…

Second Life has been putting black lines on my snapshots for a while (which was already a pain to photoshop), but now it also randomly makes part of my shadows disappear. And that I really can’t convincingly edit. Toning down the resolution and fiddling with the shot helps a bit. But as a whole, taking pictures has become a rather frustrating exercise.

I’ve tried the Firestorm and Exodus viewers, but they give me the same problems. Does anyone have some idea of what I could try next? I’m open to suggestions.

  • Hair – Magika (sabina.gully)
  • Skin – Frick (fricka.morgath)
  • Eyes – Poetic Colors (lano.ling)
  • Neko Ears – OTCR (anisa.naumova)

  • Pants – Deviance (surreal.leshelle)
  • Boots – Shiny Things (fallingwater.cellardoor)
  • Collar – Panda express (kioko.kumaki)
