Wales

… week 31 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Wales

This week’s color is called Wales. I thought that was a country, but then again , what do I know? In any case, it’s a nice and bright shade of green.

The dress I’m wearing was last Friday’s FLF offer by Miel. I actually forgot to buy it that day. But luckily for me, they were late with putting up the vendors, so they decided to leave them up the entire weekend. I was saved!

Aqua Island

… week 30 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Aqua Island

And I’m back from holiday.

Well, actually we’ve been home a couple for days already. But first my pc refused to cooperate and then this morning I got a call that my grandmother had passed away. So Second Life and blogging were not exactly my first priorities.

In any case, I got my color challenge catch-up post together. My outfit admittedly doesn’t match the week’s color very well. But putting it together was a nice distraction.

Digits Revisited

… for Strawberry Singh’s “What’s Your Digits – Take 2”

Digits Revisited

Last year, Strawberry Singh asked people to share their digits, to see how her shape compared to others. Now, with the introduction of mesh and the Standard Sizing system, she figured it was time for Take 2. Since I participated last year, I decided to do so again.

This time though, Berry prepared some questions for us to answer in our posts:

  • How has the introduction of mesh affected your SL, if at all? Are you open to wearing mesh often or do you still shy away from it?

I personally love mesh. And to be honest I haven’t bought a lot of system clothes since the first mesh garments appeared. Especially system clothes+sculpties are off the shopping list. The same for longer prim hairstyles.

  • Have you changed your shape to fit into mesh? If so, did you go bigger or smaller?

Yes, I added a little bit of fat to my shape. But otherwise I didn’t change much. I usually wear M size. But it isn’t a perfect fit, I do very much need the alpha layers.

  • Do you think the mesh deformer will resolve a lot of the issues people seem to have with mesh and will it encourage you to wear mesh more often, if you don’t already?

I haven’t looked very closely at the technical capabilities of the mesh deformer. I hope it will improve the way rigged mesh works. But if it’s going to be the answer to all our prayers remains to be seen. SL wouldn’t be SL if we didn’t have to work around it’s technical limitations.

So what changes did I make to my shape in the past year? Not much, as it turned out. Quite soon after posting my first set of digits, I felt that my torso was a bit too long. So I changed that number from 60 to 55. The only change I made as a direct response to mesh, was increase my Body fat slider from 0 to 8, to make Standard Size M fit a little bit better.

Apparently my digits were already more or less Standard Sized 🙂

Pistachio

… week 23 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Pistachio

Isn’t it ironic, that when you finally remember to start preparing your color challenge-look several days in advance (instead of Saturday evening…), it comes together without any trouble at all? I started with rediscovering the skirt and after adding some more stuff from my inventory, I was pretty much done.

The only new thing in this week’s look is my skin by Leafy, which I bought at the Skin Showcase. This was kind of a new-to-me store. I had already seen and liked skins of this brand on the blogs, but had somehow always forgotten to actually tp to the store and try a demo. Ooopsie 🙂

Pueblo

… week 19 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Pueblo

Wow, did I have a hard time finding this particular brown! And my search wasn’t helped by the fact I was hardly online this week. The reason for that was my husband, who began this week by smashing his foot into the corner of a loose ceramic tile. And then I had to run around all week to provide him with food, drinks, books etc. Okay, he had a nasty cut in his foot, but it wasn’t like his foot would fall off if he moved one muscle! Really, why do men behave like babies when they’re sick?!

But anyway, back to this week’s shade of brown… After searching a long while, I finally settled for this look. The only recent item in it is my skin. The rest has been living in my inventory for quite a while. So don’t be surprised if some of this stuff is no longer available.

  • Hair – Maitreya (onyx.leshelle)
  • Skin – Aura (tyr.rozenblum)
  • Eyelashes – Gossamer Jewellery (maxi.gossamer)

To Eat or Not to Eat

… that’s the question.

birdie1

I go myself a little caged bird at Pose Fair. I’m not really sure why I bought him, he just fascinated me. Now I just can’t stop staring at him.

birdie2

I listen to his singing all day long. And admire his juicy little legs… No, don’t worry, I was only kidding! I won’t eat him.

At least, not until I’m done “playing” with this bird I got for free…
