I Got a Head

… a mesh head, that is. Something I thought I’d never do!

I Got a Head

Yes, I got on the bandwagon and got myself one of the mesh heads by Lelutka. Karin to be precise.

Why, you ask?

First of all, I’d never tried a mesh head before. So there was certainly a bit of “Ooooh, new and shiny!!!” going on. Also, this head was simply the first one I liked the look of. Some others just weren’t my taste or they looked way too grumpy. (Being a mesh head is apparently annoying business.)

Second, I’d been kind of unhappy with my face lately (boy, does that sound shallow!) and I was looking for a change. I always felt my face looked fine from the front, but a bit scrunched up when view from the side. And my nose looked like one you can only have in RL if your last name is Jackson. Unfortunately I quickly discovered that I’m no good at making face shapes. So I tried mesh.

I have to admit, that getting a new face takes a bit of getting used to. And even though there are only 2 sliders for changing the shape of the head, I still fiddled around with them for days. But I like the end result. The only thing I didn’t like were the eyelashes that came with the head. I felt they looked like black toothpicks sticking out of my face. So I turned those off and used my own.

I think this new head might just be a keeper.

Marie

… Week 9 of the SL DisneyBound Challenge.

Marie

Once upon a time, there was a neko doing a Disney blogger challenge.

That was me, remember? A long, long, looong time ago? I was actually debating if I would continue that challenge or not. Because not only did it start ages ago, it also ended ages ago.

However, I still remembered that the next character in line was Marie. And when I looked at the outfit I had put together with the items I got at Uber, I figured I might as well just run with it.

So I used items from an event themed “50 shades” to make an outfit inspired by a white kitten with a pink bow. I’m sure stranger things have happened…

Aladdin and Jasmine

… Week 8 of the SL DisneyBound Challenge.

Aladdin and Jasmine

The December holidays are always a bad blogging period for me. I’m either not at home, or I’m too stuffed with food to move. This year was no exception.

I did get a few things done in Second Life though. I sorted my inventory a bit, reworked me shape (if only it was so easy in RL) and did my DisneyBounding looks. This week it’s 2 for the price of 1: Jasmine and Aladdin.

Jasmine was easy to do, but I still don’t like my Aladdin-look. Which artist at the Disney studios decided to put both red and purple in his outfit? It still makes my eyes hurt…

Dust and Memes

… *runs a finger throught the layer of dust covering the blog*

O dear, this rather embarrassing…

Dust and Memes

So yes, I’ve been away from Second Life for while. No big dramatic reasons, just needed a bit of a break.

Only after reading Strawberry Singh’s Monday Meme post, did I realise that I had apparently missed the latest Linden Lab disaster. Is it a bad sign that I’m not really surprised?

Anyway, time to answer Berry’s questions about the new TOS:

  1. Do you usually read the TOS thoroughly before you hit accept? I know that I should, but no. I never read it. I always want to get on with it and just click accept.
  2. How do you feel about the new LL TOS changes, specially from August 15th and section 2.3. I’m amazed at how, well… stupid LL can be a times. No matter how these changes were meant, could they really not see this would anger a lot of their customers? And that that is a very bad thing? They should try to keep residents happy, not give them more reasons to leave.
  3. Do the changes affect you directly? I haven’t been a content-creator in very long time and I never made an income of SL anyway. So I don’t think it affects me directly. However, if creators decide to leave because of this, it will affect me. Because, without new content to play with, people will become bored and leave. Me included.
  4. What do you think people should do about this new change? I guess what people should do is all leave SL in protest. But realistically, I know that isn’t going happen. I think it will be a good idea to keep an eye on what LL does next. And explore some of the other virtual-world-options out there, just in case.
  5. Are you or have you ever thought about leaving Second Life? What would you do with your time/blogs/career if you ever did? Heh, just coming back from a SL hiatus, that’s a funny question. I regularly step away from Second Life for a while, but I don’t think I will ever completely leave. And what I would do with my time if I ever did? No idea… bake a cake?

Snow White

… Week 4 of the SL DisneyBound Challenge.

Snow White

And I’m back from holiday! Time to get back to some SL DisneyBounding. Actually, it’s too hot to do anything else, but sit in front of my computer screen and melt.

Pom Pom

… a Look of the day.

Pom Pom

I’ve switched to using the Firestorm viewer and I seem to have stopped crashing *knocks on wood*. Still wondering what I did to anger the Second Life gods, but wow I must have really pissed them off!

Anyway, with my case of crashitus cured, for now, I finally had the time to play around a bit. So I made a Look of the Day, with some of the things I bought at Fifty Linden Fridays.

Pom Pom Detail

A word of warning about the vest though: it is NOT a rigged-mesh item (as I wrongly presumed). It’s actually as stiff as a plank, just so you know.

Charcoal

… week 44 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Charcoal

Has this ever happened to you: you are late with doing your color challenge picture, but you don’t feel like doing it. So you think “I’ll do it tomorrow” and then half a week later you realize you’ve forgotten all about it?

…No, you say? In that case I won’t be giving any prizes for guessing why I’m late this week *facepalm*

Anyway, I thought Charcoal would be pretty much, well… black. Instead the swatch looked more like grey, with quite a bit of blue in it as well. Exactly the color of this skirt by Ingenue, which I love. It uses Standard Sizing, but also has an extra M+ size, which happens to fit me perfectly! Don’t even need to use the alpha layer and that happens absolutely never.
