Beachfront

… because I actually left my skybox!

Beachfront

These days I only blog if and when I feel like it. So I guess I felt like it :)

I haven’t spend that much time inworld. But when I am online, it’s usually spend on my little platform in the sky. Playing dress-up, rearranging pixel furniture… you get the idea. Considering how “beachy” I ended up looking after my latest round of dress-up though, I had to find a bit of coast as my backdrop.

Yes, I actually left my skybox. Shocking isn’t it?

Also, I’m still wearing my mesh head. I’m really starting to get used to it. I have discovered some drawbacks though. First one being the lack of facial expressions. It’s not like I used to use expressions all the time, but a bit of a smile would be nice to have.

The second one, I only discovered when I started writing my credits. Normally I just check my “current outfit” folder to find the necessary information. But of course the Lelutka head uses appliers, which don’t show up there.

So with that in mind, I’ll tell you I’m wearing some sort of lipstick. Because I can’t remember what applier I used. *facepalm*

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.

Dusting off my Digits

… for Strawberry Singh’s What’s your Digits? – Take 5: The Mesh Body Revolution.

Yes, I’m once again dusting off my blog. It might be for the last time too. I’m not spending a whole lot of time in SL any more. And when I am inworld, I just don’t feel like blogging about it. Maybe I’ll feel differently in a couple of months, but for now expect this blog to be veeery quiet.

Well, after I share my Digits that is! I did part 1, 2 and 3 of this challenge, but somehow missed part 4. I just couldn’t miss part 5 as well. So here it is:

Dusting off my Digits

Followed by some questions:

  1. Do you currently own a mesh body? If so, do you wear it all the time or just once in a while? If not, skip to the fourth question. – Yes, I own a mesh body and I wear it all the time.
  2. What is your preferred mesh body available on the market right now? – I tried demo’s by Slink, Maitreya and Belleza, but only bought Slink Physique in the end. I felt that one worked best with my regular shape.
  3. Have you changed your shape since you started wearing the body? – Well, I did change my shape since the last time I did this challenge. After Part 3 of the challenge I was on a mission to make my proportions more realistic. I used these shape tools and ended up cutting quite a bit of my legs off! But that was before the mesh body revolution. Because the Slink Physique sticks pretty close to the system shape, I didn’t change my sliders for it. I will sometimes tweak the sliders to fit in a particular garment though.
  4. How do you feel about mesh bodies in general? – I just love them. They also seem to have given designers a new burst of creativity, which is a lovely side-effect.
  5. What is one thing you would request from designers when it comes to mesh bodies? – The one thing I really dislike about mesh bodies, is how time consuming it has become to alpha, HUD, attach and applier yourself into an outfit. I’m not sure if it is actually technically possible to avoid this, but there it is. My one dislike.

I am Death

… come for thee.

I am Death

Well, actually I’m just an ordinary neko doing a Halloween blog-post. It’s that time of year again after all.

I spend a lot of time on this picture. Not so much on the outfit, because that came together pretty quickly. But I had a lot of fun playing with my windlight settings. I really should be using that SL sky more often.

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…

A bit morbid

… for Strawberry Singh’s Death Meme.

A bit morbid

Ms Singh recently had her birthday (belated happy birthday Berry!) And to celebrate this joyous event, she decided to ask us questions about death.

Yepp, you read that correctly: death.

Oh well, apart from taxes, it is the one thing you can be certain about. On to the questions:

  1. Do you ever think about dying? How do you expect you’ll die? – I don’t think about dying that often and that’s a concious choice. Why ponder about something you can’t control anyway? Just makes you unnecessarily depressed. As for how I expect to die? Hopefully something quick, so I’ll never know what hit me.
  2. Do you believe in an afterlife? If so, how do you visualize it? – No, I don’t believe in any kind of afterlife. I know some people might find it shocking, but after I die I simply expect to be food for the worms.
  3. What is your preferred form of apocalypse and why? – A friend of mine once had a dream about a meteor hitting the earth. In it she was happily telling people: “Don’t worry, it doesn’t hurt!” So I’ll go with a meteor apocalypse. And hoping my friend was right.
  4. How many times have you cheated death so far? – I cheated death twice so far. I’ve had a thrombosis and cancer. I’m still here and doing just fine. But 2003 was definitely not my favourite year…
  5. Which fictional villain would you be okay being killed by? – That was a difficult one, but I think I’ll go with Dracula. There is just something sexy about that neck-biting.
  6. If you’re murdered, do you stay and haunt the culprits forever or do you give up that opportunity to leave and go to heaven/hell/Cancun? – Hmm, I don’t think I would want to be a poltergeist for all eternity. But I would love to haunt the culprits for a couple of years at least.
  7. Will you have done everything you have wanted by the time you die? – Probably not. I’m sure I’ll have forgotten something… Did I leave the gas on?
