Shades of Beige

… a Look of the Day.

Shades of Beige

Sometimes a look comes together without any problems at all. You basically just get your pixeldoll dressed and suddenly you look awesome. But sometimes…

This was one of those looks that just wouldn’t work. I’ve been wearing this outfit for a week now, in different variations. And basically, this is the best I could come up with. You can clearly see I was desperate, because it has a handbag in it. If I start digging in my bags folder, this are going badly, just saying.

I’m not dead

… I was just having some technical difficulties.

I'm not dead

Well okay, a LOT of difficulties. I’m not sure what happened, but my Second Life experience was so bad for a while, that I really thought I’d have to quit it altogether.

SL had already been a bit unstable before, but shortly after my last post in February, I really started having problems. First I couldn’t detach or attach anything. After that, suddenly all my alpha-layers refused to rezz. Followed by every other texture. Not to mention the lag…

But then the biggest problem started: constant crashing. I usually had time to rezz one bowl of food for my KittyCatS, read one notecard… and that was it. The one way to stay on longer was to walk around constantly. Though that didn’t solve anything. Because as soon as I stopped doing that, to open my inventory or an IM window, you’ve guessed it… I’d crash.

I was pretty much pulling my hair out in frustration at this point (if it would rezz that is). And for I while I gave up on SL completely. And on blogging as well. Afterall, how can you have a SL-blog, if you can’t even log on? I thought about officially closing the blog too, but I still liked playing with my pixel-dolly. So I continued to give SL a try every once in a while.

My latest attempt involved uninstalling all my viewers and trying one I had never heared of before: Catznip. With a name like that, how could this neko not give that viewer a go? And miraculously… it worked! I could stay online and even take pictures OMG!!!

Ahum… anyway, hopefully my luck continues, and I can start posting stuff again in some kind of regular fashion. I really hope so, because I’ve really missed it.

Tangelo

… week 48 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Tangelo

And this week’s color… is another orange. And no, I still do not like orange.

The first thing I found that was the right color were my shoes. They are available at the Unhinged event, which is still going. After that though, I struggled a bit. At first I wanted to pair the jacket with a black dress. But then I realized I have been wearing nothing but skirts and dresses lately. So I went with shorts this time.

I’ve survived yet another orange week!

Barley Corn

Barley Corn

And for a change, I’m on time with my post! … I’ll try to make it a habit… Anyway, most of my outfit consists of stuff from my inventory. But there are also two new things in this weeks outfit.

The first is my necklace, which is one of the gatcha-items available at Unhinged. The second is my skin by LAQ. I used to think I wasn’t a fan of their skins. But after trying a demo of the new Saga skin, I changed my mind rather quickly.

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.

Rapunzel, Rapunzel

… let down your hair.

Rapunzel

Actually, this new really long hair by Magika, is called “Draw”. But I think it could have easily been called Rapunzel as well. In any case, I think it’s awesome!

My shirt is part of a new release by fri.day. This cute ballet tee is “system clothing”. And it’s available in 10 solid colors and 8 striped versions. The little mesh bow is optional, but I definitely prefer the shirt with the bow. It’s just adorable!

One Voice

… stuff from the One Voice Fundraiser.

Onevoice

I finally managed to visit One Voice. This event was organised to raise funds for Gala Phoenix, creator of Curio skins. Because at the moment she is fighting a legal battle, to get her SL business returned to her. But the event also aims to raise awareness of intellectual property rights and how this situation should concern all content creators in SL.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, none of this is going to be news to you. But just in case it is, you can read about everything that happened, here on Curio’s blog.
