It’s strange what desire makes foolish people do

Hey peeps!

We ROUND 2 is starting soon! :-D Stay tuned for the awesome stuff to be had there. I am in LOVE with one item already:

Innocuous will be presenting this awesome, freaking nice armor at the event. Finally some decent armor for girls that doesn’t look bulky like hell and makes you look like a sad version of Conan. :D I am in love with it. It comes with shoulders, too, which I will show in a different post. The texture is really nicely done and it is MESH! But only the shoulders come in a rigged and a non-rigged version. The whole armor is modifyable, which is awesome for fitting. Imho, rigged armor always looks a little odd. Why would gauntlets move and bend with your arm? O.o

There will also be a dirty, rugged version of this armor available as well as a dark red and a black texture. :) I very much like this and will kiss Circuitous’ feet for a while now I think. :P Honestly I even believe it fits a guy as well, since among our penis-type people there are a few rogue-ish, leather-wearing characters as well. :P And..it’ll come in a separate version for the guys! :D

You are not as brave as you were at the start

Heya peeps!

So, today a guy’s post. May I introduce Vanquish to you? He’s a friend of mine (this is one of his 1 Million of alts) and has the ability to create really cool avatars. Imho, he is the living proof that there is in fact enough cool stuff out there for guys to come up with awesome outfits pretty regularly. He’s damned good at mixing and matching and has a great eye for details. However, he sucks at finding poses, vain man that he is it took him ages! :D

Run girl run! This world is not made for you!

Heya!

Time for more elfy stuff, wearable by humans and other kinds, too! Soedara released an awesome meshoutfit called Clan Maiden. It comes in a bunch of colours and you can wear it in many, many variations, so it is pretty damned perfect for mixing and matching. In my outfit, I feature the mainpart, which basically works like a small leatherdress of sorts.

LeLutka released new hair, a cute bob-style among them, but the other two did disappoint me a little. Imho they cannot keep up with the usually impeccable creativity Thora offers us: The updo has two strands hanging on the side of the face which looks good from the front, but looks utterly disconnected from the rest of the hair from the side. I am not sure why she did not add a couple of more strands there to cover up that odd gap, but oh well, maybe just not my taste.  The other hair is kinda okay, I got it even, until I figured it looks rather bland to be very honest.

However, complaining about LeLutka is complaining on a  VERY high level, so I am relatively sure not everybody will agree and the majority will storm there and buy everything anyways. I mean, I have pretty much her store in my inventory by now. ;D

In unknown lands the elf met a stranger…

Heya peeps,

so, after a bit of a blow up because a friend of mine didn’t want to tell some random impolite chick what her skin was, I will state this:

NO, it is NOT mean, bitchy, princessy and arrogant not to state where your skin and layers are from. Secondlife only offers a few things to truly customize your avatar. Creating a UNIQUE looking character for role-play that doesn’t run around with your generic XY skin requires quite a bit of Lindens and time and matching ‘skills’. So, if someone doesn’t want to tell every layer, how about you just accept it and move on to start to create your own ideas?

It has NOTHING to do with being a princess or wanting to be special, but it has everything to do with wanting to maintain unique features that fit the character you picture in your mind. It is another reason why most people who value a bit of a unique look do not go for mesh-heads…an army of clones really is a bit boring.

Going so far to spend your online time on finding out what skin person XY is wearing and how she combines her layers, to then spill it to the public in your profile, alongside with some incredibly idiotic rant only paints you as an uncreative mean chick who cannot for the sake of her own reputation accept a ‘no’ and create an avi herself. :D

/rant off. It’s so fun to rant at times. :P

Oh and by the way…mysterious woman, you got it wrong. It isn’t Pussy by The Bodyshop, as you have certainly realized by now. Since you apparently told her you are a blogger, from what I have been told, shouldn’t you have recognized it? ;D

Here is my current outfit! :) I got wrapped up in some funky rp while shooting this by a guy with a funny hat!

Queen of the High Forest

Hellos!

So, I have been repeatedly asked why I do not dish out a post every day currently. Two reasons:

1. I passed my final, final, final exam on monday. 11 hours of exams, essays, showlessons and oral exams after 1,5 years of traineeship. I was really damned busy.

2. I do not post every random stuff some store happens to release, especially not if it is the usual template stuff. I do use template stuff at times, but only if it is really well done. I rather go for quality than quantity. I wait until I really love an outfit and then blog it.

I got a few outfits up my sleeve, so whenever I find the time the next days, I’ll blog.  Oh and if you want to listen to true greatness, listen to this:

Woodkid – I love you

Here another proof that you can mix and match mesh-outfits. :P

Ecstasy of Gold

Hey peeps,

I know, I know. I have been slow lately. Several reasons there, and those aren’t excuses: I haven’t felt terribly inspired lately, since a few of my favourite designers have been very inactive the past month. Also, I am currently studying a lot since on march 4th I’ll have the second part of my master’s degree and hopefully become a full teacher finally, after 1,5 years of an extremely stressfull internship. So bear with me please, I really do feel stupid that I feel so lazy lately.

SO, I am glad Curio is finally back, even if I daresay that the compromise they amde stinks. Pity, but at least they are back. So right now I am waiting for new skins from Curio and The Body Co.

Talk about the Body Co: I abandoned my Orchid skin. Why? For several reasons:

1. For once, Body Co stated they will not create Tango appliers for their skins. Their decision, but a big let down for me.
2. I got tired of their prices. I am sorry, but 500 Lindens for a watermarked (!) Make UP, that you can only use with that ONE specific skin and not even any of their other skins, is just ridiculous. Doesn’t matter how many layers it comes with, since I don’t want a make up in a billion of skintones but rather one I can use for mixing and matching.
3. During their Sale, the Orchid skin was 750L while all others were 500L, due to the package being slightly different (three types of brows). The other skins come with one type of brow, which imho, isn’t exactly a nice deal for a single skin. Time moves on, skins nowadays come with several brow layers, hairbaes, freckles, sometimes different make up layers or even nose-addons and so many other things. I think they do not offer a whole lot for the money you pay, at least not outside of the Sale.

I still love their skins, but that still put me off.

So now, I wear a new combination of skin + skinlayers. I really do like it a lot. :-) Thoughts on it? And…there are even Tango-appliers for this one. :D

As for the new outfit: I tried to put together a layered outfit with pretty much mesh-only items. :)

I survive by the memory…of you.

Hello peeps!

So, where was I? Mostly, in bed. The past weeks were odd for me and finally I got my bum up and went ot the doc, turns out I have a dysfunctional thyroid which caused me to be tired and feel sick all the time. I could sleep 18 hours in a  row at times and still felt as if it were possibly 2-3 hours at most. Well, with the new pills this should hopefully stop now and I’ll be able to spend some more time blogging again. :) My apologies if blogging is going slow, but an extremely busy rl + this stupid stuff really kept me distracted.

Please forgive that in my following post I won’t post every single (make up/skin-) layer I use. I have gotten a bit tired of meeting almost exact copies of my avatar ingame. While I can see how people might just want the same look, I never considered this blog being a guide about “How to copy every single bit of an avatar” but it is more meant to be inspirational. Especially now, that I finally got my absolutely perfect skin for my elf (I really do love the new Laqroki skin, but it just looked TOO innocent for my elf), I’d like that look to stay unique for a while, though I don’t doubt some of you people will figure out what I did anyways. :P

By the way, not fan of this new wordpress layout. Hmph. Never change a running system, damnit!

I just want to share your light

Hey there,

I haven’t been posting in some time. Two reasons: I got a whole LOT of work to do in reallife and well…World Of Warcraft’s new expansion is out, which means I spent a good portion of my free time leveling my hunter. But here is the outfit I currently love most. It doesn’t involve new releases, it’s not super meshy, but it is an outfit I personally really do like. :) Hope you like it as well! The picture was taken at Port Kar. Please note that I got a special permission to show up there like this. It is a gorean sim and as well all know, women in Gor don’t carry weapons and certainly have no elven ears. ;)

Think about all the stories that we could’ve told

Hey fashiongals,

Kumi is out!! Mochi Milena of Pink Fuel finally (!) released her Kumi skin. You can choose from eight different skintones and each package (1100 Lindens) comes with four eyebrow versions, two make ups in each pack as well as four different eyebrows (red, blonde, brown and dark), two different eyelid-version (one for the asian, one for the caucasian look) and a TON of awesome lipsticks. I am a big fan of Mochi’s lipglosses and lipsticks, so thats a giant plus for me. Given the bunch of skins you get in only one package, the price of 1100 Lindens is very reasonable imho.

I personally am SO HAPPY that she reworked her skintones. Not too long ago, I pointed out the yellow tint on her old skins on Flickr, and she gave me a bunch of skins of hers to review them and write down suggestions what to change. If THAT’S not customer service…then I don’t know. I am amazed to see that she actually took the things that were said (not only by me of course) to heart and reworked them and in my opinion, the result is really nice. I especially like the darker tones, which are not as ashen as most skins without going into the orangey tone-scale.

I like the body though I personally prefer a bit more of a natural look to the boobies. However I think teh skins are of a high quality and at first sight I couldn’t spot any seams or oddities. The shadings seem fine, too.

Also, I think the face is VERY pretty…but also very innocent. It might not be the most fitting skin for my pretty but kind of badass elf…what do YOU think? :) I do think I’d have to redo the shape a little? I also was so greedy that I accidentally bought a wrong tone….but now I am happy with it anyway.

And here’s my outfit for the day:
