Si è spento il sole nel mio cuore per te

Heya peeps!

So, I was thinking about my blog lately and where I wanna go with it. I am STILL not quite sure, but one thing I will keep: I want to take pretty (well, I suppose that will always be a matter of taste really) pictures of outfits mixed and match for role-play, and I want to keep including mainstream stores a lot. Also, perhaps I will blog for modern role-play (aka mainstream outfits) every now and then, but not sure yet. I will keep blogging reviews on skins and hair every now and then. I want it to be an honest blog with honest critique.

What would you like to see?

I was thinking (after chatting with someone certain and getting a hint here and there) that maybe every once in a while featuring a sim that I personally like, sort of a sim review, would be a nice idea. Would that be a good idea or just get me banned all over the palce when I dare to point out some negative stuff? :D We’ll see. I hope not. Involving some more furniture every now and then might be an option as well. So, here is a poll:

Thank you, Gogo, for giving me also hints and ideas for pictures, stuff I could do etc. :)

So, here is my today’s outfit:

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!

Botters going Nuts – What can we do?

Hey there,

well, after the whole giant mess around Curio, we already know how damn hard it is for creators in SL to protect their own creations from less creative people who want to leech money…also known as copybotters, texture-rippers and so on. And now it looks as if things are picking up once again.

Since quite some time, there are viewers available which will allow anyone to copy any avatar, including their skin, clothes, textures, hair, eyes and probably everything else, within a few seconds. You say this cannot happen? Well, it happened RIGHT in front of my eyes. I was role-playing with a friend (well, actually we were about to) and I have a bad habit of camming around… a LOT. I was wondering why there was a noobie looking avatar not too far away, clearly they did not belong into that sim, but shrugged it off, turned around to talk to my bf, looked back at my screen, and suddenly my friend stood there, when I was pretty sure I had not moved my cam. ;) At first I was confused, but when I saw my buddy was still standing next to me, and still I had his avi on my camera, when it was about 80 yards away….well, go figure. That happened within maybe 10 seconds. Confronting the person they freely admitted that they thought it was completely okay using that viewer, not against TOS, avatars are for everyone, bla bla bla. I reported them to every simowner I knew and Mister Rulen resident is now on a lot of banlists.

Now, yesterday I looked at my Flickr and saw this:

Read the whole story here:

Sanya Bilavio’s (Vive9) Flickr

It appears, that once again Marie2 Cisse and her gang of girls (likely her own alts or some other equally stupid people) managed to draw lots and lots of attention to herself and her…’store’. In this case, she copybotted Inna’s complete shape, skin, custom make up and everything else, informed her about it and since then is bragging about how well it sells, of course after trying to ‘bribe’ her into giving her Lindens in order to prevent her from reselling a shape/make up etc. she never created herself.

A few comments from dear Marie2 Cisse  and ‘friends’ towards the creator of the items:

[2012/11/02 12:23] Second Life: Alexandriala has given you this body part:
Inna Bilavio shape
Do you want to keep it? “Mute” will block all future offers or messages from Alexandriala.
[2012/11/02 12:23] Alexandriala: Your shape has been copybotted.
[2012/11/02 12:23] Alexandriala: And will be sold.

———————-

They try and bribe designers after they bot them as well ::

[2012/10/15 14:08] Gerusa Bastos (marie2.cisse): you lose your mind
[2012/10/15 14:08] Gerusa Bastos (marie2.cisse): creating skin
[2012/10/15 14:09] Gerusa Bastos (marie2.cisse): you think those skins will be on sale
[2012/10/15 14:09] Gerusa Bastos (marie2.cisse): for 1k or more
[2012/10/15 14:09] Gerusa Bastos (marie2.cisse): I can do it for 300L
[2012/10/15 14:09] Gerusa Bastos (marie2.cisse): Full fat pack
[2012/10/15 14:09] Gerusa Bastos (marie2.cisse): :)
[2012/10/15 14:09] Gerusa Bastos (marie2.cisse): Maliah skin will sell more with me than you
[14:10] Gerusa Bastos (marie2.cisse): 20k i am offering
[14:10] Gerusa Bastos (marie2.cisse): for don’t distruing this skin

[17:26] issela2: Poor gurl. Never more will be at Eila?
[17:26] issela2: HAHAHA
[17:26] issela2: Take care
[17:34] issela2: I’ve all your mesh stuff
[17:34] issela2: And I’m going to giving away this

Here she goes on bragging and already posting advertisements for ‘her newest creations’:

Marie2 Cisse’s Flickr

and

Marie2 Cisse Flickr

Now, with Linden Labs forcing creators to go through lengthy and COSTLY legal processes, I wonder what we can do against such people? Not everyone can fork out the money to pay for such processes or even think about going to court, and not everyone will be able to fund money as Gala Phoenix and her team did with the ONE VOICE event. The process to actually get someone banned fro such things is absurd in Second Life, as sad as it is. Obviosu proof is not enough, you gotta file DMCAs, which can simply be countered…and so on. We all saw it happen with Gala.

So, what CAN we do? That is really the key-question. In my humble opinion, spreading the word about people like these, trying to convince people not to shop there, and that is why I am posting this.

However, quite frankly, the creators of Vive9 would likely do well with telling certain people, such as the dearest Lady Gericault, to shut the hell up, since people like her are NOT helping them by behaving like complete crazies in public. Argue with style, not like some raging rhino using capslock all over the place. O.o

Not too long ago, racist comments caused people to convince Linka Demina, founder of The Dressing Room, to not allow TIGirls to participate in the event due to obvious racist comments. View this here:
Linka Demina’s Flickr

They somehow managed to worm they way out of that, though even if the comments were a joke, they were incredibly stupid. But people forgive. But personally, I am out of forgiveness. I am simply asking everyone I know, to ignore these people, to NOT buy their stolen stuff, to spread the word.

I would appreciate if people would actually do this.

The following people are involved with Marie2 Cisse or are her alts:

Marie2 Cisse, Alexandriala, Alemanha (sallygirlpaty aho), Miss Fedorova
and more than likely all the names in this picture, in which she accuses Götzsche Resident to be herself:

Other alts

Autumn hits the grid and I love it! :)

Hello peeps,

I finally got my new comp and of course now I tooka pic of my current favourite outfit. Autumn hit Germany, so I decided to go with very autumnliek colours as well. I love them! I also decided to not go with the newest of the newest items possible, but also mix some of my alltime favourites to create a very…scoundrel-like outfit. I just love any kinds of adventuring elves. ;)

Also, you might notice that I managed to get rid of that slightly yellowish tint of the Body Co skin. How? Arriah Fiertze from Medley released a SKIN DETONER which works just fantastically. I LOVE it. It makes so many skins (like old ones from Pink Fuel, Laqroki, the new Vive9 skin etc.) look so much better without that sickly yellow tint. :) Many, many thanks to you, Arriah.

Also, stay tuned for the new LAQROKI skinline,s they are about to be released. I saw some previews and they are…MWAH!

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:

I don’t know what you are looking for

I haven’t been super-inspired lately. For some reason I get the feeling that more and more of SL fashion is being overwhelmed with allllll the same stuff all over the place. I am not sure if I can only blame the templates, or generally US, the users, too. There are however a few notable exceptions. :)

Also, I switched back to my Orchid skin for good now, mixing it with a soft, naural lipstick from MOCK. I never liked the dry looking lips on Orchid at all, but the overall skin is just so nice and I got tired of my League skin (despite it being pretty!) for now. What do you think? :O Thoughts? I am still waiting for Laqroki’s new line…grrr!
