Old Car – No Shoe Fair

Hello,

Old Car

I had planned to head to the shoe fair for the week-end but of course that damned old car had to have a problem on the road. Now I seem to be stuck in the middle of nowhere. The guy at the garage was not really helpful, I bet he is going to suck as much money for the repairs as he can.

I see a man over there, a bit bad boy, but rather good looking. He is standing next to some motorcycle. Let’s go see if he can help me…

Kawaii Cowgirl

Hello,

Cowgirl

Don’t worry, or I am sorry, it depends on your point of view on the subject, but no, I am not changing my style for kawaii. It is cute, nice, sweet, etc. but that is definately not me. BUT… I’ve got that great friend who has a serious kawaii tendance and who tried to corrupt me last night, I will give her name, cause once again, it is all her fault: Maylee Oh! She had the great *coughs* idea to drag me to japanese stores, the pink ribbons ones, you know, the ones I see and walk to the other side of the street…

Cowgirl 2

After several sims and shops, even Maylee was feeling a bit nauseous from all the kawaii shamallows. You see, it is cute, sweet, etc. but it is just like sugar, a little is nice, too much and you got sick. We were about to give up when we both sighted the same tunic at Lo*momo. Courageously, I’ve left her try a red one first. I know, I am nice. We rapidly agreed the fluffy lace ribbon skirt was to be avoided but the top was so cute I’ve picked a light brown one. In a previous store, yorim’s, I had bought that fur and feather pochette. Rapidly the idea to work on cowgirl look was born. I also wanted to use one of the new Confetti minis skirts from Sn@tch. These are simply a must-have basic for any wardrobe.

Maybe you will have noticed something new for me in these three pictures, it is the depth of field, the blur that is more intense as you move away from the camera focus. I was finaly able to have the new S21 build of Kirsten’s viewer to work on my computer. I don’t know why but the S20 was not working for me so maybe you might give it a try too and test it by yourself.

Not related to the pictures above:
As you probably know, Linden Lab has introduced a big change in the creation of Second Life accounts as it now requires only one name. This has lead to a massive creation of alts to reserve names, aswell for individuals as for brand names. Once again, Linden Lab has opened Pandora’s box and has offered new ways to ill-minded wicked people to harm the ones they don’t like or even to scam known brands by creating a username before they could get it. Worse, the new created avatar appears in top of the search feature. Imagine you’re looking for shop ABCDXYZ which is famous for its sexy clothes, but what you found in the search is avatar ABCDXYZ created by a concurrent and which will misguide you. Or people trying to resell their brand names to designers. If you want more details about some of the trouble this has brought, please read the following articles:
SL Username Changes on Grid Expectations
What’s my name on Shopping Cart Disco
And what for all this? Probably for a marketing campaign so Linden Lab can artificially inflate their user numbers to better sell the company to Microsoft. Showing once more how little they care about actual Second Life Residents.
We cannot do much about it but at least, we can ask to minimize the harm done to people and brands by voting for this Jira Against Avatar Name Mis-usage which basicly asks that the new avatars at least don’t appear on top of the search. Please vote!

Let’s keep SL Lives Separated

Hello,

I’ll diverge a bit from the mirror theme to speak about SL/RL layers, and more… lot of people are hiding behind their screen, we all have very pretty avatars. Designer United theme, Narcissus, is such a metaphore for SL in its whole. Second Life, the place where we are all so beautiful and like to contemplate ourselves, but please, forget about what/who is behind the screen. Who cares about hurting an avatar?

Behind the mirror 2

Most of the time, people get trouble in Second Life as it takes too much on their Real Life. Yesterday evening, thanks to some jerk, i’ve discovered a new layer to this: no RL (ok, i am fine with that), no SL (hmmm I am only busy in SL at the moment), but ok for another game? What kind of people can tell you that he likes you a lot, he wants you to leave everything you’re up to in SL and go play with him that other game “but our lives in SL remains like what we have now: separated… the point is i have a SL gf, i have fun with her, etc”. In his kindness, after i told him he is an asshole, he said i was allowed to IM him from time to time in SL, of course… Worst in this is that guy doesn’t even understand why i am not interested and told him he could forget about me as a friend. Right after that, i felt like looking at my back to see if a tail had grown in the meantime. hmm no, no tail, i am not yet a pet you can whistle when you need some company and leave alone when you have better to do.

Bonnie

She could have been a nice girl, she could have been sweet and wise, she could have had a boring life… but… she met Clyde Barrow.

Jolene Bonnie Portrait

The skin is only available for a limited time at Atomic for Stumblebum Brigade, hairstyle is last FLF Clawtooth offer and the necklace is available at The Dressing Room. I am not sure the shoes can still be purchased. I got them at a special event some months ago. The shirt was taking dust in my inventory for something like 2 years. It only comes on the jacket layer so this look was only possible thanks to the great new feature from 2.1 SL Viewer which allows you to add up to 5 other clothings on the same layer.

This week’s theme for Project Themeory is Vaudeville and the stool and paravent are What Next special offer for the event.

New at Dutch Touch and Aoharu

Hello,

one more new face has arrived at Dutch Touch this morning, Xaya. As always, you can find the powdered effect which caracterizes Dutch Touch Skins but this time, the nose is very different. It makes me think of a rose bouton, cute and round. The way it is drawn is pretty special as I don’t remind me having seen anything like this in the past. There is only one eyebrow option, so this skin might not suit every color of hair though the tone chosen is not too dark. I’ve picked the basic make-up (750 L$ with VIP group instead of 1000 L$) which depicts best the work on the other details of the face. If you’re looking for a fresh face, Xaya might be the one.

Emma Dutch Touch

As Xaya has that sweet fresh touch to it, I thought new releases from Aoharu were perfect for the romantic nostalgy of The Far Away Sim. While the shirt is nothing very new from Aoharu, just a declinaison of what was released in the past, the lace skirt is pretty cute and the Anexx Cowboy boots are great looking with fancy details and realistic fringes.

Now… the little rant of the day… while it is convenient for people who have no idea about how the basic building tool is working, I hate resize scripts. I am not even wearing jewelry and I just cannot TP away with this outfit. Avatar rendering cost 7714! Ever heard about lag? Remove the boots => down to 4066. So wear those great boots, look good with them and don’t try to do anyting else, anyway, you will lag your hell out trying to do anything with them. Remove the shirt => 2928. Remove the skirt => 1353 ! BAN RESIZE SCRIPTS! Thank you! Seriously, prims and sculpies are already enough resources eater without adding useless scripts to the count.
