Old and new

Test WL

This outfit is almost old and new as the upper body is covered with system clothes and sculpties while I am wearing mesh pants, belt and shoes for the bottom. Both have benefits of different kinds aswell as annoying characteristics. Nothing like system clothes and sculpties to create an outfit. You can layer them, move the pieces, make them fit. It allows for more creation. Of course rigged mesh are… rigged, wear them as they are, no change is allowed. For example, while I absolutely love the textures on mesh clothing, it is nearly impossible to wear boots with mesh pants. For a big fan of boots like me, this is really annoying. While I understand this makes a huge additional work for the designers who are already playing with 5 sizes, I would appreciate to see boots versions for pants. I am not asking for perfection, as it varies a lot from the height of the boots but if at least the pants could be smaller at the ankles so they don’t go out of the boots, this would help.

Tests contrastes

As I don’t want to sound like I am only ranting about mesh… tiny sculpted prims are a hell! It has been bugged for years now in the official viewer. As soon you zoom out, they disappear. You have no idea how often I have clone stamped jewelry from other pictures because I had forgotten to click on everything for the 36th time for the pose i prefered.

Ok, enough rant, now the credits:

Resolution

Carla 2

Lately I have been changing my blog layout and have been playing with the size of the pictures aswell. In the past, I found the images were a bit too small and not standing out. Now, I am under the impression they are a bit too big and you cannot see the whole picture at once. So I am trying another sizing: 600 x 750 pixels. On my computer with my resolution, it works fine. I am curious wether it is ok for you with different screens so let me know what you think about it please.

Carla

I am also working on a new shape I will try to release soon, well, when I am satisfied with it which might not be so soon. Here is a first glimpse of Carla, though the shape in that state already doe not exist anymore as I have changed the chin since I have taken the pictures.

I know I won’t become rich with selling shapes. I can tell I am actualy spending more money styling a shape than earning anything from the sales. It does not matter much, it is part of my fun in Second Life, it has been before I have started to blog and I guess it is the case for a lot of people who are doing the same. So I just hope you’ll like this one.

Crimson Leopard

Ison Vintage

Of course I could have titled this post Vintage Ison as I am showcasing some releases of Ison for the Vintage Fair. But it would have been too easy and while I like vintage, I have to admit what made me choose for this look is its rock attitude with leather pants and dress and animal printed blazer.

Since I have seen previews of the Ison girl Panic Boots, I just want them! And now these babies are mine! I am in love with their punk rock side with the british flag on the top.

Ison Vintage 2

One of the major assets of vintage is you can mix it with much more modern elements to arrive to a result which is almost always elegant. It is like vintage is never out of date, always coming back, always reinvented. I definately did not need a special occasion to go vintage, did you?

This post is vintage as in made with items found at the Vintage Fair but it is definately an outfit I could have put up together on other occasions. I love mixing genres, the classical ladylike precious jewelry from Donna Flora is always a win for such looks, aswell as a small 50’s style hat, in this case a new release from Nardcotix for the fair.

Of course, I needed a cluth from Vive 9 for the vintage side, not a bag, clutches are so much more elegant.

Finally, for the hair, I have picked a new style from Boon. I have chosen this one for its wild curls forming a chignon on the side of the head, making it such a fun hairdo, going on with the rock side of the outfit.

Hoping you have enjoyed this rock vintage lady post, see you next time !

Cappucino

Hello,

Cappucino 2

Zaara has new distressed jeans in several colors. I’ve picked the coffee one to play on the cappucino idea with a frilly top from Lo Momo and a poncho from Donna Flora in the role of the cream.

Cappucino 1

The new jeans have some interesting details like a pocket watch and they have four different kinds of legs: skinny, skinny-fold, straight and wide, which is awesome so you can wear them with about any shoes you like and have different styles in one purchase.
