Ok… What’s new?

Hello,

Hydrangea_004

Lately, I have seen several complaints from people that designers they liked were not making mesh stuff yet. The important words to remember in the last sentence are “designers” and “not yet”. Probably most people have missed the following fact, or they don’t care about it, but most of the good mesh clothes we are having at our disposal are made from the same full permissions templates, designed by Damien Fate who is offering us high quality products, setting a high standard from the start for other mesh creators. Some people who are using those templates are adding value to the product, offering us a nice texturing work, adding their touch. Others are just assembling a mesh and a random texture. They don’t care if the final result is ugly, people are taken in the mesh crazyness and will buy it anyway, ugly or not, added value or not. Of course, there is nothing new about this: what was occuring with sculpties is occuring with meshes. Unfortunately, that is not new that many people have forgotten about being objectively critical.

Hydrangea

To illustrate my writings, I have chosen a funky dress from The Secret Store which is still available for one more week at the Dressing Room. I have picked this one for two reasons. First, it does not need to be mesh stuff to be awesome. Maylee Oh is spoiling us with something you can call real designing work, her creations are unique. You will not find the same sculpted prims on other people’s clothes. Second, Maylee is a perfectionnist. She is very able to create mesh, she has already started, but she wants it to be very good, designed by herself, before she releases something, like she has always been doing with any of her creations. I believe a lot of designers are busy lately discovering the new possibilites, and very soon they will release awesome new creations. Others are happy to share with us their first creations as group gifts. When you are trying those gifts, please always remember they are work in progress, that the designers are getting their hands at this new toy and that they, at least, have the courage to learn and try something new.

Now, it is up to you to see which are your quality standards. I am happy with some clothes made from full permissions templates if they have added value. I am even happier with unique original creations and if I have to be patient to get that, I am glad to wait. I am much less happy about people who have forgotten (nerver had?) their objective critical mind and dare bitching about brands which do not have mesh yet. But yeah… that is not new.

In Laq Thea Skin

To end this post on a positive note, here is the new LAQ Thea skin. On my shape it looks a bit more mature than their last faces so I am a happy customer with a pretty new skin.

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?

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.
