I love What’s New SL Group, biased maybe, but today I got to feature some people that I have explored as stores due to the group. What I love more though, is when people provide all info in notices…that’s what What’s New SL was mainly set up for…but when it actually happens, it is very cool. Such as sending all landmarks to different locations so that if I happen to be intending to go to one location and get a notice for a store there, I can pop into it while already there, yes that means updating satelites locations, but it is due to those that many of us find your mains anyway.
Rant, Rant, Rant…
It isn’t a race, I cannot be the only one that is out shopping ; hears that there is a new release by a certain store, and knows they have a smaller store where I am, run or cam over to see items that are six months old if not older, then just gets sadface. Yeah getting ranty, but seriously you people pay to have these locations represent your product, so why not set up newness at all your spots THEN send the notice ? in RL it is a lot harder to do that but they do, so why in SL where it takes ten seconds to tp to the other side of the grid would you not ?
Rant, Rant, Rant…
Unless there is purple on the scarecrow or in the fields, this post won’t have any…but if you squint you can mix the red and blue together to make it yourself. Ok actually, I am going to totally throw the side of the boat at all those people that argue with me and try and tell me that that colour is purple, because it is so blue, but we have this debate all the time.
I don’t own any bunnies, and I don’t plan to, but the fun thing about everyone od’ing on them, is that I have been able to see some amazing sims because of the obsession. One such build is Farmhaven, which is actually a residential sim for people that like the laid back farm life. It is really beautiful and I do hope that the owners of the sim don’t mind that I took some pics there.
So I have this dream this morning, that if I broke it down, I could attribute to the whole week in Second Life. The main theme was that I was late for a wedding, in which I was in the wedding party – seeing as I did a post wearing a wedding gown, it is lucky I didn’t dream I was the bride. So anywho, we were in the car on the way finally, with only 15 mins to get there, and I realised while putting on my shoes – yes everything that could go wrong did go wrong – that the shoes I grabbed were brown suede, actual shoes I have RL in storage as a matter of fact, so that was funny.
So there is me screeching to the driver, a good friend not a chauffer , that we had to go back …she did a uturn and we ended up about a block from my house – house I haven’t lived in since 1993- and she pulled over to answer her cell phone “damn you cougar town ‘ so I jumped out and ran blah blah blah …
So I slept for like 16 hours, logging in at the end of everyones day is so weird, but I also guess so aussie too. I am having way too much fun with this so called punishment. I might even end up wearing purple a lot more often in posts if it comes in packs that way.
I wonder why you have to have full bright on to get a tint to tint properly, I mean what Linden worked out that that was the only way it would work, and night time be damned. Nothing sillier I am afraid than turning night to night for a romantic dance at some beautiful location, and seeing people hair on full bright.
Last night Whimsy, Gary and me were out at the new build Nemo, if you haven’t been you need to go, it is amazing. While there we met a new resident who told us he was a photographer in RL. We got so excited that this man would go on to find out that Second Life offers so much opportunity for those with a photographic vision. The tools may be completely different, but the photography that comes out of Second Life every day in ALL of its forms, is just amazing.
The reason that we have such an incredible talent pool though, is also a lot to do with the incredible pose makers we have…some started out just making poses that worked for their own pics, and some really wanted to add to the movement of the basic avatar, making dreams come true, and the imagination sparkle.
Due to the fact that Fia wasn’t around today, I couldn’t get myself a custom wedding set, so no purple other than the backdrop in this one..but I will make up for it in other posts. I really was in the mood to shoot this tonight though, so I went with it, I am sure that Ashia will be a sport about it :P.
Honestly if it wasn’t for the generosity of the designers that send fat packs to be blogged, I would have a hard time doing this so called punishment purple week. But luckily they realise that we can go back to an item long after originally being posted, and feature a colour we may not have shown the first, second or third time, nothing like that added exposure to your brand lol.
It is also the easiest way to send stuff ….right click take copy of the vendor and send, easy done, no need to make up folders and stuff …I don’t know how people keep all that stuff straight sometimes. It is also wicked for making back ups of your vendors as singles for customer care and sending to an alt, but me and my belief on all designers sending everything they make to alts is a whole different post.
It is fun revisiting older items, especially as it is something I enjoy doing often, showing older things so they can become new to someone. Such is the case of the top in the first pic, and the bottoms in the second. With some newness thrown into the mix.
Ok so I am in the sin bin for a week. The punishment is that I have to wear something purple in every single post. Now purple lovers don’t get all persnickety, I have an issue with one particular purple, not all…it’s just become such a thing for me, that I tend to shy away from most automatically now. I had a purple coloured room, and my best friend growing up loved it, it was such an 80′s teen girl thing for sure.
So I never had a problem with it, I also love plums and the shades that vary throughout the purple spectrum, but I hate one particular purple and it is because it has a violent memory spark attached to it for me. So when I say I don’t like it, don’t misunderstand me, it isn’t a hate for the colour, it is really a hate for the memory. So Ashia this isn’t really a punishment *grins*.
Whenever I say it will be a quickie, it ends up almost if not longer than my larger posts…so I am not even going to bother with that today. It is only one pic because I actually took it the other day, and then switched skins mid shoot and thought that was just all too aesthetically muddled.
When I saw the notice for this skirt it was instant love, I say that a lot I know, but when I do it is true, it’s the lieing sacks of poo that think pretending they don’t you have to watch out for. You know the ones, they sit in plurk or twitter, or some random group they made to backstab those they call friends, then put down a designer because they think it is ‘cool’ but guaranteed next release of that designer that little parasite is the first to tp.
I am a city girl, and I am staying that way. Lately I have seen a lot of very casual releases from stores, like so casual it has been stressing me out. Is it trend ? is it what is being seen in fashion mags, or T.V ? or is it just simply just that people have given up on dressing up ?
I have literally sat on my bed RL in tears on a Sunday morning around the mid 90′s , because I have realised I don’t have a damn thing to wear to a christening. All of my clothing was going out wear, or business/work attire, I just didn’t do day time – I was usually not awake – that day after sending my boyfriend (then) around the bend, had to resort to mums wardrobe for at least a dressy shirty/sweatery thing of some kind that wasn’t black.
Don’t get me wrong, I like jeans and shirts and items of that kind in SL too, but we seem to have them coming from all directions. They are nice to throw on once in a while, but they will never be an only choice for me.
