Yesterday I mentioned Ipernity, and I came across my first hiccup with it so far. I was unable to use the link to Plurk for just the image, where as with flickr and other services that is usually just a case of copying and pasting the URL. Whimsy has made a ticket to find out with them what the story is, she has a lot of tickets with them so far, she is so adorable. I actually opened up contact with them too about something, so I will keep you posted on what that is when/if I get a response. As I said, I am still using Flickr, never really intended to leave it, just have no issue uploading in two places…it’s just a new thing to do. Whimsy has made a ton of groups in there already, and people are joining and it could really be a great community as well. It is not like we all don’t have many places we spread our Second Lifeness around, this is just a new one.
Today I was playing around and discovered something interesting, YOU CAN GET YOUR OLD VIEW ON FLICKR BACK. This is not permanent, it does not stay each time you leave the page etc, but for those of you that want to see your own page in the old format and see everything at a glance, this is how. On your own page, there is an edit menu, I circled it in the image, and when you press it PRESTO, there it is. Now what I don’t understand, is if this is a function hardcoded into their system……
Today was a huge day, first off I moved all of my Flickr Pics over to Ipernity, which is a photo site that Whimsy Winx found when things changed at Flickr. I have a 3 month account and will see how I like it in comparison to Flickr, but I will still post pictures to both locations, as I am part of so many groups and such on Flickr. It was really easy to transfer my pictures, and it also included all the tags, names, and information along with it…so that made things simple.
Then after that I released some New Nail Appliers for FLAIR. Eight new sets with lingerie and latex themes. I am wearing one of the latex sets in this post, because I am really loving the extra long nails. Then after that Sysy, Whimsy, Kavar and I went shopping. A trip to Mandala, then over to Tee*fy and lastly Kavar and I landed at C’est La Vie. There is a sub brand inside of it called ::K:: and I fell instantly in love with this jacket and shorts set. They come in either separates or the combination, and there are three types, denim, leather or this fabulous houndstooth. There is saving on buying the combination, and there are also jackets with an undertank included. I decided to wear this great tank from Somnia underneath it, and it looks great with just the shorts as well.
One of the great things about mesh clothing, is we now have the ability to wear shorts in cuter, more stylish ways. These shorts by Tee*fy that are at Collabor88 this month are just adorable, the two tone colours, the edging on the bottoms, and the lovely bow tied waist…make them perfect shorts to wear whether casually, or with purpose. Because they are higher waisted, it was a bit tricky finding something to wear up top, but the other item at c88 by Tee*fy is this glorious blouse with the divine frilly detailing down the front.
I have a slight obsession with pinstripe, I think it is a fantastic fabric, and just love what can be done with it now that we have mesh. In the past system layers would distort pinstripe that it often just was not a good look, but now we can revel in it. The NEW Portan bustier/corset top from SySy’s just hit the store, and it comes in many delicious colours. There are also amazing brights colours and the lemon will be my favourite especially with the upcoming sunnier SL days…while I freeze my buns off Down Under.
Every year I declare to myself I wont follow the seasons in SL that I will try and stick to my own, so that I can at least feel snuggly and warm, but there are always such beautiful creations released, there is no way that can ever happen. It is rough during our summer though, sweating and bundling up my avatar in snow boots and parkas lol. While summer in SL can fool me into feeling warmer, winters in SL just makes it hotter.
I was lucky enough this morning to get a sneak peak of the lovely NEW foot add on jewellery, by Adam n Eve creator Sachi Vixen. They are rigged mesh, and come with 6 metals in a texture change HUD, and 12 birthstones are available to purchase. ATTENTION MEN OF SL! I personally think these will be wonderful presents for the women in your life, as they are very personal with the birthstones, and just really lovely to wear and show off your beautiful Slink Bare Feet. I will wear them again in the future for sure, and I am definitely going to be romping around the grid barefoot and jewelled up for sure.
Also NEW the Aria skins that I did a preview post on the other week, are now available in full release in the League store. The skins are beautiful with their full make up range, as well as appliers available for the feet, hands and breasts. They come in three tones, with the fatpack of all three tones available at a huge savings, so if you are on the look out for a darker skin in a few different tones, definitely check out the big pack as an option.
I have been absent the last few days, spending a little time fixing some RL stuff, and it has been relaxing. I was still able to attend to What’s New SL stuff and The Deck…but it gave me a chance to get my mind in order for the upcoming months of Hair Fair preparation. It is definitely an exciting time of the year, and there are so many great events going on now, as well as in preparation for the time before that. I heard about SummerFest yesterday and that looks like an awesome event. If you haven’t heard of it, I suggest if you are a store you jump on the chance to be involved, you can find the application for that HERE.
Also don’t forget you have Collabor88 going on, as well as FaMESHed‘s 1st Birthday celebration. That is a lot of great stuff to see and do. Today though my post is about items not at events. The other day I was looking at my UnBra skins folder and was wondering what had happened to that store, well sure enough if you think hard enough, things happen. The creator of UnBra skins has released two ( only one shown today) new skins, and not only do they have great make ups, and cleavage options etc, but they are all compatible with Tangos and also Slink avatar enhanced hands and feet appliers are available. So with a new release comes big things…
It is rare that I do location pictures, but this beautiful Maxi dress by SySy’s – for the ongoing Birthday Celebration at FaMESHed – needed to be seen as it would be worn. I love the long flow of the dress, and the soft gradual dye look in the colours, both soft and dark colour packs available. What is really great is the hand drawn flower that SySy hand drew herself, making this not just a beautiful dress, but wearable art. The style is very giving size wise also, even though standard sizes, I was actually able to go down a size, as I usually wear Small up top, but this time XS was wearable and well too.
The jewellery I am wearing with the dress is also from FaMESHed and is the release by Maxi Gossamer, of Gossamer Jewellery who it seems has also gone into clothing creation now, which is exciting news. So check those out. The Jewellery comes with silver or gold options as well as colour choices via clickable menu for the gems.
