Cutting Corners

Standard

Sometimes i like to take a break from clothes and avatars and do a little furniture and decor post, so today i bring you all a little bit of the Four Walls Hunt  that is ongoing until the end of the month.

Again i feel so happy for the coming of mesh, i look at these pics and see such huge improvements in quality when it comes to all rezzable objects available at this time. This last year or so made furniture quality bloom, and most of all diversity with not only more details but lower land impacts, and the huge amount of more blog posts on furniture, houses and home decor shows how much the market grew.

So today here it is a small sample of some items available on the hunt, (Check the creators list here) and a few bits and bobs i had about in my inventory.

See you all again soon, and remember to enjoy your SL Homes.

These are a few of my favourite things part 2

Standard

Some time ago i did a blog about some of my favourite shops over the past year, on that post you can find here: These are a few of my favourite things part 1 i talked mostly about skins, and of course a lot was left out, so today i bring you clothes and jewelry.

Now let´s talk about clothes, the advent of mesh brought a lot of changes to how we wear clothes these day, issues with standard sizes, templates and deformer where highly talked this year, most creators had to adapt and learn not also mesh but rigging, for some it was easier than for others, a huge amount of new shops came out, and a few won ground in customer preferences. I adore mesh clothes, system layers and even hybrids of both.

The amount of shops i usually wear here is quite big and it would be impossible to talk extensively about them all, so i´m gonna simply name a few of my favourites over the past year and talk maybe a bit more on some newcomers.

My favourites for blogging and regular wear this year where: MaitreyaGeometryBiloZaaraLeagueCracked MirrorErraticIngenueColdLogic, These of course are just a few of the many brands you can find in SL or my inventory, but basically the shops i end up wearing more here and/or inworld: But a few shops stand out for me this year as you can see on my next paragraph.

Wearing: 
Shape: mine 
Skin: Belleza - Wynter Skin
Eyes: Izzie’s – Natural Mesh Eyes 
Eyelashes: Maxi Gossamer -  Eyelashes – Groomed
Hair: booN
Dress: Volstead  – Empire
Jewelry: [HANDverk] - Beaded Leather Necklace and Earrings

It was pretty cool to see Glam Affair  start doing clothes and even more recently hair also, i can´t wait to see more clothes from them.

I don´t really do Roleplay in SL but Volstead  that started as an entry of clothes for a themed 20´s RP sim contest has won my heart and not only are the clothes gorgeous and some of my favourite of this year, but they work outside of RP environments.

Another two shops i´ve keep and eye on most of the year are Perception and 22769 – casual couture, Maggie started doing corsets and does some of the best shaped ones in sl due to her knowledge in corsetery in actual RL, and i´ve seen her work move well father away from simply corsets to a whole new array of products.

In the meanwhile the boys from 22769 can basically do it all it seems, they do furniture, clothes for both sexes house and decor stuff, there´s nothing they can´t do and they do it always with a smile, meaning Manu and Paco also get a prize for nicest creators in SL this year.

Wearing: 
Shape: mine 
Skin: Glam Affair- Renee (My Attic)
Eyes: Izzie’s – Natural Mesh Eyes 
Eyelashes: Maxi Gossamer -  Eyelashes – Groomed
Hair: Truth - Sassy (My Attic)
Corset: Perception - Overbust Corset — Capricorn (Zodiac)
Necklace: Perception - Capricorn Horn Necklace (Zodiac)

Now jewelry, in RL i can´t wear earings, not for more than 15 minutes before the itching starts i don´t wear necklaces either because i don´t like things around my neck, but in sl i can and do wear all of those, this year we had a few newcomers i fell in love with like House of Rain, stores i already knew and wore like, [HANDverk]LaGyo and lassitude & ennui and the biggest surprise of them all  Maxi Gossamer who now makes some of their sl pieces available for you also in Rl, follow the link to see which models are available here.

Well that´s all for now, hopefully i´ll be back soon with another instalement of my favourite things this last year, see you all soon and have a glorious weekend

Gravity Loss

Standard

Sometimes a sentence, an image, a video, a feeling inspires you, sometimes bloggers get stuck, not always for lack of ideas or inspirations, sometimes you´re just stuck and need a good kicking to get the engine going, well if you´re stuck you can turn to the [SL] Blogger Support group, i know i do quite  a few times, for tutorials, for locations, for a nudge or a helping hand, but now you can reach out for inspiration also with the new Inspire me weekly cues to help you out, with concepts.

I didn´t need the group help for these tho although it would certainly fit the Second Life and music category, since these where actually inspired by a video of Woodkid´s Iron, some people might remember the song from the Official Assassin´s Creed Revelations trailer, and it´s such a powerful video and music i´m sure it will inspire a lot more pictures.

I really enjoy these sort of composites, i sometimes moan and groan about how hard they are since it involves a lot of patience and SL collaborating with me and not crashing me half way thru it, but i was lucky yesterday and managed these, I´m not sure if the best way to show a house is to catapult yourself thru it, but this skybox is from Abyss and it will be available at The Men´s Department today, and seems a bit of a study of one of my favourite poses store, Adorkable including the amazing Falling set at this months My Attic.

So here it is sadly i can´t link the whole sequence in one panel, but hopefully the feeling and idea make sense, just remember you can always see the higher resolutions versions of these on my Flickr, and try not to loose your footing folks cause it´s only monday.

ETA: For those who missed it i blogged yesterday also over at The Hottie Cooterati Experience, in a bit more casual look and i got by With a little help from my friends
