Words are all i have

Standard

Again i say like so many times before that i´m not much of a shoe person, be it RL or SL i simply don´t get most women and quite a few men´s fascination about footwear, i usually go for comfy in RL and barefooted whenever possible, so when new feet come out i usually do check those.

A few days ago Gos decided to divide the shop in a way that would allow better branding and market segmentation, so Gos Boutique was born, not only catering just for women, but releasing over this weekend quite a few new models of shoes, and two bare feet versions in mesh (i´m wearing the flat version here) and a new revolutionary tinting system, well every woman just sighs and sometimes cringes when tinting is mentioned , i know i´ve spent quite a few hours messing with huds to get a reasonable match, i don´t even require a perfect match, just reasonable, and if you´re blogging it becomes tiring with every skin change, and trust me i do a lot of those, means a few more wasted minutes on feet tinting, time i could be using to enjoy SL.

And what´s so different from the these feet you may ask? Well to start the tinting database Gos offers already includes more than half of the grids skin makers, even better you can add online the suggestion for more skin creators to add to the database. My regular Mynerva wasn´t available, but a simple manual match was pretty fast to do, with pretty good results, and to know i won´t have to stress over about the other 80% skins in my inventory, makes these godsend to a blogger.

So i would totally classify these has my best buy so far this year because i also found them cheap, so cheap i have to go back to grab the arched version, and i enjoyed the system so much i even bought a pair of sandals, and am now waiting for more releases that will fit these, specially summer sandals. So be prepared to see them around a lot.

I also dropped by at Maitreya this weekend since they just releases a bunch of new goodies, some seasonal but mostly a new Nightlife collection all worth checking out, this was just one of my favourites in pretty purplish tones, another shop i visited over weekend was Dura not a regular shop for me but i´m loving their short hairs.

And cause i´m slowly learning how to take pics of shoes, i dusted up some Flowey poses i had in my inventory for ages waiting to be used, i sometimes do that keep things about until i find the perfect timming  and mood for them.

As for the title and general mood of today´s blog post it´s pretty much appropriate to how we deal with words and how much effect they have in our lives, something i´ve been thinking a lot about recently.

In the meanwhile enjoy your weekend everyone, happy shoe shopping and don´t forget to check my other blog post over at Hottie Cooterati from earlier here. Just take it easy today cause a new week is coming.

I hate when an event ends, I´m left with that sad feeling that there wasn´t enough time to do all the things, not just cause my blogging has been a tad erratic lately , but because i didn´t get to shop or blog all the things, like with these gorgeous Gos boots, or the fri.day hat both from Cinema, i knew when i first saw them i wanted a Indiana Jones inspired blog, but it took me ages to find all the other pieces, and the whole post was only actually ready when Adorkable released this Floored named set of ground sitting poses.

Part of me is sad it took me so long to actually be prepared and happy enough with it to actually publish it, the other proud says, you know girl, don´t do it unless you are really sure and comfortable with it, and i feel that i am, luckily for us all is never a wasted blog post, because most shops will either make their event items available at shops some time after it ends, and truly love that, sometime you just can´t make it to that event and catching it later, or a different version of it for me is always a plus.

And speaking of events remember we have Unhinged coming up on the 15th i already wrote about it the other day, and you can find all the extra info here, or just bug me for it.

Something else that happened this week got me pretty excited i got picked for Second Life Pic of the day on Monday so i´ve been snickering and proud all week (kidding i´ve been mostly surprised and blushing).

Tomorrow we get back to running events, and remember folks TGIF.

To finish of my post here it is the result of when you put comic books software in my hands, I take the jungle with style. Now i´m dreaming of those boots in zebra prints, in the meanwhile you can catch them at all the usual colours at the Gos store.

HUNT ALL THE MESH

Standard

Because Mesh Around is starting today at SL´s noon, and i bring you another small preview of some of the items available during at the hunt, since SL was not very kind to me yesterday, I only managed to take one picture, but it has not one but two Ely´s in it.

And so today i bring you: GeometryBilo[GoS]Trompe Loeil and [HANDverk].

For some flowy summer prettiness, two love sets, one a dress from Bilo, which you know how much i love, and the other, a set of two separates: skirt and blouse, that you can either mix and match with other Geometry separates, which i heard there will be more available pretty soon, or with casual jeans or even system layers.

And now let me talk about these pumps, I wish more shoe creators would enter hunts, not enough do to be honest, and it´s such a wonderful way to show of your designs, specially when the quality is so at a top-level like this.

I don´t think i´ve mentioned yet how much i love furniture in mesh, but i will now, first reason is more detail for less prims, both the furniture set by Trompe Loeil and this lovely clock by [HANDverk] are mesh and so easy to mod, for the picture i did some moding to them, i resized the clock to bigger and resized the table to smaller and also took out he shadow parts on the furniture.

And here is the second reason i love mesh furniture even more, resizing it will even lower it´s land impact values, making it the best option for tiny avatars and petite ones.
So remenber folks at noon the hunt starts, so make sure you are ready to run around the grid looking for meshy goodness, and in case you are wondering what else is available on the hunt rememnber to check out my fellow bloggers from The Ego Co.
