The Pin Critters

Standard

Note: I am no longer pinning for the Fantasy Faire Pinterest pinboards.

As you all know by now Fantasy Faire has it´s own Official Pinterest account and as you can read here on their blog I´m helping out, and tis is the huge surprise i had for you guys, and the reason you saw all these pinning critters on my flickr over the past week.

As you all may know Pinterest as become a huge part of my SL life in the last few months, and when i started using it to cover events for my personal shopping sprees, people started joining in and it sort of took a life of it´s own, I do my best to keep on top of it all, and sorry if i´m sometimes a little late but trust me if there where more hours in the day i would gladly spend them pinning.

Sothis is how Fantasy Fair Pinning will work, there are several boards on their page: One for Official announcements, one for random previews of the creators work before the Faire opens, one for each sim that will in time have available all vendor pics for that sim participants, for easy browsing and location of SLurls.

Like you all know every year a big and pretty amazing list of bloggers helps promote the event,  and their blog posts will also be featured, linking to their blogs and again not only showing the amazing items that will be available but also the imaginative combinations and ways in which they can be used in your daily SL.

Either if you´re a hardcore roleplayer or just fancy a bit of a more dramatic change.

Another board is the Faire fun where you will see not only the more humourous side of backstage pranks, but also parties, events and happenings, something that always made me smile about the Faire is te way those involved really enjoy it, and that just shows, not only on the backstage group but also on a daily basis tru the Faire´s duration.

So i leave you all with the magic creatures tat will be do the pinning of the Faire, it was fun revisiting some of my bought items from last year, and some of my favourite shops for fantasy wear, as well as dusting of my petites for some blogging, see you all soon and let Fantasy ride your thoughts for the next few weeks as we all enjoy what SL is about, Imagination.

What is your beauty base zero?

Standard

That was the question asked By Portia Pexington in this interesting challenge.

I realized i didn´t really have one well not an actually saved one ready to wear, since the option of outfits became available i usually keep two outfits only in my inventory, one is made of a full body alpha and nothing else, i call it my event suit, it allows me to visit events and cut down on lag, I´ve considered making another one tho, since an alpha makes it hard to try demos, so i´ll probably just make a new event outfit soon that consists of a simple all black skin.

My second outfit is usually a simple casual look i probably blogged at some point and is there for emergencies going out occasions, like if i suddenly need to pop out of my platform and i just trow it on, it´s usually like i said casual and seasonal, so i don´t feel so awkward and out of place, but that usually fails me miserably, since i change skins often for the blog, when i put on the outfit the feet and hands are never matching.

But tbh i rarely wear this outfit, i´ll proudly walk around the grid looking like a hot mess most of my time, which usually means bald, with my AO of, at least 3/4 different mesh pieces and the wrong alpha layers on for them and unmatching feet and hands, i sometimes joke i must be somewhere on some The Fugly of SL website of Flickr group somewhere.

But i´m glad i stumbled upon this challenge since it made me set up this simple look i can wear everywhere and is now saved in my outfit folder, ready for a blog post when i feature my regular everyday skin.

Shape: mine 

I´ve had this shape for 2 years now, a huge difference from my previous one, two years ago i lowered my avatar closer to my RL height, something that makes most avatars sorta of tower over me, since that huge change two years ago i haven´t touched the face at all or the body much, only changes i do remember doing, was recently to resize my ears making them bigger, to fit some hair styles.

Things like general body i mess with all the time to fit mesh clothes, but i keep several copies of my basic shape in different places of my inventory and with different names due to two months ago SL simply deleting one versions of this shape.

Skin: Mynerva  –  Milena

I´ve used Mynerva skins for my regular skin for about 3 years now, and didn´t even think twice when Milena came out, it fits my shape, which is something i never change, and i simply love it´s details and mostly the freckles, i do sometimes add on an extra freckle layer, but not all the time, mostly for more natural and casual looking blog posts.

Brows: Mynerva  –  Milena Brow Shape/Milena Brows Red 3

I always keep my brow shap constant, but having the Eyebrows in a seperate layer makes me forget them sometimes, which can be the ocasional pain of taking a bunch of pics and finally loose that nagging feeling something is wrong with them, when you realize you forgot to wear your eyebrows

Eyes: Izzie’s – Natural Mesh Eyes 

I sometimes try diferent eyes but these brown ones have been my favourites for over a year  now i love my brown Izzie´s.

Eyelashes: Maxi Gossamer - Eyelashes – Groomed

I quite these and i do tend to be lazy and also having a hard time fitting most lashes to my eyes, but i would love to experiment, so if you know more eyelashes out there and worth trying out let me know, i so wanna play more with close-ups.

Hair: [ monso ]  - My Hair – Yoon/ Cookie Pack

I usually go for short haircuts for my day to day preference, this one is one of my all time favourites, even if it´s not my favourite of all times colour i love how it fits my face and overall cuteness.

Feet: [Gos] Boutique -  Mesh Feet (New Release)

These are new, tho i bought them over weekend and haven´t managed to take them off yet, cause they´re pretty  and i like them, lol i know it´s my new favourite toy, and after filling out a request on teh website for my regular skin to be added to the database, this morning i recieve a personal IM informing me it had just been added, talk about good personalized costumer support there. I can´t now wait to try the matching when i get home later.

Sweater: Fashionz! – Long Sleeve A01 Shirt
Bermudas: L.Fauna - Bermuda

Money for nothing

Standard

It´s what scammers want, and today me and many others stumbled into one, let me tell this story from the start, i woke up this morning to a wave of emails, as i got to the kitchen and my phone caught the wi-fi signal, the bips would not end, still kinda of blurry-eyed and dazed from sleep i see a flood of emails in my inbox, flickr messages, SLU pms a lot more than the usual activity.

My friends had also been on fire on Skype, and as soon as i managed to sit down and actually look at the content, my eyes rolled, apparently someone with a Deviant Art account had stolen pictures from Flickr from a lot of SL bloggers and filled a gallery with them, including two pictures of mine, the ones you can see on the pictures i´m holding, between those who had their pics stolen are: my dear friend Sonya from Astalianda,  and a lot of pictures from Strawberry Singh, Gogo from Juicy Bomb and Whiskey Monday from Whiskey Shots only to mention a few, but the worse is yet to come not only was this DA account who is also a SL resident by the name of bekidarling was passing other residents pictures as her own she was also trying to sell prints of them on Deviant Art, trying to make money of other people’s work, she was also claiming she was the creator of everything in the picture.

She also claimed the credits for every item in those pics, undermining and insulting every creator showcased in them and all the hours of hard work that go into building in SL.

When i got to work and finally could look at her page all the pictures where already taken down by her, after the massive amount of comments and links to the originals, today i learned a big lesson, don´t mess with the SL community, if we find you are stealing from any of us, be it a blogger or a creator, we will talk about it, on plurk, on forums, by email, by skype, we have each other´s backs.

A big hug and thank you for all of those who sent me a message, for all of those who spread the word, for all of those who will not let pass when someone´s hard work and time is stolen by scammers, looking for a quick buck, today i mostly wanna say thank you SL and thank you my friends.

I would also like to send a huge hug to all my blogger friends who had their work stolen, worth hours and hours spent showing the very best of SL, most as hobbie done by love to the platform and the community itself.

Dreamboat

Standard

Sometimes you keep something in your inventory waiting for it to come out, be it a prop a dress a piece of jewelry (i have a pair of earings from La Gyo waiting in a folder since the EPOCH legend event to be blogged), sometimes is time that is to blame, sometimes is the perfect look, sometimes is that it´s not right feeling you get after you did the pictures even, so many reasons for it to happen, and sometimes is the reason you don´t blog a shop.

During Pose Fair i was so thinking, every one and their mother will blog this boat from Baffle!, it comes with asortement of poses for pics, but i wanted to use it differently, so i picked my some  Long Awkward Pose poses to go with it, i tend to do be silly like that and use things way out of their intentional purpose, i did like the results tho, and the mood of the pictures.

I´ve also been enjoying CHIC², CHIC Management´s second anniversary event because of the new shops i´m finding there or that i´m having time to blog shops i already knew, but never end up blogging. One of those shops is tomoto, which i had never heard of before, and I really  liked how this dress seemed floaty and dreamy.

I also had finally the time to visit the Bombi event a very small but filled with quality even that lasts until the 15th, and in their wall of lucky boards i won this pretty Mother Goose skin, honestly is well worth checking this event out, some great stores there, not many my great stores, a wall filled with easy to win lucky boards, that give you a taste of the event´s participants quality.

Sorry for the late post today that was mostly due to RL busy time, but have fun over the weekend people.
