Confort in solitude – Ramblings about Landscaping and Decor and creating your own space

Standard

I don´t often write landscaping blog posts, not only are they a lot of work but Pinterest also keeps me pretty busy to allow regular blog posts, nevermind long babbling ones, of course i don´t claim to be any expert, but i do love landscaping and decorating in general, and that is probably the second thing that consumes most of my inworld time, the first one being standing afk at events in ridiculous outfits.

Culprit – Victorian Gazebo (available at this month´s edition of  FaMESHed and one of my favourite furniture shops, with amazing LI on all the items and some of the best texturing and use of colour i´ve seen)

Studio Skye – Skye River Bank Building Set ( love this set and is perfect for so many things from the simple use of the premade shapes that come in it to breaking down all individual pieces and resizing them to fit your terrain better, this one along with their beach set and a few other pieces by other creators is what i use to do basically every landscaping, be it in a forest ground, an actual stream or simply around sim edges, only two things i wish i had with it is a fading transparency option for the water prim, so i could do a smoother transition when my streams meets linden water, i used several smaller pieces with different levels of transparency for that, and the basic shading and texture maps, at least an outline of the rock/grass areas so i could customize the textures to my sim ground. But hey you can´t have it all. This set is still a must have especially if you use it in creative ways.)

Botanical – Sculpted Linden Trees (I love these, because i love things that make my life easier, and when something is well done and you suddenly get an update making it ever better, i´m in heaven. They are controlled by HUD to every imaginable seasonal state, and the new update makes them mod also, which for me is always the height of my Landscaping needs, and also allows me to do a little one of my tricks, also these are the one item i never kill script from, because seriously a whole sim of them sees no performance issues, and i´m constantly looking at script time.)

KIDD Grass Garden – Meadow Wild Flowers Wild Hedgrow ( i really love these and bought a bunch of packs to scatter around they look lovely around houses, along paths and riverbanks due to the long shape  i just wish they where mod cause then they would be perfect for flower boxes also with some resizing) Pampas Grass ( i bought recently a huge pack of these to put around the sim edges, they are menu controlled  and include several texture options, making them perfect to lay around beach edges and even river edges, and they come with the option of killing scripts)

 

Whenever someone asks me about how should i get started with my parcel/sim i always say, start with the bigger pieces and then scale down, that would mean you star with buildings, making sure if they have rezz boxes that you keep the boxes out so you can do slight adjustments if necessary, terrain height is important and might be changed to fit step 3.

My second thing to do is to figure out paths ( this for me is one of the most tedious things to do to be honest) where do you want people to walk to? Where do you want to walk too? simple paths along buildings and sorting corners take time and patience and are also deeply connected to step 3 which is terrain, are you using sl land alone? Can you use mesh pieces to make it 100% times better? Do you have access to terraforming? there are so many alternatives these days to regular LL terrain, let´s be honest the textures on them are of ridiculous poor quality, and with the offer of so many more textures on the marketplace and inworld, you can change them to fit any theme you like.

I personally love mesh pieces that give a terrain the realistic bumps it should have and i´m addicted to rocks, since i first came to sl, people in sl do not use enough rocks, and creators do not make enough rock formations. Rocks can also help a lot on merging step 2 with step 3, so that all your paths are accessible where you want them to be actual paths or branching out into more private areas.

Next after paths and buildings and basic terrain shapes are done we start landscaping with actual trees and bushes, remember again to always start from bigger to smaller adding really big trees to more open areas surrounding buildings with them using tress as a natural privacy screen, and breaking down slowly a big area into small intimate spaces.

By the way i mentioned a trick above, whilst crediting the Botanical Linden trees, a way to give your setting a more immersive look be it forest floor/town square or simply paths is to have a few leaves on the ground, it makes the space more full and realistic for me, especially when the leaves match the trees above our heads, what i usually do if the trees i´m using are copy ad mod, is to take one of the leaves prims flatten it down, resize, and then copy a few about the edges, with different changes to transparency and slight tinting, this can make wonders to an area.

Some people do not enjoy busy, crowed looks, and yet others like Neva Crystall simply make it into their trademark look i myself like to feel a place is being lived in and used, although when people are not around it does get a little of that abandoned vibe, like suddenly all the people ran away due to some mysterious catastrophe, so think about that when designing a space, animals and even funny bots can bring a place to life, along with balanced sound effects which a lot of people forget to  add to their sims, the singing birds, the flying gulls, the water fountain quietly splashing, and the dripping of water from a hole in the roof, random crowd buzzing sounds in an environment that should be busy with people or also random mechanical sounds that seem to come from far away, can do wonders to any space.

Ages ago when me and bf where working on our now gone space station we used to have sounds everywhere, from speakers making randomized announcements, to machinery working on background to people talking, this contributes so much to full immersion and is so often forgotten.

Another thing you might notice about decorating especially when you have mod and copy items and some knowledge of how simple building is done, is that you can basically tear apart every item and reuse it in a different way, i´m kinda like that which makes me a creators nightmare customer, i will take your item and break it and use in every imaginable way that i can, and the more versatility creators give me the more i love them.

My biggest advise when decorating any space is always use it, walk along those paths, sit on every chair, cam around every little pixel, go up walls, walk into the water, and i always do this myself because it has to be a usable space, your avatar has to be able to go up stairs, walk up a wall to enter a meadow, stroll along a beach and have a way to go back on the road, walk up to objects to use them, take your time to actually enjoy and use the spaces you create so that others can do it also.

Lighting, take your time to adjust your lighting, what i usually do is go to Develop/Render Metadata/Lights, this will show you all your light sources, that you can then adjust to the areas as you wish, i tend to keep it minimal myself, and prefer Lights with timers that follow the sim night/day cycle. And speaking of day cycles, pick a good windlight for your sim, either make your own or download one of the many available ones out there, make your place/parcel stand out, that can be set in region easily, and i usually use the sim controlled windlights when walking about, which means i will have them changed according to your picks.

Keep your sim/parcel resources in check a sim can be beautiful but if you are constantly crashy and laggy in it what use is there to beauty that can´t be admired? Keep some spare prims for silly stuff, Land Impact changed a lot over the last year. Smart relinking of mesh objects and even regular prims can have amazing results on LI in your sim/parcel, try it out (with copy/mod stuff at least) and experiment see how small meshes with under one LI can do wonders in prim saving when linked. Play with your objects, remember they are yours to torture and mess with, I´ve found over the course of my SL years you learn the best things when tearing stuff apart.

I guess this is it my first actual piece of advise in actual Landscaping, or maybe just a silly tl. dr. rant, like i said i am no expert, and rarely believe in rules (they are there after all to be broken), there are of course no rules at all in enjoying your SL, we each do it on our own way and time.

Do you have little tricks and tips on decorating and landscaping? Share it with me i would love to learn them.

That´s all for today folks, have a lovely weekend and i´ll see you all soon. Just remember this as one last advise, whatever you do  always remember to enjoy your space, it is after all why it´s there, to be enjoyed, and don´t forget to share it with others.

Tell me a story

Standard

I´ve been busy, busy so this was a really an unplanned blog post, a lot is happening in SL and i´m trying to keep my head up and updated with everything, between pinning events, regular blogging and sim revamp for spring, i´ve been super busy.

But i had a little time to actually take some pictures, not planned ones but more accidental since i didn´t actually use any poses for them, and didn´t really think about look. I´ve been slowly decorating the sim for spring and summer, and this is my small bookstore with a reading corner, so i need more book things cause as you can see you can still see bits of wall in there.

Another thing that has kept me busy has been my pinterest account, which suffered some changes today as I added two new boards, one called  Store Sales, One time Events, Hunts and Contests, with posters containing the info about them, and another called Group Gifts, these will be kept on top on the boards along with my inspirational seasonal one Spring Fever, where i pin new releases and blog posts from other bloggers or flickr users.

Btw speaking of flickr and pinning i´ve been trying to pin as much as possible but sometimes the Flickr account settings don´t allow me to do so, so if you are a creator and wish to be pinned check your preferences i would rather link directly to your account then add my own pins, because credit where it´s due, i´m just a silly collector whilst others do the amazing work.

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

Quiet as a dormouse

Standard

Indeed i am, and almost asleep has the little one in Alice in Wonderland, But this little dormouse, yes i´m quite small in general with my SL height to match my RL and i´m always sleepy due to insomnia, i´ve also been sick which is delaying my other big project. This being part one of it.

When i saw the preview on flickr of this two HANDverk sets, one with the furniture and one with the food, i knew i had to have them, first i love SL food and second i love Alice in Wonderland, so my idea was to get five different looks inspired on the five different characters in this crazy tea party.

And my first pick is was the little sleepy dormouse, for which i had to watch a crazy amount of youtube videos with adorable little dormouses snoring and being overall adorable, oh the sacrifices i will do for reasearch, to make my blog posts accurate.

So i decide i was going for cute, and basically it involved my favourite colour which is purple and a little bit of pink, with some new earmuffs, owl themed, my favourite of all themes as usual, (this little dormouse laughs in the face of danger, by sporting adorable owl earmuffs). I also added a little sparkle with my silver glitter in a tiny jar, another one of my favourites from The Arcade, these super cute and funny necklaces by PIDIDDLE, the sweater i got from Beetlebones at one of the best Hunts on the grid that came back again this year, The with Love Hunt (remind me please to finish it).

Something else that is new currently are these gorgeous Sugarskull from lassitude&ennui available only at Unhinged, a shop that just turned 7 years old and already inspired a blogger challenge about the oldest, newest and most favourite item from there, I´m gonna classify these boots as the newest i have from there, and bring out the oldest and the favourite later.

Another thing i have to mention is the pose i´m using on this first picture, It´s from aDORKable and the first one of a set of 25 poses left daily at the shop as a gift, last year i missed them all, but bougth the full pack after Xmas, and since i am horrible at reminding myself of Advent Calendars in SL, i´ll probably ended up missing a few more this year, hopefully they will be available after the season is done.

That´s all for today folks, i´ll catch all later, in the meanwhile you can see me nod off and murmur something about treacle.

ETA: I almost forgot i dressed up as a  Sky Huntress over at the Hottie Cooterati blog the other day for those who might have missed it.

It´s colder by the sea

Standard

Indeed it is colder, after hardly any Fall at all, winter came in with full force, and even if i don´t share much about rl i do indeed live by the sea, not in such a tiny small house of course, i don´t think this one would survive one stormy nite around these parts. Thankfully in SL nothing get´s blown out by storms, unless you really want to, and have the script for it, even today as i type it´s another one of those days, a gray, windy, rainy one, where it´s never really enough day light to make you feel like the sun came up.

The best thing to do on days like these is to simply stay in, with a warm cup of tea (no milk, and 3 sugars please), with a blanket over your legs and a cat on your lap, whilst you happily shop in Sl, sadly i don´t get to do that today, I hope some of you do tho, cause there is nothing better to do on a stormy day.

I have been lacking in blogging this month, and this is why only today i get to show some of FaMESHed goodies, and some of Baffle! sale items, well besides being sick over the past week, I´ve also been busy With Unhinged, just a few days ago i did a blog post on the Official event blog with All merchants Booths for Unhinged, a blog post that already needs updating since creators have been adding stuff to the Booths, I´ve also been trying to support all live djs that have been busting their asses, by keeping the event going.

I promise soon to bring you guys some Unhinged goodies in the meanwhile you can follow the amazing work done by my fellow bloggers by checking the Official flickr group. I can´t say how amazed i am at all the talent i´ve seen latelly, I had never been involved in the organization of an event before, and i feel so proud of all the bloggers who signed up to help and those that didn´t sign up also, seriously guys you all deserve my respect.

Until tomorrow everyone and don´t let the stormy weather affect your mood.

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.

Brains…

Standard

Is what will be happening at [NN] City today  a new kind of hunt will have you running for the hills, or run down the hills shooting at zombies rather.

This is such a new and funny concept for a hunt, the idea is to shoot zombies and get a score as high as possible, and also avoid zombie bites, because those will lower your overall score, all you have to do is tp in grab a Body Count HUD and a free gun that comes with it, then at the special events vendors you can buy the hunt prizes with your score point.

From the hunt i bring you one of the shops offering prizes for points, which is Discord Designs the two hairstyles here will be available to trade in for points, so time to start shooting zombies.

Also something else i grabbed this week was another dollarbie from The Plastik, every now and then we get this super cool gift and it´s where i grabbed the tops i´m wearing, in the meanwhile for another event that i have never blogged which is Stumblebum. Everyone have a good weekend and good hunting.

ETA: The event starts today and will last all weekend until the 25th.

Bikinis are optional

Standard

Yes they are and although i prefer them in RL, in SL i always go for a one piece swimsuit, to me it has a way more classic feel, and a one piece is what i´m wearing today, this one is an old model from Zaara, I´ll probably put on an actual bikini at some point during this summer, I have promised myself i would try at least one mesh bikini.

Even if the swimsuit is not a new model, the hair i´m wearing is, i absolutely love it, and i missed Maitreya hair releases, also new is my new beach bag, that inspired the whole look of the pics, and it was a group gift from 22769, I love the fact it´s funny and i´m constantly amazed, on the improvement of their mesh work, from the rolled up newspaper to the blue sandals their works gets better and better with each new release, hunt prize or group gift.

To be honest i don´t know how Manuel and Paco manage to constantly be involved in so many events, both female and male, wich is admirable, while at the same time keep up a such a warm, cheerful attitude to everything, and i advise you all to read a bit more about these two amazing creators here, on Geanna´s blog here.

I also wanted to show of some of the poses available at Fluid, I already blogged the event on Friday when it opened, It´s another  The Ego Co. organized event, and totally dedicated to poses and props with a two week rotation between new releases, and i have to tell you i hope i get time to blog as much of them as possible, because props in it are incredibly good and refreshing.

Before i go i would like to leave here a big thank you to Gogo for the link back on here blog post Sunny, I´m still very new at blogging and when i saw she had mentioned my name i felt extremely happy and at the same time a bit embarrassed, since i´m not used to this sort of attention, but i´m incredibly honoured for the attention of one of Sl´s best blogs, when it comes not only to fashion but also photography, Thank you very much Gogo.

Wet grass

Standard

Tonite I sit on wet grass, wet grass due to Fluid, another The Ego Co. event, the organizer of the widely popular Mesh Around Hunt that ends today. And while we lament the end of this amazing hunt we celebrate the start of a new event, and  a longer lasting one, with Fluid every 2 weeks we have a new round of designers with new exclusive items, all related to posing and props today i picked this lovely table from flowey, and i also wore a few things from other events.

sl is buzzing with events atm a lot of them starting today, first Fluid that you can find here, besides Fluid we had the return of one of my all time favorite events, Fifty Linden Friday, in the meanwhile i also received the first items from My Second Box, which is an awesome new concept, well worth the 300L you pay to join the group.

And last but not least still going on is  CHIC²CHIC Management  second anniversary event, also as you might have  seen my last post Oopskate is later on tonite at 10pm SL time and you can read all about it here.

Is that enough events for you guys? Cause i might have left a few out, I´ll just sit and relax in the grass for now, thank you.
