Short and Sweet
Ok so first off that title is not the post size, because by now you know me enough to know that’s virtually impossible :P.
So first off before we do into my post, I wanted to share my Genius!, ok usually my Genius is Mel, but today it’s actually my as in me.
So I’m doing that lay in bed trying to sleep, experiencing insane mind overload thing, you know it, I’m sure many of you experience it, so I’m doing the jump from thought to thought thing, you know how at the end you have no idea how you got there and work backwards and go ‘ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh so that’s how’.
So I was thinking about work stuff, groups, SoM’s other tools etc, and then somehow my mind got to a discussion I had with Mel a few days ago about inventory. Wait I’m rambling and you want to see the pretties I’m sure, so I will do them first and share my genius at the end.
So lately I have been all over the place in order of appearance,sometimes things are waiting and sometimes new , and they get all squished up together.
Firstly the New would be the Pristine dress, can we all say ‘Ooooooooooh Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah ” this dress has purity gone wild written all over it, ok not really written but it is just so the naughty virgin has come out to play. This dress is a delight, the pure white is as the name suggests Pristine, the mini ruffle skirt and off the shoulders coquettish like straps just make you want find all sorts of wiggling animations, ok maybe thats just me.
There is definitely not much in length to this delight, but the panties underneath more than make up for it, that’s if you wear them of course -Â the design is created to give both options, don’t you just love versatility – they have beautiful sheer and not sheer features to the knickers style shape, they are adorable, and the little bows that are in keeping with the one featured on the chest of the dress.
Then moving down the legs to the adorable over the knee socks and more bows. This set is just magnificent, I am loving white allot at the moment. I think that comes from the amount of incredible skins and stunning make ups out at the moment, the sharp contrast of make up against white clothing is just fun.
Speaking of incredible skins, I read that there were FREE Natural Prim Lashes and Eyes to be had at La Sylphide, I don’t actually ‘need’ either one, but I couldn’t resist as I love Stephanie’s work. So off I went and it was more a reminder because I was already in a La Sylphide Skin ready to shoot the dress, when I remembered the eyes and lashes, so there I was landing in the store, looked at the lucky chair – can you blame me – and saw it was an F , so Im like darnit wish Fia was on, one minute till change and so I wondered over to the eyes and lashes and was about to leave, when lo and behold it was an S , seriously that chair loves me â™¥ and I love it back.
So when I got back home, the Erin Party Girl tan Skin ended up being todays Make Up instead, seriously if you don’t already have Erin at all, this is the perfect way to test it out full time, go to the main store, sort out inventory or chat in IM , whatever you need to do, then win that exclusive to the chair skin and wear it for a day or so, if you don’t get lots of compliments I would be surprised, and its a great way to know completely that you do want a change of skin, make sure you grab all the Demos while you are there too, you can even try those on while you wait.
I’m a dork because after all that you can’t really see the eyes or the natural lashes, but you will be able to when you get them for yourself :P.
When I was scrolling through inventory looking for hair, this one just jumped out at me as very fitting for the look I was going for. It’s called Dirrty Girl and is sexxxxxy for sure. I love this white blonde colour called Cloud , its stunning, and again my love of the white is sated.
What I am really loving in this hair style though is the ends of the hair, they look wet, no really they do. Or at least producted lol, I don’t know what it is really , but I just really like the length and the ends allot.
For some older, and very patient waiting for me to show them items. The Technomancer Neko Collar is definitely some futuristic fun, this collar also comes in a slave version, and it’s equally as cute, I was thinking though instead of a kneeling girl as the symbol, maybe a handbag and some shoes, for those of us that are slaves to shopping :P.
There are 4 colour change settings , that you use in chat channel, such as /4 light1 red and it will change part of the collar. Hard to really show properly in a picture the collars front hanging pendant and the main part of the collar itself all move under the glass covering, creating a very hi tech effect. Also if you can see glow it has a soft glow to it also, its really very well developed and I love the back parts , I am scared of them, because I don’t know what they do 😛 , but I do love them lol.
The boots are the Harajuku Stomp boots, a great array of colours to choose from in these splendidly buckled boots. The very raised platform base is super cute, I can imagine running from cyborg police in these , with toxic rain puddles splashing as I do – ok maybe too far, because now Im worried that those splashes will hurt. All the wonderful straps and buckles though distract my silly, and back to the colours, now that there are so many to chose from, you have your cute adorable punked out options in the pastely light colours, or your dark moody looks in the original and still my favs.
The ring I am wearing, is also scripted for change, the Tahitian Pearl Ring has beautifully placed diamonds on the carved band and a texture change pearl in the centre, this is click on and drop down scripted, so makes it very easy for you – don’t forget though if you are in a no script zone, this might not work so be sure of where you are before you panic.

Ok back to my genius, so I was talking to Mel about inventory , and I realised through experience with customers etc, that many don’t realise that if an item is no transfer in a box/bag, that actually means unlimited unpacks, many of you do know this I understand that, but many also don’t. I have had customers freak out because they ruined something in edit, and I have asked them do they still have the bag/box and explained to just unpack.
So that got me to thinking how in reality, if an item doesn’t need modding, you could in fact keep all boxes/bags and actually unpack fresh each time, then delete when you take off, clearing up some very valuable space in your inventory. This then got on to the impracticality of that , when wanting to wear various pieces from one outfit with another etc, and true enough too, but we all have some sets that we wear as is. So I was thinking ok thats good and bad, and useful maybe for some to consider.
But that was only what got me to this brainwave, and if anyone has ever suggested this in the past I wish I had seen it. Ok so I was thinking about boxes/bags from then , and we just recently re-bagged all of DD, but we don’t allow rezzing – yeah yeah I much prefer customers to not be griefed than to be able to rez, we had days of attacks.
So anyway I was drifting off and I had a thunk, yes one of my thunks that go plunk. I know, and you know that you can unpack old school if its an emergency, you just HAVE to wear the item you just bought, but its boxed/bagged and you cant just wear from the folder, so you do the wear the bag/box and drag from contents to your inventory – remembering of course to make a folder first to drag too.
BUT then you have other issues, in the wearing the box/bag, issue one VANITY, some people do not want to wear a box/bag in public lol, two would be taking off things you have attached to the hand , such as rings, thats not good.
So here is my idea, and I tested it today thanks to the LC win at La Sylphide. Are you ready ?
ATTACH TO HUD ! OMG OMG OMG OMG , if you right click the ba/box and attach to hud centre it clearly shows up, and even better thanks to La Sylphide having a touch to unpack script in hers, all I had to do was clickit and it even made the proper folder, OMG Brilliant right, and then I did it the drag from contents way and that worked too, so now lovely people, you can still unpack a box, no one will be the wiser because they wont see anything , it will all happen on your screen for your eyes onllyyyyyyyyyyy *sings* don’t you just love experiencing how my mind works :P.
