An interesting thought reared it’s head earlier today. The idea of culling your inventory just to make it less of a burden on the asset servers. Now Mel and I discuss this every other day, believe me that is truly how often he picks on me about mine.

Actually that’s not even accurate, it would be every day. Even Whimsy cops it from him, and hers and mine are almost the same in size. Whimsy scared the hell out of me last week, declaring that if it was causing a strain – Mel says that when I log back in after a crash the sim stalls – then eventually her and I wont be able to be on the same sim; at the same time.

Ashia is more brutal with hers, she gets all powered up and starts deleting things left, right and centre, mind you though she freaks me out by not even looking at what she is deleting. Which recently meant she had to buy something she had previously owned.

Luna mentioned in a plurk that came up about it, that she culls hers to less than 30 (I think it was) and that if she doesn’t use it in 6 months it is gone.

I am sorry but NO WAY JOSE! I cannot go that low, never ever ever. Lately I have been going back and forth in my inventory to show older and new items together… as I always say ‘Everything Old is New to Someone”. I have gotten rid of items that are of no use to me at all, I know I have to completely strip down my furniture folder and what not…I did also get rid of over 3000 wigs recently from one designer, just because of all the colour options I wouldn’t wear…but I do have them backed up in boxes ‘just in case’.

I know it is out of hand, and I know I am a horder lol. But my inventory is my timeline here just as much as my blogs are. I have items from every store I have managed – most of those are boxed unless needed – I cannot imagine not being able to reach into it and pull out an item I know would be perfect for a pic, or blog post regardless of its age.

The absolute beauty of NO TRANSFER items is the ability to unpack, wear, and delete…just make very sure you kept the box. No Transfer means COPY, which means UNLIMITED amounts of said item. Example is the gown I unpacked again today to wear, the deep red one, that I modified so you could see my shoes. I have had that archived in the red for probably a year, the black is left out. Now I will delete the folder, because I know I have it safely boxed.

There is so much of that that you can do as a consumer, and so much that can be done to ensure that is easier as a creator. You see many are against boxed items, usually because they want to see what they are getting with an item, and that is fair enough.

But things such as fat packs etc, are better off as seperate boxes, yes you can right click take copy your single vendors and pop them into your fat pack vendor DONE, it is as simple as that. Creators please don’t make your boxes no copy though, when the items inside of it are no transfer, it is a bit dangerous to make the box they travel in different perms.

Anywho, once you unpack and wear, you can delete, just again be sure you have a back up box that actually does contain the items ready for next time. This also applies for high price items, UNLIMITED UNPACKS, if you mod it and mess it up, unpack another one, if you cannot find all the pieces, unpack another one.

If you spend a bit more than you are used to, and you feel that that item is something you would hate to lose, if it didn’t come in a box, then before you do anything else, make a box and drag copies of the items into it, name it exactly as it is on the item folder and save it to a different folder. I know of some people that sink valuables under the house lol.

Anyway enough of all that.

The shoes I have on were created just after the opening of the Footwear Expo, so they are available at the store and the fair, in different colour sets. This set is of course the darker tones that I asked Siddean to release, for those of us who love our ballet shoes with an edgier colour base.

I was also lucky enough to choose the name of them, seeing as Ashia and I are both lovers of our ballet stuffs, I wanted them to be named after her, if Siddean liked the idea… she did, so once they were remade in the darker colours, and ready for release I bought a gift pack for Ashia, and lol she didn’t believe they were named that, she thought it was just so she could find them in her inventory that Siddean had edited the folder, and that is why she deserved them.

My first look was inspired by the movies, you know when you see a dancing movie, there is always that teacher/instructor that was a ballerina when she was younger yadda yadda , and she just has such a lovely graceful style about her, well that’s what I was going for with this look.

Modified the skirt on the second, so that you could see the gorgeous blood red slippers. The gown is beautiful full length, but something like this under is a perfect shoe to dance the night away. The third look could be ‘ More strippers are classically trained than you think ” look, lol but it was just something fabulous fun and silver to wear with the shoes..but if you want to call it that look go right ahead.

The skin is NEW and beautiful, I am not only loving the usual features of Laq skins, but the make ups on the Ania are just a bit different than the usual I believe. Mallory has added an incredible gloss effect to the lips, and the colour combination’s are just perfect. I did notice more colour this time around in the eyes especially, glad to see a beautiful green shadow amongst the pack.

Incredibly lined lids, and a really perfect under brow highlighted shadow look , that is not easy to do with the template the way it is. Mallory does her make up like someone who knows and spends time doing their own. There are such little hints at colour and shading, that can really make your eyes stand out, and it takes skill to do that.

Ania is again a more mature version of the Glow skins, sometimes depending on shape others in the range tend to side with a more youthful exuberance, so if that has been a concern to you in the past, then you should check out Ania for sure.

All the hair in the post, old and new is from Exile. All those lovely curls framing the face are such fun, and I really like that tousled lived in look for hair, cannot be too perfect all the time, can we.
