Warning May contain Mesh

At the moment, with the new and oh so delightful Mesh hitting the grid, there really needs to be more customer awareness happening. Read up on it, there is much on the wiki, check out blogs by people that provide info on the subject…and read information provided by the creators when supplied. Have an up to date viewer for one thing, and especially do not try and express your distaste for it, by using other viewers as the reason. Did you know that legally not one store has to provide customer service to you at all if you use a Third Party Viewer? Linden Labs themselves wont, so it is pretty much the kindness of creators that they have been so willing to do so in the past.

The worst part is that there are thousands out there that WANT to use the latest Mesh viewers and just can’t, so being rude and making big dramatic stances based on your inability to accept change is kind of sucky. My reason for this mini rant, is that I have seen some insane customer comments come up in the past week that have been a bit crazy. They are pure and simply people thinking they know better, and demanding more. I am so grateful I can use a Mesh Viewer, I am also grateful that stores do provide customer service for TPV’s because the LL viewer doesn’t stabilise for me right now. Yes it is going to be awful if not using one to see people running around with big blocks on instead of perfectly shaped creations. But I also remember when Sculpts came it was big spheres unrezzing for thousands too. I remember not being able to look at girls wearing sculpted hair because it looked like their brains were seeping out their eye sockets.

I still for the life of me cannot understand peoples dislike for V2 which is now V3. Yes it is different, a few buttons look different, but it is mostly the same, and nearly all the viewer creators have made such headway in trying to make it as similar to the old as they can. About the only thing that is still for many a major hassle is how notices come, and how items and IMs are shown. But that is more to do with retraining yourself to look down to the right not up to the right than anything else. You also need to train yourself to look down there more often…it is not so obvious when you get an IM, but it does still make a noise and there is an icon there with a balloon on it if there is an unread IM. Anyway, try it for more than five minutes…nearly everyone I ever hear that says they wont, has never used it since it was released, and/or wont give it more than five minutes. The benefits to your SL far outweigh the negatives, and if you CAN use it,  then you kind of owe it to those that can’t to stop being sucky lol.

Now about these boots. Yes they are the NEW MESH boots from LeLutka, and they are magnificent. For one thing, the detailing is fantastic, and all the added features make them such an incredible bargain. Not only do you get the boot in whichever colour or colours you choose, but also the HUD that allows for changes to the laces, rivets and soles. With some of the colours the change in accents is incredible. The boots are three prims, they are not rigged to the skeleton so they can be resized using the HUD also. It is only rigged items in Mesh that are unable to be resized, because they are technically locked to the joints. So the work that is able to be achieved on them is awesome, and in many cases you are going to see work you wouldn’t have ever seen if we only had sculpts, because the creator either wouldn’t do that kind of intense detailing, or it just was not within the realms of prim limits etc. Also texturing on Mesh is so much easier than Sculpts so the newness is going to keep on getting even better.

The Ren boots have a mix of looks. First off I looked at them as Victorian riding boots, then they had a real combat kind of thing going on – I LOVE THE OLIVE – all in all they are so versatile to wear. First off I had to go with that first thought, the Victorian look, so I pulled apart a gown from LeLutka – I rezzed the skirt then in edit mode I checked Edit Linked Parts and clicked all the pieces at the front. Once they were all selected I went to build menu and unlinked. Then once unlinked I selected them again and deleted. Taking the skirt back I wear it and voila a short fronted gown. The bolero is from Verve which is previously Swansong, so any type of shrug/bolero could look very cool. Then to finish it all off I wore the collar that you didn’t get a proper look at the other day from Royal Blue.

The second look combines one of the very cool Zaara denim skirts, with the linen shirt from COCO, this shirt comes in other colours, but I loved the white and very crinkly look of it. The combat look didn’t get as military as I would have liked, but combining the RB Tank from Maitreya and the delish leather cap with the SoHo shorts and Ren boots was enough for me to want to stay that way for the day.

I am wearing the NEW Curio skin Jewel. Looks like Curio has added new tones to her selection. I am wearing the honey tone, which comes in the gold tones collection. The other tones are rose tones, so make sure you try all the new tones available. The make ups as usual are just beautiful and as usual come in the two of each make up choice we are used to.

I find you Fascinating

Babyback Bitch

Last night Whimsy and I went to Hogwarts, actually we went all over the place, but decided to stop in on the marketplace that has all of SL a quiver. Anya OhMai has the most adorable Pygmy Puff collectible Gacha items there, I didn’t include mine in the pic, because I am scared they are like gremlins and I haven’t read the rules yet.
While we were there, we ran into a few people, one of which was Mystic, who also has a blog in which you can read more about joining the school if that is your thing. She was really lovely to talk to *waves* and to her friend with the evil like Whimsy red hair lol.

If you do go visit prepare to have all your maternal instincts punch you repeatedly while you are there, seriously children overload and sooooo adorable in their little uniforms and stuff. I don’t know enough about the books to RP properly and I would want to be a teacher or something, but I would be so hopeless and feed them all candy all day. Before that or after that, I think before, we went to see Maxwell Grafs new retail adventure called Bitch. His release of 4 Mesh Handbags shown larger than life in the showroom. You may know his work from Rustica, well he has expanded his range  to smaller items such as  accessories and clothing, and the bags are lovely. I just had to have the houndstooth print.

I love that Marni is back to creating for Royal Blue, she is able to add just the right amount of quirky to a look. The outfit pieces I am wearing today are from her, some new, some old and some I have been waiting for for over two years to be finally finished. The waiting was for the stockings. Originally they didn’t come with the boyshorties, but now that they do they are even more to love. So all one piece, and there are the polka dot ones or plain…so sexy. The new is not visible, but if you go to her store you will find these nifty shirt collars with ribbon bows to wear as an accessory, also very ooh la la.

The whole look is perfect for the Project Themeory item from MOOD of the Duchess Fascinator. Now these things are hard to find in SL, Newdoll and I went searching weeks ago. Not just that they aren’t easy to find, but good ones are rare and this one is a GREAT one. MOOD has been pushing herself lately, and it really has shown the public what she can do, and how her skills have grown. Jewelry not being the only Mood MOOD can be in. So once Royal Blue unpacks hers and MOOD has hers, we will be off to the races in style. Melbourne Cup is only weeks away people.

Alpha Tutorial – Bake on Mesh options

Edit: I will add to this soon but this will work for Bake on Mesh now that it is live in SL

 

Hi, Tutorial time here, and even though I did this once a long time ago now for a magazine; I realised it never actually made it to my blog. Now with Mesh being a huge addition to the grid, one thing that is going to come into play a lot more often are alpha layers. I have already noticed that some are not exactly fitted to the exact shape of the mesh, which is not really surprising. So I have taken the time to show you how you can make your own, and then possibly open up the possibilities of more clothing for yourself… because you will know that if a demo doesn’t fit exactly, but you can make your own alpha, you can whip one up first, try the demo again and VOILA a 10L upload could make you incredibly happy.

First thing to do is to get the avatar templates that are used for the real avatar body. They are located HERE , the better option are the Chip Midnight ones as they have clearer detail.

The first thing you do is open up the upper and lower body templates in your PS or Gimp program. Then save the upper and lower as as jpeg,png or targa, it doesn’t matter which, and it will not change the template.
Upper Example
Lower Example
Once you have done that bring both into SL.

Once you have them uploaded make a new folder in your clothing or body parts folder. Name it Template Layers. Then right click inside of it and choose New Clothes > New Shirt , then New Clothes > New Pants and then wear them so you look like you are wearing a white catsuit.

Go into edit on the pants layer, and drag the template texture you uploaded to the texture panel on the pants, and save. Then do the same to the shirt layer. Once you have saved both you will see that every designer you have ever bought an item from deserves a round of applause, because this thing is seriously insane to work on.

Template Catsuit

Now if you put back on the alpha layer that you got with your demo you can see exactly where on the template it goes.
Store Alpha

Then once that rezzes, you can wear the mesh and see where the alpha needs to be for you.

Tube On

Now go back to your PS or Gimp and get the upper clothing layer template. You can turn off every layer that you don’t need, and leave the one that makes the most sense to you. Then the rest of this is going to make more sense to you by how you feel the most comfortable with your tools. Some can use eraser, some just outline and delete, some will be all fancy, but the overall idea is, what you want to be alpha on your body, needs to be alpha on the template. Make sure you also check the back of your body, to see if the mesh is higher or lower than you need.

Back Tube

I used the lasso tool to draw a little bit inside of the line I need, and then cut out the entire portion of the shirt I want alpha, then once I have done front and back I filled the rest with black. Saved as a png and uploaded into SL .

Cutting

Final Cutout

Then in the same folder I made a new alpha mask layer, named it tube top, then wear it, and you will see that you are popping right out of your mesh. Go into edit on the alpha layer and add your new alpha texture.

Popping

editing

Now I am not a professional at this, I will admit it took me three times to get it spot on, the front was too high at first, then the back had to be lowered also. But if this was a gown or something with some serious money behind it, or I just really loved it so much as a top…well 30L to get it to fit is much better than walking away, or worse, spending however many L’s on it and not being able to wear it without changing my shape.

Final

Now the other big advantage to learning this is your older shoes, as well as layer limits that those that refuse to use V2 encounter. If a shoe/boot has an invisi prim attached to the shoe/boot then this wont work, but some shoes/boots had them as separate attachments, so this will. Do not wait around for stores to update, they haven’t up until now, so pretty much given that they are not going to. If you have a pair of boots you love and want to wear with alpha instead of invisiprims then follow the same steps on the legs potion of the templates. Boots are actually much easier as they tend to be really easy to work out where they end. Shoes are harder, as the heel style and other things come into play, but again, if you don’t want to see it, you make it alpha. So it is worth a try.

Another thing is that if you have layer limits, now with mesh, or just because other things you wear use alpha, you can make your own alpha mixes. Some stores are kind enough to include the alpha texture with the purchase, so you can do this, but consider combining boots with corset, or boots with tube top, and voila, only using one layer instead of two.

I hope this helped, and I hope that it saves you some concerns you may have about only being able to change shape with Mesh.

 

In the pics I am using the Full Perms Tube top by Random Crap by Damien Fate/Washu Zebrastrip, you can find so many full perms Mesh items there or on their marketplace page. Demo hoodie available. The secret passage is in the corner of the station between the wall and the train, just walk through the wall and you will find the mesh items, or IM Washu Zebrastripe for help.

OMG The Sitting

Happy Mesh Day

Honestly since I have been lucky enough to have some sneak peaks at Mesh prior to today, the one thing that stood out the most was the bending knees, and the dresses that fold with your body. Since 2007 and sculpts being used more and more, as much as they have always been awesome, one thing started changing, we stopped sitting and everyone was always standing.
When it was just prim skirts with flexi they created the easy sitting scripts, that were more work than helpful to be honest, but you could never really get those things to do much for sculpts. When pants legs were made more and more by full sculpts also, you would sit and your lower portion would go one way, and your upper would stick out making it look like you had broken yourself in someway.

Mesh has changed all that again, and now without even having to round out any edges I give you SITTING! Also my bottom isn’t all askew and my girly parts aren’t broken either. To really understand how much love you will have for mesh, go try the new Group Gift from SLink – Jeans worn – and see how your legs don’t break from your AO and other such things.

You must have a Mesh Enabled Viewer, and you must be on a Mesh sim – SLink is a mesh sim so try the jeans on there, but be sure to take them off again when TPing away, as all sims will not be full mesh until tomorrow. You need to join the Slink group to get the jeans, but they are a great way to see what all the fuss is about.

This hair had definitely broken through any limits I put on myself regarding flower hair. Always I have been a little eeek about hair with accessories built in, because I like the without option, as well as thinking it can tend to limit the hair wear. But this new Kendal style is just beautiful. The soft locks, the beachy length and soft waves. Then you have the flower not only the ones in the hair, but also the one that is a mouth attachment and totally looks the type you would get in a salad these days, and on top of ALL that, you get a hud that changes the flower and stamen texture into at least a dozen colours…SOOOOOO BEAUTIFUL.

Kendal is by Ploom and the hair coming out of Helyanwe lately is just gorgeous. PLOOM is a magical hairstore for us oldbies, a place where you can feel safe in your purchase, and also know that you will get so much bang for your buck. Especially with the HUD attachment in the hair packs she provides. Not only do you get the choice from the colour packs you choose, but about a bazillion streaks options as well all built in. All of this and only three scripts in the whole hair o/ all win, especially as it is mod, so if you don’t like wearing scripts, you can make a copy, do the colours you want for the day and delete the scripts.

The Kendal hair is a great style to wear with your new Blue Slush outfit, how cute is this Jersey Dress and leggings. So many layers in this pack, and the leggings come in black or white. Then you have with panties or without and OMG the panties are NEON GREEN so you will totally bust anyone perving up there, because no one can resist exclaiming YOUR KNICKERS ARE BRIGHT GREEN!. A great black belt also comes with the set, but I opted for the twin white one from Aoharu, and the adorable lace up boots also from their Anexx store – word on the street is they are having a sale over Aoharu and Anexx way, so you should run over and not miss out – I hope it is still on.

The skin I am wearing is divine. It is the Nina skin from Baiastice and I personally believe that even though I have really liked every skin I have ever worn from there, this one is hands down her best work to date skins wise. There is always a really obvious softness to the skin itself, with glamorous make ups, and always the most beautiful reds. But this one is a lot sharper and very attention grabbing…that and the freckles layers – not shown – different brow options and so on, a skin not to be missed if on the look out. I was equally overjoyed that all the make ups went with all the flower colours in the Kendal hair o/.

There are other styles of Ploom now released and the poses I am using are also Ploom, the pose section is steadily building some great must haves in there.

Bitches be Crazy

Padded1

Padded2

One of the excellent items available in the Platinum Hunt that is still on, is the My Padded Room by aDORKable. I actually watched this become what it is, and the 7 wonderful poses really work well for any kind of photography. The room is modify which really helps with the kind of layout you might want to create. This would also be incredible for machinema as well as photo ops, or seriously you kind of find yourself just in there chillin and wondering ‘what next?”.

I have been tearing around SL this week in the NEW Zaara denim skirts, she also has a great item in the Platinum hunt, the clue is something about sitting on a golden throne, a hint from me…do not spend all your time looking for a throne, just look for something gold. The handpainted denim that Zaara has been producing lately has been great, I especially like that the skirt comes on layers so you can do things like layer them over leggings or whatever. I went with stockings today though, the floral side gartered ones from League, I love these, and the floral print is YUM.

I am also wearing the COCO cuffs, these actually came with one of her sleeveless shirts, and one day I might wear the shirt…but for now it’s all about the cuffs. COCO is also having an insane 75% off SALE, so now is the time to buy it all. The hair I have on is Moss, another of the recent releases from LeLutka, inspired by Kate Moss, and that girl at one time was completely in need of a padded room of her own, but has of late really sorted herself out…YAY.

I feel very tomb raider in this outfit, and at the moment I am reading all of the Foxtrot cartoon strips starting back at 1998 and was laughing myself silly that the youngest boy was horrified at the concept of playing a girl in a video game. Lucky for whoever made that game that all boys hadn’t thought that way, or that franchise would never have gotten as big as it did.

Remember the items at the Platinum Hunt are only 10L each, and for something like My Padded Room you would be CRAZZZZY to miss out.

The owls are not what they seem

PPHunt

When I saw this dress it reminded me of the movies, the ones where the very strong female character would appear in a very asian inspired dress. Often of course not an asian woman, so the effect was always very attention grabbing.

Kunglers always grabs my attention, I really do need to visit that store more often, and for everyone what better time than now with this dress being part of the Platinum hunt. The hair also part of the hunt is from Elikatira, a beautiful head-banded updo, this style can look great for all occasions, even for the office, go you naughty librarian you.

I ran over to Tokidoki the other day with Whimsy, they are having a red and yellow items sale at the moment. If not sure it is still on, then compare the prices of the red or yellow to another colour in the same. I had to do that as it is not really clearly marked what is or isn’t. Anyway I picked up this cute bag, and there were some other bits and pieces I grabbed that are great, I especially love her oversized headbands.

I am using a lovely pose by Geez in this post, Grazia has decided to sell all her poses as singles now, and has been releasing regularly since..so make sure and check them out too.

Indicative of the…

Whitey

So we know I loves me some hat hair, but hair that fits well under hats with minimal effort at all are all win. The new LeLutka hair Decent does just that, with its tucked behind the ears look it was perfect for this wonderful hat that is part of the Platinum Hunt that just started yesterday.

Over 100 stores with various items all over the grid, all you have to do is find the very tiffany’s like little blue box. If you want to find the slurls to the stores you just need to click the link below the poster, and not only will you get slurls but hints as to their locations as well. Or you can join the group and get up to the minute help. All the Platinum Hunt items are marked at an insanely low 10L per, so do not miss out on the incredible effort these designers have put in.

I took pieces from some of the items, so that I could create my own looks, and show the versatility of the pieces. The Indi item does come with the upper portion of the skirt on the top, but the highwaisted skirt in riddle covers that up nicely. I ran off and bought the white polish pack for the curvacious boots, even though I have the all white pair, I just really wanted the black detailing to add, so with the polish option that was easy peasy.

Start hunting, there will be more shown over the next few days, and I am sure you will find some other treasures while visiting the amazing stores.

Classic

Brigitte

When I was younger, my Mum always tried to encourage me to not buy junky trend items, but to buy classic staples that would never go out of fashion. Of course being a teen means not listening, but even though I do still have a box full of crappy very plasticy jewelry and other crapolla, I do also have an incredible amount of classic items.

When Thora made Brigitte there was an instant image in my head, and I have to be honest I am not even a 100% sure it comes from Brigitte, but the iconic imagery is still there in my head. The bodysuit, the turtleneck and a sexy pair of seamed pantyhose. The three items shown solo here are backing pieces to any mainshow. Add a belt, slip ons and some slacks and you are good to go, or a skirt and some maryjanes or ballet flats and you could end up dancing until dawn. So many looks stem from these pieces, they should have their own stage. But today they are going to be the backdrop for the amazing hair from LeLutka. It comes in two attachments so that the tail part stays where it should on the body, and the high backcombed portion is just stunning.

I am wearing also the new Hadley skin from LeLutka with some make up add ons such as liner and lipstick from the Gem range. Make sure you check out the new hair releases at LeLutka, I will be showing the rest asap. Right now the one that teaches me everything is yacking at me, so time to sign off lol.

Hadley

Hadley2

Hadley3

The second of the sister skins for LeLutka hit the grid today. Hadley is a younger sister to the previous Flutter line, her button nose and pouty lips shouldn’t fool you though, she is all stature and focus. Something about the overall Hadley look had me thinking athlete as soon as I saw her.

She has those scandinavian like cheekbones, youthful face and an incredibly dynamic body…yes the same body as Flutter, but there is something about Hadley that, especially when only wearing hair base, is very sporty like. The trick though when creating an athletic looking skin, is to not make her so sporty that she can’t be feminine, and that is where Minnu’s skills come into play, that and a beautiful arangement of make ups, and fuller glossier lips. The lipsticks of Hadley aren’t overly shiny, but creamier than past lipsticks have been, for me that is a big plus.

I also did some playing around with Hadley last week and found that the Gem lipsticks do really well with her face, they don’t all work, but if you have them or other lipsticks on make up layers, give them a go, you can end up with a lovely hybrid Hadley. If you want to see Hadley up close and personal, not only are there demos as usual, but if you join the LeLutka group you will find a beautiful set of all tones skins in a special make up. A great gift from LeLutka.

I was feeling more love for the vintage denim shorts by Royal Blue, these shorts are just fabulous to wear, and open up lots of layering possibilities. I went with some tshirt and tanks from Jane, and the beautiful jewelry from League – Nena does such great work with accessories. I was feeling very brownzilla and it all came up a treat, actually starting with the shorts, then down to shoes and socks. The sculpted socks from Maitreya are such old faithfuls if you don’t have them already you really need to grab them.

At the moment there is a new event running called Collabor88, where all items are from 88L and upwards, but most are at 88. The concept is that designers will changet out the items on the 8th of every month and at some stages they will actually do collaborations with eachother – I am looking forward to seeing that. Breeze is the hair released by Elikatira for the first of these events, and it is a beautiful style, and the price is amazing, so make sure you visit and get this wonderful hair.
