In my Garden

In my Garden

I was really into the fun of taking these pics today, so much so that I made the placement background from scratch just because I was all in. I made the cork the board, the pins and the swatches, I am so chuffed right now, as sometimes it is not just using Photoshop for photo-editing that you should play around with, but really playing with all the features, little by little things come together.

A bit like items in Second Life, Why don’t people just click every button? or try on every item etc in something they purchase that may be a bit more feature driven than something like putting on a shirt. One of the things that made Second Life grow in the first place was creative curiosity. I had a friend who if we were standing still for any amount of time, and he could rez, would start manipulating prims to such a degree that he made jewellery that was so minute and detailed and not once did he use an alpha cheat trick or anything else to get the items as small as they could go. Hair creators were often people that edited their hair so often to make it fit, or reshape it across a shoulder, or just wanted to look a little different than their friends, then went on to create from scratch – mind you this was when things were made in world. It is like me learning software when managing stores in RL, I would just sit and click and sub-menu click and so on until I found things that would never be so visible normally. Only one time did I have to call IT after of course switching it off and on again.

So other than all the lovely floral parts of my post, it is about taking the time to sit down somewhere nice in SL, and cam on yourself or the items and try the huds, each section click away, if smoke starts wafting in then stop, and unpack another. We live in the day of copy and unpacking and redelivery, so if it is copy, and you can unpack another, or just make a copy first if you are worried, get to know those things you liked enough to purchase, see what you can do with it and really get your enjoyment out of it and appreciate also the effort that goes in to making all those things happen.

Breathe has made some divine footwear,  not only for Shoetopia which are the middle and right shoes, but also Fameshed that are the ones on the left that look like kitten whiskers 🙂 so cute. I was also on a mission the other day for a tutu and came across this older dress by Amiable, now often with the fast pace of SL and bodies etc, I don’t get time to go back and revisit older clothing that was prior to fitted and this came up the other day and I was like so excited, as there was no possible reason I cannot wear this dress, I only had to alpha out my upper chest.

I hope you like all the lovely spring looks for the day, the weather is still so incredibly warm down here that it feels right for once all over the world, but then in the US it is snowing in some places, so go figure.
