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.

Ballerina – Diesel Works, BareRose, Mesmerize Dungeon, Stellar

Ballet

Ballet2

Ballet3

Diesel Works just recently expanded into a new store, with a big promotion of gifts, and the recent New Release of the Ballerina Poses featured today. Now other than them being just lovely poses, which they are, they also come with the two colours Tutu set from BareRose.

The poses are fluid and I adore the one were I am fastening up my boots, this set came at the perfect time, as I have recently purchased the AMAZING Ballet Boots from Mesmerize Dungeon.

What is so amazing about them you ask, well lets just talk about the fact that the shape and boot height are wonderful first off, then go into the fact that they are colour change, not just the boots but laces and straps as well. But that isn’t even it, you see these boots unlike any other ballet boots I own are TRAINING BOOTS.

Yeah Yeah they have all the locking capabilities and are restrained life compatible, but that isn’t even the tip of it. You see when you put these boots on they zip up and squeek in real leathery sound goodness, they also have step noises, which you can mute so don’t panic, but again that isn’t even all of it.

You see these boots are inbuilt with pure evil lol. So many criticise Ballet Boots/Shoes in SL , you can’t walk in them etc and so on, blah blah whatever ….in Second Life you can and do, but that is besides the point also. You see these are training boots, which means that you go through a series of levels to achieve more walking ability, and believe me this is HARD work, but soooo much fun, you see while you are in training walk mode every few steps or so you face plant the ground, spin onto your back, pose like you are God’s Gift and then up you get and start all over again.

Seriously FUN FUN FUN, Ashia Tomsen of Inventory Episode and I had Mel, Justice and Kid trailing us all around The Deck last week as we clip clopped around, I was ahead by a quarter of a lap and decided to go back and wait for her lol, this was so adorable you really need to see them for yourself, also get the notecard on all the functions, because there are many.

I also have the Pony Boots, that have you fall on your bum, and I love that fall way better so actually swapped it into my Ballet Boots, there are posestands set up so you see the different walks you do depending on level, and it is HARD but so worth it, and so entertaining.

So fate was this release of lovely poses from Diesel Works with the included if you buy the pack, Tutu outfit from BareRose. Having Ballet tendencies all week it was a meant to be, go try the New Ballerina Poses and check out the NEW Diesel Works store.

The Skins I am wearing in this post are from Stellar, they are the latest and strikingly beautiful Destiny Skins, as soon as I put them on the first thing I noticed was the chin cleft, which I have seen rarely if ever in Second Life before, when speaking to Lexi about them she told me that her daughter has one, so she wanted to incorporate it into her latest skins. This isn’t the first time that Lexi has drawn inspiration from her daughters who have always been spoken of in such high regard and not even in a biased motherly way, but in a way that lets you know that Lexi truly respects and admires them as little Women in training.

The eyeliner on these skins is dramatic but soft at the same time, the make ups range from day wear to evening, so you need to get over and check the demos for your own favourite. The hair is Doris from UncleWeb Studios, an older style that I am not sure if it is in the new store , but hey their hair is fab, so check that out too.
