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 have worn this dress all night and had so many compliments. We have had an awesome week of just hanging out with friends, that and boob and bum bouncing of course because the physics thing is just still too funna.

The dress is Dolly Disco by Ivalde, and it is all disco and more, the slinky and seductive lines of this dress are perfect, a system skirt lover like myself is in heaven. I went with some great heels from Elikatira to help with the dancing till dawn, the sturdy heel of these shoes is a definite plus, not only for dancing, but they have that sexy librarian thing going on as well.

I am wearing the new Alice skin from YS & YS, such beautiful make ups as usual, the 14 different skins come with so many tattoo layer options, lashes, breasts, brow colours and freckles, as well sold seperately you can buy even more lipsticks. The eyeshadows and liners on these skins are just fab, so having more lippy options is awesome…demo demo demo

I used one of my own backgrounds again, submitted to the Second Life Stock Images Group on flickr, I feel like one of those TV Chefs that pulls out a plate of scones ‘I prepared earlier”. Kind of nifty actually having the backgrounds all at the ready, and so exciting when you see people using them for ads and stuff.

The other day Aisling was taking pics with us at The Deck in our VR Studio’s, we are so cute, we all have our stands tinted different colours so we know at a glance who’s are who’s, so when we want a change of poses we swap. So anyway we were gasbagging about whatever in skype and Aisling mentioned hair and UrfUrf, a hair store I am ashamed to say I knew nothing about. So off we went and bam, bought out most of the store. One of the styles I am sporting from them is Clarissa, I love this style, it is the everyday all day do you can’t live without. The textures are all mixed up over there as I think they are changing how they do their hair packs, but well worth the visit, I have already been back since and bought their newest in only three days lol.

The other hair I am wearing is created of course by Maitreya, the winner of this years Glance Awards for Hair and Shoes, so proud of Beau and Onyx for being so awesome, and also on letting me embarrass myself and I am sure them by losing voice during the event and doing a backflip on the stage because I was so upset on letting them and everyone else down. But the hair ROCKS!.

My look today is totally rich girl gets a pony, snickers, seriously I love this look, thanks to the new release by Mon Tissu of this gorgeous Rockaby Blazer, Infinity Scarf and Cozy Tee, bringing it all into gear with the recent boots from Royal Blue and the not so new Jodhpurs from Prelude.

Still in the last week of Vanity Universe’s Skin Fair and the skin I am wearing is Bella from Xplosion. The skin comes in five different tones, each tone with 8 make ups, eyebrow and hair base options, lashes and stuff I wont mention because it is evil and there are six of them lol. Bella has an incredible cleavage, like WOWZA I thought I had accidently slipped on my slider by another 20 or something, but nope all skin. Try the demos for sure at the fair, they are really beautiful and make sure you wear a nice cleavage baring top.

I am showing off the tones in the new Dolly Set by Miseria, I love when Miseria releases, the items are always so random and divine, the detailing on this set is gorgeous, look at those cute and still sexy little buttons on the sides of the body suit and gloves. You could totally add a gown skirt and have an incredible evening look. You can see I have added the lovely jewelry set by Eclectica called Flounce in Champagne, lots of pieces to the set, and you can wear all or some depending on your mood. This would be a beautiful set for someone special that adores formal wear.

Wool skirt and no jacket

Rid

Reason 465647 to love sculpties would have to be the midlength skirt….

I love mid length skirts, and some make fantastic ones with prims and flexi alone, don’t get me wrong, some of my all time favourites are made that way…but it is really nice to be able to not flexify and have prims doing things other than just staying still. Mind you you do need a very calm AO for this kind of skirt, nothing too bendy at the waist and sticking your bum out, I save those AO’s for other looks, but I love the ensembles I have created today, with these wonderful woolskirts from Riddle.

Not only are they wonderful as sculpts, but with the glitch pants being made the way glitch pants should be, even if you have a leg peeking out etc, it all still looks good. Another gorgeous item from Riddle is the Cable Knit Cutie sweater on the right. The sweater comes with two sleeve lengths, I opted for the shorter version and layered another sweater from Fri.day underneath, with extra long armlenths it is a nice cozy look for the still chilly days.

Boots recently released by addictia are the Adnata boots, these are so cute, not only do they have detailing and cute oversized buckles, but they also have matching leather wrist cuffs that are so cool, totally working my biker chic. Then of course I had to wear my Allure with socks today, I love these shoes with socks, but I also love with without, but sometimes you just want that extra ” I am fashion ” feel going on.

New Hair New Hair New Hairrrrr, Maitreya today released New Hair, and the Nadja style is one of three new styles, the fourth being the gift item  of a few months ago that everyone is still asking for, so was finally released for sale. Nadja is just divine, its long, its wavey and if you know Maitreya hair like I know Maitreya hair, then you will notice new texture types not colours, adding a little bit more wave to the styles.

The other day I was fortunate to stumble across Pink Fuels SALE on the Ember skins, not sure if it is still on, but if it is you best be getting over there to buy it all up. The singles are a steal at 150 the mini packs even more so at 300 and then the mega is 800L. It is very youthful in the face and I would think could look great on some of the back to school avs I have been seeing around a lot lately, you know the little ones that are really big ones in disguise lol.

East meets West

Darsh

I love technology, the internet, computers etc. You know when I first bought a PC, I had no idea what to do with it, or how vast the internet was. It ended up being used for emails and playing Age of Empires and the Sims for years. Seriously my trying to use the web, failed every time, because I didn’t know what to do, or what to look for.

Now I can watch my favourite T.V shows, do a blog post, be inworld and a dozen other things all at once. All my computer knowledge comes from online, from the people I have met along the way, everything I do now has been shown to me, or motivated me to learn along the way, I think that is the best gift the internet can give us…not so much the links to sites or whatever, but the connections to people that we learn from along the way. One of the most amazing resources out there are the tutorials done by other people like you and I, everyday people wanting to share their knowledge of things. YouTube is full of them, and they amaze me sometimes, especially the Second Life ones.

So if you ever think you know how to do something that either comes up as a query often, or you just want to share how you specifically do something, I urge you to do a tutorial on it, so many bloggers myself included have done one or more in the past, and it can totally change how you look at something. So go for it :).

A few weeks ago Zaara had the Deesha Cropped shirt in FLF, and it was a huge hit, so much so that there are now other colours in the range, and so cute too. I love the whole ‘little bit country’ look of the style, mixed with a more indian textiles and traditional collar look, it is like east meets west and I am all for it.

I am wearing it a few different ways today, but however you choose it will all work. The hair I am wearing is from Elikatira, her new styles for the week and so pretty. I am all for her building on her shorter styles, she does long and medium so well, but always seems to blow me away with her shorter styles, not a fan of short hair at all in RL, it was actually styles like her older pixie – etd days – that converted me into trying shorter styles in SL and embracing them to my hair addiction long ago lol.

No Regrets

Nyal

The other night, probably for the 100th if not more time, I had a flashback to a regret. The regret was not buying something in Second Life, that ended up being a limited edition item. For the nearly four years since as it was a 2007 item, I have remembered it fondly and jealously…wishing that I hadn’t hesitated, thinking that it would be around another time, I also wish I had read the bloody sign that obviously must have said ‘Jewelry Fair item only ” or something like that.

So rather than scream from a tall building I took the regret to plurk, asking others if they also had purchase regrets of things they ‘didn’t’ buy, thinking like I did that it would be around long enough to get it ‘later’. I plurked the regret, even finding an old blog post pic from Fashion Victim Blog and it was even more beautiful to me in pic form, but I had never actually forgotten it, or even for that matter made it shinier and prettyer in my memories, it was exactly as it was.

On reading back through peoples responses I found that Chav Paderborn had responded with regretting to not buy a Canimal skirt, one which I knew of immediately, it used to actually be set up to buy right at the begining of her store, so you saw it every visit, and I had blogged it a long time ago. I rushed to my inventory and there it was, and even better it was transfer, so I sent it sailing in the direction of Chav with best wishes, to be able to fix that regret made me so happy.

Today I stopped in my tracks as a drop down appeared and my heart beat faster, and instant tears welled in my eyes, it was the Paper Couture set but not only was it the one that I had always wanted, but it was being given to me by an Angel, the beautiful and so generous always Milla Michinaga.

She is not only an exceptional blogger, designer and all round beauty, but she has always been so amazing to me. One of my fondest memories regarding her, is at a fashion show held about a billion years ago, and her and I were both there with many other bloggers and customers, it was so laggy while we waited that every so often one of us would crash come back resit and end up upside down in the corner of the sim – remember that delightful bug . While there Milla was being very cheeky and she tried to steal my inventory – yes I remember – and today she added to it in the most giving of ways, the set is beautiful, not only that, but it is something she cannot replace, something that didn’t loose it’s lustre and something I will always remember….thank you Milla you made me cry with such joy today.

So I was thinking, what do you regret not buying, because I would love to hear about it …..

Now for things I have that rock, these Magnifico boots I have had for ages, and blogged eons ago, but was looking at them the other day and thought, damn they are so incredibly textured and made, they need to sashay around my blog all over again.

Mixing them up with some great items from Nyte n Day, Decked is series that has the skirts and pants, tanks and long sleeved tops, I decided to incorporate those with the torn jeans and very very cute flexi skirt…adding to the overall looks the incredible new bodysuits from Royal Blue, these are done in a series of solid colours in varying shades of block colours, they are just wonderful for adding to any look, either under a top or over, or just worn on their own with skirts or pants.

Wearing the last and most recent releases of hair from Elikatira, the new Here style of a tight low back bun is going to be a favourite of many, I had a particular squeeling moment with Marni yesterday when it came out, it is such an awesome professional looking style, that works so well for those in business in SL. Frost is the style that was recently in a hunt, and of course everyone wanted it in all colours, so yay for that. Make  sure you grab them all, no regrets ;).

Long Walk

Elf

A quickie post for now, feeling incredibly sexy for 1am on a monday morning is odd for most people, but then again, I have to confess to it not being the first monday morning I have been roaming around in clubwear, ignoring the fact that outside the doors a new week and a new day is begining.

The other day I showed the Red Mint skins, I am not sure that I mentioned that the matching prim nails come with, random colour set with each skin, but now with the latest release of some stunning Red Mint hair we have elf ears that not only look fantastic, and have wonderful piercings etc, but also a handy hud to match each and every skin tone that Red Mint have in their line.

Elate has just brought out these beautiful shrugs, they are done in a metalic square sequined look, they are really fun to wear as shown in a clubby look, but also make such lovely formal shrugs over the top of gowns and/or cocktail frocks. All the gold and yellow really worked for me, with the black contrast, but all good club looks need some killer shoes, and the tough love boots rock that out, they have a wedge platform style base, which for me means that extra support you will need for dancing and that long walk home because the stupid cab companies always seem to swap driver times at the exact times nearly every club closes its doors, leaving nothing but cast roads to walk down….WHAT IS UP WITH THAT?
