Taxi!

misty morning

It took me incredibly long to get ready today because I was determined to wear the mesh body and not give up. After a lot of shape adjusting, playing with the alpha hud and swearing at myself continuously, I finally got ready without any glitches or parts sticking out. I don’t know about you, but I feel pretty accomplished.

I love mesh but I have to admit, it has made the task of changing and getting ready in Second Life so much more time consuming. However, the end result does look pretty good, doesn’t it? I didn’t liquify myself at all or mess with my body too much in Photoshop, only the atmosphere and lighting. Here is a raw shot of one of these images.

Taxi!

Anyhow, since I got all dolled up for work, I figured I’d go somewhere to show it off. So I went to the New York City sim and took a taxi…alas no one was there.

I’m just not gonna change my clothes ever again.
