Butterfly Dreams

butterfly dreams

The mesh head I’m wearing in today’s post was actually released in March of 2014 and I had blogged it back then (Slink Visage Post) but since I have been making videos of mesh heads recently on my youtube channel, I thought I would break out the Emma head and share the expressions of that one as well.

I believe SLink was one of the first to release a mesh head with expressions. At that time when I had tried them, I didn’t feel they were quite me and wasn’t comfortable wearing them. But now that I have gotten more used to mesh heads, I like it quite a bit. I think it has a beautiful side profile. I am not a big fan of the expressions still, but overall it’s a lovely head so I did want to feature it properly once again with a video this time.

Here is some info about the head if you are interested in purchasing:
> Price – L$2250
> Demo – free
> Location – SLink Mainstore
> Appliers – Visage Head Appliers Store List

My beautifully animated butterfly wings are from Hopscotch, currently available at the Gacha Garden. You can see how they work in my video but Chandni also has a video with more details on when each of the flapping speeds work.

Please note: the butterfly AO I am using in the video and the first image is actually one that comes with the rideable butterfly. Even though it is a riding AO, I just thought it looked kind of cool just like that so decided to show you guys.

Since I was dressed up like a beautiful butterfly fairy, I decided to visit the Sand Dunes sim, which is the home of the Salt & Pepper mainstore. The sim itself has a winter theme right now, however I recalled visiting once and noticing a little hidden area that was on the other side of the sim, opposite the store, with the loveliest little fairy garden. I had to go back for that. As you can see in the video I posted above, it’s just a beautiful little place and wonderful for pictures. It also has a little hammock (which I had derendered for my shoot) so you can spend some relaxation time there. The hammock also has animations for couples!

Akeruka Mike Mesh Head

Designer KaoZ Koba of Akeruka has released another mesh head for men, this time named Mike. It is similar to the Akeruka Keith mesh head I blogged about three weeks ago. It is fully animated like Keith and has all talk, blinking and face animations but it looks drastically different and comes with different skin […] Continue reading →

LeLutka Swish Hair

(raw shot) One thing I love about LeLutka is how they are always at the top of the game. Today they have released 6 new mesh hairstyles that are animated in a very subtle and natural way. I am not exactly sure how they did this, I’m thinking it has something to do with physics, […] Continue reading →

Second Life Avatar Physics

(available on marketplace) Linden Lab introduced Avatar physics to Second Life back in 2011. I was never a big fan of it, I’m still not to be honest. However, ever since fitted mesh bodies have been released, physics have not looked so bad with them. The bouncing effect is a lot more subtle with the […] Continue reading →

What Second Life Means to Me

To celebrate Second Life’s 12th birthday Linden Lab has introduced a video share project called “What Second Life Means to Me” in which they have asked some Second Life residents, as well as some Lindens themselves, what Second Life means to them. I was very happy and nervous when I was asked to be a part of […] Continue reading →
