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.

Dream a little Dream

Before I start today’s post, I wanted to quickly say thank you to some people who sent me gifts using my Second Life wishlist. Almost two weeks ago I blogged: Second Life Wish Lists by E2 Designs. I had thrown a few things on my list at that time since there were not that many […] Continue reading →

Falling in Love

Have you ever seen those lovey dovey couples that dress the same? I always kind of giggled at them until recently it happened to me and my boyfriend. It was completely accidental but we ended up wearing similar colors and were basically walking around all day like that, it was kind of hilarious. I thought […] Continue reading →

Dreaming of Paradise

Dominate

Skin Smoothing

So, I was a bad girl this week and totally goofed off instead of learning something new in photoshop. Therefore I thought this time I would share a skin smoothing tutorial that helped me a lot a few years ago. This is the technique I still use to smooth skin. The tutorial is by Ryker […] Continue reading →

Cheerno Emilia

I’m not normally a blond […] Continue reading →
