The Spring Season Challenge

The Spring Season Challenge
(click here for raw shot)

Tomorrow is April 1st and this month always reminds me of spring; probably because of the old saying, “April showers bring May flowers.” I thought this week would be perfect to do a spring challenge.

Meme Instructions: Share a spring-themed picture and/or answer the following questions about the season. Don’t forget to leave a link to your post in the comments and share your picture in the Blog Memes Flickr Group.

  1. What is the spring season like where you live? – I live in Florida and it’s pretty much the same weather year round. We don’t get leaves falling in autumn or snow in winter. We pretty much stay green throughout the year, but it does warm up a bit from the cooler weather we get in winter. It’s also a great time to go to the beach because it’s not scorching hot like it is in summer. It’s warm and sunny but you are able to stay out for a longer period of time without overheating. Spring time is my favorite time to go to the beach.
  2. What’s the first thing that pops into your head when you think of spring? – Believe it or not, spring break. People usually come down to Florida for spring break, March/April and it gets really crowded here at times, especially around certain beaches like Daytona. When I was in college, my friends and I used to go to the beach just to meet up with people from different places. Lots of fun spring break memories.
  3. Which spring-themed sim in Second Life is your favorite at the moment? – There are so many beautiful sims, it’s hard to choose one. I will go with one that I blogged recently, even though the theme isn’t exactly spring but it does have a spring feel to me, Frisland.

Please remember that you can participate in any of the memes/challenges at any time. You’ll find them all under my Blog Challenges category along with other memes and challenges I’ve done over the years.

The Spring Season Challenge

I wanted to talk a bit about Fitted Mesh as well. I haven’t spoken much about it since my last blog post where I mentioned it. Fitted Mesh hit the official viewer in February and then followed its way to Firestorm shortly after.

More and more designers have been releasing content using this method and I have been demoing and trying it out. One thing I noticed is, it doesn’t seem to fit me properly. It fits very big on me and I am not sure what might be causing this. The lovely top I am wearing in this post is fitted mesh and I’m not sure if you can tell from my pictures, but I felt it was a bit too roomy. Unfortunately it only came in one size so I was kind of stuck with it and was not able to try a different size to see if it would fit better.

I would love it if designers still provided standard sizing for their fitted mesh items so we can see which size fits the best. I’m not sure if this is something that is possible, but if it is, it may help with sizing a bit. I love the top, I felt it was very spring, but I do wish it was a bit more snug.

Have you had a chance to try fitted mesh as of yet? What are your thoughts on it? Can you share some stores that have started releasing fitted mesh content? Thank you. <3
