Flow

One of the reasons I am grateful for the advent of mesh in SL clothing is that poses that were previously impossible without breaking the avatar (and requiring considerable photo-shopping in the ensuing photos). This pose, for example, by my pal Bastion Flare, tears up the thigh and bottom of the regular avatar terribly. With my gorgeous mesh dress from Harry Hyx at Ison, however, all of that is replaced by shapely flowing fabric.

The Cute Azz definitely makes things better than the regular avatar mesh, but there is still a little fold that I find a little weird. Here are the raw shots with the regular system bottom shape and the Cute Azz. Maybe for poses like this CK Winx needs to create a Tiny Azz!

Snow Day

Do any of you have a friend that not only lets you dress them up for pictures but also tolerates snow being stuffed in their face? I do.

Clearly he’s a keeper. Stewart is bearing the switch to mesh clothing with good grace…most of the time. And he does wear it well!

And speaking of keepers, there is so much fabulous mesh goodness flying around this holiday season. The Frostbite Cottage has been a huge hit since Collabor88 opened last Saturday. I personally haven’t wanted to take off Trill Zapatero’s  gorgeous knitted sweaters since the minute they came out. And Scout Danger of Sanctuaire has made a wonderful mesh tree in three different versions, undecorated, lights only or fully decorated. Add to that the lovely mesh giftboxes from Cory Edo and my cozy boots from KKC, and I am one happy girl.

Pose Fair 2012: Horse Love

Captivity has a great mesh horse prop at the Pose Fair. When I first saw it I was reminded of a photo I took when my Uncle Tim took me and a group of cousins up into the high Uintahs on horseback. It remains to this day one of my favorite trips ever. So I pulled the photo out of the scrapbook and scanned it. This is Zach, he was always my horse when my uncle took us on these overnighters. He was a big part-Clydesdale, part Morgan and we got along well together.

Zach

I know, I know, I am the height of fashion here. Let’s just remember that I was sleeping on the ground and about a hundred miles from anywhere, so no judging, please! Smile

I have named my mesh horse Zach in my old friend’s honor.

042712a

There are five different poses that come with the horse and you can change the color of the coat and the mane. I tried to get him to look as much like my Zach as possible. And as for me, I did manage to find a similar, albeit more stylish sweatshirt and hat. I really like this casual hat style from Argrace. No Green Eggs and Ham, but we’ll just call that an improvement. My jeans are from PerleRare at Oh! and they are perfect for comfy horseback riding, being definitely more curvy-style than many other mesh jeans I have seen.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Folly

First of all, congrats to the randomly chosen winners of the Yulicie canvas shoes this week:

1. Sam Laszlo

2. Shayariel Teardrop

3. Arya Braveheart

Head over to Yulicie and let me know which color you would like!

And now for Folly, which was, in my opinion, is very aptly named.

fol·ly

noun \ˈfä-lē\

Definition of FOLLY

1: lack of good sense or normal prudence and foresight

2a : criminally or tragically foolish actions or conduct

There was definitely nothing sensible or prudent about how much time it took to put this color together! One thing I am definitely loving though is Luna’s new windlight setting:

One thing about research in SL is that you find some nice things along the way. I found quite a few new-to-me hairstyles from Argrace on the marketplace and chose to wear one of them today. The Argrace store is closed and under construction at the moment so all of the hair designs are on the Marketplace for the time being. There are a lot of great styles for both men and women—s0 for my giveaway this week I will give out one Argrace hairstyle in the color of choice to three commenters on this post.
