Physique

062514c

Siddean Munro’s new mesh body Physique changes all sorts of things. No more pointy calves, no more tearing of the avatar joints, and no more funky gap between the body and the upper arm. As always, Izzie Button is right on top of Slink releases with appliers for the mesh body. I have been surprised and pleased to find that I can wear some mesh clothes with the body with no issue. This will be something that will have to be tweaked as time goes on, but I am glad to know not ALL of my mesh clothes are now defunct.

My outfit today is from Teefyat Summerfest. Also at Summerfest is the sweet Hedgehog pal.

A Really Big Fireplace

There are two dreams I have always had…the first is to have a really, really big bathtub, and the other is to have a great big fireplace that you can cook stuff in. I haven’t realized either dream yet in RL, and as far as fireplaces go, it’s probably never gonna happen. So imagine my happiness to find this great little mesh cottage from Post as part of the Cold Winter Nights hunt. And it has a fireplace to please my pyromaniac heart!

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.

Big Dogs

My first dog was a small, part Maltese mix named Katie. She was a decent dog, as far as family dogs go, but she was a yapper, and an uncontrollable one at that. She was not an attack dog, but she did love to bark. I have very fond memories of my Katie, but I did learn that a small, yapping dog was not the way I wanted to go in the future. I have always been a big dog kind of girl—the hounds, the working dogs—dogs with a purpose, I call them. Even though my own beautiful Luna does not pull carts or herd sheep like she was bred to do, she does keep watch on the house and deter anyone from approaching me on the street by looking big and scary.

Sadly, no one has made a Bernese Mountain Dog in SL yet—a huge omission if I do say so myself. However, that does not meant that the big dogs get no love:

Carrie Tatsu has created some of the most realistic-looking animals I have seen in SL. Animals are notoriously hard to create in SL—something about all those folding joints, I guess. But this big boy (named Con after one of my favorite vampire novel characters) looks realer than I do, right down to that very curious-canine expression in his eyes. Usually Great Danes aren’t quite so big, but my avatar is only 5’8” in SL, which is apparently midget-sized. But in any case, curling up with a big dog is way more satisfying than with a little one, so if you have your own big goof of a dog, show them some love today.

A dog like Con requires some no nonsense shoes (mostly for chasing) and I am wearing the comfy mesh Uggs from Guu Nishi at Hoc Industries today. Also, Maxi Gossamer has just released a new necklace called Babette, and while there is a very high likelihood that it will get caught on Con’s ears (or in his mouth), I couldn’t resist putting it on today.

**Con does all sorts of doggy things in addition to looking adorable, which you can read about here.

A Friend Indeed

Today is my RL birthday and so it’s time for a big confession:
Sometimes I get really sick of taking pictures of myself.
Not that I don’t love blogging—I do, it is such a great learning experience and I absolutely love SL Fashion. I have also learned how much work it is to do high quality work. Most of all I have loved getting to know other bloggers and designers. I am not that great at putting together looks and backgrounds and what-have-you, and avatar adjustment is absolutely NOT my forte. But I feel like it’s okay, because it’s really about the people and the fashion, right? And eventually I will learn to do it better. In fact, one friend couldn’t believe the pictures for today were really of me. And guess what? They’re not. Smile
This week, I asked some friends if they would be my models so I didn’t have to take pictures of myself—happy birthday to me. Today we have my girl Gypsy. She is great pal and is always ready to drop everything and pose if I need a model. That’s not easy to find in SL! Not to mention everything she puts on is amazing. Gypsy has done shoots with me before, but for this shoot I said “do whatever you want, I am just taking the pictures!” And in true Gypsyan fashion, she hit it out of the ballpark.
