Study Break

This weekend is the Rhode Island Academic Decathlon competition. That means my oh-so-delightful-but-procrastinating students put in a long weekend of studying in preparation for a lot of test taking today.

I was wondering what that might look like in SL, and fortunately my collection of books came in handy. Vespertine has quite a few lovely book options in their Arcade gacha this round so it was fun to round them up and put them to good use. Another Arcade jewel is Truth Hawks’ Maiko hair with headphones—they provide a much needed break from all that book-studying. And my sweet heart necklace can be found at this round of One Word.

I also cannot say enough good things about Barnesworth Anubis’ wonderful 5th avenue skybox, out at Collabor88 now. I can see myself living in this one for some time.

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!
