Dog Day Afternoon

4 Comments

You know the expression, “Going to the dogs?” Well, that’s pretty much where my day has gone. In addition to the many, many SL problems, there have been family interruptions, phones and doorbells ringing, and numerous computer problems that have left me eyeing the hammer for a solution. I had so much trouble taking this photo that I finally just gave up and went with one of the few shots I managed to get. So I apologize for the goofy errors you see here. :-x

Ok, enough whining. I’m sure you’d rather know what we’re wearing, anyway. ;-)

Gavin and I are both wearing the April group gifts from Vero Modero. Gavin’s outfit includes the mesh hoodie and pants, and mine is this floral print, mesh dress. The sleeves of my dress are supposed to have the cutouts you see here, but the additional little “hole” is a break in the mesh from this pose, which I didn’t notice until after I had given up on the photos. I didn’t want you to think it was a flaw in the dress, because it’s not (Gavin’s pants have a little rip in the right leg, but that’s supposed to be there). Our necklaces are group gifts from Chop Zuey (350L to join). I apologize that you can’t see the earrings hidden in my hair, and bracelets that Gavin is blocking, as both are free gifts for everyone – no group is needed! If you head over to the Chop Zuey store, you’ll be able to see big photos of both of these under the FabFree sign. Gavin is still wearing the free group gift eyes from Hudson’s Clothing Co. (free to join) that he had on here. The sunglasses are part of the Mr. Hunter Hunt v.IV gift from Shadow Moon, which Gavin modeled here. Oh, and Gavin’s ring is a free gift from ::GABRIEL:: – no group is needed, but you do need the special code from their Facebook page.

If you have ventured into the world of mesh feet/hands, you’ve most likely heard that many skin designers have released texture applier HUDs for the recently updated Slink feet and hands. I won’t get into the details here, since several other bloggers have already written detailed posts on the how’s and why’s of using them. But I will say this: I’ve wasted spent many, MANY hours trying to match my feet to different skins, and it wasn’t easy. These appliers are literally ONE click to match. It’s that simple! To celebrate, [:Tuli:] is offering these cute henna tattoo appliers for her group members (199L to join). These are actual appliers for the Slink mesh feet – not simple tattoo layers – and include 3 different henna tattoos. I still haven’t made the leap to mesh  hands, but in case you have, there is also a gift henna applier for hands. Note: these gift appliers only work with [:Tuli:] skins, and will not match skins from other designers (mesh feet are not included).

Ok dogs: I want my day back! :-D

  1. Hello!

    It’s been a while since I’ve watched this blog so I apologize if these are reposts, but I would love to bring it up to your attention (or anyone else who cares to know) – That there is a lower-priced MESH feet, provided by NOYA for about L$150 …

  2. Thank you for the recommendation, @Laoise! I haven’t tried any of those, but it never hurts to have options. And those SL feet are hideous!

  3. Serena & Gavin look very cozy! Cute pic!

  4. Fab post Serena! I put my SLink hands on almost a year ago and literally have not gone without them. I had a tougher time matching the feet but, now that the update is out, it should be easier. I LOVE my SLink hands and feet…some things are worth investing in; even if they aren’t free. <3<3
