Fashion from The Evil Bunny

It’s the very last day of this year’s Evil Bunny Hunt! There are 80+ participating stores, each store has a “naughty” and or a “nice” gift and the prizes range from clothing and accessories to home decor. There are even a few gifts for the guys to be had. The starting location is at Grumble. Check the gift there for a Notecard with landmarks/surls to all the hunt locations. So if you haven’t checked out the hunt yet, you’ve got a few hours left, hop to it! I picked up several of the gifts to show you, keep in mind this is a very small sample of the gifts available and is focused on clothing.

Happy Hunting, Enjoy!

Casting The Water

Snapshot_001Hello Fabulouses! Are you mesmerized by my water casting?  Oh come on… play along!  I may not be magic, but there are some awesome Water Casting Poses at the new round of The Candy Factory made by LaNoir Soleil Designs that will put a little enchantment into your hands too.  There are several different poses available in a gacha machine at 47L per play.
Another cool item you will find as a gacha at The Candy Factory in LaNoir Soleil Design’s display in several colour variations is the Water Lotus Head Chains at 74L per play.
Snapshot_004While you are visiting, make sure you snag the free gift LNS has placed out for you – the little shoulder Water Sprite!  **  Note – The Candy Factory officially opens on April 1st, and some designers might be not quite set up, but LNS is!

Snapshot_002The gorgeous white, lacy dress you see me wearing today is currently in the Midnight Mania Board at PeKaS, locking down at 130 slaps.  It’s called The Best Love, and  also includes arm silks and gloves (not shown).  There is also a MM board with a prize for men and lucky boards too!
Snapshot_003Wondering about the skin I am in?  This is WoW Skins Sarola April GG Skin and it is the newest group gift for WoW Skins inworld group members (300L to join).  It may seem like a high join fee, but let me tell you, it’s VERY worth the lindens.  Once you join you gain access to a year’s worth of group  gifts, daily MM board prizes that switch up often, and 10 lucky group only boards!  You’ll be rolling in skins!

Going GaGa for PekaS May Group Gift!!

After getting dressed in my new outfit, I wanted to find someplace fun to hang out…. I found the INSILICO  sim, which is a Cyberpunk roleplay community @ http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/INSILICO/190/183/3603… You dont have to be a RP player to enjoy this sim though!!!  It’s got a full shopping district, dance halls, RP areas,  as well as apartments you can rent if you are looking for a new home in an environment that is certainly playful on the senses!!

BlogPost11_AApparently I wear my GAGA sunglasses at night!!! … Me and Corey Hart must be cozy and stuff!!  I may not have been sporting armor and a jetpack but I certainly felt stylish in my new outfit from PeKaS… This skirt and top ensemble is May’s Group Gift and fits like a glove <3  It also moves well and is textured with flair…

From the Desk of… And PeKaS to Boot!

Greetings and permutations, Fab Freebers!

Server-side Baking2_001

Ok, so this really isn’t MY desk.. Jac Mornington was kind enough to lend me his place so that I could log in and get some info for the Server Side Baking (SSB) stuff that you all have been hearing about. Love asked me to share what little I know on the subject with all of you since, if you’re reading this blog, you care about the appearance of your avatar :)  So I tossed on some clothes I picked up from the monthly gift vendor at PeKaS Urban and sat down to draft up the info. The clothes include snazzy pin-stripe pants with loosened suspenders, a tank top, sweater draped over the shoulders, and a fedora (not shown.)

Well.. time to get to it. I hope this helps. If you have any questions… please by all means, pelt Love with them (kidding!)

Server-side Baking3_001

<Starts scribbling…>

Linden Lab has finished working on the Server Side Baking (SSB) improvement. I am not a representative of Linden Labs nor am I an expert (except in my own mind) but I thought I’d share with you my answers to the questions that I hear most people asking:

Q. What is server side baking?  

A. It is a modification to the LL code which will move baking (or rendering) of your avatar to the region server that your Avatar is currently occupying.  Previously all avatars were rendered on your client (or personal computer, Mac, etc)

Q. Will I have to do anything to my computer to take advantage of it?

A. Yes.  All viewers will have to be updated to use it.

Q. Do I have to update my client?

A. No, you do not have to update your client, but your avatar will continue to render the “old way” which means that there may be white masks for some parts of your avatar or clothing because some textures from  the SSB code will not be recognized by the older client.

Q. What viewers have been updated?

A. The LL Second Life V3 viewer will be updated as well as most major third party viewers. Check with your particular viewer website for updates.

Q What are the pros and cons?

A. Pros – Faster avatar rendering with less resources needed on your computer. This means your computer will be able to do things in SL a little more efficiently.

Cons – It will require you to update your viewer, assuming an update is available.  As with any change, there is likely to be some issue that hasn’t been discovered through the beta testing that may adversely affect your experience within SL.

Q. Why Why Why?

A. Because it will make avatar rendering much more efficient since now the baking will not have to depend on connections and computers of individuals which can be very laggy at times.  If you have a slow computer it will not matter to everyone else. They will see a beautifully rendered avatar  a lot more quickly.

Friday GuyDay: The Guardian

pekasapril3_001f

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me! It’s Friday GuyDay again, and this time I’m bringing you The Guardian, the April group gift from PeKaS Design Gorean. Everything you see here is included, even the boots and the over-the-eyes hood. Perfect for maintaining anonymity while doing unscrupulous pirate things. ;-)

pekasapril8_001f

My skin is AKERUKA’s long-awaited new group gift, Caesar. He comes with the facial hair you see here, as well as the dark eye shadows. I’m also wearing the *DURA* Valentine group gift hair, which is still available (along with the Christmas gift hair), and was previously modeled by Kai Trill a few times, as well as guest blogger Kyle Beckett. It has a short ponytail in the back. Be sure to pick up the free pack of hairbases while you’re there.

Now, I’m off to drink some grog and count me booty! ARRRRR!

Cuz I’m A Gypsy

Snapshot_001

Yep, that’s right, I’m expanding my SL career horizons, and have opened up shop!  You can too…  for free by joining the Hypnotizing Creations inworld group and picking up their latest group gift which is this fun Crystal Ball Table with Animated Sits.

You can also pick up the Disco Night group gift from PeKas inworld group.  I thought it was gypsy looking so it was perfect to show with the table!  The gift includes the sequin top and harem pants.  Both are mesh products.

The hair I am wearing is an older freebie, blogged a bazillion times – but it works really well with this outfit and allowed me to colour change the scarf to match the pants!  This is Naomi from D!va – a group gift from way back that is still available!

Snapshot_004

All three groups are free to join, your luck is looking up!

Geisha Love

PeKaS UrbaN Geisha love

I’m going geisha (sort of) in one of the items on the Midnight Mania Board at PeKaS. The Geisha Love Outfit comes with two-toned jeans, a graphic tank and a belt. Another Midnight Mania find are the Silver Rocked Hi Tops at Top Katz. My skin and hair can both be found on the Make Him Over Hunt. Urban Republic has donated the Hugo Skin for the hunt and Amacci has the Samson Hair as their hunt prize.
