Close Your Eyes

You Can Close Your Eyes

Well the sun is surely sinking down, but the moon is slowly rising,

so this old world must still be spinning ’round, and I sill love you.

So, close your eyes.  You can close your eyes; it’s all right…

Hello again, Fabulous Readers!  My first stop at The Cart Wash Sale was the Baci Shop display, where I found the Last Leaves Dress that I blogged about {HERE}.  Ripley and I planned to start checking out the rest of The Cart Wash, but before we began our journey, I couldn’t resist scooping up another Fabulous Find from the Baci Shop, this gorgeous sweater dress.

Visiting the Baci Shop, Again

With rich tones, long sleeves and a chunky knit, this frock will keep me toasty warm well into autumn.  I love the bright pops of color in the simple flowers, which contrast beautifully against the ombre background of the “Again” dress.   Its snug fit draws attention to my curves in all the right places.  I could see myself sporting this dress in RL as well as SL, if only temperatures were below the 90’s.  (Hang in there, Kat, we’ll get there….).  Priced at only 10L, this budget-friendly, gorgeous sweater dress will snuggle you in warmth and style, while leaving plenty of spare linden dollars for more Cart Wash finds.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

So Many More Discoveries to Make…

With two Fabulous Finds just from one vendor at The Cart Wash, Ripley and I are eager to explore further.  I’m sure we will be back soon!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Wiggling My Fingers

Snapshot_001

Hey there Fabulouses!  On March 8th, Slink announced that they had updated their mesh hands in the redelivery system to Bento for FREE for those that have already purchased their slink hands.  My IM box was lighting up like crazy with the news, and the notecards were flying in… Yet I put off going to pick up the free update worrying that it would be confusing, have some kind of costly catch and be time consuming to set up.

Procrastination

I went on with my week as per usual, all the while thinking…  “I should just go get them, and figure it out“, but it wasn’t until last weekend when there was some fun chat going on in the Fabulously Free in SL group about these new hands!  Fab member Brinlea cracked me up when she mentioned that she was so excited about her new Slink Dynamic Hands, that she was logging in just to watch them move around.  News of this inspired me to head down there and pick them up!

Boy was I surprised to find out that:

    1. They were easy to figure out.
    2. No purchase of new skin appliers was necessary as I could use the slink appliers I already had to match up to  my skins.
    3. There are plenty of affordable bento animations and poses available to make your hands move.
    4. It comes with basic poses, and nail add-ons.

See for yourself!

I made a couple of quick little GIF snaps of my avatar wearing the Slink Dynamic Hands with a Bento Animation so that you can see how the new hands have movement.  SO COOL! You’ll be logging in like Brinlea and I to watch your hands move too…

What’s “Bento” ?

Here’s how Jeremy Linden explains what bento actually is…  https://community.secondlife.com/knowledgebase/english/enhanced-skeleton-project-bento-r773/

More information can be found on the Slink Blog – https://slinkstyle.com/2017/03/08/slink-dynamic-hands-aka-project-bento-comes-to-slink/

In closing…

In closing, I did want to mention that if you picked up the free update right away when it was released, that you should go back and make sure you have Version 1.3 as they fixed a couple bugs.  You should also know that you’ll need to be on a Bento compatible viewer to see the movement.
