Finding my way back in blogging… I am really excited about MESH items in Second Life! I already read about MESH months ago and was really curious. I think this will be a huge improvement for our SL-experience.
Mesh is a capability to bring models, known as meshes, created in other applications into Second Life. Mesh is available now on the entire Second Life main grid. (Source) You have to be in a viewer that is able to view MESH items. I use the official Linden Lab Second Life Viewer. Renee already sent me a notecard with lots of places to visit for Mesh items. Sooo some more blogposts will follow soon! xxx Enjoy ^^

I am wearing the dress as a top and wearing the underpants, which I modified to be a bit shorter, combined with the shirt part. I rightclicked ‘add’ in inventory to wear the tights! The (mesh) boots are so cute!

I still have to learn a lot about Mesh, but I am sure it still needs to be fine tuned. Cause with shadows it shows shadows of the boots AND my feet! Lol!

I got inspired by these boots from the dressing room. They come in different colors and are cute! The only thing is I don’t know how to resize them, but they for sure will fit your feet and keep them warm! Soo, trying to find nice things to match with these nice boots… some free, some not.. sowwy I couldn’t resist! Enjoy ^^

Sneaking One In

Renee Lowenhart has lost her mind! Someone’s gotta be saying that because she somehow let me spill out of my blog, A Passion for Virtual Fashion, into hers as a guest blogger. That’s because I have found some fantastic FabFree kinda content that I wanted to share with her and she let ME blog it. Beware who you let guest blog, Renee 😉

Sneaking One In--FabFree

I was so thrilled to find some of the bargains on the Fountainhead sim among a group of creators in TRIAD TOWN. I IM’d Renee to tell her about these fantastic outfits for women and men and then said, let me show your readers! So here is a sampling of a few outfits I picked up from IZUMIYA for 25L each, including the shoes, accessories, and jewelry. (With all the sculpties and work on these, it’s a great bargain.) In addition, a glance upstairs at the store showed several free things for women AND men including poses (some of which I show here), a men’s suit, dress, accessories, and jewelry.

My skins are the 10L offerings from Essence this week in celebration of their 1st anniversary. Honestly, it’s quite a deal. For 80L, you can snatch up the entire line in one skin tone and have a darn nice fat pack.

Sneaking One In--FabFree

The hair was another find on the Fountainhead sim at AY.LinE. Click the little box near the front counter and this fat pack is yours. It includes a color change scarf and is modifiable for size. Could you ask for any more?

Thanks for letting me share, Renee 😉

I put this outfit together…. a few days ago… but it seems It included way to many temporarily items, and I don’t like to blog those at all.. sooo removed those and this is the result…. take it or leave it.. lol. The boootsss are a must have! Enjoy xxx ^^

The blush and mole are from a new make up brand and I just love it! I could buy everything chelle offers atm, cause it’s a great add to lots of skins, and very affordable priced! I grew a mole…lol ❤ it! .. hihih..

 Soo i had some huge issues with my pc, but it’s all back up… and working… I still have to get used to everything new.. including PS and such.. also I got a new graphics card! I am in SL viewer 2.1 and playing with all official and unofficial features… like shadows in SL ! It’s looking pretty… but I see i’ve lighten up the picture too much… LOL! (see below) xxx Enjoy ^^

Playing around with features in Viewer 2.1:

I have read lots of other residents tutorials on how shadows or as LL calles it “defferend rendering” works and this is how I got it to work (you’ll need a good graphics card, look at the system requirements on the SL official website):
– in preferences set graphics to Ultra
– hit Ctrl+Alt+Q to open the Develop menu
– go to Rendering > check “Framebuffer Objects”
– go to Rendering again > check “Defferend Rendering” > shadows is on!
Then I went to > World > Sun > Environmental Editor > Advanced Sky > and played around with the sliders on the Atmosphere and Lightning tab > Sun and Moon position and the East angle. My eyes turned black or just dissapear, but that seems to be a know issue, but since shadows isn’t official it will probably won’t be fixed any soon… soo you’ll have to wear prim eyes! I like it and I hope you do too and…. have advice for me 😉 (#daretoask)!! I found the ‘tips and tricks‘ on the secondlife blog also very helpfull to make my SL viewer 2.1 -experience better!

*marine*

I really saw this dress in an RL shop the other day! Soo funny … well actually it’s not that strange, cause SL designers use RL designs for inspiration all the time. Although for ‘marine’ pretty much all the inspiration you need is the color ‘blue’! Lol.. enjoy xxx ^^.
