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.

The Breakfast at Tiffany’s Hunt!

Greetings fashionably fabulous ones!

My  post today is ALL about The Breakfast at Tiffany’s Hunt!  This hunt is based on the classic movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s starring Audrey Hepburn.  It’s one of those movies that stands the test of time and did it with fashionable flair.  I won’t give away to many details of the movie, in this post, just in case you want to watch it.  The link I am providing, for The Breakfast at Tiffany’s Hunt, will take you to the page that will give you photos of the hunt items from each creator, SLURLS and hints.  The hunt consists of clothing and home decor items…which I will feature today.  ALL items in the hunt are FREE.

In the first shot I am showing the fabulous outfit from Brii Underground Wear (#5 on the hunt list) and it includes the jacket, pencil skirt, glasses (not worn), makeup (not worn), peeptoe shoes (not worn) and hat.  The Suitcase with Telephone is from Resplendent Rose (#9 on the hunt list) and the projector, table, extra movie reels, tub sofa, cat with no name, record player and projector screen are all part of the Audrey Cinema Set hunt gift from Arcana Antiques & Oddities (#15 on the hunt list).  The cigarette holder, from Bloody Mess, is no longer available.  My Zebra Peeptoe Heels, worn in all photos, are from Babydoll (#95 on the hunt list) for the Sexy and I know it Hunt.  The Sexy and I know it Hunt ended on May 18th but the hunt symbol and shoes were still there when I checked earlier today!

Next we have an outfit from Vips Creations (#42 on the hunt list)…this oufit comes with the pearl necklace, bracelets for left and right wrist, pearl ring (Jewelry not worn), glasses, polkadot dress, clutch, opera gloves & heels (not worn).  The Audrey hair, I’m wearing in all photos, is from Ali&Ali (#21 on the hunt list), the tiara with earrings are the hunt item from Redrose Jewllry (#22 on the hunt list) and the pearl necklace and bracelets are the hunt gift from Eye Candi (#10 on the hunt list).  The Tiffany Tea Table is the hunt gift from Peachy (#53 on the hunt list) and includes the table, chairs and all the sweet goodies on the table.  *I’ll be featuring the rug and Audrey room divider in other photos.
