Mesh Around Hunt Previews 2!

Yesterday I told you about the Mesh Around Hunt. Here are a few more items you will find! Hunt starts June 1 and goes through the 15th, so get your monocles and bloodhounds ready!

Isn’t the dress cute!? Also in the pack is one called [melon] and it is WATERMELON colored. It instantly reminded me of Torley Linden, remember him?

This necklace is so cute, too- look, it’s a tiny little panda! It is mesh, but not rigged, so it is re-sizable and re-positionable.

I also wanted to mention this fun expression HUD that I picked up on marketplace. It can change your hand and eye position and it has a variety of facial expressions- AND IT’S FREE! It’s a really useful tool, and you can grab it here.

Culture Shock 2012 & Summer Beauty Festival

Hey guys! I am SO EXCITED to tell you about some big events going on right now in SL!

First is Culture Shock. It’s this great event celebrating the different cultures of SL residents and creators through fashion, art and music. The sim opened to bloggers, and let me tell you- it is really cool. All sorts of amazing vendors with exclusive items! I think the best part is that 50-100% of every vendor’s profits will be going to Médecins Sans Frontières, so not only do you get to shop for some great stuff but you’re also helping out a great cause!

Culture Shock will be open from May 4- 26. In the photo credits, I’ll asterisk (*) each item that you can find at CS!

Also happening now is the Summer Beauty Festival, which features some great cosmetic items! The festival opened May 1st and will be open till the 25th. I will note the SBF items in the credits with a double asterisk (**).

Credits after break! Continue reading

Sailors Take Warning

The new collection is out at The Dressing Room Blue! This dress immediately caught my attention. It is absolutely lovely. The only thing I was disappointed about was that I normally wear an XS in standard sizing, but there was no XS option in the pack. I modded my shape to a size S and the dress fit just fine, though. It was definitely worth the little bit of extra effort to wear this great dress. Also, I recently bought this new Magika hair. If you haven’t tried Magika yet, I honestly don’t know what you are waiting for. It is so well done, there are such cute styles… just… go. Go check it out.

Issues!

Hey guys! This is a pretty simple post today because I’ve been having odd buggy issues with my graphics for the last 2 days. For some reason, when shadows are enabled, parts of my hair go missing. It is so weird. Also, on my high-res snapshots, the shadows are all messed up. Here is a look at some photos I took, one with mesh hair, one with non-mesh hair. You can see where the hair is disappearing in some spots and the shadows are completely missing in sections of the snapshots.

So, after 2 days of this nonsense, I downloaded Exodus viewer because I heard it is great for photos. The same thing happened. I reached out to my Plurk friends, and someone suggested I do a full wipe and complete reinstall of Firestorm. I did, but it still didn’t fix the problem. I am baffled. So, for now, I am tired and without shadows. I did take a few more non-buggy shots (sans shadows) of this new {mon tissu} dress, though:

It is seriously so cute. Super well done, and the textures are amazing.

So, there ya have it. If anyone out there has any idea what the shadows issue is caused by, or how to fix it I would LOVE to know! If/when I find a fix, I will definitely do a follow-up post.

*UPDATE: I also updated my drivers, but no dice. Still searching.*

French Toast

Soooooo, Vive 9 was a little late setting up at Collabor88 so I didn’t see this dress first time I was there. I actually saw someone else wearing it and HAD to know where it was from. Of course, I ran straight over to grab it! Same thing with this hair- someone else was wearing it and I was like OMG WHERE IS THAT HAIR FROM!? It’s from Wasabi Pills, and it has color-change clips and hair ties. I love it very much. Vive 9 also has an adorable hair available at Collabor88, but you’ll have to go check it out for yourself!

Grape Juice

Just a quick peek at an adorable, comfy little mesh dress from Strip’d for you today! Also, a pose I picked up from Olive Juice at pose fair *happy dance*! I have barely scratched the surface of what is at Pose Fair, but I did pick up a great pose hud for 99L at estetica. I love it, it’s so simple. I actually heard about it from Ohna, so I will let you click through and read what she had to say about it. Personally, I love it. I also FINALLY got these Beetlebones Mesh Lashes, and they really are as great as Harlow said they are.

I Know Places

I know places we can go, babe.

Have you ever tried a store once, not found what you wanted, then never gone back? I tried !lamb hair YEARS ago and didn’t feel like it looked good on me, so I never went back. Well, here I am to say that I was wrong for giving up so easily. I am absolutely in love with this hair. She even has some new mesh hairs out!

I picked up this dress from The Sea Hole during the Truth District Sale, so I got it super discounted (score)! It’s so cute, though, it’s definitely worth grabbing at full price. They have a lot of really unique things there- go check it out!

Oui, chérie!

April Collabor88 is here!! Everything has a French theme, and it’s all SO cute! There is some really great furniture, tons of great clothes, skins… I wanted it ALL! The theme just inspires such adorable things. I contained myself, though. This girl’s got a budget! I snagged this great hair from Clawtooth (the beret is part of it!) and this Nylon Outfitters dress, along with these bangles from The Sea Hole.

Once my wallet cried for mercy, I took a walk in Paris 1900. What a cool sim! I’ll give you trois guesses what it’s modeled after! I think it’d be a great place to go for a date night or just to explore with some friends. You really have to go there and see it for yourself.
