Cape Florida Lighthouse and Park

Cape Florida Lighthouse and Park

Hello from Cape Florida Lighthouse and Park! This sim is inspired by a real place in Florida, USA. I love beaches, islands, lush vegetation, and this sim has it all! My outfit today is a mix of two items from Teefy – the Marissa Top (@Collabor88 June) and Mika Skirt (@Uber May).

I’m wearing the new Drive Fast hairstyle from Exile. Exile just introduced Style HUDs to the newer hairstyles, and I couldn’t be happier! I’m so glad that this is a thing now with hair designers. With mesh clothing, I have found it necessary to be able to flip my hair so it doesn’t intersect with clothing.

Hello from the seaside! I love this gorgeous Jaya Top from Teefy (available at Uber). Available in soft pastel colors and vibrant prints, this top also includes HUDs to change the ruffle colors on the sleeves and bottom ruffle, or turn them off entirely. I like this option a lot, since it makes the top easier to pair with an assortment of pants and skirts.

Juicy – Sara // LeLutka May Bento Shape

Juicy - Sara // LeLutka May Bento Shape

It has been too long since I last made a shape! I made this shape for the LeLutka May Bento Mesh Head. I have made a handful of shapes for Simone, Chloe, and Spencer mesh heads from LeLutka – so I will probably not make any more shapes for those faces. I will try to make shapes for the ones I have not, such as May, Greer, Cate, and Bianca. I wear Chloe a lot, but they’re really all gorgeous when paired with the right skin.

Buy the Juicy Sara shape on Marketplace or in my store.

This whole look is giving me San Junipero 80’s vibes! The Merry Look gacha set from M.birdie is an 80s dream combining pinks and blues together! I am wearing the TopB paired with SkirtB. I wish I could “turn off” the attached hand bag on the top, or even better, if it came with 2 versions.

Haven you seen this dreamy Paradiso skybox & decor gacha from Haikei? I could decorate my entire sim with builds from this brand, but some of them are skyboxes. I prefer real homes with doors and porches, but brands take shortcuts and create skyboxes so they don’t have to build the exterior. There’s no rule in SL that you can’t rez a HOUSE in the sky, I do it all the time. Leave a comment down below if you want real houses!

Life in Plastic

Life in Plastic

Isn’t this hair amazing? Life in Plastic by Exile is fantastic, baby! There are so many things I want to blog about, but no time to fully research them. For example, Baked on Mesh – someone give me a summary! I am not interested in wearing old skins, or old system anything, but I think with Baked on Mesh, we can wear more layers and not rely on HUDs! I’ll play with this when I have time and blog about it in the future.

Another news that is interesting is the E2V Vendor system is retiring (self-hosted will continue running), so if you have gift cards and store credits, redeem those if they don’t transfer when merchants switch to a new vendor system. I have already received several notices from brands in SL that are able to continue using E2V. I can’t imagine how much panic this is causing on the grid, and merchants have a short time to find a new system.

Earlier this year, I had to switch my rental system to something else, since HippoTech retired. I have used Hippo since I bought my sim nearly a decade ago. I paid a small fee and got my money’s worth out of that system, so no complaints. It was easy enough to switch my rental system to something else since I have only a handful of tenants to set up.

There are so many scripted things that brands (and customers) rely on in SL, if they were to disappear suddenly, it would disrupt the market. I feel like we need to appreciate scripted things more, and pay scripters even more. They’re definitely the people who keep SL running smoothly, right behind the talented creators.
