Hello from The Big Easy! Dya’s Southern Twilight is a photogenic New Orleans inspired region.
For my outfit today, I am pairing the newly released Malika Bralet & Willow Mixed Jacket from The Secret Store with an older release, the Elaine Scallop Shorts. A few weeks ago, I was watching Maylee Oh on Twitch live-stream creating this jacket, and now I’m wearing it! Maylee is a multi-talented creator, not only does she create beautiful outfits in Second Life, but she’s also a prolific artist in real life.
I wish Genus would update their HUD, cos it’s definitely not well-designed and still lack essential features. Compared to other mesh heads, how do you rank the Genus HUDs? Which brand, in your opinion, has the best HUD?
Now that I have assigned caregivers for my baby, it’s time to lounge in this gorgeous new release from The Secret Store. I’m wearing the Fawn Bodysuit & Cleo Lacey Vest, both available at Collabor88. I found the perfect wavy hair to go with this chill boho look, it’s the Avalon style from Exile.
What I’m Wearing:
Exile – Avalon hair
Pink Fuel – Kiera
The Secret Store – Cleo Lacey Vest, Fawn Bodysuit @ Collabor88
Hello virtual neighbors! I have decided to decorate the inside of my Linden home. At first I had planned on using all of the prims outside, for landscaping and exterior decor, but after seeing other residents using their 351 prims wisely, I realized that I wasn’t being efficient. I am still using nearly 200 prims outside, but as I decorate the rooms in my home, I will remove landscaping and replace high-prim items with lower prim ones.
Every home needs a nice living room, it’s usually the first thing people see. I love the Vida Sofa Set from Cheeky Pea. The set includes a texture HUD to change the colors of the sofa & pillows (8 presets), so it would work with lots of interior styles. The entire set is only 46 land impact! (Does anyone know the difference between li and prims?) I aim to use only 50 prims for each room, so I can decorate all the rooms in my home. I added a planter and a few knick-knacks on the shelf, and this room is complete.
My decorating skills are quite low in SL. I don’t like clutter, and I also can’t remember all the things that are in my inventory. This however, works out perfectly in a Linden home. For the sake of being able to rez things quickly, let’s not overload our homes!
After I arranged my decor, I had to do a fresh re-install of Second Life cos my textures kept refreshing constantly. It was a nightmare! I know my computer is quite old (if I tell you how old it is, you will be shocked – hint: it’s almost as old as my blog), but I can usually rez just fine on private sims. I blame my neighbors for this! Being on a shared public sim is difficult, especially with everyone trying to decorate their homes to the brim.
After I did my re-install of Second Life, things were a little better. I decided NOT to adjust the debug settings. Back in the day, it was recommended to adjust rendervolumelodfactor and some other things, to get mesh to render correctly and not be a blob. I’ve been thinking about it, and we have come a long way since the early mesh days. Creators need to optimize their stuff, cos most SL residents don’t even know about the Advanced menu. If I have to adjust debug settings for your things to render correctly, then I do not want them. So my SL experience going forward, will just be whatever the default settings are.
I just found this outfit from The Secret Store in my inventory, that’s how much of a wreck my inventory is right now. I love it! The reason I’m wearing this teal color is cos my new sofa also comes in this exact shade!! If you ever wanted to match your furniture, here’s your chance.
What I’m Wearing:
Pink Fuel – Kiera (Biscuit) for LeLutka
Truth – Surrender
The Secret Store – Fiona Belted Skirt, Samantha Blazer
I don’t always play skin gachas, but I’m thrilled that Pink Fuel’s skin is for Lelutka! I’m wearing the new Emiri skin from Pink Fuel, available at The Epiphany. Available in 3 skin tones – Crystal, Latte, and Peach, so I guess only the most popular tones are available, to keep things simple. I’m wearing Peach here. This skin seems younger than Kiera, so if you’re looking for a more doll skin from PF, this is the perfect skin. Only $75L/per play, it’s an inexpensive way to try out a new skin!
What I’m Wearing:
Pink Fuel – Emiri LeLutka Skin Applier (Peach)
Exile – Julie
Teefy – Ashley Top (White)
The Secret Store – Meya Leather Pants
Ingenue – Guilia Heels
