My experiments and I are back! I gathered so much stuff in the past days that I will never be able to blog everything...events, new releases, special deals, gifts, things on Second Life run too fast! It took me a week to put together all this, so *Imperio* read!
Top & Skirt: The Sea Hole - Annis Top, (barley Sheer) mauve & Smocked Skirt - Coral - they are sold separatedly, they're available as an ensemble in the same color or you can mix and match among the offered colors as I did. The top comes in 2 versions, barely transparent and very transparent, and the skirt comes upper lace and lower lace versions. 103L + 117L.
Since I logged in on Firestorm to try the new copy-to-clipboard-worn-stuff feature, at this point I decided to try shadows again. They are still unsupported, as the viewer itself warns us when enabling them, but I'm stubborn...and I managed to take this close up to show you better the lovely hairstyle...
...but then I dared too much...I knew it was better not to move my camera with shadows enabled, but I did it anyway. I took the pic, hit on save...and crashed! I was lucky enough to get this closeup on the shoes. The windlight setting I had on for the headshot messes up a bit the skin matching but I swear it was very good!! I worked a lot on that and I was very pround, but I didn't feel brave enough to try again... So I disabled shadows and relogged to take the rest of the pics!
Sandals:KIWI - Zimra Flat Sandal Black - 60L. This sculpt has been around for a while and since I'm a fan of the flat sandals, a bit neglected in favor of heels, I tried some of them even though I'm not crazy for the sculpt itself. This is the best achievement I have seen so far, it comes with a hud for skin, nails and toe ring (quite easy to use) and it's part of the Sixty Lindens Weekend.
After giving a little break to my graphic card (the poor thing was hitting 75°C, no wonder each SL viewer crashed after 2 minutes), I'm slowly trying to catch up with all the stuff I left behind.
For obvious reasons, my shadows experiments are temporarily suspended: I managed to take a pic with enabled shadows at Truth District (that is a really amazing sim and it will be a great setting for pics once the crowd is gone) but after the overheating I didn't dare to enable them again. Now, yesterday I installed the new Firestorm beta, so I'll probably try again at some point...wish me luck!
Talking of Truth District, some of the most amazing designers on the grid have a spot there. I'm sure you already got all the gifts, so I'll point your attention on a store that, my bad, I didn't know, but that was instant love: The Sea Hole. I'm featuring a beautiful retro flavored dress today, but I will shop more for sure: they have a lot of the boho-vintage stuff I totally love, as well as more casual and cute styles.
In case you haven't got the gifts yet (but I don't think so...), they are still available at the moment I'm writing here.
