Serial Renter

In Fashion, Second Life, Translucent Journey · Tags
When I first came on SL (for better or worse--it's still debatable), I was surprised to find out that people rented or owned land for residential purposes. So, you know, I had to jump on that bandwagon!

The first place I rented was a small, one room cottage. It was adorable and cheap. I don't remember the exact amount but it was probably less than 100L. And then one day, I tp'd to my cottage and *poof* it was gone. In fact all six cottages were gone and the only thing that remained was an empty plot of land. But the landlord sent us all a notecard and gave us a refund on our rent (actually, I don't remember if she did either of these things but I would hope that she did). I wish I had images of my first place but unfortunately, I trashed many of those early pics the first time I um...left SL.

The second place I rented was a room/small apartment at the GQ Start which was a great place for noobs. GQ held classes, had an active staff of mentors and a freebie store. I took classes on animations, organizing your inventory and flirting/dating in SL.… Read the rest

Out in the rain

I saw so many bloggers join Luna Jubilee's 52 Weeks of Color Challenge. It's good challenge but I have one major problem, I wear what I want and I don't follow much rules. I'm so sorry about this. Since I was a little bit too late to jump into the bandwagon, I made my own theme. Well it's not my first time on having one colour theme outfit in this blog. So far I have green, pink, black, and purple. My styling notes and more story

52 weeks of colour – Plum (and lighthouses)

It snowed here in Provence this week.


And no, didn't look pretty. Dark, billowy clouds and grey skies - a good time to pull out a lovely plum sweater for the challenge and trim it up a little.

Then off for a wander around Vent du Sud to see the big lighthouse in winter dusk.

In fact, it made me want to pop in a few bits of furniture and a fire...

(Yes, the Vent du Sud plumgasm line, how did you guess).

Yes, 1L.





But no, I just watched the snow fall a little more.


Vent du Sud has three beautiful lighthouses for  new, amazing  build prices of 50L. Please fly around and look: there's a luxury model with roomy interior and decks, a smaller one, plus an offsim one. All 23 prims or less. 

The textures... well just go look!

Plus of course our furniture and decor all at 1L (including... plum but lots more)

Fashion: Morgan hair by Truth, MG sweater 'hunting season' in plum, gloves and socks by Picnic (also deep plum) with an extra: fur cuffs from a Zagoskin ski jacket. And my favourite J's round toe boots.… Read the rest

Depth of field, hotkeys, pink hair & leather

Let me start this post by saying the following snapshots came straight out of SL, with absolutely no post-processing. Not even cropping. Depth of field is now in SL! I first got wind of this fun new feature via Plurk; Aki Shichiroji started a thread on the SLU forums about this and shared details on how to enable it. To play with this shiny new toy, you must use one of the super beta mesh viewers that are build 2.4 215482, or newer. I was using 215482 for these photos; when I installed the viewer, depth of field was already enabled as soon as I logged in with it. If you decide to give this a try, I strongly recommend you read that thread on the forums because Aki explains which three debug settings you have to fiddle with, and what they do. (Note:  Your hardware must be capable of enabling shadows in order for you to use this feature.) While I’m on the subject of photography, I just wanted to add something about using the zoom hotkeys Ctrl + 0 and Ctrl + 8. There was a discussion on my Plurk timeline the other day about this.… Read the restPlaying with depth of field feature

Seaside Picnic

I know it's cold out now for a good chunk of the world but I got this dress from The Sea Hole and couldn't wait for the summer to wear it. It's not a new release or anything but look! Picnic foods! The ants are an animated texture so they walk around and around the skirt. How cute is that?

Cast of Characters

On 28th November 2010 · By Atia Merryman-Jameson · With Leave a comment
In Atia Creations, Fashion, Second Life
Following the ATIA CREATIONS theme of variety in shapes, at long last I’m unveiling my “cast of characters” as I like to call them. The following six avatar shapes were developed over the last 3 years out of utter weariness with seeing the same cookie-cutter shapes and typical age range (20-30) of the vast majority of avatars strolling around in SL. I believe other SL denizens are getting a bit bored as well based on the reaction some of my characters get when they’re out ‘n about. Gladys in particular, always commands a positive response. Maybe that's as much about the incongruence of her appearance vs. her attitude - she needs to be seen inworld to be appreciated!

If we’re all perfect and beautiful, where’s the relativity so necessary to make life interesting? I have to admit that I’m guilty of developing gorgeous, young avatars just like many other shape makers but I also love to see the rare, and well-developed exception. So here’s my first offering of unique avatar shapes.… Read the rest

Bob Cratchit

On 27th November 2010 · By Sredni Eel · With Leave a comment
In Avatar Bizarre, Second Life
It's that time of year. Christmas is in the air, there's a bite to the wind, and snow drifts in the great city of Babbage. It's time for a Dickenian flare to your wardrobe with our venerable hero, Bob Cratchit. Like every poor working drudge, he only wants to spend time with his family and friends on the holiday, but without even getting paid overtime, he's stuck at the office crunching numbers.

It's cold and musty, and a dim oil lamp bathes the mound of paperwork in a pale orange glow. He can see his breath fogging in front of him as he huddles close to the wan flame of the lamp, trying to keep himself warm and his spirit bright.

Here's the latest new outfit from Avatar Bizarre, a tribute to a Dickens hero.
It includes:

Top hat
Shirt
Shirt collar with cravat
Coat
Coat collar
Scarf
Waistcoat
Shirt cuffs
Coat cuffs
Pants
Pants cuffs
Shoes
There's a splash of holiday color for this poor working man; a touch of green on his shabby coat, and a splash of red around his neck. This entire ensemble is modify and copy so you can be sure it fits YOU!… Read the rest

Plumgasm, and thank you and FAQ

This was me yesterday, up above Vent du Sud, deciding to make a few things in plum (yes, I got a little carried away). And there is more to come but I kept popping different colours in the bedding to give you more choice...


It will be in the store for the weekend (and YES all at 1L) like the rest. Or if you're in a hurry, fly up 500m from the Vent du Sud square and help yourself.

This, for instance - and the lamp works! 1L only
 

Which leads me to a very short FAQ after several questions and a little mushiness after some lovely comments and questions over the last few days...(thank you thank you thank you!)

Is this a sale?
No. It's indefinite and probably permanent.

Do I still get customer service?
Sure do. There are times when RL work is frantic, but I do get back to people.

What permissions?
Mostly copy or mod/copy. Not transfer or full perm, sorry.

Are you going to leave the same stuff out or add new?
LOTS of new. See the photo above. I'll be moving things around, changing them, trying to improve.… Read the rest
