how to achieve an ersatz shine

Oh that’s nice jewellery. Wherever can it be from? WELL, READ ON. Two things. First, this is notice that, for a number of exceptionally good reason, MetaTheodora, which you may or may not know is sian’s Second Life shop, will soon be no more. In its pl…

it’s the sun

“Look at you with your colour co-ordination,” said Kitti. SUMMER FUN! sian doesn’t know what it’s like where you are, but round here it’s pretty fine right now, so shehe thought, hey, let’s do something sunny and garish and primary coloured and urban (…

the sunlight on my skin

.It was only in sian’s last post, less than a fortnight ago, that sian approached the prospect of a mesh head. Even since then, things have moved on. The SkinShop’s feet and head have received an update and are now fitted mesh; and there’s now a curren…

MEMO 21712/b
1. Due to the issues they caused our internal messaging systems, we will not be accepting reports of sexual harassment until Q3 of the next financial year.
2. In anticipation of our upcoming work with the Applied Energistics Department, we ask that all resources refrain from use of the term ‘Neo-Fascist’ in a pejorative sense.

Recently, sian has been consumed by an epic folly, the building of a roleplay hangout. Wait, RP is dead in SL, surely? (Unless you want to go somewhere and get some rapey action, obviously.) No, listen, the idea was to create a space where people from other settings, pre-existing characters, could visit, maybe bringing their own stories with them, which then they could take back to whatever usual haunts remained. Post-apocalyptic, fantastical, whatever.

So here we have the BaC® Conflict Management Centre™ (here’s the SLURL), which is a privately-owned facility where individuals from any political persuasion, planet, species or timestream can beam down, and work, discuss their problems in a mature and relaxed manner, and take advantage of our pool and spa facilities (and upcoming hotel facilities too). Thing, is who are you going to get to run a wholly neutral facility? Easy. You farm it out to the highest bidder. You get the brands in.

indefinite transition

indefinite transition (i)
The house is the Centauri Skypod by Barnesworth Anubis, and the chair the NYU/Marukin Kin chair, both from the February Collabor88.

Transitioning. It’s all very well playing with the physicality of the feminine form, unconvincing breast implants and all, but the fact is, sian is changing, and that unambiguous femininity is becoming less and less of a thing for sian, less comfortable, less real. Which is an odd thing to say; sian has never pretended to be real in the first place. But sian’s gender-ambivalence, shehe’s mascfem fuzziness, has, in the past month or two, become firm, solidified. You could say shehe’s got Schrödinger’s Genitalia, if the reference made any sense. Which it doesn’t really.

Does this make sense? Let’s try again. It used to be that sian’s creator would log in and say, “Today sian is going to be male,” or “Female today, then,” or occasionally even “How about a hermaphrodite?” (that link is even more NSFW than usual, so click at your peril) but recently sian has left the latex and the curves to other avs. Neither he nor she now, shehe made the choice to transition… and remain on the cusp.

To have shehe’s virtual cake and eat it? Yeah, a bit.

sian made the little angel and devil as statues from a very slightly simplified version of the mesh shehe used to make the avs.

sian makes custom mesh
It’s true

sian has been asked by a good half-dozen people in the last few weeks if she’ll make custom meshes. The answer is yes.

sian can do clothing, fantasy and sci-fi things (and in fact sci-fi and fantasy clothing and objects are what sian is best at), full avatars, attachments, scenic elements. What sian won’t do is extreme adult/explicit bdsm fetish stuff (anymore), stuff based on real-world oppressions (read: no Nazi stuff), or stuff that’s designed to look like things other people have made, which last couple things should be obvious, but sometimes you’d be surprised what people will ask for.

sian doesn’t ask for overly restrictive licenses (essentially, it all boils down to: don’t sell it or give it away full perm or Copy/Trans and we’re golden) and you get the .dae files and if you need them the instructions on how to use them.

Prices start at L$40,000 or £100 Sterling for a one-day project, and may be negotiated depending on complexity. sian loves a challenge.

Contact sion.pearl inworld or by FlickrMail, or find sian on Plurk or Facebook.
