I don’t even remember when I purchased Filter Forge
®, the popular third-party companion to PhotoShop® that lets you apply fancy filters to your photos. It was long ago, maybe 2008 or 2009. Anyway, I don’t even use PhotoShop anymore as my laptop has no CD/DVD drive to allow me to install it. With materials, shadows, mesh bodies, and all the other controls we have over our raw shots, there’s no real need for PhotoShop either, except for the super fancy portraits with painted hair and so on. I still use Filter Forge from time to time for the fun of it. I just open photos directly in the software. Anyway, it’s 80% off today
so I thought I would play with it and let you all know that it’s deeply discounted. Please note, that is an ordinary link with no clever code that gives me some compensation for promoting their software. I just have the basic package, the cheapest one, and it has everything I need. I don’t need to do pictures bigger than 3000 by 3000, so it’s enough for me.… Read the rest
Bento makes me happier than I thought it would. My happiness comes from things like these poses from Gingerfish that have Bento hand movements built right in. When Bento first came out, I was dubious, afraid that more complexity would strain my already struggling computer to the breaking point. I also moaned about one more thing to learn. I dawdled. I did not rush to buy bento hands immediately. I waited hoping it would all be figured out by someone else or even just go away. But it didn’t and both Slink and Maitreya released hands optimized for Bento and my computer did not fold over in a faint. So here we are. Animators are busy adapting and creating poses that capitalize on this new expressiveness and I am wondering why I was such a grouch about it. I guess I must be getting crotchety in my old SLage.
I kind of fell in several sorts of love with the skirt and jacket from Emery. The Stella skirt has two options with a latte stripe or a pearl stripe. The Bastet jacket has bold lapels that give it a relaxed, casual air while being very fashion conscious.… Read the rest

I planned to post this in the morning, but I got distracted. There are still three hours left to get chillaxed at Collabor88.
The Secret Store has a great romper that is every kind of adorable.
Ingenue’s sneakers are the cutest thing ever.
Then there is Monso’s delightful hair that can either be super edgy fashion forward or bedhead, your choice. Glam Affair’s Maria give me a happy face.

So, when I saw ALT by TRUTH was releasing an item called Paddington, I was expecting a coat. Who wouldn’t? Thinking about it, though, a classic crew neck sweater and button down shirt is what Jonathan and Judy would have worn. They were very proper and tucked in their shirts, but who cares about that when such a gorgeous and versatile sweater, an investment set, is released. I really appreciate it when the creator notes what items work well under
their mesh pieces. There is a color change hud that allows you to choose eleventy million (24) colors for the sweater and the shirt, plus a dozen prints and even three button colors.
So, I wanted to wear a pencil skirt and tried on a few. I chose this one from Emery because the fabric is exactly right for this outfit.
I adore these sandal pumps, they are very delicate but have the bold zipper going up the counter.
Truth released this lovely hair style with the beautifully arranged curls. It’s called Delaney and a lovely casually chic style.… Read the rest
This sign, a riff on the Borg’s mantra,made me laugh. I always just point out the Borg dies in the end. But I laugh because where I grew up, we competed against Fertile in sports and other competitions. More amusingly, Fertile happens to be just about 25 miles from Climax, another town we competed against. When you’re in high school, such things are hilarious and even to this day, pranksters add distance to Fertile signs to the “You are Entering Climax” sign and vice versa. By the way, whoever ordered “You are entering Climax” is my hero. That sign is gone now, replaced by the much less amusing “Climax Pop. 300” sign. Not that we weren’t without our own embarrassing names. A few miles out of town, there used to be a glorious road sign, “Bullshit Valley, Next Left” That was the name of the valley. That was the sign. When I was home this summer, I saw it has been “cleaned up” and now reads, BS Valley.… Read the rest
Our web site was down. Somehow there was a virus in the database. Is that not the strangest thing? I don’t know if that would affect readers or not, but thankfully it’s been fixed.
I shot these pictures last week. I was still shocked by the Orwellian phrase “alternate facts” that in a healthy society would completely discredit the people who promote them. But, since people no longer distinguish between fact and opinion, alternate facts seem to be growing. Aldous Huxley, though, had the right idea. “Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.”
I fell in love with this lovely sweater from NYU for FaMESHed
. It came with a gorgeous asymmetric skirt, too, but I wanted to show off the gorgeous ribbed waist line of the sweater and it tucked into the skirt. You can see the top and skirt together here
. But look at that beautiful ribbing at the bottom…I had to find something to wear that showed it off. The Lesha trousers from Baiastice were perfect.… Read the rest
“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always”
I am ready to resist, though if we’re marching, I have to change my shoes. Lizziah released a darling cropped sweater and skinny jeans, each in four colors. I confess cropped sweaters confuse me. Warming shoulders, chilly tummy.
It’s gorgeous. Look at the details. The super-long sleeves, the ribbed band not the sweater, the sticking o the pockets. P.S. The V pose is from Gingerfish for Bento hands. I don’t have any yet and used Slink. The other poses are from aDorkable.
Glamistry’s Azalea pumps are gorgeous. There is a HUD for all sorts of customization.
I added this fun necklace from Mandala. The nails are from Flair.
