No more, I’m done! (FREEBIES & Mention of FREEBIES).

I have no one else to blame but myself because I didn’t have to go to the Gacha Garden and yet I still went!  The thought of all those gifties just sat there waiting was too much temptation.  Don’t worry as you’ve got till the 28th and it’s all lovely and quiet now so you should have a really nice time picking up oodles of freebies and maybe also a few treats from the Gacha’s. However, NOTHING in this picture is one of the freebies from this event. Often I leave events with not just gifts or wins but also LMs to shops which look interesting and I want to go check them out and that’s how I ended up at “moss&mink”. There is a lot going on in this picture so I will take you through it step by step. That backdrop is stunning, designed to perfection from the paper like flowers to the ribbons draped on the floor.  The full sized one is I think 9Lds and of course I checked, copy and mod, woohoo.  So I shrank one down to a cute size but I haven’t RIPPED it apart yet to see if I can use those ribbons and flowers but I’m looking forward to doing just that when I get back in as I love tearing things apart LOL. … Read the rest

She turned to the sunlight and shook her yellow head, and whispered to her neighbor: “Winter is dead.”

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“She turned to the sunlight And shook her yellow head, And whispered to her neighbor: "Winter is dead.”

Fingers Crossed

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“You don't have to be a big name to do big things.
