Pretty As A Postcard

This look reminded me of one of those old kitschy Hawaiian postcards, you know the ones with the iconic hula girl image on them with something like “Aloha” or “Wish you were here” on them.  When summer’s not here I want to run off to a nice island somewhere and when summer is here I still want to live on an island just so I can jump in the ocean whenever I want to cool off.  I’ve never even lived on or visited an island so maybe this is a fantasy landlocked people have?  I live about 30 minutes from Lake Erie which is huge, but it’s so polluted I might grow a third arm from swimming in it.

Speaking of water there’s a new interactive story/game sim open called Mizu.  There’s some shopping with exclusive items and if you’re going through the story don’t forget to grab a HUD in english or japanese, open through July 7th.

The Kawaii Project Is Purrfect

That’s right, it’s time for all us cat lovers to get our butts over to Kawaii Project and overload on adorable cat themed items.  A lot of it seems to be rezzable or holdable cats, but I also saw shoes, lingerie, and this hair that is too cute for words.

The sim I chose for this photo is owned by my friend Mina and is set up to resemble a cute little seaside village with several cafes, a pier, and even a little farmer’s market.  It is open to the public and great for photos.

The Skin I’m In

Look at that, I’m alive after all!  I haven’t been on SL much over the past two months or so since my dad was told he had pneumonia.  Nothing has gotten better and he has three doctors trying to make him into a human guinea pig so I’ve been helping him out a lot more since he still refuses to slow down.  I still won’t be on much, but I’ll try to blog more often than every 2 months.  :P

Kawaii Project & Level Up

I’ve been shopping again, and the major thing  I bought this month is what I shall call my first real mesh head.  I’ve gotten a few mesh heads out of gacha machines, but not a whole lot of options with those.  I debated over buying a head from Tsg because her heads only work with her skin tones unless you magically find something really close, but at the same time her faces are so different from everyone else’s that I just can’t see how they’d ever look right on say an SLink head anyway.  You can find Dakota only at the Skin Fair, available in all tones. (open through March 29th)  My favorite thing about this head is actually not all the expressions and makeups, it’s the hairbase button on the HUD that lets you tint your hairbase AND eyebrows to ANY color you need.  More and more hair creators seem to think a lot of bare forehead is a good thing, I disagree and need hairbases!

The next place I raided was The Kawaii Project because where else would I go really?  I believe this event is every other month with this round ending April 10th, so still plenty of time.  I bought this cute little dress there from Vincue for way too much, but it does come with a HUD for retexturing the straps, bow, and ruffles.  I also got this really cute updo there from Ploom.  This is the least Ploom-looking hair yet, and I mean that in the best way possible.  She’d adding precious curls and cute lil flyaways to her hair lately that I just love!

Dialin’ Up Spring

So, it’s finally March and hopefully that means I’ll see the ground underneath all this white stuff soon.  The weatherman says it’s going to get above freezing for the next few days, but most days I could stick my head out the window and give a better weather report than they do.  Luckily on SL it can be any season at anytime, so I’ll just hide out here until Spring finds me in rl.

You may have noticed that I have a teeny tiny gacha addiction and if you haven’t this post will make that very evident.  Most of the gacha items are from the Luck of the Irish gacha event which opens March 10th and runs for the rest of the month. (LM to be added once event opens)

All of us unique

We were all born unique little unicorns rare and special.  No one can think your thoughts or see through your eyes, but some seem to forget this as they get older and feel they have to prove how different and original they are.  Stop shouting about it and just BE it.  On the flipside of this people need to remember that the world does not revolve around them, there are others here and you can’t think their thoughts or see through their eyes either.  Since we can’t all love eachother at least learn to be civil and tolerant.

C.C. Kre-ations @ Oneword

Well, I took a little timeout to get some rl shit sorted and to work on my photo issues in Firestorm, but I’m back I think.  I still have photo issues though.  I’ve tried updating graphics card drivers, re-installing Firestorm, and changing photo size, but nothing has worked.  Every time I turn on “advanced lighting model” for photos it looks fine inworld with little to no lag, but when I open the photo outside of SL all I get is a black screen where my pic should be.  If anyone has advice on fixing this I’d love to hear it.
