Pretty McFly for a White Girl…or something like that. Rocking out all the Back to the Future themed items at this session of My Attic. Channeling my inner Madonna, and doing some skater looks with combinations of different pieces…so much fun to mix and match at this round.

Most of the clothing is HUD controlled, the top and skirt by Somni has hud options for different colours, and I am especially in love with the bronze tones on the metalics top – not shown as I was paler in this skin tone for that kind of look. The Madonna skin appliers for the Lelutka head is awesome, comes with different make up options and a bare face, which is great.

The jacket by Even Flow has so many options of texture changing, you could be there for hours, but such a groovy jacket. It even has a tshirt off option, and if you have been paying attention, I often wear no shirt under jackets, just the way it sort of happens, if you give me the option, it will always depend on the look over all as well. But a great option to have, as it means you can rock out either some other system layers, or appliers in my case.

Macros for Blogging and Second Life

A few years ago, I was finding it very difficult to keep typing the same things, day in and day out. I spoke to Mel about it and he recommended I use a Macro Keyboard. I jumped on it, as I had not realised that macros could also just be blocks of text, so now I not only have a Logitech G110 keyboard, but also a G13 Gamepad as well. You can see how I use it in the video, because I have so many macros, I could not show you everything, but it is easy to set up, and will be a great addition to your day to day. You will need to have sounds on to hear me in the video.

I have also used macros to name my products, as they are all essentially named the same thing, with a different number at the end. This would probably make naming lots of items a lot easier for some. I do know though you can do that in firestorm by selecting all items and writing in the name section.

I hope you find this useful for you, have a great week ahead.

I went to Junk the other day, I think I mentioned this in the past, but hit up everything I could…these are some more of the items I collected. It is fun using Gatcha and release items together, in little settings for photos…it gets them out of your inventory for a start, and you don’t have to fill a home to make beautiful spaces.

My Attic is open at the moment, and it is a big “Back to the Future” theme idea ( concept was Justice Infinity’s idea ) such a good one too, as it spans so many decades with the jumping back and forth. It is also the 30th Anniversary of the film, so yay for celebrating that. I was perusing Gizza’s Marketplace the other day, because I knew I had seen something boho’ish there in different forms, and while it is a store I actually love to visit, I just wanted them all clumped together on a page. While looking though I came across Donatella….far from boho, so sleek and gorgeous an outfit, and everything from it is mix and match heaven. I am only wearing the oversized hat – so much love for it – and the blazer that is just perfect, with some great slim boyfriend jeans from Maitreya. The Donatella set has so many pieces and the pants while unusual, were not my cup of tea, I can see using them for something in the future. The ankle boots the come with are great too, as I said the whole set is wonderful.

I did however go with the great Sicily heels by Essenz that are one of the My Attic releases, and I love the striped solid with the transparent look mixed in, very stylish.

We went to a few events actually this week, the hair and ring I have on are from The Fantasy Collective. The hair is by Entwined, who makes great hair, especially if you love long styles. The ring is part of a set by SySy’s and has individual rings you can combine together. The Clutch is from 1992 at Kustom9, and I knew I would have a use for it, just did not think so fast, but it really added to this overall look. I am stylin!

The skin I am wearing is a new one by YS&YS, this skin is actually at two events in different forms. Shiny Shabby has it in this form, and it is just lovely, and then at The Fantasy Collective, you can get the Vampire, Drow or Zafiro look, with amazing make up choices, so look out for both of those.

Hair Base Alpha & Alpha Hair TUTORIAL

Example 1

Example 2

Example 3

Example 4

With the implimentation of Mesh Heads to the grid, there are now exciting new HairBase possibilities, just like the ones I showed yesterday from LeLutka. Hairbases on mesh heads are usually their own layer, Slink Visage has a NEW Hairbase layer in their recent update in march.

While wearing hairbases is wonderful and really adds to the overall look of a style, it also gives you the oppurtunity to wear styles that are made as attachments for hairbases only. Slicked back looks and so on. Now with hairbases prior to the mesh heads, you have hairbases on the tattoo layer of your head, so all was fine and dandy.

To achieve the same look with mesh heads, the creator needed to use an alpha channel texture that means the hairbase is full of alpha, and will clash with other alpha – example, when your hair seems to cut away the windows in your house and other things – this is NOTHING to do with the hair creator doing something wrong, this is a very well known SL Bug with alpha sorting.

Hair creators will have to keep that in mind when creating new styles for the mesh head population, and some already have styles that work really well. But there are others that can be ‘fixed’ so to speak. I use the fixed word loosely, because there is nothing wrong with the hair, or how it is made, it was just created with no alpha conflicts possible at the time, but now that is more likely due to heads.

A lot of hair is still MOD, some may show no mod because of the huds they use, but if you can rez it or go into edit on it while worn, you will be able to tell. If it is no mod, then this wont work. You could contact the creator and request that they make their hair mod, as some tend to think no point with rigged hair, as you cannot move it anyway, but things like this come up, and it makes everyones life easier when the customer can do the quick ‘fix’ themselves.

This may not work for all styles, as it will depend on the style, how the alpha and other textures are created, and whether the faces line up properly. I will show you before and after pics, and explain the process.

This came about because Justice put on this first hair earlier, and was sad to see she would not be able to wear it. I thought about it, asked her to rez it and try what I was guessing ‘MAY’ work, it did…and now she can wear the hair, and I decided to share the outcome.

1. Either wear or rez the hair on the ground – depending on your editing abilities, ground may be easier for some.

2. Choose SELECT FACE in your edit menu, and then click on the area the alpha texture is on the hair. You will see in the texture window if you have an alpha selected or not, as it will not be filled in completely.

3. Change the transparency to 100 – do not use an alpha texture to do this, or you will end up in the same boat. Transparency and alpha are two different things in SL , and how they appear/sort with others differs. We are removing the alpha components by making it transparent.

4. Check you have all selected or do them one at a time, if there is more on the hair attachment or hair that conflicts with the hairbase layer.

5. Close edit and gaze at yourself, and say things like “Dayum I am the hotness!”

6. IM all your friends and repeat the words of step 5 to them.

7. Go through your whole hair inventory, and find every style that this will work with. Now you have more hair to wear :) and also know what will work with styles you come across in the future, make sure always that the hair is Modify.

I did some GIFs to watch the process also

The hairs I am wearing in this post are Aida by Wasabi Pills, Ellie by Lelutka, Swish Ponytail (part of full hairstyle) by Lelutka, Cachet Ponytail (part of full hairstyle) by Lelutka

Ciara II

Adding to the Undivided section of LeLutka, are the NEW hairbase Huds and hair attachments. Each pack has three attachments, and each pack contains 3 – 4  hairpack textures, so it’s a steal. Not only do you get three attachments, but if you love trying everything with everything like I do, you can mix the cornrows bun style that is supremely elegant, and the long version together, to get this beautiful mix.

You must have a Lelutka mesh head to be able to use these hairbase huds, as they only apply the textures to that head. Other than the cornrows style, you also have the option of the shaved base set, that has such a cool shave that it could be worn on its own also.

Beautiful hair, and stunning jewellery by Mandala, and the latest release of the Milla skin appliers for the LeLutka heads by League. I felt like I was coming home putting on this appliers set. Over the years I have worn hundreds if not thousands of skins…and there have always been only a handful of stores that owned my body for long stretches of time, one of them is League, and I am so glad to have the head to toe package now – now she just has to also release Slink Visage appliers and I will be stoked.

Rainy Days of Winter

I am Gatcha’d out today, we hit up the fantasy gatcha fair in the early hours of the US morning, and then hit up Junk and bought everything in sight. Not only the gatcha’s but also the fantastic pieces available for purchase. This city lights behind me, is actually a small lamp, but as it is mod, bigger is better.

We were waiting for the ItGirls skin to be released for the LeLutka heads, and they did not disappoint, loving the severity of the whole look, very glamorous. It also comes with the Slink physique and hands and feet appliers included, so that was a bonus big time.
