A quickie, just to get my day started…which is kind of silly as it’s 2am here. I cannot believe it is the 17th, Christmas is only days away, and yet there is nothing really Christmasy feeling about it, unless you consider funny names on plurk and of course the decorating of sims and body, such as I have done today. But are you feeling the nostalgia, the need to find that ultimate gift for loved ones, or looking forward to as many of your family and/or friends getting together on the big day ?
As I get older, it becomes more about making sure I remember that the stores will be closed, and to be sure to order enough red bull in my next delivery. It is funny too because in the past I have shuffled my Christmas day – a day ahead of most – with being in Second Life to do customer service on Christmas Eve, a hectic last minute explosion where everything hiccups and it is all awesome – I miss customer service lots and lots, may have to do something about that in the new year.
Maybe I am still not used to being so overexposed to it so early, as soon as the halloween stuff was about to come down the thanksgiving and christmas stuff went up in Second Life, and for us down here, your thanksgiving meal is more like our Christmas, so somehow I feel like I have already had my turkey and all the fixins.
Lucky for me and other Aussies, there are designers like Dakota Buck taking care of our warmer weather needs. This weeks fifty L Friday items from Whippet & Buck are these adorable tiered skirts. The two colours that you will get are divine, and so easy to mix and match. I went with black for the pink skirt, but could have easily gone with chocolate, creams or even blues.
Moving down the legs, past The Strand socks and onto the New YS &YS Yeti boots, this is so cool, as only recently did I delete some Yeti boots from 2006-7 ish. They come in a lovely range of colours. Yeti boots are so much fun, not just because they look great, but who can not chuckle at the idea of boots made from Yeti fur…the idea that man has never caught one, but we managed to make shoes from them none the less.
The tops I am wearing come from Fri.day, the one on the left being the newer Rhapsody tunic, this is a two layered look, with the top layer having only one strap and a cute puffed sleeve attachment. I was impressed with the info in the pack letting you know that with all avs being different sizes, you may need to do some editing on the sleeve and that your AO ‘may’ effect it’s movement, due to the inability to do afull shoulder covering because of the one arm template. Many don’t realise that is how clothing is done, so that info is really nice to have provided. Another part of the top that I love is the belt, the thin mid torso belt is perfect for high waist skirts or anything really, adding an extra accent to a look, so worth the tops purchase just for the belt.
The fluffy furry stole I have on over the Dion shirt is from SDB, this stole is NOT mod though, my version isn’t anyway, so you will have to pray to the heavens that it fits. I am not sure if that is still the case with the item in the store, but yes, it’s a really pretty item, but unfortunatly with no glitch and no mod, it is not going to fit all. So if your breasts are bigger than a 65 and your larger than I look, be warned.
Speaking of warnings, the fun antlers I am wearing need a big tag hanging from them saying DON’T TOUCH MEEEE – watch that youtube it is adorable – but back to antlers lol. These come with emotes built in, so if someone clicks on you, well all sorts of things could happen in open chat, but thank goodness they do have a lock option, and they sparkle and look fabulous, and you know you want to find out what they say, let’s just put it this way. If I wasn’t partnered and Newdoll wasn’t partnered, we would have to get married now.
I have used and added another stock image to the Second Life Stock Images Group, some incredible photos have been added for people to use, I cannot wait to play with some myself. If you do use them, please mention it in comments, it is an amazing thing to know your images are helping others with their pics.
