Home and Garden Expo – ready to go!

I have a bad restless heart syndrome because of everything new and upcoming. My favorite event, The Home and Garden Expo is here again! My Casa Limited Edition Pavilion has new fountain and flower decorations and at the evenings my sky bubble turns into the musical playground with flower garden piano. I actually enjoy so much listening to the fountains I turned my home radio off.Rose fountain

while writing, I was listening The Lovin’ Spoonful – Daydream

I don’t usually wear many accessories but today I wanted to overact my outfit. And I love how colorful and playful it is!

I am still selling my land, and while waiting, I live at the rose skybox and have also very tiny (32 m) but comfortable skydome.

Body and Soul

mesh project body hand and feet

The Mesh Project mesh body is absolutely lovely. Mostly I love it because all poses look much more smoother and natural – I hate hate hate when my arms and legs have sharp angles. The Mesh Project feet are small enough and hands are very pretty.

But like many others, I find shopping at the Shops very confusing experience. The area is all white and it is so slow to find things. After shopping, wearing you Style HUD is also annoying, sometimes I have to detach it and wear it again because the HUD is so very slow or freezes completely.

And clothing…yes I like my body and yes I like to show it, but when I go to dance or shop or explore I really would like to wear my own clothing instead of that cocktail dress which you can have free from the Shops.

Thumbs up for the Mesh Project. It is great to have free mesh body options, although I am now considering SLink version – just because I am so excited to have smoother body and it is too painful to use old body after trying mesh body in action. I have tough decision to make: do I wait non-beta version of The Mesh Project body (which I think is prettier…) or do I buy SLink body (I do have SLink feet and hands already).

Playing with the DAZ Studio

Every time I take photos in SL I get frustrated with poses –  finding perfect one is almost impossible or it takes time. I have always wanted to make my one poses but after trying a few pose tools I gave up. At the weekend I finally found DAZ Studio: it is quite easy to use and it is FREE! Making a pose is so easy my 12 years old made one just from the scratch. Voilá, his first pose for mommy was ready after 10 minutes. He made very dramatic pose as you can see (first pic) 🙂

My own poses (yes dear but hurry up and i want to spin like a ivy ball) are quite simple. I read Jyicy’s great tutorials (part 1 and part 2) and after that I was able to make mirror poses also. Especially exporting the poses to the Second Life is super fast and easy!

Few tips: 1) remember to check “loop” when exporting, otherwise your pose will last only few seconds, 2) make sure your avatar’s feet are on the ground, 3) when you click body parts, first find a white point and a yellow circle around it and you can rotate body part freely.
