Happy Valentine’s Day!

Internet dating can be rough. You never know what you get when you meet somebody. The man has send you nice pic of himself but reality strikes when you meet.  What the heck…this is not the guy! Or wait! he is, but he is 10 years older! Do you run out of the door? No, because you are too polite to do that.

So I hang out here, at the old barn, dressed up, and waiting something honest and real.oldbarn Carox

DIY poses and projector

I always want to try new tips and tricks in SL. My latest project is learn how to make poses and light projector of your own. Pose making I have tried before with Animare (years ago) and DAZ (last summer), now I tested QAvimator.

I have never before really understood what means graphics–> lightning “sun, moon and projectors”. I run to few articles about the projector lights and immediately made my own. It is quite easy if you have the basic knowledge of building and editing. I read Inara Pey’s brilliant tutorial about lightning projectors and Cajsa Lilliehook’s tutorial about lightning, shadows and projectors. Very useful tutorials both!

My first projector is rather simple with a grunge texture. The trick for powerful shadows is to find proper distance and altitude for the projector. Windlight matters also: darker ones work much better with projectors.

My first pose is DIY, basic pose, very me’ish. The second pose is from my Semotion AO stand collection and the third one is DIY: this pose was meant to be combination of a victory march and classic We can do it -posters. I am pretty satisfied how it looks so bye-bye, I am off to make new poses and projectors…projectorpose_001

Sommaren är kort

I was little afraid me going to the Home & Garden Expo because I just recently bought a new house and did not want to buy new one again. On the other hand I have not so much money to spend right now. First I was totally lost and not so very excited when I arrived Expo Area 1 AND of course I crashed few times and was almost giving up BUT when I finally made my way to the Home Expo Area 2 I was in heaven. So much great stuff: houses, furniture, plants. I spend all the money I had – not much – but it is money well spent.

homegarden_001After a long time I finally put trees and rocks and plants and grass back to my grass bubble. I don’t have lots of prims so occasionally I have to delete something if I want more furniture etc. Now I wanted to see summery green also in SL (I love tree shadows on my house floor!) and made a path to the grass/flower/plant area. These flagstone pavers from [ba] are genious, just make copies and plan your path. My path is short – prim limit again! – and I also deleted one railing of the porch that I can go straight to the pavers.

homegarden_002Something weird is happening to me… I have recently bought pink, green and blue items. When I saw this blueish wall art piece I just had to have it. The painting and a flower vase including texture change menu (I have no idea why I have red flowers on this pic, they should be yellow) are both from wonderful shop called JoHaDeZ.

PS. My title is in swedish, meaning “summer is short”. It really is, so let’s enjoy it inworld and IRL outdoors:)
