The most perfect shoes ever

Both RL and SL my favorite shoes are clogs/wedges! These absolutely stunning clogs/wedges both have a HUD so it is very quick to change shoe colors to match your current look. Eudora 3D Ragnarok clogs (from Uber) have very realistic leather and lace textures and ArisAris Forward Wedges are so far the most amazing shoes I have ever seen in SL. Both are for SLink mid feet.

Ragnarok or Ragnarök is btw “a series of events in Norse mythology resulting in the fiery destruction and fertile rebirth of the world” (via Wikipedia). I am sure with these shoes it is possible to destroy all little bugs under your feet and feel like the Queen of the new and better world.ragnarok clogs collage

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.

Rose skybox is mi temporary casa

I am selling my land and while waiting, I live at the small but very cute (free group gift by Lo*Momo) rose skybox. It has beautiful rose garden outside the one big window. The chairs, olive and natural, are from Arcade Gatcha event – I have similar chair at my home. I bought it almost 25 years ago when I moved out from my parents house and the chair is like a new. It is also my children’s favorite chair. piece and lovemi casa rose skybox

Body and Soul

please don’t peck me eaye

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).

5 sick cats and 1 new mainland plot

Ok, I am a bad person. I forgot all my cats without food. My old playhouse has been a cat hospital and for a moment I was very remorseful and devoted nurse.

Well, it did not work out. My neighbor wanted to buy the entire sim and I was not comfortable any more…so I sold my “new” plot. AND bought another one right away. Now I have very odd sized 3072 m2 with 703 prims. I have not yet decide which way I want to live so I just have platform up in the sky. Because I want to be a better person my first priority was to build a safe place for my sick cats. Now they have food, a shelter and me having more time to take care (aka going to the KittyCats Store).

Two surprise kittens also…I found them when I was cleaning my old property. I certainly have to be more aware what is going on.

Busy in RL, lazy at SL.

I have a new skydome, but there’s no house, just five sick cats. I have “no time” to go KittyCats Main Store and buy food for them. I shopped a new skybox, but there’s no furniture.

I don’t remember when I last time changed my SL-clothes.

My inventory is a total mess. I can not find anything so I get frustrated and buy some new stuff which I do not need.

Basically I just stand at the middle of my skydome or skybox and play with Firestorm Phototools. I have no vision what so ever: I do not know what to do with my second life.

 

 

Comic strip skin

Fingerpori is very popular Finnish comic strip by Pentti Jarla. My new skin is DeeTalez‘s Jarla skin – and I can not stop giggling every time I wear this skin. Fingerpori’s humour is based on verbal misunderstandings and puns.

Yesterday I was a bit anarchistic and bought the skin through the closed Cosmetic Fair doors – could not wait. My timezone is 10 hours ahead SL time;)

First three pics: Jarla V2 A blonde Nordic, Jarla V2 A brown Nordic, Jarla V2 A black Nordic. No makeup, no tintable lip layer, just my normal FTL Natural Lashes.

Jarla 3 browsMakeup d. Select eyeshadow Lilac. Tintable age lines are way too much – I have nothing like that IRL. But I do want to keep looking realistic way to show my age (46) inworld…jarlakollaasi1Nordic skin, nordic background – and tintable lip layer brightness 3. I want to keep my eyebrows black – they are very dark also IRL. It is nice combination with blue eyes and blondish/light-brownish hair. If I want to keep my mixed reality balance I has to either blonde my RL hair or get darker hair in SL:)jarlalips3_001

Oh no! Appliers please!

ohno

As you can see, my new SLink hands do not fit perfectly with my present skin (Mynerva Plain Jane English Rose).  And believe me, I’ve tried to fit them! For hours!

My plan B was to get a new skin. Or “new” new, from my inventory. But I soon realized all my old skins looked old-fashioned and they had too much going on. I want my skin to be like blank canvas I can paint…add layers if I want more make up. Realistic look is also important, too smooth skin is boring. I don’t want to look like a doll. If the skin has puffy eyelids, it is mine:) Mature skins usually do not work but I found tintable age lines which I think are useful in case I need RL matching look;)

Plan C: find a new skin with proper SLink appliers! And I did. After  marketplace searching I found DeeTalez Jarla. I teleported to the mainstore and was ready to grab it when I realized it is pre-released at the Cosmetic Fair starting today. So now I am here, waiting Americans get up and open the damn event:)
