Here’s the Deal

24 Aug

I’ve been forced to go on a blogging hiatus for about a month now because of computer troubles. My dear iMac was in the shop for 3 weeks, and since they declared her a lost cause, I received a replacement computer for which I am truly grateful.

All is not perfect, however. All of my programs—including Photoshop, which makes this blog happen—were lost in that old broken machine. Fortunately, I was able to back up most of my Documents to Carbonite, so I have the most meaningful items.

Since I can’t afford Photoshop now along with all my other applications, I’m going to have to stop blogging until I can figure out what to do.Hopefully it won’t be long! You never know from where solutions will come.

Thanks to all of my beloved readers for understanding. I’m not sure how things will work out, but I’ll still be around on plurk and in world. Let’s hang out!

Should I Buy It?: Redgrave Trinity

3 Jul

I love skins, and I’ve been testing out a few creators I haven’t purchased in a while. One of the new skins on the market is Trinity by the everlasting store Redgrave.

I need some input! Should I buy the skin pack? Is it “Thema”? I am opening up my comments to any and all suggestions on shape editing and if you think I can pull off a more mature, dramatic look. Click the pictures to see what folks are saying on flickr.

Vampire Daylight – Trinity: Shape Testing

Shape One: My normal everyday Thema shape made by yours truly.
Note the wider face shape, puckered lips (not a duckface!), and smaller breasts.
Redgrave Trinity shape 1

Shape Two: A new test shape
Note the larger breasts, wider lips, and longer face.
Redgrave Trinity shape 2
I think shape two needs a bit of refining, but I didn’t want to keep my normal shape for this skin. What do you think I should do with it? Should I buy it? Should I keep my old shape? Let me know in the comments.

Just for kicks, here’s an ass shot ๐Ÿ˜‰

You (and maybe I) can purchase this skin over at Redgrave.

My One Room: Creative Retreat

29 Jun

If I had one room in Second Life to call my own, what would I do with it? That question—and a fiery urge to dig through my inventory and actually use some of the wonderful items I own—inspired me to grab a space in a sandbox and decorate to my heart’s content.

I created a retreat for an artistic writer who runs away from the world to construct crime thriller mystery novels. This work space serves her as a crafting sanctuary to let her imagination flow freely.

There are more pictures on my flickr stream (I got a little snap-happy ๐Ÿ˜‰ ).
