My monitor has passed away, see you soon !

Yes, this morning my monitor passed away. I felt it was about to happen, poor thing.

Hopefully, it is still guaranted ! Gonna be back next week with a free new monitor ! It is a Iyama ProLite B2475HDS-B1, we discovered they have short lifetime (more or less 1 year, mine is 1 year and a half, lucky me). But I also ordered a new monitor from another brand, in case of (and because I’m willing to get a 27″) : it’s a AOC e2752Vq ! I don’t know much about this brand, but the critics are really good (great colors after a few settings, good response time, my numer one specs !)

My monitor has passed away, see you soon !

I was willing to blog all the new juicy stuff you can get at FaMESHed this month, but my laptop has an ATI video card (powerful but LL does not like ATI…), and I got too many weird red/green/yellow artifacts on SL UI to stay logged in ! So here are some details about the look I wanted to share with you ! No more teasing next week !

Duveteux Rayonnant

Boom released the new “Duveteux rayonnant” blasers collection, and this is exciting ! (and really a funny French name !) Those models were introduced in august 2012, at Collabor88′s birthday themed on “Baroque”, in flashy crazy colors. This collection’s colors are less “electric”, if you see what I mean :) I like them a lot !

New basic tee shirts from Izzie’s, lots of colors themed on seasons : Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn lines ! And appliers for mesh breast implants Lolas Tango are available !

I stopped by and completed my [e] favs collection, of course ! Designer Elika Tiramisu announced that everything in the store is being retired and won’t be coming back, she would like to continue moving forward with meshes, her store is full of old sculpted hairstyles and shoes, so a fresh start would be great. It’s your last time to say goodbye to [e]‘s sculpted shoes and hairstyles ! The question is : will the latest mesh hairstyles disapear too ? I guess yes. Only new things accepted in the new store ! Can’t wait to follow Elika’s new projects !

Mesh implants

I wanted to resume a little the mesh implants trends, so I own hands, feet, hair and boobies mesh implants. I feel like a bionic mesh avatar, ahaha ! I also own the doll mesh avatar from DollCoco and some funny mesh creatures… There are also complete human avatars, like dolls but realistic avatars, replacing the whole system body, or just heads. Ears (regular or elven), horns, tails also exist, those implants are really useful in a second life roleplay. We totally integrated meshes in our everyday second life in 2012. Furniture, clothes, accessories, avatars, implants. Mesh are everywhere, and replaced the sculpts, which were heavy to load and ugly, due to the lack of polygons and the sculpt map technology based on image spectrum thingie, according to me, but I’m willing to go in the details here, I’m no expert !

So, are SLink mesh hands and feet and Lolas Tango mesh breasts the most successful mesh implants in 2012 ? I guess they are. When you go for a walk around the grid, you must have noticed the incredible amount of avatars wearing those implants. It is a success, because they are easy to use, to edit to match your skin tone, thanks to smart HUDs or appliers (what is an applier ? Click a small HUD provided by your skin or clothing brand, it applies the texture to the implant).

I succeed to edit my Lolas boobies to decrease their size and keep the cloth layer quite right, thanks to Aranel Ah’s blog post “Troubleshooting SL Breat Implants” on Boom blog, replying to frequently asked questions about editing mesh breast. Don’t forget to always make a copy of the original implant before editing it !

My toes ! :D

So, what next ? Which implant will be the next success ?

I don’t think much about spring

I found this top (from a dress) by The Plastik, in a gift at the entry of the store. Boobies applier is available, and it’s really nice. I managed to reduce my boobs size nicely, without texture troubles with Al Vulo skin that I really like, love freckles <3 ! It is january group gift ! Friday I got myself those mesh pants from Boom, and later I remembered RedMint december hair group gift, colors are matching :)

Yes, it’s true, I don’t think about spring yet ! I’m still living with snow under my feet, and snowflakes dancing in my hair, and I won’t complaint, because I love that ! But I love What Next‘s Spring decor, offered for Four Walls hunt. All items you find during the hunt are 20L$, let me show you my favorites ! I’m refurnishing my home, to prepare for spring but that’s hard to think about spring when snow is still falling, so it’s quite empty for now !

Photoshooting of a Fox

House of Fox  released a new top and pants for Fameshed event, and I love the style. This Symmetric top is available in different colors that I love, metalic colors and this gold marries perfectly the metalic pink leggins. Look at the shape of the pants, I really enjoy the shape and texture quality, really a great job. I think I never had such a sexy bottom ! I had to edit my ankles, a bit of flesh was interfearing with the fabric, but nothing annoying. Here is the photoshooting.
