Little Miss M

This is an old dress from Maitreya but since my avie couldn't fit into the mesh sarong back then, I didn't buy it. Now that Moon is a size M, I decided to go get it.
I do feel like I have collapsed under all the pressure of mesh advertisement, making my avie smaller and thinner, but in real life, I have lost more than 10kg and it compelled me to change the shape of my virtual alter ego too.
I wish designers would add flexi parts to dresses too coz I really miss watching skirts swirl when my avie dances. Now that I mentioned dancing, long mesh gowns look horrible when dancing especially when the legs have to spread far apart. Probably flexi parts would be able to hide that sight. Sighs.

Weekly colour challenge-Charcoal

I had so many 'charcoal' in my inventory, it was difficult to choose. That's the Maitreya Siobhan hat from early this year and Jane's long wool dress from last year.
Somehow the pale lips and hat makes this look retro.

keeping the grey cells active

One of the reasons I decided I should learn Blender was to keep my neurons active. I read somewhere that keeping those electrical pulses working makes for sharp thinking and I didn't want my brain to go to waste. I also wanted to be up to date with technology. After all, that was one of the reasons I became interested in secondlife.
After 5 years, the virtual world is no longer that exciting. It's a lot like the real world even when you venture into the world of roleplaying which is supposed to be all about fantasy. A whole lot of drama, back-biting and back-stabbing. I would rather be a recluse.....
Now all I want is to learn blender so I can make mesh houses.

Talking about meshes, while I was browsing the Marketplace, I came upon these 2 dresses and demoed them and! bought them.
Sundae dress in peach by Volstead:
 Society dress in ice by Volstead:

I have never heard of the store Volstead before. There is no in-world store but no doubt there will be soon.

Moon didn't look good in the large sizes eventhough she is a big avatar. So because of these dresses, my avatar is now a medium to small size depending on the dresses.

Hmm, a change of skin, a change of shape size.... I guess I'm not as rigid as I thought I was. Always time to change and move on.

Weekly Colour Challenge-ghost white

I wanted to wear a whitish gown and float around like a ghost but that would be too obvious, so instead here is Moon wearing the latest group gift from Coco Designs looking like she is off to class and Jack there is following her.

My new look

Something I picked up at the Boho Culture. In real life I dress like a hippie but in SL, I don't feel like dressing my avatar as one. Except for the flamboyant print, this gown is almost formal.
As expected, most of the clothes at the event are mesh. This gown is from On a Lark. It comes with the accessories. Isn't that great? No need to search my jewellery folder and rack my brain trying to remember the names and images of my baubles. Why do women need so much stuffs? Sometimes I am tempted to just thrash everything and just keep my favorites.

I also changed my avatar's skin this week. I'm gonna miss the cute face of Fiep, but I wanted a face that is mature-looking but still sweet-looking too and I've fallen in love with the [PXL] Faith skin. I've also scaled down my avatar. She no longer towers over everybody else but she's still tall and voluptuous and she's a size Mmesh but sometimes she has to wear a size Lmesh. The fickleness of mesh-wear:/

I also completed my latest house but I'm not satisfied with the exterior so I don't think I'll be putting it up on Marketplace until I redo/renovate the house again.... like adding a door or a wall or retexture that sort of stuffs. But this is how the interior would look like:

cosmic weekly colour challenge

 As usual I will try to find old items in my inventory for weekly colour challenges and this week I found a very old Ducknipple Spring dress from 2009! The black sweater didn't look as good now so I used Coco's old black sweater which still looked fine. The bag is from an old FLF. Hair is from Analog Dog. Boots are from Kookie. Skin is from the latest PXL group gift. I never wore any PXL skins before coz they never seemed to be sweet enough for me but I love this latest skin line. I think Moon looks just as sweet as always.

Antique Brass weekly challenge

I had a difficult time trying to look for an antique brass colour....something between brown, gold and brass and then I remembered I have this favorite Azul dress called Aidaspice which fits this week's challenge.
