The Spark of Friendship

I’ve known a lot of people in my lifetime but I’d have to say that my best friend in the entire world is Mhyja Questi.  Second Life, while being a really fun experience, wouldn’t be even half as fun if it weren’t for Mhyja being by my side.

When you find someone whom you can share anything with, it’s an amazing feeling.  No matter what, Mhyja has always been by my side and I’ll always be loyal to her.  Together we’ve explored real life and Second Life, gotten into a bit of trouble here and there, and we’ve built a bond that won’t easily be broken.

Mhyja is an amazing person, friend, and artist.  If you like fantasy accessories, fantastic jewelry, and super-creative fashion, visit her store in Second Life.  You can find BunnyStar in world or on the marketplace ^^

Alien: Crossover

I’m on an alien kick lately so hopefully you all appreciate a good extraterrestrial now and again ^^  Aliens have always been my biggest fear.  There’s something about a hostile intelligent being that isn’t quite human but still seems familiar  that terrifies me.  I used to pull the blankets over my head as a child thinking that the thin fibers would serve as an impenetrable hideout during their midnight invasions.

Everything I’m wearing is mesh.  Everything. Well, that killer gun by Utilizator isn’t but I honestly consider that a prop more than anything else.  My body, outfit, head, and hair are all mesh though!

The mesh face is new and by the creator LOGO.  I have grown pretty fond of it!  It doesn’t look like my usual characters but I think that’s a good thing.  It’s nice to have a change of pace.  The face is sculpted into one shape but the creator gave a really detailed HUD that allows you to change eyeshadow, eye color, brow color, blush, eye lashes, nose shading/texture, and even facial expressions!  At the bottom of this entry you’ll see multiple snaps of the expressions side by side.  It’s exciting to have a sculpted lip with teeth showing that doesn’t look terrible from the side.  Love that!

The only issue I have with the mesh face is that when I’m taking photographs I like to up all of my graphics and max out everything.  I personally find that this face looks best without atmospheric shaders on.  Once I flip everything on the nose tends to look wider and the nostrils look a bit jagged.  I’ve tried tons of different windlight settings to attempt to get the best results.  If you do want to shoot using the mesh face, I find that “Places Astryls Wild” without atmospheric shaders on looks fantastic.  It has a bit of a retro cartoon vibe.  The face looks like an old school pin up babe and she’s stunning ^^  (The side-by-side expressions screenshots at the end of this post have atmospheric shaders turned off.)

The mesh body/outfit is a mesh avatar set by FlexE.  The option I’m using is the clothed avatar without the head.  That way I could use the mesh head by LOGO.  It also works with the standard SL avatar head.  While I am really, really happy with the quality of this piece, I am a little sad it didn’t come with a no head option on the nude version.  I bought the avatar in world so at first I thought I was maybe just missing the headless option.  I checked online, however, and the creator, hhefestos, explains in their marketplace listing that this is because there is no way to custom match the body to the avatar’s head, but I would have loved to give it a try.  It’s one of my dreams to have a fabulous mesh body to use with my usual avatar head (or even a fabulous mesh one).  Nevertheless, I am very pleased with both my FlexE purchase and my purchase from LOGO.  It’s so exciting to see new mesh creations from talented designers and creators!

Alternative Realities

I’ve been in an alternative avatar sort of mood lately!  There are so many awesome avatars we can become in SL and it seems like a shame to not show you one now and again.  This particular avatar is called the Android GlaDOS AVATAR and I received it as a group gift from the brand [PIXELS] (paid membership required).

The full AV does come with an entire outfit that is very cute, but I wanted to customize mine a bit.  I dressed mine in this awesome cyber outfit by sYs.  This brand has some of my favorite sci fi themed outfits and accessories.  It’s worth a look for any fan of futuristic fashion!

As for the boots, they’re by Slink and I absolutely adore them!  They have such a great shape and add a sexy vibe to any outfit I wear them with.

Petite Avatars in Action

I’m pretty much in love with my petite avatar by Fallen Gods Inc.  I received a couple of questions about how it moves so I put together this little video to demonstrate.  I’m still learning how to use Camtasia Studio so the video is a bit shaky at times, but I hope it is useful in showing you the similarities between my Petite avatar and Cora’s full-sized avatar beside me.
