Winter is here and we’re all going to need nice coats and trimmings to keep us warm on those cold, Second Life days! It’s been really great seeing so many sims changing over for the winter. There’s something magical about walking in a virtual winter wonderland, snowflake emitters peppering your hair in white. The sim where I shot these images, Petit Pas, doesn’t disappoint when it comes to snowy satisfaction. I shot these images at the Sugar Pink Cafe, which is adorable but very, very closed during the time I was stumbling about and sliding on icy walkways.
I had been eying this coat by G Field forever! It just didn’t make too much sense to buy it when it was 100 degrees outside in the real world. (Of course, that never really stopped me before.) The coat is incredibly cute, has adorable detail, and is sold in the same store where I picked up these little, fur-lined boots. I did modify colors on both the boots and the coat so don’t try to find these exact matches. If you want the look I’m showing here in the images, buy the ones I listed in the style card below and then tint all the necessary bits. Also, the boots have several invisiprims surrounding them. You can either edit those to smaller sizes to where they just vanish within the boot itself or you can unlink the boots and then remove the invisiprims that way. Just remember what your parent prim is! To solve the alpha issue, since the boots don’t come with one, just add an alpha from a different pair of boots. I used one from Neurolab.
Have I ever mentioned I’m a Pink Fuel junky? I am and I love my Elly Skin to no end. I just love how pale the Sugar color is and how it looks in winter scenes. I can’t wait for Mochi Milena to create another because I’ll be right there ready to buy. Her lipstick options are incredible as if the skins aren’t cute enough. Most of you already know that, but if you’re new and trying to figure out which skin is right for you, I recommend you at least demo the Elly skin at Pink Fuel.
With Christmas time right around the corner many Second Life residents are beginning to shop around for the perfect gifts for their online loved ones. There are so many great choices out there and I can’t seem to make up my mind either. I’ll be building some, buying others, but I just can’t wait to see all my friends happy for the holidays. After all, we’re all real people behind our keyboards. No matter how far apart we all are, it doesn’t mean that our Second Life friends and family aren’t close to our hearts ^^
