Getting Started Making Skins

Here’s some resources for getting started making skins for virtual worlds. You can buy full perm skin psd files on the Second Life marketplace but the price is very high and the skins aren’t necessarily better than what you yourself can do by starting with these free skins and trying out the tutorials. Who wants skins everyone else is using anyway? Make your own! Have fun experimenting and testing them out. Uploads in InWorldz are free so have at it! Continue reading Getting Started Making Skins

Hi everyone!

So if you have seen me around in inworldz you know that I am a very social lady. If I am not working on a new outfit or look I am either helping someone with theirs or showing them the loops of IW.

You may also see me building or attempting to build whatever it is at the time. I tend to have a habit of multitasking and multi-focusing on things which I am trying to train myself to just focus on one area/build at a time. I guess I do this because I don’t want to forget an awesome idea I had while working on one thing.

I recently started working on skyboxes. Why? Because I have seen some simple ones and not saying simple isn’t nice but because I like to be different and unique I decided to take a try at it. I also decided to work on them in the sandbox sims because you tend to meet new people and its nice to have a large workstation and no accidents of picking up other objects.

For All You Horse Lovers Out There!

oYo Breedables Site
I just came across a very beautifully done blog on the well known oYo breedable horses. Their gorgeous site highlights what an amateur I am at this wordpress thang but, in all fairness, I’ll keep my whimpering to myself and give you all the heads up. Do visit oYo Breedables for a wonderful read about the breedable horses, Cats, & DoDos that oYo offers.

You’ll find information about their latest offerings, exquisitely photographed animals and events, as well as good chit-chat on what’s up in the world of breedable animals. It’s a site to bookmark and visit often if you are into breedables or just love a good read!

Blue Moon

I had an interesting evening tonight and thought I’d share it. My neighborhood is a great ‘walking district’, full of restaurants, shops, & bars, many with outdoor seating along the public sidewalks. Out on my daily stroll (my way to avoid ‘computer arse spread’) I stopped at one of the trendy restaurants, the Blue Moon, to have a nice dinner in the breezy late spring evening air. A Mambo Cubano (Cuban-style pressed sandwich with smoked pork loin, chili-coffee pork carnitas, Swiss cheese & dill pickle) grilled sandwich & barbeque sweet potato fries accompanied by an Edgefield Alexander (brandy, coffee liquers, & cream on ice).
