Steffy Ghost’s Work of Art

So Whiskey is doing a new blog with SL Houses… I think you will find it wondrous.

A side note to you, dear reader, as this new blog finds its final shape and form:

I love the way Second Life looks. SL has a quirky, real-but-unreal quality to it and I’m not trying to change that in my photos. I like for my photos, both here and my more personal pieces, to look like Second Life. There are photographers who, through clever use of windlight and filters, can make SL look just like RL – and those are lovely, too. But they’re not my taste nor my style. You won’t find ultra-realism here. You’ll find Second Life as it looks through my viewer, which is exactly how I like to see it. I hope you enjoy it, as well.

Now, on to Steffy’s place.

Winter Solstice, Mystic Realm

Hey, time to climb back on the horse.

A magical time of year, first snow, cheery fireplaces, and cuddling close with another warm sentient.

Some of the best mashup fantasy designs I’ve seen lately, plus breath-taking sim build, PLUS inventive new product ideas, PLUS PLUS some cute outfits are all at the Winter Solstice event.

Consult the map, as the arrangement of the vendor squares is a bit dizzy with the wonderful starfield overhead, the build mix of organic ice with glowing transparency and glittering stars is magnificent and not to be missed.

Shop with all your settings down low, but certainly find a quiet time to take pictures with all the settings up to high def.

And merry holidays.

I hope I get my breath back. Please accept my absence as I manage my sorrow.

Don’t make it a war between classic and mesh products

So I assure you this is not a rant.

I’ll continue to visit SL and shop and go to events. Consider this an observation and some advice from a long time user/customer.

Don’t make it hard for Classic Avatars to find product, or be able to tell your product is backward compatible with system layers included.

classic

Seller, you’ve gone to all the work of making fab textures, make it clear on your ads and vendors what I’m buying. If you don’t want to support Classic Avatars, ok. Sometimes the system layers and/or alphas are in there, but you have not made a point of saying so on your vendor. You should.

The mesh makers are quite clear about which mesh bodies they are supporting.

We need the same clarity on tattoos, gowns, makeups, etc.

mesh

And hopefully, tattoo and makeup makers will be more clear when they are NOT going to make the new products backward compatible to tattoo layers.

Have a great SL experience!
