OOTD + Podcast – Sasy Scarborough & Whimsy Winx Discuss Demos in Second Life

49605615942_3a41feeadc_3k.jpgOOTD + Podcast Sasy Scarborough and Whimsy Winx talk Demos in Second Life by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

My outfit/look of the day is a mix of old and new items. You may need alphas for this look, and they are not included with the items so I made my own.

My skin is made by Izzie Button who has updated for BOM! I was happy to find her Daphne skin also included an eye makeup that went well with my outfit. Izzie’s a great shop, she always is forward thinking about resident needs and tweaks! If you need  new makeup, a fix, a sunburn, age, or wanna catch pink eye check out her store.

Sasy and I recently chatted about Demos about what we like, don’t like, and other thoughts regarding them. Check out our podcast, either on Sasy’s blog, or on Youtube – links below.

OOTD + Podcast – Daily/Popup Sales Events

Sasy and I recently did a podcast on Daily/Popup Sales events.  Event creators, designers, and shoppers all are part of the cycle of shopping, and it’s in everyone’s best interest that a certain flow is maintained. I think we touched on a few areas where there is a lot to reflect upon.

Autumn Masquerade

48932217293_4705962fe1_4k.jpgAutumn by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

So Sasy invited me to tag along to a masquerade ball being held by The Fashion Loft. I’ve not been to a formal event in years. #platformdwelling So, there was some shopping to do. I decided it’s October, autumn, there was a high chance of many attending would go with a gothic or Halloween theme, in additional to very formal and elaborate. I’m pleased to say I calculated correctly. A few were horror/gothic, most were black or red gowns.

I went with Autumn as my theme and wanted to keep it very simple. I found this great mask first, a gacha from HEXtraordinary, and went from there for aesthetic. I knew it might be a challenge to find a good fit color wise, then I recalled the immense number of gowns from my past social life I collected long ago that hadn’t even been worn yet and with BOM now in effect I had many options. So glad Slink has come out with the Slink Physique Hourglass Mesh Body Bundle (Redux)! Very pleased that I can wear some fantastic system skins I have like the Isla skin by League.

I haven’t been a huge fan of mesh gowns as I don’t care for the movement waist down due to rigging, so I deep dived for some flexi. I revisited my Last Call, and Nicky Ree stash. However, nothing matched the tones of my mask I had already selected and was determined to use.

48932945847_f9f68feacb_5k.jpgAutumn Masquerade by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

A quick review of Marketplace turned up this lovely autumn gown by Caverna Obscura. It’s available in a few autumn gradients, and I went with brown in case there was someone else with the same idea, they would likely go with the “Pumpkin” option which was more vibrant. The dress did not come with any alphas, so I found an alpha from a slip dress that worked.

The mask and dress were a great match. I tinted some gold opera gloves (system layer) from Adam n Eve to match the bodice. I eschewed jewelry and went with some particle sparkles in gold and green from Cole’s Corner which are currently available at Uber. Since I haven’t actually shopped in a while for formal wear or even purposely chosen an updo for such purposes I went with a half up half down style from Kuni. It was pulling out older content and I was pleased with how well much of it held up since mesh. Looking forward to hopefully wearing some in the near future.

Hair Fair 2019 – Mello

Hair Fair 2019 is where the hair is until September 1st, 2019! Stop by to find the latest by your favorite stores, or find some new ones! I found Mello!

I was drawn in by her ads, but stayed for the hair! She has 4 styles available, plus a gift hair with a fatpack hud! Shown here are 2 of my favs, and the gift. What I really liked was she included a tinting hud as well allowing me to put a tiny bit of pink on my brunette shade which bumped it a little more reddish. Totally gave me 80’s tinted hair mousse vibes making me miss my strawberry hair mousse. Included with the tint hud is the ability to add a little glow which gives it a little boost.

Purchases made at Hair Fair 2019 donate a percentage to Wigs for Kids. The minimum donated by each store is 15% so everything you buy during helps this great charity help children that suffer hair loss! For more information, ads, and slurls check out the blog!

More Houseboats Are Coming!

47853360331_dce030a508_k.jpgMore Houseboats Are Coming! by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

If you’ve been waiting for that dream houseboat get ready! According to Patch Linden, in less than 24 hours …40 regions of houseboats are coming! Yes, 40!

46937055495_8ae0006e43_b.jpgSecond Life Map by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

The map shows the regions have been moved into place and are located to the east of the Bellisseria landed regions. As yet there appears to be no causeway and/or bridge leading to this area. So those within the boating community should be delighted. It’s only a short trip via watercraft.

47063895464_86e2ceae5f_k.jpgMore Houseboats Are Coming! by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

There is still a considerable amount of land that is heavily landscaped with public areas for gathering. Lovely beaches, conversation areas, picnic areas, and cuddle spots are dotted all over them. So get ready, I also imagine there will be some leaving the landed Linden Homes to try for them so you might even get an opening for a parcel if you’re lucky.  F5 is your friend.  Linden Homes are available for premium residents. Check out premium membership details at Second Life.

Linden Living: Moving In

40779447573_226655b1fa_k.jpgMoving Day by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

Hi everyone. So my mailbox is fixed, and I’ve got a proper Linden Home again. Now, comes the fun part, deciding which home style I like, and getting my furniture in.  This has been pretty difficult. I’m leaning very heavily on the Winchester, and currently moving into that one for now.

The biggest issue I see is how to divvy up enough LI for the space so I can have a bit of everything I think I need. I’m very sure I want a kitchen, living room, dining, and outdoor recreation. It’s the upstairs bedroom that is conflicting me, I would like a bedroom as well as a work room which I can use it for both.

46956662414_afa8a83b8a_k.jpgWindow Treatment by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

Initially I decided since I had 5 areas to decorate I would evenly assign LI to each space with a starting point of about 70 LI per space. Seemed simple enough, if I was happy with an area that was still under 70 LI I could reassign additional LI elsewhere or keep as I might want to spawn cars as needed.

This is actually quite a challenge for me considering I’ve lived with nearly whole sims to rez out as much as I please for 10 years. I’ve already started installing a kitchen, and plan on working it out from there.

46956663844_5936e0bd46_b.jpgCoffee Break by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

The Lindens keep teasing us with news that more homes are coming soon. I’ve been watching the map and they certainly are making progress. They’ve also updated to include security orbs, as when they went live the ban lines were ugly and as you can imagine, that just ruined the esthetics here quick. So the solution was to feature security orbs, and there are quite a few rules for them as we don’t want to suddenly find ourselves returned home from the street on a bike ride, or sent home when flying over (personal aircraft are quite popular here). So that should help at least keep my hot tub clean. For more information about the security orbs check the forum announcement from Patch Linden here.

Also, shout out to my fellow neighbors on Bellisseria – keep it weird. The random t-rex, the police chases, broken down buses..ya’ll make my day. But stay out of my hot tub.

Ya know, you’re probably thinking right now, why is does that place have a slurl and not this place? Look, do you see all those stores? I didn’t plan on having to slurl all of them. I certainly didn’t think that out well when thinking ooh I can have an outfit change and take another photo. I haven’t blogged in like 6 months so I’m rusty and over ambitious. But I assure you, all of the above stores can be found in search or marketplace, and if not there they’re closed. I might feel guilty and come back and populate them more but search is right there.

Linden Homes – Bellisseria – A New Beginning

46746251775_30807e370d_o.pngBeachy Linden Homes by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

The new Linden Homes of Bellisseria are quite the buzz at the moment. They were showcased at the 2019 Second Life Home & Garden Expo, and then went live. They feature traditional starter homes, and houseboats on 1024 plots available to residents with premium memberships. To read more about them check here. You can swap house styles any time you like by clicking your mailbox. I like that flexibility. Additionally, they’ve included a folder of assets you may need like the street path texture to extend your walkway to your home, and maybe even use for a patio. Exterior walls and columns, interior wall textures, hedges, plants, are all nice to have.

47661941091_904ed28bb9_o.pngLinden Home Content Creation Pack by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

I used a variety of windlights on my exploration as they took place at different times, and also tried to find something that made it just feel visually amazing. It’s been fun playing with them here.

I was lucky to even get a Linden Home, as they are proving very popular. I can see the charm immediately. It’s a neighborhood with a suburban feel. Streets connect everywhere so you can enjoy a leisurely drive, bike, or skate. Walks are nice, and they help you get out and meet new people. There are common areas and parks. There are beaches, and waterways for watercraft. So the area is doing exactly what Linden Labs is hoping for –immersion.

They are currently sold out, but you never know when someone might abandon one, so I would wait about a month or so. According to the wiki and signs around the community, more are coming soon. Additionally, the map shows another area to the far north that looks to be under development as well. From what I’ve inferred from the article, this may have a different look or style while retaining a neighborhood feel.

46937876284_8bf97cbb5d_o.pngWhen life gives you lemons… by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

Sadly, however my mailbox which controls the house had a script error and my house disappeared. So I’m currently camping on my parcel awaiting resolution on my support ticket. It’s happened to a few others as well and is a simple fix according to the forums. I’m patient, and having fun until then.

I’m actually pretty lucky as while I have a neighbor on either side, to the back and across the street are parkland. I’m also a quick walk to the beach and houseboats, while still in a very greened hilly area. I can easily walk to the community pool as well.

I’ve been spending a great deal of time wandering and motoring around the regions here. I’ve noticed some interesting things along the way. Sections while all having the same sets of houses, sometimes have a different feel based on street layout, amenities, terrain, and then personal esthetics of the residents.

46746256105_6fbe050467_o.pngLinden Homes – Rutherford – Roundabout by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

I’m particularly enjoying some of the long avenues, as well as the roundabouts. When I came over to visit Gogo, I walked around and found a roundabout section I fell in love with. The houses to the south of it were higher up in the hills so their view is of the roundabout and then downwards to the water. It’s very pretty, and instantly made me want to move in.

46937880364_e664c8a3e0_o.pngLinden Homes by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

The regions to the west and as they move south have a different feel than my own, and also completely different from the few regions I’ve visited over on the east coast. I’m really happy that they’ve created these hills and mountains and variation.

46746261385_05c0ed0e58_o.pngApple Fall – Linden Home – Open House by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

If you are interested, the creator behind the Apple Fall brand has a home here, that is as of this post has an open house going on. You can enter and check out the home he’s decorated with his own creations, and very prettily landscape with his and others items on the outside. It’s interesting how he’s accented his roof peaks with Mesh Roof Truss Header By Kate McCridhe.

I am very happy with my decision to move here. I highly recommend coming over and walking around the regions here to see if this something you’d like. I do have some things I would like to see changed like the public areas are deeded to a Linden public works group. It would be nice if you were a homeowner here to be able to be added to that group so you can rerez a car out when away from your parcel. Even with rezzing on a timed basis it would be nice to rez out a bbq and meal at the local park for an hour or so.

There are ‘rezzing areas’…I just haven’t located them yet. I’m just saying it would be nice to rez my car out wherever I am, after getting out to talk to someone instead of locating one of these areas, going to it, then rezzing, and leaving. Also, yes, I know wearing wearable transportation is a workaround, but my Benz is a little classier than that thank you very much.

32719304107_bd72c918d3_o.pngLinden Homes – Adorable Garden Customization by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

I also have a concern as to how esthetics are able to be maintained. I’ve seen a few instances of some strange add ons that do not compliment the theme. Are we able to report them? Will action be taken? Some people have managed to beautifully blend some fantasy with reality (yes, you with mushrooms for trees, that was beautiful – well it was beautiful with the windlight I was using at the time). Some have just reduced their parcel to mainland hell (I’m looking at you with the prim you rezzed out for a garden wall and put an rl pastoral picture on it – think of your poor neighbors! They can’t even abandon and find a new place to escape you). Yes, I know, I can derender it, and even forever if it’s that offputting, but still, again, I’ve seen others deviate from traditional, but amazingly pulled it off well (aka the crime scene house).

Another concern is, some areas the Moles have landscaped quite nicely, while others seem to be lucky they even have trees. I noticed many along the western coastline seem to have care taken to their common areas, and even sport additional walls along street corners. I saw a few sims with hardly anything other than some trees, leaving them very plain in comparison. I hope they revisit those areas for improvement. For example, West Allen has some street corners with a nice wall cornice with iron grates, Everfaire has lovely rocked, and grassy common areas. All these details generate atmosphere. Then places like Holliday, have that lovely 3 parcel lengths of the park, but only a rock cluster, a few bushes, and a bench. More rocks, more bushes, and benches would be nice. As I explore I am finding others with just lanes, perhaps there is something behind and in between the homes but it’s minimal. Also, some of the curved road bends are hard to drive over, there seem to be some physics issues with them.

46746259915_69a8b8c6dd_o.pngEnjoying the community pool with friends by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

A note to my fellow neighbors — please take the time to explore. It’s fun to walk, bike, skate, and drive here. Many people are enjoying the waterways as well. It’s nice to see them out in the common areas. Don’t be a stranger if you see me out and about. Say hello! I’m not stalking you (yes I am – well really I’m checking out where to buy your dandelions), and will protect your privacy (honest! – by privacy I mean I won’t slurl to your house unless for a reason it’s of a public matter – like an open house), but I might showcase what an amazing landscaping job you did (what you got going on inside is your business not mine).

Hair Fair 2018 – Join Demo Group

Hair Fair Second Life

Hair Fair 2018 Join Demo Group

Each year the day before Hair Fair starts the participants send their demos to our demo group. This is so that you can spend a day trying all the styles in advance and know before you arrive what styles you want to purchase. It helps not only you have fun trying everything, but also decreases lag at the event, with fewer people trying on demos during.

We urge you to join the group in world – secondlife:///app/group/2e30d166-f3e5-e2de-ff72-b3da2d06ded2/about – copy and paste into local chat to join. Or you can click the poster near our subscribo .

 

See you at Hair Fair 2018…
