Grand Opening – Happy

Today is the grand opening of Happy, a new store with a lot to offer.  Casual wear, club, bohemian, even amazing tweed pants, and cardigans.  A little something for everyone, and all executed well.  Happy’s designer is Alika Luminos, a new to me name and maybe you too, in the fashion community. Her texturing is well done, her tweeds are perfection, and the amazing detail to her patterned items is excellent. Stop by, and see for yourself,  pick up her opening gifts, and hunt items, while shopping.  Psst..the items at the front of the store, by the customer service desk are discounted for the opening.

This sexy cheongsam is well textured, and I love the prim frog closures and collar.  Easily paired with pants, or leggings, or left as a dress it all works.  Also new are these sexy amazing heels Sasy gave me for my birthday…the Ariadne heels from SLink.  Thank you Sasy!  I have on new hair from Amacci, Marlene has tons of bounce, whisps, and a braided crown.

Another awesome find at Happy was this Groovy Ecstatic top, that can stand alone as a dress too.  Featuring soft looking prim bohemian sleeves!  Available in a number of colors, it was hard to choose, I had to fat pack it.  You should see the blue!  A recent release of hair from Maitreya with this cute color change elastic tie is perfect, as are the Ishaya velour slacks in acid from Zaara,  I paired it all with Elikatira pumps in teal, and Mood’s Fallen Tears jewelry set in gold.  A soft, casual look.

I have been slowly accessorizing and playing with different tops for this outfit for weeks, trying out different boots, hair, tops.  I finally settled on J’s latest release of their Cowgirl Boots2.  I love these boots in this red, but I snagged the fat pack.  These are classics!  The fringe is flexi, and has great movement.  I’m wearing the latest from Tres Blah, this lovely peasant top, with embroidery.  If you like it it’s also available as a dress at the store.  By chance I was already planning this outfit with Tres Blah’s denim cut offs, which are layer only, and I like that about this style.  My skin is by Felicity Blumenthal, made specially for Another Fundraiser II called Ginger Skin.  Only $50L with 100% proceeds going to Red Cross (for Japan).  My purse is from Addict and also benefits Japan, with proceeds going to no kill animal shelters in Japan.  The Fur Japan event started last night, and is jam-packed with items!  I picked up three great houses there. My hair, Tempest, is from Exile, and I am in love with the length, and soft flex.  My jewelry is from Mood, called Bandara, in silver with turquoise which match my turquoise eyes from Amacci.

I discovered these post processing effects in the Singularity viewer, and was curious to see the effect inworld.  Sometimes you just want to cut the post processing time down, or take snapshot.  This is a great, and I hope they further develop it.  I would like to see the Gaussian Blur effect lightened, and think it would be great to incorporate shadow/highlighted borders too. To access them 1. log into Singularity, 2. on your top tool bar World – Environment Settings – Post Process Effects.  I have made photos demonstrating each of the effects.  Color Filter let you play further with Gamma, and Brightness. I loved being able to change the Saturation while retaining any windlight settings I have on.  Contrast is really nice addition as well.  The Gaussian Blur is great in thought but the effect even at level 1 on the slider is too strong for portraits.  Night vision is way cool!  I like that you can also create an effect, and save it.  It’s really easy to use. To see the effects, click the Enable box, play with the sliders.  The tabs stack so if you want one more than one tabs setting, leave enable on. Check out the photos.
