I’ve styled some new releases together, Emery’s St. Lucia leather pants, with this sweater from B.C.C., the back of the sweater, which I totally should have photographed, is low with a tie. I love it as we see so much of our back in SL, it’s nice to have that detail there. I’ve styled it with Livalle’s Rhiannon platform heels, and Minimal’s ABC necklace and bracelet.  To see what Sasy is wearing, check her out on her blog, SasyPants.

Prelude & some WP/Flickr tips

22729428251_62d75404c7_z.jpgPrelude by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

So, I put together this outfit with some new and old clothes I have. It’s for a chilly, but not too chilly fall day. I’m really into layered textures (fabric – not photo) and this makes the cut for me. I’ve titled my post as I usually do after a song title, it’s an instrumental by a band called Bag Raiders, I recently found. It was kinda odd to change my blog title after the fact, to include “some WP/Flickr tips”, which might have left people saying “whut?” to the Prelude.

When typing up this post, I noticed Flickr has recently changed, providing only the BBCode, instead of BBCode and HTML. This was irksome, and I am not happy, but whatever. Flickr has really gone downhill since Yahoo purchased it, and the new changes have not been user friendly. I don’t think they really grasp how people use Flickr.  So, faced with new change, I found a code converter.  BBCode to HTML will let you do exactly what the title says. Just grab your BBCode, and paste it into the box, check mark any settings you want and convert! Voila! Copy and paste your HTML into the Text Tab, and go back to the visual tab and hello!  This does leave the name and account holder info underneath your photo. It could easily be removed if you are more HTML savvy than I, but, after consideration I think I like it. It easily, and quickly cites the photo reference. Many times friends and I will blog each others photos when we do posts together and this makes sure everything will get properly cited. If your citation appears as close as mine by the photo, at the end of my GIF you see I put my cursor in front of the title of my photo, what isn’t shown is I hit enter so it would appear below my photo.

You can still select the HTML in the Embed Tab on Flickr, however it has a string of HTML that looks a mess on blogs that you have to use. Just don’t select any of the options like banner, header, etc. Select your size and copy paste. Or just you the BBCode – HTML.

See my animated gifs below for a reference as to how it works. The website also shows simple HTML codes that you may find useful to know for a fast edit.

While I’m at it…I know some people haven’t really used HTML within Flickr before, and they’ve also made it hard to find this information when it used to be right there under the description box under your photo. But I was slick enough to save the link to the Flickr: Allowed HTML page for future reference. Should this link ever become disabled, refer to the below screen shot. (I’m an old dog who doesn’t like new tricks – sometimes) At least this will be handy until we get used to BBCodes. This HTML is for use on Flickr for formatting your descriptions on your Flickr photos.  I’m also including two samples of how you might find this useful. It’s nice and tidy.

I Had This Thing

I Had This Thing

Mixing and matching with some thing that have been in my inventory, some recently acquired, and some new releases.  Exile just released this fantastic updo. The Countess, at The Fantasy Collective. I’m wearing them with a new release from Essenz, the Stockholm ankle boots, which are available at The Seasons Story event. I love the leather lacing up the heels and back. I recently picked up this oversized knit sweater at Gizza which was released earlier this year. It’s a fantastic sweater, a nice super thick cable knit. It’s designed to be worn without any mesh hands, and use alphas to hide your arms for this awesome hands in pocket look. With purchase you get a 3 color HUD. I’m also wearing some of my favorite leggings. They’re made by Maitreya, and come in a variety of fabrics and colors making them something that looks fabulous even though they’ve been around for years. They’re mesh, and with purchase you also get the couture variation which doesn’t stop just at the ankle but continues down into a boot which is a really hot look.

Day at the farmers market

Day at the farmers marketI just picked up the London skin from The Skinnery at The Chapter Four event.  It’s comes with a skin, and LeLutka mesh head appliers. I love all the cute freckles.I’m wearing it on LeLutka’s Leda head. I’ve been so busy with real life, that all my goodies from May are like brand new discoveries in my inventory. I picked up this cute shirt from E-Clipse that I’ve been wanting to wear. It was at Shiny Shabby last month. I’ve styled it with Blueberry’s Tila skirt.  I have gotten to wear my jewelry also picked up in a gacha from last month’s Shiny Shabby event by Nomad & Coquette, and they’ve been my favorite pieces recently. I also blogged more of the set here.

Day at the farmers marketI’ve styled this outfit with Bushu’s Kali heels. They were released at My Attic, last month.I like how well they go with my Chicago Tote I picked up at ANE.  It has these cute headphones attached that come in a variety of prints, and you get ALL the prints when you buy a bag color. I love that! I picked up most of the items you see at gacha’s.  I’m at my little bit of Tuscany from 8f8’s
Primavera in Toscana Set from a previous round of the Arcade.  I’ve added in 8f8’s current Arcade gachas from the Green Grocer’s set, which includes the truck you see here. It’s one of the rares, and features a number of single and couples poses in it, and the engine starts! It’s really cute!

HoneythiefShiny Shabby had a lot to offer when I went over for a bloggers preview. I played the Nomad & Coquette gacha, and made a second trip over, cause I HAD to have these earrings too. So all my accessories are gacha items from Shiny Shabby, first off short and sweet my turquoise ring is from Aphorism’s gacha. My purse, shoes, and jewelry are all from Nomad & Coquette’s gacha.

Honeythief

I’ve styled my gacha accessories with Baiastice’s Ilery dress currently available at FaMESHed. It’s available in 6 colors, and 6 prints. Each dress also comes with a sheer version of dress included. My hair is a new short cut from LeLutka called Cassie, it also has a hairbase that is truly fantastic. I’m wearing League’s new Milla skin, with LeLutka appliers for my mesh head. This one is Stella, and she’s cute.  My chair and light are from Apt B’s gacha machine at the current round of Kustom 9, and I got an awesome set of geospheres for decor at Fancy Decor.

Being Is Bewildering

Being Is BewilderingLot’s of events with new goodies going on at the moment. Shiny Shabby opened today, and I picked up Entwined’s April hair. It’s long and lovely, my red shade is from the Naturals B pack. I’m also wearing Pure Poison and Fishy Strawberry’s releases from Kustom 9. Pure Poison’s Erikka necklace comes in gold AND silver.  Fishy Strawberry’s Hyde skirt is a split leg skirt in leather and available in 6 colors. I’m wearing the skirt with Ison’s Collabor88 release, the cutout crop top in black.

Being Is BewilderingI’ve got League’s newest skin Milla done in appliers, for LeLutka’s mesh heads, of which I am wearing Leda. She’s got such a pouty full lip, I love it with this buff lipstick, and smokey eye. My skin tone is Sunkissed, which I used for my Maitreya Lara body, and Slink hands and feet.  My heels are a sneak peek of Bushu’s Kali shoes, coming soon to My Attic, May 21st through the 31st. At the great price point of $95L.

Giving Up The Ghost

Giving up the GhostLeague just released the Milla skin/makeup appliers for the LeLutka mesh heads.  There are two sets per tone available, each with a selection of eye-makeup and lipsticks.  Also each set comes with a freckled version. League also released a moles/beauty marks appliers with several different mole/beauty marks locations, in a variety of sizes, plus (and I love this) the ability to mirror them to the opposite side of the face.  I’m wearing a pale eye makeup with pale lips from freckled Set 1, plus beauty marks on LeLutka’s Ever mesh head, with this pretty hair from Clawtooth available at Collabor88.

Giving up the Ghost

I’m wearing a chic printed romper from Purple Moon I picked up from ON9.  There are several sets and you get a hud that has several versions of color prints.  I’m also wearing necklace and matching earrings from Maxi Gossamer currently at Collabor88, which I like best, options are good.  My shoes are a nice favorite from Glamistry.  Getting the fatpack is great for making sure you can really customize as much as possible to have the perfect shoe at all times.

Happiness

Happiness

LeLutka is releasing another trio of mesh heads – Stella, Lotte, and Karin.  I’m wearing Lotte with Izzie’s Sophee skin and makeup appliers for them.  My favorite tone at Izzie’s is sunkissed, and I’m wearing the freckles option on my Maitreya Lara Body.  I’ve tried on all three heads, and each I like, and have no preferences yet for them. I am partial to Lotte so far.  As with many mesh heads you will need to adjust your shape’s eyes.  So make a copy of your shape, with the adjustments for your head folder.  I find that different heads require different measurements sometimes.  With Lotte you will need to adjust more so.  My eye spacing is 48, I could have gone about 46-48 on the sliders, and my eye opening is 30.  The mesh heads are also affected by changes on the head length and stretch sliders in Edit > Shape.  So play around with it while you demo.  Skin and makeup designers have been releasing LeLutka mesh head appliers with skin/makeup, or makeup options.  If you’re a makeup creator, you can find a developers kit free, on the table in the mesh heads section of LeLutka to get started creating makeup appliers for them.  Stella, Lotte, and Karin will be released on April 30th, 2015 at 9AM SLT time (that’s SECOND LIFE TIME aka USA PACIFIC TIME so GMT-7/8 depending.).  I’ve demo’d all of them and I have to say they’re really beautiful. They have a more youthful feel to them then the earlier trio, and easily transition from uber glam to soft dreamy looks.

Happiness

I’ve spent the past week out and about going to lots of events like Shiny Shabby, and doing the TAG! Gacha.  Lot’s of fun new things out! I’ve set up an outdoor camp with many of my newest things, like Ison’s Travelling Star set, and a few things from various gachas like 8f8, and Zerkalo. Of course I have a bevy of Fashionably Dead Cats running amuck through it.  My trees and grass are from Studio Skye, they have been my first stop lately for all manner of nature, and my horizon is a (sim) edge landscape from Landscapes Unlimited that’s a favorite of mine at the moment – the Rolling Hills. I’ve got the Gold version which lets me choose terrain, trees, etc, and its the edge version so it runs along the side of a sim. I don’t have mine off sim like many use them for, but within the sim so I can add more trees etc to the hills and I also like to reduce the height of trees I add to exaggerate the suggestion of distance. I could link them and make them all off sim, but I change them out so much I don’t bother. I love these horse props and poses I picked up at Focus Poses. With each set of poses you get a horse, with menu driven poses, and texture change mesh horse! I found the horse was a tad low poly for my photos so I heavily edited it. Sari-Sari’s Apples pose set worked great, and it comes with mesh apples as well.

I love the color, and print. I’ve styled it with Rowne’s Vittoria Tote, that also comes with a color hud for the inner lining of the tote. MyPhone from Muschi was a cute accessory I’ve picked up recently, I love that it comes with a developers kit to make and sell custom phone covers, also comes with hud to interact with it, and earphones. There is quite a lot to it, so check it out on marketplace! I’m also wearing keychain from Gizza in the dolphin theme. My jewelry is from League and HandVerk, and my sunglasses are from Glamistry. The sunglasses feature a hud to customize your frames and lenses. My shoes are the Milan’s from Essenz, I love this nude tone, I’ve been on a nude binge in general for about 6 months so these are perfect.

Comatose Luck

Comatose LuckI spent the day running errands in Second Life, and my look of the day is this sweater from Coco Designs with this bright white crisp shirt. I love the cuffs, and it looks starched! I’m wearing it with new leggings from Ison, the Marble Leggings currently at Uber. I’m also wearing Olive’s Uber release the Steffi hair.  Picked up the red from my Zenith Thorn Leather Clutch with red on my Ramonda heels from Glamistry. I enjoy being able to mix and match the leathers, and trim.

Comatose LuckI’m wearing the Aria mesh head from LeLutka, with Glam Affair’s 06 makeup. Both are available at LeLutka’s new store and sim design. This makeup was straight off my favorite, with the dramatic eyeliner, and two whisps under each eye, and muted fig colored lipstick. I’ve used the head’s main hud to turn up and blend the base to get this color instead of fig which I liked, but I wanted RED. They also have a gift of appliers in a lipstick on a table in Undivided which features the skin appliers. It includes 2 preselect skin tones from Glam Affair per head with a makeup. America & Artic skin tone with Fairy Tales makeup for Aria; Europa & Jamaica skin tones with Forest makeup for Ever; and Leda gets Exotic & Petal skin tones with Ghot Party makeup.

CatgrooveToday I’m wearing the Leda mesh head from Lelutka. I’m using the Glam Affair India skin tone (3rd from right on head and Maitreya body hud), with Slink hand and feet appliers. It’s a full face, with pretty lips, and I love how my impressions on this head change as I demo with a variety of hairstyles etc. I’ve turned up the shimmer a bit on the eyeshadow, this is option 3 on the eyeshadow hud, I love the shine on it! I’ve also turned up the gloss on the lips, which gives it a nice effect.

I’m wearing the Marlene blouse from Tee*fy with my Rock-A-Bye Baby skirt from Girl Thursday. The skirt is available at My Attic for the limited time price of $95L. After March 31st, it will be available at the full price at the main store. The skirt is great, you pick your color, and your purchase includes skirts with an anchor, swallows, stars, and a plain version. It’s rigged mesh, but worked great with my both my Maitreya Lara, and Slink Physique bodies.  I’ve styled with it my Has Been Sandy heels, also from My Attic, with polka dots. The shoes have a hud so you can select your base color/print, and bow color from a selected range.  Has Been also made the Atomic Bar Set, it includes the bar, and barstools. I love it, its available in this wood tone, with counter/barstool seats coordinating in Black, Aqua, Chartreuse, Pink, Red, and Teal.

Heaven’s Gonna Burn Your Eyes

Aria is one of the three mesh heads that Lelutka will be releasing in a few days. I’m wearing it in the India tone that’s bundled into the Lelutka hud, as well as the Maitreya Lara body hud. Third from the right, on both huds, it’s the India tone from Glam Affair.

Heaven's Gonna Burn Your Eyes

When released, I recommend getting demos of each, and trying each out with your favorite hairstyles. Many people (and I did too) thought that when mesh body parts came out, especially heads we would lose our ‘uniqueness’. I’ve spent quite a lot of time sitting next to my friends as we try the same heads, with various skins, makeup, and hairstyles. Sometimes we look vaguely related to each other as when you do when wearing the same skin on a default avatar, and sometimes completely different even when everything but the hair, and eyes are the same. How you style yourself is where the you (U) in Unique comes from. Ashia, Sasy, and I wore this head today side by side, and also they’ve blogged it recently as well and we looked completely different. Ever was my favorite up until I had sometimes to get used to this, after trying different hair, etc with it, I could be quite happy with this as well. So take your time, demo, try out different things, lay with your head stretch/length and give yourself to acclimate to one or more.

Heaven's Gonna Burn Your EyesI’m wearing Mina’s latest hairstyle release called Aranka. It’s available starting April 1st at the FaMESHed event. My necklace from the Floral Rocks set of jewelry from League. It has a hud to change the metals and add change a few of the gemstones. I’m also wearing a cardigan and shorts from Baiastice that is currently available at Uber for March, grab it there now, or afterwards in the main store.  It’s available in a wide variety of colors, and the cardigan also has an under-bra version as well. The Los Angeles shoes from Essenz are available in a variety of colors, and she’s added another pack of colors of pastels in a third pack! They were for Fashion For Life and now available at the mainstore.

Pink Elephants On Parade

Pink Elephants 1

So when I was a kid, I was obsessed with Dumbo. My parents bought me the sound track on record. Yes, vinyl. I played it over and over, skipping Baby Mine (still makes me cry).  It was then I fell in love with elephants, and more especially pink elephants. Do you know how hard it is to find a pink elephant. This vexed my parents to no end, as it was a frequent request from me. Later on when I was in my teens, and doing community theater, I was in the dressing room with everyone getting ready before opening. The steady stream of flowers came in for everyone as their parents arrived and house crew delivered them. I continued getting ready as the stares and whispering began, ignoring it, and then finally having to comment to everyone, yes there were no flowers being sent to me, nor was I expecting them.

Pink Elephants 2

I knew my parents wouldn’t as I thought at the time flowers were a waste if they weren’t your favorites so I was not expecting any, as lilacs were out of season, and I would expect my mother to hand cut them if they were available. At best I would receive a card. People exchanged looks, I just rolled my eyes, and finished getting ready.  Then the door opened and a crew member came in carrying a giant stuffed pink elephant, I saw from the mirror and started grinning. My parents had finally found one, then I panicked. What if someone else here also liked pink elephants, seriously my heart lurched at the thought it wasn’t mine. But it was. The girls began to comment, questioning what it was, and how they didn’t like it, etc. I didn’t care, it was a gift that my parents and put a lot of effort into hunting down instead of picking up flowers at the local store. I’ve collected elephants ever since, and still find pink elephants the hardest to find. I can find them easily on the internet now, but that takes the special out of it in some way, so I purchase them when I come across them only in real life. Finding the pink elephants from Geek made my heart sing when I was Cirque de Seraphim, and I also picked up the cutest elephant with pink balloon from Mango Cheeks. They’re mod, and I have made them larger for props. The Geek elephants are for wearing as I am in the photo, and the Mango Cheeks elephants are decor.  Now I can fill my little studio up with pink elephants and damn the critics. I am happy.
