European Dreams

January 29, 2009

Between Chinese New Year (happy MOOOO year!), assignments and getting addicted to twilight fanficition, i hardly had time or the mood to update last week. Sorry for the delay. While posting, I have a sudden craving to go to europe! hahaz.. and hear british accents :P No offence but I think the Londeners drawls *swoons at robert pattinson:)* has the cutest drawls in the world. *dreamy eyes* Well, they speak perfect-o english hehez. Perhaps that’s the draw? Before I cannot resist the temptation to drown myself in twilight fanfictions again (I’m reading one called Bella Hale which is soo good!), I’ll leave you with an outfit to work your way through the SL shopping streets.. tata!

I got sick of dressing winter. So this one is for SEA and Aussie friends out there :D

I was just hanging out in Reiko’s backyard the other day, but I looked like I’m dress for a summer party on the beach :P Hahaz. I’m like forever overdressed for occasions in SL. Nothing much to write since my brain seem dead today.  As usual, lots of layering in this outfit. I wish LL would give us one more top and bottom clothing layers. It would be Layering Heaven! ( * _ * )

Sorry guys, this is a photoshopped pic cause I was bored before lecture.

Braiding Up

January 21, 2009

Targets:

The Aohary Military Jacket –   my favourite coat since I got it from the lucky chair a few months back. It clungs to the body and is the only downjacket so far that isn’t really bulky(?). Oh well, I love it!

The Aden Group Gift Lara Braid – Woot! It attaches to spine, meaning I can use it with any hair I possess. Well, any thing that fits, making this style, and all other aden styles the most versatile hair in SL.

The Artilleri Advert Gift Skirt – Lovely.. but remember your undies or your bottom will be frozen in the cool winter breeze *hehehez*

I wanted to finally use these 3 items in my inventory and ta-da! Hope you enjoy it :) ( Ps. Pardon the cheesy writing)

A Plea For Help

January 16, 2009

I’ve been asking for help all over the place, especially ange lolx, but my issue is still not solved. Basically, I am locked out of SL. I can’t finish loading the game. It just freezes at the “connecting to region” screen of the loading part. It has been like that for close, if not more than 36 hrs now. The last time it happened, I was able to log in the next day. But this time nothing. I’m pretty sure I’m not frozen cause ange checked for me and I log out properly. I tried logging in at different regions, reinstalling, changed the computer but to no avail. I’m still locked out. Really Really upset right now. Tia, whom I met through the SL forums is having the same problems as me. We submitted tickets and Tia got an answer 1st:

There’s a possibility that the region you’re attempting to log into in Second Life is down for a few minutes (it might be restarting). If Second Life just crashed or you were disconnected, it’s possible you’re attempting to log in from a bad location.

Try changing your login location and log in again.

If you’re running a firewall or firewall/internet security software, it may have a security warning in the background that’s interrupting Second Life’s login process. You may have to reconfigure or disable this third-party software to use Second Life.

If you’re using wireless networking, you may want to try a wired connection.

During periods of high activity, the login process may pause during Connecting to Region. In this case, wait for Second Life to return to the Login screen, or display an error message.

You might also try uninstalling Second Life, then installing it again from [url]http://secondlife.com/download[/url], to remove any temporary files that might affect the login process.

Totally WTF! Lets see, we tried logging in at different locations, still stuck. We tried reinstalling, still stuck. Pretty sure it has nothing to do with our computers or internet connection. It gets stuck at connecting to region for 3 hrs before we finally give up and restart the programme. I bet if I leave it on for 24 hrs, the outcome will still be the same. Definitely not firewall cause my firewall has always been on when I play SL w/o any effects? To be on the safe side, I tried and its still not working. :(

We’re pissed. Since the lindens are entirely useless, (bleh are they uni grads or not? Lacking of critical thinking and analysis skills much? Come on you invented the programme, surely you have a backdoor just in case? Bleh its not like biology where there’s unknown bacteria roaming around. Come on, SL is man-made! /me is feeling super sacarstic.), I’m asking anyone who have information and insights on this problem to please leave a comment. I’m really frustrated and pissed and sad… :( The thread Tia opened is here.

/me really wanna get back to blogging (lookbook has inspired me alot!), start on the pic for freak show and do that photoshoot for jiro and sheepie *sadface*

So please, help?  THANKS!

Fur Cap Love

January 13, 2009

Alrighty guys, I haven’t finished this aoharu sale but have been walking around in this outfit, inspired by the aoharu fur cap, for a few days now… so I thought I share 1st. The fur cap.. what can I say? ITS FINALLY MINE!! YAY!! 2 hrs of search and lots of moaning, sheepie finally located the whereabouts of this little cutie. I saw a cap like this in nu you, aka the taiwan magazine I’m obssess with, a while ago, on thir cover model, vivian hsu (who is a GREAT singer btw) and wanted this added to my virtual closet. I remembered aoharu have a cap like this but didn’t manage to drag myself there till the sale :P

As mentioned, this perfecto cap inspired the rest of the outfit. The magazine showed the hat in a casual light, but I wanted something chic and yet girly at the same time. I found the cupcakes suspender set skirt lying about my inventory and thought it was the perfect skirt for this look. Yes, this skirt has been blogged numerous of times. Yet, I would continue to agree that this perfectly scrupted item is a great basic, high waisted skirt and an essential to our virtual inventory. The yellow belt which came with the set greatly brightens the dull, brown-ish outfit colour. Checks are an “in thing” for this winter season and the domani brown jacket from bijou, a freebie I believe, matched perfectly. I particularly love the cuffs of this set. Can’t believe its a freebie. (A big thankyou to bijou owners here.). The necklace is from shampoo during the footprint hunt and it adds a reminisence feel to the outfit, in theme with the fur cap. Maitreya soho boots and a complementary knee length socks completed the look.

*Remember, the aoharu sale ends this sunday, 17/1 and CSR ends 18/1.

A Hint of Vintage

January 11, 2009

This look isn’t exactly new. Well, its outdated by a couple of days cause i was simply lazy to blog. Again, the inspiration is non other than out little gossip girl vixen, Blair.

Mixing vintage and mordern elements in her clothing has always been Blair’s signiture style. The Ivalde advert gift 7, Yelena, seem perfect for this occasion. I was in love with it the minute i saw it on Ding’s lovely blog. The texture was simply lovely, imitating a glitter-ing coat. The collar, skirt and sleeves are scrulpted increased my love for it tenfolds. I love it when designers make full use of scrulpted prisms and admire them for their ability in making scrupties. I’ve ever read some tutorials about it and trust me, its no easy feat getting that “ball” into such delicate and lovely shapes. This coat would definitely find its way to the closet of Miss Waldorf. Its a pity the coat isn’t avaliable anymore for those who missed it. *sad face*

In order to balance the skirt, I did not wear all the upper arm prims,the base prim and shrunk the lower arm prisms to get a “tight fit”. The skirt contributes to the “mordern” aspect of this look. The “skirt” is a modification of a cupcake dress prim that I did eons ago. In summary what I did was removed the bottom 2 layers of ruffles, move them downwards and fit it nicely to the waist area. Oh, and I shorten the length of the glitch pants provided. I highly recommend good prim modification skills before attempting this feat. Oh, and make sure you have at least 150 prisms avaliable for the skirt to rez :) Ooohh the shoes! I found them in my inventory while searching for boots? Its a old limited freebie from the shop laughing academy I got in my early days… I fell in love with the gold buttons on the sides. Lovely Lovely! I’m not sure if the shop is still around though. Its one of those shops you tp in for nice stuff and never go back again. bleh! shame on this blogger :(
