Sometimes I revisit old ideas. I can improve them, I can add them a new twist. When I found this absolutely gorgeous lilac mesh dress from Junbug I felt it needed a little edge. I remembered my Mad Max 2 inspired SL traveller outfit and took some elements from it. The hair, the horns, the straps. This royal and fantastical look was build with something new and something old. I went to a beautiful sim called ROCHE (SLurl) to be the princess to my woolly subjects.

Vain

Last week I decided it's time for a new vanity pic. My old one was from 2012 (!!!) and since I redid the site and added a new logo-ish to it I thought it's time to show my current face on various places. I decided to do something simple, something that's me, use some of my favourite clothes and the hair I love and accessorise it a bit. I admit to have Photoshopped the actual vanity pic with a heavy hand. Liquify, blur, some nifty actions I have... And a simple background. If the details aren't so clear here in the smaller size, check the pic on Flickr as the biggest version of it. The actual vanity pic is up there on the top and below is an extra I took today featuring the whole outfit.

Lately I've been wondering why I have lots of problems with my Second Life photography. For some reason the pics I took kept being slightly not as good quality as usual. Getting the pics look good required lots of photoshopping, much more than previously. I blamed my Mac for not having enough power (all of a sudden) and my Internet provider for a bad connection. I though maybe SL is being silly and not working well with the textures and mesh. So you can imagine my embarrassment when I today noticed that for some reason my snapshot preferences had been turned from lossless png to jpeg. No wonder things were working strangely!

When I finally got everything working I put together this sweet pastels outfit. I build the look around Shabby Pastel Dress from [ bubble ]. It has a hud with several different colours and is of course mesh. Other items include old and new, mesh and no mesh. And of course it's very pastellific in general, with a couple of basic black accents.

I made some big changes to all the sites here at helmikuu.net and took that opportunity to freshen up things here at my SL blog. As part of the freshening up I made a new theme, slightly based on the previous one. And I created a new header "logo" for the blog too. This time with a snapshot of myself, sitting pretty, wearing only a huge hair and tights I've made.

This was a pretty drastic technical change to the blog so some old things work in new ways. You may or may not notice the difference. And as usual with these freshening up jobs, I'm still working on some bugs and glitches. If you do notice something not working, please let me know so I can fix it!
