Look of the moment!

Small update to the Lourdes release, I have added a demo of this skirt, as well as booty options in each skirt for the more amply defined  bottoms out there!   All included in the packs of course!  So in each pack you will get the new and old skirts in both the normal and booty options for easy fitting 🙂

All now available in SLink!

I thought it as good a time as any to share with you my look of the moment!  Voila!

SLink LOTM

Hair:: Naughty Designs ( I don’t have a landmark, sorry, but you can find it in search!)

Skin:: Tuli

Shirt, eyes, miniskirt and socks:: SLink

The rainbow toesocks are a limited time group gift in the What’s new in SL group as part of opening week!  Check in my profile and join up to grab them! Only available while the notice exists in the history!

Attention all designers, bloggers, photographers, users of SL!

The latest SL standard client has addressed an important bug.  The bug where the avatar had a light grey tint instead of being proper white.  This means *please* untint your grey prim attachments, download and use the latest client and don’t stress about non matching prims anymore!!

Also, it seems more stable, I haven’t had any crashes since it was released, it doesn’t leave an orphaned process in the task list like the last one, and it has a bunch of nice bug fixes and stuff.

If I had one SL wish, it would be that global changes like this one (and sculpty stitch and mirror settings etc) would apply to ALL viewers currently in use.  Actually it would be that everyone used the same (stable) viewer with the same light settings, but that’s too much to ask for so I will settle for second best 🙂

An addition to the Glamour Platforms Range

Hey all,

I have had a terrific response to the new SLink feet since yesterday and I want to thank everyone for your lovely compliments!  I had a few requests for the platforms in gold, so I have added them to the range.  Teleport to SLink to pick up these beauties.

Also, here’s a shot one of my lovely customers sent me this morning!  All that’s happened to it is cropping and adding of borders and text 🙂

In the spirit of tolerance

I have just read Ivey Deschanel‘s post on tolerance in SL and I find myself agreeing with about everything she has said!  I had planned to do this eventually, but I thought now was the right time.  This is a brief look how far someone can come in just a year, with the right encouragement and support.  What you are seeing here is the evolution of SLink skins.  I am very proud of my skins, and the rest of my colletion, and how far I have come, but also very aware of the fact that I still have a very long way to go before I will be happy with my products, if ever.

tl;dr?

Encourage, don’t discourage new designers, you never know who they will become in a year or 2!! And laugh at yourself, you will have more fun that way!

Pre-release day posting!

I just had to share this!  The incredible Sasy Scarborough made this for me, I had no idea and I think it’s the hottest thing I’ve ever seen!  I love it, thank you so much Sasy!

Warning, you may need a cold shower after viewing this.  Technically it’s safe for work, but I guess that depends on where you work 😀

Playing with my new corvette!

I took this pic this evening – this catsuit will be available at SLink next weekend!!  In hopefully more colours and styles than black full zip! 🙂

My Ruth

Alaska Metropolitan issued a challenge and normally I don’t do this sort of thing, but I have never thought Ruth ugly, just misunderstood!  She’s actually quite easy to get looking cute!  🙂

Here, Ruth wears one of my unreleased skins, the pale freckled version which really suits her shape.  The lashes are Vanity from Sin Skins, and she wears the delicious new Marie Heels from Tesla.  They are glorious and I love them to bits!!

The dress is the SLink Brocade Corset Dress with a delicate wrap to disguise those strong shoulders, and the hair is Slink’s Victoria.

I see a few people commenting about Ruth’s hands being too big, and indeed, I have been asked if Sidd’s hands are too big.  The answer is NO.  And this is one of my biggest pet peeves with so many avatars I see, both on the feeds and in world.  People, your hands are too small!!!  The hand, spread, should roughly equal the size of your face!!  Hold your hands up to your face in the mirror and see it for yourself!  Now go look at your avvie’s hands?  Are you a full-proportioned avatar with the hands of a child??  Small feet I can understand, given that shoes are made for 0 feet, but there is no excuse for small hands!

If you want to get stylised, fine, but this basic anatomy error really bothers me and I don’t really know why!  :/

/rant off

As it happens, even though her shoulders are a little broad, but hey I’ve known women like that, Ruth’s hands are just about the right size.  😀
