More poses… really?

Yes really, I know my previous post was about poses. But since I wrote that pose I decided to actually sort it and I found some really cool poses! Some I never knew I had!

So while everyone else are at the Skin Fair and Whore Couture, I’m hard at work sorting poses. I found this one from Sari-Sari – Voyage. One of the cutest poses.

3 So wait up! I’ll meet you at the Skin Fair.. and I’m bringing my suitcase!

Favorite pose

Hi All

Do you have that one pose that you have had for sooo many years, but you keep using it over and over.

I have one of those. This one from Atooly. Every single time I go through my poses I always love to use this one.

On the note of poses, how do you sort it? I have sooo many that it is impossible to find anything. Currently it’s all sorted under brand name, but I really struggle to find a pose if I was looking for sitting or a back up pose. Then I end up buying a new one, only because it is sooo much easier. I’m aware I may have like 200 sitting poses already. Let me know your magic formula!

Below is the pose I always use from Atooly.



Arriving Home

Hi All!!

Yes! I have been away a while… well a long while. Mostly gone from blogging, but I have been around in Second Life. I have decided that I may start blogging again and there is a new store I will be telling you about, but more about that later!

When I said that I was around in Second Life, I really meant that I was around more in Second Life than blogging, but I was away from Second Life too. That was for around 5 months. Nothing has changed much since the time I left. This is a good thing, and a kinda bad thing. I didn’t have to update Lola that much, but I also didn’t have anything to be excited about. So I’m looking forward to exploring some more and showing you guys some stuff!

I’ll update my blog and add a resources page where I will link all the credits.

Hope you will join me on the journey again.

Much appreciated that you stopped by!


That pesky hair bases that won’t match

Hi Everyone!

I have not blogged in so many months. It is really nice to enjoy SL and not having any deadlines. All the new mesh heads, all the awesome new appliers! I can just play around with it all – in my own time. But I do have one issue that has been working on my nerves! I can’t seem to match hair bases or eye brows for that matter. And I keep changing my hair, so it’s an endless struggle.

Then I remembered that years and years ago before mesh…. actually wayyyyyy before mesh, N-core made amazing shoes (they still do) but we had to match the shoe feet skin to our skin ourselves. That was even before appliers. We saw so many stunning avis with pale skin and dark, dark feet LOL! Anyway then someone told me how to match my feet perfectly and I thought I might give it a try with my hair bases. So I went to look if Firestorm still had the same settings after all the updates. If you use firestorm and a Catwa head and are interested below is how you do it.

1. I suggest you set your windlight setting to Midday (Ctr + Shift + Y) or my personal preference – Nam’s Optimal Skin and prim windlight.

2. For optimal tinting I also suggest you deactivate your Nearby/Local lights and projectors setup. This is easily done by going to Preferences (Ctr + P) , then click on your “Graphics” tab, un-tick “local lights”, “Basic shaders” and “Atmospheric shaders”.

2. Ensure that your Advanced tab (Ctr + Alt + D) and  Developer tab (Ctr + Alt + Q) are activated.

The next bit is for Firestorm, but if you are on a different viewer, just look around in the Develop tab, there should be similar options.

3. Click on the Develop Tab, and choose “Show Info” from the menu, then click “Show color under cursor”.

You will notice that you have numbers at the bottom right of your screen. Hover over anything with your mouse, and the colors RGB numbers will show. Hover over the color you want to copy and make a note of the RGB numbers at the bottom right.

4. Open your Catwa main hud.

5. Go to the Alpha, Lashes, Tint, Neck-size tab, click on the little mouse as the picture below. You will get a pop-up, add the numbers, separated with commas, then click submit.

6. Then click on the hair base or lash icon and then on the color under the color range. Your hair base or eyebrows will change to the color your picked. You can also save the color. It is always good to start with a white base. Also you may have to play around with the blend modes a bit.


Below a picture of how it looks after I changed my hair base. It is a raw screenshot. I have not done any editing to it. If you have any trouble, just let me know, but please keep in mind, I’m not inworld often and I’m not checking WordPress that often anymore either. Sorry! that is why I have not blogged in ages!


Apologies for the long post but I hope this helps!

Have a good one.
