Shocking Discovery

This past week just ran me over and moved at the speed of a runaway train. Leaving me totally bewildered, overwhelmed but amused at the same time. Strange combination of emotions but we all have our strange moments. I have also discovered that I share personality traits with one of New Zealand’s high profile criminals. How is this relevant to this post? That’s what amused me this week or was that the bewildered part.. well that’s up for discussion.

Shocking Discovery

Something I’m sure of though are the million review copies in my inbox, which contributed to the overwhelmed part. So let me tell you about some of it. Have you heard of the Unknown Hunt? I think this is a wonderful idea to get new designers noticed. The designers participating in this hunt only opened their doors after June this year. Good reason to support them and to see what they are all about. More details about the hunt, participants and the hints, click here. The maxi skirt I’m wearing in these photos are a hunt gift from Fabouzz.

Shocking Discovery

If you are looking for a new skin, do yourself a favor and visit FreshFace, the skin I’m wearing is Acacia and it’s available in 4 tones, you have options of brows or no brows and of course all the necessary appliers, including Lush, Lolas and Slink.

Now, I’m off to stew over my personality traits.

What’s your RGB number?

Do you hate matching your skin to your shoes? Well, you need to read on as I’m going to make your day. Gos and N-core has made it so easy to match our skin these days, it’s the only brands that we want to wear because of this and lucky for us their shoe range are amazing, so it’s not a chore. But what if you have this stunning skin that you are just in love with and it is not in their hud system? Or want to wear another designer shoe (cos face it, there are really great designers out there)? It’s pretty easy actually. Someone told me about this a long time ago, but I was reminded of it a few weeks ago after I asked a skin creator for RGB numbers. These are the easy steps:

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”.

What's your RGB number?

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.  Just add your leg RGB numbers to your shoe hud and viola, you will have an exact or at least very close match to your skin. Please note, that different windlights will influence this, also when you add your RGB numbers, start with a white pallet on your hud.

To deactivate this, just go back to the Develop tab -> Show info  and untick “Show color under cursor”.

Since I’m talking about shoes, N-Core has just released this awesome pair of heels. I used the above method to match my skin. I’m very pleased with the results.

And as a bonus, the top I’m wearing is from Somnia, and its free! Somnia is participating in the Autumn Effect hunt, so go and get yours!

What's your RGB number?
