End of a Long Day

1 End of a long day2

I spent more time in Second Life yesterday than I have in quite a while. Of course, there were a lot of things I had to do.

Shopping. Taking pictures. Shopping. Catching up with a few friends. Shopping. You know, the usual…just on steroids.

My first stop was *ARGRACE* to pick up a couple new releases. Next to Analog Dog for one of Queue Marlowe’s newest styles. Over FaMESHed. A second trip to Uber. Then off to .LeLutka. to demo the new mesh heads.

To be honest, I was a bit skeptical about investing in a mesh head. I would be happier if there was the capability to use sliders to customise my face, as with my mesh body. But since I spend so much time retouching bumpy and pointy bits on my face when processing my photos, the temptation was great.

And I really liked Aria. I did make a couple of adjustments to my shape to make me look a bit less “out-of-the-box.” And after (finally) reading the instructions, I was able to tweak my viewer so my face matched my body. I was sold.

I can’t say I’m crazy about the profile; I feel a bit like a pug with a smooshed-in face. The facial shape is also rounder than my usual face, so I’m discovering that not every hairstyle I’m used to wearing works with Aria. But with as much hair as I have clogging my inventory, I’m sure I have plenty that will work. And I don’t plan on using it every day, like I do my mesh body so I don’t have to give up my favourite styles.

After playing with the HUD to get a look I liked, I trekked back around the grid to do more shopping, created a couple of sets for photos, dragged in Chance and sent HIM shopping, took photos and then went back out for (ahem) a tiny bit more shopping.

Is it any wonder I was so exhausted I just stripped off my clothes and fell into a deep, restful sleep at the end of a long day?

    Youve done great…I still recognize you 🙂
    I noticed you in sl yesterday and apology for not saying hi ….I was taking photos too, at art exhibit and my internet was so slow, it was hard to get around. It didnt help that the display was in an apple and spiraled up inside. I kept falling off the walkway and having to start from bottom again.

      Thanks, Cheri! And no worries…I understand the problems with SL and connectivity. And I saw your shots on Flickr – AWESOME!
