Spring is here, let’s frolic in the flowers! April 4, 2010

A virtual world is defined by the creativity, fantasy and talent of its residents. Our builders create the fundaments of such a world, the landscapes, houses, its flora and even its fauna. The designers make us look beautiful and enable our virtual selves to be whatever we want to be. But there is one group which tends to be a bit overlooked – the posemakers and animators. Imagine how your SL would look without them.

What would your SL be like without poses?

Beautiful avatars would stand in that beautiful world like scarecrows, watching the butterflies dancing over the meadows. We might be able to waddle right behind them with our noobish duck walk. Instead of ballroom dancing there would be only ballroom bumping-into-each-other in a desparate attempt to connect with each other. Couples could only sit next to each other and lovingly stare at each other from the corners of their eyes. It would be a beautiful world indeed, but at the same time a deadly boring one!

Hai butterfly!

This year, for the first time, posemakers have put together a Pose Fair (find more information here) to raise money for the charity Motivation , which does work in low-income countries to enhance the quality of life of people with mobility disabilities. I spent a few hours and lots of Lindens there and I am absolutely amazed by the huge variety of poses and creators (many of who I didn’t know before). The adorable butterfly pictured above for example is a donation gift by LAP and includes four different animations when worn.

Crazy Chick

Poses can turn us upside down, like this handstand by “aDORKable Poses”, which is part of a whole handstand set!

Bubble Dreamer

They enable us to visualise our favourite pastimes, our thoughts and our dreams.

Childhood memories

We need posemakers and animators as much as we need fashion designers and builders, so let’s celebrate them and give them our appreciation, and please don’t forget to credit them in your blog posts. Happy Easter everyone!

Don’t worry, be slimy! January 27, 2010

I have been carrying this snail set by “UchU* around for a while now, mainly because it proved to be quite a challenge to put together an outfit. Hair wasn’t a problem, as it was part of the package, and Nuuna Nitely‘s free “Pink Stripe” skin turned out to be perfect for the Snail Girl. But what to wear?! Even Fionna, the fashion genius with a huge knowledge of SL fashion and shops was totally stumped when I asked her where to find a beige-pinkish dress that would go with my snails. So I had to resort to randomly teleporting into stores where I already had bought nice clothes from and hope for the best. Surprisingly it took only two teleports to land at “Couverture” where I spotted this dress exactly in the colour scheme I was looking for. Yay!

The Snail Girl

To make things perfect, the top of the dress has this purple part giving the impression to connect it with the snail shell on my back. By the way, the dress can be worn with or without the puff sleeves

The Snail Girl

As already mentioned above, the snail set comes with snail hair (two versions with or without facelight) and two snail buddies. One of them circles around you and occasionally spits out little stars, whereas the other one happily sits on your head and minds its own business. The only drawback of this cute set is that it is non-modifiable, meaning I couldn’t stretch the hair to fit my head. Therefore I decided to try a new shape by “Silhouette“, which was an expo gift ages ago, and the hair was fitting well on this one.

Don’t worry, be slimy!

Haahaa!

Day 5: I’m dreaming of a white christmas… December 5, 2009

…but I have the feeling that the rain is going to last until the new year! At least in SL I can have every virtual weather I want and I can even carry it around on my head!

Snow scenery

When you click this cute winter hat from Little Girl Shop it sings the first line of “White Christmas” and starts to emit snow particles. “Little Girl Shop” has tons of cute pets and dolls (see also Fi’s post from last year here), like fluffy rabbits hanging on a balloon and flying around you, or little dolls sitting on your shoulder or hair. Like this hat, most of them are transferable.
