2Chez Comes Through

Every now and then I come across a merchant slash creator in Second Life that stands out and gives me the warm fuzzies.  This is a bit late, but I’m a bit lazy when it comes to writing I’m afraid.  Anyway, about a month ago I bought a really outstanding dress from 2Chez.  Gorgeous texturing, mesh, fit like a glove, and best of all it had an uber cool HUD that allows color change. 

I get home with my spiffy new purchase and swiftly unpack the bag and slip it on, popping on the HUD as I do so.  I click a button on my shiny new HUD and… oh no!  No color change!  Ok, wait.. this is prolly my fault.  Let me detach and reattach.  Click.  Still no joy!  Hmmm… am I an idiot?  Is parcel scripting turned off?  Nope.  Let me try another parcel anyway.  Quick TP… try again.. nope.  Relog.  Try again.  Ugh!

Feeling The Love – Love Tattoos

Yesterday I had an experience with a creator that I feel like deserves special mention.  I’ve had a Tattoo of neko pawprints from Love Tattoos that I’ve been wearing for a couple of years now and have really gotten attached to.  I love to change looks – hair, skin and clothes are all fair game, but I’ve always put my tattoo back on through thick and thin!  My most recent change in looks left me in a bit of a quandary though.  I’ve recently added the Slink mesh hands to their feet that I’ve worn for quite a while now. 

While beautiful, they caused a bit of an issue that rubbed my slight OCD nature (ok, more than slight..) the wrong way.  The hands and the tattoo didn’t quite play nice with each other, and the last pawprint on each arm was cut off in the seam of hand and arm as you can see below.

Fabienne Bolissima: How business is done right

Edit – 1/8/11: Ok, not only did Fabienne send me the fixed version of the outfit…she sent it to me in three other colors as well.  If I wore a hat, it would be off to her now.

Until recently an outfit from Fabienne Bolissima Couture was on my list of outfits with no mod prim pieces, but it’s been removed.  Why?  Because I was contacted by Fabienne herself apologizing for the inconvenience, thanking me for pointing it out, and sending me an updated version.  Basically bending over backwards to make sure her customers are happy!

A Gorgeous Little Thing

Merry Christmas SL!  I thought I’d celebrate my second Christmas in Second Life by sharing my Christmas outfit with you all.

Me in my nummy Christmas outfit at home

It’s Xmas Santa Corset Set from A Touch Of Ireland, and I love it!  It has all the elements that make up a truly great outfit.  All the prim pieces are moddable, so I was able to get that perfect fit on my smaller frame.  The design and the texturing combine to make a tasty whole.  So many outfits fall down on one or the other – great design but poor texturing, or vice versa – but this Christmas outfit delivers.  I’m picky about what I wear, and apparently so is AliciaKay Kilara, the owner of A Touch Of Ireland

If you’re a sexy lady looking for something sexy to wear for Christmas, I’d recommend getting down to her store and taking a look around.  I know I’ll be back!
