  1. Does anyone have early information or rumors about how users willl be able to make apparel items (or if they will be able to) in Sansar? Will it be like in Second Life?
  2. My nipples are erect, particularly in cold weather. If I wanted my avatar (standard avatar system breasts) to look the same so I bought nipples, would just any bra or other clothing work, or would I have to have special clothes (mesh, etc.)? I don't know that I would want my avartar's nipples to point, particularly if it meant extra trouble and expense, but I am considering it.
  3. The last gathering was over two years ago. I don't know if there will be more. The woman who organized them sent a message to a number of us with the date and time. She arrainged for us to meet on some property after getting permission from the owner. All were outside except for when we discussed and showed off lingerie. That was inside and women only. The discussions included making clothes in SL, taste in clothes, and RL preferences. In the discusion of lingerie, comfort was a major part of the discussion (underwire vs. wire free, amount of bra lining, style of panties, etc.). Naturally, com
  4. "And a woman sees a naked male avatar -:matte-motes-yawn:" Very true. Men just don't understand that women's minds are different.
  5. "[above] is a screen shot of a bra. (made using snipping tool, not the SL camara). Can anyone identify it?" That is me in the screen shot. The bra was given to me by a friend who made it. As far as I know, it is not for sale anywhere. I know that she makes clothing but does not have a store. Much is lost in that screen shot, perhaps because it was taken too far away and lost resolution. By the way, in case anyone worries about SL rules, I did give permission for people to take pictures. The occassion was a gathering (not on the SL schedule or anything) of several of us who like to talk abou
  6. Yes, SL is a virtual world. If your avatar is a rabbit, robot, or medieval knight, I understand that it is not really who you are. But sex is different. One thing to keep in mind when on SL is that the avatar is only a bunch of pixels and is fake, but the person operating that avatar is a real person. I think it was Bob who said it best. “what ever my avatar is doing with another avatar, I am doing with another person”. A number of years ago I had a sexual relationship on SL (I had a slightly different name, went off of SL, then came back with my current name). I knew the guy I was involve
  7. Understanding that the person you knew who made the comment was joking, I don't know how you would know. In RL I tell at the store by feeling the wire (or lack of wire) in the bra, or from reading the label. On line, the description says underwire or not. But in SL, on the marketplace website you certainly cannot tell. Same at the store. So not only would I not know, but, since I don't need boob support or comfort, I would not care. PS: Margaine, I wear bras in second life. I don't know why, I just do. Considering the number for sale in the Marketplace, there must be some others who do.
  8. Jill: "this thread got way off topic..and for that i am sorry.." It's not your fault, Jill. Keep posting whenever you have a question or a comment. For any question you have, there are probably many others who have the same question and haven't gotten around to asking.
  9. Marianne: "This is especially to the first poster, that obviously have no idea of appearance editing himself." I am a little confused. Who was the "first poster" who was apparently a "him"? Not that I disagree. I know that some people with no experience using the in world editor don't understand what it can and can't do to clothing. But you gave a good explanation for what it is meant to do. I use it to change the color of white or light colored clothing, and raise the hem line of some skirts. I particularly agree with your last two paragraphs.
  10. Having seen the flickr page, I think that Marybeth's clothes (those that are not actual photo) look more like what people really wear than most of what I see in Second Life. They are certainly not staged for advertising.
  11. Glitch pants! I like that idea, Robert Throp. I might try glitch pants under my system skirts in SL. I wish I could find some in RL. Maybe some short short pants that look like (same color) as a dress. I really don't like the idea of being upskirted in SL and particularly in RL.
  12. They should define "private parts" Wouldn't the term "private parts" be sufficient. Is there any ambiguity there?
  13. I recently check a couple of G rated dressing rooms with a friend. She went in, staying fully clothed, and I was able to cam in from outside. Then I went in. I could cam in and go in. I heard that some time ago there was a group of "Dressing Rooms in the Sky" or something like that where you went to one place, and when a dressing room was available you were TPed there. One person to a room and too far away for anyone to cam in. But that doesn't seem to exist anymore. Yes, I would not like for someone to cam in to a dressing room to see me without proper clothes on. I know it can happen and I
  14. "There's skin stores in PG regions that show more than lifesize images of their products, but by the TOS they can't allow customers to try product demos." I would think that stores selling skins, and other stores as well, can provide private dressing rooms where people can try demo skins. After all, in RL I can go to the store, pick out a bra, and try it on in a dressing room, but not by the rack in the "public" part of the store. We need some common sense here. Of course, no one should appear "in public" in a G area naked. However, is should be OK for dressing rooms or other private area in
  15. Mirika, The "basic slips" you have links to are the kind I, and many women, wear in RL. In fact, the one from the Sears catalog looks almost exactly like one I recently bought (from some other store) and the one from National is the very one I just ordered. (I often order from them). However, basic underwear like what you (or what I) would wear in RL doesn't seem to be sold much in Second Life. That is why some of us make our own clothes in SL. Also, for slips, one of the reasons for wearing them in RL doesn't apply to SL - in RL slips are more comfortable on my legs than the inside of skir
  16. If I mark an item of clothing "For Sale" and set a price on the profile, how does someone go about buying it inworld?
  17. If 29 is young... To someone 49, 29 is young. To someone 69 (yes, there are 69 year olds here) it is very young. I know that you are too old to be expected to go out to the playground and play But my elderly mother spend more time outside than in passive indoor activities; that probably keeps her healthy. But I have been through many hobbies and activities that were fun at one time, and then became boring. Try staying away from SL for a while and doing something else. You may come back to SL and really enjoy it, or you might not. Some things may be a lifetime interest, but other things may
  18. I have noticed that on the profile for items of clothing (these are all things I have made, so I have full rights) there is a "For Sale" check box and a "Price: L$" field. What are these for? Is it possible to sell clothing using this?
  19. "7.1 You retain any and all Intellectual Property Rights in Content you submit to the Service....." Thanks. That implies that Linden does not have a problem with people selling tga files for the customer to upload. Vicki
  20. "How well do you know this friend? Is it a rl friend that you know for years or a sl friends that you know for some weeks?" My husband and I have known her and her husband (in RL) for a couple of decades. She is a science writer and editor with a degree in physics; he is a chemist. Her website is, she says, is more of a hobby but pays for itself as well as for their own internet service and a small extra profit. It is divided in such a way that most people wouldn't know that the part where she sells "how to stuff" for scientific writing and where he sells chemistry information are related. T
  21. Thanks for all your replies. I don't know if I am going to do this or not. I am really not interested in being a merchant, and don't really have the time. The reason I am thinking about this is that a friend has an existing site and is selling such things as manuals on very specialized writing for scientists, stuff for chemists (her husband is a chemist), and other files for highly specialized professional use. She has offered to sell clothing tga files that I have created. It would require no work on my part other than e-mailing the files to her. I really doubt that I would have any signific
  22. A friend of mine sells downloadable files on her website relating to her profession (pdf files of some kind). I like making clothes in GIMP for upload but I have never had any interest in being a merchant. My friend has offered me the chance to sell files through her site. I would sell tga files for others to upload into SL. Is this permissible? I know that Lindon Lab gets a cut of sales from merchants. But if people bought tga files from me and uploaded, they would pay the upload fee. Thanks, Vicki
  23. Marybeth: " I will be wearing the white one (earlier post) tonight." Did you have a romatic evening wearing the white one?
  24. Thanks, Ann. Yes, "dressed" liked that, I am sure that any male would get excited! And, in RL, I like skinny dipping too.
  25. It is almost Valentines Day, so I was wondering if anyone here would show pictures of the most seductive clothing they will wear for the occassion. Here is mine:
