  1. Back after a long long break. ^.^ I love the new mesh bodies!
  2. I seem to have neglected my own thread, I didn't even know it was still going on. I used the tutorial given to me. Now I can see all of you as lovelies. hahaha. I'm sorry for not replying to my own thread.
  3. Shy needs boots made for strolling Q_Q!
  4. I had my days when I was a freebie fanatic, but now it is limited. I follow a lot of blogs and when there is a company that I've never tried out, I do enjoy their subby gifts because then I get a feel for how their designs actually are. I spend a lot of money, so I'm not destroying SL I'm destroying my wallet.
  5. I am finding myself very lonely here in Second Life. As I posted off in another thread everyone is coupled off everywhere I go! I havn't played in a few years so I'm really unfamiliar with what everyone does now. I'm a REALLY chatty person so expect me to talk a lot once I get into that comfort zone. I get along with all sorts of people. <3Cheyenne
  6. Hi there I didn't even know this forum existed, but I think it's pretty neat. I just started playing Second Life again and I have made a few friends. It's really hard because almost everyone I see is coupled off and I'm very bad at breaking the ice. I also fear facing the same challenges I did a few years ago. I love talking to people and I'd love to go dancing or just hang out. I've been shopping too much and I don't want that to define what second life is for me. I'm not familiar where to go anymore for the hot spots so I'm not to sure where to find some people. It's so hard now because men do talk to me, but it's always about sex. I wish I saw that maturity, I want to build a relationship and then we will talk the dirty haha! Needless to say, I'm glad your looking for a mature relationship with a friend. I'm kinda clueless as what to do next, I havn't found out what I want to do yet in Second Life, but so far it's a little lonely!! Welcome to second life and I hope I can talk to you! -Cheyenne
  7. I guess there is a fine line between just a facelight and being a huge xmas tree. I can see why someone would get mad at someone shoes blinging up the whole area. I remember years ago when bling was VERY in and it was all over the place. I was one of the blingtards and I can't believe I went through that phase. I really haven't seen bling as much though as much as it used to be. All the ladies shoes and jewelry would have the crazy bling. I found that story very amusing though about the shoes. bwahaha.
  8. Good evening everyone! Wow, didn't expect the huge response, but this community always suprises me. I don't even know how to respond to everyone at once. First off, let me say...THANK YOU!! I'm happy everyone has put some kind of input to tattoos or even refering me to a few places. I'm even happy that some of you have messaged me inworld. Now also let me say, I DON'T want to be like everyone else. I also do have tattoos in real life and they were so painless I'll do it again someday, but I always OVERTHINK everything. (So when I say butterflies, I don't mean just slap on a few butterflies and call it a day.) I do like the whole custom idea of tattoos. It'd be neat if someone could make the ones I have in real life. They are actually on my chest, but not smacked in the middle like I see quiet often in SL. I have not done to much exploring and getting out just yet in second life, so maybe this is why I don't see how common tattoos are. I love tattoos and I think they are a great way to express yourself. I'm not sure if I even stand out now, my socializing in second life so far has been minimal at best. I need to stop being a wallflower or a forum stalker haha! . I also liked the idea of trying to make my own tattoos. I learn very fast and I enjoy being creative so I don't know why I didn't consider that idea in the first place! I think I might mess around with that and recreate my tattoo that I have now. I'm still going to browse around a little and also hold into consideration of NOT having one. Sorry if I'm all over the place, everyone helps out and I want to make sure I'm thankful for that ^.^
  9. Facelights have been around since I used to play before I was allowed to... I had forgotten all about them until I came back, I was really frustrated spending a lot of money on really nice skins and them not looking as great as they did when I exited edit shape mode. So, I again as I always do, crawled to the forums and looked for advice. The advice was a facelight. For me the facelight fixed the issue and I was satisfied. I for one enjoy looking at other people's avatars! So saying nobody is looking might be incorrect for some. BUT as I said, I switched my graphics to high and now I do play on high. I looked like a giant light bulb and I felt really really sad for ANYONE who had to deal with my harsh face light. I took a recommendation here and bought a facelight. I setted my settings back to high and played around with it to make sure it was not harsh. Now I can tell a huge difference and I don't glow like a light bulb. I still appear the way I'd like to and I don't glow like an idiot. I'm sorry that I want to look the way I look in my edit shape. When you spend money on skin and your appearance you want, at least I do, to look just like it's advertised. I understand sometimes I should take off my facelight, especially in consideration of everyone else. I'm not a hater, but I understand those who probably despised me for wearing a facelight. My apologies to all, thank you for all the comments and opinions.
  10. I am almost done perfecting my avie, but I noticed something was missing. I really love tattoos, I have them in real life and I'd love to have some in SL. I've been looking around a lot, I tried SL Marketplace, but that's really not one of my favorite options. I enjoy going into the stores and looking around. That being said, I DO not want anything touching my chest. I do love sleeves, some back tattoos and so forth. I really would love to keep my boobies clean though xD. This is what I seem to have the most issues finding. I also want it to look as natural as possible. Nothing too bright and nothing too dull. I love butterflies, birds and all the girly things (no not hello kitty). I also love japanese art forms. Something a little antique looking I guess you could say. :) Hope I'm not to demanding! haha
  11. Eeerrrr...please explain why I shouldn't wear a face light? A lot of this game is customization and without a facelight I look like a puffy blowfish. Is there a reason NOT to wear a facelight?
  12. EXACTLY!! I was just messing with my settings and I was SO bright. I'm really sad for all the people who saw me in high with horrible lighting. I got on another avie to see how bright it really was, and you could see the brightness on the other avie standing next to me. >.<
  13. Thank you so much! I prefer rosy colors as well . I'm going to try this out, I'd probably look ridiculous on your screen. >.< You can't change the settings in the one I'm wearing.
  14. My friends gave me my nickname in real life. Shybird, so I added the shy to the end of it since shybird was already taken. I HIGHLY regret this avie name. I wish SL had an option to change it.
