  1. Being a woman is actually pretty damned great, as I'm pretty sure you know most of the time. Being Rhonda is even cooler. Hugs.
  2. I don't seem to get out as often these days, but when I do, it's to screw around with Windlight and saturation at an art sim.
  3. Two alts. Alt 1: Male, whom I used almost purely as an ironic socket puppet (posing as a Gorean master) to post satirical/jokey threads here. Pretty much every thread he started eventually got nuked by mods, although 2 or 3 of the OPs were preserved on the old SLU forum. I suppose I could resurrect and use him as an "extra" in photos, but that would mean updating his look to mesh, and he doesn't really deserve it: he's (literally) kind of a Dick. Alt 2: A slightly dreary, overly-earnest would-be photographer who occasionally posts here, and whom I take in-world pretty frequently, because she whines if I don't. Technically, her account is older than mine, but we all know who the real sock puppet is. I don't own land, so I don't need tier, I couldn't RP my way out of a paper bag, and I don't do anything in-world that I wouldn't want associated with myself, so I don't really much need alts.
  4. Even alts get to have adventures, sometimes.
  5. Sheep. They probably seemed a good idea at the time.
  6. Dearest Sister Scyl . . . is this the kind of place you told me to avoid?
  7. Thanks for this! For facial expressions, I'm pretty much sold on Lelutka's Axis Hud, but that is two and a half times the price of the Happy Dispatch one. The Happy Dispatch body HUD looks nice though, and very affordable, so I think I'll give that a shot. And I'm tempted to try Animare, if only to compare it to the (also much pricier) AnyPose. Years ago I tried a stand-alone animation program that started with a "Q" -- maybe it was QAvimator? Dunno. I didn't stick with it very long, as animations weren't a priority for me in those days. I should definitely give this a shot, though, now.
  8. Mind if I ask what you're using? Scylla uses AnyPose, but I wouldn't mind trying something different . . .
  9. Try striking me, and it won't be the throat I go for. Unless they know how to make a beurre manie instead. Or of prims. https://secondlife.com/destination/clinamen You and the Dread Pirate Roberts. No no no. No. Just no. Is Post-Punk therefore "Post-Music"? Or red socks. Or green socks. OR PINK SOCKS. (But yes, black socks are best.)
  10. That seems possible, although I had a similar sense (albeit maybe less dramatically) in the other rooms and models I checked. My avi is about 1.78m, so roughly 5' 10" -- certainly not short by RL standards, but definitely on the low end of the scale in SL. I'll check out some of the models again when I have a chance.
  11. Well, yes. But the problem is easy to see. My sense is that the covenants for the Linden homes will enforce certain visual standards (in the way, I guess, that condo developments usually do), so you wouldn't want smaller scaled homes in the same region as these larger ones, or it might look odd. I doubt that LL wants to set aside regions specifically for smaller sized avis. I recall Penny saying like 6 years ago that more and more women (anyway) were choosing smaller avs. Maybe, but it's certainly still a pretty mixed bag.
  12. Well, here's a problem (from my perspective anyway) with the new Linden homes. They're very nicely built, look great, and are a lot of fun, but . . . completely out of scale with my avi (and that of my main, who is roughly the same height). That's my issue, and my fault, of course: I chose to use a "realistically" scaled and proportioned shape. And, of course, the same issues arise with commercially available homes (I checked out a few for comparison at the adjoining H&G showcase). Too bad, though: door handles at shoulder height is kind of a deal breaker for me.
  13. Ok, so . . . here's the final (for now) look I've come up with, using Altamura's "Juliet" full body mesh avatar. I'm pretty pleased with the result. I'd always wanted Laskya to look different from Scylla: a little sharper, a little darker, more "handsome" than beautiful or pretty, and with maybe a slight suggestion of a wicked sense of humour. (The actual sense of humour, unfortunately, they haven't yet invented an attachment for.) I think there's an obvious family resemblance to Scylla, but Laskya is (hopefully) sufficiently differentiated that she retains her own visual identity. This was taken at the DixMix Gallery, btw . . . I wish I'd remembered to grab the SLURL, as it's quite nice. Also, I'm using Orwar's "Sol" projector. I've built myself a very simple (HUDless) three point light attachment too, for which I might produce a simply set of instructions and give away for free if there is any interest.
