    How does your avatar look today ?

    Now, it's nap time.... "I love you, Mommie, forever and ever!" "I love you too sweetie, forever and ever and ever!"

    Just a quiet Winter day at home with my daughter and our love birds...I'm trying light red hair and lipstick...and, the crown....well, don't ask.

    Second Life is too expensive!

    I do buy items in single colors. BUT, the best thing to do is to join the group inworld of the clothing places you like and wait for 50% OFF sales. I have bought many fatpacks at the 50% OFF sales. I buy mostly with the sales, I'd have to say or coupons most of which are 40-50 % off coupons. Still, I think SL's promoting costs are too steep for me, so I never use them. It's just too much for me. I cannot afford it.

    Laughing at the judge Judy above me. I haven't read the whole thread, but SL can be a bit expensive. Clothing fatpack 1200 lindens or more...that's 5 dollars for one clothing item like a top for an avatar! And, a lot of the colors I'm never going to use and not even all the colors are good - like no olive green for instance...just a bunch of icky greens. Thankfully though with a patience, there are good to great items for all budgets, I've found. I've also had terrific landlords...just the best...my landlord for my little studio is always giving me free weeks. Lots of generous people here! I keep a a low cost MP store to say hey SL is for all budgets. It is best to start small when you are starting anyways. And, I want to keep SL open to all budgets, so I keep my items as low cost as possible. Ask a landlord if they can work within your budget...they cannot know unless you ask. p.s. The marketing or promoting fees are a bit expensive too - that is why some of the clothes are so high in price. I would like to submit to SL to give the merchants perhaps 1 or 2 FREE listings a month. Ebay offers FREE marketing like that. I wish SL would consider that their marketing fees are a bit steep. However, I do not pay SL's bills, so I really do not know SL's running budget. But if Ebay can do it, so could SL, I'd think.

    Post your best system avatar look! (Throwback friday)

    I have some of my system avi's closing their eyes and smiling. Most mesh avi's do not know that system avi's can have animated faces too.
  6. What is your favorite style in furniture? What is your favorite style in clothing? If you have a favorite style, do you feel SL is meeting your needs regarding your style? Me: For furniture. I'm a bit of a Bohemian eclectic. Preferring antiques and "flea market finds" vintage style items. Clothing: Mostly casual boho or artisan crafted look for me. I love "antiquing" in SL. I have my needs meet in the antique area but always love to see and collect more. Does SL meet my clothing style? I think it's bake on mesh we need as I love to layer clothing which is very difficult for female avatars. I love the layered look. I hope bake on mesh is here soon! I'd love to have maxi skirts and maxi dresses I can wear with feet and sandals, and vintage style coats that layer over tops or have the top built in. I want a coat for women that looks like the one Jimmy Page is wearing in this video - and soft yellow too!

    SL Mesh Men are a Bunch of Hotties!

    I am sorry, but I disagree. To me, Angelina still has a bit of a line there albeit it's paler in color as do a lot of the female skins. It's not white, but it's a pale line. I'd rather have the reverse and have a lip painted with a bit of a subtle lip liner on the lip itself rather than the palish color at the top of the lip. What I am saying is more like a bit darkness at the top of the lip rather than adding any pale line there. There is no harm in putting my opinion out there. There are all kinds of avatars welcome here, and I was putting my desires out there as someone may understand and know what I am talking about and perhaps want to design some more natural, less air-brushed type of skins for women. And, then I go to Google Images, and most if not all of the photos of the women look like the two photos below. I think the creator's should put up a photo of showing with gloss and without gloss so you can see before buying. I like the shape of the mouth in the photo of the 1st female avatar. But, onto other questions and concerns, so I need to find a head with the basic lip I actually want. Because many of these lips on mesh heads do not modify well. And, I didn't know that. Oh, and on the photo of the man...no pale line. That's more of what I want am looking for.

    Oh wow, what a difference! ************** and @loverdag how was I supposed to know there wasn't a white line there when there is? How could I know it's just a lighting or glossiness effect? Mind read? I am not a mind reader. Just type in Google Images Second Life Mesh Head Skin and it's all almost white lines on all the faces on the lips. How was I to know what was going on with that? All, I know is I see a white line, loverdag. You know, give me a little time here to catch on 'cause I don't want that white line there. So, I need glossiness OFF.

    Yes, I see. That's cool! Wow! Thanks for the link to the jewelry. That silver winged necklace was free? That's a gorgeous piece for sure!

    No, I don't know...that's what I was trying to say because of the myriad of lighting effects. I have no idea what lighting or extra "lumi" like lighting is being used. Also, in photo of the women with three different lips...you can see it is some kind of shininess added because it's even less under her eyes. I need to try some matte lipsticks. I will try in the same lighting I was using so I can see how the difference is.

    K...I'll do that. Thanks! Meanwhile, I never thought of this before...but it's kind of neat...just type in Second Life Mesh Head Skin Female or Male in Google Images and you can see all kinds of skin at a glance and then go to the page by clicking on the image. Doing the above and using Google Images may save me a lot of time in looking for what I want instead of rushing into stuff not knowing what I am doing. Also, it does seem some skins have a white line above the lips (see photo #4 but there are others) and what I want is a darker natural lip with almost no white at the top of the lip, almost like a very subtle lip liner at the top of the lip (a bit more like photos 1 through 3). Even some male skins do have a white line above the lip as in photo #4 but looks like a add on was put onto the lips. See various images below. Some photos could be using glossiness though, even on the male skin. I'm not sure. (I choose some of the men photos because they don't have the make up on.) Then see last photo of the women...she has 3 varities of lips - the last is obviously a matte lipstick and no white line. Also, in the photo of the male with the SILVER "winged" necklace (photo #4)...where do I find jewelry like that please? It's amazing! It's just amazing!

    Okay, I need to watch the video on Youtube because the slider is all the way down (like towards the bottom of the computer screen) and it won't move. I went to a low lag sim as we have lots of twinkling lights around where I live but still the slider will not move. Let me watch the video I found on my head on Youtube and see if that helps this glossiness. If not, I can contact the Catwa inworld group and ask because the slider will not move and I pressed the SKIN BUTTON and ALL and still the slider will not move.

    @loverdag I stated I'd like a skin more realistic BEFORE makeup though. But, yes, there is a weird white line sometimes that is overdone and doesn't look right too me. And, if I don't make myself heard...how will creator's know what I am looking for...even if it's not particularly main stream. I know many people complain about stuff before they actually even know how to work stuff. I see it all the time in reviews. It's actually the person who doesn't know how to work the item giving a bad review. However, we, as creator's, need to remember everyone needs to start somewhere so we need to include better instructions. I do my best to write out instructions in my listings but sometimes I know I need to do better...like approaching instructions as if it's someone just starting the first day. I think I mentioned, I found an YS & YS skin I like for a good cupid's bow...but in the photo I will show it's tone 2 and then tone 1 may as well be vampire it's almost pure white. I still like the skin though but need a lighter skin to make an Angel and have the skin reflect a little...so I understand a little about reflection but am just starting. Started SL photography about three weeks ago. Am newbie there too.

    I'm not sure where that white line is from but I've seen it a lot recently and I cannot remember if it's from lipstick demos or skins. It's even on the default head I have. The following photo is the mesh head I am wearing now with her default skin. There is a white line. (I took the photo about five days ago because I needed to know how to get rid of that white line there.)

    Why? Cost is the first issue. And second, I like being a woman. Although I want to do "fantasy" avatars too...Angel, Fairy, Elf, for example plus human. I bet men Angels would be beautiful to do for photos in black and white. I just don't have the extra money right now.
