  1. No but I did meet someone in SL who went to the same college that a very old Internet friend of mine (who I met outside of SL years before I joined) also went to, and they both just happened to be friends. The person showed me photos of them with this old friend and it tripped me out. Really felt like some kind of weird ass fate thing.
  2. Second Life photography in which someone has tried to Photoshop a realistic face or body part onto their avatar. Second Life avatars themselves are nowhere near close to realistic, they still look extremely uncanny valley and its made 100x times worse when people shop realistic body parts onto them.
  3. Because looking depressed and sullen is cool and smiling isn't, to people in SL. Lol. But also, I think that most players feel that their avatars look sort of creepy when they smile. At least, I do.
  4. If trans people have been using the bathrooms they want to for years already, as they say they have, I really don't even see the point in unisex bathrooms. There is virtually no point whatsoever to them. Yes "transphobes" might curl their noses up at the thought of them using the bathrooms they want to but there is absolutely nothing they can do to stop from doing so. I don't have an issue with it. Never have never will. Never even thought of it as an issue until now, apparently it's being made into an issue when really, it's a non issue. What is an issue though is the concept of men's and women's personal spaces being taken away from them. I suffer with massive social anxiety and use toilets as an "escape" at times, away from people. Being stuck in a women's toilet with a trans woman doesn't disturb me whatsoever- being stuck in there with a MAN does though. And if you're non-binary you technically shouldn't have issue using either men or women's toilets. So, I think unisex bathrooms are completely pointless, socially speaking. There's a current weird obsession with making things gender neutral and this one of them.
  5. This game has child sims that are full of pedophiles and this is what you find creepy about SL?
  6. Straight up no. If you have a "relationship" in a virtual world, and you never take that relationship into the real world, it's pure fantasy until you do. It is not the same thing as real life in any way whatsoever, because you don't know a person until you've actually met them face to face. Until that happens, you can only build up an expectation or image in your mind of what you *think* the person is like depending on what they've told you, which may or may not be BS. I don't even think it's healthy to become overly attached to someone on Second Life that you know you're never going to meet in person, especially if you're just using it as a replacement for a real life connection.
  7. Everyone in this thread being all nostalgic and I'm just sitting over here having an existential crisis over the fact I have now been in SL for over 10 years...
  8. I wasn't around for the heydays of Second Life, so it seemed unrealistic to me to be able to make a 6 figure income just from selling clothing. I've heard of SL millionaires but those are mostly real estate agents. And heh I don't expect to be able to quit my RL job selling cosmetics in SL. I recently discovered a make up store named Adored and it just inspired me to try making my own and possibly selling them.
  9. So I've been considering starting up a small business in SL, selling cosmetics and possibly skins in the future when I've improved my skills, and been contemplating whether it is going to be worth it or not. I imagine the biggest money makers are obviously land owners and people that create sex beds/toys/animations etc. I saw a person within SL say yesterday that they used to make six figures just from selling clothing and cosmetics which I thought was rubbish. I can't imagine even the top clothing makers in the market making anything over 50k a year even back in SL's heyday. I do know people used to make quite a lot of money in SL, but six figures, really? Enlighten me people. x'D
  10. I'm thinking of giving this make up away as a freebie. I also need to start testing everything on Genus now since it is becoming more popular.
  11. Just made this one and I couldn't be happier with how it came out... wanted to make an oil slick look to practise working with multi hues.
  12. Thanks guys, and thank you for all the helpful info Alyona. I will definitely make BOM versions and now that I have a few decent things to put on the market I'm looking more seriously into selling them. Just need to come up with a good store name, logo, branding designs and such.
  13. And the make up I've made, excluding eyelashes which are CatWa but the ones in the other pics are my own.
  14. Hi everyone. I just (nearly) finished making my own skin and thought I would post it here. It is not fantastic and looks a bit basic but I'm happy with it since it was my first attempt. I just noticed when taking pictures that the face is brighter than the body... lol, so I'm gonna have to fix that. I've also made some make up. I was consider selling them but don't know how to make my own applier HUDs since I know nothing at all about scripting.
  15. Yeah I figured it out after a bit, thank you. Is there any benefit for using PNGs instead of TGA?
  16. Lol I figured it out I should've been saving as PNG instead. Ignore my dumb ass lol.
