  1. I try not to wear things by popular creators that I purchased from super recent shopping events, and if I do I rarely wear a full set together because I love to mix and match with other brands. In my opinion, the hardest thing to resist wearing straight out of the store is hair. I have so many hair twins out in the world! Good quality mesh hair is far less plentiful. @Scylla Rhiadra Wear your dress!
  2. My first car was a Ford Focus, but I learned to drive mostly in my mother's Volvo. It took a long time for my dad to let me out on the road, on account of my lead foot.
  3. I shower twice daily. The one in the morning is very short , to knock the sleep out of me because I don't drink coffee. The one I take in the evening is more of an event. I have really long hair that I like to air dry, and that only works if I shower in evening. If I did that in the morning, I'd look like a creature from the swamp for half the day.
  4. That picture is really troubling . @Chic Aeon I had to log out of the website in order to see it .
  5. Lelukta's heads come with gestures that are activated by using certain emojis . So if I ever use in local I do smile momentarily which I like. Otherwise I try to keep my face fairly neutral when I am just out and about.
  6. The top hair is from Tram. Not sure who makes the second though.
  7. Welcome back to SL Adrian! It can certainly be a daunting task to create an updated avatar. It can be complicated process due to the nonintuitive-ness of it all. But rest assured, with some patience and time, the mystery of avatar customization will unravel itself. Signature Gianni is a great choice for a body. I would caution anyone against Belleza bodies at least right now, because they have not been updated to fit the universal neck that was introduced last year. Without the update, you would always have a seam on your neck with newer heads. As for getting help with your neck pro
  8. I know these do not have the circle loop you are looking for, but I thought I would share them with you anyway. Tonktastic's owner takes great care in making high quality, super detailed mesh. I love his captain boots. I was not able to find a demo on the MP for these but you might check out their store in world. Here is a picture of them from Flickr.
  9. For closer to the knee length, I'd maybe check out Coco or Fashionably Dead. They have a lot of cute styles, even some longer shorts as well if that is your bag.
  10. The first picture looks like when I don't have on Advanced Lighting. Has that been ticked off by chance? I know when you mess around with the graphic slider, it might turn on/off certain features.
  11. Backdrops are a lot of fun, and add ton of interest to your picture without a lot of work. I like them better than say a flat prim because they make me feel as if I am in the world . If you are interested in buying some for yourself, I definitely recommend checking the weekend sales as a lot of the big name stores that make them will put out their older releases on a temporary discount (typically under 100 lindens) in world. Those stores often have group gift back drops too.
  12. I remember when voice hit the grid back in the early days of SL, it was quite a revelation to discover several of the people I was friends with were actually men with female avatars. Fortunately for me, I was not interested in them in a romantic way so no complications there, but I did talk about "lady things" with them. I suppose that could have felt embarrassing or hurtful to some, but these people I knew didn't seem like total strangers to me even with this new knowledge. I would even say it helped me realize that I could have an actual close friendship with a man without it having to be
  13. I would say the difficult part of using a flat background is creating the illusion of being part of it. Dissonance in color, picture scale, and art style can make your subject look pasted on instead of creating a unified image. There are ways to use flat backgrounds however. When composing your image, try pulling the background back away from your subject/ avatar, creating a foreground to focus on. Use depth of field that blurs the background out a bit. You can create DOF in post, but I think it usually looks better when you create it in the viewer.
  14. Only thing I can think to add is trying a different, less crowded region. I will sometimes get that message when I am in area with a lot scripts/other avatars in it. It usually clears itself up once I somewhere lag free. If you are wearing any other HUDS as well, take those off.
