  1. While I was making the shape for mine, I noticed some sliders that help to reduce that "dragged down" effect. Increased eye opening * Increased eye bags * Increased nose bridge width * I compensated for these by also increasing the upper eyelid fold a bit. However it did mean needing to switch out the rigged eyes for another pair of unrigged ones, so I could adjust the position of them down slightly. I still needed the eye skin fix that Maitimo made though. My skin is made for LAQ heads, not Catwa. You can see that it's dragging my eye makeup down too. Overall though, I was very pleased with how it turned out. It's a pretty head (can't see how it would work for guys though, unless it's for teens/boys/androgynous people who want a feminine face with a male mesh body).
  2. I'm usually a furry these days but I picked up the free Catwa head just to try it, and fell completely in love with it. No duck-lips here. Thank you @Maitimo for the eye fix, it works perfectly. Random question: does anyone know why, when I take a raw snapshot using Firestorm, there is always a line of black pixels along the top edge of the image? Is there a fix for this, besides Photoshop?
  3. Since switching to being furry, I've run up against a problem. I am over 50 in RL, but all the furry clubs I've found seem to be populated with people at least 10 years younger than my kids, which means that we have next to nothing in common with one another. All they seem to talk about is anime and video-games, neither of which I know anything about. Do mature furries exist at all? If so, where can I find them? At the very least, I'd like to find a furry club that plays music I can stand, instead of endless rave and house. Are there any older furry rockers/punks out there, or am I unique? Failing that, any friendly general rock/punk clubs that welcome furries and are active in local chat?
  4. I settled early on a punk/rock style, favouring leather and tartan, and sometimes more gothic style. With my body shape I don't look good in pants so I stick mostly with dresses and skirts.For hair I like mohawks, and Harlequin-style bunches. Another firm feature of my style is my body shape; short and plump, as I am in RL. I like to be different, and beung short and chubby is definitely different. A few days ago, I decided that I didn't want to be human. Because SL is a place where we can be anything, and why not be something else when you have the chance? I didn't specifically plan to be a furry, it just kind of happened that way. So now I am a wolf. However, I am keeping my punk/rock style and my body shape the same. Ironically, I have discovered that there's a whole subgenre of plump furries with enormous breasts, some of whom make mine look petite, so over in the furry community I am maybe not so different after all...
  5. I haven't even found a friend in SL yet, never mind a friend with a "spark". But even if I did, I wouldn't take it to RL, it would have to stay within SL only. I'm happily married in RL, and have been long enough that my kids have grown up, moved out and started families of their own.
  6. I had a feeling that I wouldn't stay human for long. After toying for a while with the idea of being a vampire, and rejecting it, I'm now a wolf. And a darn purty one too.
  7. oh that explains it. I crashed on a teleport and now I can't get back in.
  8. That's what I did. I bought a LAQ head on its own first, and got the hud a few weeks later. Although I did try other demos and based on the look I wanted, I narrowed it down to one from LAQ and one from Catwa. I chose LAQ because of this pricing strategy.
  9. I was reading a gaming subforum in Reddit and someone said "is Second Life even a thing anymore?" and everyone else said "LOL, no". I'd heard of it before, but this time I happened to have a spare few hours and decided to try it. I didn't plan to be anything but human, but I was rather ordinary to begin with: Then I discovered some freebie clothes and hair that were a bit punk, and I thought, yes, I've found my style here. I also decided to make my avatar a bit heavier, partly for realism and partly because when everyone is a skinny supermodel, skinny supermodels are boring. I get a lot of positive comments on my shape (unlike RL, lol). It took about 3 weeks to decide that I would stay, and bought enough L$ to buy a mesh body and head. For now, I am still human, though I've activated the "vampire teeth" on my head's hud, so maybe I'll be a vampire. But I have seen some amazing non-human avatars, so who knows. Maybe I won't stay human at all.
  10. These are beautiful, like watercolour paintings.
  11. Today is a purple day with new skin, new makeup and a new tattoo. Skin is the "Natasha" group gift from LAQ, eyeshadow is from Izzie's, lipstick from Alaskamentro (which is having a massive 10L sale on the MP right now), tattoo from JTs.
  12. Teal is not my usual colour, but I think I like it.
  13. I take nearly all my pics at Sn@tch City. The area round the mainstore isn't very grungy but if you head off towards the rover/canal, there are some detailed grungy-looking back alleys that might be suitable.
