Celebration

This is a fun post to show the surprise that my Brazilian twin gave me for my birthday. It was the sweetest thing and we really had fun and as you can see the wine went to our heads below.

Go check out her pictures on her awesome blog and flickr where you can get all the credits for the decor and what she is wearing and her little one is wearing. I will update my post soon with what I am wearing and my little one is wearing.

Enjoy what’s left of the weekend!

Updated with credits and a new picture… to show the funny things we did after the little ones went.  The  poor animals just looked at us.

Thank you for the lovely surprise Lotus.. it meant a lot to me. ♥

Also.. to complete my birthday celebrations I want to give a shout out to Exis and Jules, for inviting me out dancing.  I had a fabulous time!!

Little Alex {Sydney}

The name of the mesh head that little me, otherwise known as Sydney, is wearing really couldn’t be more perfect in being called Alex considering that my avatar’s name is Alexa.  It’s made by the Toddleedoo Store, whom is also the creator behind the mesh bodies made for toddleedoos.

I wasn’t sure what to expect with the head, but I have been pleasantly surprised with how easy it blended with the mesh body and applying the skin to using the animations and utilities Hud.  I did find that the head is smaller, which meant that some of my favorite older hairs were a bit of an issue. Something I’ll have to work on a little later.  I’m wearing skin that came with the head, though it works with Omega so you can use any skin, tattoo or eyes that utilizes that system. The last picture shows some of the animations included and below credits you can find more information on everything that is included. The mesh head is now available at the Skin Fair and afterwards will probably be available at the main store.

The rest of the items that I am showing are by Buglets, starting with the cute dress that I am wearing called Hallie. It’s available at the new round of Ninety-Nine.  The socks were a Fifty Linden Friday item for little kids. This event doesn’t seem to be featured on Seraphim, but it is exactly like the regular one only it’s children’s items. The crown is part of the ‘Willows’ outfit and available now at the main store. The wand was the prize for the Shop Hop event that’s now over, though you might want to check the store and get more information.

Have a great Sunday!

ALPHA
SHAPE
EYEBROWS
HEAD
EXTRA TATTOO
UTILITIES HUD
ANIMATION HUD
SKIN APPLIER
OUTDATED VERSIONS
Let’s see them all one by one….

==ALPHA==
This is a Legacy Alpha Layer to Hide your own Legacy Shape Head. It only hides the Head so if you are wearing a mesh body with its own Alpha please use “Add” option for this. It’s modify so you can edit it and add Alpha to Upper and Lower part to hide your entire avatar with one single Alpha layer.

==SHAPE==
You can find both ToddleeDoo Baby and Kid Shape, FEMALE (this head is compatible with ToddleeDoo Girl Bodies ONLY at the moment), FULL PERM. Feel free to customize your look and share as you desire 🙂

==EYEBROWS==
Eyebrows Style also affects your eyebrows Head look! I suggest you to give a try to this and enjoy customization!

==HEAD==
This is the Mesh Head itself.
It’s worn on Chin but you can decide to wear it in any other attachment as you like.
it Includes the face, the nape, the ears, left and right eye, teeth and tongue and ONE tattoo layer.
You can change the skin with the Skin Applier in the box (see Skin Applier*), but it’s compatible with ToddleeDoo Appliers (if they also include the Head Texture) and Omega (see Omega*)

==EXTRA TATTOO==
This is an additional tattoo layer.
It works exactly as the one embedded in the Head itself but it’s useful for those who desire to wear two or more different tattoo at the same time.
➀ Wear it on rezz on ground
➁ Apply your desired Extra Tattoo (through Appliers or just Edit if you own the texture)
➂ Delete the script inside the Extra Tattoo
➃ Rename this Extra Tattoo Layer with a indicative Name
➄ Take and Wear
ATTENTION: both the Head and this Layer are affected by appliers, resulting double Darker or Solid. once you prepared your Extra Tattoo layer, please remember to reset or take off the Head Tattoo itself

If you can’t take off your Tattoo you can use this 􀀀

==UTILITIES HUD==
This HUD includes the Alpha options (hide Nape, Eyes or Ears), Teeth (choose within 6 full or missing teeth set) and Ears (choose within 4 in or out styles, and fix position).
Close to Minimize the HUD.

==ANIMATION HUD==
This HUD include all Animations Available at today for this Head.
They are divided in Moods as: Steady, Happy, Sad, Silly, Eyes, Interactive and Undeform.
Most Animations includes more styles, this is because of personal choice but also because of Shapes: infact a certain animation looks different from a custom Shape than another, even resulting deformed in some cases.
You can also combine some of them.
Are you Deformed? try the Undeform Button on the LEFT, if it doesn’t help you can Force an Undeform: **be sure to wear the Alex Default Shape** and hit the Undeform button on RIGHT (where the attention sign is).
To Minimize the HUD press the little Button on the top of the HUD.

==SKIN APPLIER==
This is a simple 4 Tone Skin Applier: wear it and touch your desired tone.

==OUTDATED VERSIONS==
This Mesh Head have been distributed since very first eta versions, and some of you designed and distributed your shapes with those old heads.
Anyhow I kept on improve the rigging and some of the older shapes may not look as expected on newest Heads versions.
In this case you can find in this box or the OutDated Obsolete Heads and Tattoo Layers.

==OMEGA==
This Head is “Omega Advanced”, it means you can add to it any Skin, Tattoo and Eyes made with Omega Appliers!
You just need the ToddleeDoo Relay Kit (which also works for the ToddleeDoo and TweeneeDoo body), and keep the Head HUD worn.
You can Hide it out of your screen, you don’t have to touch it in any way.
Just wear your desired Omega Applier and use it as usual.
REMEMBER: some Omega Applier send different Body Parts Textures by touching the button in different position: if an applier doesn’t work as expected please try again touching it in a different spot.

Pretty in Pink

0122ps2final

In just under two days the doors to the Arcade will open and while I haven’t made my own list, there is a few things that I definitely want.  Today I am showing the delightful collection of the Baby Daycare by BoOgErS.  There are two rares and 13 commons, which can be viewed at the creators photo page here.  I also listed the details below credits on the collection.  These bears retire April 1, 2017, so make sure you grab any you like before then!

I’m also showing several items from Buglets, starting with the items that  little me is wearing.  The cute dress that has little hearts all over the front is a main store release. The cute little teddy shoes are at the new round of Thimble, which is a kids event.  The bear I’m holding is one of the wearable versions in the BoOgErS collection.

The bed is a new release that is available at the Little Events, another kids event. Though it’s only there until the end of the month, otherwise you will have to find it at the store after the event. The white photo wreath above the bed just under the canopy is Buglets group gift for this month and comes in 4 colors. The last item being shown is the rainbow balloons mobile by Aphrodite Shops that comes with a re-sizer.

Enjoy!

I’m back again before the hour strikes midnight and my head hits the pillows to show you all this cuteness.  The little one came out to play to show some of the new releases by Buglets and BoOgErS.  She’s wearing some pajamas from the Sweet Dreams Gacha from Buglets available now at the Playroom Event that ends at the end of the month. The bib also worn is by Buglets and this is available at Thimble, another child/kid event.

Some of the decor that I am featuring is also part of the Sweet Dreams Gacha, which are the pillow pile, snuggle pillow and the teddies.  The teepee is a new release at the mainstore for BoOgErS.  There are several colors and designs, so go check them out.

I’m also using the Victorian Doll House by Pillows, which is their participation at Draftsman.  I will be featuring this house tomorrow giving you the view from the outside.

I can’t go without mentioning the little baby, which is just so adorable and will probably be showing him again soon.

Have a great night or morning!

Merry Christmas!

044-1ps

Today has been a day of baking in preparation for tomorrow and I am lucky to have several sisters and also a niece, so that we get to share in the making of desserts and food.  Today I got assigned making a fudge candy, another milk chocolate dessert and apple bread. The last being a family favorite, which I’ve been making ever since my aunt shared her recipe with me on a trip to Seattle back in 2007.

Though I wanted to take some time to come blog my Christmas post, so that I could wish all my readers, fellow bloggers and everyone who drops by a very blessed Merry Christmas.  May your day be filled with love and laughter, no matter who you spend it with.

While I would have wanted to do a single picture together with little me, it’s just impossible lately to log both of us at the same time to do it.

Again, have a wonderful day tomorrow!!

Merry Christmas!!!!

Keeping warm

006ps2

Today I’m featuring a family item and stuff for the little ones.  BoOgErS has a family blanket with a few poses for you and your family to indulge in your sitting on the couch moments.  As you can see it works well on the floor too.  I made the blanket smaller here to fit my scene and adjusted the poses to accomodate that resize.  I’m also showing another cute bear in the gacha set at the Arcade.  This one has a toast head called “Terst Berr”.

The other items being showcased are all by Buglets, which most are from her Advent Calendar this year. You have to be a group member of her store and you can still grab the previous days gifts if you missed a day. The claus bell is a gift for The Play Room event, so you have to be a member of that group to grab it.  Buglets also has a gacha at that event, so make sure you check it out.

Enjoy the rest of your Friday and stay warm!

Working to earn lindens for the Arcade

syd-033ps

The winter season is also one of my favorite to photograph in Second Life.  It’s fun and festive to put together these winter scenes.  I think part of the draw is that I don’t have snow or a heavy winter other than cold temperatures every so often where I have lived in Florida.

I had fun putting this scene together using the emperor penguins by Jian, which are available at the Tannenbaum Holiday Market and the adorable holiday husky, which is from Jian’s Holiday Huskies gacha at the Arcade. The cute bear with long hair next to me is by BoOgErS, another bear in the collection also at the Arcade. The snowman pail is also another common in the collection by Hive at the Arcade.

As you can see that’s why lil me is selling snowballs just to earn some lindens for the Arcade that just opened today.
