Topless Tuesday Spotlight

Several ideas were discarded while planning this week’s Topless Tuesday picture but I had a firm one in mind when I logged in and zipped off to the sandbox. Then this one happened.

Topless Tuesday  Feb 9 2016 - In The Spotlight

A stairway photo prop I had been meaning to use waved to me from my Inventory and then I remembered that this week I finally got around to applying my fave blue skin to my Lolas Delicqs and I bought some new jewelry and …. You get the idea. Best laid plans of mice and Uccies, right? Have a Happy Topless Tuesday!!

Topless Tuesday Demon Update

Way back in 2012 I sumbitted several photos to Second Life’s Busted Magazine‘s Halloween issue and as luck would have it, they were accepted. Today’s Topless Tuesday picture is an update, of sorts, of one of those pictures.

The original is below. A Lumae skin on a Maitreya mesh body replaced a Heartsick skin on a standard body. Interestingly, the same creator made both skins. The older, user-tinted Lolas Pushup breasts were replaced by Lolas Delicqs with a skin applier. Mesh yoga pants from Blueberry in the new photo instead of some Linden-made pants and boots that I still like round out the major changes. No tentacles this time and the knife is now sheathed in the hair.

The new set I made is nicer and the lighting is much better, IMHO. I hope you enjoy. I might get around to re-creating the whole series one day. Happy Topless Tuesday!

Bay City History Pavilion

BAY CITY, SL (28th January, 2016) – For Bay City Citizens, one of the highlights of Second Life’s® 10th Birthday Community Celebration in 2013 was a display highlighting the history of Bay City and the Bay City Alliance. It was long-hoped to bring the display back to Bay City after the event.

Thanks to landowner Sylvia Tamalyn and History Pavilion producer Marianne McCann, as well as additional donations by Uccello and Angela Poultry-Seale and Laetizia “Tish” Coronet, this display now graces Bay City, hosted just west of the Bay City Fairgrounds. It can be found at Bay City – Molesworth (235, 115, 25).

The build, which will officially open in conjunction with Mole Day festivities this Saturday, is already welcoming visitors from Bay City and beyond. It boasts a chronological history of the city as well as a Bay City poster display, a wall featuring past and present Ms Bay City winners, and a photo display of prominent places around the city.

Bay City is a mainland community, developed by Linden Lab® and home to the Bay City Alliance. The Bay City Alliance was founded in 2008 to promote the Bay City regions of Second Life and provide a venue for Bay City Residents and other interested parties to socialize and network. It is now the largest group for Residents of Bay City.

For more information, please contact Sylvia Tamalyn or Marianne McCann.

Mole Day 2016

 

Mole Day 2016

BAY CITY, SL (24th January, 2016) – The mainland community of Bay City welcomes all Second Life® members to their annual “Mole Day” celebration on the 30th of January, 2016. The event will be held in the Bay City Fairgrounds in North Channel (SLurl).

Initially honored in 2010 by Residents of Bay City, Mole Day is set aside to show appreciation for The Moles and their many contributions to Bay City and the rest of the Second Life™ Grid.

Normally held on the same day as Groundhog Day, this year’s Mole Day will be observed three days early, taking advantage of the weekend. The event will feature a performance by Maximillion Kleen beginning at 11:00 a.m. SLT, following by a DJ set by GoSpeed Racer at noon.

“Moles” are members of The Linden Department of Public Works (LDPW). The LDPW is a program focused on improvements related to the experience of living on, or visiting the Linden Mainland. The LDPW is a team of Resident builders, scriptwriters, and others to create new content on Linden Lab’s behalf and to the benefit of all. These Residents all have Second Life accounts with the last name “Mole.”

Moles build the infrastructure of Second Life: the public roads and railways, items in our coastal waterways and protected lands, and even larger scale projects like the Linden Homes regions, premium content, and experiences, and much more.

Second Screen Fursday

Happy Fursday! See what’s on Clever Kitty’s monitor?  Maybe we should zoom in …

Second Life on an iPad?!?! What sort of feline magic is this?

With $8 USD burning a hole in my pocket (not really, but I’m giving up my weekly Burger King treat), I downloaded Duet, for my iPad (normally $14.95 USD) and grabbed the free desktop companion. A couple reboots later and Voilà! almost. Really, I had to spend several minutes with not-so-good documentation figuring out how it works. Experienced dual monitor users shouldn’t have a problem.

Sure, I have some free software that does this and there’s probably a way to Airplay this somewhere, but Duet is hardwired so there is no wireless delay. Pretty nifty. Not exactly sure what I’m going to use it for. My wife likes to share YouTube music videos with me and since I run Second Life full-screen, I could easily toss her links to a browser on the second display rather than go through the tedious shared link process in the browser.

Space Babe!

After acquiring the Hero outfit from Addams, a vendor at the Epiphany gacha, I wondered what to do with it. Sure, I could have made a super hero costume, but the main piece struck me as a sort of wetsuit and I thought through several options. But when I was trying on hair I got the idea for Space Babe!!

Space Babe Comic

Or Space Gal. Not sure which I like better. The latter is more in line with the 50s Sci-Fi B-Movie idea that struck me. So I took quite a few pix with the idea of “Warholizing” the results.

I used various filters in the Second Life viewer Snapshot filter after choosing a good Windlight photo. Click the photo above to see a description on Flickr, including how the comic book version was made.

I also wondered what a frame of film from such a movie might look like so I used the Toy Camera filter in Snapshot.

Despite liking this result, I know I could grunge it a bit to look more like an old film frame, even going as far as to turning it into a strip of film, but I’ll setttle for this.

Marianne McCann contacted me and asked if she could use a version of the version top-right of the quadriptych at the top, shot with the 70s Color filter. I hope to see it soon.
