Meanwhile here are 10 things I dislike

Posted on

I wrote about 10 things I love in SL a couple of days ago so here is my opposite list.

1) Customer service people calling me hun/dear/honey – my name is *right there* just use it, hun/dear may be a term of endearment where you come from in the world, but I don’t live in your street and where I come from its patronising.

2) Events that I can’t find, I see promos of events and I search inworld, I google, find the official blog and no slurls.  If I can’t find you, I can’t spend my $L there.

3)  Stores I can’t find, the slurl listed is wrong/outdated so I will check the creators profile and they don’t have their store in their picks, again, if I can’t find you, I can’t spend my $L with you.

4) Skins that don’t have hand and feet appliers in the pack as standard.  I know there are 101 different mesh parts that all need appliers and it must be hellish for creators to deal with but hands and feet are pretty basic and I don’t understand creators who put the loudmouth in as standard but not the damn feet.

5) Controversial one now, Standard Sizing.  My issue is not with the idea, but the shapes themselves, there are not 6 shapes, its 1 shape in 6 incrementally larger sizes, there is no variety, there is no short busty with hips or tall and slender, its the same slim shape with big boobs with no belly, no arse.  I know things are improving with mesh bodies and fitted mesh, but SS is around for a good while yet.

6) Morphs.  Morphs in all its forms, from Morphed ads, to Morphed blog pics.  I even dislike SL avies pasted onto RL backdrops, its just jarring.

7) Mesh stuff thats invisible on the inside.  Dresses and skirts are the worst offenders.

8) People who won’t use cuts on their blogs, when I’m checking a feed I just want to see 1 or 2 pictures and then if I’m interested I’ll click through for the rest, I don’t want to see 7+ shitty pictures of the same crappy dress in different colours in huge sizes taking up an entire page of a feed.

9) Rp’ers who insist on dragging me into their RP without my consent, I used to RP when I first joined SL, but I kept it to the RP sim I RP’d on, I have no interest in dealing with your master slave act while I’m trying on a skin, and I certainly don’t want to have to translate your version of a speech impediment when you are asking me for a favour.

10) Security.  I know that some people have had real issues in the past and I do understand why people need security on their land.  However it’s so annoying when you tp somewhere that you’ve tp’d to before and it’s got a new owner with a hair trigger orb that boots you before you even have a chance to select another location.  It’s worse when their security encroaches onto your land and tries to boot you home, over and over.

Meanwhile how about some shoes to go with that hair?

Posted on

I am sure that most of you have already been to the hair fair, although it could always warrant at least 1 more visit before it closes right? just in case you’ve missed another gem right?


If you have already bought the whole of hair fair, now you need some new shoes to go with them?  21 Shoe Event is now open only for today, and there are 10 pairs of original shoes from 5 designers all available exclusively for the event.


Above, from KoiKoi, below from Hucci onliy for this event.

Meanwhile my top ten

Posted on

I’ve been thinking about SL clothing/skins/hair/accessories that I will always buy, always on the lookout for,and came up with my own person top ten.

1) Skins with light boob shading for us with small chesticular regions

2) Hats, always hats, I don’t mind hats on their own, or hat hairs, I just want more hats please

3) Patterns.

4) Hair with wispy bits

5) Huds, clothes huds, hair huds, love a hud I do.  It cuts down on so much inventory

6) Freckles

7) Shoes that look like you can do some real damage to someone

8) Mesh clothes that don’t have enormous knockers so I have giant gaping areas.

9) Skins with strong dark eyebrows

10) Houses and furniture that looked ‘lived in’ a bit worn and not pristine looking


Now if you are going to do your own, don’t be boring and just say Hair! Shoes! be specific, like I like black hair that is actually black. But also don’t be a kiss arse and just list a load of designers that are you thirsty for.



What I wanted to show you today was some new releases, the sandal boots from Hucci, which as usual come with a colour change hud to change different areas of the boot.
