sweet touch

This look has a sweet touch to it, because of the babyblue colors of the dress. I kinda took a long shot with this picture. As two times the textures didn’t rezz, I crashed almost 10 times and my eyes are all over the place. I guess there is a new challenge in working with mesh items and fashion pics for me! I can’t remember from which hunt I got the scarf but I think it has got to be the turkey jerky hunt which runs until the end of november. Hope you like it! The dress is the VIP groupgift from Grafittiwear. Also I’m on twitter and like to get in touch!

my first mesh head

cwnrgmmueaejz0uCall me crazy but next month is my 10th rezz day and this is the first day I am the proud owner of an mesh head. I had my old head for almost a decade…. so you could image it is hard to say goodbye. Only just now when I bought this head and played around with it a bit I got really curious about the new head from Catwa which is a bento mesh head and strawberry singh blogged about it in great detail here. From her video I understand that you can use the sliders to change the head featurs. Sooo that should be a whole new dimension in creating unique avi’s again!

Happy SL-day!

Sharing my outfit today. I picked up a few, no actually almost everything new in this pictures. As I have been away for a few years out of SL. I have been in SL since 2006 (gosh almost 10yrs!) and have been very active blogging in 2009-2010 then…. RL happened *sigh*. I did try to get back in SL in 2012, 2013 and 2015 finding out a lot of the settings and new things (mesh clothing and avies!) came to SL. Let’s hope this time RL doesn’t get in the way so much ;).

Playing dress up doll and playing around in SL. Wow I’ve missed SL and everything about it, things have changed! I have to learn to manage the SL client again, and my inventory needs a spring-cleaning, hehe! But first I need to go shopping!


Yeah! Also rented me a small shop to get things started again! ;) Come visit….

Meeting up with friends

Although not back in to (free)-fashion blogging (jet ;)), I did meet up with my good friend Renee from FabFree today. We got us some great dresses from a great designer, Nicky Ree. And, obviously, took pictures together!

Back in Focus!

I’ve been out of SL for a while, maybe a year. My last blogpost on this blog was in 2010, and on FabFree in 2011 :)!! But I’ve still been following my lovely friend bloggers at FabFree and some other random blogs and feeds. I logged in today and started playing with the feature I was most curious about, which is “Depth of Field”. I loved it from pictures and love it now!
back in focus I turned my Graphics up to ‘Ultra’ and  clicked on “Depth of field”! When I turned it on, everything got blurry! I use the regular SL viewer.

back in focus

So I went with Torley’s Settings for May 2012! I love Torley btw ;), and it got me back in focus again!

Torley’s preferred settings (as of May 2012)

These are optimized for big bokeh, favoring strength over subtlety. Requires a fairly powerful graphics card, or performance will suffer:

Preparation:

  1. Tap Ctrl-0 4-6 times to zoom in and narrow the field of view, creating a more intimate relationship with the tightly-focused subject matter.
  2. Select Advanced menu > Debug Settings.
  3. Set RenderVolumeLODFactor = 8 or even 16, although that may be overkill. This makes it so curves don’t look jaggy when zoomed up close.
  4. As-needed, set RenderAvatarLODFactor = 8 or another high value too.

And the specific DoF settings:

    • CameraAspectRatio = 1.5
    • CameraFieldOfView = 10
      • Higher is more blur, although you’ll need to vary this depending on the subject’s size and your camera’s distance from it.
    • CameraFNumber = 3
      • Again, vary this to taste. Lower is more blur.
    • CameraFocalLength = 250
      • Makes it easier to get up-close and personal with the subject without fuzzing out.
    • CameraMaxCoC = 20
      • Boosted from the default of 10, a good balance.

back in focus

While taking pictures It seems that this feature asks a lot from your computers capacity as I almost crashed, hence the black screen. (Well I did crash eventually)!

back in focus

I have to take smaller pictures to get me in focus again. I love the effect of “depth of field” though, it blurres out the background nice so it doesn’t distract from the person in the picture. I love this feature, and sure will be staying around to play and take pictures in SL again! I’m also wearing MESH pants which is new to me too!

Wearing:
Pants – Maitreya – Zipper skinny pants – Pastel Mint
Top – AOHARU – OffShoulderGauzeTunic – Flower/Red
Wedges – *YS&YS* Penelope Wedge Beige
Hair – >TRUTH< Bronte – mirage
