What Fresh SL – why that name, anyway?

So many moons ago, when I was but a wee slip of a lad, I found the work of Dorothy Parker. She cracked me up hugely- just such a delightfully vicious wit to her. When I came to making an SL blog, I remembered a quote attributed to her (though apparently not actually something she said) in a biography. According to her biographer, she’d respond to the doorbell by saying ‘what fresh hell can this be?’, or would answer the telephone with ‘what fresh hell is this?’. From there, it was a short step to What Fresh SL as a blog title.

I’ve been having a lot of fun learning some basic skills on web design and graphics over the past year, so I figured it was time to trot out an actual logo. Or byline. Or a masthead. Anyway. A thing, what I graphicked.

Hopefully I’ll get plenty of use out of it- I had a lot of fun making it, at any rate!

Thrift Shop – Blissiere Scarves

I like keeping an eye on what turns up at The Thrift Shop. Every so often there’s something stunning that maybe I didn’t realize was for a male avatar, initially. So, here’s one that I am extremely pleased with.  These scarves are from Blissiere:  they come in two FOUR fat packs, with differing prints and colors on them.  Here’s the two fatpacks I had unopened: you can see the varying textures that are available here. These are intended to be unisex, so the creator didn’t do them as rigged mesh to allow you to resize them to fit your avatar (if you’re a kid, say…), or adjust how they’re sitting on your avatar (if you’re a guy). blissiere scarves - fatpacks Continue reading

A few photos from out and about.

So it’s been a bit since I updated, and while I’m nearly asleep, it occurs to me I’ve gotten some good photos so I should share them.

I went by the Xiasumi School Festival event and played the living heck out of 8f8’s gacha there- this is a photo of why.  You can play that machine – and pick up a lot of other goods – at the event; there’s more data about it over here at Eloquence.

There’s a whole new slew of goodies over at the ‘Stuff lounge from Menstuff and Womenstuff designers: as I blog the Homestuff, though, I focused on those. More previews to come shortly at the Homestuff blog (and yes, I’ll link): in the meantime, the stools and table are from Follow Us !!, and the ‘Coffeeology’ poster is from PBM Enterprises.

I did a couple of poses for the Kamera Klub/Soundproof’s ‘living painting’ of Hieronymus Bosch’s ‘Garden of Earthly Delights’; none of my poses here.

Oh, and I made a logo for the pose shop.

So yeah, I’ve been a bit of a busy bee, but there’s been some fun to be had!
