Last time we left off with flat, half-textured feet - time to break a few bones and set the foot into position for high heels. And in case you missed it: part 1 and part 3

Dev diary 1 - groundwork

I love reading other people's WIP blogs, SL or not, seeing how stuff evolves over time and the processes involved. So I thought it might be fun to write a little post series myself, chronicling a lassitude & ennui project, and since I'm just getting started on a project with a deadline of mid february, the timing is perfect. More after the cut, if you're curious, or skip directly to part two or part three

new at lassitude & ennui for The Cafe Hunt


Time for some freebies! I'm participating in the Cafe Hunt, and this is my gift - a texture-change neck tie in two versions, one with roses and one with pearls. Permissions mod / copy / no trans, and I've included two sizes for your convenience. The textures are color-coordinated with the rest of the Ophelia series and the Flora boots and Doll boots - and YES IT COMES IN PINK AS WELL - only I was lazy and didn't put all colors on the poster. So there. Oh and it's all sculpt. No evil mesh.

Want this? Find the steaming coffee cup that has been very badly hidden in plain sight, in my main store. Hint: it's in the mesh section.

And here's the Cafe Hunt blog if you'd like to do the full hunt.

White and cream brocade


And holy @#$@, shadows are fixed


"Official browser updated," I thought to myself. "I think I'll try shadows and see if they're still broken on my MacBook Pro here." And lo, they were fixed. Not only that, but the way to change environment was so much better that I managed to make the lighting decent! It's been a long time, Second Life. Oh you frustrate me so. But it's all worth it to photo Jackal's new Selene mesh boots all purty (below). Go see these shoes, and eternally-autumnal Nouveau, (over here)

new at lassitude & ennui: Selene rigged mesh ankle boots

Looks like I'm late to my own party! So I released those boots earlier this week and then totally forgot about blogging them. How embarrassing.

I finally took the plunge and made some rigged mesh boots - again! Despite all the drawbacks of not being able to resize, and Qarl's mesh deformer looming on the horizont, these were just too much fun when rigged to pass it up. So! Victorian ankle boots, yadda yadda, but with more of a heel than I usually make. And with a row of cute little buttons. And they move with your ankle! I didn't expect this to make such a difference, but it really livens up poses. Enough text!
