Chips with everything

with 6 comments

 

Some more from the latest Builder’s Box today. I’m featuring a beautiful, navy walled skybox by ..::THOR::.. that’s not too large, it would be a perfect hideaway for partners. There’s curtained picture windows that look out onto a balcony and this is surrounded by a city night backdrop section. The windows will slide open allowing access to the balcony. Slotted into one side of the room there’s a raised section – you could put a bed here and a romantic dining area by the windows. The opposite side to the window has a recessed décor only doorway. The lighting inside is really nice; baked textures for light coming in from the windows spill over the floor and the rest of the room is calm and soothing.

Then there’s furniture and décor by 220ML, MADRAS, BONDI and [Krescendo] from the same Builder’s Box Edition. Thoroughly recommended and don’t forget to check out their blog for the catalogue, see below.

And as to the title – well my mum used to despair because given the choice me and my brother would always have chips with every meal!

Been around the World

with 9 comments

 

The inspiration for this scene was Chez Moi‘s World Map Décor.  Not only do we have lots of different products from around the world in this picture, the product creators also live in various far-flung places in real life – Second Life® is what draws us all together.

This is quite a mixture of products but they all match up, not least because of the modify and texture change options which certainly make furniture of this kind a lot more versatile.

*~*~*

Three close-ups of the products follow.  The first is Newchurch‘s Fiona Kitchen.  This is a modular low prim kitchen which, with a bit of judicious fiddling, will fit most kitchen spaces. All pieces are originally white but are easily tinted, so in this scene half of them are that cheerful deep orange.  Don’t look aghast – I’ve seen glaringly scarlet red kitchen units in real life, not to mention egg yolk yellow and lime green.  You can tint the prims, remove the bump/normal maps, and change the shine/specular maps as you see fit.

Several of the pieces have animations inside of them. The sink has several washing poses, the stove/oven has cooking poses, and the counter top has several food preparation poses.

 

The second close-up shows also Known as‘s Alonzo Dining set.  Those place mat settings are so useful, there’s no messing about finding separate plates, cutlery and glasses – they are all there in one quick rez.  Nice dark wood for the table and chairs, too.  I really like the shape of this set.  The chairs have great animations in them and aka has certainly thought carefully about what you need for a dining chair.  There’s poses for coffee/waiting/bored, then a Masculine menu with 6 poses, a Feminine menu with 5 poses, and a good Dining menu with suitable poses (soup/main meal/dessert/wine) for ladies and gents.

The food is from Dust Bunny’s Sweetheart Lunch  gacha.  I was very fortunate when I played on this machine – I got everything without too many repeats except for two prizes which I found on Marketplace as I didn’t want to push my luck.  I know when the Gacha Gods are smiling and when they are raising their eyebrows!

*~*~*

This is Chez Moi‘s Kensington living room set in close-up, please excuse the puppies! They are so tired out they didn’t even notice us scoffing lunch. The couch has room for 1-3 people, and it comes with 116 animations in the PG version and 180 animations in the Adult version:
~ 72 single poses (12 male animations and 12 female animations in each spot)
~ 44 animations for couples in love (22 x 2)
~ 64 intimate poses in the Adult version (32x 2)
There’s a texture change options for the throw – cream, biscuit, gold, chocolate, red, green, blue, dark grey, light grey – a great example of versatile furniture.

The Lord of Winter

with 2 comments

*~*~*

While it may be mostly Pagans who celebrate the Yule holiday, nearly all cultures and faiths have held some sort of Winter Solstice celebration or festival. Because of the theme of endless birth, life, death, and rebirth, the time of the Solstice is often associated with deities and other legendary figures.

From Norse Legend, Odin bestowed gifts at Yuletide upon his people, riding a magical flying horse across the sky. This legend may have combined with that of St. Nicholas to create the modern Santa Claus. Anyway, this is my interpretation!

*~*~*

Here’s all the Home & Garden products I used today in detail:-

Raindale
“Charfell Cabin” Updated version for The White Nights Event at The Avenue, runs through to January 6th – 35% off
Keira added a snow roof at 5 LI and string lights at 2 LI and there’s new HUD options – 5 wall colours, 5 roof colours and a winter present which will give snowy textures for some of the wooden parts and base platform. The winter version has a platform with it – 55 LI, the summer version will be 50 LI. The footprint of the cabin will be 10 by 15 metres at the default size but with Permissions of Copy/Modify this can be sized up and down.
The platform is optional and can be removed or used by itself, the Land Impact will be 8 at it’s default size of 23 by 23 metres. I think you’ll find this is a very useful piece of landscaping in it’s own right. You have a 5 option texture change HUD with the platform, too.
