Presents!

Christmas Hair I have been longing for this hair with the soft scarf from Maitreya for quite some time. I was thrilled to find it in my stocking on Christmas along with the Prim Puppeteer vendor’s pack!

I used the free version of Prim Puppeteer to animate the monkey and other critters in our Rube Goldberg machine at Burning Life this year. But the free version doesn’t let you transfer the animated prims, so I’m looking forward to being able to create new animated works to give away or sell.

Merlin got handmade gifts this year. The blue plaid “house pants” were on his wish list. They have a string tie at the waist and I made them roomy and soft for sitting around and watching videos at home.

The telescope was fun to make. I bought a kit of sculpt maps from Twisted Thorn to make the telescope parts. The telescope base piece is repeated in the stool legs.

The telescope, stool and the rug are linked together with the rug as the root prim. When Merlin sits on the stool in the custom pose, his camera view is locked inside the scope peering up at the inside face of the front lens textured with space images. He can scroll through images I downloaded from the NASA website by clicking the lens and he can add his own images to the selection by dropping them into the root prim.

  1. funny, i am not much of a scarf wearer, as a kid i did, but i freak out a little wearing scarves now

    my paranoia prevails! =D

  2. As pretty as that scarf is, Ener, I don’t think it would stand up to our Canadian winters. October, maybe, but certainly not January. šŸ™‚

  3. wow, that scarf is amazing! send one up here – it was -15C last nite!
