Too busy to post

But not too busy to dance with the flamingos

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.
Merlin's Christmas Presents

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.

Halloween Costumes

Nickola Martynov as the Anti-Perse Halloween 2009

The Anti-Perse: evil twin of Persephone Phoenix, SL poetry's angel of mercy

I normally wear this mass of red hair with my mermaid av, but when I tried it on with the Bloody Mary skin that came as a Halloween group gift, it was “dead” obvious what my costume had to be. The Bard’s head slowly drips blood until someone clicks on it. Then I start running in circles, screaming and flooding the place with particle blood

Skin: Bloody Mary, UZURI group gift
Eyes: Blood Eyes, hunt gift from Fallen Gods Inc.
Hair: Madison Sun, freebie collected from somewhere
Top: Smokey Black Top, in store freebie from Sascha’s Designs
Skirt: Part of Black Flowered Wedding Gown by Marinoco Fashion
Gloves: Part of DIVA Black lace cape, freebie from : bijou :
Bard head: Free sculpture by Art Laxness (modified)

Merlin pulled together a wonderful Hunter S. Thompson costume. As soon as I can get him to stand still for a photograph, I’ll update the post.
