A makeover was needed

Meet my alt;

Actually, she is my old main, but I more or less abandoned her back in 2008. Before that I wasn’t really that into shopping and styling and photography and such, so you can imagine what a mess I had to work with.

Too tall, leg sliders maxed out, too small hands..well, you can imagine. So naturally I just said “screw this”, completely changed her shape up, got her a mesh body, hands, feets and a head. It’s been fun to play around with something completely different. She’s even shorter then Shyn, so I’ve had to fiddle a bit to make her proportions look right, but I think I’m getting there. Naturally she won’t be taking over as my main, I still adore Shyn way too much for that, but she is fun.

She was still lacking in the clothes department, so I took her around to C88 and The Body Mod Expo and ended up with some goodies.

SL got a little more fun again. I’ve been in a rut, as you know, stuck only creating for events, not going out and having fun, exploring or shopping. I now shop for something that’s not “me”, and that’s interesting. It has also been interesting to play around in Photoshop. With all the mesh fixing what previously took quite some time to repair in Photoshop, I can now spend my energy on playing around with different effects. This time I tried out a few quick actions, and they turned out alright for something that only took minutes.

Never let me go

What are you thankful for this year? Second Life Bloggers, a group on Facebook is having a contest, just simply blog and tell the world what you are most thankful for.

I have quite a few things to be thankful of. From the little things like I’m improving my pictures, my blog traffic is going up, my roo’s are giving me good babies…alrighty I know, thats not much to be thankful for, thats more things that makes me happy. But then on to the bigger things like I have some absolutely awesome friends I love to bits, I still kinda have my health, my 15 year old cat is still doing quite well, I have a place to live, food to eat, clean water to drink. From all the little things to the big things.

However, it still took me close to two days to figure out how, and what, to write in this post. Not because I didn’t know what to write about, but because I don’t want it to sound silly.

What I want to write about..and what I am most thankful for, is that woman posing with me here. I can think of no other person I can say “Oi, put your new pants on and come pose with me topless” at 3 am to. A lot has happened over the years I’ve know her, both good and bad for both of us, and she has always been at my side, never further away then an instant message, a message on skype or a simple text, just as I have been for her. She picks me up when I’m down, makes me laugh when I need it and is all too happy to goof off with me when we are both up way to late to be quite sane. While she may constantly be busy working with her store and trying to make sense of our meeroos, she always has a second over to listen.

Quite simply put, she my best friend and I love her to bits. She is the most loving, caring and generous person I have met and I wish everyone could have a friend like her. I’ll just stop here before it gets all mushy and lovey-dovey or she will spank me when I get back online >.>

Kinu, I am thankful, grateful even, to be able to call you my friend. Never let me go indeed.
