I haven’t done a whole lot that’s really very interesting, I’ve spent time playing [just playing] in Second Life, and kinda-sorta making a safe park for SL kids [a project I’m beginning to think may be out of my reach]. While doing that, I was inspired to work on my osgrid parcel.
So I loaded up my beach house and snagged some copyable palm trees -all in all a half-assed affair. I was unhappy with it, and I went to snoopy’s free mall [an AWESOME resource, one I remember from when I very first hit osgrid in late nov 2009].
I snagged some trees and made a small forest on my sim. While I was there I snagged some texture packs…and looking at them something magical happened.
I made a pair of jeans. Hell, the jeans may be the best thing i ever make. So thinking of that, I decided to play around and I made an outfit for myself:
Except for the hair, I made that outfit [modified eloh eliot skin, home made clothes made w/ snoopy freebie textures]
Oh good lord, it’s almost painful to look at, at once a million miles away from the grass clothes I made in 2008, and yet very eeerily similar [jaggy seams are jaggy].
BUT it’s mine, and for at least a little while I think I can stand to be seen in them.
I’m going to have to do some reading to see how people actually make decent clothes. I have a few [discouraging] clues [you add prim items onto the clothing].
Still, the sim is coming along nice, and I’m adding homey little quirky touches [like the sword in the stone I put in the middle of my ‘forest’].
Slowly, but surely I’m making a home of my own in osgrid.
