Dell’Amore

Minor rant.

I absolutely detest and loathe sculpties…actually no, that’s not fairly accurate. I detest and loathe making sculpties. I absolutely suck, and I repeat, suck at it. I’ve tried Maya but we don’t get along. The only thing I could ever make useful out of it are the kind of freebie sculpties you see lying around. Anything complicated than a slightly modified sphere usually ends up in a disaster.

So yeah…a week worth of prim work went down the toilet just recently, so that forced me to do everything via texturing.

Frankly I’m not too happy with the result. I’m not used to having extremely soft flexi prims on skirts, as they tend to go everywhere when you walk. It makes scripted skirts look absolutely useless.

That being said, onwards to updates!

Dell’Amore was admittedly inspired by another of Granado Espada’s gowns in an albeit more simplified version. I think I’ve mentioned it before that yes, I’m a big big fan of the MMO’s graphics and music. Don’t ask me about game play. I stopped playing for a reason.

The outfit originally had sculpty skirts in it, but as you can tell it never pushed through. (¬_¬) And no, I’m not really all to happy about it. Still it was fun making this outfit–I particularly had fun with the feathers–so it wasn’t a total loss.

The outfit contains the following: Blouse, Glitchpants, Prim flexi skirt (scripted & non-scripted), sculpted prim sleeves, feathered collar and a matching feathered fan.

You can choose from six (6) choices: Crimson, Emerald, Midnight, Purple, Royal Blue & Tangerine.

The outfit costs L$600 and is at copy/modify/no transfer.

As usual, gift items/transferable versions will only be available in SLExchange.

I also added a Collar and Fan fat pack that can be sold separately. As I mentioned earlier I did make a ton of feathers and went ahead and had a ball. The box contains twelve (12) color alterations of those feathered collars and feathered fans. The fatpack cost L$300 and is also at copy/modify/no transfer.

As a bonus, I’ll be sending out a Teal version of Dell’Amore to group members for roughly a month or until notices expire. So for SRD members, please watch out for that notice.

On another note, I’m having problems with my groups. For reasons unknown, my notices seem to “expire” in less than thirty days and I’m not sure why… Anyone with any idea how to fix this for me, give me an IM.

Now on that jewelry update I promised last month…

My jewelry maker, Alienbear, is doing a RL house/apartment move so she can’t do any of the jewelry as of yet. Right now I’m just wishing her luck that things go well on her end. (^_^) Which leads me to another topic…

My main store will be moving very, very soon. And I’m in need of Mainland property roughly at 16,384sqm which is equivalent of 3k prims worth (because I can’t afford voids, or an actual sim–I’m poor). Now I understand that void sims are nice but I would prefer property that would allow me to pay tier directly to Linden Labs. And no, I’m not interested in rentals which includes “buying” a plot with “land rights”. To me that’s not buying, that’s “renting”. The fact that I’m beholden directly to a “land lord” who isn’t an employee of LL makes it a rental.

So if there are any kind souls out there who wish to help me out, please drop me a notecard. I’d appreciate the help.

  1. I wanted to thank you so much for the update group gift, its a really pretty gown. 🙂

    I think, though, that the script may be in the version that says non-scripted too, because when I put that one on it seems to be stuck in a ‘seated’ position, not hanging down properly. Not sure if that affects all copies or if it was just an sl glitch, though.

    Regarding the group, the timeout for notices was changed to just 14 days some time ago by LL. So its the new standard, unfortunately.

    FYI:

    LL changed the length of group notices from 30 days to 15 days or less, depending on the number of notices sent per day.

    So relax, you’re not going crazy, and nothing is wrong with your groups.

    Gah! One more thing…you can not buy a “void” sim and pay tier to LL unless you already own a sim.

    Anyone who tells you they did, bought the void from someone else who sold it to them at a higher price. And void sims are 3750 prims and lag to hell and back because they run 4 to a server.

  4. @Freyja Nemeth : Yes, if that happens, just walk? It should right itself right up. 🙂

    @Sunshine Kukulcan : Thanks for the tip. I originally intended to get a void sim but yes, it still isn’t technically mine that and I’m afraid of lagging my store to hell and back. I want to help my customer’s shopping to be better, not worse. (^^);
