Ever since my computer died and ate my hard drive, I’ve been feeling like the creative wind was taken right out of my sails. So yesterday, when Botgirl Questi posted some creative inspirations on Twitter, I finally pulled it together enough to start a new design. I know, about time, right?
I’ve been working on a new little dress that I would like to finish before Valentine’s day, and while I’ve got the textures mostly completed, I’m having a bear of a time getting the skirt to link up. In short, it’s not. I gave up last night and now all day I’ve been sneaking back in to try to link, to no avail. Perhaps I’m trying to hard and need to let go and let Muse take over. Perhaps I should have made it in black and grey as an “Anti-Valentine’s” dress, which seems to be popular these days. Maybe I still will. Or maybe I need to just scrap it and start over.
For some reason, whenever I try to stand on a pose stand while in “busy” mode, my viewer takes me on an imaginary field trip to the far corner of the sim, under water, with my ankles up around my ears, surrounded by all kinds of other forgotten sim junk that seems magnetized to go to this very spot.
Makes it very hard to build anything, but the trick to get back out (even though you’re not really there) is to try to click yourself into appearance mode and then back out. Then *poof* your viewer should snap you back to where your av really is. At least, usually. Sometimes it then shoots you off somwhere into space with a nice ocean view, and pretzel legs. *Sigh* Well, at least I’m getting a good stretch!
So, the dress, let’s just call it “Muse”, is coming along and may or may not end up looking like a lampshade, though you could wear it that way I suppose, on your head, if you want. I suppose I could make it touch on/off for light. Muses.
