Dirty here, this post is for a challenge set by Alysha Rennahan, on Plurk, to make alook using things over a year old. Now Filthy and Dirty aren't yet a year old, but we have alter-egos that are: Danana and Tiara.

Firstly, Filthy writes about Danana's outfit:
Truth hair; Naomi Chocolate. In my Danana days I was always an Armidi hair fan but this hair from Truth Hawks just looked like me. Comparing it to new hair there may be more clever designs , but this has character still love it, i don't remember what i paid but i think it was inexpensive she should rent it by the day she'd be a millionaire.
The earrings (worn but hardly seen here unfortunately-D) were a present ~Muse~ Celestine Snowflake Earrings. I wear them to remember when I was new and I was an Ice Witch. People Can be so helpfull when ur new to sl, is the reason i came back, thanks Ran.
The necklace is special 2 Rhap made it u know what she is, she's a mate, she showed the me prog I make my shoes with. She makes the Unbelievable Minerva skins. If u ever tried to make a skin you'll know just how good she is. What's scary is her Daughter; Chip who i dunno if she still comes to sl was the talented one>if they wanted they could own sl there's no trick to it ,is just talent..
The dress is Ce cubic i just always found it flattening it had sculps b4 I knew what they were and there not used for any other reason than to make it slinky love it still
The boots are Maitreya dunes, again i had them for years Onyx is an inspirational sculptor the texturing on these is beautiful. the foot shape id change but we all learn, look at her gold range she's cutting edge she's the Beatles.
The Skin is Runway Sakura Porcelain Sin Skin: Ton Visage. Delphi took me shopping she knew the difference when i was still 'ooh blinggg' It's dated but those lips r still sexy.
Filthy Adored

Tiara is wearing a dress by P.C (paper couture?) that I found at Tableau and fell in love with, it was bought for a special occasion I don't remember now but remember the dress and that it was liked and that the main reason I like it, because they did. Tiara's hair is armidi and was probably the first 'normal' hair I bought. Tiara was very goth/metal/neko/wtf, then changed with age. Its still a fab style and goes with most things and more importantly doesn't get in the way of collars and stuff. The tights are from Sn@tch, one of my favorite shops ever, always will be even if it's not 'Me' atm. Shoes are Maitreya Verve pumps in plum and I just love them, always have, since the second I saw them. Skin is (FD) tiny words in morning sun. I love Toast Bard skins, so pretty and hand drawn and make any outfit. So classy too. My eyes are Taranis black by Fallen gods, first ones i ever bought and I still wear them alot. The scarf is Miel, great shop, great sculpts. I like scarves is all, rl/sl and have a ton, this one gets worn alooot.

Sl bashing and the heart I found

Imma annoyed i was in facebook, n there talking about Philip Linden, hes opened a comp for people to update his avatar.The reply's turned into a sl bashing opportunity.I love SL its not perfect but show me something that is.SL, there's good theres bad theres well just plain nasty is hugely diverse. Is my home. when people cun* it off it upsets me. it could be better but it could be worse. if u dont like it dont come, if u can do it better noones stopping u the viewer is open source, impress me

Second life is relentless, ever changing based on fads and whims. Today its Elf ears tomorrow its inflatable knee pads, I'm not complaining creativity is the fire that feeds the Metaverse. I been here a while landed in 06 and I read that Second life has around thirty thousand people in world all the time if that's even half true that's fifteen thousand if half of them are bots that's still say seven thousand, alotta souls indeed. I can't claim to have met them all. The world is like ancient Rome continually being burned down then recreated in its own image. It's hard to hold onto friends in here time flies by like dog years .I never found a soul mate that I connected with so deeply on Monday to have burnt to ash by Friday. And where do I go when it all falls apart? Do I take the long walk to RL, utter the words I'm leavin enough of this shit.
I have, you have or you will.
I have been a camper a dancer a gambler , a manager a club owner, a shop owner. In my sl there is only one fixed point, it can be hard to go sometimes hell even, it can be boring it can be funny it can be nasty. I could take it apart try to explain how it works I have tried. It's like family I suppose so not an easy relationship. It's both anonymous and intimate. Some people have gone there for years but it always seems to be new faces.
one day I know ill wake up and Keith Richards will be dead and the world will go on but it won't be the same
be the same with Alt7

Dont u hate it when...

I went and asked the great Siddean of Slink for an opinion on my latest boots. She makes some of the best shoes in sl. I know she uses the same software as me so thought she would be the person to ask. Sure shes very busy rebuilding her shop.but i thought id take a chance.
Don't u hate it when these people turn out to be friendly helpful offer constructive comment and even teach u some new things, what kind of world are we living in here this served as a stark reminder that this is second life not real life.
Thanks Siddean ur a star


New low lag boots part 1

ok rant time

script lag. Did u ever struggle to tp or cross a sim crossing. If u did the chances are this is cause by script lag. if ur in a v2 viewer go to world place profile about land-region memory-my avatar tab.

In that list ull see the memory size in kb of every scripty item your wearing in our invisi prim version of the bootu should see it as 192kb per foot this is higher than i would like but the rezize script can be deleted this will lower the cost but not remove it as the invisiprims not required in v2 have to stay. if we compare this to a well known sl top brand the un named boot has a memory size of 7936 per foot 41 times higer

this on its own is fine but when u go to a club and everones shaking there glamerous booties dont be supprised when the sim grinds to a halt

think of sim memory as ozone some items in sl make holes in it these are shoes and hair mostly

yes the lindens could make the sims run more memory but thats like adding extra cupboards to ur bedroom u will fill em with rubbish in a day. Hopfully building smart we can improve everones sl experiance

rant over

MaryJanes in store now

These have just landed in the store

There sculpted around the bare size 0 secondlife foot and fit perfectly with no base or invisi prims required.

The basic sl foot is an ugleah lil spug so i challenged myself to make something pretty to flatter it. Iv seen lots flats in sl that gape around the back and sides look like a kid in ur mommas shoes

if u look closely on them u can see i tooled the leather embossing it with stars and the lil bb logo.
This makes em distinctive pretty and hard to steal thats a 3 fer and for only $L 150 a bit of a steal in themselves. drop in there's a demo to try..

New skirt and leggings set out!

See here, a new skirt and leggings, aren't they marvellous.
I very much enjoyed making them, and have lived in them ever since they uploaded. The skirt is a sculpty and the rest comes on all layers, every single one possible and for the incredibley reasonable price of 300l for 2 skirts + 2 leggings, the leggings and skirts are available seperately too.
Wearable, gothy, pretty, floofy, all the things a good petaly shaped skirt should be, paired with the punky leggs looks faaaaab!
