I read about a website about resolutions led by Rev. Chaz Howard, a chaplain at the University of Pennsylvania, which aims to lead “a public campaign to challenge people to make outwardly-focused resolutions to care for others, instead of inwardly-focused resolutions for self-improvement.” At Resolution ‘12, you can publicly state your resolution. Consider it your mission statement for 2012—what are you gonna do?
Of course, one resolution I don’t need to worry about is continuing to look good in 2012—the great creators in SL make it easy for me. Consider this dress from Barbra Kungler, a beautifully patterned mini with gorgeous colors and a decidedly different approach to the short dress. With its square collar and long sleeves, this could almost double as a tunic, but I couldn’t resist tying it at the waist with a pretty belt from caran Juran showing some leg finished with sexy mesh shoes from Siddean Munro.
A resolution I could adopt is using mesh a little more, which is made easier by the improved mesh-enabled viewers and the new things folks are doing with mesh. Take, for example, this simple necklace from Maxi Gossamer. Maxi, who has just opened her shop on Marketplace, is using mesh in a way that bypasses all the aggravations of rigged mesh—she is building jewelry in mesh. What does this mean for you? Maxi can show complex shapes without all the rendering issues inherent with prims or sculpties (the so-called abhorent “ARC”). She can integrate interesting textures right on to the shapes. I look forward to seeing more of her work in the future.
I wear a skin from moon meiyo with delicious make-up coloring and a lovely face, including nicely shaped brows and full luscious lips. My hair is one of Kavar Cleanslate’s newest offerings in his delicious new textures. I love how he has clipped the hair at the eye with strands sweeping away from the face. And I admit I am kind of stuck on this particular shade with its streaks and depth.
“Take the time to discern your resolution. Don’t rush to post something because it’s the first thing that comes to mind. Make a resolution that is not too big – and doable. What is the little imprint you can make on the world?”
