Marrow

Standard

I’m starting to really love crazy, quirky stuff, maybe because you can totally get away with doing it in Second Life. That’s one thing I’ve always enjoyed, the ability to do things that you otherwise wouldn’t be able to (or would look really stupid) in the real world. SL is like a testing ground, and it’s really helped me find a style for my personal life, too!

Bibliophile

Standard

While there’s lots of events out there right now, I didn’t use a whole lot of new stuff for this look. Sometimes, the most fun you can have is going through your inventory and looking at all the stuff you already have. I mean, look at the textures of that beautiful chair, and all these wonderful books!

The latest round of Uber is fabulously opulent, and one of my favourite items available is a collaboration between Consignment and floorplan. Girly and glamorous, these gilded beds have fabulous metal detail; I could seriously look at it all day!

DeWaere

Standard

I think I say this every time Llorisen releases something new, but this is my favourite build yet! New for FaMESHed, the DeWaere converted warehouse is a beautiful loft style build that can be used as your home, or even as your store.

DeWaere

This open concept structure has up to four designated spaces, one being a spacious loft, which is probably my favourite part about the whole build. I love the high ceilings with the metal rafters and sporadically opened sky lights, which allow for some neat lightly opportunities!

One of the super neat features is that you don’t need to click on the doors to open them. You simply walk up to them, and poof, they open on their own! They also stay open while you stand close to them, allowing for easier camera movement and a little more realism.

DeWaere

All in all, I deleted my previous home (which also happened to be another Llorisen build) and dropped this beautiful structure in its place. I highly super duper recommended you get this build, or even just go see it. It’s totally worth it!

Cookie Critters

Standard

Today is quite literally your last day to get your hands on those Arcade treats, and I don’t just mean the ones in the machines! There’s more than two dozen gifts under the massive tree in the center of the venue, all up for grabs until midnight.
