Bella’s Digits

I wasn’t sure if I was gonna do this, basically because I totally forgot to do the first one, but I did it anyway.  If you haven’t read Strawberry Singh’s “What’s Your Digits? – Take 2: The Mesh Revolution” post, I suggest you do.  She brings up a lot of great points about mesh and how it’s evolving and how SL’s designers and consumers are rising to meet the challenges.  Mesh technology is not yet perfect, but what is? It takes time for things to process and get the kinks worked out.  The ladies (and gents, too) who put together the Standard Sizing survey have done an outstanding job.  I’m in full support of them and their endeavors.  And I won’t lie, in the beginning I wasn’t sure about Standard Sizing.  I, too, questioned individuality in SL and how Standard Sizing could take that away, but I think you will all be able to see with everybody’s “digits” that we all continue to vary quite a bit.  We’ve managed to retain the individuality that everyone was so worried about.  Do we sometimes have to tweak our shapes? Yes. Do we look like completely different avatars if we move the slider a few points in one direction or another? Not from what I’ve seen.  All that said, mesh has definitely changed the face of SL and will continue to do so.  It’s only gonna get better with time. Hang in there folks!

“I’d rather be with your friends mate ’cause they are much fitter.”

[►] Well we’ve just got a ton of stuff to show you guys today.  We’re wearing items that can be found in this weekends La Venta Eventa, SBS, Stumblebum, Collabor88, Season’s Gatcha and some designers who will be appearing in the ZombiePopcorn 6 Hunt beginning Feb. 1st.  First of all, this adorable skybox is Honey, I’m Home’s contribution to the new round of Stumblebum beginning today.  It is adorable! The textures used throughout the build make it the perfect girlie hangout.  It also includes some frames with cute sayings to place on the walls.  The build itself is only 60 prims, which makes the deal even sweeter.

Who doesn’t love a necklace that looks good with a deep v-neck?  The skin Jenica is wearing can be found at Collabor88 for only 88L and her earrings are black victorian crosses available at bellballs (they were an SBS item, but may still be up, i didn’t check.)  You guys also need to keep in mind that the ZP Hunt will be rolling around in just 2 weeks and will include some of the designers in this post: -paper.doll-, je suis, GoK, Vaya Con Dios, MOOD, .ID., Izzie’s, LouLou&Co, Boom, TeaTime, Gawk, and NHA!, So, clearly that’s gonna be something you need to mark on your calendars! ♥
