So, yeah, I once again have a clothes shop in-world. It’s in Port Babbage, by the docks. Steampunky stuff and some Petites stuff that more or less fits the general theme. People don’t shop so much in-world anymore I suppose, but it’s nice to have a base of operations and all that. Please to drop by, so far nothing is over 200L and some of it is quite pretty I think.

Yes, I am aware that my hands are Abnormally Large, no it is not a Demo Shape or even copybotted as someone once assumed in a club. I don’t know what the “correct” hand size is but most of our hands are almost certainly too small, especially if your arms only reach to your waist. Which is a fine look but not as realistic as size-bitches seem to think. Size-bitches are the people who are A Realistic Height and go on about how you’re Freakishly Tall and that’s why they don’t even reach your boobs. Again fine but I don’t know why people are so bitchy about height in SL. I try not to be unless the subject is raised.
Unnamed Friend: “Lol Chav you’re so short.”
Me: “Actually you are 6’11”.”
Anyway I like my Huge Hands, they mean there is one feature where Chav isn’t exactly like everyone else. Hands are about all you can vastly change without needing to resize half your inventory. I really wanted a Huge Head but that involves resizing all your hairs and as we have established previously I have Far Too Many Hairs.
I would recommend Huge Hands to anyone wanting to explore the world of having large hands.
I’m not sure what this look is, but when you wear this Armidi hair with pretty much anything you end up looking like Posh Spice. Posh is pretty amazing, being the least talented but the most successful of the Spice Girls. I will never quite understand that. I suppose she got in a good stylist when it really mattered. (For the record my favourite is Ginger for being bolshy despite a chronic inability to sing particularly well.) So maybe it’s if Posh Spice was some sort of gothed-up punk.
As is the law, I must ask Whatever Happened To Armidi? Nobody seems to know, every Plurk I’ve seen on the issue is answered with vague promsies that they’re making stuff At Some Point. I don’t know when we get to declare it dead. I assume it’s in that state where the Sim is turned on as long as it’s profitable and after that it’ll go away forever. I will never understand why, since it was terribly successful in its day and they made nice stuff.
Also I have just noticed that I left in a bit of bluescreen ONOSE MY SEKRIT IS OUT.
Skin: Glam Affair (Dressing Room); Lipstick: A&A; Shoes: Shiny Things; Leggings: Ibizarre (closing sale?); Corset: Bare Rose; Earrings: LaGyo (Dressing Room); Hair: Armidi; T-Shirt & Tattoos own make (not for sale due to copyrights, IM me for a free copy if you really want them).

Nothing is more lulsy than an event where two people have put in the same template item. Well also sad, because it means they edged out someone who was making their own stuff, but you know what I mean re lulsy. I speak here of mesh templates, not bits n bobs like sleeve sculpts or a denim texture or whatever.
Good Things About Templates:
– Allow people who aren’t good at everything to be good at something. We can’t all manage mesh and people want to buy mesh so needs must. Some people are excellentcakes at texturing but can’t model or rig, so this is their chance.
Bad Things About Templates:
– When you buy something and then see an identical one for half the price in another shop. Dammit!
– Creates competition that wouldn’t be there otherwise for them that are making their own. Not really that bad unless we’re talking access to events or something, I suppose?
– Means the feeds are a bit more boring with all the idential items.
So basically idk. I’ve been tempted by the templates but I know it’s better for me to learn the Blender a bit more in case I want something nobody else has. There’s something quite demoralising as even a nobody content creator when, for instance, I see a top blogged that’s the template textured with the ready-made texture that comes with it. Where was the effort and love that went into that one, eh? I know people didn’t like the blog that showed who was using templates, but it was kind of interesting to see at some of the lower-prestige events how many shops were putting out stuff they’d bought off someone else.
I probably shouldn’t say anything, because I might get comments about how template clothes are the best thing ever. But it’s made me kind of wary of shops I don’t know when they turn out mesh, because I *think* I recognise the most common templates but I don’t want to end up with something that’s going to be everywhere for 5L if I just waited long enough.
As you can see, Chav has the big hands. They are size 100, because lols. But usually I notice that people in SL have tiny wee hands. What’s the proportionate setting for SL hands? How big are YOUR hands? Wouldn’t you like to have cool size 100 hands? Because you can, if you work hard in school and excercise daily.

Today Chav is dressed to match her magic trousers that I made and forced her to wear. Shirt is Mr Poet, skin be Curio, shoes from Shiny Things, hair is Lamb.

I did that thing again where I vanish for months at a time. Welp, it happens. I return with more knowings about mesh and Blender, and I am planning on making some wee clothes. But the sizes thing puts me off, cos it feels like a lot of effort for probably no reward. Maybe I can make everyone have Chav’s shape. Except for the hands, people don’t seem to like the hands. Size 100 hands is totally valid, you!
Anyway, shall try to blog again soon with pictures of stuff.
