The salmon crayon comes in the Standard 48 and up packs and is one of the older crayons having been added in 1949 !

When this color came up, I HAD to use it to show off my beloved Steelhead, as our mascot is the Steelhead Salmon! I asked Lunar for a short list of places on each sim that he feels shows off Steelhead to its best. He provided me with a list of builds that are based on Real world Buildings or places. I will happily pass out that note card to anyone that wants it! I am going to show off one photo from each location and if you want to see all the photos I took of the builds go to this handy link here

Steelhead is wanting new blood! So if you want to come live in a fantastic set of sims with one of the most amazing groups of people you will ever met, Come give us a visit! You will be welcomed with Open arms! we take all types no matter your fancy. We are an active group and work both to have fun in world but also have a presence at Relay for Life of Secondlife. Steelhead holds a weekly town meeting on Tuesdays and a weekly themed dance on Fridays. As well as many other events throughout the week.

Now onto the builds!

I knew EXACTLY who I wanted to wear when I saw it was Mushu. I had just discovered Lika Ruby last week for a Steelhead dance. This is not the outfit I wore to the dance, that ones pink. I went back to the store and found something that fit mushu quite well.

The hair is a bit of fun from Tukinowaguma..not something I’d wear often.

Two more weeks of this left. Wish it was longer! I could do these forever, its so much fun!

And I remember feeling, after those minutes, that Adar is my Carl.

So I wanted to get this one right.

I looked for the start of the movie online and could not find the whole thing, but I found this!

We where also supposed to do one of the mice, Gus Gus, but I did not want to dress one of the guys up as him and knew no one else who would. So I used a pose with a mouse in it, which you can’t see in the photo I just noticed..doh.

The Lapis Lazuli crayon was found in the 1994 specialty crayon box Gem Tones. As a stone Lapis is a fantastic shade of blue mottled with bits of calcite and pyrite. It has its most famous usage in Egyptian jewelry and statues so I wanted to go with an Egyptian theme for the shoot. Which meant that most of the shade is in the jewelry I have on and not the outfit itself.

Finding the sim took me FORREEVVERRR, I avoided the one I ended up with for a while as its description in the destination guide made it sound more like a random chat location rather then a beautifully done Rp sim. Then when I got there I found out it is not one but FOUR sims so, it took way longer then I thought to explore it. And I am sure I missed stuff.

OH LOOK! It’s on time..ish. I had to redo my Secondlife settings due to a certain kitten playing on my keyboard and changing things, THEN I screwed up and overwrote my settings file from Firestorm and had to fetch them from Adar’s computer. Oopsy.

Sunset Pearl is from the 1997 Pearl Brite set, and has a pearlesent sheen to it in crayon form.

I hate trying to find Yellows in my inventory, and this one was tricky. Not sure how well I matched it, but I did my best. I paired it with a fun pair of pants from the fabulous Taste the rainbow Hunt. You can do this hunt in an hour, Less even! But everything you get is fantastic!

The sim is another lovely temporary build by Cica Ghost. Like the Sketch sim and Rust it has many of her signature line art items. Quite a lovely place to explore for a while.

This post is so extremely late for the following reasons; I have been sick, the internet has been a brat, stupidly hiding from someone on SL, SL kept crashing as I need a new graphics card, and I have a minor distraction.

I am still not feeling fully well but better then I have been.

We’re getting a new DSL modem to replace our 8+ year old one and that should help our internet issues a TON. It should be here on Thursday according to the phone company.

I put on my big girl undies and will deal with the person when/if I see them again.

I have no idea when I will be able to afford a new card and some ram wouldn’t hurt either.

The distraction name is Batgirl, she’s 2 months old or abut that brown/black kitten. She showed up on our front porch two weeks ago wailing her little head off. Then when I opened the door to give her some food, waltz right inside like it was home and hasn’t left yet. She’s become buds with my now second youngest cat Isis. And has throughly claimed me as her own. You can see photos of the cutie kitty here. Right now she’s passed out asleep on top of my basket I take to ren faires. But one of her favorite spots is sleeping on my chest which make sit hard to do stuff on the computers. She also refuses to play with toys that are not ON my desk.

I really should have just taken a single photo and posted that a LOT earlier, but I wanted to do this sim darn it! So, you get it late. There was no Disney post this week so I am not behind on that.

ANYWAY

This weeks crayon got its name in 1990 as part of the florescent colors, though the color has been around since 1972 as Hot Magenta FLUORESCENT, all the Hot/Ultra ***** FLUORESCENT crayons got new names in 1990.

The sim and the outfit are tied together, even though the outfit is not QUITE the right culture as the sim. The sim is a second life recreation of the temples Borobudur and Prambanan, which are near Yogyakarta, Indonesia. I found the sim via the destination guide.. The build is extremely impressive. Secondlife advance in building prims have allowed a recreation that before would have been out of prim reach to be done beautifully.

The sim has two levels, one is the ruins and another is a modern town you get to via a teleport in the info booth near the landing point. I ALMOST missed it as I didn’t go to the info booth! You can see it and all the rest of my photos at this link

Rapunzel is my second favorite Disney Princess so it took me FOREVER to get the look I wanted for this week. Which is why I am just now posting it. I went through so many changes of mind on the outfit. And then I pulled up the cave house I had down to put down my tower as it was NEEDED for this look!

I finely settled on a skirt and top combo from Nomine, it gave the best look that said Rapunzel to me of everything I tried. Hair was a no brainer, something long, and I had the crown already. I did pick up the sun pendant and Pascal shoulder pet as well. And as I said I already had the tower, and the lanterns are always down on my plot!

Oh and for a change, because the shot was too gorgeous..here is a pulled back version taken on Adar’s computer..and trust me, you want to see it bigger!
