My Hair

Well, I did it. I made hair. It’s not the world’s best hair, but it’s not totally horrible either. πŸ™‚ As a matter of fact, I plan to ship it over to OpenSim. I learned a LOT in the last 72 hours. I know how to use Gimp. I learned about taking photos. I learned more about building. I appreciated yet again how hard it is to make hair. But. I did it. And I will continue to work on this. The color is not what I want. I know how to fix that. I need to learn a lot more about layering the prims. About rotating prims. But considering everything…. I’m feeling fairly satisfied with this iteration.


I actually have 4 versions at this point. The first – I misunderstood about the top of the hair. So in essence I have a cap that has hair coming out of it. *grin*. The other versions are all variations on this one. The second version was this hair without the fringe-y bangs and headband. The third version has bangs. And this is the 4th. Also known as Round6 in my inventory. *grin* That’s because the first 2 “rounds” weren’t complete – merely building blocks. Now I must turn back to scripting. I am way behind on my scripting work and I have a deadline coming very quickly. But I admit it – doing this was fun. Frustrating, maddening, but ultimately fun, satisfying and educational.

There's not much to say about me. I discovered SecondLife by accident, wandered in, and decided I wanted to stay. This blog was a chronicle of my adventures and misadventures in SL. It also includes stray thoughts that occur to me as a result of my time in SL. Both I and my avatar are female. We both love water and the beach and gardening and parties and hanging out with friends. Updating this after quite some time. I haven't appeared in SL in many many months (probably over a year by now) but SL has remained in my thoughts. I do miss my SL, but at least I still have contact with some of my friends from there. In the meantime.... this blog has evolved to be about my RL adventures. :) Nowhere near as risque as my SL but I do keep busy. I still like all the things listed above. I didn't have any cats in SL (only ducks and a panda) so my cats feel that they should play starring roles in my posts. :) I didn't do much eating IN SL although certainly food and drink accompanied me in RL while I roamed inworld. Cooking and baking have become more fun and interesting once I redid my kitchen. That renovation took longer and cost more than if I'd done it virtually, but I'm thrilled to have a tangible new kitchen! I hope you like food and drink as well! Thanks for reading!

  1. That is great! I have to say…I am so proud of you and the efforts you have gone through since coming into SL. Your thirst for learning is amazing and I have watched you grow and grow in knowledge. I even took some time to go back throught some of your posts and you can see how much you have learned and enhanced your virtual life. Yea!! Keep up the learning and great blog posts. You inspire me!

    Your Friend,

  2. Wow, that is amazing! Now stop it or you’re going to get me wanting to try it. And I *know* making hair would take me about ten times as long as it did you. πŸ™‚

    You are cool.

  3. You are all exceedingly kind and generous. I don’t think that the professional SL hair designers need to worry, but I did learn a lot and enjoyed the process. I will definitely keep working at this. Your support and encouragement is appreciated greatly.
