Former California Girl Hit the SL Beaches

“I been all around this great big world
And I seen all kinds of girls
Yeah, but I couldn’t wait to get back in the states
Back to the cutest girls in the world
” © The Beach Boys

 

 

One of my favorite blogs has been using some lyrics and song names lately for their posts, and since I love Oldies and had the ocean on my mind, The Beach Boys seemed like a perfect way to follow in their footprints.  In the last round of pics from my pre-surgery beach photo shoots you’ll find them a little sexier than I usually go for.  First off, I was testing some new technology that hit the grid that totally tickled me that I discussed earlier – the water reactive tee.  Well, I also found the Sandra hair by Mina that was made in collaboration with Salt & Pepper, who did the tee, and decided to try them out.  It was during the tee shoot I learned about the clashing between applied clothing and the new wet technology, but I tried to keep it pretty modest, while showing off how brilliant the designer’s creativity is.  If I say so myself I think a couple could work in a pixel version of SI™.  *grin*  So, let’s show off this former Californian avi’s beach bod off!  (And if you follow me on Flickr, then hopefully you don’t mind the repeat viewing, since I’m finally getting things caught up and the timing is all sorts of wonky right now.  *laugh*)

 

So, I honestly just walked her right to the ocean floor and then came up to pose, to show off the reactive nature of the new Mina hair.  With time, or a handy little blow dryer packed with the hair, the hair dries into a beautiful style you can wear anytime.  **As of 6/24/18 Mina sent out an updated HUD so that you can manipulate the hair even more, such as keeping it wet, etc.**

I decided to wander in the waves for a bit, along the coast of one of the Destination Guide’s beaches, and tried out some poses I found in my inventory.  Whoa!  I think these would make Tyra Banks proud of my avi, even.  *laugh*

Now, the following are a little more daring than I would normally show on here, but after the glitching, I figured the distance, poses, and the medium dryness of the shirt would keep these acceptable.  I kept the pictures that show that the shirt goes to a really neat translucence with little spots of discoloration, as little places start to dry.  When I added the hair dryer for the Mina hair I discovered it also sped up the drying time on the shirt, so yet another multi use item.  Money well spent!  And although you can’t see in these shots unless you enlarge them, the hair and the shirt cause little water droplets to drip, too, while wet.

Seriously, I am always amazed at the creativity and ingenuity of people in SL.  This amazing mind is someone’s neighbor that they just give a head nod to if they happen to see one another, probably, yet in world they are so brilliant.  It it makes the world a little more interesting to think about the strangers behind these avatars that do such creative things and you might sit next to them tomorrow on the bus, wait in line behind them for coffee, or whatever.  It adds just a little more magic to life.  Hopefully you enjoyed my beach adventures and take a moment to appreciate the possibilities around you today.  That elbow that bumps you and the person that apologizes could be that of a wildly creative person!  They could be lost in ideas of how to add more magic to other lives.  That idea helps me be a little more patient and forgiving.  🙂
