New Dana's Delights Bridal Collection

In yet another stunning AVENUE production- Wedding bells rang, white doves fluttered overhead, and the Sky runway wore a lovely shade of lilac while AVENUE models Livia Mastroianni, Ivyana Szondi, Nezsy Herstein, Laury Sands, Mavi Beck and Haruka Kish glided and swirled before the audience in a heavenly bridal collection inspired by the delights of a spring garden in bloom.

It comes with a full flexi skirt with train, veil with roses, and a straight flexi skirt for the reception.

Blue Lily Bridal GownBlue Lily Bridesmaid Dress

Shown above, Haruka is wearing the “Blue Lily” bridal gown- A bell shaped beauty like its namesake, it comes with a full four-part skirt with train attached, and a sheer veil.Laura is matching Haruka’s gown in the “Blue Lily” bridesmaid dress. It comes with multiple options for the skirt (puffy, below-knee or flexi) and optional puffy sleeves for lots of styling creativity.

These gowns are must-see-in-motion! And here’s some more icing on the cake: All gowns come as “transfer” items so you can give them as gifts!

Better start saving up for a new graphics card.

Shadows and flexible sculpted prims are coming to Second Life. You can already try both, but prepare yourself for even more lag! The two new features are now available in two different SL browsers. TWO? Unfortunately, yes. You can try the shadow on SL 1.23 Release Candidate (download RC here. There's a simple setup you need to configure using advanced menu).

  1. Enable the Advanced menu by hitting ctrl+alt+D (if you don't have it turned on).
  2. Go to Advanced > Debug Settings.
  3. Type in renderusefbo and set it to True
  4. Type in renderdeferred and set it to True
  5. Shadows!

The image is amazing! But, and there is always a but, immediately my AO started to work in slow-motion. I had another great deception when I tried to share my viewing with all my friends. The shadows didn't show in snapshots.

Conclusion: should you try it? Maybe not now, but remember this is a release candidate; that means the feature will be present in next SL version upgrade. I believe LL will fine tune it to work better in most graphics cards, and I hope they make it available in pictures too! Anyway, it will impact your computer performance so you should start to think about an update in the near future.

Flexible sculpted prims. One of the most anticipated upgrades in SL. This feature will certainly change a lot in the way we build. Those who were around for the sculpties revolution know the impact that I'm talking about. Imagine a skirt, that looks like a skirt, not cones or half cylinders grouped, and moves like a skirt. Or an avatar's tail that has an organic move. Now stop dreaming and test CoolViewer. CoolViewer is a 3rd party SL viewer that has many advantages of SL normal viewer - but this article is not about CoolViewer. The most famous and appreciated by the fashion community is the Worn tab. The technology is available there. You just need to find the flexi sculptures to see how they work.

The impact in your computer performance will be lower than in the shadows' case, but there will be lag.

Conclusion: should you try it? Not really, you can just watch the demo videos:

and wait for the official release. But if you are part of the fashion industry, in my opinion, you can't wait. It's time to test it and try to learn how to make your sculpties flexible. You don't want to be the last creator to have them available in your collection, do you?

Towards SL Democracy


This Saturday, the 9th of May, the SL Democratic Movement (slDM) will throw a big party and you are invited. The slDM is a group of residents campaigning to further and enable User rights and User governance (self-rule) in the Second Life world and this party is partly in light of the recently announced changes in Adult Content policy (for more info about slDM check our website and the FAQ/goals document: ).

But of course this party is mostly to have fun, relax, dance and listen to some great music by some awesome artists. As Emma Goldman has said: “If I can't dance - I don't want to be part of your revolution".

The party will be a live music event with some great artists; the line-up for this week will be live musicians Artel Brando and Lexie Luan, who both play guitar and sing. Artel will take the stage at 10 am SLT, after which Lexie will play her set at 11 am ending at 12 pm SLT. Aeris Betsen will DJ after 12 pm and drop some fine tunes for us who cannot stop dancing.

This party promises to be a great time, so come over to check out these great artists, listen to good music while plotting the revolution towards full user emancipation!

Saturday 9 May from 10 am - 12pm SLT

10 am - 11am Artel Brando
11 am - 12 pm Lexie Luan
