Teach Me Something Meme

Still living in the world without shadows, I thought I will make myself useful by sharing a trick that you may not know.  This is for one of the Meme challenges run by Strawberry Singh.  I called mine a trick and not talent because it really doesn’t require special skills to do this.

If you haven’t been following my Meme posts, you can read the rest of them and find out more here!

Also, accompanying this post, I did a styling too.  Just in case you already knew the trick I am going to share, at least you will still learn something new (releases in fashion) from my post. 😛

Split Skirt + BSD + Emery + 7DS_006 1048

How often, when you are out and about on the grids, do you check what others are wearing and wonder where you can find that cool pair of boots or belt or hat? Or thinking who made that lovely hair or set of jewelries this model on the runway is using?

….but you are too shy to ask a stranger for the landmark…and when you finally summoned up the courage to open an IM, you realized there is language barrier that you are stuck in the IM trying to figure out how to explain what you want.

What can you do to find out where the items are from without having to go through those embarrassing moments?

There is an “Inspect” feature that you could use to check the non rigged objects someone is wearing, and from there you could find out who the creators are for those items which most time will help you trace and find the landmarks to their stores.

Here are some pictorial guides that show you how to inspect an object someone is wearing.  Do note that guides are based on Firestorm viewer V4.4.03.

I strongly suggest that before you start inspecting someone, turn off your “Lookat Target Hints” (Preferences -> Privacy -> Lookat) and Particle Beams (Preferences -> Firestorm -> Uncheck Selection Beams)  so when you are inspecting an object someone’s wearing, you do it without interrupting them.  Also, for this to work, you need to make sure the avatar is on the same sim as you.

To inspect a non-rigged object someone is wearing……

Firstly, right click on the object you would like to inspect, in this case I am going to inspect the black shoes this avatar is wearing….

shoes 1

A pie menu will appear, click on “More”…

shoes 2

Another pie menu will open and this time click on “Inspect”…

shoes 3

Now, a table will appear like the one shown in the picture below.   On the bottom of the table, you will find two options to either see the owner or the creator’s profile.  Click on “See Creator’s Profile…”.

shoes 4

…..and tada! You will see the creator’s profile, where very likely you will be able to find the landmark to the store under the Picks and/or Classified.

shoes 5

Bear in mind, this trick only applies to non-rigged objects. 🙂  It’s not a perfect solution but it helped me find 90% of the items I inspected. 😛

There will be times you might end up seeing something that you suspect is a copybotted item.  If unsure, I suggest that instead of teleporting from the landmark you found on the creator’s profile, do a search of the store under “Places” and teleport to the original store from there.

I hope you will find the “Inspect” feature useful.  Let me know what you think! 🙂

Have a nice weekend everyone! ❤

Mid Week Stylings

Firstly, I have to apologize for not able to keep up with my blogging for the last two days.  RL has gotten busy for the summer and I just don’t have time to process the pictures I have taken.  Having said that, I have managed to complete a couple today, so consider this a mid week styling treats if you would like.  All hairs used are from the Hair Fair 2012.  (Yes, I’m still not done with half of what I have.  Can’t promise I will have a comprehensive gallery like Leah‘s, but I will blog as many as I can until the fair ends on the 29th.)

So today it is not going to be a typical “hair fair trouble” post for me because I just feel a need to style . 😛

Remember to click the pictures for larger views.

Style 1 is inspired by the Chantkare Linen Beach Gown.  I missed the Couturier Dock’s version in beige colour so I have gone for blue instead, which surprisingly works wonderful for a summer styling day.  I love the linen details on this dress and the gathers at the bottom of the dress, it is simple but elegant, just the way I like my clothes to be. 🙂

The hat and hair I have on is from MONS, wonderful free gift at the Hair Fair.

Style 2 is inspired by .SHI latest release, the Lacet Motif.  I remember I have this sheer bodysuit from House of Fox and the Ombre Skirt from glow and when put them together it is actually a very graceful and chic result.  My cute hairdo is from Eliktira and my makeup is an accident.  Just the way I would dress for a RL party. 😛

Style 3 is inspired by the Discord Designs Delrey Hair, and I tried to create a style that mix hardcore with gentle soft, hence the candy colour Nana suit from Glam.  I’m not sure if it makes sense but hey! fashion and trends are suppose to be unexpected, and full of surprises. 😛

Oh! Check out my accessories from Amorous.  They are what I have got with the giftcard prize I won from the “On This Side of The PurpleMoon” contest.  Another cool brand, another styling options.  Mid week is good eh?
