Two other events have opened up this past week or within the past few days. Indie Teepee and the Liaison Collaborative. Both of them have dreamy sorta themes going on… catch that? The play on words? Yea, I went there.
It’s early… ish, on a Sunday, I can’t be held accountable.
Both of these item sets are something that I really enjoyed creating for very different reasons.
First highlighting Indie Teepee, the music and arts festival I decided to make up a harp. I used to have one in my store quite awhile ago that I really adored and have always thought I’d like to have another version someday. With the theme I found a way to make that a reality. The Midshimmer Harp set really did turn out better than I had hoped. It has a soft feel to it with a fantasy flair, at least that’s what I think. It comes in three different wood tones, a light, medium then darker tone. I couldn’t decide which one I liked best so you can choose which suits your decor the most.
I added things…. made a scene sort of…. so each set is sold separately, apologies for that but you’ll see why when I get going. There are three harps in each package so you are totally covered in however you might want to use it. A playable version that has 10 songs, and 5 animations. The animations include playing the harp, and sits for male or female avatars. The stool rezzes/de-rezzes as needed so it doesn’t necessarily take up extra space while not in use or any kind of clutter. There is also a “jukebox” version of the harp. This harp does NOT have any animations in it BUT it has the 10 songs that can be played with a click so you can have music in the background even if no one is playing it. THEN I added an unscripted version of the harp just for decor purposes.
Since I’m something of a freak and like to think up things to do or go along with everything I also added a stool that is meant to be for spectators or people or just furniture you want to have out… the extra stool has 9 animations embedded in it for male & female avatars. Amongst them a listening to music where you tap your foot and play along.
Deco included is also some flower scatter for the ground, two versions… one all white and one that has a few colors to compliment the harps, as a bonus I threw in there a flying butterflies thing with particle fireflies to help make a magical, woodsy and fantastical setting. See…. a big set. I really do like them.
The second event and set for this post is at the Liaison Collaborative. The theme was Dreamweaver and from all accounts and the Pinterest board it was a Southwest sort of theme going in. Of course I could have gone at this in a few directions but I decided to sort of bring back a favorite of mine. AGES and ages ago when I was a wee one in SL terms within the first year or two of my store I had created a weaving loom with a decidedly Southwestern feel to it. Later I updated it a time or two when sculpts came around and now… with mesh, I’ve made my own from scratch… so to speak. It’s a long time favored thing, I have a love for this stuff… I used to watch my grandmother weave when I was young so most things related to that make me smile on some level.
I suppose it is only fitting at the name then. The Shimasani Weavers Loom set, Shimasani meaning Grandmother in Navajo is a vibrantly colored rather rustic looking loom. The loom itself has 6 animations in it. Kneeling weaving, and some sitting type of things. While making it I realized I wish I had made it a bit taller so I could add standing weaving to it but I suppose that will be something I could do later too. After the loom we round out the set with various balls of yarn, 3 and 4 of them in one object and different colors… a folded blanket that has already obviously been woven by work worn hands, a rug to kneel upon and then a basket of yarn to accent. The loom weighs in at 7 LI, a bit higher than I like but it’s worth it if you like this sort of thing and then each accessory piece is only 1 LI each. See, I make up for it.
Rich colors, from cool to warm tones make this really something that catches your eye. Available at the Liaison Collaborative this month.
So there it is… my second post of newness. I hope you enjoy.
