MayCreations Revisited

Using a bike I won @ R.P.B.B's MM Board the other day for this shot. Have a nice weekend, everybody!

The Basis Of Each War Is A Lie!

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defence with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.” 
from: US President Dwight D. Eisenhower's Farewell Address, January 17th,1961 

I can only hope that the democratically elected representatives in France and in the USA take their job of controlling and restraining their countries' executive as seriously as the British and won't allow their leaders to rush them into another needless and unwarranted military adventure without UN mandate. 

Bombs and missiles won't solve the current crisis but have all the potential to set the whole Middle East aflame and worse. It's for the UN Security Council to decide what course to take and no one else. 

The Eclipse Incident: Day Clan

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: But it was the time for Day Clan the rule. The two sides readied their weapons. Day accused Night of using black magic to swallow the sun. Night called Day liars using tricky to incite a war. The situation seemed hopeless. There cannot be both Day and Night at the same time. "Look!" a small child pointed to the sky. The sun was reemerging. The Day Clan called off the war. The Night Clan warned they would back, and in greater numbers, next time Day made false allegations.

In the background is a cool house by Aisling that is only 35 land impact. YES! A mesh house that has lovely textures, has doors, collisions, security, no phantoms and only 35 LI! It's all mesh, and that means you can scale it up for titan size, or scale it down for petities.  Pretty cool. The trees are a group gift from Isovii that comes with a menu to change leaf color. Both poses, and the set are by Chanimations. The kit has 3 poses in all. I am wearing a cool Goblin mask by Kahli Designs that was in the fantasy gothca. My jacket is by The Library and called Mr Darcy. The one on sale is red. The Boots are from the cheapies section of WLRP and the style works so good for many types of role play. The Belt is a single obj you can scale to fit your shape. The gloves are by Fatewear and have been updated to include materials. If you own Dextor gloves, just get the update for free and you will have the new leather materials too. The Firey shaped horns are by Rue and on sale at WLRP. How many of you guys went thorugh a lot of Ls at the Tableau Vivant sale? I know I did. This one of the textures I got for 400L. Tableau Vivant and Glam Affair will both be down for 2 weeks as they remodel. The outfit on Faun is fantastic. It's by the Muses and includes all armor shown, and boots. There is a red and black version on sale too. The auburn dreads are a dollarbie at Discord Designs. The natural white version you can find in the marketplace here. The stag horns are by Aisling and were another sweet item at Fantasy Gacha. Her skin is a fun one, a rough-n-tumble girl, like a boxer, who has stiches under one eye, burised other eye, and a busted up lip. The skin comes in 2 tones and has appliers for Tango and Lush.

Gizza recently put out their 3rd Anniversary Group Gift. There is a tuxedo for the guys and a gown for the girls. Since I was all dressed up I decided to explore the Venexia sim. It’s a vampire roleplay sim but it looks just like Venice. I even went for a joyride in a gondola.

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: As it has always been, the Night Clan stirs when darkness falls over the land. 

If you haven't already picked up the deals at We <3 Role Play, hurry. The August round ends on the 31st. I'm wearing an outfit by Kahli Desgins that can be worn on girls, guys, and even males on female base. The mesh attachements can be edited for a good fit. The outfit includes a lionhead shield and sword. Check out these fun mesh demon hands by Death Row. They are not rigged and have a X,Y,Z resize script. It includes a black glove layer to help blend the demon hand into your skin. Two items shown above I got at the Fantasy Gacha, the pink dragon shoulder pet by Candy Crunchers, and the horns I have on by Aisling. The Candy Horns our lovely Moon Maiden is wearing are from the cheapie section on We <3 Role Play and come in several colors. The gown is from Fateplay and can be worn without or without sleeves. There is a very nice lacing detail on the back of the gown. Both Night Clanners are wearing Fallen Gods skins currently on sale at WLRP. Both come in male and female versions. The poses and the summoning circle are from set kit by Chanimations that includes 5 poses, and a particle special effect for each hand in several colors. For the purpose of image, I made my own FX in postproduction.

Tokyo 3.1: Guardians Sakura and Momiji

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Given enough time diverse things merge and combine. This was true too in Tokyo 2085. While huge chunks of the city had joined the global cyber collective, some parts of Tokyo were ageless. One small section close to the water even had real living sakura trees. This was her favorite place. Guardian Sakura defended it ferociously. Somethings were worth dying for.

Originally I had the idea of doing a tough-as-nails woman warrior, but my idea took a turn toward a combination of hard and soft, past and future, east and west, after I won the watermelon colored falls. lol. The Rebellious armor outfit by Dark Prophet Designs is a wonderfully crafted mesh with pieces that can be added or subtracted. Included is a hood with 2 styles of tattoo to shade the face and make you look mysterious. Nice touch! It's on sale 25% off at We Love Role Play until August 31st. The soft elements are by Barerose. The Otoko Ohka package also includes hair, kimono and shoes. The Codie falls by Discord Designs is available in gacha at the 24 Event until August 31st. This beautiful skin by Koola is a current group gift. I love the eyeliner and freckles. The Amidala makeup by Avea adds a nice geisha touch. The dewy Jaded eyes by Poetic Colors match the green falls end nicely. For the pose, I used both katanas in the Fantasy Ninja pose by F*ckingNinjas. Picture is taken at the new sim by :Sey, Tokyo 3.1.

On Her, Guardian Sakura:
Armor, outfit, boots, tattoo: Dark Prophet Designs Rebellious female [mesh] (1200L) 25% off
Hair: Discord Designs Codie Watermelon RARE, gacha (The 24 Event) [mesh] (30L)
Sash, chocker, train, sword effect: Barerose Otoko Ohka [mesh] (edit color tint)(185L)
Makeup: Aeva Heartsick Amidala Make Up (75L)
Skin: KOOQLA Okania Rion/01 (group gift,10L to join) (free)
Eyes: Poetic Colors Jaded Eyes - Spring [mesh] (150L)
Katana, Pose: F*ckingNinjas *FN* Fantasy ninja pose (50L)

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: "Tree Hugger!" He was five years old when he saw a rock thrown at his older sister by a bitter wheelchair-bound man. He was horrified when blood trickled down her face. He immediately charged at the nasty coot, but Sakura blocked him. "The person who is hurting here is not me." She pointed to the man's legs. There was a severe infection where his cybernetic limbs met his upper thigh. "Rejection," she whispered. He swore he would never accept implants after that day. But not all of his childhood memories were bad. He got to see the Walled Forest before it was destroyed. Remembering the beauty of leaves turned to amber, orange and red was all the motive he needed to follow into his sister's footsteps. Poachers and vandals would soon be overwhelmed by the fury of Guardian Momiji.

Continuing in the Tokyo 3.1 series, this one shows the new clothing for guys from Fatewear with leather materials. The pants are Brad, and the Jacket is Logan with an open or closed jacket. You can wear the included shirt under the open jacket, or go without. I showed you guys the Materials katana from Barerose that is in the Marketplace. This purple version you can get for free in the freebies section of Barerose. The samurai elements come from the Barerose outfit Komaoh Maru which also includes mesh chest armor and pants. I am wearing Kooqla's River Silver. The Tangerine version is currently a free group gift, it cost only 10L to join. I recommend joining and stay joined. The boots are rigged cyber badness by Mono:Krome. Love. These skins are awesome.   The hair is cool purple color with a top braid by Discord Designs. In this makeup by ni.Ju, I'm looking like the Visual Kei twin from the Kaulitz clan. (Well, when not making a frowny face anyway. lol) It's freebie at RMK Gothic.

On Him, Momiji:
Jacket, Shirt: Fatewear Logan - Volcano with leather materials (edit tinted) [mesh] (300L)

A First Look @ Mesh Clothes With The SL Materials Viewer

With the new [ hoorenbeek ] Mesh Leather Pants just released and on sale this weekend I bought the black ones to check them out. For the first time [ hoorenbeek ] not only includes multiple wear options with a product but also gives you 3 different “light versions”, one which is especially made for the new Second Life Materials Viewer, so I installed the version on my PC.

The first “light version” that [ hoorenbeek ] calls “static lights” (left picture) is what we are used to: the reflections and shadows are “built” into the texture. Then there's a “mixed lights” version included in the package which I don't show. Finally, we have the “dynamic lights” version which works only with one of the new materials viewers. Its texture is a highly detailed surface on which the respective windlight casts its lights and shadows for a more realistic look. (Hope this explanation is technically correct, lol.)
