[NV Designs] Fine Motors

So the other day I was surfing marketplace, and I saw an ad for a car. I tend to do some roleplay in urban family settings, either as a shop owner or what ever is available. So I saw this adorable little blue car (click here) upon seeing the vehicle, I was a little taken back by the price. Now being fooled before on previous vehicles on marketplace saying they use their own scripts, that they do not use ACS. Which is a bunch of baloney!

Upon future inspection and looking around, I found one of these vehicles on the sim I roleplay on! Pleasant to my surprise, it was a tow-truck. Very realistic. Deciding to take it upon myself, figuring it never hurts to ask. I sent an instant message to the owner isis Kittinger (jdeberhart). Instantly a reply of yes how can I help you? To which I would reply with a request to test drive said vehicles..1, 2 ,3..You get the idea. Immediately I was shocked by how little the car was, than was told promptly that it has a resizer script. Also that this is HER OWN, built from the ground up, scripting. I thoroughly enjoyed the test drive and all the options this vehicle has. I URGE YOU!!! Go to her store! Check out the cars, you will NOT be disappointed.

Anyway, here are the photos!

Heh, I suppose some of you, who maybe still visit the blog. Are wondering where we have been? Well..real life can take over sometimes. It's crazy how you can go from free time to non-stop crazy in a split second. So I wanted to come on and say a quick hi! Myself and Ophelia are not dead haha! 

Just also wanted to say, thank you all to have been reading and looking at the blog, postings will come soon again. Please stay tuned!

Happy New Year!?

I do want to apologize for my recent absence. I have been sick, had some personal real life issues going on. I do want to let all of you lovelies know that I will be starting to blog again hopefully soon. 

It's funny, usually peoples busiest time is around the Holidays, however mine is usually AFTER, usually getting sick, or having to deal with a lot of family things. Either way, no excuses! I hope you all enjoyed your New Year, and we will see you soon!

Must Have Mondays: The Birkin

 The Birkin is a bag that speaks of luxury, status, and taste. So imagine our surprise when we came across them inworld @ Ricielli! At a measly 220L, they are more than worth it and the animations inside them are just lovely and work with most AO's..

To own a Birkin bag in real life for most is impossible. Which is why Second Life is so fantastic! All you need is a little mad money as I call it, and wam-bam-thank you ma'am, you got yourself a fantastic purse. 

Nicole: Personally my favorite color, is the iconic tangerine color. 

Ophelia: Whilst my favorite has to be the scarlet.

The great thing about the Birkin, it's real life original design was meant to be a classic carry on for Jane Birkin, something that would not fall apart easily, and that is stylish yet casual enough for jet setting or even some casual shopping. 

until next time sweeties

Tutorial Tuesday: Green Screening

Green Screening has become VERY simple since the first days of photo- editing, so I thought I'd share with you guys a quick and easy way to do so using gimp.

Step 1:

 Take a picture with a completely green background. ( typically I just res a box and blank out the texture and turn it green) it should look like so:

Step 2:
 Close Gimp ( I use Gimp 2.6) and download a free script here

Step 3:
  Double Click to install the script, let it run and open Gimp Back up. Your toolbar should now have a video option and look something like this:

Step 4:
Open up your screen screened picture and on your toolbox, select the "Move" tool( I've highlighted this in red). The reasons for this I will discuss in a moment.

Step 5:
On your toolbar, go to video and select "Bluebox." This should pop up options for bluebox.

Bluebox options should look like this:

Step 6:
Now that your bluebox menu is up, select keycolor and that should bring up another menu for selecting color. Use the select color tool on that menu (I've highlighted it in red) and click the green screen on your image and hit "Ok." ( If you didn't select the "move" tool, then you will end up applying whatever tool you had selected to the image i.e. pencil, crayon, airbrush, etc.) Your Keycolor should now be green and match your green screen.

Step 7:
Now you can toy with your settings to your heart's content, but really the only ones you need mess with  are Threshold H ( I keep mine below 200) and Feather Radius (2 or less seems to be best).

Step 8:
Once you're satisfied, hit "Ok" and your image should be transformed, turning the green into an alpha!

Step 9:
Have fun adding new backgrounds!

Until next time!

Awesome Little Hunt!

Hello lovelies! Okay, I stumbled upon 1992 again, and when I arrived I was greeted by a large Christmas Tree! (pics below) There is a darling little Christmas hunt, now each "gift" is 25L dollars, but for the quality of the items let me tell you, you will not be disappointed.

(Oh and a word of advice?)

Make sure you use your camera controls to search around the stores, and really read the clues. Its a pretty easy hunt! Much love darlings!
