So, I’ve been using Natalia’s instructions on how to make shoes, and let’s just say that I’m still in a learning curve. I wasn’t happy with my first go at the Heeled Pump, so tried it again. Here’s how it turned out:
These came out better than my first try. I used one of the textures and rotated and repeated the pattern to get a subtle dot effect. By the way, notice the shape of the foot? A post at the Mean Girl Guides to Second Life has a few words about how the feet, and don’t forget the ankles, appear in Second Life. Here’s another shot of the shoe from the side. I couldn’t get the invisibility prim to work properly and struggled trying to fix it. Sure enough, I find out the next day that some things weren’t working properly. Anyway, here’s the side view:
Yeah, a good chunk of the heel isn’t showing. Sigh.
I decided to branch out and make a pair of shoes all on my own. I wanted something with a heel and a bit of platform, but nothing tricky. I came up with something like this (now don’t laugh):
Here’s another creation that I’ll probably never wear, but it did get me playing with shapes:
Yes, a black belt with silver buckle. Hey, it’s a start!
By the way, I’ve taken classes in Second Life (as if I don’t have enough classwork in my real life). Here’s a shot of several people taking a class at the Rockcliffe University. I think this was the PRM 106 class (the blocks are part of the class materials we manipulate). I’ve done eight of the building classes at Rockcliffe and have learned a lot. Now I just have to learn how to make things look nice!
I’ll have another post soon of some of my explorations. Can you say Star Fleet Command? Geek heaven, baby!
