Feel the wind through my lashes!
It's not a good thing if you go AFK at my club. You might end up with two girls on you. Hm...I guess for some guys that's not a terrible fate.
I hit up the hunt over at Haute Couture tonight. Either I'm just a REALLY bad hunter, or these gift boxes really were just that tiny. lol I didn't find everything that I've seen in blogs, but I don't really mind all that much because I really only went over there because Creamy had blogged that caLLie cLine had those biiiig eyelashes there. They're not in a giftbox, but a pair of them are only $1L at that location. Not sure for how long, though. I was really excited because I've been dying to try them out, only I couldn't justify to myself spending them money on them just because they're so wild and I don't dress wild very often.
They are cool, don't you think? I know people have been calling them lashes for drag queens [which, truthfully, I know a couple of guys that would go WILD for these in RL], but I also think they're fun for parties. I tinted these ones blue. I need to get in there and resize them a bit for my eyes.
Bah...looking at Freestyle again, now I want to go back and try to find some of the outfits from the hunt. Maybe a few more people have cleared out so it won't be so laggy.
Ok, so a lot of people have been saying that they just don't understand why avatars look so pixelated with the new viewer. This gem is due to the new "Avatar Impostors" that you get with the viewer. It's supposed to help with lag, but quite honestly, I never did see a difference with them on or off, and having them on annoys me. If you want to turn this option off, go into your Preferences, and hit the Graphics tab. Make sure the box next to Custom is checked. This will bring down a whole bunch of options. In the lower left hand corner, under Avatar Rendering, uncheck the box for Avatar Impostors. And poof, no more pixelated people! It's always good to leave the Custom box checked, this way you can change your draw distance. Remember, the higher your draw distance is, the greater your lag is probably going to be. I keep my draw distance pretty low normally. It's very rare that I feel the need to have it over 128m. Usually I'm at 64-96m. For my purposes, it suits me fine. :)
Blah, ok. I have to go back to the hunt. At least for the RFyre outfit. Then it's off to bed, since I have to get up early-ish for once.
