Valentines: The Aftermath Part II

Valentines... hearts, flowers, romance, love... and did I forget to mention a bit of post nuclear / apocalyptic carnage thrown in for good measure. Yes it's time to get your creative heads on again and join Virtually Live Events to celebrate Valentines in style!

Think of it as a Mad Max v Love Actually v Escape From New York mashup... kinda like Hugh Grant starring as Hanibal Lektor... kinda like... well just get creative!

To help you out with some simple clothing creation I've placed a few links below :













Like all good things, we need Robins t-shirt template / tutorial :
http://www.robinwood.com/Catalog/Technical/SL-Tuts/SLPages/RSW-TShirt.html

Adding rips to your shirt is easy.. using the eraser tool, specify one of the tear/rip brushes from the link below. Save the image as a transparent image - png is easiest - and you have your new t-shirt template to upload to OpenLife, complete with rips..

Blood tattoos anyone ? Use Robins template again as a guide, so you get the blood in the right place, create a new layer, and use the blood brushes from the link below. Hide all layers except your blood layer, and save as a transparent image again. Create a new tshirt in OpenLife, and use your new blood texture..

Don't worry if you don't have time to be creative .. they'll be plenty of freebie items on the Virtually Live sim over the next 2 weeks :)





Grand Indeed!



Digi has added another beautifully crafted instrument to Virtually Live's growing collection - a 241-prim grand piano.

I have not seen a finer piano in any virtual world and my only regret is we cannot see inside this gorgeous build, which is a good argument for raising the link limit!

Thanks Digi!

As follow-up, Debbie sent a message a few days later to thank the Openlife community for such a great response. She said she had a "blast!"
