The mess that is my Inventory

Hey Lovelies,

 

I´ve mentioned a thorough inventory- clean up on my latest statement. Within the last weeks the topic came up in the forums, repetitively and my system was always complimented when I explained how I sort my inventory.

Back in …2009? I hopped on a Posestand and didn´t leave it for 6 weeks (yeah you read that right…) taking raw, simple pics for EVERY fuckin item I bought…

Those pictures are hilarious I tell ya!! Naked with only a shirt, bald with nothing but a pair of jeans, blurry face but the dress rezzed just fine. Stuff like that.

On my HDD (synched with Dropbox and Nextcloud) I created the exact subfolders that I have inworld.

 

Actually… I didn´t take pics of EVERYthing… I just started to  weed out and catalogize all those accessories, followed by furniture, makeup, poses and photo stuff.  You bet I´ll be so glad when that´s all done cos I have no idea what everything is and I basically do need that shit, spech when I think of going back to blogging.

 

Erm… I´m derivating. Where was I? Oh… right! Everytime I buy something new I put it in either “zum auspacken” (unpack) or if it comes unpacked it goes into “einsortieren und knipsen” (sort and snap). As soon as a picture of it is saved offline it goes in the corresponding inworld folder.

 

If I am hunting or raiding gifts  I might go some days without unpacking and snapping pics, but I try to keep that up. Plus it helps me procrastinate with the remaining folders of horror! I do start to see a massive impact though, starting at 83k I´m now down to 62k items. Plus I throw out sizes I don´t wear and all those rezzing poses that want to animate your avatar during unpacking, unpacking scripts and stuff.

I do have back ups in my “Do not delete” Folder and if all else fails there´s usually redelivery ;).

This system works like a charm for me and I´ve been thinking about giving classes about it back in the days. Who knows what might happen?

 

Till then,

 

love,

Kasha

Hm… I guess it´s time to come clear

Hello Lovelies,

yes, I´m still alive … thank God? Unfortunately? I´ll leave that up to you.

There are no words that can express how terribly sorry I am to have poofed so suddenly, without a word. It´s nothing you should do, especially not as a sponsored blogger.

Let me give you a short recap of what happened in the last 3 years:

  •  I had a major burnout, followed by a boreout cos my colleagues didn´t give me any tasks after the burnout in case it was too much for me (well cleaning the coffee machine 3 times a day really does your head in, trust me…)
  •  there was a nasty break-up as in I got dumped pathetically
  • I was at home for 2 years – plenty of time but I was struggling financially as it is and my desktop was too old to run SL properly, let alone take acceptable pics
  • I met the man of my dreams and we became best friends
  • I started StarWars Cosplay and joined the 501st Legion German Garrison as                TI – 68713
  • I got a new laptop and returned to SL because as you might remember I abuse Kasha for Character Pics *coughs*
  • Last Christmas I got a new PC (admit it you sung it in your head^^)
  • I started retraining as an office clerk (I worked in offices for years, but in Germany you need a certificate for everything…)

So yeah, while I do have the hardware to blog again I´m nowhere near capable of returning to where I was.

Back then it was like this:

  1.  styling
  2. setting up the spot
  3. cranking the graphics up
  4. praying to whoever was available – all of them
  5. taking the pic
  6. cropping/”editing”
  7. typing the blog entry in blogspot (this one is actually written on wordpress^^)
  8. posting
  9. PR:
  • crossposting to WordPress, Tumblr, moolto, what have you
  • FB (the blog´s page, Kashas Profile, about 300 SL Fashion groups (no really… I kid you not…)
  • inworld groups
  •  Flickr including all tags, links, groups

all of that took me up to 3 hours PER POST.

My current SL budget is 40€ a month which is about 12k L$, 7k for rent and 5k for shopping. You see that´s dropped down severely. Now with D (the name continues but let´s introduce him as D ^^) …we´re going to move in next year but until then the cats and I go over every other weekend plus there are the 501st events, we´re in 2 PNP rounds (Shadowrun 5 and D´n´D 5) and  we´ve got a monthly SW get-together so it´s one free weekend. My retraining is full-time so that kills another 10 hours every Mon – Thu, 6 every Friday.  I´ve started bullet-journalling (yes, I do have one for SL, too XD) and I´ve started to clean my inventory, take pics of the  stuff I didn´t take pics of back then (accessories, poses, furniture, textures) – I´m down 21k (still 62k in there^^).

Plus there´s these damn Mesh heads. I´ve demoed everyone and their kids and moms and whatever I could find… NOT ONE I liked… so this will take quite a while, too.

You get the idea, IF I´d return to blog there´d be waaaaay less  PR, it´d basically just be:

  • yadda yadda -> post
  • crosspost to either Blogspot or WordPress
  • FB: Blog page and Kasha´s page
  • inworld groups
  • Flickr

plus it´d be waay less frequent of course and not regularly. I just can´t tell how much I´ll be on tomorrow, next week, what have you.

I miss blogging, I really do. But that´s the only way it could be. There´s no way any sponsors would accept me (back) like this so I wouldn´t have sponsored posts and deadlines either.

Ok ,now you´re informed what happened, why I did what I did and yeah. I´d love to talk to you though. Via IM inworld or on the forums? I´m quite active there…

Til then,

Love,

Kasha

 

Game of Thrones – House Troy

Hey Lovelies,

hm ok I couldn´t let this opportunity pass.

When Wicca saw yesterday´s post she offered me a dress. ME! a DRESS! ..well challenge  accepted.

She surprised me with a model called Cercei.

Now for all Game of Thrones Fans out there this name DOES ring a bell or two and most likely not the most positive ones.

Neither does it with me to be honest as I´m not a fan of the House Lannister (ok Tyrion is ace but that´s the acception to the rule). This post gives me the chance to portrait a very own version of Cercei though  – which is a pure pleasure because well Ikari and I are Game of Thrones fans, my RL phone´s Background and cover feature both our banner sign and family motto:

ok it features an old motto *gg*

The motto had been changed to “Family, Duty, Honour”, when Jacob Troy was made head of the Clan as a wedding gift. His aunt abdicated as the Head of the Clan after binding us as husband and wife. (Jacob Troy and Arali’wa Raven-Troy are our RP Chars at sw-empire.de , a German StarWars ChatRoleplay, you met my other Char Rhian de-Girondel at my first collaboration with Wicca).

Another sign of my love for GoT MIGHT be the name of our RL cats, who moved in when I moved to this lovely flat on July 1st, 2013:

Arya (left) and Daenerys (aka Dani. right),

2 spanish girls I got from a shelter, born Feb 26th, 2013

But now let´s get to my interpretation of Cercei:

I am not Cercei Lannister, nor will I ever be. I understand that she would do anything for her children (so would I, even though at this point in my life my “children” are those two cats or close friends from the RP I mentioned above – lovely young adults aged 24,22 and 16), but the most dominant part that is portrayed in the HBO Series´ – and I think n the books as well is one her being a cruel woman with no mercy and a big love for intrigues (and her brother Jaime – no I could not let that slip *gg* – well until he lost his hand that is… – see  – she´s mean!).

The dress inspired me to do a softer version of Cercei… Cersha if you want …Kacei? Pfft you get the intentions my clever lovelies,

black haired instead of blonde, tattoed (hey it´s mainly roses  – the flower of looooove 😉 )

I even put my hair into a bun to show you the lovely backside …of the dress – and my tattoo which fits so perfectly to the laced corset (Wicca knows of my love and passion for corsets *blushes*).

(excuse my poor attempts at picture editing XD still learning)

What? What was that? Because Tommen is not old enough yet and Joffrey is dead Cercei is the current Queen and a Queen needs a crown?

Happy now? 😛 Both crown and this epic shoulderpiece are included of course.

I´ll tell you another secret: They´re engraved…. What they say you ask? According to Wicca´s husband Redclaw Inshan it says :

 Ruler of the Seven Kingdoms

Now tell me my lovelies, what do you think of my interpretation?

Fashion Police Pt. 2 – Wicca´s Exclusiveness

Hello again Lovelies,

as I mentioned earlier I´ll be posting VERY irregularly – yes that can also include 2 posts a day… or 3 or 4…

Spech as this one has been prepared and on the list for several days now, too – and the exclusiveness of this item is SO exclusive, that I could ask the people who HAD the chance to get THIS very colour to say hi to me… (maybe do a photoshoot together – is it possible to squeeze 50 ppl in one pic? Does anybody have a pose for that?). The Outfit was part of the Coutuires Dock´s November *yep I know I´m far behind *blushes*  *.

…OOOPS!!! I blabbered… and gave away the number of availability for this special colour : FIFTY!

By now they´re all gone ( I know that without asking dear Wicca, cos when we spoke last week it´s been down to 26 already 😉 )

 as it looks very uniformesque again I thought I´d return to my Fashion Police duties

so many things I see on a daily basis in basically EVERY life make me cringe and hide my poor eyes ;P

Style Card:

Hair: Alice  Project Tyr *create your own . thats indigo with rainbow streaks here xD*

Clothes: Jacket Charlotte, Pants Anakri, Heels Jane *slink high ;)* by Wicca´s Wardrobe

Poses: Miamai

Background : Katink

Now am I the only one who has to think of the ever so awesome Anakin Skywalker (aka Darth Vader) from Star Wars? Actually I´m daring Wicca to comment if that´s who had inspired her and if not – who did 😛

Also I´ll be doing some photoshoots in the meantime when I don´t have the energy to blog so keep an eye on my flickr. The difference for me is that I post the blog to several sites and communities which makes it quite some work, whereas I only upload, tag and put the photos in groups and stuff for flickr.

I hope you understand, have mercy on my soul, things are harsh at the moment.

I love you from the bottom of my heart,

Akasha

A Session with Klubwerk

Hello Lovelies,

no I did not abbandon you again – I´m SO sorry but my RL is quite a trip at the moment… so I will keep on blogging quite irregularly  – sometimes it might even appear regularly but I cannot guarantee anything. I let some nice applications by stores looking for bloggers slip due to that fact 😦 but I´m too embarrassed with my current sponsors already to disappoint more 😦

ANYWAYS  – our dearest Kiana from Klubwerk has spoilt us bloggers with a massive badass autumn/winter package:

meet  Julia, the jacket and Nora, the Bodysuit

this is the Marley Skirt and Top combination

now here we got Moira, that comes with a “Bad Girl” pullover as well:

see? 😉

 Meet Olaf, the “Norwegian” pullover (we call them Norwegerpulli over here in Germany)

and this is Nora again  – without Julia this time as it´s gotten a bit warmer… or I might have had a glass of wine…. or two? *mumbles*

Style Card:

My Standard Look

Clothes: Julia, Nora, Marley, Moira and Olaf by Klubwerk

Hair: LeLutka Chill

Poses: several Glitterati

Backdrop: KaTink

Now Lovelies, as you can see I´ve been tinkering with paint,net a bit, as I´ve seen this at many (of your?) blogs and I´ve always loved it. YES, I know I still suck at it but  you know I like to take you all along the way – so we can maybe sit together and laugh at my “early attempt failures” – have you seen the first posts I did back in 2012? THOSE PICS….omg XD

Erm yeah, enough of that I´ll leave you alone now 😉

love,

Akasha

Wicca´s Warrior

Hello Lovelies,

2 days ago was a horrible day for my RL, crowning a horrible time I had recently. I logged onto SL, waited to have a talk and cuddle with Ikari – just some couple time, fuck the worlds and stuff. Suddenly the Starwalkers2010 groupchat popped up and it soon turned into a vivid and fun conversation with belladonna Wexhome, AnneMarit Jarvinen and Wicca Merlin – and yours truly.

We talked about several things but then Wicca Merlin IM´ed me…

By the time she did I was skyping with Ikari and I went like  “OMG!!! OMFG!!!! WTF!!!!!” I explained who she is and he was quite impressed as well.

First surprise: she told me she wanted to contact me for some time but was too shy (well WHY? I´d never have dared to even look into her eyes without blushing or probably fainting….)

Second surprise: she´s amongst you, lovelies… one of you!

Third surprise: she gave me a lovely trio  – a very special trio to show to all of you.

Now what she gave me is her release for the [ROOM 69] event  – don´t worry it will be at her mainstore afterwards *grins*

I called the outfit Warrior cos I was reminded of some Officer maybe for a fashion police?

(The actual names are a se…. oh ok don´t look at me like that… They´re called Cayla, Renraku and Xena – now to find out who´s who you´ll have to go look 😛 )

All together – a lovely combination, right?

*lets her eyes wander to see if the folks are dressed nicely*

” PHEW!!! They´re looking so hot, I need to take my jacket off!!!

– TERMINATED –

Oh and look at this little slit on the lower legs – I just love that detail ^^

Hello Lovelies,

as promised we´re teaming up now to show you lot some of the newly released awesomeness on the grid.

Klubwerk´s Kiana has been busy and so has VRD´s Marzana.

On a special note according VRD  – it´s Frozen Rage´s bday today so – Happy Birthday Boss 😉

erm yeah – back to topic, right?^^

Both VRD and Klubwerk have spoiled me and us  with quite some niceness plus Ikari transformed into another RP Character of his. He´s an excellent Roleplayer and has tons of characters so be surprised. I´ll introduce them when I tell our story – are you guys even interested in that? 😉 Anyways. I guess I should explain the title – well the shoes are called “kleine Fledermaus” which is german for little bat. As I combined them with Klubwerk´s pants – well – they´re going clubbing *insert Alf´s HAAHAAHAAA tablepatting laughter here 😉 *

Ain´t he strong?

and sooo cool *swoons*

Though my arse isn´t too bad either, is it? 😉

But that´s enough from us today *closes the imaginary curtain of the Pavillion chuckling silently*
