flo's vote for November 23, 2008

First time presenting, Thomaz Blackburn showed a very stylish and shiny (I like shiny :))set of lamps. In different colors, they also came with an on and off script.

Next up was Starfleets Ruska. He shared a piece he has been working on for 10 months and is still a work in progress. It was big, 1.3k prims big! Called "Persecution", it is a war ship.

With the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, you can always count on Holocluck Henly to have a holiday pool available :) . His Turkey Tureen tub filled with broth that you get into by climbing the ladle.

Another work in progress was presented by Paisley Ganesvoort... a little red wagon for tinies. Although currently not available for sale, Paisley hopes to make it and her tiny homes available in the near future.

Betty Tureaud showed a sub. It is a diesel and has great textures and also sound effects.

Then, Particle Royalty of SL and owner of The Particle Laboratory in Teal, Jopsy Pendragon showed off his new apparatus that he just finished the day before. "The Porgan 1800" is a particle organ, an instrument that allows to create particle "chords". Style and function together, you can set individual panels to create different parameters of particles. When your effect is created and you hit copy button, it spawns a copy of the effect which can then be taken and used immediately. No touching a script at all. Even non-scripters can create particles. If you'd like to play with one of these, they're installed at The Particle Laboratory...and available for sale as well.

Vlad Bjornson, award winning flower and plant creator, shared his latest... Oak trees. Made with sculpted prims, all the same sculpty, they are scripted with a menu change to change bark and leaf textures. Again, lovely creation Vlad!

On to flo's vote this week...

For those who like furniture with a lil "extra" Aaack Straaf presented his "flying couch potato". It's shape is inspired by 60's furniture style, and it can seat up to 5 avatars, using the provided pose balls.
But wait! The couch can also transform into a fully functional airplane! Innovative, fun, stylish yet silly... that makes this my vote for this week.

flo's vote for November 2, 2008

I am back with 'flo votes' but in a slimmer version of posts for now.

This week we saw the following presenters...

Pannie Paperdoll showed a fun Pumpking Bumper car set.

Also in a fun mode, Parser Lane show his Fire Tag game.

Ilsa Munro presented her first in a planned series of Victorian Air Ships.

Making use of the freebie textures available in the new Nautilis sims, Corcosman Voom showed a lovely Atlantean Gazebo.

A lovely classic piece, A Chinese Curio Cabinet with oodles of detail objects on it shelves was shared by Paddy Wright.

Holocluck Henly showed his retro Drive In Movie Screen.

But my vote this week goes to Bloodsong Termagant for his Tombstone. What made it fun and interesting for me is that the name on the tombstone comes from the avatar nearest it. :)

From 11.02.08

If any who presented post Slurls for people to see their creations in world, I will be happy to link to them in the post.

See you all next week, Sunday @ 2pm SLT
