From left to right you are constantly reminded that you need to buy new virtual items, from useless mesh things to expensive clothing that only look freaking cool and awesome on the posters and in reality you are saying “What the fuck!!”. Oh yes I have said that a few times also after I tried the demo, because the demo was not 100% like the product I paid for. I have so many times been standing there in the middle of the room wondering if the designer have to many events to keep track off that they simply does not give a fuck about their product quality, sad that many well-known designers barely have time to review their product all they do is splash on a texture than off you go.
At least this is the feeling I am stuck with this summer alone I have sent notecards to a few designers and complain about their “mesh leaking clothing”, and sadly you do not get a replacement or a refund. I get from no answer at all to oh..thanks we will look into it. That does not help me at all, how am I going to be happy about the 300L dress I bough and all you say is sorry.
It’s about time there come a user – consumer agency that actual take care of these things, I fed up with these designers that does not care or give a fuck about anything as long as the Lindens are rolling in on their account(s). I should have rights as they have when people copybot their shit, where are my rights when thief designers does not stand by their product(s).
There are still old second lifers that pretend they does not know when it comes to how consumer rights works, and how to run a business. I am not going to go into the brands this day but I have encountered so many old and new brands where they have no clue about customer service or they simply do not care. But when you boil it all down you need to shake some Linden ears to, they should have set some ground rules on how to run a business but we all know all they care about is our money in any currency.
Shopping for a nice dress these days can make anyone looking like a slut if you forget to put your panties on, I have tried many times to put my mesh cotton panties on under a new dress and failed. It appear that the creators of these nice outfits does not make panties, are we all doomed to walk around with the pussy out or your girl cock dangling down between your legs.
Are we letting ourself become something we are not, most of the time I can alpha out but when you have a sexy short dress where the alpha do more harm that good then you in trouble. You have this huge dilemma and all these questions race thru your head making you wonder if anyone care if you have no panties on, and does it matter if some noob or guy see your private part?
I should hope it does not care but I know there are plenty of those out there in the virtual world that treat their SL life as it was their RL, that is their thing I guess if you can’t disconnect your real life and have a fabulous virtual life where you leave the real concerns outside the internet. I would not care of someone got a kick of looking up my skirt or dress and see what I have under it, it that is their thing then they should be allowed to be freaks.
Last of all I wont mention the dress on blog but I am sure those of you who drop a substantial amount of Lindens on virtual clothes every week know where I got this one, a creator I have not got a whole lot from since I have not been entirely happy with things I paid for in the past and the ceremony to complain about the product I gave up cause she never got back to me. But this I got last night cause it looked so nice, and again I failed to try a demo.
I took the time to go and look at the hair fair and once I got there I was instant confused, I found it to be very much hard to navigate around could be a few teleport boards and they should have put things of certain categories stuff closer to each other. I am sure there are spots I never got around to see, was too much back and forth and that made me give up.
Also other friends I ask about the fair say they are somewhat disappointed over the hair, they where more concerned that the creators had not overdone themself in the creation phase. I liked most of the hair samples I have tested today and also the free gifts was cool, but it makes me sad when a creator charge 1$L for a gift that is greedy and I walk straight past their vendors not even a peak.
There you have it I did not buy any thing at the fair cause for one I was broke, and the I got some nice gifts I can use. It is a shame that every thing in this world cost a fortune, 300 a week from LL and what do you get for that not much would be the correct answer.
After being absent from second life for a long time due to real life and other not important things I have been able to log on and enjoy this virtual world again, and now even more stores to spend the precious lindens in buying all kinds of outfits. I was not sure where to buy the good clothes so I decide to go visit one of the store I liked best in the old days, I remember last time I shopped at her place it was a court-yard like it is now but I was almost knocked off my feet when I walk inside the store.
All the amazing outfits that cried to me “buy me., you need me”, I managed to sneak past that and when I walk further inside the store I am getting a weird feeling I have seen this type of store before. I had to tell a friend that it felt I was in Ikea cause I went from clothes department and into furnitures, and I was thinking I had walked thru a loop-hole first and ended up in an alternative dimension cause the Indyra I remember made amazing clothes and shoes. So for me it’s a mystery what happen, have designers become so desperate to sell things that they practically sell anything.
I walked around fearing I would walk into the car department and thank god I did not do that. I did not find anything at her store today maybe when I get used to the Ikea feeling I will be able to shop there again, for now I stick to the fair’s.
To back up my conclusion I made two pictures so you can see the Ikea of SL.
