Mon Amie’s Active Summer Girl!

Mon Amie cafe on the Omotesando sim has a really cute limited release called “Active Summer Girl”.  It’s a collaboration between Amerie’s Naughty, (Uncleweb Studio), and Kana-Na.  The pictures below feature the Amerie’s Naughty S&S T-dress, and the Giselle hair in Angel shine&mesh pink.

The hair is copy/mod, and the dress comes with two options for the top half:  you can wear the prim version, or the non-prim version.  This allows you to opt for the body-hugging, snug look or the more blouson look of the prim version.

To see a sample of what the Kana-Na limited edition skin looks like, you can visit Amika Jewell’s flickrstream… or, just visit Mon Amie and check out the free demos. ^_^

When I saw the dress and hair, it immediately make me think, “Ooooh KEWT!” and I knew I wanted to play around with this look a lot!  I ended up putting together a short, silly dance music video with a song that’s been stuck in my head for the past couple of weeks.  Most of it was shot at Photon Pink’s sim.  I pretty much fell in love with Photon’s sim!  It’s whimsical and crazy colorful, and should be on your list of places to visit if you haven’t already been there.

Anyway, here’s my vid 😀

  2. Oh it’s super easy!! First I adjust my window to 800 x 600, then I turn off the user interface by hitting Ctrl + Alt + F1, and then I start up Fraps. Fraps has a free version that puts a little stamp on your footage, and you’re limited to taking 30 second clips at a time; I bought fraps though for I think $20 or $30. Was totally worth it 😀

  4. It is a very very cute video, Melanie.
    What made me interest in is the song “Lollipop”. I have to say I am a fan of K-Pop! I know it’s a song by 2NE1, and BIG BANG sings with these girls. May I ask “are you Korean”? I do want to make friends with Koreans! I am so excited and wish we can be “international” frineds!

  8. i’ve been trying to find a hud that would help with mouth movement…i thought you were able to do it on your own but i found out no….any advice?

  9. Hi veronica 🙂 The mouth movement is built into the client.

    Advanced > Character > Enable Lip Sync

    You have to be using voice and have your mic on for the mouth movements to activate. I also used to have a MotorMouth attachment that would make my avatar’s mouth move when I typed, but I’d picked that up quite a while ago and it seems updates to SL have since broken it, I don’t know if the maker of it has updated it.
