The Miix Event

I have been hitting the different events between wandering the beautifully decorated sims across the grid and wanted to show off one find that I was very impressed with. First, if you’re not familiar with the Seraphim website, they have a ton of info about sales with galleries, so I’m going to share the link to the Miix page here. Note: It’s SL, so some pictures on their site won’t be as modest as things I would post, but it’s a gallery picture page to show what each booth has. I’m just window shopping and not actually shopping right now, but I noticed an AO that has some cool features. Salt’n’Pepper put out Bento Set AO 4 and it is curve-friendly. I don’t know if many others struggle with this, but with a curvier avatar while Bre is pregnant, I’ve noticed that almost every non-pregnancy related AO I have tends to have some animations that cause arms and hands to go into the avatar body or they’re super exaggerated to accomodate a fluffy ballroom gown. Although Salt’n’Pepper’s AO is a bit pricier than I normally pay, if I was going to keep the fuller figure that Bre currently has, I think it’s definitely worth it. They have a demo at the event, so you can try it out and check if it works for your figure (I know it seems obvious, but I totally didn’t think of it a few times, so make sure to cam around your avi while trying the demo, to see if arms seem too far away from the body during movements, such as an idle movement of brushing hair back). And I admit that I am a sucker for a more elegant and less fidgety AO, despite my tendency to go for whimsy or adorkable. Just look at their ad!

And now to show you a few of my favorite ones I took pictures of, to show how it works with the Zooby LoveMomma Persephone body at almost full term…

Sometimes a nice stand without the hands up is super handy, in my opinion.

Just a touch of sass when walking 🙂

This is honestly the first AO where her hand hasn’t clipped into her hip or her arm through her torso, or been awkwardly further than the body frame is.

And I don’t use bags often, but this looks like it’d be perfect with a clutch. It’s still a dash posh to me, so I kind of love it. lol

If you’re not familiar with Seraphim, here’s their link and I definitely recommend checking it out. I’ve discovered so many events and items I probably would never have come across in my usual grid travels, and it also helps me remember what events are going on since I might have an issue with capping out my groups and notifications… 🙂
