FFXIV.SS #14 – Island Paradise

I’ve always been keeping up with my Island Sanctuary casually, thanks to the Overseas Casual discord server, so I have more than enough cowries. And because I managed to save up the experience from the Taskmaster, I got to Rank 14 shortly after patch release. And voilà!

Also, who can forget this precious little friend.

A most dapper little gentleman!

FFXIV.SS #13 – Elezen

I don’t use Fantasia often, but my Warrior of Light (WoL) has been a Miqo’te, an Au’Ra and a Viera. It happened that I volunteered to change appearance to help a friend out, and when it came time to change back, I decided she wasn’t going to stay as a (often hat-less) rabbit anymore.

Meet my Elezen lady.

Isn’t she a beauty?

Here’s what she looked like before as a bunny girl.

It’s a little funny. My WoL has always had some wardrobe limitations for the previous races.

The Miqo’te couldn’t wear many hats and earrings well, while the Au’Ra girl’s hair hid the majority of circlets and earrings, and wore many hats poorly too. Their petite frames also meant many armor and big robes felt bulky and I didn’t like that. Yet, I couldn’t find another hairstyle that I like to change to.

My Viera, well, the majority of the hats are invisible but she’s got the build to absolutely slay in so much of the clothes that my WoL previously couldn’t wear. My glamour dresser was bursting every now and then.

Now, my Elezen has none of the issues (except the bursting glamour dresser part)! I look forward to finding (and acquiring) the nice hats again. ^_^

I just learned about the Format Painter function in Microsoft Word yesterday that makes copy and pasting formatting so easy… I can’t believe I didn’t know about this wonderful little feature until now.

Bought a small foldable pool for my son to have some water fun in…. and it started raining for more than a day, causing the weather to stay cool. Just my luck, I guess…

FFXIV.SS #12 – Valentione’s G’raha Tia

I had the opportunity to join my fellow G’raha Tia lovers in a Art Party and so I took some screenshots of the lovely catboy who is dressed up with the newest clothes from the event, in the beautifully decorated FC house.

Bonus! An absolute angel!

FFXIV.SS #11 – The Shifting Gymnasion Agonon

Recently went treasure hunting with friends and entered The Shifting Gymnasion Agonon instance and my goodness, this place is so pretty!

Some Announcements for my Twitch Streams and etc

This is mostly meant for my Twitch regulars / viewers and I was going to post it on Discord. Then I posted it (as four separate messages too) and realize I wrote too much and it’s better as a blog post that I can also share to Twitter as well. ^^;

There are quite a few topics I want to talk about, so bear with me here.

Big News in Shizu’s life!

It’s been a while since I last posted, largely because of the broken images in the blog that I have only just fixed. Now that they are fixed, I’m more likely to make blog posts now.

However, it’s unlikely I’m going to be posting all that frequently either, because some time next month, I’ll have a little one to take care of.

Yes, I’m going to be a mama soon.

It’s going to be a huge life-changing event, or rather it already is. Worry not, this is not suddenly going to turn into a mummy blog. I may or may not have posts musing about thoughts on being a mother, but my need for privacy and security means I likely won’t share much, especially photos.

From start of October, I’ll have begun the long break from my live-streaming activities on Twitch and soon after, most of my gaming activities.

After giving birth, I will be focused on recovery and taking care of the newborn, and probably won’t be able to do much else anyway. I’m blessed in that I don’t have to worry about going back to work asap as my current work arrangements are very flexible, so I’ll take as long as I need to be in a good stable state before I restart live-streaming or work.

It’s likely to take a while before I’m back for good though, considering my energy level and spoons aren’t much to start with. But that’s something in the future, and who knows what that will hold for us? 🙂

Images are fixed! I’m back? Sort of.

I was feeling rather out of sorts and in a bout of procrastination, decided to login and update the wordpress software version. Which then led me to attempting to fix the botched image thumbnails and links (which, note to self, was caused by mismatched folders and image urls).

Long story short, images are fixed! So I don’t have a mental block stopping me from popping in and posting some FFXIV.SS or making posts now.

As for whether I’ll be posting more…. check out the other post about the Big News~

Just popping in a bit and updating the backend stuff but oh boy, the images are all mostly still broken somehow. I’m a bit swamped by work (and other matters), so it’ll be a while until I can sit down and fix them properly.

FFXIV.SS #10 – Magical Il Mheg

I was flying through Il Mheg to do my Miner’s Crystalline Mean quests and the colors of this place is just astoundingly beautiful. Reshade is used to make the colors pop a little more but even without, it’s still a gorgeous area.

Llama commands

2nd half of the llama-gif commands

These are the llamama gifs that subscribers of my Twitch channel are able to use in Twitch’s chat, and everyone in my Discord server can use. They are created by the very talented huiro, who also does amazing pokemon fanart. I have asked her for the permission to use the gifs for these purposes.
