Oh the poseability

Oh the poseability

The right pose can make or break a photo. In my research for new bento poses for blogging, I found that the best way to familiarize yourself with a variety of brands is through the Marketplace. I went on the Marketplace and searched for ‘bento pose’ then I filtered it by the Animations category, and sorted price from low to high. I found at least a dozen free or $1L poses that looks natural and cute for blogging. Smart brands give away nice freebies to showcase their products and gain new customers.

Cathedral in the sky

Cathedral in the sky

Hello from ChouChou! When I read that the beloved ChouChou sim was closing last week, my first thought was, “it’s still online?!” Apparently so, and now Linden Lab is trying to save it.

I’m pretty sure everyone with a last name in SL has visited ChouChou at least once. If you haven’t, you should go before it closes (but it may be saved!). I have visited this sim half a dozen times in the past decade, and I NEVER knew there was a cathedral in the sky until I read about it last week.

Hello from my backyard! Cheeky Pea just released the Taula Gazebo Set, perfect for when you’re inviting friends over for a drink. I just enjoy being outside in SL, and this ‘wine shed’ comes with everything I need to feel like it’s an actual living space – gazebo, furniture, lighting, and decor.

Now that I have assigned caregivers for my baby, it’s time to lounge in this gorgeous new release from The Secret Store. I’m wearing the Fawn Bodysuit & Cleo Lacey Vest, both available at Collabor88. I found the perfect wavy hair to go with this chill boho look, it’s the Avalon style from Exile.

Zooby Animesh Baby

Zooby Animesh Baby

I have always been an early adopter when it comes to new products on the grid. When I saw the promo videos for the Zooby Animesh Baby last week, I knew I had to have one! Ten years ago, I first blogged about Zooby babies; has it really been that long? The new Zooby Animesh Baby is interactive, adorable, and created by a brand that truly knows its customers.

Emily is the “Eden” model

Hello world, meet Emily! My future spoiled rotten toddler. She’s only a few days old, but she is already so stylish with brand new clothes and hair.

The Zooby Animesh Baby is $4,000L and includes so many options that it’s easy to redress it as different babies. For example, unlike the legacy baby, the new animesh baby includes a HUD to change skin tone, eye color, tint, and even the ability to buy extra skins for your baby. It works pretty much like mesh heads for your avatar, you can truly customize as more products are released.

Each baby includes a Zooby Animesh Baby HUD and Zooby Animesh Texture HUD. All the caring, rezzing, and clothes shopping is done through the HUDs!

There is a caregiver HUD available so you can assign caregivers and friends to help keep your baby’s happiness level up. Your baby will not die if you don’t do any caregiving (only in Second life!) but it’s an extra interactive feature that makes this baby so realistic. My friends have volunteered to look after my baby and keep her happy, cos I will go broke keeping her clothed! It truly takes a virtual village to raise a child, LOL.
