AnacondaS Wave Dancer

AnacondaS Wave Dancer Boat

The Wave Dancer. Get that free demo, yo.

When Second Life gets a bit stressful, it’s time to put down the obligations and do something fun. My suggestion? Get out on the water. Grab a free boat, visit the Blake Sea, and start sailing. Whether you do so with a motorboat like the Magellan, or a sailboat like the Fernseed Keelboat, you’re sure to calm down after listening to the sounds of the pixel ocean for a while. (Don’t forget to grab this free swim HUD too.)

After a while, you might get tired of free boats and want something a bit nicer. If you have the Lindens to spend, take a look at the AnacondaS Wave Dancer.

It’s amazing how spacious the Wave Dancer is inside. You won’t need to adjust your camera unless you prefer driving in mouselook or third-person. It also comes with a full working kitchen, bathroom/shower, cabin/bed, and dining area. There’s a media player just behind the driver’s seat for if you want to play videos while you’re out boating. The dashboard holds a fuel gage, working GPS system, and radar. Even the microwave works, which I found to be charming.

You can seat 14 people on it–great for parties or running a tour around the Blake Sea or other body of SL water. The boat turns a little too fast for my tastes in the water, but that’s because it’s meant for driving primarily in mouselook. If you’re using an Oculus with this boat, however, you’re in for a pretty great time.

The drawbacks of it are small but ultimately decided why I didn’t buy it yet. For everything the Wave Dancer has, the one thing it doesn’t is a multi-sit system. For 2900L, this is something I’m hoping the builder will fix.

You see, when you’re out boating, you need to be able to move around your boat without standing up. If your boat doesn’t have a system where you can click and choose various poses on the craft, you’re going to inevitably have to stand up–which might cause your boat to be returned while you’re in the middle of the sea. Multi-seating systems solve this problem while letting you “live” on your boat. Some boats like the A-T Portal Tug even have a roaming system that lets you walk around the boat without ever getting out of your seat.

I’ve sent a request to the Wave Dancer’s builder to see if they’re interested in implementing a multi-seating system. If they do it, I’m snatching up this boat as soon as I can.

I still highly recommend you trying out the Wave Dancer, though. The demo will let you drive the boat for up to two hours. It only counts the minutes the boat is actually in the water! It’s great for letting boaters decide if they’d like to purchase it or not.

If you know of a boat I should check out, contact me in-grid (Aemeth Lysette). For more destinations, check out the SL Sailing directory. See you on the water!

SL furniture have the craziest poses! When I find something to sit on, the built-in poses rarely ever fit me. I sat on this old chair at Baja Sands, slowed down the animation in SL, and waited patiently to capture the exact moment where my head faces forward and my hands do not intersect with my legs. It took longer to get a good shot this way, than if I had used my own poses, but I felt like a challenge today!

Today’s post is about the new feet update from SLink. Read the post over at SLink’s blog for all the news that you need to know. I’m really excited about the new HUD in the Deluxe Pack, new feet styles, and the ability to control left and right foot styles separately (great for photos!).

Suomi-Finland

Suomi-Finland

I highly recommend visiting the frozen wilderness of Suomi-Finland! I absolutely love uncluttered nature sims, they’re gorgeous for photos and everything rezzes super fast! I’m not exactly dressed for the winter landscape, but it works for me. I am wearing the Fool for Love hairstyle from Magika. I had a hard time deciding between the normal hair color packs or the colorful dip-dye packs. I went with the dip-dye packs cos COLORS!

Suomi-Finland

I’m still wearing the LeLutka mesh head today. My friend asked me if I’ve abandoned my default SL head forever, and I don’t know the answer to that question. I just like to mix things up a bit now and then, and I’m giving this head a try until I want something else. Just because I am wearing something that’s available to the masses, that doesn’t mean that I can’t make it uniquely me. I challenge you to find someone else wearing this exact head that looks like my clone.

What I’m Wearing:

LeLutka Mesh Head – Stella
Lara Hurley Skin
Magika – Fool for Love

LeLutka Mesh Head / Lara Hurley

LeLutka / Lara Hurley

If you don’t fall in love with a mesh head right away, keep trying it with NEW skins. Today I am revisiting the LeLutka Stella face and pairing it with the Cerise skin from Lara Hurley Skin. I tried this skin on with all the LeLutka mesh heads, and found that it looks best on Stella and Karin. The lips fit best on these two faces, and they don’t stretch or warp.

LeLutka / Lara Hurley

Recently I previewed the upcoming skin fair, and found so many skin appliers. There’s truly something for everyone! I want to expand beyond my favorites to find new favorites, but I won’t compromise my taste. I like youthful skins with smooth and bright skin tones and subtle makeups. The Cerise skin from Lara Hurley is truly beautiful and inexpensive for the options that are available (brows, lips, eyes). I wish that the skin offered a true ‘bare’ face though, cos with the closed-eyes option on LeLutka Mesh Heads, the eyeliner stretches a lot and it looks messy. *hint* Please make a no-makeup eyes option.

Today I am at the beautiful Everlong sim! I coveted this Fawn Friend from MishMish but didn’t want to play the gacha machine. I’m just unlucky in gacha, but Sasy is not! She won this fawn for me, and I’m super grateful! <3
