The unsung heroes of Second Life marketing and collaboration are resident-run projects. I founded iheartSL in 2008 (over 14 years ago!) to help aggregate Second Life blog contents into a single central location, to help bloggers gain exposure, and to provide readers with a convenient one-stop shop to browse all the latest posts from residents. Over the years, I have mostly funded iheartSL with my own money and advertising support from sponsors. It is critical to support resident-led projects because they have frequently stepped in to fill gaps left by Linden Lab.
Today I’m highlighting an event that is one of iheartSL’s newest sponsors. I attended HONGDAE, a monthly shopping event hosted by Block5 Events. What I like about this event is that it isn’t too large, and when you teleport to it, the design is in a square shape, making it very easy to navigate. I found the cutest Kitty Cat overall and top set from Candy Kitten. This outfit is surprising in the back, you’ll have to get it to find out why.
This weekend, KUNI had a hair sale, and I ended up with so many new adorable hairstyles. I’m trying to diversify my hairstyle collection, so if you have any brands to recommend, please leave them in the comments!
The Nature Collective is one of the resident-run projects that I’m a member of and I wholly support. Emmalee Evergarden manages TNC, which is very well organized and community-oriented in order to highlight the best locations on the grid.
The Nature Collective is a Second Life group created with the goal of cultivating a community around sims, spaces and projects which share a common focus on nature. It is our hope to foster a movement to help people engage and reconnect with the wonder and joy of nature, in the virtual world and beyond.The Nature Collective
I’m taking part in the TNC Summer Hunt, which runs from July 18th to July 31st. Inspired by the nature theme, I created these Petal Clouds EEP Settings which include four distinct cloud variations. You can customize the colors of the sky and the sizes of the clouds. Feel free to make changes! This is available for free at Aurelias during the hunt and for sale afterward on Marketplace.
I’m a huge fan of the Environmental Enhancement Project (EEP) in Second Life. There are numerous ways to make the environment more magical by changing the textures and settings.
What I’m Wearing:
KUNI – Ivy (M)
Candy Kitten – Kitty Cat Overall, Top
MishMish – Cactus Cutie Companion (White)
Ingenue – Queen of the Galaxy Boots
