Adobe’s new Generative Fill feature in Photoshop (beta) is a game changer! You need to Google it right now and be amazed at all of the creative uses. I’ve been playing around with it all week by adding accessories to my Second Life avatar, changing the background in my photos, and expanding missing portions of a cropped image. The best thing about Adobe Generative Fill is that you can leave it blank and let AI figure out how to fill in the missing pixels.Continue reading

Hello to new beginnings! I rented a sweet seaside cottage in New Haven, so I guess you could say Gogo is a resident of New Haven, Maine now. I’ve always wanted to move to Maine, to be closer to one of my favorite authors. Can you guess who that is?
New Haven is a roleplay estate with commercial and residential rentals for all budgets. You can even just rent a boat slip, horse stall, or hotel room for as little as L$100/week. This is a roleplaying community if you want to roleplay, but if you just want a nice place to take photos, you can do that too.
From what I’ve seen, New Haven is always full, so if you’d like to rent a home, just sign up for the waitlist! That’s how I got my current place. I signed up months ago, and it just recently became available.Continue reading
Hello from Paris!
I love trying to piece together a complete outfit from a hunt. Belle Epoque always has the best hunts for about L$10 per item. I can’t recall if I’ve done the Summer Hunt or Birthday Hunt before, so I did it again. Belle Epoque revived two older hunts until June 15th, so you can get them too if you didn’t in the past. You can preview the hunt guide on Seraphim.Continue reading
Hello from the Asian Pacific Heritage Festival 2023!

Introducing Previously in Second Life, a new feature where I recap the latest news from around the grid if it’s an interesting week. Here are some things you may have missed:
- Casinos are back in Second Life! Bookmark these two forum threads for some great bedtime reading: Casino in Second Life? is Gambling Back? and So they banned Gacha but…
- The long-awaited Victorian Community Region at Merrymount is open! I played games and won so many prizes. The games are free, fun, and easy!
- Open floor plans for Victorian Linden Homes are here! You can get your updated home in the mailbox.
- BelliHub and BelliDemo are regions where residents can go to demo all of the Linden Home styles on Bellisseria, get tips, and play games.
- Marketplace Spring Cleaning, some old stuff is getting unlisted/disabled.
- May 14 (today) is the last day that merchants can sign up for Shop and Hop and other SL20B events!
- Sign up for a Bandana Day Kit for Hair Fair 2023! All finished bandanas must be in by 29th May 2023 – Available on Marketplace.
- Looking for a new shopping guide? It seems that people are broadening their event marketing horizons, giving themselves newer opportunities as early adopters in sites like SugarSL.
Welcome to the Helios Casino & Lounge. Linden Lab created a roleplay casino experience in Second Life where residents can play the games with free daily tokens. When the tokens run out, residents can buy more with Linden dollars. But wait a minute, I thought casinos were banned in Second Life? Well, they still are. The Helios Casino is a fake casino where you can spend real money to buy tokens and play games to win coins that you can’t cash out or convert back into Linden dollars or real money.Continue reading
Hi Aurelias friends,
It’s with a heavy heart that we’re announcing the closure of Aurelias – the region will go offline tomorrow. We’re so thankful to everyone that visited and enjoyed our small town. We hope to see you again in the future on another project!

Do you love goodies? Head over to Elm for the Spring Fling Scavenger Hunt. Grab a basket and search around for eggs, then redeem them for prizes. The entire set is super cute for our springtime garden and comes complete with decor & food. You have until April 30th to complete the hunt.Continue reading
A few months ago, I blogged about MidJourney art in Second Life. Second Life designers are now using AI to create more than just pretty pictures for sale. AI can also create seamless textures, help with logo creations, and other graphic design elements. It can be used as a tool to help with the creative process if used wisely.
I’ve been playing around with Stable Diffusion to give my Second Life avatar more realism, but not so realistic that it looks like a morph. I try not to stray too far from the original Second Life image, and that requires trying a lot of different settings. You can view my AI Glow Up album on Flickr for all of the images.Continue reading
Second Life residents were feeling a mix of emotions after Linden Lab announced that the new mobile app for Second Life would only be available exclusively on iOS Apple devices. While some residents were thrilled to be able to access Second Life on their beloved devices, others are feeling sour. Windows and Android users expressed their dismay, with one resident exclaiming, “This is the ultimate betrayal! I’m heartbroken!”
“I’m so mad that I can’t use the app. I’ve been waiting for an app for years,” says MissNaughty210663. “This isn’t fair!”Continue reading
