Just when I think Second Life content can’t possibly get any better, it does get better, and that is the most exciting thing about being a consumer. This is the first time that I’ve seen bento animated hair, and I’m already craving more! I’ve seen animated hair from other brands, but I don’t know if they were bento or some other scripted method. Exile just released a few bento hairstyles, add them to your must have list! Watch the videos (Palace & Over the Edge) to see the animations! The hairstyles are even more stunning in-world cos the animations are so smooth.
How darling is this Vintage Blouse from ANE? I love the front of this blouse, it’s pleated and very pretty. Then I turned around, and I love the back even more! Vintage with a twist!
What I’m Wearing:
Exile – Palace (Bento)
ANE – Vintage Blouse @ The Vintage Fair
The Secret Store – Yulia Flare Skirt (Navy)
Ingenue – Lisbet Heels (Navy) @ Collabor88
I’ll be joining the Salchicha County mod team, so I decided to do so by dressing up as a park ranger. If you ever need a police uniform, I recommend the one from Epia. It has a lot of different texture options!
See you this weekend in the Salchicha sim!
What I’m Wearing:
Lelutka Simone Head
Pink Fuel – Doll Skin 2.0
Rc Cluster – Butterfly Net (at Seasons Story)
Every Pixel Is Art – Police Uniform
TRB Outfitters – Ranger Uniform (name plate, cap, and badge in this pic)
Truth – Elira (modded)
Have you checked out the new exhibit of Second Life’s history? I initially thought it would be a pile of cheerleading horseradish, but it turned out to have both praise and criticism of the company’s past. I recommend checking it out if you can.
Know that Bento horse I wrote about a bit ago? It’s being released tomorrow! The final price of the horse is L3889. There will be English and Western horses available to buy; if you purchase one variant, you can get the other horse for L1950.
That’s it from me! I’m off for outings, beachings, and tannings. See ya!
Last week I was in search of a well done urban based sim for the above photo of Ms. Elle. Even in my SL past, urban sims could be seriously hit and miss and were often not updated. Honestly I had absolutely no idea where to even start when I began this endeavor but I had an idea in my head for this photo that I wasn’t willing to let go. To remedy this, I went directly to my beloved Explore Second Life group on Flickr to find a spot that might work for me. One of the few urban sims that popped up after searching a few pages was one called Sexy Cat. Yeah I know…I should have gotten a hint from the sim name but it seemed “clean” in the photos and well done therefore I thought to myself – Mission Accomplished!
Any who, I popped on over and found the sim to be relatively uninhabited – the only other avi on the sim had a profile description that more or less said “Second Life Explorer”. So I sent Elle on a nice leisurely stroll in search of that perfect photo spot – something that would make this outfit definitely stand out. As Elle made her way around the place, I went through a mental check list in my head: Nice urban grunge feel (check), Bodega like stores (check), nice use of colors (check) and once the spot was found I was definitely ready to Rock and Roll!
Well midway through my photo taking a shadow appears on my screen and it stays there for a good long while. Of course in my head I am thinking “Dude, I am standing here not moving, looking like a dumb ass so….GET OUTTA THE WAY!” Then the familiar “ding, ding” happens and I get this IM from the male resident:
[2017/01/02 10:52] xx: hey hun
At this point, the sighing commences on my part as I begin formulate my wordy reply:
[2017/01/02 10:53] Elle Couerblanc: hello (So thoughtful and elegant a reply, right? Now profile perving commences and the vedict for this fella was “harmless”)
[2017/01/02 10:53] xxxx: how are you
[2017/01/02 10:53] Elle Couerblanc:: fine (suddenly I feel the need to check out the land info tab. Whoops – all the key words are there that should have been a huge red flag about the point of the sim when I tp’d in!)
(Okay now…wait for it…wait for it – the important question suddenly jumps into my brain. After a brief pause I type the words……) [2017/01/02 10:53] Elle Couerblanc: is this a sex sim or something? lol
[2017/01/02 10:54] xxxx: yes
[2017/01/02 10:54] xxxx: sexy avatar
[2017/01/02 10:54] Elle Couerblanc: haha oops I just liked the looks of it
[2017/01/02 10:54] Elle Couerblanc: thanks but I am just here taking photos (Now I feel bad…the guy really thought I was here for the same goals as him!)
[2017/01/02 10:54] Elle Couerblanc: sorry
[2017/01/02 10:54] xxxx: its ok hun
And then he continues on on his way leaving me to my work. Well you can’t blame the guy for trying, but unfortunately for him I was not his target audience! It was definitely a case of right place, wrong girl for this gentleman. At this point I am laughing at myself in real life for my total reborn noob mistake! Anyway Mr. Redacted Name Resident, I hope you found what you were looking for that day! Because regardless of anyone’s reason for being in Second Life, as long as you can legally buy cigarettes in the US and it involves others who can legally buy cigarettes as well (AND are on the same page as you), you are definitely entitled to live out your dreams in Second Life, whatever they may be! Rock on with your ePeens friends, just avoid the Blingis if you can!
Collabor88 opens today! That means you can get this cool shake weight from RC Cluster. There’s also lots of other cool fitness stuff at c88 for you to check out.
Today I build a cool background with the help of Torley Linden’s free textures! Drop by his sim to grab some textures for your next photoshoot. Be sure to tell him that you’ve used them; he likes seeing his work in action.
One of my favorite pastimes in Second Life is exploring Sims and the art installations throughout the grid. Since I am basically a noob these days, I have started to rely on flickr groups for places to explore. One of these groups is the Explore Second Life group that has a wealth of photos for me to draw from for locations and inspiration. One of these sims I came across in the group pool as Rosemoor; and since I was in the mood for another wintry photo from what I saw at Rosemoor this was just the place I was looking for.
My only issue with this photo is in my opinion, Elle is a bit under dressed. Honestly, in real life, if there was snow on the ground like this, I would have my happy ass in a big ole jacket! But this is a fantasy world and all so I can’t be too picky! Perhaps she has on an invisible jacket? YES that’s it – an invisible jacket, friends, which keeps her warm like nobody’s business! On a side note, I almost took this photo with demo skin on too – whoops! Noob, I tell ya….I am one big noob now!
Any who, that is all I have for the moment and my dog is demanding I take him for walk – STAT. So as per the norm, the details on the look can be found below along with all the SLurls to all the stores (am I being a good blogger or what). So until next time – take care my friends and have a great Second Life!
I am a huge fan of the Dystopian Genre and the game Fallout 4 is one of the few single player games I actually play. When I took this photo, for some reason Fallout 4 popped into my head when I looked at it again in Photoshop so I just rolled with it! The editing was minor though, just cropping and a simple “action” I came across a few years back which mainly just softens to look of the picture. Most of what you see though is pretty much Second Life at it’s finest – a gorgeous Windlight setting developed by Neva Xenga for her Neva Estates group of sims and the sim “junk” developed by Tab Tatham.
Sims like junk are what keep me wanting to take photographs in Second Life. For me, often my SL photography process is I first find the sim or setting that inspires me, then look for an outfit, along with the right pose, that will work with the surroundings. Sounds simple enough – although it can days for me to complete the image that I like enough to upload. By the way, since I am a returnee to Second Life, please let me know of sims, stores and pose shops I should be checking out.
Anywho, that is all I have to say for the moment but I shall return soon! So in the meantime – take care my friends and have a great Second Life!
I believe them bones are me. Some say we’re born into the grave.
I’ve been shambling all over SL in this skeleton avatar! A free gift from Linden Labs, you can grab this skeleton at the Portal Park. I recommend pairing it with RC Cluster’s new Zombie AO. It’ll give it a perfectly creepy effect.
Right now I’ve got two things for you. The first is this mask set I made for Halloween–grab this at my mainstore or on marketplace. These masks are hand-painted and very fun, and are only 100L for the pack.
It’s October! You know what that means, right? Halloween, pumpkins, and coffee made with pumpkin puree that might have squash mixed into it. (Pumpkin and squash are in the same family, so…yep.)
It’s my personal theory that squash is being mixed in Starbucks’ pumpkin spice lattes. But because they technically wouldn’t be lying by saying their drinks are made with 100% pumpkin, squash can definitely get in there if it means saving their company tons of cash. Besides–you’re drinking a vegetable in the latte anyway. It still tastes awesome. I’d still use pumpkin puree in my pies even after knowing what the puree is made of.
Would you drink pumpkin spice lattes if it were true that some squash were found in the drink?
