Spring Clean My Inventory

Spring Clean My Inventory

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.

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.

Goodbye Aurelias


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!

AI Art and Second Life

AI images
Images & seamless textures that I generated with AI

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.

SL snapshot vs Stable Diffusion edit

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.

Second Life New Mobile App – Exclusively for Apple iOS!

Second Life Mobile App
New SL Mobile App for Apple iOS Devices

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!”

Happy Sunday! I remembered that I bought this beautiful Maitane (Pitaya) dress from Belle Epoque a while ago, and it was perfect for the coastal region of Quash – Mediterranee. The sleeves are so fluffy and big on this dress, making it a real statement piece!
