Buddha Garden

Buddha Garden

Hello from the serene Buddha Garden! I discovered this gem through the Destination Guide, an excellent resource for finding picturesque spots and experimenting with EEP settings.

I was pleasantly surprised by how tranquil and well-designed this homestead region is. They’ve kept things simple due to prim limitations, but this simplicity enhances its charm. As a long-time admirer of Second Life water, being surrounded by it here is a dream come true.

The default EEP settings in this region were quite dark, so I created a new one specifically for my photos. Interestingly, I didn’t plan on making an EEP or shooting a short video, but I was inspired to capture the stunning new Second Life skies in a PBR viewer.

Adjusting to PBR has been a challenge, but I’m coping better by fully embracing the PBR viewer. By doing so, I avoid making constant comparisons with the old viewer’s water. Surprisingly, I’m starting to miss the beautiful pre-PBR water a little less each day.

Sometimes, diving in headfirst is the best approach to adapt to a drastic change.

My photos are straight from Second Life with very minimal edits—just a bit of blurring and cropping.

Drug Town, RSCM38

Drug Town, RSCM38

I recently visited RSCM38, a unique region in Second Life known for its moody atmosphere of crime and poppy fields. I found myself mesmerized by the poppy field and even spotted some mysterious figures lurking in the hills. The area is beautifully crafted, featuring vibrant, colorful streets and plenty of places to grab a bite. You can wander around this place for days, and it makes a fantastic setting for photo shoots.

The vibe here really reminds me of Cuba, from the colorful buildings and vintage cars to the scenic beaches. It’s a spectacular spot that’s definitely worth a visit!

Cozy Spaces

Cozy Spaces

Happy Sunday! There’s something incredibly charming about smaller spaces— they radiate coziness, and it’s quite simple to create a full, inviting room with just a few pieces. With the help of my friend, Fay Starlight, we’ve assembled three delightful rooms using furniture and decor from the latest Anthology releases.

Cozy Spaces
Bazar – Kay Bedroom

The bedroom we designed showcases the Kay bedroom set by Bazar, which offers a complete suite for crafting a comfortable space. It includes a bed with an array of textures at your fingertips, as well as a classic fireplace that brings a slice of warmth and realism to the setting.

Cozy Spaces

Moving over to the living room, we selected items from Blue Sky, another gem found at Anthology. The Alpaca armchairs and ottoman by Blue Sky add a touch of whimsy with their delightful fuzzy texture. The centerpiece here is the splendid Blue Sky Cusco Console, complemented by an elegant Gold Leaf Abstract artwork, versatile enough to harmonize with decor accessories from various home and garden creators.

Wings hair from the 11.11 sale!

In China, November 11 is celebrated as Singles’ Day, originally a celebration for single people that has transformed into a major online retail event. Chinese consumers take advantage of discounts and promotions, making it the world’s largest shopping festival. Singles’ Day has expanded globally, showcasing the power of e-commerce.

For the past few years, Second Life brands have promoted 11/11 as a shopping event offering discounts to residents. It’s an opportunity for brands to capture the consumer spending market before the glut of Black Friday sales. This year, some of my favorite brands are participating in 11/11, so I took advantage of the discount to stock up on items I didn’t already own.

I was at Toksik to see if there was anything I wanted that I didn’t already own, but unfortunately, I already owned everything I wanted. Then my friend Sasy said, “You need to go to Wings… beautiful hair!” so I went and bought some hairstyles that I didn’t already own. I picked up six new hairstyles from Wings, with prices ranging from L$150-L$160 per hair color pack.

Pepe Skins – Mocha

Left: Pepe Skins – Mocha skin | Right: with tattoo layers

Whenever I see a Second Life skin advertisement, I always think, “But does it really look like that?” I stumbled upon Pepe Skins recently and after trying on a dozen or so faces, I selected one that I thought looked very sweet and definitely something I could wear.

I’m wearing the Mocha skin from Pepe Skins here, along with the body skin. The skin is created for LeLutka EvoX, and includes Brows or No brows available in just one color. This skin brand doesn’t offer much with the skin, unlike other brands where you can get at least a few brow colors and some makeup. I found the neck shading too heavy/reddish tone and overall the body skin is just grainy but I chose to wear it here cos I couldn’t make it work with my usual body skin and neck fade layers. But overall, the faces on Pepe Skins are all very pretty. They also participate in weekend sales so you can get a cheap skin to try out!

Glam Affair Skin

The new Feoui skin from Glam Affair Skin is one of the cleanest skin I’ve ever seen from the brand, it comes without heavy shading on the face (especially Glam’s signature one side of the nose is more shaded than the other side). I’m not a fan of that, but I get why some skin designers are doing it to give the face more depth or simulate shadows, but it’s so awkward in normal lighting. When I tried on this Feoui skin, I was pleasantly surprised it’s so clean! I still ended up adding a bunch of BoM layers to the face to remove blush, change eyelids, and and few touches to make it more Gogo.

Voguel Skin

Sweet

Are you into hyper-realistic skins in Second Life? I normally wear smooth skins without imperfections, but then I visited Voguel and found a new skin that’s just adorable, even with pores and freckles! The imperfections really adds character, and it’s not too much, it’s still very soft and pretty. I’m wearing the Voguel Mia skin in Chantilly 2 skin tone. This tone matches well with a Pink Fuel body skin, or you can wear Velour (but I have not found a Velour skin tone that I like yet).
