Weekend Vibes

Step into a charming little world within Second Life, where every accessory whispers a story of cuteness. The Anthology event is back, offering a collection of delightful items for you to discover. I’m holding the enchanting Explorer Cat Backpack by Aardvark, featuring an animated kitten that brings the backpack to life. Customize it with the included HUD that lets you pick different cats and accessories, and color the backpack to your liking.

Also awaiting you is the Ducklin’ Toseds cup from Comatosed, inspired by a popular real-world brand, complete with little fish that swim around inside. You can change the cup’s color and the type of fish swimming in it, all thanks to a customizable HUD.

Discover NeutralTones, a brand new to me, with their Special Friend Tshirt. It looks deceptively simple, but the detail is spot-on, from the realistic folds to the HUD that allows you to choose between two cute friends and a variety of shirt colors.

I <3 SL Skins – Elle's Noob Days continue….

Through-a-Screen-Door
Just an Irrelevant Pretty Picture

My return to Second Life has been, overall, uncomplicated. I logged in, got addicted to Linden Homes, and of course, I shopped. I have to say that I am a bit disappointed in the fashion choices in Second Life: So-Many-Outfits-Look-Exactly-The-Same. I spent many an hour visiting the latest events attempting to find that perfect new outfit. Alas, 75% of the time, my event shopping resulted in disappointment. I don’t know if it’s the demos the designers decide to use or if the efforts are just – bad. The pattern continues – I teleport to the current “Event Du Jour,” and an advert catches my eye. With the flick of my mouse, I would click that demo prim faster than you could say “Lindens.” Then, excitedly I would port home to one of my, err, seven Linden Homes and gleefully try the demo, and more often than not, the demo unveiling would reveal a horrible plastic-looking shirt with no depth or a skirt that was just..sad. But…not the Skin featured in the plethora of events: Oh My…Not the Skin.

Windows Ate My Pictures!

night out

 

Okay so…the other day I managed to take a whole batch of photos including the one you see here with Elle in her New Years Eve outfit she had been styling for weeks!  Well not exactly weeks, and maybe actually, just a couple of hours – but that’s beside the point, LOL.   But as luck would have it (or more than likely an ID10T error on Elle’s typist’s part) windows ate them all!  Elle was traumatized and so beside herself, she just couldn’t push herself to try to take the photo again.  Oddly enough, one was still in my recently viewed cached items, although, the file itself was gone!  So what’s a disappointed and lazy fashion blogger to do?  Use Snipit and take a photo of a photo woot!

Anyway, I had tons of fun with this photo – from styling Elle to building the little set.  There are so many wonderful little knickknacks in SL now that I think building sets might be a thing for me going forward.  Details on the items used in this photo along with Elle’s outfit can be found below. For now…I am out peeps – so in the meantime, take care my friends and have a great Second Life!
