Cupid

Cupid

Valentine’s Day festivities in Second Life are a joy, regardless of your virtual relationship status. As someone who’s happily hitched in the non-digital world, I’ve always roamed through this virtual landscape solo. Honestly, it’s never been an issue for me; I adore getting into the holiday spirit and dressing up for the occasion.

My exploration last year took me to the delightful Dunk & Hug a Linden & Mole Event, a first for me, and it was incredibly fun. Donned as a charming Victorian lady, I had such a wonderful time that I’m tempted to revive that persona for this year’s celebration. The allure of that period’s romantic charm is simply irresistible to me.

Glam Affair Skin

Left: Glam Affair Skin – Feoui | Right: with BoM tattoos added

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.

Sweet Dreams

Sweet Dreams

Hello from Fantasy, the latest Linden Homes theme. This theme is lit, LOL. Everything glows here, and it’s easy to see why it can be too intense for most people. If you want something “not suburban” then this theme is for you.

I didn’t plan on getting a Fantasy home, but I will probably keep one for a while and see how it goes. The interior of the homes is quite nice, with big windows and spacious rooms. If you want to live together with your friends, it’s easy to do so here, cos entire regions will release together. NOW IS THE TIME TO GET A FANTASY HOME.
