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.Continue reading
Way back in the day, when the platform was new and some of you reading this weren’t born yet, Second Life residents could purchase a Lifetime account for $159.95 (later raised to $225) that offered them 4096 sqm of free land tier along with a generous L$500 weekly stipend.
Ever since I became a Premium member in 2019 to get a Linden Home, I’ve been asking Second Life to bring back Lifetime accounts. Well, it looks like my pleas have finally been heard because Patch Linden referred to it during the SL20B Opening Ceremony! We don’t have all of the details yet, but based on Patch’s speech and the SL20B Global Sweepstakes Grand Prize being a SecondLifetime Premium Subscription, this is a clear signal that Second Life is bringing back an updated version of the Lifetime account and calling it SecondLifetime Premium.
Here’s the live stream where Patch refers to Lifetime accounts:
“…with our premium perks, we need to bottle Second Life sunshine and sell it as an anti-aging serum… hmm… lifetime… lifetime… premium… lifetime… those words just seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly. I think I’m having an idea, perhaps something to discuss further at my Lab Gab session with Strawberry Linden, starting Monday, June 26th at 1:30 p.m. SLT.”Patch Linden

I was not expecting to try another mesh head so soon after Ubon, but I could not resist trying on this LeLutka Vivian head at Skin Fair. This event opens on March 10th, but you can join the Juniper Events group to gain early access. I’m a blogger, so I gained entry through SL Bloggerati and was able to go a little earlier for the media preview. I really appreciate when events have early access groups for people that aren’t official bloggers. More events and brands should utilize media preview groups to get even more coverage.Continue reading
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!
