A couple of weeks ago we wrote about Perspectives and how each of us can have such a different view even when looking at the same things. I’ve done a couple of shots and posts on my own since that one and while I was happy with the way they turned out, neither has really hit that spot. You know the one that just feels right? Portia and I sat down the other night, to once again try out our perspectives on a photo. Same pose, place, and styling, but completely different shots.
Have you ever taken a break from Second Life? What was it like coming back after whatever amount time you were away? Portia and I took about a month and a half away because of real life changes and the new WoW expansion launching. The WoW thing being more my side of things as I had to get ready for more raiding. She’s been taking care of her lovely nephews most of the week and I’ve quite enjoyed the Skype time I’ve gotten with those little guys. Truly awesome to see the interaction that a one year old can have with you even from that far away.
These shoes. Man oh man, do I love these shoes. Growing up, the Nike Air Force 1 was the shoe to have. Especially the all whites. I would say it still holds true today because I see them around quite often. Read on to find out where you can find my new favorite casual shoes.
I remember having a really nice sculpted pair from [hoorenbeek] in my earlier Second Life days. I still have them actually, refusing to retire them until I could find a more up to date pair that really called to me. That time has arrived. [ VERSOV ] released an amazing collection of Air Force 1 lookalikes called the JUMPOV. They are absolutely unbelievably amazing. They’re available in 13, yes THIRTEEN color options. Each includes a HUD to change the metal texture on the lace slide to one of three options. To top it all off you get fitted versions for Slink Male and Female flat feet, Aesthetic feet, TMP male and female, Maitreya flat feet, and of course Classic avatar feet. All for $249 or the fatpack for L$1700. They are worth every single cent if you ask me. Head over to TMD and try the demo! Continue reading
“Men are like wine – some turn to vinegar, but the best improve with age.”
It’s February 20th and that means another round of Men Only Monthly is here. I was extremely intrigued when I saw that [Deadwool] was at this month’s round. As I’m sure you have noticed I am very big fan of Masa Plympton’s work. So much so that I find myself thinking of wearing a suit pretty much every other, if not every day of the week. If you remember back at the beginning of the month we got the Peak Suit (wool) at Monsieur Chic. I loved it then and I love it now. The optimization for the Slink Physique and options with the HUD made it a must have in my opinion. The Peak Suit (Tux) is just as beautiful. It has a classy rich feel to it, accented by a simple bow tie. We’ve got four colors (black, blue, ivory, and wine) to choose from, as well as the fatpack. Continue reading
It’s been almost two weeks since I’ve done a post! I’ve really been a bad blogger lately and for that I apologize. This post will probably end up being a lot more words then pictures but I think it’s one I’ve really needed to do. Probably should have done it years ago honestly. Story time my friends…
WOW. It is officially the fifth of the month, which means another round of The Men’s Dept has started. It’s one of the few men’s events on the grid these days. It’s understandable as we’re outnumbered by quite a bit. It has grown to include more unisex items as time has gone by but I look forward to it each month.
Okay, so first of all I have one thing to say:
“YOU GUYS ARE IN BIG TROUBLE.”
Much like the last session, this round of The Fantasy Gacha is set on the Acerbus Silva sim and holy wow, there are a LOT of machines to tap. Just like last time, I went a little bit crazy in the first section, forgetting that there were still dozens of gacha machines tucked away in other parts of the event area. To help -you- avoid prematurely blowing through all of your lindens, however, I have decided to provide this map to show you just how massive the place is:
Bear in mind that the tiiiiny red tent at the lower left-hand corner of the picture is the landing point. You’ll cross the bridge into the first group of gacha machines and then proceed straight ahead or to your left. Do not forget that there are many, many vendors in each area, though! Pace yourself and remember that you can always come back later for another round. Breathe. You’ll get through this. Continue reading
Can you believe that it’s been nearly four months since my last post?
I really can’t, honestly, but I suppose the fact that it took me five minutes and umpteen attempts to access my wordpress account can attest to the dry spell. I’ve missed blogging, missed sharing my thoughts and some of the many outfits I put together throughout my time in Second Life. No doubt some of you know that it’s been a busy time for me; my nephew is HUGE now (proud auntie pictures on my flickr page) and nearly seven months old! I’ve moved from my tiny apartment to a much-less-tiny townhouse across town and I’m loving all the extra space (and a computer in my bedroom, thank you very much!). With Thanksgiving approaching, I’m looking forward to cooking a massive meal for my family and having enough actual counter space to do it. Do you remember my post about Awesome Breed Creations (ABC) Horses? I’m working for them now as their official Clerk of Course, which means practically nothing to you, I’m sure, but it’s a marvelous honour. If you’re interested in racing horses in SL (or waiting for jousting events to begin like the rest of us), you should come check us out sometime. 🙂
Okay, okay. “ENOUGH!” you say. Shall we talk about clothes?
Our favourite cobbler Gos made his first official donation to the PDSA this week! The total was a staggering £1553.14 (around $2364), all earmarked to care for the pets of people in need by providing free veterinary services to their sick and injured animals as well as to promote responsible pet ownership.
You can read the full details on the Gos Boutique Blog and pleasepleasePLEASE visit the shop in-world to try these amazing shoes for an important cause. If you aren’t able to buy a pair of shoes (or maybe you already have all of them 😉 ) there are donation boxes throughout the store. Continue reading
