8 years and a month (or 2959 days)


Greetings Fellow SL Lovers!

So I missed my rez day back on December 2nd. I cannot even believe I could miss such an important day. I guess I’ve been way too busy. Anyway, I unearthed a picture that I thought I lost today. I was cleaning up my blog and I found it! I had done a collage of myself every year up to a certain point. So… I saved the picture and added 4 more years of pictures! Here it is!

Second Life has changed so much in 8 years and I am so excited to see where it goes from here!

Happy 7th Rez Day!


Greetings Fellow SL Lovers!
7 years today I first joined Second Life. I had no idea about all the adventures I’d have and people I’d meet. My life is drastically different from 7 years ago. Second Life is drastically different.

When I first started, flexi prims were a newer thing. My first dress was this blue dress with flexi prims that didn’t fit nearly well. After flexi prims came scupties. Scupties were beautiful, however, very stiff. There was no way to make the fabric look fluid. In the end, designers ended up doing a mix of flexi and scupty. After that came rigged mesh. Rigged mesh was a life saver! So revolutionary… it led to mesh clothing and body parts to be created. My favorite thing to come out of the mesh revolution was slink hands and feet. They were just miles above what the base feet and hands looked like. Now finally, we have fitted mesh. We have the mesh that came out able to now fit to your avatar’s current shape. Amazing considering we went from blocks to this!

What a difference 7 years makes, huh?

If I Die Young


Greetings Fellow SL Lovers!
So I came across Strawberry Singh’s blog today and she had her death meme up. Here is mine.

Do you ever think about dying? I do. I think about how I’d prefer to die and where I think I’d go.
How do you expect you’ll die? Hopefully peacefully in my sleep.
Do you believe in an afterlife? If so, how do you visualize it? I go back and forth on this. I do believe there is some place souls go after they die but after that I am conflicted.
What is your preferred form of apocalypse and why? Uhm… none? But if I had to choose I’d say the utopian route.
How many times have you cheated death so far? Once. I had food poisoning so bad I almost died.
Which fictional villain would you be okay being killed by? Damon from Vampire Diaies
If you’re murdered, do you stay and haunt the culprits forever or do you give up that opportunity to leave and go to heaven/hell/Cancun? I’d do all those. Preferably haunt my murderers until I receive justice then go to heaven/hell/wherever.
Will you have done everything you have wanted by the time you die? There is always so much to do.

If I Die Young

Doing this meme made me think of how Liliana would die. I always figured she’d die young. That made me think of The Band Perry song called If I Die Young. So there is my bed of roses and I am dressed in satin.

sink me in the river

If I die young,
bury me in satin.
Lay me down on a,
bed of roses.
Sink me in the river,
at dawn.
Send me away with the words of a love song.

My Obsession


Greetings Fellow SL Lovers!

Have you herd of Dead Dollz? Dead Dollz is a shop that makes premiere formal attire. At the Penumbra A/W Fashion week ’14, she had four cocktail dresses out and four floor length dresses out. They are all new and most of them have a color change option. What I mean by color change is there is a lacy part in most of the dresses. You can change the underneath skin tone to match your skin. So it isn’t like ‘ooh i want a purple dress so let me change it in the hud’ but rather ‘i am pasty white (or other tones) and want to make it match my skintone’. I love this dress! This one you completely change the skintone color on the entire dress. It is supposed to be a nude tone.

I just love how it gives the illusion of just being covered with the black lace. It is a very beautiful dress and anyone would look amazing in it!

Like my dress?

This beaut is from Dead Dollz. Where did I get it? There is an event called 24 squared and there are a limited number of this dress left. There is also a white version of this dress that is really pretty.

By the way… I love my new face shape. I squared the jaw a bit and it just looks amazing with my Nar Mattaru skin!

Where the heck have you been?!


Greetings Fellow SL Lovers!
I know my lovelies. I’ve been gone way too long. For that I blame real life. I’ve hit a financial problem and I’ve had no time whatsoever to get on Second Life. I still am in a situation but I have a little bit more time. I am still gonna try and post. I’d like to establish a publishing order of one blog post a week. Let’s just say Saturdays/Sundays. That way I can catch up and hopefully talk about something Second Life related which is fun and/or pretty. Not to mention I have to get back into the swing of blogging because Halloween will be coming up in two months. If you forget or are new to the blog, I blog one thing Sim/fashion/item Halloween related a day until Halloween. Until then, expect a one post a week.

This week, I want to show you me. I have been changing so much and actually changed my shape and face drastically. Snapshot
Do you like it? I need to get better at chin shaping. I like the current shape but I just wish I could have more of a stronger jaw.

Peaceful reading

Back in black… er… purple


Greetings Fellow SL Lovers!
Now that I am finally back from my SLcation, I had to check my mail. Sifting through the random notices and then a gem of a notice appeared. Today is Kiddo Oh’s rez day. Kiddo is now 7! Who is Kiddo? Kiddo Oh is the owner of Dead Dollz, my favorite formal dress creator. To commemorate her 7th rez day, she redid the Hasu gown in my favorite color… purple!

Royal Spring

I loved this dress in light blue and I just knew I had to have this dress in purple. Considering the purple version is only open to Dead Dollz VIPs and today, you better hurry.

Purple Spring

The jewlery from Lazuri rounded this look out nicely. This set is called Noor Mystic Infinity. It is a bit pricey but you get so many pieces. I know I will be using this set in many more outfits to come! Maybe even another Dead Dollz dress!

Do yourself a favor and get this dress and jewelry set… you won’t be sorry!
