In my last post I alluded to trying out some new things this coming year in SL and one of those things is having a son! Well, I have a son in RL and he has long been interested in SL and quite the lil gamer himself, so I made him an account so that he and I could experience SL together! There are a few things I have in mind for him, and I won’t share those things just yet as I am not sure how many of them will materialize, but if they do, my son and I are going to be cracking up quite a bit. He really is my lil sidekick and I love him to bits. Made sense to me to share Second Life with him where we could have even more fun!
Since I was all excited about my Bento makeover I was just as excited to make my son a cool looking, age-appropriate avatar! I admit I was kinda scratching my head on this one as there sure are a lot of toddler avatars and toddler fashion, but no where near the same offerings for more teenaged looking avatars. Knowing how much Trouble Dethly of PENUMBRA/Eclipse & Spotlight (such a busy guy!) supports the toddler community in SL, I figured he was the right guy to reach out to (not to mention he is super cool and my bro) and I was right! He connected me with Kenzie Thomas Numbers (mckenzieky) of MESHMERIZED and that is all it took! My son’s avatar is perfect and he has some fun kid appropriate clothing. My son’s skin and shape are from MESHMERIZED as well as his cute lil lip tattoo. In this photo, I wanted him to dress up and not clash with Mommy’s outfit so I took him over to ISON and got him a few things including the Scoopneck Sweater he is wearing. His hair is Boys & Girls 27 from Dura.
Once my son’s avatar was ready and I handed it over to my son to play with, I asked him if he might want to model like mommy and he was like “YEAH!” Next step, launching my son’s teen modeling career!
Thanks for reading! Oh, and in case you are wondering what I am wearing, I pulled out some oldies but goodies from my inventory! I am wearing a Truth Hair called Soliel from 2013 and a Valentina E Floral Bohemian Coat from 2015! I am also wearing Kunglers Lakshmi Necklace and Jeune by Rowne Emeline Leather Jumpsuit. The pose is by KaTink and called “Besties for Life” (so true) and the photo was shot on the KaTink sim.
And now for a song my son and I love clapping to:
