New Year, New Me

Hello Readers!

It has been quite some time. I am sure you have seen blogs go from active to inactive and anywhere in between. I was never a truly prolific blogger, I don’t always have something to say or anything newsworthy to share. I am just a resident enjoying her SecondLife and who happens to like to blog about it sometimes. I recently celebrated my Rez Day…9 years in SL! I wanted to do a post, but the stars did not align right for that. I have spent half of my 9 years in SL exploring and learning how to role play, then I spent the second half of those 9 years breaking into the SL modeling scene. I am very comfortable with both and enjoy both sides of my SL to this day. I do feel the familiar urge to do something new with my SL, perhaps I get that urge every 4 years or so…who knows.

What has captured my interest of late is all chatter about Bento. If you don’t know what I am talking about you will have to visit Strawberry Singh’s blog because as always, she does an excellent job explaining things. Between her and Wicca Merlin, I got a crash course in Bento. As a model in SL your brand is important. Your uniqueness is your brand, which includes your face. It was this line of thinking that kept me from getting on the mesh head bandwagon. There was little way to modify them beyond skin and I just couldn’t accept that as me. I was very impressed with my fellow models who were able to work skins and layers to their advantage and make their own unique face, but I still figured anything I would do would still not give me my own unique face so I held off.

Now that Bento has arrived and I watched my dear friend Wicca (my mesh head queen) work various heads (Bento and not) and share her experiences with me. I felt confident after a few conversations and screen shares with Wicca to dive in and give making my own unique face with a Bento head a go. I was so excited to use a Bento head that I went for the Bento hands too! Both were just the refresh I needed. While I love my avatar, I knew it was time to give her a make over, which can be both time consuming and frustrating. Not this time! I have a new Bento me now and am very pleased with the results. Just like when I finally found Silly’s face (that she has had for 3ish years), I felt that same feeling once I had the right skin on and had tweaked the sliders to my liking. I know this is likely not the final look for the new Bento Silly, but I am very pleased with her beginnings!

I love that I can smile now! I smile so much in RL and I am called Silly for a reason in SL so there is bound to be smiles and laughing when I am around!

I have some other things in mind for my SL in 2017, and I hope to be back with another post soon to talk all about that!

Thanks for continuing to read!

Falling into a Burrito

Falling into Bed

Hello Readers!

I have been a busy bee in and out of SL. Life is good, no complaints here, though I do miss blogging regularly. Today I had one of those blogging opportunities and had to capitalize on it. With all the activity in my lives right now, it is a challenge to get those quiet times where I can just be creative…those are times I need in order to style and blog with any decency at all. After a morning of some styling I scratched my creative itch. Sadly it wasn’t for anything I could share on my blog, as it was a casting styling, but trust me if I am not selected I will show everyone! At the tail end of the process I had one of my newest friends in SL come into my ims. I have to say that after 8 years in SL I am always pleased when I can make new friends. This particular friend is a pose maker. I had just bought ALL his poses before meeting him (thanks Miele Tarantal)  and once we had met we hit it off like we had been pals for years. I love when that happens. In our initial conversation, after I had fangirled all over his ims praising his poses and witty names of them (I love clever people), Chance Greatrix of DARE poses promised me his next pose sets on the house. I was thrilled, but I would never expect him to really do that. Not that he is dishonest in anyway, but I don’t mind paying for quality items in SL. I have had many fun conversations with Chance since that initial chat, so I thought there would be more fun banter when he came into my ims today…but instead there were gifts! Chance has two new pose sets out…Flowy and Face Hands. So here I am in Flowy 5, falling fashionably into bed! Thanks Chance! I hope your poses are already set up in your store because I am telling folks about them!

Here is an example of why Chance’s poses crack me up. I have seen A LOT of poses in my time, but never one called “Imma Burrito!” LOL!

I Want to Hear You Calling My Name

FAD 3_3_001pm

Hello Readers!

I am still in a FRO-TASTIC mood (see this image to see what I mean in case you have no clue what I am talking about) so here I am in a fro the lovely Mecca (apocketfulofbutterflies) reminded me I have always wanted to purchase, Rhythm by Puft. The 3rd round of the FAD Fashion Event is still going so I slipped into this fun romper by LEGENDAIRE called the Lucy Jumpsuit.

FAD 3_3_002pm

It doesn’t come in mesh body sizes, but the standard mesh sizes work well and it has a HUD! I do love HUDs and the increased options they provide. It was so hard to choose between the textures! In the end I chose this one because of the cute lil birdy…it made me think of Twitter! I coupled it with the Raven jewelry from Modern Couture.

FAD 3_3_003pm

The Lucy Jumpsuit has coordinating heels, aptly named the Lucy heels. There was no HUD for these, but look at them, love the straps! Oh and do notice my finely polished nails, those are courtesy of PUMBY who has an awesome assortment of brightly colored polishes for Slink and Maitreya perfectly matched to the theme of Tropical Nights.

Berry’s SL Yearbook Smile Challenge

Hello Readers!

My winter break is just about up, and I am not too excited about that. Then along comes Berry with a fun new challenge! I have really been enjoying the images in the Flickr group and was inspired to do my own, especially when Berry mentioned PicMonkey…O – M – G!  That site has given me what I have been looking for for a long time and I know I have heard about it before but never bothered to go look…a TOTAL fail on my part!  Here is my addition to all the fun SL Yearbook photos:

Last Day At the Beach

Hello Readers!

I am sad to say my summer break is quickly coming to an end.  After an exciting whirlwind of summer shows with Siren & SCALA’s Month of Games and the uniquely different Art in Hats, I am enjoying going through all the new fashion goodness with Opium’s upcoming Hunger Games Tribute as well as all the creativity and quality of the designers I blog for.

Today’s look was inspired by Datrip’s latest creation for Legal Insanity.  It was very appropriately a swimsuit and I knew my alter ego Sileena (who is so cute thanks to 7 Deadly S{k}ins) would look adorable in it in one of Izara’s new skin creations.  My blog post wouldn’t be complete without a lil KaTink and as always Marit and Maliah never fail with their backdrops and poses!

While part of me is sad all of this wondrous summer free time will come to an end next week, I look forward to the regularity a work schedule brings, as well as getting to work with my new class of students! I have been an educator for a number of years and the summertime is always something I look forward to for the chance to rest and recharge.
