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!

LOVE my new Bento hands by Vista Animations!

Hello Readers!

I love blogging for friends. Today’s ensemble is another from the upcoming Femininity Expressed in Wings show by The Fantasy Angels Company, but it is created by my dear friend Lyrical Bizarre. Her outfits always seem to have movement to them and I certainly get the ‘lyrical’ in her name.  Then there is my pose. Most models have exhausted all the well known, well made pose makers (I know I have) but now there is another! My good friend and amazing model Linda Reddevil has opened her own pose store!  I of course teleported over there as fast as SL would go and bought up every single set. I am in one of her poses in this shot and I am sure you will be seeing a lot more of Devilish Poses in my posts!
