memes


Berry’s meme for this week is all about Movie Posters, a theme she had done last year (which I don’t think I participated in) and a very cool one to do!

Of course I want to show off that I am a fan of really intelligent, difficult,  movies. Ya know Oscar material and nothing less….so after some binge-googling I found the perfect one for me and I think I  nailed it!

Life with Pies - Monday Meme

You can find all the information on this Challenge in Berry’s blogpost, and don’t forget to look at the comments in which you soon will find links to others as well!


Yesterday, while I was relaxing with my first glass of chilled wine of the week, I checked twitter and saw hilarious pictures of Draxtor Depres in all kinds of situations, wearing his OC Rift and being totally immersed.
A meme, as it goes, fast and growing, started by Loki Eliot and soon followed by many others – filling up my twitter with the most creative, funny images. Of course I could not resist in participating and placed an immersed Drax in Le Tour de France and in Amsterdam!

Two topics in one blogpost today!
I am a bit late to the Monday Meme party, but wanted to do it anyway as this weeks meme by Berry is all about questions and two answers (Double Threat meme here).
The pics in this blogpost I took at Retroville (adult), a vintage 1950’s themed city – or:  Hard Alley as it was in the 50’s. Very photogenic and..hey…they currently run a ‘Retroville Roleplay Picture Contest’, all information can be found here – so if you are into contests, roleplay and the 50’s, you may want to participate.
Retroville - I

Right, the meme! Here it comes….

Two online screen names you’ve had: Cato and Caitlin Tobias

Two video games you’ve played: I am not a gamer as such, but halfway the 90’s I had a Playstation (before I got a PC) and was a fanatic player of Tekken II and my favourite: Crash Bandicoot. While writing this down I can actually hear the music of Crash Bandicoot in my head…aww, good times.

Two things you love about Second Life: there is always something to do, be it exploring, shopping, clubbing, chatting with friends etc., and I love to dress up my avatar for pictures, be it regular fashion or fantasy.

Two things you’ve done in Second Life: I’ve run a clan of Samurai on our own sim, which I managed too and I have been an SL Mentor in the (now gone) official SL Mentor programme for some years – which I really enjoyed.

Two things you still want to do in Second Life: One day I will want to learn scripting and I want to learn how to make my own textures (for building/landscaping items).
Retroville - II

Two things you like about your Second Life avatar: I like Caity’s face & shape (made it myself over the years) and her colourful sense of dress.

Two of your Second Life Pet Peeves: People who keep standing on landingpoints of busy events (MOVE!) and talking body-parts.

Two things you did as a newb that you’re embarrassed of: Spending an evening (ok, maybe two) ‘playing’ in sex sims as Bukakke Bliss and Free Orgy Island…and following others in wearing oiled layers on my – to tanned/orange – skin, too large boobs to my liking, only because  I thought I would blend in easier and make friends.
I think the latter is the most embarrassing one, what was I thinking!?

Two of your closest friends in Second Life: I am not answering this one, I never answer questions when it comes to naming or listing friends.

Two of the most beloved things in your inventory: A folder with pictures of dear friends who, in some cases, have left SL or are no longer friends and Caity’s shape.
Retroville - IIIOhh..and now I had to look this up too…:


This weeks challenge from Strawberry Singh is quite the trip down memory lane and so much fun: first and recent!

Meme instructions: Share a side by side comparison of your first blog picture beside a recent picture of your avatar.
Don’t forget to share the link to your image in the comments and add your pictures to the Blog Memes flickr group.

After the great Hard Disk Crash in 2012, ya know..the one I had NO back-up from..ahem, I lost tons and tons of my pictures..I got over that loss, it happened. Oh and I do back-ups now too. Doh.
Anyway, luckily in 2007, when I was a young Caity, I had no idea you could save images to your Hard Disk anyway, so I have a lot of early pictures in my inventory! It took me a bit to find the oldest one, as I also wasn’t really good in renaming them – hence a folder filled with snapshots called : snapshot. Sigh.

I found my first profile portrait though, it is from November 2007, and I remember I was actually quite proud of my super looks and thought I looked amazing! Calico hair, and my first tattoo!
I am still wearing this shape, it’s tweaked over time, but it is still the ‘girl next door’ and if you look closely you see I was already modelling the face I have nowadays. Well I see it!
'When I was a young Caity...'  for Berry's Monday Challenge :)

 

A really great challenge, and don’t forget to have a look at all the other participants in the flickr-group!


After spending my days with decorating my home, today I was in the mood for participating in Strawberry’s Monday Meme, which is very cool this week: ‘Transform your avatar completely so that even your friends wouldn’t recognize you.‘  (You will find Berry’s meme here and don’t forget to check out the other participants in the comments!)

Well. Was that difficult? Hmm…no, but a challenge for sure, as I do switch looks a lot (elf, robot, fairy, clubber, ballroom etc) yet, indeed my avatar is always recognizable for my friends, so this challenge wasn’t about just an outfit but something completely different.

I let go of my white/pale skin (zOMG), detached my elf ears (ouch!) and even….yes….changed shape!

So here is me. Yes, it is me. Really!
Dream catcher - Avatar Transformation Challenge

Fun for a picture, and I actually kind of like this look, but I do not see myself changing permanently into this look, I am too attached to pale ol’ me.
