Paper Crown


On 23rd July, Huckleberry Hax passed the Paper Crown on to me and to be honest I was not sure if I would be able to do the Crown justice. Specially after seeing pics of previous Kings and Queens and Huck’s way in particular – he wrote a poem, a story, that made me want to see his next line every day.

I felt honoured, of course, and found a way to incorporate the Crown in my images – not so much in my regular Second Life, but it was only for a month and a wonderful journey! Those of you following my Flickr have seen I did a daily picture, depicting a song about Queen or King. OK, I have missed a few days – due to Real Life obligations – but in the end I have made 30 images, 28 of them accompanied by a song of music piece. (The two pics missing a song are one from the Passing of the Crown and one of me partying on my Rezzday)

I’ve created a playlist, in order of publication on Flickr, of all the songs – mostly for myself, but I thought I would share it anyway:

Playlist [Paper Crown] August 2017 – Caitlin Tobias
(yes, the playlist contains 27 songs – instead of 28 – since one of them “Queen of Peace by Florence and the Machine is not available on YouTube, I have used a link to Vevo)

And also, this image is a link to my album on Flickr with all the pictures:

Tomorrow I will pass the Paper Crown on to the next King or Queen, who that is…just watch Flickr and you will find out!

For now, I will post the last work of my reign and will return to a Second Life as a civilian again. I am looking forward to that too!

Cheers to A New King/Queen!

It is a lot of fun to come up with pictures for my Paper Crown series, and everyday I am looking forward to think of something.

The past week though I have been too busy in Real Life and have not had the time to log in, so there is a bit of a gap in my series.

The best reason of all is, I have a big heart…and a big house…and there was room in my heart for another love. Which I found in a most gorgeous, precious girl who now lives with us.

Her name is Poppy and she is 8 weeks old:

You know what is better than a Jack Russell Terrier? TWO Jack Russell Terriers!

Chuck is still getting used to his new baby sister, things are hectic, noisy, messy and time is needed to get it all working out well – but I have confidence that they will be best buddies at some point.

Two Jacks and a Queen. Happiness!

 


Last night King Huckleberry Hax,  who has reigned the past month as Paper Crown King, passed on the crown to me. OMG. I am a Queen now!

The ceremony of the Passing of the Paper Crown was in a small setting, rather intimate and sweet. Well, OK. Huck showed up with music, wearing a (fullbright, flexy prim!) cloak and it took him quite a while to finally hand over the crown to me, including a speech with lots of  bigly and important words. It was a very special night!

Many thanks to Kate Bergdorf, Mich Michaboo and Huck, for trusting me with the Paper Crown for a month and welcoming me as the Queen!

The coming month, during my reign, all my images on my Flickr feed must include and show the Paper Crown, a very fun challenge! I hope you will enjoy my photos, I’ve posted two sofar, and recommend you take a look at Huck’s story  – as he did an amazing job!
