More than one can Bear…..


Bears. Big, hairy bears. They are taking over the grid, since LL has released a huge, mesh, bear-avatar on the Marketplace as a festive, commemorative avatar – for FREE! You will encounter them the coming weeks…..! Of course I had to get one too, if only out of curiosity and since this bear is also…

Scribbled Hearts


It has been a very strange and hectic time lately, due to all kind of RL events that kept me busy and distracted me too much to do some proper exploring – let alone blogging! Hence, I have neglected my poor blog…..But, I am getting back into the wonders of the Virtual World of Second…

Firestorm, Flickr and Dopiaza


And now for something completely different…..a blogpost about Firestorm, Flickr and Dopiaza and how I combined all three to make publishing snapshots easy and organised in one  click. Well, once it is set up that is…but it is not that hard! Since the latest release of Firestorm it is now possible to publish your snapshots…

Expecto – Mischief Managed RP


Last night Sy and I went to visit Expecto – Mischief Managed RP, a new sim with a wonderful castle that caught my attention in some posts and pics last week. It was as amazing as I had hoped and it is windlight, shadow and photographer’s heaven! Although the land description, nor any other sign,…

The Guardian


This morning I went back to the Fairy Tales, a great ‘event’ where several designers are showing off their creations all in the Fairy Tales theme. Skins, clothes, hair….amazing designs! I fell for the ‘Guardian’ outfit by [Sakide], which consists of a mesh corset (in 7 sizes), sculpted parts and the normal clothing layers, making…

LEA 15 – Invisible Cities


Saturdaynight Sy and I visited the LEA 15 sim, currently featuring several art installations with as central theme ‘Invisible Cities’.  One of my favourite is the city created by Rebeca Bashly. On the arrival point you can grab a ‘gondolina’ to wear and to use to ‘sail’ through the greenish canals of what seems like…

Chouchou – Memento Mori


This morning I finally found my way to the Cathedral on Chouchou, thanks to Sy who went exploring and was obviously more patient in finding out the teleporters! The groundlevel of Chouchou is photogenic as well, but the Cathedral in the sky is amazing! You can pick up a free cinematic HUD, which really enhances…

Solaria


This evening I ended up in a lovely Italian town, Solaria. It’s with good reason this beautiful place is listed in the Destination Guide under: photogenic spots! It is the perfect location to play with shadows and windlightsettings, but mostly it is just a very lovely place with lots of amazing details! You can sit…

LEA20 – Oberon Onmura’s “Wave Fields”


Being all drugged up in a final attempt to win the battle against my flu, I went to visit the “Wave Fields” by Oberon Onmura on one of the LEA sims. The description by the artist: ‘an ever-changing landscape of cubes that create undulating waves of visual movement as they form, activate, and disintegrate’, pretty…

Kuru Kuru World – by Mikati Slade


Boxing Day and I woke up this morning , exploring an amazing art installation on MiC – Kuru Kuru World by Mikati Slade. As the short decription says: a future Pop Art Exhibition. It is bright, it is pink, it moves and it is absolutely worth a visit! I have used the advised windlightsetting [TOR]…
