Naked to Nothing More Than Who We Are

FG17_008

 

For today’s post, I decided to take on one of Strawberry Singh’s #SecondLifeChallenges.  I’ve been in a somewhat reflective mood since my grand grandmother passed away about a week ago and I thought this might be a good way to ponder life and get back into blogging more. If you’d like to participate too, here’s the link to Strawberry’s post with all of the details.

First a word about today’s picture. The image for this post is my Fallen Gods Inc. 2017 Gods and Goddesses Photo Contest entry, the skin being the participation prize from last’s years photo contest. My love for this look is only surpassed by my surprise and awe at the luck I had in getting this shot. Go check out all the other pretty pictures in the temple here!

Now on to the challenge… Seven facts about my SecondLife avatar or SecondLife that may not be obvious to any of you, my lovely readers.

  1. I really can not stand sl voice. Besides the fact that I despise my own voice, it seems that people who use mic tend to forget to keep people who type included in the conversation. That and the quality of mic sound in sl varies by person AND I am hearing impaired. So, I dislike sl voice immensely.
  2. I have had two sl partnerships in my four years and four months on sl. Both of which lasted over the average of four months for sl relationships. The longer of the two relationships lasted two years.
  3. I am seldom without my jerboa tail. The only time I take it off is for blog posts at times or for roleplay. For a short time I was never without wings but I always return to neko.
  4. I have only roleplayed in Game of Thrones sims. The few sims I have roleplayed on have been places my sl parents roleplayed at for Game of Thrones because I don’t like to roleplay in sims I don’t anyone and because I only wanted to roleplay Game of Thrones.
  5. My first and only mesh head is my current one, the LeLutka Bento Simone, courtesy of the fabulous Sophia Harlow.
  6. I really don’t like changing my shape and skin. It throws me off. I only do so for roleplay characters or artistic photos. I’ll change my hair frequently but not my skin or shape.
  7. I have absolutely no idea how to landscape or edit terrain in sl. Zero. I’ve never owned land where I could experiment with it.

My Immortal: Gifts for the Elven Forest Hunt

It’s December. It’s cold. Unless you’re in Secondlife where it can be summer all year. If you’re not in the mood for all the traditional winter hunts and festivities going on this time of year (or simply like fairies, magic, and/or spring), the Elven Forest Hunt is just right for you! This round of Fi’s Hunts is inspired by elves, fairies, and nature and I’ll be sharing a bit about some of the goodies on the hunt path.

One of my favorite pieces from the hunt so far is an outfit from Mishmash Fusion. In the couples picture, I’m wearing the outfit which comes in standard sizes and includes a circlet and foot jewelry for slink high feet. I think the main reason I love it so much is the subtlety of the colors and textures. Other than my boobs, which frankly I’ve always had to smoosh into tops lol, I had no trouble fitting the skirt and top to my mesh body. This is another well done and fun outfit from Mishmash Fusion. 🙂

Another of the outfits offered as a gift is a cute fairy dress with wings from Fi’s Creations. I could not wait to get my hands on this little dress as it reminds me of fairies I’ve seen in children’s films. The wings are included though you may have to attach them to your spine and rotate them in build mode to look correct. Paired with the right jewelry and hair, you’ll be flitting about with a touch of magic. The sparkles on my feet and hands are from a Gacha at =EC Designs=. Try your luck for one of the many pretty colors or you can snag the fatpack and have them all.

My third outfit features pieces from different places. The corset from WICKED is mesh and has a Hud with six texture variations for the bust and ribcage. I love the detail and that the back actually looks like someone had to tie it. My headpiece is from Acios and Redrose Jewellry designed the cute fairy choker. Any of these pieces would look cute with simple day wear or as Roleplay accessories. In all of my looks, I’m wearing nail polish from [Rad Designs]. Five enchanting patterns on Slink and Belleza appliers, will have your fingers looking charmed.

Other items from this hunt are seen in multiple photos. The tree lantern is from Magnum Opus and is only 1 prim! Perfect for lighting up enchanted forests. A small twig setup with a fireflies lantern from HJM Designz would make an adorable addition to a hidden sanctuary. In the background, you can see a gray statue with blue flora from Darkmatter that could be a great focal point for secret garden. {Sickly SWEET} created the bench I’m sitting on. Several singles poses allow the user ample choices for admiring their surroundings.

From Tipsters there’s a beautifully crafted fairy tip jar. Is that blue ball of flame going to be used for good or bad? You’ll have to find out. But I would think it’s a good thing since my dragon buddies from =EC Designs= Gacha don’t appear to be afraid of her. Dragon Buddies come in both a rezzable follower or a hover version. The fatpack is also available for those who want them all. Oh, and did I mention they talk when clicked? Each Dragon Buddy has a few unique phrases that give them their own personality.
