Naked to Nothing More Than Who We Are

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.

She’s a Flame: Autumn’s at Uber

As I’ve said before, Autumn or fall is my favorite season. I took a look through Uber a few days ago and saw a few things that sparked my interest due to this month’s theme.

First off the hair was something I saw in another blog by Deebles called Like butter wouldn’t melt in my mouth. Once I saw the picture, I had to grab the hair. I just love little foxes and the hat on this hair by TRUTH is darling. Besides the various hair colors, Foxy comes with an accessory hud that enables the user to switch between multiple colors of the fox hat. Additionally, if you find yourself to be a bit more well endowed in the bust department, there’s two included versions for bustier ladies. Duplicate versions without the hat are also included.

My loving sl husband came with me while I was shopping and he saw me drooling over this sweater by erratic with the Eiffel Tower on the front in a cute knit pattern. So he bought it for me. :3 So shoutout to him for spoiling me. ❤ I absolutely love how well made it is and the fit is purrfect! Please note, this top is made exclusively for the Maitreya Lara body. There’s a nice variety of colors and prints to choose from if La Tour d’Eiffel is not your thing.

The knit leggings by .miss chelsea. I’m wearing look really nice and detailed. A variety of colors and patterns inspired by the season are available; you can buy them separately, in basic packs of four color/patterns, or all of them in the fatpack. Included are fits for many of the main mesh body types such as Maitreya, all Belleza bodies, Slink, and the TMP body. What I didn’t realize but found to be ingenious is that the pants come with an alpha hud that lets you hide a few different lengths of the pant leg. Very helpful for wearing boots.

I’m not normally the type of person to buy skins, but I took a gamble and tried the Glam Affair demos for the skins at Uber. They looked really pretty and the price really is a bargain for all the options each skin comes with. The one I ended up getting is Caroline – Exotic. One skin comes with multiple brow and makeup options. The plus for Maitreya loving ladies is that we don’t need appliers (unless you’re using slink hands/feet that is).

After such a shopping excursion I had to sit down. One place I can’t seem to explore enough is the City of Serenity, owned by a few builder friends I know. Their bright city has a few shops, a bar, a shooting range, ballroom, and lots more. Come explore when you can after you check out this month’s Uber. 🙂
