Golden Evening and a God Slightly Out Of Place (and enjoying it.)

So, trawling through the Second Life tag recently, I came across a location feature by Jeff Goodnight on Goodnight Photography. I’m always looking for pretty new places to stand around and look at strangers and their fun builds, so I was more than a little excited to read about Indie Heights.

My wife’s indie. ish. Sorta. We joke about her being a hipster, but she’s like, pre-hipster. Left of hipster, up the stairs, and on the balcony of the second floor. She likes the music and sometimes the clothes and we both sure as hell love the little niche coffee shops that serve awesome smoothies and banana chocolate chip muffins. But that’s for another day.

Anyway, the vint coffee shop is a post for another day, and not for an SL blog.


Instead, lets look at my awesome murky green windlight choices and great manicure. I haven’t posted where my nails come from before now, but I think I’m going to start doing that. Air out my collection of SLINK manicure huds. (I have a lot of them. Alaskametro is quickly becoming one of my most versatile favorites though.)

The First of Many Frolicks


This is the very first photoset I shot with my PAWS rat head. I mean, obviously, I took wip shots, but none of those are here or for consumption. This was also the first time I wore this particular dress by Junbug. And my first purchase of an uchiwa because I needed way more colors than just green. (That’s a joke, it was more like my first seven purchases of an uchiwa because I’m impulsive and I get what I want.)

Speaking of what I want, this is also the first head I’ve gotten my beautiful space eyes by Plastik to fit into. SPACE! In my EYES! Every other head I had wasn’t hollow on the inside because they were sculpties, but this pretty mesh head has plenty of room for galaxies. Just what I needed.

It had actually been a while since my last visit to Alirium. It looks almost exactly how I left it, just as mystical and inviting and secretive. There’s no lack of pretty flowers. That’s probably why I love Alirium so much. Their store is a garden for the heart.

I like to think staying in pretty places will keep me positive and optimistic.

What do you do, or where do you go, to keep yourself positive and optimistic? Do you have your own favorite places or ways of being?

Here’s a song for you!

The End Of An Era (The serbex era, to be precise.)

I’m sure we’re all rather used to my big, beautiful muzzle. I know I am. I’ve gotten used to editing hair out of the way and begrudgingly putting glasses on the very top of my head, y’know, amongst all the other things on the very top of my head. I really do love my big nose and big teeth and big eyes…

But I love inspiration and following my divine whims waaay more. Which is why, after seeing several lovely modded beasties with serbex tusks on different heads, I will be retiring my serbex head. Probably not permanently, but for now, I’d just like my mesh hair to fit better and for my nose to stay a little closer to my face.

Glory in a new realm.

Honestly that title could mean a lot of things.

Really, though. I look good, I have new stuff, I’m in a new place. Triple whammy. However, this new realm is specifically a new rp sim I’ve adopted as home since every other sim decided to close on the same weekend. *stares at the camera with a faintly furrowed brow.*
