Snowbunny ^^

Ahhh!  January and February mean lots of snow in my part of the world!  That means I better bundle up and get cozy with a cup of cocoa before the chill hits and the roads get grim!  Snow comes with some perks, however, and one of those is absolute beauty!  I adore snow and when it first falls, everything is so beautiful and crisp.  You walk outside and the Earth feels new and clean.

My outfit today uses some of my favorite pieces from a few of my favorite winter fashion buys.  I instantly fell in love with this little bunny hood by BareRose Tokyo and had to create an outfit totally around it.  This was the final outcome and I’ve been so excited to wear it.  In fact, I’ve been wearing it as one of my main daily looks for about a month now ^^

As for the set, I based it off of this little igloo set by Append 01.  I moved a lot of it around, added my own touches like birds and mountains, and retextured it a bit.  If you do buy it, it won’t look exactly like in my images.  However, it is a really cute buy right out of the box and I do recommend it.  I created a snowgirl and dressed her in a scarf by Soup and Bunny Ears by Chelle.  Both items would look awesome on your avatar so don’t be shy about checking those products out either ^^

Red Phosphorus at Juicy!

The new mainstore is still being constructed, but in the meantime, I now have a small satellite store over on the Juicy sim!  It’s a really cute sim and I’m incredibly happy with my little storefront.

Hot Cocoa Wishes

Winter is here and we’re all going to need nice coats and trimmings to keep us warm on those cold, Second Life days!  It’s been really great seeing so many sims changing over for the winter.  There’s something magical about walking in a virtual winter wonderland, snowflake emitters peppering your hair in white.  The sim where I shot these images, Petit Pas, doesn’t disappoint when it comes to snowy satisfaction.  I shot these images at the Sugar Pink Cafe, which is adorable but very, very closed during the time I was stumbling about and sliding on icy walkways.

I had been eying this coat by G Field forever!  It just didn’t make too much sense to buy it when it was 100 degrees outside in the real world.  (Of course, that never really stopped me before.)  The coat is incredibly cute, has adorable detail, and is sold in the same store where I picked up these little, fur-lined boots.  I did modify colors on both the boots and the coat so don’t try to find these exact matches.  If you want the look I’m showing here in the images, buy the ones I listed in the style card below and then tint all the necessary bits.  Also, the boots have several invisiprims surrounding them.  You can either edit those to smaller sizes to where they just vanish within the boot itself or you can unlink the boots and then remove the invisiprims that way.  Just remember what your parent prim is!  To solve the alpha issue, since the boots don’t come with one, just add an alpha from a different pair of boots.  I used one from Neurolab.

Have I ever mentioned I’m a Pink Fuel junky?  I am and I love my Elly Skin to no end.  I just love how pale the Sugar color is and how it looks in winter scenes.  I can’t wait for Mochi Milena to create another because I’ll be right there ready to buy.  Her lipstick options are incredible as if the skins aren’t cute enough.  Most of you already know that, but if you’re new and trying to figure out which skin is right for you, I recommend you at least demo the Elly skin at Pink Fuel.

With Christmas time right around the corner many Second Life residents are beginning to shop around for the perfect gifts for their online loved ones.  There are so many great choices out there and I can’t seem to make up my mind either.  I’ll be building some, buying others, but I just can’t wait to see all my friends happy for the holidays.  After all, we’re all real people behind our keyboards.  No matter how far apart we all are, it doesn’t mean that our Second Life friends and family aren’t close to our hearts ^^

Spiraling Towards the Singularity

Second Life isn’t exactly a parallel universe but it is an experience unique from our own day-to-day reality.  We log in and automatically assume a different identity, however small of a difference that may be.  Many of us have jobs and physical appearances in Second Life that demonstrate no real similarity to our actual existence here in the Milky Way Galaxy.  We may show people sides of ourselves that would seem strange and alien to those we communicate face to face with and, at times, several of us might even feel more at home in our avatar’s pixels than we do within our own flesh and blood vessel.

There’s a lot of safety within the Second Life galaxy.  Your experience is totally based on your own interests, decisions, and ideals.  From the moment you log on, you decide where the pieces fall.  Sure, there may be a bit of random chaos as you stumble through the multitude of sims, but, in the end, you construct your own piece of the cosmos.  Like an invisible hand you create a solar system around your character.  You know which places you like to visit, where you like to shop, and, if you’re a builder, what dreams you want to create.  You surround yourself with what you desire, positive and negative, and then you watch as each planet evolves, flourishes, and possibly even dies.

You can be a star, and just like an actual celestial body, you can center yourself and use your gravitational pull to ensure the story revolves around you.  For many people who are using Second Life for more than just entertainment, that’s a valuable opportunity.  As months pass by I meet more and more people.   Often times, I’ve met a lot of individuals who struggle with inner demons, low self-esteem, and real life hardships that they want to escape from.  Second Life offers them the control they may be lacking in real life and possibly even a place where they can meditate and discover the value they possess as human beings.  They meet people, build friendships, explore their own thoughts and ideas, and hopefully develop a healthier sense of self and community that they can then apply to their actual real lives where experiences are often more difficult to control.

But it’s important to remember that as with our own Milky Way Galaxy, your star and mine are not alone.  We all exist with our own planetary systems and there are thousands of us.  Sometimes, we may even find ourselves colliding, and in that event, explosions are bound to occur.  If you find yourself in that situation just remember that matter is never really destroyed.  You’ll evolve and your experiences can be even better.  Take whatever shattered elements remain within your grasp, wish whatever has drifted away well, and rebuild your happiness.  You may be pleased with the outcome.  After all, Earth wouldn’t have life if the moon hadn’t been formed through a massive impact.  Sometimes the craters and scars are worth the pain they take to make.  That goes for both Second Life and for the flesh and blood world we inhabit each day.
