I have to admit, I like smart. Smart guys turn me on. Smart girls I want around me, they’re funnier and more interesting. I work at a place in RL where being smart is requisite. We take it for granted.
Geeks and Nerds? They rule my world.
I was so tickled that Isla at Cheeky Pea created a new living room set inspired by The Big Bang Theory – it’s Penny’s Living room! I don’t have the chair out – totally forgot it,but it’s so lovely, I have to admit I was just delighted. I love how gorgeous it is and how many sit options she always includes. Continue reading →
One of my favorite groups back “in the day” was Bettina Tizzy’s Not Possible in Real Life (NPiRL). Tizzy gloried in the freedom of Second Life® creation – unshackled from the laws of Euclid and Newton – free to create anything they could imagine. Of course, Second Life has its own laws that result in some things common in real life becoming Not Possible in Second Life. Something quite simple in real life can become very complicated, even impossible, in Second life. One of those things is fringe.
Fringe is one of the fall’s hot fashion trends and promises to be an even hotter item in the spring. However, the physics of SL are not fringe-friendly. Of course, we could have flexi-fringe, but after two years of not having our clothes fall through our bodies, I think that is not the solution we want. We know from reports that flexi-mesh is not even under consideration right now. So I am excited to see Sunami Beck of Emery look for a work around. It’s not perfect, perfect is impossible, but it is a valiant effort that works pretty well overall. This fringe dress is a la page fashion – and it looks great. You can find it at Collabor88 with a bundle of coordinating loose sweaters like the on I am wearing. Continue reading →
Versus Magazine did a lovely tribute to Squinternet Larnia that was released on the 4th, the one-year anniversary of her death. Tania Tebaldi who wrote and managed Squinternet’s blog for her wrote an essay that showed a different perspective on Squinternet than the one I knew. That’s one of the reasons people come together to mourn their loved ones – because we all know people through different lenses and in sharing our grief, we all get a fuller, rounder perception of the person.

I covet things I see released, in fierce ways sometimes. These earrings from Bliensen + Maitai for instance were a must have the moment she plurked them.
The earrings are available at We <3 Roleplay event. The coordinating jewelry is available at…….I forget. Now I have to blog it again so I can say the name. Drat. OH WELL THE HARDSHIPS I ENDURE. #Secondlifebloggerproblems.
Arcade opens on the 1st and that means I have to make sure my affairs are in order. Rent is paid. Groceries purchased. I put on my sensible walking shoes and set out to stock up on the supplies that a pixel girl needs to make her world go round. This way I am ready to stock up on the supplies that a pixel girl WANTS to make her world go round.
I am ready Arcade. Let’s do this.
Gidge Is Wearing:
Skin: Pink Fuel – Harley – Crystal Hair: Exile – London THE ARCADE Skirt and Top: Sysy’s – Dorothy Shoes: Bowchicka – Purismo Hands and Feet: SLINK Shopping Bag: Schadenfreude – THE ARCADE Pantry, Goods and Chalkboard: Second Spaces – The Arcade
Glitch lovers have a treat at Collabor88. MishMash has paid homage to that wonderful, whimsical world with some lamps based on the worlds of Glitch. Anya Ohmai also pumped up the cute factor with AstroPork, an adorable porcine character with a star.
Schadenfreude went full science fiction with this month’s items for Collabor88. It makes me think of The Jetsons! Best of all, like so many items from Schadenfreude it is endlessly customizable. You can change the top, corset, jacket, sleeve and collar as well as the jacket. Continue reading →
Shoetopia will be ending this weekend. When I logged on earlier today it was easy to get in, so if you have been waiting for it to slow down, now is your chance. Certainly one of the can’t miss items at Shoetopia are these amazing shoes from League. I love the rich texture and the beautiful details that are the quintessential League elements. League designs with a verisimilitude I love -the shoes are not too glossy, the metal is not too shiny. There’s little wrinkles around the curves and t-strap that show they have been worn a few times. That buckle embellishment on the back is such a great addition. I love every single thing about these shoes.
So on Monday I did a set at The Velvet in celebration of the 50th Anniversary Doctor Who special. For fellow Whovians, it was a delight, full of the kind of wit, warmth and good fun we expect from the series – all with the fate of the world in balance. I thought I would share since there is a fair amount of SL – Whovian overlap.
Meanwhile, I am still madly in love with the apothecary cabinet from Schadenfreuda for November’s Collabor88. I may pose with it forever. Continue reading →
Gidge loves to show off her house and I love her posts showing her pixel life. I thought I might give you just a little peek into my house, too. I just redecorated a bit with some of the new items from this month’s Collabor88, including a magnificent chest and mannequin from Apple Fall, that Eiffel Marquee from floorplan. that I am obsessed with and a new bed from Pilot.
I finally made it to the Wizarding Faire this morning. I wanted two very specific things at the event, as I’m not a wand using/Harry Potter reading/cape wearer sort, I had planned a really limited amount of time to get in and get out.
Props to the builders, when you land you can touch a picture to get a map that details exactly where each creator’s items are. It’s built as an alley of shops (Harry Potter? I don’t know) and each creator is located with a small group in each one. It took me a minute to figure out how to get out of the landing zone – you have to touch a wall of rocks when then opens into the alley. There are words that say TOUCH HERE – but my camera wasn’t set high enough to see them initially.
When I got about the first area of shops – I got caught in the familiar lag soup. And this is where I also want to send out a HUGE set of props to the builders and even organizers- because I mentioned on plurk that I was having trouble and boom hello folks were there to see what was going on.
Being concerned about people’s shopping experience is amazing and really appreciated. Continue reading →
