My beloved cousin Ghanima Uriza messaged me the other day after a long absence. She has started to dip her toe into the world of mesh and I guess I had not realized how long she’d been gone – the pixel world has changed so much since the last time we were able to chat.
She’s back at work creating her beautifully hand-painted textures that were the HALLMARK of Blueblood back in the heyday. I am so excited to get to share a little something she’s been working on.
It was so lovely to chat with her, to talk about our lives and how we are both in such a different place how with regards to how we embrace Grid Life. Neither of us are willing to allow it to run us anymore, instead we are excited to get to participate in the things we love on our own terms. For me it’s blogging, for her it’s creating.
I have to say, I’m excited to have another Uriza cousin back on the grid. We’re a rare breed.

Coco has released all of their old doll heads, I recently read on Freestyle, and I couldn’t resist joining the group to see what they were like. I hadn’t ever tried them so I was anxious to see if I could make anything of them without the doll body. Continue reading →
BlueBlood is at the World Goth Fair and has put out some adorable shift dresses with a macabre theme, as you’d expect. They’re a fun and easy slip on for when you’re considering your mortality, or others, but still want to be cute.
For only 50L a pull there is no BAD color to pick up, but I pulled on the red color today to wear while I am out shopping.
I also can’t stop loving these cat eye glasses from YUMMY. Gidge might wear glasses now.

I can answer that question in many parts. First of all, it’s a hobby that ties in with two things I’m fond of, Second Life and fashion. It’s an activity in collaboration with my best friend, Cajsa, and with good friends I’ve made along the way like Hybie, Till, Acha and the rest of the team.
It’s also an ego boost. Anyone who says that they don’t get high when they’re invited to blog an event, receive a review copy or simply get a compliment, we’ll, they’re lying to you. I’ve been doing this for over five years, and I can tell you – I dance just as hard and happily when any of those things happens as I did the first time it happened. My first review copy was the LUCY Skin from LAQ. I remember that moment like it was yesterday.
I think, as I watch folks post their daily posts, I am missing your passion – the piece of your blog posts that are YOU. Where did you go? Are you just bogging XYZ because everyone else is doing it an you don’t want to be left out? WHY? Continue reading →
In the middle of the night I found myself wandering a landscape of grey and black. There were no candy apples for sale, despite the sign. OMG – This could mean only one thing – NIGHTMARE. Continue reading →
It’s typical, that life hands me something awesome and then gives me not awesome along side it. I’m not sure if that’s karma I’m burning off of simply the run of things but just as soon as I’m ecstatic about a temp spot to live and shoot pics, all my pics today show up with more grid lines than ever in them.
See how I cropped that vertical one above? I’m pretending it’s intentional. Go with it. Continue reading →
Sometimes despite the lack of green dots on the map, I have the uncanny feeling of being watched while I’m changing and getting ready to shoot. Like someone has disabled camera constraints and is perv camming me from ridiculous distance. Continue reading →
This week I was struck by my friend Kesseret saying her new motto is “If you want peace, you must prepare for war.”
That works for me.
