My beloved Steelhead, my home for most of my Second Life..is going away at the end of September.

I was in tears, as was nearly everyone else, at the meeting today when Lunar announced it. It was not an easy decision for him to come by. But his health, his moms health and other reasons have brought him to it. He needs a break, and while he loves Steelhead dearly, financially it is not working for him.

And so, This month I will be spending it taking photos of the 5 sims before they vanish. And looking for a new home. I think I have a new place for the Teagarden in Caledon, but not a personal home yet. I might go back to the Willowdale estates, but I'd really like to find a place that has seasons, now that I have this stunning house that is season change. I had planned on it being my last home in Steelhead, But not THIS WAY!

The inworld group will remain, we'll still be a family that way. As will the Steelhead Relay Team. But the sims will go. We are looking at a way to maintain the weekly Friday dance as well.… Read the rest

Pandora’s box of dreams photo contest

I got personally invited to enter this contest, because I have taken shots of the sim in the past. So I took 6 shots, three in my normal form and three in catfish form.

I want to show them off so here they are! I had fun taking them and even played with Depth of Field for a couple, which I usually don't mess with. So that was a new experience and I will have to play with it more in the future.

I forgot to write down the poses I used, most of them I got at this months round of Enchantment though. The none mermaid outfit is Aloha, eh? by deviousMind Slurl

Finally the post about the sim I took the photo here at!

I am just in love with this sim and how they change the build completely every so often. This time the dream is an amazing tropical island. With all manner of cozy nooks and fun things to do.

Del Mar dream is packed with things to do, you can fly with a parrot, have a picnic, go hang gliding or even Jet skis if you can find them!

But it's also just a stunning sim. The palm trees swaying softly, the sound of the animals and the waves crashing. Bring a special someone for a nice date out. Or go by yourself for some relaxing alone time. It's an amazing summer getaway in Secondlife.… Read the rest

On the wings of love

So I picked up an amazing new house for my plot in Steelhead. It's so perfectly whimsical AND it changes seasons. So I have decided it will be the last house I put up. So I am going all out with the furnishing instead of just slapping down some chairs or something. Which means photos. And I deiced that over the fireplace in the living room I needed a big ol wedding photo of me and Adar.

So I spent like, three days looking all the wedding gowns on the marketplace to find one I like. And then another day looking for something for Adar to wear, Went to Ode and took this!

and the same pose just with the camera pulled back

A weekend of Hope

“Hope” is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -
And sings the tune without the words -
And never stops - at all -

And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard -
And sore must be the storm -
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm -

I’ve heard it in the chillest land -
And on the strangest Sea -
Yet - never - in Extremity,
It asked a crumb - of me.

~~~ Emily Dickinson


Relay weekend has come and gone, seems like both it happened in a flash and also took forever. So much money raised and even more Hope. Hope that in the Future we wont HAVE to Relay as a cure has been found for Cancer.

And so now that it is over the sims are coming down in a few hours. I managed to get to all but three of the campsites after relay before they where removed by their teams. Some fantastic builds this year. I've got all my photos at the following links

http://www.softpaw.org/LJimages/SL/RFLSL2015pre photos taken before Relay weekend. I got one shot at least of each of the camps

http://www.softpaw.org/LJimages/SL/RFLSL2015 photos taken during Relay, lots of shenanigans with other people and shots of some of the fun avatars that run the track.… Read the rest

Relay for Life of Secondlife 2015 Is over for the year

The joy and bittersweetness of it is setting in. Was it a record year like the past few? No, but after last years big 10th anniversary blow out, that makes sense. Bit of a scale back after all the extremeness of last year. Was it still a great year? Of course! We raised $262,848 with more due in by the end of August! That's not a small amount. 1229 people ran the track, and I made my personal goal of beating last years 12 laps by one lap. Despite some worse then ever sim crossing issues before the Luminara ceremony. AND I made my none Secondlife donation goal! look!





The last $50 came from a Ren Faire friend who is a survivor. They've asked I not state their name though. Got it in JUSt as I was about to go to bed so made for a GREAT ending for my Relay!

Now, to go into these camps in more detail and see all the great things people built! Some great looking interactive builds this year!


And I leave you with a shot of Steelheads Camp. Lunar did a great job this year.

Missing those gone and Thinking of those fighting the cancer battle.

I chose to hold a lantern this year instead of a candle to represent the bright light that Relay is in the fight towards candle. Leading the way to a cure.

oops I did it again

So yeah, after Fantasy fair ended this year ren faire season hit and hit HARD. It was an especially hard run between the weather *sooo much rain in Oklahoma* , some issues with other people on cast, and the plumbing in my house had major problems. So something had top give, and it was blogging secondlife. I've been trying to get back into the swing of it but none of the sims I went to and photographed really connected with me enough to make an effort to blog them on their own.

So in an attempt to get back into things. I'm doing a "whoops I forgot to blog these places" post and post links and photos to a few sims I never got around to blogging. This goes back to last year! Oldest item first

First up! Kagami 2014 - A Japanese horror event http://www.softpaw.org/LJimages/SL/Kagami14

This was a fun adventure game, not so big on the horror IMO that was on a really beautifully done sim. It was a little tricky and you had to be careful what you wore as it had a script limit. But it was worth it in the end.… Read the rest

Happy Independence day!

Fantasy Faire 2015 is over for the year. The sims are still up for a few more days, till Linden Labs takes the magic away. But the faire events are done with. Just sight seeing and a weee bit of shopping to still do.

So far the totals for Money raised for Relay For Life is $30,752 USD. WOW! I believe that is a new fantasy faire record.

Thank you to all the amazing creators that offered such a wide variety of items for sale that helped raise that amount. And all those that just straight up donated. Thank you

One day we will win this battle against cancer and it is thanks to people that donate to fund the research that it will happen. But the money wont go to just that. It goes to help those currently fighting deal with it, be it treatments, emotional support or needed information.

Fantasy Faire 2015 Sim – Ravenshold and the 2015 Hunt, The Lost Land

Ravenshold (by Rynn Verwood)The hunt sim, hosting the second part of the Fairelands Hunt: The Lost Land. The snow-clad island stands slightly aside of the Fairelands circle, silent in its solitude. What secrets does it hold?

I am combining a post about the Faire hunt and the post about Ravenshold, the sim that the second part of the hunt takes place on, together as its logic. I am going to try to not be to spoilery, but some of my photos in the album link below may have some spoilers. And if you wish to read and exceptional guide to the hunt, that helps but doesn't outright GIVE the answers head on over to Deoridhe at Primdolls and check out hers. First part is here and second part is here.

You can pick up a hunt hud at any landing point on all the Faire sims, and randomly if a nfew other places. You'll have two choices, one that is just the hud, the other comes with a cute outfit by Bare Rose, which you can see in my photos of the hunt and Ravenshold, except the hat it came with.… Read the rest
