Second Life Photos: What I Like #15

A Short Film About Long Things by Whiskey Monday I like A Short Film About Long Things by Whiskey Monday. It defies gravity and our expectations. I also think it sold more HPMD grass than all their marketing combined. It’s a play on perspective challenging our expectations which is what art should do. Ernst Gombrich said, “Art is an institution to which we turn when we want to feel a shock of surprise. We feel this want because we sense that it is good for us once in a while to receive a healthy jolt. Otherwise we would so easily get stuck in a rut and could no longer adapt to the new demands that life is apt to make on us. The biological function of art, in other words, is that of a rehearsal, a training in mental gymnastics which increases our tolerance of the unexpected.” Well, that’s what Whiskey is doing, increasing our tolerance of the unexpected. In terms of composition, you can see the light pole follows the Rule of Fifths, the line from Whiskey to the bird and the edge of the grass follows the Rule of Thirds, and the subject follows the Golden Ratio.… Read the restA Short Film About Long Things

On The Dotted Line…….~Paris Metro Couture~

She signed her beauty, personality, style, talent and her life away when she picked up that expensive shiny pen. Carefully the elegant lady signed her name steady as she was trembling in the best script she could just above that dotted line. Her mere existence was now theirs. While standing up a voice spoke softly in […]

Fantasy Faire 2017 Sim – Egregore

EGREGORE | SLURL| SHOPS
Sponsored by The Epic Toy Factory. Egregore  by Mayah Parx.
A fantastical thoughtform of serene darkness immersed in light, a place where expected purpose is relative and surrealism casts it shadow across the land, inhabited by egregors this fantastical place is born of the collective phantasmagoria of its people. All of my photos of this sim can be seen at this link here

Egregore is a quirky but, a bit creepy, sim by one of my favorite sin designers, the toymaker herself Mayah Parx! Egregore has the feeling of a childs toy box scattered about the landscape, with the shops being in giant doll houses made for the giant doll like enhabatines of the sim. Other bits of toys, candy, and some of her past sims, dot the landscape. Be sure to walk on the piano keys!

Fantasy Faire 2017 Sim – Fallen Sands

FALLEN SANDS | SLURL| SHOPS
Sponsored by Merchants of Dreams. Fallen Sands by Sweetgwendoline Bailey & Eldowyn Inshan.
Steampunk in a desert landscape where the Orient and Arabia via for dominance. Exotic plants of alien origin turn the sands into an oasis of life where the turquoise water is the treasure of fountains and the infinite pearls of tan fall to mark the passage of time in this eternal city.
All my photos of the sim are at this link


This steampunk desert oasis has a charm of its own. The skeletons scattered about beg to have a story written about them. There is just so much to see in this sim. From the rusty copper birds flying about, to the great lightbulb flowers. You just want to know more about them all. Or write your own story. Even the creatures in the water have their own charm.

Have your sounds on in this sim as well. There are orbs of various sounds scattered about to immerse you even more.

POSES!! I FOUND A POSE STORE! I bought like everything they had and will be using them in other sims as well. The store is Eternal Dream and all the poses in this post are by them. Some have props others do not. Pose stores is one thing Fantasy Faire is lacking a lot of this year.

Anyway. Some lovely gowns, and rezable land items. In fact, I'd say 80% of the sim can be bought to take home. Love that about the Looking Glass.

Gowns first!

Fantasy Faire 2017 Sim – Dawn’s Promise

DAWN’S PROMISE | SLURL| SHOPS
Sponsored by The Looking Glass.
Dawn’s Promise  by Marcus Inkpen & Sharni Azalee.
A secret place between times where the old becomes reborn into the new. Majestic crumbling ruins dissolve into a sea of glorious foliage. A place where the lost energies of the past are converted into new life. Springs of life-giving water overflow. Flower petals and creative energy float on the breeze. This is the space between the exhale and the inhale. Full of hope and promise.
All my photos of the sim are at this link


I love this sim so much. I want to live in it. It's just a blissful, colorful, calming sim. Marcus and Sharni have scattered all sorts of cozy little nooks to rest in and enjoy the faire day with. I plan to pick up a number of them. They are so delightfully boho and fae like.

That the buildings are on what can only be described as upside down mountains adds to the magical ethereal feeling. Dozens of waterfalls spilling off of them into the water below add a calming effect.… Read the rest

Not quite as many outfits from this sim. Mostly, as if you are a tiny or a dinkie avatar wearer this is the sim you want to go to! I wear neither so I don't have any of those to blog. But GO TO THE HILL if you do! So many designers for those types of avatars!

Lets start with this gorgeous ball gown from Aleutia. This gown comes with a hud that lets you change the color of several parts to mix and match. The top is slightly sheer but the bottom is full satin and flows so nicely.… Read the rest
