the validity of virtual photography ~My thoughts on Bergdorf Reports blog post. Please scroll and read it too!~

My personal opinion is that virtual art and photography are just as valid as real life art. I find that with my past history in real life with photography and classes and darkroom monitoring as well as fine arts…. the technical aspects of both virtual and real are essentially the same in many ways. With... Read More

Mommy and Me

The Avros ~ Prisilla (aka Silly) & Rocky Hello Readers! In my last post I alluded to trying out some new things this coming year in SL and one of those things is having a son! Well, I have a son in RL and he has long been interested in SL and quite the lil gamer himself, so I made him an account so that he and I could experience SL together! There are a few things I have in mind for him, and I won’t share those things just yet as I am not sure how many of them will materialize, but if they do, my son and I are going to be cracking up quite a bit. He really is my lil sidekick and I love him to bits. Made sense to me to share Second Life with him where we could have even more fun! Since I was all excited about my Bento makeover I was just as excited to make my son a cool looking, age-appropriate avatar! I admit I was kinda scratching my head on this one as there sure are a lot of toddler avatars and toddler fashion, but no where near the same offerings for more teenaged looking avatars. Knowing how much Trouble Dethly of PENUMBRA/Eclipse & Spotlight (such a busy guy!) supports the toddler community in SL, I figured he was the right guy to reach out to (not to mention he is super cool and my bro) and I was right!… Read the restmommy-and-me_-final

I’ve got sand in my boots

Hello Readers! I am often invited to judge Mr. & Miss Virtual World challenges…and that is not a brag or anything, just something I enjoy doing. As a model who had put herself out there to be judged by others on many occasions, I feel my experiences make me qualified to fairly judge others who are putting themselves out there in competitions. I am always flattered to be asked and always look forward to going. I take care in making sure I am presentable. As a former Miss, I firmly believe I have a standard to uphold. So when looking for something of quality to wear, it is no surprise that I default to Wicca’s Wardrobe. As any who know me or read my blog at all, Wicca is a longtime friend of mine and while we have not made an official SL relationship out of it, I consider her a sister. She and her man Red made my country costume when I was competing in 2015 and I LOVED it. So Wicca and MVW still go hand in hand for me. Besides, while Wicca has no “Face of Wicca’s Wardrobe” or anything, I know I am the Wicca’s Wardrobe Runway Princess!… Read the restWW Sandy_pm

Crash With Me

Hello Readers! RL is allowing me to get my blog on! So here I am with one of my full figured role play avatars, wearing a recent release from Wicca’s Wardrobe. I LOVE that Wicca is able to design for all Belleza sizes as I personally prefer Freya…the curvier the better I say! So here are all the head to toe details: hair: Truth Hair – Dulce
glasses: Aris Aris – Igs95 Azahara Fantasy Glasses
dress: Wicca’s Wardrobe – Belle Dress [Moonflower]
shoes: #EMPIRE – Phlox
pose: Wicca’s Wardrobe – Artemis Pose #5

What Second Life Means to Me

Hello Readers! I have a special treat for you today! More machinima!  I know that is just what you wanted. ;) I reblogged a link here on my blog to Xiola Linden’s machinima project in honor of Second Life’s 12th birthday and I have finally made my video after seeing a great deal of inspirational ones made by other residents. Being a fashion blogger at heart I have to share with you that I am wearing some of the latest from Legal Insanity: the Jaelle top (birds) and Baylie capris (old jeans jewels). Both items come in a wide array of options. I love the look! Thank you for reading and watching my machinima!

Boys of Summer

  Hello Readers! Thanks to Legal Insanity, male Silly (aka Silvester) got to come out and strut his stuff in this sexy tank called Sid. It comes in a few variations: solid or with a print (the one I have on is ‘music’), and with or without spikes. Variety certainly is the spice of life! This handsome tank is an exclusive to the Boys of Summer event going on NOW and through June 30th, so you all had best hurry over there before you miss it! Thanks for reading,

Summer Boheme

Hello Readers! The current round of the FAD Event is in its final days and will close as of June 25th in preparation for the next round. This round’s theme is “Bird of Prey” and I just loved that color scheme. In my last post for this round I made a departure from the literal ‘bird’ part of the theme and enjoyed the color palette instead and came out summer bohemian. My look is composed of mainly with items from AsHmOoT available at this round of the FAD Event. floral wreath >Rose Crown
top > Bad Girl Fringe Top
shorts > Vanessa Hot Pants
purse > Hand Sack
shoes > High Sandals My hair is from Moon and my pose is from Devilish Poses. Do be sure to get over to the FAD Event before this round closes, there are many great items to be had. Thank you for reading,

Alone in the Desert

Hello Readers! I have a bit more from the new FAD Fashion Event to share with you. I know I have expressed my love of options before, and I would think many would agree. I enjoy playing with options and seeing how outfits sort of fall together. I started with the Trinite shorts and top.  They come in quite a wide array of colors so they are just made for mixing and matching. Once I opened up the Bergdis jewelry set from Zibska (complete with cuffs, necklace and earrings), I used the HUD to set it to more of a turquoise look and selected the best Trinite shorts and top to match. The whole ensemble gave me a sort of desert feel so I put on my Glamistry Lantana ankle boots and a hat/hair combo from Argrace and I was all set! I am always a fan of Nailed It and her polish set for the “Bird of Prey” round of FAD is fabulous. She of course had a shade to match my look, and my favorite go-to makeup is Madrid Solo, I am wearing the London Liner set in bronze. My poses are from the always fierce Linda Reddevil of Devilish Poses.… Read the restFAD 061515_001e pm

Sing me a song…

Hello Readers! I love the connections I have made in Second Life. Much like in real life, there are some friends you talk to every day and others that you don’t, but each relationship is different. It is like that for me and my SL mom, Discovering Destiny (aka Lark). She and I have been friends for almost as long as I have been in SL. We became close in role play and even though I have exited that world, she and I remain very close. It is a relationship I value very much. Lark is the designer behind On A Lark and she makes amazing medieval style clothing. She and I had a lovely Skype chat today in which we spent most of it discussing our mutual enjoyment of the Outlander series that recently aired on the Starz channel. I wouldn’t have even heard about this series had it not been for another close role play friend, and I have enjoyed watching a wonderful show and being able to talk about it with some of my closest friends. Lark then told me all about the Claire dress she had made inspired by the show and I linked her to an image of Clarie’s wedding gown that I hope she will make!… Read the restOAL060415_001 cropped pm

Pilar

Hello Readers! I came to Second Life as an educator and after many years I ended up a model. My in between years were spent exploring the richness of role play so I certainly have a soft spot for it and I love visiting role play themed shopping events. Kiddo’s most recent addition to the We ♥ RP event is called Pilar and comes in several colors. It is elegant in its simplicity and it certainly delivers the craftsmanship I love in all of Kiddo’s creations. We ♥ RP is going on now and this round will end at the close of the month.  Do be sure to pay it a visit, you will be glad you did. [the details]

Perla

Hello Readers! I love blogging for friends. Today’s ensemble is another from the upcoming Femininity Expressed in Wings show by The Fantasy Angels Company, but it is created by my dear friend Lyrical Bizarre. Her outfits always seem to have movement to them and I certainly get the ‘lyrical’ in her name.  Then there is my pose. Most models have exhausted all the well known, well made pose makers (I know I have) but now there is another! My good friend and amazing model Linda Reddevil has opened her own pose store!  I of course teleported over there as fast as SL would go and bought up every single set. I am in one of her poses in this shot and I am sure you will be seeing a lot more of Devilish Poses in my posts! [the details]

Thinking of Lexie

Hello Readers! So as many of you know I blog male items as well as female and even made my debut as a male model at Siren Production’s Menswear Fashion Week held not too long ago. I had a blast. I refer to male Silly as Silvester and it was amusing how favorable of a response he received, especially from a certain Miss Lexie. The banter between us that whole week I was male in SL for that fashion week was hilarious. I have not needed to be Silvester since then I realized and when I pulled him out to model this latest release from Legal Insanity, that I could not help but think about that special Miss Lexie, and reflect on what a fun week we had. I think I had better call her up when I have some KaTink couples poses to show you. She and Silvester make quite the couple! [the details]

Uisce

Hello Readers! Today was the finale of Colour of Couture 2015 and it made me reminisce about my time last year in the very same competition. It seemed fitting to me that I should wear some Artizana when reflecting on things as the lovely Daine Fraina became a part of my Second Life back then. I was thrilled to win the photo challenge we had for Artizana in the competition and became a blogger of hers as well as a friend. Dainie’s designs are certainly some of my favorites with their vibrant colors and multitude of options. She further endeared her designs with me as she made them available for mesh bodies as well. In the photo above I am wearing my Physique, which allows me to be the curvier girl I want to be. [the details]
