Thank you so much all of you. Thank you Mami Jewell for allow me to be in such an amazing experience. Standing up bring on for next Challenge 😛


Challenge 30 – Electronics

Previously posted @ Chic at Phil’s Place.

Hard to believe but this is the 30th round for The Challenge. How time flies!  I have been along for the ride and it has been great fun seeing how the designers (sometime me too) use the theme to create new works each month.

This month’s theme is Electronics.

Long ago and far away we had “regular” cameras. A few folks still use film and developing, but most of us are now in the digital age. From ::NEWCHURCH:: a great set of cameras with lots of detail.

Now these spiffy cameras are a bit primmy (7-10) but they are also mod and if you are a gal or guy with a tiny bit of building experience it is very easy to attach the rezzable cameras as pose props. And that of course is JUST what I did.

I made a fairly nice camera when I was first learning mesh and along the way a set of camera poses; hence I was set for that part of the photo shoot. Now this cutie is much finer detailed than my one prim wonder of long ago; great for close up shots and all sorts of shenanigans.

It also comes with a strap.  Rez it, wear it, enjoy it!

The Challenge - NEW round - FREE animated mesh bed (pack of four) FREE

Refreshed from my recent holiday , Im back to bring you a few of the releases for this months round of The Challenge. The theme is electronics and its REALLY a mixed bag! Above is  a montage of items, plus a free mesh bed I picked up from Belle Epoque , you get four colours and each has poses for a singleton – low prim and perfect for photo props. Group is free to join also – I did notice as I was going through my emails that they have another group gift out , so if the bed is gone might be something different?

Close up of the Zeus digital camera by NewChurch, its static , so great for slipping onto a table or in a photo. Lovely details and comes with the option of strap or no strap.

Monday Meme: Ask Me Anything Challenge

Previously posted @ Prim Dolls.

Into Winter

I have serious doubts about how many responses I’ll have to this… but I’ve created an Ask Me Anything and will wait with baited breath to see if anyone asks me… anything. In the meantime, I’ll also answer Strawberry Singh’s questions, as she teases us with another of her incredibly fun memes!

  1. If Linden Lab shut the door on Second Life, what do you think you might do to replace it, or the time you spend on it. Gaming, school, work, reading, other virtual world, etc?
    I would probably find other games to replace it. Before Second Life there was Gaia Online, and before that Fandom Wank; I don’t see myself leaving the internet any time soon. Second Life has held my attention for a hella long time, though, and I’m looking forward to seeing what Sansar is like. I just wish bloggers got to sneak in early!
  2. What would you consider your mission statement for your blog?
    Creativity. I try to push myself to explore more things, and in more creative ways, and to explore all of the different worlds in Second Life. I also am pushing myself to think more creatively and create ways to express my feelings that I’m comfortable with.
  3. What would you change about your SLife right now if you could just press a magic button and have it automatically happen?
    I would love to be able to run Second Life in ultra mode and record as well. I’ve been trying my hand at videos, and the drop in quality is depressing.
  4. What topic would you like to see explored in a non fashion blog post? Anything you are curious about and want someone else to do all the research?
    I would love a real, comprehensive demographic study of Second Life. So often, explorations of SL end up focusing on small corners, but I’d love one which took into account everything, from the people who long in for SLex and leave, to the people who have built enormous worlds and lives. I want to know it all.
  5. Do you have a point of contact in SL? Someone that a person from your RL knows to contact in case something happens to you or you are unable to get online for an extended period of time?
    No, but I’ve been considering setting that up. I do have people from Second Life where we’re in touch offline, though.
  6. What provides you the most inspiration and motivation to keep learning and growing? What keeps you from being held back by the common negativity in SecondLife and elsewhere?
    One of the inspirations for Sunday Squee, and why I keep doing it, is to try to find that positivity. Some weeks it’s really challenging, and this year has been difficult from a ton of different angles, but I’m hanging in there and trying to remember all of the things I love.
  7. How do you deal with other bloggers (who don’t know you personally) that are spiteful towards you?
    That actually hasn’t happened to me, so far as I know. Everyone I’ve met has been very kind. This is more a function of my being small potatoes than anything else, though – one of the things which attention brings is negative responses.
  8. What is your advice to those that admire you and what you do, hoping to be able to do some of the same things with as much confidence as you often seem to have?
    Most confidence that appears real is fake. Inside, I think almost everyone feels scared and alone – a bunch of us have just learned to put on a calm face and keep going. I feel insecure most of the time, but I try to focus on my most central values and keep moving and doing what I think is right, and hope things turn out for the best in the end.
  9. Name 5 favorite events in Second Life.
    Genre; I adore the different themes and how unique each tends to be – even when the pickings are scarce!
    Fantasy Faire; I love the magic and whimsy which accompanies it.
    A Tattered Page; I love the connection between books and creativity.
    Second Life’s Advent Season; the stores change almost every year, but the generosity remains the same.
    21 Shoe; every month I have an excuse to do something creative and fun with entirely too many shoes, and this event is why!
  10. Name three of your favourite blogs.
    This is a very hard question – I link to a ton of blogs on my sidebar of any number of provenances; picking three will be tough. 
  11. Ziki Questi’s Blog; I love the places she visits and shares, and the fact she’s a delightful person doesn’t hurt.
    Honour McMillan’s Blog; I love her analysis of different places she visits and the art she views.
    Canary Beck’s Blog; I don’t always agree with her, but she always gives me food for thought.

Lost in Mists

And indeed, some questions came in!

  1. Have you always been a faery in Second Life?‎ (Strawberry Singh)
    Almost from the beginning. One of the first things I purchased was a set of wings, and I’ve been wearing them very since. I have one alt who is also winged, but the other Deoridhes aren’t.
  2. What is your most prized possession in your inventory?
    It’s very difficult to say; I have a core set of things I wear all of the time, which would qualify as very important, and a set of things with high sentimental value, which would count as very important, but right now I’m borrowing a single item from a friend – a gacha rare, and I think that has to win the prize for most important, since it’s borrowed.
  3. How do you manage to post blog posts so frequently? Do you have any tips for bloggers who are trying to improve themselves?
    I honestly don’t consider myself to blog a lot, though since the beginning of the year I’ve been trying for final numbers close to once a day. Mixing in short posts helps a lot – for example, I blog 21 Shoe and I tend to do a separate post for every show, which bumps up my numbers. I have an entire category, shorts, which are just images and a few words, and I’ll do one of those when I feel like I haven’t blogged enough. Anything with a lot of copy takes longer unless I’m really inspired. As for trying to improve yourself, that really depends on what you think your weaknesses are. Identify a few bloggers you would like to be like and look at what they do, how they do it, etc… Then try to match that and see how it goes. It may not be a good fit – it’s easy to admire what we don’t have – but at least you will have tried.
  4. What’s your favorite fashion style for blogging?
    It’s hard for me to chose between Quasi-Lolita (I say quasi because my tops tend to be low-cut, which is NOT Lolita) and a princess pretty style. I like to mix it up, though, and push the envelope. I don’t want to be known for just one style, or even just one color!

Ask Me Anything Challenge

Previously posted @ StrawberrySingh.com.

About a year and a half ago I created an account on Ask.fm and put it on my blog and some of my social media asking people to send me any questions they wanted to ask me. Since this kind of thing is anonymous, you can imagine some of the questions I’ve received so far. […]

42 Second Life Groups Challenge

Previously posted @ Aeon Blogging::..

Crown: Ariskea – Pot Pourri {Headband Rare}
Hair: Wasabi Pills – Keira
Eyes: IKON – Odyssey {Clarity}
Skin: Logo – Alex {Bloom}
Teeth: Logo – Vampire Style 2

          Meme Instructions: Answer the following questions about groups and share some of your favorites with us. Don’t forget to leave your link in the comments, and in Strawberry’s post
1. Have you reached the 42 group limit? I have reached the limit. I am not sure when I reached it, but I am fairly certain that it didn’t take too long to do so. Especially as a blogger. 
2. Do you do a lot of group hopping to keep up with all the groups you want to stay a part of? I sometimes feel like I do a lot of group hopping. There are groups that I NEED to be a part of, as a blogger, or vendor, but also groups I don’t want to leave for certain reasons, like having had to leave the Hogwarts RP group even though I really didn’t want to. I am also careful about leaving groups I have paid for. Some of them cost a lot of money, and I don’t want to have to pay for them again.
3. What makes you want to join a group? Usually the benefits. Do I get a great discount? Is it a group I want to stay informed on? I don’t like then they spam all the time, unless I find the information very important.
4. A lot of store VIP groups have a group fee which you have to pay to join. How do you feel about paying group fees? I am influenced by group fees depending on what I get for the fee. I don’t like paying the L$ 500 fees for sure, I am more okay with the L$ 100-150 group fees. The lower the easier it is to leave to make space because I know I can pay again to join and it wont break my bank. If I am getting great discounts, or fantastic gifts that I can really use then the group fees aren’t so bad. 
5. Name a few groups that you are a part of that you feel everyone should look into joining and share your reasons behind that. Of the groups I am currently a part of I would suggest Seraphim for sure! They are attached to nearly every event/store sale/yardsale out there. It is hard for me to suggest a certain store because it depends on your own tastes. It can also be tricky to pick club groups, because that also depends on what you are looking for. I do have my favorite groups, but if there was just one group I HAD to pick one, it would be the Seraphim group, if you like shopping at all, male, female, child, fur, any body really.

The Challenge – Its Asian Baby

Previously posted @ Pure Eggs & Spam.

The Challenge bauwerk, Jian 9L asian style table & cushions

The theme for this round of The Challenge is Asian, so don’t be surprised to see plenty of sushi and spring rolls ! Seriously totes amazing foody items this round, makes me a happy bunny. Jian has an incredible food set out, platters of Asian treats, VERY low Li and also colour change for the dishes, bottle & glasses. (The mainstore has just opened up – join the group and get your opening gift of candles!) Also in the frame are bauwerk with their beautifully adorned cabinet and assorted deco items, low prim and really on trend. The table I’ve laid the food out on is a bargain from Roots. I found on the market place, just 9L for the whole set, the fabrics have a choice of colours and designs built right in.

The Challenge - Sky box asian theme 10L

I was most impressed with this Asian themed sky box I found on the market place for just 10L. It’s by Zyn and is called “Little Zen Skybox”, only 36 prims in total and you get everything you see in the photo – with the exception of the bamboo plants. (I swapped out the flowers it came with for bamboo – easily done as its modify)

You can base it off an original movie poster or think of a completely new idea of your own. Get creative and have some fun with it!
