#46 Retro Love

Those who have never known the deep intimacy and the intense companionship of mutual love have missed the best thing that life has to give.
Bertrand Russell

Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?  I never did …until I met my love in Second Life. Every year we take a photo for Valentine’s remembrance. This year I am a little early because I found this lovely pose at Image Essentials  – RETRO LOVE – it has the feel of nostalgia for me.

#44 Do It In a Halo – who am I? why am I here?

Do It In a Halo – who am I? why am I here?

A little over 7 years ago I created a Second Life avatar and named her Memory – to discover and explore an amazing phenomenon – an immense cyber world where the content is created and maintained by its own users. I had no idea how much I would laugh – and cry;  that the people I would meet would become my dear friends. That some would die.  Alongside this I have joined the SL fashion scene- where high fashion is as easy to wear as jeans – and where anyone can “do it in a halo”. I have learned SL photography – (old dogs can learn!) and that some skills transfer between worlds – some do not.

I blog to share some of the delight I find in the creativity in SL – to make links between people and places and worlds; to celebrate.

You were once wild here. Don’t let them tame you.

Today while I was looking around *Boom* for something entirely different and pondering the meaning of life I found this halo –

Halo 2

It attaches invisibly to the head, at an adjustable distance – and follows … oh the joy of being able to do this in the real world!

Halo 5

My outfit today is Chloe, part of the brand new {AnaMarkova} collection released today by Anastacia Markova. I am impressed by the clean lines and attention to detail. This shouldn’t surprise anyone who knows Ana from her fantastic Opium Evolution fashion-theatre-art productions – Ana is a perfectionist.

Halo 6

My minimalist .:Fiore:. ponytail and gorgeous JD snakeskin heels were from the December round of ~uber~ so hopefully they will soon be released in the mainstores.

Halo 3

PosEsioN poses from the @1st *Rue La Page* event, and the Maitreya mesh Body – Lara help me to display my outfit. I have been slow to try MESH bodies- but hmm – so far I like what  am finding.

I just found out that she is closing the Poised shop TODAY!!! so there are just 4 hours left … no 3.

Poised group shot

Such great deals- 24 shirt textures  and 6 skinny jeans ones! Here are just 3 combos – the Princess pink top with the purple stripe jeans, the Art black top with the Teal tartan jeans and the Love ocean top with the Street jeans.

I tried the method using the Firestorm camera lock  from Xantheannes’s tutorial – great fun to get 3 of me in the one setting.
