#83 New look Memory – raw

You don’t know this new me;

I put back my pieces,

differently.                                                                                              @HighPoetsSociety

We can do this every day in Second Life – BUT I don’t.

I change my avie a little, to fit outfits or to achieve a certain ‘costume’, but big changes I only make maybe once a year, or less. I need to feel like me in my avie.

This time the change is into a mesh head, which you would think is no big deal – they have been around so long now that the next step – Bento- is already here. I have joined the ranks of folk who appear as detached floating parts before assembling into something resembling human form.  It has felt like a big step for me – but strangely many of my friends didn’t even notice!

These photos were quickly shot in Coastal Afternoon WL setting and cropped – to send in for a casting that I’d left till the last minute.

#63 Your Performance is Almost Over

New appliers for treasured gowns worn under stage lighting to meet a photography challenge!

Your performance is almost over
When you’re through I will take you home
To a place where the water’s always fresh and cool
I will lay you down, take off your shoes

The performance is nearly over...

I was inspired by finding that pixivor Allen – of ALaFolie has released MESH body appliers for some of her most fantastic creations. I have a special place in my heart for this version of the gown she created for Miss Philippines (back in…. 2009?)  and several other treasured dresses. THANK YOU Pixi!

An old favorite heard on the radio – Performance – by Joe Cocker  – gave me the story-line to meet a photography challenge set by  a friend – I hope she likes what I’ve done.

#52 magical morning

  • There is something magical about the early morning. It’s a time when the world belongs to only those few who are awake. And we walk around like kings while others remain unseen in their beds.

    Shawn Blanc

Finding those moments in SL – when the crowds are asleep or elsewhere is like treasure. Sometimes the trick is to go early in the morning (hey- whose morning?) or else to wait till after the feeding frenzy of opening days has passed. The Secret Affair has lots of treasures – including body jewelry by several creators. Here I am only showing a couple of items – worn with the skirt part of a lovely VIP Exclusive from Carrie’s.
