#Level Event and Shiny Shabby

This week I did another fun post with a vehicle! Inspired by Cardi from the Motorsport Video! Most of these items came from Level, however my eyeshadow (which you probably can’t see because of the glasses :P) the hair, and he Bodysuit did not. The bodysuit was from the Shiny Shabby event! Another event I loved this week was the NeoJapan event! I got the Kimono I wore in this week’s inspiration post from there! Enjoy the pics and check out my Flickr for the ones that don’t get posted here!

Choosing a Second Life Home

 

Welcome Back Everyone!

I got another request for more information about Land in Second Life and I thought it would be a great opportunity to talk about my home! So to start, I want to say that there’s no “right” way to live in SL. Its all based on what you want and how much money you want to spend. I don’t go too deep in depth but if you’re looking for moe information the Land Wiki is my favorite resource. I learned so much from it when I was just getting started too!

Let’s start with how to get it!

There’s a couple different ways and a couple different kinds of land you can get. First there’s Mainland and Private Land.

If you have a premium account, you’re given a land allowance and with that you can get a Linden Home. (so cool right?) I lived on a platform above my Linden home for a long time. I took a break from SL, didn’t pay my premium that year, and when I came back I guess you weren’t allowed to do that anymore. If you’re premium, you can also purchase land that’s been abandoned or put up for Auction on the website. With your own land, you’ll have to pay rent to the Lindens in the form of what’s called “Tier”! Another option that you have is to purchase your own region or “sim”, which is much bigger than the plots of land on the mainland, but it offers more privacy, space, and prims. This comes with a pretty hefty Tier, but if it’s what you want, GO FOR IT!

After I got evicted from my Linden Home, I moved to my first “Community” on SL, which would be considered Private Land. Someone purchases land (a region) and parcels it off, and rents you a piece and a certain amount of prims to use. Depending on the land owner, you would pay rent (tier) weekly, biweekly, or monthly. You can even pay in advance.  I loved my time in communities because it afforded the opportunity to meet new people and roleplay. Some of the cons of communities can be drama and lack of privacy, so keep that in mind.

Ultimately I left community living in search of my own space that I could customize. In all my years on SL, I hadn’t learned how to terraform and build/customize my own spaces and I wanted to do that. I have rented land from a lot of different land sellers on SL, but by far my favorite has been Latin Estates. Their prices are reasonable and they give you a lot of prims. Their customer service is on point and their sims run well, definitely not extreme lag like some places.

There’s an entire wiki on Land that’s updated and managed by Linden Labs, I encourage you to check it out as it goes VERY in depth and I hope this has answered some of your basic questions and helps you make a choice about what to get!

#Limit8 Event

 

It’s been a WHILE since I made a music video and now I remember why! I love machinema, and I have the utmost respect for people that do it regularly and have great computers, but it is truly a struggle for me! Hopefully once I get a new PC i’ll enjoy it more! In the meantime, look for new videos on Sundays and Thursdays!

This outfit was inspired by Kylie’s in the video for 3 Strikes. It features poses from Foxcity’s latest release at the Limit8 event! Hope you enjoy!

Love & Relationships.

Hooking Up in SL

Relationships are complicated, whether in RL or SL. In my previous Love & Relationships post I gave you some basic tips for dating in SL, but what if you’re not looking to date? What if you just want to hook up or just want a #PicBae?

There’s nothing wrong with keeping your options open. Always remember that. It’s also good to know what you’re getting into ahead of time. Not everyone on the grid is honest, but let karma take care of them and be up front about your own intentions to avoid crazy disagreements.

The main thing to think about is to keep things light and fun… after all this is a game, and hooking up can be the most fun part!

BTW… this isn’t a hook up or #PicBae, this is my actual boyfriend!
P.S. My hairbase didn’t rezz in this pic, and I was really upset! It was just too cute not to post!

#Equal10 Event and Access.

 

Cute Pics with my Bestie taken at The City of Snoh (https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Temptation%20Islands/137/162/25)

Last week was JAM PACKED with events and I was itching to change my look up a bit for fall. I’m still working on the Basics post for my look so be on the lookout for that!

I’ll start with the Access Event! If you didn’t know, you can get early access to the event at 12 AM SLT using their group! This round I was a little disappointed that there were a lot of vendors that weren’t set up at early access, some not even at the time of the event! It was super annoying and unprofessional if we’re being honest. Fatal has a really cute exclusive gift just for group members so don’t forget to grab it! (You can see the gift in this week’s Basics post!)

Moving on to Equal10, this event was so lit! I am always pleasantly surprised with this event. I’m not sure if it’s the creators or just inspiration because they know the event will be packed. One of my favorite items I picked up from equal10 was the Silo hair from Little Bones. The other favorite was THE CUTEST skin by Altier Pepe! Her name is Doja and she looks like Doja Cat. Anyway there’s way too much for me to try to squeeze in one post so check it out for yourself!

Finding Your Look.

I am infamous for changing my look when the wind blows.

With that being said, one of my favorite things to do in SL is finding and creating looks, then taking lots of pictures which I talked about in a previous post!

Every avatar is unique, we all have things we like and looks we see on others we love. The important part of finding a look you love is customization. I am going to talk a lot in this post about custom parts I have, and if you’re interested, i’m happy to do a more in depth post or video on modifications!

Let’s start at the top:

Catwa is the most popular mesh head creator, and the reason she is, is because the layout is simple and easy to use. There are many items created to modify and wear with Catwa as well, which is why it’s a great starter head.

Body of a Goddess:

The mesh body is a highly debated topic on the grid. Decide on a look, and i’ll let you know my opinions of the body for that body type.

Maitreya – Great for Teens, Young Women, or Very Petite Women, best used with thin shapes

Slink Physique, Belleza Isis, EVE – Young, Petite and Average Women

Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya (My Body), eBody – Curvy Women

Shapes are what make you YOU. Once you’ve decided on a body type, the best way to make your look original is your shape. This controls the face, weight, and curves on your avatar. My shape is a custom by my Mom.

I’d love to go more in depth, let me know in the comments or on social media if you’d like to explore more looks! Also let me know if you want an in depth look at my head, body, and shape!
