We usually hang out and just chat everything. We thought we would start podcasting some of our conversations as a way to engage and reflect our thoughts on various topics related to Second Life from a particular event we shopped to more expanded relevant topics.

More Houseboats Are Coming!

47853360331_dce030a508_k.jpgMore Houseboats Are Coming! by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

If you’ve been waiting for that dream houseboat get ready! According to Patch Linden, in less than 24 hours …40 regions of houseboats are coming! Yes, 40!

46937055495_8ae0006e43_b.jpgSecond Life Map by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

The map shows the regions have been moved into place and are located to the east of the Bellisseria landed regions. As yet there appears to be no causeway and/or bridge leading to this area. So those within the boating community should be delighted. It’s only a short trip via watercraft.

There is still a considerable amount of land that is heavily landscaped with public areas for gathering. Lovely beaches, conversation areas, picnic areas, and cuddle spots are dotted all over them. So get ready, I also imagine there will be some leaving the landed Linden Homes to try for them so you might even get an opening for a parcel if you’re lucky.  F5 is your friend.  Linden Homes are available for premium residents. Check out premium membership details at Second Life.

Linden Living: Moving In

40779447573_226655b1fa_k.jpgMoving Day by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

Hi everyone. So my mailbox is fixed, and I’ve got a proper Linden Home again. Now, comes the fun part, deciding which home style I like, and getting my furniture in.  This has been pretty difficult. I’m leaning very heavily on the Winchester, and currently moving into that one for now.

The biggest issue I see is how to divvy up enough LI for the space so I can have a bit of everything I think I need. I’m very sure I want a kitchen, living room, dining, and outdoor recreation. It’s the upstairs bedroom that is conflicting me, I would like a bedroom as well as a work room which I can use it for both.

46956662414_afa8a83b8a_k.jpgWindow Treatment by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

Initially I decided since I had 5 areas to decorate I would evenly assign LI to each space with a starting point of about 70 LI per space. Seemed simple enough, if I was happy with an area that was still under 70 LI I could reassign additional LI elsewhere or keep as I might want to spawn cars as needed.

This is actually quite a challenge for me considering I’ve lived with nearly whole sims to rez out as much as I please for 10 years. I’ve already started installing a kitchen, and plan on working it out from there.

46956663844_5936e0bd46_b.jpgCoffee Break by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

The Lindens keep teasing us with news that more homes are coming soon. I’ve been watching the map and they certainly are making progress. They’ve also updated to include security orbs, as when they went live the ban lines were ugly and as you can imagine, that just ruined the esthetics here quick. So the solution was to feature security orbs, and there are quite a few rules for them as we don’t want to suddenly find ourselves returned home from the street on a bike ride, or sent home when flying over (personal aircraft are quite popular here). So that should help at least keep my hot tub clean. For more information about the security orbs check the forum announcement from Patch Linden here.

Also, shout out to my fellow neighbors on Bellisseria – keep it weird. The random t-rex, the police chases, broken down buses..ya’ll make my day. But stay out of my hot tub.

Ya know, you’re probably thinking right now, why is does that place have a slurl and not this place? Look, do you see all those stores? I didn’t plan on having to slurl all of them. I certainly didn’t think that out well when thinking ooh I can have an outfit change and take another photo. I haven’t blogged in like 6 months so I’m rusty and over ambitious. But I assure you, all of the above stores can be found in search or marketplace, and if not there they’re closed. I might feel guilty and come back and populate them more but search is right there.

Hot Summer

Lelutka recently released some fun bento items – Delights Cream, and Gum Gum Boom. Perfect summer fun, Gum Gum Boom features chewing gum, bubble option, and customizable HUD with bento animations. For those hot summer days, Delights Cream shown here provide a customizable ice cream cone, with matching bento animations. I love that it also features layer related ice cream, and a napkin to clean up that pesky mess.

New Release at W. Winx & Flair for My Attic ~ My Favorite Things

In collaboration with Sasy Scarborough of Flair, W. Winx has released 3 items for My Attic. My Attic is a themed event that takes place bimonthly. This month’s theme is “My Favorite Things” and the wonderful designers participating have done a wonderful job of creating items that fit that theme for them.
W. Winx - Fairytales Poses & Prop - Vendor Image
One of my favorite things are fairy tales, and in particular the story Queen Cat.  I collect Queen Cat variations, with my favorite being one illustrated by Adrienne Segur.  I included that title when I made the Fairy Tales pose prop to represent my favorite things.  It’s a collection of fairy tale titles, featuring 4 texture themes, and 5 custom made poses.  On top of the books you have two fairy inspired poses, and on the sides as book ends a lean and a push, plus another fairy princess pose in front of the books.  This item could be anything from a pose prop to a fun thing to stick at the back of your garden, I did try to make sure when worked out my colors that it would suit a nature environment if that’s just the case, which is perfect with its land impact of 5.

W. Winx & Flair - Papier De Mode - Vendor Image

Another favorite thing of mine, are books and journals, and paper, combined with a love of fashion editorial photography and fashion ad campaigns. I created this Papier de mode pose prop that’s simple yet dramatic. Useful for lingerie, fashion forward, to formal wear. I’ve provided two versions, one with printed words on some of the pages, and another that is a simple paper texture. Included are 6 custom made poses, and it features a land impact of 16.

W. Winx & Flair - WinxBox - Les Diamonds - Vendor Picture

The Les Diamond WinxBox is symbolic of another love of mine, Kpop- especially Kpop videos.  I’m a Gen X’er who was there that magic day when MTV started it’s broadcast, and played it’s first video. I was glued permanently to MTV for 8 years. The short world of a video, and the art of video making with its lyric based imagery and concepts has always been a favorite, which I thought I had outgrown or grown bored with until I discovered Kpop. Sasy and I inspired by Kpop littered a WinxBox with diamonds as props, and added a fun modern background in two colors, black and white. A pole on a diamond for a little added variation, and 7 custom poses. Sasy wanted to name it Diamonds Are Forever, but all I could think of when I saw it was Les Diamonds a nod to the Les Girls, from The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

My Attic’s latest session runs January 21st through 31st. The theme for this session is ‘My Favorite Things’ and the designers, and guest designers participating have created beautiful items based on what that theme means to them. A selection of fashion, hair, poses, accessories and props available. I hope you will join us for this event at The Deck. All items will be $95L for the duration of the event, and will then go to regular store prices afterwards. Stop by My Attic to see the many items that are available.     Teleport: My Attic

Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland

Sasy installed an ice skating rink at The Deck, so thankfully The Secret Store had me covered.  These Mint Polka Dot Ice Skates which are currently available at The Arcade and my Sarah Coat Dress in mint currently at Collabor88 are offerings for December. The skates are well done in mesh, and come in a cute variety of styles, and feature an AO as well. Play the gatcha machines at The Arcade for your chance to score this pair.  Click here to see the other skates, and items available at The Arcade.  The Sarah Coat Dress has a variety of colors and is a perfect little feminine coat for the first snow.  The Sarah Coat Dress is available in 8 colors, click here to see more about Collabor88 this month.

I’ve paired my The Secret Store goodies with Izzie’s Mesh Ear Muffs in a matching mint, they’re cute and available in 20 colors to mix and match into your winter wardrobe. I’m also wearing Izzie’s Lucie skin in Sunkissed, with raspberry lipstick, and silver eyeshadow.  I love that she has the cutest freckles, and on layer for body and face. I’m also wearing Izzie’s White Tights layered under my leggings.  TuttiFruitti made my leggings, and they are available in a variety of colors, I am wearing Color Pack 3 which features a variety of pastel colors via HUD.  I love the detail of texture on these.  I’m also wearing Fishy Strawberry’s Faux Fur Stole in white, it’s mesh and available in a variety of natural and colored furs. I felt it was perfect to keep warm with while skating. Adam n Eve recently released glove appliers for the Slink Avatar Enhancement Hands, these are the Broderie Anglais featuring a delicate eyelet pattern.  Also available at Adam n Eve leather, and opera gloves, perfect for winter, and formal wear. I’m wearing Wasabi Pills Mila hair in Gingerbread, its a cute short bobbed hairstyle, and I love this shade.

Flowers In My Attic

Flowers In My Attic

My Attic just opened for the September 2013, the theme for this edition is Flowers In My Attic.  An inspirational way to close out the summer season and move into autumn. The inspiration translated into items at My Attic is interesting across the board.  Baiastice released this beautiful mesh corset shown here in Rose. The detailing, and embellishments are refined and classic. My rabbit head mask from Picnic, which is featured at Designers United 5, it’s a beautiful little thing, it also comes with a male version, and a stand version for home decor.

Adorkable @ Pose Fair 2013

Pose Fair 2013 has begun and there are so many great stores involved. Adorkable has several new sets of poses available, I’m featuring two poses from them. Adorkable is a unique pose maker who includes a mirrored version of each pose. This photo was done using Grace 1 and Grace 1m. In theory I could have created this photo by mirror myself in photo editing software, however, what if I wanted to do a location shot, with two avatars….mirrored poses for the win. I like the idea of mirrored poses as many times I will want to use a pose but because of what I am wearing it just doesn’t suit the post, but the mirror will. Check out the other pose sets at Pose Fair 2013.

Twin Grace

I’m wearing Doll COCO’s mesh ball-jointed doll avatar. This avatar body is free and comes in two skin tones, Snow, and Cacao. You can choose from a number of unique mesh heads as a separate purchase for a custom look, as well as mesh clothing, and costumes specifically made for the doll. She also has accessories like hats, helmets, even bat wings, animated insect wings, and monster feet are available. Join her free group and click the vendor at the store to get your starter body. The body has several body options, with or without lingerie, and ‘smooth’ option with no genital details, and a default version with nipple areolas and full genitals. After purchasing a Head for the body, you can wear it in place of the White Cap that tops the doll body. The head also includes a wearable teardrop, and a head with closed eyes. The dress comes with two necks in the skin tones, I didn’t need them, and the boots with two skin color options. I removed my doll feet to wear them.

For this photo I am wearing Doll COCO’s gift Rabbit Avatar. This rabbit looks so serious, it’s just adorable. Its a free gift, right next to another free gift of Wizard of Oz themed mesh characters, and a mesh Dorothy avatar. This rabbit also comes with a camouflage jacket. I’m showing off the cute Whimsy 2m pose from the Whimsy post set. I loved how even more defiant the bunny looks with it.

PS if you are looking for the gift Bat Wings, they are located at this location.   This is also were the new bodysuits, slip dress, insect wings, etc are.  Careful there is a body priced at $450 here, I believe its the newer model.  If you are looking for the clothing, more heads, and free body, rabbit, and wizard of oz characters they are at the DOLL COCO location I listed in my credits instead.

Erare Project

Erare Syrene Flora 1592x2408

The creators of Celoe and LeLutka recently released these stunning mesh mermaids called The Erare Project.  The mermaids consist of a variety of body parts to transform you from human to siren.  There are eight in total, each more beautiful than the next. Flora is a lovely bottle green that provides camouflage.  Fury is predominately red, with some tones of gold and orange and stands out brilliantly. Pretense is a darker mermaid with lavender, midnight, and prussian blues that mimic the deeper depths. Mercy is soft and lovely tones of subdued pinks, corals, and golds.  Ghost is muted tones of coral, nude, sea green, and pale gold. Glory are muted, and deep tones of red, gold, and browns. Spire is a beautiful black, that really stands out dramatically. Foam blends into the waves, with silvery blues, and muted lavender.

Erare Composite 7a

The hair is stunning, the concept is incredible, and it moves with perfection. Included are mesh eyes that are eerie and beautiful.  They’re modifiable so you can custom fit them.  There is a layer to add a shimmer to your exposed skin, and another for your torso that is the main torso color with added detail to the breast bone area. There are two types of breast adornment, one more modest than the other. I’m wearing the full version.  There are also several other mesh fin and kelp attachments for various looks, in my photo I am wearing all of them. Mesh hand/claws give a nice look, and give the impression you could really grasp a fish, or defend yourself with them. The tail is very long, giving a slim elongated form balanced out nicely by the caudal tail fin. The tail itself moves nicely with the body, and comes with tail angle HUD that allows you to move it in a variety of degrees to suit your mood.  They’ve also included an AO for movement with lovely animations, it’s modifiable allowing you to customize it further if you own more mermaid animations. Various parts are rigged to move perfectly with the body as need, others are left unrigged to allow you to modify them for a perfect fit.  This design was not only beautifully executed, but well thought out. The Syren’s are available on a barge in the waters just off of the city area of Mayfair.  Nearby them is a group gift of a lovely necklace made with them in mind.

If you are looking for more ways to add to your merlife, some of my favorite finds over the years are Kami-Hitoe’s Dramatic Seas AO2.  This ao has been my basic mermaid ao for years. It features lovely movement, ground sits, and my favorite hover, and crawl animations. Sala Snook, the designer at Kami-Hitoe makes a variety of mermaid ao’s, and items, all are worth checking out. My most amusing item from Kami-Hitoe is the mermaid fish bowl. Another favorite mermaid resource I’ve used is Creative Insanity’s Mermaid AO, it has beautiful ‘stands’ that move your body about in a very wide range. I have used both of the ao’s with the Erare mermaid and they work perfectly with them.  Check around the grid for more mermaid items, if you are looking for some cool additions to your own mermaid spot try SL’s Marketplace  for decor, homes, sea life, waves, rocks, surrounds, and plants. There is a wide variety of items that would be perfect to create your mer-paradise.  If you want to play, I recommend Mittandraland Mermaid Haven…watch out for the nets and mines. Thanks to Nei Ruffino aka `ToolKitten from DeviantArt whose stock images, stock_ocean_2 & stock_ocean_6,  I used for these photos.  I also used a variety of free textures for overlays etc from Insight Designs.
