Vows on the edge of 2010

Last night at 21.00 GMT was the moment for Cat and Petrov; their SL marriage. I was invited and after major SL trouble in which I appeared as a noob on my laptop screen 30 minutes before the ceremony started... arghhhhh, I managed to be at the venue just in time wearing all parts of my fancy Gingko LeeZu dress. immediately took out my camera  and started taking pictures. I had too little time to adjust the light settings but pff at least all people present had rezzed.

Of course there was the ubiquitous lag, but hey who cares as long as the atmosphere is ok, which it was. 
Cat is a beautiful bride in her lovely Son!a Luxury Fashion dress. I loved the lace bodice, so nicely made. Notice the bridal bouquet of white and pink roses: the work of Cerberus of G*Field, she makes the best roses in SL!
Petrov is wearing the awesome suit and shoes of Redgrave. Doesn't he look handsome after his remake? 

Andy accompanied me to the wedding. He looks smashing in his suit, which he was able to find somewhere tucked away in his 3,5 (or is it 4?) years old closet. Although finding appropriate shoes was even more difficult as they were all still boxed. 

Walking together in SL ain't always easy.....

As Andy said: "This had all the trappings of a real world wedding and more.....like the lag effect that propelled the groom down the aisle ahead of his bride....and then left him stumbling over the flower decorations".  

dancing the night away
Wish you lots of happiness Cat and Petrov.
And to all who read this blog entry a SUPER 2011!

Zaara sweaters and a bottle....

Yesterday my friend Kooky showed me the Abranimations Mocap Drunk AO, which is a Xmas gift and comes with drunk AO and Bottle of wine with drink animation. Is too funny and I had so much fun wearing it. It looks sooo real.

Anyway I decided to blog the awesome Xmas gift of Zaara: a sweater male and female, in resp. green and red. Zaara makes awesome clothes so yeah also these nice sweaters fit super, they come with a collar/shawl and sleeve prims.  
Of course I had to adjust the sleeves of the male one a bit, but I do wanna show you coz it's a super sweater. I love the wrinkles, aww they both look so real. Thanks Zaara for your kind gift!

Wearing also a Xmas gift I picked up at the Rumor sim: the CiCo Uggs powdered, wow they are cute and fit super.

Happy holidays

After returning from my super RL birthday trip to Lisbon and Barcelona I logged into SL and have been soo busy with downloading new viewers, hunting/unpacking Xmas gifts and many more useless things. Yeah sooo many Xmas and hunt gifts .... //me sighs. Some are really awesome, some are crap but hey they're gifts right.

And then there are the many SL holiday greeting cards from friends I received, (hugs, thx so much!), buy presents, pack them and make a holiday greeting myself. Well here it is, I posted it last nite: snowqueen Dido (wearing part of LaVie Advent Calender gift #15)  
Wish you all my dear readers a merry Xmas (don't eat too much and no furry animals like rabbits coz they are too cute) and a smashing, happy, healthy, wealthy 2011!

Christmas girl Claire

My friend told me that some plurkers have been complaining about me using demo Tuli Claire skin in my blog entry called 'Mwah'. Well to be honest I don't see the problem, however dear plurkers ... as I did not like the blog entry anyway I replaced it with this Christmas girl outfit AND guess what YEAH today after ample consideration I bought the Claire brunette skin.

Price is L$ 1000 and can only be bought by members of the Skin Addict group. For that amount of money you get: 12 different make up options (6 freckled), 8 different lipsticks, several cleavage options and a shape. Not bad, so a sincere thanks to Tuli for being so generous.

Second Life is all about emotions. Well nothing new about that, but I am again fully aware of this. Is it bad? Nope, but pfff it's intense to discuss about one's feelings, differences in character and deep thoughts (some safely tugged away), in chat and in a non-native tongue. Most important thing: you cannot see nor hear the other person. So you can only interpret his/her emotions by analyzing the text he/she types, the silences there are (no text), the amount of mistakes made, etc 

Sometimes I wonder why am I doing this, why not keep to myself, behind my safely self built wall and shop, dance, explore and blog about it ... After all I did that for a long long time over the past 1,5 year; i.e. lead a quiet SL, apart from a few lovers....

However, since I met Matt 2 months ago we have become very close. Now that means a totally different SL for me. Now it's difficult not to discuss certain issues that come up and I cannot tp away when I am touched, hurt, bored, or whatever. Reason: I care. 
In the beginning I was sure, after having several BF's in SL, I would do it differently, but nope I guess I have only one way of playing in SL and that's being me, including the usual drama, but isn't that always a part of (second)life.

There are already too many blogs, movies, video's about this topic 'Relationships in SL', but I did wanna share my thoughts with you, my diary

My avatar and me

Today I visited the IDFA (International Documentray Film Festival Amsterdam) and the first documentary I saw (of a total of 5) was .... 'My Avatar and Me' (big smile); a Danish creative documentary-fiction film made by Bente Milton – in cooperation with Mikkel Stolt which tells the story of a guy that enters Second Life and the influence on his RL. 

I loved it and OMG the things happening to the lead actor were so familiar to all in SL. And the poses, the dances, the drama arghh I recognized a lot. 

If you are interested visit their website or go and see it in Amsterdam at IDFA. Well that is if you are living near ;-)

Dikke kus

Synopsis (I copied from the website for all you lazy people):
Mikkel Stolt - is a troubled and unsuccessful documentary filmmaker, who decides to create a new identity, and join the pioneers and settlers in the virtual world “Second Life” on the other side of his computer screen. He chooses the name Mike Proud for his “avatar” and starts off with a typical off-the-shelf standard body.
Shortly after his arrival, a mysterious and influential woman named Helena picks him up and takes him under her wing. Helena gives Mike a complete makeover, and turns him into a sophisticated avatar, equipped with all the animations he needs to interact with the most advanced users of Second Life.

Mikkel is very attracted to Helena, and extremely curious to find out more about her, but she refuses to meet him in real life and her true identity remains a mystery.
Helena introduces Mike to Rob, a professional filmmaker who works for BBC in his real life. They become friends and decide to go into business together. The business thrives as Helena uses her in-world influence to pave the way for Mike’s career.................... read the rest of the story on the website of 'My Avatar and Me'

Pig Sale and D!va Celebration hair Chisato

Pig is moving to another sim (Lloyd) in the nearby future, coz their present location is being sold. Therefore some items at Pig are being permanently retired and prized down to only 25 L$ (fatpacks 99 to 150 L$)! Furthermore anything black and grey is 50 L$. So hurry over there!
I could not resist to buy the fatpack (150 L$) of my fav cardigan 'Ladies like flowers' (wearing in mud here).  
Showing you the D!va celebration gift (this time for over 8000 group membership), Chisato hair in 4 colors (black amber, cat's eye, onyx and topaz), each with 2 styles (with or without Forelock). Hey I love this hair!

Couldn't resist these new Tiburon YS&YS ankle boots and combined them with the LeeZu Madison pants.
Initially I also wanted to buy the new LeeZu Maria jacket, but (sobs) .... I could not find a color to match my newly acquired Madison pants. So I took a deep dive into my closet and came up with my 'falling leaves' Pig cardigan and a Miel tulip tank top to match my new pants and boots. 
It was fun, however, to visit the refurbished LeeZu shop; I hadn't been there for a while. LeeZu is one of my first fav shops in SL. I bought a lot of her clothes over the past 3,5 years and it was fun to recognize many items when strolling around the place. Mmm, maybe she will add a brown Maria jacket to the collection, who knows.

Spencer Museum of Art

Yep Smiling and me we went exploring and here's the result. Another awesome place constructed by Cutea Benelli and Blotto Epsilon is no doubt worthwhile a visit. So for all those who did not yet discover: go and be enchanted. 
On the Museum's Second Life island this organic architecture was constructed by a team of the Spencer Museum of Art, part of the Kansas university. Visit their website for more info about the Petrovsky fluxa cluster of devices that grow, assembling themselves from modular units, only to blow apart and rebuild themselves. Sooo take care of your head coz there are constantly parts of the flux falling down. 

Each time they rebuild differently so the place is constantly changing. There is much to explore here! Smiling and me we had fun watching the flying sheep, sitting on the pink moving chair, jumping on the many scattered poses and sipping our wine in the little cafe. And... there is much more to discover. 
Be enchanted, here's your taxi to Spencer Museum of Art

returned there this evening ... too much to see

Tears of a Clown

Today was a weirdo day for me. My RL best friend is sick, very sick and that influenced my SL a lot of course.
So no words but pics; i.e. the results of a hunt I did to put my mind on something totally utterly completely different: the Bad Juju Happy Birthday Hunt 

There are 17 Birthday packages (blue) hidden throughout the first floor of the store! The prize is a special Birthday clown outfit! Well what you see in the picture is the result of the hunt ;-)

League's Amber and Taylor

  Amber Medium Feline (demo version)

Taylor Sunkiss BlackIce

Hey I am a big fan of League skin, for sure I am. So of course I rushed over to the League store the minute I learned about the new Amber skin and got myself lots of demo's. For sure I wasn't the only one, pff lot's of lag.

Sighs well you know... is it me, coz I just don't see that much difference between my League Taylor skin and this new Amber skin? 
Yep, make-up is different, lips slightly differ and the eyesbrows are lighter but the Feline version of the light Taylor skin has too. So, what to do? Doubts have spread all over me and my wallet...... All advice is welcome!

pssst I think I will buy this Amber skin anyway .... shhhht
