Blog Poll: How Many Avatars Have You Created?

The beauty of Second Life is the endless creation that is at our fingertips.  I know for me personally, sometimes I get bored and feel the urge to create something new, or need an avatar for a different purpose in Second Life. (No, I don’t mean for sneaking around and spying on people either btw!) While some may use an alt for malicious purposes, often times I think many residents find it fun to create different characters for different experiences or role play opportunities.

For me, I get a big kick out of discovering freebies, great deals on items, and also attempting to be creative by developing an entire new avatar.  I also sometimes just like the peace and quiet of being on an avatar that less people know about.  I can go out and experience a live music event, go out dancing, or hang with a few friends without being bombarded with work related inquiries.

Above, is myself, flanked on each side by my four alt avatars.  Getting this photo wasn’t easy, as I had to log onto 5 separate viewers at the same time!  My poor computer, I’m certain, wanted to kill me!  Most of these avs never see the pixel light of day, but I do on occasion bust them out for photo opportunities, or just to explore or role play with.

This got me curious and I started wondering…how many avatars do people have?  Is it normal to have so many, or do most just have one or two?  Feel free to answer the blog poll below and comment to explain your answer!

Newbie Resource Guide

I’ve finally gotten around to putting together a Newbie Resource Guide for new residents in the Second Life Community. It can be found under my tips & tricks menu.  A huge thank you to all of my great friends on plurk for helping list some of these for me to check out.  I hope this guide helps any new residents that you meet! Feel free to pass it their way and let others know about it.

If you know of anything I’ve missed, or any information that may be inaccurate in the guide, please don’t hesitate to let me know! :) Happy Monday everyone!

Springscape

Have you photographers and bloggers ever had a chance to check out Luna Jubilee’s Windlight Settings?  She has a newer one she released just recently called Springscape, and it’s as lovely as ever!  I had a lot of fun venturing over to the Dimrill Dale sim, which is part of the Calas Galadhon Park sims, and playing with this gorgeous windlight.  If you are in need of some unique and well done windlights Luna’s are certainly worth downloading and experimenting with.

I finally had a chance to venture over to the March Mesh Madness.  Let me just say…IT IS MADNESS on that sim!  It’s jam packed with people, and full nearly all the time.  It is with good reason though that the sim is so full, because nearly every single thing at the event is fantastic.  I had a chance to sneak in (after numerous attempts with the full sim), and picked up this adorable mesh dress from Jane.  She does a great job of always making sure there are demo’s available, and after a quick demo I found the dress fit me perfectly!

I paired the dress with a beautiful necklace set from Caroline’s Jewelry (it comes with earrings that I am not wearing above), that you can currently find at the Disco Deals Bazaar through today.  I believe it ends after the 4th so hurry on over!  Everything at Disco Deals is 250 or less!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! It as usual, went by entirely too fast!

Whore Couture Festival

Another event has made it’s presence here in the Second Life Community.  The Whore Couture Festival is taking place from March 1st through the 31st and features the “best in whore wear”.  If you’ve ever felt like bringing out that wild, skanky side of yours, then now is your chance!  The designer list is expansive and features some great stores, as well as a few I’ve yet to check out before.  The sim is packed with sexy, sleazy, and whore inspired fashion’s to fit a variety of tastes.

I’m wearing the beautifully designed Tortura Dress from Cracked Mirror.  You can find this sexy dress at the festival!  I love the lace, and transparent areas featured on this.  It’s certainly edgy, well made, and something that would go perfect with your sexiest kitten heels.

Make sure you take some time to check out the Whore Couture Festival because there is so much to choose from, as well as a few surprising items that you just may fall in love with.

Donna Flora

I would first like to start this post off by telling you simply how in awe I am of the talent that Squinternet Larnia possesses.  I’ve always enjoyed Squinternet’s store Donna Flora, but never truly took the time to wander the rooms and soak in everything the place has to offer.

I have truly never seen so many amazingly beautiful, unique, and eye catching jewelry pieces all in one room.  Her creations radiate charisma, class, and charm.  So many different styles, colors, jewels, and more line the walls of this great store.  Not only does Donna Flora offer gorgeous jewelry, but striking apparel as well.

This stunning dress is just one of the amazing creations that Miss Larnia has come up with.  I paired it with one of her detailed necklaces, and I truly feel fit to be a queen.

Squinternet, thank you so much for creating such beautifully crafted items here in Second Life.  So many of us are in awe of your talent! I know I certainly look forward to so many more lovely creations to come at Donna Flora.
