Sometimes I stumble across the strangest yet most beautifully done places! This morning I was looking for a spot to showcase this gorgeous Gulabi Helica Skirt and Rossa Top, both in Sky Blue, when I saw a place called Jack the Ripper Scene in my search. Of course I had to see this! It is not a large place, but the fog, the period buildings, streets and props make it a jackpot of photographic opportunities. I think next time I will dress the part and maybe run across Jack when I do.
I love visiting the Opera and other musical events in Second Life. Today I went to the Royal Opera and Gardens and watched a Viking Opera! It was stunning and so well choreographed! The costumes, the music, the props and backdrops were beautiful. I thoroughly enjoyed the show.
I worked a very long, late shift today so to relax and wind down I decided to hit up the Dark Side event. There are $10L gifts at almost every booth, so of course, I snatched up a bunch! I am wearing Pink Ice DS3 3 Color Goth Nails for $10L, Tameless Hair Zabrina in Brown for $10L, TRS Lolita Dress Red Lace $10L and the pose is Kokoro Poses Yori for you guessed it, $10L. All available at the Dark Side event.
I decided to show these items off at Stillwater Bay, an interesting small town located on Genesis4. There are several restaurants and coffee shops, a church, police station and shops to explore. I found a coffee shop that gives free coffee! What more could I ask for?
I love it when Blueberry has a sale! I tried to get in, but it was full, so I popped in next door to Just Because and walked over. The first thing I bought was this amazing Liza Corset Dress for $250L, not half price but it is new and I just loved it in Color Extra 6. Then to wear with it I got these gorgeous Mili Boots in Tan. You can wear with or without the stockings and the stockings have a full color hud. $125L, yay half price! I picked up several other half off items while I was there too. I think the deer are impressed.
Yesterday I got a notecard on second life photography. I was so excited, it has several phototool settings for different types of photography, architectural, landscapes, portraits, etc. These two photos were taken in the same spot but with different settings so in one photo the barn appears very close when in fact it is far away as in the second photo. Whoo!
I decided to practice my new found knowledge at Open Latte Cafe Bubbles sim. It is very pastoral, with fields, a barn, farm animals and equipment as well as a cozy coffee house. Lots of photo opportunities as well as a feeling of overall relaxation. And I like the music too….it helps with the ambiance when there is good music.
One of my favorite stories as a child was Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass. I read them until the bindings were worn and cracked and the pages were dog-eared and scuffed. The story, the poetry and illustrations feed the imagination and leave one wanting more. I was so pleased to find a Wonderland right here in Second Life!
This is Shenanigan’s Wonderland. As you arrive you walk through a hedge of red roses guarded by cards. Follow the darling pave stones and explore every nook and cranny. There is a hedge maze, teacup ride and of course a tea party! Sit in the throne and be the Red Queen. Be careful what you eat or drink, this is after all….Wonderland.
I am wearing Gigi by Layla. It comes with the top, shorts and laced boots. Not only is it comfy and stylish, but has a strip menu too. $500L on the marketplace.
I have been so busy in both my real and other real lives I hadn’t visited many shopping events lately. So today I bit the bullet and started hopping! First stop Collabor88 where I picked up this gorgeous D!va hair called Ellie for $188L. ( I bought so many hairs at Collabor88, but how can anyone resist $188L!) Next stop Cosmopolitan where I fell in love with the Tori Toricelli top and shorts, $249L each. The shoes are from Hucci, Izki Sandal in Moonglow. I visited the marketplace and the mainstore and was unable to find them. But Hucci shoes are awesome and there are lots of other styles in Moonglow.
To show off this cute outfit I went somewhere I’d never been, Silent. Put your windlight on estate and set your draw to 300, then enjoy the bright colors and beautiful artwork. There are many places here to take interesting pictures and I thoroughly enjoyed my visit.
