How time flies when …

Wondering what the month has done for many, for me it’s been quite the adventure on the Grid. Almost every day that I logged in, the Grid was booming with all kinds of events. Fantasy Faire, Sci FiCon and of course the famous “Cut the Lindens Hair”

Altho many of those events are nice to go to, my favorite time was when I could just lay down in a chair and enjoy the nice peace and quietness of the waves just hitting onto the beach.

In next month’s episode we’ll see if that chair to the right will be filled once vacation time hits for the people around the word.

Easter came early this year

Just when you think you have so much time to shop in Secondlife, Easter comes around and sweeps you off your place. This year’s Easter was interesting since there were a lot of stores that decided to do something extra after 2 years of hardship.

Luckily this year I came prepared and had already asked someone to make something special for a dear friend of mine. But what did I get for myself this year, I really wanted to at least change 1 thing more on my body before I throw out my hair and skin from back in the days.

So onward to the store where I bought my skin, only to find out they had completely redone their store which also meant that my original skin (read 2017) was no longer an option. Bummer but at least I was able to find a skin tone that looks almost the same as my original one.

Throwing some color

“Where did I leave all those paintballs … I wish my brain wasn’t this hazy at times”

When I heard about the event that Zaara was going to be hosting, I had to think back about the early days of Secondlife. Your hair getting stuck in your butt, region crossing that would eat you “alive” and of course the long waiting times when a region was filled to the brim with people that wanted to be the first to get an item that a store had put out.

Luckily this year Zaara was throwing an amazing party for those to wanted to celebrate Holi, a two-day Hindu festival that originates in India. Her region was turned into an amazing place complete with the paintballs and the water pistols who we sadfully weren’t able to use. At the end of the event I managed to take Monica to a spot in the Store that allowed us to sit down and relax.

What have I done

“No, this isn’t fitting your avatar” as I look through all those Marketplace listings that are clearly not for Belleza Jake.

Another day has started and it’s almost time to go to the yearly “Hug a Linden” event, I don’t want to look the same way as I did last year. So onward to the Marketplace to find a decent outfit that doesn’t make me look like “Popeye the Sailorman” and definitely not like “Ironman”

There’s so many items that would look good on you” I hear in my ear when I am looking for a simple outfit that I would wear without feeling that I am playing dress-up for a fancy event. Finally my eye falls on a simple outfit that looks like you just came home from school but doesn’t scream “Jock”

The Journey begins

“Well, after a long period of time … it’s finally come to this day. The 8th of January 2022 is when my life changed”

This could have been the start of a long roleplay story but in reality it’s the beginning of my journey as a Mesh person. Many people have wondered how I got to this point in my SecondLife and asked me to document the journey.

“Hi, my name is Johan and I am now a Mesh person” would be the best first introduction when I met you on the 8th of January. Earlier that day I was pointed to the Belleza blog in which it mentioned that Jake, their male mesh body was on sale. Curious as I was teleported to the store and saw that it was nice looking and even came with a huge discount so my finger hovered over the buy button for about 1 second.

“Belleza Jake has been delivered to your inventory” the message showed on my screen, what have I started ….

In the upcoming blogs we will see how I find clothing all over Secondlife, maybe even find a mesh head that fits my shape. I wish to extend a big thanks to Monica Querrien for allowing me to document this through her blog.

Old Meets New

Hey everyone! I was standing in The Bearded Guy’s store, and I was able to get 8 backdrops while I was shopping weekend sales and looking around the store. How did I do it? When you join their group, every 2 minutes everyone who has the group tag activated has a possibility of winning. I think it’s great 🙂 So, I have two items that I have blogged in the past….
