My Visit to Sansar!

Hey guys! I just got word not too long ago that Sansar was now in open beta! Strawberry Singh has a lot of useful information on Sansar – I recommend watching the videos before downloading the viewer. The avatar and camera controls video is very useful – too bad I didn’t watch beforehand!

As you can see, Sansar is similar to Second Life in that people still haven’t learned to move off the landing point  😀

Does Anyone Have a Landmark?

Picture this. It’s the first day of a new round at event X. Your group chats are filled with people asking for landmarks for event X. Someone gives them the SLurl for the event. “Oh no, I need a landmark for my HUD to work.” They need to know where the event is, and they have it – but it’s not good enough for their HUD. Now, when you look at Seraphim, there are a ton of events happening at any time. Since August rolls in tomorrow,  I am going to do all of you high maintenance people a favor….

Has Second Life Modeling died?

Hey guys! I think I may have to start blogging in the mornings because otherwise I cannot stay in this hot room for long to get much of anything done…smh.

I saw on Facebook a video that Crista Wellens had made regarding the state of fashion modeling in Second Life. It is the first episode of her venture into vlogging, and I thought it started off with a bang. She makes a statement in saying that “modeling as we know it in Second Life is dead”, which is enough to stir up some emotion in those who are professional models in SL.

I was challenged by someone to do a reaction blog to this video, so…challenge accepted!

Some Thoughts on Commitment

Hey guys! This has been a busy month for me. Yesterday The Fashion Loft had its first fashion show, and it was a success. Considering the fact that there were several events before and after our show, I was happy to see that we had at max just under 40 people at the sim. Since I got a lot of positive feedback from the last time I shared my thoughts, I thought I would share my sentiments on my recent experience.

Are you making yourself feel tired without knowing it?

On Thursday (March 23) I attended a workshop on self -esteem at Model’s Workshop. A good portion of the workshop centered around us analyzing several holograms created by Janosh.
“Janosh’s work is based on Sacred Geometry, which is a code language that your subconscious understands. It has helped thousands of people to change their behavior and beliefs and find their purpose in life. ”

We were asked to pick which one(s) we found most interesting or resonated with us. After we picked a drawing, we were then told what it meant. The hologram that I picked spoke to “Release“. The affirmation that went with it was “I let go of everything that restricts my growth.” I felt the hologram resonated with me because it reminded me of something from biology, and was intriguing. If you look on the website, they have a number of holograms, so I am sure one of them will “speak” to you as well.

New Profile Pic!

Hey guys! I am sure that some of you have noticed that I switched over to wearing a mesh head around the end of last year. After Bento came out, I felt awkward not wearing a mesh head when everyone around me were happy with the new Bento heads and seemed to adapt fairly easily to it. Even though I wasn’t a huge fan, I started wearing my Kori head from Catwa just so I could start getting used to things. You can see those photos towards the end of the year…one day I just went, “Eff it!” and started wearing my head.

After a good friend gifted me the Catya bento head from Catwa in January, I used the shape that I was working on for the past month to help finalize my shape. I do not like the fact that some face pixels are missing in the demo. It’s hard to get an accurate feel of the head unless you make the plunge and buy the head. Some people may sneeze at ~$20 USD, but I am not one of them. I do plan on getting a Lelutka head later this year, because I liked that one as well.

My Rez Day – 7 years in Second Life

I’m not sure why it seems harder to make this blog post for this rez day. Maybe because for some reason, 7 years in SL is a huge deal for me. I think it’s because when you do something for 7 years, that means that you have put significant time and effort into it. I think the next major rez day will be  10 years in Second Life (if I make it that long). 

I will say that I wonder how Sansar will impact my time in Second Life – I may not even want to stay in SL for whatever reason. There were people who were so gung ho about Sansar last year that it seemed like they were ready to leave SL right that instant. Also, there is real life to consider. I have seen plenty of times where changes to RL work, family, health etc. keeps people out of Second Life. I hope that I will always be able to make my own choices, and to leave SL on my terms if the day ever came to pass.

Do you celebrate your rez day? If you do, what do you normally do for it? If not, why not?
