Double Skulls

I started working on this photo on Mother’s Day. I was intrigued with the idea of a bad assed mother/daughter duo, walking in the forest at night time. Maybe it’s because of all of the GoT posts on Facebook and Plurk that influenced me to do something as well (no I don’t watch the show).

United Colors really outdid themselves with this set at Fameshed and Equal 10 this month. There are lots of styling combinations you can do. For instance, if you look at the bodysuits, one has long sleeves, and the sleeves can be hidden as you can see on the “daughter”.

Chop Zuey – Sub Umbra Floreo

What happened to Second Life Wedding Expos? It seems like in my earlier years in Second Life, some organization saw to organize one every year. I even took pictures at a fashion show for an expo once. You got to see a number of dresses (which can come in handy when you want to know which stores make nice dresses), decor, jewelry, and the like.

I checked out a few wedding venues to see where I could showcase this latest jewelry set from Chop Zuey. I still think the best venue is the one that you create for yourself, but hey – I could be wrong.

Ghee at the 2016 Hipster Fair

Have you been to the Hipster Fair yet? If not, today would be a great day to visit – take advantage of the extra day we have today, and do some shopping! Ghee has a nice range of hipster and indie styled clothing for under 200L at the fair. So if you are looking to add some pizzazz to your wardrobe, you can accomplish this with a pair of boots, a colorful scarf, or patterned pants.

I am wearing the Carrie crochet tunic, which is exclusive to the Hipster Fair, and only 75L!  I paired the Etta gray boots and gray Hipster scarf to go with it.

Are you a Second Life fashionista?

I decided to make a basic guideline of what you should have as a fashionista. For those who are in specific hobbies and occupations in SL, not all of the items will apply to you. I could talk for hours on each point that I have mentioned here. My point in making this list is if you don’t already do or have these things, get to it! If you already do, feel free to share this with someone.

Fabulously Free no more

Update 11/06/15: I just saw yesterday that the FabFree inworld group as well as its blog will still be available. Check out this post from them to learn about the upcoming changes to the group.

I saw on Plurk yesterday that the inworld group Fabulously Free in SL was closing. Even though I had left the group some time ago, I still feel sad about it closing. Why, if I had already moved on from it, you ask?

When I first started Second Life, I was a shopping fiend…at all the freebie malls. I had started getting into joining groups, and one day I saw someone with a Fab Free group tag activated. I joined the group, and I found so many quality freebie items. Like, they just put the item in the group notices for everyone to get. The generosity of the designers blew me away. And for those who didn’t put items in the notices, there were landmarks to their shops to get their gifts. Fab Free introduced me to many stores in Second Life, when people had no problems going to the main store to shop.

 

I had taken this picture in July, and didn’t know how to incorporate it until now. Go figure…

Do you have an About.me page?

Hey guys! I know this topic comes up every so often. But due to the growing use of social media for Second Life, I feel that it’s still relevant. It can also serve as a reminder for people who have it, and forget to update. So, what is About.me, and why should you have a page?

Make a personal page and inspire people to connect with you.

About.me is a place where you can list all of your social media places in one location. In addition, you can give basic as well as background info on yourself. This comes in handy because with so many places that SL’ers hang out, I sometimes lose track where I have actually joined. It also can be a way to deter impersonators from stealing your online identity. If it’s not listed on about.me, then chances are the “new” account is not you.

This first second is a brief intro to who I am. What I like about this is that people can see my latest blog posts, and click to read them if they so choose. And at the bottom section is a list of all of my social media sites lol. I have more for Monica than I do for real life – fact!

The second part is one of the more recent additions – the backstory. This is optional to fill out, but it provides a history of sorts to what you have done in your life.  In SL I have two resumes – one specifically for fashion modeling and one that covers my general activities, including blogging. This info comes in handy when people want to know your experience – even if it’s just how many feeds your blog is on.

There are ways you can interact with others through complimenting. You can send a number of compliments to show your interest in a person’s profile. Also, you can put people in collections. I have several collections that I add profiles to from time to time.

If this sounds intriguing to you, why not come join me on about.me? If you already have an account, perhaps now is a good time to update your information.
