A New Skin for a New Me

…well, not so much a new me per se. But you know how I am when it comes to making significant changes to my avatar’s appearance.

:Last summer, Glam Affair had made an announcement about not only their new build, but their new skins. They also updated their logo as well.

Self Reflection

Hey guys! After the sale at Merch where I was able to get the fur coat that I have been wanting for a while, I got some inspiration to take some photos. I have a friend who takes exceptional photos, and he has a certain style in taking his photos. So today, I tried to find my own, intimate style in taking photos. But first I’ll show you the other stuff that I got from Merch.

Waiting for Someone

I decided to go out for dinner tonight. There was a trendy steakhouse across town, so I decided to check it out. Some people may think that it’s weird to have dinner alone, but I didn’t mind. Besides, I tend to get perks like getting drinks for free. One time I had an entire meal comped by a stranger who left his phone number with the waiter. With my busy schedule, it’s hard to meet up with friends on a regular basis. Come to think of it, they are busy too…

Game Over

I was having a discussion with a friend regarding using proper lighting in Second Life, especially when it comes to using items with materials.

Materials can bring shine to the outfit, because the way light reflects off of it. The best way to bring that out is to always make sure that the “Advanced Lighting Model” (ALM) is enabled. If you are using a higher graphics setting, then ALM is set automatically.

This outfit from Virtual Diva is a good example of how materials can enhance an outfit. Enjoy! 🙂

Spring @ Arden Pointe

Hey guys! If you haven’t noticed, we are now in the Spring season (at least the Northern Hemisphere is!). I am looking forward to longer periods of sunlight myself. One thing that I plan to do this spring is to visit more scenic sims and take pictures. Lately I have relied a lot on backdrops. I wanted to gain more experience in taking photos in more of a studio setting and learn how to play with lighting. I think I have done well with that. So, it’s back to taking pictures on location ^^

Major Living

Hey guys! How have you been? Even though I know February is a short month, it just FEELS shorter, you know? Last time I remember thinking about the month was right before Valentine’s Day. And now here it is, almost at the end of the month. This month I have started to slowly get back engaged into Second Life. Thank you to everyone who was concerned about me ^^ It’s funny because when we were talking, they would mention that they, too were taking a break or RL was keeping them from being in SL as much. But I guess because they are used to seeing me on, it was different when we kept missing each other.

I have noticed from social media (the bit that I have been on this month) is that there are a number of people who are having a rough time (or should I say continue to have because I noticed this in January, too). It’s sad because we can’t do much to help them except to support them emotionally. And let’s not give them a hard time because they can’t maintain their regular routine.
