i hear a distant voice

I am not the kind of person who likes to look like or be one thing all of the time. I need to change every now and again, and always be able to go back to my previous look if I want to. (Which is why I can never settle on a hair cut, maybe?) I have many different outfits, hair colours, and avatars which I like to be every now and again to break up the monotony. This is Second Life, after all, and if I want to be a cat, all I need to do is put on a folder!

With that in mind, I have someone I would like you all to meet today.

This is Tatsurou. He is one of my male avatars, although not just a male shape. Tatsurou is actually a separate account that I made around the time I made Ai. I don’t have many items on him, since I have male avatars on Ai’s account and tend to collect them there, but he is close to my heart. I intend to start collecting on him as well and using him in a few of my posts.

As with all of my shapes, he is a custom from Emi. He doesn’t have much on him inventory wise right now, but I did pick up something today that I’m excited about getting totally free.

The Envious group gift for guys in March is this mesh skull shirt. Coming in five standard sizes, Tatsurou fits into extra small. The texture is great and I’m excited to see Envious making mesh for men, since I love their women’s clothing so much.

I have yet to look at the rest of their men’s section in detail, but I’m sure I’ll find a lot of really nice things I’m going to have to purchase, and unfortunately purchase in double. (So not looking forward to that!)

I’m really at a loss on where else to find quality men’s items at this time. I’m just not sure which shops cater to men, and especially at prices I can afford. If anyone has any suggestions for me, please, leave me a comment!

Oh no, it’s another blog meme!

I intended to make an outfit post today (which I might still do that a little later), but I saw something in Strawberry Singh’s blog that called out to me. Procrastination. My favourite activity! I can definitely take a little procrastination to help me with that inventory organization I am desperately trying to avoid.

Without (much further) ado:

1. What is the rez date for your current SL Avatar that you use most often? 6/17/2012, angeltrip. This is not my first SL avatar, but I never used my previous ones. I’d never had a computer that could properly run Second Life. Aside from that, it was so confusing when I signed on the first few times that I didn’t want to continue trying to play it! This is my third or fourth registered avatar, but I have no idea how to log onto the other ones anymore.

2. Where was the first place you made friends as a newb and got to know people in Second Life? I never went through this stage. I learned SL with my real life friends and they are who I have always talked to and hung out with in the game.

3. Where do you spend most of your SL time now? On a pose stand at home, generally naked, or at least bald. I’m hardly ever properly dressed unless I’m going into public. Sometimes I will also dance while I’m afk, and I am generally always at least partially afk while online.

4. Who is your closest friend in Second Life? (only pick one) Emi!

5. What is the most favorite thing in your inventory? (only pick one) Oh, this is a hard one! If I had to pick just one thing, I’d say my petite avatar. There is something that is so charming in them. I like being a tiny person every once in a while, though it’s difficult to do in some places because of the camera issues.

6. The last thing you purchased in Second Life? Lindsay by erratic. Watch out for that post!

7. What color clothing does your avatar wear most often? Black. I don’t own many colourful things.

8. Do you prefer to walk, run or fly? I prefer flying, definitely. I don’t do it in small stores or near to the ground to avoid possibly annoying someone, though. I get a little sad if I’m in a large sim and find it no fly. I can understand in some sims, but in others..

9. What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done in SL? My friends and I do a lot of weird things like riding upside down in go karts and having random dance-offs, but nothing too “crazy”. (Seriously, I’m like the most boring person ever.)

10. Who would you like to play YOU, in the movie of your SLife? This beautiful lady.

disco time

skating01

I’ve been wearing these cute Vintage Roller Skates from The Secret Store ever since I got them. Currently in a gacha at The Arcade, these cute skates come in so many colours, but my favourite is the one I’m wearing, black neon. I love these skates so much that I had to make a whole pose set for them!

I decided to finally take these babies for a proper spin at a rink, but, well..

Better luck next time?

I saw this meme in Emi’s blog, that originated from the talented Strawberry Singh, and thought I might as well jump on the band wagon (even if a little late).

Seven SL Facts:

1. I have a low end laptop that wasn’t made for programs like SL, and so I constantly run on low settings with horrible FPS. Nevertheless, I like to go sightseeing and try to turn my options up when I can in order to see things closer to the way the creators intended. Sometimes I get a little bummed out when I see my friends and their constantly beautiful surroundings. One day I’ll be able to get another laptop, I hope!

2. After seeing the beautiful creations in the game, I’m trying to learn how to create some things myself. A challenge given fact one, but I’m happy to undertake it.

3. My inventory is a complete mess. I created folders inside of folders inside of folders.. 40000 items later and I’m so lost. I have a hard time deleting things in order to cut down because it’s sooo disorganized.

4. I really, really love horns. I only have a small collection right now, but I’m always looking to grow it.

5. My favourite thing to do is sit on random things. Whenever I see something, my first reaction is to want to sit on it. I get really sad when I can’t sit on things. It’s weird!

6. I also really like to dance for no reason, especially while walking. I like walking in poses, too.

7. I love using SL as a platform to stay in touch with the people I care about. No matter where I am in the world, I can pop on and see any of my best friends, and we can even go out and do fun things together. It’s the best part of SL!

Even if I don’t have many interesting facts, it was fun to think about! I’ve come to the conclusion that my second life is really, really boring, though..

Thanks for reading anyway!

I need to apologize for my lengthy absence from the internet. I had some real life changes that directly influenced my computer time, and for a while, SL had to fall by the wayside for me. Things are a little more stable now, so I hope that they continue to get better so that I can stay here for good!

It seems my return happened at a good time. The Arcade is in full swing for the month with some of the cutest things I think I’ve ever seen. My favourite thing by far is the Auxiliary Wild Rumpus Rompers. Emi and I fell into the trap of the cute and spent waaay too much money completing our outfits, but I have absolutely no regrets!

Photo by the always wonderful Emi! Thank you!

There are several different combinations you can make with a base romper by simply adding a tail and hood, which is an excellent idea given that the items come as separates from a gacha. Though collecting items this way can admittedly be a little frustrating, I would recommend anyone who likes adorable to pick up these rompers while you still can.
