I haven’t even unpacked the goodies but I have to report that the Lovefest 2017 was nothing short of awe-inspiring and a hella lot of fun! (I wish I could come up with stuff like the organizers did!)
Including fresh pics (btw, I “died” at the end–not sure if that’s normal or if I’m just a bad quester).
Ooch. Rough landing! Good thing I’d taken my Dramamine!
It’s an alien world down here.
Pretty purple flower things–and slugs.
No fishies–or fishie-things–I am not food!
I said, I AM NOT FOOD!
The native species seem to be a bit overly friendly.
Did I lose the trail?
This tentacled thing likes to hug–hard!
Took a door, wound up dead in space–at least I didn’t get hit by that big bang there.
Peacefully drifting off into the aether.
It’s been forever since I’ve posted!
I finally got back involved in SL a few weeks ago, just in time to see the CDS display for the SL Big Birthday Bash. It was fun because I actually got to participate! They’d asked for pictures of the residents to make life-sized (avatar life-sized, that is) cutouts to make the display look like it was not only inhabited but rockin’ up in those Alpine villages! 😀
I was really honored that they used both of mine–one in a lederhosen minidress, complete with steins and pretzels and one with a full carnivale get-up. I had a blast taking the photos and was proud to have been included.

I haven’t taken the time to do much more inworld photography for a long time. I did just finish two hunts–the Hard Catch hunt and the Little Shop of Horrors hunt. I was just about to go head-first into the Lovefest hunt (last day is today!) but decided to stop for a few moments and write. (Since I finally remembered my blog password! Am I a bad bloggess or what???)
Muah dahlinks ’til next time (which I hope won’t be too long)!
Townhouses in CDS Alpine Meadow
Popped into SL long enough to pay my rent on my gorgeous mountain retreat and noticed that there have been some improvements on my street. The big block of apartments across the street have been replaced by these charming townhouses. One of the great things about SL–neighborhood improvements without the dust, debris, and noise!
I managed to clear out some time to do some hunting in Second Life. It’s Midsummer Night’s Dream hunt time!
While I haven’t had time to put together outfits and photos yet, I did find myself on television at one of the stops! (Okay, so I know it’s one of those profile pic showing scripts, but I got a kick out of it!)
Quick post tonight. While doing the Happy Easter Day Hunt the other night, I stumbled upon a prize from the Ostara hunt at Vamp. This flouncy little yellow number was inside.
Hair: Soul! Birds Hair in brown. Jewelry: Beloved Nola set (from the Peace on Earth hunt this past year). Dress: Vamp! Easter Egg Yellow dress from the Ostara hunt. Shoes: Lovely Diane pumps in white (freebie from Free Dove).
Finally! I’m back on the hunt trail!
I had hoped to get started this weekend but after accidentally deleting my house in Alpine Meadow (AAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRGGGHHH!!!), it took hours but I finally rebuilt the springtime version and put in my own photo studio (Yay!).
Tonight, I started on the Happy Easter Day Hunt. I’m still unpacking the loot but below is the first outfit I put together–a cute cropped top and earrings set from Ayva’s Attic
Hair: Lucie in Hazelnut from MPP (Free Dove freebie). Skin, Eyes, Shape: Carla starter avatar (from the SL library files). Carly cropped shirt in Happy Easter and Happy Easter earrings from Ayva’s Attic for HEDH 2016. Jeans: OMG! Inc jeans (from an earlier hunt). Shoes: ER Bunny Slippers (from an earlier hunt).
More outfits to come but, in the meantime, I couldn’t resist doing a “nuclear” take on my photo shoot!
Casual Easter in Infrared
Today, I took the plunge and officially became a “real” Second Life resident, meaning I actually now have a place I can call my own.
After shopping around a bit, I noticed that I kept coming back to the “CDS” (which stands for the Confederation of Democratic Sims). I found a parcel in Alpine Meadows with a bit of encouragement from some of the locals, Lilith Ivory and Hannah Bloodwolf. The views are amazing and I have a rolling mountain stream that flows right next to my balcony!
I’m still shopping for a photo studio that will fit upstairs but so far, virtual home owning is brilliant! (If only my real world home was this nice!)
