Soul Divas Isolde and Delora

I felt showered with gifts today when I received the Magika Delora hair in 5 color packs. All color packs (blond, brown, red, B&W and colors) include a mirrored version of the Delora hair and.... a HUD. Arghhh, I love this hud, it allows me to choose the color of my choice, take some hair into my mouth (big smile) and color part of my hair in a different shade.  
Moreover this solution saves a lot of space in my invent. 

The next (group)gift I received was Exodi Isolde skin-17 in all tones. It comes with eyelashes and in several options: Dark/Light Freckles, Cleavage AND V2 compatible underlayer hairbases in 4 colors. Awww love this!
Joining fee is 250 L$ for which you will receive Exodi GG every month as well as a membership discount of 10% on any skin.

Exodi Isolde Vivante- 17 skin

From my invent:
Skirt: part of RunoRuno silk dress medium
Socks: LeeZu Baxter PunkStockings blue stripes
Gloves: XTC Shirtley lace glove

A bit of O...

And now for something completely different .... (smiles)

A lazy Saturday afternoon in SL (raining in RL) and me visiting an 'O' place,  based on histoire d'O (the French story of the slave 'O'). Where I met guys that like to dominate girls and girls that like to be dominated. 
I had great fun and yeah I learned about this experience, as I always do.
Shoot some pics of me and my master of the moment - whom I met there -, sitting on his lap in the library. Other pic showing visitors of the place. Nice books don't you think. Lot of wisdom there, must be ... ;-)

What did I learn, .... let me shut my big mouth coz I like to return for further exploration. Definitely an interesting place to enjoy.

Ulrika with dimples and freckles

L.Fauna 2.0 tattoo Dimples and Freckles: I love it ... and best thing is it was one of the FLF items this Friday 10 September. So cute the dimples in my cheeks and I have been freckles lover for ages. So now all my skins can have freckles and dimples with this tattoo layer. 

Wearing another FLF item, the Atilleri top Ulrika. Yep this sure makes me think of Heidi. Well very applicable as I will visit Cologne this looong weekend RL.  

Wishing you all a sunny weekend!

Phoenix rising from the Emerald grave

Yesterday I received the following email from Linden Lab, which pissed me off. Blergh I like the Emerald Viewer and hate politics and power play. 

Dear Second Life Resident,

As of 10am PT Wednesday, September 8, the Emerald Viewer will be blocked from logging in to Second Life as a result of violations of our Policy on Third Party Viewers. Residents who have been using any version of the Emerald Viewer will need to use a different Viewer to access Second Life.
You can download the official Second Life Viewer, developed by Linden Lab, here.
Or, you can learn more about alternative Viewers, developed by third parties, here.
Please be aware that attempting to circumvent our blocking to access Second Life with a banned Viewer is a violation of the Policy on Third Party Viewers and may result in the loss of one's account. For more information, please read the blog post.

Joe Linden
VP, Platform & Technology Development

My initial reaction was to kick ass and I placed a pissed of blog. However, (me/ sighs) after a (too short) but good night sleep I realized this is life: changing all the time, things come and go. Yep, Second Life is no different from Real Life, although I want it to be. The perfect fantasy/dream world in which everybody can be what she/he wants and do whatever she/he wants.

Jule Lemondrop, an SL friend and fellow blogger (visit her awesome blog Lemondrop), who read my initial pissed of blog item and IM-ed me mentioning  the Phoenix viewer.
I downloaded the Phoenix viewer, which is more or less the same as Emerald, being developed by a former Emerald scripter who created a new team.
Thanks Jule I appreciate your help. Please forgive me for not being in the best of moods yesterday night.

(Second) Life goes on and if we wanna stay here we do too: Phoenix rising from the Emerald grave.
Or maybe there will be a new virtual sort of SL game in the near future, who knows time will tell.

* * * * * * * *

However, now (Wednesday my afternoon, which is GMT +1) after reading the blog item of Arabella Steadham, communications manager Emerald on the Emerald Forum I believe my initial gut feeling wasn't so wrong. Damn it's all politics and ego powerplay!

It's a long but interesting letter, I encourage you all to read it and then make up your mind. After all one should always listen to both sides of a story before judging!

Nice game

Sometimes SL really sucks and yesterday night I had another fine example: a friend (lets call him Mr. X) told me about his SL and RL mixing up. Weirdo story as he and his SL GF were gonna meet in RL, really in love, hours in SL, emails, phone calls, etc etc well you know the story.... (sounds familiar doesn't it). 

Anyway, when returning to SL after being away for a long weekend, my friend his SL GF told him she had been intimate with her former RL lover. Tears, more tears, drama, etc. But, that's not all coz the story continues: the SL GF seems she was reckless and she might be pregnant now with her ex lovers' child. OMG what drama. My friend is devastaded and hurts. What should he do?   
Mm, yeah nice game Second Life ....

MINA at the Hair Fair

MINA sent me fatpacks of her new hairs, that will be for sale at her booth at the upcoming Hair Fair. This year's Hair Fair will be from 4-19 September and Wigs for Kids is the charity of choice. MINA offers several Charity items as well as a special gift for all who visit her booth. 

Alana charcoal, MINA hair fair gift

To prevent lag as much as possible the builder, who is also the sponsor, set up two lots of two on the four available sims. Another way to combat lag this year is the demo group that is up (Hair Fair Demo Group), which is the inworld group all of the designers will be sending their demos to. More info? Read the Hairfair wordpress info.

My MINA favourites are: 
Carice (I bet Mina named this hair after the famous Dutch actress Carice van Houten), a long flexi hair which comes with a separate (!) hat. The hat has a prim menu to adjust/change scale and texture. There are 9 texture options for the hat itself, as well as for the ribbon. Luv it

Carice with scripted hat

and Thulani, which is a flexible curly updo with a texture changing sort of bandana. Fun hair and.... it's unisex so you and your BF can show up at that beach party wearing the same hair ;-)


I bet you are dying to visit MINA's booth by now, collect your gift and buy other (charity) hairs. Have a nice weekend!

Taxi to MINA's booth at the Hair Fair.

Art Box

Fun, fun, fun at Art boxArt Box is a place where you find famous paintings and photographs in great 3D detail. Many different backgrounds with pose balls in front which give you the idea you really are a part of the scene. 

I show you three: dolls house, ants and Abbey Road, but there are soooo many more. Find out yourselves and don't forget to take your camera with you, you'll need it ;-)

Sculpted JoSje

Now here is a skin that is really love at first sight coz it fits my avi so well. Wearing JoSje skin, a Dutch Touch preview skin and VIP Group gift only (join fee 250 L). Thanks Iki you are so generous. 

The attached notecard gave the following info, which made JoSje even more sympathetic: 'This face is of a girl who doesn't show any interest in winning a beauty queen contest. She is just another girl next door, cute, a bit cheeky and clever. A natural blond with common sense'. 

Sculpted me coz I wear part of the new tube top/dress of Fishy Strawberry - which can be bought at The Dressing Room (new collection is out) - and combined it with COCO's high waisted bubble skirt (polka dot). .
I love this look, but mmm hey guys don't derender me .....
