Flowers in your hair, cozy armchairs, ottoman with an iPad, music, empty dance floor and plenty on wine -Woodstock’s Road callingmy hippie paradise. If you want to chill out with me, visit Woodstock’s Road.
Stretching at the morning. Feeling lazy cat and very out-of-date – I haven’t been enough in SL lately. Just a little bit of Homestuff hunt and taking care of rental issues. But one thing is correct: my mixed reality soul is very pleased because my SL-hair and RL-hair are so similar.
I wrote another geekgirl article, this time about playing with avatar outlooks and living in SL. Sorry folks, only Finnish.
Have missed so many fun memes of Strawberry Singh…I might start with easy one, today’s inventory meme… but just wait flat Rodvik Linden, I think I have something for you.
I was so thrilled when I noticed SS’s new meme challenge because it is always fun to create look-a-likes. I even asked from my FB friends what movie they suggest to me. Answer was unpossible to visualize in SL: Comet in Moominland – Muumipeikko ja pyrstötähti. It is based on Tove Jansson’s famous “children’s” book. It is great book and as my friend wrote, full of “adventures, family time, treasures, changes, serenity, writing, new encounters, unexpected twists and turns, traveling” – just like my RL life:)
While thinking of moomins, I took easier movie, Marie Antoinette. It is not my all-time-favorite movie, but it is fun and colorful and Kirsten Dunst is so cute. AND my SL friend is planning baroque/rococo themed party, so this was a good reason to shop some dresses and hairdo’s.
The dress is HUGE, and it has it’s own AO with fan movements, greetings, curtseys and bowing. Hairdo is Annette Hair color 10 from A&A. Rosy wall texture from Ferryhill Designs. And OMG I just realized I forgot to use my flower accessory! Had to make another pic, soon! 😀
I did not try to copy the original movie poster, my version is based on these two pics.
Pure horror. That was my first reaction when I extempore signed up to the InWorldz. Not because of leaving SL – oh no never! – but just for curiosity. I also have Blue Mars account since 2009 and I tested it also – but hated every minute of it. It is so totally different than SL and seems like there’s absolutely nothing to see or do. I might be wrong, but learning curve after SL is too painful so I don’t think I log in to the Blue Mars any time soon.
But InWorldz. It is like old-fashioned SL… like going back in time. Being newbie again is rough! When I arrived to the welcome area there was people waiting and offering me free house and help – very friendly and nice, but it happened so quickly… 10 minutes after log in I was standing outside my 30 day free rental beach house. Had to admit I was little irritated when they gave me tips how to put my typing animation off or how to open preferences… after I had said several times I am very familiar with the viewer based on my 7 years in SL. The viewer feels to be same as SL viewer, I did not noticed any differences what so ever.
I have no idea if I am going back. I am not so interested, but I am curious to test other virtual worlds too and it is not fair to judge after quick testing. Nevertheless, my tip of the day: if you think SL is boring and dull and empty and stupid, try other virtual worlds and you are gonna just love love love Second Life.
