Gavin Plays the Guitar

Ydea Style currently has this complete outfit out as a group gift for the fellas. The group is free to join, and includes the 2 shirts, pants, and shoes. There’s another fun thing in the box, which I’ll show you later in this post. 🙂 Oh, and my bracelet is a group gift from Chop Zuey Couture. There is one for either wrist – or both!

Three great freebies here: first, my skin is a free gift from ::Bite&Claw::. There is also a women’s gift in the box, which Serena showed here. My necklace is an older gift from RONSEM*, which was originally shown here by Love. It’s still available, so if you didn’t already pick it up, you still can! Finally, my eyes are a group gift from Madrid Solo Cosmetics. You need to join the group and check the notices to find the eyes… but they were posted a while ago, so don’t delay! There are also a couple of cosmetic gifts for both men and women available at the in-world store, so be sure to head over and scoop them up!

Remember when I said there was another fun thing in the Ydea box? Well, here it is! The outfit comes with this guitar prop, which, when you attach it, plays this lively guitar-playing animation. I decided that a still photo did not do the animation justice, so I decided to make this little piece of machinima. It’s my first attempt ever, and I know it’s pretty awful, but I think you get the idea. Oh, the guitar does not play music; I added it to the video. Enjoy! 😀

  1. That was fabulous! Great first Machinima. ❤ ❤


  2. Thank you, Xiu! I obviously still have a lot to learn, but it was a fun experiment that I hope to improve on in the future. 🙂


  3. I have been in the game awhile. How do you make videos in second life?


  4. Hi Kat – It took me a while to figure out, so I finally had to Google “How to make Second Life machinima.” I found a wiki here http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Movie_Recording that listed several different types of third-party software. I wound up going with the free version of Fraps, which you can download at http://www.fraps.com/. If I ever decide to do this again – which I probably will! – I will likely upgrade to the full version, but since this was just an experiment, I used the freeware. After making the recording, I imported the video into Microsoft Movie Maker, another freebie, to add the credits and effects. FWIW, I used to make videos all the time when I was a teacher, but that was about a dozen years ago, and things have changed a great deal. Adobe Premier is a very good editing program, but has a bit of a learning curve, and is not free (although I think you can get a trial version).

    Anyway, check out the wiki and give a few of the programs a test run. Let me know what works for you… I’m interested in knowing what other residents use! 🙂


  5. Awesome first machinima Serena! I’ve never made one for Second Life but I have made machinima for The Sims 2 & 3 before just using Windows Movie Maker to edit and put in credits and effects. Thanks for the heads up on how to make SL machinima just might give that a try too!


  6. Gavin looks like Ashton Kutcher in that skin! 😀
