I’m getting ready to celebrate my 13th rezz day here in second life. (10.23) I still can’t believe it’s been 13 years! Why I was still a spring chicken back then!
How I Came to Second Life
We were in the process of selling our house and getting ready to move, and most things had been packed up, but I had my trusty little laptop. I don’t know where I was reading but I saw a mention of a virtual world called Second Life. I remember thinking, I wonder what a virtual world looks like! I had time to kill and my curiosity to lead me and in I dove.
I chose a perfectly practical name thank you, thinking that’s what you did in a virtual world (had I known better I might have called myself willowmoon or something dreamy like that.) and I’m only just checking it out anyway. I’ll probably only try it once or twice…
My earliest memories are of a lot of nekkid newbies jumping on each other and I was bemused. Little horny nekkid animated people. huh. Imagine my surprise a few days later when I realized they had anatomically correct ones too! (the boys, I mean) That was like Woah! ok then! lol
I wandered off to other areas and I found a house that was like a big log cabin and always empty so being clueless as I was, I would crash there (I was a squatter! LOL), it was so cute. I didn’t realize people had private residences, heck I dont know what I thought!
I started trying to put my avi together, back then, there were not nearly as many wonderful freebies as there are now, and what there was, wasn’t nearly as well made! (The Free Dove was actually around but it was much smaller than it is now!) I took some photos outside that house…. Want to see noob me? I warn you, it’s not pretty! But I did get myself some decent hair somehow. For back then anyway.
The grid has come a long long way since 2008 my friends. !!!!! This photo was taken right outside the cute house I used to crash in, I loved the little blanket area and the sparkly rainbows. Second Life seems so much more real now, with mesh and things look so much better!
13 Years Later!
So now lets talk about my new photo (stark contrast!!!) cause I’ve got an adorbs outfit for you from Lunar. My shorts, top and jacket are all part of the Chanty outfit which is a free group gift at Lunar (I love their stuff! I am *dying* for their Lamu Jacket in Pink!), and that group is free to join. The ensemble fits:
Each item comes with a HUD so you can pick and choose colors and make the outfit uniquely yours.
My cute golden flower headband is also a free group gift, this time from Evie, and woohoo that group is free to join as well. Gotta love an entirely free cute outfit!
Tomorrow I think I will check out the fab free list of rezz day gifts, I always mean to and somehow always forget its my rezz day until it passes. Not this time! I need some goodies to blog too. As if I need a reason to find freebies!
Arielle is looking fabulous in…
