A New Me!

QNC-Carmen

Well not really a “new” me but…I have a new skin!

People that know me well in Second Life and Real Life know I like skins, I am always trying on skins to get a different look for the shop or to fit a mood. My sister who owns Quaint and Curious aka. QNC in Second Life has recently started to make skins. YAY! When she was wearing her item I asked…OK BEGGED for a copy of her. When it was complete through her testing, she sent me her skin. Carmen

Here she is, QNC Carmen!

I know, 700L WHAT! Inside however, is more than just a skin. She has alot of goodies in that package and is in the process of adding more appliers to her shop.

I opted to take the photo with a ponytail and left off my usual detail add-ons so that only the pure face is showing.

Things found in boxes….

As I was spring cleaning the other night, I found a storage box. Inside this simple, plastic storage box was a time stained, spiral notebook. I thought I tossed it long ago. The beginnings of a story is written in there, never finished. I had something similar happen years before this when torn pieces of a story I wrote in school, turned up in a book my younger sister checked out from the library 3 years later.

Now I am in a self debate…do I finish this story started years before or do I leave it as a distant memory unfinished. Time will tell. Have you found lost treasures while spring cleaning?

Wrong Turn

Just a random little post of a look today.

I went to my sister’s house and wouldn’t you know it…I took a wrong turn! Might as well get groceries while here.

Simple Male Avatar

Being a new player in the land of Second Life can be challenging. Finding nice things for a new avatar is tedious, for a male avatar however, it is always a challenge.

I am going to be roaming around in an RP sim and wanted a different look. I am normally a female avatar as my photos on this blog show, for this look I decided to go…MALE!

I stopped to think, what all was my male self going to need. I came up with the basics, Shape, Eyes, Skin, Hair, Clothes…the challenge was finding them and putting them together. I do not have any extra bits as a “normal” male. Those can be found if you put together a look similar to this and it’s wanted, for me however, it is not needed.

All these can be found on the Second Life Marketplace except the hair.
The look!
