Second Life, I’m back! I can’t believe how long I’ve been out of SL, I did log in from time to time but never for more than a few minutes. For some reason a week ago I decided that I wanted to come back.
Wow, things have really changed. When I left SL, mesh was still new and mesh bodies/heads did not exist. Now here we are a whole brave new world!
I spent most of the first week wandering around looking at new things, a lot of the places I used to enjoy are gone, along with most of the blogs on my reading list. I know blogging has gone out of favour in RL as well, but I miss it. Being able to find interesting sims and great new things to buy seems harder but there are many more shopping events happening so I’ve been checking those out.
My new look is courtesy of some old favourites. I’m wearing the Lara mesh body by Maitreya, along with the Aida mesh head from LeLutka. I customised my shape and I think I’m happy now, after about 25 tries. I hit up The Epiphany for the Pink Fuel Lelutka applier gacha. I ended up with 3 options, on the 3rd try I won the “rare” applier seen here, in peach. I bought a body applier from Pink Fuel to match and I love the look. Pink Fuel was always a favourite of mine. I checked out a lot of my old favourite hair creators and picked up the Rumor hair from Truth. I bought the Multitone 1 option because I like the options. 32 different tones to choose from and 4 style options gives you a lot of bang for your buck!
Maitreya’s CSR Gryphon Ronas was kind enough to provide Lara compatible copies of a few of the things I already owned. Unfortunately most of my Maitreya items were not updated, but these favourite Maitreya Zipper-Skinny Jeans #5 were, and I picked up the basic Maitreya Tank Top in black to give me a complete basic outfit.
I love jewellery in both real life and SL, and in wandering around Collabor88 I saw these great (Yummy) Art Deco rings. I love that you can change the metal and the stone colour, and wear them all or just a few. I had also picked up this (Yummy) Secondhand Necklace set at the mainstore on Tableau, love the options again to change the metals on the charms.
It’s a bit of a learning curve coming back to Second Life but I’ve been having fun.
Next up, I need to figure out how Omega appliers work!
