Second Life Portraits With A Difference

Two Sisters, No Credits


1 Two Sisters 2

When I take photos for my blog I am fastidious about taking down the credits. I think it’s important to give proper due to the amazing creators of Second Life.

I’m breaking my own rule here today. I’m blogging and I’m not going to do credits. Not because the creators of everything in this photo aren’t amazing, but because I had no intention of blogging this picture when I took it. It is just a happy snap I took while hanging out with my sis.

I love going to visit Rwah. She’s amazingly talented and it is rare to see her sim looking the same way on two successive visits. But I liked this particular incarnation. So while we were sitting there discussing her latest vision for her space, fashion, men, and life in general, I snuck my view behind us and took this shot. I didn’t let on; I just passed her the raw shot after I had taken it.

It made me happy. Just spending time with Rwah. No pressure to hit deadlines, no clients to prep for, no pressing shopping events I just had to attend. Just two sisters, no credits and a beautiful memory, captured in a photograph.

Pretty stuff I’m showing off:

My sister, myself, a bench (from junk.) and a vista.



1 Tearful

Yes, I’m tearful. Hair Fair 2015 is coming to a close tonight at midnight. You still have time to get down there to pick up your favourite hairstyles and bandanas. As always, the last day of Hair Fair is Bandana Day – the day we wear the bandanas in honour of cancer patients who have lost their hair during treatment.

So, put on a smile through your tears and make one last contribution before the sims close for another year.

No Exit

1 Epiphany

Have you been to Epiphany? It’s a twist on the traditional gacha event where you can trade in extras and unwanted prizes for credits which you can exchange for an exclusive item. I’m still trying to decide if it is a blessing or a curse; while the idea of getting rid of unwanted prizes is pretty cool, it also means that sometimes you end up spending even more, trying to get that couple extra credits for an exclusive. And then you end up getting something else you like and you spend more, this time trying desperately to win a duplicate and wouldn’t you know it? You end up getting something you really wanted so you have to spend even more?

Clever? Oh, you bet it is. There’s no exit until you’ve emptied your bank account ;)

The skirt and top I’m wearing are the exclusives from Salt & Pepper. You can get the copy version for only 25 credits; the transfer style is 200.

Just a reminder that Hair Fair 2015 ends on July 26th so you only have a couple of days to get over there to scour the best collection of hair on four sims. And the 26th is Bandana Day, so doff your hair and don a bandana as a reminder of what this event is really all about – helping out Wigs for Kids.
