If you have been struggling to find that special someone to accompany you to the beach – you know, to rub sunscreen on your back, brush the sand off your tush – fear not; you can find the perfect date (or two) at Summerfest ’16! Hey, they will even work as a life raft in case you get a cramp while swimming!
Katat0nik Pidgeon is one of the more creative designers in Second Life, and she hasn’t disappointed at this year’s Summerfest. This event always has some very playful items, but these Pool Toys from *katat0nik* are definitely going to be a hit! There are three different versions (sorry, but clowns freak me out, so I couldn’t bring myself to include him), and you get both a male and female version, plus large and small pool toys. Yes, that’s right…POOL toys. Got it??
Intrigue Co. is also another creative designer, and you can find a variety of kitschy goodies at Summerfest, including this fruitilicious necklace. Perhaps you’ll prefer a flamingo or umbrella hat or a bum bag, but hey – they’ve got you covered!
After the cut there is a closeup of the necklace, plus I’ll fill you in on my tat and the sand that my boyfriends haven’t bothered to dust off of me yet!
Oh yeah, and my boobs. There’s a closeup of my boobs :O
Adorable, yes? The necklace, of course!
See that sand? Izzie Button of Izzie’s is the queen of makeup for special occasions. Like when you have a cold and your eyes are runny and your nose is red or when you’ve been crying and your mascara is running. For Summerfest, she has created that always annoying beach malady – sand in all the bits where you don’t want it! You have your choice of coverage, not only in terms of what parts of your body you want covered in sand, but how heavy the sand coverage is. This works best with a medium to dark skin, so be sure you are sporting your tan for best visibility. She has also released sunscreen and sunblock makeups – the sunburn works best with lighter skins, so I’ll try to wash off my spray tan in a couple of days to show it, as well.
And check out my tats! *Bolson / Tattoo is one of my sister’s favourite tat designers, but not being a constant tattoo-wearer, I hadn’t tried out his designs before now. His work is top-notch, though, so I may be sporting this ink from time to time.
I needed a beach for this shot, so I popped over to It all starts with a smile for the perfect backdrop. Kaelyn Electo has graciously opened her sim to the public and it is currently decked out as a tropical paradise. Go check it out, and add your photos to the Flickr group, if you are so inclined.
I’m heading to the shower now to wash off this sand, right after I dump my dates. They haven’t been that helpful and they are definitely full of hot air!
