Second Life Movie Poster Challenge 2016: Peeping Beauty

1 Peeping Beauty sm

I was very happy to see that Strawberry Singh started her memes back a few weeks ago. Before her hiatus, I participated regularly; but this is the first one I have managed to do in recent times. No matter how busy I have been in real life, the Second Life Movie Poster Challenge from 2013 was one of my very favourites, and I wasn’t about to miss out this time!

For those of you who want to participate, here are the instructions:

Meme instructions: Create a movie poster for your Second Life Avatar or SLife. You can base it off an original movie poster or think of a completely new idea of your own! Please be careful of copyright issues and try not to use copyrighted elements in your work. Remember to share a link to your poster in the comments (of Berry’s post) and the Blog Memes Flickr Group. You don’t have to have a blog to do this challenge, you can share your image on any social platform you prefer.

In keeping with my original meme, I decided to play on my name. After wracking my brain for movies with “sleep” in the title, I settled on Sleeping Beauty. Thankfully, with the different eye positions available with my CATWA head, it was relatively easy to create a photo with one eye closed and one eye open. And like the last time, I found myself giggling as I created this poster.

Do please pop over to Berry’s blog to see all of the entries. There are details there on Glasz DeCuir’s upcoming exhibition of Second Life movie posters, as well.

Now I just have to wait for that prince to show up so I can fully awaken. I just hope my hundred-year morning breathe doesn’t kill him!

Me, Myself and I Meme: Who Am I?

1 Turbans & Texture 1

You’ve got to love Strawberry Singh. Even while she’s on spring break, she’s managed to get out a meme this week. She says this one is quick and easy, but the hardest part for me is not thinking – just answering!

Here’s what she has asked us to do:

Meme Instructions: Copy and paste the following statements in your post and complete them writing down the first thing that pops into your head. Don’t forget to link your post in the comments [of this post].

I am… impatient
I want… love
I have… fears
I wish… for stability
I hate… sadness
I fear… being rejected
I search… for meaning in my life
I wonder… if this is depressing anyone else!
I regret… marrying
I never… want to be unloved
I always… think I’m not good enough
I usually… tell myself I AM good enough
I dance… awkwardly
I sing… loud and off-key
I often… procrastinate
I sometimes… over-analyse
I cry… myself to sleep sometimes
I need… a life!
I should… socialise more
I love… my Shining Star

(That wasn’t painless, Berry…just saying!)

I wanted to mention a couple of things about this photo. Johnfrancis Laville has created this marvelously textured turban, which has been released in his mainstore, JfL Hats. It comes in 6 colours and it works with hair! I love this hat; maybe I should have said that in my answers 😉

Also, the new round of Shiny Shabby has opened and Luna Jubilee has released five new poses with mirrors for !bang. They are feminine, fun and you must have them!

Have you ever SecondLifed Meme

1 In The Moonlight

I’ve skipped a few weeks of Strawberry Singh’s Monday Memes, mainly because of a lack of time. I try to use a photograph that goes along with the theme, and since Monday is my Tuesday, I don’t usually get a chance to get into SL to take a photo. This week, though, I feel like I can use any picture, so here I am again!

This week’s meme is a series of questions about what we may (or may not) have done in Second Life. If you want to participate, here are the instructions:

Meme Instructions: Copy and paste the following questions and answers to your post, delete my answers and input your own. Don’t forget to leave a link to your post in the comments (of this post) so others can come by and read your answers as well!

So, here we go!

1. Have you ever owned a sim in Second Life? – Yes. I had a homestead sim for about a year. However, it was private.
2. Have you ever created content in Second Life? – Other than the odd wall or floor, about the only other thing I have created in Second Life is this.
3. Have you ever driven a vehicle in Second Life? – Yes. Badly. No matter what the vehicle is. And Abbie, it’s still YOUR fault that I lost your bike off the edge of the sim. You should have known better than to let me drive!
4. Have you ever gone sky diving in Second Life? – Not on my SLife!
5. Have you ever played a sport in Second Life? – Nope.
6. Have you ever gone clubbing in Second Life? – I used to practically LIVE in clubs. I hung out, hosted, managed and DJed in a variety of rock and country clubs in SL.
7. Have you ever fangirled/fanboyed someone in Second Life? – I don’t really think so. Oh, there are plenty of people I could fangirl, but I never run into any and stalking is so last year 😉
8. Have you ever taken a picture of your avatar in water in Second Life? – Yes, quite a few. I think this one is my favourite.
9. Have you ever taken a picture of a sunset in Second Life? – Often.
10. Have you ever taken a nude picture of your avatar in Second Life? – On occasion. But you won’t be seeing me flaunting my bits on Flickr or my blog “just because.”
11. Have you ever dated in Second Life? – Yep.
12. Have you ever had or attended a wedding in Second Life? – I’ve attended several. Many for the same people.
13. Have you ever drank, smoked or taken drugs in Second Life? – Yep.
14. Have you ever engaged in sexual activity in Second Life? – Is this a real question? Um…yeah.
15. Have you ever been to Bukkake Bliss in Second Life? – I’m embarrassed to say that I don’t even know what it is *blushes*

I was really pleased to see that Berry used and mentioned LUMIPro in her blog. I am a huge fan and have been using it regularly for almost two years. I even did kind of a review when Stefan did a new release a while back (there have been a couple more since then). While Stefan’s blog and YouTube channel are awesome resources, you can check out my post on my experiences here. I used LUMIPro in this photo, as I do with almost all of my pictures that include an avatar. It’s fun to get people to play with Stefan’s balls 😉

Berry mentioned that it can be a bit confusing, but the beauty of LUMIPro is that you can use as few or as many of features as you like. I use the posing system and avatar lighting most of all, but I also use the projectors. While you can use the controls on the HUD to move around the pose stand and projectors, I usually just use Edit to move them around, unless I have my camera angle set and don’t want to risk losing it. That sneaky camera angle thing is something I mentioned to Stefan and who knows? Mr LUMIPro may come up with a solution in one of his releases. He’s good that way 😉
