Mini Challenge Monday

I’ve been in a serious funk lately… so Alicia’s Mini Blogging Challenge was just the thing to make me bust out the pretties and go take some pictures. :D

Here’s the challenge for Monday:
** Second Life is a huge place, but we all have our favorite place where we seem to visit often just to look it, to hang out, to take friends, or just be alone and think. Where is your place, how did you find it, and what keeps you going back? Go there and take a picture! And no, it cannot be your own home! Ok ok, it can be your home. LOL **

My all time favorite place to go in SL is La Reve. Whenever I want to just bask in fantasy that’s where I head. The colors are gorgeous and it’s just a serene beautiful spot to be in. Even when there are a few people there, I can always find a little solitary spot to spend some time. And it’s one of those places I can go to be a Drow priestess or warrior, a playful sprite, a mischievous Unseelie fae, a Draenei mage or an Elven princess like I was today and each one fits just fine into the landscape. It’s just one of those places that I just love going and taking pictures. I can’t remember where I first heard about La Reve but I want to say it was Natalia Zelmanov’s blog… but wherever I heard it from, I’m glad I did because I adore the sim.

Ears and Jewelry by Illusions


OMG, the new ears from Illusions. They are beyond awesome. Seriously, I haven’t stopped turning my computer screen over to my husband and going, “OMG, aren’t these the most awesome ears you’ve ever seen???!!?” He agreed the first 10 times and now just ignores me. :P I saw Siyu’s post recently about releasing new ears and awaited them with bated breath. And let me tell you, these lived up to my every expectation and then some. The piercings are gorgeous, the ears are beautifully constructed and the options are glorious. I love all the jewelry color options as well as all the skin tones!! Siyu Suen is truly a genius artist. I look at these ears as pieces of art and they are just a pleasure to wear and look at. Straight out of the box, no custom texture, these ears almost perfectly match the Drow skin I had been working on recently. I had to take her out for a spin to show them off so we went to La Reve. I’m still trying not to pull my hair out when working with Windlight. It’s a love/hate relationship for me. I did end up turning off atmospheric shaders to take a few non-Windlight photos to really show off the ears. On to the pics. If you click them it will take you to my Flickr page where you can view them larger.
