Mini Challenge Wednesday

Here’s Alicia’s challenge for Wednesday:
** In SL, we’re often afraid of looking silly. I’ve noticed this more with bloggers than with anyone else. Why have you made your avatar look the way it does? What does it mean to you? Do you think people respond to you differently if you’re attractive? Today, put on something just totally crazy. It can be a funny avatar, a crazy outfit, weird hair, or just some bling-blangin’ jewelry. Go out in public, see if anyone has anything to say about it. See if you think of yourself differently if your avatar isn’t perfect looking. Don’t forget to take a picture of your outfit!! **

Well, I have to admit, I’ve never been too concerned with people thinking I look stupid, weird, etc. In fact, I’d venture to say I try to look different because it’s very easy to get swallowed up in the sea of sameness, especially in a game like SL, where there’s a tendency to flock to the same goodies… I see things on the feed and I get instant lemming attacks. That’s actually what got me modding Eloh’s skins in the first place… I really wanted to personalize myself. I’ve never really had anyone insult me on my look to my face.. most people ignore me honestly. Maybe my look scares people away? I don’t know. So anyways, I put on a tiny outfit today for a change and nobody said a word.. granted I wasn’t out very long but that seems to be the typical response I get, none at all.  I should add that since I typically rock a different look every time I log into SL, I didn’t feel any differently running around in a kyoot little bear outfit than I would in some fashionista getup. Okay, I did feel pretty dang precious. :D

Btw, this avatar was free but I picked up a very long time ago so I don’t know if it is still free or not. And it skates, which is adorable.

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.
