New LeLutka EvoX Head; Halle

New LeLutka EvoX Head; Halle

Could this be the new me? Every time LeLutka drops a new mesh head, I hope that it’s one I can stick to, cos I love change. I feel more flexible when I can make many different versions of myself, to go with any skin. My favorite head right now is the Avalon head, but I’ve worn that for a while now and I think I’m ready for a change. The last mesh head release, Gaia, was a bit too youthful for me, but I still thought that the head shape was very pretty. I probably could have made it work, with a few more shape tweaks.

The Rise & Fall of Gachas

The Rise & Fall of Gachas

It’s official – Second Life has banned gachas! I expected under the new regime leadership, this policy and many others will follow to clean up the grid and be in compliance with governmental regulations.

While I occasionally played a gacha machine here and there, I’m mostly a beneficiary of the extras from friends. Gacha was fun when it was cheap, but over the years, pull prices have doubled, and the chances of a rare nearly impossible. But I do realize the reason why people play – cos it’s cheap, random, and fun, unless you had terrible luck! If you can score the rare after one or two pulls, you felt like you were winning. I asked my friend Sparkle, aka the Gacha Queen, her thoughts on this policy change.

Meet Mini Gogo

Mini Gogo

Say hello to mini Gogo!

My friend Sparkle and I decided to make mini versions of ourselves. To successfully do this, we had to research everything about making child avatars in Second Life. I came across this Baby Avatar Customization – How to Make a Second Life Baby by MeelaVanderbuilt, which is both entertaining and informative. There are some good tips here, if you want to make a mini of your own. I also followed the Second Life Kid Bloggers group on Flickr for some shopping ideas.

Pink Fuel – Millie no blush (skin only) | with HD Lipstick

Hi everyone! It’s 2021, are you ready for a new look? Pink Fuel just released the Millie skin for LeLutka Evolution mesh heads. This skin is Bakes on Mesh and comes with options to customize your look. In the picture above, I am wearing the skin only on the left, and on the right, I have added the HD Lipstick. I prefer HD lipstick to BoM lipstick, always, cos it looks so much more crisp and realistic.

Love Momma; Pregnant in Second Life

Love Momma

There’s a baby in there!

The Love Momma body will be released sometime in the future and it will be the first body of its kind where an avatar could experience the entire pregnancy cycle and even give birth to a newborn at the end. How incredible is that? Even if I have no interest in roleplaying a pregnant woman, I can see that this will be huge in Second Life for residents interested in this type of experience.
