I <3 SL Skins – Elle's Noob Days continue….

Through-a-Screen-Door
Just an Irrelevant Pretty Picture

My return to Second Life has been, overall, uncomplicated. I logged in, got addicted to Linden Homes, and of course, I shopped. I have to say that I am a bit disappointed in the fashion choices in Second Life: So-Many-Outfits-Look-Exactly-The-Same. I spent many an hour visiting the latest events attempting to find that perfect new outfit. Alas, 75% of the time, my event shopping resulted in disappointment. I don’t know if it’s the demos the designers decide to use or if the efforts are just – bad. The pattern continues – I teleport to the current “Event Du Jour,” and an advert catches my eye. With the flick of my mouse, I would click that demo prim faster than you could say “Lindens.” Then, excitedly I would port home to one of my, err, seven Linden Homes and gleefully try the demo, and more often than not, the demo unveiling would reveal a horrible plastic-looking shirt with no depth or a skirt that was just..sad. But…not the Skin featured in the plethora of events: Oh My…Not the Skin.

Meta Acquires Second Life from Linden Lab

Metaverse

After months of discussions, Mark Zuckerberg and the Meta team have determined that Second Life is the true metaverse. They have now completed negotiations with Linden Lab for the acquisition of Second Life, and the transition is currently in the works.

“This transition will take place over the next few months, and we will do everything we can to make it as smooth as possible. Don’t be alarmed if you notice your legs disappearing; this is a new user function.”

Half Linden

Conquerors have amassed land and power on the battlefield throughout history. For the metaverse, Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Meta, and Philip Rosedale, the founder of Linden Lab, will compete in a boxing match to see who can have the weirdest hair in the metaverse. In addition to getting the hairstyle, the winner will be able to decide whether or not avatars will have legs.

Hello from Aurelias! I just want to thank all of the visitors for your sweet comments about the region and for submitting your photos to the Aurelias Flickr group. There’s a rush in Second Life to immediately go from Christmas/Winter to Spring. We’re taking our time on Aurelias and thawing out slowly! We already planning for Spring, but I just love the snow so much that it’s going to linger through March.

I want to express my gratitude to Sparkle, my friend and region developer, for bringing this pixel dream to life. Aurelias is the result of a collaboration of ideas and friendship, and I’m overjoyed to be able to share it with you all. This region was opened during the winter and will gradually thaw out in the spring. Our fondness for the seasons and precipitation sets Aurelias apart from other places.

There’s no better way to kick off the Christmas season than gifts from your favorite brands. LeLutka is giving away two free mesh heads, for females and males, so no one is left out! This is how LeLutka, who is already the number one brand, annihilates their competition and leaves them in the dust. They’ve perfected brand dominance through mass adoption, by ensuring that their product is accessible and FREE to the entire user base. This move is so unexpected for a brand that has no competition, and now the user base is even more loyal, and other third-party creators have no choice but to prioritize creating for their products. I guess this is now a new annual tradition!

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.
