A much tamer Saturday (part 2)

February 18, 2007

I spent the rest of the day doing some sightseeing in SL. It’s something I had not done in a while, so I set out to enjoy some of the beautiful scenery and snap the occasional picture.

Check out my Flickr to see the pics of Bliss Garden and Caledon I took today.

A much tamer Saturday (part 1)

February 18, 2007

After indulging my wild side last night, I decided to do something much less risque today, so I fell back on one of my favorite SL pasttimes: shopping.

I had been searching for a cute backpack for a really long time, but I never found anything I liked . . . until today. At Shigure Kenzo, I found a backpack cool enough to call my own 🙂 It was pretty cheap (I think 100 lindens), and it is scripted so that I can change the color of its eyes as I see fit. It came in three colors as well, and is copyable! Oh, also the tail swishes from side-to-side as I walk 🙂

Now that I had my backpack, I decided to finally buy a good pair of sneakers. This proved to be somewhat frustrating. Most of the sneakers I came across were no copy, and unless I find a pair of shoes that complete an outfit (and can find no others to do so), I don’t buy no copy shoes. With sneakers, I know I’m going to have several casual outfits I’ll want to wear them with, and I’m not going to buy a set of the same shoes over and over again (and it’s too much of a pain to keep switching them between outfits).

Anyway, now that I’ve had my little rant :), I finally found a pair of sneakers at FNKY! that are not only copyable, but that be changed to different colors. My sneaker needs are satisfied now 🙂 If you’re interested, I think I paid 350 lindens (some of the non-copyable shoes were this expensive).

With sneakers and backpack in hand, I ended my SL shopping day.

Friday night in Second Life (part 2): Hypocrite

February 17, 2007

So, I start off the night complaining about guys in SL hitting on me. Guess what I followed that up with? I entered a sexiest school girl contest at Spunky BT’s.

And I won.

I’m thrilled and embarrassed at the same time. I was really surprised by the outcome, as there were some very sexy ladies there. I will say that my skirt was very short. Maybe that’s what won it for me . . .

I used the contest as an excuse to buy the school girl outfits they have at It’s All Good (a store I highly recommend, as you get a lot for the money you spend). The bf has complained about the money I spend in SL, but he seemed to be OK with this particular outfit 🙂

Anyway, here are a couple of pics of the outfit I wore.

Please remember, I’m still a feminist at heart 😉

Friday night in Second Life (part 1)

February 16, 2007

Other than a frustrating trip trying to buy sneakers (I hate it when guys try to hit on me when I’m trying to shop), Friday night in SL has gone rather smoothly. I had the opportunity to talk to Annie Fukai, a friend I met a few nights ago at ColeMarie’s club (or lounge, however you want to refer to it). After ranting a bit to her about my inability to shop in peace :), I told her about my blog and asked if she would mind if I linked to her MySpace page. She agreed, so I am happy to share it with all of you: http://www.myspace.com/toeduprocks

She is part of a band called Toe’d Up (seems like a lot of my friends so far are musicians, and here I am with no musical talent whatsoever). When you check out her page (and I know you will), I especially recommend you listen to “Blind,” which is my favorite of the songs she has listed.

She has a concert coming up in SL on Tuesday. I don’t have the particulars, but I’ll be sure to share them when I do.

So much talent. Maybe some of it will rub off on me.

More to come . . . soon . . .

First post—ColeMarie concert at the Faerie Gardens

February 16, 2007

I should have started this blog last week, when I first began using Second Life (SL), but I didn’t know at the time I would get so addicted and have so much to talk about.

Anyway, for my inaugural post, I will talk about an SL concert I went to tonight.

ColeMarie Soleil, with whom I recently became friends, held a concert at the Faerie Gardens. I arrived just before the show began to find a large, mostly winged audience huddled in front of the stage. I was glad that I had dressed appropriately, wearing a short emerald green dress with light blue butterfly wings (think Tinkerbell).

The concert was the first I have attended in SL, and I really enjoyed it. The crowd was incredibly supportive of ColeMarie, as her tip jar clearly showed. Though most of the music were covers, she graced us with some of her own work as well, including a song about SL.

The concert lasted nearly two hours, well past the time it was to end (the crowd couldn’t get enough). ColeMarie told us that her voice was a little scratchy because she had been sick, but like a real trooper, she stuck in there and kept playing for her audience.

Great night, overall. If you’re a Second Lifer, you should stop by and see ColeMarie at Pandora’s Box (I think you have to leave the apostrophe out to get it to show up in Search).

Check out the Chloe’s Flickr link to the right to see more images from the concert.

Until next time . . . Chloe
