So I have been in and out of SL all year long, which is an interesting experience, when I got used to the idea of being logged in most of the day. School has been keeping me busy and it is hard to find a large period of time that I can relax, take pictures (and edit them), shop and hang out with friends. But in a way, I want school to take up my time, but not just homework, but time spent with friends in the real world. When I started playing SL I had only a few friends to rely on. As I changed schools, I began to have a whole bunch of people that I could hang out with and that would be my socializing. What is even more signicate, when I first joined, I was completely shattered. I didn’t know who I was because a part of me disappeared, which lead to my collapse. Something happened one day last semester. I found out that i am going to be on student senate next year, something just clicked then. Suddenly I realized that I feel like more myself, then I have ever had. Suddenly the bad memories were pushed into the far back of my memory bank. Sure I still remember them, but I know they cannot hurt me and that I am someone who is incredibly fabulous. Also over the course of the semester, I had a crush and it was a big deal because I actually told him that I liked him! Back to the day that i find out out I’m on Senate. During the day, I suddenly realize that perhaps I’m almost done with SL. The purpose of finding who i was and becoming able to deal with interacting with people was achieved and the only thing that I see SL as something that keeps me behind the computer, when i should be out with people in my RL. I know that people have found love in SL, but the idea of not being able to be with them for long periods of time isn’t realistic, and I want my love to be physically present. My RL is becoming more important, there are people outside of the SL and I want to meet them and have fun with them. This isn’t to say that I haven’t found amazing friends in SL and don’t want to keep in contact with them, just avatars are getting boring and hiding behind breeding digital bunnies isn’t going to improve my social life. SL holds a special place in my heart because this month Adia turned 3. I have been in SL for three years and I feel it is time to leave at a certain point. I gave myself Adia’s 4 rez date, May 3rd, 2011 to log out for a period of time. At that time I will be finishing up with my undergraduate work and hopefully will be heading to grad school in the fall. Second Life has been a large component to my undergraduate career and perhaps it is time to say farewell.

I have sold my soul to Plurk. I love plurk. Any post over 140 characters is too long. lol So after a nice break from blogging I’m back. So the whole art gallery thing didn’t work out. It would have taken a bunch of my time and I didn’t want to run another business, we all know how that goes. Anyway Adia has been demanding some air time for fashion so she is going start with this post!

Fashion (Insert Witty Noun) #1 LeLutka Spring 09 Collection

Let’s face it either you love the brand or you can’t stand the brand. Personally I love it. And with this collection I LOVE LeLutka. So lets break down the collection shall we.

Color Pallet: Soft and feminine. Pinks, sages, pale blues, and greens dominate the collection, very spring, very crisp. Personally I like strong colors so I wasn’t feeling the colors too much so my choices where the dark blues, olives, browns, and blacks.

Silhouettes: This season Minnu and Thora went with soft draping instead of the geometric trends of RL Spring 09. The sculpting on each piece was impeccable, although I had an issue with fit, even though I’m on the thin side of the av. Notable pieces are the Olimpia pants, Satine pants, Simone dress, Olympia sweater and the Shiri top

Fabrics: Breathable fabrics were key, cotton, chiffon, etc. Only the formal pieces was where the fabric was heavy.

Issues: Fit!!!!!!! It bugs me to no end when my smallish avatar has to enlarge stuff because it is too small! I think they should have put a resize script in the clothes so that way it is easy to do also. Grr. lol
My other beef with this collection was a lot of basics, t-shirts, tanks, jeans, sweater dresses, etc. I don’t shop at LeLutka for basics or mall clothes. I want COUTURE, like Alexander McQueen & company!!! I really liked their first collection because it was unique, out there, mind you not as good quality, but none the less different. I don’t mind paying more for an outrageous outfit. While the silhouettes weren’t, say, average, they weren’t exactly different and out of the box. In fact now that I think about it, the Dea shirt was in The Sims: Open for Business. Now I understand that designers do borrow looks from each other, but still it wasn’t innovative and that is what I’m looking for.
I have saved the biggest issue for last. FUG! There is an hyper busy floral print dress that I swear looks like something my grandmother would have worn. GAG! I will post a picture of it when I go home, but man it is UGLY! While in the same fabric there is a dress in a different cut that looks young and fresh.

Edit: Pictures are here!

Got to go! Bye

So if you haven’t heard OnRez is closing its doors because it is being bought out by Second Life and Xstreet is going to be meshed with the viewer. I use OnRez and their oh-so-nice vendors for my business. While I could switch to Xstreet, I don’t want to. Also since the business is oh-so-successful I don’t want to keep flushing money down the toilet. So it is closing. Meaning that all my lamps are going on sale for $100. It is fun building the lamps and I might still build them just for fun. Links to the shop are below. It ends when OnRez closes, on the 11th

Now, I want to say on happy note that I’m going to open an art gallery on the sims! It is going to be a small time affair with no really big plans. I’m going to be renting out a loft in the Holy Dove apartment building. I want to have small shows with like meet the artist, parties, and stuff like that. I have no clue what to call it, but I’m writing the rundown tonight, after hw of course. It should be a fun project to run. Anyway got to go tutor!

I’m back, for reals this time. I ran into some issues regarding the classes that I need to be taking and I needed to focus on that before posting.

So anyway my Holidays were decent. My break wasn’t memorable and finally I’m back in school! With that said chances I won’t be on SL as regular as I have been. However school hasn’t stopped Adia from being the vain diva that she is and she wanted to do some fashion pictures with her hot new hair and skin. One image does a some nipple action going on, but it is really small and turned to the side, so it isn’t exactly NSFW, so it is up to you if you want to view that image. BTW Lofty Lighting is closing since OnRez is closing. I’m going to have a blow out sale so look for that! 🙂

happy-holidays
Hope you and yours have a warm holiday season!

I will be back after the holidays!

There might be another post after this, but I felt the need to do a random update.

  • Monte Carlo Night is off. Doing Winter Ball in December when I have more time to set it up.
  • Friends, please send Christmas wishlists to me or Adia and we will see which gift is the cheapest.
  • I will DJ this Sunday, 4-6pm
  • Cat found this new crazy store called -RC- Cluster. It has the most random stuff for really good prices! I will get a SLURL asap. Best of all I got a free gift for being a blogger so I will have to check that stuff out and report back. And I will have pictures. YAY
  • Speaking of pictures, I took some at the Princeton sims and will post those. Unlike the previous times where it has been all untouched, I have decided to play around with the images. Also I’m thinking about following, if I have time, the Mastermind’s challenges and post them here. So that way I have another regular feature, unlike most of my just random posts.
  • Dollarbie lamp at the store! Owly has been bugging me to make one for a friend’s freebie group, so I made a simple pendant. Nothing fancy, only in-world, not OnRez. See Blogroll for the SLURL to the shop. Since I’m not at home right now, I can’t post a pic, although I might post it when I get home.
  • I have decided to dj on Sunday for those who can’t make Friday’s Halloween Party. Music will be the same, just in different order. Costumes preferred. Major Lift
  • Still no update on Mercury. Need to get minutes from meeting. Will try to get back there and do some work.
  • For the Americans in the audience, yes I have at least one reader, please go and vote! Yes I know it has nothing to do with SL(tm), but still.
  • Saw one of my old good SL(tm) friends last night. Was really happy.
  • Got to get sunglasses for Adia for a quick photo. Perhaps find the right pose aswell. Awesome stuff at Cachet, all females need to check it out ad you will find some must haves. lol
