‘Silly’ by Cica Ghost

Cica’s latest creation is very silly. We popped in for a quick look – and fly – around last night. Feels like exploring someone’s wild imagination, which I suppose is exactly what we were doing! We are loving her work yet again x

Got our Sparkle on

A few months ago the wonderfully talented Sparklebottom Lasertits approached us after seeing some of our photos on Flickr. She said she would like to photograph us. We had both been gawping at her amazing and sensual Second Life photos for some time so naturally we were very honoured to be asked, and ooh just a little bit excited about it too!

So far we’ve done a couple of individual shoots with her, and one with us both together so we thought it was high time we shared her photos here so they can be enjoyed together in one place.

If you have a Flickr account please click through and give each one of them a like 🙂

A trip to Svarga

As with The Lost Gardens of Apollo, Svarga is another historic build in Second Life.

We visited this tropical island a few weeks ago, took a tour on the back of a giant wasp and took a few snaps in and around the central tower and library.

There’s lots more than just this to see, we also explored some more and had fun playing with some unusual musical instruments we found. We were enjoying it too much to spend the whole time looking through the camera lens!

If you fancy visiting either for the first time or if you remember it from years ago then here is your taxi to Svarga

Second Pride 2019

The main stage in the park at Second Pride 2019

June is Pride month and every year this is celebrated in Second Life at Second Pride. This year it ran from 14 to 23 June. Abby has been to Second Pride before many times but, given that my first Rezday isn’t the till 15 July, this was my first time to experience it.

Second Pride 2019

This year’s Second Pride sim is modelled on a New York City block with the stunning main stage and dance area being in the park. This year is the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riot, and the sim includes a replica of the Stonewall Inn among other exhibits.

Abby and I visited Second Pride a few times both to explore the city and to enjoy the party in the park. Outside of the park there were loads of shops and exhibits, as well as there being stalls in the park itself.

We arrived early one evening and had fun on the fairground rides before everyone else arrived in the park later that night.

The atmosphere down in the park is incredible. It feels so warm and lovey to party together with people who identify across the LGBT+ spectrum and beyond with open-minded allies. Being here with each other feels extra special. For me personally this represents the best of Second Life.

We returned a couple of days later and went for coffee at a beautiful little cafe just around the corner from the park. We took photos of each other ❤️

A lovely place to relax during the day.

Then later that evening we hit the dance floor again. So wonderful to be a part of this in Second Life! 🥰

Abby and I would like to thank the organisers for creating such a wonderful Second Pride this year. If you haven’t been yet then get down there right now! Even if by the time you read this you’ve missed the parties it’s well worth exploring this little slice of New York City. 🏳️‍🌈❤️

The Lost Gardens of Apollo

The Lost Gardens of Apollo

One of the good things about being a relative noob (but learning fast, watch out! lol) is there is always so much in Second Life that I haven’t seen.

Recently Abby took me to see The Lost Gardens of Apollo. This is, Abby tells me, a very old sim made before the days of mesh and other such modern things I grew up with (apparently there used to be pose balls everywhere!)

Anyway so… it was lost – as in went offline – but the Lindens brought it back on (I assume) a sim they look after as it is considered to be an “historic build” which should mean it’s here to stay. More info about it here.

It was quite lovely and charming and fun to explore. Here are some pics from our visit:

If you fancy stepping back in time, or if you’ve never seen it then here is your taxi.

Goodbye Ukivok!

Sorry to read that Ukivok is due to close in six days time. Abby and I visited Ukivok back in April, and climbed all the way to the top. It is very detailed and atmospheric. If you haven’t seen it you have just six days left and it’s highly recommended.

Furillen

Ukivok opened at the end of March, and now it’s time to move on. So the sim will close for good next week, on Wednesday 26 June.

This was rather a special sim for us: Ukivok has a wonderfully rich and intriguing, albeit poignant, history, and its stunning location – as well as those stilt houses – were quite a challenge to recreate in Second Life. If the reviews by  Inara PeyMaddy Gynoid and Diomita and Jenny Maurer are anything to go by – alongside comments in the guestbook – the sim was widely appreciated, so our thanks to all who came by and especially to those who were kind enough to let us know they liked it.

The sim’s Flickr group was busy – especially in the first few weeks – and now contains more than 850 pictures. Here are some of the highlights …
