Hello 2020!

As we say good bye 2019 I’m thinking about what a year it’s been for me, in “both lives”. Well, I’m one who doesn’t separate the two, but I’m not going to talk about that right now.

What a year it’s been! I’ve only two years as a resident; a year and a half ago I started taking pictures and getting familiar with the viewer camera tools. I did a couple of blog post at the end of 2018, just for fun. Then in the beginning of 2019 I decided I wanted to give blogging a serious go so I found a couple of sponsors that were willing to give a total newbie a chance and the ball started rolling.

After seeing each other online for 8 months, M and I met up and went on vacation together in June. It was wonderful and the most significant thing that happened in my life in 2019 but I’m not going to talk more about that here.

In August I celebrated reaching 1K followers by hosting a photo contest, which was awesome fun for me and I got nothing but positive feedback from those who participated.

Blogging takes hard work and dedication, from the start. I pride myself with having a quality blog and a high Flickr engagement. What’s the use of having 5K followers if you’re not engaging them? Will they remember your picture? Will they notice the brand you’re showcasing? Will they read your blog? Click on that Slurl? No, no, no and no. Ok, now I got derailed for a bit. Or maybe not, because..

In October I was nominated for The Bloggies. Being nominated was a great honour and it told me that I had managed to successfully enter the SL blogosphere and that my blogging was being appreciated by others. To those who nominated me, I’m sending a big big thank you your way.

So what’s in store for 2020? There’s a trip to the US in the very near future. I’ll of course continue blogging and I’m sticking to my all-round style because I love the freedom it gives me, the versatility. Every product is different, every picture lives its own life and sometimes it has a story to tell. What else? Whatever happens, happens. I’m approaching the new year with a positive mindset and my dreams and hopes for the future intact. I truly hope you can say the same. If not, then I wish 2020 is the year of positive change for you. Make it so.

Oh, and today I’m blogging the 2020 Photo Booth by CHEZ MOI! A perfect addition to any New Year’s party, with single, friends and couple poses ready for your guests to take memorable pictures. You can find it at their mainstore and marketplace! And we’re looking mighty fine, wearing the Gage Tuxedo by Lapointe & Bastchild and the Laura Gown by Allure Couture.

Fuyu no Yume

I rarely remember my dreams anymore, I blame a busy life and maybe also not getting enough sleep ;p When I was younger I remembered my dreams and they very often involved wild animals, especially bears and wolves even though I’ve never seen those animals in real life. Where I grew up the most dangerous predator was the wolverine. I used to follow their tracks in winter because I wanted to see them, but I never did find any.

DiMi’s “Happy Bears” winter scene took me straight into a winter dream and with the beautiful new Irezumi tattoo by CAROL G it became this, a bit of a Japanese inspired scene.

The “Happy Bears” backdrop/scene is available at the Driftwood event until January 6th. It’s Copy/Modify and 79 Li out of the box. You can edit linked and move stuff around as you please. It has animated snowfall and the squirrel is animated by Touch. A demo is available at DiMi’s mainstore.

I just fell in love with the Irezumi tattoo the moment I saw it. Now, irezumi literally means ‘inserting ink’ in Japanese. The Traditional Japanese Tattoo “Irezumi” is the decoration of the body with mythical beasts, flowers, leafs, and other images from stories, myths and tales. The impetus for the development of the art was the progression of the woodblock prints and notably the “hero’s heavily decorated with Irezumi”. Wearing Irezumi is an “Aspiration” to life’s goals. You can find this Irezumi tattoo at Men Only Monthly, starting tomorrow, December 20th.

Ok, I’ll go this way

When you undergo a visionary experience, what you are really doing is blowing your socially conditioned, 20th century, hive mind and allowing your brain to, literally, come to its senses.

Steve Kubby

The herd mentality is sometimes so strong you can’t but laugh when you’re watching from the outside. If one person says this is “the shit” (a stupid phrase for the coolest thing in the world) then the whole community thinks it’s “the shit”! Don’t be a part of that herd. Think for yourself, make your own opinion and stand up for what you believe and see yourself grow as a person. Let me tell you, it feels a whole lot better than just following someone blindly. Afraid you’ll be shunned by your peers? Pfff! You gain a whole lot more respect from others by speaking YOUR opinion. Don’t be a sheep.

The Escape Room is a new and wonderfully creepy photo backdrop by DiMi’s Store. It’s 26 Li, Copy/Mod, you can edit and move the pieces as you like. You can find this backdrop at their mainstore and marketplace! Visit the mainstore to see a demo. The cityscape background is not part of the Escape Room backdrop, but everything else is.

The Fae and the Huntsman Pt. 2

The huntsman dreamed he had a dream,
of endless Summer skies,
of silver wings, and faerie rings,
of a queen with opal eyes.

Stephen Howard

We all know this doesn’t end well for the Huntsman, right? I might do a third picture for the final part of the poem… Maybe. For now, let’s let him dream the most beautiful dream. And yeah, the guy behind his avatar. Me. Is a hopeless romantic.

This dreamy scene we’re in is called ‘Enchanted Glade’ and it is made by DiMi’s in a collaboration with AAP* Angel’s Art Pose. The fawn and the white horse are animated on touch and the brown horse contains 6 couple poses. Available now at La Vie En Pose.

Everything apart from our avatars and the hill in the background is included in the scene and rezzed together; ready for a magical photo shoot in an instant!

The Hunter

DiMi’s created this awesome scene, called Dark Concert, with animated flying books, fog, boiling cauldron over a firepit and bubbling goo on the ground. It just looks amazing! The scene is sold whole or in separate pieces. It’s Copy/Mod and 62 Li. It’s available exclusively at the Driftwood event until November 5th. Demo is available at DiMi’s mainstore.
