Pandora's box of dreams photo contest

I got personally invited to enter this contest, because I have taken shots of the sim in the past. So I took 6 shots, three in my normal form and three in catfish form.

I want to show them off so here they are! I had fun taking them and even played with Depth of Field for a couple, which I usually don't mess with. So that was a new experience and I will have to play with it more in the future.

I forgot to write down the poses I used, most of them I got at this months round of Enchantment though. The none mermaid outfit is Aloha, eh? by deviousMind Slurl


Here is July's FruitFetish

It's called Kiwilicious and was a bit tricky due to the pose that worked my wings blocked most of my body, so I adjusted the transparency on them in world and this is the result!

~Pandora Box of Dreams~ Dream 004: Del Mar Dream

Finally the post about the sim I took the photo here at!

I am just in love with this sim and how they change the build completely every so often. This time the dream is an amazing tropical island. With all manner of cozy nooks and fun things to do.

Del Mar dream is packed with things to do, you can fly with a parrot, have a picnic, go hang gliding or even Jet skis if you can find them!

But it's also just a stunning sim. The palm trees swaying softly, the sound of the animals and the waves crashing. Bring a special someone for a nice date out. Or go by yourself for some relaxing alone time. It's an amazing summer getaway in Secondlife.

On the wings of love

So I picked up an amazing new house for my plot in Steelhead. It's so perfectly whimsical AND it changes seasons. So I have decided it will be the last house I put up. So I am going all out with the furnishing instead of just slapping down some chairs or something. Which means photos. And I deiced that over the fireplace in the living room I needed a big ol wedding photo of me and Adar.

So I spent like, three days looking all the wedding gowns on the marketplace to find one I like. And then another day looking for something for Adar to wear, Went to Ode and took this!

I do plan to make a post showing off the new house once I'm done with it. Still working on some of the rooms. It's so amazing.

And here are the outfit credits for the wedding photo.

A weekend of Hope

“Hope” is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -
And sings the tune without the words -
And never stops - at all -

And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard -
And sore must be the storm -
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm -

I’ve heard it in the chillest land -
And on the strangest Sea -
Yet - never - in Extremity,
It asked a crumb - of me.

~~~ Emily Dickinson

Relay weekend has come and gone, seems like both it happened in a flash and also took forever. So much money raised and even more Hope. Hope that in the Future we wont HAVE to Relay as a cure has been found for Cancer.

And so now that it is over the sims are coming down in a few hours. I managed to get to all but three of the campsites after relay before they where removed by their teams. Some fantastic builds this year. I've got all my photos at the following links photos taken before Relay weekend. I got one shot at least of each of the camps photos taken during Relay, lots of shenanigans with other people and shots of some of the fun avatars that run the track. What other Relay can you run the track with Dinosaurs, rabbits, unicorns, dragons, Timelords, werewoves and other assorted people? Photos taken after Relay. I went into more of the camps and explored their builds. plus some post Relay fun like the sim flood party. And these are just the shots I took of and at the Steelhead Campsite, they are all one of the above links but I pulled them out special because Steelhead is special.

I've put a few select favorite ones on my flikr page *link*, and will be slowly adding them to groups over the next few weeks. Some of my groups have limits.

And below are my three favorites . But I do recommend looking at the above links to realize just how AMAZING Relay for Life of Secondlife really IS.

This Dragon crossed two sims and was simply amazing

Fantasy Faire's camp. There are items here from at LEAST the last four Fantasy Faires

I loved this build, It was right next to Steelhead. You donated and then clicked a sign, sadly it only worked once, and a candle on the lake lit up. All weekend the egg was un-cracked and the goal was the light up all the candles to crack it. That didn't quite happen but they cracked it anyway. And this is what was inside.

I gave the totals for the year already, though it may raise a wee bit by the time the Relay wrap up party happens in August. Not sure why it takes a month for that to happen but hey, more money!

Now, to get back to "normal" Second Life things.

Relay for Life of Secondlife 2015 Is over for the year

The joy and bittersweetness of it is setting in. Was it a record year like the past few? No, but after last years big 10th anniversary blow out, that makes sense. Bit of a scale back after all the extremeness of last year. Was it still a great year? Of course! We raised $262,848 with more due in by the end of August! That's not a small amount. 1229 people ran the track, and I made my personal goal of beating last years 12 laps by one lap. Despite some worse then ever sim crossing issues before the Luminara ceremony. AND I made my none Secondlife donation goal! look!

The last $50 came from a Ren Faire friend who is a survivor. They've asked I not state their name though. Got it in JUSt as I was about to go to bed so made for a GREAT ending for my Relay!

Now, to go into these camps in more detail and see all the great things people built! Some great looking interactive builds this year!

And I leave you with a shot of Steelheads Camp. Lunar did a great job this year.

The Luminaria Ceremony

Missing those gone and Thinking of those fighting the cancer battle.

I chose to hold a lantern this year instead of a candle to represent the bright light that Relay is in the fight towards candle. Leading the way to a cure.
