Today's theme at The Lava Pit was "Tarzan and Jane". You know how it works: Best dressed male and female get a prize of L$ 250. The winners are chosen with a voting system.
I never won a contest like that before, so I decided to try my best and I went shopping for the best Jane-costume available in SL. So I found "SD Jane Costume Single Pack (furu)" at Stellar Designs for L$ 275.

Now anyone with half a brain can calculate I had already spent more than the prize there was to be won, but I was not satisfied yet; I also wanted a new hair: "!TAUNT >> Santa Barbara > Pirate Pack". A nice hair with three long flexi ponytails. The pirate pack holds nine different colors, the color I wear in the picture is called wheat_lick.

Of course I did not win the prize. I am beginning to understand these contests are not won by the best looking avatar, but by the one with most friends...

Stellar Designs

This job as a dancer is a wonderful excuse to buy more and more sexy clothing. And my colleagues know just where to shop for it. So they pointed me to Stellar Designs. That shop is absolutely packed with nice stuff. I wanted to buy everything I saw there, but I had to make a choice. So I bought:

SD Melrose Flex (furu) (see picture)
SD Bandeau Top Fat Pack (furu)

In the picture my top is already off. Underneath the top and the skirt is a very nice bikini...

I got the job as a dancer, but I soon found out that my avatar was not quite ready for it. If you work as a dancer in a nightclub, a good skin is a must-have.
But skins are terribly expensive. I cannot afford to make a mistake with this, so I have thoroughly studied several fashion blogs, looking for skin reviews, until I thought I knew which skin a wanted. Then I got several demo skins and tried them on.

And here is the skin I finally selected: HYBRID II - Nymphet - Face #16 by Santana Lumiere. I picked one with a moderate amount of make-up on the face, so it can be worn both during the day and in the evening. I am not going to buy several make-up options of the same skin! If you do that you buy the same skin over and over again with just a little difference in the face. I think that is just not fair. L$ 1000 is a lot of money, but a good skin is worth it. I will not pay that same amount again for just a different lipstick and eyeliner.

As you can see this skin is a real quality product. I have decided not to 'do pink' in my blog, but I can assure you the kitty looks just as well as the rest of it...

More land

I have bought more land. I know this is gonna cost me a monthly amount of tier, but a 512 sqm plot is just too small for me. I am a builder and I want to run a business! So I have found myself a 1024 sqm plot in the Yeodeol sim for L$ 16999. It is expensive, but the prices of land seem to be moving in only one way: Up!

Dazzle is a shop full of high quality dresses.
They are going to close the shop down...
So now they have a final sale.

Second Life on the Internet

There is a lot of information about second life available on the Internet. I have been Googling for it today and I am sure I have just scratched the surface, but still I found some very interesting things already:

  • Second Life Herald
    An online Newspaper about what is happening in Second Life. Sometimes with breaking news, sometimes with background information and sometimes just for fun.

  • Natalia's Second Life Diary Blog
    This girl's blog makes me turn green with envy! How on Earth does she manage to spend so much time on Second Life? Where on Earth did she acquire the skills she is teaching to us in the blog?
    I guess I will just have to accept she started SL earlier than I did and she does not have two RL jobs like I do.

  • Ariane
    seems to be active in more than one virtual world. The link points to a great document for learning about Second Life for both newbies and people who have been around somewhat longer.

I bought some land!

Yes, I very soon decided to sign up for a premium account and then I started to check for "first land" for sale several times a day. But there was never any available. Maybe first land is a thing of the past?

So I stopped waiting and started looking for any type of land. It would have to be mainland (no convenant!) and reasonably priced. And I found it! A nice 512 sqm plot in the Wards sim. The price was a lot more than I had been hoping to pay (first land would have cost me only L$ 512), but at least I can start building now!

I had found a very nice freebie house that should fit on a 512 sqm plot. My friend A. yelled: "No! No!" because it consists of 61 prims. He thinks that eats too much out of the 117 prims allowed on a 512-lot. But it turned out to be even worse: The house would not fit: It is designed for a square lot and mine is oblong :(

OK then! I will rebuild it myself using a lot less prims. The creator of this house must have thought a beautiful look counts more than the number of prims, but I see many ways I can reduce it without making it look less beautiful.

For a start I broke off the part that will not fit on my land.

A Girl Is Born!

Hello, World!

My name is White Hyacinth and I rezzed just now.

I have always been very interested in virtual reality. In the past I have used Digital Space, a 3D-world with audio chat. Unfortunately I could not build anything in there: I did have the knowledge, but I could not find out how to make the things I built available on a server for public viewing.

Later I found out about There: Another virtual world, but without voice chat. Unfortunately the video board in my PC (Matrox; yucky!) was not suitable for that system.

Since a few years there is also Second Life. I have hesitated for a long time, but nowadays you hear so much about it! I could no longer withstand my curiosity and I went to have a look. And I was amazed. This is so much better than Digital Space and There! I am instantly hooked!

I have started with a free account, just to try things out, but I like what I see so much I think I will soon upgrade to premium member.

I have been a blogger for years but I want to keep my Second Life seperate from my Real Life, so I have decided to start a separate blog for it. That is what you are reading right now...
