A Proud Procrastinator

Okay, so, I was clicking around and...stumbled upon this. I know, I said that the picture blog was coming up next well... I'm a procrastinator, so things never tend to happen when I say they will. But I am working on it. I've already got a picture for Juliet, Cinderella, and I'm working on Alice, Ariel, and Belle. Might even get a Silence pic if I can drag one of my friends someplace and force black angel wings on him. ;) I'm still all open for suggestions, even, but...I'm broke so I'm improvising with freebies and other such things I've found buried in my inventory.
Right, but what I stumbled on was a meme-type-thing for, what else, procrastination. As I've said that is something very near and dear to my heart. So, first, just click here for a link to the blog post by Strawberry Singh that started it off. And, well, now here's my answers...well, no, a picture first.

  • What is the rez date for your current SL Avatar that you use most often?
That would be Haisley who was first rezzed...August 11, 2011.
  • Where was the first place you made friends as a newb and got to know people in Second Life?
Oh Well, first place that comes to mind is the RP sim I'm at most often but... Right, first place was, odd enough, a freebie store... I think Freebie Galaxy. A weird place to make any friends, but, hey it worked.
  • Where do you spend most of your SL time now?
That would be at a RP sim called Cadair Braeden. That's not that surprising seeing as I've got some people I love to death OOC that RP there. (Yes, I'll admit, once or twice I've ICly wanted to push them in a river....even though one is a very big dragon...)
  • Who is your closest friend in Second Life? (only pick one) 
I can't choose, but I can say two, instead of one. That's...close enough, right? Right. Salix Southpaw and Taeem. I love them and pester them in IM often enough I'm pretty certain they know that.
  • What is the most favorite thing in your inventory? (only pick one)
Again, I can't choose! Guess I'm an indecisive procrastinator... Anyhow, it's either the Capture hair by Magika (that changes colors!) that I use both IC and OOC or...the Morgana necklace that comes with the Morgana dress by ViGo.
  • The last thing you purchased in Second Life? 
Purchased makes me think lindens...and I haven't used lindens in forever. Everything I get is usually free. But the last thing I actually spent something on....would be my skin. Harmony-07 by Delish....but that was back when the stuff there was dollarbies and I could afford it. :P But the last thing I actually got is Baby Blue Polka Dot Hair bow FallenDoll Designs.
  • What color clothing does your avatar wear most often?
Hrm...well, usually different shades of blue. Which just so happens to be my favorite color, pure coincidence, I'm sure.
  • Do you prefer to walk, run or fly?
Walk. If i try to run I'll end up who knows where thanks to lag and...flying is just as, if not more, hazardous for me.
  • What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done in SL?
Crazy? I'm not that much of an interesting person with action, but, maybe going onto a virtual roller coaster called 'The Spider' that I was pulled to by Salix? I think that counts as I wouldn't even get within ten feet of a roller coaster in RL.
  • Who would you like to play YOU, in the movie of your SLife?
Well, that would require either a blonde and a brunette or someone who would wear a wig... Ah, but in either case I've honestly no clue. Maybe it's in part because I don't pay attention to actresses and such, but...still, no clue.

Now, seeing as I've got that done...I should probably sleep. yes I even procrastinate with sleep, being the night owl I am. So goodnight or good morning or however and I'll get the story pictures and such up soon. Promise!

Cheers for Easter!- Something New

So, Something New has got some new things and a couple of them are pretty neat. Well, actually I liked them all, to be perfectly honest, but I'm a friendless- Ah, no, that's wrong, all my friends in SL are just people who are over in Europe and were asleep when i took these pics. Actually I should've been asleep with how late I did this myself, but...well, I'm not that sensible. But there was a version of the Easter prop which is for couples (aww) but I had to do the single's one as well as there was another couple one and a friends one.
 Seeing as SL was deciding to be mean, I couldn't get the bunny ears and tail I wanted to use. So sad about that...but, here's the poses anyhow for the single's Easter Bridge prop. I think they're kind of cute. Also something worth note: I'm short by SL standards (5 foot something) and I had really no issue with really all of the poses, so that's a plus for all you other shorties out there who have issues with say...danceballs and other such things.

Sexy Stand
Ground Sit
All these? Mah eggs!
Aw, doesn't the chick look so happy? And it's not running from me!
Waiting for Easter to actually get here.

Again, SL was mean to me so i couldn't have pom-poms for the cheer poses. I decided to have impromptu pom-poms... I think they work, at least as magical energies balls, no? The pictures include both cheer pose sets.
Cheer Set 1, Pose 1
Powerful energy balls and...helicopter spin maybe?
Pose 2
Pose 3
Weee! Didn't know I could jump like that.
Pose 4
Pose 5
Set 2, Pose 6
Pose 7
You know, I tried for a cheer team once...this type of thing is one reason why I didn't get in.
Pose 8
Pose 9
Pose 10
Cheers for new Something New poses!

I'm Official Now!

Yes siree-bob, I'm a blogger for something other than my own randomness now. Yay! So, basically what that means is that the shop (Something New) will be getting at least one blog a month....or whenever there are some new props and poses to poke at. That also means more pictures *nods* And, let's face it, who doesn't love pictures? In an ever changing world like SL, pictures can become important as well as not so much.
Pictures in SL capture memories as much as they do in RL, even if the people in the pic don't look the same the next day, it's still a memory. The simple fact that things can change so quickly, is what makes the pictures even more important. Not to mention you can make some really great things with just the windlight (something that changes how the lighting is, basically, for you non-SL users) and poses and props and all sorts of stuff available across the virtual world. You don't even have to use the best graphics to get some really amazing pictures, which is something that I tend to stick with as I personally can only get to medium settings. But I'm not saying that just because I can't go to high or ultra, it's because it's true. Sure, it might edge more to 'realistic'-ish with higher graphics or might look nice, but that doesn't take away form what you can do with your lower settings. (not to mention the reduced lag which allows movement)
You don't even need lindens with all the free stuff on MP (marketplace). Hell, I've gotten quite a few free poses I love and have used. Then there's also the avi-look, lots of free stuff for that. so, really, anyone who can use SL and manage the camera to get in the right angle, mess with the windlight, and who has some patience, can take decent (if not very good) pics in SL. So don't be discouraged if your pics suck originally (I know mine did and I'm not even saying I'm amazing now, just better), keep trying and I'm sure you'll get it. :)

It works! Finally!

I don't know why, but everytime I have tried to add a picture, the bloggy-thing has been mean. But it's working now's some pictures. :D

See more here (that's my Flickr) (and by more, I mean a lot more). So, yes, I've been a busy bee with photo taking and I've gotten some pretty good ones lately. This is mostly just a catch-up, but it's also a lead into what will be my next blog: a photo blog with different stories, plays, etc. as the center. So, once I get all the pics I want, I'll upload the blog and there ya go. If anyone has any suggestions for pictures is should do for the next blog, leave a comment, and I'll see what I can do.
