Mad hats

Last saturday I went to the “Show and Tell” which is held by Virtual Ability once a week. People share what they have found during the week, from experiences to funny things. Slatan Dryke showed us this gorgeous and unique top hat that look like a wooden house with chipmunks all over it. As I love funny and different things, I asked for the LM and off I went to the Mad Hattery store.

The slogan of the store is “a hat for your every occasion” and oh boy! how true that is. The store has a ton of amazing, inventive and funny hats, and at very good prices too. Of course I couldn’t resist and bought a couple from the boards and two from the gashas there.

However this is just not another store. Where can you find a store where there are bump cars you can rezz or an Intan to dance? Well the Mad Hattery has it, so grab a couple of friends and head there to a complete different shopping experience.

Oh! And there is a sale on Christmas hats until the 1st of December, so hurry hurry!

Particles and music

On Friday, after the Linden Tour, my good friend Annie Brightstar called me to watch a particle show. Being slightly traumatized by the several previous crashes, I hesitated a bit but ended up taking the taxi to LEA 23, and glad I did!

Venus Adored particle show with music by DJ Sunshine was simply breath-taking.The show spanned across LEA23 and 24 and was hosted by Betty Tureaud & Mandel Solano.

No pictures can translate the beauty of the whole show. Each song had its own theme and we were surrounded by light and music.

If you have a chance to watch the light shows by Venus, please don’t miss it. And if even I didn’t crash in a full SIM with tons of particles, no one will 🙂

For those of you who are recent in SL seeing a Linden Lab representative in world is no more than a myth. However back in the days, it was common to stumble upon them all over the grid.

With Ebbe Altberg on the wheel we now have the Lindens back on the grid and yesterday there was a tour to the new Headquarters of the Linden Department of Public Works (LDPW) moles.  “Mole” is the last name of the Linden Lab’s employees in charge of the Public Works in Mainland – road maintenance, public buildings and so forth.

The new Headquarters are in a beautiful sim called Meauxle Bureaux and the Lumiere Building, a creation of Kayle Matzerath for last year’s Fantasy Fair, is simply amazing and a sort of Museum for Second Life.

Meauxle Bureau

I arrived there early, since I wanted to take some pictures before the crowd started to arrive and I started to crash.

The village is amazingly build with lots of little corners and the Moles’ offices/homes open to everyone to look around.

Milli Mole home

Xiola Linden was the first to arrive and gave us a small tour to the main building and, by then, the sim was already full. Other Lindens started to arrive and soon I started to crash (*sigh*). However, being in SL for almost 8 years (my 8th rezzday will be this month on the 25th), I never saw so many Lindens together.

It feels good to see them again in world. Brings this strange feeling that LL still cares for us, a feeling that had been gone for the past 3 years. Take a tour at the place and who knows if you will find “your” Linden too?

Welcome back guys!

(The blue dots and tags are Lindens and Moles, this was the last snap I could take before my computer completely crashed on me)

Linden attack

I was searching for some music to listen and I came across Taylor Swift and “Untouchable”. I didn’t know either and I really liked the tune. So here it is for you to enjoy.

Going through Facebook, I noticed some pictures posted by my SL cousins Flor and Chagal taken at the Intouchable sim. As I don’t believe in coincidences I thought that could be a sign for me to log in to SL and head to Intouchable for a nice photo session without crashes.

And you know what? It worked! I didn’t crash not even once!

Fall Colours

I use the CtrAlT Studio Viewer, which is apparently a lighter version of FireStorm with all the good FS features. Good thing is I only crash 2 times per session, instead of the usual 10 in FS lol.

However, when I logged in yesterday I was a beautiful cloud and, after waiting a couple of minutes without rezzing, decided to log out and clear cache, which I haven’t done for months.

When I logged back in, inventory was not loading so I sat on the balcony at home and fell asleep.

Sleeping

Finally inventory loaded and with new energy I headed to Frisland. After getting my backpack (free at landing point in men and women versions and 2 colours each) and hiring a bike I pedaled away to check the place.

Cycling

The sim is beautiful, full of little cozy corners and lots of new four-legged friends to meet. The foxes showed me the way to the waterfall and after hanging with them for a bit, I waved goodbye and went to check the rest of the island.

When I was trying to head south, following the weathervane, I crashed, but I will return to Frisland to discover more hidden corners.

What I am wearing:
New release from Gizza Fall Outfit IV (including ankle boots, shades and purse)
Hair from Kletva (store closed)

Tequilla Sunrise is one of my favourite cocktails and when I heard of Just Another Tequilla Sunrise headed there to have a drink.

I was greeted with a LM and a very friendly and nice notecard by Arol Lightfoot, who did a wonderful job at the island. With lots of little corners and hideouts to discover, no detail was left to chance. If you are into photography, take your camera and poses (you can rezz there) and pay her a visit. If you are not, it is a great place to hangout.

Cheers!

Orchids and Bats

My good friends FlorMarie and Portus Phortus opened a new store. So me and my SL cousins decided to go there and check it out.

Orchid is a beautiful store, very well decorated and we hanged out there for quite some time. The clothes are beautiful and quite affordable, so we got a couple of dresses and waited for our letter to appear on the balloon, which I found to be quite innovative compared with the usual letter boards we see across the grid.

But you know how (some) guys and shopping are, right? Chagal insisted that we should go and see that “gorgeous” Ferrari. FlorCampestre and I wanted to go on a shopping spree, but ended up going with him.

He decided to get the car and go for a ride, me and Flor wanted to go shopping.Then all hell broke and guess what? The Ferrari needs a new windshield…
