In a place long forgotten by men, Mother Nature took over and the spirits of the forest can be seen wandering around.

Abandonned

Spirits of the forest

A lighthouse, barely seen among the trees, scatters its light around, letting us see glimpses of what once must have been a beautiful place.

Lonely Watcher

But then you get struck by terrifying sights.

Cursed

Lonely witnesses of times past can be seen, turned into stone by some old curse. What happened here? What terrible events hide behind those images?

Fading away

Are you brave enough to go there and find out?

I don’t know if it only happens to me, but with the cold weather I am not comfortable in dressing summer clothes and need to feel warm and comfy.

Also the random travels tend to be to winter themed islands and sometimes we discover some gems.

Let it snow! is one of them.

Leave you with a song and some pictures. Stay warm and enjoy.

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.

Peaceful living

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

As promised I will show you today the outfit inside the cow I bought the other day. The name of the outfit from FBD (MOoH!) is Poppies and Leathers and comes both with shirt (shown) and without shirt. All the pieces are in mesh and are really well made and fit perfectly.

I took the pictures at this great residential island, now “dressed” for winter, called Silver Bird build by Vita Camino. The cottages, scattered around the island are all different from each other and beautifully decorated. The common grounds are beautifully decorated with hangout and a small playground. If you are looking for a winter hideout this is the place to go.

Take your scarf and mittens and head there. Leave you here some pics I managed to take before I crashed (S-I-X times *sigh*)

Yesterday when I logged in I had two unusual experiences that I would like to share with you.

Going through all the notices received, I got this one from Cosmopolitan and headed there to get a beautiful outfit from FBD with a 50% discount which I will show you in another post.

Headed home and rezzed the box. I never had bought anything from FBD before, so imagine my surprise when I see this rezzing in my dressing room. Congrats to Darlriada Delwood for the imagination and thinking out of the box.

Dress in a cow

The second surprise was a delightful IM from Jana Nexen, congratulating me for my photos and inviting me to visit her SIM – Sense.

I have never heard of Sense before (I don’t make much myself most of the time lol) and had some time on my hands so I headed there.

The island was built by Jana and Soo Vemoo and it is beautiful. A quiet place, full of games, so well build-in to the landscape that you almost miss them. For those of you who like to play zingo, there is also a skybox at 3000 meters high. The island is almost lag free and a very peaceful place to hangout with your friends or alone.

It has been a while since I wrote a post, but to tell you the truth I have been feeling kind of lame and haven’t logged in much into SL.

Last week one of my good friends in SL called me on my mobile (yeah I am that crazy, have virtual friends whom I speak with in RL :P) and asked me: “When are we going to Wonderland?”

All of a sudden it stroke me. I wasn’t logging in because I hadn’t anything to do. I have to always be involved in something or otherwise I get bored.

As usual, when me and my friends get together what starts with “lets throw a party” usually ends in building a complete scenery and associated with some photography exhibition at the Gallery. Chagal made this gorgeous dance floor and the garden walls, Flor had some great ideas and I took care of the landscaping. And Alice in Wonderland was born, squeezed in a 4096 sqm plot next to the gallery.

We tried to give it the magical ambiance of Lewis Carrol book. Drop by for a visit and if you want your pics on the theme displayed at my Gallery, please contact me inworld (notecard with your name please) during next week and I will provide all the information needed.

If you want to take a look at the place, go down the rabbit hole and enjoy your stay. Most of the pieces scattered are multipose, so bring your friends and have fun.

Down the rabbit hole

The place will be there forever, until we move to the next project. Party soon to be announced too.

“Alice: How long is forever?
Rabbit: Sometimes just a second!”

I already mentioned somewhere that I like to do map hopping and discover little gems that (supposedly) haven’t been blogged yet. The 1st of January was no different and after some of the usual deserted or badly build islands I landed at the Whisper Forest. After everything was loaded I find myself surrounded by beautifully carved gothic arches and an arched pathway in front of me leading to this beautiful forest.

Path to paradise

Explored a lot and took tons of pics and yesterday I showed the place to my good friends Chagal and Flor. We were there for hours (literally) just wandering around and even found new spots I had missed the day before.

It was very hard to choose which pics to put here, but here they go. You can rezz there so grab your gear and if you like leave in comments the link for your pictures. Always love to see the different approaches of the same places. ­čÖé

Antony Switchblade and Peace Edenflower build Imaginaria. According to their own words “This sim was a labor of love.┬á Love between two people.┬á Love that inspired us to imagine a perfect place at this moment in time to nurture it and let it grow.”

And you feel that love in every corner and every detail. The photos don’t translate well enough the wonderful and magical atmosphere of the island.

You have to see for yourselves and while there, snap along and enter the Photo contest running until December 31st. For that send the pics full perms to Antony Switchblade and/or Peace Edenflower or join their Flickr Group.

In an attempt of joining the Christmas Spirit which seems to have taken over the whole planet, I went to check the North Pole Express of my dear friend Glossom.

Arriving at the Landing point I found myself at a train station and waiting for the train to arrive.

Waiting for the Train

I didn’t have to wait for long and off I went, straight to Santa’s workshop

All aboard

The trip was beautiful, a gorgeous landscape and polar bears looking at me in a friendly way.

Once arrived and having visited Santa’s reindeer, I decided to take a look to the rest of the North Pole.

The stables

Watched a movie at the open air cinema (a RL Christmas movie, which I even hadn’t seen before)

Santa's Cinema

Took a stroll after that and, since I have this weird thing of not following directions, I totally disrespected this sign and… well you go and try it and you’ll see what happens ­čśë

Danger

When I recovered from the accident, I paid a visit to the nice polar bears that were getting themselves a bit warmer by the fire.

Unexpected guests

There is more to be seen, the Santa Village, the ice-skating ring, the small island where you can sit quietly watching the landscape around, the church and so many more things (oh and some gifts scattered all over the sim).

Go and take a look and I assure you a lot of fun and nice opportunities for a good photo shooting (you can rezz there, so take your poses and props if you like)

Merry Christmas to all!

Early this month a collaborative art installation opened at MIC Imagin@rium. It features works from 25 SL artists and also involves a real-life cross-over with the Il Margutta Gallery in Rome.

This installation is based on the work of Elina Chauvet, a RL Mexican artist┬á who started the Zapatos Rojos project in Ciudad Juarez in Mexico back in 2009. The number of women being murdered and disappearing led her to this project. When asked why red shoes in an interview, she answered that while she was researching stories she found a common thread – shoes. “Several of the missing young women worked in shoe stores, were on their way to find work in a shoe shop, or were going shopping for shoes. This similarity caught my attention.”, she states.

The installation in Second Life is organised in a way that you can focus on each work of each artist without distractions so you can absorb the whole message. If you have some time to spare do go and take a look at this amazing art exhibition. It will be on until January 7th, so you still have a couple of weeks to go and visit.

The artists participating in this project are: Alpha Auer, Blue Tsuki, Cica Ghost, Daniele Daco Monday, Giorgio Mayo, Giovanna Cerise, Kicca Igaly, La Baroque, Lookatmy Back, Maddomxc Umino, Merlino Mayo, Mila Tatham, Mitaki Slade, Myyns Mayo, Nessuno Myoo, Nexuno Thespian, Nino Vichan, Paola Mills, Rubin Mayo, Sniper Siemens, Solkide Auer, Swina Allen, Violetta Inglewood, Viviana Houston  and Mexi Lane owner of MIC Imagin@rium.
