Silver Waterfalls

Kyli.Dock

Hello everybody,

I’ve found what could be considered  my new favorite sim for photos. It is called Winter Moon. It is just beautiful with the lakes, the waterfalls, the beaches and all the neat places to pose for pictures. The picture below is on one of the many pose items scattered around the sim. There are two massive waterfalls in the center flowing into lakes on both sides (you can see one of the waterfalls in the background). Check it out here: Winter Moon.  I’ve also added more info to the On Location… page.

Villena recently released a new pair of overall shorts and luckily for me, they fit perfectly without any modifications to my shape. My only complaint is the alpha layer at the top of my legs can be seen when sitting, but I will just make my own alpha layer when I get around to it.

New Dress(es)

Kyli.Dresses1

Kyli.Dresses.3

Kyli.Dresses.2

Hello everybody,

Seems I went on a bit of a shopping spree today. One of my favorite stores, Coldlogic, released a bunch of new dresses and other items today. One of the dresses is the kind I love to wear and it fits me like a glove. I bought the black one (I love black clothing for some reason) and will be going back for more colors and the floral prints as well.

I also went to the Zodiac Event, and about spent every single linden I had there. Just about every dress they had fit me like a glove and so I had to have them. Below are pictures of all the dresses I bought today. I will go back for more colors as soon as I get more lindens (and if the Zodiac event is still there too, the Coldlogic stuff isn’t going anywhere).

While I was at Zodiac, I inspected another girls mesh dress as I thought it was adorable (she was too). I saw it was from Sn@tch. I had not been to Sn@tch in over 3 years, I totally forgot that place existed. I remember it being kind of a punk/gothic store. I went there and found they were still there and had changed and added a ton of mesh clothes. I found the dress that girl was wearing, bought it and I love it. You try on the demo, find the size that fits you best, then buy that size and get all the colors included. I like that idea, more stores should do this.

Monday Meme Challenge – What’s Your Digits? Take 3: Proportions

Kyli.Digits2

Hello everybody,

It is meme time again. This week, Strawberry Singh‘s meme challenge is all about body proportions of avatars in Second Life.

I did this one last year, Kyli’s Digits, it was all about our sizes. This year it’s all about body propoprtions. I’ve always had an issue with oddly shaped avatars I see out and about. I’ve seen some that have incredibly long legs, very short arms, giant heads and the one still baffles me is female avatars with enormous hands.

When I originally created my avatar back in 2009, I modeled my avatar to look as close to my real life self as possible. It took me many months to get it right, as I was new and didn’t quite know what I was doing, especially when it came to modifying my own shape. Plus, the hair choices that matched my RL hair hadn’t been created yet (Thank you Truth, Wasabi, Elikatara, etc for all you do).

Finally, I was able to make myself look just like me (I’ve unfortunatley lost a lot of the original pictures I took of myself in SL, they’re on my old, non-functioning computer which is taking up space in my closet at the moment).  Over the years, I’ve changed my appearance slightly here and there, but still maintaining my real life self look as best I can.

Obviously some things are different like my waist isn’t THAT thin, my tattoos on my arms are different and I can’t exactly change my hairstyle this good on a daily basis, but overall, what you see is what you get.

1. Do you try and keep your avatar’s body proportionate and similar to the “average” proportions pictured above?
As close as I possibly can. I’m not the best shape modder out there but I think I got most of it pretty accurate.

2. What do you dislike the most about the SL avatar mesh?
I can’t stand the default feet and ankles. Before prim/mesh feet came out, I never showed my feet. I always wore shoes. I bought a pair of N-Core pumps (that didn’t have built in feet) and I never could stand the ankles so I don’t wear them that much. The hands and fingers I guess are next in my list of dislikes, but I can tolerate them. At least someone finally came out with mesh nails that grow/shrink with your hand size.

3. Does it bother you when you see other avatars that are not proportionate at all?
To no end. I see all these avatars that could look so good, if they add length to their arms, decrease their butts and shorten their legs.

4. Even though this is a virtual world and people can be anything they want to be, do you feel when they are in human form, they should try to keep their proportions close to average?
If they’re in human form, yes. Other forms I suppose it would be ok.

My RL height is 5’4″, I have small hands and short legs in RL just like my avatar.

Thank you,
Kyli 🙂

Hello everybody,

For the first time ever, and I have been meaning to do something like this for a while now, I am doing a blog post about a location instead of my sense of fashion.  I decided to make a post to showcase my home here in Second Life.

I live in a small beach cove I made  on my 32×32 parcel of land. I used some rocks around the border so I wouldn’t see the neighbors (they have some hideous structures set out) and to give my home a more cozy, secluded feel.  I’ve always wanted to live by the beach so now I have my very own beach house.

My home is Paradise Island from Headhunter Island.  It has a small campsite with roaring fire, a hot tub with many singles/couples animations and a small hut with a bed and chairs. It’s small and cozy, just like me.  I haven’t really decorated my home with my own personal furnishings, but I will one of these days.

Hello everybody

It is Monday, June 21st, which means it is officially the first day of summer. Yay!!!

When my friend Shana gets home from work, we will be doing a Summertime photo together for my blog with a more Summertime feel. But for now, I’m doing this post (took this picture a few days ago but have been busy and haven’t had the time to blog).

[NV] released some new tops recently and I love them. I’ve always loved most of NV’s creations but hardly any of them ever fit me without some serious modifications to my avatar. I will mod a little bit as needed but I like to keep any and all editing to an absolute minimum. These new tops fit me perfectly, the XS size is so perfect, I don’t even need to use the alpha layer.

Same thing with this skirt from JANE. It was an early mesh release, when mesh was still brand new. This skirt was released with 4 sizes, back before designers came up with the standard sizing so these skirts have been discontinued. I managed to get 3 of them (this one, black and black floral) before they were discontinued but I wish I had got them all. The petite size fits me perfectly and I want more of them.

Strawberry’s Monday Meme – Weird Questions

Kyli.Home

Hi everybody 🙂

It is once again Monday, which means it’s time for another Strawberry Singh Monday Meme Challenge. This week is all about “Werid Questions“.  So here is my contribution.

(Note: The picture is in reference to question #2.)

  1. Which was the last sim you visited? (Other than your home)?
    Cyanide Chamber (Twilight Desires sim) last night before I went to bed
  2. Does your avatar look like the real you?
    As close to my RL self as I can get, with a few minor details/enhancements (no, not going to post a RL picture to compare to).
    My avatar and I have the exact same height of 5″4″ (barefoot), same build, eye and hair color, and rougly the same skin tone (I am kinda tan). I am currently wearing in RL the exact same outfit my avatar is wearing in the above picture and my hairstyle is basically the same (ponytail with bangs). I don’t have the facial piercings my av does and my RL tattoos are different (I do have both arms covered).
  3. Do you wear underwear/panties underneath your clothing when out and about on the grid?
    Rarely ever. Unless I’m wearing a really short tanktop dress that comes down to just above my [CENSORED], then I may put some on, otherwise I don’t wear any. Not sure if I even own any underwear in SL, other than my bikinis.
  4. If you won a million linden dollars, what would be the first thing you buy inworld?
    I would purchase my own sim, decorate it to be a tropical island, with waterfalls and trails and one of those party houses from Tiki Tattoo. All my friends would be welcome to hang out whenever they want. I have a few DJ friends in SL so music would be covered. (You can see my current home in the picture above, but it’s only on a 1024sqm plot).
  5. Have you ever bought something in SL and then realized afterwards that you had already owned it from before?
    Yes, actually just a couple days ago at the Summer Fashion Festival, there was a gift at the SAKIDE tent for $1L. I bought it and when I got home to try it on, I found that I already had it. I totally forgot I bought it the day before. I have a couple of group gifts from N-Core and GOS too where I got the gift twice because I forgot I already got it.
  6. Have you ever done anything in Second Life that would be considered illegal in real life?
    I lost a bet with my ex one time and I had to spend my entire time in SL totally naked (I was allowed to wear shoes, my ex and I both hate default SL feet). If I went to a club, I had to go naked (and got kicked out of a couple), shopping naked, everywhere.
  7. If you could go out on a date with any other avatar, who would it be?
    I’ve already been on dates with avatars, my RL relationship is how I started SL in the first place. I no longer do relationships in SL, other than friendships.
  8. Who, in your opinion, was the greatest avatar to ever slive?
    Whichever Linden created the idea of mesh clothing. Flexible prims that bend with your body – pure genius!
  9. What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done inworld?
    Had a rather dirty conversation with my ex, thinking we were in IM and suddenly realizing the whole time we were chatting in local, and we were at a club and people were watching.
  10. If your avatar had a mind of its own, what do you think it would say to you?
    “There are almost unlimited hair and shoes in SL, get shopping NOW!”

Hello everbody. I managed to fight the crowds last night (and this morning too) at the current edition of Collabor88. All I can say is OMG! Everything this round is based on the 1990’s. I was born in 1982 and I git the 90’s around 10 years old so all of my youth years were in the 90’s.

There was a lot of items I wanted at C88 but unfortunatly, many of the items were not really made for my shape without some serious modding. I will edit my shape for items as long as it doesn’t take away from my overall shape, just minor edits here and there. I’ve got about 15 variations of my shape, edited to fit certain items (mostly hip width, body fat and breast size).

This top is probably my favorite item this time around, I bought about 5 colors and I will probably go back for more. 🙂

Sole Sucker

Hello everybody,

I decided to do something a little different this blog post.  I decided to do a post of all my favorite footwear in SL.

In my real life, I only have 6 pairs of shoes. I know what you’re thinking, a girl with only 6 pairs of shoes? I’m not an ordinary girl. 😛  I’m not a flashy dresser, I wear basically the same outfits every day, usually my camo capris, jeans, a couple dresses and thats it. As far as my shoes go, I have a pair of black lowtop Chucks, black 20 eye Doc Martens boots, black flip-flops, 2 pairs of black high heels (one open toe, one closed toe platform) and a pair of black Adidas Sambas (evidently I have a bunch of black shoes, in RL and SL).

So here in SL, I have quite a few pairs of footwear, ranging from from bare feet to heels to boots. I’ll be showcasing my favorite heels, boots and regular shoes.

Wow! Two new posts in two days. I’m on a roll! 🙂

I’ve been wearing a lot of camo lately, in SL and in RL too. I don’t know why, but I love camo clothing. I have a pair of camo capris very similar to the ones in this picture (mine have ties on the cuffs) and I wear them almost every day. It is summer here and tends to be quite hot down here in “Hotlanta”.

I found these camo capris at Miel and I love them, I find myself wearing them fairly often. They look great with my N-Core flipflops or these hot heels from Redgrave (and boots too).
