Little Branch is one of my favorite brands for trees and other flora. Their latest release is the “Spring Blossoms Tree”, which can be found at the June round of Limit8. Cari McKeenan (owner of the Little Branch) kindly sent me a review copy of this beautiful blossom tree and I had a lot of fun playing around with it. Continue reading

The Chapter Four June 2018

I have been having a lot of fun experimenting with photography and editing lately. When I was initially shooting for this post, I had no idea what the final product would look like. I am admittedly quite proud of how it turned out. I aim for vibrant, colorful and lively photography and this photo resembles that quite well.

Next to my recent interest in photography, I have also decided to pick up vlogging again. Continue reading

A great thing about photography is that there is always space for collaboration. I recently got together with my dear friend Exis to shoot a photo of this wonderfully cozy outfit by MSS, which you can currently find at On9.

This month’s theme for On9 is Grand Holiday Party. It is a round filled with glitz and glam and it’s simply fabulous. Check out the shopping guide on the On9 blog for a full overview of the December exclusives.

I have done a video with my favorite finds at the current round of On9: https://youtu.be/u4V3AcRTSck

Wasabi Duo

Wasabi Pills is one of my all-time favorite hair stores. I discovered them back in 2013, prior to creating my current avatar. Fast forward to 2016, I am happy to share that I am now part of their official blogger team. I am deeply honored and incredibly grateful for this wonderful opportunity.

MissAllSunday Lemon regularly releases new hairs at various events. In my picture I am wearing the Aspen hair which was previously available at The Forest and the Deirde hair, which you can currently find at Collabor88. I used the Lunar HUD for both of the hairstyles. This colour pack contains sweet ombre colours, in regular as well as rooted versions.

I also made a short video, showcasing a few of the newest Wasabi Pills releases: https://youtu.be/XdwH5dWySCs

I have added the event dates at the bottom of the blog post. No worries though, the hairs will return to the Wasabi Pills mainstore after the event closes.

Catwa Catya Bento Head

Click to enlarge

Project Bento is an extension to the standard Second Life avatar which makes it possible to customize your mesh heads, similar to shaping your standard Second Life facial features in the past. You can read more about Bento in this short forum post by Linden Lab.

Before purchasing your first Bento head, please consider the following:

  • The head will only be visible on a Bento viewer. You can download the Bento beta viewer via the Alternative Viewer wiki page.
  • Project Bento is currently still in its beta testing phase, meaning that there will be bugs and glitches. Creators will do their absolute best to fix any bugs on their side. However, please remember that they will be unable to fix Second Life bugs.

Catwa – Catya Bento Head

Catwa recently released her first Bento head named Catya. Listed below are a few details regarding the head that I have not discussed in my video:

  • Expressions: Catya comes with 9 standard expressions. The expressions are currently only compatible with the default shape:

catya-expressions

  • HUDs: The pack includes an Animations and Master HUD. The last one of which is a replacement of the previous Main HUD.

catya-huds

  • Price: Catya costs 5000 L$ and comes with the following:
    – Alpha layers
    – Various gestures
    – Mesh head (with teeth)
    – Mesh head (without teeth)
    – Animations and Master HUD
    – Info & Updates Log
    – Rigged eyes
    Remember to try a DEMO before purchasing the head.
  • Troubleshooting: Join the in-world group called CATWA HEAD Friends for live chat support. Paste the following link into your local chat and click to join: secondlife:///app/group/29c5ca14-7e13-fdf0-c531-2507844a1eef/about

For more information, take a look at Catwa’s blog and YouTube channel. Both contain helpful information, tips and tricks!

Catya lookbook video

For my video on Catya, I displayed three different looks to show various ways of styling and shaping the head. You can find the custom shapes that I have used for these looks on my Marketplace.

Where have I been?

My last vlog was uploaded on September 25th, though it feels like it has been an eternity. There have been events and issues that occupied me, which I will elaborate in this terribly late, but much needed, update video.

I have no idea where my sudden longing to record a video came from, though I’m admittedly quite happy it returned. Hopefully I will be able to publish more video’s after finishing my exams amongst other real life projects. Thank you for your patience, I appreciate it tremendously!
