A Wandering Elf’s Second Life

My (mis)adventures in Second Life

Tonight We Dine in Hell February 25, 2007

Although they annoy me when I’m trying to build, more often than not I find griefers hilarious.  I remember being in stitches when a fat, naked silent woman continally assulted my welcome area when I was a newborn noob.  On more than one occasion, she appeared and ran around, handed out sex toys to bemused bystanders and humped people while playing sex noises.  I’m sorry…but every time it happened I laughed so much I almost fell off my chair.  Damn, I wish I’d thought to take a picture.  What I saw today though, just made me shake my head and say “WHAT??”  I was happily flying over some furry territory when I was stopped in my tracks by some (now famous after the whole Anshee Chung debacle) floating penises.  People on the ground below were shouting obsenities at each other…along the lines of “yo furry mama is sooo fat…etc. etc.”; and it was basically obvious that I had stumbled into a furry war zone.  But what left me really scratching my head was this: Someone shouted “Tonight we dine in hell”, just before I was unjustly imprisoned in a giant box.  The inside of my cell was tastefully decorated with photos of real penises.  There were penises with pus coming out of them and penises being snapped and cut in half.  Why would some one have invested time and money (for uploads) to make this??  Bizarre and unsettling…I preferred the naked humper.


Anybody order a penis?

 

My Enormous Couch February 19, 2007

So I’ve created a big couch for my new bar (because everyone wants somewhere comfortable to sit while they’re drinking!).  I scoured SL Exchange first, to see if I could buy one.  Nothing there really took my fancy…but I did get a good idea after seeing a large square sofa.  I wanted my couch to be similarly big and squishy looking….and I would build it myself.  I was so pleased with the results that I made it in three different colours, with a view to selling them myself.  I’ve been trying to make it in the fickle world of SL retail for a while now.  Interestingly, I’ve never sold anything on the Exchange.  I have two prefab bars I’ve built on there, one is in a celtic style and one is a vampire/gothic type affair, and now of course I have the three jumbo couches up for sale.  Today I thought I’d try out SL Boutique.  I loved that you can set up your own page for your store…you can also change the colour scheme and upload a banner…very cool!  But what I loved even more was that less than an hour after uploading my items, I had sold one celtic tavern and one couch.  Woo hoo!  My first sales ever!  Makes me wonder if I should continue paying L$75 a week to rent retail space at the Beach Comber Mall in Hundertwasser…from which I’ve never sold anything either.  SL Boutique rocks!  Oh, and if you’re bored (or curious), here’s my store page: http://www.SLBoutique.com/Cazzy_Ewry/

This is one of my newest friends, Elena, who kindly agreed to model my couch for me (hehe!)  You definitely meet some very nice people in sand boxes.  Granted, sometimes you also meet griefers who are only interested in covering you with annoying green mist, making it impossible to continue building there because you can’t actually SEE what you’re doing…but thankfully that doesn’t happen every time.

I had fun positioning my freebie pose balls on the couch (I’m being sarcastic by the way).  I’d never used pose balls in my builds before and getting them into places where the sitting positions looked natural…hmm, that was hard!  I finally had to sit on each pose ball and then move it into position with me on it…which must have looked very strange to everyone else in the sand box.  LOL!

 

The Tale of the Tree February 16, 2007

I may have wandered from the strict path my ancestors long ago set out for me, but I still feel most at home among the trees.  So began my quest to build a tree house fit for an elf.  A place with a secret space where I could dream…and a public area in which to place my tavern, The Armless Man.  Strangely, I found the hardest thing was deciding how to make the leaves and branches.  I finally ended up with a pretty fat looking trunk, housing two alcoves with balconies.  I haven’t decided what to do with the lower alcove yet (although I’m contemplating a shop, prim limits allowing!).  The top alcove contains my tavern…complete with bar and mini dance floor!

Sunset at The Armless Man

This is the reason why I moved to Arah…wonderful views and stunning sunsets (what more could an elf want?).

Here’s a picture of my tree…I’m so loving it!…

…And the inside of my tavern.  Cosy, don’t you think?
