Sim hoping

Sometimes we do plan vigorously! We think about appearances and we plan where to go.

Other days Whims hasn’t even got out of her dressing-gown! But that doesn’t matter, in SL we all look stunning anyway! These few shots came up after a bloke had tried to take Whims’ picture but gave up. And I was amazed how easy it was to fix a problem I’d had with my viewer for AGES! I simply took my maitreya HUD off and *voila* I saw the whole world in clear focus! So I made the pictures for the blog, and Whims put her wonderful picture of me in a boat here.

The sim is called Duet and is a wonderful sim full of nice little spots made for photography. Here is a taxi. To all of you that recognises this concept of a place dedicated to photography we can confirm that yes, it is the former owner of Fotoscope, Korgi Lerwick, that is the co-owner of this place together with his SL partner Jules Phelan. Well worth a visit we thought!!

The Last Unicorn

After Fiona and I explored Invictus,  we looked around at the other LEA sims in the surrounding area.  One that was interesting was (we forget its name,  so lets agree to call it the last unicorn”)  which is a Sim that offers a HUD tied in with an experience,  so that it tells you the story in chat as you walk around. It also lets you ‘collect’ stuff in the HUD.

Admission up front (seems to be the season for admissions)  – we really sucked at managing the HUDs,  but we had fun there anyway.

The sim has lots of areas to explore, and features beasts such as Minotaur, Unicorn and (my favourite) Puss in boots.  Here are a couple of pics we took on our way.

The Unicorn appears and disappears as you walk around, which is a cute thing.

Puss is in an interior room – there are some beautiful details in this sim.

Now, here is a thing,  Fiona suggested we should let you know who made this amazing sim,  so (as we had forgotten to look before)  we ran back to see.

And it turned out to be someone I have known previously in second life – many moons ago – and its so cool to see what old friends do when you take your eye off them!

The artists Name is the awesomely creative Subversive Vavoom  (SubV!).

 

Hugs,

Whims & Fiona

 

 

 

A visit to *Roots* by Cica Ghost

Firstly!

Happy New Year 2016!!

While Fiona was looking for headache pills and drinking fresh melted snow to try and recover from her New Years Bash,  your faithful explorer Whims  was traipsing fashionably around the grid,  undaunted by the number 16,  fearlessly and quite probably lost…  until ….

Huge thanks to Owl for throwing us the link to Cica Ghost’s newest creation, which opened on December 27th and is called *Roots*.

Cica has created  a Naive art sim with surreal dreamlike creations with a combination of playfulness and darkness,  enhanced by the moody wind light on the sim. Its a fantastic sim for giggly exploring, with some fun interactive elements.

We have made a few pictures to show you,  however this is really a place to be immersed in and to spend some time..  we highly recommend that you do!

There is still time…

…to visit the Fantasy Faire 2015.

13 well made and worth-a-visit-sims packed with colour, shops and beauty! Whims and I have taken little outings and there is much to see, but we liked the underwater worlds in particular.

Hanging out with Whims

Hanging out with Fi

We started out with the intention of buying a statue to put our intan dance ball in. But as always when you set out exploring with Whims, you end up doing something completely different!

 

 

 

Whims from above

We found to our happy surprise that the statue exhibition Whims found was the Ocho tango sim that has had a big makeover. The open space wilderness has partly been replaced by a shallow water showing the art of the fantastically talented Mistero Hifeng, who makes incredible and tasteful statues.

Whims managed to capture some of them here:

Statues _011

Statues _007Statues _004

We strongly recommend you to do like Whims: Use the region wind light which is carefully chosen to make the most of the statues, and it also changes as you move around the sim to give you different atmospheres.

The sim is dedicated to tango and the old dance hall, or “milonga” is still there in the middle of beautiful grassy environments, and the radio still plays wonderful tango hits from different times. The place is very romantic and full of nice cuddles. A couple of friends celebrated their wedding here, a quiet ceremony only for themselves. So take your beloved or a new hot date for a exploring tour in this beautiful place, you will not be disappointed and you will have plenty of “talk pieces” if you need some help with your convo:)

Mistero Hifengs sculptures can also be seen at the LEA29 sim.

Grand opening!

Oh what a lovely party we had! Owl and Daallee at The living room had organized it so nicely! Lazarus Doghouse was playing and lots of people were mingling around admiring Whims beautiful pictures and my love was glowing and beaming to everyone. I am so happy for her to get this opportunity to show off all the marvelous pictures she does and that I know contains so much loving efforts and creative joy. Me myself I snooped around and took pictures of the fancy guests, here is a selection of my snaps of the event:

Oh yes, we had a celebrity visit too! Simon Linden honoured us with a visit and I managed to capture him and my darling at the same picture, not very good one perhaps, but I guess I was a bit star struck…

It was quite the crowd showing up and I must confess my heart was bursting with pride for Whims!

Now what you really should do is that you go visit the lovely gallery and you set your light according to Whims thorough instructions about wind light settings found in an instructive vendor) (I was being naughty here, not following them at all) and you have a good look at her fantastic art! They are all for sale if you want to decorate your homes and/or save them.

Lots of LUUUURVE/Fiona

Whimsically naked

Exciting day!

Today is the grand opening of Whims’ show at The living room, a wonderful venue that opened not long ago and run by our friends Owl and Daallee at the Lagrange sim.

Psst, don’t tell her, but she’s already been written about here: Whimsically naked at the Living room

Please come have a look at the pictures here.

If you want to join us for the opening party you need to hurry up, it starts at noon SL time and we will listen to the lovely music of Lazarus Doghouse while we mingle and admire Whims’ beautiful art.

Lots or luuuurve/Fiona
