My SL Age – Wonderful Twos

My SL Age -Wonderful Two’s

My different looks thru the past two years

I just turned two on SL on May 30, 2013 and decided to enter this new monthly contest, “Name Your SL Age Blogger Challenge” on flickr. I named my two years on SL, “Wonderful Two’s”, because it’s been a roller coaster ride.  I had seen Second Life on tv once and that had gotten my curiosity because I had played the game SIMS, and I thought it would be similar.  My old computer graphics couldn’t handle SL so I didn’t get to download it until May 30, 2011 when I got a new laptop.  That first day on SL I ended up staying on SL all night and I did not sleep. I had so much fun, I felt like a kid in Disneyland. I met so many interesting people at the Safe Hubs, flying around, and exploring all the sims. I was curious about everything. I explored the sims with my wings on and with my unicorn. I’m such a dork but I didn’t care, I was having fun.  I didn’t know the meaning of “noob” then but I’m sure I was. LOL

Someone had given me a LM of a freebie place where I went to try on skins, shapes, and clothes. I had no idea on how to try them on until a stranger came by to help me and I learned quick after that. All I knew was marketplace until my friend Shrug Dangle showed me all of these wonderful shops on SL.  I went thru so many shapes, skins, hair, and clothing styles.  That first month on SL, I had reached my limit on spending money because SL said I had to wait till I’m over one month old to have my spending limit raised.

My second month on SL, I joined Hells Angels MC (motor club) on SL. I learned how to ride and shoot guns.  I have a big collection of bikes, cars, and weapons. I had a blast shooting zombies and going to concerts on SL. At this time my inventory clothes consisted mostly leather or biker wear. The MC had a strict dress code and I couldn’t wear a dress or heels.  I must have ruined a lot of things in my inventory then because I was experimenting with resizing and editing.

I did the MC for three months then I met a friendly Neko at a club, who became my SL brother. Venom took me away to an RP (roleplay) sim called “Menora”. It is the home of fans of the anime, “Naruto”, where we RP’d and did combat with C:SX hud and jutsus.  I’ve met some of my closest friends here and realized the meaning of family on SL.

My friend Summer Deadlight invited me to my first fashion show on SL, Modavia Fashion Week in Sept. 2011. I knew right then and there that this is what I wanted to do and enrolled in my first modeling school at Costa Rica Sims in Oct. of 2011 and the rest was history. That’s my “Wonderful Two’s” in a nutshell.
