Bubbles! Take me to the skies! November 14, 2010
BOO! *jumps out from the shrubs and waves hands manically*
Welcome to the once-a-month post of “Who Let The Dorks Out”! I can’t deny that the thought to just officially stop blogging has crossed my mind in the last weeks. However, I am not ready to let it go yet. Instead I have been thinking about a format change. What is clear is that I don’t have as much time available anymore to do lengthy posts with lots of different items and URLs. This is especially true for “fashion posts”, something wich I kind of slipped into in the recent past. So I decided to go back to my original vision and show silly, weird and wonderful avatars and toys. I possibly will not credit every single thing of my outfit anymore, but if you are interested in something, please just leave a comment and I will let you know where I got it from.
I am also going to try and post quick sreenshots of things that I come across and like, instead of trying to build a whole outfit around them. For example, I loved these flowery shoes at Ingenue [SLURL].
Enough introduction, I would like to introduce the real star of this posting to you: The “Alien Bub” avatar by Madcow Cosmos [SLURL].
If you have been following this blog for a longer time you will know that I love aliens and bubbles – so I got VERY excited when I saw this avatar which promised to combine both in one! And I was not disappointed. Not only is it cute and colourful in an asymmetrical outer-space way, it also comes with a HUD called “To the Skies” . When you click on it once, the alien blows a big bubble. <33333
But the really amazing thing happens when you click the HUD a second time. The bubble becomes huuuge and the alien starts to fly up high into the sky. Click another time and the bubble bursts. I might have spent some time making my alien fly up to the sky and plummet back to earth…
You can buy this and lots of other wonderful avatars at Madcow’s Primordial Soup and Sandwich shop [SLURL]. Because it can be a bit difficult to find, I took a picture of the vendors to make it easier for you. 🙂
Have a great Sunday in your SL and RL, and even better if, it involves bubbles of some kind.
Super Bargain Saturday 25, yo! June 26, 2010
Have you joined the Super-Bargain Saturday event group yet? Well you can do so at the subscriber in any store participating in the event and save big every Saturday. This means BIG DEALS for you every single week from awesome designers. Every Saturday, from 12am-12pm SLT, you get whatever the designer puts out for only 60L. And these are very generous designers, so you won’t want to miss what they have for you. You don’t have to join to reap the rewards, but you will get a list every week with the stores and slurls ahead of time.
As of two weeks ago, Super-Bargain Saturday hit Olive Juice, and it’s back again! Since it’s officially summer time in the States, that means beach parties and fun with friends in any world. So I thought this friends pose would be perfect for capturing those fun moments on film. AND, since it’s a SBS release, that means it is only 60L all day today! After midnight tonight, it will go to full price, so grab it on the cheap while you can.
And don’t forget to check out the other great deals at the other Super-Bargain Saturday stores, like my neighbor in Morning Glory, Awesome Blossom. She has the cutest front porch set that includes a rocking chair with 4 custom animations (made by yours truly), side table with tablecloth and accessories. The chair and table are all texture change too, so the options are endless. All that for only 60L today too!
Happy Shopping 🙂
“Every Saturday a group of designers will place an item marked down to 60L in front of their mainstore. The item will be available from 12am SLT on Saturday until 11:59pm SLT on Saturday. All the designers are going to put up a totally new product or something from their store list. Each week we are going to give you the opportunity to discover new and great designers with gorgeous products.”
The Intergalactic Spy June 1, 2010
Only a handful of trusted people knew her civil name. To everyone else she was Agent Pink, Intergalactic Spy, one of the Defenders of the Triangulum Galaxy and someone you wouldn’t want to cross.
The day she turned legend was when a convoy of spaceships from the far away Star Nebula entered Her Majesty’s territory and started an agressive attack on the capital city and the President’s residence. Without hesitation she threw herself into the line of fire and fought the enemy, one by one, saving the ancient civilisation of Triangulum all on her own.
Rumour has it that when the President awarded her the Intergalactic Medal of Distinction, a quick smile curved her lips. But mysteriously, none of the hundreds of cameras documenting the ceremony had been able to catch it.
It takes too long to build a good reputation to risk losing it for a blink of an eye in history.

Sheep in Wolf’s Clothing May 21, 2010
If you suddenly find yourself among predators, it is recommended to adapt to their appearance and make a quick exit.

If you haven’t joined SLDD yet, you most definitely should. It’s this fantastic shoppers club that has different price options, and you get to snag exclusive deals and sometimes exclusive items EVERY SINGLE DAY! Today happens to to Olive Juice‘s turn for the 50% off item, YAY! This “Barrel of Poses” is just what it sounds like. It comes packed with 8 static poses, fully adjustable to fit your av, easy touch menu built-in and 7 prims with sculpted flowers or only 2 without. Both options are included to blend in with your summer or spring decor. I hope you have as much fun with it as I did making it.
Just make sure your SLDD card is attatched, and choose ‘pay’ from the menu. If you aren’t a member, sign up right in the Olive Juice store at the Shopper Register Sign in the front-left hand side when you walk in. That’s it! Fun times at half the price, weeeee!
V is for Venus Flytrap May 5, 2010
Hi there! Sorry for my long silence, but I have been experiencing quite a bit of SL fatigue recently and was totally unmotivated to take pictures, blog or even just log into SL. However, I felt a slight spark of inspiration tonight to take up the Dork’s Alphabet again. Don’t worry, you didn’t miss a large part of it, I decided to have a break from the strict alphabetic order and catch the ideas as they fly by. Just realised the unintended pun when looking at today’s card – teehee.
I would like to thank Further Monday for showing me the hilarious Ollipog store at the Fantasy Fair. It was very hard for me to decide which one to choose because I loved them all! In the end I went for their RFL item and this “Fly J’Accuzi”. So if you were ever looking to change into a “Blubird of Crappiness” with a cherry on your head, a tiny ghost lemur or a mandrake magic root (!!), this should be your first stop.
Further doesn’t only constantly find cool avatars, she also just founded the in-world group “Shapeshifters Union” and the accompanying Flickr group here. Yay, I have been yearning for such a group for ages! If you consider yourself a shapeshifter, please do join this group. There will also be regular events, for example get-togethers at a surprise sim with the challenge to dress according to the sim theme. Hope to see you there. 🙂
