Who let the dorks out?

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].

Bubble Alien

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

Bubbling away

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…

To the Skies!

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.

How I wanted olives and got balloons September 13, 2009

This is probably going to be one of the longest and most random posts ever, but it contains a good mix of SL goodness like trains, a submarine, a particle sphere, balloons and silly weapons, so it is worth sticking around to the end! 😀

It all started last evening when I only wanted to take a quick picture of the “Shy Sheep” avatar (CSR 2009 prize by **DP**yumyum) and to try out Bella’s new poses. I remembered that I had a dress called “Olive Juice” from H&V and then thought it would be funny to find a giant olive to take pictures in. Unfortunately SL disappointed me this time and only returned a handful of places, none of which had anything to do with olives. Even more bizarre, one of the search results was “The Great Second Life Railway”. I love trains in SL and so far I had only travelled on the small ones traversing zoos or amusement parks. Therefore I decided to put olive juices aside for a moment and check out the railway – it doesn’t take a lot to distract me!

The Great Second Life Railway

When I teleported to the station I was a bit disappointed, because the Great Railway turned out to be only one wagon and it didn’t even have an engine! Boo! After I boarded it got immediately better though, because it drove into a cave system with some adventurous turns and curves. The track then continued outside and I admired the landscape and the ocean. Suddenly the train came to a stop, as it reached the sim borders and apparently wasn’t able to cross them.
