Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Snowflakes fall, are you listening?
In the lane, snow is glistening.
A beautiful sight, I’m happy tonight
Walking in a winter wonderland.

Where fox and rabbit say good night

In the meadow I can build a snow fox,
And a little rabbit to the right.
They’ll say “Are you tired?”, I say “No way!
But how about you go home for the night?”

Frolicking in a Winter Wonderland

When it snows, ain’t it thrilling,
Though my nose gets a chilling.
I’ll frolic and play the dorkettes’ way
Walking in a winter wonderland.

Winter Wonderland

Walking in a winter wonderland.
Walking in a winter wonderland!

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].

Cute shoes at Ingenue

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.

 

The Dorks’ Guide to Burn2 – Part I October 18, 2010

Even though RL is still winning over SL at the moment, I wouldn’t want to miss my favourite virtual event, Burning Life (or Burn2, as it is called now). It seems a lot smaller this year, which in the first moment made me feel a bit sad – but then I realised that this means I will definitely get to see everything in the short time frame, which was a relief in a way. I haven’t forgot the marathons in the last years, when I was flying around with speed of light and trying not to miss anything!

I started off with a small tour today but already found one of my favourite builds EVER: “Concrete Soldiers” by Liz Gealach [SLURL]. Her build is an interpretation of a poem which you receive on a notecard, and features a very grey and bleak street silhouette with a lonely sheep.

Concrete Soldiers

You must stay at this build for several minutes, because a sun will rise and transform the whole scenery into a small paradise of colours. First I didn’t realise what was going on and it confused me a lot that one second the butterflies were there and the next one they were gone. But after I figured out what was going on, I stood for a while and watched the scenery change. What a fantastic idea!

Concrete Soldiers

I also really liked “POP ATOMIC” by Mikaty Slade and Emily Lang. [SLURL]. From the notecard: “The ATOMIC bomb changed the Japanese people forever. 8-bit console games are a loving part of Japan’s POP culture nowadays. I felt that both the atomic bomb and the 8-bit consoles are powerful symbols of 20th century’s civilization, at least as experienced by the Japanese people. And, so, POP ATOMIC was born.”

POP ATOMIC

Lastly, I thought that “The Painted Glasstower” by Betty Tureaud[SLURL] was both a beautiful and an impressive installation. The glass panels change over time and I think there is also an elevator box driving through the middle of the tower to the top (I entered the hole from the top and then landed on top of said box and drove a bit back up with it).

The Painted Glasstower

Hopefully I will be able to continue my Burn2 exploration in the next days and share more fabulous builds with you!

 

The Intergalactic Spy June 1, 2010

The Intergalactic Spy

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.

Under Attack

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.

If you suddenly find yourself among predators, it is recommended to adapt to their appearance and make a quick exit.

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. 🙂
