After 3 1/2 years, I have been finally pulled back in. Into what? Second Life. The circumstances of my leaving wasn’t ideal, nor was it wanted. After time, it got easier and easier to not come in. I am a gunhoe type of person, so when I am inworld, I am giving it my all.
Some of you newer avatars might not even know me, and that is okay. I don’t mind teaching you along the way. You will be seeing my face more often, on here, and other places.
We will learn things together, hopefully, as SL is forever changing. Or maybe you will be my teacher, as there are things, that even after a few weeks of being back, I just don’t understand. You will probably see some of those struggles, as I fumble along on here.
I’m Helena Stringer, new to the Second Life Syndicate Team, but not new to SL. I am primarily a Hair Designer, Avid Blogger, as well as a backend Helper to many past events. I love hunting, the harder the better. My fav colour in SL is green, I love mohawks, Horns, and eyeballs. That is all a bit general, but it is a start.
There are many things planned with the site moving forward, as I work with the team here. I am excited on what will be brought to the table for you all.
Mainframe is an event that was crated by the Second Life Syndicate team, so naturally it was something that I was going to cover on the website here.
I often go more Macabre/Fantasy in second life, if given the choice, but it is always fun to play with new things and styles. I had entirely too much fun pulling this outfit together, playing with the monochromatic theme, and bringing in some red to make it all pop.
I’ve really enjoyed creating an outfit from the product lineup at Mainframe. Everything is so eyecatching, I even enjoyed the little touches the designers put in their booths to make it all the more up to theme.
I’ve also been enjoying a new-to-me pose store, called Serendipity. I was on the hunt for some Bento poses, something else that was barely inworld when I left. This store has some different ones, I liked the style.
Cubic Cherry made these leg addons, which are suppose to be robotic parts that replace your normal mesh legs. Now, I wear a Slink Physique Bento/BOM Enabled Body, and these are offered in Maitreya and Slink Hourglass. This means I had to do a bit of fandangling. See, because of the BOM, I can’t alpha out bits of my body, so had to rely on alpha layers, which the legs don’t come with. The best fit was the Maitreya, then I went through a bunch of my thigh high boot alphas, until I found one that worked. Just though I would share my workaround, if there is anyone else who is in my situation.
I also couldn’t figure out if you were meant to wear shoes or not, as Maitreya footwear does not fit the Maitreya Leg Addons. Been having fun tiptoeing everywhere, tho.
