There are so many reasons to love Second Life, one of the easiest reasons for girls anyway, is the ability to be the Princess in your own Fairy Tale. Now in this look, it would be more of an Urban Princess, but none the less, spending time in this little environment that is a shopping trip of epic proportions that happened recently at D-Lab with Whimsy Winx.
It started with there being appliances set out for FLF and ended in so much cute my teeth hurt. Whimsy has always been a fan of little homemaker items, ironing boards, laundry baskets, vacuums etc so a washer dryer was a given. I tp’d her over and was standing still waiting for her to grab them and things started happening around me. I thought I was imagining things at first, even in Second Life you can tend to let your imagination get the better of you, but rather than kind of fade off into the distance, I started to actually focus on where I was standing and what I was standing amongst.
I literally screeched into Whimsy’s ear and started squealing and rambling about flying little people. Again I had to shake my head and focus, because I realised again, this is Second Life and it was possible that what I was seeing was actually a person in an avatar that I was not familiar with, but no…it was these adorable little people, not just walking past me and around me, but one started flying while holding a balloon and then while I tried to not hyperventilate I found the source.
Now I knew something looked familiar, I did in fact already have some of the orchard trees and birds from events past, and so I searched my inventory and found that I had, in fact, some items from the various gachas before me, but an event and a gacha key does not even begin to explain what is actually going on here.
They move, they roam, they buy drinks and sit, and they climb ladders and size you up if you happen to be near, they socialise with each other and sometimes not only do they fly around you on balloons but sometimes they ride birds. Not only are they the most adorable things, but you can change their outfits with a HUD and the packaging they actually come in, which many would probably delete, also become interactive things they climb. They water the garden, they go for a swim, this is the most mesmerising little happening that will just make your day. We played more of the options at D-Lab and then ran home and unpacked and rezzed everything, and now it is the most calming space to just immerse yourself in, so if you search D-Lab in your inventory do not keep these delightful items trapped in your inventory, set them free.
I was still wearing these delightful shoes by Livalle and playing with the colour options, when I put on the yellow there was no turning back, I needed something to wear and found these unpacked jeans in my objects folder and beamed when they, of course, had yellow military stripes on them – there is that Bloggers fate in action – the top was easy, because I have been waiting for the right time to get my layered tshirt on. The HUD has the option of solid or striped sleeves as well as edge colouring or even off for the sleeves.
The hair is a fantastic style by Exile at this round of C88 and I could not stop my yellow love. This whole beautiful play area is just enhanced by this gorgeous countryside cottage by Unkindness that is also at C88 and will make the most divine studio space for someone, or an office, because the new year needs some organisation.
