Meme - Changes

Challenged by Sophia Harlow to get “retro”. I loved doing this challenge. After joining SL, I began shopping nearly immediately, picking up my first shape, skin, and clothing within the first week. I also began blogging after just a few months, having refined my look and shopping technique. SL changes quickly, so I was really surprised to see how many of my old favorites are still available!

Meme - Changes

My basic look hasn’t changed drastically since February of 2007. I’m still a fairly short, freckled redhead. My shape has gone through a number of changes, becoming softer and more realistic, with healthy curves. I was so skinny in the beginning, and, with those big eyes, I looked like an anime character!

As an added bonus: Here’s one of the first snapshots I ever took, from March 5th, 2007, not even two weeks after joining SL!

I think I already knew I was going to be an SL photographer.

In celebration of my second rezday, I treated myself to a fatpack of Curio’s (SLURL) new skins. The Vibrant line has six faces so far, each with unique makeups. I loved the idea of dimples on one face, but decided on a similar skin without dimples – the Breeze face. Picking a skintone was hard, because the Vibrant line is much redder in tone than the previously fairly yellow Curio skins. I am quite happy with the Petal skintone, though, and can choose between a light or a dark version if I feel like mixing it up. My only complaint might be the heavy shading in places, but even that is pretty – it just takes some getting used to!

There are some great events on the Grid right now. The Clothing Fair (SLURL) is always worth a visit and I love donating to a good cause. It’s not nearly as laggy as it was on the first day, either, so check it out! I am really impressed by the Armoire (SLURL) event, the jewelry on display is gorgeous and snagging limited edition items from some of my favorite designers is always a plus. The quest isn’t very difficult and is actually entertaining. I still have a few gems to collect, though, so you might see me wandering the labyrinth later!

Yes, I am adorable. I look good enough to eat, but don’t gobble me up – resist the urge! Fei Bourdeille helped me tweak my shape and WL settings, I love it all! :D
