I’ve been pranking a friend of mine lately, leaving animals in her house. She finally got me back today. I found this adorable tropical coconut drink in my inventory first. We occasionally send each other small gifts, so I really didn’t anything was going on. Until I found a cozy chair out back, overlooking the water. I sat down for a minute to enjoy the view when… (see the last photo).
Yes, she hid a SHARK in the water poised to jump out at me! I forced it up in the air to take this photo. It was actually hidden pretty well just under the surface of the water. She was pretty sneaky! Do you have a friend that you play tricks on in SecondLife?

I keep swearing not to do events anymore but, somehow, keep entering the Dazzle Event anyway. The owner/organizer, Palomma, is also the founder of Free Dove and her team builds remarkably creative themed displays for her events. This month’s theme is “Take a Walk on the Wild Side”. Naturally, I went with animal print. It’s likely that every other designer did the same. There is something about wearing animal that makes us feel powerful and bold – and it’s in fashion this season.
This mesh dress fits several of the most popular mesh bodies sold in Second Life. I was not able to get this one in a fit for JOMO, but will keep searching for mesh that work for those bodies, too.
No felines were harmed in the making of this dress and I will assert right now that wearing animal print does not have to be an act of advocating animal cruelty. It can be an act of honoring animals by donning patterns that are inspired by their beauty.
Call me a visionary. I “googled” my second life and found a store in real life called Tin Roof and they sell cute clothes! It looks like they opened in November of 2017 in a small town in Ohio. Here’s a link to their Facebook page.
I made “Leaves” from a new set of luxurious textures of leaf patterns on neutral backgrounds. The fitmesh for this blouse has such a satin-y drape to it that it needed a silky texture to do it justice. Worn with a grey or chocolate brown skirt, this top makes a flirty entrance to the fall season.
I entered several sales events for Halloween this year. The red and black gown below is for the “Salem” event at Garden of Shadows. If you’re reading this on Halloween, you still have a few hours to go get it! It comes with a necklace and the glowing red particle effects that can be added.
This purple gown with black lace trim is for the free (yes I said FREE!) Blacklace hunt. If you are reading this on Halloween, hurry and go pumpkin hunting because that place is loaded with some amazing prizes! This one is split into three parts. You have find the shoulder raven, the mask, and dress in three different pumpkins. Happy hunting 🙂
This cute top is called “Skully”. It’s in the TinRoof mainstore and on marketplace for only 149L. If you celebrate Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muertos, this is perfect for you! The HUD has six colors to choose from. This is fitmesh for Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, and JOMO Fox and Werewolf. (I know, right?)
Did you know that you can take yoga classes in Second Life? Yasmin tells me they have class at 2:00 p.m. SLT on Wednesday. What a great way to get us up out of our chairs at home while still feeling immersed in the virtual environment of SL!
I broke from the norm a bit this time and added some inspiring messages to this fit-mesh top. The HUD has six color/word choices on it including “Pray”, “Breathe” and more. So you can remember when you forget, and you can remind others so they don’t forget. How kind of you!
The mesh is made in standard sizes for classic avatars and fitted mesh for the following mesh avatars: Ebody, Ocacin, Maitreya, Belleza, TMP and Slink.
Have you ever torn up a t-shirt to make a halter or tank top?
Have you ever torn up a t-shirt to make a halter or tank top? I’ve seen several of these on Pinterest and have meant to try my hand at making one. When I stumbled upon this mesh model, I just new that it HAD to be a tie-dyed t-shirt, torn and tied in the back with denim jeans. It would look so cute with cut-off shorts, so that may be my next project.
This is a Womenstuff Hunt prize, so I didn’t spend a lot of time with details. I may do another one with edge seams and more shadows to give it dimension. The hunt runs from April 1st (no joke) to the 30th. That sounds like a lot of time but there are well over a hundred stores, so you can hunt a handful of stores each day and never run out!
“Daisies” was inspired purely by the mesh model used to make this top. The shape of the front panels reminded me of flower petals and it just screamed “TinRoof” to me… so I bought it. The fabric is a breezy linen in six colors, though the black and white are actually my favorites. They go with anything!
In addition to the fabric texture, the buttons and the trim have also been customized.
*** A special color of this top can also be found hidden in the TinRoof main store for the Women’s Stuff Hunt until Aug 31st. ***
