Luxe Box: Year In Review – Vlog

On Monday, May 15th, 2017; it was the one year anniversary of Luxe Box in Second Life. Many Vloggers & Bloggers have done their own unboxing videos and showing off what was inside of this month’s box. I wanted to do something a little bit different, so I am doing a year in review. I will showing off my 2 -3 favorite Luxe Box items from all of the past Boxes released in the past year.

If you didn’t join the Luxe Box in time for the month and you would like to get the items, there are two different ways that you can get it. First you can join the Luxe Box group on the 15’th of the month after it’s been delivered for double the price until 12am of the 16’th of that month or Secondly you can join when enrollment begins on the 1’st of the month and go to the Luxe Box Boutique and buy any of the previous Luxe boxes. All of this information is listed on the Luxe Box FAQ. All previously released Luxe Boxes are available at the Luxe Box Boutique for the cost of 2000L. To receive the latest Luxe Boxes, it costs 1500L to join the group every month before the 15’th when enrollment ends and the box is delivered. To see what’s in the boxes of previous months, check out the Luxe Box Catalog.

You can find out even more information about Luxe Box; such as designers for the month & contests to win a free Luxe Box on their website.

Predominance

Oakley Foxtrot challenged those of us who attended her BVN Talk to use some smoke in our pictures, so here’s my take upon it, along with lighting and finding my style & going with things that inspire me and not second guessing myself regarding it.

Second Life Vlogger Challenge!

Strawberry Singh issued a Vlogger Challenge, on her Blog & Youtube Channel back on April 24, 2017.

Challenge instructions: Share a video of your avatar in Second Life introducing yourself, talking a little bit about what you do in SL, how long you’ve been here, what you plan to share on your youtube channel and any other information you’d like to share. Or if you don’t want to talk in the video you can just dance, explore SL or do any kind of video you feel like doing, just make sure it is about Second Life. I encourage everyone to try and share their video on youtube, but you are free to upload it to flickr, vimeo or anywhere else you prefer. Then come back to this post and leave a link to your video in the comments so we can all click over to see and subscribe to your channel. Please remember to add the words “Second Life” in your tags or description on youtube so it comes up when people search for Second Life related content on youtube.

It took me awhile to get around to it, due to my nerves. But I finally got around to biting the bullet and doing it.

There are quite a few Vloggers within Second Life now, each with their own point of view doing things from unboxings videos, to simply talking about their day. So take the challenge and share what your Second Life is all about.

Monday Meme: Second Life Yearbook Smile Challenge!

I’ve mostly been out of the blogging loop and have decided to stay that way for the most part. But as always I am slightly pulled back in by; The Mother of Bloggers, Queen of Photography! Yes this is my personal name for her and I will continue to use it but who else could I be speaking about other than Strawberry Singh!

So she has decided to being Monday Meme’s once again and I couldn’t be happier, as it’s something that I have always enjoyed doing. Also I must note it’s something that can make me blog at least once a week again which isn’t too much for me. Anyways onto this week’s Meme!

Meme instructions: Share an image of your Second Life avatar smiling for a yearbook photo. Don’t forget to share the link to your post in the comments and add your pictures to the new Second Life Yearbook flickr group, you can also share them in the Blog Memes flickr group if you like.

 

Second Life Yearbook Challenge 2015!

I know, I am not smiling but there is a reason for that. I have the AnyPose Expression Hud, which I find quite useful for pictures. There is one thing, I HATE the smiles.. looks like I am going to break into someone’s home and murder them as they sleep…or as if I was giving too many ‘happy’ pills to try to stabilize my mood. So then I went looking at the Loud Mouth which also had me left more than a bit disappointed. So my theme slowly began to take form, I’m angry; this should be so fucking simple! And there I got it, channel my anger into this and make a future mug shot picture because truth be told, I hated smiling for school pictures and was made not once but twice to retake pictures by my mother! So I just used my [Whatever] Teeth 2.0 Pierced that I always wear but with the ‘Hooked’ Mesh Alpha Included! So there you have it, perhaps a bit outside of the box but this is me that we are talking about after all.
