Happy Rezday To Me!

Happy Rezday To Me

Today marks the 11th anniversary of when I first joined Second Life!  I’ve had to switch avatars since then for a couple of different reasons, but I still celebrate May 2, 2004 as my rezday.  To celebrate, I decided to do the “First and Recent” blog challenge that Strawberry Singh posted a couple of months ago.  Now, since my blog is still relatively new, I decided to go all the way back to one of the earliest photos I can find of my avatar in SL.  The photo on the left is from my modeling portfolio, taken in late May 2004.  Back in those days, we didn’t have skins, prim hair, custom animations, WindLight skies or water, sculpties, or mesh to make us look better.  The change over the years has been pretty dramatic!  I tried to replicate the look as much as I could for the “recent” photo, using items that are much more modern.  The actual photo is a whole lot better than can fit in that little square, so make sure to click through to Flickr where I have a full resolution version of the new photo posted.

On The Boardwalk

On The Boardwalk

When I saw the Zip Tanks that AP.PAREL released today, I got really excited.  They’re one of my favorite brands in SL, and I can always use some nice summerwear.  I’ve completed the outfit with a variety of items from events, all of which are credited below, but I think the kPhone 3C from Kunst really gave the outfit a lot of feeling – I can just picture myself seeing someone attractive walking by on the boardwalk, standing like that, and taking a quick photo of them.
