Fantasy Role-Play: A bit under the water….there be Mer-folk!



Good afternoon everyone, 

Today I received several goodies that made me take a little swim in my underwater world. I do not think I have ever actually did a mermaid post. I have often enjoyed other Blogger’s mermaid posts.So when I received two wonderful water themed outfits from BlueMoon Enterprises I couldn’t resist trying my hand at it. I made photos for when my Mermaid is under the water and on land. I stole from the myth that when Mer-people come to land their tails turn to legs. I think they turned out quite well.

X is the Loneliest Number



Sometimes you just have to embrace the quirks of SL. Even when it might affect your bowing game. I’m not going to blame the lack of mesh ball return machines or the blinding neon for my poor game, but I am not going to blame myself either.

Do you know what makes regular prims and neon decor look better? Black and white photography. Consider that another SLife Hack from me to you.

I ended up here at the Land of Giants bowling alley after glancing at the SL events calendar and finding a bowling tournament. I was desperate to find something to do besides shop and explore. I like bowling as much as the next person and I thought it might be a chance to meet some new people. 

I got all dressed in bowling shoes and everything, but no one was there!!  I didn’t want to bowl alone, but I did because no one on my entire friends list was in-world. (That just goes to show why I need to meet new people, yes?)

The Land of Giants is an interesting place. If you ever had the chance to visit Greenies when it was around, then you’ll understand when I say that this place might have been inspiration for it. It’s very 2006-2007, but I get what they were trying to do. If you want to have a dance party on a giant pool table you should ask them if you can hold it there.

I didn’t win anything in the tournament, so I wasn’t the only person to enter. I’m certain that just as I left, hundreds of avatars came and bowled their little hearts out in an effort to unseat me from the top of the leader board. My timing is just bad.
