Peaches ‘N Cream at The Epiphany Part One

Max and Peach of Peaches 'N Cream have outdone themselves again for the new round of The Epiphany, opening October 15th.

Their 'Autumn Dreams' gacha set includes some brilliant decor items for both indoors and outdoors. The attention to detail is incredible, every marshmallow on top of hot chocolate is perfectly meshed and textured, even the book covers have a personal touch.

I will feature some of the indoor items and other foodie goodies in a future post, but you can see details of the full set here.

Memory is an autumn leaf that murmurs a while in the wind and then is heard no more

I'm really enjoying playing around with Cynefin's Projection Lighting Kit. It's really easy to use and the effects are fantastic. I particularly like the way it tells you which direction the light is facing - something I always struggled with when making my own projectors.  Well worth checking out.

Thanks again to Alicia for the use of her gorgeous autumnal sim.

My Seven Second Life Facts

Strawberry Singh has set a challenge to share seven facts about your Second Life; details are on her blog. My facts are below...

(also, thanks to my friend Alicia for letting me take this pic on her beautiful sim)


1. My Second Life Fact #1: I have been in SL since 2009 but really just wandered aimlessly for a few years, dabbling in RP but never getting fully invested in anything (or anyone).

2. My Second Life Fact #2: I decided to give SL another go earlier this year, when I found myself with a bit more time on my hands; I thought I'd try my hand at taking pictures and blogging and found I really enjoyed it.

3. My Second Life Fact #3: I have never understood how to use gestures.

4. My Second Life Fact #4: I find it really hard to blog shoes, but signed up to blog for Shoetopia because I find saying no to Sophia Harlow harder than I find blogging shoes.

5. My Second Life Fact #5: Everyone I've become friends with this time round in SL I've met through Plurk and Flickr, never actually in world (except maybe Cassie but we already knew each other on Plurk before the BVN threw us together).

6. My Second Life Fact #6: I co-parent a pig called Wilbur with Lundy, the owner of Hive, but I don't see him as often as I should.

7, My Second Life Fact #7: I dress seasonally in SL because if it is cold outside, my avatar wandering around in a T-shirt makes me feel colder. So it's on with a pea coat...

Taikou has released another amazing backdrop, 'gaien market', for the new round of Kustom9. I feel calling it a backdrop does not do it justice as there are so many aspects to it which will allow you to create multiple scenes. I know I'll certainly be using it again and again and again...
