A labor of love.

It’s a jungle out there.

Jungle Girl 011

I’ve had this outfit put together for several days now and was just waiting for the time that I could create a mini jungle or something of that nature to take photos.  After digging in my inventory I found something called the jungle island and attempted to rez it only to discover seconds later that it was the whole setup for a sim. Thankfully, I was up high in the sky on a platform and not on the ground when I made that colossal mistake.  I don’t think some of my neighbors would have been very appreciative of finding themselves buried in what could resemble the amazon forest.

It’s not the first time I have had this happen to me, except back then I was the new kid on the block and I buried a good part of the sim in an underground city.  I can laugh about it now.  It wasn’t so funny then.

Stop to Monkey Around 013

Instead of creating my own scene I thought why not search and see what I could find out on the grid.   I found this jewel of a place called the Makeahla Jungle, that has a tag line of “Rediscover the Heart of Nature.”  I was pleasantly surprised to find this place and see all the animals.  While most of them were mesh and stationary the ambiance of the place was very appealing.  I can’t wait to go back and explore again and take photos of the rest of the animals.

Good & Evil

0196

The dichotomy of good and evil has always been an interesting subject and I can safely say it dates as far back to the age of the bible.  I don’t plan to talk about morals or religion as that is a personal thing that I try never to debate unless it’s with people who will accept your difference of thoughts, beliefs and opinions and can still smile at you after the conversation.  I will say this.  Personally, I think the relevance lies in the seed of both good and evil that exists inside each of us.  It’s definitely a balancing act when it comes to choosing which one will win.

It’s only mid morning and its dark and raining here — so this picture feels perfect for the overcast day we’re having.

Tree Nymph

014-3

I seem to always get blonde or dip dye hairs when I play hair gachas as was the case with this willow tree hair from Little Bones that I got at the Secret Affair event.  Having started off as a redhead in SecondLife and then transitioned into browns/black hairs that felt more natural to me. Maybe I should consider my next major hair change to go blonde — it would save me lots of lindens that’s for sure.

This outfit really started off being pink as both the corset and feather pauldrons are texture change, except finding a bustier with the color to fit the rest of the combination proved to be a bit difficult so I switched to this ivory color.  I see creative looks like this all the time on Flickr and I find them fascinating, so I am just playing to see what I can put together.
