Petites Kingdom

I remember the first days as a new resident to SecondLife, I was completely lost and confused. I had come from a very heavy roleplay background, mostly fantasy and mythological based. Creating characters like Sidhe, Dragons, Centaurs, Satyrs and other preternatural beings was highly appealing to me, and when I stepped foot in Second Life, that was the first thing I wanted to do.

My pursuit for fantastical things was a rough start, but once I dug around using search I came across what to me was the foundation of my fantasy based Second Life. Fallen Gods, Inc. is where I bought my very first fantasy skin, a dark nearly black skin that was for my otherwordly creation that was basically made of shadows, thus the dark skin. Fallen Gods was the choice for me, and I was highly impressed by everything within the store and the detailed island that the store resided upon. When I think fantasy, I think Fallen Gods so when Petites came out and Fallen Gods was on board with the amazing frenzy that is Petites, I had to get one.

Unfortunately the female Fallen Gods Petite avatars were out first and the male came later, so I waited very impatiently for the release. When release day finally came I rushed to get mine and what you see below is my creation using the Petites avatar to create a very wimsical and bardish Fae being, Riley.  We even created a little home for them on our sim.

Gabriella and I have had a great time creating our petites since their release, and we are always seeking out fun things to use for them or add to their very tiny yet still huge wardrobes!

But enough about my love for Fallen Gods and Petites, let’s get to something of complete amazement in a small package. I’m talking about Petites Kingdom a petite sized sim made especially for the wee little ones!

For me, Petites offer up the whimsy and wonder that we lose when we move from childhood to adulthood. Those wonder filled moments that have you imagining the dead tree down the street is really a dragon in disguise, the backyard is a treasure filled forrest that faeries live within and you swear you can see them out of the corner of your eye, but they are too fast and wisk away on colorful wings, giggling at your slow reaction compared to their swift movements from flower to flower!

Even if you are a bigguns aka a non-petite normal sized avatar, come check out the amazing build of the Petites Kingdom sim. I encourage you to see the fantastic images done by the ultra talented Strawberry Singh on her official blog here.

Now on to even more spectacular small sized fun that is sure to be hugely rewarding! The Crystal Hunt will be starting on the opening day of the Petites Kingdom sim. on Saturday, September 29 @ Noon SLT. The hunt will start at noon SLT with celebrations starting at 3pm SLT and going until 9pm SLT. Big or small all are welcome!

Here is a taste of what you can find in your adventure!

The ultra talented Strawberry Singh posted a tutorial on her blog on how to create a mirror effect in world.  I was really excited to try this out because it’s NOT a Photoshop tutorial.  I strive to get nice effects on my photos using windlight only.

My first try was a flop and I was quickly discouraged.  I put the idea away over the weekend and decided on a totally different image to do this with.  The result is below and I am very pleased with it.  Give it a try, it’s far simpler than it may seem!

Evolve!

I had the absolute pleasure of spending the early afternoon with BellaStarr Fhang.  I have admired Bells blog ohhmaiblog and her exceptional photography for some time.  I love to see what great looks she will put together, how imaginative her scenes can be and the way they simple have such life.  Along the journey of watching her blog, her images have evolved and become better and better.

But have you heard, she has opened a great little cozy pose shop called evolve.  I am enjoying her poses so much, they are fun and well created and very suited for photographs!   I urge you to head over to her shop in world and take a look.  Watch for her upcoming releases for Super Bargain Saturday too!
