Swiss Cheese People in Second Life

In Community, Events, Fashion by Kyng Johin

At a fairly crowded event in SL recently, I noticed that about half the people there were either naked [mesh clothing would not rez] or in pieces [mesh parts did not rez]. When I see people in pieces like this, it makes me think of Swiss Cheese, with a hole here and a hole there. Now, Swiss Cheese may look great on a sandwich but it does not look so great on an avatar.

For example, here I am strutting my stuff in all my mesh glory. My lovely little mesh dress and my gorgeous mesh feet rez beautifully in … Read more at the source.

Lost in Second Life

In Community, Events, Fashion by Kyng Johin


I have just finished a marathon viewing of the series “Lost” [which will soon be celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the show's broadcast premiere on September 22, 2004]. I had checked out the pilot episode, for old times’ sake. But like before, I found myself watching episode after episode, all the way to the end.

What, you may ask, has this got to do with Second Life, or any virtual world?

When I discovered Second Life, in 2007, the SL mainland was like an island, and I had crash landed there. I did not know where to go, what … Read more at the source.

A Giant Step Backward

In Community, Events, Fashion by Kyng Johin

Like everyone else, I have been anxiously awaiting the new avatars. Because every time new avatars have been released, they have been better than the ones before them. But not this time. Avatar shape creation in SL has just taken a giant step backward.

The female avatars are interesting, fascinating to watch, just like with any new toy. The hands are much prettier than previous avatars – that is a plus – they just look too big for the body.

But these mesh avatars are not attractive in face or form. Their skin and eyes are much like the starter … Read more at the source.

Sunday, May 11th, is Mother’s Day in the USA. Children all across the states are trying to keep secret plans for special gifts and events to celebrate the day [with a little help from Dad, of course].

Release the Kraken!

In Community, Events, Fashion by Kyng Johin

Ebbe Linden, CEO of Linden Lab, has stated that Linden Lab employees are being encouraged to spend time in SL. He is, in essence, releasing the Kraken* [the Lindens] upon the residents of Second Life.

But before he throws the gates wide open, it might be wise to become familiar with just exactly what image these employees are showing to the world, and what the employees are saying about Linden Lab by their appearance

Previously, when the Lindens did roam Second Life, one Linden, in particular, would appear in a dominatrix outfit, leather, chains and all. What does this say … Read more at the source.

Outlet Shops – Quality and Affordability

In Community, Events, Fashion by Kyng Johin

It seems everywhere I go now, outlet shops are appearing next to or behind main stores. Top designers of skin, hair and eyes are offering their older designs in outlet shops, at a reduced price.

Newcomers to SL are most interested in these three things, and these outlet shops are an excellent source of affordable, good quality items for noobies. Also, it makes the items available to oldbies, when they want to pick up an extra copy of an old favorite.

The fashion industry in SL is king, with new items appearing daily. It is this fashion industry that keeps … Read more at the source.
