The new game from MadPeaThe Lost Treasure of the Inca brought together again some of the best artists of Second Life with amazing rewards to be collected and 2 amazing gacha sets, one of which you saw on my At the Dinner Table Post. In this post you can see Kalopsia's and Sway's rewards as well for this really cool project.

This creepy looking shop is the rare item from MadPea for this upcoming round of The Arcade. September round is always my favourite one because I adore Autumn themed sets. The rain, the browns, purples and oranges of the leaves. I love it! More from this really cool set on my next post.

Well, we have some nice goodies in this post. enVOGUE with a new lush style of hair villena with this really lovely simple cut dress and LAQ

LAQ released the new version for their Mesh head, Trinity, and it is great. 
General looks wise: Alpha to the scalp has been added, which will help fitting hair styles. From one type of eyelashes, now there are three to choose from (I'm using the third one) and you can choose the length and colour. I can go all 90's with blue eyelashes! And for the tiny details, LAQ added teeth options. Four options to be exact from perfect never seen a dentist version all the way to Vampire teeth. In this picture I'm using the second one which is a bit like my RL teeth.

Expressions: When the mesh heads took over the expressions moved from pouty upset to pouty sad. Now with all the expressions out there, we photographers, can have the best fun. LAQ had four expressions on the 1.0 version: Eyes open/close, Open Mouth, Closed smile and Open smile. The new fresh thing thing LAQ brought was that every expression (apart from the eyes) have three levels. From a tiny Mona Lisa smile to a full on closed smile, from a polite lovely smile to a laughing smile all teeth. So we actually had 9 expressions and open/closed eyes.

Now LAQ have 12 expressions and open/close eyes. So we have 38 expression in total and you can have the eyes open/closed mixed there. 

The mixing of different appliers on the same head and make up options that will allow mix and math of freckles and makeup will make is even better. For now I'm loving my Izzie's applier. Other skin artists already made some other great appliers too. I can't wait to see what will be next.


Puny God!

I hardly ever if at all do a nude picture in Second live (well, it's not like I do them in Real Life for that matter). I don't feel comfortable with it and feeling even less and less the more time passes. This one is inspired by a real life picture I saw in an exhibition taking Narcissus mythology story into photography as was being done into paintings so many times in the past. I added the feathers with a bit of a wink to another mythological story about Leda and the Swan just because if I was in the neighbourhood, why not? And it got me thinking...

Both stories are somewhat Second Life isn't it? Zeus wants to have a secret love affair with Leda, so he takes the form of a swan to be with her. Like so many who here take the form of an avatar to be with someone in Second Life.

And Narcissus speaks for itself no? We take the form of beautiful swans in Second Life and our ego starts growing till some of us become blind to reality. I'm not saying all of us are like that, but you do nod reading this. Right? Right? I call it soap opera, but thinking about it.. Greek and later on Roman mythology are spot on, on some of the Second Life stories. Won't you agree?

And yes, the title IS a quote from The Avengers. I'm a geek and I'm damn proud of it I tell ya!
