… blogging from a virtual world
So I’m a Post 6 Grrrl
First and foremost, thanks has to go to Bunny for allowing me to be a Post 6 Grrrl, ❤ you Bun Bun, no matter what your profile says *wink*. You know I’m still dying to be in your Graphic novel & I’m looking forward to working with you again soon!
Now story time.
Way back when I was a little noob still finding my way around our big wide Second world, a very patient woman helped me out, taught me how to ’emote’ and put more feeling into what I was chatting, gave suggestions on how to engage people and ‘build a picture’ with my words. She really took the time to Role play with me and set me to thinking how to more actively engage in RP and helped me to see the benefits that could be gained out of it . (You see, for me, Second life is the first virtual environment where I’ve ever interacted virtually with other people).
That was Silk Fussbudget.
Silk also hinted that I should give serious thought to my appearance, gave me suggestions on places that I should shop, helped me think about creating ‘images’ to achieve a look. Every time I saw Silk she looked completely different. From a dazzling beautiful fairy, to a bald headed tattooed Lesbian, Silk always wowed me with her looks. I was very much in awe of the ease of how she was able to create these persona’s. I have to thank Silk for telling me about Szentasha & the thigh high latex boots that I still slip on occasionally when I’m putting together one of my fantasy outfits.
Oh & I have to give complete credit to her for telling me Goldie Locks Hair. I had Hairgasms the day I stepped into that store. Now that I think about it, that was the first time I threw caution to the wind and ended up buying 5-6 different styles in the one shop at the same time. (I used to agonise over hairstyles & whether they would suit me or not). Now I know even the most die hard of you will be saying ‘thats nothing’ but to a noob only being in world for a couple of months it was a revelation to find a place that had so many styles, that were so reasonably priced with great colour pack variations. And yes, again, every once in a while, I’ll put one of their styles or another on to see how it looks.
Sienna was my signature hair. Every time I put it on when I was a dancer, people would sit there mesmerized as I would wrap them up in it like a blanket, play hidey in there, do all sorts of naughteh things while other people couldn’t see through my long full lustrous locks. I became well known for my “hair jobs”.
The point to my story about Silk is that not long after I met her, Silk became a Post 6 Grrrl. I was so in awe of knowing this lovely person that the whole of SL knew as well. So, in light of my recent honour, I dedicate my Post 6 Grrrl status for the week to Silk & all those other unsung heroes that spend their patient time holding Noobies hands as they take their toddler steps through Second life.
