Meet My Friend Challenge – Caelan Hancroft

cae copy

Ok, from the first moment that I saw this challenge my friend Cae first came to mind. She is someone that I make it a point every day to say hi too because we are long past that awkward stage of omg.. should I or shouldn’t I IM this person? I just feel so comfortable with Cae, I can tell her anything and not be judged for it. She is one of my constants here.

She is a very kind and accepting person and I just always have felt really comfy with her which is a treasure in it self. Not only is she a brilliant creator of mesh jewelry at her store Cae she is also a blogger and a fabulous SL photographer all around this girl is fantastic and not only does she do all that she manages Gos/Gos Boutique and has contributed so many skins to the Skin Directory for the fantastic Gos Boutique shoes we all love.

She is an all around great person and friend to me and she goes out of her way for people on many occasions. There are many things that I admire about Caelan that I cannot put into words and tomorrow, July the 3rd is her birthday so this makes the “Meet My Friend Challenge” from Strawberry Singh even more extra special.

Meme Instructions: Pick a friend, any friend, (male or female) take a couple of pictures of (or with) them and ask them a series of questions for a fun and lively post.

Ok, this is where I asked her my own questions!

How long have you been in SL?

– It’ll be six years in December

What would you consider your style of clothing in SL?
– Simple and casual. I used to love dressing up but I haven’t done it in so long it takes me forever!


One item in SL that you could never do without?

– Just one? You’re going to laugh because this is a “me” answer, but I am in love with the inventory boxes I use for storing stuff. Boring, but it keeps me (and my junk) organized.


What do you do in SL?

– Aside from stand on a platform? I create mesh jewelry for my store, manage Gos Boutique, and do the occasional picture or blog post.

What is the craziest thing that you’ve ever done in SL?
– I haven’t really done anything crazy, but at times, I think the craziest thing was to stay.

Did you wear bling back in the day?
– I’m sure I did, but I don’t remember exactly. I probably repressed that memory. I definitely was guilty of wearing full-bright jewelry and clicky shoes.

Do you have a most regrettable SL fashion choice?
– There have been quite a few of them. Most have involved a fluffy ball gown or a review copy that I felt obligated to blog.


What do you think is the best part about SL?

– People here are so freaking creative! We all kind of take it for granted, but everything from the chair you’re sitting on, the shoes you’re walking in, your hair and skin… they’re all the product of someone’s creativity. This place hinges on that and it’s always amazed me.


What are five stores in SL that you’d recommend to a new player?

– Am I allowed to shamelessly plug my own store as one of the five? I kid. Narrowing it down to just five is really hard, but I would try to give a new person places to create a great av: Truth, Belleza, Maitreya, ColdLogic, and Gos.

If you had one piece of advice to offer a new player what would you say to them?
– Keep things fun and don’t get drawn into other people’s drama. We’re all guilty of it, but there’s nothing that sucks the fun out of this place more than that.


What was your first impression about me?

– My first impression of you was as a SLuicide Girl which prolly makes for a rather interesting first impression lol. I just remember thinking that you wrote really well and seemed like an interesting person. I didn’t meet you for real until a couple months after that, but I’m really happy that I did.

Hair – Wasabi Pills, Tanya, Chocolate
Skin – Glam Affair, Summer, Jamaica
Eyes – Ikon, Ascension Eyes, Glass
Top – ColdLogic, Shultz Top, Cream
Jewelry – Cae

Strawberry Singh’s SL Movie Poster Challenge!

slect

Monday Meme Instructions: The challenge for this week is to create a movie poster for your SL Avatar or SLife. You can base it off an original movie poster or think of a completely new idea of your own! Get creative and have some fun with it! You can see Berry’s fabulous post here: http://strawberrysingh.com/2013/06/10/my-sl-movie-poster-challenge/

So I did this poster of my SL Life and tried to change it up a little bit. I did this poster about two years ago for another challenge, you can see my first attempt at this poster here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sylvia_olivier/5771916298/

I’ve fallen off the wagon a bit with the Meme Mondays that Berry does but I think about them every week at least! This was a really fun one and who knows I may do more, I am enjoying this a lot.

For this picture, I found the mini skirt at Fanatik, the shoes are from Gos Boutique and the stockings are from Sheer and I kinda PS’d them in at the bottoms rather poorly but don’t judge lol! The pose is an old one from PDA that was a gift so I’m not sure that its still available. I’m also wearing Slink mesh hands.

Once again, I have fallen prey to another SL Meme and this one is from Strawberry Singh which you can go see her post here: http://strawberrysingh.com/

Before we get to the Meme: I am wearing New stuff from Collabor88. Skirt and Shirt separates from Tee*fy and skin from Glam Affair called Margot. My pose is from Marukin, also at Collabor88.

First SL Friend:
Christen Tristen. We hardly ever talk anymore but she was the first person to show me Elikatira and even gave noob me 200L because there was a sale going on. Very sweet girl who taught me a lot about SL when I was new.

First SL Kiss:
Honestly I don’t even know. I was a hussy back then!

First SLex time/place/partner:
Sumo’s was my hang out. They had dance poles anyone could dance on and get tips from and that is how I earned my first skin lol.

First SL Partner/Girlfriend/Boyfriend/Wife/Husband:
Ricotta Capalini. She was a RL girlfriend at the time.

First SL Job:
First real job was at a place called the Dakota Marine Park as a host. It was actually designed like a Marine Park we had trivia nights on Saturday and contests throughout the week like fishing, It was a super fun job and it paid really well.

First SL Creation:
A very poorly made table :/

First Encounter with a Linden:
I don’t remember this.

First Encounter with a SLebrity:
It was Callie Cline actually.. back in 2007, and I asked her to take a photo with me. I think that I still have it.

Things that piss me off- about or in SL – a Strawberry Singh Meme

petp

Ok, so I changed the title a bit. If you want to read the original Meme that the lovely Berry wrote you can do so here: http://strawberrysingh.com/2013/04/01/my-sl-pet-peeves-meme/

There are of course exceptions to this and some of this is just meant to be funny:

1. Right when I log in I like a few minutes to read notecards or look at group notices. There is a very short list of people to where this does not bother me at all but if I don’t know you too well it’s going to annoy me a little.

2. When people misspell my name as “Silvia” or when strangers call me “hun, sweetie.. etc.” especially if you are someone that is wearing a system skirt with 2009 Damselfly hair and bling or if you are a dude with basically anything “Gorean” in your profile or your wang is exposed or any combination of anything I mentioned, basically you are gonna get muted.

Speaking of wangs and such.. why do certain guys deem it necessary to IM you out of the blue with shit like “Y U SO SESSY for me.. giv me a BJ girl..” Yeah let me get right on that.

I also hate it when people downright lie about their gender. There is no need for that.

3. Flickr groups: Please don’t paste me your awards, I don’t want them. I don’t care if you saw my image in the “Big Booty Bitches of SL group” I do not want your big ass tacky gif in the comments. Please GTFO. I love regular comments though and when you comment and favorite or comment or favorite my Flickr Photos it makes my day.

4. My current annoyance is with a store that I just went to recently. I do not want to use your almost all white HUD with no contrast to where I have to squint my eyes to the point of pain just to shop with or deposit money so that I can shop at your store or get a million folders for your demos and then try on said demo and realize you have to buy everything else separate and there is not even a demo for that and if there is I don’t know how the fuck to find it. *takes a deep breath* Shopping in SL should not have to be so stressful.

5. When you are just sitting there minding your own business and a group IM pops up and you close it and it pops up again. WTF is that? Or when someone IM’s the group and asks for a LM or when you tell someone the name of a store and they say LM? Why can’t you use search?

Anyhow, take what I said with a grain of salt if you made it this far.
