Strawberry Singh’s Halloween Meme

witch

Hey! I decided to post a RL picture of me when I was a kid for this post, as it deals with RL questions about Halloween. I was a pretty cute little witch, I believe I was around 8 or 9 in the photo – I’m not really sure. I loved that birch tree though in my Grandparents front yard.

I think I was trying to make a scary face. I’m pretty sure I did my own make up too for that pic because I remember smearing the green paint on my face and then trying to make it look as nice as my mom could but that never happened! I vaguely remember this. (lolol) I was a goofy kid.

Did you go trick or treating as a child?
I did! I don’t remember the year that I started cause I’m old now but the last time I went was as a joke sometime in High School with a group of friends.

What was the best Halloween costume you ever saw or wore yourself? I think it was when my mom make me a pumpkin costume because that was one of my nicknames when I was little. It was filled with balloons and I loved it. I wish I had a photo of it.

What is your most vivid memory about Halloween? I think the most vivid memories are going from house to house.. knocking on doors, carving pumpkins. When I was older (like around 16) I remember blasting a tape that I had – Wish by the Cure when I passed out candy. It was deliciously creepy!

One year a bit before Halloween when I was about 19 or 20 a group of friends and I went to CVS and bought costumes and candy and dressed up and painted our faces and went and passed out candy to people in the snobby part of town. It was pretty fun.

What is the scariest movie you have ever seen?
When I was a kid.. the scariest movie to me was Pet Cemetery for some reason. I could handle almost any other movie but that one freaked me out pretty bad. I should try to watch it again now that I am older.

Do you ever get nightmares after watching a scary movie? No, not really.

Are you superstitious? If so, name at least one superstition of yours. I’m a little bit superstitious. I avoid sidewalk cracks and I would never do “bloody mary” in the mirror and sometimes I even throw salt over my shoulder if I spill it.

Strawberry Singh’s – What’s your digits? (Meme)

For the last few years, I’ve enjoyed taking part of Strawberry Singh’s Meme – What’s your Digits.. and so when I saw it come around again I had to take part! You can find the instructions on her blog post here that has all the information: http://strawberrysingh.com/2013/06/24/whats-your-digits-take-3-proportions-challenge/

Now before I start, Let me just say that I don’t know much about proportion and stuff like that, I just kinda modded my shape to the Standard Sizing shape (Medium) because I wear a lot of mesh and it makes the clothing fit my avatar better and then moved around the other parts to my personal preference. I don’t know how well I did as far as that goes but I’m pretty happy with my shape.

Do you try and keep your avatar’s body proportionate and similar to the “average” proportions pictured above? – Well to make it easier on myself I go by Standard Sizing Medium because it just helps me fit clothing better and I like the look of it on my shape.

What do you dislike the most about the SL avatar mesh? – I don’t have any complaints but I wish that there was a size between each sizes sometimes of Standard Sizing but I realize how much extra work that would be for designers. The only other thing is that some designers make unwearable to me clothing because the SSM is much smaller than other peoples sizes sometimes.

Does it bother you when you see other avatars that are not proportionate at all? – Not really, but I don’t like the super wide hips and pouty mouth trend – but you know.. if it makes you happy do it! I don’t live your SL life, hehe.

Even though this is a virtual world and people can be anything they want to be, do you feel when they are in human form, they should try to keep their proportions close to average? Pfft, like I said if it makes you happy, do it! Your world – your imagination, right?

I am wearing a really cute “Angel” Headband from Lark which you need to check out at the Retreat here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Angels/36/177/23 Sienia Trevellion has a shop in world and (the dress form on the right is also made by her) and she makes a lot of eclectic and cool treasures, you should do yourself a favor and check out her shop here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/The%20Slums/56/36/28

My Three Wishes – A Strawberry Singh Meme

So I thought about this and well it’s not so easy but I will take a stab at it!

1. Poof. I wish that they would bring last names back. I miss seeing the different and neat-o last names and I kinda liked making alts just to have the name here and there. Maybe that was part of the problem but I just think “resident” sounds so… bad. You know? I don’t want to be a “Resident” I want to have an identity and a last name!

2. I wish that I personally had an easier time of being outgoing and that I could meet greet and socialize with the greatest of ease! I’m not sure why but I don’t have the easiest time of talking to people. I don’t really make an effort to change it though either, so there is that!

3. I Wish that it were easier to meet people that I do make friends with sometimes, like well geographically closer and all and in sync. Some people that I have met I would just like to reach over and give a hug to one day but with limited income it makes that really difficult to give your friend a hug or watch a movie with them in person.

I am wearing Hair from Truth, which is on sale right now! My pose (with the awesome butterflies) is from Ma Vie at the Attic @ The Deck.
