I Want a Little Sugar in My Bowl

Posted on Updated on

If you made me name just one thing I loved in Second Life (and please don’t make me, that would be impossibly wicked!) I would unquestionably have one-piece outfits on my short list. Whether we call them jumpsuits, rompers, or playsuits, they are just so easy to wear and always get me going in a flash– usually to the latest shopping event, where I’ll most certainly be found picking up demos for even more of these wonderful things to add to my wardrobe!

But – and I pause to take a deep breath here – I may have found the be all, end all romper in CandyDoll‘s Leilani, because you can customize the top and bottom (separately if you like), as well as the gorgeous lace detailing, and the fatpack HUD comes with so many patterns and colors, it’s dizzying and delirious-making, and I couldn’t be happier to be so spoiled for choice!

I’m also quietly mesmerized by the new Jaily hairstyle from EMO-tions for the Hairology event. It’s so beautifully vintage glam, yet still with a modern ease and sensuality about it. As I posed for this picture at the wonderfully picturesque Blithe sim, I couldn’t help softly singing torch songs to myself from the ultimate vintage (and timeless) chanteuse, Nina Simone. Because after all: no matter how lovely the outfit, sometimes a woman just wants a little steam on her clothes. ;)

One of the many things I had always longed to do in Second Life was to visit Elysion, a deliciously named sim with a mythical (in my own mind) presence on the grid. Its Places listing has a wonderful come hither vibe, promising a “lush adult environment catering to the sensual and artistic side of your second life.” To say I found it alluring and intriguing is wildly understated!

Friends and loved ones from my First Life know me fondly as one with a fascination with the sensual and evocative, the artistic and the epicurean. But this facet isn’t something I’ve yet delved and dwelled within on the grid, as my naturally shy and quiet nature often turns me away from curiosity and toward the safe, the familiar. But I feel a keen desire to expand my horizons this time around, so with a tiny flutter in my belly, I landed at Elysion, paid the group enrollment fee for sim access (L$650 at the time of this writing), and slowly began to explore.

I’m delighted to say that the people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting at Elysion (as well as at at Blithe, a kindred sim that also requires group membership), have been wonderfully interesting and thoughtful encounters. And it makes for a very welcome reminder for me: always keep an open mind and heart. You’ll never stop being fascinated and amazed at what flows in. ♡
