Va Gina

Va Gina

I never did do a blog post for my most recent Va Gina video. That’s totally remiss of me as I know some folk in my blog are not virtual players and are not in my virtual Facebook feed to see the update.

For that I apologise. Life has been very hectic for me trying to keep up with work, what’s going on in the world, union activity and frankly my own self.

Anyhow I released it over last Saturday in the very early hours of U.K. time whilst I was asleep.

Yes the scheduled button . Marvellous thing that. Only thing I have noticed that WordPress pretty much sucks at it’s scheduling and that was pretty disappointing to see with another I scheduled. But that’s not for this post.

The video I made with the help of my lovely good friend Yorkie who happens to be the love interest of VaGina.

Yorkie is definitely the most loveliest of souls I have met online and I seriously would use my handbag and swipe someone who would ever attempt to hurt him. Just saying. I adore him and Rosie as good people are very rare nowadays.

Anyhow I digress. (I’m good at digressing). So the video came out and if you follow the story of Va Gina then you understand she is a lady who is fiesty, confident and comfortable in her own skin. Though she likes to spend too much time in the sun. Contrary to dermatological advice,

I enjoy her character at the moment because she is about me and about throwing away the stereotype of what is expected to see of a virtual woman.

Often I wish to change my avatar completely to her but unfortunately SL creators are still stuck in their belief that all women wear one body. (No pun intended).

So I was a little surprised when someone watched my video and made the comments that I was making fun of being fat and using stereotypical humour. I guess fat shaming?

Now that actually did make me question a number of things but certainly not myself at all.

For you see, each character I create are different aspects of me and I reveal those through my characters.

I would never ever fat shame anyone ever. Because I’m not slim gal. I’m “big boned” too!!!

So it is rather ironic that such a comment is made. I don’t consider it nasty or anything and can see the logic of why that person thought to, although on the wrong track.

Va Gina is my way of showing the world that not all women have to be skinny bimbos to be in this world and be seen. To be noticed and to be relevant. Big girls and men can be present in social media for being themselves and not for the over sexualised fantasies of men or women who like big people. Let’s be honest, there’s a whole lot of that in social media at the moment.

So it saddened me to see that kind of comment because, I seriously am the last person who would do that.

But let me add, will it stop me being all of my selves? Errr nope! Because at the end of the day, I do what makes me happy and I respect my own decisions and interpretations.

I want those “big boned” virtual characters to have as much highlight as the Barbie look avatar images. Because reality is about all types.

I want second life to reflect that just like reality all people who are good and decent are beautiful in their own ways.

My Va Vagina is beautiful. She has the sass of the most confident woman but also the vulnerability of the woman who can be insecure. Me. And let’s face it, she has Yorkie!!!!

Now wouldn’t all the women and men out there want that!!

I wanna be Michael Jackson

I wanna be Michael Jackson

If anyone doesn’t know who Michael Jackson was then clearly they haven’t lived to see one of the great performers of a generation.

Michael was part and parcel of my early clubbing years with songs such as Billy Jean and Beat it and my favourite, Rock with you.

I have such great memories of a life moment with his music as part of my younger years.

Moving forward he became my sons icon and he too grew up with a wonderful memory of music that really made you want to dance.

Today, Paragon Dance Animations are able to bring to you a fantastic dance set of those classic moves as he danced.

The animation movements are amazing and you don’t need to just take my word for it. Go along to Uber and sample them yourself.

Now for the video……

Rome wasn’t built in a day

Rome wasn’t built in a day

Listen here.

Rome wasn’t built in a day. So why do people expect change to happen over night?

Explain this to me and I’ll give you £100 for your answer.

Let’s face it, you aren’t going to get that £100. For I would need to have exacted my own change in order to have the spare £100 to give you.

Why? Because nothing worth it’s weight happens in an instant in time. For change to happen, you can wait another lifetime to see it’s results, and then some. That’s just life.

Now just get on with your day and think long and hard, why you read this and what you took away from it.

I’m off now to make a tea and take a selfie.

On my cliff I dance

On my cliff I dance

There’s something mesmerising dancing at the top of a cliff. In this instance, make that a rock.

I was trying to capture a mood, a feeling of free and in control of that freedom.

I’m not sure but I think the dance and the music made me feel that way.

I could easily have swayed by making a booty video. But seriously there’s more to dance than flashing cheeks. There’s the mood and this is what I felt. I hope you enjoy the dance.

I’m dressed!!!!

I’m dressed!!!!

I always struggle with nipple covers. I mean really! If I as going to wear these knickers and heels, I wouldn’t cover my nipples in reality.

No sir I wouldn’t!!!

I tell you why shall I?

Because I’d be hard pressed to find the damn things to stick the boobies cover over!! The gravity is real, very real. that’s all I’m saying.

Lucky in pretend land, no such reality issues. Free gift from Entice at the SL17B.

Linden homes

Linden homes

Without a doubt I am excited to see these New Linden Homes soon to be coming out this year. Right now you can go check them out at the SL17B where they are currently on display.

I love homes like this as they remind me of Australia living in Queensland when we had a house on stilts. Not just American they’re reminiscent of places tropical and where you don’t want the water to flood. I checked these out and fought that lag fest to try and capture them so you can see in case you are too lazy to step into your converse and go walking.

There are a number of styles of the home as in all the Lindens homes when you get them. You can choose the style and floor colourings and wall coverings. I noticed a lovely pale lilac in one of the homes which made me a little bit more excited as Im thinking of beautiful creams and pastels already surrounded by pot plants.

There are 4 styles of homes to be seen both on water, partially on water and on fully on land. All fitting quite well into the beachy theme.

These homes aren’t available just yet so don’t go crazy hoping to move in within the next week. Linden Lab are awaiting regions to become available after the AWS (launch to the cloud).

I wont detail them too much as Im sure you would rather look yourself and so feel free to watch the video and take a leap ride to Lindens demo of the upcoming New Stilt homes

On the bench

On the bench

It’s way too hot to sit inside. I’ve done it all day working at the desk.

So for ease of feeling human, it balcony time and a cooler spot.

I was thinking about what’s going on in the world earlier and considering how many of us have taken the time and care to follow the social distancing rules for COVID19.

Then I think about how it’s slowly unravelling in different hot spots of the world because the infections are slowly starting to appear again.

Whilst, at the same time Knucklehead Boris Johnson is easing off the lockdown in the most frankly imbecilic way.

Not only can we look to step closer than the 2 metres but will be able soon to go hang out in pubs and restaurants get tipsy and well if you are like me when tipsy, you want to hug and kiss the world.

Go figure!

But here’s the dumb bit. Businesses like beauticians, gyms, nail salons etc who have spent money investing in making their premises COVID19 safe. Have now been told they cannot open. How much sense does that make, when bars can open?

None clearly!

So those are the thoughts floating around in my head right now this balmy summer evening.

It’s way too warm to sit at a pc this evening.

To be honest I’ll probably feel that way most of this week as we have a mini heatwave going on this week in the UK.

My pc is also having some issues and I’m feeling a little angsty about it as right now I cannot afford the outlay if this one goes awol.

So I shall sulk in front of a film and consider the universe instead.

Failing that drink tea and sulk.

I’m kidding . I’m not sulking, but contemplating the question of what next .

I’ll wait and find out. Nothing is forever.

Seriously.

Can you believe it!

Can you believe it!

Well nothing surprises me these days.

But today!

Today is my day off and the sun shines!!!!

I’m now sunburnt after sitting outside earlier today. To be fair, I never noticed the sun feeling that warm as I was covered by clouds. But my red face frankly says it all.

On another note. Who is on Tik Tok? Seriously I’ve suddenly gone made in it. Why on Earth didn’t I really get into it ages ago. Omg I have been laughing so much and become addicted!

So I’ve even started making some. RL, and some pixel ones.

I could be considered daft. But my god it’s cheered me up no end to just be silly and know that I’m not alone in the silly. Seriously if you want to find something to watch that’s frivolous. Watch Tik Tok videos.

On another note this gorgeous dress is at the Designer Showcase now till the 30th. It has a hud, so a great reason to go check it out.

A coffee before my next adventure

SL17B is happening and there’s so much to do there. I went for an explore on my own just walking around some of the arty bits and need to go back and take some photos and video.

There is much to see and do and my internet is being a beatch at the moment. I crash and then have to reset firestorm settings every time.

What’s that all about?!!!

All I can say is it better be working when Ebbe is on the meet the Linden’s spot. I’m front row and no one, no one get in my viewing way.

Yes I have a virtual crush going on. Mind you also with Philip Rosedale.

Maybe it’s the whole man who has great mind thing???

Anyhow this outfit, FREE gifts at the #SL17B
