Kawaii

Kawaii

Ok so Im in love with these dances. Seriously in love.

When Jonny and I were filming Paragon’s demo video a few days ago I wanted to pick up the wee  kawaii girls and pop them in my pocket.

Seriously adorably most cute.

I went for a little sexier mature feel to my video in red and black and music that’s as far from Kawaii as you can get. But yet I thought went quite well with the dance.

Hope you enjoy.

Take the day on

Take the day on

I currently have a perpetual headache.

A literal one, not a wider more reflective of life one. Though that exists too.

The past few days suddenly I’m spiking with this unforgivable headache that clearly fancies me rather well and doesn’t want to go anywhere at all.

Bloody cheek! I never invited him to stay. But he has moved into my head and taken up residence because he felt like it.

Yes I’m discussing my headache in the third person.

Covid lockdown has this effect on me. I think I’m starting to talk to myself. It’s hard to know as the back and forth is quite good. It’s almost though someone else is in the room!

Anyhow as previously said before I discovered Tik Tok.

OMG I seriously haven’t laughed so much as I have recently. Why I never discovered its entertainment value ages ago I don’t know. Oh yeah because it had the kids all over it.

Well now it has been hijacked by us boomers!!

I made a mashup video of what I’ve been up to. You will clearly see I’ve had a jolly good time playing with the little app.

The hills are alive

The hills are alive

Good morning world. I could potentially sing “the hills are alive with the sound of music”.

But, they’re not. They’re drowning in rain and and nothing like this view my virtual me is having.

I have actually made a video but that will go onto YouTube later today because frankly I had a date with a show I wanted to watch. Well a series. The Act.

The true story of a mother who seriously could have done with some psych help before destroying her daughters life.

I’m only at the end of episode 1 and already I want to slap that mother and keep on slapping her.

However the end of episode 1 when the daughter climbs out of bed, cracks her feet and back as she walks to the fridge certainly sent a shiver.

The outfit I’m adorned in is at the Deesigner Showcase and has a hud. Just saying….

A tale of two worlds

A tale of two worlds

This weekend Im betwixt and between mixing up Second Life and Sansar.

Glastonbury Lost Horizons has been in Sansar and Ive been stalking all the cool DJ’s like Pete Tong. Carl Cox and Fatboy Slim aka Norman Cook to name a few.

Seriously it was amazing!!!! Amazing!!!

People often question me about why I like Sansar and why when its nothing like Second Life.. Well that’s a daft question and the answer lies within it.

Because its nothing like Second Life!!

I enjoy the two for very different aspects and that will never change. I love both worlds for what they bring to me personally in terms of exploring and creativity and its as jolly simple as that.

The fact that many Second Lifers gave Linden Lab such a rocking hard time over it still astounds me. Entitled is the sentence I use for them because frankly we are privileged to have either world to use.

Second Life is a different type of world and why anyone ever tried to compare the two again astounds me. But then Im a free thinker and make my own mind up about things in life rather than listening to all the conspiracy nonsense out there usually.

Anyhow as I sit here on my shore deciding what I am going to do for the evening.  May I say aesthetically I look very pretty here. Realistically I am currently Hagrid with some lippy on this morning, getting ready to Tok my Tok.

A quiet moment

A quiet moment

I’m having a bit of a hiatus in extreme blogging for a few days.

Also filming. I just require a break for a bit so I can ask myself a few all important questions about the meaning of life etc etc.

Not really. I just fancy some chilling time.

Earlier I connected up my streaming and went live on TWITCH from Sansar.

It wasn’t exciting to watch but I had to test to make sure it’s working. Tomorrow I’ll test going live on all platforms to see if I have the hang of it.

I’m not sure which crazy world I’ll go in but I’ll just spin the bottle and wherever it lands, that will be it.

There is a reason for this madness, which will become clear in July, as long as I get it right.

Other than that it is time for me to strip off and go under cover as Thelma and lay by the water.

Hang out

Hang out

Some days I wake up and Bing it’s all in place , life.

Other days like today I wake up and just want to hang out! No pun intended. (Ok Yes pun intended) the picture was one I had done ages ago and I thought bing I’ll use it today.

Last night I did a live stream. In my pyjamas with my hair wild looking like Hagrids old Aunty Myrtle. Seriously picture that image and that is what poor old Youtube had coming out of the ethers of internet.

If anything I demonstrated that Covid lockdown is real and not those glossy gorgeous filtered images we see all the time of all the “beautiful” people who we all wish to have some semblance of appearing like.

There was a point to appearing like that. To show people that I’m the same as them and that perception is often misjudged/misguided.

Anyhow I was addressing some of the critique I have received over my character Va Gina. It’s interesting because the assumption was that I was likely “fat shaming” big people by my character and my vocals for her. I sound manly apparently.

Which left me actually taken aback and analysing myself for a time about it. But after some reflection I certainly stand by what I say and Aunty Va Gina will be going no where and will be staying.

I love her character and her gregarious manner and the body. I love that body because as a person who is not a Barbie in reality, she epitomizes myself and many other “big boned” women who are sassy, confident, gregarious and dare I say it also sexy!!! Or who aspire to be!

Removing the stereotypical slim framed avatar and reflecting that just like in real life, there are all shapes and sizes. Using her for comedic video is to me no different than using any of my other avatars at all. Her wholesome larger than life avatar has as much right to be on the screen as does the slim version of me.

Anyhow. Sadly not enough creators make for the Piggu avatar and at the moment I struggle with some animations for her. But I love her. Let’s get behind more creators in our virtual world supporting the bigger woman if she wants to be so.

That is all. Over and out.

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!!
