During the Pandemic the one thing that has made me chuckle are the social influencers. You know the ones who are caught out doing everything we mere mortals are told we cannot do.
Yet they use their platforms during this time to still show us they’re on their “essential” work trips. I’ve sat back and thought to myself they really are ripe for the mockery. I think in the last year we all have really learnt more about life etc to see a lot more clearly.
The influencers have a misjudged idea that the general public “need” to see them having a good time. I would actually say they’re deaf to what their followers need and want. Hence there has been incredible negative reactions to many of them recently.
I wanted to create a new character and here she is Delores the social influencer. Today she is just being the current thoughtless influencer.
Don’t worry her character has more to her that will develop. As will my voice as I do her more often. Getting into character can be hard when in my head I start becoming all of them. Essentially they all link to me, Liz. So I guess that makes sense.
Some days I feel like a change and I mix it up a little with my various avatars.
The day I took this photo I had gone to my Kalhene avatar and shot this photo. I have considered really I need to name her.
After all she at least deserves that . I haven’t settled on her “look” yet but I feel she is a Dolores.
Will she become a video character? Quite possibly if I can somehow get my voice to come up with another sound for her.
It’s not easy maintaining a vocal for my characters as often I flip into each character and have to remind myself which one I am.
Harriet, Thelma and Beverley I have an ability to revert to when I need to. Va Gina is still a hard one to be and something I’m still working on. It’s possible her vocals may change slightly as it’s harder to maintain her when I’m a naturally higher pitched person.
I do love it when I get the chance to hang out with people that I don’t often get the chance to. Time differences and also the real fact that my SL time is spent very busy doing things for blogs or videos for myself or others.
To be honest that is how I like it. My virtual time is a great release to me of reality and it’s negatives and keeping mentally busy suits me well.

It’s Wednesday and for me it’s a struggle of week.
To be honest it usually is of late for one reason or another and that’s just how it is in the current climate. Today after a rather eventual night I decided I really need a break. A complete detach where I don’t get up and start work.
I decided to treat myself to a day off on Friday and see if I can realign my Chakras or at the very least, relax and see a friend or two.
Though I’ve not made arrangements either as I want to just let my day flow.
Last night at 2 am was really my last straw. My bed broke!
Yep you read that correctly the base slats which were a previous repair job suddenly caved in and my mattress took me to a place I really didn’t fancy being in. The hollow of the netherworlds under my bed. God knows what ner dwellers live there but I came back up again.
To be honest it’s really the last thing I needed right now given cash is a little tight these days and I’m trying to get used to downsizing life in preparation for let’s face it pending recession.
So, my decision is….
I’m going to ditch the bed and put the mattress on the floor and turn all Japanese . Why not!
The only thing my daughter did point out was would I be able to get up . Cheek of it!!! So today I’m Dolores my Kalhene avatar. (That’s my nickname for her).
I’m having a quick review of the Kalhene Anya Bakes on Mesh avatar.
When I say quick, you better believe there’s no waffling on my part.
To be honest, this avatar is so easy to use that all that faffing we do with heads and bodies seems so complicated in comparison. However for ease of those who perhaps don’t know I’ve included one of my first videos for Kalhene here in order to reference.
There are things I have been asked to review and I never profess to be an expert.
Like anyone else out there, often I am bumbling my way along the mesh corridors of Second Life, looking for the book “Mesh for Dummies”.
Sadly I still have not found it. When I have and I feel informed enough, perhaps I’ll take the reviewers plunge.
In the meantime you can make go with my wee efforts now and then and give them a bit of oooo aaa if you can do that I don’t feel so daft.
That look of shock on my face is the indication of my real persona.
I just woke up not so long ago to a beautiful day here in the U.K.
It’s like spring has spring all over again and promises to be a day of sunshine and barbecues. I may need to go buy lots of flowers to spread around the apartment to add to that spring vibe we have.
You may notice I look somewhat different. That is because I wanted to blog the Anya avatar by Kalhene.
I have not changed her aside from popping on lippy and eyeshadow. I’m still yet to decide on the shape I’m playing around with for her as I’m trying to reproduce what is the ISA face shape. I may not achieve it but it’s interesting attempting.
I love the curviness of this avatar and frankly it’s just so simple to use . For those new to the whole mesh experience, I’d highly recommend her because there is no complicated buttons etc, hiding this and that. It’s out the box. Add and dress. Plus price!!!!
Now I have found maitreya clothing for me is the best fit. As you can see the fit is great with this outfit at the EQUAL10.
