Every Monday Strawberry Singh is blogging a new meme and this weeks topic is Second Life names and how they can tell a story … or not. And like always I am behind on my second life bloggers to do list working on this post on Thursday and posting it on Friday so here we go….
Meme instructions: Copy and paste the following 8 questions and answers to your blog post, delete my answers and input your own! Don’t forget to visit SL Names Meme – Strawberry Singh to leave your comments there
❶ What’s your SL name?
❷ What made you choose this name?
My RL name is Ingrid and when I was a child I was little so my nick name was inkie for a very long time until I grew up in more ways then one.
For the Loudwater last name I did not think it mattered. I just was checking out SL on rainy December day when I was sick @ home from work and I saw a documentary about sl and I wanted to see for myself what the hype was all about . Little did I know as soon I was in I was hooked and a sl junkie.
❸ What’s your SL nickname, or what do most people call you? (if applicable)
Inks or Inkster but most of the time just inkie
❹ What’s your SL display name? Why do you choose to have one? (if applicable)
ℹηΚℹҽ because I like the letters I used to display it
❺ Do you like your SL name?
❻ If you could change your SL name, what would it be?
Inkie Pinkie I would put a capital I in the inkie and although pink is not my favorite color in real life in second life it surely is. Why ? Because being in sl is like playing with Barbie all over again and Barbie’s favorite color is pink.
❼ What’s the craziest/funniest SL name you’ve ever seen?
To many to mention and to hard to remember them all really. Sometimes I think wtf was on your mind coming up with a name like that? I don’t like names with numbers in it like dates of birth or Peter365445 and I giggle seeing names with Master ( Insert a name here ) …. who are you kidding get a grip on yourself and girls with lady’s private parts in there name.
❽ What’s the coolest (your favorite) SL name you’ve ever seen?
Beloved Brandy I love the book written by Toni Morrison Beloved and I like the taste of the brandy drink once in a while. This was the main reason I took the step to talk to the girl who was wearing this name so proudly. We became friends and over time she became somebodies wife and here last name was replaced by his. My question is the following : Why do woman do that ? I don’t see man doing that ( or I missed seeing them ) not in RL and in SL neither.
Of all the Disney characters Snow White is for me the girl I grew up with. My mom telling her story and I loved the 7 dwarfs and the fact she could talk with the animals in the Forest. For Disney Bound with Snow White as theme you can choose from the color pallet with red , yellow and blue like you see on the picture above. If you go search on Google images for Disney Bound Snow White you can find much more combinations and ideas.
A view weeks ago I entered a new challenge the SL Disney Bound Challenge and I am behind on schedule as usual. Beginning this challenge I thought I knew everything about Disney and the personalities ever showed in Disney movies but it turns out I don’t know nothing. Today’s character Gaston is one of Disney’s villains and he appears in Beauty and the Beast and I totally forgot about him. Here is my view on the Gaston look. The challenge is not about trying to look like the characters but take elements of there clothing and mix and match and make it your own so I did.
Last change today to go to the Pose Fair 2013 to shop until you drop for poses and props. Last day as well for .the event. HOLLYWOOD to pick up this beautiful skin from **SHINE**
SL fabulous blogger Strawberry Sigh is asking everybody to dig deep , think back hard and meme your 10 SL firsts
№ 1 First SL Friend: Miss Kitty C. I don’t give out her last name because after some months of hanging out Miss C. told me she was a he behind the keyboard. I was cool with it but Kitty gradually logged in with a male avi called Dino and we lost touch. Once in a blue moon we are talking and sometimes I talk with Kitty and sometime with Dino. I miss the days when Kitty and me sitting on a camping chair trying to sit long enough to make some Lindens to get at least one snap shot done.
№ 2 First SL Kiss: I was here for 3 days and a vampire asked me if he could kiss me and I said yes He sent me some kind of animation order but I did not knew how to work it It took some texting and talking to get it right and he went straight to my neck. After months when I knew how my inventory worked I found his bite mark he sent me. What a sweet heart ……
№ 3 First SLex time/place/partner: Antonio Not giving out last names here as well He thinks he is one of second life biggest player but he is also sweet @ heart and totally harmless
SLex involves to much typing and the lag is killing for my sexual appetite so I am living a sex free sl for years now.
№ 4 First SL Partner/Girlfriend/Boyfriend/Wife/Husband: Zach we partnered after knowing one and other for 3 weeks and broke up after 1.5 weeks. The fastest sl love story ever ( I think ) He changed avi’s so many times I lost counting. Sometimes a strange name pops up in my IM and it is “Zach” back with a different name and different shape. Always fun to talk to him and what ever he is doing now I wish him all the love in the world.
№ 5 First SL Job: Hostess in club Woods The place is closed now but there is going to be a reunion the 13th of April and only for that I will fight the lag and work again as a hostess So bring on the dancing HUD and activate the gestures and let the house , techno and dance music spin.
№ 6 First SL Creation: .A platform I even linked the parts and felt I was quit a builder. Nothing came out of it there are very talented ppl out there who can do it much better then I ever could.
№ 7 First Encounter with a Linden: Never met a Linden I only spent ( a lot ) of Linden(s)
№ 8 First Encounter with a SLebrity: What is a SLebrity? Somebody who designs and everybody knows ? Some well know blogger everybody is following ? Some DJ who is playing in clubs ? I was very happily surprised when I saw Lila Quander one of my favorite blogger in COLLABOR88 some time ago and it took all of my nerves to talk to her in IM and you know what? She is a very nice person and why should that shock me? From that moment on I believe all people in second life are looking for contact and that goose for the famous blogger the well known designers and even the busy DJ’s Why log in on a social platform called second life to begin with if you don’t want to reach out to people ? Don’t correct me if I am wrong on this one and let me believe.
№ 9 First SL Sim you fell in love with: Izzie’s it changes every season a photographers heaven and for my old PC almost the only place that rezzes perfectly.
№ 10 First SL Blog Post: B&W Hippie Obviously I did not had a clue what I was doing. Had no idea how to bring some light to the pictures and did not knew I would hang in to blogging for so long.
The Pose Fair 2013 is still open until the 14th of April so there is only 1 week left for you to see all what is new and happening in poses and props.
Enjoy your Sunday and have a great week with lots of sun and shopping fun.
