Thank You For Being My Friend

A shopping day with a friend is the best therapy in the world, unfortunately, it seems Addy and I went a little overboard and as we loaded out packages on the subway car, there was so many we couldn’t possibly sit down. We grabbed, the pole and gave a show to the guy drinking coffee instead, I don’t think he was as amused as we were.

Lybra has this amazing new bodysuit with optional jacket available right now at FaMESHed and comes in 10 amazing colors. Grab the fatpack for even more customization and a total of 17 colors. I chose to go opposite of Adalynne with the color scheme but all the colors are stunning. This is made for Maitreya only.

Breathe is in PocketGacha with two fabulous types of shoes in this month’s amazing gacha set. What I love the most about Breathe is that you have the option of buying the fatpack without ever playing the gacha machine. These shoes are fit for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink and come with the fatpack HUD included.

I love Adoness, have I said that before? I’m kind of late to the blogging game for Cruella and she’s not as active as she used to be in Second Life, I messaged her when we set this shot up because I knew it would be perfect to complete my look. This hair comes with a system tattoo hairbase which doesn’t work with mesh but you can use it with any compatible hairbase or purchase a compatible hairbase from Adoness.

E.T.

When I first put this look together I had a vision of how it would go, it didn’t so when I woke up after a restless night I set my scene again with a different pose and took a much better shot. I’ve been reminded lately why I got into blogging in the first place, it wasn’t for free stuff or even to really feature brands or events, that came much, much later. I got into blogging because I am a photography addict, I love taking pictures, and once upon a time I couldn’t take a posed shot to save my life. How times have changed and as we move into a new year I hope to focus on the photographic factor while doing justice to the wonderful designers, brands, and events that have entrusted me with their creations.

I am completely caught up on my commitments and wanted to something just for me, I had gotten these boots from Breathe when PocketGacha started on December 15 and had not had a chance to include them in a blog until now. What I love about PocketGacha, other than the lack of lag, the ability to play anywhere, and the ease is the chance to purchase full packs at a reduced price. That’s right, some designers offer you the chance to buy the fatpack outright rather than play the gacha and Breathe is one of them! When you buy the fatpack you get both pairs of boots with the fatpack HUD. It’s truly awesome and I think I’ve done it this way since the inception of PocketGacha because I just adore Breathe.

The shoes were the easy part and being broke meant I couldn’t go buy something new to go with them so I hunted through my inventory for a bodysuit and found this one from Erratic. Honestly, I’d forgotten I had it so I was stoked. Everything else fell into place after that.

I have mentioned that I just adore Adoness right? Well this one, again, is an older hair and available at the main store location. It is a shaved hair and does require a hairbase, Adoness sells appliers for Catwa and LOGO Omega which works on my LAQ mesh head fabulously, try a demo first though.

If I Can Dream

It is a brand new year, I stayed up so late last night with my friend I actually slept in for the first time in a very long time. I had a good NYE, spending time with my mom and daughter, playing Yahtzee and finally winning the final game of the night by a landslide. I finished off the night by ringing in the New Year with a very dear friend, playing greedy. I just want to wish everyone the best of 2018 and if I can dream, so can you.

When I saw Moda’s contribution for this rounds PocketGacha I just had to share it with everyone. In November she had created a male Elvis outfit and it was so popular the ladies wanted their own and she happily complied and offered this lovely jumpsuit. This set includes 10 commons, 3 rares and 3 ultra rares. They are fit for Maitreya, Hourglass, and Freya only and the mic common has 3 different animation options, although I used mine with a pose. I chose to showcase the ultra-rare which comes with the boots as well as the jumpsuit.

Adalynne posed with me but isn’t doing a blog, she chose the red and black Queen of Rock rare.

This fabulous hair is from one of the newest designers to allow me to blog for them. Again, it’s an older hair but I just LOVE the shaved sides that Adoness does with her hairs and I thought the fabulous blue/black color was great for my Elvis impersonation.

HairAdoness – Doris Blue & Green

The decor is mostly from a store called House of Wax, I love the mesh people they create because it helps fill in a scene without bothering people to come stand in. I am not going to list them all here but check out the House of Wax to see more that they offer.

This fun wheel made for a perfect addition to my set and can be grabbed at Uber from Kraftwork right now. This beautiful decor piece spins on touch.

What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve

It’s New Year’s Eve, time to say goodbye to a very bad year, well not all bad but pretty bad. I’ve still got some bad to look forward to in 2018 but hopefully, the end result of that will be something very, very good. I have set some blogging goals for myself in 2018, one is to get better with my photography, to push myself into trying new things and to not be afraid. It is time, after 3 years of blogging to grow again, my blog has grown a little bit each year and this time I want BIG changes.

I really want to focus more on decor blogging, sometimes alone and sometimes as a scene. The first time I saw this gacha set from Bee Designs I knew I wanted to blog it, becoming a decor blogger isn’t easy, especially when the past 3 years has been focused on fashion. For so long I’ve used backdrops as the main focus of behind me in a blog, but a backdrop can be used for so much more. I had a lovely Ionic backdrop that I used for the walls of my room.

Too Much Time on My Hands

It’s creeping up to the new year, time to throw away the old and make way for the new. I’ve decided that isn’t only relevant in real life and it’s time to create a new year, new you in Second Life as well. I’ll start with creating a new style of photography and blogging. I won’t stop writing I enjoy that part far too much. It is my intention this year to improve my photography skills, learn new things to help me get those spots that I want so badly. It’s time for another growth of Danni’s Dream. I hope you will all join me on this journey and offer constructive criticism when needed in the comments.

I’ve decided to take some help and advice from my very dear friend Adalynne Romano, she’s bossy and demanding and usually absolutely right. She poked and prodded, suggested and demanded, and what you see here is the end result of that. I wanted to blog this lovely sweater and wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to do with it. I started searching through my blog groups to see what decor items were available and I found these amazing clocks from Plastik. Available right now at SaNaRae, which runs from 12/26 until 1/17, you can pick 5 individual packs of two clock colors or a fatpack that includes four special colors as well. I took my shot and wasn’t entirely happy with how little of the clock you could see, inspiration struck and I added some smaller clocks. These clocks are resizeable through the modify function to be able to fit them in your decor.

This sweater is from Lybra and is available in 11 individual colors or a fatpack with 17 colors. It is fit for Maitreya only.

The perfect shot requires the perfect pose. It doesn’t matter how good you look if the pose doesn’t do it justice. Foxcity is by far one of my favorite pose creators in Second Life. I feel that Satomi does a fabulous job at bringing my avatar to life.

Now we get to the part where I have to really re-think my photography. As you may know, I tend to do a full shot then zoom in on my face to provide a closeup of my face. Sometimes the number of pictures I do is overwhelming, not only to my readers but to myself as well. It’s all about the angle and the zoom factor in Second Life.

Adoness very graciously accepted my application to become a blogger for her. I have used her hairs for YEARS, I love the funky styles that she produces and this hair, although older is still completely relevant. I love the curly, a-line style of this hair and how it frames my face so fantastically.

White Christmas

I just have to state that this is the biggest decor blog I have ever done and I am pretty proud with how it turned out. That being said, White Christmas has been one of my favorite songs for as long as I can remember. I saw the movie for the first time when I was about 13 and discovered at that time it was my mom’s absolute favorite movie as well. There isn’t a Christmas that goes by now that we don’t throw it in the Blu-Ray player and watch it, my kids love it too. It is a timeless classic and I am so glad it is there to help me make memories with my kids.

PocketGacha, if you haven’t heard of this or used this what have you been doing? Living under a rock? PocketGacha is the new way to play gacha. Every month on the 15th at 7 am you attach your HUD, where ever you are, give it permissions and start playing. Some designers even give you the option of buying the fatpack without playing! This is the most innovative gacha system I have ever seen and I love it.

This month Apple Fall has some offerings for the PocketGacha this month, the first gacha that he has done in 3 years I think I heard the rumor was, I don’t know how true that is but it’s what I heard. This set is so amazing I had to play to win. It includes 2 rares and 8 commons. The truck and wrought iron chair are the rares and OMG that truck is just awesome.

Mesh India also has a lovely set of winter decor in PocketGacha, there is 5 commons and one rare to win in this set.

I needed some stuff to complete my scene and I had heard there was a couple of cute gachas over at The Chapter Four. Bee Designs has a super cute snowman gacha and I found all the yummy treats I could ever need from SESE.

I’m still wearing my LAQ Scarlet MoCap head, I am genuinely in love with this head. I do wish there were more options for animations but other than that I have no complaints. I did discover something last night, the eyes that come with the head are system eyes and simply require an alpha, I’ve gotten so use to mesh eyes it didn’t dawn on me. So I alphaed my eyes out, added my Catwa unrigged eyes and voila now I can wear any Catwa eye applier I want! I chose a stunning set of eyes from LOTUS and yes they are in PocketGacha this month.

Whatever It Takes

It doesn’t happen often but when it does it leaves me with a conundrum. I have two blog posts to share at the same time and it was really hard to decide which one to do first, so I followed the simple rule of FIFO: First In, First Out. I have a more artistic peace to share with you today, an action shot so there is a bit of editing, mostly the snow. I hope you enjoy this post, please feel free to leave me comments.

When I first saw this fabulous outfit from Riot I started thinking how I could share it, it’s winter time and Christmas and this outfit didn’t exactly scream Yuletide to me. I love it though and so I really wanted to share it. What else happened at Christmas time I wondered and then I thought of Die Hard. Yeah, not your typical Christmas movie but there it is. I used the scene I had created for Winter Wonderland and credits for the decor can be found on that blog. With Die Hard in mind, I set back to The Arcade to grab one of these amazing snowmobiles from Consignment.

The Riot gacha includes 30 items in total, 6 rares and include both male and female sizes. You can play for Maitreya, Belleza Freya and Jake, Slink Physique, Hourglass and Male, and Signature Gianni. How many times do you get that option?

The Consignment gacha includes 15 commons and 2 rares to play for.

I started out looking through my folder of hair to figure out one that completed my look and wasn’t really happy with any of them. I started scouring Seraphim.com and found this one at Tannenbaum. Adoness has long been one of my favorite stores for eclectic and punk styles. She also now makes her hairbases for Catwa, Lelutka, and LOGO. The LOGO appliers are Omega based so they do work on the LAQ heads, which just tickled me pink because I love Adoness’ hairbases. You have until Christmas day to get on over to Tannenbaum and get this and so many more amazing items.

Mermaid Tales

mermaid tails done2048.png

The Ocean is her home,

But she wishes to venture places Unknown,

Above her world, The Surface world

Bottom feeders have left her post modem bored,

She is convinced to Pursue “New”,

Can you blame her for chasing Waterfalls,

Instead of sticking to the rivers that she is use to,

She fiends to be Free,

From the shackles of conformity
