Meme instructions: Share your answers to the following suggestions. Don’t forget to link your post in the comments.

Two online screen names you’ve had: Well, gosh. I’m not that old to have a bunch. Darlingmonster Ember and EyeofSerpent are names I’ve used.

Two video games you’ve played: Rifts and Star Wars: the Old Republic

Two things you love about Second Life: Taking pictures and touring the pictures of other Second Life avatars.

Two things you’ve done in Second Life: I’ve done the Poppins Challenge and won a few keen racing events.

Two things you still want to do in Second Life: I want to build an undersea house and I also want to build an unseelie fae vehicle that is steampunk creepy.

Two things you like about your Second Life avatar: I like my ears are so distinctive and I like that I can flip skins for a mood or an event statement!

Two of your Second Life Pet Peeves: Scripting is so darn complex and no tutorials for low impact mesh building.

Two things you did as a newb that you’re embarrassed of: I’m not really that embarrassed, but early on before I discovered the nice mannered folks of Caledon, I used to hang out in sandbox sims. And that’s where I found out about cages, prim penis assaults, and folks who would seek out new avatars to humiliate us. The whole “just log off” solution never occurred to me in those days. Duh. Second most embarrassing habit was gobbling up all the free outfits I could find without regard for whether they looked nice or not.

Two of your closest friends in Second Life: Solace Fairlady and Autopilot Patty

Two of the most beloved things in your inventory: The shop I built in Caledon and my quad-ears. Chicks dig the ears.

Berry’s First and Recent Challenge meme

Meme instructions: Share a side by side comparison of your first blog picture beside a recent picture of your avatar. Don’t forget to share the link to your image in the comments and add your pictures to the Blog Memes flickr group.

I believe this meme idea was given to me by Ms. Trixie Cliassi last year. The idea was to share a comparison of your first blog post to your most recent or new one. I’ve just taken a new snapshot similar to the old one of what my avatar looks like today. She also asked us to share our thoughts on how we feel we’ve improved as photographers or bloggers.

If you don’t have your first blog picture available or prefer to use a different newbie picture, feel free to do so. The point of this post is to talk about how much we’ve changed and grown since the newbie days. I haven’t processed the 2015 picture since the 2007 one was not processed in photoshop, I figured I’d let them both be raw shots.

As Berry did, my shots are raw and untouched except to frame them up for the meme.

SL first and recent

This is me on my house in 2008 (omg, I loved purple hair) and me at the same house 2015, you can see an improved world behind me (particle clouds vs windlight), amazing changes in the things I can wear, and some slight changes in me as well (notice the long ears are still long.)

Same house, rebuilt a few times, same parcel, same wonderful Caledon in background. Same wrought iron railings.

The skin in 2008 was the brand new Nova Chai beta. The skin in 2015 is Chiokka from Plastik.

But the meme is also, what are the important changes?

My first blog post was really to setup for the role play I’d been invited to join in steampunk Caledon. I’d been in Caledon for two years before anyone really asked me to RP. The strange part was I got the invite because a young lady thought my avatar was likely a wicked demon or villainess—and a small group were at a point in story were they needed a wicked priestess to arrive for a questionable ceremony.

It was fun, but once the folks were not in SL, the RP functions of the blog went low key.

The really strange part was, I joined SL to do roleplay. But found that RP really was not all that widespread. It is a much more social place than a gaming place. Most folks think RP is hard or tricky to do, but really it is just alt-social.

Fun meme!
