The lovely Vanessa Blaylock has started a new challenge called Avatar in a Box! She was inspired by Hugh Kretschmer‘s 2006 art/fashion piece Special Delivery where he lovingly assembled outfits and body parts in a box, which you can see in her post.
I didn’t really want to cut up my avatar in pieces like that. I can be morbid but even that was a bit too morbid for me, lol. So I thought I’d go with something a bit cutesy like taking a nap with my kitten and a few essentials.
UPDATE: If you do decide to do this challenge, Vanessa has created a flickr group for all her challenges, feel free to share your images in the group!
I’m adding this post to my Challenges category. That’s the category I use when I do a challenge introduced by other people. I’m hoping in the new year I can add more to this category, it’s kind of fun and inspiring working on ideas other people have come up with. I’m also hoping to start up my own Monday Memes again and those you will find in my Blog Challenges category. Those will probably be in the new year as well, at least I hope!
I am wearing the Maitreya Mesh Body in this post so I actually decided not to process the image at all, since the body looked perfect and the clothes fit well over the body using the alpha hud. I am also wearing the SLink hands and feet with the body in this picture. I’ve noticed that with the slink high feet (or any high feet), in many poses (like this one) my ankles look broken like in the following image. Luckily, Siddean has an easy fix for that. She has an ankle lock for FREE right above her women’s high feet in the SLink mainstore. It’s just a simple attachment that I wear all the time now and my feet never look broken anymore. So if you haven’t had a chance to pick it up yet, I highly encourage it! In case you can’t find it at the SLink store, Sasy Scarborough has something similar, but it’s a HUD, in her marketplace store for L$95.
I hope you guys are able to participate in the Avatar in a box challenge as well. I bet you can think of all kinds of crazy ways to fit your avatar in a box and possibly even bring along your own goofy essentials. :P
Have a great weekend! <3

I’m very rarely a redhead, only because I feel as if I can’t really pull it off. Although I do admit, when I first started SL, I was a redhead for the first couple of months. I guess I initially chose that color because I’ve always found redheads to be so incredibly beautiful. So when […] Continue reading →
May 9th is my 7th Rezday. 7 years ago today I stumbled upon the virtual world of Second Life, created an account and logged in. I was lost and didn’t quite understand what I was doing so I logged out and didn’t think about it again until a week later. I’m glad I returned and […] Continue reading →
Yeah okay so you got me. I have already blogged a semi normal response to Berry’s current Monday Meme, the “Dance in Second Life Challenge” over on my own blog. And its extremely rare I do any of her memes, let alone twice. However, I also remembered that she has a bit of a ladyboner for Redfoo. […] Continue reading →
This post is going to be a totally indulgent circlejerk, I give you all prior warning. Plus I’ll probably get caned by Berry for using that term on her blog. I’m really looking forward to seeing where we get linked, and how perverted the search terms will be that come up in the site stats. […] Continue reading →
(click here for a raw shot) Even though it’s Wednesday where I live now, it’s still Tuesday in SL time so technically, I can still do this post. Right? Right! I really wanted to do the topless tuesday challenge again so I thought this would be a great time to talk about White Widow tattoos. […] Continue reading →
Today I’m blogging a challenge that someone else has started. Whenever I blog a challenge that someone else starts, I always add it to my ‘challenges category‘ I try and do challenges by others as often as I can. I find them fun to do and I appreciate all the people that take time to […] Continue reading →
I was going to blog this serpent on Thursday, August 8th because that’s when it will be released, at Collabor88, however I decided to blog them today because I wanted to do the Topless Tuesday challenge by Uccello Poultry. Every Tuesday Uccello shares a topless picture on her blog, sl feeds and flickr group and […] Continue reading →
(click here for a raw shot) Hi, my name is Strawberry Singh and I’m an Avatar Blogger. This past month of June I’ve been doing the 30 posts in 30 days Avatar Blogger Challenge. I didn’t quite make all 30 posts though, I completed 26 posts because of some RL commitments that kept me busy. […] Continue reading →
Yesterday I had the pleasure of getting together with a few of the bloggers that are blogging up a storm this month (like myself) for the Avatar Blogger Crossfit Month. There are about 2 dozen avatar bloggers participating and Vaneeesa Blaylock was trying to get a hold of as many of us as possible for […] Continue reading →
I feel like I really failed at this week’s SL DisneyBound challenge because I had all these ideas and I was going to use ManBerry and was going to dress him up as Aladdin, etc… but I’m currently going through a number of projects at the moment that I just haven’t had time. In fact, […] Continue reading →
(raw shot) The talented Natalee Oodles of Style Minions has been holding an ongoing blogger challenge for about 6 weeks now called Disneybound. You can learn more about the challenge from her first initial post introducing it. Every week I have been watching in awe as so many have been styling themselves up resembling Disney […] Continue reading →
We’re so busy chasing our goals, we don’t even notice life passing us by in a blur. (click here for a raw shot) I’ve been meaning to participate in the Single Frame Stories challenge for a while, but I guess I felt a bit intimidated. My pictures aren’t usually planned, they just kind of happen, […] Continue reading →
I couldn’t help doing a black white picture after I got this gorgeous set from Epoque. I thought the chrome texture in this was especially fabulous and I’m glad I got the opportunity to blog it. Epoque has a great selection in hair, mesh clothing and also gorgeous statement jewels. If you haven’t checked them […] Continue reading →
Please excuse my title today, it has nothing to do with the book but I thought it fit the theme well. Anyhow, recently I did an ad for a skin designer and I liked how it turned out so I wanted to play with it a bit more and try my hand at the black […] Continue reading →
I saw a few bloggers doing this and I wanted to play along. The gorgeous Maci Restless has started a black and white blogger challenge which you can read about on her blog. She also created a flickr group where you can add your pictures if you do it. I thought I would make this […] Continue reading →
When I heard about Harper Ganesvoort’s blog challenge, “fictional characters from your favorite books” in my heart I knew right away that I had to find a way to portray Jane Austen’s Emma. Most people know that I am a huge Jane Austen fan and Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite books. However, […] Continue reading →
