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

Last month I released a standard second life shape directly to my marketplace store. The only reason I did that is because people kept asking about my shape and so I thought I would experiment and see what I could come up with. I didn’t expect to, but I sold quite a few of them. […] Continue reading →
Ever since the first time I blogged this serpent pose prop last year, at least once a week I get someone googling “serpent sex” and ending up on my blog. Is that really a thing? Or is it some weird sexual position? Do people actually do that? How though? Ok don’t tell me how, I […] Continue reading →

Recently Google announced that there are no more restrictions on what name you can use on Google+ therein allowing Second Life residents and others that use pseudonyms online to use the service under any name they please. I was extremely pleased to hear of this decision, but a little disheartened that Facebook doesn’t adapt a […] Continue reading →

This month’s theme for TLC (The Liaison Collaborative) is Dangerous Liaisons. I’m still wearing the thigh holster from Plethora that I blogged a few days ago. This time I added the gun and pose from the Femme Fatale set from Le Poppycock to add to the bad-ass look. I dunno though, I think my face […] Continue reading →
All that’s left is solitude and the desires in my heart. I won’t be around for most of June because I’m going away to places I’ve never been before. I’ve been a mix bag of emotions so far this year (or perhaps always?) and I wanted a change. So I’m travelling across the ocean to […] Continue reading →

(click here for a raw shot) Do you ever dream about Second Life? I don’t actually mean just Second Life itself, but the people you meet in it. I don’t dream often about it, but once in a while I may have a dream about a friend inworld or people on plurk or twitter. Recently […] Continue reading →
Today was International Women’s Day. Every year on March 8th women (and men) celebrate women’s economic, political, and social achievements and encourage respect, appreciation and love towards women worldwide. This day is about empowering and celebrating women. Days like these always make me wonder and I start all these comparisons between myself and women that […] Continue reading →
When I asked what you guys wanted to see more of in my poll the other day, a number of you responded with Manberry and his butt. I didn’t realize that Manberry was so popular! Therefore, you will be seeing a lot more of him, possibly along with Berry in various cutesy, romantic pictures because […] Continue reading →
