I’m a Candy Girl in a Candy World!

a sweet idea (click here for RAW SHOT or ANIMATED GIF)

Candy Fair started on October 3rd so I’m a little late to the party however I really loved these little props from Plethora that I wanted to blog them. Candy Fair runs till October 17th so you still have 3 more days to drop by if you haven’t done so as of yet, so take the SLurl now.

There are 4 really adorable items released from Plethora, I’m featuring two of them here. The “sweet ideas” prop is one of my favorites. There are 8 different ideas that you just wear and then when you type the special keyword in chat, an idea bubble pops up with the picture of the item in it. It’s so adorably different, I love it! I did an animated gif at this link where you can see I’m typing lollipop into chat and then my idea bubble pops up.

The bubblegum in my mouth inflates and pops with sound effects every 10 seconds. It comes in 7 colors and is only L$50 each!

Candy Girl

I also have an announcement about SL GO. I’ve blogged about SL GO a few times before, it is the first Second Life mobile app viewer that enables you to experience Second Life on an Android device over a 4G/LTE or wireless connection. Well today, they have just announced the release of SL GO for iOS so you can experience Second Life on your iPad tablets.

I’m an android girl and don’t have an iPad so I didn’t get to try the app myself, but you can check out Draxtor’s hilarious video below to see his experience using it:

As you can see, it works really well, just like the android version. To get started with SL Go for iOS, users can sign up for an OnLive account and choose from one of two payment plans: $9.95 (£6.95) per month for unlimited access, or pay as you go for $1.00 (£0.70) per hour. A free 7-day trial is available for monthly subscribers.

iPad users can download the free OnLive SL Go app from the iTunes Store. More information on the OnLive Game Service and SL Go can be found at: games.onlive.com/landing/slgo
