Dance in Second Life Challenge

Dance in Second Life Challenge

This week’s Monday Meme is going to be a photo and/or video challenge. I thought it would be fun to see what kinds of dance animations are your favorite in Second Life and where you like to buy them.

Meme Instructions: Share a photo and/or video of your avatar dancing in Second Life. Also answer the following questions and share your favorite dances and animation stores with us. Don’t forget to leave a link to your post in the comments and share your pictures in the Blog Memes Flickr Group.

(this is where I got the song in the video)

I used Camtasia to capture this video. If you’re looking for a screen capture software to make a video of your own, you’ll be able to find many options listed in this plurk. You can also just trying making a gif for a few seconds if you prefer. I tried using gyazo and it turned out a bit choppy. If you are unable to share a video, then try to see if you can just take a picture and answer the following questions.

  1. Which dance are you sharing in the image/video and where is it from? I thought it would be fun to try out one of the Latin dances from Henmations. So I logged ManBerry in and let him woo me.
  2. Which is your favorite dance in Second Life? – I think it’s still the bellydance one from Animazoo that I bought in 2008. There is a video of it at this link.
  3. What are your favorite dance animation stores in Second Life? – I don’t dance that often in Second Life anymore so most of the stores that I have animations from are very old, such as Sinewave and Animazoo. However, recently I went to Henmations, MyAnimation and Humanoid and they also had a nice selection.
  4. Are you a frequent dancer in Second Life? – I used to be. When I first joined SL, that’s pretty much all I would do, all day. I loved to bellydance as well as slow dance using the slow dance animations from Bits and Bobs. Those are still my favorite slow dances. I don’t dance very often anymore though. Whenever I do feel like dancing these days, I always end up at Gol or the old club I used to bellydance/host at, Habibi.
  5. Are you a frequent dancer in the real world? – I am. I tend to blast a lot of bollywood music and bounce around in my room. My friends also drag me to clubs/parties once in a while. I love dancing. I think it’s great exercise and it really helps me relax and release a lot of stress.

Please remember that you can participate in any of the memes/challenges at any time. You’ll find them all under my Blog Challenges category along with other memes and challenges I’ve done over the years.

I hope you guys are able to participate! <3

Arabian Nights

This is not the typical Friday Find that I usually do every week where I share an image of a location with you, but I will share a couple of locations/slurls that may be of interest. I took the first image at Illusions Arabian Marketplace. It’s a very pretty build with bold textures and I’ve […] Continue reading →

I Got Partnered!

So there I was just a few days ago, minding my own business and reading what the plurkers were up to on my timeline. When I noticed the biggest bratty troll on plurk, Mr. Ewan Mureaux (whom you can never really take seriously) had put up an application because he was looking for slove. Of […] Continue reading →

For you, my love is selfless…

I was listening to one of my favorite bollywood songs while working on this: mera ishq sufiyana which translates into “my love is selfless” and the rest of it is just as poetic, if not more. It’s an absolutely beautiful song. Today was the last day of school, so I’m off for the summer. However, […] Continue reading →
