Belly Dancing in Second Life

BellyDance

Recently I went back in my youtube video stream and I was more than a little embarrassed to see the first video I uploaded to youtube. It was a belly dancing video I uploaded back in 2008, I’m embedding it at the end of this post.

So I thought I’d try and redeem myself by doing a 2016 version of a belly dancing video. After doing the 2016 version, I realized the 2008 version is not that bad. My avatar is not THAT bad for 2008 and the belly dance animations from Animazoo are still some of my favorites, just the graphics and my poor recording is what still makes me cringe the most.

In the 2016 version, I used belly dance animations from Abranimations. They have a HUGE selection of belly dancing animations, in various styles. The music I used in this video was just something I found on the YouTube library because I wanted to use something that wouldn’t have any copyright issues. I’m actually not 100% sure it’s a song meant for belly dancing, but I just thought, close enough, lol!

Belly Dancing in Second Life

Here are both versions! Once again, the dance animations I’m using in the 2016 version are from Abranimations and the dance animations from the 2008 version are from Animazoo.

I have to admit, I really enjoy making dancing videos in Second Life. They are just so much fun and trying to use my 3D mouse to zoom around my avatar to get different angles has been a CHALLENGE but so much fun to figure out. So just warning you guys, expect more dance videos to pop up at least once a month!

Off topic but I hope all of you are safe with your family and loved ones. There’s been two horrific events the past couple of days in Turkey and now in Bangladesh, and I’m so distraught and heartbroken over the state of the world these days. I pray all of you are ok, sending you much love. <3

Heart Song

Since I haven’t been able to do a Friday Find in a few weeks, I decided to take some time this morning to explore Harlow Heslops’s new scenic sim, Heart Song.

My SL Guilty Confessions Meme

I think we all do things in our lives that we’re not incredibly proud of, but we still do them out of habit or just because it’s something we feel strongly about and don’t necessarily always want everyone to know about them. One of my real life guilty confessions is my obsessive love for Golden […] Continue reading →
