Are you a skybox hermit? I can be at times, but I also like exploring the grid. I like scouting locations for shoots or just exploring the creativity of Second Life content creators. However, I can also be quite anti-social and just want to keep to myself, dress up my doll and take pictures of her in amusing ways, like today. That’s when the skybox comes in very handy and I can escape for some peace and quiet. My real life is pretty noisy and insane most of the time, so escaping to the peacefulness of my skybox is a refreshing change.
But what if you don’t want to go to jail for being a skybox hermit? Here are some places you can check out for locations to explore in Second Life:
- Explore Second Life Flickr Group – Where thousands of residents share images of different Second Life locations, with SLurls to the locations in the descriptions.
- Honour McMillan’s Blog and Ziki Questi’s Blog – Two of my most favorite Second Life Travel Bloggers.
- SeraphimSL – Maybe you want to update your avatar and go shopping? There is ALWAYS some sort of fashion shopping event going on and Seraphim has all the scoop!
- The Second Life Destination Guide – “The chosen ones” by Linden Lab. A list of places (neatly categorized ) that the Lindens think you should visit!
That should keep you out of SL jail for a while. The mugshot prop I’m using in this image is from Intrigue Co. currently available at The Arcade Gacha events. You only have a few more days to shop at the Arcade. It closes on July 1st and since it has been open a month now, this would be a great time to go and shop lag free.
The jacket I’m wearing is from Cold Ash currently available at Uber. Please keep in mind that this is a MENS jacket, I just liked the way it looked on my female avatar. It looks big and it has no boobs, but I do like the way it falls on me. If you are looking to get it for your female avatar as well, please make sure to try the DEMO first.

This week’s meme idea was given to me by none other than the infamous Mr. Draxtor Despres.

You can check out the #FirstLifeProblems and #FirstWorldProblems hashtags on […] Continue reading →
