Late with this week’s Friday Find, but better late than never, right? 😛
Friday Find: Dalsgaard
To find today’s Friday Find, I once again looked at my Explore Second Life flickr group and this image caught my eye. I had never heard of Dalsgaard before and as soon as I landed there, I would say mesmerized is the correct word to describe my state. I felt like I could spend hours there, zooming in on each piece and admiring it for its beauty. In fact, I am pretty sure I stood in the middle of the sim for at least 2 hours while my camera explored every nook and cranny. I was amazed.
Since I had never heard of this sim or artist, Mistero Hifeng, my curiosity got the better of me and I started googling. That’s when I found this detailed post by Honour McMillan discussing the sim, the artist and a thought provoking piece on gender in Second Life. Very interesting indeed.

UPDATE: When I wrote this post I didn’t know that Mr. Hifeng was granted an LEA sim to share more of his work. Inara Pey has done an excellent job of covering it. Click over and read and visit the sim to see more of his work.

One of my most favorite shots of hers is Binary, the styling, editing, post processing, everything on this image is just perfection. Make sure to check out her whole stream!

- The Random New Year’s Resolution Generator – People are still talking about New Years resolutions and I saw someone pass this website around and I thought, why not, let’s see what this one has to say for me. Of course I chose hobbies because this resolution is supposed to be for my Second Life and this is what I got:
So if you’ll excuse me, I have some writing to do! 😛
- Buzzfeed Quiz of the week: What Book Do You Belong In? I love that I got my favorite book, but I’m not too sure I like the words that go along with it. Which book did you get?
Before I go, a big thank you to all of you that have participated in my Yearbook Challenge this week. Over 300 people have submitted their images in the Second Life Yearbook Flickr Group. It makes me so happy watching everyone having fun with this and it’s wonderful to see all of the creative avatars people create to express themselves in this virtual world. Thank you again and have a great weekend you guys! <3
