Dancing in Second Life 2016 Challenge!

Dancing in Second Life 2016 Challenge!

Back in 2014 I did a Dancing in Second Life challenge for one of my Monday Memes. Today I decided to bring it back since I’m trying to get more Second Life residents on Youtube. Last year I asked that you share an image or a video of yourself dancing in Second Life and answer a series of questions. This year, I am not going to be asking any questions, however if you would like to answer the questions from last time, you can grab them from this link.

Meme Instructions: Share a photo and/or video of your avatar dancing in Second Life. Don’t forget to leave a link to your post in the comments and share your pictures in the Blog Memes Flickr Group. UPDATE: Please remember to add the words “Second Life” in your tags or description on youtube so it comes up when people search for Second Life related content on youtube.

Here is my video on YouTube: https://youtu.be/6SjlPUMrErM

I encourage everyone to please try and do a video on YouTube because we really need some other kinds of Second Life videos there aside from trolling and people giving birth (not that there’s anything wrong with that :P).  I will try and add everyone’s dance videos to my Dancing in Second Life YouTube Playlist as I see them, thank you! <3

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.

Catwa Sarah Mesh Head

I have done two videos today, the second one is about the new Catwa Sarah Mesh head. Here is the video with some information about the head:

Video on YouTube: https://youtu.be/8sMhXtE91Wo

Information about the Catwa Sarah mesh head:

  • Price: This is a basic mesh head, unlike her previous premium heads, so the price is only L$900.
  • Add-ons: You can purchase several different add-ons to enhance this head at different prices. You can see a complete chart on Catwa’s flickr showing everything the premium and standard heads come with and the add-ons that can be purchased for them. CATWA HEADS CHART
  • DEMO: You can pick up a free DEMO in the Catwa marketplace store or the Catwa mainstore.
  • Appliers: For a list of designers making appliers for Catwa mesh heads, see the Catwa website.
  • Customer Service: If you have any difficulty with this product or have some customer service questions, I will not be much help so I suggest you contact the designer, Catwa Clip.

Dancing in Second Life 2016 Challenge!

I am really enjoying doing videos on YouTube lately. I feel like I can explain things better and it’s fun to try something a bit different for blogging. If you have any suggestions of what else you’d like to see me cover in any future videos, let me know in the comments. I hope you guys get a chance to participate in the challenge today!


  • If you are looking for music to use in your video that is not copyrighted, check out the Audio Library on YouTube.
  • If you are looking for screen capturing software to make your video, you can find a list in this plurk: https://www.plurk.com/p/ln0b3g. I use Camtasia myself.
  • Please make a note of Caitlin Tobias’ comment below and make sure you have permission to film and or take pictures on location in Second Life. I didn’t know about this rule myself, I will have to be careful and check the covenant of each sim next time I shoot images or video for the blog. If you are a sim owner, please consider adding in your sim’s convenant that you allow photography and machinima on your sim so we all know, thank you!

  1. I love this challenge and be assured I will be doing a video too, soon!
    Though, I do want to add – if you are filming in public places/clubs, there is a machinima policy, which is quite basic: if land information or convenant does not specifically mention filming is allowed, you need to get approval of the land owner first. (this doesn’t apply for pics, but for machinima it is different) See this: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Snapshot_and_machinima_policy

  2. Hi Caitlin, thank you so much for letting me know! I had no idea. I’ve shot on so many sims before without even checking. Will have to be careful in the future!

  3. Tumble Fall says:

    Hi Strawberry.. May I ask what your settings (size, stretch,length) are at in Appearance for the Sarah Head? its perfect!
    Thank You Tumble Fall

  4. Hi Tumble, I never change my shape for any of the mesh heads so these are the numbers I always wear with all mesh heads:
    Head Size: 58
    Head Stretch: 38
    Head Length: 45

  5. Tumble Fall says:

    Thank You!!

  6. seicher rae says:

    I have to say, the rules are odd. I wonder why there is a difference between still pictures and machinama? Wouldn’t you think it would be the same? In other words, it is ok if the covenant says “Yes” or simply doesn’t address it and “no” means no? Weird. Thanks for pointing this out because, yeah, I would have figured they were both the same.

  7. Real Burger says:

    Hello Strawberry, we made a dancing video my partner Staliah Resident and me while visiting a sim last year. It would be a pleasure for us if you think it can be shared on your blog: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EnOD3d2wBc0

  8. Haha I’m always doing silly things with dances on SL :D

    And here are a few with a dance group (Vanity DameZ) that my avatar is a part of:

  9. I love dancing in SL, it gives me a freedom that I am now denied in RL.

    I’ve been a professional Dancer in SL for the last few years. When Chry posted about this this morning local time I just couldn’t resist doing a short video for you. I do try and film what I consider my better acts although that doesn’t always happen at the time I make or perform them. Thank you for this challenge :-)

  15. Chewie Quixote says:

    Helps if I add the link :/


  16. Here’s mine! I made it a little while ago but it fits and I love it.

  17. woo hoo! such a cool meme idea Berry :) My plan is to do a new dance video once I get a good machinima app installed but I wanted to share this crude little video I made SIX omg 6 years ago at my home in Klein (up the hill from Alpha Auer’s old store).

    I hope you get a kick out of how we all looked back then in our noob days haha

  18. Thank you all for sharing! I will continue to add the dancing videos to my playlist here as you guys share them:

  19. […] it’s 2016, and Berry has made another dancing challenge. I have a new partner and she is lovely. Here we are dancing on […]

  20. I enjoyed this challenge as much as the first one you made it. Bit different this time as I changed partner :)

  21. Krysta Ember says:

    Better late than never and it is my very first SL Video, be kind!

  22. I tried to take this seriously – honest I did! But these darn otters … well, you know how otters are. Big sloppy otter kisses to you all, Bay.

  23. Kerena Zhangsun says:

    Ok… challenge accepted! This was filmed at Calas Galadhon Park before a captive audience…of cats and swans ;)


  24. […] for a really fun challenge, Strawberry […]

  25. I like to log in just to watch my avvies dance around the house sometimes, so this was a lot of fun. :D http://chaoticvirtuality.com/2016/04/05/challenged-to-dance/

  27. Hi, Strawberry! Long-time fan of your work. Here’s a video I did for the holidays of me dancing in my Reindeer Games outfit:

  30. TOTAL NEWB at Video Capture but I did it!! You can check it out here — https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ooiDtdH1gNk

  31. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to participate in this Monday’s meme but loved catching up on all the videos. Too many favourites to mention but loved the otters dancing as a couple.

    I was also wondering whether you ever did a follow up on the ‘My three wishes’ of a few years ago as another one of my wishes has just come true with the announcement about lower tier fees!! Yayyyyy! It might be good to revisit them to see how far we’ve come. Just a thought…

  44. Winter Jefferson says:

    https://youtu.be/FaMiDyVU0uE Presented with due apology.

  45. This was a CHALLENGE!! This is the first time I’ve tried to make a video and it took me all week to do it…lol. Looking forward to attempting it again.

  46. Don’t have the sort of machine that is video-worthy, but the dance floor and I be friends:


  47. A big thank you to everyone that took the time to participate in this meme. It was great fun watching all of your dancing videos. Please continue to make videos on youtube so we can add better quality Second Life content on there. If you make any more dance videos, feel free to leave the link in the comments here and I will add them to my Dance in Second Life playlist:

    Thanks again for participating! I have my new meme up now:

  48. This was a cute challenge! I should probably upload some of the videos I have recorded for some blogposts on youtube. Dancing on SL is fun! As always, such a great idea Strawberry :)

  49. Here’s mine, I literally killed my graphic card, but had so much fun doing it :D


  50. And here’s me, coming up in the rear – couldn’t get a video, but I did snag a shot! :D


  51. This is old but I still like it :)

  52. Shaterica Wulluf says:

    After taking forever I finally did it https://youtu.be/dgqhdNGP40Q

  53. Kitty Pashinin says:

    Can someone recommend the best free software to use for recording video in SL?

  54. Kitty Pashinin says:

    Playing around with different moods. I love this idea of the dancing challenge. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0SibNL9yGqc&feature=youtu.be

  55. Kestrel Keiroz says:

    Bit late, but heres our dance video! :)

  56. Youtube totally blocked the music on my video so I removed it. But here’s my blog post :)


  57. Valerie Rainfall says:

    i’m sharing this for my sister Lexi Denver… she recently did this dance video and it’s awesome! she has posted another video so i wanted to post this one on her behalf. ENJOY!! <3

  58. jackson redstar says:

    Wish I’d seen strawberry’s post earlier. But oh well. this is a dance i did a little a ago using the Liquid Felon dance animations. Had to load to viemo b/c copyright restriction with this music on youtube

  59. Meu primeiro video! Adorei a ideia, sou fã de animações no Second Life!

  60. Pepa Cometa says:

    This dance was my first machinima and that’s why it means something special for me. :)

  61. […] get better with practice! I wanted to have my own contribution to Strawberry Singh‘s awesome Dancing In Second Life Challenge so I hope you enjoy my weird tribal-contemporary […]

  62. Well I came late to party here, but this is an example of what we do as dance performers.

  63. Why in God’s name are you dancing with avatars??? Go out and Dance in Real Life. That’s what is wrong with you people that play that stupid game, you do to because your real lives are lacking. Go live real life!

  64. Thank you for the suggestions Tomas! I do dance in real life, quite often. Yoga and dancing are two of my favorite forms of exercising.

    I do want to point out though that just because we’re dancing in Second Life, doesn’t mean we’re not doing it in the real world.

    Also, please remember that there are many people that are disabled and/or too ill to be able to dance in real life. Second Life gives them the opportunity to be able to feel free enough to do whatever their heart desires, even if they are not able to do it physically in the real world. Please take 5 minutes to watch this video about a resident that has Parkinson’s and what Second Life has done for her: https://youtu.be/nyiiWxNguGo

    I hope this information gives you a new way to look at Second Life and what it can do for people.
