#SecondLifeChallenge – Winter in Second Life

#SecondLifeChallenge – Winter in Second Life

This week’s #SecondLifeChallenge will be the final one for this year since the holidays are approaching and I’m sure we’ll all be very busy. I hope to pick up the challenges again in the new year.

Here are the instructions for the #SecondLifeChallenge this week: Share a picture or video of a winter scene in Second Life. Tell us a bit about the location and/or what you are wearing. Don’t forget to leave a link to your post in the comments! 

You don’t have to take a picture of your avatar for this, you can just do a landscape picture of your favorite winter sim and tell us a bit about it. I am hoping this challenge will get us to share some beautiful wintery locations in SL as well as some pretty winter clothing.

I have to admit, it took me a while to find a winter coat, which was a new release, that I liked enough to blog, other than the one I blogged yesterday. I was about to give up on this challenge or just do a scenic landscape image until I decided to check out PocketGacha this month and I fell in love with this ensemble from Belle Epoque. I feel so luxurious wearing it.

I decided to shoot on the Oh Deer sim again, I recently used it for another post, because I feel it’s so beautifully done and the upscale shopping area went well with my look. I also love the fact that they let you rez on the sim for a short period of time, which was just enough for a picture and video, so I rezzed the glitter tree beside me available from Mesh India, also from PocketGacha.

I’ve done a detailed video and post about PocketGacha when they first started a few months ago but I’ve also given some details about it again in today’s video. Check it out on YouTube:

You don’t have to have a blog to do this challenge, you can do it on any social media platform or vlog on youtube. Just don’t forget to tag your post with #SecondLifeChallenge and then leave the link to your post in the comments of this post.

Please remember there is no time limit to do this challenge, you can participate in any #SecondLifeChallenge 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’ve also started a #SecondLifeChallenge playlist on my YouTube channel.

  1. Hi Berry :) Here is my ‘Winter in SL’ video – don’t let the fact I published it yesterday distract you from its inclusion in your challenge! What’s a small temporal misalignment amongst friends?!

    Great post Berry :)

    Here is a link to my winter themed sim, Lakeside :))


    Wishing everyone a happy holidays and a wonderful new year :) xx

  3. Here’s mine, taken in New Babbage. It looks just like one of those Dickensian-style Christmas cards.

  4. […] Dec: The very excellent Strawberry Singh today issued one of her popular Second Life challenges to make a picture or video featuring winter in SL. Okay, so my post predates this challenge by a day, but we don’t want to quibble over details […]

  5. I am wearing the TWI bigger wolf with my own fur combo. Curled up in the snowstorm at my store.

  8. Snapped & Blogged this on the 16th but I thought it suited this challenge perfectly


  9. Hiya Berry. Great topic for a challenge. For the past month I’ve been getting so into the season that I now have a growing collection of images depicting winter in Second Life. There has been a dizzying number of events and sales and whatnot which feature winter themed items and my photos focus more on collections of those items. All but two of these are scenes I built myself on my platform. Each photo has a link to credits.


  10. Wow Strawberry I’m so honoured you picked Oh Deer for your challenge. I’m so happy you like it. Thank you so much!! xoxo

  11. What a fun challenge! I visited Inspired Winter Resort from the SL Destination Guide. This video is my first entry into the challenge and hope to play along with many more. There are some wonderful entries so far on this one.

  12. I expect to see Yuri driving up in a troika-harnessed sleigh, shouting either “Lara!” or “Tonya!” (depending on who you’d rather play). Can’t you just hear the balalaikas in the background?

  13. This series of pictures was taken at
    Groenland Kangamiut @ Pryde in Second Life. The sim has some trappings of SLivilization, but the winter woods are the most stunning feature in my mind. Perfect for picture taking!

  14. deciduous winter

    Shooting location…de*cid*u*ous


  15. Here is my little attempt which I hope will fit in with winter. I had the honour of being one of the readers at the Dickens”Project- A Christmas Carol and got inspired!

  16. This is my favourite winter sim this year. I’ve been out there several times and each time I find a new part to explore.

    Thank you Strawberry Singh for this challenge, it kick started me into doing my winter video which I have been thinking about for ages!

  18. Some great places you guys mentioned but my favourite winter destination is Calas Galadhon. Read about it here:- https://www.flickr.com/photos/pulpfictionstudio/27593340339/in/dateposted/
