Fathom, going .....going.....

The Lindens have decided on a price hike for the tier due on open space sims or voids. Not a small one. A 66% one.
Add to that the falling Australian dollar...

It seems my times in Fathom are over. The times of friendship spent sitting on my steps, at pavilion playing en garde, fishing off the docks... over.

The Lindens give their reasons.

They say people have abused the voids/open spaces. There were no warnings.
There were no discussions. I can not believe their reasons nor their methods.
Winterfell is a work of art in my opinion.

A piece of public art. Worked on by a group of people with nothing more to go on than the covenant given to us by Miss Serra.

I cant imagine how she must be feeling seeing this magnificent set of sims on the verge of being dismantled.

What more can I say but good bye Fathom. I loved you.

Mid afternoon.
A day of tax returns in real life. I was chatting to Roy Smashcan about it. I hear the rest of the world does their tax in a Jan/Dec year. Here in Ozz, it is July/June. I guess because we are all at the beach in January, not filling in forms. Roy was flying through Fathom as part of the Pumpkin hunt.

There are all sorts of Halloween activities at the moment and one on tomorrow is Bardhaven's Ball. I am not sure that I will be going, but Eleanor and I had fun this afternoon trying on frocks and hair in case we go :).
I flew through a few of the regular haunts first and then we met at DG gowns. I tried on a few of my DG gowns which are just so gorgeous but ended up in this dress by Martini Discovolante.
We played with hair and skins.

Eleanor, super consumer has an enviable inventory. When she stands beside me, I feel a mere shadow :) Her skin is just so beautiful. I have tried on skins by the same maker... and it just isn't me, so i am stuck as I am.
But back at Fathom, I changed to a DG gown, recoloured my hair and figured life is good.
How nice to be so shallow on occasion after so much deep and meaningful.

Dress ups

It's been a while since I indulged in some dress up and photograph blog sessions.
It started when Silent Sparrow had a Halloween Competition. I thought maybe?
I went to the Nameless Isle and put on my Sparrow and Calico.

But my look isn't Halloween. So I haven't entered any, but though I would pop them here as the ones down the side bar are really getting a bit dated, aren't they?

I love it when the little bell of the IM tingles and I am off on an unexpected adventure. Tonight Grandma Bates wanted to know if I would try on her steampunk face light.

I was visiting Eleanor at the time and I knew that Grandma Bates would be welcome so I teleported her in.

Let's just say... the face light were much better than I expected!
Probably the best lit faces in SL were seen in Winterfell Harbour tonight. El and I posed for Grandma as she took photos. She is going to put them up as freebies on SLexchange.

What a hoot!

Eleanor even took hers into the water and she says it is great for underwater discovery.

I love SL!!

Punkin House

I can see that a few of you have persisted visiting this blog despite a rather notable lack of activity.
Things got a bit grim and then a bit heavy and then a bit grim there for a bit. I began writing a blog entry on the nature of things. Something meaningful. A story of friendships made and lost. However it is too hard. And taking too long. And so for now I give up and will post something light and cheery.
I have a listing on SLExchange! My first!
is the listing. As I get better at this I will get more up there.
The item is a pumpkin shaped house. I have to just say, it is cute to bits. The jack-o-lantern wall feature is worth it alone in my not so humble opinion, the smoking stalk with twisting vine... the sitting animations in pumpkin shaped cushions. All adds up to cute!!
Star Fairymeadows has given me a better punkin texture and I have put one of my quilts on the bed, so anyone who wants to buy one in world will get the new and improved version.
