Something importand to discuss.

Hello all. This is going to be a diffrent kinda post. Yesterday, I receved a notification that Sara's Pony island one of the places I hang at alot as well as the home of Vexation, is in trouble. Recently, Linden Labs, the people that run SL, decided to increase the price of the Openspace islands http://blog.secondlife.com/2008/10/27/openspace-pricing-and-policy-changes/ The increase, according to LL, is due to users using them for things other then light use. But instead of going after the violaters, LL is chosing to raise the prices instead. This is forcing Sarah to close 3 of her islands outright, since she can no longer afford to run them, with others possibly following. This is a complete shame, and honestly a bit low of LL to do. And Sarah isn't the only one to be affected by the price change. Another friend of mine is similarly effected, the price increase making it to much to have her island anymore. Now, I normally don't get involved in these kinda issues. But loosing Sarah's is something I need to speak up about. Sarah is a wonderful person, one who helps bring alot of kinky fun to SL. Her island runs the gambit from Pony play, to puppy play, to bondage, to auctions and hunts (her island is where I did the fox hunt from a while back). It's also where my friend Honoko the dollmaker has her home, and the location of Vexation.

So, as a friend of Sarah's Island, I decided to do a post about all this. Overall, I think the fact that LL didn't give any heads up, warning violaters to back off on "heavy use" and instead chose to increase prices outright it pretty crappy customer service on their part. So, I'm asking everyone who reads my blog to do something. Go to this link, http://jira.secondlife.com/browse/MISC-1776, and to vote against the price increase. LL could do this in a much better manner then they have, and honetly, they need to learn that squeezing island owners out of SL only hurts them in the end. Thank you all for your time. The next post will be back to my usual kinky self, I promice. I jsut needed to get this off my chest.

Things that go bump in the night

It's getting close to my favorite time of the year, Halloween. So I figured it would be a good time to show a few of the spookier AVs I have.

First up is a brand new one I got from Curio Obscura. This is there Ghost Girl AV and man is it impressive. The entire thing is see through like a ghost should be. Plus the skirt and hair flap in the wind. You get three skirt lengths with it and two hair styles.

Next is one that I love, Medusa. Heck, any creature that can turn people into statues scores big for me ;) This one is from Grendel's Children. It has a serpent tail for legs. Ability to stone other people not included unfortunently ;)

Next are a series of 4 from Grendel's, the Succubi. These are all based on the traditional 4 elemints and look really well done. First is the earth succubi.

Magma is next. Love the flame effects on the staff.

Ice gives new meaning the the phrase "cold-hearted"

Finally, smoke for the fourth element, air. This one is really cool because you have a constant haze of smoke arrount you while wearing it.

Heh, these four also fit fight in to the theme of my blog. Succubi are after all sex demons ;) More posts soon, inclusign som pictures from the Miss Dolliverse padgent and a few more Restrained Life toys.

Maid to order

So, the other day I stopped back by Doll Islandf to hang out ant view all the lovly plastic dolls (There's a rather nasty strain of Barbie virus going through the island right now. The side effect is the infected become cute, plastic and ditzy). When I got there, I found out I won a contest they had held, to take a picture of the Doll Queen. (Apparently I was the only one to enter, hehehe). First prize was an updated RLV version of the Bizarre Maid outfit from Rei Gynoid.

Delighted, I put the outfir on without thinking. Buy weas that a bit of a mistake. I was promptly locked in it. Should have really seen that coming. Well, I quickly found out what this suit can do. I was muted, only able to speak on an alternate channel. And when I did it came across as the Maid, instead of me. And I had my inventory locked away and was denyed teleporting. Goes without saying I was a bit shocked, and a wee bit thrilled by all this. Fortuenntly, (or unfortuently depending how you look at it) I managed to beg my way out and got the suit unlocked.
A few days later, I saw Rei was on and I told her I had won the suit. We went and hung out a while. Then all the sudden I found myself sealed in the suit again. I had forgotten I put it in my #RLV foulder. For those that don't know, the #RLV foulder is a special one. If your wearign a relay, (which I almost always do now a days) others can access this foulder and force you to wear whats in it. I usually put most my RLV stuff in there, like my collar, cuffs, and gag. Well, she sealed me in the suit again, and slowly started to take away my abilities, like chat, inventory, TPing, even IMs. She said I had one chance to convince her to let me go or be sealed like that til the next time I saw her. The only good argument I had was the fact I model at KK, and I need to be able to pose in their clothes. That seemed to work and Rei let me go, with a warning she may keep me next time. Heh, part of me thinks she's kidding, but who knows ;) The moral of this story is I guess think before you put on a RLV item in the middle of a bunch or peope who know what it does better then you.
