Simploring 2018 (99) Achill Island

I picked Achill Island from scoop.it SL Destinations for my simploring tour on Saturday, November 10th. Achill Island is owned by Ziggy Duster (zigmal) and Grace Sixpence. It’s their private homeplace. The design and landscape was done by Minnie Atlass.

Achill Island – overview

Achill Island in Second Life might be inspired by the island in the physical world which is the largest of the Irish isles, and is situated off the west coast of Ireland (read more in Wikipedia). For sure the landscape reminds of Ireland with it’s steep cliffs, the partly green rocks, the low vegetation, the many birds and the loneliness. Achill Island is open for visitors but the two houses on the island are private. Upon landing you get a notecard with the above information and you can join the island’s group for a small fee to get rezz rights if you need them for your pictures.

Impressions of Achill Island (2)

Achill Island is a place for taking pictures or to retreat and dream, to mediate, to inhale the nature, to enjoy the beauty of the environment. There’s not much else to see. Besides the two private houses, there’s a lighthouse, a bar on another very small island and a gazebo.

Impressions of Achill Island (3)

The beach offeres some places to sit and cuddle and there’re several other spots that you can use for this purpose. I was fascinated by the many lovely views, that Achill island is offering. I’ve been in Ireland in the physcial world and can confirm that Achill Island does provide the feeling of a visit into Ireland’s nature. The vegetation, the rocks, the few scattered trees and the structure of the shore do fit perfectly. I could literally smell the fresh Irish air. Achill Island is rural but develops a very particular charme.

Impressions of Achill Island (4)

I looked up pictures of Achill Island in the physical world and I saw some that looked like being taken in Second Life. The stone hut at the beach, that I named “birds beach”, does exist there in reality and it seems to be a point of interest for tourists. Hence it was Ziggy’s and Grace’s intention to bring at least this part into Second Life.

Thank you Ziggy and Grace for providing your home to the public. I enjoyed my visit a lot!

Diary 2018 (198) November 6th/7th slave kelly collared one year

Tuesday, November 6th, Mistress Jenny and Angelique teased me together in the afternoon. Mistress made some remarks and hinted about how she will train Angelique’s quite weak dominant side – and she has clearly in mind to involve me. I enjoyed looking at the two and made a few pictures.

November 6th: Mistress Jenny and Angelique / Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Psi’s realm

Angelique had to leave just when slave Flo came inworld. slave Flo seems to be a bit uncomfortable with the colouring of her gag suit and Mistress and I took the opportunity to point out that we could choose some quite shocking colours too and that she should be happy about the “racing” look. We took slave Flo to Psi’s and enjoyed the crowd there for a while, then our time in tha afternoon was already over again. We left slave Flo at Psi’s realm.

I was off most of Tuesday night and met Mistress Jenny shortly before midnight to catch up with her, but there’s nothing anymore to add for the diary for Tuesday.

November 6th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita with slave Flo at Psi’s realm / November 7th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita with slave kelly at Psi’s realm

When Mistress Jenny and I came inworld Wednesday, November 7th, in the afternoon, slave kelly was present. She had been off for RL vacation for 10 days and I had stored her in the isolation cell next to the decking. We went seeing her and I provided her a gag suit just like the one slave Flo was already wearing. We took slave kelly to Psi’s realm and chatted amoung us for a bit, then we left her there, just next to the place we left slave Flo the day before.

November 7th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita with slave Flo and slave Kelly at Psi’s realm

Wednesday night we first played skipee with Angelique and then went back to Psi’s realm, where both slave Flo and slave Kelly were present. slave Flo pretended having lost her memory and build her roleplay around it. slave kelly just enjoyed the presence of her owners after being away. She celebrated her 1st collaring anniversary on November 2nd. Happy belated collaring day, slave kelly!

Simploring 2018 (98) Hinansho

My simploring tour on Friday, November 2nd, led me to Hinansho. Once again I picked the landmark from scoop.it SL Destinations. Hinansho is a homestead owned and created by Akeno (akeno kaligawa). The landmark description is short: “Hinansho, a realistic japanese anime-like scenery.

Impressions of Hinansho (1)

I’ve never been in Japan or even in Asia in real life, hence all I know about it is from reading or watching tv. Hinansho does fit into my picture of Japan. It is a small town, the roads are narrow, the houses are small, everything is quite neat. There are small gardens, small oasises of peace. Nonetheless there’s a large playground, a quite large public park and a graveyard.
I explored the whole town and peeked into most houses. Some of them are empty inside but you can walk in and they are mostly tiny inside as well. But some of them are furnished. There’s a laundrette, a barber, a cafe and a bar. In one road close to the playground is a market with several market stalls. Just opposed to the graveyard is one relative large Japanese residential home that is furnished inside.

Impressions of Hinansho (2)

During my visit I was not alone in Hinansho. Several other people were visiting as well and their names were written in Japanese characters. That added to my feeling that I just made a short trip to Japan. I like how Akeno succeeded to put quite a lot houses into the limited space of a homestead, still leaving enough space for elements like the park and the graveyard. When you’re inside of the town, you feel like being in a bigger Japanese town. And there’s still room for small gardens as I would expect it.

Impressions of Hinansho (3)

I enjoyed my short trip to Japan. Thank you, Akeno.

Diary 2018 (197) November 4th/5th Relaxed

Sunday, November 4th, began just great. I had taken control of my property the day before and I found her leashed in the annex of our skybox when I came inworld in the afternoon. Of course I took advantage of my property. What a great way to start.

November 4th: Diomita taking advantage of Jenny, Mine / Mistress Jenny, Diomita and Angelique at home

Unfortunately I had to release her shortly afterwards for two reasons. Firstly I didn’t want to overstep and secondly if I did, it would become even harder to stop control again. We met shortly with Angelique and Jenny was already teasing me again. She was making plans for Angelique and me. But our hour in the afternoon was already over again.

At night Jenny wasn’t inworld and I visited Cica Ghosts newest installation “Rusty” (read here). That was fun! When I returned, Angelique was inworld and we played a few rounds greedy until she had to leave. slave Flo had some technical problems and finally made it online soon after Angelique had left.

November 4th: Diomita at Psi’s realm with slave slut cecy and slave Flo

I took slave Flo to Psi’s again where we met slave slut cecy. It was fun at Psi’s and a lot was going on, hence it was very entertaining. And I had my fun with slave slut cecy *winks*.

Monday, November 5th, was a very relaxed day in Second Life for Mistress Jenny and me. We met in the afternoon and caught up with our mutual news. Mistress did exchange my partnering collar with the sub collar again thus slowly taking back full control. We had a game of greedy with Angelique and then it was already time to return to our RL.

November 5th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita on a tour through “our” Clubs: Psi’s realm, Heavy Bondage Club, Domme a Domme, Dungeon of FDS, Mesmerize Dungeon

At night Mistress Jenny and I were amoung us. We visited our usual clubs, Psi’s realm, Heavy Bondage Club, Domme a Domme, Mesmerize Dungeon, Dungeon of FDS and again Psi’s realm. We chatted, read profiles and had a few IMs. Nothing really happened but it was nonetheless very enjoyable and relaxing. Before we went to bed, Mistress allowed me to spoil her (no pictures *winks*)

Simploring 2018 (97) Another joined exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli

On October 31st, a new joined exhibition of 5 different artists was opened at La Maison d’Aneli. This time it features the art of Nevereux, Cybele Moon (Hana Hoobinoo), rikku Yalin, Barret Darkfold and Violaine (anadonne). And once again the mixture of different art is quite facinating.

I started my visit with Nevereux, an artist who I came across this year the first time seeing the installation doLLoureux (read here). At La Maison d’Aneli Nevereux presents the 3Dinstallation “Assembly line”. This installation is mostly made up of black straight lines, that define a room or an area. Some very few elements and texts “disturb” the lines and the rooms built by them. This maybe a blinking “Sale” sign in red, or a chair or a sliding door or a head. Together wiht the different geometrical forms you’ll be inspired to think about the potential messages behind it. You cross the room freely, the lines don’t hinder you, but nonetheless you feel the limitations that those line imply on you. Everybody has to make it’s own conclusions. Or as Neveruex expresses it “The point is that you’re inside a 3D drawing.

La Maison d’Aneli – Neveroux

Cybele Moon (Hana Hoobinoo) is offers a mixture of photographs taken in the physical world on in virtual worlds. With some pictures it’s hard to distinguish where they were taken, or are the mixed? I liked in particular the Autumn picture with a tree loosing it’s leaves in front of it. Each of Cybele’s pictures seems to tell a story, that you have to make up yourself. The protraits are attracting, at least I wanted to know more, and again I can make up my own story.
Cybele has an own blog, that you might want to look up.

La Maison d’Aneli – Cybele Moon (Hana Hoobinoo)

rikku Yalin’s art is a mixture of 3D and 2D, the objects seem to be built from scrap, they are to some extent funny. They interact with the 2D pictures displayed at the walls, be it graffiti or be it screws, nuts and gearwheels. Looking at the details is very interesting and at least my thought was that it all shouldn’t be taken too seriously. I just enjoyed exploring rikku’s art.

La Maison d’Aneli – rikku Yalin

Barret Darkfold, in RL known as David Aran Brugues, is an abstract painter from Catalonia working with techniques like watercolor, oil, acrylic, mixed, encaustic, and digital art.
At La Maison d’Aneli he presents paintings with the colour Yellow. On a frist view they might look all similar, due to the amount of pictures on the same size, but looking closer at them you see that each of them is unique and as they are abstract you may interpret them yourself.
David Aran Brugues has also his own website, if you understand Spanish (I don’t) and are interested to see more of his art.

La Maison d’Aneli – Barret Darkfold (in RL David Aran Brugues)

Violaine (anadonne) shows variations of RL photographs, abstract pictures and watercolour. The pictures are grouped, 4 variations of a picture or scene each. They are clearly connected with each other and tell a story or offer a different point of view. I for my part can’t categorize her art. I think she’s playing with different forms to express herself.

La Maison d’Aneli – Violaine (anadonne)

La Maison d’Aneli is owned by Aneli Abeyante. Through her gallery she brings together all forms of creativity in RL and SL and the featured artists come from around the globe. Aneli’s intention is to “put her gallery in the service of artists, so that the world can be better, exchanges and meetings probably contribute even though it seems to be particles.

Thank you for another great joined exhibtion, Aneli. This joined exhibtion at La Maison d’Aneli is open until November 25th. I enjoyed my visit and it inspired me.

Diary 2018 (196) November 1st – 3rd Halloween wedding massacre

Thursday, November 1st, I met with my property Jenny at night. slave Flo was present and we went to Mesmerize Dungeon and to Psi’s realm with her. It was a very relaxed night and after slave Flo had left to bed, my property Jenny had to earn being released from the extra collar around her neck. She did well as I expected and I ended my green light as we had agreed upon before.

November 1st: Diomita and Jenny with slave Flo at Psi’s realm and at Mesmerize Dungeon / Jenny serving her owner Diomita at home

Friday, November 2nd, we had our regular Friday night party under the theme “Halloween wedding massacre”. It was our belated Halloween party as well as a party to celebrate Jenny’s and my 10th wedding anniversary amoung our friends. Jenny and I had set a shared prize of L$ 2,000 for the best outfit. We had great fun. Della Randt won the contest. Thank you to everybody who attended.

November 2nd: belated Halloween Party on the occasion of Jenny’s and Diomita’s 10th wedding anniversary

Saturday, November 3rd, I met with Mistress in the afternoon and she had already tidied up most of the Halloween decoration. We moved the chapel back into its place on the hill and rezzed the Shangri-La again next to the dance floor. Then we went to the annex of our skybox, the room that I use during green lights, and I reinstalled some of the toys that I had removed in order to have enough free prims for the Halloween decoration.
Mistress was naughty and tested the bambou bondage rack again. To make a longer story short, I couldn’t hold back and teased her and took control. As Jenny wouldn’t be online at night, I stored her leashed in the annex of our skybox. Sometimes it is way too hard to give up control *winks*

November 3rd: Diomita spontaneously taking control of her property Jenny, aka. Mine

Saturday night I was alone first, hence I decided to take the opportunity to visit a gallery (more abou this visit soon). When I returned home, I took a bath and began writing about my visit. slave Flo joined me and I took the opportunity to put her into the November outfit. It’s a gag suit, with one particular feature beside gagging, the key holder can select the colours. I started with a nice combination of white and pink. Later at night I tried white and yellow.

November 3rd: Diomita with slave Flo at home / Diomita with slave Flo at Psi’s realm visiting slave slut cecy

I took slave Flo to Psi’s realm. slut cecy had come inworld in the meanwhile and she was still hanging around at Psi’s. It was full and I had fun teasing slave Flo and slave slut cecy and watching the crowd. I also got an inspiration for Christmas seeing a sub decorated with lights.

 

Simploring 2018 (96) Sweet Paradise to the Dark’s

For my simploring tour on Thursday, November 1st, I picked Sweet Paradise to the Dark’s from scoop.it SL Destinations. The landmark description did kind of invite me:
Welcome to our land… be happy & enjoy your stay overhere ! It’s a priviledge being invited here by us 😉
Sweet hugs & kisses.
Anita & Kiara

Impressions of my visit to Sweet Paradise to the Dark’s (1)

Anita & Kiara that are Anita Dark (anita khaos) and Kiara Dark (kiaraslet) and Sweet Paradise is their home, their paradise. It consists of 2 islands, on each of them is nice house with several porches and piers. Kiara’s sailing yacht is anchored between the two islands. Both houses are furnished and decorated with great love for the detail. At the beach and on the porches are many spots to sit and talk and cuddle. Birds are flying and on the smaller island is a little group of flamingos. Yes, it’s a paradise, a place to take a time out.

Impressions of my visit to Sweet Paradise to the Dark’s (2)

I was surprised that Sweet Paradise to the Dark’s is open for the public as it looks being a private retreat, but as mentioned above I felt invited to visit and I appreciated the invitation. Sweet Paradise to the Dark’s offeres a lot of nice and peaceful views and is for sure a place for taking pictures. It is another example of what is possible in Second Life with just little ressources. I enjoyed a very relaxing time there.
Thank you, Anita and Kiara.
