Simploring 2017 (63) Temprus – My Secret Garden

Tuesday, August 1st, I made another simploring tour. I found Temprus My Secret Garden in the SL Destination guide  under the category art.
Temprus, home to Art in the Park, is featuring the work of Ilyra Chardin in a full sim, immersive art installation. Begin your exploration with “normal” gardens that quickly lead both to the secret garden and to Art in the Park.”

Upon your landing, you choose to either walk along the shoreline to “Art in the Park” or to see “My Secret Garden. I first explored “Art in the Park”, a gallery within a park just by the shoreline. There are paintings of several artists that have exhibitions also somewhere else like Sandi Benelli, Maxie Daviau, CybeleMoon (Hana Hobinoo), Kayleigh Lavende and ilyra chardin herself, who owns “Temprus My Secret Garden“. As far as I understood, the paintings are changing, there’re also particular exhibitions, which are announced either in a group, that you can join, or on the homepage for the sim “Temprus Times“.

“Art in the park” at Temprus – My Secret Garden

After my visit to the “Art in the Park”, I follwed the path to “My Secret Garden”. The stairs and the path end at a hut with a board “Just a garden shed. Nothin’ interesting here! KEEP OUT! This means YOU!!!” Of course that reads like an invitation to have a look, and I looked inside.

There’s nothing inside but the end of a tunnel that leads you below the big massive rocks to the other part of the island – and to a house with a garden in which art of ilyra chardin is exhibited. Is this the “My Secret Garden?” Honestly I have no idea. It is nice and tasteful though – or is “My Secret Garden” the farmstead, that covers most of this part of the island beyound the massive rock? I had a look around and enjoyed the silence and the peace. There’re also some children playing (mesh dolls) but ecept ot them, I saw none a the whole farmstead. At one end of the farmstead is a crooked and high frame house and I climbed on it just for the view over the island. From there I could see a beach which was my next point to visit.

Exploring the path to “My Secret Garden”? at Temprus – My Secret Garden

At the beach you find a scene that reminded me of Gulliver’s Travels by the Irish writer Jonathan Swift. Or is that scene related to anything else?

At the Northern end of the island is a row of industrial or warhouse houses, a crane and the submarine Nautilus. Again a scenery that doesn’t fit to the farmstead and seems to be of another world. And there’s this woman selling flowers and veggies … strange. There might be more to discover that will bring some more light into this, but I was lacking time.

The last edge of “Temprus My Secret Garden“, that I explored was Maycomb. It is spearated from the farmstead and the other parts of the island by a steep rock wall on one side and by the massive rock that parts the island by the other side. What you see is just one road, on the first glance I assumed that this road and the houses along it are a reproduction of the real Maycomb, Alabama in the United States. It looks at least typical, the map, that is shown on a baord at the entrance of the street looks real – but Maycomb, Alabama is a fiction from the novel “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee published in 1960. The primary themes of “To Kill a Mockingbird involve” racial injustice and the destruction of innocence. The story takes place during three years (1933–35) of the Great Depression in the fictional “tired old town” of Maycomb, Alabama, the seat of Maycomb County (source Wikipedia)

My visit to “Temprus My Secret Garden” was very varied, I enjoyed art as well as nature and some fictional places of novels, literature in 3D 🙂
Thank you, ilyra chardin!

Diary 2017 (125) July 31st / August 1st sissy maid

Monday night, July 31st, Mistress Jenny and I spent time with slave Adarra first. She was the first to get her August slave outfit. In August we will dress each slave according to what we see fits best for them. slave Adarra is dressed in a red latex catsuit, no hood and with her MD cuffs. I is nice to see slave Adarra’s face again – and the MD cuffs shall provide bondage fun (no picture right now as I forgot to take one).

August 1st: Mistress Jenny and Diomita with slave Flo in her August slave outfit and with sissy maid, who started her trial for us

With slave Adarra and slave maid Karen we went to test a new bdsm furniture – a dual slave post, that was build by Mitchen Heston. We saw Mitchen at club DeLust a couple of days ago, she has a deviant Art account and that connects Mitchen and me and got us in touch. That night Mitchen was looking for a second slave to test a new device and she took one slave from club DeLust with her. One day later I could see her slave and the one she picked up at club Delust nicely tied up at her new device in a series of pictures that she published on dA (under MissHeston). I asked Mitchen where to get it and she invited me over to her place to get one. It is still a beta version, but I’m sure we will have fun with it (again no picture right now).

After this visit (slave Adarra had left in the meanwhile) Mistress Jenny and I took slave maid Karen to our loft and we spoke about her future with her. Long story made short: slave maid Karen got a new maid dress and she had to change her display name to “sissy maid” (little hint, you could look under her skirt) and she started her trial to become our collared slave. It will not be the “traditional” cage trial. Mistress and I agreed that Karen will stay at home and keep the house clean for a while. The family and she will get the opportunity to get known to eachother. Good luck, sissy maid!

August 1st at home: Sissy maid gets her pet ring (Mistress Jenny, Diomita, slave Flo, sissy maid and Argi)

Tuesday night, August 1st, slave Flo got her outfit for August, consisting of a black latex catsuit, MD cuffs, and a RF hood. We got a short visit from Argi and sissy got her pet ring (nose ring). We also showed sissy maid the rest of our home and then the time was already up again. That night I didn’t forget to take some pictures *winks*.

Simploring 2017 (58) Sol and Mani

“Sol and Mani” by Fifi Candyfloss Oh at LEA 2

Scrolling through the SL Desination guide I came across Sol and Mani, an art installation of Fifi Candyfloss Oh (siouxsieincognita). Sol is the Goddess of the Sun and Mani is the God of the Moon in Norse/Germanic mythology.
Sol and Mani is an event place the main area is surrounded by sculptures of trees, displays of Sol and Mani in their chariots that are chased by wolfes. As some of the displays ar semi transparent you get different effects just depending from where and at which angle you look at them. Embedded in the (main?) display is the desk for the disc jockey and I took this place just for a picture.
I don’t know if Sol and Mani was buildt as a background for just one event, which was on July 8th or if there’ll be more events to come.

Impressions of “Sol and Mani” by Fifi Candyfloss Oh at LEA 2

Sol and Mani is embedded into another exhibition at LEA 2 by TerraMerhyem, who presents Norse/Germanic myths and legends. And Fifi Candyfloss Oh contributed to this exhibition, as far as I understood. This exhibition ends July 31st, so there’s not much time left to see it. And most probably also Sol and Mani will end July 31st then. I added just a few impressions of TerraMerhyem’s exhibition. It can be reached by a teleporter pad at Sol and Mani.

Fifi Candyfloss Oh is an American digital artist, builder & photographer. She has also a deviant Art account and she’s engaged at MetaHapers, a casual, easy going group of individuals. They create and publicize examples of highly imaginative art in SL, and explore how SL’s virtual world enables new artistic fusions of technology and art. And they run a website http://www.metaharpers.net/

Diary 2017 (103) June 26th – LUMIPro

Life is not predictable. That is in particular true for a platform like Second Life.

Monday, June 26th, I met with Mistress Jenny in the afternoon. We just caught up with news and spent some time together in clubs (I made no pictures). At night Mistress was not online and after the full night the day before, I expected another full night – far wrong! Actually none of our subs and slaves and none of our current kidnapees Maddie and Jade were present. Time for some simploring, right? But I wasn’t in the mood for simploring nor did I want to go shopping.

Instead I took a deeper look into a photographer HUD of which I read on deviant Art – LUMIPro. Some people make amazing picture in Seond Life and I always wondered, how the heck they achieve a close to perfect illumination of objects and in particular of avatars. I found the LUMIPro HUD on the Second Life marketplace and the description there that led me to several longer introduction video tutorials and to the blog about the HUD (see here ) – very interesting. The HUD is quite expensive for Second Life Standards, it seems complicated and it is complex but I thought that it might be worth the money and that I might be able handling it. I decided to give it a try and went to the LUMIPro inworld store . There I got a fully operational demo HUD, that works in the store only. I played around with it and made two pictures of myself….. then I bought the HUD.

I went back home and to my surprise it was already late. But of course now I had to take some more pictures. I made my first attempt at Domme a Domme but I found out that it is not the right enviroment regarding lights for someone new and unexperienced with the LUMIPro HUD. In addition I got interruptions and couldn’t focus, hence I went home and to our photostudio for my next pictures. Time really flew by. I’m going to have fun with the LUMIPro HUD! Here are my first pictures (of myself) using it.

slave cecy

Those reading this blog or knowing and meeting us inworld know also our slave cecy (cecyme at deviant art, see here). She’s close to steadily “melting”, being wet and horny. And she also can’t resist to be humiliated as it excites her even more. Having that in mind, Mistress Jenny did extend slave cecy’s SL a bit to RL as I wrote in yesterday’s entry.
An extension from SL to RL and vice versa can be done in different ways and all of them are used in SL by many people, some are at least scary for my taste and not my cup of tea at all – and not a subject I write about here in this blog but to keep in privacy. Mistress Jenny teased slave cecy giving her RL orders what to do while being online in full mutual consent. I won’t go into details here but one detail I’ll reveal is that slave cecy has a collar in RL.
On Friday night, January 13th, we had our regular party. It was great as always by the way, you should come and attend it. slave cecy was melting and drippin’ wet (just the way she is *winks*) and I felt forced to put “caution wet” boards out in order that none complains about slipping.

slave cecy got an assigment by Mistress Jenny on Thursday, January 12th. She had to take a picture of her collar and provide it to us. And she did provide it Friday night. Good slave girl! Now her 1st life section in her profile is finally filled, showing the picture below.

slave cecy submission to us and her devotion is particular and she was eager to get this picture published in this blog to prove it, that’s why I publish it here. It’s in her public profile anyway. Thank you, slave cecy. So far we rarely touched this area of play in this blog and we do not intend starting that now. As opposed to we will only write about this kind of extending SL to RL on rare occasiona like the one with slave cecy Friday night.

Keys

When I opened my page at deviant Art Sunday morning I came across a picture of Chisato Watanabe who I watch on dA. It shows her surrounded by keys and is titeled “Arrival at Keys“. That really caught my attention and I commented: “I’ll have to visit this sim! I knew that all the keys I grabbed and lost must be somewhere – there!”. It didn’t take that long to find the place she visited in Second Life – Keys by Cica Ghost.

June 19th: Keys by Cica Ghost (1)

June 19th: Keys by Cica Ghost (1)

Cica Ghost is an artist from Serbia who’s in Second Life since 2010. She created a lot of sims and her art has it’s own handwriting. I visited several of her installations but searching this blog I found just one post about her work: Ruins.
Keys is a sim filled with pipes, grid flooring, screws, steel frames, containers, chains and …. keys! Upon your arrival you will notice the first huge key in the door behind which you enter the sim. I haven’t seen so many keys on one spot ever. They are everywhere and many of them are dangling on chains and seemingly build a curtain.

Take a closer look on the picture above. Some of the keys have letters, so they are marked, they belong to someone’s cuffs maybe … just as if here is the storage of all the keys I lost in my time in Second Life. The containers that are spread within the gigantic chaotic mess of pipes, platforms and frames are locked with the huge keys just like the door through which you enter the sim. Of course I entered not just one of the containers. Inside of every one is a giant lonely guy with a scary white face. Beside of him all containers are empty. Maybe it is the same person … or a family … who knows?

I searched for a description of Cica Ghost’s keys on the internet as the landmark description simply says “Twisted in a special way…” and found that there’s also a post on Inara Pey’s blog about Keys, that I simply missed – “Cica’s Keys in Second Life“. There you’ll find a more detailled interpretation about Keys and it’s meanings. But I guess everybody has an own interpretation or feeling. For me here are the keys that I lost and in the containers are the souls of the “poor” slaves and subs that I forgot. I am aware that this is a quite individual and opinionated interpretation *winks*.
Last but not least I also visited Cica’s store inworld. The landmark to it is at the landing point to Keys. Here you find some of the stuff Cica Ghost used in her artwork and I remembered that I saw some of it in Cica’s previous installations.

Diary (37) April 25th

Just another diary blog entry…..
Our slaves Flo, Nina and Gebby are now in a very basic outfit, just serious shackles and different clothing. sklavin Gebby selected a catsuit with the shakles and we approved it. She may change it as long as it fits to the overall look. slave Flo selected a party dress first, but we didn’t approve that, so now she is in lingerie. And slave Nina gave a full overview about her possible outfits and uploaded it to her dA account (http://sgunjin.deviantart.com/). We selected the outfit first, then the colour. slave Nina trapped herself somewhere and couldn’t come home.. so she had to wait there.

slave Flo is testing her limits again. Mistress Jenny told her that I’ll get punished when I’m not strict enough with her and slave Flo took it as an invitation to provoke me to get it strict, like she loves it. This way slave Flo ended tightly locked up in “her” padded cell in our dungeon to think about her behavior (end enjoy).

April 25th: slave Flo in her padded cell at home

April 25th: slave Flo in her padded cell at home

Today I found on slave Nina’s above mentioned dA side that she is back home. slave Flo teleported her directly into her padded cell, so now both of them enjoy the padded cell. She commented her picture of the scene: “Nina’s slave-sister Flo was online when Nina logged in. Nina asked if Flo could provide her teleportation, and indeed she could! Of course, Flo happened to be in a padded cell at the time, so that’s where Nina ended up too. Quite nice and comfy cell, except I think Flo had peed on the floor… :)

You might ask where slave cecy is? Well, she’s still at Ropers playground and I visited her shortly tonight to cheer her up and to keep up her excitement.

Later Jenny and Kitty came online and we decided to take Kitty for a ride with the rollercoaster at Stonehaven (see April 23rd: The River Rock club at Stonehaven). I can tell that Kitty did enjoy the ride to the fullest! She was also excited about the double coincidence Stonehaven & River Rock. And Jenny and I had fun again too.
20160525 StonehavenOur night ended very relaxed at club DeLust where we caught up and winded down. I took this picture of Mistress Jenny and myself as it shows my new collar very well and you can see the difference to Mistress Jenny’s collar that is smaller.
