Diary 2018 (57) April 1st – Mario’s Easter Light Show

I had an invitation to for Sunday, April 1st, Easter 2018, to visit Mario2 Helstein’s Easter Light show. Angelique accompanied me to the event, which was once again at the Theatre On The Hill. Mario presented an amazing show again. The light effects are breathtaking, the music is selected thoughtfully. There were quite some elements that I saw in previous light shows of Mario, but it looks different from every angle, and different if you zoom in and out – and even more important, you I can’t get enough watching it. Following the show was a real Easter event for me.

Of course I took dozends of pictures again, much more than I can show here. I got the link to a videotaping of the whole light show from Mario a couple of hours after the show. The video was recorded by Peet Auer. There you can get an idea how amazing the light show looks like seeing it live.

And the next day I got the linkto another video showing some parts of the Easter Light show at the Theater In the Hill. This video was taken by Suzie Anderton of InWorld Films.

Thank you for the great show, Mario!

Dio’s 10th year in Second Life Feb 11th, 2018 – Part II

Yesterday, I had my my 10th anniversary of joining Second Life.
It has become a tradition for me to write a longer blog post on the occasion of my rezzdays, to have a look back on the last year and to realize the changes in my Second Life as well as the things that didn’t change. Yesterday, I published Part I of my anniversary entry and talked about my home, the changes in the family and my simploring tours.
Today’s part II is about family members,  other Highlights of my 10th year in Second Life and about my relation with my property, my wife, my Mistress Jenny. Enjoy!

Back to my SL “family”. They had their own highlights in my 10th year and of course these are also highlights for me.
slave Flo wrote another story, which still can be continued: The Victorian Corset. You’ll find part I, part II and part III in this blog. We had fun reading and illustrating it.


Kitty Maurer had kind of a competition with our ex-slave Dana and became a Hu-cow (Human Cow) like Dana. Considering that Kitty is male gave it an extra kinky touch. Kitty did well and produced lots of milk. I could have considered to drink my coffee with milk again *winks*. It was fun!

August 5th: Diomita with Hu-cow Kitty

Angelique got very active at the Oak Meadow community and managed a lot there. It was a new experience for her, trying to get all interests aligned. Some day it was all too much for her and she retreated from her “job” there and started something new. She then began to study at Birchwood Academy …. and gave in her studies in January 2018, saying that the academy is a step to high for her, she can’t follow the classes and gets behind. Oh my, I don’t want to sum up all the tuition we payed over the last years for Angelique’s education and still she’s a real brat sometimes. She’s now at another Institute called R.M.I., where they want to  treat her self wetting problems. It looks like we’ll pay more tuition.

September 17th: Angelique Maurer

Our slave slut cecy continously added to our fun. Her sluttiness and desire are insatiable. Unfortunately slut’s online times do not fit with ours anymore and we see her only during the weekends lately. Nonetheless, slace slut cecy is dedicated to us and loyal and we enjoy having her in our family and love to tease her when she’s around.

September 6th: slave slut cecy hanging around at Lochme (pictures by cecyme)

Our slavin Christa had the fantasy to become a puppy slave. Be careful, what you wish for! She became our puppy slave and we restricted her hearing and speech to that of a pet (there’re some great scripts for that). We had agreed to keep her as our pet for one full year. After 6 months, we allowed her to change her outfit and we loosened her restrictions a bit, so that she can communicate with us at least. She still has another 6 months to go.

December 26th: Diomita with slave pet Christa in her new puppy suit at home and at Mesmerize Dungeon

slave Adarra couldn’t be with us as much as she and we wanted due to her RL and the timezone issues. We did not see her often, but when she was around, she was always helpful and tried to add her part to the family. For example she made slave Kelly’s branding for the Maitreya mesh body.

October 17th: Diomita watching the slaves kelly and Adarra at our Stonehaven patio

My 10th year starts with Kitty Maurer, slave Flo, slave slut cecy, slave Adarra, slave puppy slavin C, slave kelly and slave Bella as officially collared slaves and subs. Angelique Maurer is not collared by us, but as our niece she’s part of the most inner circle. We’re quite full again:-).
In March 2017 we started our key-holding service. Our idea was (and is) that unowned slaves and subs may come to us, ready to be locked. We will lock their gear and take their keys for a predefined (longer) time of a week or more. They can enjoy being helpless and controlled. There’s no way back. We take a small fee for it, that is used to support our regular Friday night parties and our dj Virgo Babii. We had some feed back and the service also added to our fun.


The Friday night parties are a fix date in our Second Life. We enjoy starting the weekend dancing and chatting and being very relaxed. It might be one of the oldest regular parties in Second Life, running since 2008. WOW. Lately our parties have been very well attended and we came to the limit of our homesim, that can only handle 20 people simultaneously. Thank you for the great music and for providing this fun, Virgo. It became a part of my RL.

November 10th: Friday Night Party

We pursued our kinky Second Life not only within the family. We had several potential slaves and subs around us for a limited time. They left again for different reasons. Nonetheless they added to our fun. I want to mention here: Maddie (), slave Jade (,), Summer Robertson (), Rubbertoy (), sissy maid (), ally () and slave D ().


My relation to Mistress Jenny is the base of my Second Life. I wouldn’t be here without her. She continued to strenghten her position as my Mistress. As of right now, this is not going to change. She grants green lights to me, where I may control her (I do enjoy the green lights a lot!) and she holds me in a red light, when she’s in the mood to apply her full control. This is keeping our relation exciting.

During one of these red lights, Mistress Jenny had me in an outfit, that she named “submission complete”, and this describes our relation as how it is right now. Mistress Jenny is in charge and I am her Ehesklavin, her married sub wife. Nonetheless we mostly are a domme couple and we both enjoy controlling our slaves. Thank you Jenny for being my Mistress, my world and for being Mine nonetheless.

August 31st: Mistress Jenny with Ehesklavin Diomita – “Submission complete”

What’s left from my 9th year in Second Life, that I didn’t mention yet? Yes, an actual picture of myself. Inspired by Angelique and others I decided to try out a mesh head. In Second Life you become more beautiful with time, YAY. Such a shame that we can’t transmit that to real life. With Angelique’s help I managed to get the mesh head looking quite similar to my system head, hence it is still me (Angelique’s mesh head is really “wow”). I can switch between both heads and I do change according to the technical needs. The mesh head for example isn’t animated correctly for animations of older equipments. In addition I sometimes come the the maximum of possible attachments when I wear the Mesh head. The Mesh head is of Advantage, when I take close-up pictures, particularly when I use my LUMIPro HUD.

September 16th/17th: Diomita Maurer with “systemhead” and with “mesh head”

For sure 10 years is a long time in reality as well as in a virtual world like Second Life. I was blessed to come across Jenny with who I share not only Second Life. Our relation is the strong base upon which we built our world, but we also need and enjoy the community of family and friends around us. Thank you all for making this world for me and for us. SL is first of all about people and it’s you all who make my and our SL what it is: Still going strong, still enjoyable and still exciting! It was a great 10th year in Second Life and I look forward to the 11th!
Love from Diomita

Dio’s 10th year in Second Life Feb 11th, 2018 – Part I

Incredible!
Today marks my 10th anniversary of joining Second Life.
It has become a tradition for me to write a longer blog post on the occasion of my rezzdays, to have a look back on the last year and to realize the changes in my Second Life as well as the things that didn’t change.
As this post became a little bit too long, I decided to split it into two parts. The part one will be about our home, the changes in the Family and my simploring tours. Enjoy!

Let’s start with our home. It hasn’t changed. This time I also can’t report about a major refurbisment. There have been only some minor changes, some more plants, some new furniture and toys. I personally am very happy with the layout as it is now, but there’s always room for improvements.

December 15th: Our winterly homesim “Mount Everest”

Since my 9th rezzday the family has only grown. None of our slaves and subs left. We still have slave Flo, slave slut cecy, slave Adarra and slavin C. Our sub Kitty Maurer is still owned by us and enjoying spreading mischief and causing trouble for herself and others. And Angelique Maurer, our niece, stayed close to us as well. She left Zoey and finds more and more her own way in Second Life but she feels being at home when she’s with us.

The Maurer’s: slave Adarra, slave puppy Christa, slave slut cecy, Diomita, slave kelly, Mistress Jenny, Angelique, slave Flo, slave Belly and Kitty (from left to right, picture is from January 1st, I added in slave Adarra, slave Bella and Kitty)

In October 2017, I met kelly (kellytrip) at Heavy Bondage Club. I knew her as Claven’s slave. Claven brought her sometimes to our Friday night parties as a kind of a decoration for her. Claven gave her to Mara (Maralyn Corleone) and Mara allowed kelly some freedom, like looking for trouble at Heavy Bondage Club. kelly found the trouble she was seeking for. What started with teasing developed to a longer roleplay. We had kelly and later also her former owner Mara as our victims at home. We shaved their heads bald, we (ab)used them and we threatened both. The roleplay ended when kelly offered to fully submit to us if we let Mara go. slave kelly, Maurer’s lil slave, had no traditional trial, she was simply enslaved and is our slave now.

October 2017: Diomita with slave kelly

In November 2017 Bella (BellaRose1998) came to us. She attended one of our Friday night parties from a quite secure distance. Bella didn’t dance but stood aside most of the time and she spent some time at the pit, where slave kelly was stored that night. She was picturing herself fully controlled, tied and locked and was not at all shying away even from isolation but had no experience. Bella stayed with us for several weeks, was treated like a slave and fitted in well. She’s patient and accepts her place. After a short traditional trial in the tube cell, we collared her as Maurer’s Rose in January 2018.
I explored and discovered a lot in Second Life during my 9th year. I admire the creativity of artists in this virtual world, I visited galleries like MetaLes ..O.. ArT Virtual Space, Blue Orange, SOOSH Art Gallery, Serena Imagine Arts Center, The Eye Art Gallery and La Maison d’Aneli. I saw several installations within the LEA programm like Another world, Surreal Chess Wonderland, 16 Fields and The Mind of The Machine. I came across the light shows of Mario2 Helstein and saw the Solstice Light Show. I discovered the fractals of Gem Preiz in his exhibitions No Frontiers and Chaos. I visited Enchanted art and Cerridwens Cauldron, I saw Moya …. and many many more.

Dio’s 9th year in Second Life – selection of art that I saw

I found many cosy and lovely sims where people buildt their own dreamworld, peaceful and picturesque. You don’t need many prims or a large place for it, Long Journey and Another Long Journey are examples for that. Most of these dreamworlds were homesteads: Maison de L’amitié, Amandia, Follow Your Bliss (II), Ash Falls, Tavana Island, Sunfall, Sol Existence, Binemust, Borneo Island, Aspen Fell Memories, Cherishville, Holiday Trace, somewhere ….. just to name a few. In these sims I spent relaxing hours and enjoyed the views and the peace.

Then there were the sims that have a real background, where a place in the physical world was build in Second Life. This way I got a picture, an idea of the real places and my visit gave reason to do a little bit of research. Khodovarikha (in the Barents Sea, Russia) was one of the most impressing places and I spent some time learning about this place in the real world. I didn’t read or hear about Marfa before seeing it in Second Life, now I know that this place in the middle of nowhere is quite known as a major center for Minimalist art. But there were more like West Of The Rain (inspired by The San Juan Islands in Washington State), Costa Blanco (a southern province of Sweden), A piece of Ireland (Blarney Castle in Ireland), ~Neive~ (Neive is located in the Province of Cuneo in the Italian region Piedmont) and New Greenland (inspired by Kangaamiut, Greenland).

I also discovered many places related to my kinky side, to BDSM. That’s another dream you can live in Second Life and I do. Some of these places were not new at all, but new for me or I just rediscovered them. I want to mention the Seaside Slave Storage, Angel of Pain’s BDSM Island (which I visit more often again), SJC Playground, Fortress Mortice, Chek Chau – Daisy’s playground, LICK and Crystal Bay, Elegant Femme Gallery and Maison Sybille, Sadiana, Headlights, Mirage and The Havens. But there’re many many more. Also these places are build with passion and love and they all offer a lot more than just bdsm.

Thank you all for building, for creating and for sharing your dreams with the rest of the community. And please apologize if I forgot to mention some of my tours, it were too many. I did really enjoy all of my simploring tours!

End of part I

Merry Christmas

We wish all friends and Readers of our blog a merry Christmas. Enjoy time with your families in Real Life and in Second Life, just celebrate!

I recently got a message from Mario2 Helstein, who made a Christmas Installation in Sansar. I didn’t see it yet, as I didn’t find time for it. Mario made a video and it is jsut lovely to watch at this time of the year. Thank you, Mario. Enjoy watching!

 

Diary 2017 (160) Sept. 22nd/23rd – Pirates, Lights, and a dress

Friday night, September 22nd, we had another party. The theme that Virgo picked was “Pirates”. We were just Virgo, Starry and myself in the beginning and hence I had time to get a fitting dress on the marketplace. I’m prepared now for the next “Pirates”-party. We had a very nice party with more guests later.

September 22nd: Friday night party “Pirates” – Baroness Capeleo, Diomita Maurer (upper pictures) and Della Randt, Starry, Virgo (lower pictures)

Saturday, September 23rd, I met with Mistress Jenny in the afternoon. She had announced before to take more control again yet I didn’t expect what she had in mind. We went to Restrained Freedom and she bought a sub suit for me. The sub suit is a quite elaborted restricting dress, that offers a lot of different designs, from a short unstricted dress to a full encasement with a hood – and a lot inbetween. Every single part of it can be coloured with a HUD in any Color and any material. Offering such a variety it is not that easy to set it up. slave Flo has one and I played with it several times. And now I own one, because Mistress wanted it for me. To stay honest, she also said that I may buy her one too. She will have the advantage that I can help her setting it up. I spent the rest of Saturday afternoon with setting up the sub suit and had it ready for Mistress Jenny at night.

September 23rd: Diomita Maurer wearing the “RF sub suit”

Saturday night we went attending a light show by Mario2 Helstein. I know Mario’s art and shows from visiting his LEA installation “Light Thoughts 3” (read here) and from visitng one of his former shows, the “Solstice Light Show” (read here). Mario had been busy working on the Sansar project and is back to Second Life now to do some events. He did a new “Equinox Show” at the Theatere On the Hill Saturday night and I had an invitation.

September 23rd: Impressions of Mario2 Helstein’s_Equinox_Show (1)

The show was fantastic again and I took about 100 (!) pictures again. For Mistress Jenny and slave Flo it was the first time seeing Mario’s light show and I’m glad they liked it as I did. Just amazing!

September 23rd: Impressions of Mario2 Helstein’s_Equinox_Show (2)

The show lasted over one hour and slave Flo went to bed when it was finished. Mistress Jenny and I went to The Secret house to wind down and we met Argi there. Soon later Kitty and slave slut cecy joined us. As it was already late we just chatted and caught up, then we brought slave cecy to Lochme, where she can hang around for a while.

September 23rd: Mistress Jenny, Diomita, Kitty and slut cecy at TSH and Lochme

What a varied Saturday night!

Simploring 2017 (54) 16 Fields – Lichtbringer

Saturday, July 8th, I was up for simploring. I looked up the SL destination guide as well as the blogs that I follow but no pick did come across that tempted me spontaneously for a visit. I decided to have a look at LEA sims, as I know that by end of June some of them at least had to be given up in order to give other artists the opportunity to show their talent. This way I found 16 Fields and Lichtbringer. Lichtbringer is a German group of artists, namely Frau Wu aka Just (justmetrying) who is responsible for Management, PR and events of the group and Elektra (hangrod.hax) and Louis Wu (cyberklon) who both are responsible for ideas and make Meshes, scripting, lights and textures. Lichtbringer is a German composite word, literally it translates to “deliverers of light”. It could be interpreted religious but in this case it is supposed to be taken literally – delivering lights. The group works together on projects since 2015 and is mainly inspired by Mario2 Helstein. I just had and simploring post about Mario’s LEA installation “Light Thoughts 3” – read here). Lichtbringer has an own website – http://lichtbringer-sl.com/ where they anounce events and installations.

Their current LEA installation at LEA 26 is named 16 Flieds. They describe it as follows:

“The sim is divided into 16 fields. In these 16 Fields works from Lichtbringer like Meshes, Particles, Advanced Lights, and animated Meshes will be shown. In the center is a meeting point for all lightfanatics to meet, chat and have a coffee. The field contents will be changed every week. Stay informed about changes by joining the Lichtbringer Group. The sim has a wide field of contents changing randomly. Photographer-friendly spots are involved. And of course events will follow as well.

I zoomed my cam out so that you can see the structure with the 16 fields and the meeting point.

“16 Fields” by Lichtbringer

16 Fields is just a great sim to experience the possibilities of light and mesh in Second Life and for someone who likes taking pictures it is just perfect! Each picture that I took grabbed a moment of virtual reality and can’t be repeated again. I had lots of impressions and the next pictures just show some of them. I ended my visit going to the central meeting point where I saw Louis Wu (cyberklon). Unfortunately he was absent so I could just leave a message appreciating the great work. His avatar is a piece of art in itself!

I ended my visit with a selfie at the meeting point. I can just recommend that you visit 16 Fields and for sure attending one of the events from Lichtbringer is something to be considered. Thank you Frau Wu aka Just, Elektra and Louis Wu for your great and inspiring work!

Simploring 2017 (48) Solstice Light Show

Just recently I visited the light art installation Light Thoughts 3 and I published an entry about it here ). I was impressed.
I had a nice conversation with the two artists that realized the Light Thoughs 3 installation, Mario2 Helstein and Jo Williams, and I was invited to attend a Light Show on Saturday, June 17th.

Solstice Light Show!!
In celebration of the beginning of Summer
Special Light Show by Mario2 Helstein.
Theatre On The Hill 17th 1:00 pm slt
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Pure%20Luxury/60/231/3403

I was never at a light show like this before in my over 9 years in Second Life. It is incredible what this platform offers for artists and for us to watch. The Theatre On The Hill is a tribune in the form of a half circle that floats in the sky. I took a seat and watched. WOW. Accompanied by modern digital music Mario created a firework of lights and effects, of forms and colours, of rotating shapes, of exploding and imploding stars and objects. He stood in the middle of the stage, that was invisible because of the light effects, at his console and directed the show.

It was not a short show, Mario performed far over an hour for us. Amazing, beautiful, impressive – I lack of words. I took 130 (!) in this one hour, to capture the moment, the colours, but you can capture the experience of seeing it live. The pictures can’t show the motion, how the objects changed in form and colour, and how the light particles steadily were changing what you saw.

I can’t publish all 130 pictures here nor can I replace the live experience with pictures but you might get a little impression of the show. I strongly recommend that you visit the show itself. There will be another live performance on June 30th. You should join the group “[M2D] creations” to get a group notice about it. And there will be also another light show in September – I hope that I don’t miss it.

Thank you Mario for this great hour in Second Life. I really enjoyed it and am impressed.
