Simploring 2019 (68) Devin’s Eye

For my 2nd simploring tour on Sunday, June 2nd, I picked Devin’s Eye from scoop.it SL Destinations. Devin’s Eye is a homestead, rated general, owned by Roy Mildor and his partner Ally Mildor (Ally Daysleeper). It consists of three parts:
The ground level offers a nice island with a bit of everything, a long pier, a nice beach, spots to sit and watch, nature, horses and other animals, a garage, a zip line and a bungee tower.
On a seperate platform in the skies above is Roy Mildor’s store “Top Striker“, a shop for tattoos.
And on another platform in the skies is another landscape, a sand desert with an oasis in it’s center.

Devin’s Eye – overview and first impressions

The ground level is a great spot for taking pictures and to retreat and enjoy the peaceful setting. There’s not a real theme for this island. I couldn’t tell if it is in Europe or America, but it is not in the Caribbean nor is it in the Mediterranean. I liked in particular the bungee tower as I didn’t jump before in Second Life (nor in RL). That was fun.

Impressions of Devin’s Eye (1)

It made me smile seeing a rock formation at a canyon that looked like a springboard – and there was a sign with a skull “Danger”. I found several spots that were inviting to sit down and for taking pictures. I think my pictures give an impression of the ground level of Devin’s Eye.

The 2nd landscape can be reached by using on of the teleport boards that are at Devin’s Eye. One is at the beach. This 2nd landscape is really different and also comes with an extra. You can ride a beach buggy and as it is a desert, that makes fun. At the oasis you can watch animals, camels, hippos, giraffes, zebras, tigers, birds and elephants.

There’s a tower that you can climb up to get a nice view. You can also use a hot air balloon for getting a bird’s eye view. There’s a romantic rope bridge between 2 huts. The bridge leads the oasis, the huts offer the opportunity to sit and enjoy the view. It somehow looks a bit misplaced. But when you use it just as a backdrop for a picture, then it is nice with the elephants drinking and playing with the water just close by.

I had fun visiting Devin’s Eye. Thank you Roy and Ally for providing your homeplace to the public. I always appreciate when shop owners combine their business with a nice environment for all to enjoy.

Simploring 2019 (63) Blaylock Island, where peaceful waters flow

Following Inara Pey’s blogpost “The waters of Blaylock Island in Second Life” I visited Blaylock Island, where peaceful water flow. This moderate homestead is owned and designed by Jaccy (Jaccaranda Jael) with the support of Magenta Silverfall and Tira Langur (Tira Yalin).

Blaylock Island overview / around the landing point

Close to the landing point is an inviting sign: “Welcome dear visitor. Everybody is welcome to explore our sim. Find our sealgroup near the ocean, wander trough the rainforest up to the hill, take a boat to feel the swamp … just have a great day. greetings Jaccy, Magy and Tira

Impressions of Blaylock Island (1)

Blaylock Island has a beautiful and varied design. Close and around the landing point you can enjoy the view on the sea of watch seals and seagulls. If you turn and look to the other side, there’re tall rocks with quite some waterfalls and a lot of vegetation – a rainforest.

Impressions of Blaylock Island (2)

The rainforest is fun to explore. I climbed up the stairs to one mountain, from where a zip line leads back to the beach and of course I tried the ride. I also found a rope that you can use to cross a bay. That was fun, although I really wasn’t dressed for it, but Second Life allows that *winks*
Of course it rains in the rainforest but there’re enough places to retreat under a roof or a rock and to sit dry and cosy. Apropos sitting, there are innumberable places to sit and cuddle at Baylock Island.

Impressions of Blaylock Island (3)

The two houses and the two houseboats are furnished and decorated with love for the detail. I saw no private and had a look inside. At several spots you can take a boat and use it to explore the Baylock Island by boat, getting a different view.

Impressions of Blaylock Island (4)

Blaylock Island is a perfect place to retreat and enjoy the beauty of Second Life, the nature and the peace. I like the design. Thank you Jaccy, Magy and Tira for creating and providing this magic place to the public

Simploring 2019 (59) Missing Melody – May 2019

In January I visited Missing Melody (read Simploring 2019 (5) Missing Melody). When I saw posts and pictures about it on scoop.it SL Destinations recently I only recognized the name but not the sim itself, that has changed completely. Hence I decided to visit it again.

Missing Melody – May 2019 – overview and first impressions

Missing Melody is a moderate homestead owned by Bambi (norahbrent). The landmark description has changed as well as the whole design:
Missing Melody. Waking up to a new dawn. Smiling at the awaking sun humming a nostalgic tune. Missing Melody is a collaboration of best friends coming together to create something new. Dedicated with love to Conni. RIP

Impressions of Missing Melody – May 2019 (1)

In the center of Missing Melody is a row of 4 houses, a market with some stands, a cafe, some cars, a street and a promenade. Closeby is a large beach with a wooden pier that is home to a small fair. The whole setting looks quite Mediterrean. There’re 3 smaller islands. One seems to be a private home and I didn’t look inside.

Missing Melody is very picturesque and invites to stay, to take pictures, to enjoy a cafe, to have a closer look at all the details on the market, to sit and relax at the beach or to simply enjoy an hour in a little paradise.

Impressions of Missing Melody – May 2019 (2)

One of the three islands nearby is home for a gallery, Conni’s RIP gallery. Bambi writes about Conni and this gallery in her profile:
On the hill surrounded by flowers in bloom lays a country house safely watching over to Missing Melody. Conni’s house is now a gallery dedicated in her memory. Please feel free to visit. Look at her art, read the little memories her friends and loved ones shared. You can add your own memory in the guest book. The gallery will be the only thing that will remain as is in Missing Melody.

Impressions of Missing Melody – May 2019 (3)

Of course I visited the gallery. It is touching to read in the guest book and to see all the pictures. You can sense all the happy hours spent in Second Life. It is another way to keep the memories of this virtual world in our real life. The orginal landmark description from my first visit to Missing Melody back in January can now be found in Bambi’s profile and fits very well:
What is a Missing Melody? It’s that song in your head that you can’t get out but not sure how it really goes. It’s that temptation you want to have in your life so you can fight to resist. It’s that place in your heart that is always waiting to be filled.

Impressions of Conni’s RIP Gallery at Missing Melody

Missing Melody did conjure a smile on my face. I enjoyed my visit and I might visit again, just to enjoy. Thank you Bambi for creating this new sim and sharing it with the public.

Diary 2019 (72) May 16th / 17th – My different collars

My afternoon, Thursday May 16th, became a bit different from those the days before. I had changed into a quite dominant outfit the day before and I tried to act less submissively towards Mistress in order to prove that I’m strong enough and to give her no reason to deny my next green light. That afternoon I didn’t greet her with a subhug and didn’t address her properly when we met.
We went to club Domme a Domme to catch up. Mistress wore a new corset that looks quite stunning on her. Then Mistress Jenny mentioned how I greeted her and addressed her and that “we” have to correct it. When I’m wearing the Ehesklavin collar (and I wore it that day), she demands my full attention and expects that I follow all of the rules she set for me. Mistress made me wear the vixen collar in addition and restricted me from touch and from using channels.
Then we went home to our skybox and she added a ringgag. Mistress allowed me to lick and please her but it was almost work as I was restricted by the gag. And Mistress continued teasing me before she logged off for dinner. She left me gagged.

May 16th: Mistress Jenny and Ehesklavin Diomita at club Domme a Domme and at home

When I returned at night, Mistress unlocked the vixen collar and the ringgag. It was her way not only to demonstrate her power and control but also to enforce her rules. She expects my full submission and perfect behavior when I wear the Ehesklavin collar and she wants me to relax when I wear the sub collar. She understood my intentions though, but I didn’t relax when I had the opportunity to some days before which was the reason she exchanged my sub collar with the Ehesklavin collar. And wearing the Ehesklavin collar means that I have to behave accordingly.
Mistress is caring, loving, she’s playful and very attentive and she’s still consequent and persistently following her intentions, ideas and plans. She’s slowly but steadily forming me the way she wants me to be.

We went seeing slave Flo and Angelique. Angelique did once again create a great mix and match outfit. It is always a pleasure to see her and her creativity. We used both’s presence for a round of skipee (Mistress and slave Flo won it this time against Angelique and me).
While we were playing slave slut cecy came inworld. She was leashed in our living room so that she could dust – and she began cleaning our house. After we finished playing skipee we went over to house and talked with her as well as teased her. Mistress Jenny allowed her having anorgasm in RL but she also wants her to clean the house once again (and all of it this time).

May 16th – a varied night: Mistress Jenny, Diomita, Angelique and slave Flo at home (upper left) / Angelique in another great outfit (upper middle) / Mistress Jenny, Diomita, slave Flo and slave slut cecy (lower middle) / Mistress Jenny, Diomita and slave Flo at Mesmerize Dungeon (lower right) / slave maid slut cecy (right)

slave slut cecy had to leave and to tend to her RL and we went to Mesmerize Dungeon with slave Flo for half an hour until slave Flo had to leave as well. Before we logged out ourselves Mistress exchanged my Ehesklavin collar with the sub collar again, knowing that I understood her intentions better now. Thank you, Mistress Jenny.

Friday afternoon was relaxed for me. Mistress and I spent a short time at DaD and caught up, then went back to our skybox and enjoyed some togetherness and I got my daily treat (and Mistress got her’s). And at night was our regular Friday night party. Virgo selected cowgirls and bowboys as a theme and she even rezzed a cow on the dancefloor.

May17th – Friday night party

We had fun. Even slave Flo wore at cowgirl hat, a quite individual pink & yellow latex cowgirl outfit. We had fun again starting into our weekend.

Simploring 2019 (46) Hotel California

For my simploring tour on Tuesday, April 2nd, I picked Hotel California from scoop.it SL Destinations. What attracted me was the name of course. We once had a little private prison, that we called Hotel California because of the song from the Eagles with the same name “You can checkout any time you like, but you can never leave!”

Anyway, this Hotel California has nothing to do with it at all! In the landmark profile it is described as “A war torn land fighting it’s way back to beauty. Life always finds a way.” and it is tagged with “Photography, Scenic, Landscape, Photo, Art, Photographer, Country, Apocalypse, War, Apocalyptic, Garden, Vintage, Travel, Explore

Hotel California – overview

Hotel California is an adult sim owned by Lex Machine (schmexysbuddy) and it is a piece of land clearly torn by war. But the war seems to be over for a long time already and nature takes the land back. This offers quite some opportunities for particular pictures and extraordinairy views.

Hotel California – Landing point and hotel

The landing is on a destroyed bridge, one end is broken, the other leads to a hotel. Strangely the illuminated advertising is still working but the hotel itself is empty, abandoned for a long time already, bushes and weed grow from every crack in the walls. In the open patio, there’s still a table and a few chairs. Many birds fly around the hotel, they seem to have their nests here. Very odd is the small motor bike parked in front of the hotel. The whole area seems to be abandoned, who is living here?

Hotel California – Ruins in the water with “soldiers”

After exploring the hotel I went down to the shore to have a look at the 2 big ruins that peek out of the sea. I came across an old rusty tank wreck and then saw a group of statues in the water, like soldiers that run to the shore to occupy it, or do they flea from the ruins? The statues are not soldiers, they reminded me a bit of those from Mistero Hifeng. The tank wreck, the “soldiers” and the two ruins build an artful installation. I climbed on the ruins, there’s really not much left but concrete and steel. At one corner a huge octopussy peeks out with it’s long tentacles.

Hotel California – Gazebo, plane wreck and other impressions

There’re some more ruins on Hotel California, just 2 buildings are not destroyed, one is a gazebo at the shore and the other one is a large wooden residential home. I went inside of the residential home, all rooms are empty. The only room that isn’t empty is a greenhouse, which is full of plants. On the meadows next to this house animals are grazing peacefully. Strange enough that after some exploring the atmosphere doesn’t seem so violent anymore, despite of all the ruins and leftovers from a war.

Hotel California – Abandoned house

Next to the house I noticed an entrance to something in the underground. It turned out being a bunker and it is the only room that is furnished and there’s someone living in it obviously.

Hotel California – Bunker and other impressions

Hotel California is an one of a kind sim, the ruins in the water with the “soldiers” is a piece of art, the rest of the sim is strangely peaceful … “life always finds a way“.
Thank you Lex for sharing the sim with the public.

Simploring 2019 (39) Baroqued Orientilika

For my short simploring tour on Monday, March 18th, I picked Baroqued Orientilika from scoop.it SL Destinations mostly because that there was no information about the place, just a picture and Japanese characters.

Impressions of Baroqued Orientilika – Shopping in Japan (1)

Baroqued Orientilika is owned by Kamo. It is a complex of 8 identical 3 stories Japanese buildings arranged in 2 rows with 4 buildings each. The buildings are surrounded by an alley of cherry trees on 2 sides, by altars, buddhas, arches and statues of elefants on one side, and on one side by an entrance building with 2 high rise temples on each side. It’s an impressive complex – held mostly in red and very Japanese.

And what is it about? It’s shopping mall, a place to take pictures, an a place to meet. I don’t know if it is a temporary event mall or if it is a permanent mall, I assume it’s open for a limited time.

Impressions of Baroqued Orientilika – Shopping in Japan (2)

The shops are only on the ground level and they are all decorated very well and not just vendors. There are a lot shop spaces that are fill with photo scenes for taking solo pictures or couple pictures within a 3D environment. I didn’t count them, but there’re quite a few.

Last but not least, it’s fun to explore what’s around the 8 buildings, the many temples and the elephants. There’re also some possibilities to sit and chat (with your friends after shopping *winks*) and the cherry alley is really nice and inviting for taking pictures.

As I can’t read nor speak Japanese, I couldn’t find out more about Baroqued Orientilika. But it is refreshing different to the shopping malls, that I saw in Second Life so for. Have a look yourself 🙂
