Art in Second Life 2020 (27) Extempore Gallery and Lounge

After my blogpost about the April exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli (read here) I had contact with one of the artists who were featured in this exhibition – Etamae.
Etamae is from the UK and began taking photographs and then turning those photographs into digital art in 2018.
Her first passion was erotic art and I had come across Etamae in 2019 the first time when I visited her exhibtion “Dominance and Submission” at Elevate Femdom (see here).

And more of etamae’s erotic art can be seen at Eta’s Feed Your Fetish Gallery which is “a little edgy, somewhat sensual centered about the erotic and the BDSM lifestyle” and hence does fit to my personal passion. On Monday, April 27th, I visited Eta’s Feed Your Fetish Gallery (see my blogpost here).

Besides owning Eta’s Feed Your Fetish Gallery Etamae owns two other galleries and I visited one of them on Thursday April 30th: The Extempore Gallery and Lounge.

Extempore Gallery and Lounge – impressions of etamae’s own art

At the Extempore Gallery and Lounge Etamae showcases pictures taken in Second Life and manipulated in particular by recolouring and adding light effects to them as well as some animated permantently changing pictures. Etamae is not defined by just one style or area of art, she plays with different patterns and tries herself out in a broader spectrum of art.

At the Extempore Gallery and Lounge Etamae not only showcases her own art but provides the space also to other artists. At the time of my visit the gallery featured also the art from: CybeleMoon (hana.hoobinoo), Patrick Moya, Sophie Marie Sinclair (perpetua1010), Aneli Abeyante, Jipe Loon, Patrick Ireland (PatrickofIreland), Harry Cover (impossibleisnotfrench) and Safar Fiertze.

Extempore Gallery and Lounge – impressions of Patrick Moya’s art

I saw already some of Patrick Moya (moja janus)’s art. I came across him in 2017 when I visited his Moya Land (read Simploring 2017 (56) Moya).
Patrick Moya (born 1955 in Troyes, France), is a French artist. He is a part of the artistic movement “Ecole de Nice”. Moya has been at the forefront since the 1970s of straddling the latest forms of media and technology to benefit art rather than rendering it extinct.
(excerpt from wikipedia).
He is an early pioneer of video art and is active with his art in Second Life since 2007 in addition to his work in the physical world. The barriers between the two worlds do blur in his artistic work. Moya Patrick (moya janus) has also a website http://moyapatrick.com/ with tons of information about his work and about Moya in Second Life. Unfortunately it is in French only.
At the Extempore Gallery and Lounge we see examples and drafts of at Moya label in many different variations. I’m not sure, but somehow it felt familiar, I might have seen some ot the exhibits already before

Extempore Gallery and Lounge – impressions of CybeleMoon (hana.hoobinoo)’s art

I also came across CybeleMoon or Hana Hoobinoo already a few times, the last time when I visited “The Itakos Project and Art Gallery“ (read here). Cybele’s picture always have a fantasy background and often show portraits or people in a peaceful, mostly hazy fantasy world. Her pictures seem to tell a story, that you have to make up yourself.

Extempore Gallery and Lounge – impressions of Sophie Marie Sinclair (perpetua1010)’s art

Sophie Marie Sinclair is a RL painter and book author. She mainly paints nude from models and abstract art. She loves to experiment with different kind of paint and lithography. She has made several book illustrations and was for many years political cartoonist for a well known satire magazine. She lived and worked in the Unites States, Australia, Rome and Monaco.
At Extempore Gallery and Lounge you can see some of her “Inpirations in Red”, powerful paintings in red with a fantastic 3D-effect.

Extempore Gallery and Lounge – impressions of Aneli Abeyante and Jipe Loon’s art

Aneli Abeyante, who runs La Maison d’Aneli, creates objects in 2D and 3D, colourful, steadily moving, and with particular light effects. Aneli writes about herself:
I love geometry and mathematics. So after much practice, I managed to clear structures and shapes. In reality I practice painting, I do not have precise style but I always seek harmonization.”
Some of the Aneli’s work exhibited at Extempore Gallery and Lounge was already shown at La Maison d’Aneli in January/February 2020 (see my blogpost here). You see geometrical shapes with one dominating colour. Most of the displays as constantly changing.

The 3D figures that are showcase in the area of the staircase were created by Jipe Loon, erotic figures, truely exaggerated yet intriguing. Jipe is in Second Life for more than 12 years and he sells his creations on the marketplace. I came across some of his figures already before in the frame of my simploring tours, but I never saw more than one, yet at Extempore Gallery and Lounge you see a few of them.

Extempore Gallery and Lounge – impressions of Patrick Ireland (PatrickofIreland)’s art

When I visited “The Itakos Project and Art Gallery“ (read here) I saw an exhibition of Partick Ireland’s art but I couldn’t find any information about him. Patrick’s art, surrealism pure, is shown also at Extempore Gallery and Lounge, but there was a notecard with a bit more information, including his SL name PatrickofIreland:
Originally in SL in 2008 and recently back after a hiatus of many years, Patrick found his passion for SL photography a little more than a year ago. In this short time, he has become a prolific SL photographer known for his detailed sets and desire to share the joy of his many interests, including surreal subjects, Asian art and philosophy, civic issues and, of course, love.

Extempore Gallery and Lounge – impressions of Harry Cover (impossibleisnotfrench) and Safar Fiertze’s art

Harry Cover, also known as Impossibleisnotfrench, is from France. He started his second life by playing with prims, then sculpties and finally mesh (Blender). He’s passionate about photos and  graphic designer in RL (among others). One of his objects – Statue vis ecrou all inone – can also be found at my home *winks*. Harry also works with Serene Footman, who creates sims after real places, you’d usually never come across exploring the world as a tourist. He creates landmark buildings for Serene and I mentioned him several times already when I wrote about Serene Footman’s weired outstanding places.

Safar Fiertze has two installations at Extempore Gallery and Lounge. She’s in SL for almost 12 years and writes about herself: “I love labyrinths and labyrinthian minds. I like the artistic and innovative juxtaposition of words. I’ve discovered the joys of juxtaposing prims
Baletka is an interactive story experience at Extempore Gallery and Lounge loosely inspired by an R.D. Laing case study. You can walk through the story and see Safar’s 3D art.
There’s a second installation of Safar Fiertze “Mechanical Apparition of Emergent Dream” where you can interact with bouncing balls, which reproduce themselves – intriguing.

My spontaneous visit to Extempore Gallery and Lounge became longer than I thought. I had fun seeing it and I enjoyed the art from artists who I came across before again. Thank you etamae for providing and curating your Gallery. I had only one more gallery from etamae to visit “Etamae’s gallery at Absolute Bliss” and I tried Saturday, May 2nd .. but it is gone or the Landmark I had was invalid,

Simploring 2020 (36) Hotel del Salto

For my simploring tour Thursday, May 7th, I picked Hotel del Salto from scoop.it SL Destinations. Hotel del Salto in Second Life is owned by Jade Koltai who also designed this place on a moderate homestead.
Jade Koltai built many extraordinairy places together with Serene Footman, places you usually never get to, weired and outstanding places with history. They both now make their own designs (at least for the time being). Last year I visited Huntington Beach by Jade Koltai and I was excited about it (read here).

To say it right in the beginning. I am also excited about Hotel del Salto. Once again it is a place in Second Life that was built after a place in the physical world. It is “a hotel built in 1923 by a French architect with a view of a waterfall, being also the discharge of the sewers of Bogota in Colombia. Other legends haunt this place” (landmark description)

Hotel del Salto – overview / at the landing point

The Hotel Del Salto was previously built as a mansion in 1923. The architect who added the magnificence to the design of the Mansion was Carlos Arturo Tapias. The exterior was designed by using French architecture. In 1928 the Mansion was rebuilt as a luxurious Hotel Del Salto. The major reason to build this hotel was to attract the well-off travellers visiting the amazing Tequendama Falls. (source: worldfortravel) The Tequendama Falls (Spanish: Salto del Tequendama) is a 132 metres (433 ft) high waterfall of the Bogotá River, located 32 kilometres (20 mi) southwest of Bogotá (source: wikipedia).

Hotel del Salto and Tequendama Falls, Columbia

The hotel was abandoned in the 1990ies most probably because of the smell of the Bogotá River, which was one of the dirtiest rivers in the world. But there were also stories that the hotel was  haunted maybe because the waterfalls also attracted people who committed suicide.
Nowadays the Hotel del Salto is a museum for biodiversity and it is again a tourist attraction.

WoW … the first impression when you land on the street that leads to the hotel is already overwhelming. You see this outstanding building on the edge of a deep canyon, the moutains in the background, the atmosphere is a bit hazy, the nature is flourishing.

Jade built the hotel not in its state of today but as the ruin that it was for many years. The nature has taken back the building, grass is growing through the cracks of the ground, windows are broken, ceilings broken. Nonetheless when you go inside you can still grasp how luxurious it once was.

Hotel del Salto – outside and inside

Hotel del Salto – inside

But that is by far not all. Exploring the waterfalls and the canyon is great fun and from what I saw on pictures of the real place, it is quite well how it looks in reality. But in Second life you can hike without any danger of falling. From the hotel stairs lead down into the canyon. On the half way down is the first lookout to the waterfalls and it is a really nice play to stay and take a break.

Hotel del Salto – Impressions of exploring the Canyon (1)

You can decide to continue your walk over the high bridge or further down to the canyon. I went down first and enjoyed the view looking up. And I went very close to the waterfall and literally got wet by the spray of the falls. In the canyon there’s another terrace which was well visited during my visit.

Hotel del Salto – Impressions of exploring the Canyon (2)

Walking over the high bridge takes you the the opposed side of the hotel and there’re again several outlooks. At one I stayed a bit longer and even had a short conversation amoung tourists with a guy who sat there enjoying the view. I couldn’t get enough of this canyon and the views!

Hotel del Salto – a break with view on the falls

I went back to the hotel and walked to the side opposed to the falls. And there I found another outlook, well hidden by dense bushes. That’s “my” place there *winks*.

Hotel del Salto – more impressions and my favourite spot

I recommend to read about the Tequendama Falls and about the hotel (a good first source is the text in worldfortravel or the website of thevintagenews that is mentioned in the landmark description) before you visit. It will add to your experience when you visit Hotel del Salto in Second Life.

Thank you Jade for another great place, that I might never see in reality. But now I feel as if I’ve been there already. What a great trip in these crazy times.

Diary 2020 (54) April 13th/14th Varied Days

I had a quite varied day in Second Life on Monday, April 13th. I was inworld in the late morning and went to Heavy Bondage Club. slave Luci joined me there and I had fun watching people and reading profiles while tieing her up and restricting her.

April 13th: Diomita and slave Luci at Heavy Bondage Club / Impressions of Kohlmannskuppe in Second Life

In the afternoon I went on a simploring tour as Mistress Jenny wasn’t inworld yet. I went to Kohlmannskuppe, “a ghost town and tourist destination in southern Namibia. Once a thriving diamond mine and one of the richest towns in Africa, the abandoned buildings are now being swallowed by the Namib desert.” It was built by Serene Footman and opened just a few days before. I spent quite some time there exploring and later had quite some pictures to sort and writing the simploring report took also time but was fun (read Simploring 2020 (29) Kohlmannskuppe if you haven’t read it yet). Yasminia, the sim where Kohlmannskuppe is built on, was once kind of my second home in Second Life about 10 years ago and it is already the second time that I visited it on my simploring tours with a totally different design. What a coincidence!

I met Mistress Jenny shortly while I was simploring. She had a busy day and came inworld just to say hello and to avoid making me wait, then she left again.

April 13th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at home and at Mesmerize Dungeon with slave Flo and slave Gwendi / at club De Lust and at home in our skybox saying good night.

At night slave Flo and slave Gwendi were present and they had been trying the Easter hunt prize that slave Flo got the day before. After having a busy day Mistress was up for a game and we played a round of skipee as teams again. We sat differently this time to avoid that the chairs we use to sit on make the difference. It was a close game and hence we could enjoy it. We had some time left over and went to Mesmerize Dungeon until flotime. The slaves went to bed and Mistress and I chilled 15 minutes at club DeLust. It was very full, as a matter of fact Second Life is quite full lately due to all of our real lifes where everybody has to stay at home.
Mistress Jenny and I went home and to bed quite early.

Tuesday, April 14th, I wanted to meet Mistress in the afternoon, yet she didn’t show up due to her RL. I went a bit simhopping and ended at the House of Sensations. I was all alone there and looked for new equipment and found new equipment. Being naughty I tried another Shibari rope furniture and I made some pictures of naughty me *winks*

April 14th: Diomita in Shibari ropes at the House of Sensations

At night I ran late and Mistress Jenny, slave Gwendi, slave Flo and Ann were present. After saying hello, slave Gwendi went off to bed as she was very tired. We took slave Flo and Ann to Mesmerize Dungeon where we watched, chatted, read some profiles and where I caught up with Mistress Jenny about our mutual news RL and SL. slave slut cecy joined us at Mesmerize Dungeon as well. When Ann changed into her rubber doll outfit I couldn’t refrain from taking control and locked and leashed her. Time went by quickly and at flotime we returned home and tucked slave Flo in. We went to Psi’s realm and leashed slut cecy there and retreated to our loft skybox.

April 14th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita with Ann, slave Flo and slave cecy at Mesmerize Dungeon, at home and at Psi’s realm / Mistress Jenny and Diomita in our loft skybox

There Mistress allowed me to get my fix before we went off to bed. Thank you, Mistress Jenny.

Simploring 2020 (29) Kohlmannskuppe

Just in time for Easter Serene Footman opened his new sim “Kohlmannskuppe” taking us to “a ghost town and tourist destination in southern Namibia. Once a thriving diamond mine and one of the richest towns in Africa, the abandoned buildings are now being swallowed by the Namib desert.

Kohlmannskuppe was given up in 1956. Serene has done a very detailed resarch about the history of Kohlmannskuppe, he studied pictures taken today and historic pictures. He researched the history of the place and it’s current state as the town is flooded with sand. He gives us some insight into the era when Kohlmannskuppe flourished as a diamond mine during the time of the colonial power of Germany in the early 20th century.

Impressions of Kohlmannskuppe in Second Life (1) – the entrance building / around the landing point

He rebuilt some of the most outstanding buildings that are still existent, first and foremost the Kasino with it’s theater room but also others like the ice factory that provided the community with ice for their fridges. He also rebuilt some residential houses and – with all artistic freedom – gave them the look and feeling of how they look today and back in the early 20th century.

I strongly recommend to read Serene’s own blogpost “Kolmannskuppe – The Ghost Town of Namib Desert” before visiting. It will enhance your experience. Another good source is the entry about Kohlmannskuppe in wikipedia here.

Impressions of Kohlmannskuppe in Second Life (2) – The Kasino with theatre room and cafe

 

Impressions of Kohlmannskuppe in Second Life (3) – ice factory, bakery and a barrack

In his blogpost Serene also wrote about the buildings you see at Kohlmannskuppe in Second Life and who helped to create what we can now experience virtually: “Directly opposite the Kasino, you will find the teacher’s house, for which I have utilised the prefab brilliantly created by Milk Motion (Marie Lauridsen). This building has those richly coloured walls one finds in so many photographs of the real Kolmannskuppe.

There are more very interesting details in Kohlmannskuppe like the tram that was used to transport water from one end of the town to the other. The tram that you can see was built “in a collaborative effort with Harry Cover (impossibleisnotfrench), who helped with the tram’s seats and brakes. Harry also helped out by meshing the quirky little diamond retrieval machine that sits next to the Kasino building.

Impressions of Kohlmannskuppe in Second Life (4) – account house / around the tram station

At the 2nd floor of the Kasino building you will find a small gift shop, with custom-made postcards, posters, and tee shirts for sale, as well as a museum area.

Impressions of Kohlmannskuppe in Second Life (5) – the bowling at the 2nd floor of the Kasino / behind the Kasino/ desert camp and wildlife

But there’s a lot more to explore and discover like original boards in several languages spread over the sim. These boards are really there in reality, in particular the one to protect the brown hyenas. Serene also added some animals quite rarely seen in Second Life, “such as Bighorn sheep, Gemsbock (aka Oryx), Sable Antelope, Wildebeest” and the above mentioned Hyenas.
I want to mention the big pool, nowadays filled with sand. This pool was really there and it played an important role for the community.

Impressions of Kohlmannskuppe in Second Life (6) – Hospital ruins / pool and water storage

Don’t miss seeing the 2 colonial houses that witness the former wealth of Kohlmannskuppe. You can walk inside and as opposed to reality, going in is safe! You find the leftovers of the former residents, some look like they just left like the kids toys in one of them or the sewing machine, some other leftovers are just rubbish.

Impressions of Kohlmannskuppe in Second Life (7) – Colonial house, witness of former wealth

As usual in Serene’s installations you find many opportunities to sit and watch on furniture that is not that inviting, but fits to the scenery.

Once again Serene Footman took us to a place that most of us will never see in reality and can be experienced now virtually for a limited time. During times where we all can’t travel in the physcial world – take the opportunity to travel to Kohlmannskuppe.

Impressions of Kohlmannskuppe in Second Life (8) – Colonial house, witness of former wealth

Thank you very much for this Easter present, Serene. I enjoyed my visit a lot and I took tons of pictures. One personal remark: Yasminia, the sim where Kohlmannskuppe is built on, was once kind of my second home in Second Life about 10 years ago and it is already the second time that I visited it on my simploring tours with a totally different design. What a coincidence!

Simploring 2020 (18) Ubay Island

Today I came across Ubay Island and I should have noticed it before. With closing his summer version of Khodovarikha (read Simploring 2020 (13) Welcome back, Slava – Khodovarikha in Summer) Serene Footman has opened up another place: Ubay Island.

Serene Footman’s Ubay Island – overview

I strongly recommend reading Serene’s blogpost about this place in his blog here before you visit. Ubay Island is in the province of Bohol, Philippines, flooded due to climate change and the 2013 earthquake. It has an area of 1,5 hectares and a population of 223.

Impressions of Ubay Island (1) – upper left is the basketball court at the landing

Serene describes the living conditions on Ubay Island in his blog. It is absolutely astonishing how people manage to live there with wet feet getting flooded with each high tide. Serene has two short video’s in his blogpost. Don’t miss watching them. I promise you’ll get a different view on what you see in Second Life.

Impressions of Ubay Island (2) – discovering by boat

Serene has added some spots from the real Ubay Island into his Second Life version of it. I want to mention the basketball court right where you land when visiting Ubay Island (This is where we play) and the ruined building admist the sea, that is used by children as jumping and diving platform. This building has been realized by Harry Cover (Impossibleisnotfrench).

Impressions of Ubay Island (3) – the school and the church

There are swamps close by just as in the real place and hidden in them is a shack that is dedciated to another aspect of the local culture: Filipino folk magic, known as Kulam or ‘Pagkukulam’ (look it up on wikipedia)

Impressions of Ubay Island (4) – the ruined Building used as a jumping platform and the Kulam house in the swamp

Needless to say that Serene has added a lot of details to discover! The huts are mostly furnished, you find countless opportunities to sit and look around. There’s also a boat rental so that you can discover the swamps without getting wet feet. And for our convenience Serene has built wooden walks to get around in the village.

Impressions of Ubay Island (5)

Once again I learned something new and saw a place that I never would have come across without Serene’s Second Life installation. Don’t miss out seeing it. As ususal this place won’t be available very long. Thank you very much, Serene!

Simploring 2020 (13) Welcome back, Slava – Khodovarikha in Summer

Yesterday, Wednesday February 19th, I came across Khodovarikha again when scrolling through scoop.it SL Destinations. I visited this extreme lonely place back in October 2017 (see Simploring 2017 (80) Khodovarikha).

Khodovarikha (in Russian: Ходовариха) is a weather station located on the freezing Barents Sea. Remote and desolate, with a permanent population of just one man, Slava. Witness his ‘arctic limbo’ in one of the loneliest places on earth. Once Khodovarikha was a village and there are a number of buildings scattered around on the sim. The most striking is the lighthouse, built in 1933 and decommissioned in 1996. It is made of timber, which Slava is cannibalising for firewood, and sits high up on a raised section of the land.

Serene Footman, who has a passion for unknown, strange and outstanding places, had brought Khodovarikha alive in Second Life and gathered a lot of information about it so that we could get an impression of it – and not only by reading about it in his blog (read here) and watching a video but also by exploring it in Second Life and thus getting a feeling for the place. That all was back in 2017 and as Serene’s places are temporar and stay about one month (some stay longer, some shorter) Khodovarikha is gone for more than 2 years now.

Khodovarikha in Summer – birds eye view

Welcome back, Slava – Serene Footman has reopened Khodovarikha on Saturday, February 15th. The first Khodovarikha was set up in Winter, the one we can see now is giving us an impression of it during Summer. In the above mentioned video we see that Khodovarikha is a real mess. Serene writes in his new blogpost: “the windswept sand is littered with barrels and crates, as well as miscellaneous bits of rusty salvage. I have often wondered about those barrels – why are there so many of them, and why are they left lying around, quite literally, everywhere … I have wanted to design a summer version of Khodovarikha ever since closing the sim in December 2017.”

Impressions of Khodovarikha in Summer (1) – the “new” abandonned house

When creating Khodovarikha in Summer, Serene added a lot of life, in particular birds, many many birds and thus the place is full of life. As opposed to the first place, the lighthouse is not working anymore this time (like in reality). Serene has found more information about Khodovarikha, in particular he learned that the lighthouse was also used as a place for fun and sports back when Khodovarikha was still a village with at least some more inhabitants and even children. That is why Serene installed a zip line from the top of the lighthouse to the ground – and provides the fun for us visitors as well!

Impressions of Khodovarikha in Summer (2) – climbing up the lighthouse

There’s really a lot to see, explore and to discover at Khodovarikha. I started my visit with exploring the “new” abandoned house close to the lighthouse. Yes, as described by Serene and as could be expected it is a whole mess inside. I sat down close by and enjoyed the strange atmosphere. All over the sim you find places to sit, just that you can breath in the atmosphere of the place. And birds, birds, birds. They have taken over Khodovarikha.

Of course I climbed up to the top of the lighthouse. At one level on your way up you can watch a slideshow with pictures of the real Khodovarikha. Using the zip line is fun by the way.

Impressions of Khodovarikha in Summer (3) – birds, brids, birds

Did I already mention the many birds? The are also noisy (don’t forget to turn your sound on). One larger colony of them is by the water where they have occupied the rocks. Another colony occupied a small pond. I didn’t change the windlight. This ensures that the place still looks not inviting but facinating in its depressiveness despite of all the birds and the corners where you can blind out all the barrels and garbage spread all over of the sim.

Impressions of Khodovarikha in Summer (4) – Ustin’s and Slava’s house

I visited Ustin’s house as well as Slava main living house. I don’t remember the kitchen in the 1st Khodovarikha, but it caught my attention this time. What a mess! It’s hard to believe that someone can live with such a mess (and dirt).

Impressions of Khodovarikha in Summer (5) – the pier, Slava’s garage and other impressions

I also can’t remember that there was a pier and a boat in the 1st Khodovarikha. And for sure Khodovarikha offers may more opportunities to sit and watch this time. That makes sense as it is Summer but on the other hand I can’t imagine that Slava would clean up the place in Winter and bring all the stools and sofas back into his storage garage *winks*.

Finally I played a bit with the windlight and created a sunnier Summer day. This changed the atmosphere a lot! It swept away the melancholy on one side, on the other side the mess and all the garbage are more disturbing the peace.

Impressions of Khodovarikha in Summer (5) – just imagine the sun would shine at Khodovarikha

If you want to visit yourself, you shouldn’t wait to long with a visit as Khodovarika will only stay available for a few weeks.
Thank you so much for realizing Khodovarikha in Summer, Serene. I had a lot of fun exploring and learning more about this strange and outstanding place.

Diary 2019 (194) December 14th/15th Relaxed Weekend

I went on a longer simploring tour Saturday, December 14th, and visited “Let it Snow! A Winter Wonderland” (read also yesterday’s post). I had fun exploring it, really a Winter Wonderland! I was about to finish my visit when Kitty came online. What a surprise. I summoned her to me and we danced in this romantic environment, we caught up just a bit. Mistress Jenny, who meets Kitty more often than I do, keeps filling me in about Kitty’s news.

December 14th: Diomita and Kitty dancing at “Let it Snow!”

At night I first spent some time at club Domme a Domme where Ann found and joined me. I took control and tied her up in her doll suit. I noticed slave Flo coming online and called her. She had started a game of skipee (alone, so that she wins *winks*). I went home with Ann and soon after slave Gwendi and Mistress came inworld. slave Gwendi had been sick a few days and we were happy having her back. After Flo had won her game (surprise, surprise), we went to Mesmerize Dungeon for about an hour. Mistress and I caught up with our mutual news, we talked about the upcoming holidays, we teased the slaves and had fun. And slave Flo and slave Gwendi had fun teasing Ann as their future sister slave.

December 14th: Diomita and Ann at club Domme a Domme / Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Mesmerize Dungeon with slave Flo, slave Gwendi and Ann

Back home we played a round of greedy, then it was time for Mistress Jenny and slave Flo to leave. I tucked Mistress Jenny in and went to bed early myself.

I had quite some time inworld on Sunday, December 15th. I went visiting Lairig Leacach  (see Simploring 2019 (126) Lairig Leacach) first. It is Serene Footman’s particular holiday sim and outstanding as all of his work. Once again, Kitty came inworld when I was about to leave, but this time I really had to leave.

 

Lairig Leacach

To my surprise Kitty was online when I returned in the afternoon. Now she was about to leave but I could convince her to come home and to meet me and slave Gwendi. I took a fwe pictures of us 🙂

After Kitty had left I took slave Gwendi with me to Heavy Bondage Club. slave Gwendi was more or less absent and I had some distractions of RL as well. Our former slave Dana called me and I summoned her to us. She’s was quite restricted and still searches her place in SL while causing trouble and having fun. We caught up a little but, then I had to leave for dinner.

At night Mistress Jenny, slave Gwendi, slave Flo and I had 2 rounds of greedy first, then we went to club DeLust where we spent the night. slave Gwendi danced for us, slave Flo decorated us well and slave slut cecy showed up later and danced for us as well. We had a very relaxed night together with the slaves and it was crowned with tongetherness at our skybox after the slaves had left.
