Otter Lake

OtterLake

Seraphim decided to check out Otter Lake, this morning. She found a very North American/European-feeling environment of beautiful, rich blues and greens, with a gorgeous, soft, cloudy/hazy sky, creating a lovely, soft light…

OtterLake2

… the landing point was a commercial harbour. Everywhere there were great props for clever photographs, lots of wonderful angles and rich, dark hues…

OtterLake3

… but it was the wilderness area that Seri really liked. Lots and lots of beautiful, sparkling water-filled vistas, with pretty islands…

OtterLake4

… lush plant/tree growth everywhere…

OtterLake5

… with gorgeous explosions of floral colour dotted about, and many more wonderful photo props…

OtterLake6

… and many beautiful light rays in which to pose…

OtterLake7

… Seri didn’t manage to find a lake filled with otters, she got a bit lost, then some guy started stalking her, and getting in her shots, so she went home, satisfied she had enough stunning images for at least this post. Otter Lake is really gorgeous, well worth a look (:

Shadow Syndicate

ShadowSyndicate

If you know Seri, you’ll have noticed she has an addictive personality… she locks onto things, and obsesses over them, till something else attracts her attention… and, currently, it’s arcade games…

ShadowSyndicate2

… she just acquired another one for her game corner. Unlike the previous two, this one isn’t posable… but, it makes up for that by being, actually, playable! It’s called Shadow Syndicate, and is made by Tokugawa Heavy Industries, a creator who, ironically, is the creator of one of Seri’s favourite jackets, and, probably, her all-time favourite glasses, ┬ábut, who generally makes scifi-techy stuff…

ShadowSyndicate3

… the game is a homage to 80’s video games and, as someone whose human was an adult in the 80’s, Seraphim can testify to the gorgeous acuity of the homage…

ShadowSyndicate4

… you also get this poster with the game…

ShadowSyndicate5

… you start the game, and get a series of loading screens…

ShadowSyndicate6

… until you arrive at this rain-soaked alley…

ShadowSyndicate7

… where this guy suddenly appears before you, and your fists come up. You are meant to hit him before he shoots you, and, apparently, that allows you to beat him and progress through the game…

ShadowSyndicate8

… unfortunately, because you only have a split second to react, and Seri was busy taking pictures, she always got killed! She’d then have to restart the game, and run through everything, again, trying to get the best images… by the time she had enough, she was over it, and hasn’t actually played Shadow Syndicate, yet! But, she will (:

Heart-rending Koala Rescue

KoalaHug

Seraphim read this, this morning. The video clip, at the top, of Toni rescuing a literally burning Koala, just made her cry and cry. The whole story about the losses the Koala population have suffered is equally heart-rending… but that one scene, of that wonderful woman putting the burning Koala out with water from a bottle, and him wailing in pain… it just kind of encapsulates the sadness of the whole situation.

They named the little guy ‘Lewis’, and he survived, thanks to that amazing, brave woman (:

Salt Water

SaltWater

Seraphim visited the ‘Salt Water’ sim, yesterday. She arrived in a torrential, thundery tropical downpour…

SaltWater2

… but, once she got clear of the landing zone, the rain disappeared, and she was in a beautiful, pre-twilight paradise…

SaltWater3

… she made her way down to the shore…

SaltWater4

… the sun was arrested at sunset…

SaltWater5

… and the clouds were in constant motion across it’s blazing face…

SaltWater6

… the sea was awash with golds, reds, and yellows…

SaltWater7

… and seabirds wheeled above the waves.

Pandume Portrait

PaniPortraitPost09072018_0001

Seraphim took hundreds of pictures of Pandume. She really likes these three…

PaniPortraitPost09072018_0002

… Seraphim has known Pandume a few years, now. When they first met, Pandume was a fire-demon… she was literally made of molten, burning magma, and she floated above the ground, and did lazy flips… she was definitely in the 2% of extreme avatar incarnations…

PaniPortraitPost09072018_0003

… although she has always had the same, lovely personality, Seraphim by far prefers Pandume’s current incarnation (:

 

Seraphim & Pandume

Seri&Pani

Seraphim hasn’t seen her lovely, demon friend, Pandume, for months. The two of them have crossed paths, via IM, during that time, but today was the first time they’d actually hung out together for ages…

Seri&Pani2

… so, of course, it made perfect sense that they spent quality time together in Seri’s new game corner, which Pandume hadn’t seen. Pandume has changed her look, now sporting an extremely impressive array of horns…

Seri&Pani3

… the two friends talked about all kinds of stuff, including missing friends of Seraphim…

Seri&Pani4

… whilst they both hammered away at Unicorn Attack, and Ninja Kittens…

Seri&Pani5

… till Seri decided it was time to drag Pandume away…

Seri&Pani6

… and get her in the photo booth, so she could take a decent profile picture for her. Seraphim thinks Pandume is gorgeous… like a young, demonic Mona Lisa (:
