Ethereal

cyberfae

Seraphim visited Ethereal, today. One of the first things she saw, after noticing the gorgeous colours…

cyberfae2

… was this absolutely adorable greeter-bot…

cyberfae3

… it was by far the cutest bot Seraphim has seen, so cute she wished it was a real avi, so she could tell it how sweet it was…

cyberfae4

… what Seraphim saw of the Ethereal sim was a psychedelic kaleidoscope of colour and gorgeous, alien foliage…

cyberfae5

… it was all like a faerie’s dream…

cyberfae6

… very soothing and pretty.

ChatuChak

ChatuChak

After reading Alexa’s recent post on ChatuChak, yesterday, Seraphim decided to have a look, too…

ChatuChak2

… you arrive in one of those colourful, Asian markets, where trains run dangerously close through the marketplace…

ChatuChak3

… following the rails takes you out of the first market, which is mostly manufactured items, into the woods, and onto a bridge, where the train appears to have stalled before a tunnel…

ChatuChak4

… just before the bridge, there is a path down through the rocks and trees…

ChatuChak5

… that brings you to the equally colourful produce market, on the docks…

ChatuChak6

… which are piled with delicious, fresh produce…

ChatuChak7

… birds wheel about the docks… there are no people… this gives the place the feel of having been suddenly deserted, like, only minutes/hours before…

ChatuChak8

… Seraphim wondered what could have caused everyone to vanish… was she walking amongst an invisible, deadly viral contagion? Not being human, and immune to anything deadly to humans, she wasn’t too worried… was the place highly radioactive? She didn’t have a gieger counter on her, so couldn’t check… again, radiation isn’t something she worries about… the birds seemed active enough. Anyway, she got some nice pictures (:

 

Busy Day

Busy Day

Seraphim had a productive day, today. She hung her latest work in her new ‘Dream’ series in her gallery, this one is called ‘Shore of Dreams’, and she hung it next to ‘View From a Dream’. She has also hung these images in the Montmartre gallery, but she’s not sure what’s happening with that, yet, as the owner seems fairly non-communicative after her initial friendliness, or perhaps she’s just too busy to reply to Seraphim’s IM’s, Seri isn’t sure…

Busy Day2

… Seraphim loves seeing her work this size, having worked on it on a computer screen, it’s like giving life to the image to see it bigger than herself on a wall…

Busy Day3

… she spent some time looking at one of her pictures of Tee… it almost seems like another lifetime ago, that she hung out with Gynoids, and basically lived to photograph them, it feels like that part of her life is over, now…

Busy Day4

… from her gallery, she went to the Culprit mainstore, in search of something she’d seen in one of Inara Pey’s post’s. She’d just arrived there, when the above avi, Rei2 Aya, TP’d in beside her. Seraphim always notices cute avi’s, and usually takes a few pictures of them, and often checks their profile, to get a feel for whether they would mind her saying ‘hi’ to them… to Seri’s delight, when she checked Rei2’s profile, she discovered that Rei2 was the owner of R2 Fashion! Although she never wears it, herself, Seraphim adores R2 Fashion’s work, and has bought several outfits for her Gynoid girlfriends. Seraphim complimented Rei2 on her cute outfit, not really expecting a reply, but was pleasantly surprised that the two of them had a very nice conversation, where Seraphim was equally pleased at herself for not fawning/grovelling over someone of such talent!…

Busy Day5

… the reason Seraphim went to Culprit was to buy this Moonwalker she had seen in Inara’s post…

Busy Day6

… Seraphim loves Culprit stuff, and has a lot of it. The Moonwalker was not only really cute, but, at L$100, an extremely good buy. After that, after reading about ChatuChak in one of Alexa’s posts, she went there, but that will have to be a whole seperate post, as she took lots of pictures…

Busy Day7

… after ChatuChak, she went to the Hello Kitty 45th Anniversary by Astralia event, where she bought two outfits, a pink and a black one, mainly for the gorgeous pants…

Busy Day8

… which have ‘Hello Kitty’ down the seams. Seraphim’s kitten-in-a-balloon meowed her approval as she drifted by (:

Aurora City

DudGates

Seraphim visited Aurora City, today. Aurora City is billed as ‘ …a British, Dieselpunk, and Sci-fi themed region with retro-futurist elements…’. Seraphim found a fairly cheesy mish-mash of cliche scifi themes (starwars/doctor who… that kind of thing) with a very nice, cartoony windlight, which made for pretty pictures…

DudGates3

… un unabashed Stargate owner/lover, Seraphim was initially delighted to see several different gates here, all models she’d never seen, before…

DudGates4

… her delight quickly became disappointment, however, when she discovered that not a single one of them…

DudGates5

… was a working Stargate! They had either been set so no-one could dial out through them, or they were purely decorative… something Seraphim found bordering on offensive! She thought she better check, in case the entire gate network was down…

DudGates6

… so she TP’d to Eisa, and, from the gate, there, dialled her own gate… the Eisa gate was working fine, and accepted her address…

DudGates7

… and she was re-united with her big, gorgeous, Pegasus Alteran Stargate, and basked in it’s pure beauty, as it soothingly bubbled and glooped, all it’s symbols and lights lit up, before it whooshed the plasma, through which she had just arrived, away, and powered down. A working Stargate is a wonderful thing to see, and even better to own.

Valmoor

Valmoor

Seraphim visited Valmoor, today. She went with the recommended wind light of ‘midnight’, and found the place to be richly lit in colours that could have come from a Rembrandt painting…

Valmoor2

… there were shooting stars constantly hurtling silently through the firmament over the ‘village’…

Valmoor3

… Seraphim thought it felt more like a ‘manor’, than a ‘village’, but, hey, whatever…

Valmoor4

… it was nicely made, with much of the graveyard, or mausoleum about it…

Valmoor5

… all filled with gorgeous, rich, oil-paint-like colours…

Valmoor6

… from the words used in the places’s description, and various hints around the place, Seraphim deduced the owners had some fairly sleazy pastimes in mind, none of which Seraphim has the slightest interest in, so she stayed out of the basements…

Valmoor7

… somewhere near, she could hear what sounded like a bear with a belly-ache, but it takes more than sick animals to frighten this alien explorer.

At the Station

TrainStation

Seraphim went to the latest Uber event, yesterday. She bought several fabulous items of clothing, including the gorgeous boots and pants she is currently wearing. She also bought, to go with her new clothes… the train station she is standing on…

TrainStation2

… because, well, a girl needs a nice train station… and, if you have a nice train station, you also need…

TrainStation3

… a gorgeous, huge, smoking, steaming, huffing…

TrainStation4

… Russian locomotive, you just do, ok? She put the new acquisitions in the Bunny Field, next to her Gate Platform…

TrainStation5

… they look as though they were always there…

TrainStation6

… and the bunnies barely stopped hopping.

Montmartre

Monty

Seraphim visited Montmartre sim, yesterday…

Monty2

… the sim is beautiful, filled with gorgeously detailed architecture…

Monty3

… and park-like areas…

Monty4

… wonderful spaces waiting to be be found…

Monty5

… regal streets and stairs…

Monty6

… and interiors just as richly detailed as the exteriors…

Monty7

… all the while she was exploring, Seraphim was talking to the sim’s owner/builder, Nicholai Laval. Seraphim found Nicholai very easy to talk to. Their conversation went from how beautiful Seri found the sim, to their mutual love of Photoshop, with Seri explaining that she used it to create her digital paintings…

Monty8

… some of which she showed Nicholai, who was so taken with them, she suggested Seraphim might like to use a space in Montmartre as a gallery. Nicholai showed Seraphim a space she thought might be good… it was perfect. Nicholai is going to set it up and get back to Seri. This was one of the nicest adventures Seraphim has had for a long time (:
