2020 SciFiCon

SciCon

Seraphim got sent an LM for one of the organisations with a stall at the 2020 SciFi Convention…

SciCon2

… she wasn’t expecting the landing point to be under water…

SciCon3

… it was a submerged cityscape, with beautiful aquatic flora and fauna…

SciCon4

… very pretty…

SciCon5

… Seraphim had just begun to explore, and just started to find interesting places…

SciCon6

… when SL crashed for her! As it was late in the evening for her human, they both decided to come back tomorrow.

Foxwood

FoxWood

Seraphim visited the Alchemy store, in Foxwood, this evening…

FoxWood2

… a lot of the store seems to be outdoors. While the setting is really just window-dressing for the items…

FoxWood3

… Seraphim found the sim to be extremely beautiful, in a Maxfield Parrish kind of way…

FoxWood4a

… she found the scenery and colours…

FoxWood5

… perfectly suited her mood.

 

Ocean Pearl

OP

Seraphim just visited Ocean Pearl

OP2

… the landing point is at sea level, where there’s a shanty town. You make your way up a long flight of stairs (or you can fly) to the urban, sci-fi-grunge area. This part has a lovely, drawn, comic-book feel…

OP3

… which Seri always likes. The thing she found most interesting, here, though…

OP4

… was the amount of static/animesh characters she’s never seen before…

OP5

… as an inveterate explorer, she is used to all the standard, prop, characters that are often placed in builds…

OP6

… almost none of the ones she saw here were ones she’d seen anywhere previously…

OP7

… they, too, had a drawn/comic-book look, and fitted beautifully in the build…

OP8

… there were so many of them, it didn’t feel like there actually wasn’t another, single, avi here…

OP9

… Seri has never heard of Ocean Pearl, before, so, suspects it’s relatively new…

OP10

… she hopes it’s around for a while.

 

Shopping With a Friend

WithFriend

Seraphim hasn’t been shopping for a while, she’s trying to keep her spending down, till her human starts earning a full-time wage, again… but she saw this guy, and couldn’t resist buying him, he wasn’t very expensive…

WithFriend2

… she took him to the next event on her list… where she was promptly propositioned in the most crude terms, by a total stranger, something she’s not had to put up with for a long time…

WithFriend3

… who’d have thought a goofy cuddle-bunny would make a girl so attractive?

New Horizons

Bubs

Seraphim is very happy with her new direction in photography. She’s finally overcome the need to place a person in the frame. This isn’t a sudden thing, of course. Over the last year she’s gradually stopped being interested in Gynoids as photographic subjects, and she started doing her ‘still-life’ setups…

Bubs2

… she’s always liked the ‘landscape’ format for scenes of sky and horizon. Her new pastime is combing SL for such scenes.

Bubs4a

There are very few images of Gynoids left in her gallery, now. Soon, even they will have made way for Seri’s new horizons.

New Home at Night

NightTimeHome

Seraphim has been spending so much time setting up her new home, she often works into the night…

NightTimeHome2

… which is fine, because, then, she gets to see how beautiful it’s all looking…

NightTimeHome3

… her front yard is almost finished…

NightTimeHome4

… which is to say, it’s almost at a point where it’s basic form is established, from where it will be endlessly tweaked… which, of course, is all part of the fun. The purple light in the nearest window…

NightTimeHome5

… is Seri’s beloved ‘Kitty-in-a-Balloon’, now happily settled into to her new airspace, and tirelessly zooming around, constantly providing Seraphim with delight…

NightTimeHome6

… the front door to Seri’s mansion is guarded by two ferocious…

NightTimeHome7

… um… plastic robots (:

 

NeverMore Gallery

NeverMore

Seraphim visited the NeverMore Gallery, today…

NeverMore2

… there were several photographs being exhibited there, that she rather liked…

NeverMore3

… mostly because they were very good…

NeverMore4a

… but also because several of them were wonderfully eccentric…

NeverMore5a

… not the usual SL ‘photography’ fare…

NeverMore6

… Seraphim particularly liked this one, for it’s beautiful, limited palette, and it’s genuine air of mystery.
