Look #310

I was given this mesh head by Lee Valentine, Owner of LV Designs. I wasn't sure what to think as I've never worn a mesh head before. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Lee has done an amazing job on this Angelina Jolie mesh head. It is so detailed and is amazing for photography work.

Mesh Body Tattoos

So I was asked by a customer to make a new mesh body version of one of my old tattoos. Here is the old version... Click Me
I haven't done any work on tattoos in a long time but I was keen to help her out so I tried my hand at omega HUD appliers for mesh bodies. I really enjoyed creating again and think it's something I might start doing again in my spare time and hopefully improve a lot from my old designs.

Here is the finished product that I made for the Maitreya Lara Mesh Body. Click Me for the marketplace listing.

Time to think... What's your story?

So i've spent tonight reminiscing about my time in second life and felt like making a quick blog post gathering my thoughts. Never know, maybe someone else is going through the same thing as me. I don't make my feelings known very often so this is out of the ordinary for me but here's my story...
Since I joined with my first proper account in 2009 things have changed a lot. I've always lacked confidence and been a really shy person in real life but quickly made a great group of friends in second life. I became manager of a great club and through that made even more friends. I had a lot of free time at that point and spent many hours a day on second life. I ended up second life married and life couldn't have been better. But then I had a bereavement in real life which really knocked me back. After chatting with my best friend today who I met back then in 2009, it seems as though the grace silverweb everybody used to know just ceased to exist at that bad point in my life...
I left second life for a while to deal with real life and consequently lost a lot of people and the second life I once knew. But I later returned and started a new chapter in my second life. And ofcourse I met new people and made a bunch of good friends.
I'm more than happy with the people I have in my second life now and I am very happily partnered. I still speak to some old friends but over the years have drifted apart from many. As I got older and my real life got busier I've started to have less and less time to spend on second life, which isn't a bad thing. My real life is better than ever and I'm very happy. But when someone starts to come online less, people in second life start to forget about them more. It doesn't seem fair but unfortunately it's just one of those things. Even though my real life is so hectic, I do always make sure I get online every now and then to see those people who remain close to me. I think it's important to maintain those relationships.
Two years ago I was spending so much of my time on second life shopping and making up different outfits that I became obsessed with second life fashion. I tried my hand at creating shapes and tattoos on marketplace. Eventually, I decided I'd start my own fashion blog because I thought I might as well share my passion with others. As much as I love blogging, it is difficult as I don't always have a lot of time. I've lost a lot of sponsors because of my limited time but that's something I can't do anything about. It's always sad losing sponsors, but at the same time I will never be sorry for having a real life and I would never change it for anything.
At this point in my second life I don't have a lot of friends like I used to. I have a lot of acquaintances but it's not the same thing. I believe the reason to be a mixture of things. Mostly my lack of time for second life... but after talking to my best friend I realised that the real grace silverweb got lost off somewhere long ago. I kind of lost myself and my personality and sometimes it's really difficult to get that back. I have no confidence to talk to people and make new friends. Sometimes I feel like I live too much in the past and that's why I find it hard to move on. Or maybe I'm just broken from a lot of traumatic experiences in second life and real life over the years. Whatever reason it is, second life just isn't the same anymore.  Is it just the fact that I've grown up and matured? Is it because I have a lot more important things in my real life to think about these days? I don't know. Everything in second life is easier when you have a close group of friends around you. So when you don't have that, it's hard to put yourself out there and find it again. It's really just going around in circles and being stuck in a rut.
Maybe one day I'll have a big group of friends again... or maybe I won't. Maybe it's not possible to have both, a perfect real life at the same time as a perfect second life. I guess I'll just keep plodding on and see where life takes me. I've considered leaving second life for good a lot of times. I consider myself to be very lucky. Some people have a not so good real life and rely on second life a lot... I'm lucky I don't need to do that. But I've never left... because there's certain people who, although I've only met them online, I can't imagine not having them in my life anymore and I would never want to.
All I know is that I have a list of people who I've drifted apart from for whatever reasons who I miss more than anything. Over the years I've met a lootttttt of terrible people in second life. That's the side of it I don't miss. But amongst the dirt I've managed to cling onto a few diamonds who mean a lot to me and I'm so grateful to them for still being there for me through everything ♥
If I could give one piece of advice to a newbie on second life it would be to make the most of the good times and hold onto the good people because you never know where you're going to end up. But more importantly, don't let second life take over your real life and stop you living.
So, what's your story?

Grace xx
