Between the vagaries of RL work and the ever-increasing demands of family life, it’s often hard to find the time and the wherewithal to do things in-world the way I’d like, and even to sit down and learn how to do other things, such as 3D modelling. If you add the fatigue from my thirteen (on both this and my previous account) years in SL, it’s no surprise that I’m no longer as driven and motivated as I used to be. However, I still like to have fun in-world, even if it “merely” consists of shopping and chatting with a few dear friends I’ve made and kept over the years.
That said, I reckoned 2019 was a good year to make a bunch of changes in my SL. I started with revamping my avatar, and I detailed the process and the results in my previous post. I changed my profile picture as well. Over the past few days, post-vacation, I also started reconsidering my outfits – some I had never bothered to use, and others I simply grew tired of. So, I went a bit Stalin on them and performed a great purge, in my outfits, in my inventory, and even in my Flickr photostream. While I was at it, I did a little rummaging in my inventory and started combining older, but still relevant, and recent items to come up with new looks. One of these I’m presenting right here after the cut.
