We are so lucky to have the greatest designers in the world right here in SecondLife. And they do not skimp on helping the Lindens celebrate 15 years of beauty and exploration.
Over the next few weeks I will be going over all the items being given away over 4 sims worth of amazing stores. I hope you get the chance to do a bit of shopping, even if you may be short lindens, this collection of works is worth the admiration of all.
Glasses: Broken Geek Glasses – April May Designs
Eye Makeup: “Khol” eyeliner in 6 colors – alaskametro<3
Earrings: The Zoo Earrings – Blushed

Another great designer I was really enamored of is Apple Fall, offering these beautifully sweet treats. The cake with the peach on top is an exclusive that can only be found during SecondLife Birthday party event.
Unlike most that are going into their teenage years, SsecondLife is anything but difficult. The world just keeps growing and getting more beautiful with each passing year! This year they have stopped at nothing to ensure their residents have a fantastic time celebrating.
Each week the Lindens are giving away a special gift for those who take a bit off time and look for it. There will be 15 gifts over 15 weeks, each hidden in a gorgeous region. And if all the gifts are collected there is a promise of a special bonus surprise at the end of the 15 weeks.
To start looking for your gifts, you need to go to the sims Secondlife has put together to hold their party. Check out the website The Big 15th Birthday Gift Grab to get all the information and join me in world for some fun =)
After exploring the SecondLife Birthday party area where there are so many things to do, from taking a POD tour to listening to some great music, go ahead and add your HUD and check out the clue to find the first weekly Gift Grab item.
I was hesitant to get a mesh head because I did not want to lose the customized face I had worked on for the last 10 years. But after seeing the amazing things that can be done with one I couldn’t put off the change; like when CD’s first came out and you weren’t sure they were a fad or not.
Years ago, LAQ was the place I went to get all the best textured hair and skins. So when I saw that they had released a new mesh head similar in appearance to my “cute girl” look, I ran to the store and started my conversion. I had confidence that the quality of craftsmanship would be beyond my expectations.
~What do you think of the similarities?~
~Building the new Cricket~
I had to buy both the head and the skin separately, but this is a nice feature as it allows many different options for your personal perfect look. There were a couple of extras I needed to get for a complete Cricket look which included applies for mesh body to match color of mesh head, my freckles and an eyeliner pack. After the easy switch, I am thrilled with the results and proud to have kept my individuality while getting to ability to create a more beautiful avatar.
If you wish to get the HUD, it comes with these options on 3 different tabs<
Tabs: The HUD has three tabs: features, mocap and looks:
Features Tab: The features tab has the most amount of options:
