SL Blogger Support

Here at SL Blogger Support we always try to come up with tips and advice to support the blogger community of Second Life. Instead of writing another article, or wall of text if you will, with a list of ‘things a blogger needs to know/do/no do’, I would like to ask YOU, the bloggers of Second Life, to help eachother.

There are a few questions that seem to return on a regular basis, in groupchat and on other platforms (e.g. Facebook, Plurk, Twitter and Flickr), mainly regarding the fashion-blogs: 1) the amount of views/favs/followers some designers require when one wants to apply for a brand and 2) the number of SL Feeds a blog needs to be syndicated in.

Some, not all, creators/designers, only want bloggers who have – let’s say, a minimum of 1000 views per picture on Flickr and their blog needs to be in ‘several’…

Picture This !

One of the things I think every Second Life resident has in common and loves to do , is take photos. I know I do. I enjoy doing video as well. I use LumaLite for all my photos and vids.  What I do not enjoy is bulky photo-studios that requires land and tons of prim-mage and building light boxes to edit and move around. I want to shoot what I want, where I want and control my own lights on the fly. I don’t want over scripted gadgets that lag every avatar around me either. On top of all that is the expense, why spend a ton of lindens dollars to do ONE simple thing. Light the avatars well and pose them in poses you choose and control.


LumaLite HUD does exactly that. No more no less. A simple easy to use , shoot on the fly , fabulous low scripted mesh HUD. You control the avatar, the lights, the eyes, poses in just a few clicks. Rez the projector on the model before tp to any sim that allows scripts and get your shadows too, providing your computer graphics allows you to use shadows. Combine that with a great canvas like ALL of Second Life sims (owners permitting) as well as a great windlight and snap happy ! Or you can get a very simple basic studio , I always recommend Strawberry Singhs simple 3 prim mesh studio that she graciously offers on marketplace for free.  This can be rez’d in even the busiest of SL sandboxes without issue if you do not own land.

The LumaLite Hud is a lighting system made for Second Life Beginners and Pros alike. Giving you basic light positions for Key light and Fill light as well as color control and unlimited positional projector light. Control intensity, radius and falloff as well. Unlimited Positional Gazer included to lock your subject’s eyes and let you control their positions. Lifetime updates, including all small updates or ANY addons which we have planned to add to the hud !!

Please contact Toran Babenco or colleen Criss upon purchase to be added to the inworld group for help and support as well as tips and tricks. OR drop either of us a notecard for more info before purchase OR to get a demo of the HUD.

Take a look at our flickr group at what our fabulous photographers are doing with their HUD.

Enjoy your Second Life memories and snap happy !!

Deals and Promises

I mentioned in my last post, that Toran used to make fun of me and my love/hate relationship with mesh. Well he loved my new shape and loved the CaTwa mesh head so much he even gifted me another one ! (I will blog the new head later. ) BUT more importantly he made a deal with me that if I would leave my Freya shape on and dress it ( skimpily )he promised that if I did the work he would go full mesh ! LOL. Challenge accepted !!😉


I think he looks fabulous! My search began here , the best mesh info blog I know of the Mesh Body Addicts , I sent him info on a few bodies and he started with NIRAMYTH Aesthetic advanced mesh body. It only took 2 days to get it sorted out. He may try a few other mesh bodies later on so this look could be a ….test!


He was not really in love with the Niramyth face/head and choose the CaTwa Paul V4.10 instead. Which was a good fit to be honest, it’s not that far from how his regular SL avie face was to me. And I have to say he did a great job color matching ! He has not purchased any Omega appliers so far for skins. Whispers and all his *cough* bits are perfectly matched !😛 I am used to his eyes being a deeper blue though. Right now he is wearing NEWCLAN_Romantic Eyes.

T blog shot 1

His hair is from .::MADesigns HAIR::. ~ BERNARD ~ Black and to be honest one of my very favorite for men even though it is an older hair. The locket is from EarthStones called Best of Times Locket. He is wearing ZED Mesh Aesthetic casual shirt and pants and shoes , ::ZED:: Designz for Men.

Soooooooo ,

This is Toran today all meshed up and below is Toran a week ago.




I LIKE it !! BUT I could not resist saying a few times when there were *grrrssss* and words you can not say on TV🙂 welcome to my mesh world!! LOL I admit it , I had fun on this makeover. I hope he did too.🙂
