 I originally had another idea on how I wanted this blog to go but recently I have had to question my reasons for being in second life, why it is so important for me to be involved in modeling and most importantly why I care that the people who I care for and love the most support me on my journey.

I have been in second life on and off since 2007. I have had many experiences and have met so many creative and not so creative people along the way.

What keeps bringing people back and what keeps bringing me back?

Speaking for myself, for the most part sl is full of creative people. I see second life as a canvas, an empty canvas. The builders, artists, photographers, designers, musicians, bloggers, models and stylists (if I missed anyone my apologizes) contribute to make sl what it is. I am a model and stylist in second life. This is how I tap into my artistic side and modeling and styling are my choices of a medium for this canvas. This is what I am passionate about. It brings me pleasure.

Yes second life is a game if that is what you bring to it. For so many others, like myself it is a creative expression. It is one of the many things that makes me happy. No matter what your passion is, whether it be computers, sports, your children, your job to name a few. There is no difference in any of them, not one less worthy or one any better than the other.

This little collection is what keeps bringing me back. To be able to do this and have others admire it…. well its just priceless.

This is my second life. This is my canvas!

     I have mentioned before that I am a nanny in rl to 4 great kids. One of those kids is a little girl. Every week she greets me at the door asking if I have any new photos. LOL she is very critical of my flickr too, not at all afraid to tell me what she doesn’t like and wow if body parts are showing I get an ewww. Gotta love 7 year olds. Well a few weeks ago I offered to style what her whatever she wanted me to style, and was greeted with the hugest smile  across her face. I asked what she wanted and she said a blue sparkly dress with blue feathers. So here is her style, not a mix and match but a Bliss Couture gown (Aliyeh Gown in midnight) fitting Erin’s description.  The necklace is from Finesmith. They have recently become one of my favorite places to shop for jewelry. The piece is called Love doesn’t grow on trees. I have a huge fondness for trees. Last the hair is from Osmose formally known as Plume. Don’t you agree that their hair is fabulous.

 Well here you go sweet girl, I hope you enjoy. Happy Reading All!  ❤ Isobel Oleander

 

This was my second style for my advanced OGlam class. I got the best style in the class. I was so excited but this style didn’t start so easy. I guess first I lacked the confidence in knowing I can do well.  Then there was the challenge that I faced with search not working for me in second life. A very special friend came in and helped me.  We went shopping the night before class and had a blast. I put this look together in a hour and a half. My personal best.  Wanted an animal on my shoulder so I looked on the marketplace, a models best friend and found the peeps. I personally love peeps so I was totally excited that I found them.  Hope you  like it.
