I don’t know if it’s because of the previous shocking events, or maybe just because we all want sometimes some kind of breakaway. But this week I found myself wandering in biotech places, in control rooms, and landscapes both urban futuristic and sandy .. up to the surface of Mars. It was a friend of mine to let me know of the existence in Second Life of the regions of Insilico, a well known and huge area dedicated to the reconstruction of a “cyberpunk” reality and actually used for roleplaying, since many years. And that apparently would have to close down three days ago, on November 15th (after eight years!). For this with my friend I went to explore (he had visited there several times) and in some way to greet and say goodbye to this wonderful environment. In fact something has happened and Insilico is still online today, even though I could not say for how long. I really hope those sims will be saved.. More info on the Insilico site here.
I know nothing about roleplaying (although a bit all SL is this, in some way). I’ve never been part of groups that do it systematically. But I loved the film Blade Runner and Ex Machina, and always feel a strong attraction to these future size not that far away, where basically you deepen and bring extreme stories that are already present in our daily reality. I also like the imagination with which they are played or imagined back in Second Life, and once again I remain fascinated by spaces and lights that builders have made to make us travel in another dimension like this.
I invite you to visit Insilico as soon as possible, and lose yourself in a future sometimes disturbing and sometimes poetic. And for my sport outfits with whom I find it so comfortable, as always the details below. I just wanna say here that I’m so happy with my Aibeat short hair, which I really love and that really I find it hard to change these days…

Some more image to share again about brown on brown skins, pale colors, and …yep, my style maybe. Yesterday I went to The Looking Glass sim, an island full of colors and some surprising corners, where I am going sometime to practice tai-chi..
@ Looking Glass
I was with a friend and we waited for the light to fall before attempting a quick photoshooting, on a little cozy beach. Part of the light was coming from some incredible fireflies flying there, not afraid of us at all.
Here’s the result, aside with an image of another outfit I like so much, quite simple but with a great tank (actually beige, not brown) and a skirt (Idira) I really can’t stop loving. Details below, as usual..
Wish you a good fall day, a calm mood and a relaxing visit inworld if you there.

Second Life is full of marvelous locations. Beaches, where to walk, swim, relax, meet people, are for sure on the top of the favourites spots for SL users.
There are a lot of interesting blogs which are also great destinations guides, telling you exactly what you will find on the different sims.
Here I prefer to just give you some little suggestion, mostly visual, showing some places I really love, and which are often a shelter to me, when I want to meet someone, or maybe just take a break from my RL.. or simply sit and watch the amazing landscape that the SL builders are offering me.
The Beach is a sim where I go since my beginnings here.
Every time I’m amazed by the wonderful sky, the sea, some little details, and the permanent “end of the day” light, like a never ending sunset going on…
Hope you will like.
