It has been a long time since I actually login into Second Life with a brand new account. Things changed a lot I noticed. The good news was, that I don’t have to do all the stupid tasks again which were kind of mandatory years ago. Instead you land at a place called Destination Island.
What still remained the same is, that you start of with a very basic avatar. Call me vain, but I thought I could not start my journey looking like one of those standard starting avis. So my first visit was to a place called Freebie Galaxy. I grab lots of free stuff there: skins, shapes, cloth and hair and off I went to Help Island to go to the sandbox.
It was a disappointing exercise to try on all those different shapes and skins. One looked worse than the other and after a while I gave up and decided to use the standard Avatar called “female Student” for the time being. I just dressed a bit different as the cloth the avi comes with, are totally unacceptable. I hope I will meet people on the way, who can advise me on better places to get free stuff.
Then I asked people on help Island for a recommendation of a noob friendly music club and got my first landmark from somebody. Immediately I TP-ed to the place and found myself in very busy rock club. I did not have much time to get into conversations at the time, but at least I got a starting point for this trip and made a screenshot to give you guys an idea of how I look like now.
So here I am, in a raunchy rock club, called DP or Dear Prudence Rock Club.
What you guys think? Should I rather quickly get a new look or is this ok for the time being?
Any comments, criticism and suggestions appreciated.
