A Jolly Good Read

A Jolly Good Read

I was going to write an EPIC blog-post tonight of such absolutely gargantuan proportions that it would have become known as  ‘..the best blog post ever written about Second Life..’

Unfortunately, I am way too tired to achieve this epic feat that would surely have bagged me metaversal fortune and glory.

My left eyeball is doing that strange twitching thing it insists on doing when I need my bed, and my right eye is practically asleep of its own accord.  Fortunately, I can retire early and take some quality Second Life reading material up to Bedfordshire with me. I have two selections to share with you..

My first choice is the latest edition of STYLE KINGDOM.  This esteemed publication is celebrating its second anniversary, and the issue is absolutely bursting at the virtual seams with awesome. There’s so much work that has gone into producing this magazine with sensational photography on practically every page. I am really taken with the Fall fashion feature, beginning on page 45, which showcases some fabulous must-have items for both genders. It’s a really excellent collection of practical and stylish pieces, and is sure to make you hungry for virtual shopping. If you’re looking for style inspiration you’ll find it within these pages for sure.

The October edition of FUSION magazine is out now too, featuring a child avatar, Saddie Hurricane, on the cover. I think this could be a first for one of the more well-known magazines, and it’s good to see.  I enjoy the Halloween theme of the magazine, and it showcases some of the most popular Halloween haunts (excuse the pun!) that have been created in-world this year.  There’s a great photo review of Havenhollow, which offered all the fun of trick or treating without having to step outside into cold, dark reality. (It also provided some exceptional scares too, and has to be one of the most fun things that I’ve experienced In Second Life!) I also really like the Fall Living Room created for FUSION by Britain Knave. Check out the living room image featured on pages 58/59 and tell me that you wouldn’t want to be snuggled up there!

Right, pass me my cocoa. I’ve got my PJ’s on and I’m snuggled under the duvet ready to enjoy a relaxing read. Wanna join me?
