Winter Love – FATE Hand Poser HUD for Bento in Second Life

Bento is LIVE! That’s right, Project Bento is now available on the main Second Life viewer and today I bring you a quick post & video to show you FATE‘s awesome new HUD for Bento hands!

Winter Love - FATE Hand Poser HUD for Bento

As shown in the pose above, the possibilities for poses is astonishing and the new HUD from FATE allows you to pose all the different bones in your Bento hands with ease. Catwa and Akeruka are releasing facial expression HUDs for their Bento heads today too, it’s an exciting time to be in SL and I can’t wait for Firestorm to become fully Bento compatible!

Check out the video and let me know what you think!

#UnitedAndKind

Today marks the opening of a fantastic event in Second Life – the non-profit fundraiser #UnitedAndKind is packed with many of Second Life’s greatest designers offering products old and new with 100% of the donations being split equally between four organisations!

#UnitedAndKind

The four organisations are as follows:

  1. Color of Change
  2. Planned Parenthood
  3. Naseeha
  4. The Trevor Project

Please visit each website and take a moment to read about the fantastic work and support they provide.

It goes without saying that there are fantastic products for sale as well as donation boxes if you would prefer to just donate, you will also get a box with some vest tops (like mine) as a thank you!

There’s also an auction where you can bid for some sensational prizes including a lifetime’s supply of Blueberry releases!
I put myself up for auction too, it’s the first time I’ve ever done this and I don’t expect I’ll bring in much money but here’s what I’m offering!

The event runs from today through December 11th.

Feel free to drop by and bid! Or in whatever you’d like, please do come and donate towards these causes at such a crucial time in the US.

Sending all my love and support from the UK!

Fame! Dancing in Second Life

Being a huge fan of dance and digital performance in Second Life, I simply had to show off the amazing collaboration between Dead Dollz and Astralia available at The Crossroads!

Fame!

Dead Dollz have created this gorgeous dance and fitness attire in a plethora of colours and it fits the Maitreya mesh body seamlessly. Astralia provide everything you could ever need for your own dance studio in their accompanying gacha set, many of the pieces are animated and are so much fun to play with.

But why write about it when I can show you?! Here’s a video featuring said items and a short dance routine! Enjoy!

PS. I know I know I’m awful at the camera work but I’m practicing!
