Brave Defenders of Second Life Neko:  Volume 4, Issue 12 (50¢)

A damp Fall night, just after 23:00… the dim glare of streetlights cast shadows in the grime of a tall building, where three darker shadows stirred imperceptibly…

I’ve been wanting to start a routine feature on Neko guys for a long time, in support of all the wonderful (not to mention handsome) Neko men I’ve met around the grid. At long last, the stars crossed and it happened.

What does Second Life Steampunk and Nikola Tesla have in common?
How about this: a most amazing sim, a most amazing steampunk outfit, and a most amazing builder by the name of Sextan Shepherd.

Neko of the Omo River

Na’vi of Second Life take note: authentic beauty and a connection to nature does not exist only in the realm of computer graphics. Step away from virtual Pandora and travel with this little Neko to a very real, very lush river valley in Ethiopia, where residents with uncommon artistic vision create beauty that will take your breath away.

Virtual Neko Store Alert x2: My Pinkie Skull + Something in Your Mouth

•June 10, 2010 • 1 Comment

In this, my second official Virtual Neko store alert, I bring you not one but two cool shops. Believe it or not, this time you’ve got Bobby to thank for discovering them (see, I’m not the only shopper on this blog)…

The first store shown above, My Pinkie Skull, isn’t considered “Neko” per se, but it’s got enough selection to keep most of my Neko friends in shopping bliss.

The second store, Something In Your Mouth (shown below) is perfect for when you need to finish off an outfit with a unique touch… or for those times when you’re hungry… or if you’re a die-hard  trivia buff (there’s a trivia game going at all hours). Many of the vendor pics show a Neko model, and many of the items are quite Neko-friendly. You’ll just have to visit to see what I mean.  ~.^

Store #1: MPS / mY pINKIE sKULL
Creator: Tatyana Ultsch
What You’ll Find: Several different but very cool skirts, pants, jeans, sweaters and shirts (a few for guys in the back left corner), casual lingerie and body suits, lycra arm/leg-warmers, well-made unisex belts, and in the back room of the store, more fun arm/legwarmers with matching collars, shoes, a couple hairs, and a couple skyboxes
What I Love: Nice selection without feeling too overwhelming; great textures and shadowing; the way cool layered ripped socks, and the unique “LaceMe” lycra arm- and leg-warmers.

Store #2: Something in Your Mouth
Creator: Aletta Milena
What You’ll Find: Pretty much anything you can imagine to put into your mouth — from RP weapons, animals, food, red vines, instant cocoa, tea, voodoo bags, chew, drumsticks, steampunk gears, a flashlight, an ipod, a vinyl record, a whisky flask, a love letter, a toothpick, a piece of straw, heck there’s even a ganja leaf — to a number of rather brutal looking mouth piercings against the back and left walls.  o.o
What I Love: The imagination that went behind all of these items, letting you personalize your avatar with unique extra touches

Second Life Motorcycle Mechanic

•May 23, 2010 • Leave a Comment

Before me the open road stretched out like an old dog waiting for a belly scratch. No schedule, no responsibilities, nothing but good old Route 66, the wind in my hair, and the philosophical musings that always seem to come forth while riding a motorcycle. Where would I end up? And what would I wear during my travels?

The journey awaits you here >

Second Life’s first catboy Chibi Chang, admiring the Moonlight in Summer 2003

After posting a blog story about the early days of SL Neko-dom from Chibi Chang’s perspective (a catboy born into Second Life in May 2003), I saw countless messages from readers in various forums all wishing for photos from those early years. Last night Chibi was kind enough to dig through the remote, dusty corners of his 7 years’ worth of inventory to share what he had with us all.
