I attended SL7B this year and well, something felt...lacking. Other persons perhaps?
As usual, I could count on fun, crazy displays such as Extrovirtual's huge dragon. So cute...Or this fluffy bunny thing...The cake confounded me though as it seemed to be part of a Linden official area...really?And once more...the fluffy bunny thing...I could go into a post reflecting about the changes in SL over the years blahblahblah, but I'll save that for another time. Enjoy the fluffy bunny thing.

Striking SL7B Build

Just in case you may have found a lot of the SL7B to have been kind of a hodgepodge wasteland too, I found this beautiful provocative build. I have misplaced my notes on its title and artist, so if someone knows, could you let me know?

SteelCobra had made the mistake of squooshing Bennie, one of Tensai's pet spiders. Let's just say that she made him better, stronger, faster...
At one point I got pinned down a bit too close. After the night's excitement, it was a relief to relax back at home...

Shishen Guardians at the Shanghai Pagoda

I always have some Steelhead-related project going on like the manholes, for instance. If you stroll around Steelhead, you can see two different versions of them: leaping trout throughout most of Steelhead's sims and for Shanghai, it moon bridges.

Lunar asked me to do another project for Shanghai: A shishen/si shou guardian compass in the pagoda. If you visit the pagoda, which you can't miss, you can find it. The Chinese characters for "Shanghai" mark the very center of the sim. The shi shen are as follows: the "Black Warrior of the North" (which is a tortoise fighting with a snake), the Green Dragon of the East, the Red Bird of the South and the White Tiger of the West. I based them upon ancient tomb markers and created them with the "woodcut" look like the manholes. Go see it for yourself!

Protecting Mah Property

One thing is for certain: Steelhead meetings can always be counted on to have something unusual happen. SteelCobra's arriving as Cookie Monster being no exception...I rezzed out a HUGE two-story chocolate chip cookie for him in Harborside and things got a little serious...Sheriff Fuzz came over to handle the situation...
The conversation that ensued?
[21:16] Fuzzball Ortega: Cobra, what are you doing?
[21:16] Eladrienne Laval: For once, I am not the one causing trouble, lol
[21:16] SteelCobra Calamari: protecting mah property, Sir
[21:17] Fuzzball Ortega: CAn't you protect it in Steeltopia? You're like close to Doc's property
[21:17] Fuzzball Ortega: You're gonna hurt yourself with that gun
[21:17] SteelCobra Calamari: Well, this cookie is just too ... heavy to move
[21:17] SteelCobra Calamari: :(
[21:18] Fuzzball Ortega: Have you tried.......Oh, I dunno.......eating it?
[21:18] SteelCobra Calamari: Im full!
[21:18] SteelCobra Calamari: And im saving it for later!
[21:18] Fuzzball Ortega: Ok....just be careful with the gun. You'll shoot your eye out
[21:18] Eladrienne Laval: I love Steelhead!

1001 Nights Event

As part of Steelhead's activities, there was a 1001 Nights reading over two days. Lunar convinced me to read for the first night and I selected Sir Richard Burton's "Tale of the Lover Who Feigned Himself A Thief". I had a really nice time and those cushions sure were comfortable...
And um...Lunar has a mom. I didn't think he was spawned or from a stork or anything, but seems she has arrived to town out of the blue. One thing's for certain is that the resemblance is pretty strong...

Not-Lunar and Not-Tensai

Lunar and Tensai were away for tonight's meeting, so Veles and Mrs P thought they would act as stand-ins for them...
