All this technology for connection and what we really only know more about is how anonymous we are in the grand scheme of things.~ Heather Donahue


She’s a librarian. She found SL because she read about it in a magazine about library science. When she got there, she not only found wonderful library resources, but also a whole way of imagining a secret life that leapt off the page. Now I am not suggesting librarians don’t have such a secret life—it exists quite abundantly in libraries—in many romance novels, in academic texts, in histories and photographs, in reference books and databases. It’s all there but when she found she opened the book, it was a discussion between her and the author and nothing interactive happened. So SL became a place to bring out the discussion and explore her ideas and for once, embody her secret life. She created an alt, named her “Peaches,” cloaked her identity, and leapt in….


I think many people know this story very well. They come into SL for professional reasons and stay in SL for personal reasons. Ever want to be cinched up tight in a corset and wantonly walk around, collar on your neck, fishnets wrapped around your long legs, stiletto heels putting little dents in the floor, anonymously? Khurt knows the your need for corsets. In his store, every outfit starts with the prim corset and works its way through different themes. I wear here  corset with a subtle skull motif, tight little leather booty shorts, a cropped sweater and fishnets. Khurt offers steampunk, Victorian, romantic, goth—whatever your heart desires—all held tight with a prim corset that can be sized independently on the X, Y or Z axis.

She covers her eyes with a short wavy cut from Chiaki Xue (really meant for boys but works so well here). Her skin is aida Ewing’s newest (out sometime today) because, frankly, an anonymous alt should look as good as the main avatar, especially, when she’s out and about, living a second life.

P.S. If you EVER read down this far and read this on Sunday afternoon, Dahlia Lithwick, one of my favoritist writers, is going to be in SL AGAIN. (I just find it so wonderful that she embodies herself here—NOT anonymously.) If you would like to join in the discussion either via the web or in SL, you can either go to their webpage at Virtually Speaking Sundays or tp over to the sim and see Dahlia in real live pixels. She knows all the juicy bits about the Supreme Court!
