Accessories can really take a picture or your avatar to new heights and meaning. They can make you look at a picture and know right away that an avatar is singing on a stage or posing for a magazine. A hat can be more than just a hat, but a signal to the rest of the second life community that you’re a cop or fireman. Sometimes it is the accessories that can bring us to life. I wanted to create a stage to sing, but I need some things to create that imagery. I had to ask myself this question: what does every Musician need?
It’s hard to define what everyone musician needs because it depends on the musician. However, I can tell you to bring me to life, I needed every one of the accessories in this photo to include smoke machines, a guitar, microphone and headphones. I didn’t buy every one of these items all at once. Some of them were old and some of them new.
Today, I realized that each of these accessories gave me definition as a singer. I held my microphone in my hand and had the band behind me with smoke blowing on my body. I would have never been able to make this interpretation without each of these items in this photo.
Second life is such a special place, because you can truly be whatever and whoever you would like to be. But you must have the little things to play the part. For me, I needed each instrument in the picture.When you put everything together, it really does project a role–a role chosen for reasons only known to us.
I chose this scene because music holds a very dear place in my heart. Musicians know that instruments speak to the soul and for me that has always been singing.I can play that role that for whatever reason I can’t. It’s a beautiful thing really, when you think about it.
Taking photos has always been a way to express myself without telling the world everything that I’m going through. I’m not one to share my life, but in this small way I can. It brings me joy. My role play allows me to say and do things that maybe I never had the chance to do.
As many know blogging requires a certain niche. I have always surrounded myself with role players in second life. I am just now realizing the importance of finding the right pieces to be that person they walk around as. So I hope that my blog can help those who play a part find that special item that makes it all the more real for them.
As always happy shopping!!
(This store is always really hard for me to find, so I thought a landmark was needed)
