My name is Beliria I’m a Petite Elf in SL (Second Life (TM)).
For those of you who are thinking yeh well a Petite is a Teen Avatar or a child avatar isn’t it? Well no.
A Petite is a Mesh avatar 1/8th the size of your normal SL avatars.. granted most of them are on average giants!! That is around 7 meters tall because most haven’t realised how tall they have made their avatars. Any how I digress. Petites were created by Yabusaka Loon.
Like I said before we are vertically challenged.. or are we?..
To me I am the perfect height.
Just a little pointer you may turn a Petite into an aggressive little monster if you refer to them as Child or Kid. We are NOT Child avatars. We may have a child like joy of the world but we are miniature adults. Some even have lola tango’s.. um if you don’t know what they are then oh my! Where have you been? You’ve seriously not seen some of them female avatars with large breasts? Meh.. where was I… oh yes.. well as you can see we get easily distracted as well…
If you have yet to see a Petite then its possible you haven’t looked down, and even more possible that you have bumped into one or two without even noticing. Or your not using a viewer that sees mesh. ..Wails! Like oh my gosh! You don’t know what your missing out on!..
Here are some visual links to the market place where you can even buy a petite! yay! Go on you know you want too
https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/15581 Try the demo’s, because Demo’s are your friend, plus they do save you a heap of money, specially if you don’t like what you see or the creator has more than one option.
There are heaps more things about petites that I will cover in future blogs but I better add this as well. If you want to be a petite in SL but have no clue what SL is then here we go.
SL is the abbreviated name for an online virtual community called Second life https://secondlife.com you will require a viewer to access this world as well as an account.
Most use the 3rd party viewers such as Phoenix Firestorm http://www.firestormviewer.org/
best bet though is if you are going to use a 3rd party viewer use on that is on the allowed list. If you choose to use one of the others then that is your choice part from you may end up in hot water.
Okay a little more about SL for those of you who have heard about it but never dipped your toes in.
It’s a fun place to be, lots to do, lots to see, and boy what can’t you do in here… eeeeps. There is something here for everyone so long as your over a particular age. No clue what that age is because they merged the teen and adult grids. Best bet is if your unsure your old enough then your probably not or just read the info on the SL site about ages etc.
Things you can do in SL, fun stuff such as going clubbing, listening to live bands/concerts, making friends.. even enemies if that’s your choice. You can join grid wide hunts for goodies, a majority of hunts are free but some have a nominal fee.
If you have a knack for design you could go to a sandbox and build your own creations, even sell them via the market place or get a store in world. Or are you an artist why not upload some of your art and sell that in here?
Not your thing then there are Gorean Sims for those of you that like Master/slave role play, or Sci-fi sims, think there is even a CSI sim out there too, basically there is a lot of things going on in SL. You can even become a fighter with a katana and work your way up the ranks, or a Jedi knight. Me I’m just a petite elf who creates her own wings, accessories & Clothing, and goes to concerts, clubs, um.. sits on lucky chairs to win goodies etc. etc. :D, and who now blogs.. lol.
Watch this space for more I have a heap of pictures from the Fantasy Faire that I have never uploaded anywhere yet, and yes I went there as a petite :D.
I hope to add some tips, shopping guides, etc all for petites and maybe for the odd biggie.. I mean um.. <coughs> Normal sized avatar… if there really is such a thing :D.
Over and out for now Bel x
Pssst that is me
