You know, it might be cool here in Australia right now, but I would still eat one of these in a heartbeat.
Melon popsicles were one of the things that I loved when I visited Japan. There was a little package of them that came with six melon pops – three green and three pink, with the flavours of honeydew and watermelon. They had little chocolate chips as ‘seeds’, dusted over the melon slice; dark chocolate chips for the watermelon, and white for the honeydew.
They are one of the first treats that I bought while I was over there, so they kinda hold a special little place in my heart. As a result, I just had to make my own little take on melon popsicles in Second Life!
Teleport to Sanu to pick up a melon popsicle today!
She’s a little further along, but she’s not quite finished yet. I intend to do a bit of painting tomorrow – today I was busy on other things.
And for my Second Life friends – I’ve released a little something for the 4th of July! Ok, so I might be Australian, but who am I to ignore all of my American customers? I can’t do that. Besides, any excuse for a tasty digital treat is quite alright with me.
I’ve done something special with this one too. This special holiday popsicle comes in both regular and petite sizes, to satisfy my customers of every size!
Teleport to Sanu to to grab yours for just 1l. It’s in the blue and red gift box by the giant bunnies. Happy 4th of July, everybody!
There’s just something special about recreating sugary treats in Second Life. Perhaps it’s the fact that they can always come out perfect, or maybe it has more to do with the fact that what you make is so idealized that they seemingly surpass their real life counterparts some of the time… even if they don’t have that same full-sense feel that real food does.
I mean… you can’t taste it. You can’t smell it… touch is out of the question, unless you want to try licking your computer screen (I don’t recommend it)… you’ll never hear that satisfying crunch when you give in to temptation and just bite into the lollipop instead of sucking it til the end, like you know you’re meant to. But goshdarnit… they’re still satisfying.
Anyhow… enough of my musing. Teleport over to Sanu to pick up some virtual lollipops today!
I know, I know… I’ve been incredibly slack recently, because I’ve moved to a new country and have only just gotten an office chair to go with my teensie tiny desk. I am currently seriously missing my gorgeous, sweeping, able-to-spread-out-all-over desk back home. Alas, I shall have to make do with this tiny little thing for now.
I’ve recently relocated – to Japan of all places. As a result, I haven’t had a whole lot of time (or a place) to create stuff for Sanu. Thankfully I’ve got a department store fairly close to my home, from which I have been able to purchase the basic necessities needed to be able to work properly… though the heat and humidity here really does make me question whether lugging home devilishly heavy furniture is worth it at times.
Something tells me I need to get one of those little trolleys with wheels on it… hmm…
Anyhow, teleport to Sanu today to pick up this cute little set of pumpkin macaroons! They’ll only be out for the Autumn season!
It totally slipped my mind to announce the pretzel sticks here on my blog… so first things first:
I’m going to Japan in just a couple of weeks, and one of the things that I’m going to be looking forward to is pocky – a type of dipped pretzel/biscuit stick that comes in a multitude of fun flavours. Did you know that you can even get special flavoured pocky depending on what region of Japan you are in? For example, in Nagano there is grape pocky, and in Hokkaido you can get yubari melon flavour. You can read more about them on Wiki.
And now for my latest release: lipsticks!
These lovely lippies hang on a cute little string around your neck… and the even better thing is that anyone who clicks it will get a wonderful little kiss on the cheek. Cute, huh?
Annnnnd I couldn’t just stop at one set of shades…
So I made two sets. One for the vivid shades, and another for the classics. What can I say? I love these lipsticks so much I needed to do a huuuuuge range of colours to do them justice!
You can get your own Sanu lippie necklace today – teleport to the mainstore now.
