Blogging 101

One never know what secret tricks are hidden in the complex makeup of a blog so I thought it would be fun to do a bloggers class, Blogging 101 via world press. Over the next few weeks I’ll be posting my assignments. Today I am to introduce myself and share why I blog.
In the virtual world of Second Life I am Solas Na Gealai, galic for moonlight. In 1999 I was diagnosed with young onset Parkinson’s disease. Four years later I was forced to retire from a very stressful but loved career as a fashion designer, That shattered me, I felt lost and useless until 2007 when I discovered Second Life, for someone like me it was a dream come true. Although energy and time for health reasons is limited, I taught myself the art of content design for 3D platforms, with it I combine my love of period costumes and fine art to make immersive fashion for others to use. My blog and virtual shop is a reflection of that love.

This dress was crafted in a program called Maya, Textures for the 3D Item was created in Photo Shop. Items were uploaded into Second life, worn by Solas to give us the final rendering.
