Dance in Second Life Challenge

I gotta admit, this challenge was pretty intimidating. I remember the umpteenth times I’ve tried to capture video and not having it come out looking like a hot mess of mesh. But as I read through the comments at Strawberry’s place (blog, home, place you know!), came across Skell Dagger’s mini tutorial for some freeware I’ve not tried before.

And just like magic, it worked! Bit choppy but 30 seconds of a Studio 4D animation is all I need to share, what one of my favorite pastimes in Second Life has and will always be. (besides, shopping and the like)

Strawberry Singh’s Dance in Second Life Challenge~

1.Which dance are you sharing in the image/video and where is it from?
Studio 4D, and the animation/dance is called Step #205. (going to double check this I may be wrong -.-)

2. Which is your favorite dance in Second Life?
I have two actually besides the one from Studio 4D.. oh, that’s three then :/
This one by Markus Adkins (Humanoid) called Cathy
This one also by Markus Adkins called Sven… Besides Studio 4D, Humanoid has been a regular fave of mine as well. If Studio 4D is the place to go for good hand placement (dunno what to call it) then Humanoid would be the place to go for feet, uh, placement in my humble, non knowledgeable opinion.

3. What are your favorite dance animation stores in Second Life?
Studio 4D and Humanoid

4. Are you a frequent dancer in Second Life?
Yes and unashamedly so. Only this time it’s not for money hah.

5. Are you a frequent dancer in the real world?
The timing of this challenge is so uncanny. Last week I took almost a full week off of SL everything to re-evaluate bad habits I’ve picked up, none good for my physical health anyway. And one thing that has always helped me get back into shape is dancing. I used to teach local hula classes before I had the kids, and its something I’ve started up again, at least the hula bit.

I also signed up for, and don’t laugh okay? Zumba! It just so happens one of my coworkers is an instructor, and I guess I won’t feel so uncomfortable. Dancing has always been my preferred means of exercise…well okay second means oO.

Glad you could join me today and do visit Strawberry’s Blog and Meme Challenges, there are at least a year’s worth of prompts you can pick from and they’re always so relevant!

Enjoy the day!
