THE SUNS of the HYPERVERSE

The avatar adventures of Sunbeam Magic includes many Suns.  Before I came and immersed myself in OpenSim I had many (many) alts.  At one time in Second Life I think I counted a total of 25 *LOL*… many were used for Roleplay as for a couple years AAcme and I were totally into RP.  Others were made to ‘re-create’ ourselves as many times we tried to “quit” the world and vowed never to come back.  It seemed to be taking over our real life time and emotions ran high at times over silly incidents. After over a decade since we first discovered virtual worlds now I can not even remember the whys or what for regarding the high emotions!

When we first went to an OpenSim grid (3rdRock and InWorldz) we made new avatars for new names and jumped in with both feet, socializing, becoming an Events Manager, building, creating, opening shops, managing others’ regions, Mentoring, joining Admin teams… you name it we tried it! Then we found other grids as they popped up and before HG you had to join them to see them.  So as the years went on I became a member of over a dozen grids.  Some (most) still have my original avatar on file, even if I have not logged into that particular grid in over a year.  Amazing! I did decide after roaming away from the closed grids to always be ‘Sunbeam Magic’.  IT goes back to my grass roots, as when I first joined Second Life, the legacy grid, I started as ‘Sunbeam’ Jewell… changed to Magic as surname because I feel these worlds are MAGICAL!

Below are a few of the profile shots from the many grids I am a member of:

I’m sure I have other Sun’s out there… SimValley, Discovery, Zetaworlds, The Adult Grid, Virtual Highway ring a bell! But forgot the passwords and couldn’t get my Profile pic to show you my dear friends.  So I’m stuck with only 13 images to preserve and record for future prosperity.  Plus I did not include any of my still alive and breathing avatars in Second Life (about 3 or 4 or them I believe).  Anyways, thanks for joining me in my trip down Avatar Lane!

As Always, Step in Sunshine, Be Happy and enjoy your lifes!

WHAT’s IN A NAME?

In Virtual Worldz you get to pick any name you want! YAY! well in the beginning when Dude and I first started (Second Life ~ 4/2005) they gave you lists and lists of last names to choose from… but your first name that was  your choice.  My very first name was ‘Sunbeam Jewell’ and Dude was ‘Pocketbook Writer’ (a die hard Beatles fan lol).  We really got into the ‘partying’ part of  SL and being mature and married forever thought we could handle it. NOT!  During our five years in SL we often decided VW was destroying our RL existence and would kill off our avatars and accounts and say”Never again!” .  HA! within a couple months we made up new rules for us to follow and would create another avatar and try again.

Here are a few of the names I can remember just to show you how many we had:  Sunbeam Jewell, Pocketbook Writer, Mimzy Runningbear, AAcme Skytower, Ruby Glaz, Samspade Atlas, Tootsie Hirsch, Slo Pokie, Tehrina Atlas, Ijust Stand, Gidget Pick, Kohana Schimmer, Cinnamon Nightfire, AAbbee Fall, AAcme Fall, Venus Moonshadow, Virtual Builder, Evvie Silverweb, Abel Lastchance, Sunbeam Magic, Duderz Lebowski… I know there were many others lol but 22 seems quite a lot to me 🙂  We’ve been human, dragons, mermaids, tinies, fairys, dogs, and just plain odd looking avatars like AAcme’s current one:

Some say you can tell the type of person an avatar is just by the name they choose.  And now with Open Source grids many grids allow you to choose your last name too.  The ‘Dark’ names (the ones I call Dark)  are scary like “Monster Gonnakillya” or “Nyour Face” ) often are used just for roleplay in Vampire venues or the such.  Many just want to shock you and enjoy griefing or harassing.  Then there are the ‘Sex’ names like “Pussy Wet” or “Longjohn Dong” lol.  You know what they are all about! 

With so many VW grids now available, many are using the same name in each grid.  So if you are new to Virtual Worldz my advice is choose a name you like and you feel enhances your personality.  A name says a lot more than you may think!
