Hi! Thanks for taking a chance to read about who I am! My name is Suri Alex and I’m an avatar in the virtual meta-verse Second Life. I’m 25 years old and I attend graduate school in the United States. I also am a published author & scholar, and I’m currently working on a book chapter on avatar creation and identity through the lens of visual rhetoric for a novel titled “Challenging the Virtual: Women’s Cultural Experiences in Second Life.”
In-world I spend my time crafting fashion reviews and styling outfits and shopping! I started blogging May 2009, so this blog is kind of a journey through my looks and my development in Second Life. Using an inspiration of RL Haute Couture from the likes of Madame Coco Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, and Stella McCartney, I try to find ways to combine and embed my foundational knowledge in fashion to create new and exciting ways to look at virtual identities. When not photographing for blog posts and picking up fantastic freebies, I spend my time enjoying friends, and saying things I shouldn’t.
I hope you all enjoy my blog, its filled with tips, tricks and styles that I’m inspired by. I try to make my look a mix of a “high and low” with both free and non-free pieces. I would say I’m flexible in my style but gravitate to tried and true basics with extra special styling. Please keep the comments coming and letting me know what you think! I really enjoy hearing from all of you!
