I love to build and create things. I


Joined 8 years ago

About Myself

I love building and creating beautiful environments. Creating something from a cube is like magik! I am an artist, creator, and weirdo, not in a bad way. I like creepy things, but not gore so much. :) I like making friends, though I am an introvert. I am comfortable with people that I know well and they know me and still like me anyway. :)

My Interests

Building, art, music, reading, writing, history, science, learning new things, and talking to interesting and unique people, even though I am an introvert. I open up to the right people. I force myself to be social because when you get right down to it, it is the people and the love we share that are more important than the things we leave behind. I like kind people. It is easier and more pleasant for everyone else to be a nice person.

I'm Looking For

Collaborators on an upcoming project, open to people that work well with others and have skills I don't have or can enhance my own.

Favorite Quote

"Only tears of sorrow can wash out the stain of shame, only pangs of suffering can blot out the fires of lust." The Red Spider

Music I Like

Everything but Rap. Music should make love to your ears, not torment them.

Films I Like

Too many!! I have a wide variety of interests from sappy romance to hardcore horror/fantasy/Sci-fi to thought-provoking documentaries.

Books I Like

Anything by Piers Anthony.
I love lots of types and genres and authors though. I enjoy books that teach me and allow me to discover something new. Usually, the ones that are heavy and you sit on a coffee table to make yourself look smart for company. Yes, I read those too! I used to read cereal boxes, but I outgrew that! Read and you will love your brain! :)

My Heroes

My sis, Ms. Kitty/Kal. She makes me proud!
My Mama. She made me strong.

OpenSimulator Version

Who cares? It will change.

LaviaLavine: We had a very good time and great music, it was lots of fun! 7 days ago
On April 9th, the Board of Directors convened and resolved to augment its membership by two individuals, thereby ensuring a quorum. Subsequently, it was unanimously decided to extend membership offers to Unadecal Masala and Roland Francis. I am pleased to confirm that both candidates graciously accepted, and on April 11th, our inaugural board meeting took place, yielding fruitful outcomes.

The newly appointed board members will undertake pivotal responsibilities, including reviewing and adjudicating art submissions, voting on prospective projects, and contributing to strategic decisions concerning the gallery's operations. Additionally, they will engage in various board-related duties.

To foster creativity, we are excited to announce the integration of a dedicated workspace within the gallery premises, facilitated by a small sim. This space will serve as a collaborative hub for artists, providing an opportunity for mutual encouragement, support, and artistic synergy within the Open Sim community.

We extend heartfelt congratulations to Una and Roland on their appointments. Your expertise and commitment will undoubtedly enrich our board, and we eagerly anticipate your contributions.

Sacred Savanah
Amidst the ancient sands and beneath an ethereal orange sky that seems to hold the echoes of bygone battles, there lies a land born anew from the ashes of war and destruction. Here, in this sacred Savannah, nature and history intertwine in a delicate dance of resilience and regeneration.
As the sun dips low on the horizon, casting a warm, amber glow over the arid landscape, the land seems to exhale a collective sigh—a testament to the trials it has endured and the hope that now stirs within its depths. The scorched earth, once ravaged by conflict, now bears the promise of rebirth, as tender shoots of green push their way through the barren soil, reclaiming their rightful place in the sun.
In this landscape of renewal, a sanctuary arises—a haven for both endangered wildlife and priceless relics of antiquity. Here, beneath the watchful gaze of the ancient pyramids, elephants roam freely, their majestic forms silhouetted against the vibrant hues of the setting sun. Lions, once symbols of power and conquest, now find solace in the shadows of crumbling temples, their fierce spirits tempered by the wisdom of ages past.
But it is not only the animals that find sanctuary in this sacred land. Nestled amidst the dunes lie ancient ruins and forgotten tombs, relics of a civilization lost to time. Carved from the very bedrock of the earth, these monuments stand as silent witnesses to the ebb and flow of history, their weathered facades bearing the scars of countless generations.
Here, among the whispers of the wind and the shifting sands, the past is preserved and honored—a reminder of the enduring legacy of those who came before. As night falls and the stars emerge like jewels scattered across the heavens, the land seems to pulse with quiet, timeless energy—a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the eternal cycle of life, death, and rebirth.
Are you an artist, photographer, or sculptor in the realm of Open Sim? If so, I extend a warm invitation to showcase your exceptional creations at Le Beau Retrouve, my forthcoming art gallery.

With only a few spaces left to adorn with your art, and ample room for sculptures both within the gallery and amidst the surrounding landscapes — whether along winding paths or visible from the tranquil rivers — there's boundless opportunity for your work to captivate and inspire.

Given the limited availability, I encourage you to reach out at your earliest convenience to explore the possibility of featuring your art in our opening exhibits. Please note, we're currently excluding AI-generated art for a future showcase.

Rest assured, you maintain full ownership of your creations. Rather than relinquishing them, I kindly request that you personally arrange their display upon joining our group. Moreover, you need not be confined to the same grid to participate and showcase your artistry.

As we anticipate our Grand Opening Party, complete with a lively DJ and festivities aplenty, I'm excited for the vibrant community that will converge to celebrate creativity and expression.

In preparation, please have a brief biography ready, providing insight into yourself and your artistic journey. Feel free to include landmark coordinates to your region or grid, as well as links to websites or any additional resources showcasing your portfolio.

Isn't this thrilling? I'm genuinely passionate about art and eagerly anticipate the opportunity to collaborate with you. Looking forward to connecting soon!

Aurora Starchild: Oooooh amazing project! 2 months ago
It took me about 3 years and 3 grids to finally get this castle built. Starborne Keep will take some time to explore. There is so much to see in The Land Of Xzar, plan to stay awhile. Please, don't just stand there and cam. You won't hear the sounds of the land and you won't see the details. You can get a notecard with Landmarks to help you get around at the landing. Use them, walk around, explore. If I am on, say hi. Strangers are only friends you have not met yet.

JayR Cela: This looks great. 2 months ago
At Marsala Al Kohav, you can find all kinds of things from architecture to landscaping and everything in between. While you are there, use the teleport board to come visit my little shop where you will find things like this. Love and Light! ~Star~

Did you know that there are other vendors at Masala Al Kohav? Yes! I am one of them. I have a sweet little shop with all original content made by me. I offer beautiful furniture and decor that add a finishing touch to your home. I made these beautiful bottles with textures made with AI. Get some of them and maybe you will find something else you like. I also have houses and other architecture on the lower level. While you are there, check out our other vendors as well. Thank you for shopping with us. Love and Blessings! ~Star~
Hey Lovelies!
Look what I made! This is a working YouTube TV, though you can access other websites on the Internet like FMovies and other free sites. I used Media, so there are no scripts to lag your region. It is at my shop at Masala Al Kohav. Use the teleporter to choose Star Ravenhurst Designs to put you at my door. Maybe you will find something else you like? Original creations of items for finishing touches that make a house into a home.

When you come to visit, enable a shared environment and walk around as the whole region is parceled into a dozen or more places...I lost count. :) Even the rivers are parceled so they have their name in the viewer when you take a raft down them or cross over them on a bridge. I have made EEPs and a lot of the parcels are different so the skies will change as you walk along. They could have been changed from your last visit because I am always messing with the skies and making new ones. Or you could look up in the sky and jump on a dragon as some circle the whole region, but sadly the skies will remain the same because of where the prim is that they are attached to. But if you see something of interest, you can jump off to explore, and the sky will change. I have a new Dragon that you can navigate on your own as well, but he needs a little work. I hope you will enjoy The Land Of Xzar. See you soon!
Hi Friends! I uploaded a new video of me trying to learn to ride this new Dragon a friend was so kind to gift me. The camera angle is difficult, so I have been messing with the camera and hopefully will find a good setting for riding him, cause it is so much fun! Come see me and you can ride him too!
https://youtu.be/hQcOj0SbRYc?si=SDuoEJ6c_c2tZ7ds

Are you looking for some Magik? Check out my little Magik shop in Devil's Fork. Happy October!!

Arial view of Dragonspire. All of my region, The Land Of Xzar, is parceled, even the rivers so the places in the novel can all be named. Enable shared environment, though I keep messing with the skies. I can't make up my mind. Oh! And have your sound on. Though there are still silent pockets through the land. It all takes time...still building the last of it.
There are two entrances directly to Devil's Fork, the back way in, from Dragonspire, through the mountains, or down a lovely path to a gate. So after your visit to Dragonspire, (the house and gatehouse are my versions of a similar house built by Kismet in SL and I am slow at furnishing it, so mostly empty) take a stroll over to Devil's Fork, explore my little town of mostly my own builds in prim and texture, and have a drink at The Grande Phoenix or my favorite dive, Charlie's Bar. ;) See you soon!

BTW a lot of folks are visiting, no one is commenting or reviewing. Even if it is a bad review it would be appreciated.
Thanks for reading this long azz post! Much Love and let's spread it around!! It will come back to you. Promise.

Staked Garden, Hadean's Castle, The Land Of Xzar. Newest scene build.

Are you looking for some treasure? An experience? Something to do on a lazy afternoon?
Use Shared Environment for the best experience. Have sound up. Graphics as high as your rig can take.

Now hop on a Dragon and come to visit The Land Of Xzar and explore the unique town of Devil's Fork. This is one of the gates that will get you into Devil's Fork.
WELCOME!!!
Take your time to explore this unique, one-of-a-kind build. Except for one or three, all the buildings in the town were built by me over time, across several grids I have called home at one time or another.

Thank the Gods for suitcases and transfer abilities so I didn't lose my creations! Grids come and go so protect your assets!! You won’t find cookie-cutter buildings here that you see everywhere else. Some were built with a plan and some had Magic infused in them because I had no idea where I was going with it, I just started throwing down prims and hoped for the best! :)

Anyway, if you have some time and enjoy new experiences, come explore the town and see what treasures are inside the shops. Most items are free to copy including many of my original creations. There is a Magik Shop that is a must-see! The movie theater (not my build) has a working screen to watch movies that I did make. Good for a Date Night!

The 50-60s Shell Station is an old build and I had to make most of the textures for it, so that may be of interest to check out. Be sure and explore the Cathedral of the Ancients and the Robotics office building across from it. Don’t cam, walk inside, enjoy exploring. Hear the sounds.

To relax, have a drink at one of several bars in town with your friends and listen to the sounds of the town..or hit play on the music. I highly recommend Charlie's Bar, but don't bring a crowd as it is a hole-in-the-wall sort of joint. Literally.

I found the Industrial part of town a bit of a challenge. It was fun to make most of the buildings and you want to have your sound up as there is a lot going on in that part of town! I think it was harder for me to build as I am the least familiar with that sort of industry. Plus “stuff” isn’t as easy to find. Let me know what you think.

If you have not been to The Land Of Xzar, why not? Today I am suggesting (and inviting) everyone who cares to visit, to check out Devil's Fork. But the land has so much much more for you to discover...

If you made it this far, THANKS for reading, and I hope you will enjoy exploring Devil's Fork as much as I enjoyed building it. Let me know what you think of my little town.

Come to The Land Of Xzar and discover a magical place like no other! Devil's Fork is a fairly large town waiting for you to explore and you may even find a thing or two to take home with you. :)

One of the things I love about Devil's Fork is that it is a unique town. Almost every building in the town was built by me, for better or worse. :) What you see here is one side of a 4-store block with a 5th shop on one end. This is an old build I recently remodeled. These are my favorite shops in the town, Star Magik Has a few things made by me, but mostly tons of things I have found in OS and you can get a copy of most things in the shop. The perfect destination for your magical needs, so come visit and stay awhile. If you like The Land Of Xzar, I hope you will consider dropping a review. Have a Magikal Day/Night and see you soon!
I want to thank everyone that came to my Grand Opening. Thanks to all of you, it was a fun party. I appreciate the support and new friendships I made. Our total count was 41...me being the 1. :) A special thanks to Lavia and Unadecal for helping me spread the word, and Una especially for being there to make sure things ran smoothly (they did) and always being supportive of my work. Well, Lavia is always supportive too. Love you both! I also want to thank Metal Tango for providing the music, including her own music. She has her own band in RL and if we can ever talk her into performing inworld...she would shoot to total "Stardom"! She is that GOOD!
The Land Of Xzar is now open for visitors so please come any time and explore. I have spent the past 6 months rebuilding for the 5th time!! Now I get OARs, so this should be the last build, though you are never truly finished, I think. Like my castle. It is like the Winchester house in CA. It keeps growing. The whole region is divided into parcels, including the rivers so they have their own parcel and names. They all have their own EEP as well. There are a few parcels I am still working on, but the rest is pretty much done. Be sure and have your viewer set to shared environment and have sound on as there is sound everywhere. There IS music, but you are missing out if that is what you are listening to rather than the sounds of the land, though I am still working on adding more as there are still some silent pockets. Don't be afraid to say hi if you see me and I promise I won't bother you as I want you to enjoy exploring. The Land Of Xzar is the visual of my upcoming novel by the same name. It should be out by the end of the year. Thanks again to everyone that came. You all ROCK!!!

McCall Technologies-Devil's Fork, The Land Of Xzar

Final Version. I like it a lot better with some brick added and some other textures you really will only see in person because of the shadows. and it is a photo, so flattened. What do you think?
I hope everyone is having a lovely Valentine's Day where ever you are in the world!
The land of Xzar is coming along. I can't believe it has been only 4 months since I migrated to the Genesis RP grid! What a journey! I am building this fantasy world based on my story for the 5th time!! I am this [ ] close to inviting you all to come to have a look. The land of Xzar is a mixture of past, present, and future. This is one of my latest builds. McCall Technologies is a Robotics company and this is the corporate hive. I just can't figure out what to do with the front. Any suggestions? I love building fountains so they are all over the place. Still, it is one option. I am thinking of jet fountains along the sides in front. Or they could be planters. Shrug.
Edited to add a picture of the final Look. Added fountains and found the statue in my inventory.
Today I want to tell you about Haven of Memories and my Dear friend, Lavia Lavine who created it with her own builds as well as stuff from many talented folks in our Metaverse. One of her best talents in MHO is putting together "Scenes". One of her best qualities is her loving heart...and her orneriness. ;) This fountain was put together using her own stuff as well as many other talented creators' work. You can't tell by the photo but the water moves down the steps perfectly and she worked hard to make it happen. Amazing to see in person! It isn't linked so you can't just come and grab it. I am showing this to you because it is simply stunning and the whole region is peaceful, comforting, and beautiful for reflection, memories, and feeling close to your loved ones. What a beautiful Memorial Garden! You don't even have to have an account on the grid to have a memorial of your loved one here. The only requirement is that they lived a Virtual life on any grid in the Metaverse. It is a way for all of us to remember them in one place that we can visit at any time. I took this photo because I thought this was so beautiful and everyone should know that it is there for all of us!!! Thanks, Lavia!

My Sister Ms. Kitty shared this with me this morning. She finds the best stuff! Especially when she knows I have an interest in something. This is around 18 minutes and worth every minute of your time. It will open, blow, and astound your mind. At least it did me. A thousand kudos to the creator of this short film!
I hope it is OK to post a link here. I just want everyone to watch this. SO creative.
https://youtu.be/ZWsSkY8EvF4
I finally came up with something I could use these textures on. Executioner's Pavilion. It isn't easy to photograph and probably looks better in person. When you walk in drums start pounding with a script that starts it up when you get close, so they aren't going all the time. Things are coming along...

Whispering Forest now "Whispers". Opening to the public soon.

I have a new shop at the Mall on the Genesis grid!! Star Ravenhurst Designs has original content, mostly prim twisted. You can take a TP to the Specialty shops to find it. Perhaps you will find some Christmas gifts for your friends and family! Also, check out the many houses and buildings at the mall on the lower levels. I have a few free buildings for you and will be adding more of my builds and content. There are also many builds by Thundergod Thor, Lavia, and Gramzy. Much Love and Peace to all of us in the New Year!

Sanctuary of the Ancients

My newest build because I wanted a larger cathedral and now it is available to share with anyone who may want it. You can view it, walk around inside of it, and take a copy of the box which also contains church pews with various sits that I built specifically for this cathedral. I have other builds in this area of the mall you may like as well.

My Reviews

Textures Trees, & Scripts

I had trouble seeing the Teleporter even though everything else had rezzed quickly. Safine was very helpful in resolving the problem. There are lots of beautiful textures to choose from. What a great resource for builders! If you are looking for a script, perhaps you will find one here. I feel very welcome and I look forward to visiting again.

ETZEL

I would give it 10 stars if I could. Samhain (Halloween) is my favorite time of year and Thomas brings all the horror and fun alive. If you go, WALK around, otherwise, you will miss something. Camming does not give you the best experience, and that applies to wherever you go in Open Sim. Give yourself time to explore and immerse yourself in the scenery. You will be happy that you did. Promise. Tha...

Chubelz_Welcome

I went looking for something else and found so much more! Beautiful place, with a smart layout, and some really good stuff I have not seen anywhere else. Sadly, I can only give it 4 stars as there are several items not set up for sale/copy. It deserves 5 stars once this is corrected. Thank you for all the wonderful things I was able to get. Overall, a good shopping experience.

PanDelights

I spent at least two hours exploring this lovely region. The owners have done a fantastic job building this wonderful place and the attention to detail is just the sort of thing that I appreciate. Well worth visiting!

The Garth

This is the best-organized freebie shopping place I have ever seen making it easy to find what you are looking for and I found a lot of things I didn't even know I needed! Every area is clearly labeled which I found to be a big help as I was looking for something specific. Sadly, I am still on the hunt for it but I am happy I discovered this awesome place! I will return again and again. Thank you...

Wyldwood Bayou Rockin' The Blues

I have been going to Wyldwood for going on two months for different events they have hosted and I am so happy I found this place. Kith is warm and welcoming and a genuinely kind person and the tunes he spins speak to me. The dances are the best too! A big plus! I can be socially awkward and going to places on my own is never easy, but Kith and the Tribe as well as the other DJs make me feel like I...

ieko land

What a charming place! Take your time exploring this region as it has a lot to offer. The circus is one of the best I have ever seen in SL or OS. Such fun! I loved everything about my visit and will definitely visit again and bring friends. Thank you for a wonderful tour. Such a treat!

Kaneville

The region is beautiful and well done. The farm is one of the best I have seen in OS and the town/village is charming. Time stands still as you explore the peaceful region rich in color and textures. It is a place you will want to visit again and again. 10 Stars!

Camballa

This is one of my favorite Designers and I am so thankful to have such beautiful clothing to wear. My Avatar is a classic I have had since beginning in OS 7 years ago (I have tweaked the shape a LOT) and it is often hard to find nice system clothing. I think I "bought" out the store! They also have a lot of nice clothing for men. Be sure to look outside the shops as well because they have many uni...

Outworldz Alexandria East

This is a must-see if you enjoy Lord Of The Rings/Hobbit storytelling as the region is a story come to life! You will love exploring this fantastic Hobbit Village rich in color and detail! If you explore on your own, you won't feel lonely as there are busy NPCs everywhere you look which brings the village to life and makes it an immersive experience. One of the best builds of this type I have seen...
