Loveseeker Bracelets for your Virtual Valentine’s Day

Category: Shopping, Valentines Day by Stone Culdesac

Looking for a present for Valentine’s Day for that special someone in your Second Life? I found this great pair of bracelets at a store a friend of mine is building, Whispered Dreams, the bracelets are called Loveseeker couple’s cuffs, and are a very big way to announce how you feel about someone in Second Life to everyone around you in Second Life! You add their name and special code to your cuff, and they do the same to theirs, and they start doing stuff when you get near each other.

Loveseeker Cuffs

From the notecard:

These special cuffs are to be worn with partners. (Of course, you can wear them alone if you wish as just an accessory)

They were designed to be worn by each partner and as the partner nears the stone begins to glow and sends a special message (in any language you wish it to be in) to the partner at varying distances. (The partner name and the messages can be changed in the config card in each cuff). The color of the glow changes as you get nearer to your partner and when you are at the closest range a heart poof appears.

After a time, the glow disappears, and you then you are left with the basic beauty of the cuff. You can change the color of the stone (but not the glow) by typing “/7 list” to get the list of color and “/7 color to set the color.

special note: the time in which the glow disappears can be set in config card. You can also remove the poofer if you do not like it.

please try and enjoy the loveseeker’s cuff(s)

I talked Ari into helping me try these out, much to her chagrin, although I think she’s got a thing for me. ;)

The cuffs light up green at 96 meters and you have the option of using the comments they already have in there, or making your own. Here is what Ari’s said at 96 meters: “Aribella Lafleur says You gotta be kidding me!”

Would I kid you Ari? They light up yellow at 20 meters and here is what her cuff had to say to me then, “Aribella Lafleur says You gotta be kidding me!”.

Cuffs at 20 meters

Hmm, is there an echo in here? The cuffs light up red when you are within 5 meters of each other, and of course they say something then too, “Aribella Lafleur says I’m on my way… outa here”.

Cuffs at 5 meters

There are also standing around messages, Ari’s said “Aribella Lafleur says Have you put out the garbage yet?” and “Aribella Lafleur says Bite me”.

They also, when you are within five meters of each other, spew out a big bunch of hearts, as a symbol of your love. You can stop it from doing this, in case you go into a busy sim or you just don’t like it.

    Stone, you know I can’t pass up the opportunity to comment on this one….
    Here’s what Stone’s bracelet said to me:
    “Stone Culdesac says This space for rent” (ALWAYS the opportunist aren’t you?)
    “Stone Culdesac says That’s not a knife…” (Next time it very well could be a knife… how did I get roped into trying this out in the first place????)
    “Stone Culdesac says Fosters, Austrailian for beer” (Wow, that line might work on a guy… but you didn’t even spell “Australian” correctly… and you pronounce it “Orstrayun” if you want to sound like a local)
    Last, but by no means least…
    “Stone Culdesac says So long and thanks for all the fish” (Is that my cue to saw off my arm and run screaming from the sim?)
    As all can see Stone is definitely head over heels for me *cough, cough, choke*
    What the bracelet neglected to tell him was that I hurriedly went and took out a restraining order ;-)
    All joking aside, it is a novel idea for a Valentine’s Day gift for that special someone, or alternatively you could use it for a really original slant on the “Dear John” letter theme. In Stone’s clearly delusional state I’m not sure even the “Dear John” approach would work. Can anyone tell me where I can get a tazer in Second Life???

    A tazer? Allright, now you’re starting to see it my way. ;)
