I have spent the last couple of days watching Madman Entertainment’s Blu-ray release of Magical Girl Raising Project. It joins the growing number of series which turn something that in children’s anime is fun and lively – into something that is more or less a colourful life-or-death battle. Going with a happier perception of what a Magical Girl is, today’s Take That (In-Game) Snap Daily Photo pictures what my magical girl form could potentially look like. Just uh… do not throw her into a battle royale with other magical girls okay?

These photos were taken in Second Life. Second Life does have a reputation for more adult content (there is no shortage of that if you look for it). However, those interested in using it to build custom avatars and take great photographs will find a lot on offer from the user-created worlds, purchasable content for your avatars, a high level of customisation and clients dedicated to taking fantastic photos. For your reference, these images include the following:

Take That (In-Game) Snap Daily Photo is an off-shoot of the upcoming Take That (In-Game) Snap article series. This looks at, celebrates and critiques how video game developers have implemented professional photography-like systems into their games. It will cover how the systems handle, just how accessible they are and, where applicable, how a modding community might be making these tools even better. With this Daily Photo spin-off series, I will be sharing individual photos from the games either covered or soon-to-be-covered in the series.
