Siyu Suen owns a business in world called Illusions, where she sells sculpted Venetian inspired masquerade masks. She's also made a name for herself creating artistic and extremely unique accessories like intricate hats, veils, jewelry and other exotic costume accessories. Her store is situated on the island of Carnivale,which was generously donated by a friend and patron of her art: Vanessa Noarlunga.
She first came to Second Life in early October of 2006, purely out of curiosity. Exploring posed confusion and frustration, because all she was seeing was an ugly and plotless computer game. That was until she discovered the beautiful, artistic setting of the Isle of Wyrms, and got a taste of what could be accomplished with the tools Second Life provided. After being inspired by the setting, she tried picking up the build tools to see just what she could do. After a couple of morphed spheres and butchered toruses, she sat down and created her very first object... a 26 prim rose textured with a texture out of the Library. After being greatly encouraged by the community of the Isle of Wyrms and her own fiance, she continued making little things that she fancied, including her first mask (similar to one that she owns in her first life). She put her first masks up for sale on a wall in the Isle of Wyrms Marketplace, and soon got addicted to seeing people around who were wearing things she had made. She soon found that she had a great passion for pouring love into building things from history, nature, or her imagination.
She has only ever entered one build competition, where she won the title "Builder Most Likely To Take Over The World" from a vote of the kind people of the Isle of Wyrms.
