Mixing some old favourites with some incredible new items. Clothing, footwear, and stunning accessories, most of the new items are MESH, and it really is a testament to how enriched our Second Life is becoming with the addition of this to the grid. While speaking of Mesh it is definitely time to mark your calendars with FaMESHed about to start on May 1st. Cracked and Vanity Mirror the team behind the label Cracked Mirror are bringing designers together under the one roof to share their Mesh items with the public.
This event will be monthly, running for three of the four weeks of each month. The idea is that you will be able to get a taste of different creations in the one spot, so that you may come for one or two known to you designers, and stay for all. Much like what is done with the big annual events in Second Life. The first list of Designers participating in this event is definitely a great one, so be sure to visit and grab as many demos as you can, then explore further visiting their main stores and seeing the quality extend even further.
Second Life allows everyone to dress anyway they like, whether it be casual, fantasy or formal, there are no real limitations on how we can express ourselves with fashion. I once met a man in Second Life – a customer at one of my previous jobs – he was buying a suit from me, and explained that in RL he wore overalls and jeans everyday as he was a builder…but in Second Life he only wore suits, that for him the ability to dress up was his escape from RL and that he always longed for the past where Men and Women would dress up a lot more often.
Ok so the One Bad Pixel Designer guess who contest ended tuesday night, and if you didn’t enter then don’t be too upset, because even though you will not have won their next release, you will still win in being able to purchase it, because it is going to be just as awesome as their first collection. The answer is HERE and many of you will not be surprised at all, knowing that the two content creators are an incredible pairing, and that they are both chock full of talent. I for one cannot wait to see more from them as One Bad Pixel, but also always look forward to the items released under their own individual stores. Now onto another duo…
When it has come to texture clothing, I have always been a bit meh about layers being combined, not really a bit, more like a lot really. But that was because of all the possibilities I could foresee with pieces of each item, the chance to incorporate parts into other looks and so on. That desire has not changed, not really, but with Mesh one thing I have noticed that when on the go, having all in one looks is such a timesaver, and also just this side of really innovative. Yes it can allow for a quick snatch and wear, but it also gives you a real idea at the full representation of a look. Do I still wish the items were broken up, sure, of course I do, but when items are so good together, then I will just relish that we have them at all.
Buying a new dress in RL is something that can be so exciting, depending on what the dress is for. Whether a first date, a night out, or a special occasion. When you find the right one it is even more exhilarating, you cannot wait to wear it, cannot wait to be complimented on it and in it.
I had an exciting evening last night, it was the launch of the New One Bad Pixel store, and what a night, and what an incredible MESH collection. The whole night was surrounded by intrigue, “Who are the Designers?” behind One Bad Pixel…have you guessed yet, have you sent in your note-card with your guess so that you can win the contest? I will give you a hint, and hopefully not get in trouble for doing so but here goes – LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION. So make sure you go and grab the info note-card when you are in the store buying all the goodies. Also when there you will want to join the subscriber as there are a gorgeous pair of cigarette pants in copper as a gift. Also if you have the group room you will want to join and get an extra dose of store credit on your purchases if you are wearing the group tag.
A reminder to all, about the wonderful events still taking place over the grid. Pose Fair is still going strong, and Wear Gray is on only for a few more days, so make sure you check them both out. Todays poses are actually from Pose Fair, as a returning store released there for the event, and it is good to see them back.
Wow what a day, it is 3pm for me, and I feel like I got nothing done. A few pictures at least but then I had issues with software and stuff, so lots of fun with that, not. I did get to as I said take a few pictures at least, and I really love how they turned out. I hope you do too.
Today I went to a sim called Sleepy Bones, it is a sim built by the talented Turnip Sorbet, the builder of Lula and other fabulous builds around Second Life. The sim is not going to remain open at this time, but you really should go by and have a look before it closes tonight. The residential feel is just so perfect, and to end it all they are having a garage sale, and if Whimsy and I left anything you should grab up the bargains.
This cinched shortish length blazer made me think of vintage finds, such as ones you find at opportunity stores and/or garage sales and market stalls. I love that it is just shy of being too small looking, that the colours are lovely, but it is the style and overall look that I love.
Gorgeous Yongho of Juicybomb – or Gogo as many call her – contacted me this afternoon to let me know about a very important event taking place. This event is not in Second Life, but is very important to a Second Life Resident, a member of not only our Second Life Community but also the Blogging Community. This is her blog here, and this is the event here.
Now calling it an event may seem a bit odd, but winning this prize of a van that will get her around and make a change to her whole life, seems to me an event and worthy of the title. Renee suffers from Congenital Muscular Dystrophy, and while she seems to manage with an upbeat and incredibly caring attitude to life and her friends, this is a disease that doesn’t just hinder but it hurts, a lot. Renee talks about it somewhat in the article that accompanies the contest info, so please take the few minutes it will take out of your day, and vote, as many times as you can. This is one thing that every Second Life resident can get behind, and it will not cost you anything but a few moments and may just change the life of someone deserving of it.
Let as many people as you know, know how they can vote for Renee also.
