Journey to be Ferosh

A few months ago, I joined the Ferosh | Prospective Talent group in hopes of getting a chance to work with some of Second Life’s finest stylists and photographers. Due to my sudden hiatus, I wasn’t able to share with you my delight and excitement when I saw that my editorial photos made it in to the A/W 2014 issue!

I chose the dark, gothic Autumn/Winter 2014-15 couture collection of Jean Paul Gaultier as my inspiration. Jungshin also dressed up as my arm candy for two of the photos.

Thank you to Absi, Kera, Tempest, Xandrah, Vikee, and everyone from Ferosh for the opportunity and for sharing valuable lessons that helped me push beyond my limits. Thank you, thank you! Check out the Ferosh A/W 2014 issue for styling credits and let me know what you think in the comment section below. <3

2014 SL Home & Garden Expo

2014 SL Home & Garden Expo

Announcing the 7th Annual Home and Garden Expo

Home and Garden Expo 2014, benefitting RFL of SL, opens on September 16, and runs through the 28th. Spread over nine sims, HGE features the finest in Second Life Home and Garden design product and creator tools. Over 85 participating creators have joined HGE, one of the first mega-events of the 2015 Relay For Life fundraising drive in Second Life.

Relay For Life of Second Life is in its tenth season, as Second Life residents across the grid band together to raise funds for Relay For Life and the American Cancer Society. The funds raised go to finance cancer research. During the 2014 season, RFL of SL broke the $415,000.00 USD mark for total funds raised.

This year’s HGE is supported by nine Platinum Sponsors and eight Gold Sponsors. It also includes, for the first time, a comprehensive shopping guide listing all donation items, new releases, hunt, raffle and gatcha items. New rules and a new layout for HGE reduces lag and provides ample display space for each of the participants’ products.

The 2014 HGE features the debut of the Rezzie Awards. The Rezzie Awards are specifically designed to honor the excellent work of the designers, creators, coders, and builders who make Second Life so visually stunning and interactive, and who inspire roleplay, photography, machinima, and so much more.

Nominations were open to the public through September 12th. The awards jury then selected 4 nominees to represent each of 35 categories. The nominated works are listed on the website and visitors are invited to vote for their choices there. (HGE Staff members will be excluded from the final list of nominees, and are not eligible for awards.) Voting commenced on September 14th, and will remain open through September 27th.The winners will be announced just prior to the close of Home Expo on September 28th!

Winners will receive an exclusive, customized trophy, designed by Reven Rosca. The Rezzie Awards are organized by Fallacy DeCuir, and audited by Fallacy DeCuir, Kat Alderson and DeAnn Dufaux.

Breathe Me

This is my second attempt green screening and I personally think I did a little better than my previous one. It’s tricky but so much fun to do! :P

I sometimes whine that there are far too many events in Second Life and I can barely keep up (don’t take my whining seriously… we all know that I love to shop!) but this is actually a good chance to discover up and coming brands or established ones that I wasn’t aware of (I stand around on my platform 70% of the times I am online so yes, technically I do live “under a rock”). One event to definitely check out is We <3 Roleplay – a monthly event that gratifies the role-playing community with tons of high quality items. Now, I am not an RPer but I do love playing dress up and embellishing myself with unique accessories. Some pieces available at the event are multi-functional and can be worn up and about the grid.

You can’t see the gorgeous sandals clearly so I am grabbing the official ad from Eudora3D’s flickr stream.
