One Voice [Part 2]

I apologize for being MIA! This post is waaaayyy past due 😦 I had to deal with RL issues and health concerns.

Here’s a few more items available at ONE VOICE which is ending tomorrow.

One Voice [Part 2] A

The dress I am wearing is League’s item for One Voice and it includes 3 cuts. When I learned that you can mix’n’match the dresses to create a look like the one I did, I instantly bought the fatpack. Considering the fact that you can create tons of different color combinations, it’s worth it! Two thumbs up for the creativity of Nena Janus.

Wasabi Pills introduced a new version of Teeloh for the fundraiser and you can get it in brown or blonde. I really like the edgy style of this hair. It is not something that I would usually wear but it is fun to come out of my comfort zone once in a while.

You can also pick up these heels by Ju at One Voice. I was a bit hesitant about it at first because I originally wasn’t a big fan of the split-tip style. But it grew on me! ^_^

One Voice [Part 2] B

Bilo’s OV item is a preview of the Haifa skin with purple and gold eye makeup, flushed cheeks, and pink lips. It comes with dark and light brows and a beauty mark.

**I will be updating this post soon with the CREDITS. For now, here’s  a TP to ONE VOICE.

 

 

 

One Community, ONE VOICE

“Opportunity makes a thief.” – Francis Bacon

I really do appreciate the time and effort that content creators give to bring us high quality products. Without them, this blog would not have existed. That is why it is deeply saddening (and infuriating) that some people can just steal from a legit creator and claim a product to be his/her own.

One Voice

On July 9th, you can be part of the ONE VOICE revolution! Although one of the main purpose of ONE VOICE is to help Gala Phoenix (CURIO) raise enough funds for legal fees, this revolution also aims to safeguard the rights of content creators and promote awareness.

UPDATE on Gala Phoenix

It’s been a month since we’ve heard from Gala Phoenix of CURIO and today, she breaks the silence by releasing a statement on CURIO’s website. Click this link to read her post.

And here is a part of her statement explaining the fundraiser:

Curio is my primary source of income, and without it, I’m barely able to get by, much less afford $20,000 for a court case in another country. However, Curio is also a labor of love, and I will not just sit back and let a competitor’s lies and malice rob me of it.

From July 9 – July 16, 2012, a number of extremely generous content creators will be holding a fundraiser in-­world at Truth District on my behalf. I cannot express the depth of my gratitude for them, and for any SLers who come out and donate to my fight. I will also be putting up an IndieGoGo campaign to raise some money.

I know I’m asking a lot. $20,000 is a massive amount of money. But even a little bit helps, and maybe we can stand up against someone who is abusing a system that is supposed to protect us all.

Update: We have been asked about whether or not Gala Phoenix is aware of the fundraiser and the answer is yes. Any further questions, please do not hesitate to IM me in-world or send me a message on Flickr.

Please feel free to post/blog/plurk this..thank you!

News about the fundraiser spread like wildfire on plurk so the organizers released more details about it:

As many of you may be aware, Gala Phoenix is currently in the midst of legal issues which have resulted in her content being removed from the grid and her major source of income lost pending their outcome. She is facing serious expenses in securing representation and taking her case to court, and the issues she’s dealing with regarding intellectual property rights should concern anyone who makes a living from SL content creation; Gala’s situation is one that any creator of original content could have the misfortune to find themselves in.

The object of this fundraiser is not only to assist Gala Phoenix but to show that the SL content creation community is stronger standing together; the event is planned for, tentatively, the second week of July (9-15 July), dates and length subject to change. Participating content creators will be offered the option of a 50% sales split or 100% donation on sales, at their discretion; if you want to create an event-exclusive item or time a new release for the event, that’s great. Venue and fine details remain to be worked out, but I’d like to thank you for your participation–and please, if you happen to have any friends or acquaintances you think may be interested in participating, pass the word along.

Contact Vivienne Graves via in-world IM or notecard if interested, and thanks!
