A little Raggedy

Raggedy

I am supposed to be sorting inventory, so when I came across the items I have on, I couldn’t resist another speedy post.

The Ragtime Dollie is a skin that Rose Farina created for Another Fundraiser II, this is such a genius use of a base skin…the imagination that went into it is just typical of Rose. She put a lot of thought into this, thinking back to the Another Fundraiser of 2008 and remembering that it was a lot of the more outrageous skins that were popular, and she was correct.

This skin even comes with it’s own hair, not shown, but also fabulous, and until sunday it is only 50L so do not miss out. While I had the skin on and I was flitting about the sim, I thought about what a rag doll such as this is like, very limber, I remember tying my dolls legs in knots and doing all sorts of crazy things with her. That made me remember a recentish purchase of some Yoga poses, Mats and Yogo pants and top I bought.

It was actually a really interesting collaberation project between some of the stores on the same sim, and I really liked what they came up with. I grabbed a VR Studio Mobile Library out of my inventory, threw in the Yoga poses from Estetica, wore the HUD and then voila in seconds I was posing on the beautiful mats that were also dollarbies from the same store.

The hair I am wearing is from Fashionably Dead, and is tinted by me to be this colour. The hair is part of the fantastic Spring Festival taking place at Tableau at the moment. It is a beautiful back combed style, and it was because of the demo colour and a little hint from Toast herself, that I found out that a little tint can go a long way with this style… plus I am also a big fan of red heads and pink, because I have never heard anything sillier than once being told at RL work that it was a no no, what a stupid load of crap.

It has been a funny week this week, so much going on in the land of the Avatar, but there has also been more of a worker bee buzzzzzz, silent but building as people from all over are doing their thing. That’s how it seems to me anyway…I know we have been working hard on Hair Fair stuff, and Another Fundraiser is ending on the weekend, Project Fur is about to begin and Pacific Crisis Fundraiser is on until the tenth.

The skin I am wearing today is one of the Another Fundraiser II skins, this one was donated by Fishy Strawberry and is her own skin base combined with some highlights from the Sezmra skin. Not only did Fishy Strawberry do this skin for 50L at Another Fundraiser II, but also a pack of make ups as add ons that are just amazing.

Another contributor to Another Fundraiser II is Stellar, and while setting up her skins I was totally perving on the new skirts Lexi recently released, they are booty fabulous, and the plaid print comes in a great range of colours. The fact that the colours also went so well with the New Fringe Cowgirl boots from J’s was just a bonus. I haven’t been able to take these boots off since their release, they are so fantastic, and the fringing is amazing, flexi prims are not an easy task, but to get them to move in such a great way on shoes is a huge undertaking.

The leather work on these boots is just wonderful and the colours you are used to from J’s are all there, I especially like the squared off pointed toe look in these boots, very true to the style. subtle but there.Gawk released these really adorable baggy sweaters, I love a good cropped sweater, it allows for some fun layering, or to show off some of the incredible work our skin makers do on the mid section. This one is really cute because of the sculpties giving it a look that says “I could pull this down to cover up more, but I am not gonna”.

Another firm favourite in latest releases is the Follow hair from Elikatira, this style is a long hair lovers dream, but with the beautiful behind the shoulders draping that allows all avatar sizes to enjoy it, it is really simple in style but so very pretty. You can even try the demos on in the luxury of your own home, due to Elikatira being on Marketplace .

Pose Fair 2011

Pose Fair 2011 is about to start, from the 1st of April until the 15th, there are over a hundred stores on two levels. With NEW and older posesets, props and gadgetry you will not want to miss it. If you are a photographer, model, blogger or just starting out, this fair has it all. One thing that stood out this year was the growth in family orientated and childrens poses, a lot less of the ‘look at me I am fabulous’ and more of the ‘ we are family’ type of photo ops are there for the clicking, and I personally loved seeing it. There are also some amazing friends and couples poses, and the imagination shown in some of the vendor pics was a joy to see.

Make sure you set aside a lot of hours though, possibly over a few days, because to do it all at once like I just did, when not all are even set up, was a huge undertaking, but whether all at once or in stages, the layout is really clear, either clockwise or anti clockwise, you can stick to the inside circle and then outside and then move to the next level, easy.

VR Studio has a booth there this year, as you know that is the only system I will ever use, there was also other studios and gadgets, and I did notice that the move me dance system was back for another year. Some dance animations, that are fun and frivolous, and with the pics I just took some of those things that made me smile, giggle or I just felt stood out from the others in the same booth.

Speaking of giggles, hello MadDesigns you nutters, that pose set is so funny and so perfect for Second Life, I know that we have the yummy males contest each year on New World Notes, but seriously, can we now actually have some Mr SLuniverse pageants? it would be so much of a giggle.

I had a Hair Fair meeting today, because it is getting close to the deadline for applying, so making sure that we were all on the same page was the agenda. Afterwards I ran around a bit, throwing some info at some stores that have popped up in the time since the last one to now. I checked out a few ‘out there’ stores and got a little bit sad thinking about the loss of Achariya to fashion blogging in SL. If you hadn’t heard, yesterday was her last post. Who is going to blog for the future Acha’s of SL? In the old days, it was her and Ashia that did most of the ‘out there’ fashion blogging, it was never a surprise to see one of them turning up in some fire breathing alien cyborg fetish panther suit, or as a pink bunny, you know, whatever tickled them for the day. Ashia stopped last year, and now Achariya, and I think it is more of a loss than most would even think.

She will definitely be missed, and hopefully will find a way to still share with us her passion for all things different in SL.

So while out and about I ended up at Anaphora, some of you will remember that Anaphora started out at The Deck a long time ago, and he sure has grown since then to his own splashy and fabulous looking sim. Once upon a while ago too, he wasn’t that into girls hair as much as boys, but now has definitely overcome that hurdle and not only is he doing fabulous womens styles, but also recently branched out into skins.

The Alixia skin his first took many months to perfect, and you can tell from the shading on the body that a lot of the work is hand drawn, with some amazing tones and intense make ups. The character of this skin is mature and for those that lend themselves to a bit of ethnicity well I think that you will like this skin a lot. Remember demo demo demo.

The earrings I am wearing I just had to have when I saw the notice, those Tableau stores had me at hello. Yummy is a store by Polyester and yet for some reason as often as I have been in there, the name never registered properly until this time. The diamond spray of these are just wonderful, sculpted perfection and the texturing is amazing.

The coat I am wearing is from Aoharu, one of the pieces Machang returned with from her break, and she hasn’t stopped since. It has so many attachment options as well as with or without fur collar. The style is beautiful and the brilliance of the white was just perfect to show off such a dark for me tone skin. A few weeks back I went to FFL and grabbed some items from Duh, I am pretty sure it was FFL otherwise I am completely lost about where I have been going, and doing and argggh so many things lately. The boots are from Duh, and they are fun cowboy boots, if you have never been to Duh and are a shoe fan, and love a bargain, then this store is for you, because these boots were something like 25L or so.

Tucked into the boots are some Petals Place socks, petals place is owned by a RL photographer and artist, who enjoys making art on clothing in Second Life also, as well as using her own vintage fabrics etc. So when I saw these vibrant socks I had to have.

While taking pics and just about to do the body shots, Luck Inc released these new jeans,the Tyra jean. They come in lots of denim washes and colours, with skinny or cuffed skinny prims for this set, and two other variations which are slim and flare. I had to giggle at these jeans, they are probably the highest waisted jeans from Luck Inc so far, in the fact that to do an open zipper look, you actually have to have some zipper available, CK is so much fun to tease.

On typing all this up the Spring Festival for Tableau started and I am so in love with the new hair from Fashionably Dead, it is called Butterfly Girl and I LOVE it, even the demo colour made me squeel. Toast let me know it was just a tint, so I got the earths pack and yayyyy HERE

Another Fundraiser II – Dancing Queen

AnotherFundraiserIIposter

 

I was having such a day the other day, and a notice announcing Comfort dropped down on my screen and I smiled and was all happy again. What also makes me happy is such incredible skins and make ups for only 50L to help raise funds for Japan.

Elikatira has released three new styles this week, and the Comfort style is so much of an everything and anything style, I just adore it. I am wearing it with a dress I picked up a while ago at NCore, usually known for its shoes, more than clothing, this dress is just lovely for a night out dancing. The red in the dress is perfectly suited to the stunning skin by Miamai for Another Fundraiser II. The skins are so imaginative and fun, I hope you all take the time to come over and expand your inventory, not only for a great cause, but imagine how awesome the more lavish ones will be months from now for an event, or photoshoot.

I watched Phillip Rosedale/Linden doing a seminar at Singularity University in 2009 earlier today, it was so interesting listening to what he has to say about LL and Second Life, especially with all the changes since, and how these weren’t just thought up last minute, they are projects that were in the works for some time. I recommend watching it if you have a spare hour.

Another Fundraiser II – Geisha Downtime

Idio1
AnotherFundraiserIIposter

A Geisha has to have some down time right? well with this beautiful skin from Idiosyncrasy the downtime is soft and delicate and such beautiful red lips. This is one of the skins she has created for Another Fundraiser II and will be available until the 3rd of April as exclusives to the fair. The frilly shirt I am wearing is so neat, its a very artsy kind of smock, and I thought with its billowyness that again, perfect for putting on and taking off without messing with ones make up.

Kissed by the Sun

Doing a lot of back and forth this week. Another Fundraiser II is just around the corner, and already I want everything I have seen. I can’t wait until everyone sees what people have done, the ideas have been amazing.

A few weeks ago I mentioned Too One Lounge, an event at the Slow sim, but alas it is over now…but the items I got are so gorgeous I still wanted to share, especially this one as it is so feminine and beautiful. Boho is a look that is mentioned a lot with this kind of outfit, and it has definitely got that swishy bohemian carefree and spontaneous feel about it. The dress’s length is super short for this kind of look, but it is a must for traipsing around the markets and going down to a beachside cafe for lunch.

The hairstyle is equally feminine and beautiful, this is the style of hair that makes you want to pick daisies and walk barefoot in the wet sand, it has that lovely dried in the sun look to the waves that I adore so much. I am also wearing some new jewelry that was a must grab, due to it being on special on the marketplace at the time, not sure if it still is, but check anyway.

Tuli’s Jade skin is the one I am wearing, and if you look close enough to the sides of the nose, you can see just the hint of being sunkissed. The way the tone is done, especially the tan, it truly does look as though I spent my day on the edge of some glorious beach somewhere. For me and my skin, the next step would be freckles, but for now the beautiful glow is enough to make you want to change shoes, maybe add a necklace or two and go out dancing until dawn, because nature had a hand in your look.

No more tshirts and jeans

I am addicted to Veronica Mars, I cannot help it, so far I have watched every episode of season one and two, and am up to the last few on season three, I will be very upset when it is over, but not nearly upset as I was when I finished all six of Dawsons Creek a few weeks ago. Poor Mel IMd me just as I was on the last five minutes of the last episode and I rang him and all I could do was sob and gasp and hyperventilate in his ear as it ended…then I was a mess for about an hour or so longer.

Seriously though, I do not know how people can watch such shows week to week, I mean I know I do with the current ones, but I when I watch something back to back and nearly break a finger trying to get to the next episode, I just can’t understand how people survive lol. My friends can always tell what show I am on too, as I constantly hum or sing the theme, thankfully Veronica Mars is much better theme wise than Dawsons Creek was, and for a few days on and off I was watching Everyone Hates Chris, so kept doing that ‘ Everyone haaaates Chrissss” randomly.

One thing about VM is that it is too casual, at least with Gossip Girl and 90210 – yes I am huge fans of both – there is some heavy duty fashion going on, the best thing about VM to date is the change in her own hair styles, she has lovely hair. So I decided that all those tshirts and jeans shots were getting to me, so I had to glam it up a tad.

This dress isn’t new new, but it is stunning, and named after Blazin the lady organising the Project Fur Japan Campaign. The sculpts on this dress are just amazing, even going so far as to bake shadows on the sculpts below as though cast from above, that is some detailing that makes LeLutka a stand out brand. The adorable bow necklace is from Royal Blue, and I tinted my boots to match as close as I could.

The new Sia skin is one we teased you with during skin fair from League, it has two packs available, A & B in all the usual tones, with so many options. Freckles, cleavage, and hairbases, all mixed and available no matter what way is your fav. Beautiful smokey make ups, as well as rich colours…you will definitely find some firm favourites and so far everyone I have seen it on looks gorgeous.

Don’t forget that Pacific Crisis Fundraiser is still on and going strong, a whopping 4 million lindens raised so far , that is incredible. Another Fundraiser II is about to start as well at the end of the week, if you have ever wanted to dable with tat layers or skins, this is your chance, remember to think outside the box, it doesn’t only have to be make up, it can be patterns on the body, it can be scales, different colour skins, whatever strikes your fancy. Have fun with it.

Project Fur Japan

Project Fur Japan

Think of the animals. It is all that people like Blazin Aubret and Tristan Careless have been doing. SInce the horrifying disasters that have been striking Japan started, possibly thousands of domestic and wild animals have suddenly found themselves out of their normal element. Some have been injured, many are just probably hiding in their own homes terrified, with their owners either injured or worse, or evacuated and unable to get back to collect them. This is so sad, and I know from personal experience pets just don’t take off to fend for themselves when their owners are missing, they pine, they wait and if injured they will suffer.

People can communicate their needs, animals can’t, so the best we can do is listen to our hearts and act on it.

If you are a content creator, please contact Blazin Aubret or Tristan Careless for info on how to be a part of this upcoming event. They need all the help and support they can get. Below is the notecard being circulated, there is also a video to watch so you can understand the dire needs of the animals, I suggest caution on watching that if you are anything like me.

In my opinion this would also be an incredible event for all of those Breedable people to get behind, spread the word, if you breed in SL you are an animal lover, do what you can to make a difference in RL too.

____________________________________________________________________________________________

In this horrible Japan tragedy, thousands upon thousands of deaths, while every human life that has suffered, passed, or even hurt, I myself cannot also stop thinking about the thousands of animals in Japan that have also lost their lives. They have been left in homes while their owners fled for safety, they have been taken also, along the ravaged waves of the tsunami, never to meet up with their owners again, lost, cold, scared, and hungry.

I am asking you all to watch this video, and read this story:

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/blogs/pets/detail?entry_id=85210

Please understand that the human lives means just as much to me as the animals. I, as I said, am a HUGE animal advocate, and I feel that not as much effort is going towards the animals as they are towards the people. To me, they are worth just as much.

I, along with many other wonderful people who are involved are having a large fundraiser for the animals called “Project FUR Japan”

With the gracious donation of a sim by LeLutka, we are ready to get this started but we need YOU to get involved. This is how it will work:

Once we get enough people involved, we will open the sim for you to set up your creations. On the bottom of this notecard is a form I need you to fill out and return to either I, Blazin Aubret, or Tristan Careless.

Once we receive your name, you will recieve a folder with all the necessary information. All will be given more information and a script to put inside your creation to contribute 100% of the proceeds you make. The script is set to send the money to an alternate avatar so all money can be accounted for. The sim will be open for 2-3 weeks to collect donations for the cause. Documents will be sent and blogged with proof of the contributions made and that all monies were sent to the charity. The sim will be open for 2-3 weeks to collect donations for the cause.

I have investigated all charitys and have decided on a group called  Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support (JEARS). This group is comprised of three private No-Kill animal welfare organizations in Japan; HEART-Tokushima, Animal Friends Niigata and Japan Cat Network. No animal rescued by JEARS will be surrendered to Animal Control (where they would be at risk for euthanasia after three days) under any circumstance. They rescue, reunite and rehome lost and abandoned animals

I am asking, all of you, every single one of you, and everyone you know, to help these animals. We cannot be successful without you! We need bloggers too! So if any of you blog or know bloggers please contact us.

Please fill out this application if you are interested and return it to Blazin Aubret or Tristan Careless:

Additional Information for bloggers or interested parties:

Thank you so much from us, and the animals!

Sex Kitten Purrrsss

Pants

 

Pants like these are so fabulous, in a vintagey goodness kind of way.

La Viere released a boatload of rich colours that are a must have staple item for spring and well into summer. They are fun for any type of upper look, and even some oversized sweaters or cardigans would look fabulous, all snuggly and stuff.

I could eat the LeLutka accessories department, no really! it is full of such incredible bags, hats and other necesseties. The love junky bag has always been a fast favourite, but this adorable pouchette style bag in aussie colours is fabu. The other day I was playing around with the new basic option in the 2.6 viewer, and because it completely changed my av by choice of course, I did a quick change using linked folders on my return to regular, and it had the Ife skin inside…I have kept it on since.

So many events still going on, one of which is the March Chic Limited event, that this hair is part of, the SHAG store has such beautiful styles, and I am excited that they have signed up for Hair Fair 2011 again this year, last year their booth was such a hit. This backcombed sex kitten look is all win, so don’t miss out on the special pack at the event.
