bf early admissionThe Summertime Breedables Fair opens July 2nd, but for some it will open on July 1st with an Early Admission Pass, which can be purchased inworld for a 1000L donation at The American Cancer Society Isle. Passes will grant entry into the fairgrounds at 8am SLT on July 1st instead of during the official opening at noon on July 2nd.  If you are interested in being one of the LIMITED who have early access to the sims, please tp to the vendor located here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/American%20Cancer%20Society/123/100/21.

So if you have always wanted to get into one of our Breedables events before it opened, stroll the displays while the sims are uncrowded and lag-free, this is your chance. There will be plenty of room to stretch and enjoy the space. Early shoppers will also have early opportunity to purchase this year’s NEW Limited Edition Breedables for Relay, BEFORE many others are able to!  What…

Blogger, Blogga! Bloggrrr

BLOCONIC

Great Article that just had to be shared. I just wish I had seen it two months ago when it was originally written.

Personally, I haven’t blogged in forever. In part, because my RL has become very busy and thankfully very fulfilling. In part, because I had become so discouraged with SL life in general – drama between creators, increases in theft of creative content, LL rules which hindered creators and residents in general, and finally everywhere I turned someone was calling them self a blogger and so many were just completely disappointing quality or not providing any details or information about products that I could use to support talented creators.

Being a blogger was amazingly time consuming when doing it right. Sometimes posts took me as much as a couple of weeks to do the way I wanted and include all the details. I have overwhelming respect for bloggers who not only blog thoroughly but blog regularly. Thanks to all of you who fit this category. And finally thanks to Sasy, both for writing this blog and saying what needed to be said for a long time and for being one of my idols / role models / friends / inspiration.

Sasy, you are BLOCONIC – that is an iconic blogger. You set the standard for any new blogger to aspire to be. I don’t know what I would do, if you ever decide to retire. Hopefully, I never have to find out. Thanks for inspiring me. Maybe I will return to blogging; maybe I won’t. In any case, when or if I do, I will do my best to remember all your wise words of wisdom when sharing my pieces with my readers.

EDIT: This rant is specifically focused on Fashion Blogging

In the 8 years I have been an Second Life Resident, only a few months of that time was I not blogging. I didn’t start out Fashion Blogging right away, I actually didn’t know that existed as a thing until I was already in world 4 months, but I was blogging pretty regularly on my own blog. Then I discovered ‘Appearance Mode” I have told this story a few times, and how I had so much inventory from shopping everyday and working, that I started blogging daily.

If you think I am wordy now, there are older residents that can attest that how I blog now is barely a blurb by comparison. I loved it, was incredibly passionate about it, and looked at it as a way to contribute to this amazing community.

This post is a rant, a big one…

The 5th Annual Home & Garden Expo

HOME EXPO 2012 SIGN TEXTURE

HOME EXPO 2012

The 5th Annual Home & Garden Expo benefiting Relay For Life of Second Life, part of a fundraising campaign for the American Cancer Society, has less than 12 hours left. It close at tonight 10pm SLT, May 28th and covers 14 Sims with all kinds of amazing home and garden & breedables wonderfulness. That wonderfulness will include everything from prefabs and furniture to flowers and swimming pools not to mention living, breathing, breeding creatures from a mix of well-known and some not so well-known creators. There is actually a really impressive list of 1s and second level event sponsors this year, and I would strongly encourage you to make sure you visit before the opportunity is up. You can find a list those sponsors here: http://slhomeandgardenexpo.wordpress.com/expo-sponsors/.

One of this years biggest sponsors has become near and dear to my heart as it is one of my most recent SL addictions, one which I never thought I would succumb, Breedables! Yes, it is true, I am just starting to raise KittyCatS. Breedables. You have probably noticed several of my cats in recent pictures and those sprinkled through this article, and they aren’t the only breedables there this year. There is so much to see I will barely even be able to touch on any of this, but here goes. So don’t waste time reading all the details of the article. Glance over the pictures and then run for the Expo before it is too late. Check out the official website, http://slhomeandgardenexpo.wordpress.com, for all the details of maps and TP points.

All the Exhibitors is selling two original exclusive-to-the-Home-Expo items, the sales of which are earmarked for Relay For Life.  These items are new to the grid, making their first appearance in the SL market at the Expo.  The price of these items are set by the designers and every penny will go to RFL.  After the Expo ends, creators are free to continue selling the items in their main stores, if they so choose. Some of the creators are also participating in the event Hunt. The items will be hidden around the 13 sims at each participating exhibitors display. This is NOT a free hunt – Hunters pay a fee for each hidden object that is donated to RFL.  For more info, those interested in hunting can visit the Expo Hunt  info page. There is also the RAFFLE FOR RELAY! you can still get in on. Lots of awesome prizes, including some valued at more than 10k each!  Daily & Grand Finale Drawings. No need to be present to win Expo Fair Entertainment (19,97,23).

If you are looking for the Breedables Sims they are tucked in between sims 13 and 9 in the middle of the square of sims. You can find the relay for life donation KittyCatS there at two locations. The first is http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife//216/91/23 and the second location is http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/RFL%20Breedables%20Fair/141/88/23. The four shown below are my four little babes. They are SteamPunk Nickel (♂), SteamPunk Nicki(♀), SteamPunk Goldie(♀), and SteamPunk Golden(♂). Each one is 1K L and the entire amount goes to RFL. If you have been thinking about getting into KittyCats, this is a great place to start.

Keep Calm ….


Lots to see here, Folks! Just Keep Shopping.keep calm and keep shopping

Don’t miss this opportunity to say “THANK YOU!” all you fabulous creators that make Second Life the beautiful life it is! The Keep Calm and Keep Shopping event is a two week shopping event, from May 14th until May 28th, 2012. So you still have a few days to check it out.

KC&KS features a wide range of stores including furniture, apparel, animations, houses, and more. All participating stores will have one (or more) brand new, exclusive, never to be sold again item(s) placed in their stores. It’s NOT a discount event, items will be full price. It’s also NOT a charity event, all the money will go straight to the designers. This event is aimed purely at supporting Second Life® designers and the money they earn goes towards creating new and amazing items for all of us Second Life consumers. This money goes to things like upload costs, paying land rent/ tier, software and resource costs, and for some even helps cover their real life bills.

There are some rules the creators have to abide by:

* Items must be excellent quality.
* May have up to 5 items.
* All items must be brand new (not recolours of existing items) and must not be sold after the event.
* Items must be full price, it’s not a discount event!

Here are a few of the adorable items which you can pick up while supporting some of those creators:

Above you can see one of the many things that has distracted me from blogging much lately. I have been hanging out with Fallacy DeCuir, while she has been getting ready for the opening of her new sim. She has relocated her store this week to a sim all it’s own with a complete redesign and lots of gorgeous newness. The sim is really beautifully designed and her store has a great natural easy to follow feel.

I encourage you to drop in today for the party any time from 2-4pm SLT. She has 2 guest designers and a DJ who will be just some of the folks hanging out and celebrating the new sim in this Cinco de Mayo themed party. All the details are in the above post so just click that link to see all the details

While you are there you should take some time to explore the sim. There are some really great hidden nooks to get some great pictures. If you follow me on flickr you will probably have seen a few of the great scenes. One of my favorites is the mermaid cove, and this is one of my favorite pics from the cove. You can see the rest of the set by clicking on the picture. Warning, all the shots are rough shots with no editing not even cropping. The only thing used is a variety of windlight settings.
Mermaid Cove

Style card

I am not doing a traditional style card here since I am wearing so little. All the SLURLs for stores are in my SLURL page linked at the top of this blog. The mermaid outfit is one of the 10 that Glitterati had available at the pose fair (*Guilty admission, yes, I did by all 10 colors because every single one was gorgeous. This one is the blue.) The pose, however, is actually from oOo Studio and is available in the rocks at the cove along with the other 9 in Ola’s Mermaid set. The hair is one of the newer mesh hairs from Exile, called the best of Best of You. If you would like a better veiw of the hair you can see it here : http://www.flickr.com/photos/aislingmacmoragh/7083093903/. It is a great look and extremely versatile and the rigging is done very well so you can count on it moving naturally with your body when you wear it, which was one of the many reasons I chose it for these contortionist type poses.
