Dublin Hunt DON"T MISS OUT !! (hints at the end of post :P

You may have seen the big post that Vivianne Draper did on the Dublin St Patricks Day Hunt, thats running this weekend on the 3 Dublin Sims, believe me there is so much more than the hunt going on.

I was given the items from the hunt so that you will get an idea of what is on offer, and they are Yummy, plus there is a Cash Prize up for grabs too, but read about all that on Viv's site HERE .




I just want to tell you about the goodies, she can tell you about how to get them lol. Firstly I will show you the Big Goodies and then the wee ones, as you get both if a big winner and wee if your a little winner lol (again details on Viv's blog)




This first set is by the talented Kit Maitland of CKS Designs and Phaylen Fairchild of DiVa Designs, I love love love when they collaberate, and if you are thinking why do I know their names together ? its probably because like everyone your a fan of the Diva's Movies.

I got to be in one today thats not a "Diva' Film but Phaylen still shot it so Im stoked , see it here. This is the Patricia set for the Hunt, and the pieces are just wonderful. The fabric used for the cute as all get out hotpants and vest is gorgeous and shimmery, and seriously can we talk about that collar!.


The whole set is super sexy and the pieces you will want to use well passed this weekend, I have on the Hampton wedges and the Elikapeka Hair from the ETD hunt that I believe is also running until midnight tonight so make sure you grab those on your way to dublin.


Now the next three items in the hunt are the Ookami Ningen Parasol and Wings set, as well as the DDMDI (Devil Made Me Do It ) Soda Pop Candy Shoes in St Paddys Lemon and Lime, DDMDI does incredible Prim work on all their fetish boots and shoes and these are no exception, you get the open toed and closed toed in the prizes and they are a fabulous style with incredible detail.


I just adore the Wings and Parasol, Zorena of Ookami Ningen has made them so beautifuly, and you can see the brush strokes she made to creature such wonderful petal like textures. Whats even cuter is the little clover emitter on the parasol, which you can kind of see - and you thought i just left dots on my pic didnt you :P .


I am wearing the Gidget set in green from CKS Designs and NO its not in the hunt but look how cute they look, and I never need an excuse to wear Gidget.
This next set is from a designer/store I hadnt heard of before and I am liking what I am seeing. The store is called Kaimis Normal Wear (lol) and this is the Tonku Dress that actualy also comes with the shoes, a really wonderful print dress with tankini and full piece swimsuit included, and short ( PS destroyed the pic I swear it wasnt me) and long skirt options. I love the cut out on the back and just the really simple yet elegant style to it.
The Hula hoop and yes its scripted lol is another of the cute prizes called the P.S.Y.C.H.O Hula Hoop.
This is for the Men, but I wanted to show how great it looks on girls too, the suit is the Charcoal Yellow Suit again by Kaimi's, and this designer goes all out with the extras.
Look at my BUM, seriously selling menswear for over a year in SL I cant believe I have NEVER seen this before, , mind you I havent sold Mens in over 6 months, they have created a prim backing to the coat, no more bum hugging jacket bottoms with this suit, ITS FANTASTIC.
Look, also you get shoes, yes made of texture but they are still cute for the look to begin with, and socks and tshirt for underneath, and WOOOHOO Boxers that are sooo cool.
This is the Kaimi's Red Lace Dress, and again extra's you will love, not one but three pairs of lace gloves, teh beautiful Gown itself and the lingerie pieces as well, just heavenly.
Again another Male Prize is the Tartan Gentleman Outfit 4 Menzies Tartan Ascot, by the Tartan Shop, this is such a Posh outfit for men I loves it, I so need some Irish Setters now and a Pipe, oooo darnit I own a pipe too *pouts* . The whole look is great and the ascot an collar are prim so you can move them around for your shape.






Definitely fun and sorry for the bad pics, are the wonderful Plants, Urn and Fireplace by Creative Kaoz , realy wonderful textures on these and I know because I have had her plants in my house before.
The hovercraft which seriously has a mind of its own lol and is too much fun even if up 600metres and no where near water, is by Love me Tender and this is of course the St Patricks Day Version.
The Celtic Running Arch Windsor seat in Mist is a prim delight, and is from teh American Shaker Shop - one day someone will tell me what a shaker is.
Now all of those items are in the bigger prize as well as the following, but the following you can get by answering ONE question for the hunt only ONE woohoo.
Ok is experiencing serious De-ja-Vus here, the reason being is that these items I blogged a long time ago and LOVE LOVE LOVE them. They are by Creative Kaoz and OMG the primwork on them.
The belts are just fantastic and the helmet is genius, if your into RP this is a MUST HAVE.
These next three pieces are all again from Kaimi's store, and again you get pieces you dont expect, the boxers extension with the celtic tshirt is fun, the jeans in the next set even have socks under so you dont get that yucky skin look with flare..and the starburst tanks are in both female and make styles.
Ok Now for the Clues.
1) Clues:
Most of the clue signs are placed near where answers to other clues will be. So one clue should "lead" you to yet another.
2) Answers
The clues were taken, for the most part, directly from the land descriptions that can be found in search or from the 'famous places/Discover Ireland" signs all over the Dublin Sims. So look there to see if there's any text you recognize from a clue.
Make sure you check out the Hunt and all the other wonderful attractions of Dublin Sim this weekend, really its so real looking over there I swear you can smell the liffey.

Aleri Darkes is Naughty :P

Hee Hee I am going to get in trouble for that heading I know it, but there is a reason, and she already knows it.

Aleri Darkes of Diversity Hair just released some fab new clothes in her Boutique inside her store. and for about 12 more hours one set will be 75% off.

Indira is a wonderful skirt and top set, I adore the tiered skirts that has been made with a waistband so that you can wear it seperately with other items.

Aleri has put a lot of thought into the layers of this too, as the top is made on the jacket layer for length, but would mean on those cool nights you wouldnt normaly be able to wear a nice cardi or shrug, well she compensated for that by making the top also on the shirt layer and the length on the underpants layer.

Which also means if you like some coverage, but only seem to be able to find low slung jeans or pants thats covered also, when wanting to wear the top seperate.

The other great thing and naughty Aleri hee hee this is why, took her vendor pics without showing you that you not only get one top but two, yes you get not only the contrast top that goes so well with the skirt...but you also get the plain top.

I know in some cases knowing that is important, as it could be the deciding factor on purchasing an item. The tops in this set either with or without the band are gorgeous, the depth of colours and the shading I love, especialy that red one.

The length of the tiered skirt is also very pretty and has a lovely movement to it..these are definitely mix and match pieces you will get lots of wear out of this coming spring. The hair in the pictures is also by Aleri at Diversity Hair, and is called Elina, its a lovely medium style and has an vintagey look to it, very very pretty for day or night.

The skin is Michelle by Damiani in the Emerald Oasis Make-Up, Sophisticated tone..I liked the softness of this overall with this pretty girly girl look. The shoes are by Aphrodite Creations and are all from the Vintish collections , love love love the vintage shape to the toes in these, again very ladylike and charming for days in the sunshine and well into the night.

Make sure you head on over to Diversity Hair asap so you can grab the 75% off on ONE of these sets, also two other hair styles were released last night and 3 packs of each have the same offer and they are so cute too.

Sy Sy Senorita

The other day I got an IM from SySy Chapman of Sy Designs. Now of course being in 40 IMs at once I totaly confused the poor girl when all she did was ask me a simple question - I do tend to do that lol.



Anyway in the end she was lovely enough to send me some items I liked the look of, and I tend to go for older to Newer, especialy when showing a Designer for the first time. It's kind of like my little time line of their store, plus everything Old is New to someone.


The two items today are older styles in her store, and I think they are fab. The first being the Salsa Gown in red that is just heavenly; and as I said earlier its the reason I came into SL in the first place.

I adore the billowy scarf that just flows beautifuly while you walk and of course dance, the idea of standing in the arms of a loved one while a gentle breeze lets it flow behind you is just mmmmyummy.
I especialy like the layered skirt at the front as there is something very sexy about seeing your legs when in something formal like this, especialy a Salsa inspired gown, as its all about the feet, and the extension of the leg.
The whole dress moves incredibly well and for an older style it will stand the test of time, as it is a classic design.

I am wearing Juliet Hair from Gurl 6 a lovely side bun that suits this spanish look very well, especialy with my Essentia Hair Rose tucked behind my ear. The shoes are the fabulous Natasha Shiny Red Stilleto's by Tesla with the divine thin ankle straps, again bringing more attention to your legs.

Now the Skin is Modelesque, a NEW release by Lexi Morgan of Stellar Designs, she created 10 lovely make-ups on this and she named it after her friends, and *blushes* I am so honored that she chose me as one of those ten people, this is Modelesque Sasy and as Lexi knows I love red, the lipstick is just divine and the incredible dark and smokey shadow make it perfect for dancing the night away.
This next set is called Jersey Girl also by Sy Designs, and I love the simplicity of sets like this one, they are so versatile for accessories and work like a canvas to create different looks.
The set comes with the great black scarf and is a a really nice length mini , the neckline is just that right depth to be either very saucy or a touch conservative, depending on your mood.

I was in one of those I need Dark Eden moods today, yes its a mood I have on occasion, don't you ?. Dark Eden has absolutely incredible Primtastical items, that mix and match with other designs so well. These are pieces from the Bloodrage Phobos set, the boots and the belt, you can buy them seperately but at the prices Dark Eden has the sets are always a steal.

I love the deep red of the bloodrage and all those fabulous chunky prims, they look fab with the Jersey Girl set. The hair is actualy also from Dark Eden and is called Etains Second Hair - LMAO - she is a nut. The style is very different and you can buy it in a full pack of all colours for some crazy price under 100L.

I adore this combination together, and there can be so many 'looks' you can achieve with a set like Jersey Girl from SY Designs.

A Pisces Dream

When I came to Second Life it was to Salsa, when I got here all I wanted to do was live in the water.

Its actualy shocking that on two islands I have lived on, I have lived in the sky :o(. I often say if I had lots and lots of money to spare I would buy an island and sink it, but I have actualy been to a store that was underwater and it kind of makes everything blue :oP- funny that.

I knew there were Mermaids in SL, and for the longest time, nearly a year since I came face to fin with my first one, I have held back; knowing that I would get carrried away by it all and want to stay that way for good...and it would be very complicated working as a fish out of water.
During Another Fundraiser though I saw Qeue the owner of Analog Dog and she was a Mermaid, and seemed to be very content swimming about out of water, and I couldn't stop thinking about it for days.

I finally got up the courage to IM her, and asked all the silly questions, she was so helpful and off I ran to get myself the most important thing a Mermaid needs.

A Mermaid AO, ok this was such a bizarre concept to me, as I hadnt even thought that far ahead, I dont know what I thought they did to get around other than swam, but I was so wrong.

Merwings this tiny little shack on a pier has not only single poses for Mermaids and MerMen, but also a full AO already set up for you....too much thinking involved to buy them seperately as I was really new to the whole thing, so AO it was......OMG its too cool.

Not only does it replace your walks with swims, but you have all these neat hovery things instead of stands...BUT my all time favourite part is the fall OMG you so have to go and check out the poses and animations and find the fall, its the coolest thing, if it was copy it would so live in my regular AO as well- ooo I might just have to go back and get it single.

There was a bunch of Mermaid tails in Merwings too, but Qeue sent me to another store that had an abundance of Mermaid creators in one place, up and down I went enthralled by the selections, but nothing really did it for me...I did get one set and was kind of ah well ok its niiice but hmmm.

Then my dreams were answered because another girl I knew that is also a Mermaid IM'd me, and she said that Bare Rose had Mermaid sets OMG HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS!. I Tp'd over and do you think I could find them noooooo, do you think Tori was online Noooooo- lol - So I left a super duper emergency offline for her and when she came on WOOOOSH two incredible Mermaid sets made it to my inventory.

I have been dieing to share these with you, and today was the perfect day because I had been pining over some hair all week I saw in an ad in fash con, and even though I had my suspicions it was from Analog Dog, Jaydie was going to confirm for me; as her friend has the same hair.

Confirmation in and I zoomed over to land up to my ankles in water , Qeue has turned her store into Mermaid Paradise...this might not be news to anyone but me, but I havent been there in a while. I tried on three styles that I thought were it and finally decided on Astrid, which I think even though it wont stop moving, is just divine ...thing is I personally think that Qeue designs her hair with herself and other Mermaids in mind so the movement is needed for all that swimming.

Whatever it does and whoever its for its Gorgeous, the colour is Sepia and I rarely choose blondes when I dont know the textures well, but this was the DEMO and it won me over big time - SEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, DEMOS DO THAT .

I knew it was time as I said, I had the perfect hair, I ripped out the copy poses out of the AO so that I could take pics - remember I suck at location shots lol - and I was ready to show you the fabulous Seiren and Sea Nymph sets by Bare Rose.

Both sets are stunning, the Seiren is my fav, the first time I wore it I didnt remove the Head Piece for hours after I had to change for work , hee hee I can get away with headsets, just not a tail. The sets are both incredibly detailed and soooo much goes into making a Mermaid set.

Not just pretty shapes and colours, but all the prim work and invisiprims and what not, to hide our feet and change out lower body into a believable shape...the Bare Rose set does actualy have its own AO, so when you go and get them, because I know you will want to :P check out the AO in the set first and if you are happy with that then YAY, if you want more then check out Merwings, when You have all your bits and pieces sorted and you need hair for Mermaids with incredible movement and delish styles, then off you swim to Analog Dog :o).

Have fun and dont be like me and wait over a year to fulfill what may seem like a silly thing, because it felt incredible to be a Mermaid that first day, and well I even visited an Aquarium and Mel TP'd me to land in the fish tank THAT ROCKED!

It's Jeanius

Veschi is a store that constantly tips the scale on yummies, you see items released by Alla Ruff that we wouldnt know we loved, until she made them.

There have been so many times I have wanted to head over there and purchase latest releases, and yet never was able to really get as much wear out of them as I would hope to.
The other day though a notice popped down just as I was in Group Shuffle mode - constantly have to do that to be invited to groups for helping set up satellite stores/fairs etc.

I was in between shuffles and Alla sent a notice saying that she had put out a Group Only Gift item, so to join to get it...I ummed and ahhhed because well its kind of hard to do that when I know that often I will have to leave the group again. I joined and got the item from notices archives out of curiosity more so than anything, and sent an IM to Alla saying thank you.

It took a few days to be able to unpack it and get over to the store, I did tell Alla I would visit later that day, but all the theft stuff happened so didn't make it. I think I am glad I waited though, today I had the time to try on the Group Gift and YUM! the Jeanius pants are just too Gorgy.

I love love love high waist pants, I was really glad that I had the time today, because I dressed for me..not for the blog. The Jeanius pants come in long and shorts options, but personally I just love the long to bits, so much so that after I went out and about for a while in this outfit, I TP"d over to the Main Store of Veschi and grabbed them in Grey - surprise surprise lol.


I wanted to go a little dressier for the denim, so I went with the tops of the French Cut dress by Armidi, which has the lovely gathering along the neckline and such rich lovely colours, in the Blue Jenius Pants - and this colour will not be available to buy apparently- I went with the Gold to offset the fabu buttons on the pants, and in the Grey with the silver, because I personally always mix my metals RL and SL lol.


The Wedge Pump shoes are one of the fabulous Clover Hunt prizes by ETD and not only do you get Green but all ten colours which of course includes a lovely soft Gold and Silver. The lovely long hair on the left is the Marigold by Calla, and the Fabulous NEW style by Diversity Hair is called Ember and comes in men's versions also, this style is very different from Aleri's usual hair creations and I'm loving it.


The skin is the NEW Blossom Vivant Skin 3 by Fleur YAY they brought back the PAON lips, mmmyummy. The Blossom skin range is soft delicate colours that are just heavenly, make sure you go DEMO DEMO DEMO.


I really hope you get on over to Veschi and check out these awesome Jeanius pants, and all Alla's other goodies. Alot of her creations are vibrant and lively, and if colour is your thing Alla makes sure that there is a nice variety of those to choose from. There is also a reductions section upstairs you can TP to.

Donate Your Time and Music

An update on the RFL Clothing Fair, One of the team Marissa Goodliffe;
is looking for more of the incredible DJ Talent SL has to offer. If you can donate a few hours over this week long event PLEASE contact her in world, not only will this be more wonderful entertainment for the masses, but a great way to showcase your talents too.


Marissa Goodliffe said...
I am the one trying to coordinate some of the DJ entertainment. We WERE going to run 12 noon until 10pm every day, but Nevar said, Lets open it up! I need SKILLED, seasoned DJ's for these SL night time hours. Mature sims, any genre goes! IM me if you have an hour or two to DONATE, ALL entertainers have donated their time and talents for this, all for a great cause. Thank you!
-Marissa Goodliffe

OOOOO I just also remembered something from a notice, will verify this too though, but I 'THINK' that if you want to be a part of the RFL fundraising effort and not a part of the fair, they have set aside a portion of space for people to do that, so you could contact Nevar Lobo and make sure thats accurate, but if so and you want to make something fabulous and contribute the funds from it to RFL that would rock too.

** Update, this has been confirmed by Nevar :o)
"if anyone wanted to be part of the fair and didnt get in .. there will be an area for rfl vendors .. those will be available on sat from any teams.... or from me .... and they can set up on sunday"

RFL Clothing Fair

The much anticipated Relay for Life, Clothing Fair will be opening it’s doors March 17, and run thru March 23, 2008. Jam packed with live music, treasure hunts… and fashion shows this year’s fair features 84 of SL’s premier designers! Kicking off this years Relay for Life Clothing Fair will be a multi-sim St. Patrick’s Day celebration. The event runs 24/7 until the doors close on the 23rd.

Last year was the first that I am aware of RFL Clothing Fair, it was a huge event spanning 2 Sims and with the Heaven/Hell theme, there is nothing more scary than falling in molten lava, and fall I did lol. Press got a sneak peak and it was great wandering around, having a look at all the stores before everyone else made me fall in the lava more often. Last year was such a sucess that this year it has doubled in size, thankfully no lava this time.

The theme this year is Four Seasons, and no not the restaurant..though that would be cool too mmmmm food fairs *concentrates* Nevar Lobo and his fabulous team have again created something on such a huge scale I dont know how they are still standing, and not dribbling in a corner somewhere.

Leading up to the Fair there has been a constant stream of information for Designers, and I have been really impressed with the prompt responses when needing help or information . There is going to be a huge amount of incredible fashion to be found this year and when the Fair spans 4 huge sims you know you are going to need to prepare yourself and your wallet lol.


The event itself is of course a huge way of raising funds for Relay for Life, and the fair itself is organised by one team the Relay Raiders, you may think that this is just another reason to shop til you drop, but not really the case, as the fair consists of 85 incredible stores that means 85 ways to contribute to Relay for Life.
Every Designer has been given the option of donate ALL proceeds from one item, or a percentage of ALL items. This way you all have the oppurtunity to do your bit to help this cause.
Now I know my pics arent very specific, but for once I actualy intended that, as I am manager of a store that is part of the fair, I am able to be at the location....I dont think at the moment its right for me to start exposing vendors and what not as many havent set up yet and may have suprises in store for you all. I just mainly wanted you to see how big this event is land wise, so you can plan ahead lol . Also the land that has been used for this event has been donated by Rezzable, which means that each sim is surrounded by other incredible sims...that unlike other big fairs when you are trying to push in just have you standing on the border , this one will have you wandering around enjoying yourself.
One other AWESOME thing is that the stores are all on the outsides of the sims, meaning if you cant get into the sim, you can cam in easily from the neighbouring ones APPLAUDS Nevar and his team for that.
There will also be prizes and hunts through out the week long fair, and many people have contributed to make those fun and rewarding, there is also Live Music planned and DJ's with also FOUR incredible Fashion Shows planned.
This is an event you are going to need to make sure you have time put aside for, and make sure you have at least 3 bottles of RL water beside you, we dont want anyone dehydrating.
REALLY IMPORTANT ........ Be fair and De-Prim , no one cares that you have the latest and greatest hair, shoes and primmy clothes on when at an event of this magnitude...they do care that your lagging out the sim, so organise a folder in advance...get your favourite texture outfit together, yes pants with no prim cuffs and your favourite shirt or dress that has no prims is a great start.
Go through your hair folders (if you have to wear it lol ) and find hair that has less prims by going into edit when worn. take off all jewelry and additional accessories (wedding bands and collars are understandable to leave on) and go bare foot lol, seriously the sims are so cute with fallen leaves or newly grown grass its fab to run around in no shoes anyway.
When you have your outfit all sorted, make a new folder and place the parts in it, or use appearance mode to make outfit ( be aware if you click all boxes in that you end up moving your huds and things you need access to to that folder) then you are ready for some serious shopping and everyone will be much happier, its not just seeing people that seem to wear every prim they have thats hard to take its the agro that you keep for the next 20 mins when you cant move, thats really what spoils the events.


Anyway enough of all that part, I am going to post below the Link to the RFL Clothing Fair Official Blog HERE , and also a list of all Designers that will be featured at the Fair.

Salty Candy say it isnt so

The other day as I was island hopping with Jaydie, I took her over to DP Serendipity to grab those fab pants I posted in the past.

While we were there, we decided to explore a bit more and found the PigSight section.

Cruising around the little vendor booths I came across this fabulous 1920's styled Flapper Dress and I was inspired..not just by Jaydie saying it would look cute on me *huggles Jaydie* but also because I knew just the hair for it.

The dress is the Black Flair Dress by Salty Candy and it was a staggering 80L lol. Mind you I have done a Sasy Take on it on the sides of this pic, so be aware the four in the centre are the parts you get in this set.

It is a divine 1920's creation, and I just love that whole era, there are two styled tops to the dress but I was too in love with this lace trimmed one.

A few weeks ago I went over to Bossa Nova and came face to face with the Laylah hair, that comes with the incredible Turban and Gemstone, be aware also lol that the Turban texture has been modded, its a divine floral black and grey when you buy it, but the pattern was too different to show with this dress.

I am so enamoured by this hair/turban combo, as all I need now is a yap yap white dog and I will be in Classic Film Heaven. To keep with the theme I am wearing vintage stockings from
N°9 Nylons , that have an incredible assortment of stockings and garters in an array of fabulous colours. I have on an older pair of tanned seamed stockings in the main pics and then the NEW Neon Black (stay ups) in the Sasy Take pics - giggles because I now have to remember to keep calling it that when I do those.

I was playing with the two different attachments for this incredible dress, and decided that the top part would look great with possibly another style top under it, crossed my fingers and YAY it worked. The top underneath in the Sasy Take is the Braided Bodice top from the dresses by Popfuzz Designs ( I am blogging them soon I promise) lowering the chest piece a smidge it lined up really well.

Then I added the Risque set shorts by Cashmere, but I did tint them black, so now as you can see the look is more of a Cigarette Girl in a Jazz Club kind of dealio lol - I so wanted to be one of those even though I was born 50 years too late, that and a DooWap girl, you know the back up singers of that era lol.

The shoes because again they suit the theme so well are the ETD Heel Strap Platforms and the buckles on the sides in silver just complimented the Silver Medallion set Jewelry from Essentia, with hair that tight and short I needed big yummy earrings.

I hope you take the time to run over to the Salty Candy store, there isnt much there but this dress is a definite need and the price rocks. Also go check out this incredible Hair from Bossa Nova, I was so out of the loop I had no idea Moire did hair, Laylah is a definite Must Have if you love vintage.

xoxo Sasy xoxo

Style Your FAE FAE!

Last year when I had a whopping week and a half breakl, I was as silly as could be. Changing into every costume/themed outfit I had in my inventory 'Just because I can' was my reply to people asking why, oh and I danced EVERYWHERE! you know when you see people TP in and they are still stuck in dancing animations...well that was me on purpose.

When Teagan Blackthorne of Style Your Destiny sent me these two adorable Fae sets, thats what immediately came to mind, the freedom to just 'Be' in SL.

As its also getting to that time of year when we think of "little people' in Green, these sets are somewhat appropriate too. I mean Leprechaun's have to date too right?.

What I love most about these two sets, the first being Cliona and the second being Sheila, is that they are kind of cheeky Fairies. Something about those stripey socks and cheeky panties...just make me think that both Fae's are out for causing a bit of mischief...they may LOOK innocent and sweet, but I dont buy it lol .

Both sets also come with the system skirts, but in the Cliona I removed that and pusheed down my skirt to show a bit of skin between, and really liked the length it turned into. Again she 'looks' innocent.

The Sheila Fairy, well aside from the cute shorter dress on this set, the ladybug hitching a ride is way cute. Teagan is always up for creating fun pieces and I can just see her prancing around in these sets throwing things at Laynie - what things I have no clue, but you can see it too can't you lol.

Because Teagan and Laynie Link share a store now, I opted for the Laynie-Wear
skins of Earth Dancer and Fire Dancer, they are both modded from the Eloh Eliot bases and the make-ups are just lovely on them.

Also lovely to mix in with S.Y.D and LW is Bewitched Hair, especialy the Nymph hair worn in the first picture and Old World Medium length in the Second pic, fabulous styles by Sheltered Heart, the first time I ever actualy went out and danced with both girls was at a Bewitched Hair event.

The Shoes I have on are the Ballet Wedges by ETD that are colourchange and always fun to frolic in . So if you feel like dancing around your Garden or chasing some Handsome Leprechaun around, then consider doing it in one of these cute Fae sets, there are more planned by Teagan soon so look out for those too.

Blatant Theft and a NEW Group

Many by now would have realised I am a HUGE fan of Here Comes Trouble, not just the store itself but also both designers behind it...Babyboo Glitterbuck and Bailey MacKenzie.

Last night it dawned on me that I hadnt heard a peep out of Boo in a while and I IM"d her to be told that she was the latest victim of Content Theft. Anyone that knows HCT hair would spot this a mile away, especialy these three styles shown in the picture, as they were very unique for the time she released them and still hold true now with the texture change pieces that are intermingled with the hair.

Unfortunatly though it went further than just HCT's content, much further as you can see in the pictures.

What I found very interesting, is that all the content is of a particular theme/lifestyle so to speak, being very Urban Neko, which when I was at the meeting later that night (more about that soon) I had to giggle when some of the creators were passed the IP rights posters and didnt know who any of the designers on them were *giggles again* - sorry that is funny.

It made me think though, are thieves getting smarter? on this side of the Fashion Fence we are very very aware of who makes what, and we are all die hard shoppers, so we see pretty fast when someone steals. But what about all the other fences? this whole genre was copied, ok not all but seriously its insane how many stores were.
The thing is too, those themes stay amongst each other, they shop from like minded stores etc, they have their favourites and stick to those, so does that leave them more exposed to theft?.

If Nekos only shop at Neko Sims/Stores and dont really hop all over the grid like 'fashionistas' do, then the potential of seeing another store selling their fav items is less, and have thieves like this one caught on to that fact?.

Regardless of how or why, the facts are that this person has taken dozens of items and replicated them and is selling them in her two locations.

One of the designers wrote a notecard about what took place yesterday so I am going to paste that here.
























So here is the whole story from 5:30 am slt time till late at 10:30 pm slt:

When I had logged on yesterday morning I had received a message and a texture explaining that my mice boots had been spotted at a shop. I quickly searched the shop name from the texture and arrived to find countless amounts of ripped items surrounding the walls.

There wasn't one thing in that store I think, that the persons in question had originally made on their own. I proceeded to IM Colemarie and Akasha to help spread the news and tell them items from many stores had been ripped.

I then IMed owner of Electric Kitty once I spotted his belt, along with Philo of Hybrid. After that I noticed the owner of the venders was standing right in the shop, so I IMed her to tell her that I would be filing a DMCA report about this, and I got no response.

Once Akasha showed up a few others started to be tped in and a few others and so on. I began to compile info and pictures, posting the original pictures on Flickr of my boots and belt that had been stolen.
From there talk about the store and identifying the items went on with people IMing the owners of the other ripped items that were present in the store. After about an hour and a half I would say I began to type and file my DMCAs and soon then after logged.

When I returned later in the day about 3:00 pm slt, I had messages from people so I soon joined others that had been standing at the ripped store katsuo Designs.
I was greeted with owners from HCT, Electric Kitty, Curious Kitty, Catnip, and many more. There was also two mentors of sl there trying to give stern advice on how the now in swing protest should go.

After a while maybe 45 minutes into this, someone had contacted one of the owners, Shiranda Milev, and was trying to negotiate a deal so that the venders could be removed without harm and hassle.
Everyone except Akasha, Aemshin, and I were asked to leave the store so we could delegate with the owner and now her "bot" and a few friends on why they should take down their venders.
After about 30 minutes of trying to prove that the items in question were ripped and should be removed, we had decided to go ahead and stop talking with them for the reasons of: they claimed that since the items had, had changes done to them, it stated that they were original and that they were not going to be taking them down.

Akasha and Aemshin left the store while I stayed and decided that a rally needed to be done in order for this to be stopped and done quickly.
I wrote a notecard down with the LM included of the store and asked that anyone and everyone please join me in a rally at 7pm slt to stop this act of theft. I got quick responses and many people called and notified many groups in an effort to take down the store.
Within the hour of me passing notecards and IMs, People had begun to start showing up and supporting the cause. I quickly stated that no greifing was nesessary and that the best way would be to mass report the store.

About 15 minutes after I think 50 people had arrived, the sim crashed. We all compiled back not in the same numbers but at least 25 + people and began to report again. This is when the "bot from earlier"(bots name: Group2U Auro) came into the store along with a Tazzy Runo and began to threaten and yell at everyone there.
After about 5 minutes in Tazzy yelled that she removed the venders, which only pertained to some of the items ripped, and that we all had 10 seconds to leave, as to which we didn't seeing as this was a peaceful protest and we were doing no harm in being there. 20 minutes I'm guessing later through all my IMs I had going, I hear someone say that she had started to eject people and soon after I was ejected to the near by parcel.

Soon after we realized that the land had been set to the store group so we all joined in her group and preceded to organize our selfs back in the store again, taking snapshots and continuing with the reports. By this time people had entered the group chat of the store and were trying to warn the people that the items this store was selling was ripped and stolen.

Conversations continued while I was in IMs with the owner of HCT, Babyboo. She had offered her sim to us for a meeting spot to discuss this issue at hand. I soon informed the party that at this time had actually been banned and were on the near by parcel again that a meeting would be a great idea and so we all comprised to the sim at that point.

Cyia Kanami
Owner of Blood Lust Designs

Now from the Meeting a Group was formed called Designers and Creators Coalition, if you wish to be added to the Group please contact Cyia Kanami, Akasha Wachmann, Destany Laval or Nigma Sterling. Also a Forum to keep up to date is HERE

There have been some incredible ideas proposed to help with this matter, not just regarding this one incident of theft but ways to band together to support and help in the future and potentialy make it very hard to do again.

We know that there are other Groups out there already formed and would love to hear from the officers of those Groups about combining some meetings and ideas, if you know of any Groups or are in any please leave a comment of contact one of the four people mentioned as they are all officers of the Group.

If any of the ideas I heard last night come into play, this is going to drasticaly change many things we are used to for the better, I hope that many of you either join this group or pass on the info to others with similar interests.

Also Boo had this info of something that looks very interesting happening this Sunday 16th March, you apparently have to register to attend though. www.life20.net

EBEN MOGLEN JOINS IPPI PANEL AT LIFE 2.0 On Sunday, March 16, at 4 PM PST, Life 2.0's IPPI (Intellectual Property, Privacy and Identity) panel will join for a rousing discussion of Opensource, IP and Privacy in Virtual Worlds with guest Eben Moglen, Director, Chair and Chief Counsel of the Software Freedom Law Center.

MmmmPop

Recently Popfuzz released an item that was a special request, and then read my mind when it came to releasing the same item in a slew of incredible colours.



The Sequined dresses come in more colours than shown here, and the texture is spot on.

The length of this style is perfect for fabulous nightwear, and the cute little flexi skirt shimmies just right - mind you I am begging Pop to do it in a Micro version too :P, as all good dresses the tops look fab with pants or other skirts and as usual Popfuzz has created these yummies on all layers to give you maximum options.



I have actualy been really bad when its come to show you this dress, as I have had it for awhile now, but see it seems I was meant to wait, because Tesla only just released the incredible Sherry shoes that are just PERFECT to go with this dress.
They are different than anything Tesla has done before, and she told me she spent hours working on the strapping to curve just right across the foot. Not only are the style of the shoes fabulastic but the textures are all named after Gem Stones and the combo of the shoes and dress together are superb.

The texture that Tesla created for these has a divine shimmer to them, which will draw attention down your lovely legs to your sexily clad feed, and then back up again to this HOT dress - and thats the point, right ?.

All the skins worn are from Popfuzz Designs, and we all know how much enhancement these skins do to the cleavage area. With this style of dress , the skins and those shoes you are going to Sizzle the next time you go out clubbing.

I did start out with red hair black dress, but then by the time I got to blue dress and blue hair I was having too much fun, so it became my theme. All of the YUMMY YUMMY Styles are by Here Comes Trouble and as you can see this is just a taste of the incredible assortment of styles, the store is divided into sections so you should have no troubles finding what kind of look you want.

I am so glad I waited to show this dress, as I said the shoes are just perfect. So pop on over to Popfuzz Designs and drool over this dress - once its yours :P - make sure you grab DEMOS of the skins, and then hightail it to Tesla by way of HCT .

Bare Rose Cast Aways

Bare Rose's June Dion never ceases to amaze me, her creativity is astounding.

She constantly changes direction with her themes keeping her store fresh and exciting every week. The latest and definitely a set that all ladies should love, is The Song of an Island.

We are blessed in Second Life to have the oppurtunity to all live by the water, and if not live then definitely play. I dont usualy do locations shots, and Tori and Jaydie today experienced why first hand ' I'M SORRRRRRRRRRY' .

The first two pictures where taken at Mel Noir Cinema and this is the wheel of Mels boat, and his beach bar lol.

The incredible set like all of Bare Rose items, comes with an abundance of pieces, as well as a variety of options; in this case in the colours of the adorable halter tops. There are four tops, Orange, Pink, Blue and Green. You also get the cute cutoff denim shorts, but its the other pieces that blew my mind.
For one look at those wicked cool swimming goggles on my head, I mean they are too many degrees of fabulous. Then you have the awesome wrapped around shirt worn on the hips, because as you know it gets way too hot on the islands to wear long shirts, but cool at night so you need something on hand *giggles*.

I love love love the fact that while island hopping, you can pull out your snakeskin banjo and belt out some tunes for the locals to pay your way, and if seashell collecting is your thing then the jewelry you can make is yummy - ok ok I know I am being silly but Dayum how cool is this set.

Now Miss Tori cheated a little and was scampering around barefoot, but I totaly couldnt and neither could Jaydie my Islander in Crime today, when we saw the INCREDIBLE sandals that come with. These fit incredibly well for the style thats often not the case, and I realised that June did the awesome trick that Feri did on his pants a few posts back, making the prims only cover part of the leg and the rest is texture, so you get a smooth look thats just FABULOUS!.

If you are in the mood for a Sea-Change, then this set will inspire you to slow down and smell the flowers, and yes June even provided some of those in the ones that adorn the incredible Banjo strap. I not only loved dressing up with my friends but Jaydie and I continued island hopping for another hour before I headed back to work, it was so calming and just downright blissful to dress this way for part of the day.

Im also wearing Mika hair by Kin, and Skin is Tan Skin Gloss Holiday by Minnu Model Skins....Jaydie is wearing Luth Hair by ETD and Pandora Skin tone 4 by Adam n Eve.

Go and take a gander at all the NEWNESS at Bare Rose and have a break for the day, you will love it.

NEW GROUP for Fashion Show fans and people involved

Valerie McDunnough, Alaska Metropolitan and Eria Ziemia have joined ranks in bringing a NEW Group to the Grid, its idea is that all people in Modeling Agencies and Events people join the group and all those that love going to shows around the grid join up, and Managers and Owners of Agencies ask to be added as the representative for each agency, so they can send notices. Only the ones invited to send notices will be able to post info on shows - so do the right thing in that regard please.

Group to Join is called .... Fashion Show Fan's Unlimited

INFO from the Group:

***Group Entry (Idea)
This is an open enrollment group for those wanting to keep informed about the best fashion shows in Second Life, produced by the many professional Agencies across the grid. Never again miss a Fashion Show because you didn't read certain publications in time or follow all the fashion blogs.
Owners of Fashion Agencies in SL that hold shows, can contact the group founder or one of the Co-Operators about rights to post notices about your shows and more specific information.
This group is only for announcements concerning upcoming fashion shows, any other kind of message will be regarded as spam and may result in ejection.

Mission Statement -
This would strictly be for announcing upcoming fashion shows. I think an open group with limited 'powers' would be great for getting the word out to people that enjoy fashion shows but seldom come in contact with the ever-growing magazine market or blogs. I myself do not have time to keep up with all the blogs and try to keep up with the more recent magazines. This group should also appeal to bloggers/magazines providing up to date info on coming shows.
This is an open group for entry level, whom we shall call the 'fans', be they normal attendee's, reporters or whatever catagory they might fit in. Entry level would only be able to recieve notices. The proposal aspect and IM channel would not be used at all. Every qualified agency can have 2 members promoted to a position where they can post notices about their particular agencies upcoming shows. One notice can be posted in advance then one notice right before the event was to start.

Respectfully,
Valerie McDunnough
& Eria Ziemia


***

This doesnt just seem like an information group to me, but would also be an incredible Networking tool for the industry as a whole, so if you have group room and this is your cup of cocoa JOIN.

Super Persona-lity

I crossed my fingers and YAY it happened, logged into SL and found that Myllie Writer of Persona is about to release the Helena Sashes in not just the colours the incredible set comes in, BUT many many many more.


As you can see I didn't even change clothes, and can you blame me. I have now got enough looks to play with for weeks. These sashes are made on the Jacket layer and will turn so many shirts into absolute beauties. I am wearing the Helena Shirt in Black underneath with the NEW about to be released Sashes, the First Impressions Monochrome Black Pants and the Charley Hair by ETD.


Also from ETD I have on the stunning NEW Sandals called Hampton Wedge which I will show more of later.

Now for why I wanted these Helena Sashes so badly, I had a look in my head when I bought Helena, and even though it wasnt possible the way the set was comprised I spoke to Myllie about it and she took it and created my dream LOVES LOVES LOVES.


As I already said I LOVE the Helena dress and the way it has the shirt with collar for a really stunning look, but I loved the idea of having the same sashed skirt and being able to make some incredible Gown looks from the pieces, now not only can I do that with Helena Burgundy but so many other awesome pieces not only I have but I know you all have too hiding away.
I rummaged in my inventory - loves search- typed corsets in and of course one of my all time favourites came up that alas is no longer available as it was a Christmas Gift from Old Dazzle which I tinted black for this occasion, but there is no shortage of beautiful boostier/corsets in SL.
So with skirt and glitch pants the New Sashes and the Corset top I have an incredibly YUMMY Gown for dancing with my Love and will be able to mix and match the Sashes with sooo many different looks.
Hair is the Holly also by ETD and the stunning Jewelry is by Sue Stonebender of Appetite and Eve, the Ruby Estate sets just Divine I love the pearls draped down the back and again of course having a strapless gown is the best way to show this off. The lovely Burgundy enhanced Skin is by Minnu Model Skins and is the TanSkin Gloss Tropical one of my favourites for this make-up.
Don't delay go and stand vigil at Persona for these incredible Sashes to be released.

Persona-lity

First off as it was Sunday and you may not have seen it, please take a moment to do the POLL on how you use Search to find Stores in SL.


I had been paying close attention to releases at Persona lately, and one dress totaly captivated me, I was glad I ended up too busy to run over as Myllie Writer ended up releasing it in one of my favourite colours since the major release so off I ran.

When I got there though I was totaly sidetracked by all the wonderful items she has in her store and the one thing that just leapt off the wall was the Hippie Chic Tunic. I grabbed the Blue with glee and when I was taking the pictures I wasnt satisfied, I pined for more. So again I zoomed back and grabbed it in two more colours lol.

In RL I used to Manage a store that dealt primarily in imported Indian clothing and accessories for body and home, in the whole time I worked there I dont think I ever ever took home a full paycheck. When you live in a country as hot as mine can get you relish cheesecloth and various forms of cotton clothing. Indian styles too especially then were very 'In' and I dont think they ever really go out but it was definitely no longer Hippie wear here.

The tunic comes on all shirt layers and the system skirt is done so incredible well, with two sash options; One at the hips and one around the waist. The texture work on this is divine and so realistic you can just feel that scratchy at first cotton that gets softer and softer as you wear it to death.

The colours are fab and the price is awesome, I would love love love to see Myllie do this style in darker colours for nightwear. As you can see its adorable as a mini dress and sensational over any pants you favour.

Left pic: I am wearing the Kara hair by Aden Breyer and all three styles in this picture are from there, but OLDER styles and luckily Aden still has those at the locations Im slurling (hee hee is that a word).
The boots oh lordy those boots, I love them to death but they are tinted right now lol and yes badly I agree but you get the point of the look I was going for. The boots are by SF Designs and are the Yeti Fox boots, they are more of a Black/Yellow combo and just too much fun.

All the skins are Fleur and from left to right you have Paon 1, Chaton 1 and Aurora 3. All divine make-ups in the Bronzed tone.

Middle Pic: I am wearing the Tiffany hair by Aden Breyer, and this time went with capri pants by G.L.A.M which are from the Candy Apple Jeans pack that is probably not in store anymore as a lot was discontinued, but any of Chloris's denim would work well. The shoes in this pic are the cute little Green Ballet Flats and they are also from Persona in a pack of lots of colours and ONLY 1L wooohooo didn't see them on my firts trip but saw them when I returned for more Hippieness lol.

Right Pic: Hair again Aden Breyer is Kenzie 2 and I am so glad I bought this the other day as it just went perfectly with the Hippie Chic set, the way the hair is wrapped around from the middle part and gathered into a long pony is so elegant I adore it. The boots are the Fringe boots by ::69:: or Succubus whichever you want to call it, they are perfect fringe boots and work so harmoniously with this set I was completely smitten and of course thats when I needed mooooore.

Now for the other love from Persona, this is Helena. The first three pics left to right are how you get the set, the last two are how I put it together for the rest of the day. As soon as I saw this set I thought of Spain, and the fact that it came out in such a dinamic Burgundy just brought that image back more so.

The incredible deep red sash is heaven - look out for more on those *crosses fingers*. The stunning option of both floor length skirt and kneelength was inspirational, I love the mature statement of this set as it really is both Stylish and a Classic Must Have.
The prim work on not just the skirts but the cuffs and collar are delightful, Myllie is definitely talented when it comes to putting together such pieces- there is nothing more rewarding than when something floats so well and then is just seamless in its finish.

The shirts are now sold seperately in a range of colours as she was innundated with requests and you can see why, it is yummy. I couldnt help myself though I just had to show it with dress pants, and I tried on as many pairs as I could and only one store had the right height waist and front detailing -definitely would be more but I am refering to my inventory :P, but in a different shading so off I ran to get them in the right black needed.

They are the Monochrome Black pants from First Impressions by Pukk Abel, sold in a set of five colours with lowrise and high waist options for only 250L a steal, and the monochrome is only one of the packs available in these fabulous business styled seperates. The stunning versatility of the Helena is amazing.

The skin I am wearing is the lovely Michelle Skin by Damiani in Emerald Ruby Fair, I used sliders to remove the lipgloss to give the lipstick more of a matt finish, the tones available and the beautiful make-ups in this collection of skins are delish make sure you DEMO DEMO DEMO.

Hair left to rigth is Innocents by Here Comes Trouble (an older style, and still very glamorous) , KRC02 by booN which we know I just adore and really stands out in this fabulous daytime look of Helena.

The incredible New Charley hair by ETD made me run back and re-take the pics I already had for the pants look lol, couldnt resist it was just perfect, the hat is click to change colours and so many to choose from.

The shoes are the yummy Verve heels by Maitreya that come in an incredible assortment of colours and have both black or tan sole options. The stockings you can see barely are seamed and part of the Helena set.

Also I need to point out that Persona has some incredible Freebies in the store, not only the ballet flats for 1L but there are two packs of stands and flying animations for free and the stands are animated so you have wonderful movement from stand to stand PERFECT for creating a new AO or your first.

Also Myllie Writer and Annah Whitfield own together ANIMAH a poses and animations store at another location which you definitely need to check out also, I am using one or two poses/stands in these pics. I hope you loved Hippie Chic and Helena as much as I do and get on over there asap and check out all the other wonderful pieces Myllie has to offer.
