Who has our backs ?

In the past months, and most recently, it has come to light about yet another DMCA filing between designers. That's not what this post is about. What we'd like to address here is the "keeping things quiet" aspect of these situations.

We completely understand the need for silence when dealing with said issues. However, one thing that has consequentially occured from doing so is that many, many bloggers are continuing to post on items they are unaware may turn out to be stolen. This is painful in the end for not just the designer - and we totally share your pain in this - but also for the many bloggers who have showcased/reviewed the products, filling their blogs with praise for the items, only to feel let down in the end and ultimately have their own values questioned.

Such widespread covereage on the SL blogosphere also leads to more customers/readers considering the products in question for purchase, and again the bloggers do feel very responsible for that. As many designers know, if a blogger at any time suspects an item's integrity, they will immediately contact the designer to make them aware of the situation. In a lot of cases, this is what leads to DMCA's being filed. Not everyone can have eyes everywhere to see their own content has been stolen.

But who looks after us?

Second Life fashion bloggers are valued and sought after to showcase items for many designers, but that is where the respect seems to end. We hold designers in such high regard. If we were told via IM or notecard that something was amiss with the content of one creator over another, we would be perfectly capable of keeping that to ourselves should you request that. Naturally, further blogging on the items in question would cease to occur. We understand that designers dealing with the trauma of having their work stolen may not have considered alerting the bloggers as a course of action in the past, but now is when it is crucial to stand united in this and feel more like a community than ever before.

Keeping it to yourselves is what is letting many content thieves get away with thier thievery. Without an undisputable display of theft, these "content creators" are able to continue producing, and in doing so they will inevitably use bloggers and fashion feeds as tools to spread the word. Bloggers, like designers, also spend many, many hours behind closed doors compiling blog posts and genuinely working hard on their own written content. We don't always see and hear everything. In the past, too many newer bloggers have been attacked in comments on their own blogs because they weren't aware of theft with a particular store. That in itself is reprehensible. If you know something the blogger doesn't, IM THEM and let them in on it. If you don't want to consider it as helping the blogger, at LEAST think of it as helping the designers that have been stolen from.

We hope that people will help us in the future by letting us know, privately and anonymously if necessary, that there is questionable content making its way around the blogosphere. We have no interest in spreading gossip! But we DO have interest in, as well as obligation to our readers to know about, content theft. Hopefully, in the end, we will not feel like we have to rip our blogs apart and delete older posts (which will consequentially punish other designers who were mentioned and linked to) in order to hide what has been done innocently.

Secret Hair Fair Business :P and Charity Info

Hair Fair is just around the corner starting on the 22nd of August and ending on the 7th of September. I have been running around the grid setting up Charity Kiosks made by Damien Fate already, and they are not only brilliant looking but collect much needed money for Locks of Love, so if you see one drop in some spare change and feel all fluffy inside.

Also to remind you if you are wanting up to date info on Hair Fair there is a Subscrib-o-Matic machine at Hairspray sim just at the landing point HERE. So click on it for info and when the fair is just about to open we will send out the needed LM's to all four sims donated by Rezzable.

I also wanted to let you in on a little secret, this year unlike any other we have requested that ALL Hair Fair Participants put their Hair Fair release DEMO's on Onrez 24 hours prior to the Hair Fair start , this will mean that you will be able to grab them all up with ease from your own home or even from work and be able to prepare yourself for the fair.

This has as I said never been done before, and from my experience and everyones with not just Hair Fair but all big events like this one , the major issues are being prepared , so this way you will know what sim and what stores you want to hit first and having already tried on the Demo's all you will need to do is SHOP SHOP SHOP , doesn't that just sound too yummy.

So be prepared now and set up an account with Onrez ASAP HERE , I cannot wait for this and especially the day before when everyone will be oooing and aaaaing over styles they get a sneak peak of.

Any questions regarding the donation kiosks please IM me in world, if you would like to allow me to put one up in your store and you are not a Hair Creator that would be awesome too , CharitySasy String is the alt that will be used for all of the donation kiosks and Bandana's so send her an invite and a LM and a message saying where you would like it placed, thank you.

Rude Rude Rude

Seriously I was so proud of myself on friday getting two lots of posts ready way early in the day for the next day, only to realise that I posted them in the wrong order. Not that that matters too much but I had shown the owner of Kari this pic and then used a completely different hat pic lol.

Anywho, Canimal has wowed us all with her latest release of the Abaddon dress and the fantabulous Gothdamn shoes. So there they were dieing to be worn when I saw the post of the latest Kari hats, yesterdays Guerilla hat and todays Rude Boy hat. As soon as I saw them I was off and running, the Rude Boy craze was huge here in the 80's as it was in the UK and surrounding countries , not really sure about the rest of the world.

As soon as I saw the Rude Boy I knew it was Kismet - waves and giggles - the Abaddon dress has a thick cord style fabric with a full length steel zipper underneath a fancy row of eyelet style buttons. Everything a Rude Girl back then would have loved in a dress, and this girl loves now.

Skin tight black jeans, tartan mini's or a dress just like this one was the uniform so to speak of choice , so I was loving the concept of mixing the items together for this post. The hat was made for boys hence the name, but is mod and has a wonderful texture change script in it too. As I said yesterday I have all of the Kari hats now and cannot wait for more.

In Rude Girl fashion it had to be all about dark make up, I swear Rude Girls I know got their eyeliners down to stubs very fast they were reapplying constantly - probably had allot to do with the make up back then though lol. I am wearing the fantastic Vivant skin by Fleur in the Bilba 3 make up and its just gorgy for this kind of look. Deep plummy lips and black charcoal like eyes, Yummo.

The collar is from the Lilith set from Dark Eden, another accessory Rude Girls were always wearing, again the fantastic Gangsta add on hair from HCT means under hat hair is a breeze , and I just had to go for the pinkish tone dye look - hair dye and eyeliners was what it was all about .

Then we have the shoes, and aren't they just too pretty. The Gothdamn shoes are available in an assortment of dynamic colours in either the stripe or the dots print, but its all the other little features that just make them so impacting. First off I think the skulls are cute lol , but I was so stoked to find that they are scripted to go invisible, and so are those killer bows. You get the choice of the main colour of the shoe or black as a bow option as well as invisible also.

So one pair of shoes has four ways to wear them, and more if you went mixed up having both shoes different lol. I love the straps across the foot and the lace edging around the rim of the shoes , just divine. Great job by Canimal on making these shoes look so stylish and delish.

My Posestand is by VR Fetish/Fashion and also available on OnRez HERE!, not only does it have hide/show, but also has 3 options for changing poses, lights built in you command on/off in chat, and it rezzes a prim sphere around you that allows you to turn your camera 360 degrees and take pics without moving your stand, the sphere also changes colour on chat command too, its brilliant!.
