Silence?

Standard

As you all probably know by now that The World Goth Fair already started and today i talk about why this is one of my favourite events in SL. It happens every year and  is officially sanctioned by the folks at  World Goth Day  raising funds for the  Sophie Lancaster Foundation. A lot of people don´t know much about Sophie, i´ll confess i didn´t until last year, but those living in the UK might remember Shopie´s story.

Wearing:
Shape: mine
Skin: Jalwa- Jezebel (World Goth Fair)
Eyes: Beautiful Freak – Shopie (World Goth Fair)
Hair: Exile – Hearts Don’t Breakeven
Moth: Bliensen + MaiTai – Goth Moth – Hair Accessory (World Goth Fair)

On August 24th 2007 Shopie and her partner Rob where brutally attacked in  Stubbeylee Park, Bacup, Lancashire, Shopie didn´t survive this brutal attack. And you may ask why where they attacked? Because they where goths.

Because they dressed differently, they looked different, no i´ll take that back they where not attacked by that, they where not attacked by something they did, they were attacked due to hate, pure and simple, they were attacked because and by hate. Something Shopie´s mum is trying to fight, and she´s been doing it so bravely by leaving a huge legacy in Shopie´s name, thru The Sophie Lancaster Foundation.

And this is why i picked this blog title, one of the Foundation´s major goals has been to educate people on hate and intolerance to all subcultures, but also work with authorities so that these sort of crimes are penalized as what they are: Hate Crimes. That is done thru constant work and talking, avoiding the silence people are so often pushed in too, by those who commit these sort of crimes.

It´s by talking about these issues that we show victims they are not alone and that we as a society don´t aprove of this sort of behaviour, and will do whatever is possible to call it out when we see it and say this is hateful and not ok, be it in whatever medium it shows it´s ugly face.

So it´s time we talk about people like Sophie, to whom hate had the ultimate consequence, it´s time to break the silence.

You can visit The World Goth Fair until the 31st of May and can window shop for all the charity vendors here on my World Goth Fair Pinboard. There is a lot i could say more, but sadly words fail me so many times, et´s just remember Sophie and all others like her who somehow where victims of hate, and let them be remembered as such a huge influence i a pat to change.

Mr. Luck

Standard

I had no idea what to call this blog post my good friend Nicole over at smileyorc sugested, Lady Luck, but since i´m for the first time blogging mens stuff, and put together an avatar to photograph with, to do another Vintage Fair preview, this time with a more sophisticated look, in one of my favourite outfits so far, this gorgeous Jackie ensemble by Purple Moon, more dashing even is the GizzA tuxedo.

I was so relieved it came with shoes and everything, since this is my first time wearing a male avatar, courtesy of Heartsick with a few modifications to adjust to my usual smaller size.

Now why did i make a male avatar, you may ask, well there are plenty of awesome male bloggers out there, i certainly am not trying to fill their shoes, but you all know i do love experimenting, with new things, and besides i sometimes do need a man to hold me in pictures.

See you all later and remember Vintage Fair opens tomorrow, and you can find a link to all the shops lm´s at the bottom of every Vintage Fair post.

Death on the Nile

Standard

Is the title of the first Agatha Christie book i ever read, and the inspiration for this post with a touch of modern and 30´s 40´s. Modern but a classic are the capris and top from Bilo available at the round of FaMESHed that started today, everything else is a preview from Vintage Fair that opens next saturday the 4th.

The usually gorgeous Bliensen + MaiTai jewelry just seemed to fit the clothes, and was pleasantly surprised to see this year they where also bringing some shoes to the Fair and these are certainly gorgeous, and i believe will become regulars around here, since i love their bright strong colours and classic look.

Now the jewelry, i love how simple but yet detailed the earings are, a perfect match for the adorable lizard brooch, that sleep on my chest, also incredible versatile is the FANATIK bracelet i´m wearing and will show later in better detail.

To finish of the outfit i added a cute little period bag also from the fair by The Millinery Shoppe, that was certainly a perfect fit for this look, i needed something on my hand to used the STaTUS  travel pose set that is perfect for bigger bags also.

Last but not least a big hat to wear under a scorching sun, this one of the recent release by Baiastice, just perfect to keep your skin sheltered while i sit around in a lovely Egyptian marketplace, either planning a murder, or waiting to be a victim, who knows, and like monsieur Hercule Poirot has said:

Understand this, I mean to arrive at the truth. The truth, however ugly in itself, is always curious and beautiful to seekers after it.

Hair Fair 2012 – Rosy Mood

Standard

More hair like promised and this time Rosy Mood, for a different look, more casual and definitely swinging, when i saw this new dress release by Geometry i knew the Rosy Mood hair would be perfect for it, nothing goes better with lace then  a short sassy hair.

I also wanted a different setting for these pics, because i tought the whole assemble and look seemed to tell a story, as usual when i wanna take pictures but don´t have a particular spot for it i browse thru LL´s Destination Guide, and that is where i found 1920’s Chicago, that seems to come complete with dangerous scared faced gangsters, lurking at corners, but certainly safe for a stylish girl like me, who can stand her own ground.

The setting seemed perfect for lace and long necklaces this one by Maxi Gossamer and available at this months Edition of COLLABOR88, and for glamorous women stepping out of old vintage cars, that fitted so well with short hairs, and some of my more flashy earing by Bliensen + MaiTai, while my favourite mules seems to add the final touch.

A small note be careful out there tho since the nite is dark and full of terrors, stick to the streets with lights, and watch out for them gangsters.

Bench me

Standard

More events and a mix of old and new, some old, like these lovely Bliensen + MaiTai Art deco looking earings i´ve had for ages in my inventory waiting to be blogged or this Bilo top, or this Maxi Gossamer necklace from a previous edition from FaMESHed.

Also from FaMESHed, but from their latest edition tho are the Leverocci blazer and the Alice Project hair, another event for today´s post is the bench from Y’s HOUSE, part of this week´s Fifty Linden Friday, as you know FLF is one of my favourite events, it´s not just the price, or the stores involved, it´s mostly the high quality you will usually find, the variety of items, nd the fact you have something to wait for every friday when you get home to do, very few events are awaited with such anticipation, at least for me.

Now the bench, i had never heard of Y’s HOUSE, i he no idea why, i find the mesh work amazing, the colours so very well picked, the texturing flawlessly done, with incredible detailed, but i was surprised there wasn´t a way to adjust the poses, the animations are pretty much spot on for the object and even if they are supposedly 3 for women and 3 for men i found them to be all pretty well done and mostly unisex, which for is always a plus.

But i had the same issue when blogging a gorgeous chair from The Men’s Department last month (btw The Men’s Department is also open again and seems this month is filled with some awesome goodies, i´ll hopefully will check out later in the week), no form of adjusting my avatar size on the object, these days i think most of us are spoiled with simple easy to use menu driven furniture, as a customer i beg and ask all furniture creators, please invest in one of these, we thank you for that, we come in all sizes and shapes, the more people your item fits, the more will buy it.

That´s all for now, have all a great sunday and happy shopping.

Texture like sun

Standard

I have to admit today´s post is a bit of a rushed one, since i was busy last nite with inventory issues, and several sorting, but i managed two pictures with something i grabbed from two events, first the cute and super cheap jewelry from Bliensen + MaiTai  at The Black Market.

I also visited the Midnight Dream Summer 2012 event, where i grabbed this cute simple top, i was quite impressed with this event a small area, with small shops and a nice summery fantasy theme, so if you have time drop by there if not to look at the gifts and cheap bargains, to at least look at the Lucky boards, A gorgeous Mother Goose skin has been taunting me since the event started but never calls out my letter.

But not all is events and i finally got around to try the new mesh Maitreya Jeans, and all i can say is go pick up a demo and try them on, they are quite impressive and detail, and at the moment my favorite mesh jeans on the grid, and the flared cuffs are perfect for the summer.

Also new, well not really new but my first time wearing it here is my favourite LeLutka hair. For today that is all have a good day folks.

Paper boats in a paper sea

Standard

Tiny paper boats
In a tiny paper sea

Under a shining paper moon
Is quite the sight to see
With their tiny paper sails
Riding little paper tides
And the tiny paper fishes nibble
As the paper night wind sighs

The gentle flicker
Gleam and glow
Upon a paper wave
Each tiny part
A paper heart
Of those we long to save
To love
To lift above
This tiny paper sea
Reflecting the paper heavens

Oh, what a sight, indeed…

– K. S.

A wonderful project, that sprang from an amazing idea by Khyle Sion and will be available now at The Fantasy Faire  that started Yesterday. Unfortunately, RL stopped me from blogging this yesterday, but now here it is, a proper opening post for the whole Fair

You will find at the booth assigned to  Refined Wild two little gorgeous paper boats for sale that are part of an amazing project done specially for RFL and Fantasy Faire, each boat as a different price, you can customize one of the copies of the boat and resend it to Refined Wild´s owner Khyle Sion so it will be part of a bigger installation including all other paper boats sent to be a part of it, After the Faire, you’ll receive your boat back with a small surprise inside, and a letter of thanks for taking part in this project.

I´ve already did my Paper boat and will blog it soon at some point, and i+m super busy running around all the sims of the Faire taking pics to show you guys.

In the meanwhile is time to head of to one of the beautiful sims of the Faire and give a hand to  American Cancer Society.

Finally after weeks and weeks of waiting Fantasy Faire is here 9 sims 8 for shopping one for events (including auctions) and a lot and I mean a lot of the best in SL , I managed to visit all the sims Sha was wonderful as always and gathered a small preview on video for me to share. Again SL residents join efforts to raise funds for the American Cancer Society, by giving their time, work and love to those who really need it.

After seeing that I am sure you are all curious and dying to see it, trust me is well worth it most people wouldn´t even care for my silly pics after that amazing video, except I have something new and pretty to show, a new release from Wasabi Pills, it´s called Hawk and comes in all the usual colours and 3 new ones only for the Fantasy Faire, something not so new is the gorgeous obelisk i´m leaning on by Refined Wild, but it´s pretty awesome itself, 1 land impact and mesh with colour changing menu.

And last but not least this gorgeous gown by Illusions, I´m wearing the white version but there is a special black one just for the Faire.

The pics were taken an hour ago at one of the beautiful themed sims, Shifting Sands, built by Kayle Matzerath, one of the 9 beauties that await for the Faire doors to open and that happens tomorrow the 21st of April at noon sl time please look on their website here, for info on all the sims and the shops in them.
