1slink

Hello! I have some pretty shoes and feet to show you. Siddean Munro has made a brand new Slink foot with an even higher base for even higher heels. This is win! But before I talk more about that check out the ankle that I’m wearing on these brand new feet.

Caelan Hancroft of Cae has made some cute little Gacha anklets that can be moved and shift around to fit almost any foot. These are super detailed and very cute! There are several to win and the one that I am showing is a rare.

Shoetopia: Your Shoe Heaven in the Clouds

build

In a few day’s Shoetopia will be open access for all.

I wanted to take a few photos of the build and share them. There are two sims and they are in a large circle with two offsets on each sim for the gacha machines, the sponsors in the middle and all the other stores around the circle. I like the layout and design of Shoetopia and it was easy to get around which is important in a fair in Second Life.

I have a copy of the official press release for the event that I’m going to post below. It has more information in it and better put than I could give you:

SHOETOPIA 2013, The long awaited return of the ‘premiere shoe event’ in Second Life is set to open on Friday, November 15th, 2013.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Press Contact: Anessa Stine

November 12, 2013 — Announced way back in January of this year, SHOETOPIA is the reincarnation of the most popular footwear event in Second Life, SHOE FAIR, which has been missing in action since June 2011. Now, almost 10 months since it was announced, SHOETOPIA 2013 is set to open on the 15th of this month with an ethereal build by Artist Rebeca Bashly, that promises to have you in Shoe Heaven! Excited designers and shoe lovers alike, have delighted at the promise of a ‘New Kind of Shoe Fair’, and the anticipation has been building steadily as opening day draws closer.

Conceived by long time Event Coordinators, Business Managers and Second Life Fashion Bloggers, Sophia Harlow and Anessa Stine, SHOETOPIA is their first collaborative effort combining a mutual love of fashion, respect for ingenuity and quality, and desire to create a memorable and special annual event to fill the void in the Second Life event calendar created when SHOE FAIR failed to take place in 2012. Says Sophia, “When the thought dawned on me that there needed to be a footwear event in Second Life again, there was only one person that I approached. Anessa has always been a ‘Shoe Girl’, and her creative vision was the perfect compliment to my detail oriented planning skills and excellent relationships with many SL Creators.” Both Sophia and Anessa are thankful to the many volunteers who are dedicated to making this event a success.

Carrying on the tradition of it predecessor, SHOETOPIA has selected the charity organization Soles4Souls as its ‘Sole’ beneficiary. This is a charity that touches all shoe lovers, an organization that not only supports those in need domestically, in North America, but also those met with disaster around the world. Says Anessa, “An organization that puts shoes on the feet of underprivileged children so they can attend schools, allows domestic abuse victims to have a second chance at entering the workforce in style, creates jobs in the most needy of communities, and uses the slogan ‘every shoe deserves a Second Life’, it could not be a more worthy or appropriate organization to benefit from all of our efforts.” The timing of SHOETOPIA could not be more advantageous to Soles4Souls, already hard at work preparing to assist those affected by the recent storms in the Philippines and Southeast Asia, each participating designer will be offering up an item that will see 100% of its proceeds go directly to Soles4Souls.

With more than 50 of Second Life’s most talented footwear designers, and dozens of incredible contributing gacha designers, there will something for everyone on this stroll through the clouds. Major Sponsors; Slink, Gos Boutique, Just Design and LaRoo, and additional sponsors; ISON, KOSH, lassitude & ennui, House of London, KoiKoi, fri.day, sYs, House of Fox, Glam Affair, G Field, Valiant and ViveNine/Ryvolter, will all be releasing new items at SHOETOPIA, as will each and every one of the participants. Says Anessa, “The response from designers has been so positive, we are overwhelmed by the quality of the footwear at this event.”

SHOETOPIA will be pleased to welcome all of you to visit our slice of ‘Shoe Heaven’ between November 15th and 30th of this year, in what promises to be the first of many ‘Shoetopian’ events to come!

More from Collabor88 in this post.

The build that I’m using is from Scarlet Creative and it one of the coolest little builds that I’ve seen in awhile. I will probably show more of it in another post but this is the little pool that comes with it and has a few sitting and lounging poses.

The necklace that I’m wearing is from LaGyo, also for Collabo88. I adore the metal flowers on it and this hair is the Beck hair from Tableau Viviant and the skin is from Glam Affair – Elvi/America/#10.

I’m also wearing the L.inc Phat Azz in this post. Bare Feet from Gos Boutique and hands from Slink in Elegant.

Yes, I bought an Azz

booteh

So, I bought one of those Phat Azz’s. I wasn’t gonna at first but Glam Affair made appliers, and then Izzies made this cute bra and panty set so I was curious.

Will I wear it all the time? No. I just kinda wanted to try it and do a photo. I don’t know if they will catch on like the Lola’s did but maybe? The butt is kinda neat though and I look forward to see what people will do as far as appliers though.

One thing you gotta do when you get it is read the note card as far as your shape goes. You gotta put your body fat down to 0 and your belly at 15. I think it would have been better if they made the Azz in standard sizing and a bit more realistic but there are some sliders that you can play around with and a a few variations.

It’s up to you! After having purchased it I feel sort of neutral. I don’t regret my purchase but then again I’m not sure how much use I will get out of it. I came, I saw, I got a Phat Azz. You can get your own Phat Azz or demo it at Luck Inc.

I am also wearing cute polka dotted bra and panties from Izzies. New Rocky hair from Truth, Mandala ears, slink hands and Gos Feet.

Collabor88 Glam

Mid Summer Nights at Collabor88 begins soon!

Tomorrow Collabor88 starts a new round and the theme for the month of July is “Mid Summer Night”. I’m very excited about this round and have seen a few things so far that I love. Two of them are in this post! This bed from Tableau Viviant and this dress from Decoy.

I look forward to Collabor88 every month and always love the things that come from it. I think next month Collabor88 will turn two years old! I look forward to seeing what else comes about this round – and I especially like the theme. The best time I’ve found to go to Collabor88 when it first opens is early morning, there are still many people but I’ve found that to be the easiest time!

Strawberry Singh’s SL Movie Poster Challenge!

slect

Monday Meme Instructions: The challenge for this week is to create a movie poster for your SL Avatar or SLife. You can base it off an original movie poster or think of a completely new idea of your own! Get creative and have some fun with it! You can see Berry’s fabulous post here: http://strawberrysingh.com/2013/06/10/my-sl-movie-poster-challenge/

So I did this poster of my SL Life and tried to change it up a little bit. I did this poster about two years ago for another challenge, you can see my first attempt at this poster here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sylvia_olivier/5771916298/

I’ve fallen off the wagon a bit with the Meme Mondays that Berry does but I think about them every week at least! This was a really fun one and who knows I may do more, I am enjoying this a lot.

For this picture, I found the mini skirt at Fanatik, the shoes are from Gos Boutique and the stockings are from Sheer and I kinda PS’d them in at the bottoms rather poorly but don’t judge lol! The pose is an old one from PDA that was a gift so I’m not sure that its still available. I’m also wearing Slink mesh hands.

Cae – Kasbah for June Fameshed

The Cae – Kasbah set for June Fameshed will be available for purchase on June 1st 2013 at 12:00 A.M SLT. The set is customizable with several different stones to choose from. You can make the entire set one color as I did above or your can group it into two different colors of your choice and you can even select the metal that you would like to use. This set is so pretty to me and intricate with detail, ornate. It comes with two rings, two bracelets, earrings and a necklace.

I am also wearing the new Cleo skin from Glam Affair, with Glam Affair hand appliers for Slink Mesh hands, hair from Exile and my pose is from Exposeur. My eyes are from Ikon.
