Love Donna Flora – Bring on the Whimsy

donnaflora

My posts are mostly about the event that will be opening tomorrow in Second Life – Love Donna Flora and I’ve been going around and looking at the event and I’m really impressed at the effort that has been made because it is nice to see our community as one, it’ makes me feel good.

The outfit I’m wearing in this post I went a bit whimsical for.

I took this pretty hair from Tableau Viviant and this top, lace capri tights and Antlers from Lark and these kitty shoes from Fri.day which are all items you can get at the Love Donna Flora and I used these poses from .click and brought even more whimsy into the outfit with the mouthie from Mish Mish and this cute bunny plushy from Anya Ohmai.

I also am wearing this tattoo from Chelle, and she has a few of them but this one was my favorite. Love Donna Flora will open tomorrow and you can find more information about this event by going here: http://lovedonnaflora.wordpress.com/

Petite Bowtique for Love Donna Flora

My daughter Ryleigh, owner of Petite Bowtique is also participating in the Love Donna Flora event and she made some really sweet and adorable matching mother and daughter dresses. You can also purchase the dresses separately. They are very cute and great for photos with your little one or fashionable enough to wear alone.

I had a lot of fun taking the pictures for these and it also makes me very proud of my daughter for participating in such a wonderful event. The Love Donna Flora event will open on July 25th @ 12:01 AM and close at midnight on August 11th. It will feature work from more than 100 creators with proceeds going to Squinternet Larnia of Donna Flora. You kind find out much more info about the event here and even add a message to Squirnernet Larnia of your own: http://lovedonnaflora.wordpress.com/

Archie Appeal Funding Raising Event @ Truth District

I went and checked out the Archie Appeal Event for Gospel Voom’s Beloved cat Archibald. There are many designers showing support with items being sold to benefit Archie’s treatment which will easily get up into five figures.. and if you have ever had a pet that you just loved so much you know that this is a nightmare.

If we could all pull together a little right now for Gos and Archie as a community to support a Pet and Pet Owner that has come to mean so much to the SL community any little bit would help. There are even donation kiosks’s available at the event.

For my post I am wearing.. not much.. because the Entire Gos store on the Truth District sim is half off.. and you if you are going to go naked you may as well be in Gos shoes. The stacked poses that I am using are from oOoStudios and they have several different poses in them and the prop is mesh and very easy to adjust.

I had a lot of fun with these poses. The other designers who are also taking part in this event are: !bang, .emm, *elymode*, A.D.D. Andel, bent!, wetcat, Eclat, Embody, exposeur, Gos, ooo studios, picture this!, Prime, Somnia, and Status. I believe more may be added.

“Starting today and running through Sept 2nd, a fundraising event is being held at the Truth District sim to raise monies for Archibald. “Archie” is the cat of Gospel Voom, creator of Gos. He was hit by a car last Saturday night and miraculously survived and found his way home, but he was in bad shape. He is being treated for his massive head and facial injuries, and as you can imagine, the surgeries and veterinary costs have already been and will continue to be astronomical – into the 5 digits!

Truth District and several talented friends from across the grid have come together in support by volunteering their creations as donations to help pay for these expenses. Most of the items are 100% donation, and the entire Gos store (on the Truth District sim) is 50% off. Anyone that has ever had a pet knows how they are more than just an animal, but are instead a member of the family. If you feel so inclined to help this cause, head on over to Truth District today.”

You can see everything that is being sold here at the SeraphimSL Blog:

reBourne @ the SL Home and Garden Expo

The Second Life Home and Garden Expo which is a Relay for Life event opens today May 19th at 6am SLT, and remain open 24 hours each day until it closes on May 28th at 10pm SLT.

I was granted early access to look around and I stopped at the reBourne display and fell in love with a beautiful dome house and tried the best I could to capture it’s beauty.


But you see, this house much like all of the homes by reBourne must be seen in person to really experience. It is a sensory delight. The textures are perfect, there are sounds and for me someone who cannot see shadows in Second Life yet I love the shadows that I can see in the house from the sublime texturing.

If you are looking for a beautiful beach home whether on land or in the sky this would be perfect for you. This house is flawless, you must see it at the expo.

There are 14 sims to explore so if you are in the market for a beautiful new home there are plenty to suit anyone’s taste and budget. It’s just a matter of checking it all out and taking in all the beauty that can be found.

Kittycats at SL Home Garden and Patio Expo!

One of the most amazing things in Second Life is the creativity that goes into each item made and if you visit Home Expo Sim 5 today you will see gigantic kittycats larger than life. Kittycats has generously agreed to sponsor a sim for the expo and it’s full of huge adorable cats (and some of them are even functional)! Also this is just a rumor but in kittycats chats there was an indication that they could be auctioning off some of the huge cats to benefit RFL!

Also if that isn’t exciting enough.. check this out – “The new KittyCat will make its debut at the Home Expo on May 14th. Callie Cline and Equinox Pinion will be presenting the new kitty on the Expo’s Main Stage at 12:30 pm, followed by the launch of a live music concert with Mankind Tracer. This marks the first time that RFL of SL has joined in a partnership of this type and they look forward to the KittyCatS’ presence at Relay Team Events, at the Expo and at Relay weekend, right alongside the Linden Bears.” So yes that means a new kittycat will be joining us soon! I’m excited to find out what it is!

SL Home, Garden and Patio Expo!

I am happy to have a sneak peak at the SL Home, Garden and Patio Expo. There are ten sims chock full of stuff! If you are looking for a list of who is participating go here for a list of who is who and what Home Expo Sim Number they are on.

From the website this is what its about:
“Welcome to the 2011 Home, Garden and Patio Expo!! 2011′s Expo, will open on Friday, May 13th at NOON, and remain open 24 hours each day until it closes on May 22nd at 10pm SLTAs always we have the best of the best in SL home designs!! From Landscaping to Furniture to Homes and everything in between, we have anything you would ever need to set up your dream home in SL!!” Sounds pretty exciting, right?

Another point of interest is that they are raising funds for RFL.. and there are many good items worth purchasing and you can feel good knowing that your lindens are going towards something meaningful. For a full list of the RFL Vendors go here.

Something else that you can look forward to is music, and lots of it! They seem to have DJ’s to well known Second Life Musicians on the main stage. Want a schedule of that? Go here.

What I plan on doing is featuring my favorites in blog posts. I’ve been going around trying to snap good photos. It’s a bit tricky though because there are many sculpty type things. It’s best to go in low graphics and minimal prims.

The Rather Unfairground (A slightly villianous RFL Charity Event)


So my talented and gorgeous wifey Miss Marleen Vaughan was asked to make something for the Rather Unfairgrounds Relay for life charity event going on this weekend.. and the theme is slightly villianous, slightly steampunk and she came up with this fantastically creative item which she named “The Sinister Goggles” for something that is a new project in the works called Vaughans house of curiousities. For 123L you can purchase these goggles and 100 percent of your purchase goes towards helping Relay for Life. I need to go and look around the event more but it looks wicked cool..

Tea Lane @ The Hair Fair

If you do not know the Hair Fair is gearing up to run from September 4th to September 19th. This is one of the styles that was dropped into my inventory by Tea Lane who is a Hair Fair Participant this year.

The style is called “Wasted Tiers” and I think it is super fun. It comes in many colors and is 100L a pack with Fifty Percent of it’s proceeds going to Wigs for Kids which is a wonderful thing, because not only are you supporting great designers you are helping children. The Hair Fair opens today for bloggers and I will be doing my best to show you my favorites.
