Dressed in One Voice

My post’s are a bit behind this week as I was in the hospital for a few days but if there is one event that needs to be checked out this week and it’s the only one that you can go to.. may I suggest One Voice. It amazes me that the community pulls together in such a beautiful way.

I was moved walking around this event that benefits Miss Gala Phoenix of Curio Skins to help pay for some of the substantial legal fees she is facing in defense of her work her in SL. The organizers who put this together also deserve a huge pat on the back for making this work so seamlessly in such a short time.

“This fundraiser is not only to help Gala Phoenix, but to also take a stand for the community of content creators, for many of whom SL is their main source of income. This could happen to any one of us, and it’s necessary that we stand up and fight back to ensure that it doesn’t.”

So if you think this doesn’t effect you chances are you are mistaken. Without innovative content creators in SL we would all be walking around looking like Ruth, I’d imagine anyhow. For more info see my post here: https://sylviaolivier.wordpress.com/

Oh? You wanna see the goods? Well everything I’m wearing is from One Voice. The hair from Exile. The dress from Geometry. The skin from Lara Hurley. The poses from the Tillie pose stand that is on sale for 400 lindens and it comes with poses from Diesel Works and Glitterati already loaded in it. The eyes are mesh eyes from Mayfly. My shoes are from NCore. All of this you can get here: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Mesh/29/177/

There is a little bit of everything here for all tastes and budget and completely easy to throw a little support someones way that really deserves it.

One Voice – REPOST

one voice. July 9 – 15. fundraiser info.

Curio’s Gala Phoenix is currently in the midst of legal issues which have resulted in her content being removed from the grid, pending the outcome of her legal battle. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) process in Second Life requires that when there is legal action taken against your content, Linden Lab will remove it from the grid until a ruling is made. Gala’s fellow content creators have come together to host a fundraiser to help with the enormous amount of legal fees she will have to bare in order to fight these baseless claims.

The fundraiser will be held from July 9-15, with a blogger preview on July 8th.

Some participants include Flowey, BareRose, Black Lace, Belleza, Ingenue, Laq, Luck Inc, One Bad Pixel, Gos, Truth, Bent, Fawn, Cupcake, evolve, Glam Affair, ely, Lassitude & Ennui, Zanzibar, Adorkable, Ikon, League and many more.

This fundraiser is not only to help Gala Phoenix, but to also take a stand for the community of content creators, for many of whom SL is their main source of income. This could happen to any one of us, and it’s necessary that we stand up and fight back to ensure that it doesn’t.

Please contact Sophia Harlow or OMGWTF Barbecue if you’d like to participate as a content creator or blogger, and join the inworld group One Voice for updates and the LM when we open!

More from Collabor88!

So, almost everything in the post that I am wearing I found at Collabor88. The beautiful vintage slip dress from Nylon Outfitters, the pearl necklace from Yummy which is even prettier on.. the Elikatira hair in “Soft” and the furniture set in this post from Lisp.. and this standing pose from Marukin. Most of these items are only 88L each.. so really it’s a steal!

I don’t know what else to say except for I love Collabor88, and I think that each month the designers involved go above and beyond and really amaze me with each new month.. it just seems to keep getting better!

League, Curio and Baffle! At the Vintage Fair.

League is easily one of my favorite stores in Second Life. When I saw this set though from the Vintage Fair.. I knew it had to be mine. I love, love love the texturing on and and over all quality. This is a very beautiful and oh-so sexy lingerie set, just look for yourself.

My skin is from Curio that I’ve worn in a previous post available at the Vintage fair, but I can say with confidence that I am in love with the pouty crimson lips on this one.

Also this bed from Baffle! is my brand new bedroom bed. “Grandma’s bed” from Baffle! at the Vintage fair comes with a few different sleeping/sitting poses and three very cute couple poses. Also on a side note.. Baffle is an impressive pose shop, I don’t know if you have seen it but it is worth an inworld visit. The poses and props are very reasonably priced and well done. Anyhow that is all for now.. have a happy monday 🙂

Vintage Lounging

Good.. morning.. err I mean afternoon.. I can’t seem to get my bum up off of this new release from Lost Angel Industries new to the Vintage Fair today. The Vintage Lounge Solo comes with ten different sultry poses for you to drape, shiver and stretch all over. The textures on this are gorgeous and it really is a must have for photographers and beauty admirers alike.

While we are on the topic of the Vintage Fair.. I have found some more lovely things to show. The hair that I am wearing is new from Ploom, called Mimi. Very, very adorable style. I love the HUD that comes with the hair. It’s easy to change between the colors that are in the pack and you can add streaks! I love the little curl resting on the side of my face here. My Lingerie is from D.Select. I get excited when I see new D.Select stuff so I had to pick this up too. My shoes are the Glitter shoes from N-Core.

The Necklace and earring set comes from Donna Flora and is called “Silvia” It is a beautiful and bold set making me remember the saying “diamonds are a girls best friend…” The HUD also comes with many jewel options. Gawgeous, darling.

The house and walls in my background is the Odette house made by Funky Junk.. seriously one of the best houses that I have bought and there is a new house called the Pasadena house at the fair from Funky Junk worthy of checking out!

Remember, The Vintage Fair opens today at Four SLT.

An Extraordinary Machine..

I thought much of the song by Fiona Apple today while putting together some things I snagged from the Vintage Fair Blogger preview. The theme of course is Vintage but no where does it say which Vintage it is, so I believe that it is up to your own interpretation of what Vintage you are looking for.

The shoes that I am wearing while not at the Fair are gorgeous and a brand new release from SLink that to me definitely capture the spirit of Vintage.

Everything else that I am wearing or posing with comes from the Vintage Fair. The La Malvada Mujer Tattoo in So Long Marianne. The hair from Loq called “Red Wine”… the flawless skirt that I have so much love for by Ingenue who really shines at this event called “Lana”. The gorgeously vintage Curio skin called Vintage Ritz and a new to me jewelry store called Amorous bringing the Antiquarian set to the fair in Midnight.

The poses on the chaise is from MiaMai who really wowed me with this Victorian posing room. You must see this in world because the textures are beautiful. My standing poses in this post are from OooStudios.. who have put out some absolutely gorgeous vintage poses.

There was a whole lot of creativity put into the event by the designers and I can say with confidence that there is something for everyone. You can visit the Fair yourself tomorrow November 11th, but it does not open till 4PM SLT.

I <3 Kari..

Menno Ophelia of the Second Life store Kari has made a few lovely new releases lately. Shown in this post are two of the newest; The hand of Fatima necklace and the Turtle Backpack. I love the texture and quality of the items that come from this store. Everything looks so real and fresh and the prices are always reasonable.

I am also wearing a brand new hair from Truth Hawks in Delia. There was a total of five hair releases today by Truth and some very happy ladies on the grid to be able to get their hands on some brand new gorgeous locks. I probably squeed or something when I saw the new styles on flickr this afternoon! Yep, I’m that much of a dork.

I am also wearing some ultra casual PJ’s from Mon Tissu and some Curio skin (Fall/Owl). I hope you are having a great weekend.

Newness from LeeZu!

LeeZu! never fails to amaze me with her new releases. The newest release Sissy is adorable. The tights are some of my favorite now in SL mixing playful floral with sexy fishnet. The Skirt and cardigan are exquisitely made as well and the colors throw a coy nod to Autumn.

Clothes from Leezu! are never a disappointment to me. Every time I go and visit her store I can find something new to fall in love with all over again. The cardigan comes in olive, forest, cream, brown, blue, and black while the linen skirt comes in black, gold, graybrown, and pink. The tights come in black, goblin, green, olive, pink, turquoise, and yellow.

You have ample opportunity to try different color combinations. I tried the ensemble of colors that normally I would not.. but I’m taking a risk here going outside my comfort zone with the golden maize tones and I have to say I love it!

The hair is so far the best mesh hair I’ve seen and it’s made by Lelutka. The Yippie hair while I’m not use to mesh hair was a good experience for me in this shoot as it did not compromise the lines of the jacket or get in the way. I am also wearing the Astrid boots from Slink and poses are from Del May.

The Fashion Garret has some nice stuff!

First off MOOD offers up this enchanting set called the Profonde Ensemble compromised of this beautiful color of blue and dark silvery stones. I love love love the colors swirling in the earrings. I actually built my outfit around the accessories, as this reminds me of something that I’d wear out to a nice club dancing and having a good time. It’s a steal at 65L for both the earring and necklace. This is a notable piece and yours at the Fashion Garret for the next few weeks for a low introductory price.

While I was there I picked up this shirt from Haut Monde. I love the texturing on this – it’s really pretty and well done. I also picked up these shoes from N-Core.. which they were a pleasant surprise to come from the Fashion Garret in this sparkly purple tone. I am wearing the freebie fuzzy tights from Jane that was a recent gift and a denim skirt that was previously sold at Grixdale that I still absolutely love. Happy shopping.. get over there and buy!

This is one of the things that you can get for half off.. it’s the Mudhoney Castor sofa.. and it’s beautiful.
