Dress: {Zaara} - "Hansika" This gorgeous gown was at the "winter magic" event at black swan. When I went to watch the show, I knew that I just had to have it. It is simple and yet stunning. This empire length gown with its sweeping trail is entirely hand drawn. Plus the skirts works with nearly every AO! It is now available at Zaara's shop at her fantastic SIM. A gold edition has been added along with the original one in silver. So there is something for whatever your taste maybe. It comes with these layers : glitch (pants underpants), top (jacket, shirt undershirt), flexi skirt. Zaara's shop at her fantastic SIM is an eclectic fusion wear with rich textures and details is what forms the basis of this little boutique. You can also check the {Zaara} blog for updates.

First off all let me apologize that I have not been doing nearly as much blogging as I had hoped. unfortunately at times real life gets in the way and I apologize. I have to say as well, that of late Second Life has been a pain in the butt.. and just when I had nearly finished something crash, inventory missing or stuck. I really hope Second Life get their butts into gear and sort something out, there are a heap of unhappy campers out here.

So let me tell you about some of the fantastic events that are coming up soon. I am very excited about these and had to share them, yay for you if you have not seen them on other blogs if so.. well bad luck I'm excited, lol.

First off there is the EFA-AIFW2009 show. This is being held at 11.00 AM SLT on the 26th of January 2009. This is one show not to be missed! I have just copied and pasted the following from the EFA blog, ( EFA BLOG )The Ewing Fashion Agency will once again be joining forces with the Amsterdam-based real-world talent managers, The Artist Advice for another Second Life/Real World simultaneous fashion event. During the live fashion show at Beurs van Berlage (Amsterdam - The Netherlands), the Ewing Fashion Agency will host the Second Life version of the show at its Ischia sim location, where EGG Development will reproduce the venue of the show, The Beurs van Berlage.

Building on the success of last years First Fusion show, this year each event will be viewable to the other as they occur. The Real World creations of Real World designers Jennifer Delano, Melanie Brown and Eleonore de Ruuk are being recreated for the Second Life production by a talented lineup of Second Life designers: Digit Darkes, Neferia Abel, Sascha Frangilli, Simone Stern, Sysy Chapman and Zaara Kohime.

In acknowledgement of significance of these innovative collaborations, Runway Magazine and DX Exchange have signed on as corporate sponsors for the event. Beside the fashion show, also the DJ will be presented in both world, Damien Simons will be on stage in the Beurs van Berlage and at Ischia during the show.

Do not forget either that this awesome show will lead to a special addition of the RUNWAY magazine about the Amsterdam International Fashion Week 2009. This special edition will contain a lot of inside information and exclusive interviews from the RL- and the SL-parts of this event. So make sure you get your copy and read all about it.

I also have to make another comment about the models selected for this amazing show. So here are their names again, and looking at this you can tell this is going to be one incredible show.

Creators Stamp Rally - Winter 2008!

Posted by Jennaa Loire | Posted in | Posted on 9:16 PM

I went and did this today and loved it! So I had to do a blog post all about it... and tell you to get your bums off to do it. It's fantastic and the prizes are just awesome. This fantastic idea runs till the 18th of January 2009. So make sure you do it before it finishes.

Basically what happens is... you can get a CSR stamp card when you buy a CSR identified item. The card will be included with what you buy. This could be anything from a new hair at 69 to a new shirt at Cubic Effect. Once you have the card attach the card (either to any position of your body or to your HUD is okay), and visit all CSR stores. In no particular order, but you do need to visit all stores to complete your stamp collecting quest.

When you get to a store participating in the Rally touch a CSR stamping machine to stamp at the store. It's free, no charge. You can exchange your full stamped CSR stamp card (it must have 20 stores' stamps on it) to one of your favourite prizes available at the CSR Event Hall. No matter where you get a card. You can choose any prize you want. Here is the LM to the CSR Event Hall where you need to go to select your prize.

CSR EVENT HALL LM

As a stamp card is transferable, you can give it your friend to enjoy this event together. You can even give him/her your completed card as an easy and great gift. There is a fantastic set of instructions on the website... so if you get confused just head over there. It also has a list of SLURL'S you will need to hit every single one of the 20 shops you need to visit to get a stamp.

The best thing is I got three cards, with items I purchased over $100L and I attached all of them at the one time. That way every stamp I did, went to every card. So there is no need to do it over and over again. Unless you want to go back and visit all the amazing sims and shops again. I know I did. Alot of the stores have lucky chairs as well... so I managed to pick up a few extra items lol.

Creators Stamp Rally Website:

The website has a gallery of the prizes you can chose from, and the CSR Event Hall has alot of them displayed which is great to see what you are getting.

The designers and stores in this rally are just amazing... you really have to see the list.

Chicanery
HPMD (which personally I loved to pieces)
Draconic Kiss
**DP**yumyum
Feather
Sick
Zero Style
Gritty Kitty
::plod::
Black Knight
:: Sixty-nine ::*Edelweiss*
Ce Cubic Effect
Sweetest Good-bye
MAMESANDO
SEU
Picnic
Le Petit Prince
Vooner
Curious Kitties

Really if you are lost of confused hit the CSR website and anything you need answered is on that site. There are also fantastic photo instructions on how to claim your prize or if you are like me prizes. I love my prizes and am off to play with them! Get out there and get stamping people!

So it's been a while since I have written a week summary for a while, so again I apologize but I am sure you are all used to it by now. It's been an amazing time for me and I had a fantastic holiday season. So now it's a matter of getting back into the swing of things and making 2009 an awesome year for me on Second Life.

So far this year it's been insane and I have to say I am putting it down to experience. I attended the EWING casting call for the EFA-AIFW2009 on the 4th of January. I have to say it was the worst walk I have ever done. I am not putting myself down on purpose... but geez did I blow. My HUDDLES died and luckily I had some emergency poses in the corner of my screen. It was not only this but I didn't hit any of the marks as far as I could tell and I just thought I stunk.

I really look at situations and castings like that as experience. Every single one I do is a learning curve and I think even the top models of Second Life learn something new every time they walk. I love walking on the runway and hopefully will get the chance to walk more with shows and castings. It's just a matter of practice, practice, practice and keep learning. We can all wear the prettiest outfits and look good, but when you can walk well.. you can walk well! I really have learnt a lot of recent times about castings and how they work. It is really nerve racking to put yourself out there like that. When you do well though and it shows there is no better feeling.

Here is all the information about the casting, oh and also here is a link to
Tillie Ariantho's photo stream on flickr where you can find some amazing photos she did of the casting and the models. I love Tillie's photos. She does an amazing job to capture everything so quickly!

EFA: AIFW2009 Model Casting Call Photos!

EWING CASTING:
Last weekend the RL-audition for models for the EFA-AIFW2009 show took place in Amsterdam.


The Artist Advice: “For this show we need 30 models. We’re looking for tall and skinny models. The normal 1.75 - 1.80 length and sizes close to 90-60-90. We took basic pictures of the models and now we are waiting for the designers to decide which ones they like to see at the catwalk. This week the decision will be made!”

Also EFA will start to create the model team. Our team, led by top-model Rena Mascot, will consist of 8 models with more or less the same look as the RL models. Are you interested in walking on the runway during the EFA-AIFW2009 show and do you have extensive runway experience? Please read on and follow the instructions.

I have been given a lot of umm lets say criticism of late about my shopping habits on Second Life and to be honest I don't care. They're my lindens and I can do what I please with them! I love it and I love buying all these wonderful creations that the talented, artistic and wonderful designers of Second Life create with their valuable time let alone their genius minds.

So I thought this year, seeing I do so much shopping that I would share with you every day something that I have brought and loved. I'll try to cover a broad spectrum of designers and items to keep it interesting, and if I can, I'll rope some of my lovely male friends in to show some male items. That's right I'm coming after you boys! So starting today... is me. In the photo above and below I am wearing...

SHIRT: Emery - Tee Black "Shopoholic"

SKIN: Beauty Avatar Couture - "ENEA"Light Skin 3
