A Blog about Blogging :O

I´m pretty new at blogging, so I thought I should do at least one post on how the blog works, affiliations or lack of them, that sort of stuff. Well I blog whatever I can and have available time for basically, I try to give time to special events in SL, like I have these past few months with, Back to Black, Festival of Sin, EPOCH Legend, Mix+Mesh, March Mesh Madness, and also the regular monthly or weekly events like, COLLABOR88 Flux, The Dressing Room, The Dressing Room Blue, Lazy Sundays and a few more others. I also try on top of that to add a few hunts to the list, like I did with Gothmas by Gaslight Hunt, and soon The Twisted and Steam Hunts, as soon has I have the available time. This of course is not easy there are always so many events I can cover and there is also so many available lindens to spend, and that brings us to my next point. 99% of the items I review, use on photographs come out of my pocket, meaning I rush to the events (usually on Sundays mornings, when most US folks are still asleep) and spend my lindens on things I really like or would look good in pictures, so I can end up with a few things in my inventory that won´t be blogged right away, but will sit there waiting for the right opportunity to come out in the future.… Read the rest:D

Bring in the clowns

I did my usual event visit on sunday morning, which for me is always the best time for shopping, most of the US folks are still asleep, and i can run about big events almost lagless, and oh boy i had two of them to see this weekend. EPOCH Legend and Spring Fashion 2012: Mix+Mesh and i also had to stop by at The Dressing Room. I have been trying to keep up with most big event´s like Back to Black and The Festival of Sin since i started blogging more seriously, so my posts have featured items from these events regularly I will start with EPOCH Legend, and what i can say is wow it involves 3 locations, a lot of amazing creators, a lot of imagination and 3 separate themes i fell in love with totally, and i probably would have ended up buying everything if i could. You can also follow their blog, shopping guide, or their Flirck group, or visit the Creator´s Café. I did do some shopping from all 3 locations and will try to post to each of the 3 themes, so here it is the first one, clowning: I have to confess one thing, I hate clowns, they terrify me, i get shivers and cold sweats when i see one, a picture of one, and sometimes a simple red nose.… Read the rest

[Event] Back to Black – Look #07 + MINA @ Festival of Sin

This post closes my series about Back to Black and gives a very small glance to Festival of Sin. Please forgive my few words these days, it is a quite hard period in my RL. I know I'm not at my best in writing, in taking pictures and even in following events and catching up with all the things I would like to blog, but at this time I can't really help it. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

ChouChou is back!
What? Do you never heard about it? So is about time to know it.
ChouChou was the first “art” sim I ever saw in SL (2008), when I started to blog about places I looked for it, but the sim had vanished.
But it is back and you need to see it. This place is almost empty, with few objects over it, like a piano, a birdcage and a huge ladder, that is a teleporter for other ChouChou sims.
Is beautiful see this few objects reflecting in the water, the simplicity of this place makes it perfect for pictures.
At the landing point you will find a hud, that makes you see ChouChou as a movie.
In 2008 I never thought about it, but this time I wanted to know more about this sim, about the creators and I discovered that in fact ChouChou is a music group ( a duo, actually )formed on July, 2007 to search for new possibilities of music.

The Forbidden City – FOS and BTB

TheForbidden City is a RP combat sim with urban decay theme. There is some great buildings to explore and take pictures.
At landing point you will receive the sim’s rules, any person under 18 years old will be considered a trespassing. You can grab an observer tag or a combat meter, the system used here is the CCS, which is free.
After read the rules you can use the teleporter to reach the ground. The language spoken here is Spanish, so if you don’t know Spanish use a translator for RP.
At the ground you will arrive at a “rezz area”, which means it is free of combat. At this area you will find on line boards to GM if you are interested in join the RP.
This time I mixed and matched items from Back to Black (ends 24th at 4pm SLT) and Festival of Sim.
Unfortunately my time in SL is getting shorter, which means I won’t be able to cover events as I would like to, but I will do my best!

52 Weeks of colour – Dandelion

I have never did 52 weeks of colours, Luna´s jubilee challenge, because i just happened to have this lovely dress with the perfect colours and mood for a waiting for spring blog. It as been extremely fun to do pictures with snow and winter colors, but i guess everyone in sl is already a little tired of the cold, so here it is my first participation in 52 weeks of colour., Dandelion. I love this dress the colour is gorgeous and vibrant, i had also never tried couvertoure before and was delighted to see their shop with quite a few lovely mesh items, their pillows are gorgeous, in the meanwhile i had just recived this lovely necklace from CoLLisions available for Taste of SL, Wearing:

Fleshtone and some things that may come in handy

The top point of this post is to show you some items of the new Fleshtone spring collection, Part two is to tell you some more stuff about photo editing. The coat, pants, bag and jewelry are all part of the new Flestone collection. While I’d usually wear more colorful items, I wanted to dress Moniq in blacks and creams because of the yellowish windlight that I wanted to use. Also, these photos were edited in Pixlr (pixlr.com) which is a sort of online Photoshop. It has a lot of nice features (no liquify, but I found something else that almost works) and it’s something you can easily get used to. Also, for those who are Picnik fans, Pixlr Express is the way to go. Also, I love the retro-vintage effects provided by the site. I think it’s worth giving it a try, This photo has a very subtle vintage filter. Of course, you can see that it’s not as neatly edited as I usually do in PS, but I’m still adjusting to Pixlr.

It was pure coincidence that I was wearing this fabulous leather dress with feathers when I teleported over to check out The Magic Flute, but when I saw the first part of the exhibit, I thought it was too perfect for words. It made me smile, remembering a good college friend who played Papageno in a college production of the opera. I decided to take a few snaps, play the musical and remember old friends. Papageno is the birdcatcher and the initial room in The Magic Flute has this fabulous birdcage. There’s so much more, though, you really should visit yourself.

The bird theme continues with the flutter boots from Lassitude and Ennui – made for the Back to Black event. I love the modern abstraction in the jewelry – a new release from Kunglers. The gloves come with the dress. The makeup is Glam Affair and the hair is from Exile. Store info at Blogging Second Life

Wedding Day Post: A Leap of Faith

When I first saw the Courage pose from oOo Studio at Back to Black the song that popped into my head was Leap of Faith by Michelle Branch. Any type of relationship you have, be it in SL or RL, is a leap of faith. After a bit over a year partnered Salvatore and I are taking it a step further and having a wedding tonight. This was a tremendous leap of faith for me, but I have never lacked in courage. (...)

I didn’t know the store Jack Spoon until I saw this dress for Back to Black – the mental health awareness event that is currently hosted by Chic Management. The print is a wild Versace-esque print with a lace inset on the bodice. With the long sleeves and the high collar, there are references to modesty which take on a cheeky wit when balanced with that cutout bodice and short skirt. I pulled out the Flutter boots from Lassitude and Ennui again. They are totally one my list of the best finds of the Black to Black event and will probably be showing up again and again. Simple, but bold earrings from Kunglers and this super-cheeky updo from Truth reflect the easy comfort and cheekiness of the dress. The skin is also a great Back to Black find. From Idiosyncrasy, it’s called Imogen and has a great dusting of freckles. Store info at Blogging Second Life
