CD LI Frozen modified_editFirst I have Living Imagination’s Free Romance – Frozen.  I wore it this way for AVENUE’s recent White and Gold Holiday Party.  I accessorized it with the fabulous GizzA – XMAS Horns [ J&A EXPO GIFT ] and the Mandala Polly jewelry set in gold and white.

CD LI Frozen original_farHere is the gown in its original glory.  Since the party I was attending was “white and gold” I needed to change things up a bit.

CD LI Frozen original_closeThis lovely gown is a part of this round of The Couturier’s Docks and a limited edition, so you had best hurry on over for it!

I was away from home the past couple of days enjoying some mountain resort time with my hubby and son.  While I was gone the first items from the Fantasy Gacha Carnival were delivered to me and I knew as soon as I got home I would have to unpack and share!

CD + FGC_farI decided to wear yet another lovely Couturier’s Dock item by h.m.a.e.m. called “Ladybug dress.”  It too is limited edition so don’t miss out on it! I coupled it with the 1st items shared with us for the Fantasy Gacha Carnival by .Luminary., the Hermione Crown – Gold and the Boleyn Necklace – S.

CD + FGC_closeThe theme of this round of the Fantasy Gacha Carnival is “Winter Wonderland.”  Augurer, the mind behind .Luminary., was influenced by “The Winter’s Tale” by William Shakespeare when creating items for this round of the Carnival. The items are thereby designed with the Tudor era in mind. The necklace I am wearing is a common item (Augurer was sweet enough to give me one that bore the initial of my first name) and it was modeled after Anne Boleyn’s famous necklace.  The Hermione Crown is a rare item and available in three colors.  Here is a fun fact provided by Augurer…Did you know some people suspect that “The Winter’s Tale” was inspired by the story of Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII?  Either way, the items created by .Luminary. are stunning.  The next round of the Fantasy Gacha starts February 1st and lasts the entire month.

All poses used were *Manifeste* and photos were taken at Neva Sky Villi.

Thank you for reading and I hope you all have a wonderful 2014, filled with only the very best!

Surreal Musings

…And to everything, there is a beginning…

For me, that beginning came from both an obvious source as well as one more unexpected, but isn’t that a wonderful start of the story?  This blog exists almost entirely because of my dear friend and soul’s sister, Prisilla S. Avro who has shared so much of her journey with me that I found it impossible not to embark on this with her as well.  At a later day I will devote an entire post to my beloved Silly or as I like to call her, JLo Banks.  For the time being, I will simply share that she has long been an avid blogger and her passion for it as well as the joy she derives from the process finally won over my reservations.

A more unforeseen impetus arrived in the form of the multitalented and indomitable Nariko Okawa.  I have the…

Artemis

Hello Readers!

I am happy to share with you a very special moment in my modeling career.  The photo in this post was taken and processed for me by my good friend and talented photographer Nariko Okawa.  It captures the final challenge in Style Kingdom‘s 2nd Public Casting, the theme of which was lingerie.  I had been a part of the 1st public casting as well, and sadly came in 5th.  I enjoyed the open and honest critiques, meeting the judges who are names in the SL fashion industry in themselves, and the growth promoted by the styling challenges.  So while disappointed in my final placement, I was inspired to improve and have another go, even if that meant I was now competing against 80 other talented models/stylists instead of 25.

One would think the theme of lingerie would be simple, but it is complex in its simplicity.  There are so many ways one could go when styling lingerie…Victoria’s Secret? Boudoir? Showgirl? Dominatrix?  It is important to be unique in a casting, so that you aren’t just another pretty face, but also to keep sight of the theme.  So for me this meant digging around in my inventory for a piece to build around.  I have collected various things from Remarkable Oblivion (RO) since my AVENUE graduation show.  There is just something about RO items that convey fierceness and strength.  I had picked up a few RO items at the Body Modification Expo a few months back, with no real agenda.  I bought them because I liked them and in modeling you never know when an item will go perfectly with a look until you are styling.  In this case it was the Baphomet Horns – Celestial.  So I began with the horns and built the look around them, knowing lingerie had to be a part and thinking on what story I could tell.  As the look came together it became clear to me what I was building.  Artemis.

 (click photo to enlarge)Silly _ Artemis~

I am familiar with many of the Greek gods and goddesses, but allow me to paraphrase from Wikipedia.  Artemis is known as the  daughter of Zeus and Leto, and the twin sister of Apollo. She is often referenced as “Mistress of Animals.” She was the Hellenic goddess of the hunt, wild animals, wilderness, childbirth, virginity and protector of young girls, bringing and relieving disease in women. She often was depicted as a huntress carrying a bow and arrows. The deer and the cypress were sacred to her.

I attempted to capture as much of the essence of Artemis as I could in my styling, right down to the Manticore deer (tho admittedly it was more like a deer/dog as many have called it -lol-).  I built my look with many different designers…BlackLace, LpD, Zaara, Ison, Lelutka, Madrid Solo, Remarkable Oblivion, Baubles!, and the weapon maker Larion Rhode (LR Weapons).  I was amused that my prior experience in combat role play led me to a more than just a prop bow…I could really go out and shoot someone with it if I wanted to!

As with all of the SK challenge judging I was nervous as heck before taking the runway and standing before the judges, but I was pleased with what I had done and felt I approached the theme in a unique way.  I was overjoyed to find that the judges agreed, and that this time I would place 1st.  This was truly a momentous occasion in my SL modeling career.  I had suffered many rejections as all models do, but this time I was accepted and welcomed into a new family I am very eager to work with.

I would like to thank all the judges I have had the pleasure to meet and talk to over both castings…Dougie Boxen, Kiana Lexenstar, Cruz Quinnell, Pam Astonia, Payton Heron, RhiannaLynn Lane, Paradox Messmer, Jade Spectre, and Absinthe.  Your honest critiques gave me much needed food for thought and fuel for growth.

Walking with Shanina

Hello Readers!

I am happily cleaning my inventory and attempting to stay on top of designer’s latest releases.  Today I have some fun from Chandni Kondji of Hopscotch.  Up first I have a pose and prop set called “Fancy a walk?”

I had read recently that Mad City was done over for the holidays so I thought I would go there for this shoot. I was not disappointed, it was perfect.

Next I would like to share the latest group gift from Natalie Wells of Deesses Skins.  She gifted us all with Shanina in 8 tones. I chose the skin tone I normally wear in her skin line “ice frappe” and added one of her lipsticks called ” decadent.” I then outfitted myself in some LivGlam, and accessorized with Emotions and Yummy.

I am including the vendor photos of Chandni’s other props from Hopscotch as I just didn’t think I could shoot them any better!  Her creativity and whimsy amaze me.
