Hello Readers!

In my last post I alluded to trying out some new things this coming year in SL and one of those things is having a son! Well, I have a son in RL and he has long been interested in SL and quite the lil gamer himself, so I made him an account so that he and I could experience SL together! There are a few things I have in mind for him, and I won’t share those things just yet as I am not sure how many of them will materialize, but if they do, my son and I are going to be cracking up quite a bit. He really is my lil sidekick and I love him to bits. Made sense to me to share Second Life with him where we could have even more fun!

Since I was all excited about my Bento makeover I was just as excited to make my son a cool looking, age-appropriate avatar! I admit I was kinda scratching my head on this one as there sure are a lot of toddler avatars and toddler fashion, but no where near the same offerings for more teenaged looking avatars. Knowing how much Trouble Dethly of PENUMBRA/Eclipse & Spotlight (such a busy guy!) supports the toddler community in SL, I figured he was the right guy to reach out to (not to mention he is super cool and my bro) and I was right! He connected me with Kenzie Thomas Numbers (mckenzieky) of MESHMERIZED and that is all it took! My son’s avatar is perfect and he has some fun kid appropriate clothing. My son’s skin and shape are from MESHMERIZED as well as his cute lil lip tattoo. In this photo, I wanted him to dress up and not clash with Mommy’s outfit so I took him over to ISON and got him a few things including the Scoopneck Sweater he is wearing. His hair is Boys & Girls 27 from Dura.

Once my son’s avatar was ready and I handed it over to my son to play with, I asked him if he might want to model like mommy and he was like “YEAH!” Next step, launching my son’s teen modeling career!

Thanks for reading! Oh, and in case you are wondering what I am wearing, I pulled out some oldies but goodies from my inventory! I am wearing a Truth Hair called Soliel from 2013 and a Valentina E Floral Bohemian Coat from 2015! I am also wearing Kunglers Lakshmi Necklace and Jeune by Rowne Emeline Leather Jumpsuit. The pose is by KaTink and called “Besties for Life” (so true) and the photo was shot on the KaTink sim.

And now for a song my son and I love clapping to:

New Folklore

Hello Readers!

Coming back from a vacation and trying to get back into the swing of things can certainly be a challenge. Here is a look I did for Ferosh’s casting before I went on vacation.  The theme was “New Folklore” which I took to be an edgy and ethnic take on boho.  I was quite pleased with my work.  I didn’t make it to the next round, but se la vie.  I am strong enough to know that being eliminated from a casting doesn’t make me any less of a person, I just happen to not be what is being sought and that is completely alright.  I am never bitter or discouraged, my Second Life marches on! As Sea would say “You can only be your very best.”  So long as I am doing that I am happy no matter the outcome.

Golden Ocean

Hello Readers,

Today I have a bit of The Couturier’s Docks courtesy of Syra Hyun of Baoba. Her hats have been a long time favorite of mine and I love how striking they are.

The arrival “Golden Ocean” kicked off a whole sea image in my mind and made me willing to test my PhotoShop skills and patience as I worked on the above photo.  I am sure I could have added more to it to give it that “underwater” feel…but all in good time.

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.

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.
