Grip Burn

Standard

So many things happening lately, events, Fairs and a lot of talk about bloggers and blogging in general earlier doing the week someone on my timeline replurked this wonderful article It’s Open Season on Bloggers!! ANNIE – Get Your Gun!!, well worth reading if you want an idea on what sort of stuff bloggers do (I also highly recomend the whole blog and i´m very happy i stumbled on it), just as an example the 3 pics here took me around 3 hours to do, from putting on an outfit to manage to position myself well enough so I could take the picture, you see when you are trying to photograph something and you can´t build is hard to position yourself, I had to fly and then place my avatar in a way so that it didn´t look like my feet where anywhere else but the actual scenery, that takes some time, and apparently is harder to do when a cat is trying to sit on your keyboard. But speaking of events…

I´ll start first La Venta Eventa where I grabbed these awesome boots I had been eyeing for sometime at lassitude & ennui, and the hair I had been dreaming about since I saw it on plurk . The hair is from Discord Designs and what can I say it totally rocks, and comes just in time, because Crazy Hair Hunt 3 is just staring Saturday and Discord Designs is also in it, I did get a sneak peek at their hunt prize, and this is one hunt  not to miss.

I´m also wearing my World Goth Fair blogger t-shirt here as I get ready for it, so many events and so little time. On a small note, these pics where inspired by the wonderful work of Sian Pearl over at parthenoid.

I made this post to tell a story, well not really a story, i just wanted to show of these gorgeous bracelets.

I discovered like many Maxi Gossamer´s work at the March Mesh Madness event, I was completely oblivious of any new shops doing jewelry and in mesh, maybe I was living under a rock, but thank god I came out of it.

Back then i bought a few pieces excited by the look and the very affordable prices, later on a friend recommended me to join their group, for the occasional gift and updates on new releases, and I certainly did. Last weekend I was home sitting, wondering what pics to take next, when the news of this release came thru the group and immediately ran of to the store to grab the gorgeous bracelets and at least another piece i fell in love with, unfortunately SL hates me and had eaten the contents of my box, but thanks to their excellent costumer service i got them back in minutes, and was delighted with how fast and how wonderful it all worked out.

I also wanted to show this lovely necklace from Yummy, it came from a jewelry grabpack available at their store for 100L, that includes a few more precious goodies like this one.

I´m also wearing one of Lamb´s new rigged mesh hairs, and god I have totally fallen in love with these, another shop doing amazing work in mesh.

Last but not least a group gift, this one from Lisp a lovely set of chairs perfect for summer with several accessories, perfect for a terrace or a garden, I myself keep mine by the pier.

A small note on a big affair

Standard

Something came to my knowledge thru the SLUniverse forum in this thread Damn. I’ve been Hall of Shamed, I won´t repeat myself on subjects since all my opinions on the issue are quite clearly stated both on that thread and on Associated SL Press site (which I won´t link here since I have no intention to give that site any sort of traffic).

I´m writing this post tho to make clear I have never worked and probably never will with the people involved in this whole fiasco, I did try to cover Fashion for Life as best as possible, like I do with all the events that come to my attention, and I still have some items from there I intend to blog, that will probably not be available anymore in those colours, at the merchants stores and will not be marked as being part of this event.

I have no intention to stop blogging Relay for Life events or other charities, but I do reasearch who is behind them and who the organizers are with a lot more care now, the events I have so far applied and was accepted by as a blogger are:

- 21-29 of April: Fantasy Faire, a Relay for Life event in support of the American Cancer society, so far I have not had one single doubt in participating in this event since all the people in it seem extremely competent, and honourable, and I have no reason to question their commitment to the event and RLF.

- 14-28 of May stars of  Keep Calm and Keep Shopping!  this one is not a charity event but only to promote wonderful SL creators.

- 15-31 of May starts of  World Goth Fair and the WGD Nightstalker Hunt associated with it. These two events are separate but officially sanctioned by the folks at World Goth Day, and will benefit the Sophie Lancaster Foundation. And is being organized by people I know personally, am close to and have absolute confidence in.

These are the only events I am covering as an official blogger, and I have no doubts about their commitment to them. I hope this helps and thanks for listening.

ETA: By the way i would also like to remember my fellow bloggers and readers if they wish to show a few words of support to Veronica Ogleby and her husband Sean Qendra, you can do it on her blog Just Me V.

52 Weeks of Color – Tea Green

Standard

Again another colour for this week on the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge, by Luna Jubilee, this weeks colour was Tea Green and way harder than I though it would be, but I hit the gatcha at {bilo} and after a few tries I finally got the t-shirt in the colour I wanted and a few extra colours to hand out to friends, gatcha repeats are the best random gifts to my friends list.

I´m wearing also the new !lamb mesh hairs which I am so far loving and buying all the 3 new models sure put a dent in my pocket, this whole weekend did tbh so many events is hard to keep up.

This weeks colour challenge came in a bit later also because I spent this morning at the  SwayLand Easter Hunt 2012, where after much silliness of on part and distractions I finally found all 3 hunt gifts the charming bracelet I´m wearing and the awesome Easter themed bench, the lovely lantern also a gift was not included here since it didn´t fit the rest of the theme. so here it is I present you Tea Green for a Holiday inspired set of pics.

…from SL, as I get ready not just for spring but also some summer, The weather hasn´t really warmed up here really but I don´t honestly care, there are way to many good spring/sumer goodies inworld for me not to use.

So I started with this lovely Geometry dress, ran of to The Dressing Room to grab these lovely YS&YS barefeet and damn they where a total bargain and a must for summer with the nasty default avatar feet we get, I also added a new release, then new Maxi Gossamer, Athena bangles that yes, I know you can´t see them very well here, but those bangles have a story I will tell when I blog them latter and yes it´s a lovely story and they will be blogged a lot.

Coming soon…

Standard

This month has been so busy, not just with events in sl but also with new shops sending me blogger packs that I have and will continue to show of, those shops being: Geometry, {bilo}, CoLLisions, 22769 and Dare Designs, this has helped me a lot in blogging since not only do I have more to play with in my pictures, but I also have more variety, and most of it already associated with amazing events I already cover.

The Blogrun of feeds also slowly grows with more entries as I apply the blog to them, and spend more time checking feeds myself.

I keep trying to cover as many events as possible including some hunts like i did this month to The Twisted Hunt, The Steam Hunt and last week and over the next The Home and Garden Market Hunt. I do try and keep up with hunts as best as possible, but as you see it is impossible to covert only 1% of all the ones in the grid.

I´ve been also trying to cover all the pictures in the Luna Jubilee´s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge, and probably doing a few more in the future.

Next month I plan to keep covering my favourite monthly events like COLLABOR88, The Dressing Room, The Dressing Blue, The Gallery Gift Shop, Flux and the new My Attic. But I do have news as it comes to major events upcoming.

First I will start with World Goth Day on the 22nd of May that is having an officially sanctioned event in SL The World Goth Fair 2012 and will also include a hunt The WGD Nightstalker Hunt 2012, I was lucky to be invited by my good friend Axi to be an official blogger for the Fair with other amazing bloggers as: Shadowed Darkfury from SL Freebie Hunters, Sonya Marmurek  from Astalianda and  Rudhmellowen Laguna from Seraphim.

Second i´ve also been accepted as a blogger for Fantasy Faire.

And I am so excited for it, I love doing Fantasy pictures, and I love experimenting and already know how amazing the designers assigned to me are, so I know for sure I will have good things to blog, but it´s a surprise.

Another event I´m anticipating is Keep Calm and Keep Shopping! a smaller and new event I know, but looking extremely promising.

These are a few of the events i can remember atm, for the next few months I´m sure more will come, and i will do my best to keep myself on top of them. Remember people to hit me with news or suggestions, either here or on plurk/twitter.

New event in town

Standard

Just when I thought things would slow down for a bit, they haven´t, to put a nice twist to this busy, busy month in events and shopping a new discounted store opened yesterday, it´s called My Attic @ The Deck with the theme:  Summer Abroad 1955-1960, and all items are marked to 95L.

Not only that but I also received this week a few new blogger packs from {bilo} most of them including a mix of system layers mixed in with mesh to make the perfect pencil skirt, that will fit anyone of the box.

These are just a few of the items I bought for now, more will come due to the amazing quality of the merchants present, for such low prices.

So here I am arriving in town with my luggage ready to set home filled with My Attic goodies to share.

I love The Gallery Gift Shop, it´s one of those events i visit regularly and is becoming one of my favorites, this time i took pics in the actual gallery in front of one of the art pieces hanging on the walls, and every time i see the little notice that they have new things about i rush over and am always surprised to discover new creators, not just for fashion but decor too, So here i am in feathers in a more editorial look.
