Creative Forum @ Indie Teepee with Trouble Dethly and Delicate Flower

Hey guys! I have 2 topics of interest today. First, I wanted to share with you all my new profile picture! I normally change it once a season, but I hadn’t changed my last photo since October. So, here it is!

Moni-Summer-2016_01111web3
Hair: =DeLa* “Sahara” Browns  (@ Uber)

Skin:Glam Affair – Luna skin – Jamaica
Makeup: [mock] Bonjour Matte Lipstick [Turkish Rose]
[mock] Glitter Pop Eshadow in Jeweled Lake
Jewelry: Chop Zuey: The Dirty Shepherdess Necklace 
Earthstones: EarthStones The Diamond Stud – Pear/Gold
Top (also got the pants but not seen): Hucci Yebil Top – Midnight (@ Uber)

 

The second (and much longer) topic I would like to talk about is about Indie Teepee. One of my friends informed me that there was a discussion panel at Indie Teepee featuring Delicate Flower & Trouble Dethly on July 12th at noon SLT. I have had the pleasure of meeting Trouble before, and I have seen Delicate around the grid and on Plurk. So, I thought it would be interesting to head on over to see what was happening.

I was not sure on what Indie Teepee was about. We have so many events that come up, and we run to shop and purchase items. But many of us do not take the time as to why the event was created. I grabbed this from Scarlet Schadenfreude (evelynscarlet)’s picks, who is the Founder / Creative Director of Indie Teepee.

“Just as Second Life is a home to so many people from all walks of life, Indie Teepee aims to be the roof under which these same people may discover, enjoy and appreciate the diversity and creativity that could only previously be experienced in the real world.

Indie Teepee brings people together through their love of song and art – breaking down barriers and providing a haven for music genres like indie, alternative, rock, electronic dance music and hiphop. This year, we take it a step further to include theatre performances, photography exhibitions, a feature-length machinima and a creative forum.

The success of our inaugural event in 2015 has inspired us to make sure that 2016’s Indie Teepee is a far more welcoming and cosier dwelling for everyone. In this home, there are no strangers, just friends you haven’t met yet.”

According to the moderator, Chris (nathanaelwest), today we would hear from both
Trouble Memphis Dethly (trouble.dethly) and Delicate T. Flower (awylder1) on their day-to-day lives & motivations for their creative outlets. Trouble is the founder of Eclipse Magazine, and Del is the co-owner of Seraphim (Heidi Halberstadt is the other co-owner).

What I did was to attempt to summarize what was said (on voice) during the hour. I tried to keep it as accurate as possible.

Are Perceptions Reality: How people perceive us in Second Life

I read a blog post by Zivaah Darling several days ago. She talked about how some people perceived her in Second Life. You can read about it here. She then asked proposed this question:

Now the major question is; what would you do?

Change your personality to become friends or seek people more open to accept you the way you are?

Now, this reminds me of a RP post I did a while back (before I came to SL) entitled “Are Perceptions Reality?” And the take home message was yes, it can be. If people perceive you a certain way, it can significantly affect you and your lifestyle.

Clearance Sale at Ghee!

If you guys want fashionable clothing at a great price, just check out the big sale at Ghee! Just found out about this now, and wanted to share with you all.

 

Ghee Retirement Stock Clearance Sale
According to the notice that was sent:

“Ghee is preparing to remodel the store, and we’re having a huge stock clearance sale in preparation – about half our stock is on sale with massive reductions – many items 100L, 75L, 50L or 25L. Once the sale ends, they will be retired and eventually put on  marketplace at their normal prices, so grab these bargains while you can. Some may never be seen again! Look for the rotating sale signs all over the store.”

LaVian brings fashionistas together

Hey guys! I hope you have been checking out the SL13B celebrations! Most of the events are over, but there are plenty of things to see. You can check here, here,  and here to see where you can go.

On Sunday, I had the opportunity to see the owner of LaVian, Samantha S Jones, speak at the SL13B Auditorium with the hostess Saffia Widdershins. It was interesting to learn that Samantha went from participating in culinary arts in real life to becoming a designer on a virtual platform. My friend Khitt also was in attendance, and we both enjoyed the opportunity to hear from a prominent SL designer. The audience was even treated with a  mini fashion show, and a gift bag of items from the Spring 2016 collection.

What was coincidental about this was that two weeks ago, Khitt and I had taken pictures with us wearing LaVian dresses. Since I am slow, it took me a while to edit the photo. But now I see I was just waiting for the right opportunity ^^

Bloggers’ Office Hours Today: 1 – 5 PM SLT

***Update – 6/27: If you would like to be informed of when we have another session, just go to the location in this post and hit the bloggers’ office hours subscriber. It will help me get a better idea as to how many people are interested in something like this. Our first session went well, people came in one at a time, and I had very nice conversations with each person.

Hey guys! Ever since the meetup that I hosted back in October took place, it was always my intention to continue gathering with other bloggers to talk about issues that we may experience. Unfortunately, lots of things happened after that meeting, and eventually my attention got pulled in other directions. After speaking with a few people this weekend, I came up with a new format on how to go about doing these meetings.

bloggers' office hours - second life

We are all very busy people, and perhaps a formal 2 out of 24 hours gathering is a lot to commit to. However, if we were to extend the hours and keep the topic(s) of discussion flexible…people can drop in and out as they need to.
