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!

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.

Check out the Women Only Hunt!

Hey guys! I recently did the Women Only Hunt, and found lots of cute items as I went to the different stores. What I liked about the hunt was that all (or most anyway) of the stores’ locations were on a numbered hud, and when you clicked a number, it took you to the location, and provided you the hint for the store. Some stores were not on the hud, so I had to look them up via SL search. And there were stores on the hud that did not have a vendor picture on the website, so from those, I got the items where I was already familiar with their work.

Sephora Virtual Artist for Second Life Avatars?

I was looking at Facebook, and I found this website where Gina Mei tries the Sephora app that lets you apply lipstick to your face. Well, a picture of your face that is. I downloaded it, but it didn’t work on my Android for some reason. I then found further down in Gina’s blog post the link to Sephora Virtual Artist, and was able to upload my photo.

Two tips to keep in mind:

1. The site seems to favor JPEGs over PNG files, so keep that in mind when taking pictures, and
2. Try to have a natural nude lip (no lipstick on the skin). I first tried to use this with a slightly tinted lipstick on, and I could not get the SVA lipstick to apply properly to my lips. It was a LOT easier once I took it off.

Ghee brings Nikita to The Instruments

Even though I have yet to see snow in my neck of the RL woods, it’s definitely winter! Sometimes we may feel not as glamorous due to all of the bulky clothes that we have to wear. But Ghee has a solution for that – get glammed with Nikita!

Besides the Nikita dress, you can complete the ensemble with a matching fur shawl and hat. You can also get fur booties (for Slink feet) to go along with the dress – we wouldn’t want your feet to get cold now do we?

There are 6 different colors to the Nikita dress, and at first you may not be able to see the colors, depending on what windlight you are using. They are all lovely winter shades. I am wearing Amethyst Ice. Currently, you can get Nikita at The Instruments until January 6th. If you miss out, you can always check back at the main store later to pick it up.

The Boho Couture Fair ends soon

The fourth Boho Culture Fair ends on November 2nd. So if you haven’t been yet, now would be a good time to check it out. I think many are focused on celebrating Halloween ^^

Today I am wearing Ghee‘s clothing, which can be found at the Boho Couture Fair.

I normally don’t wear green, but since the Foxy Lady Madylin skirt had green flowers, I decided to wear green tights as well. Ghee has a variety of colors, all at their main store. Make sure you demo so you can decide the best way to wear Ghee according to your tastes.

Look of the Day – 10.17

Hey guys!  Today my look is inspired by Indyra. Indyra recently came out with the Amory Mix & Match Cocktail Set with leather mini dresses, cashmere scarves & handbags in a variety of colors.

I chose to wear the black mini dress with a red scarf and the ruby colored bag. Because I chose to wear black boots, I wanted to give a pop of color. I really like this lipstick that I got from Deesses a while back during a hunt – it too helps give my overall look  some accented color. You can tell that I’ve been in the mood to feature short hair as of late. This hair comes from Tableau Vivant.

This month’s fashion recap at Ghee

Hey – I’m back guys! I got my computer earlier today, and everything seems to be in tip-top shape. Now, on to the fashion!

Ghee has had a lot of nice items this month that I did not get a chance to tell you about.

Ghee - second Life

On the left I am wearing the Ghee Scheherazade top and pants that was recently at the Instruments. I looked up the name “Scheherazade” and according to Wikipedia, she was legendary Arabic queen and the storyteller of One Thousand and One Nights.
I have on the shoes as well, and you will need Slink mid foot in order to wear them.

The Deidre dress, shoes, and necklace in burgundy is ideal if you want a classic vintage look. Deidre comes in 5 colors, and you can also color change the ribbon on the necklace to go with your dress. You can see that I am wearing a bracelet – that is actually the necklace resized. You can try that with just about any necklace that is able to be modified.

Since both of these creations were at events that recently ended, they should be at the mainstore shortly if they are not there already. Here is your chance to pick them up if you missed them this month!

Happy shopping!

Hot and humid days can be fun

Have you ever been outside when it’s hot and humid outside? It can be pretty down right disgusting – you can cut the humidity with a knife sometimes. And I have noticed for the past several years, places of business have cut down on the amount of air conditioning that they use. Even on mass transportation they have cut down, which to me is not a good idea when hundreds of people use it daily.

 


I decided to head down to Ghee because they have a new VIP gift out. Since it was nice (and humid) outside, I decided to take a picture near the fountain that is located near the store. Then, I felt some wetness on my arm. Don’t tell me it’s about to rain….and I don’t have an umbrella 😦
The rain did provide some relief to the heat, but I still wasn’t satisfied. Figuring that I would be wet anyway, I decided to stick arms and face into the water. Don’t worry about me – Bea and Warm assured me that the water is clean…I won’t drink from it just in case *winks*

 


Ghee has a few older group gifts at the store. Last time they had a group gift, I wore this lovely dress out to the beach. So you may want to stop by just in case you missed out on some of the gifts ^^

Just Me

Hey guys…I have been feeling pretty bleh lately. The cold weather in real life  has really affected my mood…even made me want to dress in mufti-layered clothing and lounge around Second Life.

feel_001

My shades look kinda funky in that photo…didn’t notice it until much later. Ah well 😛 I decided to do a bit of shopping around to see what’s new and exciting.

Elikatira is having a massive hair sale now – all hairs will be discontinued after the sale ends on the 23rd. So of course I had to get some new hair, as well as more colors for some of the ones that I already had before. Another store that is having a sale is Kyoot – sadly, Kyoot will be closing its doors very soon (I heard the sale will end at the beginning of February), so run on down! Khitt and I were talking about how long the store has been around – I have things from 2010, and I think she has even older stuff. Okay – all of the closing has me down again..let’s talk about newer stuff.

Ikon has a new VIP group gift for the month of February. Even though I tend to wear mine from Exodi, I am always looking to find my next new favorite pair of eyes. Also, Al Vulo has a new skin out at TDR Fusion. I wanted to try the Honey tone, but they didn’t have demos there or even at their main store (yes, I went to look haha). So I got my usual sunkissed tone.

Until next time guys…which will probably be soon! ^^
