Some Thoughts on Commitment

Hey guys! This has been a busy month for me. Yesterday The Fashion Loft had its first fashion show, and it was a success. Considering the fact that there were several events before and after our show, I was happy to see that we had at max just under 40 people at the sim. Since I got a lot of positive feedback from the last time I shared my thoughts, I thought I would share my sentiments on my recent experience.

2017 Spoonful of Sugar Event

The Spoonful of Sugar event is back for another year! Ran by Ever Courtois and Angelique Wickentower, the proceeds from SoS goes to Doctors Without Borders/ Medicins Sans Frontieres.

“MSF provides assistance to populations in distress, to victims of natural or man-made disasters, and to victims of armed conflict. They do so irrespective of race, religion, creed, or political convictions.”

The event started on March 18, and ends on April 1. If you are unable to make it inworld to participate, you can always make a donation to the charity here. Payment can be made using Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover card. I didn’t see anything like PayPal listed as a payment option. For more information about the event, you can visit the website.

Chop Zuey is one of the many stores participating in this event.

Luxe Box January 2017 Reveal

Hey guys – hope everyone is enjoying the new year! I have decided to do another Luxe Box reveal & review. The first one I did was in June, so things have changed a little since then. Now you can join the group on the 15th of the month for 3000L. This comes in handy because if you really want an item (or more) after you see what is in the subscription for the month, you can still get it.

The end of standard sizes? What this means for clothing in Second Life

There has been a growing number of stores as of late who are opting to only make clothing for specific mesh bodies (e.g. Belleza, Maitreya, Slink), and discontinuing standard sizing. According to a few social media outlets, the reasons why designers are opting to discontinue making standard size clothing are:

– Designers are spending more time rigging for various bodies than actual creation of items.

– Sales have not significantly decreased for those opting to go for specific fitmesh sizes.

– Customers want to shop at stores that have clothing specifically fitted to their body.

Some designers are opting to take it one step further and only focus on making clothing for the current most popular body. According to the 2016 survey conducted by meshbodyaddicts.com, 62.5% of the female residents surveyed currently wear the Maitreya Lara body. Even if you add up the number of people who wear other mesh bodies, they still pale in comparison to the Maitreya Lara mesh body. For this reason, some designers feel like this is enough to not only discontinue standard sizes, but to limit their creations to only one fitmesh size.
