Fashion for Life 2016 – now open!

Hey guys! If you did not already know, the 2016 Fashion for Life sims are now open and ready for you to shop ’til you drop!

One thing that I liked about this year’s Fashion for Life is the guidebook that has been provided for us. It’s a quick way of seeing what brands are participating at Fashion for Life, the FFL committee, photos of each themed sim along with their SLurls, and schedules of music performances and fashion shows.

There is also the treasure hunt, the photo contest (entries are due March 17th ), and the auction on March 19th.

Fiction for a Cure

 

Hey guys! Even though the Rhapsody event is now over, I got inspired to do this photo after visiting a photo studio and discovering that they had the stage from Hopscotch there. Since I had bought a dress from Pixicat, I figured, “Why not?” I have not seen the items in the stores yet, but you can always ask the creators about them!

During the Rhapsody event, I found out about a Relay for Life fundraiser called Fiction for a Cure. According to the website:

Second Life—Fiction for a Cure is a Second Life event bringing First Life authors online through events and prizes donated for silent and live auctions 7/11-18. The events and auctions will take place on the American Cancer Society island in Second Life . The events include classes and readings. Fiction for a Cure will culminate in a life auction of books and fiction opportunities on Friday July 18th.

When I went to the place, I took pictures of the various raffles and silent auctions that they had. I think some people will be very happy residents with the prizes that they will get ^^

Fashion for Life 2014

Fashion For Life 2014 Poster

 

Hello everyone! Can you believe it’s that time of year again where talented designers come together and donate some of their best items for a good cause? If you are thinking of Fashion for Life, you are right on the money. Fashion For Life runs from June 7th – June 20th across 10 sims. The theme this year is Wanderlust – a reflection of Relay For Life’s theme Journey To A Promise. Over the 10 sims, you will find 150 stores, gacha areas and a region wide passport game.


For those who are not familiar with what Fashion for Life is, here is an except from the FFL website:

Fashion For Life is an event supporting Second Life’s Relay For Life campaign to raise funds for the American Cancer Society.  It will run from June 7th through June 20th from midnight to midnight.  All Fashion For Life events will happen during that time period…..Our mission is to maximize donations to the American Cancer Society via the SL Relay for Life while creating a great sales environment for in-world avatar content (including lowered lag). Our goal is provide complete transparency in financial and operational actions to all residents. And to have fun doing this!

Efforts and funds committed to FFL go to support American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life.  We are entirely volunteer driven and 100% of the funds raised are presented as a charitable donation to ACS from the residents of Second Life.

 

Are you a Very Important Person?

Who hates lag while shopping? I think we can all hold our hands up and agree that lag can be daunting during a popular event. However, at Fashion for Life if you are willing to donate 2500L at this vendor, you can get in as early as tomorrow with all the other VIPs. Only 100 will be allowed access, so donate today so you can get in before everyone else!

I want to show you a teaser of what is to come at Fashion for Life – a 2-piece  outfit perfect for summer time with floral prints.

Leilani comes with a system layer halter top and a mesh skirt bottom. The skirt has a texture change HUD, so you have the ability to choose from white (shown), emerald, blue, chocolate, pink, and purple.

The Sissela skin is a Nordic/Scandinavian female skin, and has 4 different skins: skin without freckles and cleavage/no cleavage option, and skin with freckles and cleavage/no cleavage option. It comes with a shape as well, but it is not shown here. Sissela also comes with the following appliers:

– SLINK hands applier

The Slink hands are visible in the photo, and although I have on the feet as well, it is not readily visible in the photo.

Last, but certainly not least, is the Kippar hair from Damselfly. Each hair color has a HUD with up to 20 different shades of color. This is a hair style that can easily worn for causal outings, or something more formal.

Remember, these designs can only be found on the Fashion for Life sims.

Fantasy Faire 2013 – Second Life

f34c0249a384aab0d378d34a86bdc41cFantasy Faire 2013

Hey everyone! The Fantasy Faire is here, so get ready for a spectacular magical event in Second Life! Last year, I had fun visiting the sims, as well as blogging the event. It is a pleasure to show you all a preview of what the talented designers came up with this year to help fundraise for Relay for Life and the fight against cancer.

For those who are not familiar with Fantasy Faire, here is an excerpt from the official website:

“Celebrating its fifth year, Fantasy Faire 2013 is the largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts, roleplayers and performers in the virtual world. From Saturday April 20 to Sunday April 28, treat yourself to nine days of shopping, live music concerts, auctions, hunts and roleplaying as thousands of Second Life residents and creators come together to support the American Cancer Society’s vision of a world without cancer.”

The first item I have for you all are the Bottle Shard Necklaces from [ni.Ju], by Vitani Jun. [ni.Ju] specializes in accessories, piercings, and make-up or tattoos that are commonly influenced by fantasy, gothic lolita, androgyny, and bright colors.

                                                                                                                             necklace_014        necklace_013

Colors Orange & Ultraviolet are for RFL

[ni.Ju] has other colors, also available at Fantasy Faire. There are necklaces for men and women separately, although I could see myself wearing the men’s necklace if I needed it in a larger size.

These items can be found at Titans Hollow . Stay tuned for more coverage on Fantasy Faire 2013. Until then, happy shopping! So far, Fantasy Faire 2013 has raised over 2,014,418  L$ in 25 hours – that is AMAZING!.

Pink Ribbon Fair for RFL

Hey guys!  I know how much you like to shop, especially when it’s for a good cause! So I wanted to share with you some info about the Pink Ribbon Fair that is currently taking place now. According to the website dedicated to this event,

“Flair For Events presents the Pink Ribbon Fair (PRF) in collaboation with RFL of SL. This charity event for breast cancer starts August 4th to 25th (4 weeks) ! All the pink exclusives items found on the event sim are 100% donation to American Cancer Society.”

For something as important as breast cancer, I haven’t seen a whole lot of publicity regarding this event. If it wasn’t for a merchant sending a notecard via subscribo about their items for the event, I probably would had overlooked it.

I have recently taken notice of Mon Cheri, especially their lingerie. Maybe I will show you some things that I like in another post ^^  But for now, this bikini is one of the donation items the store has at the fair.

Chop Zuey has a cute bangles set also up for donations at the fair. I never really thought of myself as pretty in pink, but I am pleased at how everything came out – the outfit, the photos, etc.

Second Life Home & Garden Expo 2012

Lately, whenever I go shopping in RL, I take pictures of items that I like, and would possibly buy if I had the money to do so. Also, it comes in handy when you want to make a purchase – all the details are in the picture. 🙂 I decided to take that concept into Second Life, so I took photos of items that I liked at the Home & Garden Expo. According to the website,

“… 5th Annual Home & Garden Expo benefitting Relay For Life of Second Life, a fundraising campaign for the American Cancer Society.  This year’s Expo will open on May 19th at 6am SLT, and remain open 24 hours each day until it closes on May 28th at 10pm SLT . This year’s extravaganza will span THIRTEEN sims, so we’ve added more space to make it the best and biggest Expo, of it’s kind in SL, ever!”

Shopping for charity – always a good thing 😀

  

One of the first things that caught my eye was this office workspace by Thistle Homes. It’s colorful, and makes good usage of primary colors without looking too elementary. If the color scheme of my house went with this, I could definitely see myself making some room to include this workspace.

SL Fantasy Faire 2012

A Benefit for Relay for Life
The Story Starts Now… With You!

Hello everyone! I am happy to announce that the Fantasy Faire 2012 event for Relay for Life will be starting tomorrow! I will show you a few goodies that you can get at the event, so you can start planning on what to get. You know how lag is at these events, so it’s good to have some sort of idea of how the events are set up beforehand. But first, what IS the Fantasy Faire? This is straight from the press release of the event, which I think explains nicely:

“From Saturday April 21 to Sunday April 29, 2012,  thousands of Second Life residents and creators will come together to support the American Cancer Society‘s vision of a world without cancer.  Nine Second Life sims will be transformed into the Fairelands, a fantasy continent created to host Fantasy Faire 2012, to benefit Relay for Life of Second Life (RFL of SL).

Fantasy Faire 2012 is the largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts, roleplayers and performers in the virtual world.  Nine days of shopping, live music concerts, auctions, hunts and roleplaying to benefit Relay for Life and the fight against cancer.  Avatars, clothing, furnishings, gadgets, goodies and exclusive items are available from more than 130 of SL’s  top  Fantasy Creators, spread across nine stunning sims designed by some of the visionary artists behind many of the hottest spots on the SL destination guide.

The Fantasy Faire 2012 is made possible by the generous support of Sim and Event Sponsors: Arcanum, Booshies, Epic Toy Factory, Fallen Gods Inc., NeoStreams, Rustica, –= Solarium =–, The Looking Glass, T R I D E N T, and Vaengi Wings.”

On the Fantasy Faire website, they have a list of designers that will be on each sim, and each sim has its own theme. For instance, look at the description of this sim:

* Devil’s Locket (by Lauren Thibaud/ Piedras Chama/ Nonna Hedges) – a small chain of islands that earned its name not only for the treacherous navigation of its waters and the amazing, but explosive, firegems that were mined from its volcanic depths”

Wow – doesn’t that give you shivers? I want to go just to see what that would look like! But let me not get ahead of myself…it’s time to show you the goodies, as promised.

The first thing I will show you is Luxury in Diamond, from ~*~Fantasia~*~ . According to the designer, Dream Resistance, Luxury is inspired by the first district from the Hunger Games. If you didn’t know already, I love this top – it covers just enough so you can show your body off without being too obvious.  Combined with the collar, it makes for one decorative top.  Hmm…I’m not sure where the face implant that lined the brow went – I think it got detached somewhere between photos.

The ankh earrings, bracelets, and the belly chain are from Tekeli-li, who is also at the Fantasy Faire. Can I tell you a secret? The belly chain is really a necklace – I just resized it so I could wear it lower *winks*

You can find ~*~Fantasia~*~ at the Shadow’s Claw sim, and Tekeli-li!  at The Tides sim.

Fantasy Faire is also having a hunt as part of the festivities. Dagmar Haiku of  Spessart made this cool skybox for it. I love the colors of the skybox – check it out:

Two distinct themes, joined together by stairs. This would be a cool backdrop for some beautiful photography, or if you wanted a place to hang with some of your closest friends – just add some furniture and you’re good to go!

Stay tuned for more previews of Fantasy Faire!
