Home & Garden Expo 2014

2014 Home and Garden Expo

Announcing the 7th Annual Home and Garden Expo

Home and Garden Expo 2014, benefitting RFL of SL, opens on September 16, and runs through the 28th. Spread over nine sims, HGE features the finest in Second Life Home and Garden design product and creator tools. Over 85 participating creators have joined HGE, one of the first mega-events of the 2015 Relay For Life fundraising drive in Second Life.

Relay For Life of Second Life is in its tenth season, as Second Life residents across the grid band together to raise funds for Relay For Life and the American Cancer Society. The funds raised go to finance cancer research. During the 2014 season, RFL of SL broke the $415,000.00 USD mark for total funds raised.

This year’s HGE is supported by nine Platinum Sponsors and eight Gold Sponsors. This year’s event also includes, for the first time, a comprehensive shopping guide listing all donation items, new releases, hunt, raffle and gatcha items. New rules and a new layout for HGE reduces lag and provides ample display space for each of the participants’ products.

Hair Fair 2013

It’s that time of year again! Yes, Hair Fair 2013 starts tomorrow! Hair Fair is an event that raises money for the charity Wigs for Kids. Every hair at the event, has a minimum of 15% going to Wigs for kids. On the last day of Hair Fair is Bandana Day, where we remove our hair to show we care, in support of those that have lost hair, or suffer from hair loss. Every year people submit their bandanas they have made using the kits that were provided and are sold for 50L each (trans) on all 4 sims for the duration of the event. More information can be found on the official Hair Fair site.

I have included a sample, a teaser if you will, of a small selection of hairs that are available at Hair Fair this year.

Fantasy Faire 2013

One of the greatest things about Fantasy Faire is seeing all the amazing environs created to help our enjoyment of a truly wonderful event! I did my best on taking a shot of each sim that I felt best represented the overall feel of the sim. Fantasy Faire opens at noon on April 20th.

The Liaison Collaborative-The Garden

The Garden

The Garden opens tomorrow, the 15th, with many beautiful items to create the perfect English garden setting. One thing I’m loving about The Liaison Collaborative is the fact that every other month the focus is on home and garden creators. I have always been a huge fan of home and garden items, but it’s only been the past year since the introduction of mesh, that it (home and garden designs) have really taken off, and become sought after. Now you are able to live on your 512 plot and have it impeccably decorated without compromising quality for low prim counts. Happy decorating!

Miss Metaverse Pageantry

I had the honor of representing Russia in the Miss Metaverse Pageantry. While I did not win the pageant, I still came out on top, because of all the wonderful people I had the pleasure of meeting through this experience. I am presenting to you my looks for the pageant and a VERY special thanks goes out to Ayla Stradling for being there and helping me out. Also I would love to thank my sponsors for my looks: Giz Seorn of Gizza, June Dion and Tori Heart of Bare Rose, and Natzuka Miliandrovic of FPC. They all believed in me and are such lovely people to have donated their creations to my entry in the pageant. The 2 outfits from FPC and Bare Rose will be released in the near future! Thank you all!

Miss Vintage SL 2013

I had the pleasure of participating in the Miss Vintage SL 2013 pageant hosted by the Chicago 1920s sim. Competing against many lovely and accomplished women, I was stunned to find out that I was chosen as Miss Vintage SL 2013. I wanted to share with you all the day and evening looks I had put together that reflect my love of vintage and especially the 1940s era. I also want to thank everyone involved in the event, and to congratulate each contestant as I believe we all did an amazing job representing times past.
