Kimono, Spirits, and Masks, o my!

So in case it is not clear, I’m a big fan of Asian design tropes.

And I’m providing a link to the ongoing little Spirit Fest (Asian horror) with a lot of nice shopping offers and perhaps other surprises.  UBUME x ORIGAMI

An inspiring build for taking pictures as well.

Bustin’ makes me feel good…

When there’s something strange, in your neighborhood… who ya gonna call?

Loved the new Ghostbusters 2016 movie. Intelligent. Funny. Sassy. With genuine femme comedy.

Hair Fair in full swing and a delight

So Hair Fair is better than ever. Why?

Colors. Shapes. Exotics. Broader range of Designs. Makers that are new to me! Some veteran makers doing NEW styles and colors!

It is also a well designed sim event. Now that Relay RFL2016 draws down, it is worth exploring the sims here. There are three sims of hair, two sims of ‘cam shopping’ and if you belong to the Hair Fair group, you can find demos of all makers in the past notices if you get on it right away.

I’ve already found many more gifts, new hair styles, and pleasant surprises than I recall from the past couple of years. Some of the gifts are very nice.

Oh, and if you want a snazzy bandana, the charity here is Wigs For Kids. Go grab a stylish head cover. Each sim has a building for low-price bandanas. (I grabbed a sweet turban!)

Lots of the makers are donating proceeds from the sales straight to the charity. It’s a win win win adventure.

What am I wearing? Ask me, or…

Thank you Strawberry, again you have provided a nice little ‘make SL easier’.

The video is worth watching too, because she covers a feature I had forgotten FireStorm designers provide that clipboards the ‘now wearing’ information from appearance dialog box to your system. Use the tiny gear at the bottom left of the ‘wearing’ dialog.

Sweet trick for pasting stuff to Flickr shots! Yay!

Movie Poster meme fm Strawberry!

Strawberry says:

It’s Monday and for this week’s Monday Meme I have decided to bring back my Second Life Movie Poster Challenge that I first did back in 2013. I’ve brought this challenge back today because since 2013, numerous people have asked me to do it again because they enjoyed it so much. Also, talented Second Life filmmaker Glasz DeCuir asked if she could use some of the posters from my previous movie poster challenge in an exhibit that she will be having in Second Life at the end of May. More details about that later in the post if you are interested in getting a chance to have your poster (either from the previous challenge or this one) in her exhibit.

Meme instructions: Create a movie poster for your Second Life Avatar or SLife. You can base it off an original movie poster or think of a completely new idea of your own! Please be careful of copyright issues and try not to use copyrighted elements in your work. Remember to share a link to your poster in the comments and my Blog Memes Flickr Group. You don’t have to have a blog to do this challenge, you can share your image on any social platform you prefer.

I’m a big fan of movie posters. They are often more clever and true than the trailers and other artful devices to get you interested in a film.

I received good responses to the poster I did in 2013 for this meme, so I’m actually going to do research this time to get a nice poster idea.

I may do another based on the black and white poster for ‘Manhattan’. However, I wanted to do something with mirrors, and recently visited the Looking Glass sim for inspirations. So some credit due to Marcus Inkpen.
