Sound of silver

I was being naughty, and used my wind light settings, instead of midnight settings, for the location. I think the snow looks great as a backdrop for a shoot, though. I recommend visiting Arctica Dreams By Rebeca Bashly (SLurl). It is quite a transcendent experience with the music and the wide fantastic space. Great for thinking.

Content for creators

Just a quick post for content creators. I found myself taking part in the
Sculpt Studio Office Hour (Every Sunday 6 am SLT 2 pm SLT) by the makers of Sculpt Studio and the new Mesh Studio (Website) at Tech Expo (Website) (SLurl), an island for classes and information for SL content creators. Interesting information, about the tools, and advice for creating, can also be found in the group Sweet sculpties (Group).

I am very new to sculpting, so I am only offering you these links to where to find the information. I have done some very simple sculpts on Rokuro (Website), but am not yet familiar with more advanced tools. You can find classes for builders in other groups as well. I have found Builders Brewery (Group) and Happy Hippsters (Group) very useful. They also have free materials and building sandboxes.

I was just gonna pop in

I was just gonna pop in at Lisp Bazaar (SLurl) for the 50l Fridays on my way to take pictures for my post, but then I saw they had a market set up with a lot of amazing stuff for just 10 lindens and I wanted a quick look around at the store itself and well I am still there and want to take everything home with me, lol.
So I just ended up taking my picture while there. The sofa on the left is called Boho and is one of the 10l items they have scattered indoors as well. On the table in the middle I found a craft basket for 45l and I am a huge crafting fanatic, so of course I had to get it. Fans of old horror and those of you who spend time with or are geeks probably know Lovecraft.. Well Lisp has an entire room with dark and mysterious stuff that is just made of awesome and I had to get a chair with a creature on it that reminds one of Cthulhu. I might go back for the one with a Raven (E.A.Poe anyone?) on it. Do you ever play the game "who would you wanna be if you weren't you?" Well I would so wanna be the person who makes this stuff. The store is visually so gorgeous, I want to move in.

Mirror mirror on the wall

Our talented contributor Viviana Avedon, "Vivi" is back with this amazing photo story, where she shows off her great fashion sense as well as her building skills. Vivi took the photographs and did the styling and modeling as well. Enjoy!

Vivi gets ready to go out. Brushing her hair and thinking about what to wear.
Vivi walks to her magic mirror and looks deeply into it
She thinks about an outfit for the evening and watches it appear. A pink top maybe?
Maybe this coral top would be better?
I could wear blue
Or a light lemon
I think I will wear this one during the day
And tonight I will wear this sexy black
Vivi did a photo shoot of one of her favorite outfits in a Movie type stage setup and using "Magic Mirror" that she created herself.

Tinies make a Big Glamorous Splash

Every year designers from The Raglan Shire gather to show their latest in winter gear and haute couture collections at the Raglan Fashion Show.

Designer Dagmar Klaar  built this amazing set for the fashion show that gathered over 180 000 linden dollars for the Shire. The set has so many gorgeous details and awesome building tricks, I could spend ages looking around. It was made for just this event but luckily Da Frog tp'd me in before it was burned down in a very fun tiny tradition. ;)

Here is an amazing collection of pictures taken from the event by the participants. To see what the tinies are upto, take a look at their event calendar.

Here are some shots I got after the event was over and we were having a last look at the beautiful surroundings.
