Penumbra

Every now and then I take a left turn in Second Life and am reminded of a place I knew nothing about - in this case the Penumbra Fashion Week, part of a vast and sprawling empire of modeling, pageants, and fashion shows which dot the grid. It seems like usually a modelling school will have associated pageants and events which draw clothing stores and bring them both publicity and sales. In this case, there appear to be a few different events and a sales area out front, with models taking pictures and publishing them on FLickr. The clothing adheres available adheres much more closely to offline fashions, and the outre end of that, replete with odd pleats, puffy bits, and layers where one wouldn't expect them. It's also strikingly difficult to find a landmark to the sim, though I was able to find information about a number of events at their website, in addition to some stills from fashion walks. The vast number of models in Second Life are eight heads tall or more, a sliver of the population offline but readily available with a judicious use of sliders. I find the whole phenomena of fashion shows in a virtual environment completely fascinating, though it's but rarely that I find myself intersecting with it.

The interesting thing is that unlike offline - where the clothing wouldn't be available to the average person, both because it's shaped for a stark minority of body types and due to cost - here anyone with a few Linden can pick things up, and most of them will modify themselves easily for my much shorter, much rounder form. My Second Life shape is equally unusual, being a nearly perfect hourglass, but it's a different unusual shape from the tall and thin model ideal, and a different size again from the wide hipped set which is also inspired by modelling, but by the alternative, thigh gap standard of thinness. Second Life is a sort of perfect place to express physical cultural values, and so it's unsurprising that paleness, smooth hair, thinness, and various markers of class or money predominate. Unlike offline they are in the majority, however, which shifts the balance of power and leads people to seek social clout in a wide variety of ways rendered all the more transparent by how malleable they are. One of these is the Fashion Show, using the right gestures at the right times, having the right shape and accessories, and typing out the appropriate language to combine humility and gratitude to impress the judges. Another is the Blog, typing out words of analysis and snapping pictures, hoping people will pay attention.

A CLOCKWORK SPIRAL – An event benefiting the NATIONAL KIDNEY FOUNDATION

00000000000000000000000000000000000

123 Welcome to "A CLOCKWORK SPIRAL" - an Steampunk themed event in SL with proceeds going to The National Kidney Foundation. Designers have set their items to 50% or 100% donations, each item you purchase will specify how much of the proceeds will be donated. If you love Steampunk or just want to donate to a great cause, then you need to go visit this amazing event, not to mention how the event has been decorated, you are going to just love this place! I have been so eager to start blogging this event, ever since I was accepted to be an official blogger, I was just so excited & couldn`t wait for it to open. Leave it me, I ended up getting a terrible cold & right before opening day, I caught it, & I`m so happy to say that I`m not completely over it yet, I am able to start getting to work on these post. I absolutely LOVED putting this look together. From the moment I first saw this outfit, "Steamcraft" from DEATH ROCKER BETTER CROCKER or as you many of you know her - DRBC,  I fell in love with it.  You know if I see a ton of bloggers blogging something, I`ll usually pass it by & look for something else, but this one, I just had to, didn`t matter how many times I seen it blogged, lol. The outfit comes with top, skirt, & pentacle necklace as well as a fitted mesh option :). ROAWENWOOD made these awesome "Majesty Boots" for the event that I thought were perfect for the look I wanted..I think you`ll agree once you see them :) Also from this event, 22769 CASUAL COUTURE once again blows us away with their mesh creations, from steam powered ottomans to lamps, hatstands, rugs, tables & more, every item is amazing as always. In fact, after opening this blog pack, I said to myself, omg, I`m so happy this is one of my sponsors, I just love blogging for them, every single release is incredible! WTG guys, as always, amazing work :) A few more creators to mention from ACS EVENT, one that we all know by now for her amazing nails, ZOZ -created for ACS,  Lona Silver Mesh Nails with 9 stunning colors with diamond accents. CPD made this Gyroscope animated walking stick, and also the Homonculus in the glass bell. I am just loving these items! You`ll also see a ceiling light "Steam Lamp" in a few of the pics, you can grab this from NACHT also at ACS. [LCKY] HAIR just released this super sexy hairdo, "Libby". I usually always use colors for her hair, because I love her vibrant pastels, but this time I chose the black & so glad I did, just check out how smooth & shiny her textures are....think I`ll be wearing more black from this creator ;) At THE GACHA MANIA, Deesses Skins has more beautiful skins to be won, this round she has 2 different skins available. I`m wearing "Lucia" in Ice Frappe Tone. Isn`t she lovely?! A few of the items I`ve had in my collection & I`ll list them at the end in credits, for now, I hope you enjoy the post & make sure you head on over to A CLOCKWORK SPIRAL & show your support to the designers & more importantly The National Kidney Foundation.  oh yeh, PSSTTT.....word is that after only 4 days, the event has already raised over $1200.00 to be donated to the foundation, how cool is that?!!

Can You Tell I`m excited? ;)

HAPPY SHOPPING LADIES!
