Wicca’s Wardrobe for K.I.D.S. – Through the eyes of a child

13783588063_cd9a9a4f67_o(Picture & Model: Sazzy Nirpaw)

Through the eyes of a child

Sweet innocent child with your open eyes.
You’ve seen us for who we really are.
And I know that there’ll be tomorrow.
So that hope can have it’s glory day.
And I wish that this world would embrace you
from magic stars and mystery.
My open heart …

I know you, I’ve seen your face before
you brought me to this open door
afraid to walk through.
Please take my hand.

I know that there will be tomorrow.
So that hope can have it’s glory day?
And I wish that this world embrace you
from magic stars and mystery.
My open heart …

I see where we’ll go from here.
‘Cause love doesn’t break
with the right amount of care
in your hands is whom you’ve choosen to be.
Life is a freedom.
Now go out there and be free.

Why did we make it so hard, this life is so complicated
until we see it through the eyes of a child.
Why did we make it so hard, this life is so complicated
until we see it through the eyes of a child.
Why did we make it so hard, this life is so complicated
until we see it through the eyes of a child.
Why did we make it so hard, this life is so complicated
until we see it through the eyes of a child.

 Fashion for K.I.D.S.  is a week-long charity event which will take place from April 14th to April 21st, 2014. that will help to feed the bodies and minds of young children. The two Miss Virtual World 2014 Candidates, Sienna Bellios and Shelby Matfield will collaborate in this effort , and raises funds for K.I.D.S., a children’s charity that aids in the development of children through nourishment and education (literacy). K.I.D.S. (Kids in Distress Situations) donates 97 percent of donations to the children and families they serve. The charity helps many kids in distress situations such as homelessness, low literacy rate, victims of domestic violence, children with serious illness, and military families. More information on this charity can be found at http://www.kidsdonations.org/about_wwa.htm.

During this event, a host of 18+ designers  willing to set up small vendors of their creations – with one creation donating 50% or more to the children’s charity. Since the charity is to aid children, the designers will have an array of bright colors to represent children, and just in time for spring! To cap off this event, we will host a grand fashion show on the BOSL sim, featuring the awesome women of Miss Virtual World 2014! It is our hope that through this colorful, spring fashion event, that we raise a substantial amount of lindens to give to K.I.D.S.

—————————————————————

Each day families all around the world struggle for food, clothing, and shelter. Each day a parent loses their job and with the loss of a job, usually the loss of their home follows. We work hard to make ends meet, rob Peter to pay Paul, struggle to care for our children but the truth is, the vast majority is just one pay check away from poverty. And while as adults we suffer, those who suffer the most are our children. (Sazzy Nirpaw, http://sazzynirpaw.wordpress.com/2014/04/12/through-a-childs-eyes/)

—————————————————————

I really was very happy when Sienna IMed me and asked me, if I would like to participate in that event. I worked or over 10 years in children home for abused and homeless kids and it really touched my heart, when Sienna asked me. All the memories came back, the eyes of the children looking at me, their little hands reaching out for something the would like to have, the sparkling in their eyes for candy if I brought some with me to work…

I was thinking a lot what I could make for such a charity, because I really wanted to have something that has the kids theme in it. The idea of the “Lolliopop Gown” was born. All kids love candy and the idea of a gown made of lollipops just seemed for me the right idea for such a charity ;)

The gown comes with the mesh corset, a mesh skirt, the huge lollipop back-fan, the ribbons and ruffles and some little parts like the hair decoration and the lollipop for the hand. I left all the prim parts modify, so that you can play with them and reattach or resize them to your likings.

I hope you all like the idea, my little candy dream because 100% proceeds of the “Lollipop Gown” will go to the K.I.D.S. charity.

Please help those who cannot help themselves!

A Lovely Shade of Pink - From !Lyrical B!zarre Templates - Also Featuring K-Code - and From Japan Fair: Candy Nail

I would style a handful of designers every day, every hour, because far more than just the artistic people they are, they're also truly beautiful people in their heart and soul, and they share that with everyone in their company. It makes me feel like I'm connected to something far more than "JUST" a business.
I'm blessed. I've noticed that as time passes, those relationships that go far beyond just the work place type of business acquaintance slowly shifts towards a truth that most of these people are now wonderful friends, people I admire, for their clothing and content creation? Yes, Sure. But it's so much more than that.
Lyrical B!zarre Templates owner Lyrical Bizarre aka Loredana works harder and puts so much of her time into her store, and it shows. She's developed the skill to make her own templates. In a world where few know how to manipulate the programs needed to render new mesh forms, her skill adds depth and beauty to collections and designers all over the grid.
If you're a designer and you're looking for a new template to use, something fresh, a new perspective, and you haven't visited her store, it would be a great time to visit. You'll find an array of glorious spring colors, new items, and loads of fun. And you'll meet one of those irreplaceable people who I know will touch your life magically.

This pretty in pink styling comes to you from these outstanding content creators:

Fab Advice – Edition #14

Untitled

********

QUESTION #1:  I am a new resident in SecondLife or a “newb” as I have been called and I would like to know how I can get people to speak to me???  Most that I approach see my rez in date and run for the hills. :( Thank you for this blog.  I’m sexy this early on in the game  ~ thanks to you.

Love Says:  It’s hard being the new girl/guy in most types of places, and Second Life is no different.  Everything is foreign in this world and it will take time to learn the ropes, and meet your friends and family.  My advice is to just explore different sims, join groups you find interest in and be friendly  but respectful :).  If you IM someone and they don’t respond, just move on.  Not everyone is in SL to meet people.  Some come to escape for peace and quiet!   Thank you for your kind words regarding the FabFree Blog – we are glad to help!

Xiu Says:  First, welcome to SL!  I would suggest finding things that you enjoy…such as music, art, books, poetry, education, building etc.  Then look for groups to join that focus on those activities…for example Builder’s Brewery has been around forever and it is a fantastic place to meet people while exploring the amazing plethora of FREE classes they offer.  You can find a directory of their classes, like photography, jewelry making, clothing design etc., right at their landing point.  Join Facebook and start chatting people up there or start following blogs that feature posts about activities and places to see around the grid.  Daniel Voyager, Quan Lavender and Eddi Haskell all have fantastic blogs that feature an amazing array of activities and places to visit on their blogs; you can also friend them on Facebook to help get you started with making connections there. If you’re into photography, there is a HUGE presence and a ton of SL groups you can join on Flickr; where you can meet fellow SLers and establish connections there. I’m not covering dance clubs, though it is a great place to see people, I think there are better places to truly meet people and make friends.  You can also find lots of opportunities, through reading the Linden Labs updates on the SL dashboard, to volunteer for events…where you will be helping others AND making friends!  Good luck and have fun! <3 <3

********

QUESTION #2:  what are some fun and free activities to do in SL?

Love Says:  Almost everything in Second Life is free!  There are of course some things that cost money… like shopping and there are fees to enter a small amount of sims, but many, many fun activities are free!  Freebie shopping of course is one of my favourites, but you can also visit events, attend live shows, visit clubs, go to poetry readings, and open mic nights!  There are also amusement parks and RP sims if you are into that kind of thing!

Xiu Says:  My favorite activities are exploring and sailing…well shopping also, but that isn’t always free lol.  For sailing…look for Sailor’s Cove or Fisher’s Island Yacht Club…both are public places connected to the Bake Sea.  You will be able to find a lot of information on sailing, classes for sailing, racing, and various sailing groups you can join to become more involved with sailing.  You can also get a free starter boat at those locations.  As for exploring…there is the SL Destination Guide where you can find great places to explore; many also have great interactive things to do, at their location, as well.  You can also do a search for Quan Lavender and Eddi Haskell…both individuals have really great SL travel blogs; where you will find so many great places to explore and activities to enjoy!  If you like RP (Role Play), there are TONS of places you can explore and often you will be able to get started for free.  If you’d like to try flying in SL…do a search for airfields…they will often have temp rezzers where you can rez a plane or helicopter and fly around the Blake Sea.  There are also a ton of Art Galleries, Exhibits, Museums, Educational Centers and Live Music venues…use your search option and enter those key words/phrases into it…you’ll be surprised how many places there are to have FREE fun! <3 <3

LoTD – It’s a little, lazy Sunday

Hello fellow humans, or.. beings.  I am having a Lazy Sunday today and put together a little LoTD, hope you enjoy <3

LoTD - It's a little, lazy Sunday

A few event bits in the good old look, including the gorgeous maxi dress from VinCue, one of the offerings at The Seasons Story, it’s available in an array of colours, all bright and breezy but I adore this coral colour, seems cheery!  Also from The Seasons Story is the skin, it’s Amaranth from Essences!  It’s only available in Light Rose but comes with a bunch of brows to choose from and 4 makeups!  This is just one of the four shown.   From another event is the tiara!   It’s from HopScotch and is out at the Fit for a Princess event as a gacha prize.  Soooo pretty on top of my Truth hair, which is yet another event item, this time at Collabor88, a gorgeous braided and wafty number, perfect for pictures, it also comes with an intricate, optional clip (not shown).

LoTD - It's a little, lazy Sunday - Up Close and Personal

Also worn for my look are the extreme wedges from Blah, in Yellow!    They are also available in a bunch of colours, although the colours are only really the straps an inner sole so pretty much you can wear any colour with anything! YAY!   My necklace is an oldie from Olive, but still a cutie <3

New @ Essences

Also in my bid to play catch up from the Skin Fair, I am showing you the four skins from Essences that were released for there, which I assume are now available in store (I couldn’t TP to double check, don’t shoot me!).  There are four faces to choose from, each one in an array of tones and of course, appliers available!

Forest Cafe

Decor post today!

Lots of items from lots of events.

Forest Cafe

This build is from Kuro available at The Home Show and it is themed to be a ” cafe ” but I am sure it can be used for an array of things. I did stick to the cafe vibe though and wanted to make something along the lines of a relaxing coffee shop.

Here are some close-ups of the interior:

And before I forget, The Season’s Story opens tomorrow! This is one of my favorite events and I will be doing lots of posts to cover all the items available – but first up I set up the cute garden set from Sari-Sari at the entrance to my little cafe:

In The Garden

These items are in a gacha and you can go try your luck tomorrow when it opens <3

Today I have more goodies from The Boutique and Poser Pavilion to show you along with a pretty new skin from Wow Skins.  Luna is one of two new skins that can be found at The Skin Fair which comes in four tones with six makeups(each with a choice of cleavage) and also has skin appliers available.  From The Boutique we have cuteness from Coquet with the Selene dress which is available in four series packs which include three color blocking variations in each pack.  I chose blue which was perfect with the gorgeous Butterfly set in Pigeon from Izzie’s that also comes in five other colors.  Then we have new shoes from ieQED that has such a sweet delicate quality to them that I was sure to include a close up of them so you could see what I meant, I mean look at that heel!  They also come in an array of choices and are made for Slink’s High feet so be sure you own the feet if you buy these.  Helping me show off my look are new poses from Mien Poses in the Nouvelle Belle pack, which includes five poses, ten total when you count the mirrors.

Laid Back

While it is still fairly cool in NY, the weather and fashion is definitely warming-up in SL. Spring is most definitely here! With the onset of a new season, there are always mega events all over the grid. This post is made-up of some of my favorite event exclusives this month.


The talented Gyorgyna Larnia of LaGyo, created this AMAZING Miranda mesh bustier, which is adorned with beautiful mesh flowers in contrasting colors. This bustier is also part of her Carmen Miranda inspired 'Miranda Collection', which is available at The Arcade. This collection is made-up of the above bustier in several brilliant colors, earrings that match the same flower on the bustier and also color turbans. Each play is on 50L, so make sure you stop by The Arcade and try your luck at winning one or all of these gorgeous creations!
Sissy Pessoa of Baiastice, created this beautiful and sleek Ivana High Slit Skirt for FaMESHed. This skirt comes in nice array of Spring inspired colors and also has matching marbled top that you will see later in an upcoming post! 


Skin Fair 2014 is still going on strong! While you are at this yearly event, you absolutely must stop by the -Glam Affair- vendor and demo this stunning new called, Romy. Aida Ewing, as always, went all out and created so many unbelievable options for this new skin. Instead of buying full make-up skins, you buy one base skin (in Arctic, America, Europa, Asia, Jamaica, India and Africa skin tones)with the following the options: 
  • 5 cheek styles (on tattoo)
  • 6 eyebrow styles in 8 different shades (on tattoo)
  • 9 freckle and mole styles (on tattoo)
Now, here is where the fun part comes in! You can purchase the following make-ups and facial features to customize and personalize your look. Here are the packs you can purchase:

- Eye shadows - 3 different packages to choose from (all on tattoo)
  • Light Line (6 styles included)
  • Dark Line (6 styles included)
  • Color Line (6 styles included)
- Glosses and Lipsticks (4 different packages to choose from )
  • 7 yummy styles of gloss (on tattoo)
  • Temptation Lipsticks - 10 different shades (on tattoo)
  • Goddess Lipsticks - 10 different shades (on tattoo)
  • Flower Lipsticks - 10 different shades (on tattoo)
  • Fruits Lipsticks - 10 different shades (on tattoo)
- 5 Nose Styles

There are also Loud Mouth and Slink Visage appliers available for purchase too! The only hard part is choosing what gorgeous make-ups to get. Make sure you demo them ASAP!

I know this post is getting long, but I had to mention this fabulous Salcombe Gazebo set from Isla Gealach of Cheeky Pea! It is a FaMESHed exclusive this month and perfect for your Spring outdoor decor. Plus, I love the fact that it is materials ready. 
If you notice in the above pic, there are bouquets of wild flowers strewn about,more wild flowers in a vase and also a yellow Refurbished Table.These are Arcade exclusives from Maylee Oh of The Secret Store.You absolutely MUST try your luck at winning this lovely mesh wildflowers and refurbished tables. 
Oh! I almost to forgot to mention the fabulous Rose Sandals that I am wearing! They are latest release from Sigifaust of eQUED. These delicate strappy stilettos with a rose petal heel are literally wearable art. They are available in a bunch of brilliant colors and were made to worn with Slink's AvEnhance Feet Med mesh feet. Please make sure you check them out!
Both of the beautiful hairstyles that I am wearing in the post are recent recently from Kavar Cleanslate of Exile. If you haven't been toExile lately, you should definitely go over there ASAP and try on all of Kavar's stunning new releases. 
So with that said, here are your LMs and Credits:

Perfectly fitting

perfectly fitting

Well it is in my opinion perfectly fitting that this post is perfectly fitted out with creations from three amazing designers, the only difficulty is where to begin. So let’s begin with the fitted mesh. Yes that’s right this gorgeous gown from The White Armory is an example of the newest thing to hit SL shopping, fitted mesh. Not everyone can see fitted mesh yet so it is fortunate that this gown includes both fitted mesh and standard mesh in the usual sizes, so what have I learned about fitted mesh .. not a lot admittedly but here’s two main points. First you do need to wear an alpha, originally I thought that fitted mesh removed the need for the alpha layer but no, instead fitted mesh gives some stretch to your mesh clothing. Take a look at the collage below, in both pictures I am wearing the fitted mesh version of this gown and the only change I made was to my size. On the left my usual size and on the right.. I pushed up the breasts and belly as well saddlebags.

Perhaps I should have used the same pose, but anyway you can see the changes to the bust and hips where the dress just stretched to fit.. now the second thing I learned was there is a point when the mesh ” breaks” becomes distorted, but fitted mesh does allow for a lot more variation in curves than standard mesh so a move in the right direction. For those with more subtle curves.. fitted mesh isn’t necessarily going to be as noticeable or always as positive an experience. Some fitted mesh items  ( from other stores) made my shape look overlarge in some places, the hip and butt area in particular . So there are features I love and at times I will grab a fitted mesh version of another, but as with all mesh outfits DEMO demo demo.

perfect mix

Next up in my appreciation of perfection is the re-release of the Symphony set from Zuri Rayna Jewelry. I have the original version and still wear it as I love the way the necklace sits so beautifully.. but now it comes in a whole new range of vibrant colours I have a new appreciation of the possibilities. Seen here in the bold combination of Parrot green opals, onyx and sterling this set is like a breath of fresh air ..exotic tropical fresh air. I was thrilled at how great my polish from {ZOZ} echoes the intensity and shine.. love it!

I have another collage to share as it was the easiest way to explain about the amazing perfection that is [Mock] makeup. The owner and creator behind this gorgeous makeup has pulled together a huge array of miscellaneous make ups che has created and not released fully before. SO she has packed them all into one small box with a small price – 50L. This is not a group only offer, tp to the store and you will find it sitting on the main desk. In the pictures below I am wearing a mixture of makeups, some full sets, some eye only or lip only.. so you can see the possibilities of how you wear this makeup is enormous.

Hello~ Spouge readers!

This is yet another blog post which I mean to do way earlier in the week but couldn’t get to it, until today… (ノ´д`)

In this post I have another exclusive from The Big Show & I also wanted to show off an awesome backpack from Hex Appeal.

{Anatomy} is participating along side Elska in this month’s round of The Big Show.
Glitch of {Anatomy} made a super cute set of Anime Blushes! The set of Anime Blushes comes in many shades to complement different skin tones so you have a handful of options.
Definitely a must buy if you’re into cute things & want to have that shy anime style blush for your avatar.

Now, Hex Appeal is the new venture of Lix Biscuit. Many know Lix for her out of the box style & blogging @ Spook Show.
For Hex Appeal, Lix joined Dream, Glitch & myself over at out little shopping district where we all have our main-stores at. Hex Appeal’s official release is a super cute & awesome set of mesh backpacks!

RICO’S TEA HOUSE – OPENS TOMORROW

A new Tea House is opening tomorrow at 10amSLT in Second Life and you are all invited to use it!

The building contains a casual tea room filled with an array of food and drink, a more formal lounge area, plus outdoor seating to soak up the sun and take in the gorgeous views.

This will be a great place to spend time, relax, socialise with friends and hopefully meet new people. And you get to do it all in style!

Check back here tomorrow for a landmark.
