A Loft To Call Home

A Loft To Call Home

6th Republic, an event that focuses mainly on industrial-style home and garden items, opened a couple of days ago.  It’s a style that I love, but that I don’t use all that often, but the items there were so inspiring.  I’d like to point out just a couple of the items that I particularly like.  First, the desk in the left part of the photo is from Stockholm & Lima, and comes in both an adult and PG version.  The detail in the desk is just extraordinary.  On top of that is a new decor piece from Apple Fall – the ‘Strength’ Fragment.  The bed and cello are both from a gacha machine created by NOMAD.  It has a total of 8 commons and 1 rare, so it’s not too difficult to collect the full set!  Finally, a lot of the miscellaneous accent items are from a new set by BAZAR.  These include the paper bag, the hanging bicycle, the clothing rack, the shoes, and the lamp.  The setting for all of this is a new studio apartment skybox by Pixel Mode that is just absolutely gorgeous.

I’m wearing things from a couple of different events, as well.  My new shirt from …Scars… and jeans from not so bad are both from The Men’s Department, and my necklace by [Body Factory] is available at The Showroom.  Full credits for what I’m wearing and for the room are below.

Fantasy Faire Is Almost Here!

Why I RelayRelay For Life is something that I have been involved with in Second Life for many years now, on many different levels.  One of my favorite RFL events of the year is the Fantasy Faire, which opens tomorrow at 9 AM SLT!  I am proud and honored to be one of the official Fantasy Faire bloggers for this year.  Fantasy Faire has asked its bloggers to do a couple of blog challenges to help foster the community.  This post is Why I Relay.

I relay for many reasons, but the main one is that I can, while so may others can’t.  Like many of us, I’ve had people close to me who have heard the dreaded words telling them that they have cancer.  Some are still with us, but others are not.  One of my good Second Life friends was Madame Maracas.  We lost Maddie to cancer on September 8, 2010.  I have since set up a memorial park in her honor in-world, and enjoy going there to visit and see the photos of her.  I also have an aunt out in California who is currently beating the odds.  Six years ago, she was diagnosed with late-stage ovarian cancer.  She is still with us, and actually I will get to see her and her husband next week.  I can’t wait to talk to her and see how she’s doing.

The Battlemage

The avatar that I am wearing is comprised almost entirely of items from this year’s Fantasy Faire, with many of them being Relay For Life donation items.  In addition, the gorgeous gazebo that I’m standing in is also new for the Faire, and was built by Sharni Azalee, who sponsored, designed, and built the Ichi-go Ichi-e sim at the Faire this year.  Full credits are below!  Since the Faire is not yet open, though, I’m not allowed to provide SLURLs to the sims.  I will go back through tomorrow once the sims open and add those.
