The Blue Mars Fashion Show

So my friend GoSpeed mentioned in plurk earlier that Blue Mars was having a small fashion show this morning. I’m not a huge fan of Blue Mars itself, although I do pop in once in a great while to see what’s new, but I could not resist a fashion show. Especially since I wasn’t really aware that people were creating a lot of fashion there.

One nice thing about clothes in Blue Mars is that the shirts actually lie across your chest correctly, unlike in SL where it is reeeeeally tight. But, the fashion is not really what you’d see on the runways of SL.

[Please excuse the photos. The camera controls in Blue Mars are really hard to work with, as is the lighting. I also couldn’t figure out how to take a snapshot like I do in SL, so I had to instead get screenshots.]

Blue Mars - Fashion Show 1

As you can see, the little shirt lies pretty well across the body. I wish SL would get that going. It would be nice to wear a shirt without it sucking in between my boobs. :-p

Still and all, the clothing is very very basic there in Blue Mars. If it was SL, they would consider it “Low lag” because there’s not really prims on anything.

And from what I can see, all skirts are system skirts. That makes me unhappy. If they can make my hair bouncy, I want a good skirt. Maybe there are some, but not in this show. They are kind of interesting, but nothing I would really wear.

Blue Mars is still not a virtual world that I think I’ll frequent often. At least, not until they get the movement and camera controls working better. 🙂

Oh, and the avatars. Something really has to be done about the avatars. Dios.

Day 113 – Fabulous, darling!

I had the chance to model for Eboni Khan of House of Hucci today for the Fabulous Fashion show. It was fun!! And made for a great 113th photo. Holy cow, 113. LOL


I grabbed a few more shots after the show. I apologize for the low quality, I had my settings turned down so that I wouldn’t crash.

Day 77 – Show tonight

I’m tired today.


I also feel like I might possibly be coming down with something, which sucks on so many levels. Either that or I need to just calm the hell down. lol

Tonight is the VR Style fashion show, showing off the designs of SySy’s, RFyre and Rebel Hope. I’m walking in the show and I’d love you all to come. It’s at 6pm SLT at the SilverStar stage. Who knows, maybe someone’s pants won’t rez again! LOL [Oh man, I hope it’s not me.]

I’ll never be a social butterfly

I’ve been having a big ol’ case of winter blues lately, so I’ve been a hermit in my skybox a lot the past couple of weeks. But yesterday I actually went out to a few things, so because this blog has been terribly dull lately, let me show you pics. 🙂

I first made my way to Mexico to take pictures of a dress. Then I realized later that I was wearing the dress wrong. *sighs* Well, not WRONG, but there was one extra thing I should have been wearing, so I’ll have to go back later to reshoot the pics. But while I was there, I had an audience.

I have an audience

My Spanish is minimal at best when writing, so I didn’t have much to say to them.

Later, I headed over to the Mensweek Fashion Show, because it was the Musashi-Do show and I wanted to show my support. It was laggy, as most fashion shows are, and the funniest thing was that one chair was shooting people out of the sim. At least 3 of us ended up like this!

The rogue chair did it.

Lag is really hell when you’re doing a show because a lot of the time, you get that crazy “I’ma just keep walking” thing. C’mon, we’ve all been there. It’s like sim crossing, but not since you’re not crossing a sim. lol

Lag...bad for runway!

And of course, the sim crashed during the show. [Hey, that’s a sign of a good show, right?!] But that was ok because at least when we came back, things were a little better and faster to rez. And if I’d missed seeing guys this cute in these hot suits…I think I would have cried.


Seriously…put a suit on a guy and I get weak.

Speaking of cute guys, here is Rob and Shiryu sitting for the show. I had to wait forever to get this pic. Rob’s pants just did NOT want to rez!

Rob & Shiryu

Oh, and here’s a picture of this guy who kept telling me inappropriate blowjob stories during the show. I dunno who he is. :-p

Just some guy

Later that night [much much later, it was probably near 3am for me], Mr. New World Notes Hamlet IMed me and asked if I wanted to come dance at a small party for RMB City, because it was the one year anniversary party, and the inauguration of a new mayor for the city. Then he really clinched it by saying he needed a celebrity type there. Oh Hamlet, how you stroke my ego. LOL! I think I wasn’t so much a celebrity type as I was someone who was simply online at the time. But either way, I wasn’t doing anything else, so off I went.

The new mayor

Hamlet & me

RMB City is actually a pretty cool, if crazy looking, kind of place. If you like exploring, I would highly suggest it, just because it evolves over time so there’s usually something new to see.

I’ll never be a social butterfly that goes to a bunch of events in a day, but once in a while, I can kind of fake it. 🙂

Day 40 & Busy Bee

I’ve been a busy bee in SL lately. Which, you know, is probably a good thing. But checking my calendar, Friday is the last day I have anything officially scheduled this month. I’m sure something will pop up. 🙂

So what’s happening Friday? The Musashi-Do fashion show!

Show invite

I’m walking in this one and DJing it. I know, he’s a total slavedriver. :-p I’m actually really starting to like doing runway shows. I was quite happy as just a live or print model, but runway is just fun. Plus the models for SilverStar are AWESOME and they keep me laughing the whole time we’re doing shows.

I kinda think I should wear this hair for the show. Think I can get away with it?

Oh maybe?

That’s hair from Tukinowaguma. Darn that Emerald for talking about it one day. LOL! The hair over there is just so NUTS. I love it.

Speaking of Emerald, she passed me something last night because she wanted me to look gangsta with her and Heidi.

I have some crazy friends. LOL


That’s going to be my photo for Day 40. 🙂

My friend Gwendolyn asked me to DJ an ice skating party over on her sim, Hallelujah Azul, tonight at 6pm. It should be nice. I’ll be doing jazz, soft pop, and holiday tunes. That’s always fun for me, to play all the pretty love songs that I adore. 🙂 You guys should come out, there will be gifts and Santa!

I better get back to doing stuff.

Lookin’ good and feelin’ gorgeous

Resting with Santa

Santa and I are resting. It’s going to be a busy weekend. 🙂

So I did my little turn on the catwalk tonight at the Winterstock show. It was SO much fun!! I was nervous, but by show time, I was just pumped and ready to go! I did have two minor heart attacks though. Once when I was trying to change into the second outfit and NOTHING was rezzing, and once when I crashed! LOL!! But in the end, it was great and everyone did a fantastic job.

The best part for me was seeing so so so many of my friends in the audience!! Way before the show started, I was asked if any of my friends were coming. By that time, SIX of them were in the audience! And more just kept coming as the show went on. Knowing they were out there, getting the good luck IMs… Well, it was simply amazing and I’m actually a little humbled by it.

So! The SL Blogger Meet-Up is THIS SUNDAY! 12 noon SLT on Bluebonnet. I hope to see you guys out here!! It should be fun. 🙂 I’m really really excited about it! Remember, we’ll be outside in the snow, so dress warm! 🙂

I need sleep!

Day 34 & Jealousy


I’ve been thinking today about jealousy. I’m not a jealous person by nature. I used to be, back when I was much younger. When I was 17 I broke up with a guy because he merely DREAMED about another girl. I hated if someone was prettier than me [which was everyone], or if I wasn’t invited to go somewhere, or if my best friend got close to someone else.

But like I said, I was much younger. By the time you hit 30, you realize that sort of stuff is pretty stupid. Someone will always be prettier, your best friend is your BEST friend for a reason, and at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter who your boyfriend talks to or dreams about because he still loves you and you’re the one he’s with.

I’ve never been the girl people were jealous about in the physical world. People don’t look at me and think “I’m so jealous of her beauty.” I don’t have a fabulous career, or loads of friends, or a husband, or any kids. Jealousy is simply not that big a part of my life.

So it comes as a surprise in Second Life when I get told frequently that this person or that person is jealous of me. My immediate response is always, “Dear God, why?” Believe me, I was always shocked when someone I was dating in SL was jealous if other guys spoke to me. Someone being jealous of me because of my SLife…it spins my head. What I do and have done is nothing more than what anyone could do, right? Why be jealous? It makes no sense to me.

The thing about jealousy is that it’s draining. It drained me back when I was constantly asking “Who’s that bitch?” to my boyfriends or friends. It drains me now wondering if I can talk about things that are good in my life without someone getting their panties in a twist over it. I know that their jealousy is not actually my problem, but at the same time, I feel BAD. It makes me pity them for not being able to realize that behind a nice looking avatar is a person who sits around in pajama pants praying each day that the next phone call from home is not a bad one.

That’s my big deep thought for the day. Take it however you wish.

And don’t get jealous over this, but tonight is the Winterstock Fashion Show at 7pm SLT. I’ll be walking the runway in 3 designs. I’m so so excited for it. 🙂 I’ve been trying to make sure that each of my outfit folders are JUST right so when I change, I don’t mess up. This is my first official show with the SilverStar Modeling Agency and I don’t want them to wonder why they signed me on. LOL

I’m sneezing like crazy [I have a small cold.] so I think it’s time for more drugs.
