Morning Coffee with Vic

My oldest friend in SL and I had coffee this morning and caught up. He’s one of my favorite people on the grid. He complained about how much stuff I have in my house and how it’s making him lag and I taunted him for how he was dressed and it was like old times.

After he finally left to go to bed – he’s still one of those up all night people while I have left those days firmly behind me, I decided to go check out Relay for Life.  Continue reading

It All Comes Together at Relay Weekend

rfl-2014

There have been Relay for Life fundraising events going on for several months now and they will all come together in the annual culmination of Relay season with Relay Weekend. Relay Weekend kicks off with an Opening Ceremony at 10 A.M. SLT on the 19th and continues for 24 hours as folks walk the 40 sim track. The walk continues for 24 hours because cancer never sleeps and neither can the efforts to prevent, treat and cure cancer.

Fashion For Life has a campsite along the Relay track. Grace Loudon who brilliantly organized the Fashion For Life builds created this build while also heading the team of builders and build organizers for the forty sims for this weekend.

While I Am Sorting

0712_002

While I am sorting the hair from Hair Fair by style so I can shoot the pictures for you, I took a few snaps of this great dress from Thalia Heckroth™. This is only her second release and already she’s working in prints and not doing strapless. That’s ambition. In the distance, you can see some of Half-Deer’s Thomson Gazelles that are available at Collabor88. Continue reading

Rest from Vain Fancies

I am full of relaxation today. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because stressful things ended, maybe it’s a new attitude. Maybe it’s just Friday.  Regardless, it’s a good thing to feel peaceful inside your own head.

I have several cool things happening on pixel Gidge today. The first one is this lovely bed, from Sway’s. You hear from time to time on plurk “Waaaah we’re sick of events waaaaa” and while maybe some are, many are not. However, there’s not doubt that I definitely miss mainstore releases. I miss having a lovely gauntlet of shops that I couldn’t wait for their next IN STORE release. Sway appealed to our love our Gacha as well as our desire to shop at mainstores by releasing a really adorable bed, the Dreamfloat hanging bed.  Continue reading

A Get Away Spot

When I was growing up my Dad’s friend had a trailer down on the river. There was a little community of ramshackle trailers of various ilk, and on the weekend, everyone would head down there for some time, sitting, relaxing, fishing, or whatever.

A lot of card games were played, and rather random foods consumed. Chips with strange dips, donuts and maybe a hot dog might make up your lunch. It just all depended on who you were visiting when it was time to eat something. Continue reading

From Blogger to Creator

jul03_002

I am always excited when a blogger becomes a clothing designer. I think of Milla Michanaga who formed MichaMi and Elysium Elide who started elymode and recognize that both of them focused long and hard on construction quality. I think that, being bloggers, they had this pre-formed set of standards that created a daunting hurdle to overcome before they began to release. Having noted construction flaws in other work, they felt an obligation to do as they say and held themselves to higher standards. So, when Thalia Heckroth™ told me she was moving into clothing design, I was excited. This is her first release and I am pleased to say she continues the tradition.
