Virtual World Fashion Destination

A Little Sightseeing!

I’m so excited!  Here’s a machinima of the special project I’ve been working on.  I made all the hair in this video!

Not only have I been exploring in a re-creation of the Medieval City of Rhodes and making hair for a really great project working with the Kingdom of Demolay creative team, but they’ve just come out with a machinima trailer highlighting everything we’ve been working on. 

It was fun being part of the actors in the making of the video.  At one point I was a young teen man roller-skating around the piano in the park concert scene.  Another time I was the goalie in the soccer scene.  Go Yellow!  Also played the skateboarding girl in the pac-man-esque hedge maze game.  I think we all had way too much fun helping put this together, but all the machinima credit goes to Ariella Furman of FramedIn3D.com who did a fabulous job on it!  You can see more examples of Ariella’s work here: http://framedin3d.com/view_our_work.php.  I especially like the video she produced for Tribe Islands.  Wow!

So since we’re going through the virtual video scrapbook, I figured I’d also share a few of my sightseeing pics that I took yesterday after I finally got my imprudence to let me see shadows!  Woot!

How does all this sight-seeing relate to fashion?  Well aside from the hair that is (check the video!), fashion is small portion of our virtual experiences.  Yes, it is part of how we express ourselves, but in and of itself it is nothing without the actors, the audience, and the stage on which we all play upon.  Here’s to all the stage-makers, the dreamers of dreams, and the creators of worlds.  My hat’s off to you!
All the (virtual) world’s a stage! 
What part will you play?

Taming Rowena

 Oft she strayed as windflowers played,
Gathering poppies red for her bower-bed.
 Tangled tresses touseled by wayward breeze.
Brought spying suitors to their knees,
 To beg one sweet glance from maiden fair,
Rowena of the untamed hair.

Today I chanced upon a lovely gown at Evie’s Closet that was only 50I’z.  I nearly scattered the contents of my coin-purse in my flurry to procure the tiny amount of requested cents.  Ladies, if you are looking for a lovely gown for your wanderings and roleplay, you might wish to saunter over to Evie’s Closet on the Big Blue Easy sim in InWorldz to find Rowena.  The gown comes in White or Black with beautiful white embroidery on the bodice and long flowing ethereal sleeves.

Worn also are the Dark Earth necklace by Svarovski, Tomorrow skin by Pulse, Shine V2 Bluish eyes by Eye Candi, and Tayme – a new hair that I am working on for Destiny Hair.

Wishing meadows full of all the flowers your heart can hold!

Love,
Boudica


Destiny Hair Grand Opening in InWorldz!

There’s a new hair shop in town!

I am excited to announce the Grand Opening of my new hair shop, Destiny Hair, at Noon on Tuesday, June 7th in InWorldz.  Why a Tuesday?  Because it’s my RL Birthday!  I can’t think of a more fun way to celebrate with you all and have fun with some new hair!

In the spirit of FUN, I will also be holding “A Wild Hair” hunt from June 7th to June 18th in and around the shop and garden, with a collection of hair in some wild new shades.
