Hair Fair 2013 Photo Contest ~ Matrix ~ "Trinity"

Hair Fair 2013 Photo Contest ~ Matrix ~ “Trinity”

My HAIR FOLDER in SecondLife grows and grows!

Gets longer and longer ~ LOL 🙂

So, naturally this competition “snagged” my attention!

ENTRY #1~ MATRIX

I decided to (so far) add 2 entries to the contest.  I could never say I have a “favorite” all time movie, but the MATRIX evolution thrilled me in many ways.

The Music!  I could dance to the song “Fluke” by Zion all night (see video insert below).

And of course, the cavern dance scene was quite hot and steamy!

I always thought Trinity, played by Carrie-Anne Moss, was graced in revolutionary elegance throughout all the MATRIX movies.

This hair style by VANITY “Trinity” was perfect for this photo shoot depicting TRINITY!

I carefully looked through my inventory and marketplace and found this one to be supreme!

The slick black color and behavior in shape proved classical for the highlight of the shot  to depict one of the MOVIES THAT INSPIRE ME.

ENTRY #2 ~ THE TOURIST

I have watched the movie THE TOURIST many times, even including twice inside Second Life with my former business partner

who had created an exquisite movie theatre for us to take breaks and relax while getting away from projects at hand.

The hair by D!Va  “Zaara” is perfect as it’s wispy strands sway in the wind while you walk or pose.

The slight updo appearance gives it an appropriate style for the actress Angelina Jolie’s character, Elise;

especially in the ballroom scenes.

♕ This selection of hair is perfectly crowning for this ensemble! ♕

If you look at the movie posters, you will see how perfect this hair style is for this shot!  

And worthy of note: D!Va created this hair for the Miss Universe pageant in Second Life.

I chose this movie for a couple of reasons as well.

I receive many compliments while wearing this hair, no matter what color I choose.

I love the actress’s name in the movie “Elise”!  Well that’s my real middle name:  Elise’  ت

I have been to Venice several times in real life,

so the sims we have within SL that depict this beautiful and grand Italian city has called upon my visits many times.

The story line of this film is quite delightful as you follow the star’s peculiar eloquence and novelties of a suspenseful draw.

I went on a “posing frenzy” with Trinity!  I found myself posing and posing (because the pose was still showing up in the corner of my viewer – hehe)!

So, I thought I’d share a couple more pix I did (these are not entries to the contest).

I followed along the SL10B 10 Year Anniversary walk along with many friends and sometimes just on my own.

I am STILL not finished!

I was amazed at how much I learned about various histories of sims, projects, details & upgrades within Linden Lab,

interests of our citizens and the enormous amount of creative people we have among ourselves!

"Inspiration" ~ Dancing at SLB10

“Inspiration” ~ Dancing at SLB10

A lot of interactive sections took my special interest.

I decided to visit the sites sometimes in casual attire and others…..well you will see below….

It’s hard NOT to stop at every display to read, click or just set back in awe.

Almost every vendor has awesome free gifts for you to take home, too!

(Oh my ~ my inventory totally grew..expanded…packed!  Wonder how long it will take me to rez it all!)

I made sure to keep a special folder with information, note cards and landmarks for places to visit once this event has ended.

The Scout ~ Vian!

The Scout ~ Vian!

Vian was my SCOUT!  She was always one step ahead of me sending me landmarks and lists of places to go visit.

Every time we got together, we found ourselves laughing and yet separated as I would go one way and she would go another! LOL

Here she is posing for me at Spellbound ~ One of the most magnificent designs I have yet to see.

SL10B Birthday Cake  ~ Yum Strawberries!

SL10B Birthday Cake ~ Yum Strawberries!

If you haven’t been yet, today is the LAST DAY!

The SL10B Birthday Cake is spectacular!  

Below this “dripping-in-icing-and-kiwi-and-chocolate-and-strawberry” cake is one of the main stages for dancing and entertainers.

If you watch the local chat, you could chuckle all day!

SL10B Bear Avatar ~ Bambi Bear Dancing

SL10B Bear Avatar ~ Bambi Bear Dancing

Today I decided to go ALL BEAR OUT and wear SecondLife’s gift to everyone (free on marketplace for a limited time).

I took a stroll down the History area where I posed a few times as a for sure Female SL Bear! 🙂

This one made the crowd around me cheer and laugh.  I could hear the sound of the cameras going off! hehe

So I’m sure somewhere out there on the web is another picture or two of Bambi wearing this cute Bear outfit!

Met a few folks there and shared some “fun times” stories together.  It’s wonderful how much we all love SecondLife!

The Bear Avatar Costume was quite easy to put on, nothing to alter ~ Just bear and GOOOOOOOOOO!

~ PLEASE RETURN SOON ~

I cannot even begin to count how many photographs I took and will be posting them here…..

….along with a fun surprise….

OKIES…hopping back in now ~ still have people to see and places to go at the SL10B Event!

Hope to see you there!

Channing Eagle Fairy ~ Princess Bambina

Channing Eagle Fairy ~ Princess Bambina

Since the beginning of time the BamPu Clan of Planet Enigmace has lived peacefully within their hidden coppice.

Life proves to be abundant among the harmonious occupants of this world.

The BamPu Clan ~ River Of Trance on Planet Enigmace

The BamPu Clan ~ River Of Trance on Planet Enigmace

Their forest grew thick with undisturbed thickets of protection and tranquil rivers full of life and love.

The Defenders ~ Micah & Harlove Flew Over The Stockades

The Defenders ~ Micah & Harlove Flew Over The Stockades

One pacifistic morning a thud was heard in the distance.

No other being had ever breached the barrier of the enigmacious hazy tealezad gas clouds which defended their world.

In quickness Harlove and Micah flew over the stockades in hopes to catch a glimpse of the possible intruder.

There was only a wisp of scented fluctuation which left magnetic trails leading away from their honored throne of The Guardian Channing Opal Eagle. 

Devotion ~ Harlove & Bambina Watch The Channing Wispa Statue Cry

Devotion ~ Harlove & Bambina Watch The Channing Wispa Statue Cry

With fresh tears now streaming from the Wispa Statue all knew it was time to prepare for a quest to save their Channing Opal Eagle and sudden fragile world.

The Channing Opal Eagle was no longer there and had been stolen away.

Mighty Strength ~ Micah With All His Strength & Powers

Mighty Strength ~ Micah With All His Strength & Powers

Micah called upon the BamPu Spirits with his strength and glorious words.

He reminded the people of the mysterious wicked sorcerer who had been born among them,

yet fled in spiteful jealousy over the announcement to crown Princess Bambina as Queen of BamPu Enigmace.

This sad creature had grown hate in her heart and left many hints of her devious plans to one day destroy their world;

at least she thinks.

Return Overture ~ Micah & Vaneza

Return Overture ~ Micah & Vaneza

One by one the people of the clan prepared for their new journey.

Armor and weapons were of great need.

Our precious Vaneza called everyone to join.

All were equal to stand, all were equal to pursue.

Shore Up ~ Vaneza, Bambina & Micah Prepare For The Quest

Shore Up ~ Vaneza, Bambina & Micah Prepare For The Quest

The sounds of the forest came alive as the animals gathered among them in revelance to aid.

COURAGE ~ Bambina & Harlove in the Tunnel Of Secrets

COURAGE ~ Bambina & Harlove in the Tunnel Of Secrets

The forever Maker of Peace, Harlove, took our hands as we flew through the Tunnel Of Secrets.

He proclaimed: “It will take COURAGE, WIT & STRENGTH to endure the CHANNING EAGLE QUEST.

We have always been strong; let us prove this once again”.

To be continued….

In The Year 2525

In The Year 2525 ~ by Bambi Chicque

In The Year 2525 ~ by Bambi Chicque

I occasionally travel through time in my computer viewing all my screenshots from time past.

Late last night I came upon this folder where I had so many shots I couldn’t decide which to play with!

In all our personal journeys within Second Life we happen upon the past, present and future in many assemblies be it shopping or events or just checking things out.

I am infatuated with the intricacies amid my fellow citizens!  

Sometimes I’m on a mission and sometimes not, but wherever I am you know I am snapping screenshots!

The sims of ChouChou have kept my interest and I have taken my friends with me numerous times to help show them off!

When I sat back wondering what to title this picture the funniest thing occurred as I had just listened to the song IN THE YEAR 2525 by Zager & Evans….

and wah-lah…..The title was born!

In the year 2525,

If man is still alive, If woman can survive, they may find…

In the year 3535,
Ain’t gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lie

Everything you think, do and say

Is in the pill you took today.

In the year 4545,

You ain’t gonna need your teeth, won’t need your eyes.

You won’t find a thing to chew

Nobody’s gonna look at you.

In the year 5555,

Your arms hangin’ limp at your sides,

Your legs got nothin’ to do

Some machine’s doin’ that for you.

In the year 6565,

You won’t need no husband, won’t need no wife.

You’ll pick your son, pick your daughter too

From the bottom of a long glass tube.

In the year 7510,

If God’s a-coming,

He oughta make it by then…

Maybe He’ll look around Himself and say”Guess it’s time for the Judgement Day”.
In the year 8510,

God is gonna shake His mighty head;

He’ll either say, “I’m pleased where man has been”Or tear it down, and start again.
In the year 9595,

I’m kinda wonderin’ if man is gonna be alive;

He’s taken everything this old earth can give

And he ain’t put back nothing.

It's Time For Judgement Day ~ by Bambi Chicque

It’s Time For Judgement Day ~ by Bambi Chicque

Now it’s been ten thousand years,

Man has cried a billion tears;

For what, he never knew, now man’s reign is through.

But through eternal night, the twinkling of starlight

So very far away, maybe it’s only yesterday.

Today Is 6~8~2013 Scroll

I love the lyrics to this song and how the message moves me.  Thank goodness for amazing music in Second Life!

I was thrilled this morning when I posted the first picture above on FLICKR and instantly gained

numerous Awards and beautiful words as well as private messages.

I hope you will visit again to enjoy more of my work soon.

I think I’ve received already 60 Awards just today!  Woohoo!  Thank You!

I appreciate my fans!

I am thrilled that I have yet sold another one of my Second Life graphics!

A Client of mine who purchased from me during Valentine’s this past year called and said he was decorating his pool room and was looking for “HOT CHICKS” to add to his masculine facade and wanted something quite large to hang over his multi-colored leather couch.

I knew he sported 3 custom made Harley Davidson’s and I quickly drove over to show him this photo I took at the Amsterdam sim.

He instantly placed his order and allowed me to select the frame.  I can’t wait to see it hanging during his next pool reception!

I’ll be adding this to my website soon!

Varoooooooooooooom!  Enjoy!

If you haven’t visited the AMSTERDAM Sim ~ It’s a Must See & Do!  Beautiful, lots of shopping and dancing!

Creator: Picasa Vella ~ Name Of Bike: Davinchi Short Fork.

I will have to now take a visit to her sim: Hoolie Vella Bay, Hoolie Vella Biker Sim and check out her other creations.
