The Motherload ~ Contest Entry for The Arcade Photo Contest June 2013

The Motherload ~ Contest Entry for The Arcade Photo Contest June 2013

This was a blast!  

First off, I went to The Arcade on opening day and played a little and won a few Rares!

I couldn’t stay very long as I had other projects to tend to, but I was “bit” by the compulsion of playing to win particular items so I planned to return soon.

I returned a few more times and won a couple more Rares!  Wowzie!

Rock My World

Rock My World

Finally, on the last day I knew I best get my little pixie behind to The Arcade since I knew there were items that were a “MUST HAVE” on my list!

The designs and ideas that the creator’s bring forth for this event overwhelm and inspire me!

Such cleverness!

I Love The Arcade

I Love The Arcade

Once my Arcade June Bucket List was full I headed to my GARAGE to unpack, try on, rezzzz, play and giggle with the fun things I found.

So now the Valley Girl lingo:  OMG!  I WON SO MANY RARES!  I won the MOTHERLOAD! Like Totally!

Therefore I decided to enter The Arcade Photo Contest 2013 and title my entry “The Motherload”!

The Sugar Hair Effect ~ Vian Cracks Me Up!

I FELL IN LOVE WITH THE SUGAR GLIDERS!

Vian and I dressed up in our new SUGAR GLIDER AVATAR perfectly created by WILDS OF ORGANICA!

As I was panning around to see how Vian was coming along I burst in laughter!

She was telling me how many birds were in this HAIR she was wearing and pranced around a bit.

So, this is what a Sugar Glider looks like when she wants to get “all dolled up”! LOL 🙂

We then set out to GLIDE AROUND SECOND LIFE for a few hours together.

They fly so sweetly!

And to top if off, when you wear the HUD ~ the Sugar Glider has several eye controls to select from, but the most effect in awe is their stance!

They stand in several glide animations that are simply precious!

They swoon, they glide in place ~ A MUST HAVE -AND- MUST SEE -AND- MUST DO!

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.

Hair Fair 2013 Photo Contest ~ The Tourist ~ "Elise"

Hair Fair 2013 Photo Contest ~ The Tourist ~ “Elise”

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.

Truth Model Search Logo 800x

Truth Hawks has announced a grid wide competition:  Truth Model Search! 

This is quite exciting to me as I remember purchasing loads of his hair when I first came into Second Life.

I have a huge dynamic folder dedicated to his excellent designs which I can alter depending on my mood and particular dress for the day.

The competition opened 14 May 2013 SLT and closes 1 June 2013.

He has a flickr page dedicated to everyone’s entries.  I have admired numerous selections of many darling Second Life ladies that have entered.

You can post your photographs on his flickr to be included for the running to win a $2500 Truth Gift Card and have your picture featured in his store.

He is also selecting 10 lucky winners and will rotate posters featuring the selected models in his store as well as receive a $1000 Gift card.

Timeless ~ Truth Hair "Bea"

Timeless ~ Truth Hair “Bea”

I jumped on the opportunity to join his competition for a few reasons.

#1 ~ I love his hair because it is exactly to me what it states “TRUE” ~ looks absolutely true and natural!

I am thrilled with the new colors for his mesh designs.

I purchased several new styles to include his $400Linden set with a variety of colors; rather than purchasing a single color set.

When I say variety? I mean ~ GOBS AND GOBS of variations are included in these sets.

SORAZORA -Truth Hair "Kaelyn"

SORAZORA -Truth Hair “Kaelyn”

I can’t wait to wear some of the new styles and colors I bought.  All my friends know they will see me in a new outfit and hair design every time we visit!

His new store is set up in a superb manner where shoppers have plenty of room to walk around and view the large photos while deciding on their purchases.

(I call this a “NO BUMPIES” store! ~ No one bumping into each other! LOL )
