Today I’m excited to show you my entry for the 2013 Oscar Fashion Photo Contest (see photo below) which is sponsored by Sascha’s Designs and Styles by Danielle!  I first learned about this contest while visiting The Rose Theatre with a friend. So I thought I’d do a little write up real quick about The Rose Theatre / Angel Manor and plan to add more notes regarding Sascha’s Designs and Stylle immediately following.

Information regarding the contest can be viewed here:

My first visit to The Rose Theatre / Angel Manor was in November 2012 while on another “photo shoot” opp with a friend.  He suggested we visit the Rose Theatre Art Gallery in hopes to continue my inspiration and aspirations for my personal graphics artwork and future plans with it in SecondLife and my personal website.

I have a grand collection of photographs to add to my website very soon. http://tanyaelisehowardphotography.yolasite.com/

The Rose Theatre

The first area we ventured into was the Library!  I gasped at the beauty and perfect texturing throughout which resulted in excellent craftsmanship in design.  I’m quite picky about texturing myself!  There are so many rooms and areas to visit ~ it reminds me of the Smithsonian Institute in that you just can’t see it all in one day!  I had seen photographs of this amazing Library on the web in the past and was delighted to actually be inside it now!  It’s breathtaking and is a “must see” in SL!!

We spent several hours wondering around and taking pictures before we entered the Art Gallery since I was so excited for all the beautiful and entertaining surroundings.  Once inside the Art Gallery I studied carefully the variety of art displayed with impressed thoughts and kudos in my mind for the Artists!  I hope to show my work there someday, too.

I made sure to click on all the visitor information signs for their events, performance venues and art show dates.  This is when I read about the Oscar’s Photo Contest and decided right there and then to enter when the time came around again.

We went back many more times and attended an exquisite Christmas Event:  The Nutcracker Performance. I felt like I was actually living inside SL for real while gazing at the dancers and mesmerized by the music.

The gorgeous stage and extravagant performance hall is one of the most impressive I have seen in SL.  Quite glamorous!!  There is a sort of elegant vintage feel when you are a guest of this venue.  I hope they put on Phantom Of The Opera sometime soon, too!

The palace was built by Kaya Angel.  One of the rooms has magnificent art hanging with a photograph of Kaya and associates.  (photo to be added soon)

And so the time arrived to enter the 2013 Oscar Fashion Photo Contest and I have been a busy little bee changing into an array of evening gowns, setting up my own props at the BamPu Legacies Photography Studio and simply visiting sims to take pictures.  My friends always IM me to come play ~ but I have been on a mission for the last month to get that final photo to submit.  So, here you are!

A journey through Second Life can include more than just a mere visit to a sim for a glance or to shop; one never knows what surprises you’ll find along the way.  But first?  Must go shopping for that right outfit together!

~Gabriel Fashion & Accessories~

My friend, Gopu suggested we shop for coordinating winter fur jackets.  I knew just the right place!  So we hit one of my very favorite stores “Gabriel Fashion & Accessories”.  Of course, you can’t leave that fabulous store without looking around and picking up a few more things before heading out for the evening!  Oh…and they allow you to purchase gifts for your friends on site.  Gift exchanging can be fun any time of the year! Our deciding selection for a stroll on the Waterfront was Gabiel’s “Mega Fur Jacket” ensemble.  There are many wonderful fur designers in Second Life, but we had to pick out more than one set as their designs are superlicious!  I have found these matching White Fur Boots to be one of my fav’s!

So we headed straight to the Waterfront where several sims had pulled together for a special event.  Along the way we met a quite friendly pup that just had to be played with.  We walked him home and headed down the path for more to see and do.

We stopped for a rest at a local farm area and fed the beautiful horses ripe red apples.  Gazing at the stars for a while, the music set the pace for a decision to dance.

After stopping a few times to take photographs, I noticed Gopu at the “Awffle House” ~ where I come from that’s Waffle House!  I joined him for the Michael Jackson Thriller dance….oh and so did a few Zombies!

~Thriller Dance~

As it began to draw closer into the night, we decided to take a little swim.  Much to our surprise we encountered a lovely spunky dolphin who was friendly enough to join us.

We became a bit thirsty and decided to stop off for a cocktail and found ourselves on the dance floor once again ~ a usual custom we have had when we get together.

Finally, the night wouldn’t end right without a mere friendly Second Life hug.

Make sure you visit Gabriel’s soon.  They have a live DJ from time to time as you shop among many new items, sales and visit the other nearby venues.  I’m sure you will find Gabriel’s to be one of the finest clothing and accessory stores for men and women!

Stay tuned as I have hundreds more ventures to share with you.   There is still much tweaking to do for the opening of the BamPu’s Enigmacious Merhaven along with many more surprises to come!

Until next time!

Ciao!

HOW IT ALL BEGAN…

Coming from another popular virtual world where I worked as a Moderator

for several years as well as obtaining a high profile status as a Player and a

Master Mission Maker was a hard decision to grasp when I made my move

to SecondLife. I had been honored by having 3 Featured Missions;

selected from thousands available to play. I still get questions on my Facebook and

Skype about particular interactions

for them when someone gets stuck and needs help!

BamPu Legacies Special Notes (2)

But, upon discovering a new passion in the creative challenges and endless possibilities for

my talents, I decided to tread through deeper waters in SecondLife!

I knew I was hooked the first day my friend brought me into this new world

and my head instantly whirled with ideas! I began designing as soon as I arrived

in Second Life and “foldered-up” lots of goodies to prepare for my shop:

As far as my real life goes, my Father taught me how to design jewelry many moons

ago, may he rest in peace. Clutched with my modeling career, some acting and

dancing for Star City Dancers, listed with Kim Dawson Modeling Agency,

and working at the Dallas Apparel Mart as a Showroom Manager and

Marketing Director – I soon began to design my own lines of fashion jewelry

and clothing. I did this up until about 5 years ago when I moved to Alaska

for a photography adventure which lasted well over a year!

I have been blessed throughout my entire life and looking back at all the countries

I visited and fell in love with, all the worldly friends I am cherished with and

my family’s love – my life has now been sprinkled yet again with hundreds

of new friends with whom we all share a common goal together in SecondLife!

I have a Marketing Degree which has really helped put me on the map

for any business I develop. I have also written story lines for books

(and possibly screenplays since I have a local Director/Producer here in Dallas

urging me to get one to him) to be soon published. Yep, I stay quite busy!

I have my own photography website and building a new one at the moment.

I have accumulated hundreds of Awards on Flickr for my SL Photography

and have opened an Art Gallery where I have many plans to invite

some of my fellow Photographers to share their work there, too!

Both my Grand Mother and my Father taught me to paint and I spent

endless summers developing many more creative

talents that hold a special place in my heart because of them.

I have even been told that I could take Fred Sampson’s old grungy garage

and turn it into a Smithsonian Museum! LOL

Take A Break Join BamPu Legacies

My time today is devoted to creating unique and creative items for Hunts and Fairs,

I am in photoshop just about 24/7, I spend time at one of my best friend’s Ranch

outside of Austin, Texas where I ride horses and take photographs and

I create more and more clothing and decorative items while adding

to my shops in SL. But, the most favorite thing I love to do is my

Photography and Graphics – especially within the never-ending amazements

we all share and glide through in SecondLife!

I am a shopaholic and a gachaholic! I love buying poses, hair, jewelry, shoes…etc!

I have the honor of blogging for many other Designers and my IM’s are

capped every day with questions, requests, news, updates….well you know the ropes! LOL

I have several Satellite Shops in SecondLife and a MAIN SHOP.

I hope you come to visit me and feel free to send me a notecard any time.
