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).

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!!

Angel Manor Library

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.

The Rose Theatre Art Gallery

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.

Beautiful stained glass windows At Angel Manor!

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 Nutcracker Performance December 2012

The Nutcracker Performance December 2012

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!
