"Fantasies Of Tandy - Tandy Leather & Fur Gown" by Bambi Chicque

“Fantasies Of Tandy – Tandy Leather & Fur Gown” by Bambi Chicque

“If I know a song of Africa, of the giraffe and the African new moon lying on her back,

of the plows in the fields and the sweaty faces of the coffee pickers,

does Africa know a song of me?

Will the air over the plain quiver with a color

that I have had on,

or the children invent a game in which my name is,

or the full moon throw a shadow over the gravel of the drive that was like me,

or will the eagles of the Ngong Hills look out for me?”

“When you have caught the rhythm of Africa,

you find out that it is the same in all her music.”

~ Karen Blixen, Out Of Africa

∻⊰ ☆ ⊱∻

While creating a scene for my photo and ad, as I usually do,

the winds of whimsical lingered throughout and I decided

to make this one available for YOU!

Among my favorite colors, such as teals and turquoise, coppers and golden hues

capture the spirit of my heart when designing.

I worked hard to create a glimmering leather gradient for the gown

and perfected a soft golden fur for the stole and lower ruffled skirt!

I hope it’s pleasing to you, too!

I am on a roll with designing whimsical hats since I made out like a bandit

during Art In Hats where I was in the top sales list!

I love this precious baby elephant laying down snacking on his peanuts.

Won’t you join him?

In setting up my textures for the scene,

I wanted to magnify the fantasies of butterfly wings on the elephants.

The colors of my golden and copper tones flow flawlessly throughout

all the items available in this scene!

I will create more textures for my

“Blown Away Tree” for a later day,

for now this one coordinates with my

“Tandy Elephant Safari Scene & Blown Away Tree” Full Set.

These are now available at my BamPu Legacies MAIN SHOP !

(Main Store is currently under construction – expect something amazing!)

The face is glorious!

Bravo to Charlie!

"Life On The Zambezi River" by Bambi Chicque

“Life On The Zambezi River” by Bambi Chicque

Life On The Zambezi River has had it’s ups and downs throughout the History of the

Batonga people who have lived in the Zambezi Valley for hundreds of years.

The mighty river is the 4th largest in the world with many myths and legends that

have kept their tribes’ memories and founding fathers close at heart through

their stories.  Today they survive in much better conditions after a severe flood

had stuck them during a time when an important dam was being built;

hence and the project finally proved to be a necessity.

They held native rituals during that time before making final decisions

and agreeing to continue with the dam.

Life on the Zambezi River as it was then, is as it is now.

If you want to get a feel for what Africa is like, take this opportunity now while the

Jewelry & Accessory Expo 2014 is still underway.

December 5th through December 13, 2014!

Explore the pure scenic vistas and magnificent wildlife…

Discover abounding jewelry and accessories to garnish your wardrobes….

Pick up some amazing “exclusives”, play GACHAS and for sure mark

your calendars for their elaborate Fashion Shows!

I was in awe with the music, too!

"My Tamed Protector of the Sahara" by Bambi Chicque

“My Tamed Protector of the Sahara” by Bambi Chicque

People wonder,

Why do I answer when Africa calls?

Could it be the incidents of nature;

senses and emotions swarming in a sequence of stimulation.

Or the roar of the lion clamoring in the early morning caramel-skies.

The rasps in the gloom can bounce from leopards scratching,

buffalo grazing, giraffes gracefully stretching to the top of the timbers,

and even the hippos trekking from the calmness of the river’s safety.

Dangerous beauties are all found in the African bush.

We ponder their gentleness as we watch them play with their young

and wish to tame them as our personal heroic companions.

We love their colors, their furs, their stripes and the patterns of their pelts.

Bouncing across the Savannah in an open top Land Rover,

with cameras, arms for protection and pen at hand;

men and women have come to love the blending fragments of adventure

within the depths of the African lands and spirit.

With that being said,

It’s no wonder the “safari theme” drapes our closets, our living rooms and

even our vehicles.

OUT OF AFRICA

OUT OF AFRICA Logo

I have a great affinity for all things Africa!

In fact, my Bucket List includes a real life trip to Cape Town where I plan to visit 2 families of special friends (with whom I have known for 20 years) who will arrange a Photography Safari Adventure.  So, in the mean time I thought I’d take you within the African depths of Second Life and show you some of my favorite sims that I have visited over the last year or so.

"Eye See Africa" by Bambi Chicque ~ Sim by ALB "Lamu Dreams"
“Eye See Africa” by Bambi Chicque ~ Sim by ALB “Lamu Dreams”

We all have done that “search thing” for a theme when we want to find somewhere to explore or shop in Second Life.

And sometimes while shopping we just happen upon that significant matter on the brain; ie: double the pleasure!

My fondness for AnaLee Balut’s designs of ALB LAMU takes me to just that moment when I visit her ALB DREAM FASHION Boutique.

Well, it’s more than a boutique!  Once there, you better set some time on your watch to stay an entire day as there is more than meets the eye with her creations.

"Paint My World Day & Night" by Bambi Chicque ~ Sim by ALB "Lamu Dreams"
“Paint My World Day & Night” by Bambi Chicque ~ Sim by ALB “Lamu Island”

My favorite area is her LAMU ISLAND which blends the Orient & African motif in landscape, building and an array of items to purchase.

You can opt to take the tour upon a friendly donkey or do what I did:

"And They Follow" by Bambi Chicque ~ ALB Sim "ASPIRE HEIGHTS & LAMU DREAMS"
“And They Follow” by Bambi Chicque ~ ALB Sim “ASPIRE HEIGHTS & LAMU ISLAND”

(Well I actually did both! teehee!)

I visit her sim often since I am a thrilled member of her group and receive notices for their new items, group gifts and special events.

One of my many visits was back in February 2013 where I decided to begin my lifelong personal hunt for African and Jungle Themed sims to photograph for my photography series I am creating for a special project.

And thus begins my account of Out Of Africa…

"Prayer For Journey" by Bambi Chicque ~ Clothing by ALB "Jade"
“Prayer For Journey” by Bambi Chicque ~ Clothing by ALB “Jade”

“The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon at night. The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil. He shall preserve thy soul.

The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in. From this time forth and even forevermore.”  Amen.

One must daydream a little when speculating upon a theme to photograph and write about.  It takes more than a day; wait…more than a month;…wait much more sometimes to bring the tale alive.

So I sat in ALB’s Dream Globe many a time – (and have purchased it for my own meditations ~ it’s only $100 Linden!)

I searched through my Second Life Photography files for moments in time where I engaged upon such African and Jungle matters.  I remember going to the PATRON sim with my ex-business partner, Gopu, as he wanted to buy an extravagant Christmas Tree for our palace (where else other than Patron??).  We found it to be another unique sim where you can visit to purchase lustful items as well as exploring their creative ambient locale.

"The Elephant Trail" by Bambi Chicque ~ Patron Sim
“The Elephant Trail” by Bambi Chicque ~ Patron Sim

By 1Gent :

the elephant trail

We lived by the legends, held fast the songs
We carved the land and painted the ancient rocks
We walked the plains and we drove the rains under thundered sky
These are the tales that keep memories alive 
These are the rhythms, to which our souls arrive.
Seek and be sought
Old father holds son, reminds him all he taught
Seek and be sought.
Walk now and fast, follow the elephant trail
These herds are not your own.
Walk now and fast, journey the elephant trail
These herds are not your own.
Walk now and fast, journey lone
Find and make your herd on the elephant trail.

"Explore Beyond" by Bambi Chicque
“Explore Beyond” by Bambi Chicque

 I have continued my quest for the African zill and recently ventured onto a magnificent sim with my friend Vian….I spent at least 2 days or more exploring and taking photographs for my collection….

"Freedom Walks In Sunshine" by Bambi Chicque
“Freedom Walks In Sunshine” by Bambi Chicque

Quote from the movie “Out Of Africa”:

“The time you won your town the race…
we cheered you through the marketplace.
Man and boy stood cheering by…
as home we brought you, shoulder high.
Smart lad, to slip betimes away… 
from fields where glory does not stay
Early though the laurel grows…
it withers quicker than a rose…….

…Now you will not swell the rout…
of lads that wore their honors out.
Runners whom renown outran…
and the name died…
before the man……

"Home With No Doors" by Bambi Chicque ~ Pose by F*ing Ninjas ~ Clothing by EMO-tions
“Home With No Doors” by Bambi Chicque ~ Pose by F*ing Ninjas ~ Clothing by EMO-tions

….. And round that early laureled head…
will flock to gaze the strengthless dead…
and find unwithered on its curls…  
a garland…
briefer than a girl’s………. 

"Rasps In The Grasslands" by Bambi Chicque ~ Sim: Jungle Starhaven
“Rasps In The Grasslands” by Bambi Chicque ~ Sim: Jungle Starhaven

….. Now take back the soul of Denys George Finch Hatton…
whom You have shared with us.  
He brought us joy…  
and we loved him well. 
He was not ours,
He was not mine.

"Pulse Of Africa" by Bambi Chicque ~ Sim:  Jungle Starhaven
“Pulse Of Africa” by Bambi Chicque ~ Sim: Jungle Starhaven

If I know a song of Africa…  
of the giraffe…   
and the African new moon lying on her back…
of the plows in the fields…
and the sweaty faces of the coffee pickers…
does Africa know a song of me?   
Will the air over the plain quiver…
with a color that I have had on? 
Or will the children invent a game…
in which my name is?
Or the full moon throw a shadow…
over the gravel of the drive…
that was like me? 
Or will the eagles of the Ngong Hills look out for me?
