"Washed Up Mannequins" by Bambi Chicque

“Washed Up Mannequins” by Bambi Chicque

The Mannequin!

They are used, yet not necessarily abused..

We see them with draped furs, diamonds & denims

Some have beautiful heads,

Some are bald and some, well they don’t even have eyes!

But if you watch one closely for a long periord

You just might catch that magical *wink* a time or two!

Watch out, a huge smile will blossom on both yours and theirs.

We turn and walk away while they stand all alone

Through the nights of closed doors

And after a few years of perpetual stiffness

They may begin to sway…

Off to the storage or alley’s way

Where do these lovelies all go?

Wondering minds want to know…

By Bambi Chicque

We in SL seem to be mesmerized by mannequins, dummies & models!

We see them in all shapes, colors and forms.

Such a delight to have them hanging around with useful purpose

or just simply decorating our gardens or parlors.

I fell in love with all: Anc’s Mannequin as the headless horse,

Remarkable Oblivian’s steampunk-ish and soiled, AND the newest

one to my inventory is 22769’s Tailor’s House Mannequin designed

for the Fantasy Gacha Carnival !

I’m encouraging you to snag up Black Tulip’s “Beauty” Pose Collection, too!

She has 2 sets and both have mirrored poses.

I use these elegant poses all the time!

Hope you enjoyed my lil’ review as much as I did creating it!

These mannequins are

gorgeous in every way – Bravo to all these Designers!

Rusted Time Just Like Clockwork

Rusted Time Just Like Clockwork

RUSTED TIME JUST LIKE CLOCKWORK

With much anticipation for a steamy awaited venture;

I snatched my flighty robotic sidekick, Moon Shadow,

as escort for an acceptance to a royal gala and affair.

I noticed my grunge-dated envelope revealed a faded time stamp.

Where had all the time gone?

What Year of the Lord is it upon my newly fated eve?

I am quite sure my clock still works.

Or had it stopped with a tattered tide?

My dresses within my wardrobe had rusted to a blended gold.

The celestial sphere radiated in an auspicious hue

blowing dust and powders amid my booted feet.

My motor car transposed to a shoddy heap.

Oh dear me,

I fear I seem to have rusted in some sundry state or prime.

But dismay not,

Just like clockwork,

I shall still be on time.

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”

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.

 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……

….. 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

….. 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?
