Dolls of Christmas: Spain

(click to enlarge)
The next destination for the Dolls of Christmas tour is Spain, home to my hysterical, talented, and big-hearted best friends at the sandbox. You awesome!

In Spain, Nativity scenes are very important. People compete for Best Nativity with large and elaborate displays. Figurines are big selling items and very collectable. Even famous people are made into figures you can add to your manger scene. My fun friends from Spain shocked me when they revealed just how important one particular figurine is to a successful nativity display. If you want good luck for the next year, you better have a Caganer!

Feliz Navidad y próspero año nuevo!

UPDATE: At Solylence, look under the christmas tree at the different gift boxes. Original mesh clothing for men and women on sale 50% off, including the cool LED lights dress.

Dolls of Christmas: Sweden

(click to enlarge)
Our next trip on the Dolls of Christmas tour takes us up north to the home of my friends in Sweden.

On the darkest day of winter, December the 13th, the people of Sweden hold flickering candles and give thanks for the sunlight with Saint Lucia showing the way with song, warm coffee, and sweet lussekatt buns. Lucia (or Lucy) means "light." She wears a long white dress with red sash and headdress of lingonberry branches and candles.

13 december var Sankta Lucia dag i sverige. Vi önskar alla en god Jul och ett gott nytt är 2013!

Dolls of Christmas: Germany

(click to enlarge)
Our second stop on Christmas Dolls tour is Germany for my lovely posing partner and the owner of the Men's blog.

The Christ Child is an angelic bringer of gifts to the good children of Germany. Originally meant to be the Baby Jesus, the Christkind is now usually shown as girl or woman in gold and white.

Like a Sith version of Santa Claus, Knecht Ruprecht doesn't bring gifts to nice children, he brings horrible presents like coal to naughty children and he may spank them with a twitch too! Alpine nations even have more sinister looking Krampus who has goat horns and cloven hooves. But for my modern interpretation of Knecht Ruprecht, I take inspiration from German goth rock band Oomph!. I really like this character, Knecht Ruprecht is cool! We need a character like this in America. lol

Frohe Weihnachten und ein gutes neues Jahr. Ich hoffe du warst brav und das Christkind war bei dir und nicht Knecht Ruprecht!

Dolls of Christmas: Japan

(click to enlarge)
Secondlife makes it possible meet and grow close to many people around the world, even those who dont speak the same language! With the help of translators and being able to "show" instead of "tell," it becomes possible to communicate in ways text based social networks can't. This Christmas I would like to celebrate the season by honoring my friends and their Christmas Traditions.

First up are the clever, ambitious, and talented folks from RMK Gothic who named their new Christmas Tailcoat after me. I feel humbled and amazed! They tell me many interesting things about Christmas in Japan. The biggest surprise is Kentucky Fried Chicken. They must make a reservation for their Christmas KFC chicken months in advance! It's just not Christmas in Japan without the Colonel.

Frost Fair RMK Gothic

(click to enlarge)
As the planet warms slowly year after year, Jack Frost is under a lot of pressure. When asked to stretch his icy claw and freeze the Thames once more, he agrees in an unusually warm gesture of goodwill. What could cause this sudden Christmas spirit in his frigid heart?

RMK Gothic celebrates the holiday season by bringing back a piece of history. During the Little Ice Age of the 17th century and 18th century, the Thames River froze in the heart of London. People took advantage of this usual event and created a shopping festival on the river called the Frost Fair. At the RMK Gothic Frost Fair, you can buy many new and limited edition products as well as score some nice freebies. Participating Stores are:

Cirque du MetaBody

(click to enlarge)
Being a male ballet dancer in mother Russia is highly prestigious, but I dreamed of something more. In my case, I literally did run away and join the circus, -- the Cirque du Soleil to be exact. Yes, I am still throwing people up in the air and catching them. That's what I was hired to do. But I don't have as much pointe work now (that's brutal on a foot!), and I love all the imaginative costumes and music. I hope my parents will someday forgive me and come see me perform. I think they will like what they see.

MetaBody has a collection of avant garde avatars you can download for free, modify how you like, add your own elements, and submit your creation for the next installment. This was a lot fun to do and many good pieces I can use in the future too! Your original creations must be submitted by November 30th. Head to MetaBody for more details.

This photo series was inspired by the new Tableau Vivant Perla Sweater for men and Low Rise Sporty Pants. They reminded me immediately of type of clothing you would see in a dance rehearsal. So enter the Russian dancer! The sweater and pants work great together, but remove the top and you have very sexy low rise pant that is barely hanging on. They are so low my modesty gene kicked in! lol I worked hard on a shape to go with the awesome new Tableau Vivant Marilyn Skin. With the pale brow on Tone 3, I could create a nice color theme. If Mr. Russian Dancer looks vaguely like someone famous, that was an accident, but since it looked good, I just went with it! lol

Fox Hunt Rivalry 1

(click to enlarge)
Lady Elisa von Edelweiss was in town for the fox hunt. When she glanced at me, it was as if the world stood still for a moment. Since she is a great fan of Equestrian sport, I knew if I won the fox hunt I would have a chance to gain her favor. But there was a problem standing in my way, a pansy albino who always wins. I had no intension of loosing to the jerk, so a few "precautionary measures" were in order. 

Several lucky things came together for the 2nd in the Fox Hunt series. First, the talented people behind Venexia just opened a new role playing sim, Goatswood, with a Victorian England theme. The new group gift skin from Tableau Vivant I thought would make a great handsome devil. (Villains are so much fun to play!) During my search for a coat that could pass as Equestrian style, I came across the FATEwear Desmond coat that has a Regency feel to it if you remove the hood. I got a good pair of rigged mesh thigh high boots for riding at BareRose. Mr.Poet delivers ascot, shirt, and nice hat and hair with an English flare. I often need good grey eyes, but finding some that work for men is tricky, so turned to Poetic Colors with excellent results. The horse I am riding in this one is actually a wearable one, so you can take it anywhere, no need to rez. But let me take a moment to gush about my posing partner. Isn't she smashing in +RokumeikaN+? Any ladies role playing at the Goatswood sim, I highly recommend you make a visit to RMK Gothic and get some great looks for your role play. The lassitude and ennui knee high victorian boots are also a great addition for Victorian theme outfits for the ladies.

Fox Hunt Rivalry 2

(click to enlarge)
This Fox Hunt is a game of hide and seek. The winner is the person who tags the fox first. We were running hard on the fox's trail, when a shoe became loose on my horse Artemis. We had made an emergency stop at the blacksmith. Suddenly a snake slithered up and spooked her. She reared up and screamed, hooves flying. Luckily, I was not on her at the time, that could have hurt if I was thrown! After Artemis calmed down, we rejoined the fox hunt. The fox was a wily one. I found it hiding on the roof of the horse stables. We gave chase and finally "tagged" it. I hung the trophy in Artemis' stall. There was a very pretty lady in a purple dress waiting for me there. She invited me to have tea with her. It was a grand day!

This picture series was inspired by the Fox Hunt at the new sim Helping Hoof-Virtual Equine Therapy (or HHVET). The fox hunt was a lot of fun. I really got into creating the look! There are some great fashion possibilites for men in the Equestrian style. The Tableau Vivant Boot Pants were a perfect match. I am so happy to finally have an elegant styled pant that works with a tall boot. From Hoorenbeek, the Riding Boots are a must, and the Velvet Blazer reminds me of an Oxford schoolboy. BlakOpal provides the shirt, ascot, and vest. BlakOpal also has 2 more excellent free Victorian style outfits for men: Hawkesworth Outfit - Brown and Hawkesworth Outfit - Black. The Hunting Whip finishes off the look. It's awesome and authentic.

Premium: Orville

(click to enlarge)
"No, dont leave me!" she cried and ran after me. Before I could take off, she lunged at my plane. I could not believe my eyes when I saw this crazy lady had grabbed onto the wing! But it was too late to slow down, the wheels were already off the runway. The added weight caused the plane to dip dangerously to the side. I almost crashed in the ocean! ...And that was tamest thing that happened in the next 30 minutes of the Silver Baron's Wild Ride.  lol

The new premium gift has been released, a very cool World War 1 airplane. It's easy to fly. Sounds great. It seats one, but your buddies can also ride by hanging on for dear life on the wing. lol  You can take off the new premium Orville airport and fly over several connecting premium lands. The hangers and air traffic control tower are also in a 1920s style. Many people were there today. It was like a spontaneous air show. Cool!

Good news! If you are not a premium member, or if your membership will expire sometime before now and the new year, there is a sale for 50% on the quarterly membership. Read here for more details: Take-to-The-Skies-of-Second-Life

The Cinema: A Star is Born

(click to enlarge)
When you're a reporter, sometimes the news breaks fast and there's no time to shave or even iron your shirt. The news waits for no one. So when I heard I there's a hot new starlet in town for a big movie premier, I grabbed a hat and camera and zoomed out the door. But I was in for a shock. This hot new leading lady is not lady at all, she walks on all fours! She's an exotic animal, a Fennux. When I attempted to ask a few questions, she just jumped in my arms, purred, squeaked, and meeped. If only all stars were as cute and cuddly, my job would be so much easier.

The Cinema is an all mesh sim. Inside you can get free movie snacks, and journey through seven theaters in genres such as: SciFi, Romance, Horror, Film Noir, and XXX. All items on sale are new items created for the event from 80 different stores! I really wish this event lasted longer because October has been crazy busy for me. The Cinema tends to be crowded and laggy, so go in a low lag outfit. Cinema ends today. Run go check it out.

The limited edition 3D Fennux Grabber is free at the Cinema with group join. Go the Fennux sim to get the free Pick grabbers, collect all 5. I have been doing the beta of the fens. They are really cute. Public demo and dueling of Fennex will start the first of November. For more information, go to: Fennux.com

UPDATE: Public Beta of Fennux is now live. 11/5  Fennux.com

Halloween Burlesque

(click to enlarge)
Time for the sexier side of Halloween. Guerilla Burlesque's Halloween show is Wednesday Oct 31st at 11:45 pm SL. Be dazzled and amazed by the girl's clever costumes, concepts, stages, and live theater special effects. Come in your Halloween costume, but be low-lag and ready for live streaming music. The show is being held in a special Halloween theater that includes a cool haunted maze, very challenging. Can you find your way out? For more information go to: idlerogue.blogspot.com

For my outfit, I pieced together a look with "Halloween Burlesque" in mind. Included in the image are  two hunts I haven't mentioned before that have some goodies for the guys: DeadCool Fashion Event and tGk Stamp Rally. DeadCool's 13 Ghosts of Halloween Hunt is spread across the entire Halloween sim, and there is a second mini Haunted House Hunt for shoes. Many designers are all gathered in this one place for your Halloween shopping needs. For more information, go to: deadcoolhalloween.wordpress.com If you loved the Masks of Mystery Hunt at Gay Riveria, dont miss tGk Stamp Rally. The hunt is on the same sim as the adult Vitamen store. For more information and prize previews, go to tou-gen-kyo.blogspot.jp ...oh and one more thing. Why use a flying broom when you can whack your friends with a fighting broom instead? Check out this fun freebie at Tala's.

Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!

(click to enlarge)
Though I know I should be weary, still I venture someplace scary.
Ghostly haunting I turn loose, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!


OMG guys, this is the most awesome Halloween costume from Death Row Designs! The head is a great likeness of Beetlejuice from the movie but it's slightly larger, so reminds me of a Halloween mask. I love it. When I made an appearance as Beetlejuice at "Resting Place," I was an instant celebrity. lol. It's Halloween done right. There are 2 mesh heads, normal and smiling, and also a skin texture version you can wear on your shape without the head.

Death Row has many excellent full avatars ready to go right out the box, and many accessories to help piece together a kickass Halloween costume. Keep checking the lucky chairs and slap those Midnight Mania boards. There is also a Mini-Hunt for 24 pumpkins with prizes from all the stores on the DRD sim. Some pumpkins are decoys, so if you find a empty pumpkin, keep looking. Death Row just announced a photography contest too. Swing by DRD and bask in the Halloween coolness.
