Gentlemen, Start Your Engines....

Like a game. A race to snatch stuff before time's up. We dont really believe in over-thinking things, just go with a gut instinct, (and whatever is available). Here in SecondLife, we can practice our fine craft without getting stuck in traffic or chased down by perfume snippers in the malls. The goodies are free. We teleport, click, and BOOM! Done. Merry Christmas to all!

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:
+Lo*momo+, : c.A. :: chocolate atelier, World's End Garden, ***Ambrosia***, +:+WTG+:+, Wretched Dollies, HPMD, SAKIDE, Down Down Down, FROZEN NIGHT, Bubblez Design, Dark Midday Designs, poche, [ni.ju], :::Dimbula Rose:::, Air, +SC+SugarCoat, +:::+Natural+:::+, :NuDoLu:, Fairy Tail, SOUP, La Petite fleur, Kyoko Couture, +RokumeikaN+, +Theater Chain+
