Fabulous Virtual Jewelry for Ladies & Gents!

Designing Worlds at the Relay for Life Weekend – now on the web!

Original post @ Prim Perfect.

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – where we look back at the stunning builds that we saw at the Relay for Life of Second Life weekend at the end of July – is now on the web.

Sadly, we only had time to visit a few of the great builds, and talk to a small number of the talented creators behind them – we just wish we could have shown everything. Thankfully, our wonderful photographer Wildstar Beaumont was on hand to ensure that we have many more on our slide show!

Spice up your life!

Original post @ Big Boobie Babes.

Hello darlings!
Yesterday, the Spice up your life Hunt started and oh boy am I excited!
I was a huge fan of Spice Girls as a kid, I knew all their songs by heart and
definitely identified very much with Baby Spice, of course, I’m blonde after all. ;-)

This hunt runs until Sept 30th, it’s not free, but the hunt prize is only 2$ L.
You can read more and see previews and hints on the hunt page here.

So anyway, our very own Tara of Pink Sugah is number 2 in this hunt and she has made
the most awesome gift! You will find no less than four (!) dresses in this smack-full gift box.
Apparently Tara was unable to come up with anything Sporty and I very much respect that. As a
designer, you should make what you want. If you don’t feel inspired, it won’t turn out good anyway.
She did do a great job on the other four girls though. And I got really inspired and 
tried to sort of channel each girl in these pictures. Did I mention I really loved Spice Girls?

Appliers for all but Baby Spice: Tango, Phat Azz, Brazilia, Ghetto Booty, WowMeh, Lena Lush

First up, Posh Spice! I guess the only one of them that is still really famous, and only because 
she married David Beckham. Classic silvery dress with plunging neckline for Victoria.

Then we have, Scary Spice! I always thought that was bit unfair. Who wants to be known as scary?
Mel B was usually dressed in animal print and here’s Tara’s take on it. The nip slip is totally intentional.
((Psst! This skin is still free as part of the HTH prize at Lumae!))

Ginger Spice! The only real spice among the nicknames. ;-) Geri left the band in 1998, but returned
for the reunion tour in 2007. She was often seen wearing the British flag, with or without glitter.
And last, Baby Spice! She didn’t have as iconic wear as the others, but was always 
dressed very cute, often in pink. Almost always had her blonde hair in pigtails.
Please note, this dress is mesh, and as such, only has appliers for Tango.

Yes, Designing Worlds is back for a whole new season – and we’re inviting you to to join us today, Monday 8th September at 2pm SLT at the Designing Worlds studio in Garden of Dreams as we look back at the stunning builds that we saw at the Relay for Life of Second Life weekend at the end of July.

Sadly, we only had time to visit a few of the great builds, and talk to a small number of the talented creators behind them – we just wish we could have shown everything. Thankfully, our wonderful photographer Wildstar Beaumont was on hand to ensure that we have many more on our slide show!

Wildstar and Saffia were both thrilled to be awarded two of the first ever Community Champion Awards at the Wrap Up for this year’s Relay for Life of Second Life. The other recipients of this award were Stingray Raymaker and Daniel Voyager. Saffia says: “That’s very awesome company for me to be keeping! I was so privileged to receive this award – working with Relay for Life of Second Life is not just a pleasure, it’s a privilege.”

Saffia also won another award – Smell the Roses – The Clown Awards – for her Twerking for a Cause. This was a moment at the telethon captured by Petlove Petshop. She was wearing my dinkie avatar (a cute little cat) for one of the hours and someone mentioned the fact that Saffia could twerk as a dinkie. So it was agreed that if the telethon team raised 10,000 Lindens (the Second Life virtual currency – it would be about US440) by the top of the hour, the dinkie would twerk. By the top of the hour, people watching the telethon had donated a total of 22,000 lindens (around US$ 900) and … the dinkie twerked.

And in other video news, Elrik and Saffia were challenged to the Ice Bucket challenge by Nikki Mathieson. You can see the results below!

Saffia and Elrik decided to donate their challenge to the charity Water Aid. Saffia says – “Here in the UK, it’s become customary to choose which charity to donate your Ice Bucket challenge to. While we are both supportive of the work done by ALS, we decided that we would like to raise awareness of a charity connected with clean water – something we wish as a blessing for people at the end of every Designing Worlds show. We’re therefore making our donation to Water Aid – and you can read here about the impact that Ice Bucket Challenges are having on the work of this vitally important nonprofit. And we’re proud to say no real water was wasted in our taking the challenge!*”

This is a fun and beautiful start to our new season – make sure that you don’t miss it!

Or – if you can’t attend in person – tune in to the web at 2pm SLT on Monday for a showing on SLartist or on Treet – or catch it later in the week on our shows page on the Treet.tv web site at http://treet.tv/shows/designingworlds, on the SLArtist.com channel, the Aview TV Designing Worlds channel – or on the Designing Worlds blog.

Relay for Life Weekend starts today!

Today, at 10am, the fantastic weekend of events that marks the climax of the 2014 season starts.

Relay For Life is the signature event of the American Cancer Society and has been active, and continually growing, now in Second Life for 10 years.

  • In 2005, the first Relay For Life of Second Life (RFL of SL) was attended by a few hundred avatars and raised almost $ 5,000 US dollars for the American Cancer Society.
  • In 2009 the Relay For Life of Second Life raised over $ 270,000. US dollars and was attended by thousands of avatars.
  • In 2011 the Relay For Life of Second Life raised over US$ 375,000 and ran right past the US$ 1,000,000 mark during the 2011 campaign!
  • In 2012 the Relay For Life of Second Life raised over US$ 375,000, taking the total raised since 2005 to over US$ 1,600,000 by the end of our 2012 fundraising season.
  • And in 2013, Relay for Life of Second Life, in a thrilling climax to the Relay weekend, crossed the 2,000,000 mark!

This year the plan is to raise US$ 401,000 – i.e. 401K. That figure represents a huge task – we started the weekend at 382,000.  The significance of the number is that 401 is the tax form that mark retirement in the United States – the plan is to RETIRE CANCER!

The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe (and in Second Life) a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, to remember loved ones lost, and to fight back against the disease.

Relay Weekend  is a fun-filled, overnight event that unites SL individuals throughout the world to celebrate survivors (anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer), remember loved ones and raise money for the fight against cancer.

And the TV channels of Second Life are coming together to produce a twenty-four telethon to cover this event, which you can watch on slartist.com.

  • The Telethon is covering the 24 hours of Relay. Live coverage is from 9am – 10pm (including the Luminaria ceremony at 9pm) on Saturday 19th, and from 6.00am till 11am on Sunday 20th, plus  on Saturday.
  • During that time, we’ll bring you news of the Relay from our studio – with information about all the events that are going on, together with trackside interviews with teams and sim designers.
  • And when we’re not live, we’ll be showing interviews with Chairs from the RFL Committee, classic clips from RFL history, and TV shows from Treet TV that have featured Relay for Life.

Designing Worlds discusses how to maintain Second Life as Linden Lab works on a new platform: Part 1 – now on the web!

Original post @ Prim Perfect.

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – where we have Part 1 of a discussion of Second Life’s continued viability and the ways in which Linden Lab might attract existing communities to their new platform – is now on the web.

We have a great panel of guests in this first part of the discussion – including Jessica Lyon, Project Manager of Firestorm, Jo Yardley, owner of 1920s Berlin, Maxwell Graf, owner of Rustica. JJ Drinkwater, Virtual and real life Librarian and Pathfinder Lester, Community Engagement specialist (and the ex-Pathfinder Linden).

The Discussion, photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

We don’t talk about the technical possibilities of the new platform; instead we’ll be focus on what needs to be done to keep Second Life vibrant and alive … and, at the same time, what might persuade the residents of Second Life to make a commitment to a new environment – and some of the answers may be surprising!

Make sure you catch Part 2 of this show at 2pm today, Monday 21st July!

Relay for Life Weekend is over – but you still have chance to visit the regions!

Original post @ Prim Perfect.

Relay for Life Weekend is over =- but you still have the chance to visit the 42 regions, which are expected to stay open for – at the very least – the early part of this week.

And believe me, it is well worth a visit! The teams have created some of the best camp-sites I have seen, with beauty, fun and information about cancer – often all in the same parcel!

In addition there are some stunning designer builds – and some great underwater builds too.

So don’t delay! You can start your journey at the Welcome Point, which has tons of information - but you can also just pull up the map and take your choice from all the sims whose name starts with RFL.  And you’ll see from the map that this year’s track was arranged in the shape of a ten – because Relay for Life of Second Life is now ten years old and – in terms of fundraising – it is now expected to be in the top 20 Relays for Life anywhere is the world for 2014.
