What to Wear by the Avatars of Second Life- Tea Couturier Reporting..

In Second Life we can easily see what avatars like to wear but to actually know what they are actually wearing in SL you have to ask them.

So that is what I did. I hopped around different sims across the grid looking at what people wore and asking them what stores they love to shop at.

The Original PopRocks Music Club :Poppin’ at PopRocks- Ccoursey Reporting…





The Original PopRocks Music Club is a small club I happened to come up on one night looking for something to do.  I was drawn in by the flashy colors and stayed for the friendly, relaxed atmosphere

 BonappetitLaTease should be a proud owner of her small establishment.  There’s something to catch the eye on every wall.  From the neon colors to the pictures of old movies and stars, it is a fun club.

 Not only because of the people, it is the atmosphere itself. Poprocks is the perfect size for a club. It is small enough to keep conversation flowing through the whole room and large enough that you are not bumping into the other patrons.

Meet the Talented Criss Fredriksson- Tea Couturier Reporting...



In Second Life we all have our favourite performer who we go to listen to when we are logged in and want to relax listening to some good music.  Criss Fredriksson is one of those performers. With a growing fan base Criss is gaining strength and momentum and becoming a household name within the SL music industry. 

You know he's good if he stopped Lanai in her tracks.

I wanted to know how it all started for Criss in SL, so sat down with him between rehearsals to find out.

The CTS Wardrobe: Visual Clothing and Inventory Organizer- DoctorKaren Kanto Reporting…




Full disclosure: I have owned the CTS Wardrobe from Carlyle Theas
Solutions for many years now, and find it to be a most valuable utility,
second only to my AO. I am often on the Wardrobe support group helping
people accomplish their goals with the Wardrobe. I love the thing.







Simply put, the CTS Wardrobe is a device for seeing, organizing and
wearing clothes and other items from your inventory. It solves the problem
of "What does that piece of clothing look like?" by creating a visual
inventory, readily accessible from in-world.

The 5th Anniversary Sunburst Blazin1.FM Caribbean Carnival Has Expanded..Again!


Sunburst Premier Grid Entertainment in conjunction with TheBlazin1.fm radio hosts its annual Caribbean carnival, and celebrating the 5th year anniversary of producing this event for the Second Life residents. 





The events begin on Wednesday, August 28, 2013 and conclude with the main Caribbean carnival on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at multiple locations.

Our 2nd press release is a little late but full of details. 

SPOTLIGHT FEATURE: SICK BUBBLEGUM TEXTURES- Lanai Jarrico Reporting…



Textures in Second Life are not only a big deal to builders but they play a huge role in creating the atmosphere for any location in the virtual world as well as aid in personal style. 

Everywhere we look, there are textures used to add character to any object. From detailed builds to the clothes your avatar wears, textures make it all possible.  Mauve Binder is a seasoned texture creator that has been in Second Life for over 6 years. Her creative designs are proudly displayed at her shop; Sick Bubblegum Textures. The SL Enquirer met up with Mauve to talk about her textures and what inspires her unique designs.



Interview with Mauve Binder

Technology: Second Life (C) on Text-based Viewers – Stareyes Galaxy Reporting...

Metabolt Chat Screen

There are times when an avatar, logging on, is restricted to low-bandwidth connections. Mobile laptop connections, firewall issues, or just plain choice may be the deciding factors to switch to a non-graphic viewer. Fortunately, the Second Life third-party viewer (TPV) list includes such gems as METAbolt ® and Radegast ®.

Sometimes one has to make a choice whether to log on at all, or to use text-only viewers. One of the earliest text-only viewers was the famous AjaxLife that was developed by then 15-year-old Katharine Berry and gained wide popularity until it fell by the wayside, probably due to the demands of the upkeep. Today, the TPV list has two text-only viewers, METAbolt and Radegast.

Introducing Style Kingdom Magazine©: A Fresh New Look into Second Life Fashion- Lanai Jarrico Reporting…


 Fashion is defined as a popular trend in the style of one’s attire and even manner.  
In the 19th century, fashion houses began to emerge, usually created by male designers like Charles Frederick Worth who was the first designer to sew his label on garments he created. 
 In the 20th century, most high fashion was originating from Paris and trickled into London. In the same century, Fashion magazines with photography became very popular in different countries. These publications would send their editors to Paris fashion shows. This gave rise to department stores that would purchase the latest fashions being showcased, stealing the designs, recreating and selling them at different locations. Fashion magazines were responsible for influencing the wide spread of fashion trends and effecting public taste.

Today, fashion design has become a competitive art form and is part of many of our daily lives and what sets us apart from others. It is a big deal in Second Life just as it is in the real world.  Without this form of creativity, people just like avatars would dress alike and it would be difficult for them to show their personal style. From high fashion couture, formal, casual and active to urban, beachwear, footwear, hair, accessories and fantasy garments; Second Life has a large selection of things to wear. What adds to personal style is attitude to pull off whatever we put together for a unique ensemble.


Dougie Boxen is CEO and publisher of Style Kingdom©. For a considerably new fashion publication, it currently boasts over 1000 reads so far for its latest issue.  SK is a non-profit magazine that aims to showcase the best styling talents in Second Life. August marks Style Kingdom’s 4th issue. Each issue includes a note from the editor, gorgeous models, new faces in fashion, creative photography and descriptions of the latest trends available in Second Life.

The SL Enquirer sat down with Dougie Boxen to learn more about him and his new contribution to SL’s Fashion world.

Where Fantasy Meets Reality- Talking To The Creators Of The White Armory In SL ©- Colton Drechsler & Bee Dumpling – Orchids reports….




Make Fantasy Your Reality

We invite you to take a journey back to a time of the Knights...ack to a time of the Knights...
♦ 
Of Ladies and Hero's...Jousting and combat... Honor and nobility...


Quests and conquering... Realms and Royalty

-      The White Armory


It is not always possible in RL to live out fantasies. But being in SL gives that outlet to us all. Historical re-enactment have been practiced for millennia. The ancient Romans, Han Chinese, and medieval Europeans all enjoyed occasionally organizing events in which everyone pretended to be from an earlier age. The White Armory is a place where historical and medieval times come alive. They have been here for 5 years and now plan to bring the fantasy into real life too!

Second Life is made up of different people from around the world, who come together in SL and create a community where we live, work and socialize together. 

We also form bonds as family and friends.  Second Life is a place to create a world for ourselves where anything is possible.



I wanted to know and hear it from the people who live in SL about their views on Second Life and what made them join. First I spoke to Mr Zeke Canucci with his wife. They were looking for a new house.

Gaming in SL: Vegas in Second Life- Piers Diesel Reporting...





Second life as long as I can remember has had a gaming culture. There have been place where you can gamble and win Lindens and sometimes lose Lindens. That is what makes it a gamble.  Casinos are illegal in Second Life and have been banned but there are places that you can still participate in gaming that does not go against the TOS.
Whatever your views are on this activity in Second Life, to make SL a world which equals Real life in certain aspects, contests of chance where you can win money, is very popular in Second Life and will always be.


 To find out what kind of money was being played at these venues, I went down to 3 different types of gaming facilities, offering different lay outs and unique games.

Adventures of Snake VII- Ccoursey Reporting…





            We had started our family, our clan, and things were coming together.  Kimber was awesome.  Snake showed a bit of interest in her, but Poet stepped in and stomped that…  That ended up backfiring and Kimber and Poet became a bit more than friends.  ::Sighs::  I think that was the point where Snake decided we should be more than friends.  He started getting friskier and more free with his comments.  We would take the two out hunting, shopping, or spend a bit teaching them about the club.  I was usually with Poet and Kimber with Snake.  I loved them.  I am tenderhearted anyway, but I became attached fast, because they were as excited about everything as I was.  We had very little in common, but it was the fact we were taking the journey of Second Life together and relying on each other that bonded us.

From Boot Hill to the OK Corral- Jenna Odisark Reporting…


  

Throughout Second Life you’ll find many opportunities for immersing yourself into another time, place or situation… called ‘role play’. 
One of the genre’s that is quite popular is putting yourself into the Old West. When thinking of that time period one of the first places that comes to mind is Tombstone with its historic real life legends and stories. Tombstone has been the subject in an untold number of books, TV shows, movies… and even before then had been the setting for dozens and dozens of what was known as “Dime Novels” which were the comic books of early America.

RA YA Designs is Taking Mesh to the Next Level- Piers Diesel Reporting...


In Second Life mesh has come leaps and bounds from clothing, shoes and hair to furniture houses and accessories.
However, there is something I discovered which uses mesh in another format that is very clever; mesh avatar models!
 You may have seen them around the grid. They can be in the shape of an avatar on the floor, draped over chairs or objects. Their appearance is very realistic and attention to detail has definitely not been spared. To me this has taken mesh out of the norm and to a whole new level.
To find out a bit more about the creator of RA YA Designs, I contacted Ryan3D Resident to tell me a bit about these mesh models and also about himself.

DEXLER CLUB CLOSES ON SECOND LIFE Nomads Aries Reporting…




July 25th, 2013 was a very sad day for some Second Life residents. It was the day the Dexler Club closed its doors. In SL, clubs come and go frequently and many venues fall by the wayside. A club's closing is not uncommon.

 Dexler was a well established and long running club. If you have been in SL for some time, no doubt you have heard of the Dexler Club.

The Dexler club was owned by Karina Dexler and began in 2009. It wasn't long after that, Dexler took its place as one of the strongest, most professional clubs in the virtual world of SL. The club had a regular spot in the Destinations Guide; their traffic was “real traffic”, never padded by bots. Their music was varied; their djs and hosts were international and always professional. The staff treated everyone and each other with respect, politeness and kindness. Dexler ran like a well oiled machine 24 hours a day, 7 days a week until July 25th 2013.

Sunburst Premier Entertainment- The 5th Anniversary of Sunburst Blazin1.FM Caribbean Carnival- August 28-31st

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Shon Larsson, Owner/CEO
Sunday, August 11, 2013



Plans Underway for The 5th Anniversary Sunburst Blazin1.FM Caribbean Carnival
Sunburst Premier Grid Entertainment in conjunction with TheBlazin1.fm radio hosts its annual Caribbean carnival, and celebrating the 5th year anniversary of producing this event for the Second Life residents.  The events begin on Wednesday, August 28, 2013 and conclude with the main Caribbean carnival on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at multiple locations.

The Sunburst Caribbean carnivals began in 2008 when I noticed there were hardly any celebrations during the weeks of carnival in Second Life.  Since that time for the next 4 consecutive years, the staff of Sunburst Premier Ent. with the support of some of the most thoughtful and generous sponsors on the grid, have produced a day long full Caribbean carnival to the enjoyment of hundreds of SL residents to date.   Oohlala Sassoon, Owner of Ooh-La-La Skins responded when asked why does she want to sponsor this event: "Blazin' 1 FM has done so much over the years to contribute to bring Caribbean cultural awareness to Second Life, and it just makes sense to sponsor an organization that has shown this much longevity. I salute Shon's work and it just made sense to participate."

A Baker’s Dozen of Stareryes Galaxy’s Articles


A baker’s dozen is said to be twelve of today’s bakeries and one of yesterdays. This time, as Stareyes looks back on the dozen articles she has written before today’s one, it’s the other way ‘round.

I am just an ordinary girl, out there on Second Life © (SL) on my own. I have always relied on the kindness of strangers, and luckily, I have been able to stay out of trouble. Idling away just isn’t my style, and I have always been eager to find purpose in my ventures in SL.
It took a little over three years on SL for me to find a job that matched my abilities. In the beginning, I had just a few modeling gigs after which my funds were dwindling slowly but steadily. Soon, I felt that doing hunts and scouting for freebies was not the best way to go about Second Life. I started writing in the beginning of May 2013 when the Editor of SLE, Lanai Jarrico hired me on a free-lance basis. Since the first article was published, I have not looked back – until today.
