We are very proud and honored to present the first Passion Halloween Event on Oct. 31st, 1.00 pm SLT.

The skeleton’s clattering form:
And pale was his visage, and thick came his breath;
The garb, alas! why did he touch?
How sick grew his soul as the garment of death
The skeleton caught in his clutch -
The moon disappeared, and the skies changed to dun,
And louder than thunder the church-bell tolled one -
The spectre fell tumbling to bits!

The Fashion Teller: Seven Deadly Sins +GLUTTONY+

THE FASHION TELLER

Presents:

SEVEN DEADLY SINS:

GLUTTONY

A sin of over-indulgence and over-consumption of anything to the point of waste. It is considered a sin because of the excessive desire for food, or its withholding from the needy.

Anna Sapphire, the Ruler of the Vampires, dispersed fear and destruction throughout Transylvania with her ravenous appetite for blood. The kingdom was covered in blood for weeks until a revolution arose.

Corset, Chest, Spine and Necklace: Wicca Inspiration Set
Arm Bracelet and Skulls: Harsch Inspiration Set
Shoulder Jewelry: Shena Inspiration Set

INFO: I first debut this outfit during the FINESMITH INSPIRATION MODEL SEARCH contest a few months ago. I usually don’t enter contests anymore but this was an exciting one because I can use FINESMITH jewelry creatively and do my own styling. There were so many contestants applying and the contest ran for three days. I knew I had to stand out because contrary to what people may believe, having a name and experience in SL can be a disadvantage because people usually expects more from you every time. If you fall short of the expectations, some people will be very critical. BUT that usually doesn’t bother me. Lord knows I’ve been bashed to the extreme before many times, I’m still here standing. My advice to anyone entering a contest is to BE YOURSELF and HAVE FUN. Enjoy the experience.

Thank you to the FINESMITH team for the experience. Thank you to Frolic Mills, Kay Fairey and BVLD agency as well for letting me show this outfit for the BOSL Fashion week during the Superheroes and The Closing Finale Shows.

………………………………………..
Crisis in the Horn of Africa:
Drought in the Horn of Africa, coupled with conflict in Somalia, has affected over 13 million people.
Thousands of children, women and men are dieing everyday as a result of starvation.

The United Nations World Food Program (WFP) is at the forefront of dealing with this crisis and is mounting food operations in five countries in the region (Somalia, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Kenya and Uganda).

It is our goal to raise awareness and money for this incredible crisis that has not had the kind of attention other human tragedies have garnered to date.

All in-world donations will be made to a special avatar, “HornOfAfricaCrisis Resident,” who’s sole purpose is to receive in-world donations and turn them over to the WFP. The WFP has a Paypal account as does this Avatar. All SL transactions and all Paypal transactions will be published on a blog for all to view.

Pop Art Lab presents its first ever photography contest in Second Life™

17th- 31st October 2011

Music and photography have always been natural artistic partners. Think of all the seminal musical moments in history captured through a lens: the concert performances, candid shots of rock stars behaving badly and behind the scenes images that show rock n roll history in all its gritty glory.

It’s up to you to decide what is in your shot, but the Pop Art Lab sim must be shown in some way. Apart from this, the creativity is all yours!

http://slurl.com/secondlife/Pop%20Art%20Lab/152/163/28

3)    Take any type of image you like. There is no restriction on themes and you can include avatars, props etc. The only thing we ask is that some part of the Pop Art Lab sim is featured in your work and is clearly visible

4)    Upload your shot to the Pop Art Lab flickr group, with your name and any other information in the description box.

http://www.flickr.com/groups/popartlab/

Champagne! Sparkling Fashion New Release: Volatile

VOLATILE Purple

Champagne! Sparkling Fashion

MODEL : Saleena Hax

Ladies, if you are looking for that perfect haute couture elegant Halloween gown, look no further! CHAMPAGNE! Sparkling Fashion’s latest
release, VOLATILE, fits the bill to perfection!

VOLATILE is reminiscent of the 1960′s classic Alfred Hitchcock movie, “The Birds,” evident in the black feathering featured on this dramatic and chic gown. VOLATILE comes in black, red, purple, and blue, each color bold and brilliant.

The gown itself is sleeveless, form fitting, and flatters your figure to the max. In a true “mermaid” type design, the slim-fitting silhouette gown flares out just below the knee to the floor, with layers of delicate chiffon in perfect harmony with your every movement. The revealing bodice is accentuated with black feather “wings” and brilliant white diamonds which are repeated at the waistline as well.

Additional black feathering lie atop each shoulder and are connected with large sparkling white diamonds placed at the edges.

The lovely Miss Ireland 2012, Saleena Hax, appears on our vendor ads for VOLATILE.

VOLATILE is a gown that surrounds the woman who wears it in a veil of mystery and sophisticated elegance. And although perfect for a
Halloween party or ball, its classic design allows you to wear this one year-round.
