Suits

Hi everyone,

Here’s a late post for the new business suit from Epicosity! Enjoy! (Note – I’ll be closing the casting earlier as we’ve already hit full house, thanks for the tremendous support!!)

I love it when the end of the year comes. After 11 months of hard work, I can finally take time to relax and move at a much slower pace. As I’ll be away in Dec, I would like to wish everyone happy holidays! <3

Sports in motion

Hi all,

Sorry for the delay,I decided to post this one a bit late. Was thinking of what photo concept to do and I was inspired by the 2005 Hugo Boss (Boss in motion) perfume TV commercial featuring Will Chalker. 2005 was a break out year for Will Chalker when he walked the 2005 Dolce & Gabbana S/S 2005 menswear show carrying a baby tiger.

Enjoy the look!

Hi everyone,

For those of you who know me well would know that I usually don’t wear tattoos or do gangster looks. However, this post is an exception as I was inspired by one of Jay-Z’s video. The main item I’m blogging in this post is the new mesh vest.

After watching the video and thinking about what pieces to match it with, I decided to style it slightly differently than how people would normally style it. Enjoy!

Hi all,

It’s with great pleasure to announce this combined post with Jade Spectre, who is in the running to try to become this year’s Miss Virtual World (Portugal) 2013.

Jade is someone who has a kind and helpful heart. When I passed the Egoisme casting, I was honestly a bit scared about the whole process because I didn’t expect to pass with a lot of other already well-established models participating in the casting.

During the casting, we were suppose to have a shape change, yet, remain and look most ourselves but also to the liking and acceptability of Ramses (our boss).

It was pretty confusing to me initially but Jade was always nice and patient to explain things I didn’t understand Ramses wanted (lol).

Here we are, both styling in Gizza’s matching Vintage outfits. Enjoy!

Looking forward to seeing you again

Hey everyone,

I’ll be spending Xmas week in Japan. What I love most about the Japanese culture is their hospitality and courtesy, you’ll always feel welcomed and they are always so polite. I feel very humbled whenever I spend time with them. Pictures will be taken and shared with my SL family. Looking forward to seeing my Japanese friends in Tokyo, we’ll snowboard like there’s no tomorrow! lol

Enjoy the look!

Reflecting 2012

Hey everyone,

Met up with my real life group of friends today for lunch and coffee. We started talking about how all of us have grown and what we have all achieved in the past 15 years since we first met. In life, people come and go but true friends and family are always the ones who will stay with you in good, awesome, bad and horrible times.

This year of 2012 alone, reflecting back since January till now, I really have so much to be thankful and happy for.

Real life friends —– Acke, Beatrice, Bjoern, Charlotta, Dorotea, Elisabeth, Esbjorn, Freja, Gottfrid, Henrik, Josef, Kristina, Lars and Milly.

Thanks for being there for me since we first met. Thanks for introducing me to SecondLife and a bigger thank you for persuading me to come back to it beginning of this year after a full long break from it of 18 months. Both real life and SecondLife have been awesome with you guys. Love that we’re able to get together in real life to joke and laugh about all the stupid things people do in SecondLife lol. We know who we are in real life and don’t have to prove anything to anyone in that virtual world, that is what makes us special. I know you guys read and have been introducing my blog to other friends as well ever since I told you guys about it. The increase in hits on my blog stats has been amazing, honestly I never expected such results because this SecondLife “modeling” thing is just a side hobby for me. A big thank you nonetheless. Vänner för livet!!  <3

SecondLife family —–  Jade, Rico, Edi, Natti, Absi, Mikey, Ramses, Sachy, Badon, Kiana, Chirz, Magissa.

My wonderful family that I have in SecondLife, thanks for all the love and support you’ve shown me. My SecondLife wouldn’t have been the same without all of you. Thanks for believing in me <3

SecondLife photographers – Badon, Hyeri, Ivoni, Priscila, Peace, Asia, Pam.

Many thanks for your professionalism and always delivering works of your best efforts. I know it takes time away from your real life schedules and family to help do photos for me, really appreciate from the bottom of my heart <3

As of this month and December, I’ll be extremely busy with real life work and will be having my end-of-yr vacation during Xmas week while Stan, my trust-worthy club manager, handles it from there till the start of 2013 lol

A calm mind enables money making decisions

Hey everyone,

As the end of the year approaches where more and more people take their one month vacations and throw lots of parties, this is where I’m busiest with my RL work. Past 2 week alone, I’ve organized and host 3 major parties at my club. It’s really satisfying though, to see people enjoy the theme and activities I came up with for their 3 respective parties and the net profit I get from these parties is just so wonderful. (Also got to meet more hot women LOL)

Anyway, here is a style which I came up with ages ago. I’ve got all the photos of my styles stored on my laptop but I’ll be taking my sweet time blogging them. It’s almost end of the year after all ;) Enjoy the look!

Hello everyone,

This look is to show you guys how 1 piece of clothing is able to make the whole style look a lot better even if you pair the rest of the pieces with the same color, in this case, the color black. Enjoy!

I would like to personally thank Wicca Merlin, who decided to cast for my magazine as she supported my main objective. The main objective was to be a magazine which showcases the styling talents of Secondlife Residents, models(current and/or new) AND non-models.

Wonder why Clem, Miaa and YeriakTH are styled this way? Stay tuned to find out…

Deeper into Autumn

Hey everyone,

Carrying on with posts of stylings, here’s one for those who are living in Europe. Time to wear a slightly thicker outer coat made of genuine wool to protect yourselves from the 0°C to -7°C chilly winds and (in some countries), random days of sudden snowfall. Enjoy the look!

When night falls

Hello everyone,

Really pleased to show you the latest release from House of Rfyre. This piece is just so beautifully made. To me it’s one of the best jackets I’ve seen so far, it being close to formal wear but with an artistic twist. A MUST have for sure! I decided to pair it up with other pieces, to make it more MY style.

Enjoy the look!
