MURDER, My Sweet

Scene 1: The Damsel

The night was hot and humid. The kind of night where everything sticks to your skin, including the constant outpouring of sweat. I sat quietly in my lousy office in a lousy part of a lousy town. Just another down on his luck detective with nothing left to lose. I would take a smoke from my cigar and slowly toy with it, twirling it between my fingers, stopping only as I exhale.

That’s when I saw her…the blond bombshell…pale skin, red lips, deep blue eyes with hair that matched the paleness of her skin. What caught my attention was her hands…dripping and covered in that red sticky fluid I knew so well. As she began to walk, I shot to my feet and ran towards her, thinking the blood was hers. In that moment, she dropped down to her knees, taking me with her. She said to me, her voice cracking and begging, “I’ve been incriminated, Help Me!!!”

THE LAST SAMURAI

MODEL: RicoRacer Flux

PHOTOGRAPHER: Editorial Clarity

LOCATION: Bryn Oh’s Imogen & the Pigeons Sim

FASHION:

BOW/SASH: DRIFT L’Bow 2 Red

SHIRT: 22769 Homme Asymmetric Shirt white/black trim

PANTS: SHI Drape Bermudas

LEGGINGS: SHI Luca Meggings Black

COLLAR JEWELRY: SHi Lacet Motif Collar

BOOTS: Hoorenbeek Mullingar

I had these items in my inventory for a long time now and today I was inspired to do a modern day Samurai. A man who is very brave and honorable. A man who will stand up for what’s right and will fight for love.

I love unique items…they always catch my eye like these asymmetric shirt by 22769. It is simple but the way its created just pops. I combined it with another unique creation from SHI called Drape Bermudas. To add a bit of color and drama, the red sash/bow is from DRIFT. I love the whole new look. I hope it will inspire you to create your own hero/heroine.

GLORY OF LOVE by Peter Cetera

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWHOF_0-6Hg

Tonight it’s very clear, as we’re both standing here,
There’s so many things I want to say.
I will always love you, I will never leave you alone.

Sometimes I just forget, say things I might regret,
It breaks my heart to see you crying.
I don’t want to lose you, I could never make it alone.

I am a man who would fight for your honor,
I’ll be the hero you’re dreaming of.
We’ll live forever, knowing together that we did it all for the glory of love.

You keep me standing tall, you help me through it all,
I’m always strong when you’re beside me.
I have always needed you, I could never make it alone.

I am a man who would fight for your honor,
I’ll be the hero you’re dreaming of.
We’ll live forever,knowing together that we did it all for the glory of love.

Just like a knight in shining armor from a long time ago.
Just in time I will save the day,
take you to my castle far away.

I am a man who would fight for your honor,
I’ll be the hero you’re dreaming of.
We’ll live forever,knowing together  that we did it all for the glory of love.
We’ll live forever, knowing together that we did it all for the glory of love.

WE DID IT ALL FOR LOVE.

We are the crowd, we’re c-coming out
Got my flash on, it’s true
Need that picture of you
It so magical, we’d be so fantastical

Leather and jeans, garage glamorous
Not sure what it means
But this photo of us it don’t have a price
Ready for those flashing light
‘Cause you know that baby, I

I’m your biggest fan, I’ll follow you until you love me
Papa, paparazzi
Baby, there’s no other superstar, you know that I’ll be
Your papa, paparazzi

Promise I’ll be kind
But I won’t stop until that boy is mine
Baby, you’ll be famous, chase you down until you love me
Papa, paparazzi

I’ll be your girl backstage at your show
Velvet ropes and guitars
Yeah, cause you’re my rock star in between the sets
Eyeliner and cigarettes

Shadow is burnt, yellow dance and we turn
My lashes are dry, purple teardrops I cry
It don’t have a price, loving you is my cherry pie
Cause you know that baby, I

I’m your biggest fan, I’ll follow you until you love me

Snap, snap to that shit on the radio
Don’t stop for anyone
We’re plastic but we still have fun

MANIERASL MEN OF STYLE 2013

THE HUNT IS ON!

BIGGER, bolder and sexier

Five of the sexiest men on the grid will appear on the MANIERASL Magazine February cover and receive a two-page magazine photo spread and bio. New this year, they will also be included in MANIERA’s 2013 calendar, plus on MANIERASL Magazine promotional material.

MANIERASL Magazine, Second Life’s top fashion and lifestyle magazine, is searching for five gorgeous guys who shine like gods to feature in our February 2013 Anniversary issue. We are looking for five men from various backgrounds and industries who can give us the TRIPLE THREAT: substance, style and sex appeal!

MANIERA Men of Style come from all backgrounds and in all varieties. They are models. They are writers. They are business owners. They are designers. They are DJs. They are roleplayers. They are explorers. They are activists. They are unique. These men come from all over the grid and walk like gods among the mere men on the SL® grid.

If you feel like you’re a man who can live up to this high standard then read the information below and be sure to enter. The judges at MANIERA are tingling with anticipation waiting for your entries!

~~~

When I won Maniera Magazine’s Men of Style back in 2009, I was only a few month’s old in SL and just discovered modeling. Winning this contest put my name in the spotlight and helped launched my modeling career. Most of all, winning this contest allowed me to meet many wonderful people especially my mentor and SL mom, Topaz Joubert. Thank you Maniera.

If you want to join the Maniera Magazine’s Men of Style 2013 contest, Read the instructions here: manierasl.mymaniera.com/maniera-sl-magazine/menofstyle/

The Hunt for this year’s MANIERA MEN OF STYLE is ON.

strip’d Fashion NEW JEANS!

So I probably shouldn’t say this, but what the heck…I hate making jeans. There, I said it and from what I have heard of other designers they don’t care for it much either. All the different parts, details, washes, rips, fabric, pockets, belt loops…ugh. Give me a dress or top any day and I will bag it out fantastically!

But I will digress.

People have been telling me for a good while now to make some jeans, so my thinking is, if you design it — they will come. SO COME ON AND BUY THEM!

ARTIST: Michael Jackson

I’m going to make a change for once in my life.
It’s gonna feel real good… Gonna make a difference, gonna make it right.
As I turned up the collar on my favorite winter coat, this wind is blowin’ my mind.
I see the kids in the street with not enough to eat. Who am I to be blind, pretending not to see their need?

A summer’s disregard, a broken bottle top and one man’s soul.
They follow each other on the wind ya know? ‘Cause they got nowhere to go, that’s why I want you to know. I’m starting with the man in the mirror. I’m asking him to change his ways. And no message could have been any clearer. If you wanna make the world a better place,
Take a look at yourself and then make a change.

~~~~~

There was a time in my SLife when all I did was live and breathe SL fashion and modeling. It was always about which awards and contests to win next, what agencies to get in, and which designers to work for, etc… Though I am extremely shy and reserved, I think I did pretty well and I have achieved all that I wanted to do. During my modeling journey, I had lost plenty of friends, made a few enemies and been through plenty of Ups & Downs but through it all, I was true to myself, I stood up for what I believed in and I did it my way without stepping on others back.

One day I woke up…

I realized that I had put so much importance and revolved my life on something that most likely won’t matter 10 years from now. Don’t get me wrong. I absolutely love fashion and I love being able to express my fashion and artistic style in Second Life, but I think the obsession and constant need for attention and obtaining these “awards/agencies” are just too much and not healthy. It makes me sad how people act in SL. Some “important” people act like “GODS” and think they can look down and control others just because they gained some success in a Virtual World.  Some resort to ass kissing, back stabbing, lying, cheating, cyber bullying and other childish behavior to get some attention and notoriety. I ask you…Is it worth it? Does it make you feel great and superior to treat other people badly? You might ask….Who the hell am I to judge? I will be the first to tell you that I am NOBODY. I am just another human being behind an avatar who has feelings and gets lonely sometimes, just like you and everyone else. And I am not judging, I’m just voicing my opinion through my experiences. I deeply believe in Karma and I will treat people as how they treat others no matter how “delusional” they might be about their SL importance.

Now enough of the negativity…. lol. I’m not completely emo, I promise. The best part of the SL Fashion World for me is the many wonderful friends I’ve met. There are truly many beautiful and kind people out there and I have the honor to call them my friends and mentors. They have given me a lot of opportunities to grow, supported me through everything and loved me for who I am. You all know who you are and I sincerely Thank you for being beautiful inside and out. My awesome hubby, Editorial Clarity and I have slowly moved away from SL Fashion these past few months though we both know fashion is part of us. We will continue to produce The Fashion Teller books as a means to express our fashion and artistic sides, and I will probably model from time to time I’m sure. I’ve tried to retire completely so many times but a little tiny voice is always calling me back especially when I am inspired. LOL. So….I guess I am semi-retied. ;p

Best Wishes to Everyone in Both Lives.

FASHION: Okay, I’m in an EMO mood and what better way to express it than to dress up in an ultra chic black outfit from one of my favorite stores: Tableu Vivant. They recently released a lot of cool new mesh items and I’m hooked. I love the simplistic style, yet it is unique and breathtaking the way they play with the shape and textures of their designs. For example: This Cossak trousers are just amazing the way it balloons at the top and tapers it down to the legs; the fabric just flows. Paired the look with a corset from Cheerno, gloves from Vero Modero and boots from Hoorenbeek. Make up by Nuuno adds a nice finishing touch to my EMO ensemble. Afterall If you are gonna be sad, LOOK FABULOUS!!!

SHIRT: Tableu Vivant – Net Shirt
SCARF: Tableu Vivant – Scarf Black
PANTS: Tableu Vivant – Cossak Trousers
CORSET: Cheerno – Deuil Mercury
GLOVES: Vero Modero -Elf Gloves

“Everybody Hurts”

When your day is long
And the night, the night is yours alone
When you’re sure you’ve had enough
Of this life, well hang onDon’t let yourself go
‘Cause everybody cries
And everybody hurts sometimesSometimes everything is wrong
Now it’s time to sing along
When your day is night alone (Hold on, hold on)
If you feel like letting go (Hold on)
If you think you’ve had too much
Of this life, well hang on

Everybody hurts
Take comfort in your friends
Everybody hurts
Don’t throw your hand, oh no

Don’t throw your hand
If you feel like you’re alone
No, no, no, you are not alone

If you’re on your own in this life
The days and nights are long
When you think you’ve had too much of this life to hang on

Well, everybody hurts sometimes
Everybody cries
Everybody hurts sometimes
And everybody hurts sometimes

So hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
Everybody hurts

JUST AS YOU ARE

MODEL: RicoRacer Flux
PHOTOGRAPHER: Antoinette Jordan
FASHION: Vitamen Underwear

You are enough, just as you are.
Each emotion you feel, everything in your life, everything you do or do not do…where you are and who you are right now is enough. It is perfect. You are perfect enough.

You are enough. There is nothing wrong with wanting more in this life but please stop comparing yourself to others. Just remember who you are, and the beautiful person inside you. Stop that negative self talk. You are beautiful and you are enough. I love you.

And because you are perfectly enough, please Smile. It makes a world of difference. Dance, who knows when you won’t be able to? Cry, holding those emotions inside is bad for you. Kiss, it is one of the most wonderful things in this world. Laugh, what is the point in hiding happiness? Frown, why not let them know you are unhappy? Apologize, you don’t want to lose friends. Hug, there is no better feeling than being wrapped up close to someone you love. Live because life is everything.

I never cared much about fame, fortune or power.
What I care the most is your beautiful soul and your heart full of love.
I love you ‘cuz You are YOU…unique and beautiful. JUST AS YOU ARE.

Starwalkers discontinues fashion calendar; blogger policy open forum in near future

Aug. 21, 2011

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

—————————————–
Starwalkers discontinues fashion calendar; blogger policy open forum in near future
—————————————–

As of Aug. 21, 2011, Starwalkers will be discontinuing its fashion calendar services. In truth, it was a very popular venture — at first — but the last few months businesses haven’t shown enough interest in the service for me to continue its upkeep.

Several of the entries the past few weeks have been me sorting through the notices and jotting things down, which is when it becomes too time consuming. I’m a firm believer that businesses should have a large hand in their own marketing and PR, and as a free service, the calendar isn’t seeing the amount of return that I can justify giving my time toward it at this point.

You can still submit press releases, event images and new release images to me for posting on Confessions of an SL Top Model — http://csltm.wordpress.com.  I will request our bloggers to link over to http://csltm.wordpress.com/starwalkers/ instead of our fashion calendar pending the blogger policy open forum….

NOW ON TO THE BLOGGER POLICY OPEN FORUM…………

There will be a STARWALKERS OPEN FORUM on BLOGGING POLICY at MODEL’S WORKSHOP in the month of September. The exact date will be announced by Sept. 1.

Bloggers are an asset in the SL fashion industry. However, the number of posts by Starwalkers bloggers — even at one a day — is beginning to drown out other types of postings from agencies, designers and media. A few people have told me they turn off notices because of this, and that becomes a problem because it defeats the purpose of the group.

However, before I make any decisions, I want to hear from our posters, our bloggers and our community as a whole on how they would like to see this handled or any suggestions they might have to contribute on how to better manage the blogging forum… So do consider coming out to the open forum.

Thanks. As always, questions can be directed to Nox Deigan.

FASHION and MUSIC: Born This Way by Lady Gaga Starring RicoRacer Flux

BORN THIS WAY

MODEL: RicoRacer Flux

PHOTOGRAPHER: Zachary Zufreur

INFO: This is my tribute to the song “Born This Way” by Lady Gaga. I love this song because it is about loving who you are and loving everyone who seems different in the eyes of society. YES, I purposely wore female clothing and accessories to prove a point. There has been some flak about male models wearing feminine items. I say WHO CARES? Be who you are and wear what you want. Express yourself and don’t let anyone put you down especially in SL where you should be free as long as you are not hurting others. Remember, the unique and extraordinary are what people remember and love the most. Ty to my sis Lovely for taking me shopping. LOL.

Menstuff Hunt is on now!

MENstuff Fashion Hunt
Fashion conscious men of Second Life? The hunt is on…..
June 3rd – July 3rd

http://slurl.com/secondlife/Maverick%20Design/210/157/22
================================================================
Starting on Friday 3rd June, Second Life ™ will see the largest and most exciting fashion and accessories hunt ever designed exclusively for male residents.
With over 150 of the grids top designers participating, this hunt will offer high quality free items designed for the fashion conscious man, so guys get ready for some cool new looks for the hot summer months!
Pay a visit to the main teleport area and you will find 60 free welcome gifts plus full details of how to join the group, and then set out across the grid to uncover the incredible items the designers have created-including bespoke items not available anywhere else.
This hunt has been produced by an all-star team and the management includes well known fashion industry leaders, so you are guaranteed only the very best, trend setting items.
There’s never been a better time to be a man in SL!  But what makes this hunt so different form all the others? Just ask some of the 7,500 members already in our group:

u43hr4play Lanley:  In a “world” where 80% of the stuff is for females, the hunt lets guys find where the really good stuff is! (And not just another pair of jeans!)
quicksilver blackheart: It exposes us men to different vendors and style that we aren’t commonly exposed before to. Helps us men to create different style from the regular ones that are in Second Life.
Random Toocool: new stores… great clothes
ken001 Silverfall: Best way to move from ‘average’ dresser to ‘sophisticated’ dresser.
Brayden Islay: Great way to find new stores!
JuliusCaesar Byron:  A great help to newbies
