PAPARAZZI by Lady Gaga

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
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

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

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’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.

PHOTOGRAPHER: RicoRacer Flux (Above), Kimmy Inkpen (Below)

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!!!

“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

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.

Roxette – It Must Have Been Love lyrics

Lay a whisper on my pillow
Leave the winter on the ground
I wake up lonely, is there a silence
In the bedroom and all around

Touch me now, I close my eyes
And dream away…

It must have been love, but it’s over now
It must have been good, but I lost it somehow
It must have been love, but it’s over now
From the moment we touched till the time had run out

Make believing we’re together
That I’m sheltered by your heart
But in and outside I turn to water
Like a teardrop in your palm

And it’s a hard winter’s day
I dream away…

It must have been love, but it’s over now
It was all that I wanted, now I’m living without
It must have been love, but it’s over now
It’s where the water flows, it’s where the wind blows

It must have been love, but it’s over now
It must have been good, but I lost it somehow
It must have been love, but it’s over now
From the moment we touched till the time had run out

Santa baby, slip a sable under the tree, for me
I’ve been an awful good girl, santa baby
So hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa baby, a ’54 convertible, too, light blue
Well I’ll wait up for you, dear, santa baby
So hurry down the chimney tonight, yeah

Think of all the fun I’ve missed
Think of all the boys I haven’t kissed
Next year I could be just as good
If you check off my Christmas list

Santa baby, I want a yacht and really that’s not a lot
I’ve been an angel all year, santa baby
So hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa, honey, there’s one more thing I really do need, the deed
To a platinum mine, santa honey
So hurry down the chimney tonight

Come and trim my Christmas tree
With some decorations bought at Tiffany’s
I really do believe in you
Let’s see if you believe in me

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing
A ring!
And I don’t mean on the phone, santa baby
So hurry down the chimney tonight.

LYRICS:

BOYS of Summer

Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
The summer’s out of reach
Empty lake, empty streets
The sun goes down alone
I’m drivin’ by your house
Though I know you’re not at home

But I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
You got your hair combed back and your sunglasses on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I never will forget those nights
I wonder if it was a dream
Remember how you made me crazy?
Remember how I made you scream
Now I don’t understand what happened to our love
But babe, I’m gonna get you back
I’m gonna show you what I’m made of

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
I see you walkin’ real slow and you’re smilin’ at everyone
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

Out on the road today, I saw a DEADHEAD sticker on a Cadillac
A little voice Inside my head said, “Don’t look back. You can never look back.”
I thought I knew what love was
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever
I should just let them go but-

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
You got that top pulled down and that radio on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
You got that hair slicked back and those Wayfarers on, baby
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone.

NEIL DIAMOND – September Morn

Stay for just a while
Stay, and let me look at you
Its been so long, I hardly knew you
Standing in the door
Stay with me a while
I only want to talk to you
Weve traveled halfway round the world
To find ourselves again

September morn
We danced until the night became a brand new day
Two lovers playing scenes from some romantic play
September morning still can make me feel this way

Look at what youve done
Why, youve become a grown-up girl
I still can hear you cryin
In the corner of your room
And look how far weve come
So far from where we used to be
But not so far that weve forgotten
How it was before

September morn
Do you remember how we danced that night away
Two lovers playing scenes from some romantic play
September morning still can make me feel this way

Somewhere Only We Know

I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete
Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

I came across a fallen tree
I felt the branches of it looking at me?
Is this the place we used to love?
Is this the place that I’ve been dreaming of?

Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

So if you have a minute why don’t we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go
Somewhere only we know?

Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in

Talk about it somewhere only we know?

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high,
There’s a land that I heard of
Once in a lullaby.
Somewhere over the rainbow
Skies are blue,
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true.

Someday I’ll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far
Behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That’s where you’ll find me.

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly.
Birds fly over the rainbow.
Why then, oh why can’t I?

If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can’t I?

RicoRacer Flux’s “The Journey”: Today is my interview for Mister Virtual World and I feel sick. =( OMG, my allergies are acting up. I took Benadryl and it just made me so groggy and out of it. Anyway, I am so nervous about the Live Interview part because I consider it my weakest point. I can style superbly and model perfectly but I have trouble answering tough questions on demand in front of a live audience. Unfortunately, there’s nothing I can do to prepare for it. I absolutely have no idea what questions they are going to ask. I just have to be myself and answer the questions the best I can sincerely. I am very excited though to wear a special design made for me from Donna Flora for this interview. It is a tan business suit that is simply amazing. Wish me luck! The good news is that after this interview, the fun part starts. =) I cannot wait to see my formal wear and swimwear and style them. I am getting nervous because the competition is fast approaching and I hope I don’t have to compete naked ‘cuz my outfits are not done. LOL. But I have complete faith in the designers to deliver. They are the best.

FASHION & MUSIC: On Her Majesty’s Secret Service Starring RicoRacer Flux

MODEL: RicoRacer Flux

PHOTOGRAPHER: Barney Roundel

FASHION: This mix and match outfit is put together with finesse to create a stunning ensemble reminiscent of Alexander Mcqueen Style. The highly detailed Tuxedo Jacket is from Lapointe & Bastchilde that comes with a collar, tie and cuff prims. The grooved vertical edges make a man look lean and sophisticated.
I paired this formal jacket with a fantastic Scottish kilt from Mushashi-do. The colors of the kilt are vibrant and it really flows when you move. It comes with a belt and sporran (pouch) that is highly detailed with rich textures if you look closely. The awesome footwear is from REDGRAVE. It is very unique and compliments the outfit well. A top hat and an umbrella from Cheerno completes the look that speaks volumes. A great combination of Masculinity and Elegance.

Wearing this fantastic outfit makes a man feel adventurous and mysterious.  Catch dangerous criminals as a Top Notch spy On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Rescue that damsel in distress and save the world in time from a great peril. Let your imaginations run wild. =)

RicoRacer Flux “The Journey”: Second Life contests and castings. I’ve had my fair share of winning and losing SL contests and castings. It makes me sad that people take losing so seriously to the point of giving up Second Life. When it comes to competitions, I always follow this very wise saying…” Don’t take your success to your head nor your failures to your heart.” Win or Lose, Life goes on and I believe the experience will only make you stronger and better. No one can win all the competitions out there. You may have the perfect ‘everything’ but it might not be what they are looking for at that moment.

Let me tell you something. I once auditioned for a Top SL agency who was hiring models.  As far as I’m concerned, I had the perfect look with fantastic styling and fabulous poses picked out. I was so SURE that they would hire me but they didn’t. I was not what they are looking for at that moment. Guess What? Two weeks later, I got a message from that agency’s CEO that they would love to hire me and add me to their model roster if I am still interested. Anyway, the point is no matter how perfect you are, it might not be the right fit at that time. Contests are subjective and each judge’s view of what they are looking varies. So, if you don’t get it the first time, TRY again. Don’t be too hard on yourself. The sun will always shine. Wouldn’t the victory be much sweeter knowing how hard you worked at it? So, Get up, dust off and move on. The journey is not about the destination but the experiences along the way. Most important is to be happy of who you are and be content with what you have. Enjoy life. =)

Doo-dloo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-dloo-doo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-dloo-doo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-dloo-doo-doo-doo-doo…

I’m singing in the rain
Just singing in the rain
What a glorious feelin’
I’m happy again
I’m laughing at clouds
So dark up above
The sun’s in my heart
And I’m ready for love
Let the stormy clouds chase
Everyone from the place
Come on with the rain
I’ve a smile on my face
I walk down the lane
With a happy refrain
Just singin’,
Singin’ in the rain

Dancin’ in the rain
Dee-ah dee-ah dee-ah
Dee-ah dee-ah dee-ah
I’m happy again!
I’m singin’ and dancin’ in the rain!

I’m dancin’ and singin’ in the rain…

LYRICS:
Part of Your World

Look at this stuff
Isn’t it neat?
Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete?
Wouldn’t you think I’m the girl
The girl who has everything?
Look at this trove
Treasures untold
How many wonders can one cavern hold?
Lookin’ around here you’d think
(Sure) she’s got everything

I’ve got gadgets and gizmos aplenty
I’ve got whozits and whatzits galore
(You want thingamabobs?
I got twenty)
But who cares?
No big deal
I want more…

I wanna be where the people are
I wanna see
Wanna see ‘em dancin’
Walkin’ around on those
(Whad’ya call ‘em?) oh – feet
Flippin’ your fins you don’t get too far
Legs are required for jumpin’, dancin’
Strollin’ along down a
(What’s that word again?) street

Up where they walk
Up where they run
Up where they stay all day in the sun
Wanderin’ free
Wish I could be
Part of that world

What would I give
If I could live
Outta these waters?
What would I pay
To spend a day
Warm on the sand?
Betcha on land
They understand
Bet they don’t reprimand their daughters
Bright young women
Sick o’ swimmin’
Ready to stand

And ready to know what the people know
Ask ‘em my questions
And get some answers
What’s a fire and why does it
(What’s the word?) burn?

When’s it my turn?
Wouldn’t I love
Love to explore that shore above?
Out of the sea
Wish I could be
Part of that world.

You said you’d be here by 9,

You didn’t think to call me, boy

asking myself why
You do this to me, mmm, oh, baby

Since you’re not around for me to tell you, baby
Face to face

All I really wanted was some of your time

when someone else was on your mind
What’d you do to me (What’d you do),
look what you did to me (Oh, baby)
I thought that you were someone
who would do me right (Do me right)
Until you played with my emotions
and you made me cry (Made me cry)
What’d you do to me (Oh…oh…),
can’t take what you did to me

Now I see what you’ve been doin’ wrong
Blamed me all along

You got it all wrong
to think that I wouldn’t find out, uh
That you were cheating on me, dear,
how could you do it to me, mmm…mmm…

LYRICS:

Leaving on the Midnight Train to Georgia

LA proved too much for the man
(Too much for a man, he couldn’t make it)
So he’s leaving a life he’s come to know
(He said he’s going)
He said he’s going back to find
(Going back to find)
What’s left of his world
The world he left behind not so long ago

He’s leaving (Leaving)
On that midnight train to Georgia
(Leaving on a midnight train)
Said he’s going back (Going back to find)
To find a simpler place and time
(Whenever he takes that ride, guess who’s gonna be right by his side)
I’ll be with him (I know you will)
On that midnight train to Georgia
(Leaving on a midnight train to Georgia, woo woo)
I’d rather live in his world, (Live in his world)
Than live without him in mine
(World, world, is his and hers alone)

He kept dreaming (Dreaming)
That some day he’d be a star
(A superstar, but he didn’t get far)
But he sure found out the hard way,
That dreams don’t always come true
(Dreams don’t always gome true, uh huh, no, uh huh)
So he pawned all his hopes
(Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh)
And even sold his old car
(Woo, woo, woo)
For a one way ticket back to the life he once knew
Oh yes he did, he said he would

He’s leaving
(Leaving)
On that midnight train to Georgia
(Leaving on a midnight train)
Yeah, said he’s going back to find
(Going back to find)
A simpler place and time
(Whenever he takes that ride, guess who’s gonna be right by his side)
I’m gonna be with him
(I know you will)
On that midnight train to Georgia
(Leaving on a midnight train to Georgia, woo woo)
I’d rather live in his world,
(Live in his world)
Than live without him in mine
(World, world, it’s his and hers alone)

He’s leaving
(Leaving)
On the midnight train to Georgia
(Leaving on the midnight train to)
Said he’s going back to find
(Going back to find)
A simpler place and time
(Whenever he takes that ride, guess who’s gonna be right by his side)
I’ve got to be with him
(I know you will)
On that midnight train to Georgia
(Leaving on a midnight train to Georgia, woo woo)
I’d rather live in his world,
(Live in his world)
Than live without him in mine
(World, world it’s his, his and hers alone)

My love, gonna board the midnight train to Georgia (x3)

My world, his world, our world, mine and his alone (x2)

I’ve got to go (x5)

My world, his world, my man, his girl.

*RicoRacer Flux “The Journey”: I am on a modeling break at this time to refresh and energize. The past few months have been crazy with lots of fashion shows, editorials and contests. I love modeling but sometimes one must take a little break for a breathe of fresh ideas and perspective. Also have a lot of real life affairs to settle. My next projects will be completing our first task for Mister Virtual World which is a photo of our National Costume with head shot and a brief biography about ourselves. I cannot wait to show off my National Costume especially designed by the super talented designer: Enzo Champagne from CHAMPAGNE! Sparkling Fashion. He did an amazing job and I am so honored and grateful for his sponsorship.

Also considering applying for the Modavia Casting, “Paris in the Springtime”. We shall see. =) Ciao.

FASHION & MUSIC: Blondie’s “CALL ME” Starring RicoRacer Flux

MUSIC: CALL ME From American Gigolo

ARTIST: BLONDIE

MODEL: RicoRacer Flux

PHOTOGRAPHER: Talyia Tarber

FASHION: Crisp white handsome open shirt from SF Design with hanging tie coupled with black VITAMEN underwear gives the look for a relaxing comfortable evening of winding down after a day from the office.

RicoRacer Flux “The Journey”: (From now on, I will add this little section in all my personal posts called: “RicoRacer Flux: The Journey”. People have frequently told me that they love the blog but there doesn’t seem to be any information about me as a blogger and model like I’m some kind of mystery. LOL. I honestly don’t like to talk about myself and believe it or not, I’m extremely shy. But I am deeply passionate about modeling and blogging. I figured this would help me open up and make the blog more personal. I will backtrack to my old posts as well and add my little thoughts and feelings about living my Second Life as a model, blogger, mentor, instructor and whatever roles I may find myself into. It will be all put in a special tab on the right side of the screen called: RicoRacer Flux: The Journey. Consider this section “MY CONFESSION”.  ;p)

It has been almost a month since I discovered that I am a Finalist for Mister Virtual World. I’m still pinching myself to see if I’m dreaming. I look back last year where I was in the audience watching the men compete for MVW 2009. I knew then that this is something I want to do and made a vow that I will be on that stage as a finalist for MVW 2010.  I guess this is part of the reason why I became a model in Second Life. I’ve always been fascinated by beauty pageants in real life for the spirit of the competition. I love styling outfits together and I can’t wait to show my “National Costume” on stage. BTW, I know I represent MR. Egypt but I actually reside in the USA. I chose Egypt because of the rich culture and tradition that is represents. =)

Okay back to the picture. Here, I portray my own version of Richard Gere’s character in American Gigolo. A friend called me crazy that I might be ruining my “image” by portraying a male hooker. LOL. It’s fun to play a man for hire. LMAO. ;p Honestly, I am a pretty open minded person and I don’t mind “Adult Content” or Avatar Nudity as long as it is artistic and it has a point. Talyia Tarber did an amazing job especially with my request to make me a male Hoe. She listens to my ideas well and make it alive with her amazing talent. Hmmm, I wonder what other strange request Talyia gets from her costumers. lol. You can see my Fantabulous FLickr Here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ricoracerflux/

LYRICS:
HIGH FLYING, ADORED

High flying, adored…
So young, the instant queen.
A rich beautiful thing, of all the talents…
A cross between a fantasy of the bedroom and a saint.
You were just a backstreet girl…
Hustling and fighting, scratching and biting.

High flying, adored…
Did you believe in your wildest moments
All this would be yours?
That you’d become the lady of them all?

Were there stars in your eyes
When you crawled in at night?
From the bars, from the sidewalks,
From the gutter theatrical…
Don’t look down, it’s a long, long way to fall.

High flying, adored…
What happens now, where do you go from here?
For someone on top of the world,
The view is not exactly clear.
A shame you did it all at twenty-six
There are no mysteries now.
Nothing can thrill you, no one can fulfill you.

High flying, adored…
I hope you come to terms with boredom.
So famous so easily, so soon
It’s not the wisest thing to be.

You won’t care if they love you
It’s been done before.
You’ll despair if they hate you,
You’ll be drained of all energy.
All the young who’ve made it would agree.

(Madonna)
High flying, adored…
That’s good to hear but unimportant.
My story’s quite usual…
Local girl makes good, weds famous man.
I was slap in the right place at the perfect time.
Filled a gap, I was lucky…
But one thing I’ll say for me.
No one else can fill it like I can.

MUSIC: Someday My Prince Will Come From Snow White

ARTIST: Barbara Streisand

MODEL & PHOTOGRAPHER: Leandra Breen

MODEL INFO: I started modelling in September 2009. Some people say that I have made a very quick and rapid career and where it should go further. I always answer that I work hard and try to do always the best, equal if it is a very big Agency or a small and my goal is to be satisfied with all I do and myself. I love those 10 minutes backstage before a show starts. I love the adrenaline and the excitement and of course I love Fashion.
I graduated in the first group at Miss Virtual World Academy, which makes me a bit proud.

Since the same time I am Photographer. It is wonderful to work creative and SL is a place to let the imagination fly. I have to learn new things in Photoshop every day and this is the challenge and new experience I love.

Last but not least I am COO for Angel Dessous Couture & Lingerie and when all this leaves a bit space I love to visit Fashion Shows and beautiful Sims or Galleries with my Love Nando.
I truly can say that I am lucky in my both lives. *Leandra Breen

Someday my prince will come.
Someday I’ll find my love…
And how thrilling that moment will be,
When the prince of my dreams comes to me.

He’ll whisper I love you,
And steal a kiss or two.
Though he may be far away,
I will find my love someday.
Someday when my dreams come true.

Someday I’ll find my love,
Someone to call my own.
And I’ll know him the moment we meet
for my heart will start skipping a beat.

Someday we’ll say and do
The things we’ve been longing to.
Though he is far away..
I’ll find my love someday.
Someday when my dreams come true.

Somewhere waiting for me,
There’s someone I’m longing to see
Someone I can’t help but adore…
Who will thrill me for ever more?

Someday my prince will come,
Someday I will find my the one.
Though he is far away…
I’ll find my love someday.
Someday when my dreams come true.

Russian Roulette

Take a breath, take it deep
Calm yourself, he says to me
If you play, you play for keeps
Take a gun, and count to three
Im sweating now, moving slow
No time to think, my turn to go

[Chorus]
And you can see my heart beating
You can see it through my chest
And Im terrified but Im not leaving
Know that I must must pass this test
So just pull the trigger

Say a prayer to yourself
He says close your eyes
Sometimes it helps
And then I get a scary thought
That hes here means hes never lost

And you can see my heart beating
You can see it through my chest
And Im terrified but Im not leaving
Know that I must must pass this test
So just pull the trigger

As my life flashes before my eyes
Im wondering will I ever see another sunrise?
So many wont get the chance to say goodbye
But its too late too pick up the value of my life

I sit and talk to god
And he just laughs at my plans,
My head speaks a language, I don’t understand.

(chorus)
I just wanna feel real love,
Feel the home that I live in.
’cause I got too much life,
Running through my veins, going to waste.

I don’t wanna die,
But I ain’t keen on living either.
Before I fall in love,
I’m preparing to leave her.
I scare myself to death,
That’s why I keep on running.
Before I’ve arrived, I can see myself coming.

(chorus)
I just wanna feel real love,
Feel the home that I live in.
’cause I got too much life,
Running through my veins, going to waste.

And I need to feel, real love
And a life ever after.
I cannot get enough.

(instrumental)

(chorus)
I just wanna feel real love,
Feel the home that I live in,
I got too much love,
Running through my veins, going to waste.

I just wanna feel real love,
In a life ever after
There’s a hole in my soul,
You can see it in my face, it’s a real big place.

(instrumental)

Come and hold my hand,
I wanna contact the living,
Not sure I understand,
This role I’ve been given

Not sure I understand.
Not sure I understand.
Not sure I understand.
Not sure I understand.

LYRICS:
ONE REASON

Give me one reason to stay here -
and I’ll turn right back around.
Give me one reason to stay here -
and I’ll turn right back around.
Say I don’t want leave you lonely,
But you got to make me change my mind.

Baby I got your number and I know that you got mine.
But you know that I called you, I called too many times.
You can call me baby, you can call me anytime…
But you got to call me.

Give me one reason to stay here -
and I’ll turn right back around.
Give me one reason to stay here -
and I’ll turn right back around.
I said I don’t want leave you lonely
But you got to make me change my mind.

I don’t want no one to squeeze me -
they might take away my life.
I don’t want no one to squeeze me -
they might take away my life.
I just want someone to hold me and rock me through the night

This youthful heart can love you and give you what you need.
This youthful heart can love you and give you what you need.
But I’m too old to go chasing you around,
Wasting my precious energy.

Give me one reason to stay here -
and I’ll turn right back around.
Give me one reason to stay here -
and I’ll turn right back around.
Because I don’t want leave you lonely
But you got to make me change my mind.

Baby just give me one reason -
give me just one reason why.
Baby just give me one reason -
give me just one reason why I should stay.
Because I told you that I loved you
And there ain’t no more to say.

FASHION & MUSIC: Natural Woman by Aretha Franklin starring DeeDee Deepdene

MUSIC: Natural Woman
ARTIST: Aretha Franklin
MODEL & PHOTOGRAPHER: Dee Dee Deepdene
FASHION: Lingerie is Vanessa by Nicky Ree. Shoes by Stiletto Moody. Any silks or cloth effects are sculpties designed by me. All poses created by me and available from DeePosed, my store. If you want amazing, natural looking photography poses, please visit DeePosed: SLurl http://slurl.com/secondlife/Saiph/184/101/23
INFO: I am the model, artist, set creator, pose designer for all my pics. Each image takes on average between 3-5 hours to do and what I capture is 99.9% what you see with the exception of colour enhancement and minor retouching. With nearly 600 poses in DeePosed store, you will appreciate the amount of time put into all my image creation. I create all lighting and shadowing in world using a standard viewer. I try and build in as much realism as I can i.e. with gravity effects for hair or creating individual shadow elements for objects in view. It’s a constant learning curve and always maintains my interest.

I’ve always liked emotive, evocative and sensual imagery in the human form and am always intrigued as to how far I can reflect this in what I do in second life. I hope that people can see that in my pics.

LYRICS:
Natural Woman

Looking out on the morning rain,
I used to feel so uninspired.
And when I knew I had to face another day
Lord, it made me feel so tired.
Before the day I met you, life was so unkind
But your love was the key to my peace of mind.

Cause you make me feel, you make me feel,
you make me feel like A natural woman.

When my soul was in the lost-and-found,
You came along to claim it.
I didn’t know just what was wrong with me
Till your kiss helped me name it.
Now I’m no longer doubtful of what I’m living for
Cause if I make you happy I don’t need no more.

Cause you make me feel, you make me feel,
you make me feel like A natural woman.

Oh, baby, what you’ve done to me,
You make me feel so good inside.
And I just want to be close to you
You make me fell so alive.
Cause you make me feel, you make me feel,
you make me feel like A natural woman.

FASHION & MUSIC: “A Whole New World” by Peabo Bryson & Regina Belle starring Viola Rookswood & RicoRacer Flux

MUSIC: A Whole New World
ARTISTS: Peabo Bryson & Regina Belle
MODEL:Viola Rookswood
MODEL INFO:Viola Rookswood is the Lead Stylist for Doll House Designs, a new business featuring personal styling services and, as of March 2010, rolling out an initial product line featuring furniture, koi ponds, fountains, novelty items and custom building projects. Especially cupcakes! She is a stylist with Farouche Tres Modeling Agency and enjoys having the opportunity of working with the students and staff. In addition, she is a recent graduate of Catalyst of Fantasy Modeling Academy and looks forward to continuing her modeling education. To see her list of achievements, browse the picks tab on her profile. Viola will be competing in the upcoming Ms VR International Pageant. Viola recently won first place for a Model’s Workshop challenge to put a together a fabulous look with a rendering cost of below 1000. She won a very generous gift card from Kimmera (Tres Beau) and picked this breathtaking gown in the picture.
PHOTOGRAPHER: Julie Hastings
FASHION: Nemi Gown by Tres Beau. When working with formal wear or costume couture, I prefer to go high drama. To me, this particular type of garment and resulting photo is a model’s chance to go for a look that pushes past the norm and into that goddess zone. You don’t want to just catch an eye, you want a WOW. Ultimately, Kimmera’s Nemi gown seemed to best fit that bill. Originally created for Miss Nemi McCoy for the Miss Virtual World 2010 Pageant, this gown is a hands-down show stopper. I love the color and texture. The level of detail on the garment is amazing. You not only have a texture that includes jeweled draping hanging from the bodice, Kimmera has included the jewels to match down to the bindi. The consistency of the colors in this garment push it past your usual piece and into its own zone.

As for styling this particular garment, I chose to attempt to be true to the culture behind it and really tried to embrace everything about it. The skin is an Indian skin from Unique with make-up colors that compliment the gown. For hair, I chose a swept back look with a high, full pony. Something that I felt was reminiscent of the images that come to mind when you think of the classical goddess look. The Mandala bangles seemed the perfect compliment to the overall look and feel of what this woman would wear. As for the henna tattoos…well, this is SL and sometimes that means it is a chance for us to have something in our pixellated universe that we maybe haven’t had a chance to have in our real lives. I’ve wanted to have my hands and feet painted with henna tattoos for the longest time now. Would I really pass up an opportunity to use henna tattoos here? Heck no!

LYRICS:

A Whole New World

I can show you the world
Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me princess, now when did
You last let your heart decide?

I can open your eyes
Take you wonder by wonder
Over, sideways and under
On a magic carpet ride

A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no
Or where to go
Or say we’re only dreaming

A whole new world
A dazzling place I never knew
But, now, from way up here
It’s crystal clear
That now I’m in a whole new world with you

Unbelievable sights
Indescribable feeling
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky

A whole new world
(Don’t you dare close your eyes)
A hundred thousand things to see
(Hold your breath it gets better)
I’m like a shooting star
I’ve come so far
I can’t go back to where I used to be

A whole new world
With new horizons to pursue
I’ll chase them aywhere
There’s time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you

A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no
Or where to go
Or say we’re only dreaming

A whole new world
(Every turn a surprise)
With new horizons to purue
(Every moment red-letter)
I’ll chase them anywhere
There’s time to spare
Anywhere, there’s time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you

A whole new world
That’s where we’ll be
A thrilling chase
A wondrous place
For you and me.
