The Drax Files: Virtual Chemistry

Virtual Chemistry

It is really amazing to me how Second Life can be used in a variety of ways including as a teaching tool in classrooms. I wished Second Life was used in all my classes when I was back in school. I would probably love learning and do my homework more. Video and Interview by Draxtor Depres and I can see a brief segment of the video shot at Rico’s Tea House. Yay. ❤

OMG, It’s Torley Linden!

We are so honored Torley Linden visited our home and Rico’s Tea House. As you can see, Edi is like awed, shocked and captured in his fan  girl moment. Edi vowed to do two things. This day is now declared Torley Linden Day on our land in honor of his visit and we are going to have a plaque made with two foot prints saying ”Torley Stood here” and put it in the floor. Hehe! Torley took some pics of the sim and they are awesome. Check his Flickr. https://www.flickr.com/photos/torley. Last week, we got a tip in the tip jar from Guy Linden in the tea house. 😀 Yay.

Thank you to everyone who came and visited Rico’s Tea House. We are overjoyed and floored with the warm compliments and support. Everyone is welcome and we hope you come and visit us again. Go “like” us on the SL Destination Guide Page. Ty. ❤

My Modelling Farewell

Snapshot_001MY MODELLING FAREWELL

Yesterday, once and for all, I finally decided to hang up my modelling career in Second Life. I have been semi-retired for a long time now, always still have one foot inside the door occasionally doing shows, magazine prints and vendor ads for friends. I just cant see myself doing shows anymore and even doing magazine prints and vendor pictures seems like a chore. The fun and excitement is no longer there and for better or worse, the Second Life Fashion Industry is much different now.

As I left my agencies and designer groups one by one, I was filled with bittersweet emotions. I can honestly say that I’ve had the time of my life. Though it was full of UPS and DOWNS, I’ve had very little regrets and I have always been true to myself. I’ve met a lot of wonderful friends from around the world; some I would call family which taught me love, kindness and acceptance. I’ve met enemies as well which taught me to be brave, strong and to stand up for myself and those I love. I have always been shy and quiet in RL but being a model in Second Life taught me confidence, self-respect and perseverance. It also taught me an important lesson: All the awards and supertags, all the VIP titles and Elite memberships, all the exclusive invites to events, etc… absolutely DOES NOT MATTER in the end. I have been a member of many top agencies and designer groups, been honored with many awards and magazine cover features and there was a time when I was winning every contest I entered (or at least top3) but you know what? In 10-20 years time, no one will remember or care. I believe what matters are the lasting friendships we’ve made that transcends into real life. How you treat people matters because they will always remember kindness even in a virtual world. What matters the most are the people I’ve met all over the world.

I want to thank everyone who had supported my SL modelling career and gave me chances and opportunities. Thank you for believing in me and helping me accomplished all my dreams and goals. Thank you to every single one of my modelling and magazine agencies and designer groups that I’ve had the honor and pleasure to be part of. There are so many people to mention but you know who all of you are. With all my heart and sincerity, I can’t thank you enough and I wish you all love and success in both lives.

I will still be in Second Life from time to time but behind the scenes focusing on artistic projects and magazine articles. You need a model? This old fart is retired. LOL :p

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!

MEET MVW Mr. India 2012: TymonAlexander

TYMON ALEXANDER

 

Greetings everyone ,  My name Is Tymonalexander 27 years old , a Hair stylist & make up artist  in my real life . I was born in Morocco and  I spent my life  traveling  between France , Spain , and I eventually landed in Belgium , where I have lived for 4 years now .  This is where my  versatile and eclectic  personality, tastes, styles comes from . Sl for me  is  place where people come after work to have some fun and meet nice people and enjoy they times.

My time in sl  is spent between styling, shopping , working  on my Androgynous magazine, going and watching shows , dancing or just talking with my close friends, who I love to pieces they will recognize themselves♥  cause even though it is a virtual world,  we all need support  and people you trust and count on around  you .

I joined  Mister Virtual World  because it seems to be a very unique and exciting experience  to try and I confirm it is .  It push you to your limits and even gets you to see the finest details and become a true perfectionist at your styling and fitting abilities . You learn to search deep  inside your inspiration  to come up  with something new  and different . I become where I will be prepared for anything,  anywhere . But my own main goal for me is for tolerance and freedom , be YOU .

I think what I bring  to the competition  is my eclectic styling which is multicultural and to show people who I am and what I am made of.  I love to help people learn and be the best they can be.

“If i win ” ?  I’ve already won , because I was chosen as candidate and  it means we are all potentially winners and have skills to be  Mister Virtual . It all depends on a few details which can be very a little to make the difference and the judges choices .

But if I get the title, I would do what I do everyday, which is try be inspiration to people ,  help organizations, associations and charities .  I would thank all the people who work so hard in SL for others, Like relay for life, Ashraya, Feed Smiles, Breast Cancer Awareness , Aids Awareness, No Hate , Suicide Prevention and so many more . We do help people and there are always so many that need promotion, people to donate time and lindens too, anything I can help with and be a part of is my honor to do so.

To finish this interview  I would say to all the candidates,  good luck and it is a great honor to be with you guys in this journey .

Have a Great  Week
