Crazy party month

Yes, that's what it's been. Even for a pixelated avatar the fall gets busy with lots of parties and coolass happenings. This fall started out with Glance's huge birthday celebration - our first year as an agency. Patty has kept us all busy and if anybody deserves an award this year it's her. Honestly. The Fall kickoff was an amazing 2 day show with so many designers and models attending it makes me dizzy just to talk about. Then - .:Naive designer Leah McCullogh had my dress ready (i will make it a special post) which I hade the honor of showing on the runway and on posters in her show. It was all for winning the .:Naive photo contest in August.
Then - more parties and awards. These photos are from Glance International's Photo Awards and from the Glance Magazine launch party. To top it all off i was chosen as Glance's Model of the Month in the premier issue of the magazine, and have been crazy busy after with shoots and shows and all the glitz and glam that comes with it. And to top it all off Paty made my dream come true this month, picking me as cover model on 2 fashion publications of October - plus giving me 10-12 spreads on the magazine. Patty - you have made this October so memorable I can sometimes not believe it's true lol

GIA Gothic Fashion Show

I officialy love October and everything spooky that comes with it - like Halloween! As usual this month has been crazy busy - among the many things we had the most awsome fashion runway show at Glance freaturing the designs of House of Rfyre and Sangre Noir plus the lovely Aimesi skins. Here is a capture from Sharron Schuman, I just love how this photo came out. The gown is from Sangre Noir and was a forties Film Noir kind of design, Herradure Baar had written the most amazing little blurbs about the vampire Sangre's 300 year old life story - for each and every outfit an original little story. And this smooth coctail dress with rose decorated sash and little bustle represents the years when the vampire Sangre was a vampy gothic pinup and worked in the New York underground as a nightclub performer during the 1940ties. I just love that story Herra lol. And Sharron - the snap is adorable!


This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.

Do me a fave - listen to this

These songs and this voice makes me cry with emotion...and bear in mind both songs are live perfromances, and the guy and his backing singers sounds amazing.
There's done so many covers of this song but Leonard wrote it and his version is King.

if there is anything spiritual in this world it must sound like this.

And this:

"I have seen the future brother
it is murder..."

Words of a genious.

Why I love hairbands

I am forever in love with glamrock and what seems to have sprung out of the original glam scene of the seventies – what my darling Coeur spitefully call hairbands. Why do I like this?Well...because they are cool of course, its all in the name of GREAT style sense - in a very poser “look at my crotch”- kinda way. Tight pants, loads of hair, add guitars, piles of scantily clad women, cheap booze, loud noize and life doesn't really get any better than that. Ok so I don't really have any better explanation for this fetish, because i know the overall visual is tacky and a bit comical like a rock’n’roll pastiche - New York Dolls always kinda looked like the drag version of Rolling Stones. Oh's only rock'n'roll and I like it *shrugs*

I cant really get enough of it no matter how "outdated" scared little trend-midgets might call it - I have to have a regular fix of Hanoi Rocks, Stage Dolls or Europe.... just like your average a fat person overindulging on chocholate brownies.
Now, i would suggest that the worlds most famous hairband is Bon Jovi although their staying power might have proved that they reached far beyond the hairband era of the 80ties – a sensatuonal decade for everything big and excessive. I think my fave hairband bonanza would include a lineup of: Europe, TNT, Hanoi Rocks *faints*, Aerosmith, Motley Crue, Skid Row, Stage Dolls (amg *faints-faints-faints*), and guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen...Now Darkness tried it on a few years back and tho i loved their style the music kinda sucked. It was like hey, guys dont turn this into comedy, glam is serious shit.
If you’re thinking like “hellyeah, i wanna look like that!!!” keywords to get it right is:
BIG hair, preferably permed and with highlights
Very tight jeans, spandex or black denim
High heel pointy boots
Open shirts
Pilot mirror glasses.
Pile on with chunky belts and flowing scarves and twist your upper lip on occation. I have designed some outfits very much inspired by this look, my Faster Pussycat red and brown “Glam Rock”-outfit for instance has clear references to this very droolworthy and flamoyant style. Call me sick – but I do love rockers who looks like rockers, not office workers. Hail hail rock'n'roll - and pass the hairspray!

All outfits are available from my mainstore Faster Pussycat in Redux.

Nudity - still controversal?

I have just picked up a new photo competition challenge to read the words: "strictly NO nudity". Sighs. I guess there goes another contest I will not enter. Not because i cannot stick rules but because to me this has become a principle.Now in danger of comming across as an avid pornographer (hey – would that be so bad?) I really do wonder: what is this obsession with nudity in Second Life?As a photographer i'm sorry but I will not work with anyobody who set limits for what is actually photographed. I agree every contest should have rules, but i find it hard if the rules actually interfere in the artistic content.As a model i will most definately do nudity just as I see fit – and especially working with a good photographer or designer. I have modelled myself in RL, and the willingness to do nudity is never expected but always preferred, even if there are exceptions made for models who for some reason does not want to show lingerie or swimwear. They just don't work as much. But ask any TOP model - from Naomi Campbell til Kate Moss if they have ever posed naked and the answer is yes.As for the implications it is a moralistic issue: Perhaps it is because i was brought up in a part of the world where we have a very relaxed and liberated relationship with nudity, I have no problem with pornography and although the naked human body certainly does not belong everywhere, we do not really see anything morally wrong with it being on display in art, fashion and the likes.The naked body can be esthetic and pleasant and even without any hint of indecency or degradation (apart from in the head of the beholder) and this is why in art, the naked body is a prominent figure. These days it is also frequently present in cutting edge fashion photography, you can hardly open any European fashion magazine without seeing a naked female breast or tush in fashion spreads and beauty adverts. Even high fashion labels like YSL have chosen to promote one of their male fragrances with a gorgeous photo of a naked male model - full frontal - shot by the reknowned fashion photographer Solve Sundsbol. The advert appeared in many top glossies a couple of years back, and tho it was concidered slightly controversal Tom Ford had it down: what has fashion become if it can no longer be controversal? We're not talking suburbian girl scouts gatherings here remember - we're talking FASHION. cutting edge fashion....anyone??On the international runway a bare female breast hardly shocks anyone these days. I would like to see the faces of John Galliano or Donatella Versace if any professional model kicked up a stink over anything like that.This debate seems outdated. And still you do come across the occational heated discussions over Miley Cyrus showing her naked back for Annie Leibowitz cam or hear people go into hysterics over Janet's nipple slip. And not to mention – Michelle Obamas naked arms in a sleeveless dress!!!!!!!! OMG, i am laughing so much it hurts here. Have they no historic insights?? Didn’t the First Lady of all First Ladies – Jackie O – practically INVENT sleeveless fashion???
But in SL I have been on the runway with models who actually freaked at the sight of their own areolas. I have had designers ask me in an almost appologetic tone if i would mind showing a garment that is concidered "too revealing". I just do not get it - isn't it time to be more relaxed about this? All nudity is not nasty you know. Sometimes it can be both beautiful and innocent. Just a thought....

Me - a Second Styler!

I know it's weird to blog about blogging but I was recently asked by Celebrity Trollop to contribute to the Second Style Fashionista blog - which happens to be not just a fab blog but THE most influential SL fashion blog ever. I have been reading that blog since I started SL way back in august 2006 and ever since I earned my first lindens dancing Second Style has guided my shopping habits. It was Second Style that helped me find my first ever rockabilly retro hairstyle at Kin Keiko before rockabilly became the big thing in the SL fashion world. It was Second Style Magazine that inspired me to start taking photographs and taught me there was more to SL photography than lining a model up in an M30 studio against a premade background. And I used to skulk around Second Style magazines headquarters daily hoping to meet some of the awsomnesses that worked there, maybe hoping to catch a glimpse of La Editresse herself. Many months later I met Celebrity Trollop at runway shows where I was modelling and then when she became a model for Metro we even did catwalks together. I quickly learned that she sure has Anna Wintours fashion sense but Celeb has a much warmer and downright dirty fun personality. Once we showed up at a Ewing fashion show in identical leopard print artilleri coats and black gothic hairstyles - which under normal circumstances would have been concidered a disaster. But instead of sneaking off to a discreet spot to quickly reattach outfits and hair Celeb came over, posed next to me and turned a classic fashion faux pas into something fun, something that even landed us in the AvaStar gossip pages.So you can imagine when she asked me the other day if I would help blog for Second Style Fashionistas I was incredibly flattered. Celeb's idea is to dedicate each month to a different fashion topic and January is 30 Days of Skin. I would recommend you all go read it if it isnt already in your favourites - I think it will be great.
