Faster Pussycat Spring and Summer 2010

I'm currently working on my new spring and summer line Seriously Cute that's why I'm such a recluse these days. But I thought I'd post a preview so you can see I'm actually working, not just saying lol. We're expanding the store, have a whole new floor and will also be featuring shoes and accessories. Seriously Cute plus another more spectacular line of gowns and catsuits should be out in the store after Easter holidays. Enjoy!

In all Fair-ness

I remember a time when Hair Fair was the big event of the year, in fact many would argue that it still is apart from getting caught in a massive soup of lag. Last Hair Fair i had to cancel, not even flying around like a naked noob helped because not only was there hoards of people but nothing rezzed and if it did it was buildings made of allsorts and cupcakes, not the actual vendors! Cute idea, but unless you have a kickass pc like the Linden Labs you're in trouble. It was also quite unpleasant to hear idiots yell at people for their rendering cost. It is annoying that someone flies in with a scripted outfit and hair that could take out a SIM but be civil.

Anyways, so now we have had Skin Fair, Clothing Fair and Accessory Fair is still going on, it was only ehem fair? - that we should have a Pose Fair. Og btw - is there a shoe fair? It's the brainchild of Katey Coppola of Glitterati, and to fight the aforementioned lag they are going to keep the building minimalistic. To quote Evelyn Harsthon on their flickr: Quaduple yay for that!

I will most def be spending a bunch of my hard earned lindens here so I'll blog some of the poses with Faster Pussycats designs as I go along. Pose Fair will run from April 2nd until April 16th.

Winter Fairytale

I just had to post this lovely photo of Mimmi Boa and Poptart Lilliehook on the Glance runway wearing Faster Pussycat's winter collection "A Winter Fairytale". Mimmi (left) is wearing Winter Vamp in turqouise and black sequins and fur, Poptart is wearing The Ice Princess in glacier white. I just love the styling and the poses, which goes to show why some models are so-called supermodels. Great work, Mimmi and Poptart!

Evane's Hearts for Haiti

Last month Mimmi Boa and Evane Models did this wonderful auction for helping the people of Haiti. Over 20 exclusive designs were auctioned off in the span of two days. Faster Pussycat's contribution you can see here:

As always I did try to have my own slightly edgy take on the "big ballgown" - so yet again, another punky outfit from me. I love the idea of creating something beautiful that will help do good in this world. So when asked if I would donate something for Evane's "Hearts for Haiti" event I custom designed my very own Help Haiti- gown. I like the fact that fashion cares, and even if I as one person feel very small I know that when we stand together, people are a force to be reckoned with - a power. So naturally I called the Haiti dress for the 
"People Have the Power"-dress.
I see these gowns as a whole new take on power dressing - with our creativity we have the power to change some wrongs to rights - and the words I chose to print on the dress were inspired by an old song by Patti Smith.
I have loved creating this dress, it is is kinda punky and wild, with a bit of 80ties pop video thrown into the mix. The hearts in the tiara and the little collar symbolizes love and empathy. The big skirt symbolizes haute couture - as this dress is a one-off - and the stripey tights and top symbolises unity, strenght and hope. The top even has the words "HOPE" printed on the back. 
Tops and bottoms are in all layers for easy wear and without the big skirt the catsuit can easily be worn under your fave denim miniskirt or booty shorts for a more casual look. 
The idea of a full bodycatsuit is warm, cocooning comfort - just what every human being needs, but especially the little children of Haiti who are suffering twice as much as everybody else with the threat of human trafficking lurking in addition to the traumas of the disaster and loss already. God bless whomever bought my dress, you are helping save lives.

If you didn't get a chance to come to this auction don't panic - there's more comming up in the months to come. Glance International are having a Relay for Life show and so is Opium. And I think Faster Pussycat will contribute to both if I get enough time. I will post more details soon as I know. See you there!
