Beauty Rocks!


The final contestants for Second Life’s Miss Universe 2008 were announced at the Miss Costa Rica Pageant yesterday, and afterwards Callie Cline hosted one of the BEST SL PARTIES EVER at her Calliefornia beach resort. Pretty much everyone who is anyone in SL fashion showed up (who was online at the time, hehe). Beauty rocked the grid to the wee hours of the slt morning. For anyone who couldn’t make it, here’s my vid:

Hope you enjoy! The region was packed full, creating tons of lag, so the frame rates are a bit jerky … but hey, just work it, beautiful!

Accademia Fashion Show: More Pics!

Here’s a few more shots of the Accademia del Lusso fashion show held on the newly opened Montenapoleone sim last Saturday. I did a fuller post on the Fashion Heaven blog, so be sure to check it out. And don’t miss this week’s issue of Metaverse Messenger, where you can read more about the show and the Accademia’s exciting RL/SL educational project. 


As you can see in the photo above, it was standing room only at the show, with over 90 people attending. At center stage, model Colleen Desmoulins poses in Musashi-Do‘s Flower Me in green and fuschia.


Isabella Sampaio (above) started off the show modelling Simone‘s Megadilly in Sepia, complemented with Autumn Leaf jewelry and Ruffle Boots in Coffee from Shiny Things.


Okay, I posted another version of this photo on Fashion Heaven, but Queenie is my friend, and it’s my blog, so there!


Here’s Colleen Desmoulins wearing caLLie cLine‘s Persephone in Black, finished with Shiny Thing’s Nightime Gems in Black (set to Moonstone), and Tuxedo Pumps in white with black bows (which you can’t see, but they’re there, I promise).


Organized by Shiryu Musashi (the mastermind behind the project), together with Ally Geer and Bianca Darling of ASpiRE!,  the show’s finale received well-deserved and enthusiastic applause.

Eight Random Facts

Melanie Kidd was tagged by Nadine Nozaki to do the eight random facts; and Melanie in turn tagged moi!

 Here are the rules:
(1) Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
(2) People who are tagged need to write a post on their own blog (about their eight things) and post these rules.
(3) At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
(4) Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog

Eight Facts:

 (1) I’ve been to the end of the road, literally: Zagora, Morocco, on the edge of the Sahara Desert, where the camel caravans begin the 52 day journey across the desert to Timbuctu.

(2) I survived a two-day sandstorm near said location, when my bf and I journeyed down the Oued Draa (a river that flows out into the desert) to go swimming in some beautiful oasis pools, only to get caught in a relentless, biting, lung-choking Sahara sandstorm 😛

(3) I cycled across Europe, from Lisbon to London.

(4) I have perfect vision in one eye, and better than perfect in the other (I don’t miss much – ‘cept when I’m sleepy).

(5) When I was 16, I nearly drowned when I tried to swim a 500 meter stretch of water in strong winds and waves, but a voice (honestly) kept urging me to keep going even though my body just wanted to stop and give up, so I did… and here I am.

(6) I’ve seen the Northern Lights up close (in the north). Un-freakin’-believable! The whole night sky alive with gigantic swirling phantoms of electric colour that sweep upwards through the atmosphere all the way to the stars.

(7) I’m a hopeless romantic.

(8) I’m in love with life.

And here’s my tags 🙂 – Alaska Metropolitan, Queenie Extraordinaire, Carissa Crimson, Kitty Lalonde, Tiernan Serpentine, Phoenix Chapman, (omg! 8 is hard!), Kaysha Sion, Callie Cline
