Kaloo Who?

Well everyone and their granny is talking about the up and coming Pose Fair which runs from April 2, 2010 until April 14, 2010. About 100 stores will be involved selling poses, dances, AO’s and things like that. One store involved is the super amazing *Sh33k Poses which is owned by one of my most favorite people in the whole world – Shay Savon! I lurve this girl so much! She offered to make a set of poses based on ones that I had picked out and this is the result, The Kaloo Pack:

This pose set is being debuted at the fair along with some other goodies, like The Marcy’s Shoes Pack:

And also two couples poses. One’s really sweet, The Hop On My Back Couples Pose:

And the other is a bit, tongue in cheek…The Oh Bummer! Couples Pose:

Half of the proceeds from the sales of these poses will be going to Motivation which is “a mobility charity that works to help disabled people throughout the world in low income countries, who do not have access to other means of support.” All the creators at the fair will have donation items out (I hope) so make sure to drop by and have a look around, what you buy could help change someone’s life.

Here’s a landmark to the *Sh33k Poses stuff at the fair, and one to the mainstore.

Purty Plaid

I love me some cute, and I love me some plaid. Put the two together and you get these sweet, summer-ready shorts from ::EmJay:: by Magen Jigsaw. I’m wearing them in light blue, but they also come in yellow, teal or a red/tan version. Each of them cost L$ 75 or you can buy all 4 for L$ 250. You can wear them in a casual style like I am, or throw on a vintage jacket, some pretty jewelry and ankle boots for a dressier look.

But wait, there’s more…

Until midnight tonight (or whenever Magen decides) all single items in the store are L$ 50 and the fatpacks are L$ 200! There is no excuse to not get these shorts (or something as equally as Kaltastic) when the price is so ridiculously low. Go! Now!

I promised I would show you guys what I picked up at the Clothing Fair so I decided to show one of my most feminine finds, the Mahari dress from { Zaara } by Zaara Kohime. This is a dress that is normally available at the mainstore, but it is being sold in a special Relay for Life bluebells color and at a slight discount of L$ 450. It comes in all layers, the most popular in the folder as usual, with additional ones boxed to save on inventory space. You’ll find it at the { Zaara } booth on the New Delhi sim.

All About The Relay For Life Clothing Fair

This is it, the Relay For Life Clothing Fair officially starts today with a kick-off party at the Patch Thibaud auditorium at 1PM SLT.  The middle sim of the clothing fair will also be open for over flow (also the location of the general landing point). The fair’s other 8 sims open up at 3PM SLT for you to get your shopping on and drop those lovely Lindens on some drool-worthy items that benefit a great cause. The fair will run through to Sunday, March 21 when the sims will be shut down at 9PM SLT.

This year, 150 creators are participating, offering up 4 items each which will have all proceeds go to the RFL foundation. Due to the huge amount of lag expected, please remember to de-prim and de-script – you don’t have to go bald, just be considerate of others. You can also reduce lag with the settings on your viewer by reducing draw-distance, unchecking avatar imposters under avatar rendering in the custom area of the graphics tab in preferences, and turning off particles (you never know who might show up with one of those awful poofers).

I went through all the sims to collect direct tp points for you all and made a couple of notes on each.

New York:

The New York Public Library contains panels with useful/interesting info, and there is both realistic and fictional builds, for example: the Ghostbusters headquarters.

Tokyo:

There’s a lovely park here in the center, and quiet sitting areas scattered around.

London:

The center of this sim is reminiscent of Trafalgar Square in real life London, England.

Melbourne:

The is a cute terace sitting area, a natural feel with tropical flora and fauna, it reminds me of an open-air mall.

Milan:

The whole build is like a shopping piazza with marble flooring, very elegant and old world.

Rio de Janiero:

A hot weather, beachy sim, with straw palapas, bright colors and patterns. What a place to spend an hour shopping 🙂

Paris:

Welcome to France! You’ll find the monumental Tour d’Eiffel (aka the Eiffel Tower) as well as classical sculptures.

New Delhi:

Take in the beauty of tiling, water fixtures, terra cotta builds, and mosaics.

I’ll be featuring some of the things I grabbed up in the coming days, as well as fill you in on the photo contest that’s going on.

On The Real

Wow it’s been a while since I’ve done a post! So sorry about that, but there has been a lot going on in my real life that has kept me plenty busy and logging fewer hours in SL. Anyway, during my blogging absence, my bessie Shay Savon opened a store of poses and other things she comes up with, appropriately named *Sh33k Poses & Random Stuff! I was supposed to do a post about that when it happened, but being a crappy friend, I didn’t have time. Anyway, I love her and the things she comes up with (you might remember her tattoo I wore here). She also has a nifty blog for it, so you can keep up with her releases. The poses used for today’s piccy were created by the lovely Miss Savon herself and are part of the Casual Gal pose pack, although you can buy a single pose for L$ 35 or the pack of all five for L$ 150.

Also, have to shout out about my new fave kicks, the Pure sneakers from 2REAL. Created by 2REAL Okelli, these babies are fully customizable, every area can change color or pattern (either one shoe or both) with a simple to use HUD and is resizable. It also comes with 2 sizes in the folder, so you can just wear and color to your heart’s content if you’ve got pretty standard sized feet – I’m wearing the small pair and they seem to look fine without any size tweaking. A pair will empty your wallet by L$ 600, but considering these can match pretty much about anything, I’d say they are more than worth the investment.

I’m easing back into blogging, so be gentle with me!
