Denim Bridges

Sometimes, you need to sit on a bridge in the middle of nowhere and let your perspective change a little.

Bridging

So, I found this color particularly difficult. Not because I didn’t have a variety of denim fabric/clothing, but because I didn’t have a lot of denim that matched the actual “color” denim. That doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, does it? Trust me, it wasn’t easy, but when it came together, well – it’s one of those times when something that started as a style shoot ended up showing more than that (or maybe I’m just seeing things).  More pics on my Flickr.

52 Weeks of Color: Denim


Where did August go?

No, seriously… where did it go?  Because the last time I checked, it had just started and I was all ready to have a somewhat relaxing month – and then I woke up and remembered I still had to go to work.  Man, if I didn’t have bills… or a serious addiction to really cool SL stuff…

Anyway, since today is the last day of August, it’s the last day of the Platinum Hunt – you know, the one I told you about before?  And totally meant to write more about, but August ran past me like a toddler with with a contraband cookie. Right, so, since it’s the last day of the hunt, I thought I’d taunt show you some (more) of the goodies that you can pick up for 10L each until the end of the day today (in case you haven’t already).

Ha! Platinum Platinum Acid & Mala
The hunt items are the Mustache Pearls from Ha! (comes with a scripted version to where the mustache wiggles – it’s awesome!) and Messed Memory Wired Set from Acid & Mala (just beautiful detail).

Platinum and Escher Reale Platinum Platinum Berries Platinum Deviance Platinum SLink, Blitzed & dekade Platinum Rockberry, Magika and Just Me
The hunt items in these pics are the Acid & Mala set again; the dress from *Reale* (Holds up to rezzing, and dancing – I tested it!); the top from Berries Inc.; the Enchantress set from Deviance/Rockberry Kalista skin; the sunglasses from Blitzed/jacket from SLink/skin from [dekade]; the skin from Rockberry/top from *Just Me*/hair from Magika. More pics (including some stuff from the hunt not covered here) on my Flickr.

All of these items are incredible and showcase some of the best designers/creators out there.  As an aside, I have to point out something that I love about the Berries Inc shirt.  I love how the artwork on the system shirt and the prim are continuous (depending on whether or not I’ve messed it up with a pose).  LOVE IT.  It shows an incredible attention to detail, something I appreciate, but totally don’t have the patience to do for myself (which just makes me appreciate it more).

Pink Shirt Day – Let’s End Bullying

We’ve all had experience with bullies in our lives, which is why it was so great to wander around SL today and find so many people wearing pink to support an end to bullying.

Here’s what I wore today:

Designers have also given out gifts in support of this cause, two of which I have in pictures.

Airedine Poe of Adore & Abhor sent out this t-shirt, which I love and would definitely wear anytime.  I love it because it has a sweet little girl giving you a big hug – and sometimes you just need a hug.  It also reminds us that while we have to give each other the tools to stand up to bullies, we also need to give each other comfort and support.

Faery Sola of Studio Sidhe sent out buttons and a bandana bracelet to show her support as well, and not needing to wear a pink shirt in the process.  Included in the box was a description of her experience with bullying.  Personally, while I really liked the bandana and button, the notecard was a lot more meaningful.  It is very easy to support something, it is much more difficult to share your personal experience. I’m not sure I’m able to share mine without getting worked up over it still/again, so, for now, here’s Faery’s bandana/button combination bracelet.

We have all dealt with bullies in one place or another, and we all know just how difficult they can make already hard situations (like school or work) – and with all of our privacy controls on the internet, they don’t even have to do anything to your face anymore, you don’t even have to know who they are in some cases.  I’ll save my soapbox speech for another time, but, the more we share, and the more responsibility that we take for our own actions, maybe change can happen and bullying won’t be a problem in the future.
