Oktoberfest 2017 – My own View ;)

Tomorrow it will start again – The yearly Oktoberfest in Munich in Germany.

When I saw the last Monthly Midnight Madness gifts from Salt & Pepper, I did know I have to do something with it πŸ˜‰

Since I am not the bigges fan of traditional Bavarian fashion or music, I had to think of a way how I can put my personal twist on it πŸ˜‰

If you look at the modern Bavarian fashion trends you can see that young people modernized the traditional Dirndl and Lederhosen a lot. so why not take on that new and fresh thought of a modern Oktoberfest look.

I put on the “Lederhosen” from Salt & Pepper, and the the hard part came… what to add…

I did know I wanted a special hair style. Either some messy braids or some Rasta looking hair. Discord Designs is known for their dreads and braids and so I took a closer look on their creations and found the “Nita” hair. The style was just perfect for what I had in mind!

For the shoes, usually you have typical ‘Landhaus’ style shoes, if you go for the traditional look. But since I wanted to have something modern I wanted to have so thigh high boots. Those I found at Blueberry. During their last sale, I found the “Celia” boots. What really got me was, that you have 2 different styles in the pack. One flat and one high heel version. With the well known high quality of the Blueberry designs, I instantly fell in love with the detailed folds and textures πŸ™‚

For those who know me… a tattoo can not miss πŸ˜‰ The one I chose today, certainly comes from White Widow πŸ˜‰ The “Desierto” tattoo was originally made for the Cosmopolitan event, but I am sure Julie has it at her main store by now. I loved the huge tiger head on the chest so much with the “Lederhosen”. It made a great contrast for the whole look.

Last but not least, the cool makeup and the super sharp stiletto nails were made by Slackgirl. I love the way how Slackgirl expresses her creativity and sense for art in her creations. She always surprises me with her release, which are so extraordinary and still so versatile. you can make so many different looks from glamorous or beauty to really artistic and different.

First I was looking for a Ferris Wheel or a Fair where I could take the pictures for today, but then I thought with that typical party look I would not really get what I wanted. I went home again and started to build up a set with the “Abandoned Playground” gacha from 22769. The more parts of that gacha I rezzed the more it looked like the idea I had before :p

In the end, I made it to complete my own vision for my Oktoberfest 2017 and I hope you like it πŸ˜‰

Ozapft is!

Azul, BaObA, PosESioN & Nailed It! for the FIERA Spring Fashion Fair 2014 @ SAVIAD

SAVIAD Azul+Nailed It+BAOBA 001

Azul as well made a beautiful gown for the FIERA Spring Fashion Fair 2014 @ SAVIAD. The “Claro de Luna” gown is a partial mesh gown with as well flexible prims that let some parts flow amazingly with every breeze of air that surrounds you πŸ˜‰ .

The hat as well was made for the FIERA Spring Fashion Fair. BaObA made a few wonderful hats for the fair and the “Orchids” just was the perfect match to the “Claro de Luna” gown.

The beautiful “‘Spring Wedding” nails from Nailed It! are as well one of 2 super cute sets, wich you can find at the SAVIAD sim.

So I just had to find some jewelry and hair to complete the look. The hair comes from EMO-tions and is called “Yashi” with the high updo, I wanted to underline the elegant and still modern look of the dress and the hat.

For the jewelry I wanted something with a timeless chic and I decided to go with the “Talluah” set from Maxi Gossamer.

You still have the chance to look at all the amazing creations at SAVIAD until the end of the month. So better hurry before it is over πŸ˜‰

Fashion for Life – “It’s Time…”

Fashion for Life 2012-β€œIt’s Time…..”

March 10th-20th 2012

http://www.fashionforlifesl.org/

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/DreamSeeker%20Its%20Time/128/128/26

β€˜Fashion for Life’ is the longest running and most successful fashion fair in Second Life β„’ and marks the annual start of the officialΒ  β€˜Relay for Life’ events that take place inworld each year.

All donations are given directly to the β€˜Relay for Life’ general fund which benefits the β€˜American Cancer Society’ and its thousands of beneficiaries who rely on the charity for support and advice.

Fashion for Life is a hundred percent not for profit, and all organisation, building work and coordination are driven by the work of its volunteers which helps to maximise donated money.

So what’s New for 2012?

This year, Fashion for Life spans an incredible TEN lag free sims with over 200 stores selling the latest fashions, accessories, hair and unique designer items made especially for this event. There will also be gacha areas, a hunt, a raffle and a SALE- all with the end goal of raising funds for the American Cancer Society via SL.

The sims will be laid out in a cross formation and will represent the theme β€œIts Time…” with builds representing stages in time:Β  past, present, future and timeless. All building and landscaping have been created by some of SL’s top designers and builders to produce a beautiful environment for your charity shopping sprees!

Alongside the fabulous fashion, there will be a sim dedicated to providing a minimum of 12 hours entertainment and activities every day, so you can socialise, have fun and meet new people too.

Our sims have been kindly sponsored by β€˜Dream Seeker Estate Corporation’ which has drastically reduced admin expenses, helping to free up even more money for Relay for Life.

Harper Beresford, Fashion for Life Lead executive says:
“Fashion for Life is not just about fashion and it’s not just about fund raising-it’s about supporting the members of our community in SL who have been touched by cancer.”

Cancer touches everyone. We sincerely hope you join us in this kick-off event for Relay for Life in SL, helping raise money for the American Cancer Society.
