The good thing about seeing performances at SL9B is that you will chance on some DJs and musicians you may never have heard in Second Life before. Today Kristopher Walpole played on the stage I was managing, and I had a most blissful afternoon listening to him sing his original music and covers. He is all that and a bag of chips (and he sang Joni Mitchell—be still my heart). His voice is absolutely wonderful. I am smitten.


That being said, I acted highly uncool and got all fan girlish. I gave him fashion tips (“You’re missing a boot”) and then I pointed out that he had tape on his glasses. Really, Harper, can you be more dorky? He was very gracious—undoubtedly women do this all the time.

I was wearing this dress because I had put it together for a blog. The dress is a fantastic gift from a new club called “The Nest.” Go there, enjoy the great music and atmosphere and the friendly folks, and grab this beautiful dress. The hosts, Mr. and Mrs. O will welcome you with open arms and great dancing.


Again I show Tricky Boucher’s newest skin, which has his signature soft yet realistic look. This time I wore one of the many lipsticks included to brighten up my appearance, though these eyes could stand a neutral.

I wanted to go less traditional with my hair—who said you always have to have an updo with a gown, especially when the gown is as sexy as this one? MissAllSunday Lemon’s mesh short haircut here with its assymetrical cut gives a bit of grit to this look.

Also giving a new twist to this look is AvaGardner Kungler’s artistic and intricate jewelry. I always love to see whatever new thing Ava has invented—it is never traditional and never ever boring but it’s also not so ostentatious it can’t be worn. She evokes natural shapes—the graceful symmetry of insects, the sensuous drop of water off a petal, the shimmering movement of breaths of wind on fronds. She pushes past replicating RL jewelry to making something uniquely new.


Oh I could drink a case of you darling
Still I’d be on my feet
oh I would still be on my feet

~ “A Case of You” by Joni Mitchell

  1. Thank you for the mention of our club! I was thrilled and surprised to see it. Paris Metro gives the gown as a gift via The Nest.
