Lapointe & Bastchild at Fashion for Life

18 03 2011

The love story of Paul Lapointe and BastChild Lotus is almost as romantic as their clothing. Married last fall in real life, the two originally met in SL and reached around the world to be with each other. Their love and romance imbues everything they create—you can go from dark gothic to sexy casual to pure beautiful to tall, dark and handsome when you shop at L&B, all with their cojoined style.

Dark gothic is Lapointe & Bastchild’s bread and butter. Somehow the energy created between the two individuals brings out a dark romantic vision that is deliciously intriguing and sexy. Paul and BastChild agreed the New Orleans-influenced Irving Penn sim, built by Syngen Sohmers, was an ideal home for their store. New Orleans holds many fond memories for the newlyweds.

Both creators have honed their skills and provide more and more creative work, serving all moods of their customers. For example, this sexy punky little outfit (shown with their versatile color-changing boots that include a hud—FFL Exclusive!) highlights how they can go from dramatic romanticism to sexy grunge in one turn.

Even casual is no problem for L&B, as shown by this darling little outfit with its cropped hoodie sweater, distressed jeans and funky sculpty belt. Paul and BastChild’s talents contribute so much to SL and it’s an honor to have them sponsor a sim at Fashion for Life.

And they also make men’s wear. This iconic tuxedo will make any man stand tall and handsome and take him around the grid in style. They also offer the incredibly-styled shoes shown (and honestly, there are only a handful of really great men’s shoe makers in SL).

Paul and BastChild have participated in Fashion for Life for several years because they know how important the work the American Cancer Society is. In 2007, cancer was the cause of death of 13% of the people worldwide (7.9 million). It killed 700,030 people in North America in 2007; 2,326,515 in Eastern Asia in one year; more than 50,000 in Australia that year; and 521,303 in Western Europe in 2007.  It’s a global disaster, much more expensive and tragic than any other disaster you might see on TV or in newspapers right now. Relief for this is needed year round, year after year. Paul and BastChild’s generous donation adds a small bit to this. They also know, despite the “American” in the Society’s name, their donation will help globally.

Honor Paul’s and BastChild’s generous donation. Shop at Fashion for Life, going on NOW through March 22.

:. WoE .: at Fashion for Life

14 03 2011

Dick Wiesel has been bringing sexy casual to SL for three years, giving girls and guys the kind of grungy burnished look that takes them out of the fantasy ballrooms and plunks them into a more revved up real life.

Woe at Fashion for Life

Did I mention sexy? Dick seems to have some secret sauce in his clothes that he adds that makes them simmer with a sort of understated sexiness. Yes, there are bared midriffs but rarely do you see something overtly skin baring.

Woe at Fashion for Life

It’s as if Dick’s fantasy of sexy is the girl next door, amped up a little with some grunge, some complex textures and some easy casual. I mean, Dick’s favorite girl looks sexy in sweats and a loose tank top.

Woe at Fashion for Life

Dick also offers some great looks for men, along the same line, and he will be showing all this and FIVE new offerings at Fashion for Life, which is open NOW. Dick generously and unhesitatingly offered to sponsor a sim, offering his brand name and an ample donation to support the American Cancer Society. The sim he sponsors, Shulman, has been lauded by Tyr Rozenblum as “bad ass.” Come see it and all the great stores on it and the other eight sims.

Azul at Fashion for Life

28 02 2011

Evening wear in SL is a big deal. Lots of women and men want to come into SL and live out their fantasy and dream of being wealthy, well-dressed, and elegant. Mami Jewell understands this too well and caters to the well-dressed set with her beautifully textured dresses.

Azul at Fashion for Life

Mami’s offerings at Azul range from the drop dead sexy to elegant to dramatic. She has mastered the high-cut leg to perfection, making elegant sexy with a mere slit up the fabric of the skirt.

Azul at Fashion for Life

Mami has also mastered the prim, using sculpties and flexis with ease, allowing her design to dictate the prims rather than the reverse. Her texturing is unparalleled with shadows running over the prims and into the system pieces seamlessly, creating the perfect fantasy of beautiful couture.

Azul at Fashion for Life

Mami has generously contributed to Fashion for Life in the past with her designs. This year she has continued her generosity with a VIP Sponsorship. She knows the money she has donated and the money from her donated creations goes 100% to the American Cancer Society.

Azul at Fashion for Life

See what Mami is offering this year at the Fashion for Life, March 12-22, SL’s biggest fashion fair on 9 sims hosted by the American Cancer Society and SL’s Relay for Life.

Kouse Singh at Fashion for Life

23 02 2011

While our mission for Fashion for Life is to have fun and help raise funds for the American Cancer Society, for some of our participants, it’s a much more personal event.

Kouse Singh has always participated in Fashion for Life. She offered a statement for the blog so people could understand why she participates. Kouse says:

Every year when what was the Relay for Life Clothing Fair, and what is now Fashion for Life, comes around, I always make time to support this cause, which is dear to me.

In the span of my life, I’ve lost many a family member to cancer, and each time one of those souls passes, the tragedy of it touches those of us who remain with much grief, and sorrow, wishing it could have been beaten.

More than half of my own family members have been diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives, some of these on more than one occasion. My prayer is that through concerted efforts, such as Relay for Life, one day there will be a world without cancer. How much less pain, worry, and fear there would be, without this cruel, indiscriminate disease.

Kouse also offered that cancer is something that touches many people’s lives, around the world. These photos show Kouse’s sneak previews of her dresses and jewelry to be offered at Fashion for Life. The income made from these items will go entirely to the American Cancer Society.

Kouse Singh at Fashion for Life

This collection of dresses and jewelry will be offered by Kouse exclusively to benefit Relay for Life. They will be first offered at Fashion for Life.

Kouse Singh at Fashion for Life

As with all Kouse’s work, they show off her vision of a beautiful fairy-like world where women are garbed in formal and ethereal attire. Her gowns take inspiration from history and fantasy with richly made textures and prim pieces delicately placed just so to build a beautiful silhouette.

Kouse Singh at Fashion for Life

Kouse will also be offering this exquisite set of jewelry complete with bracelets that I do not show and two other smaller crowns tilted left or right so they can be worn with other hair.

Kouse Singh at Fashion for Life

It is our pleasure to host so many prolific and talented desigenrs such as Kouse, who are dedicating their craft and labor to raise funds for the American Cancer Society.

Morea Style at Fashion for Life

18 02 2011

French fashion has always been the cornerstone of the industry. France is the home of couture, of elegance, of clothed sexuality. It’s also the home of Morea Decosta, the owner of Morea Style.

Morea Style at Fashion for Life

Morea Decosta represents her vision in translucent flowing prims, delicately decorated textures and seductively designed system pieces. Morea, like the finest French couturiers, understands a woman needs to feel sexy and needs to feel light, sensual fabrics against her skin. She also understands a woman wants to show off her best features.

Morea Style at Fashion for Life

She also recognizes that a woman needs different looks for different occasions, so she doesn’t only provide dramatic ball gowns. Cocktail dresses and pant suits also feature in her fashion, all carrying the same stamp of sensual elegance and beauty.

Morea Style at Fashion for Life

Morea Decosta has participated in Fashion for Life for several years. This year, Morea Decosta decided to donate for a store space at Fashion for Life but she generously added a personal donation to become a VIP Sponsor. She did this because she knew many would see her brand and because she knew contributing to the American Cancer Society through this program insures all donations go directly to the ACS without passing through anyone else’s hands.

Blacklace at Fashion for Life

17 02 2011

Mariska Simons hit on a vital part of SL life when she conceived of Blacklace—sex and love. In the business of seduction in SL, it’s not enough to just seduce with words (though those are important). We have the image of the avatar that plays into all this. When a woman wants to seduce a lover, prettying up and wearing lace or satin is a good plan.

Blacklace at Fashion for Life

Mariska’s lingerie is sometimes subtle but often pretty blunt. A Blacklace girl knows what she wants and how she’s going to get it. With laces and ties, leather and bindings, garters and thongs, she’s telling you pretty strongly what’s on her mind, and it isn’t a trip to the grocery store.

Blacklace at Fashion for Life

Mariska also knows that a girl wants to feel pretty. It’s the outward manifestation of her inner image—she is sexual and beautiful, strong and assertive. She wants to show off her beauty and revel in her femininity. And for many who are in SL, being able to do this fulfills our fantasies.

Blacklace at Fashion for Life

Mariska gladly offered to be a VIP Sponsor and Store Sponsor for Fashion for Life. She realized supporting this cause would be a great opportunity to give back some of what SL has given her. As well as offering money out of her own pocket to be a VIP Sponsor, Mariska will have a store at Fashion for Life where she will donate 4 items whose proceeds go to the American Cancer Society via the RFL program in SL. Grab some of these pretties and other beautiful things in her store and help her fight for the cure.

What’s New, Pussycat?

2 02 2011

Pussycat, Pussycat
I love you
Yes, I do!
You and your pussycat nose!

What's New, Pussycat?

When your partner says she has never heard you so “ooey gooey,” and generally she thinks you are cranky, you know someone has hit a soft spot. I was invited to the KittyCatS sim once again, this time to cuddle the little kittens that will be soon be offered for sale. Breedable, holdable and transferable, these kittens are going to become the favored pets of many, including the fashion crowd (can anyone say optional diamond collars with matching jewelry for their owners).

What's New, Pussycat?

Although these kittens can be bred, they are really pets. Furniture, baskets, feeding bowls, even a cute suitcase by Barnesworth Anubis, are all offered as accessories to pamper your pets. They have come up with all sorts of features for breedable owners that make them user-friendly and also the opportunity to make the cat permanent so you don’t have to deal with breeding or feeding.

I got to walk around with my test kitty and take photos. He sat happily in my lap for this shot. I had a hard time handing him back. What is brilliant about the kittens is that they ACT like cats. When I went to click to hold him (you don’t have to “wear” it), he strolled away and then finally decided to come back around to be held—snooty just like a real cat!

What's New, Pussycat?

The textures for the kittens were made by my friendship partner, Callie Cline (which some people had guessed—the eyes are very Callie-like) and the sculpties were designed and sourced by Callie. The scripting was done by Dennis Lagan. Equinox Pinion is also part of the development team. (If those names sound familiar, they are the owners of the Fruit Island Estates, SL’s sixth largest estate.) The team of Callie, Dennis and Equinox did an amazing job of making the kittens catlike. The sweet cuddle animation when you hold the kitten was made by Isabella Baroque.

What's New, Pussycat?

You do realize I can’t pass on doing a little fashion here. My cute dress with scarf is from Moonstone Eiren, who has a sweet little shop in Caledon. She works hard on her stuff, fashioning each piece with care and artistry. I really like this for the great ruffled skirt. My sexy-as-heck boots are from Gospel Voom, a recent new offering which I will be showing again so I can give them more attention. My hair is from Catwa Clip, a new store for me and offering hair with exciting volume and flexiness. And finally, my luminous skin is from Apple May, and you will be seeing more of this skin. I really really like it.

What's New, Pussycat?

Pussycat, Pussycat
I love you
Yes, I do!
You and your pussycat face!
