RFL for My Sisters

Throughout the week I have show fashions that are being given as items by designers around the grid to benefit RFL. The beauty of the Fair is its international flavor—9 sims, 8 cities from around the world. It’s also amazing the worldwide reach of the designers contributing to this cause, from the US to Australia, Japan to Brazil. Cancer knows no borders; it finds its way around the world.

RFL for My Sisters

One of my best and most unexpected finds was this amazing outfit by Syngen Sohmers. Her contribution of this outfit, which does include the kind of modest head covering that may be chosen by some Muslim women, reminds us that there are many who are affected by cancer. It also reminds us that the American Cancer Society finances funding and research around the world. For example, this research helps my sisters around the world to learn about proper breast cancer and cervical cancer screening. It reaches past the barriers of cultural differences to that fundamental humanness of our lives. Syngen’s fidelity to the colors and styling of such an outfit is amazing. I was delighted to get it.

RFL for My Sisters

I show her outfit with one of Tuli Asturias’ new Eva skins, this time in Tone 7. Her new set of skins are lovely and *finally* released for everyone to enjoy. I think we have missed having Tuli on the grid—welcome back.

Rise, Gentle Moon, Rise

I had to show another set of items I picked up at the RFL Clothing Fair and the Melt exhibition, combined to make a very interesting look.

Rise, Gentle Moon, Rise

Aradhana Voight has made a beautiful gold dress to benefit RFL as well as being sponsor of the absolutely gorgeous New Delhi sim built by Grace Loudon. With its amazingly shimmering gold textures (making gold look like this in SL is no easy feat) and beautiful silhouette, this Indian-inspired gown is magnificent and sleek for any occasion. Aradhana cleverly adds a feathery optional waist skirt that can also be worn as a separate piece so you can wear the top with pants.

Rise, Gentle Moon, Rise

I show it with this amazing skin from Juliette Westerburg for the Melt exhibition. Again, having the artists combine efforts based on a common theme was a great exercise for all of those who participated. Some, like Juliette really answered the call, in this case using her great skills in texturing to create magical and fantastic skins. I like seeing her go from her “everyday girl” fashions to this more artistic and fanciful skin. It shows the girl has some chops and can think outside that same old box. The hair is a crazy cool piece I bought at Hair Fair last year made by Miranda Milestone. I had never had the opportunity to use until now. It needed an equally cool look to make it all make sense.

Rise, Gentle Moon, Rise

Goodnight, Moon:

Hair: [MC] Moon – gold by Miranda Milestone for Milestone Creations

Skin: -tb- Arctic Ice (blonde brows) by Julliette Westerburg for Tres Blah available at Melt: An Installation on Thin Ice

Dress: :Mashooka: RFL 2010: Isha gown by Aradhana Voight for Mashooka available on the New Delhi sim at the RFL Clothing Fair

Blue Mist for RFL

What is so terrific about SL is that you can put together a really esoteric look and it’s ok. You can go out, no one will make a wide berth for you like you are nuts, and you can have a wearable artistic expression.

Blue Mist

I travelled to the Tokyo sim at RFL for this beautiful dress from CelestialRay Serpente. With its combination of layered textures (roses and gradients and pearls and fish scales) and diaphanous quality, it is complete fantasy. The gown also comes with another attachment that serves as a sort of fishy mermaid tail and a fuller ballgown skirt I don’t show here. It also has a “sexy’ version of the top showing shadows over the bust.

Blue Mist

I paired it with an exquisite skin from Launa Fauna made for the Melt installation. I entered the “installation” and the main message I got from it was that a group of creators decided to get together and come up with an artistic challenge for creating content around a loose them of ice or cold and sell those creations. I thought it was a terrific idea for these young artists to do that. The combination of the cohort of creators creates a sort of energy that they can all tap from. This is what SL is all about!

Blue Mist

Play misty for me:

Mysterious for RFL

Have you ever seen that raven-haired woman, the one with the sly smile on her face and the legs up to there, wearing sexy boots with stiletto heels and looking mysterious and interesting?

Darksexy for RFL

Me too. Never met her. Never had the guts to talk to her. She was kind of intimidating. That doesn’t mean I can’t try dressing up like her for this post, and wearing Solange Cerveau’s offering to benefit RFL might be the ticket to unlocking her secrets. With Solange’s incredible system skills and sexy aesthetic, this dress comes off sexy and elegant all at once. Solange has always gotten “it”—having a short skirt is not all that’s needed. She has full sleeves ending in lace cuffs, a sexily wrapped torso and then she shows skin with a criss-cross back, plunging neckline and a skirt up as far as it can go before it just becomes crass. Solange, like Delora, was obligated to make her ads PG especially for the Fair; check out her great ads at the Fair.

Darksexy for RFL

Tuli Asturias’ Eve skin seems pretty innocuous and sweet for the most part until you wear it with these red lips and the sparkly eyeshadow (how does she do that). Pair it with this wicked hair from Lamb Bellic and suddenly you have a beautiful alternative girl, a suicidegirl with a great collar made by Vasha Martinek. (By the way, I have a frowny face Harper shape—one that looks like a fashion model. I tried her face shape with this look, and it was all wrong. I went back to slightly smiling Harper. She is much sexier, I think. Who wouldn’t want to know what’s making her smile?)

Darksexy for RFL

I am showing the gothic boots from Oct Oakleaf’s new offerings, this time with the handy uh.. cuffs removed. (Get the scoop on the cuffs here.) Oct has made some very darksexy boots here with the filigree embossed in red on a supple black leather. Check the beautiful folds around the ankle—now that’s a sculpty.
