There are a few friends in SL who are dear to me, whose friendship reaches beyond SL. (I am sure everyone has friends like that.) Douglas Story is one of those friends. So it was with great pleasure that I got the first dance with him at the opening of his new art installation with Desdemona Enfield and March McBain, called “Ripple.”
I wore Indyra Seigo’s gorgeous dress, which is being offered as her RFL donation at the RFL Fashion Fest. I can’t speak enough about the elegance and sultriness of this dress, from the beautiful rendered platinum textures to the perfectly placed gems. With its mix of exoticism and sensuality, it’s one of the most beautiful and unique offerings at the RFL Fashion Fest. (And I will note this gown is transferable, so you may easily gift it to your lady friend.)
I donned Tuli Asturias’ new offering at the Dressing Room, this sexy version of Gina. If you keep going back, you will probably accumulate an entire fat pack of Tuli’s beautiful skins at a great deal.
I shamelessly posed at the exhibit itself. I strongly encourage you to visit. Douglas’ video images and background combine with Desdemona’s incredible scripting abilities and beautiful sounds from March. Like DynaFleur and StormEye, the piece is based on interaction with avatars. So you have to be there to see it. Click on things, change the textures, make the walls flip. Take a date and float to the bottom of the huge vase and there are poseballs for dancing. And drop a thanks to Tayzia Abattoir and Larry Pixel, whose NMC group is so generously hosting it.

People hear RFL being mentioned all over the grid. Those of us in the know know it means “Relay for Life,” but if you tossed those letters out during some half-drunken party game, what might you get? “Really Fun Librarians?” “Rolling Floor Laughing?” “Rhubarb-Flavored Ladyfingers?” “Radioactive Fruit Larva?” “Raising Furious Leprechauns?” “Radishes for Lunch?” “Really Fat Ladies in Ragged Frumpy Leotards?” “Reghan Fondles Lauraleigh?” (Don’t ask.) “Really Frickin’ Lazy?” (Which is what I was when I asked my pals in “Hey Girlfriends” to help me with this—thank you, Girlfriends.)
I think it means “Really Flirty Livery.” (OK, yes I am making a stretch here but play along with me.) Elle74 Zaftig is donating this entire outfit for the benefit of RFL at the Fashion Fest. With 9 sims and some 100 designers offering hair, jewelry, clothing, shoes—the fest has anything your avatar could desire with donations by each designer for RFL (“Relay for Life,” not “Righteously Fantastic Lovers”).
Elle’s outfit is an especially good find because it comes with EVERYTHING you see on my avatar (minus the hat, which is attached to the fantastic hair from Kookie Lemon). You get the flirty minidress, laced up the back with a bow on the curve of the butt, the bracelets, and the cute boots, also laced up the back.
I show the ensemble with a new skin from Mea Carnell. Mea is putting her full effort into making skins for the avatars of SL, trying her turn at a little different look with shimmering lips and very drawn and not highly made-up eyes (this was probably the heaviest eye makeup in the set I have). I loved the pastels with the white hair. It makes for a cute chic look.
