Alternative Generosity

Sometimes you see someone in SL do something that just kind of blows you away with its personal effort and generosity. Today I experienced that.

Mr. Maht Wuyts stayed awake 26.2 hours and played alternative and pop music in order to collect money for Heifer International. Supported by several friends including Jasper Halfisch, IsaDaft Trollop, Arcadia Nightfire, and Cajsa Lilliehook, Maht stayed awake the whole time and played just awesome music. I showed up when he was entering hour 24. He said he had not repeated any tunes, and he was STILL playing excellent music. (I said it clearly wasn’t “the grounds at the bottom of the pot” music.)

Could this be the “alternative”? In the end, Maht collected 134,000L almost single-handedly, without a lot of extravaganza, without asking 50 people to give up their time and “play along,” without making it all about him. He simply stayed up 26.2 hours (sitting at a computer), played his extensive and amazing music collection, and spent that time encouraging, charming and cajoling the Linden out of people.

Alternative

So what does a girl wear to  the Velvet when she knows she wants to dance and cough up some money?

Alternative

I opted for this sexy-cute top camisole from Annyka Bekkers paired with tight leather leggings zipped up the backs of the legs from Anyusha Lilienthal.

Alternative

I wrapped little string things from Siyu Suen around my arms and wore some cutie hoops from Shannon Carroll.

Beneath it all was this lovely fresh skin from Fade Lei. What I really like about the skin, besides the very realistic but hand-drawn details (freckles, full pink lips, a little shadow under the eyes), are the tan lines on the skin. There is something so cute and sexy about tan lines from a bikini showing through, I think.

Alternative

I upped the ante on the whole outfit with sky-high ruby stilettos from Tesla Miles.
