Bliss Couture’s Magnificent New Gowns

In addition to the beautiful finalists, the Miss Bliss Couture 2010 event showcased the release of 5 stunning new formal gowns from Amutey Decuir for Bliss Couture. Varied in style, rich in textures, colors, and detail, these gowns are breathtakingly good. I had the privilege of styling each gown in two different colors, and I traveled to 8 visually delightful sims to photograph the results.

Frank Sinatra… Dean Martin… Sammy Davis, Jr… Shirley Maclaine… Peter Lawford… Joey Bishop… The 50s and 60s saw Ol’ Blue Eyes form a close-knit friendship with a group of talented pals that became known as “The Rat Pack.” Performing together or just hanging out, the Rat Pack was the epitome of cool. And designer Applonia Criss took inspiration from this iconic group with their undeniable style to bring you her latest releases, Chantkare’s “Rat Pack” Collection. You’ll be snappin’ your fingers all the way to Vegas… http://slurl.com/secondlife/Tabula%20rasa/132/219/27 By Breezie Noel Photography furnished by Applonia... read more

Interazzo Style in Costa Rica!

A new shop has pulled into Costa Rica. Antje Newman, designer of Interazzo specializes in female and male footwear, clothing, furniture and even has some skyboxes. For you ladies there are a number of choices such as ankle boots, stiletto booties as in the fabric covered boot, flats and knee high boots. The men’s selection is exceptionally well made, from skater shoes to two tone sneakers. The skater shoes really turned my head with the range of color and texture choices available. The sneakers also offer a variety of choices and give the wearer a comfy and casual appearance. These are so much like my own in real life that I think I’m going to have to go back and buy the rest 😀 The furniture offered ranges from sofa sets to recliners. There are a number of very modern lamps. A standout for me was the Solitaire sofa in Orange. Normally you know I’d never touch orange. However, blended with the dark wood it really comes out quite well. The skyboxes we saw, and used, were modern and well laid out and just the right size for your prim budget. Ladies, do try the Tweed outfit with matching Tweed flats. The texture is very realistic while not looking overly so. Also try the Sugar flexi skirt dress. They come in a myriad of colors that look good enough to eat. A necklace and earring silver set is included. Let’s help Antje Newman feel at home and pay her shop a visit. Or if your like me, keeping going back to buy shoes 😀 Click to teleport to Interazzo in Costa... read more

It is only fitting that the Miss Bliss Couture event be this huge considering the largely successful year that the Bliss Couture clothing line has had in 2009. The highly anticipated event has finally arrived and will be held at the beautifully designed PATCH THIBAUD AUDITORIUM, the exact location of Miss Virtual World and other fabulous in-world events.

The final 20 will be judged on casual and formal wear and we are sure it will not be easy choosing one winner.

Each woman who felt she had what it took to represent Bliss Couture sent in her entry with hopes that she would become the “face” of this top clothing brand.

Chantkare’s Newest Designs Are Out Today!

Honestly, the winter clothing of Second Life is so incredible this year. A perfect example of a fine designer at the top of her game is Applonia Criss of Chantkare. Just look at her last release of 2009 – The “Sweaterless” ensemble is a delightful wool knit dress with muffler and gloves…just gorgeous. And today, oh boy, get ready for a treat. Today Applonia releases two fabulous Chantkare gowns and a new hairstyle from her Labieja label. “La Traviata” is a vision in sheer lace and exquisite details, including a whimsical headpiece and shoulder armor that put an optional surprise twist on this lush gown.   In keeping with her romantic mood, Chantkare’s “La Boheme” is a marvelous confection of light and dark, with yards and yards of tulle, and, again, an edgy accessory in the “Boheme Face Guard” that takes the design to another level.   Both photos show Applonia’s new “Labieja Hair 2010” updo – a perfect accompaniment to the new styles as well as a fresh look for 2010.   Well done, Appl!

Baiastice Releases New Designs

Noted designer Sissy Pessoa is known for her beautiful Italian style, whether it’s haute couture or casual. Wandering the Baiastice Sim is a delight, with multiple stores offering her clothing, shoes, skins, accessories, even poses from this multi-talented woman. Sissy’s recent releases include a lovely full-length gown as well as stylish separates in tantalizing colors to mix and match. Her latest ankle boots and shoes are fab, too.

Costa Rica December Rezz Days!

If your birthday is near Christmas, does that mean you won’t get any Xmas presents? Just my things that make you go hmmm thought for the day 😛 And onto the festivities! The final resident Rezz day party of 2009 held at the beautiful Ganesvoort House by WK Ganesvoort who won the “Most Beautiful Parcel” contest this year. I can’t begin to tell you how grand it is. You really have to drop him an IM sometime and visit for yourself. Being a December Rezz day resident himself, he was quite eager for all to explore the luxurious home and have a good time. Decorated with extraordinary attention to detail, the wallpaper, furnishings and exquisite art made it a perfect place to have the last party of the year for residents. Sadly, undoubtedly due to the holidays, most of the Rezz day residents didn’t make it. Along with Mr. Ganesvoort, Georgianna Blackburn turned up decked out in her finest to rock the party along. [I tried to snap a pic of you but I think you crashed 🙁 I’ll get you next time :D] The tunes by DJ Azu carried us along and WK urged everyone to join into a conga line around the dance floor, though lag did hurl Millie offline. You’ve not lived until you’ve done a conga at Ganesvoort House surrounded by ball gowns flapping around your head. Resident Concierge Jimi Xi, took that moment to climb atop the regal fireplace and proceeded to mimic a Chippendale stripper with a Jimi Hendrix vibe thrown in for good measure. I’m not sure if Linden dollars were thrown at him or not. However it... read more

Count Down with DeCuir

New Year’s Eve is champagne, resolutions we’ll never keep and, of course, fireworks. Henri DeCuir, owner of the Celebration Sim and DeCuir Creations, consistently brings Second Life the best fireworks on the grid and he’s updated his Ball Drop to help us ring in 2010. The Ball Drop is just 39 prims, but large enough to be the perfect focal point for your New Year’s Eve celebration. It is scripted to count down to midnight SL time or to a time you specify through chat. The user friendly interface makes it the ideal product to help ring in the New Year. As the timer counts down, the ball drops. A voice joins in the final countdown (in case you’re too involved in conversation or the bubbly is hitting you a bit hard and you forget to watch). DeCuir’s specially scripted fireworks shoot from the Ball Drop as midnight approaches, creating a spectacular display. The text on the Ball Drop changes to wish you and your guests a Happy New Year 2010. Against a midnight backdrop, the display is magnificent and a must-have if you plan to celebrate with your friends in-world. For added oohs and ahhs, add a set of fireworks around your land and set the sky on fire as the you say farewell to 2009 and welcome 2010. Ball Drop ad provided by Henri DeCuir.

Aleida Says Goodbye with a Huge Closure Sale

Second Life is about to lose a talented designer and a beautiful person: Aleida Rhode. On January 1st, 2010, Aleida will say goodbye to Second Life to spend more time with her real life. Her personal happiness is much deserved, and we wish her well. Aleida’s departure brings with it a wonderful opportunity for savings, as she has marked down everything in her store – clothing, shoes, accessories, skins, and more – to huge discounts. The sale will run until December 31st, and then the Aleida store will close its doors. I hope you will all take this chance to purchase some really great things that will never again be available to the SL community. Here is Aleida’s goodbye message: Date: 21st December 2009 NEWS from :: Aleida http://slurl.com/secondlife/Glendalough/58/58/2 Dear all :)) It has been a while I have been thinking of this: Shall I close my shop and leave SL?? The question popped up in my mind for a while now – actually couple of months – so this is not something that just came in my mind today and quick decision made. Now I feel it is a mature time to say: Yes, I close my store and focus on my RL which I have been too much away from due to SL business. It has been a great learning experience for me: What I have achieved in SL has affected my RL in many ways and most of them are very positive.

Icarus Rising Home & Lighting

Written by Rebekah Bagley Did you ever stumble into one of those unexpected delightful experiences? I’ll spare you (at least for now) all the details of what originally brought me to Icarus Rising Home & Lighting; to explain it all would be a story in and of itself. Upon arrival to the store, I felt fortunate to find the owner, Vince Vlodovic, and passed along some information I thought he should know. Of course, while there, I decided to have a look around his store and was very impressed by what I saw. http://slurl.com/secondlife/Icarus%20Rising/230/120/504 Vince’s creations go far beyond attractive and stylish furnishings; I would later find out that, just like people, what matters is really what’s inside. “Well, in SL you have to have a source for media content,” Vince told me, “And what I have done is made it very easy to find things…the TV has a touch screen menu that makes setting it up and operating it very easy. It returns search results with pictures, so you can easily visualize what video or movie you want to watch and then touch the screen to play it.”     Vince Vlodovic started at the beginning of summer ’09 with a simple lighting store. “I had an idea on how to combine several effects into a prim lamp,” he said. “So going with that first script, I created a line of nice lamps.” Vince’s work would gradually rise from there to selling mostly televisions and media equipment. However, if you are in the market for more than just a television, Icarus Rising is still the place to shop.... read more

Costa Rica’s presence on The Best of SL Magazine’s website will increase the exposure of the estate as well as bring new readers to the magazine. Having known Giancarlo Takacs almost since the very beginning of my time in Second Life, and being well acquainted with how his dedication to excellence mirrors that of BOSL, this new relationship seems a natural extension of our friendship and a reflection of a past that includes other mutually beneficial projects between the two companies, including the presence of MISS COSTA RICA in the upcoming MISS VIRTUAL WORLD 2010. Giancarlo’s support has been an invaluable asset in the past, and together BOSL and Costa Rica take a step towards a future in which the Costa Rica community expands its Second Life exposure, and BOSL continues its mission to bring the very best of Second Life to a wider range of readers.

Tekeli-li Releases New Avatar: Calypso!

Tekelili Tantalus has released another complete Avatar ensemble – Calypso. And she’s beautiful!     Tek is known for his wonderful fantasy avatars, clothing, jewelry, weapons, and accessories, available only at the Tekeli-li shops. And Calypso is a marvelous addition to the Tekeli-li collection.  Here’s an excerpt from the description included with the ensemble: “Calypso is a complete fantasy outfit named for a legendary Grecian sea nymph, the daughter of the titaness Tethys. She figures in the Odyssey, where she keeps Ulysses upon her island for seven years.”   Calypso comes in several color choices and includes a modifiable avatar shape, boots, and a stylized krysblade (dagger), scripted to sheathe and unsheathe. There are multiple clothing pieces crafted of both sculpted and traditional prims that are copy/mod for backups and resizing.   Calypso is wonderfully compatible with tattoos, and the clothing pieces come with multiple attach points for easier coordination with other attachments and different looks.   You can find Calypso as well as other great Tekeli-li designs at the following store locations: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Hollow%20Earth%20Barony/97/60/33 http://slurl.com/secondlife/Arkham/68/146/2 http://slurl.com/secondlife/Asunder/121/130/39 http://slurl.com/secondlife/Tokebi/40/144/2 Tekeli-li! in Second Life Flickr group –... read more

Introducing New Skin Lines from Aleida!

Creating quality skins is incredibly difficult. (Note I said “quality” skins.) So much attention must be paid to every tiny detail, every shade, every skin tone, every body part. There are lots of “skinners” in Second Life, but there are, in my opinion, only maybe 5 or 6 really extraordinary ones. I am always pleased when I see a designer try their hand at skins and actually do a good job. And we have a winner. I’m very happy to introduce you to the new skin lines of Aleida!    Aleida Rhodes is already a popular and successful fashion designer, with everything from casual to formal to haute couture to shoes and accessories. And now she has turned her talents to creating skins. So far she has two lines – “Bjorg” and “Freya” – in multiple skin tones. (More to come soon, says Aleida.)     I’m very picky when it comes to skins. And let me tell you, Aleida has done a superb job. The details are good, the lips are lush and well drawn, the makeup colors are lovely, and she’s made some of the finest, most natural freckled skin I’ve ever seen.   It used to be that we chose one skin in a range of makeup colors and stuck to it for ages. Things have changed. With the drop in cost of many top skin lines and the rise in virtual fashion sophistication, it’s not unusual to wear multiple skin lines for different moods and purposes. I hope you enjoy the photos here, and I hope you’ll stop by the Aleida store to try some... read more

Presenting CCD’s MVW Finalist Jewels!

The Miss Virtual World pageant celebrates not only the beauty and charm of the contestants, but also the work of the best designers and content creators in Second Life. Perhaps the brightest showpiece of the top finalists is the jewelry they receive in recognition of their achievement. Many fine jewelers submitted designs for consideration, but only one could be chosen. And the jeweler selected to provide the jewelry set for the first, second, third, and fourth runners up is… Caithlin Carter of CCD: Caithlin Carter Designs. http://slurl.com/secondlife/HollandCoast%202/11/71/22 We thought our readers might enjoy seeing Caithlin’s handiwork up close. Although the Miss Virtual World Finalists set will be exclusive to the lovely runners up, this beautiful set is representative of the fine jewelry of this talented designer.   Oh, in addition to fine jewelry, CCD also offers eyelashes, piercings, formal dresses, prim nails, and wedding sets.
