“What was that, meow?”

That’s RIGHT!

Our favourite cobbler Gos made his first official donation to the PDSA this week! The total was a staggering £1553.14 (around $2364), all earmarked to care for the pets of people in need by providing free veterinary services to their sick and injured animals as well as to promote responsible pet ownership.

Gos for PDSA 600 Full (A larger picture is waiting for you here! )

You can read the full details on the Gos Boutique Blog and pleasepleasePLEASE visit the shop in-world to try these amazing shoes for an important cause. If you aren’t able to buy a pair of shoes (or maybe you already have all of them ;) ) there are donation boxes throughout the store.

As some of you know, our dear Gos had a close call in August of last year when his cat Archibald was injured in a car accident not too far from his home. Arch is all right now but the experience encouraged Gos to do more for people in similar situations. This is a direct copy+paste from the NC you will find in the middle of the Gos mainstore:

Paying it forward.
Gospel Voom [Gos]

Back in August my cat Archie was struck in the head by a speeding car. His injuries were extensive but his prognosis was positive so I didn’t hesitate to pay for treatment. I was uninsured and thus reliant on my own savings and the kindness of friends and family to see him through.

Having been the beneficiary of so much support I was left to ponder the fate of pets whose owners can’t afford to treat their injuries and I felt a burning ambition to get involved and to ‘pay it forward’.

The charity I want to support is the PDSA which stands for ‘The People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals’ and it’s a UK based charity devoted to caring for the sick and injured animals of people in need. I want this to be more than an event, I want it to become a lifestyle. So my plan is to create a special, exclusive design with every new release and to give 100% of the proceeds from each and every sale to the PDSA.

***Only applies to Items displayed with a PDSA logo***

All fees from the sale of the exclusive item will be sent to PDSAFundRaiser Resident, whose accounts will be published on a quarterly basis so as to ensure complete transparency. The avatar is run by PurplePenny Broome who’s credentials are second to none.

If you’d like more information or would like to get involved please contact either PurplePenny Broome or me, Gospel Voom, in-world.

Regards,

Gos

So yes, the shoes are beautiful (they’re always lovely) but more than that, they represent a very real desire to help others. If you don’t have a pet of your own, you must know someone who does and thinks the world of their fuzzy friend and family member. Someone who would be (or has been) heartbroken by knowledge that their beloved pet needs care beyond what they can provide.

Wherever you live, whatever your situation, caring is always a good thing to do and when you live in a global community like Second Life, anyone and everyone is a potential neighbour. So whether it’s a large donation or a small one, whether you have a gorgeous new pair of shoes at the end of the day or not, showing support for this charity also demonstrates that you believe in making this world a better, more caring place. It shows that you have noticed and appreciate Gospel Voom’s effort to do the same.

Truth and Longing

Writer’s block: DEMOLISHED!

Well, mostly.

If you’re just tuning in now, you might have missed my newest blogger challenge! Yes, I was having a hard time putting words to (metaphorical) paper and I’ve noticed that the longer you put writing to one side, the harder it is to start up again.  Hence the challenge to just post something, already! 

Feeling similarly stoppered up? Give it a try!

Raw Truth 600( The Truth.)

I hope you’ve heard by now that our beloved Sea Hole is closing. Like me, you might have wondered why a star brand at Collabor88 was missing, only to sigh, nod sadly, and sulk over the news for days. Whether you made it to the mainstore right away or not, whether you bought half the store in one fell swoop (like me) or resolved to get a few things, only to find you absolutely NEEDED the entire store afterwards (also like me), it is my sincere hope that you have done everything in your power to send this incredible designer out with a bang (and all of your L$). Drinkenstein Sorbet, you will be missed!

Rawish Truth 600

(The WHOLE Truth.)

Second Life is always changing. This is most likely the only thing we can say for certain about the place we choose to make our home. Generally, it’s a good thing; it’s what keeps our world dynamic. It’s the reason we’re always searching for new clothes and shoes, hair and accessories. It’s the only logical reason to explain why we own sixteen different houses, all tucked neatly into our inventories, and more furniture than any one person needs. If you’re a blogger or a photographer, you’ve been exuberantly gathering poses for weeks, months, and even years. If you’re a blogger or a photographer, no doubt you’ve heard that aDORKable poses is closing too.

*Sadface*

I can only describe what I’m feeling now as a sense of longing. For what, exactly, I’m not sure. All I can say is that SL will be a poorer place for the lack of these two creative spirits and truly, I wish them both well in their future endeavours.

More truth 2 600

(And nothing BUT the Truth. So help me Gos.)

We SHOULD end this post on a positive note, though, and in the spirit of this I would like to remind all of you about Gos‘ incredible new(ish) Ursula wedges. Look up, waaaay u-, HEY!, eyes on the shoes! Down, down .. there!

Okay, they aren’t cheap, but who cares?! I fully intend to demonstrate in the coming posts how they can be worn with absolutely everything, from casual summer sets, to glamourous evening wear, to yes, even clubwear. I don’t tend to go in for entire collections but, gosh, I would rather own ONE pair of gorgeously versatile shoes I’ll wear constantly than fifteen pair that will sit in my inventory, forgotten and gathering dust. Admit it, you agree with me.

Learning Your A-B-C’s (Part One of I-don’t-know-how-many!)

Okay, wow. So. This is turning into quite the project, isn’t it?

Are you as excited as I am to be doing this? (I certainly hope so!)

So today we begin with pretty, pretty horses, but I promise we’ll get a little farther this time. :D We’re going to talk about Awesome Breed Creations (ABC) in a general way to start. We’ll have a peek at the mainshop with a very broad overview of what an interested outsider (ie. me) would be interested to know about the special features ABC has to offer.

ABC Intro 1 600 ( Pretty, right? It’s even nicer at 4048x. :D)

Teleporting onto the sim is easy, the landmark is right here, and you’ll notice immediately that the place is just beautiful. Horses everywhere! As you’re able to see in the picture above (and probably every other picture I take for the next three months), there are a ton of beautiful, beautiful options as well. This is the first thing that struck me about ABC and the thing that I can’t help but revisit when I ask myself if I really want to try another breedable:

They’re just so pretty.

Once you’re able to drag your eyes away from the paddock near the landing point, you’ll probably realize that the mainstore is right in front of you! The building is quite a bit larger than it seems in the picture just below (we’ll fix that in a minute), but if you look closely you’ll see some very interesting features. First, there is often a helpful person standing right outside in case you need help with anything ( thank you, Matty! ). Second, there’s a Toys for Tots kiosk right by the entrance. They’re all over the place, really. :D

ABC Intro 3 600 (The entire sim is decorated for the holidays; warms the heart, doesn’t it? )

At this point, I feel like I need to share something with you. Something that may shatter your worldview if you aren’t braced for it.

Ready?

ABC Intro 2 600 (Why are the smallest boxes on the highest shelf?! )

These horses do more than eat and make babies! 

This is the second thing that is really, really driving me to consider investing in this brand. You can absolutely breed ABC horses; take a quick peek at the Horse Features page on their website and you’ll see enough options to keep any devoted breeder busy. If this isn’t your particular cuppa, though, there are still fun things for you to do! Things like training a horse for speed and strength and stamina, something that takes dedication, experience, and time. A good training program involves finding just the right balance of attributes for a horse to compete effectively in …

Races and Competitions!

Yep, that’s right! You can take an ABC-sanctioned jockey class and enter official events. You can show up for hands on training in-world and test your horses (or a friend’s horses) on the official track! You can enter a race and win your entry fee back and then some! There is something happening in-world nearly every day (check their Events Calendar page), with momentum building toward larger competions throughout the year.

*Whispers* And there are horse-and-rider costume contests for ‘Best in Breed.’ (*Swoon!*)

ABC Whispers 600 ( “He will be mine. Oh yes, he will be mine.” )

Consider the possibilities, my dears. I’ll have more to share with you in the very near future. <3

Holy Cow I Forgot the Title!

Hey all!

Just a quick post tonight (this morning?) but I wanted to share this cute little outfit with you before I started falling behind again. The first thing you’re going to notice (probably) is my new mesh friend; I’ve named him Charming and he just loves to stand around while I take pictures all day long. Cute, right?

So I’m wearing a couple of items from round 43 of the Designer’s Circle, Beautycode earrings and a pair of jeans from even.flow, along with my favourite Gos boots (yes, I have about six pairs of ‘favourite’ Gos boots but these are one of them) along with these sunglasses I can’t stop wearing either. Leather jacket from shine, newish Truth hair, and a great little tee from mon tissu .. what’s not to love?

Portia Pexington: Origins and Evolution

Whatever our reasons for joining Second Life, whatever path lead us here, everyone has a story that begins in another time and a very different place.

My story began online, way back in 2004 (holy wow!), in a place called Paragon City and, more specifically, in a game called City of Heroes. I played a mutant heroine named Ms Permafrost, an ice/storm controller (if that means anything to you). She was (is?) a defensive character and it was always my pleasure to keep opponents on ice with crowd control and damage mitigation, while tossing the occasional heal to allies as needed. Is my nerd hat showing?

Permafrost 600 ( Standing on a rooftop .. where else would I take my hero pics? )

Anyway. Most heroes have an alter ego and Ms P was no exception. Enter Portia Peterson (alliterative names are SO comic book), corporate heiress, do-gooder, and all-around fancy person who made heavy use of the wardrobe changing shop ICON and was on a first name basis with Serge, the NPC tailor. ;) I’m sure you can see where this is going now.

Since nothing lasts forever, my time in City of Heroes was limited to a year or two and while I kept in touch with a few friends from my old server (Virtue – I’m a roleplayer too) the character fell into disuse. Until one of those friends convinced me to join Second Life to pick up our heroic storylines in a new place. That would be here.

Frost 600 ( This shot is very similar to the first formal pic I ever took in SL but, gosh, it’s so much prettier. )

I’ve stopped role playing since then; good friends have come and gone and while I’ve lost the urge to seek new adventures as Ms Permafrost (hah), I’ve found her alter ego much more to my liking. In time, she became .. well .. me. :)

What prompted this post, you ask? Simple. IKON released a new pack of Eternal Eyes this weekend and one, named Frost, brought back so many memories I had to share them here. Sometimes that’s all it takes. <3

Sixties Shine

So here I am, awake at 5am and smiling after a few glasses of wine, and I’m excited to share this next post with you! This is a dress I’ve been styling for a few days but nothing was working the way I thought it should. I don’t wear much black and I’ll be the first to say that it’s my biggest challenge to work with deep, dark shades like this.

Until I realize that colour is the answer!

Shiny Sixties 600 Close

Check it out: shine‘s simple black sixties dress (available NOW at Designer’s Circle #42) with Cae‘s beautiful starfish jewelry set. I changed the jewelry to ‘patina’ (and THANK YOU, Cae, for having an option to change every item at the same time <3) and found a pair of blue/green ombre tights from Milk Motion. Truth‘s Cyanne hair with a greenish headband (so pretty!) and my fantastic HOC platforms round it all out perfectly.

Pekka has also released several different eye makeup packs since I was there last and … I sort of bought all of them. Today it’s the fresh look eyeshadow and doesn’t it look wonderful with IKON‘s Eternal Eyes in ‘lagoon?’

Today!

Working Title: Yesterday’s Tomorrow’s Tomorrow Today

First of all, I’m sure you can see why I went with a simpler title but let me explain:

It was always my intention to cover the Tomorrow Today event in installments; it’s the easiest thing in the world to promote a new event because most everyone has heard about it, been waiting for it, and are excited to see fantastic new offerings especially when proceeds are donated to a worthwhile cause. The thing with Second Life, though, is that time is a little skewed. Many things happen on a daily basis and the more time we spend here, the fuller every day seems to be. It’s easy to say “hey, I really love this __________, but I’ll just come back for it later. I won’t forget.

Sometimes we forget. We’re human. We err.

I was supposed to write this post yesterday under the borderline-creative-and-cheeky title “Tomorrow’s Tomorrow Today” but .. again, I’m as human as anyone. I didn’t get to it. Ugh.

tt4 600( I love this picture so much! Click here for the full shot, omg. )

So this is my reminder to all of you (and to myself, aack!) that today is the very last day of the Tomorrow Today event. You can read my previous blog posts covering the event here and here. You can read Match’s blog here. You can SEE how much of a difference one month has made, how much closer Matchbook Monday is to an amazing improvement in her quality of life.

TT - Champagne 600( Another warm, comfycozy picture taken in my fabulous home! )

I’m asking you to think back to the beginning of the month; was there anything you really liked that never ended up in your inventory? So many amazing designers have lent their names to the cause, donating their time and resources to support one of their own. Go back today. Have a peek. If you haven’t been yet, check it out. Help make a difference today!

Of all the dresses ..

.. in all the shops in all of the SL events right now .. the CadyLady and I bought the EXACT SAME ONE. At Cinema.

Crazy, right? But really .. would you have been able to resist the Volstead ‘Liason’ in honey? This lacy, silky, sheer chemise (if you aren’t wearing the glitch layers) left me speechless the second I tried it on. I’m still having trouble drumming up the words to describe how much I love this piece. Just .. go to Cinema and pick up the demo so you can throw me a line, here.

Okay?

Thanks.

( Hanging out at home with two of my favourite ladies and the new !bang Serenade piano prop. Go see! )

Reunited in blogship by our mutual love of Volstead, Cady and I decided to do this post (and maybe others!!) together; something we haven’t done in months and months and if we’re a little matchy-matchy, you’ll have to understand how excited we are to be doing this again!

The dresses below, ‘Champagne’ and ‘Empire,’ are also available in the Romance section at Cinema along with a bunch of other goodies, all classy and exquisite, so don’t be shy here, all right? I’m looking forward to sharing more of my finds from here very, very soon. <3

( Wondering where Cady and I went last night to take this picture? Check here for the wider shot. Raar. )

To Be Free

So it’s no real secret that I’m loving the boho and as we move through autumn and into winter, I’m really hoping to see more fun patterns and layers to mix and match. This is what the bohemian style is really about, as far as I’m concerned; it’s the freedom to wear what you like best, to find something (or a bunch of things) that suit you and bring a smile to your face. :) See?

( “What in the world are you standing on, Portia?” Click here and find out! )

I mentioned Shine in my first blog post of the month so brace yourselves because I’m going to be covering this label a LOT in the coming months. The pretty ruffled dress you see above is available at this year’s Boho Culture Fair, opening TODAY and running through October 31st. The theme is urban hippie (WOOO!) and after my first foray into the madness, I have to say that I can’t wait to get in there and see more!

Shine is also offering the fantastic mesh crochet arm warmers visible in BOTH pictures (because I hear you can’t wear gloves every day, bah!) at the Boho fair annnnnd the taupe dress in the lower pic is a NEW release.

I’ve decided to work towards a more harmonious and soothing style with these outfits; I love the way IKON‘s bleached lavender eyes pop with cheLLe‘s dreamy navy eyeshadow; they way my Milk Motion floral tights convince the Maitreya radical boots to play nice with a dress that’s not -quite- the proper shade of purple otherwise but heck, it’s more fun than wearing it with black, right? The Burley braid (and SHAME ON YOU for not telling me about this place!) in platinum or this newish Truth hair in one of the fade shades (seasand, omg) are just right. Soothing. Calming. Siiiiiiigh.

Gos hunter booties (yep, still not taking them off) in taupe and one of my favourite pairs of sunglasses (thank you, Miel!) in sumac remind me of early October mornings at the family cottage where everything is misty and quiet and you can practically steep yourself in good vibes.

Yep, standing in my backyard and not by the lake at my cottage .. but there’s nothing wrong with that! )

Coming Soon to a Cinema Near You!

Hiiiii everyone!

You may not be able to see me inside the GINORMOUS cinema but if you look verrrrry closely there’s a little yellow and blue person standing by the counter. Squint .. squint .. see me? HI!

You’re probably already aware that the Hottie Cooterati Experience event begins (OMG) LATER ON TODAY but if you haven’t bought your tickets yet, I’m going to tempt you with a couple of fun things I’ve found so far and probably rave way too much about an event which is very close to my heart.

Who doesn’t love going to the movies?

Now zoom out, just a little. :) )

Okay, so first of all .. this event is HUGE and it’s all set inside a giant movie theatre because, helloooo, that’s the theme! As you can see below, there are a bunch of theatres to visit and in each one of those, smaller areas furnished by some of our favourite SL designers!

Cinema will be an elaborately themed sim-wide event centered around one of our favorite past times… movies!

Starting October 13th, Cinema will bring you into a massive and beautiful, intricately designed multiplex cinema featuring 8 individually themed theaters. You’ll be immersed in the movie going experience, and in true Hottie Cooterati style, we will have some fun surprises awaiting you.

As always, our events are more than just about a shopping spree, we want to give you an experience, something to have fun with, and something you will remember.

Don’t worry though, the stores won’t fail you as a shopping event as well. They will be pushed to their creative limits to bring you inspired and themed items from the romance, action/adventure, scifi, horror, fantasy/musical, film noir… and…. XXX genres. That’s right, we just couldn’t leave out a touch of bow chicka bow wow.

( Flickr page transfer – energize! )

I’m not about to head into the ‘XXX’ area unescorted so for now .. it’s SciFi time! “Why Portia,” you ask, “is that a Star Trek commander top?” The answer is YES (thank you Eclectic Apparel) and you can get one too – at Cinema! Need a phaser? How about some 3D glasses? There are hundreds of items, all film starlet-ready and waiting for you. Don’t forget to visit the HCE concession stand either, where everything is calorie-free, fat-free, and also free-free!

Now, just sneak over with me to the Action/Adventure area and check out something super neat. That’s right, my dears – Gos came to Cinema and I helped!

( HEHEHEHEEEEEEE! )

So yes. Cinema begins today! Enjoy and pleasepleasePLEASE tell me all about -your- adventures super soon. <3
