I decided to take part in the Bare Face Challenge that Genkai Tesla started! The challenge has been taking the Second Life blogger, designer, and picture taker community by storm! Countless people have taken part in this fun & uplifting challenge, so I decided I would join in as well.   The challenge consists of no makeup, no lashes, no photoshop. Just a bare image of your avatar.

So here I am!

Miss Virtual World 2nd Photo Challenge “My Favorite Movie Of All Time”

Previously posted @ JewelsOfSL.
Miss Virtual World 2015 Second Runway Challenge
“MY FAVORITE MOVIE OF ALL TIME”
Once upon a time there lived a young girl who loved her father very much.
My inspiration is Danielle from my all time favorite movie Ever After, A Cinderella Story.
 Not long after marrying, her father passes away leaving Danielle 
with a step mother and two step sisters. 
She is called Cinderella by her step sister for reading by the cinder and ash of the fire. 
 By chance the Prince tries to evade an arranged marriage, steals Danielle’s father’s horse, 
and meets Micheal Angelo on the highway. 
Setting off a chain of events of no return. 
Danielle goes to court to free one of the servants, meets the prince and a romance ensues. 
The only problem is that the step sister has her sights on the Prince. 
When the step mother becomes aware of what the little Cinder girl is up to, 
she is locked in the cellar and away from the ball.
Micheal Angelo saves the day and sets her free.
“A bird may love a fish Senior, but where would they live?” Danielle asks Angelo.
“Then I shall make you wings.” He replies.
So he builds her a costume from her mothers wedding dress to wear to the ball,
 to tell the Prince the truth about her social standing.
Breath, just Breath, she utters to herself as she stands at the castle walls. 
Waiting for the prince to recognize her.
When the Prince learns who she is, he turns her away, she flees in tears. 
Immediately following she is sold into slavery to an unsavory man. 
She stands up to him and demands her freedom. 
Just in time for the Prince to come to her rescue.
The reason this is my favorite movie is simple;
Although she loses her mother, then her father and is forced to be a servant to her step mother, 
she never loses her fight. She works hard to keep the land that her step mother is bound to loose. When she loses the prince she still has inner strength enough to stand on her own
 and demand her own freedom. 
She did not need anyone to rescue her, 
which made her perfect to be a princess. 
The Prince comes back after all to wed her and create a happily ever after.

Miss Virtual World 2015 Prism Challenge

Aquatic

When Jewel’s parents first brought her home, they thought for sure they had given birth to a fish. She took to water like a bird takes to flight. She came equipped with a larger than life personality and is known to go totally overboard, pun intended. This girl may swim with the fishes, but you will never find her belly up!

Jewel rides in on the Silver Great Wave headpiece littered with tumbling ocean shells by Alegria. The colors of the waves peak under the headpiece in adorning curls by paperbag, spilling down across her face exquisitely painted by Madrid solo.

Sparkling jewelry add refinement and beauty supplied by Jumo. The coral reef itself dances across her chest and sweeps down to her hips in a rainbow of color from Boudoir. Yellow fins, crafted by Tideborns, bring the fish inside of Jewel ablaze.

Blue and gold nails match the wave of color set to life by ZOZ.  Fascino made these sexy and alluring spiked heels that will catch the attention of any merman swimming by. The sparkles in the dress, by Prism Designs catches the sparkles in Jewel’s eyes and it radiates out in a wave of sparkles by Deeplight Designs. Bubbles by NeCo dance with the sparkles completing this aquatic look.

5th MVW Runway Challenge – Vampiress meets High Fashion

Previously posted @ JewelsOfSL.

5th MVW Runway Challenge – Vampiress meets High Fashion 
Jewel has chosen the Victorian Vampiress, representing forbidden sexuality, 
coercion and eternal life (or damnation.)
One glance into her eyes and you will be compelled to dance, 
whisked away in romance and end up as her dinner date. 

She is wrapped in an evanescence of darkness, fueled by the pain of her loss. 

She carries the still beating heart of her lover, cut from his chest by murder driven villagers, illuminating the way to her revenge.

She has cloaked herself as a protection against the deadly rays of the sun 

and to conceal her identity until she wishes to make herself known. 
No one is safe with this deadly beauty ruling the night. 
Beware that she doesn’t suck the life out of you!

6th Runway Challenge with Miss Virtual World “BODYART”

Previously posted @ JewelsOfSL.

There is a magic of change in the autumn air, the wind swirls through the cherry blossom trees that wrap around Jewel’s body, carrying petals and sweet fragrance everywhere.

Beyond the rustling falling leaves is the alluring geisha, educated from youth to serve, entertain and become art itself. Sit back and relax as she entertains you.

She envelopes the very essence of artistic nature and passion, she is alluring and provocative.  It leaves you wondering if it is her that is caught up in the magic, or is it you?

Ice Bucket Challenge!

Previously posted @ ~*~*~Demented Dollie~*~*~.

So, as you are surely aware, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has been taking social media by storm, and if you haven’t done it by now, you surely at least KNOW someone who has! I have been nominated to so this challenge, both in RL, and now in SL, by my dear friend Rudhmellowen! I haven’t managed to do it in RL yet, as I haven’t been feeling well and didn’t fancy the idea of making it worse by dumping a bucketful of freezing cold water over my head, lol. Anyways, I have accepted Rudh’s SL challenge instead, although Millie wasn’t too happy about it!! And, yes, I HAVE donated to the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MND is what we in the UK call ALS).

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a progressive wasting disease that affects the messages that are sent by the nerves in the brain and spinal cord.This means messages gradually stop reaching muscles, which leads to weakness, wasting and disability. It can affect how you talk, eat, drink, walk and breathe. There is currently no known cure for MND, and it is vastly misunderstood and under-funded in terms of research.

So, without further ado, here are MY nominations; Guen Gothly, GiaNikai Juliesse and Ghost Mannequin… do it! :)

~body~
skin: la petite morte ~ india~ t1,
eyes: dead apples ~ sinsitre ~ bloodlust,
hair: truth ~ clover,
lips: riel ~ Spinder ~ Ruby,
tattoo: vestigium ~ lady Muerta,

~worn~

skirt: drbc ~ lulu mini skirt,

bracelets: drd ~ group gift bracelets (resized),
ring: deadpool ~ obnoxious tentacle ring ~ red,

Calle’s Photo Challenge Submission – Like Mother, like Daughter

So, this months photo challenge theme is ‘What are you thankful for’, and for me, that was a pretty easy answer. I am thankful for my family, specifically my Mom, Shelly :) So, I asked her to pose with me in a post, and she agreed!

Now, first thing you will notice, we are both wearing the same skirt, funny thing is, this actually happens a lot, both in RL and in SL. While our tastes in clothing are not exactly the same, we do agree on many pieces. So we thought it would be fun to show 2 different looks based on 1 piece we both have in common. Lucky for you all, the Savannah high-waisted skirt from Tee*fy is available on the Marketplace, for only L$ 1!

family1

For my Mom’s more sophisticated look, she was able to bring in a few other pieces that I wanted to bring to your attention. First, her SLink feet shoes from Gypsy Chic, which are L$ 55 per play at a gacha at the current round of The Thrift Shop. As well, her purse, and the cross necklace, which are both part of the Danger Danger full outfit from Rose Marine, which is on the Marketplace for L$ 55. As you can see, bargain finding runs in the family.

family2

My punky, eclectic look, was pulled together with a great Marketplace find in my top, which is from {the.outhouse}, and is only L$ 25. The stack of bracelets I am wearing is another Marketplace find, and even better, are free!. Lastly, my super cute, and bright, clutch from Emporium, is also in a gacha at The Thrift Shop, and is only L$ 15 per play. It also happens to be a gift from my Mom…wasn’t that nice? Not really, that colour yellow is not a favourite of hers :P .

family3

It’s funny, as I was trying to pick a pose for us, when we hopped on the one we settled on, my Mom said it looked just like when I am trying to drag her to do some shopping. See, SL and RL can be so similar to one another. LOL!

Before I leave, I just wanted to say thank you to my wonderful Mom, Shelly Macchi, who is always there for me, both in RL and in SL, even if she did take longer to put her outfit together than I did!

Alright everyone, I hope you have a wonderful evening, and until next time, TTFN *waves*
