I’m Not Your Toy Charity Event

I'm Not your Toy-Final

This week, June 17-23, 2013, kicks off the first annual I’m Not Your Toy Charity event to benefit and raise awareness of violence against women and children. 100% donations go to “Associaçao Projecto Criar.”

“I’m Not Your Toy” goal is to raise funds in SecondLife® for RL non-profit associations against child and woman abuse. With the help of SL® designers, models, bloggers and friends who are ready to give their time and talent with nothing to receive ONLY the happiness to know that together we can made a difference in someone life.

Founded by MUTYA [VM] VERO MODERO ELITE MODEL 2013 Lua Vendetta, felt it was important to choose a charity that benefited children. Lua Vendetta’s vision is for every child in foster and kinship care to feel safe and loved, and that these special kids are empowered to create security and connection through healthy self-expression. The charity achieves this through the provision of inspirational creative arts programs that help kids develop confidence and healthy self-expression.

On Monday, June 17th there was a fashion show and charity hunt.  Unfortunately, I crashed numerous times and wasn’t able to attend the whole show, but while at the event venue I picked up a few exclusive hunt items designed to benefit the I’m Not Your Toy charity.  Lua designed an exclusive free INYT pink tee for ladies (don’t worry gents, there is a male version as well).  I paired the tee with the INYT free shoulder Owl and tie-dyed hunt skirt (middle photo).  Ghee also created the coral summer short set (top right) and image factory constructed the “I’m Not Your Toy” picture frame (bottom left).  All hunts items are available the rest of the week. This is a wonderful cause and I urge you to donate.  Look forward to exclusive creations, hunts, auctions, designer walls, and other fashion shows, so pop over already and do your part. Taxi please…

Fashion For Life – Tribute to John Galliano & The 7 Wonders of the World

Update:  I want to spotlight the ethereal Lolly gown designed by *SoliDea FoliEs*, exclusively for Fashion for Life.  It was worn by the beautiful, talented, creative and soulful Cao Lionheart, Miss. Virtual World, South Korea (retired).  Personally, I’m always inspired by Cao’s dramatic artistic styling, the humanity she portrays in her blog and her generosity of spirit.  The Lolly gown embodies all that is soft and graceful, airy and fragile, qualities that personify Ms. Cao.

Lolly gown

The Fashion for Life final runway show was a tribute to John Galliano that took place on the  Saturday, March 16, 2013 at 10am SLT.  I was invited by Warm Clarity-Jupiter, CEO of Ghee and unfortunately, I crashed more times than Liz Taylor married.  However, I was able to see the final ‘one of a kind gown’ worn by Frolic Mills, CEO of BOSL and designed by the extraordinary Belle Roussel of Chop Zuey.  Frolic was dripping in 500 diamonds and rockin’ a nice weave.  The gown was auctioned off right there on the runway.  Drama and catfights abound, and that was in the audience.  The auction started at 5,000L and quickly turn serious when a two ladies tried to out bid each other (and at some points out bid themself).  Finally, the price hit 100,000L and everyone was sure that one of the ladies were going to be seen on the grid in this gown….but out of nowhere a silent bidder drove the price up to 140,000L and crazy offers were being thrown in to sweeten the pot (Frolic will style you in the gown for 150,000L, Belle will make the same gown in black diamonds for 175,000L, and a little something about someone sucking on toes,  eeew).  The winning bid was from the silent bidder for 150,000L and one of the ladies donated 100,000L for the black diamond gown.  All the proceed goes to the American Cancer Society.

Following the live auction, some of the exclusive runway gowns were placed ‘on sale’ for 50% off, at the back of the runway available until close of FFL, Sunday, March 17, 2013.  Honestly, the sale prices were so high that I couldn’t consider attempting to justify taking any of the gowns home.  But, I took a few pictures of some of the creations to wet your appetite.  And, if you have not checked out FFL, do so now.

Boudoir Gizza

MoreaTres Beau

The week-long event closes on Sunday, March 17, 2013.  There are 7 sims, designed after the Seven Wonders of the World.  The Egyptian sim, Temple of Zeus at Olympia is awesome and houses Liv Glam, Body Doubles and Amacci.  The Greek Temple, Artemis at Ephesus houses Virtual Impressions, Mohna Lisa Couture, Belleza, and Bliss Couture.  For a lush and tropical escape, stop by the Gardens of Babylon.  This sim is truly gorgeous and it’s my favorite by far, it houses Tres Beau, Gizza and !deviousMinds.  The far out Pyramid of Giza sim is sensational, just the ride alone entering the sim is worth it….. well for anyone who saw Star Wars opening with Luke speeding in and out of tunnels, you get that and so much more.  The sim houses Chop Zuey, Madrid Solo and Morea.  Up next is the half under water sim, for a lack of better description, Lighthouse of Alexandria.  (And, for all my Steampunk lovers out there, a crazy cool half chair, half eye, half garlic thingie that worth a peek).  Personally, I got a little creeped out here but it could be my fear of seagulls rather than the sim.  This one houses Purple Moon, Boudoir and Carrie’s Lingerie.  And, finally the giant stone man, Colossus of Rhodes.  Honestly, I have nightmares about this dude and my constant climb up his leg.  He houses Finesmith, Emotions and Wet Cat.  For the sim build only and the art, go and participate.  The runway and party lounge represnted the final Wonder of the World, Mausoleum at Halicarnassus.  Also, at the main landing point there is a memorial garden, hope haven, resource library and a survivors gazebo, a peaceful and serene escape that you need to see.  Remember 100% of the proceeds goes to charity, so that’s worth taking a look for, right?
