The Holiday Of Hope Ball, for the 5th year running, will be held at the Christmas Expo.  And returning to the Christmas Expo as a special event this year is the Avi Choice Fashion Awards.

Whimsical Happenings Lopsi TreeSince there are so many activities happening within the Expo, I wanted to highlight a few in today’s post.  My dear friend, the jolly elf Earth Nirvana of Whimsical Happenings is participating in the Christmas Tree Lot with an exclusive festive and spirited upside-down garden pot tree complete with presents under the tree.  The Lopsi Tree is a modern, unique and whimsical approach to Christmas Tree!  100% of the proceeds of the sale is donated to Relay for Life of Second Life, check it out.

SL Xmas Expo- Oceane Make-up, ZOZ slink nails & Wreath RingAnother fun event at the Expo is the Hunt for the Bells ’15, a $10L hunt with 100% donated to The American Cancer Society.  This year there is a photo contest (12/5-12/15) for the Hunt for the Bells hunt, with a grand prize of $10,000L giftcard with other prizes for runners-up.  To enter you must use at least 10 hunt items, submit a NC listing the items to Earth Nirvana and send full perm picture to Leala Spire for voting & social media placement.  Please keep the picture PG & tasteful.  Good luck!  In my photos above I’m using Spyfalle Holiday Party Paper Lanterns in the windows from the Hunt for the Bells (hint: “let it go”).

Ghee Temptations (Closer)Today, I’m showcasing a tribute to autumn in Ghee’s Temptation fascinator, an orange maple leaf and green apple.  I paired the headpiece with Indented Reese copper silk wrap dress, Madrid Solo new November group gift Falling make-up and Scrub I sit and think to escape gold necklace to enhance autumnal glow.  Hope to see you at Art in Hats 2015 events later today!

Sascha Hat (Chairs)Happy November!  I hope you had a nice Halloween.  Today, I’m very excited to share with you the 3rd Annual Art in Hats – Hats in Art 2015 charity event benefitting Team Diabetes of Second Life, an official fundraiser for the American Diabetes Association.  The mission of Team Diabetes is to raise awareness, tolerance and funds for diabetes research through the virtual reality game platform of Second Life.  The first fundraising event for Team Diabetes of SL, was the Fall Showcase in October that raised $28,009L.  The second event will be Art in Hats running from November 4th -14th with daily live entertainment performances, hat pin hunt, silent auction, fashion show and styling competition.  For a complete line up of hat designers, performance schedule, creators spotlights and more information, click here.

Sascha Hat (Crow)Art in Hats was founded by SL resident Quan Lavender in 2013 as a way for artists, designers, creators and photographers to express themselves and bring art to more people in Second Life.  In 2014, the event grew to include models and dancers with the addition of more than 100+ hats benefitting Feed A Smile charity {child organization of Live and Learn in Kenya International NGO}.

Sascha Hat (full)I have the great pleasure as one of the official blogger for Art in Hats – Hats in Art 2015 to present Perpetual Black Hat, the auction item from Sascha’s Designs.  Bursting baubles surround the black with metallic silver branch headpiece, paired with the (fashionably dead) Wicked Rose gown from the October’s Collabor88 highlighting the hard/soft edge of the fantasy styling.  Sascha’s Perpetual Black is a showstopper that can be worn with an elegant evening gown to a modern space-age vibe, so be sure to mark your calendars for the LIVE auction next Saturday, November 14th at 4pm SLT.  Bid high knowing 100% of the proceeds benefits Team Diabetes of Second Life, an official charity of The American Diabetes Association.
