WHAT DID IT TAKE TO GET HER BALD!!!!! THE CLOTHING FAIR CLOSED WITH A HUGE BANG AT 9PM THIS EVENING!!!!
Everyperson who made a donation to a kiosk, everyperson who bought an RFL Item, every designer who designed an RFL item, every entertainer , every DJ , every team member and the list goes on and on ... Thats what it takes.....
Shortly before 9pm slt this evening a big roar went over the Rezzable sims and the RFL clothing fair as the Relay Raiders team hit thier goal and raised 4 million lindens before the end of the clothing fair.... becasue of that feat... Pips Fetid , the designer and builder of the beautiful sims, will be bald for a week... The efforts of so many people and OMG Natasha Leckrone's Rockin Rockers .... you guys are amazing ! Thank you !!!
The clothing fair was a huge success and we have found some really awesome new friends through all of this.. but ... yes but... the work has only started... the shops are still open in thier main stores, and the RFL vendors are still out there..... becasue RFL doesnt end till the 20th of July .
This clothing fair is now wraping up and the final number will be in tomorrow but it doesnt stop us from thinking what is it going to be like next year... Well, more about that later... for now... i just wanted to thank everyone involved and the entire SL community of shoppers for being part of the event.
Untill theres a cure !!!!! GO RELAY !!!!!

Don't forget the fair closes at 9pm slt on the 23rd of March !!!!
Shopping has been awesome.. the designers have really stepped up the game and I have to tell you we set the bar here... how will Pips and I ever out do this next year. There have been so many great things happen here that I cant even begin to put them all down. YOU ARE ALL MY HERO!!!!
We all have reminders of why we are here and this week in the middle of shopping and music and fun, i got smacked in the face with a reminder . I want to say to everyone out there... to remember ... we are one team.. it doesnt matter what kiosk you drop a dollar in or whose item you buy we are raising money for a bigger cause. Relay is my team and im so proud to know that a week into this years campaing we have already raised 6 MIllion Lindens for Relay ... that is more hten 20K USD and how amazing is that..
I wanted to come here and talk about the fashion and designs but there are so many people out there talking about those that i felt i needed to write a little about RFL and what the fair has done for RFL of SL this year... so my HAT IS OFF to everyone involved and there are no words to say what i feel inside...
THANK YOU !

This has been unbelievable! Opening the sims was a bit like supermanfighting through kryptonite… but people fought through it, and the donations started to pour in. 1Eternally Blessed made an appearance donating a wopping 378,000L, money all of you paid for the ads you see throughout the sims. YOUROCK!
There’s still lots in store in the way of entertainment. Wednesday we willbe dancing to the following:
11am-12 DJ Doubledown Tandino
12-2 DJ Swaffette Firefly
2-5 pm DJ Nomad Rovio
5-7 pm DJ Vivianne Draper
7-9 pm DJ Bcreative Wilde
Don’t forget about the treasure hunt! Look for the boxes placed throughout the sims, and please visit www.sl-newspaper.com to get the code!!!!
Will update tomorrow!
OK here is the deal....
The Vendors are out !!! it seems that there have been some issues when the sims have crashed or restarted with all the work that is being done on the grid .. vendors , boxes , missing prims were apearing ... I have checked into this and i have talked to the designers about vendors..
This might be a constant problem while SL is upgrading the code .. we dont know but we are keeping a close watch on it ... If you have a question about what a designer is doing for RFL my suggestion is to ask them.. .Everyone here is in full support of RFL and that is why they are all apart of this fair ... Every Designer is going to be FIGHTING FOR A CURE!!! ... so if you want to know what your favorite designer is doing for RFL .. dont be shy... ask them....
Thank you everyone for your compliments on the sim .. the Relay Raiders have worked long and hard for over 5 months planning this ... to make this the best event to hit SL in a long time !!!
Remember !!! dig deep because we are here for one reason and that is to find a cure for Cancer!!!
hit the kiosk with that little extra you have, buy the limited editions, and just have fun!!
Go Relay !!! Until theres a cure !!!

We finally got Pips back up and working hard and the troops arrived to assist in getting the different teams in with the RFL Vendors to set up. Oh you have to know that when you are planning something like this anything can happen and Happen it did!!!! David Jacobs , Event CO-Chair for RFL of SL , was at the sims helping out today and the wager was made..
It seems he has accepted the wager: if the Raiders (our team sponsoring the fair ) raises 2 million linden in one week (yes just 7 days ) ... well he will wear a dress for 1 week!!!!!
I am sure he is regretting that now that he sees what we have done to get ready for this huge event . If everthing goes well by this time tomorrow night we will have our first Million! GO RELAY!!!!
So, now for the final wrap up and yes, omg, Pips and I are going to get to sleep tonight!!! WOOT!!

So get your shopping shoes on ... get those lindens ready .. buy every item in the RFL vendors there are tomorrow and lets Raise that 2 million in the first day!!!! ITS TIME EVERYONE ...

This week alone we have had people come to the rescue at different times and I really dont know how to thank everyone for pitching in . I put out a call for some graphic help a few days ago and in a matter of minutes my ims were crazy with people volunteering to make signs what ever needed to be done. Thank you Chiman, Forda and Bastchild. You three saved some long nights. And thank you to everyone who responded to our call for help.
Now, Tomorrow is the big kick off for Relay for LIfe and collections start for this year. I will have my vendors and kiosk tomorrow finally and im sure the designers will be so happy to be able to finish setting up . I do want to say ... if you know anyone who wants to be a part of this event and would like to set up an RFL vendor at the fair have them im me. It doesnt matter what team you are from , it doesnt matter what team name is on the vendor... what matters is that we raise money. Let me say that again ... what matters is WE RAISE MONEY FOR RFL. We are all in this fight together. we all want to have the same outcome. A CURE FOR CANCER!!
So if you want to join the fight contact me in world and lets join hands and FIGHT BACK!
The countdown has now started 71 hours and 42 minutes till the RFL Clothing Fair '08 opens its doors... Lets get ready to shop everyone !!!!
Until there's a cure!!!! We Relay for Life!!!!!

You’re not dreaming. The Clothing Fair 2008 is here! We are just days away from SL’s premiere shopping event of the season. Featuring 84 shining stars… ahem, designers all coming together to kick off the 2008 Relay For Life of Second Life’s fundraising season for the Relay Raiders.
Relay for Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature event started back in 1985 by a Colorectal Surgeon from Tacoma, WA; and has now become an international movement, with over 600 communities spanning 18 countries outside of the United States. Relay For Life is designed to “CELEBRATE” survivorship and raises money for life-saving research and programs, “REMEMBER” those who have lost their battle, and unite community members committed to “FIGHT BACK” against cancer.
It’s hard to imagine that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. 1 in 8! We can make a difference!
PS ... As soon as I can upload some pictures they will be on here for you to peek at.... also watch for the flickr group .... SecondLife .. RFL Clothing Fair 2008 is the group name !!!

Here’s my philosophy. Everyone is having a hard time rezzing and can barely move. They are focused on shopping. Do you think they care what you look like? If you are reading this and know someone who needs to give this post a whirl, please forward it on and help the rest of us.
Here’s my list of tips and tricks that seemed to have helped me survive the lag at the Relay for Life Clothing Fair:
Remove your prims: Yes, girls. You too can live without your lashes, face lights, prim skirts, 200-prim boots, and yes…*GASP* your hair! Try a system skirt. There’s lots of cute stuff out there that has NO PRIMS! Besides, others will think its just the lag and your hair is slow to rez.
Prims, Part 2: Take them off before you go! The server will be slow to respond, so they won’t come off right away, if at all. A little preparation will take you a long way.
Remove scripted objects: AO’s, multi gadgets, mysti tools, anti-away and anti-spy devices, AV radar, and translators. FYI, I find flying less traumatic than standing when I’ve got no AO!!
Turn down your graphics settings: turn off local lighting and water rippling, set your terrain detail to low, and crank down those sliders as low as you can stand it.
Cam in from a neighboring sim: If you are lucky, stand on the property line and cam in. Also helpful if the sim is full. There are 4 sims for this event so if you are on one and there happens to be some lag just head over to another sim.
Remember: If you are just looking to shop then shop on off peak times. There will be lots of events going on during the day (ie: Fashion shows and Live Music) so if you don't want to participate then make sure you check the schedule to see when they are happening.
Any tricks or tips you’d like to share? Favorite shopping outfits? Please let me the rest of us know how you survive the lag-fest!
The Team has worked very hard to make this event as lag-free as possible so remember to do your part and enjoy your shopping!!!!
Until there's a cure!!!!
