Thank you for 4 amazing years

Dear Designers and Supporters of the Clothing Fair;

The Clothing Fair has been the most successful fundraiser in SL history and has raised a total of 14 million L$ ( over 50,000 USD) over the last 4 RFL seasons. This is because of hundreds of committed people...from designers to shoppers and builders to entertainment. It is a shining example of what can be accomplished when a community gathers together for a common goal. For this, we are forever grateful for your time, commitment and generosity.

In everyone's life there are times when they have to sit back and re-evaluate the changes in life and priorities... accomplishments and failures. And although the Clothing Fair has been one of the most rewarding experiences of our lives, it is time now to step away and focus on health issues, RL commitments and our lives together.

We will be closing any groups involved with this event in 7 days. We will send out another notice in case this first one is missed to give everyone a chance to leave before we close it for good.

Again we thank you all for your love and support and for allowing us to share with you one of life's greatest rewards...making a difference and changing lives. Now it is our sincerest hope that everyone involved will remember that Relay is about something so much larger than ALL of us and at the end of the day it's how you live your life and leave a legacy.

Nevar and Ame Lobo

SF Designs - 6 Years in SL !!!!


That is what comes to mind first when I sit and think how special it is to be one of the longest running businesses in Second Life today. I am one of the fortunate ones who has had the opportunity to get to know Swaffette and Jamir over the past 4 and 1/2 years I have worked on the Fashion For Life event ( Clothing Fair of SL ).

I look through my inventory and see all the outfits I have from my favorite designers. There is a folder called SF Designs. One of only a few that had to have its own folder due to the amount of outfits in there. Every outfit is amazing and made with love . Still this day i wear my first pair of Leather pants that got in Second Life because they came from SF Designs.

I can continue to go on about how amazing this store is but its not just the store. The People who work at SF Designs. The models, the customer service people, Swaffy and Jamir are all amazing and it is because of them that this store is still striving 6 years after opening the door for the first time !

Congratulations to you all at SF Designs... I can not wait for another year of friendship, outfits , love and working with you ! You are a huge part of our heart

Come out and wish them well all weekend.... Celebrate with SF Designs... Here

Entres Mares

I'm privileged to show you 2 stunning new gowns from Entre Mares...Iliana and Trisha.

Iliana is a sassy and sophiticated gown suitable for everything from cocktail party to a night out on the town. I love the detailing on the roses and the layering of the skirt...very feminine. The teal color is quite flattering on every skin tone.

Below is Trisha. This is a seductive gown featuring a full length lace body suit with a full flowing skirt. This would be a beautiful evening or stylish wedding gown for those ladies that would like to add some sizzle to thier special day.

Both of these are available at Entre Mares now.

The holidays are coming up! Don't miss out on these additions to your party wardrobe!

Peacock Queen

When I first saw the ad for this gown I knew I had to own it. This is Peacock Queen...the newest release from My Precious. As with her last gown, for me, she has captured the mystique and glamour of the golden era of stage and screen. I could easily imagine Audrey Hepburn or Lauren Bacall walking the red carpet commanding the attention of everyone around.

The classic black dress with the long waist is very flattering and the addition of the peacock accents make it different and classy. The matching hat comes with and without veil to suit your mood. The hemline gives a peek of leg in front and finishing to the floor in the back completing the elegant line of this gown. I'm looking forward to many wearings of this work of art.

If you haven't been there yet you really should pop over and take a look at everything My Precious has to offer. I guarantee you will find something you can't live without.

A special thank you to Agnes Finney for allowing me to continue to share her dresses with you.

Limo here.

Vivienne by My Precious

Today I'm very pleased to be able to bring you My Precious' newest release Vivienne. This breathtaking gown in snowy lace and satin will make you feel like a dream when you're in it. It reminded me of Vivien Leigh at the height of her career...mysterious and stunningly beautiful. The bodice allows enough of your skin to peek through to be alluring and coupled with the deep cut skirt, it makes for a enticing and sophisticated look.

Hurry down to My Precious and get one of these for yourself. You won't regret it.

Now where is Nev.....*evil grin*

House of RFyre

Well, Nev and I are still going through the "after Relay" inventory search and we found a couple of things from our friend Raven Pennyfeather that we had to mention here. For anyone not familiar with RFyre, Raven creates highly detailed gothic, medieval and couture designs using hand drawn textures and fine attention to detail. When we're looking for event wear, RFyre is at the top of the list of stops. She also makes a mean roast beef...*grins*

Today we'd like to highlight 3 of her latest releases...Clan, Tainted Love and the Boudoir.

Clan is a beautiful Scottish formal set in the red and black tartan pictured here or in white and black. This can be worn with a couple of different options so you can make it truly your own look.

Here we have Tainted and sexy glam goth. I love the textures and different options available to style it for any occasion. It's available in black, indigo and red.

Finally, the just released RFyre Boudoir. This one is the Barbed Blood Red and there are several other sets available. Perfect for your darker, sensual side.

All of these and more can be found at RFyre. If you've never been there, take a wander. We're sure you'll find something you like.

Fashion For Life

As many are aware, Nevar and I made some major changes to the structure and format of the clothing fair this past year. Because the changes were so successful, after much discussion and soul searching, we've partnered with the American Cancer Society to bring to Second Life Relay for Life's newest For Life event..."Fashion For Life".

What does this mean for you, the shopper? It means we will continue to bring all the wonderful designers and styles you've come to expect. We will work hard to keep bringing together the best builders, artists and content creators to give you one of the best shopping experiences in Second Life. Oh and you'll see some different signage. *grins*

We are thrilled and honored to now be a part of the For Life events in Second Life and we hope to continue for many years to contribute to the fight against cancer. Someday, we will find a cure...and until then...we Relay!

Avrele Designs

On Sunday I ran into one of my dear friends Avrele Guisse and as we were talking she was excitedly telling me about her last 2 releases, which unfortunately I'd missed while being wrapped up in the end of the Relay season. She graciously passed them to me and I ran home to try them any good fashionista would. *grins*

This gorgeous red one below is called Necromonger. It's a beautiful gown made of rich crimson velvet with the black lace accents and gloved and finished with the long spine ornament in the back. The thing I really like and admire about Avrele is the fabric textures, they seem to come alive. This gown has a couple of different spine ornament, removable side you can customize as you desire. It also comes in black and plum.

And next is Christine. This is a wedding ensemble, again with a few options to make it truly your own. I love the detail on the dress....the pearl and jewel accents, the fine lace and the unique veil. Remove the veil and lace skirts and you have the perfect evening gown. Oh and underneath all this is a scrumptious lingerie set to round out the details.

Both of these and all of Avrele's Designs can be found at the House of RFyre. Grab the cab!

Narcisse by Agnes Finney

OMG...these are the words Nev used when he saw this gown. Agnes Finney's newest release is one of the sexiest and most provacative gowns I've seen and had the pleasure of wearing for quite some time. Narcisse is a daring gown and will stand out in any crowd. The fine lace and sheer dress comes with a couple of different options from long to short with varying degrees of modesty so anyone can enjoy it. If you were looking for the perfect "little black dress"...this is definitely it.

Don't forget Agnes also has this beautiful and feminine gown below in the Platinum Hunt. So while you're over picking up Narcisse be sure to look for that little box as well. You definitely can't go wrong with either of these.

Grab the limo to My Precious.

Platinum Hunt Day 3

I've got two more looks to show you today, each one put together exclusively from hunt pieces. I think that's what I'm enjoying the most. So many great stores with different items to create endless possibilities.

This first one's a bit funky and fun.

FAB.PONY "Splash Luv" Racerback Tank (Teal/Neon Pink)
FAB.PONY "Rebel Rebel" Jeans /skinny (Powder)
CandyDoll - Platinum Doll Skin
MADesigns HAIR ~ XANDER ~ Triple Skunk (Platinum Exclsv)
MADesigns EYES_NATURE ~ Swamp
[ Cynful ] PlatinumHunt - Flats
{what next} Book Stool

ISPACHI Skin - Celeste - Creme/Glitter
SLink Milli Military Coat
*Bliss Couture Hair* Brandy (Marron Glace)

The hunt is running through August 30th so be sure not to miss it!

It starts here.

More from the Platinum Hunt

Below is another look put together from the Platinum Hunt. It's featuring the lavender Enchantress outfit by *Deviance*, which includes the shape and staff you see here...the Platinum Drow Skin by Mynerva...4 skins are in the prize and it also comes with the elf ears and Soulheart Eyes in Ceruleana...and completed with Diamond hair by Magika in Silver. Perfect for any of you roleplayers or those who would just like something different for a change. At 30L for the entire outfit...10L per hunt certainly can't go wrong.

Remember the hunt goes from August 8, 2010 through August 30, 2010 and starts at the ISPACHI main store.

Happy Hunting!

Saturday, August 7, 2010

Platinum Hunt Begins tomorrow!

I had an opportunity to preview some of the great items you'll see during the Platinum Hunt. Beginning August 8th and running through the 30th, this one looks to be very exciting. 100 of SL's best designers have been hand picked to participate and for a mere 10L each you can get some awesome looks. Each of the gifts in this hunt are worth far more than that. You're looking for a little jewelry box with a pearl inside and the hunt items are not so well hidden you'll need an army to find them. The hunt will start at the ISPACHI main store.

Below are a couple of shots I put together from a few of the participating stores:

Skin: Rockberry - Kalista Tan
Hair: Exile - Samara Earth
Necklace: *ICED* Grace
Dress: Adam & Eve - Vanessa short (this comes with 2 lengths)
Shoes: Heart and Sole - Sassy Platinum
Teapot: Baffle! - comes with 7 poses and texture change
Standing Pose: [doll] Celestia 3

More tomorrow...

Mimmi by Bliss Couture and Alienbear's Designs

Whenever I have the privledge of blogging the extraordinary designers that participate in the Clothing Fair every year I jump on the chance and this pairing of creative minds is no exception. Alienbear Gupta of Alienbear's Designs and Amutey Decuir of Bliss Couture worked together on a beautiful pairing of a highly detailed and exquisite gown with the intricate and stunning jewelry set named after Miss Bliss Couture 2010, Mimmi Boa.

Anyone who knows me is aware I love if my name couldn't tell you...and silver is a very close second so this was a perfect ensemble for me. I'm including 1 full length shot of this outfit as well as a couple of close ups so you can see for yourself the fine attention to detail.

This first shot shows the magnificent crown coupled with one of the 4 sets of earrings and 2 necklaces included with the set paired with the finely detailed lace top of the rich purple gown.

The second shot shows the daring plunge of the back of the gown ending with the ruffled bow cradling the rear view of one of the 3 belly chains. This is sure to turn heads at any soiree and perhaps finally catch the eye of that handsome man you've been watching from afar.

And finally these last 2 photos of both ads featuring Mimmi Boa and the many mix and match choices to put this ensemble together in whatever fashion suits your fancy that day.

Hurry down to Alienbear Design's and Bliss Couture and grab these stunning pieces. They're sure to make you feel like a queen.
Now it's time to poke Nev for a date. *grins*

Dedication Walls - 2010 Clothing Fair

Its that time of year that we start to gather our names for the dedication walls. This year we will have a very special area in the Clothing Fair for very special people. All of us participate in Relay for Life for different reasons and its important that we pay some tribute.

This year we are going to be doing something different. We will have three areas to Celebrate those in our lives who have been affected by Cancer. It doesn't matter if its here in Second Life or in your Real Life, We want to Celebrate, Fight Back , and Remember everyone.

We will have three walls, One for Survivors, One for Caregivers and One Memorial Wall.

If you have someone you would like to put on that wall, please drop a note card to Amethyst Starostin.

Note card must include name of the person and what wall (Survivor , Caregiver , or Memorial).

All note cards must be in by March 5th so that we can get the walls ready for the opening of the fair.

Thanks so much,

Nevar and Amethyst

Clothing Fair 2010 --- Coming Soon !!!!

The Clothing Fair committee is proud to announce the dates for Second Life's 4th Annual Clothing Fair benefiting Relay for Life. Events are set to launch on Saturday, March 13th at 3pm slt and run 24/7 through Sunday, March 21, 2010 when the doors must close at 9pm SLT.

The Clothing Fair began as a dream three years ago with 34 stores participating in this event for Relay for Life. Since that date, it has grown to over 150 designers over 9 sims and has raised over 11 million Linden Dollars for RFL.

This year is no different. Prepare to be immersed in 8 of the greatest "Fashion Cities of the World" surrounding a center sim patterned after the UN Sculpture Gardens containing sculptures from some of SL's most talented artists.

We have some of the cream of the crop coming together in the fashion world of Second Life bringing designs from all over the world to this virtual shopping experience. Each of these designers dedicate months of time getting ready for this event. They are all committed to raising as much money for Relay for Life as possible.

This year we are again inviting the Live Musicians and DJ's of Second Life to join us. Covering 24/ 7 through-out the fair, fund raising, and letting us all know just what can be found through-out the 9 sims.

The Clothing Fair 2010 promises to be even better than ever, featuring:

Over 150 Clothing Designers

Live Music and DJ's to keep you entertained while you shop

St. Patrick's Day Party with RL Keltic Music performed by LabGraal

Photo Contest

Fashion Shows

Treasure Hunts

And Much Much More. ....

I have given away enough of their secrets. Once again, entry into the fair is free. As the event draws closer, additional details will be announced on the official website:

Special thanks to the Clothing Fair Committee Members, SL- Newspaper , Royal Elite Magazine and the Builders who gave hours of time to this project: Melody Regent and her team from Regent Estates, Mermaidee Juliesse, Seri Writer , Kim Seifert , Viscount Menatep, Luna Barak, Windyy Lane, Izzie Rexen, Tari Landar, and Grace Louden.

On July 17 and 18 we will walk a track for 24 hours, just like in a real world Relay For Life. Team members build and gather at their team campsites, enjoy live music, participate in fun events, and explore the many Relay sims and the incredible builds by some of Second Life’s top designers, as the event runs overnight and into the next morning.

Last year’s Relay For Life of Second Life attracted more than 120 teams with participants from over 26 countries, held over 300 team fundraising events between March and July, and raised over US$275,000 (that’s REAL US dollars) for cancer research and education.

WOW ! Some amazing builds...

We sure have some amazing builds going on for this years Fair... so I hope you are all getting ready. The New York City Sim is in full swing but they have decided to ask for some more help from the community. SO... Please read the following announcement from Melody Regent.

Regent Estates has been asked to sponsor and build the New York build sim for the 2010 Clothing Fair benefiting Relay for Life.

There will be 9 sims in total, with the theme of " Fashion Cities of the World". It is our job to build, in full, the NYC sim. The Clothing Fair will play host to 130 of the top clothing designers from across Second Life.

There are 8 amazing cities and one United Nations, all coming together for one great cause. New York is one of these important sims and we are honored and thrilled to have been asked to participate in this great project.

The sim will be based on many of the current builds in our New York NYC, which has gained notoriety over the years for its tribute to the World Trade Center Towers and the tragedy of 9/11. Voted best Memorial in Second Life, we are honored to be able to give back to another worthy cause, the Relay for Life.

Included in the sim you will see the Lady herself, The Statue of Liberty, as well as the New York Library. Among other buildings planned are the Empire State Building and the famous Flatiron Building.

You may be asking yourself "why is Melody going into all this?" Well, I will say that our builders were so honored to be asked to be a part of this we couldn’t say no. But that is not the only reason: we decided to come to the community itself, and offer a way for some of you great builders to join in this worthy cause with us.

We are looking for 10 builders to join us in this endeavor. We want to offer a way for you, as a builder, not only to give back, but also to get your work out and seen by THOUSANDS of people over a 10 day period.

If you would like to be a part of this project, please continue for more information on what we need:

• NYC skyscraper style buildings
• Exterior footprint of 25x25M
• Interior space of 15 m deep x 25 m wide x 20m tall
• Minimum height of 70m
• Maximum height of 200m
• 200 prims or less (The fewer the better!!)
• No textures over 512x512 (256x256 is preferred)
• Mega prims are allowed but must be phantom
• Single front entrance
• Only the main floor must be functional – IE, no multiple floors needed
• Nothing scripted
• Completed build in a building rezzor (one can be provided if needed)
• Minimal sculpty use, if at all
• Must provide the finished build copy/mod to Melody Regent and the Relay for Life manager (to be named later)
• Interior must remain flat and neutral in color
• A full permissions copy of your logo or ‘name plate’ to be used for promotional use.

All builds must be turned in no later than January 30th. The sooner we get them, the better. You may replicate a RL building or come up with your own design. You are welcome to turn in as many entries as you wish, we will accept only the best of the designs for the limited space available.

When you turn in the build, please include a folder labeled “NYC Clothing Fair – (your name)”. In the folder we will need a copy/mod version of the building in a building rezzor, a landmark to your store/location (if available), Company logo and a notecard with any information you feel we need or about you and your company.

We will be announcing the names and store locations of all the builders that we use to the forums, in Prim Perfect and to our New York group with over 6000 members. You will also get a sign outside the build that honors you as the contributor.

We also have some ‘filler’ places available that need to be built. These are simple builds that will have nothing inside them. They are merely for looks and there to fill the space between buildings. If you want to contribute to these as well, please contact Melody Regent directly for more information.

We are thrilled to be involved in this worthy cause and to have you join us. If you have any questions at all, please send detailed questions to Melody Regent in world or email to

Thank you again
