Shades of White


I like this look coz although the dress is rather innocent, classy and brave, when combined with the tough boots/socks and the hat/hair it gets a totally different look and feel. Yeah, this is my style.

Wearing:
  • Zenith-strappy dress with belt (milk) for Maitreya mesh body Lara from Uber 
  • MINA hair Ashley (including the bowler hat). The hat comes in 4 colors to be changed by a HUD. This gacha hair/hat is a collaboration between !Aphorism! and MINA hair for The Epiphany. The Epiphany gacha event starts on April 12 at midnite SLT. For info on how Epiphany works please look here - http://the-epiphany.com/how-to-play/
    Here's your taxi to Ephiphany
    Next to the Aphorism - MINA hair Ashley there's the Kate hair, which also comes with a hat. There are HUD's for a bowler hat and for a floppy hat.
    So lots of choices :-)

Moreover wearing:
Tamdig henna Dido tattoo for Maitreya body
Maitreya mesh body Lara
Maitreya Stagioni Xtd Suede Sahara for Lara feet  
Maitreya Dahlia socks white for Lara flat feet

That's it. The weekend is over and I poof. Nite nite

New Exhibition 'The Wall' by GoodCross @ Nitroglobus Hall


'The Wall', the April 2016 exhibition @ Nitroglobus Hall

What can a person do with a wall? Well a lot it seems when you look around in Nitroglobus Hall: one can stand on top of a wall, under a wall, besides a wall... 

But that's not what this exhibition by GoodCross is really about. It's about emotions. Each image shown reflects an emotion.
Come and see for yourself.

Opening Party: Sunday 3 April 2016
Time: 12.30 pm SLT = 21.30 hrs Amsterdam time
Music by DJ Ferdy
Place: Nitroglobus Hall

This project is GoodCross documenting the emotional walls that we all build in, and around us, especially true in case of our lives in Second Life. 
In the infogiver at the entrance point of the gallery you'll find, next to the Bio of GoodCross, also a list of all his works exhibited with an accompanying song (youtube url included).. Great to take a tour and stroll along the images and listen to the music the artist picked to fit the image.  

GoodCross came into Second Life on 8/31/2011,  the bug of photography in SL soon caught up on him, and he has just been absorbed with it and all skills around it. He spends almost all his time in second life, creating and documenting little stories to fit inside the 4 sides of a frame. 

GoodCross is the owner, curator of The Good Days Gallery
More of his work you'll find on his Flickr page: https://www.flickr.com/photos/goodcross

Live music in the Cafe of Nitroglobus Hall


My dear friend and landlord Joa and I we love art AND music. And music is what it's about in this blog post. 
About a week ago Joa arranged for Portuguese fado singer Zoree Jupiter (Treza Bettencourt) to perform in the cafe of my gallery (Nitroglobus Hall). An enormous success, soo many came to listen to Zoree's moving songs. 

Last Sunday Joa tped me over to Cool Cat's Music Circus, where singer songwriter, guitarist Mark Allan Jensen was performing. Wow, we both loved it and I asked Mark if he was willing to perform at my Cafe. He said yes after I showed him and his lovely wife Wendy my gallery and the cafe. 
So it was decided Mark would perform Wednesday, 23 March at 1.30 pm SLT.

Yesterday evening (23 March) again we had full house. Mark played a lot of his originals, which I love so much. Please take some time to listen to his songs: here's the url to his website
No doubt Mark will return to the cafe soon to perform again. We all couldn't get enough of his music. 

I received a lot of IM's of people telling me they love these music events and appreciate me organizing. Well Joa and I we love it too. I appointed Joa as my music scout. Curious who will be the next he spots, and who's willing to perform at the cafe :-)

For those interested: I announce the music events upfront in Facebook Events, on my Dido Petra Haas Facebook page, on my Dido Haas FlickR and I send information to my Nitroglobus Gallery SL group (when you like to join this group please IM me and I will add you).

LEA dress by Easterling at The Trace



Exploring The Trace, an awesome sim with great beaches

I am wearing the awesome Easterling dress Lea for Maitreya mesh body Lara, The dress comes with a HUD with MANY MANY different gorgeous textures. SUPERB with a super fit (the folder gives you 2 Maitreaya sizes; i.e. one normal and one wider back), and as always very smexy.  

In short a great great dress and a must have. Go get it at Easterling. Here's your taxi to the shop.
Furthermore I am wearing my fav Maitreya Mocassin boots and the BDR (Beautiful Dirty Rich) Reckless Collar, which is part of the total Reckless outfit.  And ... of course the Dido tattoo made by my friend Tamdig. See my former blog post.
Last but not least MINA hair Stella. Love it

Oh and don't forget and explore the awesome sim The Trace. You'll love it, and I'm sure you will not be able to stop making images over there.

Tattoo by Tamdig

 

Tattoo by Tamdig
                            
My friend Tamdig started making tattoos for mesh bodies, among them Maitreya Lara. And guess what his first tattoo is called Dido. I am honored.
I tested for him and made the images. The Dido tattoo comes in henna (Traditional) as well as in black. It has a HUD that lets you choose the intensity of the tattoo as well as upper, lower part, AND yes yes....  the hands too (so cool) 

Dido tattoo is available at the moment for classic, Maitreya and Belleza mesh bodies on marketplace.  

Moreover, when you like to have a custom tattoo, that's possible: contact Tamdig inworld.

Here's where you can find Tattoo for Tamdig on SL Marketplace
