Weddings Around the World

Fusion Magazine - Weddings Around the World!

Libby Farleigh, the publisher of Fusion Magazine recently contacted me and requested I do two images for her special Wedding issue. They have a segment on weddings around the world so she asked me to share some colorful imagery depicting indian wedding traditions.

Fusion Magazine - Weddings Around the World!

Indian weddings are usually a big celebration of two families coming together, not just the bride and groom. They last several days with a lot of singing and dancing. The bride and groom are usually in rich, colorful clothing and adorned with a lot of gold and jewels. So this is my interpretation of that in Second Life.

You can check out the whole beautiful wedding issue of Fusion magazine on issuu.com. The weddings around the world segment starts on page 52. Thank you Libby for inviting me to be a part of it! <3

Now, I wanted to share a video with you to show you a glimpse of indian wedding fashions in the real world. In November of 2013 Vogue India, one of my favorite real world fashion magazines, did a feature on weddings as well and shared some of my most favorite pictures to date. You can find some of the images from that feature on The Fashion Gone Rogue blog. Here is a video of those images from Vogue India:

Finally, I was still in my clothing from this series when Autumn Ashdene messaged me requesting to take an image. I thought it was so lovely, I wanted to share. Thank you for the lovely picture, Autumn! <3

Sparkle and Shine

Photos Nikolaidis released this really fun dress today and I wanted to dress it all up with tattoos and my new hair from Red Mint that I picked up at Hair Fair. I actually poked Mr. Jefferson to give me names of new tattoo places and he dropped a bunch of landmarks on me. Letis […] Continue reading →

Immaculate

Immaculate is the exact word I would use to describe some of the hair that is available at Hair Fair this year. I’ve already spent a small fortune there and plan to head back in a week or so and spend a bit more. Hair Fair opens tonight (Saturday the 12th) at midnight, hope you […] Continue reading →

A Journey Through India

For the summer issue of TREMPE mode magazine, I was asked to take you all on a journey through India. I tried to use mostly mesh items in this editorial, however there are still a few favorites from the pre-mesh era that I felt compelled to include. The build I’ve used in all of the […] Continue reading →

I just did this pic for fun because Damien Fate has updated his FATEeyes and they now have a very cool tear animation, which you can see […] Continue reading →

Happy 6th Anniversary Tempura!

The Tempura Island family is celebrating 6 years in Second Life on May 25th. They first opened their doors in 2008 and I have pictures of myself at Tempura dating back to August of 2008. I spent many days and nights there just dancing, talking, kissing, and falling in love. I always found it to […] Continue reading →

It’s optional though, you can just answer the questions on your own if that’s easier. Meme instructions: Grab a friend […] Continue reading →

Pink

I love the way both Elisa and Grazia have shown off some of the skins that will be available at the fair. It’s amazing how different a skin can make you look, even on the same […] Continue reading →

International Women’s Day

Today was International Women’s Day. Every year on March 8th women (and men) celebrate women’s economic, political, and social achievements and encourage respect, appreciation and love towards women worldwide. This day is about empowering and celebrating women. Days like these always make me wonder and I start all these comparisons between myself and women that […] Continue reading →

Life Changes

“Just when I think I have learned the way to live, life changes.” Do you ever feel like you finally have a handle on life and then it goes and takes a new route and you feel completely lost again? I’m having that kind of a week. It’s been a good week though, I hope […] Continue reading →
