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

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 →

Happy Ramadan!

(raw shot) It’s that time of the year again where I get cranky and moody while I fast with my loved ones during the daylight hours. Today was the 1st day of the Islamic month of Ramadan and visions of double chocolate cupcakes have been dancing through my head. Although I do have a tough […] 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 My 7th Rezday!

May 9th is my 7th Rezday. 7 years ago today I stumbled upon the virtual world of Second Life, created an account and logged in. I was lost and didn’t quite understand what I was doing so I logged out and didn’t think about it again until a week later. I’m glad I returned and […] Continue reading →

The Break-Up!

After a long, hard day at work, I came home today to find a woman standing in my kitchen. As I got closer I realized that the woman was none other than my fake husband! So not only have I had to put up with his constant cheating (reference) now he’s cross-dressing. I wouldn’t even […] Continue reading →

I Got Partnered!

So there I was just a few days ago, minding my own business and reading what the plurkers were up to on my timeline. When I noticed the biggest bratty troll on plurk, Mr. Ewan Mureaux (whom you can never really take seriously) had put up an application because he was looking for slove. Of […] Continue reading →

A while back Shug Maitland contacted me with a suggestion for a meme. Her suggestion was, “What is your Window On The World” where she requested that everyone show a screenshot of their viewer setup, the way they normally see SL, including the Huds, Floaters, Button layout, etc. I didn’t really know how to do […] Continue reading →
