Earlier this week Draxtor Despres asked me to come by the Mayfair sim and take a picture of him in front of the Mon Tissu store. When I landed there I was surprised to see him dressed up as a bloom doll, lol! I usually see him looking like this, with his braids and cool glasses. I thought it was adorable that he still had his infamous cartoon pants on though! Anyhow I digress, at the shoot I found out that for his next episode, he was featuring Elie Spot of Mon Tissu. I loved this episode as it really shows a healthy mixture of sl and rl. Elie is beautiful and talented in both worlds.
Here’s a link to it on youtube so you can watch it in full HD: http://youtu.be/Y89KjbBwMBA
Inara Pey always does a little interview with Drax for every episode. I love these posts as it gives a bit of a behind-the-scenes glimpse to the episode and adds more to the story. You can check out the latest post here: The Drax Files 9: Fashioning your world
While I was shooting, we were on skype together and he showed me some clips of the upcoming episode. When I heard Elie say Mon Tissu I was like, “OMG THIS WHOLE TIME I HAVE BEEN SAYING TISSUE!” Of course Drax started laughing at me wondering WHY would I be saying “tissue” all this time. I don’t know why I assumed that but recently I did a video tutorial where I said “slink” and someone left a comment saying they always called it s-link. Sometimes I just don’t know how to pronounce certain store names, and sometimes when I think I DO know how to pronounce them, turns out I was pronouncing them wrong the whole time!!!
I recently had a discussion about this on plurk. I never knew how to pronounce Trompe Loeil either. Are there any store names that you guys have a hard time pronouncing?
