There’s a lot of copyright infringement in SL, theft of the arts is nothing new online — those of us who make a living in the arts get rather accustomed to seeing our work used with no credit given, no permission for such use requested, and no monetary payments given.
LL does not have the manpower to police SL. They can hardly keep up with all the copy-botting taking place within SL, much less the copyright infringement of artwork stolen from the internet at large.
I stopped into a furniture shop I saw blogged in another blog. I’m not saying the name of the blog since I respect this blogger, and it’s really not her fault the shop had pirated art in the shop she had blogged, she probably didn’t even recognised the artwork as stolen. The blogger had blogged some dollarbie items, and they were really nice. Well, when I stopped in and looked around I saw a lot of artwork from an assortment of very well known fantasy artists adorning the walls.. and all for sale. None of the correct titles were used, and the artists were not credited.. so I doubt the shopowner was selling these pieces with the knowledge and blessings of the artists.
My personal policy is this: If you utilise stolen artwork in your shop, I will not blog your shop.
There is the coolest RL/SL project you can participate in: The Traveling Prim Project.
Linkage below.. have fun!
Lemania Indigo is a Second Life designer who showers her group members (and the rest of us too!) with gifts. Her designs are usually elegant, and reminiscent of designs from the 1940′s and 50′s.
She has been retiring some of her older designs, and today the retiring design is a tribute to a one of a kind woman — someone who was decades before her time: Eartha Kitt. Eartha Kitt was a ground breaker as a singer and as an actress, she was the original bad girl. She was so wonderfully bad that even Batman couldn’t resist her Catwoman, one of her most famous television roles. Her throaty purr was legendary.
Today’s retiring design is a two-fer: a leopard print dress (especially fitting to celebrate this unique diva), and a beautiful black skin. This dress went out today (April 7th) at 9 am and will be gone 24 hours from now, at 9:00 tomorrow morning SL time.

Oh.. and did I mention that it’s only 1L$?
Shown above: Pink Savoir Pirate (2L$) set with three shirt options from the ~Tea Lane~ kiosk on the Caspian Sea sim. Proceeds go to Relay for Life.
It’s that time of year again: Time for the Relay for Life Clothing fair.
Second Life is an amazing vehicle for solutions to real world issues. Everyone is touched by cancer in some way, and the annual Clothing Fair provides an opportunity for the best clothing designers in Second Life to strut their virtual stuff while contributing to a very worthy cause. Every designer donates at least a portion of their Relay for Life sales to cancer research with many donating the full amount of their sales.
I had the privilege of attending a blogger’s preview of the Clothing Fair, and I’ve included some pictures from the event. This event is 9 sims big! These pictures don’t even come close to showing all the amazing, one of a kind fashions waiting for you.
You can read more about the Relay for Life Clothing fair by following the links below:

Ok, normally I don’t do this.. but there are so many idiots in Second life using the -=Bloodlines=- vampire fangs to ‘recruit’ noobs into their ranks that they have finally earned a special place on my blog.
These people ride the short bus of vampires, they are the skanky rotting corpses amongst the undead, the would-be social climbers who don’t give a shit about the quality of their ranks.
For those people who don’t know about the -=Boodlines=- fangs, the way it works is (basically) this:
- Person with fangs ‘bites’ you. You get a pop up in world saying that so-and-so wants to bite you, and asking if you accept.
- You accept.
- Your avie gets a set of ‘bite marks’, and his/her name is registered on the -=Bloodlines=- website.
If you don’t want to roleplay under the -=Bloodlines=- game system.. it’s no big deal. However.. if at sometime in the future you wish to play, you can’t choose your own bloodline because you are already registered as belonging to a bloodline.
Sort of sucks, huh?
Now let me clarify something here: I don’t think the -=Bloodlines=- products are bad products.. just the opposite. I’ve been a gamer too, any product that help keep the game honest is a good thing. With that said though, the -=Bloodlines=- line of products does have a huge hole that permits abuse and rank leveling that is fully unrelated to the game itself.
To their credit, -=Bloodline=- has addressed this issue by creating and releasing a free, transferable garlic necklace to ward off -=Bloodlines=- vampires. You can read more about it on their blog. Please be aware that this product is not effective against non-=Bloodlines=- products.. and -=Bloodlines=- does get a bad rap from some of these look alike products.
Now.. on to the idiots.
If you are on my Idiots list it’s because you tried to ‘animate’ my avatar using a -=Bloodlines=- product with out asking me first or engaging me in the appropriate role play that would have led to my avatar being ‘bitten’. Congratulations on being a complete idiot who doesn’t understand the limits of simple role play, or the rules associated with the product you are using.

The Twisted Hunt started on 01 March, and runs through the end of the month. If you love alternative clothes, this is absolutely the hunt for you!
Please note that if you want to pick up ALL the great gifts. you need to start at the beginning. There is a Twisted Hunt group in world to help you along your way, I recommend joining it for the duration of the hunt.
Official starting point: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Lasombra/73/190/50
There are some great shops participating, and this is not the kind of stuff that will end up in your garbage bin — I can hear my inventory screaming in pain already! I’ve picked up the gifts in some of these shops already.. and these are some very cool gifts.
I’m gonna sticky this to the top while the hunt is in progress, and update as I pick stuff up.

I had the rare privilege of seeing a new Rezzable sim during a blogger’s only fashion event: Digital Alchemy – Fashion Inspired by Ancient Egypt.
Now, I have to admit a deep, dark secret here: In real life, I’m not a fashionista. Because of my work (I paint draw, and otherwise create objects d’art in a studio in back of my house), I can usually be found in my ‘uniform’, which consists of olive green cargo pants, a black tank top, with my hair pinned up on top of my head with a pencil. It’s easy, it’s functional, I only ruin one set of clothes with paint spatters, and it’s wonderfully easy on the wallet.
But I do enjoy the avant-garde in art, and that includes fashion. Second life has been a wonderful venue to view fashions that are simply not possible in real life.
Although the Fashion Inspired by Ancient Egypt show didn’t quite reach the level of avant-garde, there were some nicely done fashions that I would certainly wear in my Second Life travels.
The show was wonderfully orchestrated, and the lag was low due to the guest list being limited in number. This was easily one of the best fashion shows I’ve attended in Second Life.
These beautiful Egyptian themed ensembles included designs by:
- Avagardner Kungler
- Callie Cline – Callie Cline
- Candy Cerveau – Eye Candy
- Caroline Apollo – Caroline’s Jewelry
- Cherelle Capra – C&D Designs
- Digit Darkes and Diversity Hair
- Draconic Lioncourt – Draconic Kiss
- Ghanima Uriza – Blue Blood
- Hart Larsson – PXL
- Helena Stringer – The Stringer Mausoleum
- Ivey Deschanel – Snatch
- Kakaue Yoshikawa – Kakaue shoes
- Kalli Heart- The Lair
- Kavar Cleanslate – Exile hair
- Kira Paderborn – Corrupted Innocence
- Kuja Akina – The Obscene Skins
- Layja Vidor- Exxess
- Machang Pichot – Aoharu
- Missallsunday lemon – wasabi pills
- Nicky Ree – Designing Nicky Ree
- Shai Delacroix – Casa del Shai
- Sofia London – Lurvebite
- SySy Chapman – SySy
- Tabitha Ninetails- Laughing Academy
- Violet Morellet – Inorite
- Vooner Voom – Vooner
I’ve shown only a very small fraction of the fashions here. To see the full collection, go to King’s Rezzable.. you won’t be disappointed. There will be another one for the public, at 2 pm SLT. Definitely get over and check it out when you can. Then after the show, hop in a chariot, explore the sim, and prepare yourself to be completely blown away by all the beautiful things there are to see.
