For Original Vogue Event I created a new dress and matching platform sandals.
Lilly Dress, a sexy short balloon dress is made from old jeans and reused sheer chiffon. It is the first piece of a series of recycling fashion, because we buy far too much new cheap clothing and do not realize, what this means to the environment.
I want to help to cultivate the awareness of sustainable fashion – refashion.
There are 2 versions: one with blue jeans and one with black denim.
Both are available single and as fatpacks with 6 styles each and the Smart Hud.
The matching platform sandals are covered with reused recolored jeans fabric coming in 9 colors with the Smart Hud.
All items are released only at the Original Vogue Event which starts tomorrow until 15th April.
More infos about the event here:
Have a great Sunday!
There are fatpacks available now from my best selling items.
You can recognize them easily with the smart hud display. The easy color changer hud saves you a lot of inventory items if you like more than 2 or 3 colors of a product.
I learned to love the color changer huds for all kind of attachments.
And I do them on request, if you ask for a special product, that is sold in a single color yet. Just contact me.
May I introduce Sputnik, our friendly store drone, who is greeting everybody personally by flying in front, but keeping a safe distance.
I hate those boring blue menus popup with every doorstep I cross. So I thought let’s try something new and Muad had fun to install our drone.
I colored it in friendly turquoise and magenta tones and I hope you will like that way of being welcomed.
Freda & Sputnik
Skin Fair is one of the biggest annual events in SL and almost everybody is very excited about it. I wanted to use this chance to find a mesh head at last!
You can find many informations about the skin fair and a link to a great movie by Strawberry Singh here:
The fair with around 200 participants is placed on 2 sims and visitors avatar complexity is limited to 50.000, a good step to a halfway good user experience.
So first I put on what I absolutely needed: my mesh body and hair.
My “Freda” Mia dress and a pair of high heels added up to 44.000. Perfect!
It took me about 3 hours to look at every booth that caught my eye.
I got tons of Demos of all big and small brands mesh heads with matching skins and shapes.
It took me another 3 hours to unpack and to try all those demos.
I was really willing to get a mesh head at last, so I did this with patience (not my thing usually) and care. I edited my shape and I tried everything, tested huds, turned sliders…
I looked into many strange faces, that were so far away from myself like Mars and just not me. It was frustrating and I better do not show any pictures of this process.
I remember I had the same problem 11 years ago, when I searched for a new skin.
Then there was the moment when I discovered Pulse skins. I looked at the vendor pic and I looked into a familiar face.
I still wear my Pulse Skin “Elegance” and even if many make ups are outdated I still feel very well with the nude lipstick and dark eye shadow.
Here comes a late “thank you” to Lorac Farella who sadly left SL (said so in her last blog post) in 2016. Who knows maybe one day she comes back like I did it…
Maybe one day it will be possible to bake my face on a mesh head matching my shape.
So no mesh head at this time. And nobody can say I did not try it. I did!!!
Love from good old Freda system face.
Have fun with my umbrella collection.
For the full choice come to my inworld store to see them rezzed:
Or have a look at my SL Marketplace page:
Umbrellas at the “Freda” store
Every umbrella comes in a wet and in a dry version with Bento hand poses for L and R hand, holding straight or low.
Enjoy your Sunday,
Just for the fun I have made a series of umbrellas.
I just couldn’t stop myself to make them and the more I made the more ideas were coming my way…
So I did not make it to go photo shooting a lot this week. Just one shot in our own beautiful garden in front of the store, which became a real recreation area within the past two weeks. Another good reason to get over to “Fredas”.
Have a great start into the weekend with hopefully better weather for you than here with us.
Garden: Apple Orchard by “TMG Two Moon Gardens”
Clothing incl. raincoat: “Fredas”
Umbrella: “Fredas” Ella Umbrella “Modern City”
Necklace: Bang Bang Choker by “Yummy”
Its getting better with my coolness 🙂
Have a great start into the week!
When we saw the solar house from our neighbor Patrick first time Muad thought ” cool!” and I thought “strange!”. But we are in SL where you find almost everything.
After a nice talk we learned there is a sustainable community in SL, Etopia, a group of people who educate in renewable energy with RL examples.
It is about making people aware of the necessity of a sustainable environment and this is what I find cool, too!
So Muad put on his overalls and installed solar panels on my shop roof.
Now I feel much better heating that old leaky steampunk home and using all those lights being on 24/7 in the shop :-).
We are having solar panels and an electric car in our RL, too, btw.
Have a great Sunday!
We already had some beautiful warm days which inspired me to do this soft falling casual dress in 3 summerly versions: with fishes, with flowers and indigo tie dyed.
Available on the SL-Marketplace:
My first hunt since I reopened the shop “Freda”.
Get all the stops from here:
get over here to get your “Freda”-hunt gift, a lovely spring dress with beautiful boots.
