Vintage Fair 2012 Preview-oOo Studio & Legal Insanity: Summer Breeze

Creator Olaenka Chesnokov of oOo Studio went above and beyond with her phenomenal “around the world” series of poses for Vintage Fair 2012

which opens August 4th at 4pm SLT!  The poses range from single to couples and all have a destination theme from Argentina to Scotland, the mix of culture and creativity is just astounding.  I had the pleasure of speaking to Olaenka during this preview week and she is even more lovely than her amazing poses, a true pleasure to speak with.  Each pose is fluid and natural, creating a lush harmony no matter the level of your poses needs. From Paris to the beach, oOo Studios creations for vintage fair take you away on a Summer trip sure to please any traveler .

From this set I chose the pose from the many I purchased.  Coupled with this beach themed outfit from Legal Insanity, the sea breeze was callin my name and with the excessive heat we are having in the states, it was a perfect afternoon to dust off the surfboard.  The shirt has a fun graphic on it for Summer and the mesh shorts are roomy and stylish, making a great Summer outfit. Less than 24 hours and counting, Vintage Fair 2012 is almost upon us!

Vintage Fair Preview-evolve & 22769: We Could Be Heroes

Only a couple more days until  Vintage Fair 2012 opens!  BellaStarr Fheng aka Bella of evolve poses has created and exclusive for Vintage Fair that I had a great time using in this photograph.  I love evolve poses, they are versatile, flow beautifully and it’s no surprise as Bella is an amazing photographer.

From the moment I saw Bella’s ad I knew what I wanted to do, the image started forming.  Add this great mesh army shirt from the talented boys at 22769 and that image in my mind came to full light. The end result is not too shabby!

Fighter

If you read my blog or have interacted with me over the past year, you likely are aware that I fight a battle with chronic pain every day.  That battle has been proving more difficult as each day passes.  I am never pain free, haven’t been for over 8 years.  The pain increases often, making it ten times worse than the normal pain I am in all the time.  When those bouts of pain spikes happen, they can last for an hour to weeks.

Right now I am struggling to keep fighting.  Every day I wake up I have to put on my game face, try to manage simple tasks and accept defeat when my pain is too much for me.  I’ve come to look at my pain as my worse enemy, my constant adversary.  This adversary wants to defeat me, and often it does.  It robs me of many of my simple pleasures in life.  I am unable to draw, animate, paint or take photographs in real life.  This is due to the fact my pain doesn’t allow me to move in the same way I used to, and my hands shake horribly to the point I drop things often.

It is a difficult journey for it often feels as if I am fighting against myself.  For how do you fight that which is housed within your own being?  Battling ones self is indescribably heartbreaking and it takes great willpower to keep lifting your head off the battlefield.

Why am I telling you all this?  Because I needed to get it out, I needed to express it in some way.  So I did it visually as best that I could today during a high pain bout.  They are not the best images, but they express what I am feeling.  I am a fighter, and despite the fact my pain often wins, I will never let it completely defeat me.

I Go Crazy

An all time favorite shop of mine, Ronsem, released two new items that I have been wanting to blog.  The polo shirt was the first and I have had it tucked in inventory, trying to find the right pants to wear with it.  I am glad I waited as today Ronsem put out some amazing new baggy jeans.

I wear short pants or ankle length pants more than regular pants.  As you may have already discovered, I absolutely love socks and I like to show them off.  The short pant coupled with my sock collection is a staple in my look here in Second Life and my real life.  So if you ever wonder what I wear while blogging, you can guarantee I have some kind of silly socks on, but likely nothing else!
