The Miamai Blogger Scavenger Hunt

Hello lovelies! How excited are all of you for the new spring line from Miamai? We certainly are excited to bring it to you! Monica and Pill have both put a lot of effort into this line and we know all of you are going to enjoy it greatly.

If you haven’t heard about Miamai‘s scavenger hunt you can find all the details by following this link! You could be one of three lucky people to win the entire Luxe collection, including all the shoes!

Inspiration comes in many shapes and sizes. Sometimes when looking at clothing in Second Life it’s quite obvious where the content creator has drawn their inspiration from, others not so much. With this collection the inspiration came from many places however the very first piece that was released as a preview actually came  as inspiration to Monica Outlander not through fashion but through her art. Vali Myers was a talented artist in so many ways. If you’ve never heard of her I highly suggest you take a few moments to research the sultry siren.

Best of luck to those on the hunt and I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on Saturday as I can! I’ll be MCing with Sofia Diage at the release party. If any of you remember our shenanigans from the Miss Virtual World pageant in December I am certain you can imagine just how much fun it’s going to be without us being censored! Woo!

The Futurewave

There are so many events going on right now there are far too many for me to keep up with. I’d love to be able to have the time to blog all of them but sadly I do not. I am a sucker however for Monica Outlander’s face tattoos so when she popped a few out for the Futurewave event I had to force myself to take a few minutes (okay hours) to shoot and edit a picture for it. These are actually two of her tattoos layered. All three of the tattoos she made for the event are tintable so you can make them whatever color you wish which turns out to be pretty handy.

FacepaintThe new ISON necklace at the new round of Collabor88 has been taunting me since opening day. It took me four different teleports with three different logins to purchase this darned thing.. but I finally got it. There is nothing worse than going negative linden every single time you try to purchase something. The same thing kept happening to me at Fameshed when I was trying to purchase these earrings from Cae. Anyone know why that is happening to me?

I’ve been pretty sick the past few weeks, that coupled with my time constraints has gotten me seriously backed up with blogging. In fact, I don’t know if I am going to actually catch up. I am finally starting to feel better though so hopefully I can catch up with everything before editing week for Love To Decorate!

Nana from Miamai

Don’t shoot me.. I don’t have a creative ounce of energy in me after such a long work week and a very busy weekend! These are basically raw snaps but I wanted to make sure I got the word out about the newest group gift from Miamai! Say hello to Nana, in a special color reserved for group members only.

GroupgiftNana is for sale in several different colors but this deep purple will only be for Miamai’s group members. There is no cost to join the group and Monica is famous for throwing pretty things at her loyal and loving minions.. I mean.. members. It’s worth the group slot, plus you get me throwing glitter at you randomly. Totally worth the group slot!

Groupgift1I squeaked out loud when I saw these bows in the back! Super cute! Perv my in world profile for the group clickage to get yours quick fast and in a hurry!

Groupgift2Oh, remember Ria from my last post? I still can’t take off this skin. I hate that it’s so much lighter than my normal tone so I’m gonna need someone to figure out who Shyla’s people are. I don’t have people but I am willing to hire people to talk to her people so a mocha tone will be forth coming!  Oh, jewelry.. Maxi Gossamer stole my monies again. *sobs*

New from Miamai, Exile & LeLutka

I am totally behind on my blogging. I’ve been so busy with work both First Life and Second Life that I have hardly had time to sleep much less style and shoot pictures! Fortunately for me I was able to finally shoot these fabulous headdresses that were created by Monica Outlander as part of this years BlackLabel Collection today.

First up is Sian. One word comes to mind when I look at this headdress: Carnival! It’s only about six weeks away and you can bet I am going to be looking around the grid for the perfect items to pair with this piece for the festivities. If you didn’t know a lot of the Brazilian sims in Second Life celebrate and have their own carnivals. They are SO much fun so I highly suggest you visiting if you’re able to do so around that time. A lot of folks have issues finding hair to go under hats and items such as this one so allow me to introduce you to Travail, one of three new releases at LeLutka. Perfect  for situations like these with minimal effort needed.

This is the Tatania who should actually be worn on your head and this is actually the back of the headdress but I like it so much I wanted to hold it! Tatania also has a sexy jump suit to match but I had a strange urge to remain naked so you’ll just have to suffer. Although being nearly naked in both this image and the image above allowed me to show off another new release from Miamai’s BlackLabel Collection called Ordoroe. This tattoo comes in three different colors, white and blue which are both shown and then black. The Tatania headdress comes in three different colors, white which is shown here and then pink and black.

If you haven’t been to this round of Fameshed you need to do so as quickly as possible. These new eyes by IKON are seriously the greatest thing since sliced bread. They come in a bazillion colors and are super easy to size with the HUD. Also, Exile released new hair and I am totally in love with this one called Party Girl. Just so you know, I will not be judged if you see me three weeks from now still wearing this hair. It’s that awesome!

I hope all of you had a wonderful and safe holiday!

New from Miamai!

As most are aware I was one of two hosts for Miss Virtual World 2014  that was held on December 14th. I was actually pretty terrified about doing it. I’ve been a guest on many live shows and I’ve worked countless numbers of live shows both as a model and production/backstage crew. However, I’ve never actually hosted and certainly never had to be live and on air for seven straight hours!

Miss Virtual World is a grueling competition that lasts for months. In 2010 I was Miss Virtual World Brazil, so I knew what these girls were going through. There were many times when my co-host, the lovely Sofia Diage had to swoop in and save me. I am glad she knew me well enough to be able to tell when a subject was starting to choke me up. I am a very emotional person by nature and being a Miss was something that I took very seriously, still do in fact. I think I only cried on air twice in the seven hours and I didn’t say a single bad word despite the many times I was baited to do so.

When I learned that I was going to be hosting I knew I had to be fabulous. I retired from the fashion world two years ago next month but there was NO way I was going to be anything less than fabulous. So, I went running to Monica Outlander of Miamai. You see, Monica does absolutely fabulous things with mesh and I knew that she would be able to deliver on what my minds eye had envisioned. She went above and beyond my expectations and even surprised me by adding my gown to her coveted BlackLabel collection.

MiaMai_BL_ShaeYou see, each year Monica releases a special collection under the title “BlackLabel.” It is a highly anticipated release that you never quite know what it will entail. The release shows have been some of the best shows on the grid. It’s just an event/collection that you don’t want to miss ever. One of her BlackLabel gowns was even named as one of Second Life’s Twenty  most beautiful gowns by The Best of Second Life Magazine in 2011. So when she told me that she was going to be adding my gown to the esteemed collection I nearly fainted!

MiaMai_BL_Shae_Back There are so many details in this gown, layers upon layers.. pearls, flowers.. multiple fabrics in lavender some patterned and others sheer and silky. There are also many details in indigo that are seen in the flowers. It also is materials ready! I spent hours moving my camera around myself watching the sheer bits sway from lavender to indigo.. it’s truly a work of art and I was extremely proud to represent the brand of Miamai on the stage. Thank you Monica for saving my tush!

MiaMai_BL_Shae_DetailsWhen it came to accessorizing the gown I knew that I had to wear my Miss Virtual World finalist headband that can be seen in the second image. I haven’t had many opportunities to wear it since it was gifted to me so I knew I had to incorporate it somehow. Turns out, it fit very nicely around the D!va Hair I chose to wear with the gown.. which was another no brainer for me. I love the whimsical feeling of D!va Hair. But when it came to the necklace, well the necklace was a completely different story.

You see, in Second Life it’s quite common to go over board with life in general. Jewelry is normally extremely lavish and over the top which was not at all right for this gown. With all the action going on I knew I needed something elegant and dainty. Insert Caelan Hancroft designer of Cae here. I discovered Cae a few months ago and have been a fan since. Simple elegance is what I needed and when she saw my dress and handed me the diamond solitaire necklace she delivered! It was exactly what I needed to complete my fabulosity! Thank you Caelan for coming to my rescue so quickly. I owe you!

I’ve been getting a TON of IMs in world about my dress asking when it will be for sale so.. I’m happy to say you can go buy it now!! You’ll find it in the “BlackLabel” section at the main Miamai store. I certainly hope you feel like a princess when you put it on, I know I do… I may or may not still be running around Second Life in it… *blinks*
