Flashmans Redux

A while back I blogged about Flashmans, that venerable (if seedy) old gathering hole. Sadly, the old girl (in the words of its now retired proprietor Martin Ren) closed her doors on December 11th, 2009, as Martin hung up his hat. (Above, I'm catching a last dance with the also venerable (if seedy) Boughan Humphreys.) Some of us knew that Martin was building a new Flashmans, though, and she opened her doors the following day, now under the gentle care of Miss Echo Underwood and Miss Phideaux Mayo in the sim Esoterica. More photos are on my flickr stream--and one below here from the new establishment.

My dress in the top photo is new from Babele Fashion, the Tight Wool Blue Xcite! compatible, and in the bottom pic the even newer Wool and Lace Dark Xcite! compatible.

Dreaming Night in HPMD

The lovely sim known as Happy Mood, owned by yuyu Flores, really deserves its own blog entry ... a delightful place of curios and things to make you smile. But additionally from December 1st through 31st, HPMD is home to a beautiful creation called Dreaming Night by Coyura Cazalet, Ino Jie and Sasaya Kayo. As you arrive at Dreaming Night you have a choice of entering three interconnected spherical worlds--Secret Party, Yule Log and Goofy Santa, each of which presents its own delights. (Above, I'm being flown about in wandering fashion in Goofy Santa, closely monitored by a team of pigs perched on a giant Santa (click to zoom in).)

The dress in the photo is new from Babele Fashion, the Uncinetto Red, a perfect outfit for the holidays!

Savant City

Long ago, my friend LisaKathleen Kaigawa (before she became LisaKathleen Kaligawa!) began to exhibit some of her real life artwork in Second Life. The earliest exhibition of The Savants I can remember was at Lauk's Nest, but maybe there were others. For Burning Life she brought them out of hibernation, now in much more colorful and dazzling form, and happily they've found a home "courtesy of patroness-of-the-arts Charlotte Warwillow" at Savant City. Lots of full perm freebies here for the taking, and some fun and thoughtful artwork too!
