RFL Halfway There Fair

I’m posting this for my friend Wilma because she’s awesome, and wants your support during the RFL Halfway There Fair this Sunday (tomorrow).

— cut & pasted from Wilma —

This Sunday, June 1st the Relay for Life of Second Life will be holding its Halfway There Fair. During this fun event, my team, The Relay Rockers will be raising funds as part of this effort.

One of our main fund raisers is “Bid Me Bald”. Volunteers agree to shed their hair for $L5000 a day donation for RFL.

On Sunday from 6 am – 10 am SLT A Relay for Life Kiosk (benefiting American Cancer Society) will be set up just for me and my hair! At the end of the day, the total raised will cut off my hair, for L$5,000 per day. If L$10,000 is raised, I gotta go bald for 2 days. If L$35,000 is raised, I’m bald for a week. If I’m caught wearing my hair during the time I’ve been bid bald, I will have to match the total donation!

I’m a bit of a shopaholic and I’ve more than contributed my part to the SL economy…so it’s your turn to give back!! I’m more than willing to go bald for any amount of time…if I collect L$70,000 …I’m not above being bald for 2 weeks in SL. I figure that I’m already bald in RL…may as well go for it in my Second Life too.

The Relay Rockers do this every Sunday from 5-7 at T1 Radio. Please come take part! http://relayrockers.t1radio.com

I’m a bit of a private person but I will tell you a bit about my reasoning for being so vocal about this project. I’m a cancer survivor! I was first diagnosed with breast cancer in August of 2004. I went thru chemo and radiation…thinking it was all over and done with. But, this wasn’t to be. I was diagnosed a second time in July of 2007. I finished my chemo in late March. I’m finishing up with my radiation now and I fully intend on being around to spoil my grandbabies SOMEDAY. My son is 21 and a senior in college. I will be here to see those grandkids. I know that. I feel it in my heart.

I think it is amazing at what we can do when we pull together and work towards the goal. SL RFL last year was one of the most touching things I’ve ever experienced. I’ve been involved with RFL for many years and I was just as touched at the Survivors Lap in SL as I was my first survivors lap in so called real world. I sat in front of my computer on a beautiful summer day…I sat there all day…couldn’t tear myself away from the computer screen. Everyone came together for the same cause. This is a beautiful thing!

Cancer is a horrible disease but it doesn’t have to be a death sentence. Don’t look at me like I’m sick or a patient..just look at me. ..I’m a mom..I’m a daughter..a sister …a wife…a friend..I am you. Cancer can happen to anyone. Let’s just find a cure.
Please join me at the Fair and be generous. Help us Remember, Celebrate and Fight Back against Cancer!

Until there’s a Cure,

Wilma Delgado

Republik

I’m on a roll… more fab menswear that looks great on us girlies too!

On the same sim as bitterCandy, there is a shop called Republik. Right now there’s only a small collection of menswear, but again, all the items at this shop are transfer!!! Gift.GIVING.GALORE!

Most items are scripted to change colors via a menu on touch, which is like getting a dozen different items in one that is sure to match many existing items in your wardrobe.

[Republik – Sport Jacket (with sculpted collar) | Elephant Outfitters – Jordyn Shorts (White) | Republik – Letterman bag (color changeable via menu) | AOHARU – Lily hair]

[Republik – Grunge Shoe (color + texture changeable via menu) | Republik – Fight Club Glass (color changeable via menu) | PixelDolls – Antihero Bikini | Tukinowaguma – meguGold hair]

[Republik – FREEEBIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! T-Shirt (White)]

*EDIT**** The ciggie is from FNKY Cake, Funk Schnook makes my fav ciggie in all of SL. I’m putting this in so Funk cannot say I NEVER credit his awesometastic ciggies anymore.

Even though Republik’s collection is geared towards men, I think the Grunge Shoe is really cute (esp. because it has pink stars texture!!!) and <3 the Sports Jacket.

Tp to Republik to view the entire collection!

How do you help a shopping addict?

Jon Linden posted a link with some useful inventory management tips on the SL Official blog. But.butbutbut.. I NEED HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a giant Clothes folder. I’ve tried to organize with categories that make sense to me, like this:

Clothes

> Accessories

> Designers

> Random Designers

> Japanese Designers

> Random Japanese Designers

> Lolita

> Bikinis

> Lingerie

Those with their own category are because I have hundreds if not thousands of different labels all thrown in there.

My inventory is a hopeless black hole.. right now I have several hundred folders that are not filed. But since the grid is borked and I can’t tp anywhere! Guess what time it is…….. INVY MANAGEMENT TIME! *sulks*

bitterCandy Mmm

I went to bitterCandy to pick up the free wardrobe set and found some top quality clothes there. Kal Rau is a Brazilian designer and creator of KR (which sells mostly men’s fashion) and bitterCandy which features casual women’s clothing, shoes, and accessories.

[bitterCandy – Jean Shorts + Belt | bitterCandy – Striped Hoodie | bitterCandy – Allanis Top NO Stress Pink | Dutch Touch – socks | KR – Street Next shoes (Black & Next Flower2 print)

Ohh.. I love these KR Street next shoes, especially the pink Hawaiian print! <3

Yum textures..

[Shown above is all the KR – Street Next shoes with flower print]

Even though I mostly shop for girl stuff, I have to mention that KR mostly has men’s clothing!!! All the clothes are transferable so it makes gift giving a breeze. I would totally recommend that guys check out this shop for some stylish casual wear.

TP to KR & bitterCandy to view the entire collection!
