A friend gave me a notice just a while ago for a shop selling stolen products and i went to see for myself.I was totally suprised of seeing items identical to ETD hair,Cake sunglasses,Last Call Frida outfit and many many more.There’s a protest going on right now outside this store and as i was informed many designers who were aware of this,visit the place to see they’re ripped off creations.
I was not aware of this till just a while ago,but i felt it was needed to report it as soon as i learned.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: 30/3 : Stephanie Misfit on Fashion Victim (press to read here ) has written a very interesting post about content theft and protests.After my latest experience (last night) in front of a store with stolen stuff and after discussing with a lot of people (including designers) about this, i tend to agree with Stephanie that protesting might not be the indicated way to act.It could do damage to the efforts of the designers tracking these people plus it gives credit to the thieves translated to exposure and traffic.
***Now,since this is brought up ,on the sidebar there are always 3 Jira links.All you have to do is link to each of the 3 of them ,loggin to your second life acount (that is needed only once ) and vote on the jira side left down where it says “vote “.It takes 2 minutes the most.The more the votes are,the more the pressure is for the Linden Labs to solve these isssues which all are relative to content theft and reassuring the deisgners ‘ work.Thanks.
This is reporter Chrisy J live from the RFL Clothing Fair…
-Hot news!Latest fashion trend comes directly from the Official Second life blog .”I see gray people…and they walk around like they don’t know they are gray…”.<(read all about it).
Well ,apparently they don’t know they look gray for everybody else.Take the pic above for example.I just teleported to the Clothing Fair.Everybody around me is gray.I see myself rezzed (but still dressed all gray,ok,that was a happy coincidence-wooohooo,am i trendy!).Each of these girls around me see everybody else gray ( including me too ,but you can’t see it on this pic,cause you look through my eyes right now).I look ok to myself but i don’t know that everyone else is seeing me gray AND all the others….An imaginary conversation about this right there, would end like “Nooooo,YOU look gray!And YOU!aND YOU!”,”No,it’s you,you you!i see me ok!”,”stop that u too!you are all gray here except me of course!”.
Conclusion:wear any color you want.You get automatically in the latest gray trend.And that is official!
*In case someone says to you (which is very possible to happen) :”Ummm,sorry but you are grey….” and you want to be ready to answer “But i am in gray!”,follow the steps below:
1.wear bijou shake pantsuit in black (black grey-prim cuffs are not worn here)
2.wear cubic effect Full sculpted knit jacket (dark grey)

Love and health for all,
That CIA is living a Second Life,it’s known to almost everybody by now.Some wonderful people have already covered this issue like Harper Ganesvoort here, Matt Harley here and Hamlet Au here.And probably others that i ‘m not aware of their particular posts,i’m sorry.
Now comes the part i like.The codename for the CIA project for watching virtual worlds is Reynard.You can also read this article for details on Intendblog.
And who is Reynard? (Indeed the guy naming this project has a good sense of humour!)
About Reynard the fox :
hero of several medieval European cycles of versified animal tales that satirize contemporary human society. Though Reynard is sly, amoral, cowardly, and self-seeking, he is still a sympathetic hero, whose cunning is a necessity for survival. He symbolizes the triumph of craft over brute strength, usually personified by Isengrim, the greedy and dull-witted wolf.
*every single word of Reynard’s description shows how symbolic the name of the project is.Triumph of craft over brute strength?Isengrim ,the bad wolf?Reynard’s cunning is a necessity for survival.Yup!True!
Now what can a poor fashion blogger in virtual worlds contribute to this issue with her poor english?Not much.Hmmm,maybe,just maybe some styling directions for the female “Reynards” in Second Life?
My thought was to bring Reynard from medieval forests to today’s virtual gardens and turn him into a female.
So, if i was a secret agent in Second Life,i’d wear the following:
Since spring’s on the way ,i’d pass immediately to shorts,oh yes.My outfit would be the Birdwatcher suit (symbolic too?) in khaki from Shai.I’d wear my Akeyo chucks turned to olive .I would cover my face with Cake Tortouise shell (tartarouge) la femme glasses and MG fashions brown leather cap.I’d go anywhere with my Telephoto lens camera bought from Icing.I’d also wear the BSD Citizen belt. (Additional credits:Magika-classy hair black,Bianca F-natural skin lips A and poses by RE).
Yes,yes it would be so obvious i’m “watching”.But then ,if it was so obvious,noone would believe i’m really a “watcher”,right?
