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.

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?

Just a quick note to say “Wear your system skirts with pride!”Left is Jennifer Connely for Balenciaga,right is moi for Nicky Ree!
If Balenciaga designs these skirts for real women then why should we worry about wearing system skirts that give an extra volume to our hips?I just wonder!
Take a look at the new Balenciaga collection here(official site) !Seems like some truly virtual inspiration to me!
More thoughts and credits after the cut… (if u get a cut,seems it’s broken somehow)
It’s raining bad comments for Second Life and its residents….and i’m writing this being not only sad but also dissapointed.The title of the link on sweetsecondlife that caught my eye yesterday while browsing was “Lancia to Launch car in Second Life,before First Life”. Working for a Commercial Park in Second Life where many real life companies promote their products , i got interested on reading the article.Bad decision…. Continue reading
