The Fashion Showcase Begins!

Okay, so I’ve been secretly bubbling over with the giddy.

A few weeks ago I had this brilliant idea (I think all of my ideas are brilliant – just ask Borday).

A Fashion Showcase at the Bee Hive.

I mean, think about!


Designers get exposure, the club gets exposure, DJ Borday gets exposure, I get to work with some of my FAVORITE designers ever! It’s win/win for everyone.

So I IMed Busybee Beaver, dumping my brain spasms onto her. And as usual, she was receptive.

So I got busy. I IMed first and foremost, Skinkie Winkler. Skinkie is the creator behind ~flirt~ jewelry. If you’ve never seen it, you MUST. Very beautiful, very classic, very trendy. And Skinkie, as in the past, was very positive about the venture and eager to work with me. If you’re interested, please check out the ~flirt~ blog at http://flirtacious.wordpress.com/ .

Now I was REALLY bubbling with the giddy. I IMed two of my other favorite designers – this time clothing – Sachi Vixen from Adam N Eve and Tuli Asturias from []::Tuli::[]. Both designers were also very receptive to the idea and happy to take part as well.

Could it be? Could the creators of the very clothes I covet be interested in working with me at the Bee Hive for a showcase? Now I’m just bouncing around – beyond excited. What’s beyond excited you ask? Me!

So now, I won’t lie. I haven’t the foggiest clue how this will go.

It could be a total flop. Nobody could show.

I could be wasting everyone’s time.

Now if I thought like that, I’d never try anything. Ever.

So I plow ahead. Booking more creators/designers/builders and planting them each two weeks apart.

I’m honored to say that Beverly Zauberflote from Witchy Woman Designs and Aeryn Lovenkraft from Lovenkrafted Shapes have also agreed to hop on board and take part in the Showcase.

So I’m just hoping nobody changes their mind. I’m hoping people show up. And, I suppose, above all else, I’m hoping this is a positive experience for everyone involved.

So, if you’re reading this and interested in taking part in the showcase, please drop me an IM or notecard. I’d be happy to speak with you and work things out.

SO! Beginning June 17th from 6-8 PM SLT, the Fashion Showcase kicks off with ~flirt~ and will run through the summer with some of the best and brightest in Second Life. I hope to see you there – even if it’s for a moment.

And now, I’m going to take my super giddy..super excited butt to bed.

Thanks for reading this far.

And if you want to help..please IM me! I’d love the help! Before every featured designer, I will post about them and whatever outfits/goods I own from them. :) So stay tuned!

sounds fun Bliss :) I have never known you to be without a SLproject in the works... "productions by blissie" should be its own industry! Hoo!

I imagine when I'm not bubbling over with ideas..it means I'm sick.

I am with you, Blissie. Most have come to expect my sudden out burst when discussing plans I have (or dancing at At Last) and I have new ideas and need to interject them and work them out verbally before making them real.

got 4 irons in the fire right now, but as soon as one or two of them are removed to cool, I will help you get "productions by blissie" off and running. : )
