BVN Collab: "On the Road to Sloachella" with Wynn Klaar and Fauve Aeon

When the Blogger and Vlogger Network runs a collaboration, I really try to opt in! So far I have had 2 really good experiences and I can really recommend joining the inworld group and the Discord for lots of great news, opportunities and benefits, including early access to events...it's really one of my most useful SL groups!

This time I was paired with ShopSL's lovely  Wynn Klarr for the collaboration. Since I only did a short collab when I drew her last time, this was the perfect opportunity for us to take a bit of time out of our day and have a chance to chat together as we scouted the locations and did some quick shopping. It was a pleasure to dish fashion, photography methods and to compare our approaches, which were very compatible in some ways and very independent and different in others, as it turned out! Great fun, many laughs were had and I learned some really good tips along the way! Wynn turned up perfectly dressed and ready, I was still making a mood board, and we tested some Windlights in 2 locations and a story started to form a bit as we talked, mainly informed by the locations, the lighting and the poses, we are both big fans of shooting on location...read on below to check it out. Wynn is a pleasure to work with, very professional about her work yet still lots of fun and I'd highly recommend a collaboration with her if you have the opportunity!

All dressed up in summer Boho trendiness, plans firmly in hand with our Windlight choices and wine stash, Wynn and Fauve met up early one morning to travel to "SLoachella"...

Our route was planned but...

Onoes, BROKEN DOWN on the road in the early morning...

Are we doomed before we even get there?

Will we even make it to the festival at all? Only time will tell...

...fortunately, the days are short in SL and the champagne never runs dry! :) Lots of laughs, a few lighting hurdles and before you know it, we were getting comfy at the edge of the festival grounds...on the outskirts, as the crowds were fierce!

Who was the last act of the day? You'll have to ask Wynn because as you can see, I was really enjoying the champagne, my hair got wild, my boots were stumbling and things are are getting little, well...fuzzy...shall we say? Ah, hm...all's well that ends well riiiiight? :D

Hop on over to Wynn's website, ShopSL or check her Flickr for her fashion rundown as well as more details on our adventure, as I am sure she will have a much clearer picture, quite literally! Any speculations on where we will turn up next are just that, pure conjecture! But I can hint a bit...... Whitby? M'era Luna?...Wave Gotik Treffen? 
You'll have to tune in next time and see!

Until then, this is Fauve Aeon signing off on the Second Life Festival circuit with 
a mixtape playlist bonus that I managed to score from our shoot location!

My First Collaboration (with Quincy Robin)

Grid Status: Online | In-World: 48,898 | SL Time: 4:25 pm

It's been a busy summer full of learning experiences for me and over at BVNSL, we volunteered to be matched up with another blogger in Second Life™ to do a styling collaboration. Since I am brand new to blogging with others, I was more than a little nervous...I am such a chameleon in SL and my style is very whimsical and honestly - all over the map, in a contrast to First Life where my style is very set. 

After a false start where my original partner had to bow out due to RL concerns, I am pleased to say that I was matched with Quincy Robin. I was very impressed with her blogging and especially her vlogging because she has such a calm and professional approach and her films are so well coordinated. She is a delight to work with, very supportive, considerate and encouraging and she really has such impeccable style! Her manner is very warm and also funny too and many laughs and tips were thrown around while we got ready. I hope she had as much fun as I did. :)

Akeruka Lulu Bento Mesh Head - Shape Up

Grid Status: Online | In-World: 50,367 | SL Time: 1:43 pm

I think today is the last day to pick up Akeruka Lulu and Aron 2.6 as group gifts with a L$150 join fee. I will list my shape for Lulu x Maitreya on the MP in a few days. As you can see, I still need much work to transform the body shape to fit the Maitreya body. I think I will do 3 body types, model, slim and curvy. Ive learned so much this year about shapes and proportions!
I wonder...should I do a system body shape too? These heads come with full skins, appliers and are compatible with the Second Life system body. I still wear a full system avatar in Kitely. 

[AK] Mesh Head Lulu Vers. 2.6 Bento + teeth...the skin, appliers and makeup is what comes with the HUD though I did some tinting, as I always do for most everything tint-able in Second Life!
