The Second (Almost) Annual UnEVENTful Challenge


I hadn’t planned on doing a second post today, but it’s turning into a day of seconds.

Earlier, in the SL Blogger Support group chat in world, we got into a spirited discussion about “the old days,” back before shopping events became the way to shop. About the competition to find the latest, best, newest releases and the race to be the first to blog them. About grid-hopping parties, where someone would take the lead and mass TP a group of followers all around the grid. Yes, those good old days…

During the course of the conversation, I mentioned that a while ago (unbelievably to me, over two years ago!) I posted a challenge I called The Uneventful Challenge. In this challenge, you are not allowed to wear/show anything that has been purchased at an event. Before I could blink, I was being asked to revive the challenge. With input from this enthusiastic group, I am tweaking the rules from the original, and I have created a Flickr Group for everyone to add their photos.

And now, on with the rules…

Second Life Movie Poster Challenge 2016: Peeping Beauty

1 Peeping Beauty sm

I was very happy to see that Strawberry Singh started her memes back a few weeks ago. Before her hiatus, I participated regularly; but this is the first one I have managed to do in recent times. No matter how busy I have been in real life, the Second Life Movie Poster Challenge from 2013 was one of my very favourites, and I wasn’t about to miss out this time!

For those of you who want to participate, here are the instructions:

Meme instructions: Create a movie poster for your Second Life Avatar or SLife. You can base it off an original movie poster or think of a completely new idea of your own! Please be careful of copyright issues and try not to use copyrighted elements in your work. Remember to share a link to your poster in the comments (of Berry’s post) and the Blog Memes Flickr Group. You don’t have to have a blog to do this challenge, you can share your image on any social platform you prefer.

In keeping with my original meme, I decided to play on my name. After wracking my brain for movies with “sleep” in the title, I settled on Sleeping Beauty. Thankfully, with the different eye positions available with my CATWA head, it was relatively easy to create a photo with one eye closed and one eye open. And like the last time, I found myself giggling as I created this poster.

Do please pop over to Berry’s blog to see all of the entries. There are details there on Glasz DeCuir’s upcoming exhibition of Second Life movie posters, as well.

Now I just have to wait for that prince to show up so I can fully awaken. I just hope my hundred-year morning breathe doesn’t kill him!

…Should You Choose To Accept It

1 Homberg Shoes_2

So I seem to have a mannequin theme going here, lately.

This was an accidental photo after I had spent literally hours on a totally different image wearing a different outfit in a different location using a different pose for the same theme. Don’t you love when a plan comes together? I just wish it had come together before I spent all that time on the other set up!

I was challenged by Rwah to create a photo of myself fixing my shoe. She had been challenged by Len Douglas to take a photo of herself fixing her bra. It was inspired by his photo of himself fixing his tie.

I, in turn, invited Wendz Tempest to create a photo of herself fixing her stocking. Her mission, which she has chosen to accept, is not only to create the image but to challenge someone else to fix something else.

We’re regular McGyvers here. No disrespect intended, Mr Phelps.

When Johnfrancis Laville passed me over this sexy Homberg, he said he wasn’t sure if it would work for a woman. Pffft, I say! What’s sexier than grabbing your man’s hat and slipping it on with a pair of Come Get Me pumps from Essenz and this tiny fishnet top and (broken) panties by Apple May Designs? Especially when you’re comparing yourself to a static model, even if she is dressed only in a rosebud? It’s all about standing next to some(one)thing that doesn’t look as good as you 😉

My mission is complete. *Cue self-destructing tape and sizzling match with cheesy 1960’s theme music*
