The Tears of a Clown

1 Tears of a Clown_004

Now there’s some sad things known to man
But ain’t too much sadder than
the tears of a clown
When there’s no one around, oh yeah

Smokey Robinson – “The Tears Of A Clown”

Smokey sang about the loss of a love in this song, but these particular lyrics – and the clown’s tears – can apply equally to animals that are lost, abandoned or abused. In the United States, the ASPCA is the group that is tasked with the humane treatment and prevention of cruelty of animals. To benefit this organisation, Seraphim has put together a massive event that will run from November 6-26. Over 100 designers will come together with circus-themed items with donations going to the ASPCA.

You can check out the Cirque de Serpahim blog or Flickr page for a sneak-preview of some of the items that will be available. SLurls to the two (yes, two!) sims will be published there when the event opens and I’ll be adding them into my update posts on and after November 6.

Start saving your pennies for this event; you don’t want to be the one to make the clown cry.

Kuro & Ice Cream, Ohmai!

1 Ice Cream Ohmai

I know, my blog has been gathering cobwebs lately, but I will be flooding the interwebs again, at least for the next few days. I have lots of newness and pretties to show off!

Kuro has two new releases for events Saturday, so make sure you pop over to the mainstore for some delicious ice cream and a handy table. These are for The Dreaming Tree and The Neighbourhood, so these are one-day only events. They will still be in the store later, but not at the special prices.

I’m sure you’re going to need something to do while you wait to get into Hair Fair, anyway. In case you’ve been sleeping, it has officially opened. This year I was one of the fortunate bloggers allowed early access and I promise, it is better than ever!

I am predicting that ALL of the styles from !Ohmai will be crowd favourites. Each style comes with two versions – a “plain” version and one with “Tweeter friends.” I seriously went into SQUEEEEEEEE! mode when I visited the store. And make sure you pick up the adorable gift pack; I’m not showing the contents today, but I will soon. I hope you have a chance to pick it up before I spoil the surprise 😉

K Is For Kinky

1 K is for Kinky_030

I’m talking about the hair! Sheeeesh, what did you think this post was going to be about? 😉

The Salome hair by [LeLutka] is my go-to hair when I want a hairstyle that is a little bit avant garde. It is one of those items that I would never delete, or if it accidentally disappeared from my inventory I would run to replace immediately. It’s almost two years old, but I think a lot of people would agree that it is just an amazing hairstyle. I’m not sure if I would describe it as controlled or uncontrolled kinky, but it is sexy and funky and perfect.

I also made this pose for my photo. I knew that I was going to use this hair and I actually wanted my hands to be closer to my head, like I was primping my hair. That didn’t work out lol I still have a lot of learning to do before I am able to translate my avatar’s body into exactly the position I see in my head. I have even more respect now than I ever did for the ability of pose makers. That they are able to create poses that make our avatars look natural and not like Quasimodo is a real talent!
