Second Life Resident Choice Awards Open Tomorrow

Catherine Linden posted an announcement on the Big Blog three days ago that Linden Lab will be running its first annual Resident Choice Awards, beginning tomorrow, March 31.  Residents will get to vote on the best “people, places and things you’ve found and created here.”  The duration of the voting will probably be running, based on this early announcement, between March 31 and April 7 — and the Lindens are disqualifying themselves from participation.

Information beyond this is thin on the ground for now, so check back, both here and at the Big Blog, for more starting tomorrow.  And remember:  if there’s a best blog category, you can guess who’d I’d urge you to (WHACK!!!)

(Okay, okay, I get the idea.  Sheesh….)

Ewing Fashion Agency Design Awards

The Ewing Fashion Agency held its 2008 Design Awards on January 20th. While I was unable to attend, I had some interest in this season; 1, it was my first season in Second Life; and 2, I had purchased nominated items from two of the designers in the competition.

And I’m very glad to say that both of my nominees won! Personal congratulations go out to Ann Otoole for her Andromeda gown, which I wrote up and modeled as one of the holiday trio between Christmas and New Year’s Day; and to Digit Darkes for her wild Cher-like mohawk hair called Defiance, which I just couldn’t resist! And a batch of general congratulations and best wishes to all of the winners.
