6th Annual Oscar Fashion Photo Contest — Final Update

It’s not going to be over-difficult to judge this year’s OFPC, at least in one sense.  I still have less than 20 entries this year.  If you’ve been trying to make up your mind over entering, it’s time to get off the dime; there’s under a week to go before it closes for this year.  Come on, folks, it’s usually not this difficult to give away money!

=====

Of course, it’s always a tradition for me to show off what I’d wear to the Academy Awards.  Several nice gowns came out just recently, and I was thinking of a group gift from PurpleMoon, to be truthful.  But, in the end, I chose this:

My Oscar Gown 1

Luscious emerald silk from Baiastice in this case, supported halter-style by a gold necklet looped through a slit in the cleavage.  It catches attention with the rich color, the sinuous hugging of my curves, and that little peekaboo right there, and that daring yet demure slit.  And it’s framed in a location that works well for functions like the Oscars — or would if it was real:  the Rose Theatre complex.  This is something of a go-to location for red-carpet photographers, and not just because of the red carpet; it has all these wonderful vistas and long hallways, making for lots of Grand Entrance possibilities.  It was the most often used backdrop in last year’s contest, and the one I chose for my own photos.

I was going to wear my usual red hair — one reason I went with green, of course — then threw tradition to the wind on a whim, and went blonde.  The jewelry is from Chop Zuey — Belle Roussel is becoming a tradition for me for evening wear, unless I plop for Lazuri.

My Oscar Gown 5

My best prim lashes — meaning the ones I have the best adjusted to my eyes — are an old set from Miamai.  A little glittery, but that works with evening wear.

Long Night

Whew!  It was a long night, but a good one.  I think I’ll just crash right here in front of the fireplace, if you don’t mind….

Circle In The Sand

Circle In The Sand 2

Sundown all around
Walking through the summer’s end
Waves crash
Baby don’t look back
I won’t walk away again

Circle In The Sand 3

Oooooh, baby, anywhere you go
We are bound together
I begin, baby, where you end
Some things are forever

Circle in the sand, ’round and ’round
Neverending love is what we’ve found
And you complete the heart of me
Our love is all we need
Circle in the sand, circle in the sand

— “Circle In the Sand” by Ellen Shipley and Rick Nowels; performed by Belinda Carlisle

The OFPC might be over for another year, but I’m still scrambling to get back into stride here at Around the Grid, what with various RL things going on; I seem to be on the road quite a bit lately, so that my usual times for writing are getting eaten up.  So it was delightful to get a few minutes to jump over to Dani Plassitz’ store, Styles by Danielle, and pick up a few beautiful things to do a photo shoot. 

Another photo and the details follow the break.

Baiastice At the Pixel Bean

Sometimes you just gotta slow down and relax.  That’s what’s so nice about the various popular coffee houses and bars in Second Life, such as the Pixel Bean (redesigned from last year); you can kick back as much as you want, have a cuppa virtual tea or coffee, even pet a cat if you want.  (You can’t do that in real coffee houses, of course; health laws won’t let them have a house cat or dog.)
