Trick’o'Mask at Skin City

Written by ina on Tuesday, 21 of October , 2008 at 11:19 am
Tags: , ,

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
2008 October 22

Skin City - Three days before Halloween 2008 (October 27th to October 31st), Skin City merchants will be putting out their Halloween treats in front of their stores. Unlike many promotional events, Trick’o'Mask strives to be unique and easy for residents of Second Life to participate in. To be given out are not just any treats, but masks — masks based on select skins created by Skin City designers! But, there’s more to the story:
The masks can be used to obtain discounts to its corresponding skin, and also to land on modeling opportunities for its bearer. Following this event will be the first ever Guy Fawkes Fashion Show on November 5th, where anyone who has a Trick’o'Mask mask get to walk on the Skin City runway and to win more prizes.

Mayor Ina Centaur explains the entertainment-based rationale behind the event, “Virtual candy is generally not as sweet or fun as its RL counterpart, so, instead, for Halloween we give masks - with famous faces based on skins created by the designers of Skin City! Customers who like the skin can then use the mask to activate a discount in a vendor containing the original skin the mask face is based on. For those who can’t afford the skin, they have a chance to win it at the Guy Fawkes Fashion show on Nov 5th - and maybe to land on future modeling opportunity to accumulate more fashion wealth on SL!”

The Trick’o'Mask event is from October 27th to October 31st. The Guy Fawkes Fashion Show, where all are welcome to model is on November 5th.

Trick o Mask at Skin City 10 27 to 10 31

Skin City, Second Life: The “RFL Grand Finale Vendor Fair” opening on July 1st, and running until the end of Relay of Life on July 19th, features some of RFL 2008’s best fashions.

All proceeds of the event will benefit the American Cancer Society through the Relay for Life venture on Second Life. But, most interestingly, every single component of each outfit — from skin, to hair, to shoes, to eyes, to clothing, of course — is an RFL item.

The following fashion brands will have their RFL fashions shown live on the Sky Globe 4-sim runway:

All fashions can be purchased directly in the Vendor Fair adjacent to the fashion show venue at the Sky Globe, Skin City.

ABOUT THE SKY GLOBE:
550 meters above the SL Globe Theatre, the Sky Globe is a postmodern architectural building spanning the intersection of 4 island simulators, with the stage on its own sim adjacent to three audience seating venues in neighboring island simulators:

ABOUT SKIN CITY
Since August 2007, Skin City has been the one-stop place to see a wide selection of skins, shapes, eyes, and other avatar accessories on SL. The build is grayscale based on Frank Miller’s Sin City (theatrical version), and only the various shops give it color. Visitors are told: Turn the right corner in Skin City, and you can find anything. Merchants are told: We are noir until you!

4-Sim RFL Fashion Show & Vendor Fair @ Skin City

Written by ina on Wednesday, 25 of June , 2008 at 11:55 pm
Tags: , ,

On behalf of RFL and fashion in Second Life, Skin City invites all
designers who have created items for RFL to participate in the RFL
Grand Finale 4-sim Fashion Show and Vendor Fair at Skin City and
vicinity.

The RFL Vendor Fair is open to the public from 7/1 to 7/14; designers
may start setting up in the metro region starting on 6/25. The RFL
Grand Finale Fashion Shows are on Sunday 7/6 @ 1 PM SL Time and Monday
7/7 @ 7 PM SL Time. Both events will have search parcels designated
shortly before they open. All designers are welcome to participate in
either or both events. Details below.

RFL Vendor Fair: The RFL Vendor Fair is meant to be a final display of
your RFL designs, and also as a small showcase of the non-RFL designs
you feel represent you the most. To participate in the vendor fair,
you must RSVP by 6/26 11:59 PM SL Time to Ina Minotaur by dropping off
a notecard named “RFL Vendor Fair: (Your Store / Name)” with ad photos
of all of your RFL items, and a rough minimum and maximum prim count
for your proposed store space. Space for the duration of the Fair is
donated by Skin City, and available on a first-come-first-serve-basis.

RFL Fashion Show on 4-Sims: This fashion show will be accessible to
the maximal amount of local audience members, and will be one last
chance for people to hype and rave about these RFL fashions live on
the runway. The only requirement is that each outfit must feature an
item on sale in an RFL vendor. To participate, please drop off a
notecard named “RFL Fashion Show: (Your Store / Name)” to Ina Minotaur
by 6/27 11:59 PM with:

1)       a specific outline of the exact outfit combination(s) you would
want the model(s) to wear—be sure to indicate which outfit item is an
RFL item, and also, if you don’t have preferences for non-RFL outfit
components, please state so. Do NOT drop outfit inventories on Ina
Minotaur.  You will be given more information after processing. You
must show a different RFL item on each model, but there is no explicit
limit on how many models you can clog up ;-)
2)      a brief biography about you/your store. LM’s, blog links, and other
information also welcome. Optionally, you may also include exact item
descriptions for the MC to announce.
3)      specify whether you would want to be included in the fashion show
machinima to be distributed for free inworld, and also on youtube,
blip.tv, google videos, and similar media.

The show is pro bono for RFL.

Here is a LM that gets you close to the event location. An exact parcel
will be segmented out when the fair and show open:
