EDITOR´S WORDS By Ananda Valeeva Happy New Year! Happy





everybody! It has been a wonderful time to celebrate and renew goals and dreams. Life is simply fascinating and I wish 2010 will be full of new challenges, happiness and success. Our magazine will soon complete a year. We are proud of what we have done and, certainly will do, as our goal is to improve ourselves and our mag for you. Lets start one more year of great real and virtual lives and live them the best way we can, by reaching beyond we have dreamed. 2010 is just the first of our best years!!! To start this New Year we decided long ago to talk about the awesome artistic talent and skills that come

from the East. It is amazing how those artists can express their culture, imagination and dreams in real textures, fantastic shapes and dreamy landscapes, fashion or avatars and typical decoration and architecture. Enjoy our special article: “The East Beauty”. Japan Tempura is a fulfilled dream of kikunosuke Eel, an amazing and very special person and artist from Japan, who also illustrates our special interview of this Issue. This “TP to…” is simply magical and very touching. She certainly deserves our Stamp Award and we applaud the incredible jewelry and fashion she creates. Check out the interview with deliziosa Vendetta, a super Italian artist, who charms us. You will love our Fashion, Inspect and Top 5 full of beauties … January is just the start of great surprises we are preparing for this year. Lets welcome, a Happy 2010!!! Enjoy our new Issue and have fun. ★ Kisses Ananda Valeeva INNERWORLD MAGAZINE CEO / Senior Writer / Editor-in-Chief

COVER´S CHALLENGE By Thereaver Barrymore I'm in love! When Ananda and I decided what would be the theme for this issue and we defined who would be the special interviewed, we immediately thought of kikunosuke Eel, the wizard creator of the JAPAN TEMPURA Sim. If he accepted the interview, he would certainly be the cover! It was what I had in mind. Since our first contact, kikunosuke always has been friendly and soon accepted the interview. We scheduled the shoot in his Sim surrounded by the beautiful orange trees and kikunosuke was accompanied by his interpreter Clione Clary and the Island’s Officer chikae Ella. kikunosuke Eel has a strikingly beautiful avatar and came dressed in a kimono and was brandishing his samurai sword. The cover could not be other than him. It would be nonsense not picture him! Clione helped us with the translations and made the photo shooting be a very nice moment. I clicked his best angles, highlighting also the beautiful scenery. After some close up, the cover was ready. I hope you enjoy the cover and this issue! ★ Thereaver Barrymore INNERWORLD MAGAZINE Art Director

SPECIAL The East Beauty It is true that multiplayer online games were a successful industry in Asia before the virtual worlds widespread around the world. So, it is natural that they would be interested in a Life Simulator such as Second Life. The Asian virtual community is so important and big that even Linden labs created a version of Second Life for The Land of the Rising Sun. Linden Lab CEO said that expansion in the country with one of the world's largest Internet populations - China - is not a priority, but certainly their strategies to conquer them will grow. China is a huge Internet-connected population, and has a large number

Hosoi Ichiba Owner: Amiryu Hosoi

It is an Asian-themed open air market surrounding a meditation garden located on the traditional Asian-themed cluster of 4 stunning islands. Hosoi Ichiba is well known for the high quality Asian themed furniture, buildings and decoration. It is one of the most wonderful places of SL to visit and shop.

36 | InnerWorld Magazine :: Issue 12 - January 2010

Grasp / Sweetaholic Owner: Asalt Eames

It is an entire island for two stores of its creator, Asalt Eames. The Grasp specializes in modern and dark clothes for men and women, and its design is fantastic. The Sweetaholic is near Grasp and it is gorgeous. This store is simply breathtaking and sells only Kimonos, traditional clothing and accessories for Geishas.

38 | InnerWorld Magazine :: Issue 12 - January 2010

AKEYO Owner: artoo Magneto

Akeyo was one of the first stores to use sculpts in its creations. They also apply ultra-realistic textures on their creations, especially on the most famous and perfect sneakers of SL. Besides their amazing products, the shop has futuristic furniture and architecture and was also one of the pioneers to apply shadow on their creations, which makes everything more real. Currently AKEYO is one of the largest stores in MOCAP (Motion Capture).

Ryushosha Owner: ryusho Ort

His creations are perfect and impress per its art, details and real textures. He offers realistic altars, sculptures, complete avatars of Buddhist and Hindus deities, amazing silk kimonos, special Asian outfits and has built an entire Sim just to homage Buddha and his faith. You will get very touched by the art of this sweet and kind creator called ryusho.

40 | InnerWorld Magazine :: Issue 12 - January 2010

Off-Brand Furniture Owner: Haruka Ackland

A furniture store whose name already tells about what we will find there: unusual creations. Each detail is a surprise and each furniture is very detailed. You will get very charmed there. Take a look everywhere and try to “feel� the shapes and uniqueness. If you like to be different, this is your place to find decoration.

ARGRACE Owner: rika Oyen

It is one of the biggest fashion brands of SL. Besides the awesome outfits and hair they create, the store itself worth the visit and the talented artist who creates everything there is rika Oyen. You will find decoration and fashion there and I guarantee, it is really difficulty to not fall in love with ARGRACE´s products. Colors, shades and any tiny details are impressive. They also were the first store to link hair with Berets, Caps and Hats, and it all are modeled in 3D.

42 | InnerWorld Magazine :: Issue 12 - January 2010

COCO DESIGNS Owner: yamaimo Allen (owner) / Cocoro Lemon (designer)

Its store has always kept our attention. The architecture and special landscape where we could find poses were an invitation for photographers. The store is still very attractive now days, even though it has a new design now. This place is perfect for taking photos. If you like to explore and be surprised, run to visit COCO.

JAPANESE GOODS SHOP Owner: Giorno Brando

A tiny spot in the sky invites you to a new adventure. This platform will take you to visit a nice town where you will find small Asian themed stores. You will enjoy a lot this place where you can buy traditional creations from Japan. Take some time to visit the beautiful Buddhist temple. It worth!

44 | InnerWorld Magazine :: Issue 12 - January 2010

This subject is really fascinating and I love their culture. Actually, I love Eastern culture and will certainly talk more about it soon. I want to thank my dear Thereaver for helping me with information about the stores. ★

Our souls feel lighter and many feelings come to surround our beings… Keep dreaming, exploring and searching for each detail and I am sure you will fall in love with Tempura!

kikunosuke Eel: I used to work as a photographer for my friend and taking snapshots for her blog. Then, we came up with this idea of visiting the owner of dejavu without making any appointment! Later that "sudden interview" I was asked to take photos for his magazine, and WOW! What an awesome surprise!! LOL Since then, my life as a photographer has totally changed as you can imagine. I've been learning to take photos that fascinate readers, and charm their souls... I still keep close relationship with those friends I got to know through dejavu.

I enjoy the differences between national traits and I heard that some couples found each other in Tempura, and got married in RL. I was quite touched by the fact that the digital world I created even changed some people's REAL lives. I am so happy that I've created Tempura Island. I feel so grateful to all my precious friends in SL. And I am thankful that I could come across this world where I could train/educate my soul. InnerWorld: What have you learned because of Second Life? kikunosuke Eel: hmmm.... the "beauty" and "ugliness" of virtual world. For instance, it is not always good to have the skill or touch to make it look so real. You know, it looks or feels more

gentle/warm if you draw shadows with your hand than the ones baked with rendering software. The beauty that influences the (five) senses





whereas artificial or contrived beauty may give you just a cold impression. Even when I am in virtual world, I feel as if I came back to the same starting point.... I mean the "power of healing" is what matters to all of us after all.... that is what I've learned in here. ★
