bi-monthly

publications,

and/or

Lookbook, is comprised of some of the top stylists and photographers in Second Life.

express a creative interpretation

of subjects, themes and ideas from all around the world and universe. Steaming from the minds of the artists, each issue encapsulate a new feeling altogether to bring new and exciting material to the masses of the grid. What

makes

this

publications

vastly

different from other magazines in Second Life would be that since this is indeed an independent publications.

Much of

the work is done by small numbers of people. Making this endeavor less about the finical aspect, fame and recognition of the fashion world, and more about the artistic creations crafted by the stylists and photographers. The hope of this publication is to show that the fashions we wrap ourselves up in each day can be transformed into something other then simple clothing. But into an overall experience of the clothing,

mixed

in

with

the

props,

locations, and overall look of the model. Which brings a heighten sense of what it means to be a creator.

T

his year has been a year of change for me. In my real life, I gradated right at the end of 2014. So, having a full year to be an adult was something I was both nervous and excited about. Going from a daily academic schedule for more then 16 years. to suddenly not having to study, read, teach, learn or do anything with school is such a weird feeling. Not having to get up early for classes, but spending the night before up studying or hanging with friends. Or having to prepare for a presenation and practicing infront of a mirror so that you know what you look like and buld the confiendence. Everything that went into academics and the social economical side effect of attending school is no longer apart of my life. That change is weird to me. Another thing changed, which makes me tear up still to this day. I won’t go into much detail, but I lost a huge portion of my heart recently. A void that I doubt will ever heal fully because the void was kept so close to me and so entrusted to others that I can’t forget how it felt before it was infact a void. Regardless of if that made sense or not, it does to me and I need this reminder of love and memoeries to have for future references. Change is both a great human experience and a painful one at the same time. Memories of life before and after a change keeps the human spirit alive. Change pushes us forward as we journey through our lives with these changes behind us, motivating us to move on. It’s the natural order of life. Once you have completed one section, we must progress to the next. Some sections are much earier to transition into than others. In some cases, some part of us will forever stay in one section, unable to move on due to a plethera of reason. Whether that is good or bad is totally up to opinon, and not for others to judge or critizie. But those changes; or constants, are apart of us and will shape who we are forever.

“People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for each person.When someone is in your life for a REASON . . . It is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and they are! They are there for the reason you need them to be.Then, without any wrong doing on your part, or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a

stand.What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered. And now it is time to move on.” “When people come into your life for a SEASON . . .Because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn.They bring you an experience of peace, or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season.” “LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.” As of recently, change has come, not just in the form of sadness. But in the form of happiness. The change that I have felt within my self has be astronomical. Pushing myself to reach outside of the box I put myself into. Breaking past limits set by the socieites inside of Second Life and not comforming to what a certain avatar should look like or what someone with influence needs to be. Having these changes happen to me at the current time couldn’t have happened at a better time in my life. We as humans need change, no matter how minor or major the change is. To grow as a person, you need some type of change to occure in your life. May it be the color of your hair or the look you want to present to the world as yourelf. Whatever that change is, be proud of it and to not let anyone hinder or damper what you feel or how you want to express youself. A great philosopher of our time once said a quote that I to this day apply to both my real life and second life.

“Unless they paying your bills, pay them bitches no mind.” -RuPaul Charles What you other people think of yourself is none of your buisness. So embrace those changes to who you are, what you are, or who you love. Change happens, and for some it’s harder to deal with than those who embrace it. Change changes.
