Shena’s Letter/Carta de Shena

SPRING

SPRING 2018

2018

It is not easy thinking about spring when I look outside the window and everything is still snowy here.

No es fácil pensar en la primavera cuando me asomo a la ventana y aquí está todo nevado.

I prepare myself a coffee, I sit down to write my letter and I think for a while about something I’ve read in Giz’s interview ... A perfect day just needs a walk in the sun with your dog, listening to the sounds of the countryside, the nothing , only you and your own thoughts.

Me hago un café, me siento a escribir mi carta y recapacito un tiempo en algo que he leído en la entrevista de Giz... Un día perfecto solo necesita de un paseo al sol con tu perro, escuchando los sonidos del campo, la nada, solo tú y tus propios pensamientos.

There are people who expect great events to be fully happy, and they are totally wrong for not assessing each and all and of those little moments day to day of which is really composed the happiness. Happiness is this very moment, that next to a coffee and being with myself, I start to reflect on the things that are really worthwhile.

Hay personas que esperan grandes acontecimientos para ser plenamente felices, y se equivocan por completo al no valorar esos pequeños instantes del día a día de que está compuesta realmente la felicidad. Feliz es este mismo instante en que junto a un café y junto conmigo misma me pongo a reflexionar sobre las cosas que realmente merecen la pena.

Happy are those moments in which we are able to remember that we should never lose our essence and value everything we have without ever losing the perspective of who we are and what we do not want to become.

Felices son esos instantes en que somos capaces de recordar que nunca debemos perder nuestra esencia y valorar todo lo que tenemos sin perder nunca la perspectiva de quienes somos y en que no queremos convertirnos.

The snow will melt soon giving way to the birth of flowers, smells and colors of spring.

La nieve pronto se derretirá dando paso al nacimiento de las flores, olores y colores de primavera. Espero que disfruten de esta edición de primavera... cuando la espectacular transformación del sakura muestra al mundo el misterioso ciclo de la vida.

I hope you enjoy this spring edition ... when the spectacular transformation of the sakura shows to the world the mysterious cycle of life

When it comes to gifts, I am of the mindset that it is better to give than to get. Yet I have to admit, it is fun to be the recipient of some sort of treasure. It doesn’t have to be extravagant-sometimes a simple gesture is more meaningful.

Cuando se trata de regalos, tengo la mentalidad de que es mejor dar que recibir. Sin embargo, debo admitir que es divertido ser el receptor de algún tipo de tesoro. No tiene por qué ser extravagante, a veces un simple gesto es más significativo.

The longer I experience SL and the friends I have made here from around the world, the more I value those simple and caring gestures. SL is such a creative and vibrantly artistic and caring community.

Cuanto más tiempo experimento SL y los amigos que he hecho aquí de todo el mundo, más valoro esos gestos simples y cariñosos. SL es una comunidad creativa, vibrante, artística y afectuosa.

And, always there is the joy of scouting the many shops of SL from art galleries and fashion boutiques offering everything from runway designs to urban grunge to stores that sell every imaginable accessory for our home and landscaping needs…we have endless choices!

Y siempre existe la alegría de explorar las numerosas opciones de SL, desde galerías de arte y tiendas de moda que ofrecen desde diseños de pasarelas hasta grunge urbano a tiendas que venden todos los accesorios imaginables para nuestras necesidades de hogar y jardinería... ¡tenemos infinitas opciones!

In this 2018 Spring/Summer issue of Versus we hope to bring you a few hours of blissful discovery and a world of treasures to be found on the grid…especially things rarified and unique.

En este ejemplar de Versus de primavera / verano de 2018, esperamos brindarle unas horas de descubrimiento maravilloso y un mundo de tesoros en la red... especialmente cosas raras y únicas. Espero que este tema te ayude en tu búsqueda para encontrar y adoptar una visión estética que refleje quién eres en ambas vidas... ¡y recuerda, se siempre extraordinario!

I hope this issue helps you in your quest to curate and embrace an aesthetic vision that reflects who you are in both lives…and remember, always to be extraordinary!

or many of us, these words reflect the essential GIZ, you can wear her fashions and look fabulous and not spend a zillion lindens… why… because you can always count on her style and eye for detail -- and always look like you have walked right off the runway and into his or her heart. Giz cultivates a kind of cultish mystique and she has a large and faithful following in SL.

Giz has a strong sense of fashion and history - her role model is Ataturk, because she considers him to be the smartest and the most humane leader in history. Versus decided to get to know the real Giz, a person that her friends describe as a workaholic! “My friends also think that I am patient, helpful and fun… and a bit spicy at times because I can flare up – but I always calm down easily.”

The most defining mom her beautiful daughter. “ I held her for the first tim responsible. She is also t Giz is most proud of her d that she would give to h most important thing. Li you love. Figure out ways

With this in mind, when asked what color she would be as a new addition to a crayon box Giz told Versus she would be pale purple. “It is the fire of red and calmness of blue combined and matured with life experiences.” As a person, Giz admits she likes to take risks and that she likes to do her job well. “I have a lot of tenacity and I never give up.” And, for things she cannot live without… the list is as intriguing as the woman herself….” My computer, my phone, my daughter’s first pair of shoes and the ring that was a gift from my father.”

“It is the fire of red and calmness of blue combined and matured with life experiences.”

Giz is known for her eye for detail, arresting color combinations and for the variety of her designs “Beauty starts with self confidence. If the woman is comfortable under her skin, she radiates. She knows where she stands and she has a style.” Her favorite designers include Roberto Cavalli - Valentino Garavani / Megan Fox Jennifer Aniston.

As for inspiration, Giz has an interesting perspective. “I am inspired by people on the street. I like to observe them. Their outfits, how they talk, how they walk… you can find out one’s lifestyle from their outfit styles, behaviors etc. Observing people has also helped me in SL.

Me volví más tranquila y más responsable. Ella también es la razón por la cual aferrarme a la vida”. Giz está muy orgullosa de su hija y reflexiona sobre los consejos que le daría a su yo más joven. “El amor es lo más importante. Vívelo intensamente. Encuentra personas que puedas amar. Descubre maneras de trabajar con personas que ames. En la vida todo se trata de hábitos. Si quieres hacer algo bueno, hazlo por costumbre. Cualesquiera que sean tus hábitos, esa será tu vida.

There are many beautiful sims in SL and so we thought we would share the top five sayings with you … 自業自得 “One’s act, one’s profit.” Equivalent to “you reap what you sow,” this one rings a bell especially if you are not working! 十人十色 “Ten men, ten colors.” The bottom line “different strokes for different folks” 起死 回生 “Wake from death and return to life.” Get up and Go for it and turn a desperate situation into a success – and yes… this is a dramatic way of saying it! 酔生夢死 “Drunken life, dreamy death.” Never just dream your life away, or spend all your time dreaming without accomplishing anything significant… and then, there is always…. Rum? 一期一会 “One life, one encounter.” Every encounter is a once-in-a-lifetime encounter – so treasure each one… life’s moments happen once…. 異体同心 “Different body, same mind.” Harmony of mind between two people – the way we should all live…

FROM HUBRICK’S LOUNGE • Cosplay

COSPLAY Text by Hubrick/Photography by Carley Benazzi

We could say that clothing define us, as from our dressing room emanates a long list of personal data. But, what happens when we break the social standard? Are we still ourselves? It is acceptable? In this issue of Versus we will enter into the cosplay sub-culture, an increasingly widespread trend that is found among urban tribes and role plays. The word cosplay is composed from the contraction of the English words “costume” and “play”. So we could define it more broadly as a “costume game”. What does this mean? In the same way that those who interpret alien behaviors to themselves, out of a theater stage or a movie set, could be considered role players; the “cosplayers” go a step further by also adopting the physical appearance of their favorite characters. These characters usually belong to a movie, TV series or more often to comic, anime or video games. In short, a cosplayer tries to recreate as faithfully as possible a fictitious character to whom he feels certain admiration to exhibit proudly in one of the many events that take place around the world for it. Just to mention some known examples we would have: the Comic-Con of San Diego, BlizzCon in California, Comiket in Japan, Japan Expo in France and Salón del Manga in Barcelona. This trend, which began to become popular in Japan during the 70s, has also had its echo in online communities. In fact there are many video games that allow us to disguise our character from others who originally do not belong to that specific video game, thus emerging the virtual cosplay. Of course Second Life is not an exception to the influence of this beautiful trend. Many of us have succumbed to the temptation to disguise our avatar for some kind of themed celebration. Some even wear a regularly like vampires, anime characters, comic book superheroes, etc. And although we do not realize that many times we look for a certain aesthetic in our style of dress that we base on someone we admire ... whether or not real. Obviously, we can not forget who deliberately disguises himself as a manga character, anime, comic, video game, etc. And even if you ignore it, maybe the hairstyle you are wearing is based on a character from Final Fantasy, Naruto or Vikings. To a greater or lesser extent and more or less puristically, we have all had some kind of contact with the cosplay. To a greater or lesser extent and more or less puristically, we have all had some kind of contact with the cosplay, consciously or not. Clothing defines us and gives us security. So when arrives those time in life that we only have problems, we will always have the option to change the scarf by a magic cloak which allows us to fly to evade or give us the strength to face what we owe. After all, we can be everything we aim to be.

Podríamos decir que la ropa nos define, pues de nuestro vestuario emana una larga lista de datos personales. ¿Pero qué ocurre cuando rompemos con el estándar social? ¿Seguimos siendo nosotros mismos? ¿Es aceptable? En este número de Versus entraremos dentro de la sub cultura del cosplay, una tendencia cada vez más extendida que se encuentra entre las tribus urbanas y los juegos de roles. La palabra cosplay viene de la contracción de las palabras en inglés “costume” y “play”. Por lo que podríamos definirlo más ampliamente como un “juego de disfraces”. ¿Qué significa esto? Del mismo modo que aquellos que interpretan comportamientos ajenos a ellos mismos fuera de un escenario de teatro o un plató de cine podríamos considerarlos jugadores de rol, los “cosplayers” van un paso más allá adoptando también la apariencia física de sus personajes favoritos. Estos personajes suelen pertenecer a alguna película, serie de televisión o más frecuentemente de cómic, anime o videojuegos. En definitiva, un cosplayer intenta recrear lo más fielmente posible un personaje ficticio hacia el que sienta cierta admiración para exhibirse orgulloso en alguno de los múltiples eventos que se realizan por todo el mundo para ello. Por citar algunos ejemplos conocidos tendríamos la Cómic-Con de San Diego, BlizzCon en California, Comiket en Japón, Japan Expo de Francia y Salón del Manga de Barcelona. Esta tendencia, que comenzó a popularizarse en Japón durante los años 70, también ha tenido su eco en las comunidades online. De hecho, son muchos los videojuegos que permiten disfrazar a nuestro personaje de otros que originalmente no pertenecen al mismo, surgiendo de este modo el cosplay virtual. Por supuesto Second Life no es una excepción a esta creciente tendencia. Muchos hemos sucumbido a la tentación de disfrazar nuestro avatar para algún tipo de celebración temática. Incluso algunos visten a diario como vampiros, personajes de anime, superhéroes de cómic, etc. Y aunque no nos damos cuenta muchas veces buscamos cierta estética en nuestro estilo de vestir que basamos en alguien a quien admiramos... sea o no real. Claro está no podemos olvidarnos de quien se disfraza deliberadamente de un personaje de manga, anime, cómic, videojuego, etc. Y aunque lo ignores, tal vez el peinado que llevas está basado en algún personaje de Final Fantasy, Naruto o Vikings. En mayor o menor medida y de forma más o menos purista, todos hemos tenido algún tipo de contacto con el cosplay. La ropa nos define y nos da seguridad. Así que cuando llegue el momento en que la vida solo nos da problemas siempre tendremos la opción de cambiar la bufanda por una capa que nos permita volar para evadirnos o nos de la fuerza de afrontar lo que debemos. Después de todo, podemos ser todo aquello que nos propongamos.

BEAUTY “Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.” (Judy Garland) Beauty in 2018 is highlights glow worthy skin, no fuss hair and bold make-up details that keep things beautiful and interesting! Many new skins coupled with mesh heads in SL make us appear more real --- those tragic washed out orange skin tones of yesteryear are long gone. Now there is a wide range of realistic complexion matching skins available on the grid. As for eye-make up you can choose everything from glittering to monotone eye shadow palettes that really make a statement by using a different color for your lid, crease and undereye. On the runway, look for bright, bold colors such as electric blue and ultraviolet. Rounded- edge cat eye flicks, bright colors and under liner play up your eyes while leaving everything else including your lips subtle. Find a rose shimmer texture and use it on lips, and cheeks! Bottom line keep the face make up simple and go with bolder eyeliner. And, for those with mesh heads, don’t forget to put on those great big lashes! By Sita Writer

FAST FASHION by Seashell Dench Tokyo, Japan. One of the most populated cities in the world. More than 13 million people share this beautiful space, where tradition and modernity live, hand in hand. One of the most inspirational cities for artists, like fashion designers. Japan, is the country of Issey Miyake, Comme des Garçons (Rei Kawakubo), Junya Watanabe, Kenzo Takada to name a few. Rei Kawakubo herself is considered one of the most influential people in the fashion scene around the word; she is now 75 years old. Where did they all get inspiration? Easy. From the streets of Tokyo; Japanese designers take the urban life of a non-stop buzzing city, where fashion starts in the streets to the catwalks of high couture. There are so many ways to define the many urban styles found here and to complicate matters, not everyone agrees on exactly what that style is. Pastel Goth, for instance, seems to have started around 2010, on Tumblr. Regular people just took photos on what they were wearing in the street and just posted on social media. Some people say we shouldn’t confuse Pastel Goth with “creepy cute”, “nu soft” or even “grunge” because it is more of a light emo/scene look. And then, we have Nu Goth, which is definitely a Gothic style but considered a sub-genre. To dress in any of these styles is not only a fashion statement, but also a way of life. Youngsters wearing Nu Goth are interested in all types of Art, Philosophy, Music, Religion; it’s a cultural lifestyle for them a way of expression. Another example of Japanese fashion is Neo Gal style. Neo Gal is part Tokyo, Part Americana and it all started in 1990. For this look, Japanese girls wear more “western” style clothing like ripped jeans, a lot of accessories with bling and bleached hair.

A Neo Gal doesn’t really care about what other people think of their style. They are trendsetters. Some peeps may or may not follow, a Neo Gal don’t care either way. The forerunner of the Neo Gal look is Alisa Ueno, you can follow her on Instagram here (https://www.instagram.com/alisaueno/?hl=en) Visual Kei is another street style from Tokyo, and in this case, it started in musicians and bands and has been around since 1980. It’s quite flamboyant, mixing a lot of make up with a completely androgynous look. It has become a sub-culture; Visual Kei is quite similar to the Glam Rock style in the west. Actually, all of these Japanese street styles are connected to a way of life, a way of thinking and consequently, a way of behaving socially. “Tell me what you wear...” There are so many Japanese street trends that we can’t name them all here. However, we can’t forget Harajuku - that is where this all started Harajuku is actually a place in Tokyo, around the Harajuku station, between Shinjuku and Shibuya - the central fashion hub for young people in the eighties. Some people say Harajuku is for the Japanese the same as Les Champs Elisées is to the French. In the eighties and nineties, young people started to dress in “Harajuku style”, named after the area that they hung out in. Harajuku came to be considered a fashion style, per se. The diversity of Tokyo, the fluidity of its streets and the variety of lifestyles has created many sub-genres of Japanese urban style that it’s almost impossible to name them all! Plus not everyone agrees on what defines this style. What is really beautiful to see is this diversity and urban fashion presenting itself as the starting point to some of the best runways in the world. Most of this happens in the old city of Edo - the former name of Tokyo, Japan - one of the most beautiful cities in the world!

Tokio, Japón. Una de las ciudades más pobladas del mundo. Más de 13 millones de personas comparten este hermoso espacio donde la tradición y la modernidad viven de la mano. Es una de las ciudades más inspiradoras para los artistas, como para los diseñadores de moda. Japón, el país de Issey Miyake, Comme des Garçons (Rei Kawakubo), Junya Watanabe, Kenzo Takada, solo por nombrar algunos. La propia Rei Kawakubo es considerada una de las personas más influyentes en la escena de la moda mundial. Ella tiene ahora 75 años. ¿En qué se inspiraron todos? Fácil, en las calles de Tokio, la vida urbana de una ciudad vibrante donde la moda comienza en las calles y es llevada después a las pasarelas por los diseñadores japoneses. Hay tantos estilos urbanos que no todos coinciden en cual es la definición exacta de cada uno de estos estilos. El Pastel Goth por ejemplo parece haber comenzado alrededor de 2010 en Tumblr. Personas normales que simplemente toman fotos de lo que se llevaba puesto en la calle y publican en las redes sociales. Algunas personas dicen que no debemos de confundir el Pastel Goth con “espeluznante lindo”, “no suave” o incluso “grunge”. Es más un look emo/scene liviano. Tenemos el Nu Goth que definitivamente es un estilo gótico pero considerado un subgénero. Vestirse con uno de estos estilos es, no sólo una declaración de moda, sino también una forma de vida. Los jóvenes que llevan el Nu Goth están interesados en un tipo de arte, filosofía, música, religión, es como un estilo de vida. Luego tenemos el estilo Neo Gal. Neo Gal es parte de Tokio, una parte americana que comenzó en 1990 hasta nuestros días cuando vemos una chica japonesa con un estilo más “occidental” como jeans rotos, mucho brillo y un cabello decolorado. A los seguidores del Neo Gal, realmente no les importa lo que otras personas piensen de su estilo, son innovadores o seguidores del mismo.

La precursora de este estilo es Alisa Ueno. Pueden seguirla en su Instagram (https://www. instagram.com/alisaueno/?hl=es) El Visual Key es otro estilo callejero que viene de Tokio y, en este caso, comenzó en los músicos y bandas desde 1980. Es bastante extravagante. Mezcla mucho el maquillaje con una apariencia muchas veces andrógina. Se ha convertido en una subcultura. El Visual Kei se asemeja al estilo occidental Glam Rock. En realidad, todos estos estilos de la calle japoneses están conectados a una forma de vida, una forma de pensar y, en consecuencia, una manera de comportarse socialmente. “Dime qué te pones... “. Hay tantas tendencias callejeras que no podemos nombrar todas aquí. Sin embargo, no podemos olvidar el Harajuku, que es donde comenzó todo. Harajuku es en realidad un lugar de Tokio, en los alrededores de la estación de Harajuku, entre Shinjuku y Shibuya, el centro neurálgico de la moda para los jóvenes de los años ochenta. Algunas personas dicen que el Harajuku es para los japoneses lo que Les Champs Elysées significa para los franceses. En los años ochenta y noventa, los jóvenes comenzaron a vestir al estilo “Harajuku”, porque solían estar por la zona y se los veía en la calle. Harajuku también se consideraba un estilo de moda. Sin embargo, la diversidad de la ciudad misma, la fluidez de las calles y los estilos de vida crearon tantos subgéneros de estilos urbanos japoneses que es casi imposible nombrarlos todos y tampoco todos están de acuerdo sobre qué es este o aquel estilo. Lo que resulta realmente increíble es observar esta diversidad donde la moda urbana se presenta como el punto de partida de las mejores pasarelas del mundo. La mayor parte de esto ocurre en la antigua ciudad de Edo, el antiguo nombre de Tokio, Japón, ¡una de las ciudades más bellas del mundo!

Design is a vital component to the enrichment of our everyday lives. Japan has a very rich history and culture of design, and I feel it is a very important dialogue to open and keep evolving. Issey Miyake This spring and summer journey with us into the ever-changing street scene of Japanese fashion trends. It is famous around the globe! The look ranges from over the top cute with pops of color to extreme darkness. It surprises and delights us with the unexpected. There are clothes that pull from ancient Japanese fairy tales and those that reflect a dark cyber future. And, then there is the “genderless” look of the Kawaii Boys and genderless Kei. This season’s treasure trove of trends includes everything from genderless Kei and Kawaii to outfits that play with proportions and textures that cast a shadowy dark tale that is mysterious and magical. Dramatic accessories and interesting make up with lavish tattoos make this look pop. Sweet and cute, dark and evocative, genderless and free spirited – the carefree fashion looks of Japanese street culture with its unexpected textiles and proportions are just begging to be worn!
