Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new.
This week was a really tough week for me for various reasons, including a medical scare. So this week’s Red Solo Cup challenge is Strength.
Strength means many things to many people. For me, this week, strength was being able to smile and keep it together while faced with difficult situations. I faced many possible “break downs” this week, but managed to keep it under control for the benefit of others.
What does Strength mean to you?
I don’t usually join blog challenges (even though I started my own) because…well, because I see what other people do and I’m all like “OMG I’M NOT THAT GOOD!” But after 7 weeks, I’ve decided to try out the SL Disneybound challenge from Style Minions. They are seven weeks in so I’m now playing catch up. I skipped week one (Peter Pan) because I had too many ideas, I have to figure out just one to use! I’m also trying to use stuff I already have and not going out of my way to buy specific items for it so we’ll see how that goes…
Week Two: Ariel
Week Four: Snow White
Week Five: Dory
I know! I Know! I’m a day late and I’m sorry for those (one or two) that have been eagerly waiting for this week’s Red Solo Cup inspiration! This week was just soooooooooooooooooooooooo long. So when yesterday came, the only thing that was on my mind was Footloose! I think I listened to the song about a million times (ok maybe not a MILLION but a bunch) and I watched the end of Footloose (the 2011 version because it’s the only one on Netflix) a couple times because it’s just awesome and makes you feel like dancing! So if you haven’t figured it out yet, this week’s inspiration is FOOTLOOSE! I channeled my inner Kevin Bacon with my grey sweater, bleached jeans, and white hightops to get my dance on. I REALLY, REALLY can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!
There are a few events going on in SL at the moment (aren’t there always?) but this weekend, the fifth Fantasy Faire opens. Personally, I’ve never been but I hear it’s quite amazing, especially if you are into fantasy wear. Plus, it’s a Relay For Life event so it’s for a good cause too! Pin Me Down will be one of the vendors at the faire (sharing a stall with SAKIDE this year, so you can find them on the Lotus Valley Dream sim) with some exclusive makeups. The Warrior comes in a faded black, and faded white which is tintable you can make it any colour you want. Myst comes in six different layers so you wear it how you want. Because this is a RFL event, 100% of the purchase price will go to donations. Another Warrior makeup will be a hunt prize that goes on for the duration of the Faire.
Speaking of fairs, Kawaii Fair has already started and runs until the 26th (or 28th? Both dates are listed on the blog so I’m not sure). Kawaii is full of
nauseously adorably cute everything! Most of it isn’t my style but had to pick up this super cute Panda Tank Top from (R E D). It’s a panda! How can you not want it?!
Oh, one last thing, this week’s Red Solo Cup challenge is Austin Powers / 60’s British Invasion! I got inspired because someone on plurk mentioned that with LeLutka‘s Bouffant hair, I looked like a fembot from Austin Powers. So originally I wanted to take a picture with a bunch of girls, all with the same lingerie and hair but because of various issues, it ended up just being Aevalah and I. I think we would be some pretty damn hot fembots.
I can’t wait to see all your submissions in the Flickr group because I think this will be a real fun theme for everyone!!
I’ve been wanting to do this for a while and I have no idea if it will be successful or not but I’m proposing a new blogger challenge! I don’t know if “challenge” is the right word because this isn’t a mandatory thing that you have to do every week, I mean, it would be cool if you did but you don’t have to because I know how it is with blogging.
So here it is. Every Friday I’m going to post…something (see that fancy “Red Solo Cup” tab up there? That’s where the weeks challenge will be). It will be a feeling, a movie title, a quote, a song, a lyric, a colour, a place…WHATEVER. Anything that inspired me that week. All you have to do is interpret that however you want and take a beautiful picture (nudity allowed but as long as it’s tastefully moderate). Pretty simple, right? Each week, with the bloggers permission, I’m going to add my favourite picture of the week to the Red Solo Cup Challenge Page (that fancy tab up there, remember?).
I don’t know how long this challenge will last but as an added incentive, at the end of 4 weeks (so May 9th) I will pick my most favourite photo submitted to the Flickr group and that talented blogger will receive 1000$L from yours truly! So I think that covers everything…. If you have any questions, leave a comment and I’ll do my best to provide an answer!
So it’s Friday and the challenge starts now! The inspiration for this week is a Dave Matthews lyric from the song You & Me, “We’re gonna ride the blue all the way to the end of the world” This is one of my favourite songs by DMB and I’ve been sitting on this picture from the Neva River sim which I actually took while listening to this song.
So I hope you’ll join my challenge and have fun will doing it! Can’t wait to see your beautiful pictures!
