Madeleine + MichaMi = True!

It was really fun the other day when I discovered that the designer that created the swimsuit I wore in the RL cover that was mentioned in my earlier blog post/ flickr ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/madeleinedollinger/5532269278/),  actually was swedish as myself!

Her name is Milla Michanaga and she is the owner of MichaMi Designs! I own a lot of stuff from MichaMi and I wanted to share a few of this outfits with you here now!

Bare with the photographer that tried the best she could (me myself:))! The photoes are taken in location at the Second House Of Sweden, the swedish virtual embassy, opened by the Swedish Institute a few years ago. It was actually formally opened by the swedish RL foreign minister, Carl Bildt, at the time in an inworld ceremony! You can visit the virtual embassy here: Second House of Sweden, Swedish Institute (71, 212, 29) – General

Now lets take a look at some of the outfits in the MichaMi design line:

(Click the pics for a bigger version!)

This is a nice, sexy outfit named “Nina”, with a crop top and matching capris pants in a colour mix, white/ grey/ soft-pink!The outfit is available in a wide variety of colours.The textures are as always with MichaMi well-structured and realistic and it could be used in many occassions.

I´m wearing jewelry from Finesmith Design here, the “Heart” – necklace and earrings and the “Bliss” bracelet.  The shoes are the latest release from Bax, low boots in rose. The boots are available in a wide variety of colours and wearing – options.

The hair worn on this picture is from Little Heaven and it´s the style named “Hugh”! A short, tough, androgyn style!

The next outfit is a sexy dress in leather, here worn in the black version! To spice this up I chose  jewelry from Mandala, the “Lotus” – line! The hair is Truth – “Marcelle” and the boots are from the same Bax –  line as earlier but  this time in black!

To conclude I chose to show you a nice swim wear, the MichaMi “Soryaya” bikini line, here worn in the white version. The colour has light grey patterns which makes a nice contrast and softens the colour impressions in a good way. Finally we can see an example of the latest Bax-  boots line in pink! Ain´t that a pair of hot boots?? The sunglasses are the “Laura” – glasses from Kalnin and the hair is Truth, “Sandra”!

NEWS FLASH from LOOK Elite Models! – LOOK Elite made SL history!

I´m very happy to announce that the virtual model agency, LOOK Elite Models, this week, the 14th of March 2011, had their model, Miss Madeleine Dollinger, appearing on the first page cover of the RL magazine; STUFF Magazine and it´s March edition in Turkey! This was the result of a contract with the RL company STUFF Magazine and it´s division in Turkey and their representative in world, Mr Kaan Kuhn. STUFF Magazine is a worldwide gadget magazine in 27 different countries, covering 17 different languages. The tradition is to present a live model wearing a gadget, such as for example a mobile phone on the cover of the magazine each month. A product that later is reviewed inside. The well known SL photographer Cherie Parker was appointed responsible for the in world photography connected to the project.

This is, according to our sources, the first time ever that a professional model from Second Life is appearing in a project of this nature and with this orientation. A project where a RL-business intendure an extensive and lucrative financial package of agreements with a modeling agency in SL in a cross-over between the real world and the virtual world of Second Life! An agreement where the model agency delivers a total solution for the customer and provide both a virtual model with extensive training and skills and also arranges contract by a photographer of the highest quality and collects the customer’s final product in a context.

The tradition of having a live model on the full cover of the STUFF Magazine has been broken and a virtual model now did appear there for the first time ever! It is a very positive time mark and a proof that the trade and business world of the virtual world Second Life now slowly are becoming a real actor even in the RL economy in various ways.

It´s needless to say I’m very, very happy that this model is trained and a part of LOOK Elite Models. Congrats and well done Madeleine!

I will close this message by sending my warm appreciation to all of the staff members in LOOK Elite; the COO Kay Fairey, the Head Model Bety Dudek, the Coordinator Laura18 Streeter and the Academy Director Bourbon Zenovka, for each in different ways participating in bringing this amazing contract and event to reality!
