Community: Two Three Six Five

I thought I’d do something different from my ordinary fashion/home decor posts by highlighting an amazing community project that I think is pretty special.  Hopefully you have already heard of the Two Three Six Five blog project run by Trace Osterham, but in case you haven’t, I thought I’d post a bit of information about it here in hopes that you might participate!

Two Three Six Five is a “glimpse into the lives of 365 different Second Life residents around the world throughout the course of a year, and a literary model of the way their virtual and physical selves interact.”  The blog depends on one volunteer author per day who shares 365 words or less about any topic.  Two Three Six Five was inspired by the RL project, the3six5, and the original blog even acknowledges the SL version here.  How cool is that???

You don’t have to share anything especially private or special or spectacular, and you don’t have to be a SLebrity or receive any sort of special invitation to contribute.  Read the guidelines, sign up, and write!  It’s really that easy.  I posted my entry back in April, and if I can do it, you certainly can.

Do yourself a favor and check out the blog.  Even if you don’t contribute a post, link it to your blog, add it to your feed reader, keep up with the daily posts, and spread the word.  Below are several entries that really spoke to me, but, truly, every post on Two Three Six Five is special.  So, check it out!

The Anti-Crimson Tide

So I assembled this look with bits and pieces of things I absolutely love, and I really adored the finished product.  That is, until I realized that I look like something out of Tuscaloosa, Alabama.  Now I know you’re not all from Alabama or from the U.S. for that matter, but most people know that I’m VERY anti-Crimson Tide.  A quick trip to Hibbett Sporting Goods for sneakers a few days ago REALLY reinforced that for me.  So yeah, this look  is covered in Paul “Bear” Bryant, but let’s just ignore that, okay?

Cabaret

Bronson and I decided to challenge each other to think a bit outside of our normal blogging box.  If you know anything about me, you know that I have a particular style, and I’m not too ballsy about venturing outside of it.  Nothing wrong with that… I just know what I like.  But it’s always fun to try something new, and Bronson challenged me to try to pull of a cabaret look a la Liza Minnelli.  I posed my own challenge to him, which you can see on his blog over at (ir)regular guy.  And, trust me, he kicked my ass in this challenge.  But it was still fun, and I love the look I created.  So we both win!

Help Haiti: AC Inure Pumps

Aphrodite Outlander, of Aphrodite Creations, is such a dear friend of mine, and I have always admired her talent.  Knowing how sweet she is, I was not one bit surprised that she immediately started looking for ways to help the relief efforts in Haiti the very minute she could log into SL.  This same giving spirit is the very epitome of her character, and of course I wanted to support that giving spirit as much as I could.  She’s offering up these amazing silver Inure pumps, which come with three different heel options, for only L$299.  And 100% of the proceeds will go to benefit the Red Cross.  So please visit the Red Cross Relief for Haiti HQ at Scribble and do what you can to help the cause.  The HQ building contains a wide variety of items you can snag to help benefit the cause, and I urge you to be as generous as financially possible because every little bit helps.  *hugs*

At Last

There are few days in SL which will ever be exciting as this one.  After idolizing my hair king for what seems like ages, Truth Hawks has seen fit to bless me with my own hairstyle.  And maybe to him my name is just another name among the thousands.  But for me, this means so much more, and I am beyond elated and flattered to finally have the official >TRUTH< Stacie hairstyle.  Simply put, this hairstyle is sassy and a little messy and really fits me and my personality like a glove.  I think it’s safe to say that I couldn’t be any more in love with it.  Truly, thank you from the bottom of my heart, Truth.
