Fiesta Forever!

Fiesta Forever Beach HutHappy Saturday!  Completing the three beach hut stylings, my last Trompe Loeil Kiya summer shack is a tribute to the 80’s: bright colors, neon and party time.  Lionel Richie’s All Night Long was stuck in my head while decorating this awesome blend of everything fun and cool that represents summer cheer.

Prim Perfect is having a party!

Prim Perfect Party

Prim Perfect Party

Because we’ve got a lot to celebrate!

Later today we are relaunching Prim Perfect magazine. There’s a whole new look, and new features (as well as some old favourites).  You’ll get even more gorgeous eye candy from our photographers – and great articles from our writers!

New website

New website

And in addition, we are migrating our website from here at wordpress.com to a whole new site at www.primperfect.net. It’s still a wordpress site, but hosted by ourselves, which will make it easier for us to add a range of new features. We’ll be combining the old primperfect.net website with the blog to make for a smoother, more integrated feel. It’s where you’ll be able to read about Designing Worlds shows too, with links to our other media productions, and our other activities.

And if you’re a current subscriber to the blog, don’t worry – we’ll be transferring everyone across later today!

So – as we are a home and garden magazine (as well as so much more, we like to think!), we’ll be holding a launch, relaunch and celebration party from 2pm – 4pm today in the Prim Perfect Castle at the Home and Garden Expo.  We’ll see you there!

News of the First Alliez Award & the 2014 Relay Rockers Thank You Party

We have received the following press release from The Relay Rockers (one of the best known teams from Relay for Life of Second Life):

2014 Alliez Mysterio Award Invitation

2014 Alliez Mysterio Award Invitation

The Relay Rockers are planning to present an award in honor of their late co-founder Alliez Mysterio.

“To honor our friend and co-founder The Relay Rockers have established the Alliez Mysterio award. The award recognizes those people who have, like Alliez, made a lasting contribution to the world’s biggest virtual event, The Relay For Life of Second Life.”

Beginning this season the Rockers will present the Award to the Relayer(s) who they feel best exemplify Alliez’ dedication by their contribution to Relay.

The award is to be presented at the team’s Thank You party, Sunday August 24, 2014, with the party beginning at 3pm.

The award will be given to the person or persons who, in the opinion of the team’s award committee, have exhibited “Relentless Dedication” and have made an “Enduring Contribution” to the Relay For Life of Second Life. “

Alliez Mysterio came to Second Life in 2003. A pioneering virtual explorer Alliez saw the potential of the nascent private island sims and in 2005 her first sim, Rue d’Alliez opened. From that single island d’Alliez Estates spread over the grid, growing to more than 150 islands. She established a system of ownership and rentals that has provided a home to many residents of Second Life regardless of their virtual manifestations, lifestyles or interests. She made every effort to accommodate her tenants, was always there to address issues and was loved by all who came to know her.

In 2005 she joined with Trader Whiplash and Nuala Maracas and formed the team that became known as the Relay Rockers. From 2005 until breast cancer took her from us in 2013 Alliez was a steadfast supporter of both the Relay Rockers and Relay For Life of Second Life.

2014 Alliez Mysterio Award

2014 Alliez Mysterio Award

Alliez Mysterio left an indelible imprint on our virtual world and she is missed by one and all. This Award will honor both Alliez’s memory and the dedication of the awardees.

The Rockers, who celebrated ’10 Years Walking Strong’ this season finished with the highest possible fund raising level, Purple. They raised more than L$5 million through their signature events, Bid Me Bald and the Celebrate-Remember-Fight Back Top DJ Competition. They were also honoured during Relay weekend with the coveted “Returning Team Participation Award” as well as 1st place for The Inventive and Creative Fundraising Award and 2nd place for The Cancer Education Campsite Award.

The party, which will be held at Seasons dAlliez, will feature Gina Gracemount, a team supporter and Bid Me Bald ‘Victimteer’, performing live at 3pm and close with T1Radio’s Time Machine – the 60s, featuring Trader Whiplash. The 2014 Award Winner(s) will be announced at 4pm by Rockers Founding Captains Nuala Maracas & Trader Whiplash, 2014 Team Captain Ariel Stormcrow and Sue Peregrine, Alliez’s daughter and CEO of dAlliez Estates.”

Everyone is invited to attend and are asked to dress in semi-formal attire.

Designing Worlds learns all about Casa – now on the web!

Casa – the new initiative for homes and gardens – opens today – and you can see the Designing Worlds show about it on the web!

Created by Reven Rosca of PRIME and Meshopotamia, and Kaerri Rae of Kaerri launched Casa today, Friday 1st August 2014, with a collection of high end stores and designs in the Home and Garden market, as well as the work of several artists.

And there will be a Grand Opening Party on Saturday 2nd August at 2pm at Casa.

Make sure you watch the show too – where you can see what Cain Maven’s new home on Casa looks like furnished, according to some of the ideas discussed on the show, as we explore how we can define quality in a virtual market. And we learn more about mesh templates and how they can be used in building. And there are some thoughts on the gacha phenomenon too – which will be the subject of an article in the next issue of Prim Perfect – part of our exciting relaunch (of which more soon!).
