Piper 5 Years in SL – Part 2

Welcome to the year 2009 and some more highlights from my 5 years in SL.

The majority of my time in 2009 was spent either playing Tiny Empires and hanging out with the friends I’d made through playing the game, or spending some quality time with my other group of friends at Moody’s Bar or I was busy organising and hosting fashion shows at Sascha’s Designs.  One of the good things about organising the shows was that I got to meet and work with some wonderful apparel designers like Bliss Couture, Son!a and Anubis Style to name a few.

However, after the fashion shows, I used to change back into casual attire and head off exploring SL again.  On my travels I found a great place to ski and ice skate.  The sim also had log cabins, so I rented one for a while.  I learnt how to fence with some Tiny Empire friends, which was good fun and my friend Lizzie and I used to hit the shops as well.  I have a photo of us in a store both wearing the same hair (Jackie by ETD).  It was very popular back then.

In 2009 I also went to a building class and then found a quiet sandbox in SL and had a go at building my own log cabin.  It wasn’t bad for a first attempt.  I still have a photo of the house somewhere in my extensive SL photo album.  However, as much as I enjoyed what I was doing, I really wanted to model.  I remember spending ages visiting modelling agencies and academies and getting information.  Then one day Sonia Jie invited me to a fashion show at the Glance HQ.  It was showcasing wedding gowns, some of them belonging to Sonia and there I met the wonderful Patty Cortes.

I spoke to Patty after the show and she gave me an application form.  Once I had submitted my application, a few weeks later, I was then contacted by Ari Ashmoot for an interview.  I was nervous and excited all at the same time.  I remember spending hours at Sascha’s store carefully choosing the right outfit to wear for my interview.  With regard to “what happened next”, well that falls into the year 2010, so I will spill the beans then.

I closed 2009 feeling that after nearly 2 years, I was starting to achieve a few things.  I had reached the rank of Princess in Tiny Empires, the fashion shows at Sascha’s were improving over time and I was having lots of fun organising them.  My sense of style was also improving as I found new stores and decided that I had outgrown “dancing for lindens” so I could buy things in SL.  I hope you’ve enjoyed reading Part 2, see you tomorrow for Part 3 of my 5 year’s in SL.

  1. I have that Bliss Couture dress! I remember that getting my regrave skin upgrade was huge! Hair was still quite a it behind what it is now but there are still many dresses that are still lovely that were made during that time.
    So enjoy reading this thank you for sharing Piper.
