Blue Moon Annual Boobs Show

Now that I have your attention. 😛

BMBS 1Every year, Winnie (a cancer survivor), puts on a show and all the proceeds are donated to the American Cancer Society.

If you’ve never been to a show at Blue Moon, they have their own special flavor. 😀

They are a crazy lot, but I love them all bunches.

Unfortunately, cancer has hit more than just one of the crew, so the show has taken on even more meaning over the years.

This year, Winnie explained the history of the show to the capacity crowd.

After Winnie did her intro, Queenie was up first to entertain us.

And entertain us she did!

In such an – ahem – adult fashion that I can’t share my pics on this blog.

BMBS 2Rest assured, you missed an amazingly funny set.

It was Queenie’s first performance at Moons, and it was done in true Mooner style.

I believe the name of the song was ‘8 Miles Wide’ – I’ll let you look it for yourselves. 😀

Next up after Queenie was Sky Haramori, an SL comedienne as well as a cancer survivor.

She had some hilarious stories about her battle with cancer.

I am in awe of those who can find humor in such serious situations.

BMBS 3After Sky left us in stitches, ComCow did the intermission.

If you’ve never seen an intermission at Moons, you’re missing out.

I’m not sure I can describe it – it must be seen to be believed. 😛

Following ComCow was Beth, with a very information piece on Medical Misinformation.

She asked a series of questions regarding medical information ‘as seen on TV.’

It was a fun interactive bit, with a voting station for the audience and everything!

One lucky audience winner went home with a T-shirt prize.

(That’s what I was told, anyway – you never can tell with that sneaky lot!)

BMBS 4The theatre was as packed as I have ever seen it.

It’s always amazing to see how close knit the Moons community is.

The last act of the night was Winnie – or ‘Frankenwinnie’ as she’s known around this time of the year.

She dedicated her act to those who have fought cancer.

It was a lovely lyrical set (those are my favorite kind).

Decked out in pink (of course), she danced to one of my favorite songs – ‘This Woman’s Work’ by Kate Bush.

BMBS 5I first heard the song years ago in a movie, and it’s remained a favorite since.

If you came to the show, thank you for supporting Moons in it’s annual Boob show.

If you donated, thank you – from all of us who have had cancer touch our lives in some way.

I hope that someday we’ll talk about cancer like we do polio and smallpox.

Until then, I hope you and yours remain untouched by it.

Fantasy Faire Is Coming!

RFL PicFantasy Faire 2015 is just around the corner – only a week away!

I visited the Faire for the first time last year and sadly did not get to spend much time exploring.

I’ve learned a few things since then, so I’m hoping to be able to get there earlier and have an easier time wandering around. 🙂

There are always events in SL going on for various charities.

I have a soft spot for the Relay For Life events, because unfortunately, cancer is embedded in my family history.

I’ve lost more family members to it than I care to count, and I’ve endured a few scares myself.

Biopsies suck, just in case you were curious. 😦

As I was surfing through various feeds, I came across a link to a Flickr about RFL.

It’s Catalina Staheli’s Flickr, with pics of people’s reasons why they support RFL.

The photos (and their reasons) are very touching.

So if it wasn’t already on your ‘to-visit’ list, add Fantasy Faire.

You’ll see tons of amazing stuff and you’ll help support a worthy cause.

Calling All Anglophiles!!

LOTW NecklaceI recently joined the SL Blogger Support group – yay!!!

Yesterday I received a notice about an event called Leaf on the Wind.

Leaf on the Wind is a fundraising event that will be held to benefit Scarlet Chandrayaan, owner of Alouette, in hopes of helping make her wish come true of visiting London.

Scarlet (Amy) has been diagnosed with cancer, cancer that she fought off before.  It has returned and this time it’s worse.  The doctors have given her 2 years at the most if she just continues on with life as it is at the moment and makes the most of the time she has left.

The creators behind the event want to thank any and all of you who send Scarlet (Amy) well wishes and words of support, and for those of you who donate to this worthy cause.

As someone who has lost several family members to cancer, this event touched a nerve.

Plus, I’m an anglophile, so an ‘all things London’ event was too good to miss!

The sim has been set up and vendors are busily placed their London-themed items out.

There are tons of items – furniture, clothing, shoes, jewelry – you name it.  There are also some very cute gacha items.

I snagged the necklace you see in the first photo – a steal at only $99L! And the creator is graciously donating 100% of the proceeds to the fundraiser.

There are also various items to bid on in the auction.

There will be an Auction/Bid Board area for the duration of the event and on the last Saturday, the 31st of January, there will be a DJ event and winners of the auction prizes will be announced.  All auction items are special deals with values of L$1000 and upwards.

I had a great time wandering around and looking at the all the cool stuff.  I wish some of it was available in RL, as I have a family member who would be gaga over some of the items!

DonationsThe event opens to public on January 10, so be sure and check it out.

I found this guy wandering around asking for donations.

I can’t resist a man in a bow-tie, so asked if he would snap a quick pic with me.

While I was shopping, I picked up a darling dress from Anachron and just had to put it on immediately.

Before I knew it, it was my turn in the kissing booth.

Kissing BoothGuess who showed up?

His insistence on multiple selfies was annoying, but at least I look good in the dress from Anachron!

I paired it with some jewelry from League and some cute boots (which you unfortunately can’t see in this pic).

When you visit, be sure to keep an eye out for this guy!
