Winter Wonderland and What Fun Christmas Outfits We Wore…

Text By Netera Landar and  Photos by Talia Sunsong

Just say “Christmas!” and the angels can’t wait to teleport to the Holiday Shop & Hop. We will also tell you, from experience, that it’s no easy task to enter the sim and walk around no matter what hour you try. Then there’s Advent gifts and a month filled with Christmas outfits by our favorite fashion creators.

The Angels follow the updates on Seraphim, FIFTY5 Thursdays and FabFree, trying to stay on budget and trying to find a dress that Sandy says passes the dance test isn’t easy. We have learned, that some outfits look beautiful on, but will show breakage when your dance moves are more active.

Below are a few of Austin’s sets at Xanadu, Ann’s Coffee House, White Horse, Dandy’s and a Unicef benefit.

A December set at Xanadu. Austin looks great in his Winter suit. The angels are wearing Enchanted Joy Christmas Dress and Ibela Christmas hat.

At Xanadu. Loved the winter scene. Lovely joined us. Lovely, Talia, Sandy and I.

And How Shall We Celebrate?

Planning SL birthday parties is never easy. That’s because there are so many possibilities when it comes to themes. So when Austin mentioned Sandy and ZDiva’s birthday was coming up, Talia and I came up with some ideas.

ZDiva dancing on the buffet table.

We discussed with Austin everything from a Roaring 20s party, to PJ party, Bad Hair to Over the Hill. I settled on PJ as it wasn’t something we’d done in the past and I thought it would be cute to check out creative PJ ideas. I bought balloons, a Diva cake and Talia contributed pictures of Sandy and Z that were posted on easels with particle roses. Austin added fireworks that spelled out Happy Birthday Sandy and ZDiva.

Austin in his PJs ready for a pillow fight.

We sent out notices and invited everyone to Austin’s venue. Even had a pillow fight. I wasn’t too sure how that worked, though. Some animations are easier to operate than others.

Talia in her kimono-style nightgown. She looked beautiful!

Ann ready to soar with a birthday balloon.

Liam and Nida in their onesies. Sandy is ready for a pillow fight.

I’m wearing my unicorn baby doll PJs and bunny slippers. Like Sandy, I had my hair in curlers. Alex is wearing his flannel PJ bottoms.

We were happy to see friends join us in celebrating Sandy and ZDiva’s birthdays.

Austin not only bought the party decorations he bought the fireworks with a special message, as well. Adding his special touch made the evening very special for our friends.

–See you around the grid!

Neil Diamond Tribute at Dandy’s Place Nov. 21, 2020!!!

By Netera Landar

Every tribute Austin hosts focusing on the  music of Neil Diamond is special. Austin selects the order of the songs he wishes to sing. Sandy creates a gorgeous stage, selects our beautiful gowns for the set, and then there’s a rehearsal.

The photos taken by Talia Sunsong, an Austin Angel, were from the Nov. 21, 2020 tribute at Dandy’s Place. We wore  Legendaire’s Sia gown. I chose my Truth Joy updo and a JUMO’s Baylor Necklace, which was a lovely group gift.

A to Z Event Scores Big Time!!!

By Netera Landar

We’ve been so busy! There’s so much catching up to do. I wanted to start with the A to Z event presented in The Theatre at Dandy’s Place on Sunday, Nov. 29. What’s unique about this event was that Austin and ZDiva did a live dual-streaming set. They practiced for endless hours. Sandy built a New York-style night club as the set and we danced on champagne glasses dressed in our CC Ego leather jacket Maitreya and I had KC Becca Strappy Boots. My hairstyle is Truth Oasis.

Austin’s Second Kenny Rogers Tribute Held on Halloween!!!

Austin seated at the piano. Not one to just stand in front of a microphone during a tribute, he often plays the guitar and sometimes the piano.

By Netera Landar

Every tribute Austin hosts is special. With two years of Neil Diamond events featured in numerous venues, Austin felt it would be honorable to present the hits of the late Kenny Rogers.

Austin selected songs he loved from Kenny’s long list of hits. Songs he felt he could comfortably perform. Sandy put on her creative thinking cap and began creating a themed set for the event. She elected GGVG’s Fiona Dress – Pearl as the elegant gown for the Angels. The movement of the flexi skirt was magical. We wore our hair down or braided.

Joining Austin, aka Kenny Rogers, was ZDiva Sorbert for several songs. Her talent is professional and admired. The two compliment each other well. A big thank you, as always, to Liam Hoffen for setting up and controlling the stage lights and Kathyzog Destiny for filming the tribute.

The multi-level stage featured a grand piano, skeleton band, and the Angels!

Grace and elegance can best describe our gown.

Blue Ain’t Your Color…Oh, yes it is!!

By Netera Landar

Blue is a color, an emotion, and it’s the foundation of our world. It expresses how we feel at “this moment of time.” It is soothing or vibrant or the canvas for other colors. It’s the jeans we grab on a lazy Sunday morning.

When we’re dancing for Austin and entertaining the crowd, it is a vibrant statement of what we love about fashion. It’s a scene stealer as it immediately grabs the attention of others.

Whether it’s teal or powder blue, it will be remembered long after we step down from the stage to say goodnight to Austin’s fans.

Looking Pretty For Santa!!!

Talia looks gorgeous in this Christmas ensemble.

By Netera Landar

We love when Austin has Christmas sets. There are adorable Christmas-themed mini dresses to wear, topped with Santa hats, big bows and don’t forget particle stars. We love the decorations and everyone in a good mood. And let’s not forget this is the time for Advent calendars. I think Sandy beat us in that department this year.

We enjoyed a Toys For Tots fundraiser on Encore Escape (an open sim grid) and performing in Dandy’s ballroom on SL.

For New Year’s, Sandy and I wore Diamond Tears from Wild Orchid. Simply stunning during Austin’s Neil Diamond Tribute.

At Sweet Genesis, Talia, Austin, Sandy and Netera.

Netera wearing a lovely necklace which is a Jumo group gift. You can find it outside the store where the Advent calendar was.

At Dandy’s, we’re wearing Lurve’s Angel’s Song Formal gown with wings. Sandy in ivory, Talia in teal and Netera in Rose Petal. Netera is wearing Chain – Diana Hair.

Isn’t this an adorable scene?

Love the postcard background at Anne’s Coffee House.

Halloween Haunts, Broom Balancing And A Bolt of Magic

We’re wearing Believe Halloween Witch Hat, Liliana Dress Maitreya Experimental Halloween, Necklace Gold, Earrings.

Halloween in Second Life is a blast! There’s no end to the clever, sexy, adorable dresses and outfits you can choose from.  That often makes it difficult for us to choose what to wear for Austin’s sets. The Angels had a great time selecting a few costumes and helping others to enjoy the charm of the holiday.  Here’s a few pictures from Sheworthy, the Stage in Nashville, White Horse and Dandy’s.

Sandy looking bewitching at Austin’s Halloween gig at Sheworthy!

Time for some boot scootin!

By Netera Landar

There’s something real, vulnerable, and honest about country music. I think that’s why Austin is drawn to  it. It’s heard in the lyrics of a Kenny Rogers’ song depicting the life of a gambler, or Johnny Cash singing about the cold reality of living your life behind prison bars.

After Austin is singing his heart out about pretty little ladies, Sandy and Talia are wearing out their boots looking for western wear that’s down right adorable.

Austin sings his country favorites at The Stage on Nashville, Ann’s Coffee House, J&T Stables Tavern, White Horse Tavern and Sweet Genesis.
