Miss DolliVerse!

Big announcment from Doll Island. Announcing the first ever Miss DolliVerse contest!
-•°•❤ Miss DolliVerse Second Life 2008 ❤•°•-
☆ ☆ ☆The First SL Doll Island Pageant ☆ ☆ ☆
6pm to 8pm SL time on Friday October 3rd

The idea is to have a doll get-together with a focus. Humans have Miss Universe and all those pageants. We want one too!There are no categories: each doll gets judged on her merits. So Latex Rubber Dolls, mannequins, bimbo dolls, clockworks, blowups, sissy dollies, bondage dolls, suicide dolls, gothy dolls, gynoid pleasure dolls...all are welcome.The definition of a doll here means ‘not quite human’ or a human that is in appearance doll-like or enclosed within a latex cat suit or rubber outfits. Guys can come that day if they have a female chaperone or sponsor to stop them running about and doing that ‘marking their territory’ spraying thing.
♥♥♥How to Enter
Easy, show up at Doll Island during the time slot. Hangout on the castle veranda and when asked come along the catwalk to the judges. There you get a little time to impress them…say with a Talent (get your best animation or HUD on); doing a Q & A (bimbos study Miss South Carolina on YouTube); or just dazzling us with your distinctive dolly style and elegance! If possible it would be nice if you could then take a stand till the end if you can. Don’t worry too much, it’s not a super-serious thing.
The judges are looking for:
1) Overall Impression and Wow factor – that indefinable ‘X’ Factor
2) Attention to detail…do things fit well etc – Clothes and prims, AO etc
3) Original use of SL items or the creation of their own dolly items (having said that it’s a pageant so someone shouldn’t get too much credit for making something)
4) Role play skill…in RL this is ‘Personality and Talent’ but this is hard because the doll might just be a silent mannequin or a bondage doll unable to move because of the restrictive nature of their things. Still it may factor in.
First prize - $6000 worth of Latex fetish clothes from Kayliwulf Kingdom and unlimited fame of course
Second prize – Your choice of any Virtoys Lovedoll avatar worth up to $999
Third prize – totally awesome Doll Hypnosis case from Rygel & Lustbaby
Thanks to Asudem, Downy and Rygel for our prizes
The Idol style judging panel of three independent (at least 2 of the 3 are non-Doll Island resident) connoisseurs of dolly design will be at Doll Island from 6 to 8pm SL time on Friday October 3rd. Remember this is a DOLL ISLAND pageant so it might get a bit random.Force TPin'g a judge is not allowed and is grounds for immediate disqualification of course until the end of the pageant :p The judges will each score the dolls from 1 to 10. The doll with the highest cummul... ummm highest SCORE wins! Any appeals result go to Bane which means you might go in, but never come out. So think wisely if you wish to appeal.

Yes, I am very much planning on entering. Can you guess what kinda doll I'm going to enter as?

Shops and Dollhouses

First of all, big news. As you might or might not know, my friend Amea is having to leave SL for a bit. As you remember, she runs the shop Vexation, the place that sells teh cursed apple trees and cursed fountians. Well, since she is going to be gone a while, and since she didn't want to leave everyone that bought the fountian and tree water and appleless (the items are deliverd via a server on her land) she asked me to mind the shop while she's gone. I was very happy to say yes, since Amea is a very good friend. Any purchases people make for Vexation stuff will have the money go towards the shops rent. The goal is to have it basicly pay for itself til she gets back. Since I have to pay two rents now (my home at Kayliwuulf, and Vexation) I'm hoping alot of people buy trees and fountians. If not I can afford it, but it means buying less cool things to show off here.

Next up is the insanely cool dollhouse that Honoka made. It's avatar size, so you can actually live inside it. It's three floors total with a living room, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and attic. It comes fullf furnashed and yes the back opens to let you see inside it.

I got a chance to interview Honoka about it. Here's what she had to say.

Yora Vig: Well, first off thank you for the interview. I know your a busy dollmaker
Honoka Watanabe: You're more then welcome yora, anything for a friend.
Yora Vig smiles
Yora Vig: Second of all, I want to compliment you on hte house . It looks wonderful.
Yora Vig: Did it take you long to build?
Honoka Watanabe: Total build time was twenty hours i'd say I did it in a few large chuncks. First the basic frame, then I made up and applied textures then the furniture was addedYora Vig nods
Yora Vig: What made you decide to do a full size dollhouse?
Honoka Watanabe: Like most things it was just an idea that popped into my head suddenly, I figured since there's nearly nothing else like them on the market I'd put one together.
Yora Vig: Very true. I haven't ever seen anything like it in SL in this size
Yora Vig: I saw that there were two houses in the box when purchased. What was the desision behind that?
Honoka Watanabe: well I figured a cute little modle house would be a fun treat to have, display it give it as a gift to a kid AV show it off, things like that.
Yora Vig nods
Yora Vig: Any plans for future dollhouse items? More furnature to decorate it or other colors?
Honoka Watanabe: Well I always appricate feedback and would gladly do something on custom reques, be it schema, sizes, shapes, etc.
Yora Vig: And finally, how much does this wonderful house fun?
Honoka Watanabe: It's only 1.500L and comes fully furnished.
Yora Vig: Thank you for your time Honoka. Like I said, I adore your hose and I hope others do as well
Honoka Watanabe: You're welcome Yora and I'm happy to hear you're having fun with it.

Honoka's shop is located here. http://slurl.com/secondlife/SarahsOcean%203/219/156/29 She has a ton of doll related things there, from posing jars, to clothing. Checkl it out!

Island of dolls found!

I recently found what's quickly becoming one of my favorite places to hang out at in SL; Doll Island. http://slurl.com/secondlife/Bounty%20Resort/133/162/29/ This sim is something I have been looking for for a long time, and entire sim dedicated just to doll play, with a heaping helping of kinkiness. The owner Pzyche Demonia does a great job of making the sim feel fun. One word of warning to all men out there, it is a female AV sim only. So no Kens, only Barbies allowed ;)

Doll island covers the entire sim, and has lotsa fun places to visit/explore/play in. The first area you'll visit when you arrive is the Doll Village. This is where all the shops are located, and boy is there a lot of doll stuff there.

This is the only place on Doll Island where male AVs are allowed, so if you want to doll up a certain someone, anyone can shop here. And man is there a lot. There's a few doll freebies, skins, dresses, posing stand and cases and keys. A great place to look for doll stuff.

The next area you arrive at after leaving the village is the Shrine, the social area of the island. Every time I drop by, no mater what time it's been, someone is always there hanging out. There are seats and couches for people to sit on and doll boxes and stands for the various dollies on display. And everyone is always really friendly too.

Towering in the center of the island is the Castle. This is where most the really kinky stuff on the island happens. The dungeon, is there, as is the library, which is fulled with a lot of great doll stories.

Finally, the last major area of int rest is Area 52. This is where the dolls get made. There's all sorts of mad scientist thingies here and it looks oh so kinky.

I absolutely love Doll Island. I was totally blown away the first time I stopped by and half the people at the Shrine recognized me from this blog :) If you like being a doll, making dolls (Especially if you like making a doll. We need more doll makers!), or just like dolls at all, go here and check it out.

A Bouffant Buffet

First off, sorry it's been so long since I posted last. Between finals, the Labor Day holiday, and a bit of tragety in my family, I've been very busy in RL. But I'm going to try to get back in the habit of posting mre frequently from now on. I'm hoping a minimum of one post a week, most likely on Saturday or Sunday. But if I can I'll aim for more.

Now on to new buisness ;) A few anonomousposters have made a few requests. First one was a picture of me with green hair. That I can do. Though I still doin't know why anyone would want it. And to spice it up a bit, (and to show what an uber-geek I truly am) the picture also has me in my Green Lantern uniform I out together from latex I got from Kayliwulf.

I made this one because 1. I was a bit boared one day, and 2. I was thinking about hitting some of the clubs that hold contests. Some of them do best super-hero. BTW, the glowy lantern symble I made myself. Only the third or fourth thing I've really made in SL.

Next up, I wanted to tell the other poster that I'm not going to say that thing they want me to say. I don't know if it was supposed to be a cute thing, or if it was the mannequin virus part, but honestly, the whole thing is odd and a bit disrespectful. I mean, if it was true did you really want me to end up frying my computer with a virus? Odds are it was supposed to be a joke or something. But I'm not wanting to find out.

And last, here's another post on my hair I have.

First up is a style I've been wearing a bit lately. It's called Pippi, and it's from Tickled Pink. I'd include a SLurl, but the shop appeares to be under remodel right now.

Next is a style called Hukluban. It's a cool looking style. I'm just kicking myself since I don't remember where I got it from.

Next up, is the first of many I've gotten from Sinsation. This one is called Gwen, for obvious reasons. It looks like something strait from an Aurthurian myth.

Finally from Sinsation is a trio of dangerous looking styles. Any one of these would likely cause alot of problems if you tried to wear them in RL. First is Pinned

Next up is Spitfire. Don't worry, the safeties are on ;)

Finally is the Sweeney. And yes, it is named after the Demon Barber of Fleet Street ;)

The Sweeney and Spitfire can also be worn without the blades or guns if you want to sport a less dangerous style. But where's the fun in that?

When I said I had 30 to 40 styles, I wasn't kidding. I could keep doing these posts for a while longer. But I have a feeling mixing them up a bit might be better. Like throwing in something doll related. While I was doing the pictures for this, I remembered I got a Rainbow Bright hairstyle a while back. So here I am all Rainbowed out
