"LISP Bazaar"

Written by ShaiLi Alex & Photography by Brie Wonder

LISP Bazaar is a magnificent decorations and furniture store, tastefully created by Pandora Popstar. The store is composed of several rooms of decorated furniture that are ideal for all tastes, and excellent for people who appreciate the little details that always give a touch of charm and elegance. Each creation has something very special; a certain charm that makes us want to buy the whole store. Each decoration seems a work of art; unique, vivid colors that give harmony to the environment. Sitting for an interview, Pandora gave me more details about her personal life and the creation of LISP Bazaar. Read along and enjoy.

"Country club living at its finest"
Sim Review | Page 208
Written by Sensuous Soulstar & Photography by Brie Wonder

Luxury. Class. Immaculate living. Words that most equate with wealth and fortune. Yet, what if you could have these things without having the wealth? What if you could live in luxury without belonging to the upper echelon, but instead live with them? And what if you could do all of these things at some of the most reasonable prices in Second Life®?

"Lunamaruna: Dr. Seuss meets Van Gogh"
Interesting Sims | Page 224
Written by Sensuous Soulstar & Photography by Annough Lykin

The creatively ingenious writer known as Dr. Seuss once surmised: “I like nonsense; it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope, which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.” And while this piece isn’t dedicated to Dr. Seuss, it is a salute to fantasy, to looking through the wrong end of a telescope and creating greatness. It is a salute to the creative geniuses that think beyond two-dimensional worlds and use their imagination, immense talent and creativity to bring to life a world of fantasy, a world of fun, and a world that brings a smile to everyone who passes.

"Music by Quanah: a teleport to euphoria"
Music Review | Page 270
Written by Jesika Contepomi & Photography by Paola Tauber

Quanah, known only by his first name, has taken the Second Life® live music scene by storm. Recently, some of the AVENUE staff and I had the amazing privilege to be in attendance at his debut show at The Village's Club Graffiti, and I must say, you honestly couldn't help but be mesmerized by his talent.

"Inside the mind of Iono Allen"
Media Mojo | Page 284
Written by Sensuous Soulstar & Photography by Tillie Ariantho

He is a man who needs no introduction. His work speaks for itself. He creates from his inspirations and turns art and installations into leading characters in his film. He is Iono Allen. To call him just a machinamator would be an understatement. He is a visionary who manages to turn art into a character in his film, whose only lines are the images that create stories in the viewer. Join AVENUE as we take a moment to explore the mind behind such astounding films as “Birth,” “A Question of Honor,” and his latest film, “The Red Zone.”

"Evangelista: the revival of the true supermodel"
Cover Story | Page 34
Written by Sensuous Soulstar & Photography by Annough Lykin

“The 90s were the dawn of the term ‘supermodel.’ The 80s had Gia [Carangi] and we have some now, but nothing like when we could all catch Cindy Crawford on MTV's House of Style or Style with Elisa Kentch on CNN. The 90s were the dawn of the Victoria Secret Angels, and a time when Linda Evangelista (hence the name “Evangelista”) said ‘I won't get out of bed for less than $10,000 a day.’ The goal of my company is not just shoes or skins, but to bring back that supermodel status when models names were as common as famous actresses’. Evangelista’s modeling schools and city replicate the supermodels’ lifestyle and era that was the decade of the supermodel. That’s what Evangelista is all about: real life fashion and being as close to a real life model as one can get.”

"Moda Elegante For The Senses"
Designer Collection | Page 102
Written by Augusta Carver & Photography by Annough Lykin

When shopping at Jador Fashion, there is an attraction to the photographs of the many gorgeous designs inside gold frames hanging along every wall. The stone pillars and huge archways that lead one through each section give the feeling of stepping right into Italy. The warm and regal atmosphere, along with the beautiful clothing are truly inspiring. Ziamela Loon, the mind behind fashion store, Jador, has found her creative niche and expresses it through each and every detail of her work. In a world where fashion moves at such a rapid pace, it makes it hard to keep up with the latest trends and styles. Yet, Ziamela does a great job of creating her own trends and continuously pushing the envelope. Recently, Ziamela spoke with AVENUE about her time in Second Life® as a fashion designer.
