The month of February just flew by for me and I’d like to thank all who took part in the Walk a Mile in My Shoes Hunt! I’m completely thrilled with the response the hunt received and everyone, designers, bloggers and everyone who took the time to do a little hunting SL style, THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart!
I can’t believe February 2016 is here! It just seems like yesterday that this idea came to me, but it’s been a few months already!
I’d like the thank all the designers for taking time out of their busy Second Life to create an item for this hunt! And thanks to the hunters who are taking part…..sometimes the search is half the fun! Just don’t be like the song from U2 says…”I still haven’t found what I’m searching for!” 🙂
The month of January has been passing at the speed of light! Poof!! But, it does mean that a little more of the winter has passed and that we’re that much closer to the start of the Walk a Mile in My Shoes Hunt! I’ve been seeing some of the items for the hunt, and I must say it’s going to be well worth doing the rounds of the participating designers! I’ll be adding all the slurls and hints to the Hint page by January 31 so you can get right at it on the 1st!!
So, 2016 has arrived and the Walk a Mile in My Shoes Hunt is that much closer! I’m still welcoming designers who’d like to take a look back and see where they’ve been, and then translate it into some form of foot wear/accessory! I’m really excited to see where everyone has been!!
I’m going to be adding a page where the hunt hints will be for each stop in the hunt and the landmarks! I’m not saying you’ll know which stores you’re going to….just that you can get there from there! 🙂
I’ve been blogging Second Life fashion for over a year now and it’s been a lot of fun so far! The clothes, the poses, and yes….all the gorgeous shoes! Now, in my RL I’m not a shoe person….if it fits and works for what I need it for then it’s a good shoe! But in SL I’ve found a whole new appreciation for footwear!
I spend a lot of time in my blog pondering the human condition and what part each of plays in the world around us. It got me thinking that each and every one of us has a story to tell. At this moment in time we have a past that has brought us to this point in time! What have we done we’re proud of, what we regret and what is out of our control that we deal with every day! You know the saying, “Never judge a person until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes!”
So with that thought in mind I decided to plunge into organizing a hunt and dedicate it to the stories of some of the people around us! I’m inviting Second Life creators to make a pair of shoes, boots, sandals, stilettos, flats, work boots, pumps or whatever the case may be to represent their travels that brought them to where they are now! I’m also inviting creators that may feel that a bare foot with a foot accessory or a nail applier might tell their tale better! It need not be an exclusive as a re-textured shoe or boot is welcome also! It can be their journey in real life or Second Life…it’s all about what they feel shows who they are!
So this is a call to designers of Second Life to think back on their life and ponder what the biggest influence has been, create something from their heart and to make it available to hunters participating in the Walk a Mile in My Shoes Hunt!
If you’re interested, the Hunt will start February 1, 2016. There’s no cost for designers to join in and the cost of the hunt gift will be 10L$! You can track me down in-world for more information, I’m TinLiz Resident there! I’d love to hear from you!
I’ll be updating this blog as designers and bloggers join in so check back often! 🙂
