"F.E.A.R. is the first region-wide design Yoon (Onyxxe) has attempted, as she notes in her profile and through her blog. While the name might sound as if it references a place that is intended to invoke a sense of dread – and is actually taken from a Stephen King novel (Doctor Sleep) – Yoon uses it in one of its two more familiar forms..."

"When I first visited A Favela, a parcel in Second Life decorated by Lotus Mastroianni and Fred Hamilton in a way that represents a typical Brazilian slum (actually, a typical slum in Rio de Janeiro), I thought it looked accurate enough to go beyond a simple display of stereotypes.

"Well hello on this fine day. Isn’t it a pretty one? Out there the sun is shining, there’s a light breeze, bees swoop the currents and make honey somewhere neither I, nor Winnie the Pooh can find it. And yet it feels wrong to be invested in such a pretty day. It feels wrong to enjoy it. Why? Because our black brothers and sisters continue to be struck down by the American police for no reason at all." Read more on the blog.

"As I was putting this outfit together, I felt it belonged in an outdoor setting. I think it’s the blouse, from Giz Seorn, and the sleeveless look along with the ruffle down the front that did it for me. I have to tell you that I’ve loved Giz Seorn’s fashion for many years (used to be GizzA) and Giz is one of the nicest and most generous creators in SL there is! Also, a few posts ago I discussed the Lelutka head. Well there’s more…" Read more on the blog.
