“Carnival!” Epilog


A very special “Thank you!” again to Runway Cafe for organizing this amazing show, all the models who put so much effort into styling up, and BOSL’s DJ Sofia Diage for the fantastic hosting and music. As promised, here’s a few more pictures :)

My appologies already at this point that I didn’t get to finish up all the pictures I took of everybody – I took way too many but some unfortunately screwed up with the weird shadow bug SL likes to do :(

Hope you’ll get a good idea of how much fun we had during that weekend with the ones I do have though :D

Left is Jena Adder also known as “She who successfully controls the models’ flock” in Showtime. The leading picture above is Algezares Magic in “Bayou Belle” – I love the makeup she created to go along with the costume. Both truely looking fantastic!


Above dancing on the balconies is Michela Benazzi in “Coco mon Coeur”, Nxraven wearing “Miss Josephine”, Kellis Denimor in “Miss Leprechaun”, Locuala Madruga dancing in “La Chouette Du Paradis” **BLACK** and on the very right Suga Leakey in “My Darlin’ Valentine”.

Lefthand one more of DiamondGem Destiny with “Miss Dhalia” in red – she couldn’t have stopped any more fitting on her walk :D

My appologies for not having any picture of Alethia Bonham :( will try to see if I can get some magic to the ones I did catch, but it’s gonna take some photoshop magic cause too dark or really bad angles I caught :(

“Carnival!” at Runway Cafe

Algezares, DiamondGem, Locuala and Raven

Last Show February 10, 2013
at 1 PM SLT

Come by for the last of 3 Carnival shows tonight (or afternoon :D) at 1 PM SLT at Runway Cafe/137/24/1253 – you sure don’t want to miss this, Runway Cafe CEO Alix Abruzzo has done yet again a masterpiece on organization, and I feel so honored to give this show its “feathery samba girls flair” with deviousMind’s Carnival, Samba and Burlesque designs!

A special thanks to River Anwyl and Jena Adder for their great work with the models (and supplying a super easy list for me to send boxes out :D).

This show wouldn’t be the same if not for Sofia Diage from BOSL, who gives the happenings on stage the final touch with a perfect music choice of good moods and samba rhythms and her very charming voice as a hostess. (Needless to say, I am myseriously craving bananas ever since the first show took place!!)

And last but not least, thanks a million times to Nathalia Parisi for the fantastic stage design and for jumping in so short notice and picking up the challenge of this build. It turned out fabulous, as was to be expected!

But enough talking now, here are the first few of all the pictures I took during last nights Carnival show at Runway Cafe – more to come for sure, cause there’s more sitting on my HDD and I’m sure I’ll be snapping like crazy again tonight at 1PM :D

Locuala Madruga
Locuala Madruga just absolutely stunning from styling down to the perfect picture taking pose – love the addition of the mesh/sculpted (?) hands, too. Totally didn’t notice these up to doing the picture and wondering why the curve is so perfect :D

Federica Galtier
I didn’t even consider that orange would go with blonde up to seeing Federica Galtier with this fabulous styling! Thanks so much for that lesson, Federica!

And Ficceh shows us, that orchids are just the perfect tropical plants with her styling of “WildOrchid” in pink… apparently they grow between confetti, too ;)

DiamondGem Destiny
DiamondGem Destiny does her name full justice with this amazing makeup which she chose to go with “Showtime” in **CANARY**, as seen above :D

And then there’s of course the fantastic audience! Thank you all for coming out last night and making the street celebation a true celebration! I wish I had got more pictures of the costumes that were worn :)

The fantastic audience on Feb 9th 2013

The season of Carnival is upon us again, and Runway Cafe has teamed up with Chandra Meehan of !dM deviousMind to bring you another spectacular event! Showcasing exclusively the Mardi Gras, Carnival and Burlesque styles made famous by Chandra, we present you with an amazing fashion show/party in a mix of the world’s most famous street carnival parades of Brazil and New Orleans.

Our beautiful models will be styling some of the sexiest and most scandalous designs ever created in Second Life in this theme, combined with hot music, confetti, beads, and balloon while dancing the night away across two sims designed specifically for this three day event.

We strongly encourage the audience to come theme dressed and to bring their party hats and masks, as it’s certain to be a memorable event and you will enjoy it more if you feel immersed in the theme!

UPDATED: (*chanimations “La Burlesque” Photostage!

The important Stuff:

UPDATE for (*chanimations “La Burlesque” photostage is finished since last night with a few new textures, new menu options, some improvements for practical showtime use, and with urgently needed updated curtains! The above picture was taken with SL shadows, so there’s no new texture on the spotlights or any like that. What you see is the light falling through the glass ceiling :D

Now this is where I need your help:

Unfortunately it turns out now, that there’s trouble with the automated update script of version 2.0!

I distributed all purchases since October 2011 manually through marketplace and inworld – if you do have version 2.0 of the stage and the update did not reach you, please get in touch with me! (Inworld, comment to the blog post, Flickr mail, whatever else you can think of). For those who have the photostage since version 1.0, please rezz a copy of the old stage to receive the automated update or get in touch with me :)

Thank you very much in advance!

(*chanimations RELEASE NOTES

UPDATE 2.0 to 2.5
January 18, 2013

Added more textures and sculpted curtains

For the selections of seasons, you’ll find now 2 shades for Valentine’s Day and one Mardi Gras texture added. Also, not quite seasonal but pretty useful, a black-and-red striped wallpaper if you’re going for more of a BDSM theme in your building ;)

Due to request, we also filled up the dead space above stage and opened up the front more to give better view on what’s happening on stage. For functionality, you also have the backsides of curtain and screen see through, so you have a good idea of what’s happening in front of the curtain while you wait for your show to start.

The Runway in front of stage is added in separate linkset now, so you can take it out if you don’t want to use it :)

To go with more livelyness, we also replaced were the old curtains. Instead of normal squared prims are sculpties now, to give it an overall more airy feel and pick up the curves of the building better. Unfortunately with this change, the primcount raises slightly (5 PRIMS) – The new stats for counts are as follows:

“La Burlesque” Photostage is build on a basis of 40x40m, and with the dome approx. 20m height – it is packed in a rez-faux box (9 PRIMS) and rezzes in five parts:

• main building with 42 PRIMS,
• runway for stage with 8 PRIMS (optional),
• frontStairs to lead up to the runway with 3 PRIMS (optional),
• all special effects and lights 30 PRIMS and
• balcony at the entrance with 4 PRIMS (optional),
for a grand total of 87 PRIMS.
(+9 PRIMS rez-faux package at first rezz)

The stage menu was improved to include an option that will allow you to fade the front curtain in and out – this will come especially handy when you’re dealing with a big event and possible lag spikes that cause the animated curtain to act up or not function properly. With the new fade option you won’t need to worry anymore and can keep your show running without trouble :)

If you know anybody else who uses “La Burlesque”, please inform them about this update and to contact me if there’s trouble with getting their upgraded version :)

(*FetishCabaret SET 31 “UnCover”

“Ladies and Gentlemen – The Show beginns….. ”

Fetish Cabaret SET 31
by (*chanimations photography props and poses

It’s been a long journey of our FetishCabaret series since 2009, and with SET 31 we go back to the roots: Fetish and Cabaret at it’s best! So what better theme for the current season than this mysteriously masked beauty to lead you through carnival and whatever other masquerades and illusions you desire ;) You’ll find -UnCover- at (*chanimations mainstore as well as on the marketplace :)

-UnCover- set contains photography props and poses with the following properties:

10 POSES (no mod/no transfer):

• (*mask_stand
• (*mask_standTurned
• (*mask_standTurned (cover)
• (*mask_beauty
• (*mask_beauty (cover)
• (*mask_floorSit (open)
• (*mask_floorSit (cover)
• (*mask_floor (open)
• (*mask_floor (cover)
• (*mask_kneel (cover)

Rezz Optional:
(copy/no mod/no trans)

• (*chanimations – UnCover multiPosestand – 4 PRIMS
• (*chanimations – UnCover multiPoseball – 1 PRIM

All POSES are static and come with ‘copy’ permission so you can put them into
your posestands or make own poseball arrangements.

The pack includes the poses as single animations and in a multiPoseball/Posestand.
Posestand navigates you through the poses with arrow buttons.
The multiPoseball toggles the poses by using the pageUp/pageDown keys (works only
for the avatar sitting on it). Both respond to /1 show and /1 hide to turn them invisible.

PROPS (no mod/no copy):

(trans/no copy/no mod)
• (*chanimations – handMask oneSided **LATEX** (right hand)
• (*chanimations – FetishCabaret Cat o’ Nine Tails (left hand)

Attachments are without function and props only. Both come with ‘transfer’ setting so you can pass them to your model – or if you’re unsure they’ll give them back to you, rezz them instead and position them. The mask includes a root prim only resize script in case you need it larger/smaller to fit.


The hand mask prop is made of unrigged mesh – if you cannot see the item properly, please update your viewer!
Please take note that when rezzed and resized, prim cost will increase with higher size.
Have fun playing and seducing and keep in mind: “These eyes behind that mask can see you clearly.”

Here’s some pictures of the event with Clyde Barrow at Tempelhof Theater the other day :)

I will have to admit… Frank Sinatra is one of those big names out there that has always been enjoyable, but I’d call myself not a fan by all means – that being said, I’ve seen the most amazing performance two days ago at Tempelhof theater with Clyde Barrow entertaining “the Sinatra way”.

If you’re a fan or not, I’d totally recomment you to join his event group to witness him live in person one day :) secondlife:///app/group/e9375528-103e-3c5a-3096-129e14d53d3d/about

Also make sure to visit Tempelhof theater – the whole place just has a very powerful Berlin-after-war-rebuilt flair to it with a very continuous red line from build of sim, style of theater, style of entertainment, all the way to the style the girls have. (Will grab the actual coordinates in front of the door next time I am logged in SL, these put you a few steps to the side at the center square)

UPDATED: !dM deviousMind “ShowTime” **BLACK PEACOCK**

This is a medium update – none of the core costume pieces have changed, but everything got renamed to “ShowTime” and all ‘old fashioned’ scripts were swapped with a resize and stretch script that operates from root prim to reduce script runtimes. Remember, you still can delete the scripts out completely :) With this update, the feather boas have received a resize script as well.

With release of !dM “Lady Vayne” carnival costume, we borrowed two of those costume pieces (peacockTail and peacockRuffles) and added them into “ShowTime” as well – they just looked too fabulous with the diamond lingerie to pass!

Beyond, you will find appliers for Lolas Tango mesh breasts of our diamond lingerie and pasties :D Please take note, the appliers will work only for these and none of the older mesh/prim tits out there ;) Also new is a set of tassels to fit Lolas shape.

All vendors in the sim and marketplace listings have been updated with these additional pieces as well.
