3rd Day of WoExodi Christmas and more Gifties

Baby it’s cold outside.  And Nicky Ree has just the thing to warm me up.  The winter white fur coat is a gift in the snowman near the Nicky Ree entrance.  The red Christmas ankle boots are another gift at Nicky Ree.  The black jeans are a group gift at Cool Beans that I blogged a few months ago.  They are a perfect fit!

The green Almost Christmas “Naughty & Nice” Nightie is another gift in store for Cool Beans group members.

Nicky Ree sub-o members also received the blue Snow Flake dress recently.  If you missed out on the dress check the sub-o history and have it redelivered.  The Gifted Poses were sent to the Frooti sub-o members yesterday.  These are great for everyone doing holiday pictures!

♫ ♬ ♪ ♩ On the 3rd day of Christmas Dick and Ryker gave to me…

a snakeskin leather belt and some holiday eyes! ♫ ♬ ♪ ♩

The 3rd gifts are out from WoE and Exodi.  The snakeskin leather Nomi belt (shown in the first picture) is the gift from WoE for today.  Exodi gives us a huge set of holiday eyes.  The ‘Look Into My’ eyes come in Festivus, Gingerbread, Northstar, Ornament, and Spirit.  The eyes come in large and small sizes and with or without veins.  I am wearing the large size with veins.

Nicky Ree

I have always adored the gowns from Nicky Ree for as long as I can remember. So I when I was told she had given the group a Christmas gift in the notices, I just had to show you.

There are two ways to wear it. One as a long gown as above and as a shorter cocktail dress as below. The ruffle on the shoulder can be removed if you prefer. To get the dress, simply teleport to the main store and click the group joiner just outside the store entrance. Join the group and search the notices.

I also wanted to remind you that Nicky has a couple of gorgeous free gowns available just inside and to the right of the entrance in little boxes on the floor infront of the main display for the gowns which have been reduced to 100L. These are really beautiful and elegant and are perfect if you are looking for a more understated look for the party season.

Artists Voice & Step Up with Nicky Ree

Today is the start of the Step up! Against Content Theft campaign in Second Life and also the Artists Voice campaign. For those who do not know what these campaigns are all about, they are an attempt to bring the subject of Content Theft strongly to the attention of Linden Labs via different ways. Step Up! are advocating no uploads for the whole of 5th November, where as Artists Voice is suggesting that there are no uploads, sales, purchases or blogging over a 48 hour period.

We at Fab Free have chosen to keep blogging to help support those amazing people who create and bring our world to life. We only support Original Content Creation and we always make sure to verify any creator we showcase on our blog.

But why should we all be bothered about content theft? Think about this.. the creators in SL put in unimaginable amounts of hard work, time, creativity and dedication into making our virtual world as beautiful, interesting and diverse as it is. Also, and even more importantly, alot of the creators depend on SL for their real life income or to top up their real life wages, so content theft is effectively having a very real impact on their real life situations. It is not just about Second Life… It is peoples real lives that are affected too.

Personally, I really don’t think anyone is at liberty to disrespect those artists that make a living from SL. Besides those that simply create for the pleasure of it, Second Life has given alot of people who cannot work, a chance to express themselves and use their talents in a way they cannot otherwise due to illness, disability or other reasons. We should be supporting them by buying their creations and exposing those who steal from these talented artists. There are those that may say SL is only a game.. but to some people IT IS a way of life and a way to make a living.

Nicky Ree is one of the most talented creators I know of in SL and she has released a freebie dress especially in support of this cause. If you go to the Nicky Ree outlet store in Deco, you will find the Summer Breeze Dress in a beautiful Lavender colour.. and really, when you can find such gorgeous creations from these generous creators, is there really any need to steal?

But what can we do to stamp out theft? Educate yourself. Teleport to stores and get to know your favourite designers work, even if you cannot buy anything right at that moment. Find out the names of the designers. Check their profiles for their stores as all content creators are proud of their creations and will most likely have landmarks to them in their picks. If you think you might have found stolen content, contact the creator who you think is being stolen from. Send them a notecard with a landmark and maybe a photograph of the item and they will investigate. Never confront the suspected thief yourself. Protect yourself by not wearing stolen items.

After all, there is plenty of free, dollarbie and low priced fabulousness out there that you don’t need to support content theft! Show our creators how much we appreciate them!
