A big part of fashion in Second Life is poses which can involve several areas from fashion photographs right onto the catwalk.   If you are like me, you probably have poses scattered throughout your inventory making it difficult to find the right poses for the right occassion.  I finally threw my hands up and said “enough.”  So I went on a search to find the perfect vehicle which will give me the versatility I needed, at an affordable price, and didn’t require that I was a scripting genuis in order to operate it .  I tried out a few until I hit pay dirt – Tillie’s Posing Stand – created by Tillie Ariantho.   Tillie Ariantho wears many hats in the fashion world.  She is not only a wonderful photographer (Tillie Ariantho’s Flickr page), models herself, has her own blog called Tillie’s Things of Second Life and her own store called Tillie’s Store, where you can purchase this posestand.  So if anyone knew what was needed, surely she would.  I wasn’t disappointed!

The Make-A-Wish Foundation® grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. The organization began in 1980 with one wish to a little 7-year-old boy with leukemia.  His dream was to become a police offer, and through the amazing efforts of others they made his dream come true.  He was sworn in as the first honorary patrolman in Arizona’s Department of Safety.  Little Chris enjoyed a helicopter ride, a custom made police uniform, and a set of motorcycle wings for passing the motorcycle proficiency test.  Sadly Chris passed away on May 3, 1980 but his legacy lives on by inspiring others to grant wishes that provide hope, strength, and joy to children and their families.

I personally have had the pleasure of working with the Make-A-Wish Foundation® in real life.  The network of volunteers and their dedication is remarkable.  The organization has grown tremendously over the last 28 years all thanks to many generous donations.  Please join your fellow SL™ residents as they come together to raise money and awareness for this wonderful cause.

All are invited to the SL™ Celebrity Auction to benefit Make-A-Wish Foundation®.  It will be held this Sunday, December 28th from 1pm until 5pm in the Patch Thibaud Auditorium.  21 Celebrities will be auctioned off for a wonderful cause.
