The Living End
The ever boldy expressive magazine from the 50s, 'The Living End', in this issue has again an amazing lineup full of (porn)stars and downright sexy models. Since Spirit is so good at presenting her material in a concise way, I am going to raid her flickr description for quotes, or at least the summary.
" In this Issue:
Special Appearance by: Kron Ray
Fashion features provided by: DRBC, Knockers and Irrie's Dollhouse (most available in Retroville.)"
As Spirit said, Tatiana Easterwood in all her retro glory
So you see already great reasons to check out the issue: those reasons have names, and you see previews of the high quality photoshots they have been in, right here.
And that's just a fraction of the great experience, Retroville-style, that this magazines provides. With this month's 'theme' exploring a darker side with gripping results.
Seddy is a naughty girl! What a surprise!
Again I show to you a couple shots in the pristine perfection provided (watch me alliterate!) by plurime prizewinner photographer Spirit Eleonara, but the clever wordplay and professional work by Hard Rust with the layout is an unmissable element of what makes this production so stylish, different, and perfectly themed.
Margie is looking for some dick in this issue. No, really.
Speaking of theme: as I had the chance to say about a previous issue, it's a fun exercise in style to play with the framework of the 50s era, but the humour and attitude of The Living End, of course are the ones from our time and age.
What Hard and Spirit always meant with this project, is to give people something different and fun to do, and they assembled a fantastic material for it. One of the most beautiful and characteristic sims you can find in the destination guide of SL, Retroville is a place to roleplay at, a place to take photos and shoot movies (I had the pleasure to wreak havoc in the streets just earlier this week for a production), but that of course doesn't mean that it wants to exclude or chase off the casual visitor. In fact, more and more often you can see in Hard's notices in group, the invite to join the fun at the parties there, with no strict dress code.
Timeless beauty, Zuby Gloom
It IS more fun if you try to live the setting a bit, and there are many excellent shopping opportunities on the premises, but just don't miss out on the entertainmente and the beauty of the location because you "don't know how to do the 50s".
And there is not one chance, but THREE to join the Retroville fun this weekend. Because yes, it's been nine, yes NINE years since the inception of Hard Alley, Second Life's Original Sin, and now Retroville.
