First Generation cyberdivalive creations on sale @ SL locations

At the Blue Fusion, Desi Beatz and Nirma locations - all first generation cyberdivalive creations by rad Zabibha are on sale.

Price range is between L$ 1 and L$ 30.

This first generation is unique - flaws in creation and all - and will have SL/RL cultural value as rad develops and expands her business connections and designing skills.

Come one come all and get these items which are likely to become vintage items soon (sold at higher prices as the value of her items will come from them being "vintaged" and rare) as rad develops a new line of saris and skirts and duppattas and scarves and kurtas and veils - even jewelry. Look for the new line in late Fall 2007.

Putting some of my saris in Oryx Temple's International House of Style

And good news!

I will be placing three saris - 10 of each item - at the International House of Style with Oryx.

She takes a percentage of the sales for keeping the items on display there and we each donate 20 % each to Heifer's.

Of course all the money I make selling any of the items I design goes to DAMA marketing efforts as I've mentioned before.

Any overheads involved in making the apparel and in renting stores etc are covered by me.

more items sold in both Blue Fusion stall and at the Desi Beatz stall

Meanwhile, since July 15th - cyberdivalive creations has sold a few more pallus and sari outfits. Cyclone bought a skirt. I need to rework some of the pallus for scarf like or shawl-like wear.

A couple people are going to help me with my posters so that they look better.

Recruited MI Writer to make men's clothes from DA textures

I met MI Writer the other day. A large man with dreadlocks. We tried out a vegetable dye shirt/kurta on him. Looked great!

I asked him if he would join me in making clothes from Dastkar Andhra textures. He said he would try. We created a shirt/kurta with the vegetable dye print texture and I gifted it to Aiji Ducatillon who was having a difficult time wearing the sari I had gifted him earlier on...

rad Zabibha's latest creation - the pink mangalagiri sari outfit

come to cyberdivalive creations on SL and get one!

the RL fabric is from Dastkar Andhra - woven by weavers in rural South India.

"Living Art" on SL...

What does it mean to produce "live art" and "public art" on secondlife?

How might we circulate it at online/offline intersections?

Why on SL and not in galleries offline - of course because there is a juxtaposition and contradiction and statement - to be articulated...

Had an IM conversation with Oryx yesterday as my SL avi was dancing around in the Desibeatz club and then wandered into Blues fusion and then on to the Art competition thing that Morning IMed me to come to... Oryx's project sounds impressive and perhaps possible only in SL for an individual to carry it out by her/him self without massive amounts of institutional support...

How might this impact offline community practices of SL ers?

still to be seen.
