excusez mon français Today is the opening of the grid wide Excuse My French Hunt which will run until July 17th. The designers participating in this event hail from various parts of the world and are unified by language, specifically…. well… French!

surréaliste cirque

surréaliste cirque

When I was little I wanted to join the circus…. not like…. run away and join the circus (my parents would surely have been invited to come see me) but I just wanted to be IN the circus. I had an adorable Shetland pony with the thickest most amazing flaxen mane that almost hit the ground… I would practice my circus tricks on her every day…. for certainly Ringling Brothers would call any day! Ringling Brothers never called, but I did end up riding on a mounted drill team when I got a little older, retired my pony (since my feet were inches above the ground – at this point I looked more clownish!) and got my first real sized horse.

This picture is attributed to my childhood dreams. Second Life is an amazing vehicle for breathing life into our dreams! That… coupled with the Funny Puppet Fair …. has brought my dream into existence… or into my virtual life anyway! 😛

Wooden Luv

The Funny Puppet Fair has had me thinking of all the songs I know that have the theme of puppets. I’ve been singing away to lyrics by Agent Ribbons, Emilie Autumn, Emma Wallace…then I remembered Happy Puppet by Natalie Merchant of 10,000 Maniacs….. I’ll admit I have played it four times in a row now (much to Gopu’s dismay * smirk *)

I created my dullard strung on a wire …. she is just a happy puppet dancing on a string… her hollow head, her marble eyes, her wooden hands and her metal jaw pins… all wait in limbo for the man who knows how to move her this way……

Take a listen… the video is below.

Coin Operated Girl

Today is the opening day of the Funny Puppet Fair on the Gold Nook sim and I must say the fabulous designers have outdone themselves! From cute and quirky to downright cool the Puppet Fair is bound to have something to put a giant smile on your face! I’ve been digging around in my bag of tricks I acquired and put together this fun image that dances on the edge of surreal. Love it!

The Funny Puppet Fair runs to June 17. Designer’s booths have exclusive items and in some cases a gift, and each designer has created an exclusive item for the 10L bazaar at the event. So get your marionette strings untangled and mannequin joints well greased, there is no better time than the present to get dolled up!

More awesomeness to come……

Xxxooo
