Roots and Couture with a Touch of Punk Nouveau


A precautionary tale of SL Extortion


It is my opinion that actions from a “blogger” and aspiring “designer” like this is Second Life are not acceptable and amount to extortion.

You give me all your stuff for free or I will talk shit about you.

On September 9th I made a flickr post looking for photographers. www.flickr.com/photos/zibska/15001402197/ On the 13th I updated the Photographers wanted post with “Thank you for your replies, I will be contacting those of you who have been accepted in the next day or two. <3"

I got an overwhelming reply to the open application and diligently went thru each and every stream and blog giving consideration to present quality of work and/or future potential of all those who applied then got in touch with those who were accepted.

Paradox had blogged for me previously, I often give people who are just starting out a little help in pursuing their SL fashion dream, why not, I have a big closet. Unfortunately I expect actual progression in photo quality and an actual effort to be made. At the end of April, 2013, After several ignored review packs, or posts made after a given event had finished altogether, and way too many excuses, I dropped him from my photographers group.

September 9th I posted the Editorial Photographers who blog flickr post and on September 13th I closed applications and updated the post regarding contacting those accepted.

[11:23] Paradox Messmer: (Saved Wed Sep 17 05:24:24 2014)hello, remember how you told me you'd consider me for when your applications are open again for blogging? Well, I saw the form and I sent an application I was just wondering if you got it?
[11:23] Paradox Messmer: (Saved Wed Sep 17 05:43:47 2014)Btw, I adore your latest from Secret Affair! Amazing shirt and tentacles I'd wear that all the time
[11:34] Zib Scaggs: Hello Dox, yes I got your application. Your photos and styling were not what I was looking for and I will not be adding you to my photographers group. Thank you for applying though and wish you the best of success in your future SL endeavours. ~ Zib

[06:43] Paradox Messmer: (Saved Sat Sep 20 02:45:16 2014)is there any way I can get some review copies for PENUMBRA AW/fW ? I'm a blogger for this event. I know this is women's items, but the headpieces and hairs and other bits can be used by me in my styling. I want to do just one more post for PENUMBRA FW and I'd really love to feature you.
[06:43] Paradox Messmer: (Saved Sat Sep 20 02:50:46 2014)I'd like ot also note that I am a PENUMBRA model and am walking in 8 shows for this event and DJing for 3 of them.
[06:45] Zib Scaggs: No.

[05:27] Paradox Messmer: (Saved Sun Sep 21 04:08:46 2014)I think I'll tell everyone just what a mean person who's totally full of themselves you are
[05:27] Paradox Messmer: (Saved Sun Sep 21 04:09:24 2014)You used to be decent, going to the Rubb and hanging out inthe alternative scenes, now you're just a diva with the biggest ego and worst attitude toward their customers I've ever seen
[05:27] Paradox Messmer: (Saved Sun Sep 21 04:09:57 2014)Don't expect me to give you free advertising anymore

I feel it is important to any and all designers and event coordinators and/or those who set up/manage event blogger groups to be aware of his threats, these mannerisms are quite unacceptable.

The Instruments


The September round at the Instruments is Fall themed. My headpiece made perfect sense in my head. Birds, migrating, wind, flow, just squint, it might work.


We have two new releases for the round, the Poole headpiece, colour change via HUD features 15 colours for main and accent bits (the birds are black only, because). And below, the Cailin eyeshadow pack which includes 12 colours.
