I Love Rock n' Roll!

Not everyone knows it, but my homie Gavin McGinnis is the lead singer for a SL rock band with our buddies Ethan Kanahoe and CvC Criss. Their band name? The B.U.L.L.I.E.S. (short for Boys Upending Linden Labs In Every Sense). Aren't those boys so gosh darn clever?
My gf DreamAngel Larnia and I decided to show the boys some support at their last gig. Lemme tellya, there's nothin' like standing in line with a buncha eager female fans to really make you feel like you've been sucked into a vortex of utter madness. I mean just look at what these women are doing to get Gavin's attention. Shameless!
Turns out I got just as super excited as everyone else. ZOMG it's Gavin! Yaaaaayyy! Hee hee.
What happens when 2 girls show up in the same outfit?
Fashion can be a dangerous business. We all thought this lady Scarlett XDemonia (on the left, scary face) was gonna throw down. I mean just check out her killer growl! But man, did she go down for the count. Turns out our tiny gf Rhia Janick had some secret WWF moves. Rhia actually earned herself the nickname "THE BUS." 'Cuz she took Scarlett's ass to school.
Such behavior from grown women. Ain't rock music grand?
Um, we don't know them.
The show was excellent. Check out Ethan wailin' on the drums. His boyish charm is always such a hit with the ladies. Just don't get him started about his drumsticks. Heh.
Here's CvC workin' the crowd on the keyboards. There's a reason he's known as ol' "Magic Fingers." On the keyboards, people! Geez, dirty minds.
Of course Gavin had all the women hootin' and a-hollerin'. Check out that one crazy fan trying to get up onstage on the right. Oh wait. That's me, hee hee.
In between sets, Dream and I were draped on speakers like stage decorations.
Afterwards we snuck backstage to hang with the band. As you can see, Gavin and Ethan were still totally pumped from the show. It's possible that our li'l Rhia got a bit too excited.
Rockers always have the best poses. Must be the fashion. Everyone copped the rock 'n roll 'tude: see how our gfs Violet and Gem were sooo ready for their close-ups here. And yup that's Rhia tiptoeing into the background.
The best part was at the end of the night, where I sneaked some alone time with the lead singer. You know for all his macho rock band stuff, Gavin is just a big teddy bear. But shhhh-shhh-shhh don't tell anyone.
Stay tuned as we find more excuses to show you everything relating to the crazy world of SL fashion. Next up: our wild + wacky adventures with . . . all things food!

A very special thanks to designer Minde Mills at WWI for creating the killer tough-girl chic that was so perfect for this shoot. Her WWI store is one of our go-tos for that sexy, take-no-shizz style. Minde -- well, you just know.

Many thanks to the lovely Wan Demina of DeminAtions (your MM board is such a find!), as well as the lovely creators at Striking Poses, S.LOVES, Water Sapphire, Kabuki Creations (all used throughout here) + other SL pose stores that offer such great free + $1L poses. Your work really lets us storyboard these shots in such an affordable way. A special thanks to Adorkable Poses for offering your basic facial emoter for free (Scarlett and Rhia couldn't have growled without you!)

Finally, a very warm hug to each of my friends DreamAngel Larnia, Margaux DuFaux, Rhia Janick, Scarlett XDemonia, Gem Henly, Violet Batriani and the B.U.L.L.I.E.S. boys Gavin McGinnis, Ethan Kanahoe and CvC Criss for all your help with this multi-locational shoot. I totally heart you guys for indulging all of my silly ideas. You are just awesome!!
