The Ode to Pumpkins...

En français plus bas

We wish to organize a contest for Pumpkin Town, our Halloween Town.

For more infos : http://pumpkin-town.blogspot.be/2016/08/pumpkin-town-2016.html

The objective of this competition is to create an image that will honor pumpkins in a Halloween environment.

This image can be created via Photoshop, Gimp, or 3d modeling tools like Blender, Maya, ... (composition). Second Life may of course be used. But a simple snapshot will not be enough. This snapshot has to be worked on, adding elements, other pictures,...

The winner will be named based on creativity, originality and aesthetics. Amaze us!
Many gifts will be offered to the winner, but although it is always fun to have gifts (we, too, love gifts), the objective of this competition is especially for the pleasure of creativity.

The winner will be chosen by a jury, all well know people of Second Life. So it will not be a public vote. This will avoid becoming a friends competition rather than art competition :)

The image should be uploaded to a Flickr group.

This announcement is for a pre-registration to see if we have enough participants. More information will come when we open Pumpkin Town (1 October 2016).

So show us your interest!


Nous souhaitons vous proposer un concours pour Pumpkin Town, le village d'Halloween de Pumpkin Town.

Pour plus d'infos : http://pumpkin-town.blogspot.be/2016/08/pumpkin-town-2016.html

L'objectif de ce concours est de créer une image qui mettra en honneur les potirons, dans un environnement Halloween.

Cette image pourra être créée via Photoshop, Gimp, ou encore des outils de modelisation 3d comme Blender, Maya,... (composition). Second Life pourra bien entendu être utilisé. Mais un simple snapshot ne suffira pas. Il faudra retravaillé cette photo, y rajouter des élements, marier plusieurs photos, images,...

Le gagnant sera nommé en fonction de la créativité, l'originalité et l'esthétique. Epoustouflez-nous!
Plusieurs cadeaux seront offerts au gagnant, mais, bien que cela fait toujours plaisirs les cadeaux (nous aussi, on adore les cadeaux), l'objectif de ce concours est surtout le plaisir de créer.

Le gagnant sera désigné par un jury, qui regroupera plusieurs personnalités dans Second Life. Donc, ce ne sera pas par un vote public. Ceci permettra d'éviter que cela devienne un concours d'amis plutôt qu'un concours artistique :)

L'image devra être uploadée dans un groupe flickr.

Cette annonce nous sert avant-tout pour une pré-inscription afin de vérifier si nous aurons assez de participants. Plus d'informations viendront quand nous ouvrirons Pumpkin Town (1er octobre 2016).

Donc montrez-nous votre intéret!

Pumpkin Town 2016....

Hey Hey!

Guess what? We are working on our favorite town: Pumpkin Town 7!

We got the sim. The village is slowly rezzing out of the ground. Monsters are waking up. Taylor Flanagan is currently building the dishes in which you will be served as foods to the inhabitants of Pumpkin Town.

We will post more information and various applications soon:
- For creators and designers of course;
- But also for people who would like to sponsor our event;
- And finally for bloggers-journalists.

We also want to organize a contest. You will need to create an image (using a 3D software or Photoshop, Gimp, etc ...). Pre-registration will be opened. So we can see if there are enough participants to organize it.

We are excited to be able to organize this event. Soooo excited ... you cannot imagine how excited we are!

We already want to thank Surreal Chung, who bought a new sim, and gave it a cute name, which we will reveal later ...


Hey hey !

Vous savez quoi ? Nous sommes occupées à travailler sur notre village préféré : Pumpkin Town ! Un village qui fêtera cette année ses 7 ans.

Nous avons la sim. Le village sort tout doucement du sol. Les monstres se réveillent. Et Taylor Flanagan est en train de construire les assiettes dans lesquelles vous servirez de nourritures aux habitants de Pumpkin Town.

Nous diffuserons bientôt plus d’informations. Et nos différentes applications :
- Pour les créateurs bien entendu ;
- Mais aussi pour les personnes qui souhaiteraient sponsoriser cet event ;
- Et enfin pour les blogueurs-journalistes.

Nous souhaitons également organiser un concours. Vous devrez créer une image (en vous aidant de logiciel 3D, de photoshop, Gimp, etc…). Une pré-inscription sera ouverte. Afin de voir si vous serez assez nombreux pour l’organiser.

Nous sommes excitées de pouvoir organiser cet évent. Mais excitée… vous n’imaginez pas ôôô combien nous le sommes !

Nous tenons déjà à remercier Surreal Chung, qui s’est procurée une toute nouvelle sim, et lui a donné un nom tout mignon, qui vous sera révélé plus tard...

Art in Hats, WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Art and fashion meet in hats. Good hats are art to wear and subsequently many artists love to create fantastic hats. Fashion designers often show an explosion of creativity in hats. Hats turn to fashion with the styling.

The basic idea of the exhibition is to bring designers, artists and photographers together in an art exhibition / sales event by presenting hats built by artists and fashion designers in combination with photos. The photos are meant to be an art shot.

Hats and images are to be sold or are given as freebies. One of a kind pieces are sold in an auction.
