The Journey Home @ Nitroglobus Hall


work by Ini

The works are hanging on the walls now, the first exhibition I organized on my own, in my new gallery - The Hall (Nitroglobus Hall). The opening party is scheduled (this Friday, the 15th of January) and I marketed it as much as I could in the various social media. 

The opening party will start at 1 pm SLT (= 22 hrs Amsterdam/9 pm London time).
Music by DJ Khaz Rotaru
Place: Nitroglobus Hall

I am happy and proud to host Ini's exhibition 'The Journey Home'. This girl is so talented, and moreover a dear friend of me and of my beloved partner Nitro.

Ini's art is always surprising, unique, true and with deep emotions. 
This exhibition is about the journey home, whatever and wherever that home is; a real house, or a city, a country, or the end of the line, i.e. death...or love. 
We are all always travelling, coz after all life itself is a journey.

Aren't we all travelling in life to find a home, whatever, where ever 
and with whom that may be?

MINA's Cecilia & a BDR winter outfit


Since ages I wrote a post about fashion. Yeah ^-^
Wearing some of the awesome BDR items that were in Cameron's 22nd December folder: the destroyed Jeans Stone, which are a layer for my Maitreya Lara avi. Yeah soo cool.
The lovely knitted BDR sweater is called Random Cold Day Sweater and comes in many warm colors, I opted for the grey one coz that fits so well with my new boots. 

This weekend my friend Kooky visited me and she was looking awesome as usual, wearing these J's Studded Long boots in red. I had to have them. I bought the grey ones, other colors available are black and white. 
The boots come with a HUD that lets you change the height of the right and left boot separately. Cool boots. 

Last but not least is another super cool MINA hair called Cecilia. It's Mina's contribution to Shiny Shabby that started on the 20th December and will last till the 15th of January next year. For a change I am a red haired girlie.

Wish all my readers a wonderful, healthy, prosperous 2016 full of love and happiness. Cu next year!

Happy Holidays & a new gallery


Dear readers of my blog. I wish you all happy holidays & a wonderful, healthy & loving 2016.  

For me, the new year will bring a NEW gallery; The HALL (Nitroglobus Hall).
You can enter already, although you'll have to wait till next month, January 2016, when Ini Inaka will be the first artist to show brand new work at my gallery. Sooo proud she said yes. Cannot wait ;-)
At the moment I placed some of my work on the walls. 
You are welcome to come and explore.  

I am forever grateful to my dear friend Joa for his kind offer to have my new gallery at his sim. Hugs you tight my friend!

Every End has a New Beginning (Closing party @ Nitroglobus gallery)


Last Sunday, 6 December I organised a closing party @ Nitroglobus gallery. The gallery hosted many impressive exhibitions over the past 3,5 years and it hurted a lot to tear it all down.
However, since my beloved partner Nitro Fireguard passed away on 7 November, I couldn't afford to keep the sim/gallery and decided to close it.
Don't be sad, I will open a new place soon @ a dear friends sim. Will keep you all posted.

Last Sunday we celebrated all the good times with great music of DJ Ferdy and an impressive performance by SaveMe.

Thanks all for being there!

You will always be in my heart



On Saturday 7 November at 2.10 pm Paris time my beloved Partner Nitro Fireguard passed away.
Although I knew this was inevitable, it still was a shock. After all nobody wants to loose a loved one. The only redeeming thought is Nitro doesn't have to suffer these horrible pains anymore.


Nitro and I, we had 4 wonderful years together in Second Life. 
It all started when we met at the installation 'The Path' on 17 October 2011.
We flirted, fooled around, got partnered on Valentines day 2012 and started a gallery. 

We both worked very hard in/for the gallery, which we enjoyed a lot.
How bizarre that eggszackily 4 years later, even on the same day, Nitro made his own 3D mesh sculpture installation 'The Paths of Life'
, which opened on 17 October. 
I am truly happy he could be present at this opening party, enjoying the good spirit and the many artist friends attending that evening. It was his goodbye to SL.

Nitro loved art, he was a very creative person, always had been in RL and SL. Over the years his 3D mesh sculptures were getting better and better, and he gained name as a sculptor.
Most of his sculptures and installations (like the Maze) were shown at Nitroglobus

walking Nitro's maze

He exhibited his works alone or with others (who doesn't remember the exhibition 'Hidden Faces' he did together with Mistero Hifeng in January 2013).
Last but certainly not least, there were his sculptures in the main hall of Nitroglobus, as he always 'fitted' the gallery to the theme of the exhibitions by guest artists. That's what made Nitroglobus gallery a unique place.
So unreal to know this will never happen again. 

Second Life is empty without him and his always loving care for me. Now that you are gone sweetie I realize more and more how dear you were to me my soulmate!
Gros bisous mon cheri, may you rest in peace.

You will always be in my heart!
