Double Threat Meme

Two online screen names you’ve had: Morgan Kincess (left) and Miyoko Magic (right)
Two video games you’ve played: Tekken but like really a lot! That's it
Two things you love about Second Life: the people from all around the world living in peace and harmony (look at the news RL, it's not like that in the real world) and all the amazing talents that I had the chance to meet. This wouldn't have been possible otherwise.
Two things you’ve done in Second Life: I'm 8 years old so I'll choose the 2 things I'm most proud of: 1) booking RL DJ Luke Slater for the 2nd anniversary of our record label Mote Evolver and 2) organising from scratch the album release party of RL DJ Cari Lekebusch "State of the Art"
Two things you still want to do in Second Life: I want to marry Rahpture for marketing reasons but he doesn't want to. And I want to take more mesh classes
Two things you like about your Second Life avatar: avatars* I dont know, they're cute and nice :)
Two of your Second Life Pet Peeves: disproportionate stretched photos on blogs or on vendors (they make my eyes bleed)! And people who send scam messages in groups.
Two things you did as a newb that you’re embarrassed of: well back in 2006 it was usual to ask for lindens to cyber... The word is not embarrassed but more disgusted. And the second is: I accidentally had virtual sex with a RL friend, we were running around exploring and jumping on all pose balls we found, and at some point we were doing it. We never spoke about it after that.
Two of your closest friends in Second Life: Mantis Oh and Hern Worsley
Two of the most beloved things in your inventory: the fans my alt makes, I never go out IRL without a fan so my alt is making them in SL. And the ring Rahpture offered me from Empyrean Forge (or my AVZ Mekahooves, ok that's 3 things)

Karma - Mean Comments Meme

Mean Comments Meme
1) Have you ever been subjected to mean comments online by strangers? 
One time I wanted to apply for my blog to a feed I discovered and thought was good. They emailed me that I wouldn't be added because their staff checked my pictures and they didn't meet their quality and styling standards.
2) How did you respond to them? 
I prefered not to respond that even I'm far from being a good SL photographer (I don't photoshop for example as I want to show things as they are, and I prefer to play with the lights than alter things), fashion photography was actually my RL job. I've been published in some famous RL fashion magazines several times. So I prefered to remain silent and think that those magazines payed me several times to shoot for them.
3) How did they make you feel?
First I was upset, then I had to raise an eyebrow after reading several times that email. It was in no way a constructive criticise. It was saying "your pictures are not good". So to learn to get better, I returned to check that feed, but then I saw stretched photos. I thought: aw, those are good pictures? Fine. I'm thankful they didn't accept me in the end!
4) Can you share some of the mean comments you’ve received and your thoughts on them? 
No, but being mean for me is saying: "your work is crap". Being constructive would be: "maybe you could improve your work if you did this or that. Let me know if I can advise or help you"
5) Have you ever ridiculed or negatively commented on someone else’s work, actions or personality with the intention to hurt them?
Once I was in a car with some artists and the driver put some music that wasn't my taste. So I said: can you stop this sh#t music please? He stopped the car, turned to me and said: I did this music... That's the day when I learned that if you don't like something, there is a way to say it.
But I never did it on purpose to hurt anyone. I think if you try to ridicule another person it's because you have an inferiority complex.

Dean and Miyoko in full existential talk

Miyoko: so I told Bety, darling can I borrow your boyfriend to make a photoshoot?
Dean: what did she say?
Miyoko: well she was like, ok but I want to be there for the shoot because sometimes he's a bit wild.
Dean: hahaha it's true that sometimes I detach all my clothes by accident...
Miyoko: aw you don't imagine how many times I landed in my shop naked because I accidentally deleted the floor of my skybox...
Dean: oh no! With customers inside?
Miyoko: yes of course...

A few years ago in SL, I received a notice from a shop called She Wants Revenge and there was a video link with it. The video was from the RL band She Wants Revenge and I immediately loved the band. The SL shop is long gone now and even if I found it was a bad idea to take the name of a RL band to name your SL brand, I was very thankful because I discovered one of my favorite bands in the world. Later I wrote to one of the member of the band and found out that he is also a photographer and that we use the same camera. He did that beautiful video with this camera (for the RL photographers out there it's a Canon 5D Mark II):

Pose Fair 2015 sneak preview


HelaMiyo sneak preview for Pose Fair 2015.
Pose Fair is certainly one of my favorite event of the year because it's the only moment when all the best pose makers get together. You find back your old friends and discover new ones. And every year I wish I didn't stop because having a sim with all pose makers in one place is really handy for pose lovers. So, mark your calendars: it starts the 11th April at 12am SLT. You can join Pose Fair 2015 subscriber at HelaMiyo mainstore if you want to stay updated.
See you there! Miyoko Magic
