CodeBastard Redgrave and the Boudoir Rouge
I’d been meaning to post this for a while but I’ve had a full plate lately and I’ve been a cranky-pants too :p but I’m over it now so back to blogging!
I had the good fortune of meeting Codie (a.k.a. CodeBastard Redgrave) early on in my SL existence. I could go on about how impressive her SL photography and art is, her coding skillz and just overall brainy-ness (is that even a word lol), her machinimacam and vids, the fact that she’s a content creator who can make avatar appearance things like eyes and skins and stuffs, and the fact that she was Avastar of 2007… but you know what? All of that pales in comparison to the gargantuan generosity, kindness, and warm-heartedness she exudes. She is hands-down one of the nicest and friendliest people you will EVER meet in SL. Ever.
Codie began an art/photgraphy project called Boudoir Rouge, and you can view the fruits of her labor thus far on her flickr set, which I’m extremely honored to be a part of. The set was meant to be a celebration of women in Second Life; in her own words, it is “an ode to all the beautiful, brilliant, sexy, geeky ladies of the metaverse. Pure avatar shots, in the most playful pinup style. Welcome to the Boudoir Rouge.”
It looks, however, that it may end up being much more than that. According to her blog, she’s looking into selling the series with the intention of donating most of the proceeds to charity for AIDS research and cancer research. It sounds like this is still very much in the early planning stages, though, so if you’ve any ideas on how to get this fundraiser project off the ground or know of some resources that can be useful in this undertaking, please don’t hesitate to speak up. 🙂
