Coconut Bras and other Kitsch

Coconut Bras and other Kitsch

Two of the many things that make Florida the unique place it is, are tropical music and kitsch. You don’t see kitsch as much as you used to now that most people spend their money on T-shirts instead of the old florida inscribed souvenirs. Heck most people come here to see the House of the Mouse, not buy coconuts carved like monkey’s heads or seashells glued together to form animals. I guess even that guy lost his job when the economy tanked. I always kind of liked the coconut bra myself, they weren’t too comfy but boy nothing says “native” quite like that. My quirkiness in mind, you can imagine how surprised and thrilled I was when I found, like so many other pieces of Florida Americana trinkets, I just officially became a souvenir!

I thought I was pretty close to this iconic state when someone came out with the “cow chair” a few years ago, but I was disappointed when my dragon Draakje Daily told me it wasn’t specifically made for me. But this, this is ME! Recently Miss Virtual World Modeling Academy started handing out these wonderful “goody bags” with all sorts of cool information and gifty’s in them. As you know, any good model worth her weightless-ness in salt spends hours on a pose stand making sure all of her prims are adjusted and positioned to the nth position in case someone decides to perv them to check their measure as a model. So to make this “task” a little more fulfilling and enjoyable, MVWMA included a multiposition pose stand in the kit. But not just that! If you receive one of these “limited” items, the picture on the stand is…. wait for it…. ME! You get to stand on me! I can’t imagine how many times any one of you have been editing your prims and swearing and thinking, “This %$#*$^ would be perfect if I could just stand on Cao for a little while.” Well, lucky soon to be models and training to be models? You too can stand on a Cao for a little luck! (Who wouldn’t want a little luck of the Irish?) Heck, I bet my friend Peep takes the class just to get the stand. We’ve already had the debate which is better, bacon or a side of Cao in the morning. 😉

Take from? Would you like it any other way? Of course! All kidding aside, it is truly an honor for anyone to be recognized, no matter what they are doing. So thank you Frolic, BlackBarbie Bravin and all of you at MVWMA. I learned so much when I was there and I just adore you all! Thank you Natzuka Miliandrovic for taking the awesome picture, and Mila Tatham for making the outfit, because the thing to remember is, no person is an island, those who by some luck “get ahead,” well its doubtful you got there alone. So never think these awards are yours alone, they are for every single person who took the time to help you up along the way. The ones who let you “step on them” a little bit. They are the true winners. Just something to think about as we slide into the weekend.

As an aside, I am not a blogger for World Gothic Fair, so I don’t know too much about it, but I went nosing about a couple of days ago and picked up a few things to blog. World Goth Fair is an annual Second Life event, officially sanctioned by the folks at World Goth Day to benefit the Sophie Lancaster Foundation. Let’s work together to make some good come from the senseless death of Sophie Lancaster. Let’s focus on creating respect for and understanding of subcultures in our communities.

  1. OMG, Cao…where do I sign up????? LOL I nearly spat out my coffee reading this. Alas, I’m afraid I would only sign up for a modeling class if I was guaranteed to get to wear the coconut bra 😉

  2. Hi Chailin, in this post (second photo) there is a poster of “Miss Virtual World” where the model is wearing a red dress.
    Can you help me to find this dress? Is lovely…!
    Thankss

    1. I’m Caoimhe, but you can call me Cao. And of course I can tell you (since the model in the dress is me) 😉 The dress is L’Amour Fou from *SoliDea FoliEs* and if you click the logo of *SoliDea FoliEs* on the right side of the page it will send you the LM inworld for TP. ANNNNNNNNDDD You are in luck! Because right now the Moolto Hunt is going on and this dress is the gift that is hidden around the store (In Black) 😀 Good Luck! ❤

I'm done inconveniencing electrons, any thoughts? Come on, you know you have 'em, post them up here.
