What a night last night ... it has taken most of the day to get my self back together and get to writing this post about it. SingerGirl Mode rocked The Bird Cage to its foundations with an amazing set of anthems and the Sexy Sidekickers danced their heels off all night. SingerGirl went from Let Me Entertain You through Vogue, Lady Marmalade to its raining men and closing with We Are Family. It was an amazing show.
With a theme like "Be as Fabulous as you Dare!" and MzFelicia leading the way, how could it not be a great time? What a pleasure it was to collaborate with Leighton Marjoram and Bill Blight. The region performed at an excellent level; and, of course, the very best part was hanging out with our OSL family and grid-hopping friends. Much love to you all! (SingerGirl Mode)
We had a good turn out and was really nice to see some familiar family faces from OpenSim Life and some old friends from other grids and some new faces. It went by so quickly it felt like it only lasted 20 minutes but it lasted over an hour.
I asked some people there for some comments on the event for this post and Bill (grid owner) and Terri Tam TT (Sexy Sidekicker) obliged.
"The event went fabulous, quite the spectacle. OSL is very lucky to have the OaP community as part of it's family." ~nuff said (Bill)"
"It was my pleasure and honor to be apart of the Out and Proud Kick Off show at The Bird Cage. So many diverse people that I am proud to call family. SingerGirl and MzFelicia put on a wonderful show to bring all of us together for a night of fun and friendship. (TerriTT - Sexy Sidekicker)"
I am looking forward to doing another event soon at The Bird Cage, the ideas for the next show are already forming. The Mzfelicia performance was fun to do and everything worked for about 95% of the time and really that was only one animation not firing properly when we were all on the stage. With my screen looking like mission control getting to take pictures and videos was a little tricky but thankfully Selby Evans got some footage [here] which he kindly gave permission to use to create an edit. You can see my video edit below. unfortunately, I was unable to get any of the audio from the event so have used a track to do the edit which was a shame because SingerGirl changed some of the words to a few of the songs and it would have been nice to capture video and audio. Maybe next time.
Thank you, everyone, for being there and making the night fabulously amazing and bringing The Bird Cage to life. To close this post I will use the words of Terri Tam TT who sums up my aims with the Out and Proud community and why I call OpenSim Life grid my home and have the community regions over there. She said
"Everyone is different in their own way. So never be ashamed of who you are. Love yourself and don't worry about what others think. If they don't like you because of who you are, then it is their loss. Here in Out and Proud and OSL you are never judged and will always have a family here. Just be as FABULOUS as you can be!"
