“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”
– C.S. Lewis
I have a dream, and now that the Fashion Release of Sansar has happened, I want to share my dream with you, my blog readers.
My dream is to become a fashion designer for virtual worlds.
I first put my toe in the water back in the Cloud Party days, when I tried my hand at making clothing for male and female avatars in that virtual world, using a student version of Maya. I’m afraid I wasn’t very skilled at it, but I did teach myself enough to make a few garments. These pictures of my creations are from my now-closed blog, the Cloud Party Bugle:
That was back in 2012. When Yahoo! bought out Cloud Party and the virtual world closed its doors, I put that dream aside. I did fiddle with retexturing clothing in Second Life, but I never took it very seriously.
But when I first heard about Marvelous Designer, and saw what the software could do, I became excited. And now that Linden Lab has announced the integration of MD with Sansar, the time has finally come for me to pursue my dream in earnest.
So—before I even start making clothing—I want to declare the launch of my first (well, technically, second) virtual fashion brand!
RSVF stands for Ryan Schultz Virtual Fashion (it also stands for Ryan Schultz/Vanity Fair, my female “supermodel” alt which I have carried over from Second Life to Sansar). And I plan to document every step as I work my way up the learning curve, here on the Sansar Newsblog, just as I did back in the Cloud Party days.
I think it’s important to have dreams. And now is the time for me to follow mine. Please wish me luck!
