Saffia in Lanikal

Saffia in Lanikal

For the most recent edition of Meta makeover, Saffia wore a stylish dress from Neferia Abel’s new range – L’Abel.

The Ivalde sim has had a huge makeover itself!” says Saffia.  “And now, as well as offering her well-known retro designs, she’s producing a range of beautiful, strikingly contemporary designs.”

For the show, Saffia wore Lanikai, a verstile sheath dress, that can easily go from shopping to cocktails!  It is tailored with a square neckline, sculpted cape sleeves and straight pencil skirt.

“I loved the neckline and the texture with its rich colour and design,” says Saffia.  “It’s a beautiful, sophisticated look – and perfect for the show!”

And Saffia strongly recommends a visit to the new Ivalde sim

“There’s a whole range of interesting new designs,” she says, “and you’ll be seeing more of them on the show!”

For this episode, Saffia added a striking necklace and ear-rings designed by Gwen Carillon.

“I love Gwen’s jewellery,” says Saffia, “and this set, Midnight Fire, worked perfectly with my new dress!”

Today, Tuesday 24th March, we are back in our beautiful studio on Northpoint with a slightly unusual edition, as we are going to be looking over our past shows and sharing with you some of our favourite clips.  Some are beautiful, some are informative – and some are funny.  A few manage to be all three at the same time!

It’s also an opportunity for you to meet the full Meta Makeover team as they make a rare appearance in front of the cameras – including Aisling Sinclair, our new Advertising and Client Relations Manager.

Everyone on the team gets an opportunity to share favourite clips so, if you want to see again the Episode with the Milk, or the amazing fish we saw on the 7Seas fishing programme, or the one where we turned ourselves into a cookery programme with Kittie Munro of Kitstar Designs baking a cake, or where we met a certain famous pop group on the streets of London … don’t miss this week’s show!

The show starts at 2pm SLT, but you should be there by 1.30pm to make sure of getting a seat. And if you’re not in North America, remember SLT time has been affected by the resetting of the clocks!

We’ll see you there!

Saffia in Freydis

Saffia in Freydis

It was St Patrick’s Day – so clearly a green dress was called for!  Yet Saffia, seen here outside the giraffe zoo in Dublin, was a little different …

“The dress colour was actually teal,” confesses Saffia.  “But the material was just sumptuous, and the colour was a lovely deep blue green that worked very well, I thought.”

The dress, of course, was designed by Neferia Abel and came from the Ivalde store.  The design is Freydis, and Saffia wore the red version once before, when the show first came from the Galaxy.

Ivalde describes the dress as, “the little dress that is pure class and elegance!” and explains that it is “an impeccably cut, figure-hugging sheath that is the epitome of style with its clean lines! With a sweetheart neckline and sumptuous, blouson elbow-length sculptie sleeves, the bodice also features dramatic draping across the bosom for maximum impact! To emphasis a sleek silhouette, the skirt is pencil slim, tailored with textured darts that seamlessly blend with the top.”

There is exciting news from Ivalde at the moment, as they have hadd a major relaunch, with a whole new range called L’Abel.  As the website explains:
“Not only has the sim look changed, but so have the product lines! Neferia Abel introduces her new modern-day store, L`Abel. Innovative, current and trendy, L`Abel is all about the fashion of today and tomorrow!”

And you’ll have a chance to judge for yourself when you see the dress that Saffia is wearing in this week’s show!

Dublin prepares for the St Patrick Festival

The latest episode of Meta Makeover is now available on the Meta Makeover website at SLCN – and can also be downloaded free of charge from iTunes.

This was a fun programme to make but not, it must be confessed, wholly free of difficulties!

We chose to film St Patrick’s Day in Dublin … a very, very popular destination – so much so that it rapidly became clear that our original plan (to film the main interviews with Saffia in the Arlington Hotel on the banks of the Liffey, while Elrik interviewed people outside the perenially popular Blarney Stone pub) was untanable due to the horrendous lag – resulting in the fact that everyone apart from Elrik appeared to be clad in grey rather than green!

But the hugely helpful Dubliners helped us relocate to the quieter sims of Dublin2 – Shamrogue Island and Dublin3.  On Dublin 2, in the shadow of the giraffe only zoo (and you’ll find out why in the special viral video, discussed in the programme), Saffia interviews Ham Rambler, the Owner of Dublin and Emmie Fairymeadow, the Operations Manager.  And in Dublin 3, Elrik Merlin talks to Sitearm Madonna about the parades, the celebrations and the art exhibition.

“All the Dublin team were wonderful,” says Saffia, “giving up so much time to help us on their busiest day.  And Ham Rambler was great- he came to join us via a very dodgy connection in a Brazilian hotel!”

And you can see the show here – or download it from iTunes.

Today is a very special day – St Patrick’s Day, when people all over the world celebrate Ireland and the Irish – and Meta Makleover is no exception!  Our show is coming from Dublin, where Saffia will be talking to Ham Rambler, the owner of Dublin, and Emmie Fairymeadow, the organiser, all about Dublin and the week long St Patrick’s festival that is going on there.

Elrik Merlin will be out in the streets, meeting Dubliners like Sitearm Maddonna, Dublin Developer, and seeing for himself some of the events that are happening.

And you can join our very special SPatrick’s Day viewing party to watch the show at the Meta Makeover studios on Northpoint.  As always, there’s special gifts for everyone who comes to the studio – and today they have a St Patrick’s theme!  And you can also see our studio, specially decorated for St Patrick’s Day!

The show starts at 2pm SLT, but you should be there by 1.30pm to make sure of getting a seat.  And you’ll also be able to see a range of St Patrick’s Day goodies from top SL designers on display in our exhibition hall – and you’ll be able to buy it too!

We’ll see you there!

Saffia in Anja

Saffia in Anja

For our latest show, Saffia chose to wear Anja – a simple but stylish dress from Ivalde.

“I was looking for something simple but stylish,” says Saffia, “and Anja fit the bill.  But what clinched it for me was the colour – the gloriously rich purple.  Purple is my favourite colour, and this was a beautifully rich and warm shade!”

Ivalde’s own site describes the dress in these terms: “Anja is a form-fitting knee-length dress that proves sexy can be classy! Anja features a wide-square neckline, waist-cinching textured belt, and decorative accent stitching. With a figure-hugging pencil skirt, Anja turns up the heat, proving smart can still be dangerous!”
