Radioactive Super Massive Supernova!

We'll I'll start out with the obvious: we rocketh socketh! And for May I'd like to say we really took off! Oh my goodness, what a show!! 73 people on sim! All the excitement, all the exclaimation marks! And the moon was just the first stop..

Underneath the city lights.. there is a whole new
bunch of more lights. Just saying! ;)
And it's been the month where our 2011 show opener classic has returned, but all polished up with all the new gadgets and tricks 2014 has to offer! Thanks to the mighty M-trinity of mesh, mocaps and movers - how wonderful changes in SL can be. :D

This one is for you, Chopsy, for keeping the place running successfully all these years! <3

So to prepare the audience for what was about to swoop over them like a Lady Garden Tornado, our lovely Minxettes Rina, Diawa, Gal, Chopsy, myself, Honey, Miwa, Rug and SexyS (lower pic from left to right) swang their hips and ass(ett)es to Christina Aguilera's "Show Me How You Burlesque"!

LGC shows you how to Burlesque!
If you missed it, don't be sad. It will return some time or another. ;) Oh, not to forget the fact that it all was filmed on top! There couldn't have been a better day for this. Thank you so much!

Right after this old time classic opened the curtain for one of Lady Garden's new time classics! I'm saying this cause no other than SexyS Quintessa from Guerilla Burlesque joined our force to beam the Minxettes up to outer space and pull some of her long-time-experience tricks out her sleeves. Glad to have you with us, S <3 (I'll still battle you with bones some time, don't think you're off the hook there..)

No Black Hole is Super Massive Enough with that one!
Out of her infinite collection of avatars (you wouldn't believe she turned into a toaster throwing burnt toasts at me!!), she pulled the one most fitting to rock Muse's "Super Massive Black Hole" this evening and kept us with mouth open. Way to go S, you made ME speechless. Now that's an achievement!

The hole was thaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat wide, and wider even!
None of the non-glowy Ones ever passed Bouncer S...
Oh I did mention, there is a video of all this amazingness, right? Bear with me. We'll get there.

Next one up was another whole new level of awesome.. and probably the first time full nakies on stage but I'm pretty sure nobody noticed that due to the very skillful and entrancing distraction of ribbon particles. So Gal & Rug rock..rugged their way through "True Colors" by Artists Against Bullying. Goosebump Factor x10. Seriously.

Mandalas have never been better..
Minimal Dresscode - check.
This would also be a befitting moment again to mention that there is the most fantastic video clip capturing this! If you're good readers and bear with me, you'll get the candy, I promise!

Even the Hippies back then didn't see those colors.
Nacked alone no acid-flash makes!
Focus your view on the spirals.. now repeat after me: "Give me all your Lindens"
Anybody wondered why they were on 0 L$ after the show?
The blue was just the beginning..
Funny thing is, I didn't see half of the final particles from being all entranced stuck-up-with-my-nose on these 4. Thanks to video, I eventually figured out what that blue stuff was on this screenshot - I initially thought it was an SL glitch while picture editing!

So again, Ladies, in all formality: You made me speechless.. AGAIN. (This is gonna be one Chandra-silent show at this rate!) Thanks for the awesomeness, who doesn't love to give inspiration if THAT is the outcome! :D

Now next one up must have been a Second Life Burlesque first.. least best I can tell!

Once the curtain opened, we were surprised by the full tiny splendor that is the Miwa - and invited to an a capella version of Ruth Wallis's "Soft As A Kitten" sung with the most charming Mexican accent tied in by Miwa herself.

The wild part hunted all those feathers, I'm sure!
The size is just for distraction to wrap all in a sense of safety..

Many many claps and cheers for this performance, little soft Tiger-Kitten! Glad we caught this one on video too, it all turned out great <3

And well sooner or later I had to drag my ass back out there too so well behold, here it comes!

So many more free spots..
I was going to do something different but turns out the sudden pull of inspiration made sure I got thoroughly distracted on the main mission and took a little de-tour. And well I am rather happy about that!

On a side note, I learned that there is a 38 attachments limit on an SL avatar.. who would have figured :P So here's the final on-the-limit outfit for "Mata Hari" by Noblesse Oblige. Click to enlarge if you want to count for yourself ;)

Lakshmi wasn't gonna share the lotus, but guess who won the dance battle..
Some will dance, Some will die. The cosmos said so.
So this turned out a very mythology heavy interpretation of the song, picking up on the exotic spell Mata Hari had likely put on her audience once back then. Even if it's not really clear what the truth behind her myth really is. Look up history on that one, it's rather interesting. ;)

Something with that sunbathing doesn't appear to be working..
So going from one historical legend to another one of a different sorts, next one up on stage was nobody less than Ellie Chriss. Those of you following Burlesque in SL for a while will know her from Ellie's Burlesque and Beautiful Freaks back in the days, those of you who don't will get to know her, be sure of that! With "Radioactive" by Imagine Dragon she clearly came to stay (or at least last a few decades as all radiocative stuff does).

Reclaiming stage? Do what it takes! A little acid rain and nuclear fallout makes
sure none other will try to get it back. That one fights dirty, beware.

Plotting world domination?
I'll leave the Fan-Girling to Chops for her next post (we all know, she does it way better than me anyhow), BUT, I am still thrilled to see you with us, Ellie. It's great to see you keeping the passion of performing after all these many years, I really hope this stays and you'll keep us company for a long time! :)

(Oh and you kinda signed up until all the acid mess on stage is de-toxed, anyhow, now. Just saying!)

Only happy when it rains? We'll see.
So once all the poisonous stuff was hastily wiped off stage, we were right in for another lesson right from "The Madame" herself. Chopsy brought a whole class-room with her to ensure proper attention while playing the "Facts Of Life" out of her Black Box Recorder.

You! You! You! and You!
Each in one corner of the room until you learn to pay attention.
And oh she did it so well!

I would copy the whole set of emotes in here but well, I don't want to look like the teacher's pet who took the extra thorough notes during class. However, I'm pretty sure the boys learned a lot of valuable and important things this time around, and wouldn't they be fools to not come back for next lesson. ;)

Lesson #01 - Always dress proper for Class.
Lesson #02 - Only if you follow Rule #01
you're prepared to properly undress in class.
Any more questions? Or did I make my point clear..
That being said, stop panicking about faders, silly! You handled the situation JUST fine. ;) And thanks for bringing back one of my definite favorite sets of yours, loved the revamp polish-up it got - how good this ended up on video! (Oh yes, the ever tempting video dangeling like the carrot in front of the donkey... keep following me, my brave and hungry readers!) 

Since things get quite heated up these days at the Lady Garden, we did put our utmost attention into safety measures of course (and Mary needs a detox from time to time as well). So it should be no surprise when the curtain opened for a glance into our very own E.R. where the girls get  sedated and the patrons get drugged.. um.. I mean... okay well I mean we have this AWESOME nurse Rina to take care of all emergencies. *nods nods*

Sure it's no longer hurting? ;)
With Bon Jovi's "Bad Medicine" she raced and swirled over the white tiles and in the hurry lost her top even - see THAT is dedication! All for the best and fastest service you'll ever find in any cabaret building on the grid. But do not fred, if she poked you with the anesthesia then there is a video you can watch to recap the events of the night!

Alright, who wants to come play doctor?
Slowly it dawn on us why Healthcare is such a heatedly debated issue..

Sadly all things come to an end eventually, and so we went from white to bright in true "I've seen the light!" style. Our divine Diawa showed it to us, with mesmerizing voice repeating "Bow down before the One you serve..." *chandra's eyes turn all glassy as she feels the almighty pull on her mind forcing the body to walk into the voice's direction - straight past Diawa to the real source (sorry Di, but it's TRENT, damnit)*

"The small spotlight isn't enough for E.R.", they said..
So with the stadium bam only a Diawa can whip out her pocket, the night reached one last climax with Nine Inch Nails "Head Like A Hole" and well.. her pocket stadium light show. Watch the video, seriously. These lights look SO real it's absolutely fantastic and I am still all entranced. She got herself backup support from SexyS and Chopsy, but don't ask me who is who they all look the same to me at this point (but who really cares, DAMN, those lights......)

"I got a stadium in my pocket, biaaatch!"
*glances left and right* "Hopefully nobody notices I don't HAVE a pocket..."

Well so it looks like you did make it to the very end of this quite lenghty re-cap of a spectacular show. Did the carrot get you there, or did you walk all by yourself? ;)

This would be the time to say a massive big THANK YOU to Daemion for capturing the whole show on video for us to ever drool about and dwell in memories.. We truely appreciate that you braved the lag and captured a piece of LGC history in motion for us!

See the VIDEO - finally! 

You so deserve it! <3

Thanks all for being part of this amazing venture called Lady Garden, and supporting us every month again with either your presence, your talent, your tips or just by being you.

Love and kisses,
