Dazzlers Dancers Machinima by Maddox DuPont
Our live machinima from Modavia’s POP ART 2010 fashion show which was opened by Dazzler Dancers was proved to be popular that we decided to invite girls back for a proper shoot, lag free. Filming machinima is never lag free I realized but from 5 takes we took on the day, I managed to piece this little video together. It was a great pleasure meeting girls again and I suggest that if you like this video to join their group and see them live. They are amazing! Set design and Machinima by Maddox DuPont. Complete looks shown here were provided by Modavia’s own Dhalia Joubert. Music: Scissor Sisters ~ Any Which Way. Enjoy!

I also created short video on Flickr so to capture the set I built for this show before it gets dismantled. I made few dance videos which will be published in few days. Turn HD on for better quality.

Most people who shop in Second Life do not read blogs. MADesigns Shapes are a great way to advertise your products as they provide the buyer with LM to your store, serve as a visual reference even if they do not buy the shape – which often leads to purchase, and are long lasting (“life span” of each shape is usually a minimum of 12 months).
Therefore, if you are a skin/fashion designer (big or small) and would like us to put together a special collection of shapes featuring your original creations, please contact Maddox DuPont and/or Thalia Jie (Thalia styles female shapes for KMADD).
Thalia and Maddox have 4 years experience in fashion and appearance. We can bring life to your wonderful creations and make them stand our among the rest.
We release new shapes and hair every couple of weeks, so if you would like to stay updated please join KMADD Enterprise Group upon arrival at KMADD. Free HAIR, eyes and special offers to MADesigns VIPs are just some of the benefits of being part of one of the largest groups in Second Life (over 17,000 members)

A Difference In Seasons
MODAVIA Productions with association with MAD Agency presents POP ART 2010
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
**** Modavia Productions Announces POPArt 2010 ****
December 5, 2010 – MODAVIA PRODUCTIONS, the fashion show and event management division of Modavia Fashion Marketing, today announced a new collaboration with MODERN GYPSY and MAD AGENCY. POPArt 2010 brings together leading designers and artists in an exploration and reinterpretation of the pop art movement of the late 1950’s, and early 60’s.
Characterized by themes and techniques drawn from popular mass culture such as advertising, comic books and mundane cultural objects, the pop art movement challenged tradition and in concept referred not as much to the art itself as to the attitudes that led to it.
The original idea for POPArt 2010 came, appropriately enough, from Micah Kanto, designer of the ever-edgy and mold breaking MODERN GYPSY couture brand. Micah has been pushing the boundaries of SL couture for some time and is recognized as one of the key players in the vanguard of new Avant-Garde creatives.
Designers participating in POPArt 2010 include:
CheerNo, Gasqhe, Kletva, Maven Haus, Miamai, Modern Gypsy, Peqe, The Secret Store, Swansong and sYs.
Invited artists include:
Dazzlers Inc, Del May, Gracie Kendal, Natsha Lemton, Sledge Roffo and Ub Yifu.
Also no slouch in the creative department, Maddox DuPont of MAD AGENCY has got to be one of the best set designers in the business. And his build for POPArt 2010 does not disappoint. It’s sleek, retro and trendy and a great backdrop to both the fashion and artwork.
NOTE: In order to keep lag to a minimum, audience members are required to wear the outfit, custom designed by Micah Kanto, which is enclosed in the invitation prim. We also recommend that the following Windlight settings be observed to maximize enjoyment of the event:
Thank you to Scarlett Niven for sponsoring outfits for our presenter and Fae Eriksen of Fishy Strawberry and Siddean Munro of SLink who dressed the dancers.
All runway designs from the event can be purchased at the POPArt 2010 boutique.
