About Eddi: I am a four-year resident in Second Life and have several interests, one of which is fashion and modeling. I am a dual citizen of the United States and the United Kingdom, and reside in Florida. I maintain one of Second Life’s largest independent blogs at http://eddihaskell.blogspot.com/
I am a very interest in photography, I was selected as one of eight photographers to participate in the main exhibition for SL’s Fifth Anniversary on Orange Island in June 2008. My photography has appeared in SL Illustrated, VR Style, Metaverse Messenger, Opulent, and other publications, and I have a gallery in Second Life.
I am very proud of my fundraising activities in Second Life and has raised over three million Linden for various charities to date. In addition, I have been interviewed twice on BBC Radio Five’s worldwide Pods and Blogs program speaking about various Second life issues. I also am a wedding minister in Second Life, and have officiated at over 100 marriages.
Goals: I want to spend more time in Second Life raising funds for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, an organziation which I have not yet had time to support in fundraising. Fashion Events are a great way to build awareness and also to raise money for needed founds for some very good causes.
Experience: Co-founder, H and W Models. Agency model for Deluxe and JM Models, and runway experience as an independent. I have appeared in articles and advertising in BOSL, Second Style, SL Illustrated, VR Style, and other publications.
Most Embarrasing Moment in SL: When I was having a romantic encounter with my partner and typed chat into a Group IM for a wedding that was going on at the same time. You really have to pay careful attention to open IM windows.
Modeling Achievements: I have appeared in events for Subversion Menswear, Get Butch, Blaze, Hardwear, Shai, Barefoot, and other companies. I have also appeared in articles and advertising in BOSL, Second Style, SL Illustrated, VR Style, and other publications.
