SL13B – My Top 5 Exhibits

SL13B - Ebbe Linden Selfie

It’s been a week full of celebration at SL13B and the obvious highlight for me was taking this amazing selfie with Ebbe Linden – I was even papped here!
But as promised, here are my Top 5 Exhibits across the 17 regions. Although the entertainment draws to a close tonight, the exhibits will be open until Sunday 3rd of July, so there’s plenty of time to explore!

All images below are resized and cropped RAW shots straight from Second Life.

SL13B - The Automaton

1. The Automaton @ Stupendous Stage Left

Slightly biased since I am a stage manager for this particular stage but I am blown away everyday by this build, it’s sheer size compared to everything else is extraordinary and really must be seen in-world to be believed!

SL13B - One Love United

2. “One Love – United” Orlando Tribute @ Wonderous

This is a very moving tribute to the victims of the Orlando shooting and a beautiful one at that. The members of Boystown SL created this stunning piece to be included at SL13B with memorial citing each victims name. Clicking the front sign will give you a candle.

SL13B - Cake Stage

3. Cake Stage @ Pizzazz

The Cake Stage is always phenomenal at SL13B but this is my all time favourite! I chose a dark windlight to really emphasise the glorious colours of this 8-bit themed build!

SL13B - MadPea Mad Monster Mountain

4. MadPea Mad Monster Mountain @ Spellbound

I am huge MadPea fan and have participated in many of their fantastic interactive hunts. This exhibit shows off just how talented the creators are as you take the best and most frightening ghost train ride of your life. I can’t do it justice by writing about it, hop over to the site and take the ride!

SL13B - Digital Art Exhibition by Cammino e Vivo Capovolto

5. Digital Art Exhibition by Cammino e Vivo Capovolto @ Electrify Landscape

The sheer beauty of this build is what caught my eye and when investigating the creator, I found they have a gallery in-world full of equally awesome work! You can even buy the creations to feature on your own land.

I have included a few more snaps from my explorations below, please click through to see the larger images and captions, you can also find them on my Flickr.

I will definitely be following up on the Firestorm Gateway which will hopefully fit in perfectly with future plans for newbie resources for this blog.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the last week, stage managing is so much fun not to mention the diverse range of musicians and DJ’s I got to listen to for free! I’ll be continuing to explore the regions before they close as I definitely haven’t touched the surface.

How have you been celebrating? Have you enjoyed any of the events SL13B had to offer?

SL13B – Happy Birthday Second Life!

SL13B - Happy Birthday Second Life
Hi! Have you heard the big news? It’s Second Life’s 13th Birthday! SL is a teenager now!

After a very successful kick off yesterday, there’s a whole week of music, discussions and events taking place and of course 17 wonderful sims of exhibits and stunning scenery to explore.
I’ve explored a little so far and there are some amazing things to do and see, I hope to put together a post of my top 5 faves so stay tuned for that.

And as you can see by my fabulous selfie, I’m working as a stage manager! This is my second year in the role and I absolutely love the atmosphere, not to mention getting to listen to such an incredible variety of music. I’m working now 12pmSLT – 2pmSLT and this same time Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday so pop down and see me at the exceptional Stage Left!

Huge thanks to Giz Seorn of GizzA for creating these awesome outfits for the event – I feel exceptionally stylish and official!

Halloween Party + Meme!

On Saturday just gone, Exangui Nation hosted their Halloween party and this was my costume!

ExN Halloween Party

Myself and my friend Solsty are the event organisers and we created a dark forest – some of which you can see in the photo – full of nasty but interactive things to do and see such a haunted church, deathly carousel and much more! More photos can be seen here 🙂

A special mention for my make-up, manicure & pose; all from //elephante poses// and all of which can be found at Horrofest!

Meme Instructions: Share a picture of your Halloween Costume in Second Life and/or answer the following questions about Halloween. Don’t forget to share a link to your post in the comments and if you share a picture, feel free to add it to the Blog Memes Flickr Group.

1. Did you go trick or treating as a child? Yep! I loved dressing up and going out with my younger brother. I went a few times with my friend and her baby sister too, even though I was older I enjoyed it just as much!

2. What was the best Halloween costume you ever saw or wore yourself? Hmm, I’m not sure about what I’ve seen…
And I never got very creative when I’ve dressed up before… always a witch or a cat or something lol. I had an awesome demon costume last Halloween though, it was my first ever paid acting job in a restaurant and it was a lot of fun freaking all guests out!

3. What is your most vivid memory about Halloween? Apart from the acting job last Halloween, probably just being little and going around the neighbourhood getting sweeties.

What is the scariest movie you have ever seen? I HATE the Hostel films. They really really disturbed me lol. I also used to get scared by The Bone Collector when I was small, no idea why as I love it now haha.

4. Do you ever get nightmares after watching a scary movie? I no I have done in the past, not so much now. I’m actually more frightened by the more ‘everyday’ accidents and things you might see on TV shows like Casualty (UK) or films like Final Destination. I recently had very bad dreams after watching Holby City (UK) when a guy lost his hand.

Are you superstitious? If so, name at least one superstition of yours. A little, I don’t walk under ladders or scaffolding. I try not to walk on three drains and I don’t open umbrellas indoors. I do have a black cat though lol oops

What will you be doing for Halloween this year, if anything, in SL and RL? Well I’ve already attended one SL Halloween party, on the 31st I intend on going to Xanthe’s party in SL and then I’ll be dressing up in RL to go to a friend’s party after that 🙂
