Second Life: Fantasy Faire 2015

The SL Blogosphere is abuzz with word that the Fantasy Faire organizers are taking applications from bloggers… I wonder if my readers are  mostly other bloggers. Looking at my stats, no… not possible. There are not anywhere near as many SL bloggers as I have daily readers… I eliminate the fashion and porn bloggers in my thinking because I am pretty sure I don’t have enough of their favorite fare here. So, that eliminates lots of SL bloggers from my counting.

#SL Fun Things

Coming from Myst Online MadPea has always fascinated me. If you don’t know who MadPea is, you are missing out on once of Second Life’s creative groups. While skimming through my reader I saw Honour’s quick review of MadPea’s Show and Tell. They do a show and tell thing on Sunday’s at 2 PM SLT. It was just 2 PM so I popped over. It’s in-world at the MadPea Base.

I got there and had to change viewers. Sculpties or Mesh was going nuts and filling my screen. A quick change of viewer and all was working as expected.

Show and Tell

This show and tell thing is about people showing things they have built, as Honour describes it, their inventions.

Halloween in Second Life 2011

In Second Life we have traditional events that the Lab has put on to show off content. One of the spontaneous events that residents build for is Halloween, which is a big and growing holiday in America. Residents create hunts with hundreds of search locations. Some places create hunts within a single region. It is way big fun.

Finding all those participating with spooky Halloween builds and hunts has never been easier. The Destination Guide and What’s Hot Now are both helping expose fun places to residents. Plus Farthington Whetmore has created an in-world portal to Halloween builds. Contact him in world via IM or the new Send Message to add your location.

Also, there is a neat thread in the SL Forum. The Haunted Halloween season is just around the corner — how will you celebrate? There are shops and haunted houses listed in the thread. Everything from tattoos to bodies and funny to gruesome monsters are listed. As of now there are about 3 pages of stuff listed.
