Oh the things that you can see at SL12B!

One of the many things you can do in Second Life at the moment is go exploring at SL12B, Second Life’s 12th Birthday Event. Here are a few things I found while wandering around.

All aboard the train of death…. look for the floating souls along the platform . ( that’s my interpretation of the build)

Exclusive Art Auction

cyber-rainby-Ginger-Lorakeet

NCI has been given an Interactive Art piece by Ginger Lorakeet to be auctioned off during their 10th Birthday event.

The piece is called  ~Cyber Rain~ and depicts a futuristic scene filled with raining code (think Matrix)  Cyber Rain has been scripted with an animation that makes the immersed avatar look as though they are basking in the code.

This Interactive art piece will never be sold to anyone else so the winner of the auction will be the one & only owner. Though keep in mind the artist reserves the right to still show it at any art event.

NCI’s Halloween Party – Euro Time

Yesterday I was lucky enough to attend NCI’s early Halloween Event. I think this year we had the most people I have seen at the earlier party, thank you to all those who came along and made it lots of fun.

A big thank you to Wellington Beam for hosting and running the ever popular Toob Race, also big thanks to Imnotgoing Sideways & PJ Devonshire for being most excellent DJ’s, and Pawlina for hosting Prim Charades. ( adding a humongous thanks to Krystal Devonshire for organizing  us rowdy lot and making the whole thing happen )

I was the photographer for the costume contest and it was amazing to see all the imaginative costumes people had arrived in.  We had 3 male & 3 female winners in the costume contest ( check them out below ).
