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)

How to look FABULOUS for free!

Welcome NCI readers! Today’s post is going to cover a subject near and dear to my heart – Freebies! Everyone knows that one of the biggest parts of Secondlife is the infinite ways we can customize our avatars. Just check out the Marketplace sometime and see all the different outfits, avatars, accessories and parts for sale. “But Rowan,” you say, “I’m on a budget!” Well honey, who isn’t?

Freebieandcheapie

For the best guide to freebies and cheapies in SL, head to your closest NCI campus and find this notecard in the Freebie Vendors. I’ve scoured the grid for the best quality freebies. Hair, makeup, clothing, avatars, even men’s stuff! Not sure if I’m telling the truth? Check out this outfit I put together in about 20 minutes of hopping around the landmarks in the notecard.

Getting Dizzy at Kuula

A lot of awesome builders & scripters visit Kuula, and some of the stuff they come up with is just amazing…such as Mcarp Mavendorf’s Icosahedron Roller! Just don’t ask me what it does because I honestly am not really sure besides spinning around in a very confusing manner…

We ended up getting 15 people to sit on this crazy thing, but the lag was a bit crazy so it didn’t last very long.
