Exclusive Art Auction http://www.nci-sl.info/blog/exclusive-art-auction/ http://www.nci-sl.info/blog/exclusive-art-auction/#comments Thu, 16 Apr 2015 19:00:18 +0000 http://www.nci-sl.info/blog/?p=1745 Continue reading 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.

How to look FABULOUS for free! http://www.nci-sl.info/blog/how-to-look-fabulous-for-free/ http://www.nci-sl.info/blog/how-to-look-fabulous-for-free/#comments Sun, 15 Feb 2015 21:54:19 +0000 http://www.nci-sl.info/blog/?p=1712 Continue reading 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.

We Dance & Donate, Mix & Mingle and have a great time.

Every week there’s a new Always Optional Theme: Join the New Citizens Inc group to get your reminder notices, theme for the week and handy landmark and/or SLURL link.

Lemme show you how we got down this past Summer:

SplishSplashSalsa1

I flooded the Dance Flo’ for Splish Splash Salsa – what???

SplishSplashSalsa2

Great to see the merfolk coming out to have a splashin good time!

I really love water so the next theme just HAD to be Ice, Ice, Baby (Too Cold, Too Cold) – butofcourse LMAO

IceSalsa1

The Canadian Folks were in their element as we slipped and fell and hit our CHA CHA CHA moves as best we could.

IceSalsa2

And YES we did have Vanilla Ice representin. We kept him frozen in an ice block because well you know…

IceSalsa3

Dance Flo’ Bish likes to dress up for the weekly theme too! Her earmuffs, matching snow boots and sparkles were too much. Oh hey Bevvy – where you goin? ROFL

Come on out and party with us every Saturday! Broke? That’s ok! Bring yaself and a couple two three of ya pals on over anyway. Donate your Time, Energy and Awesomeness :)

The Gift Box is always in Full Effect with wacky prizes and operates on Mojo, so get it together! Experience Traffic Jam Salsa – practice makes perfect – the Panny Check and learn the art of the Glom.

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 ).
