I went to visit Second Life. Haven’t been in a while. I visited with my friends, Huntress Catteneo and Attica Bekkars.
We had a nice time visiting with each other. I was shown around their sim. I have seen parts of it on earlier visits. But was shown more and most importantly, saw the RIDES they have created. Rides for carnivals. I LOVE carnivals. We enjoyed some of the rides too. I had posted about Second Life a while back, when my friend, Huntress again, was having an ArtFest. It went well and she said people really enjoyed themselves very much. The Artfests are for charitable reasons. Here is a link to a book she wrote about 6 months ago. Looking into the Darkness I haven’t read it. (It is a REAL LIFE book, not a SECOND LIFE book) You can view some of the pages of the book on the site itself if interested.
A picture of Attica. You can see that behind both Huntress and Attica there are “carnival” booths. I won a free poster, actually hit the target with the dart. YAYAYYAAY. I had to shoot the dart quite a few times however. Even in games they make it tough to win.
It was all in fun and I had fun. I actually met Attica yesterday, I had not known her before. She and Huntress are business partners in SL and own a SIM, which is where they create their items, let people play on the rides and such and sell the items they create. Both are very artistic and talented. It is lovely being able to see what they have created. If you want to visit their Sim and store just visit these links.
Huntress’ store: Eclectic Diversity
Atticas’ store: Heck, I have forgotten the name of her store. Whimsical Wally??? Crud.
Here we are on one of the rides Attica has created, she is “saving” me, that is why she is hanging off of the spaceship! It is a good thing Attica was “hanging” around, who knows what planet I might have ended up visiting!
All I can say is thank goodness for good people, HEROES,even! I was amazed by her ability to hold on, not to mention her strength when pulling that wayward spaceship back to earth! The gravity pull alone must have been astronomical!
That is me, in the Bouncy room. It is a good thing there is no ceiling. I am tall in Second Life, 6’5″ if I remember correctly. Each time I bounced I went right through the roof! The “boing” sound alone made me laugh, it was great!
Afterwards Huntress took me to another place that was having a Valentine’s Day Art Festival. Here is a picture of Huntress’ entry in the competition:
I think she did a great job. You might not be able to tell, there are small hearts laying around on the ground and behind the artwork itself. Some of these make you “do” things in-world. Like dance or relax. I took a picture of the two of us dancing after we “sat” on the hearts. (“Sitting” on various items, hundreds of items, can make you simulate movement in-world) Here you go! We were just having a nice time visiting
with each other and being silly or crazy. I really enjoyed myself. Hope you like the pictures!
