Prim Perfect's Head Offices in the Seychelles

Prim Perfect’s Head Offices in the Seychelles

Prim Perfect Head Offices have changed their address!

Previously we were located in the Irish Isles. Now we have, seemingly, moved south and east the the Seychelles!

In actual fact, we were located in the Irish Isles on Irish Aran Island.  Now the Irish Isles have shifted their locationto the fringes of the Blake Sea and – in celebration, have changed their name and identity the the Seychelles Isles.  And our new location is Pointe LaRue Isle.

We still have our beautiful offices, designed by Dijodi Dubratt and landscaped by Aisling Sinclair.  And we will be holding events here over the coming months, with talks by designers and other celebrations.  We hope to be taking part in some of the events organised in the Seychelles too,

Today in celebration of the launch of Seychelles Isles, they have been holding a day of celebration is planned to introduce the new Estate to Second Life participants.  Residents of the Estate are invited to have their friends and families join in this day of entertainment and fun in and around the Golden Gate Yacht Club SL at Seychelles Isles.

Our First Cover

Our First Cover

Six years ago today, I was exhausted.  I had been up most of the night, laying out the very first edition of Prim Perfect. Most of the work (I can modestly say) I did myself.  I wrote the articles, I took the photos, I sold the ads and I laid out the pages – all forty eight of them. I had help from a reporter who wrote an article, and from a designer who created the front page and laid out a few internal pages.  The rest was me.

So I was exhausted, but I was also looking forward to the party to celebrate the launch.  It was to include a charity auction, and that evening we raised enough money to put the roof on a school in Lesotho thanks to the generosity of designers like Sue Stonebender and Baron Grayson whose faith in Prim Perfect ensured that it got off to a flying start – quite literally, as the prize item in the auction was one of Baron’s ships, suspended gracefully over the square on Venice Island, the single region owned by Melody Regent, who had also backed the magazine from the start.

But it didn’t stay just a magazine for long. Six months later came the TV show – MetaMakeover, which later became Designing Worlds.  And then there was The Primgraph, Quest for the Golden Prim, Metaverse Arts, Happy Hunting! and The Blackened Mirror. And there have been specials and guidebooks for events (such as Home and Garden Expos and the 2012 Fantasy Faire). There have been campaigns that we played a major part in – such as Step Up! against content theft and One Billion Rising.  There have been parties, hunts, events, games, a lot of hard work, a lot of fun, and lot of friends and – considering everything – surprisingly little drama.

Six years later, we’re not having a party – but that doesn’t mean we see nothing to celebrate.  There’s a secret plan shortly to emerge, and we’re all hard at work on the new issue of Prim Perfect. We’ll probably party later in the month. We’re six now. I think we can party when we want to.

So today, on our sixth birthday, I want to say, quite simply, thank you to all the people who make Prim Perfect the prim perfection that it is – the people who have produced it over the years, the writers and photographers whose wonderful work fills the pages.  The advertisers whose support enables us to go on producing the magazine. The readers whose support and enthusiasm gives us some much pleasure and the willingness to go on, to improve and to always strive to be better.

Six years ago, I had a dream that here in this virtual world there could be a magazine for homes, for gardens, supporting designers and small businesses and nonprofits.  Six years later, I am so proud to be a part of Prim Perfect and all its associates, so lucky to have found such wonderful people to share my vision, and so privileged to have been able to create a voice that can speak for what I believe.

In fact, you can vote for us … and many, many of the people we have featured in Prim Perfect magazine, or on Designing Worlds or Happy Hunting. In short – the Avi Choice Awards represent a fantastic array of Second Life talent – and all nominated by the people behind avatars out there on the grid.

But don’t just take our word for it … go to the Avi Choice Award site and register your votes for all the categories that you want.  It’s divided into four areas:

We’re in Entertainment – and you’ll see that Prim Perfect is nominated in the Best Magazine category, while Designing Worlds and Happy Hunting both feature in best TV show.

And if you are regularly readers (or viewers) you will doubtless recognise many of the names of nominees too!

The whole process culminates in an amazing awards presentation on December 14th from 6pm SLT onwards, a highlight of the Second Life Christmas Expo.  Elrik and Saffia (hosts of Designing Worlds) presented part of the programme of awards in 2011, and we are hugely honoured to have been asked to do this again – and this year, we’ll be joined by Aisling Sinclair and Zander Greene, stars of The Blackened Mirror.  Zander, of course, is the holder of the individual Spirit of Relay Award for Relay for Life of Second Life 2012 – and the funds raised by the Expo will go to support Relay for Life of Second Life 2013.

Fun under the Sun to celebrate Prim Perfect’s Fifth Birthday!

After last night’s wonderful party for Prim Perfect in Costa Rica, today we’ll be hitting the beach and dancing in the dunes to the music of DJ Summerina from 12 – 2 pm SLT.

We’ll be on the special Prim Perfect beach at Muffins (what a great name!). Make sure you wear your beach or swimwear – it’s going to be a fun way to celebrate our fifth birthday!

We’ll see you there!

Dancing at the Prim Perfect Party

Dancing at the Prim Perfect Party

We had a wonderful party last night – and it was lovely that so many friends and colleagues dropped in.  So today’s jigsaw’s (hey, it’s Sunday, you can have two!) come from last night’s celebrations, and were captured by Petlove Petshop.

The first one shows a group of us dancing – Ceejay Writer, Dellybean North (in the background), Aisling Sinclair, Maxwell Graf and Saffia Widdershins at our Head Offices in Costa Rica.  The second shows some of us again, and other people, listening to the wonderful Voodoo Shilton who played a gorgeous set.

The other two artists were CECI Dover and Am Quar – both of whom were wonderful; Costa Rica organised the party, and not only found us great musicians, they also arranged a brilliant soundscape of artists, each different, and each supplying a different mood for the hour, which made the party a terrific experience for those who were there for the full three hours.

Oh, you missed it? Well, never mind – we’re doing it all again later today … in a slightly different form.  At 12 noon there will be a rather special beach party on a specially reserved beach – make sure you join us for that!  Details will appear on the blog shortly.

So here is the first jigsaw (it’s a standard 67 piece to get you warmed up):

And here is the second (this time a 51 one piece crazy – which I find much tougher!
