And don’t forget – every day at 4pm SLT, we will be holding a lantern release from the ramparts of the Prim Perfect castle.  It’s a short time for quiet reflection, for thinking of those we have lost, for celebrating those who are still with us.

The best place to watch will probably the stone circle overlooking the castle.  And after the lantern release, while you are here, you can also explore the element of Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poem, The Lady of Shalott, which Aisling Sinclair has incorporated in this beautiful build.

Spread over nine sims, HGE features the finest in Second Life Home and Garden design product and creator tools. Over 85 participating creators have joined HGE, one of the first mega-events of the 2015 Relay For Life fundraising drive in Second Life.

This year’s HGE is supported by nine Platinum Sponsors and eight Gold Sponsors. It also includes, for the first time, a comprehensive shopping guide listing all donation items, new releases, hunt, raffle and gatcha items.

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – where we look back at the stunning builds that we saw at the Relay for Life of Second Life weekend at the end of July – is now on the web.

Sadly, we only had time to visit a few of the great builds, and talk to a small number of the talented creators behind them – we just wish we could have shown everything. Thankfully, our wonderful photographer Wildstar Beaumont was on hand to ensure that we have many more on our slide show!

Sign up for our talks!

Sign up for our talks!

Following the success of our discussion / interview programmes at the Home and Garden Expos for 2011, 2012 and 2013 … and the Christmas Expos and the Birthdays … well, you get the picture!  At the 7th Home and Garden Expo, running from September 16th to 28th, we are planning a further series of talks with designers and landscapers.

These talks will take place inside our very special poetically inspired castle on the Prim Perfect sponsored region. But we’ll be telling you more about that later!

We’re planning to host events at 2pm (and, if needed, 5pm) every day.  If you would really LOVE to give a presentation, but can’t make that time, contact us and we will see if we can fit you in.

We are happy to host talks, presentations, interviews, question and answer sessions.  It’s an opportunity for designers to share ideas, for people to meet their favourite creators, for communities to come together and talk about their culture and ideas.  We’re very open to hosting what YOU want to tell us about!

If you would like to be a part of our programme at the Expo, please complete the form below with your topic and preferred dates and times. We will try to fit in as many people as we can!

WBCMlogo2014-Do you have a favourite cake recipe? Share it with Prim Perfect – and you can help us raise money to fight against cancer!

Every September, the UK charity Macmillan Cancer Support holds the biggest coffee morning in the world – and this year, we’ll be holding our own event for the second time – and we want YOU to join in!

It’s Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event, where they ask people across the UK to hold a coffee morning and raise money for people living with cancer. In 2013, 154,000 people signed up, raising a record £20 million. In the UK, people bake cakes to sell at coffee mornings that they host at their homes, their places of work, their schools, colleges and universities …

And here in Second Life, people organise coffee mornings too.

Last year, we held a very special coffee morning at Prim Perfect, where we raised £85.00 (over US$100) through the sale of virtual cake – and we will be doing it again this year.


But this year we are inviting people across the grid to join us by holding coffee mornings of their own – in their stores, cafes, and virtual homes. We will either supply cakes for you or you can donate your own – and get your friends to share their favourite recipes too!

We’ll be holding an event – a party at the Prim Perfect offices. We’ll be posting more details about times closer to the event!

How do you sell virtual cake?
Well, we thought our virtual cake was rather good value! We asked people to give us their favourite cake recipe, and put it inside a virtual cake. Then when someone bought the virtual cake, they received a real recipe – so they really had whole cakes, that they could make over and over again – and there were a lot of really delicious cakes to try!

Some people made really exquisite Second Life cakes that you could take to display in your own kitchen.  Others made simple cakes following our instructions, or even simply gave us a recipe and we made the cakes for them. So, you see, anyone can take part!

We’ll be printing instructions on how to make a simple Second Life cake in the new issue of Prim Perfect, and giving away tools to help you make a cake with the inworld copies of the magazine.


On the grid, all the money we raise from cakes and donations will go to an avatar we have created especially for the event – Macmillan CoffeeMorning (with a registered name of CoffeeMorning Resident). But if you host your own event,  you can donate to our Just Giving page. or directly to Macmillan Cancer Support.

How can I contribute?
1. You can come to the coffee morning and buy some cake!

2. You can make a cake, add your favourite recipe, and send it (full perms) to Macmillan CoffeeMorning (coffeemorning Resident), who will be putting them out on offer for the coffee morning.

3. Or you can send your recipe to Macmillan CoffeeMorning inworld or at primperfect@gmail.com – and we will bake a cake for you!

4. You can host your own coffee morning anywhere on the grid – and send the money to our Just Giving page. This money will be registered (so we can see how much we raise through the coffee mornings) and will be sent securely and directly to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

5. Or you can simply make a donation through our Just Giving page, or directly to Macmillan Cancer Support.

We have received the following press release from The Relay Rockers (one of the best known teams from Relay for Life of Second Life):

2014 Alliez Mysterio Award Invitation

2014 Alliez Mysterio Award Invitation

The Relay Rockers are planning to present an award in honor of their late co-founder Alliez Mysterio.

“To honor our friend and co-founder The Relay Rockers have established the Alliez Mysterio award. The award recognizes those people who have, like Alliez, made a lasting contribution to the world’s biggest virtual event, The Relay For Life of Second Life.”

Beginning this season the Rockers will present the Award to the Relayer(s) who they feel best exemplify Alliez’ dedication by their contribution to Relay.

The award is to be presented at the team’s Thank You party, Sunday August 24, 2014, with the party beginning at 3pm.

The award will be given to the person or persons who, in the opinion of the team’s award committee, have exhibited “Relentless Dedication” and have made an “Enduring Contribution” to the Relay For Life of Second Life. “

Alliez Mysterio came to Second Life in 2003. A pioneering virtual explorer Alliez saw the potential of the nascent private island sims and in 2005 her first sim, Rue d’Alliez opened. From that single island d’Alliez Estates spread over the grid, growing to more than 150 islands. She established a system of ownership and rentals that has provided a home to many residents of Second Life regardless of their virtual manifestations, lifestyles or interests. She made every effort to accommodate her tenants, was always there to address issues and was loved by all who came to know her.

In 2005 she joined with Trader Whiplash and Nuala Maracas and formed the team that became known as the Relay Rockers. From 2005 until breast cancer took her from us in 2013 Alliez was a steadfast supporter of both the Relay Rockers and Relay For Life of Second Life.

2014 Alliez Mysterio Award

2014 Alliez Mysterio Award

Alliez Mysterio left an indelible imprint on our virtual world and she is missed by one and all. This Award will honor both Alliez’s memory and the dedication of the awardees.

The Rockers, who celebrated ’10 Years Walking Strong’ this season finished with the highest possible fund raising level, Purple. They raised more than L$5 million through their signature events, Bid Me Bald and the Celebrate-Remember-Fight Back Top DJ Competition. They were also honoured during Relay weekend with the coveted “Returning Team Participation Award” as well as 1st place for The Inventive and Creative Fundraising Award and 2nd place for The Cancer Education Campsite Award.

The party, which will be held at Seasons dAlliez, will feature Gina Gracemount, a team supporter and Bid Me Bald ‘Victimteer’, performing live at 3pm and close with T1Radio’s Time Machine – the 60s, featuring Trader Whiplash. The 2014 Award Winner(s) will be announced at 4pm by Rockers Founding Captains Nuala Maracas & Trader Whiplash, 2014 Team Captain Ariel Stormcrow and Sue Peregrine, Alliez’s daughter and CEO of dAlliez Estates.”

Everyone is invited to attend and are asked to dress in semi-formal attire.
