Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 4th February, for our new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams as we visit Old Time Prims, the home of Vintage Retro, a new region next door to 1920s Berlin, but covering a far wider time period, and featuring some interesting real life crossovers.

The name of the region is Old Time Prims (as the owner of the region, Mila Edelman, is also the owner of that well known vintage store), but it is also known as Vintage Retro. It is drawing together a wealth of vintage and retro commercial ventures – and some that actually cross boundaries into real life.

Modelled on a bustling vintage European city, with echoes of Munich, Vienna and Budapest, it provides an intriguing home for a number of stores and vintage locations. Mila will be giving us a guided tour and an insight into how smaller stores with a strong theme can help one another – and themselves too!

It makes for a fascinating show – so do come and join us at 2pm.

Idyll on Alirium

Idyll on Alirium

You may have seen our message about needing dancers for the One Billion Rising video that we are making in Second Life – and please, please do sign up to dance!

One of my most delightful tasks over the past few days was scouting out locations for this – some of which we’re going to be using, and some of which we’re not. I won’t spoil the sur[prise of which will eventually appear – but I thought I’d share the opportunity to share some of my findings.

The first of these is the beautiful region of Alirium – a lovely, peaceful landscape. Interesting, I gritted my teeth and set my graphics on high … but it just made the water look darker (albeit more transparent). It actually looked nicer on a slightly lower setting to me.

Do try the jigsaw … and come and dance!

Catch up with your Prim Perfect jigsaws (showing images of Second Life and other virtual worlds).

If you’d like to submit a photo of your own to feature as a jigsaw, send it to the Prim Perfect Flickr Group. It should be sized 800w x 600h, or else it will need to be re-sized.
