Romance at Rustica

Romance at Rustica

It’s Valentine’s Day next week and we’re inviting you to join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 6th February, for a special repeat of last year’s Valentine’s episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams when we meet three couples who are behind some of the best loved brands in Second Life – and who have taken their Second Life partnerships into real life.

Each of the three couples have crossed continents or oceans to be with each other in real life, and they’ve all been together since around 2007 – that’s getting on for ten years!

We talk to Shai Delacroix of Casa del Shai and Kris Lehmann of Botanical, to Lyyric Fei and Maxwell Graf of Ristica, and to Bastchild Lotus and Paul Lapointe of Lapointe and Bastchild. They share their stories with us – funny, moving and exciting by turns – and sometimes with touches of frustration with officialdom too!

It’s a show that reveals the real people behind the avatars, and it’s also a powerful demonstration of how our virtual world impacts on our lives away from the screen.

It makes for a fascinating show that you won’t want to miss!

Or – if you can’t attend in person – tune in to the web at 2pm SLT on Monday for a showing on SLartist or on Treet – or catch it later in the week on our shows page on the Treet.tv web site at http://treet.tv/shows/designingworlds, on the SLArtist.com channel, the Aview TV Designing Worlds channel – or on the Designing Worlds blog.

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – a visit to the the beautiful estate of Rosehaven, which has recently celebrated its tenth anniversary – is now on the web!

 

And if the name is a little unfamiliar to you, that’s because until recently, the estate was known as Winterfell, a name it took in 2006, long before a certain television programme had made the name widely known.

Rosehaven is a estate of mystery and romance, with some dark undertones as we discover when we take a look at builds old and new (including some new mews cottages), and discuss the different aspects of this lovely fantasy estate. We talk to the estate owner Selena Anansi and visit some of the residents in their homes – including Elizabeth, the Duchess of Trikassi, Mr Podruly Peccable and our very own Wildstar Beaumont who was one of the very earliest residents of the estate!

And we take several tours of the waterways to see some of the magnificent castles and other builds, as we discuss the importance of story in the lovely and magical Rosehaven.
