Petite Village

Petite Village

Last year, at the amazing auction that concluded Fantasy Faire, I bought a really gorgeous petite village, created by Nya Alchemi, the owner of Fuubutsu-Dou & Kirei Shops. They are exquisite – and include cottages, a working windmill, a town hall and a wishing well.  Having gained a little more space on my home island, I have set them out on the shores of a small lake – and they look beautiful.

I have always liked the idea of small buildings that can be used as follies or visual tricks. On my old homestead of Oliveto, I have a miniature Tuscan village with a church, a fountain and tiny cypresses, deliberately placed on the skyline so people looking up would think it a full sized village.  I had it out on Cor Unum too although, without the perspective trick, it was never quite the same.

For the last year I’ve been pulling out individual buildings from this set and planning that one day, no matter what the prim cost, they would find a home. And now they have – and you can do a jigsaw!

And for those of you looking forward to Fantasy Faire … there seem to be some exciting plans in the works so … stay tuned!

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.

Welcome to 2014 and another season of Happy Hunting, the show for and about Second Life hunts. We are introducing a new format this year. The show will come to you every Friday, posted on our web site.

Cinders Vale brings you The Hunt Report and highlights gifts from the Bag It, Pack It, Clutch It Hunt, the Lazy Ladybug Full Perm Hunt and the Key to My Heart Hunt.

At the moment, there is an auction going on for Feed a Smile, organised by the Mad Pea group (the people behind all those fabulous games) at the Mad City.  What’s up for auction is various Second Life personalities, some of whom are offering their company – but many of whom are offering their skill sets to those fortunate to win them.  For example, you could have a portrait taken by Strawberry Singh, a pair of boots by Cutea Benelli, work on a collaborative 2D artwork with Taralyn Gravois or a photography lesson with Ziki Questi, or a variety of options from Victor1st Mornington – including converting a basic prim home into mesh.

Also up for auction is me (Saffia) and – under his avatar name of Logan Ellsmere, none other than the the redoubtable Mr Biggins.  What will you get for a successful bid on either of us?

Mr Biggins is offering:

The winner will be able to nominate a building in New Babbage to be featured in a Designing Worlds show, or make a contribution to the script, or appear as a character (or possibly all three!).
Please note that these shows tend to be Christmas specials – so it might be a little time before you can take full advantage of your prize – although we will try to do one earlier!

And if you win the auction for Saffia?

I would help them promote their favourite place in Second Life, either through an article in Prim Perfect or with a Designing Worlds show, depending on what they would like to feature!

So if your bid for me is successful, you could have a Designing Worlds show (or a Prim Perfect article) about your favourite place or your organisation, or your business!

MadPea are hoping to raise over a million Linden through the auction. All week you can bid on the boards, and the event will finish on Saturday with a live auction and a day of entertainment! So come along and place your bid on the board!

Join us today, Monday 17th February at 2pm at the Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams for a special viewing party for a belated Valentine’s Day treat as Designing Worlds takes a trip to the stunningly lovely regions of Oubliette and Ode.

We’ll be talking to Saiyge Lotus as we explore the gorgeous regions she has created, with Elizabeth Tinsley and other friends, and we’ll be seeing the Oubliette in different seasons too. There will even be the opportunity for Saffia to indulge her inner mermaid!

Beautiful Oubliette

You can also see this episode on Treet.TV and on Aview.TV as part of their Designing Worlds pages.

Designing Worlds visits New Babbage – and what can possibly go wrong with that?

Well, quite a lot – as Saffia and Elrik discover when Mr Merlin takes tea with a certain Dr Jekyll …

The aftermath of tea with Dr Jekyll

But not to worry, for Miss Widdershins and Mr Mornington are on the trail with the aid of a trusty (if somewhat reluctant) Mr Biggins*.

But all is not quite what it appears …

It’s a Christmas special with the addition of Mr Biggins, Mr Victor1st Mornington (as themselves) and Mr Da5id Abbot as Dr Jekyll. Plus some rather wonderful horses … Kalypso Whitesong, Betta Zapp. Dancer Inglewood and Chaerry Lastchance, trained by Miss H0neyheart Resident.

The Stage at One Billion Rising

The Stage at One Billion Rising

Today is the last chance to visit the One Billion Rising regions and see the art installations, the fabulous stage created by Victor1st Mornington and the beautiful gardens and landscaping created by Aisling Sinclair.

Everything will be taken down today, ready to return the islands tomorrow morning – but we’ll be closing with a take down party! Join us on OBR Dance! (or Rise, Release or Justice!).
