Bay City turns Five!

Bay City turns Five!

Bay City is turning five years old today, with a special celebration (and we’ll be joining in with a special Designing Worlds all about Bay City tomorrow!).

In May of 2008 the Linden Department of Public Works unveiled its first project, the themed city area on the Second Life™ Mainland known as Bay City. As we’ll be showing, that collaboration still continues to play an important role in the development of the region, with its fascinating 1950s retro appearance.

But today, as Bay City turns five, its community invites everyone to join them in celebrating this milestone.

The anniversary celebrations will kick off around noon SLT/PDT on Sunday, the 19th of May, with a parade lineup at the bandshell in Bay City – Harwich. The parade will make its way down Route 66 beginning at 12:30 p.m. SLT/PDT, concluding at the Bay City Fairgrounds in the North Channel region.

A live concert will kick off at 1:30 p.m. SLT/PDT at the Fairgrounds, featuring Christov Kohnke, CelticMaidenWarrior Lancaster, and RoseDrop Rust, and including GoSpeed Racer of KONA Stream providing music leading into the event.

We suspect that there will also be fireworks … it is, after all, Bay City.

All Residents of the Second Life grid are encouraged to participate. Celebration goods are available at the Bay City Community Center, in the Daley Bay region, for those who wish to be a part of the parade, and able viewing area is provided. The music event is also open to all who desire to attend.

A little background from the organisers – Bay City is a mainland community, developed by Linden Lab™ and home to the Bay City Alliance. The Bay City Alliance was founded in 2008 to promote the Bay City regions of Second Life™ and provide a venue for Bay City Residents and other interested parties to socialize and network. It is now the largest Bay city group, and home to most Residents of Bay City.

As I said, there’s some interesting stories to be told in – and about – Bay City, and Designing Worlds will be taking a look on Monday 20th. But for today … enjoy the party!

We’re going to be celebrating The Blackened Mirror today with a special party today.

Join us at the Java Jive in Seraph City where there will be a party from 3-5pm SLT to launch a new game that will give you the chance to discover a little more about Harland Quinn, and the mysteries that lie behind … The Blackened Mirror.

Music will be supplied by Mr Victor Mornington – and there’ll be the opportunity to hear again the opening episodes of the special radio drama Death in Velvet – can you guess the murderer?

As part of the new game, we’ll also be revealing the location on the web of Episode 3 of Death in Velvet – currently only Episodes 1 and 2 have been revealed!

This week we will be launching the Second Life version of the game – and next week there will be the launch of a web only game. But we’re sure that followers of The Blackened Mirror will love this one – the letters they find not only uncover more of the mysteries, but they also reveal more about Harland Quinn – and his feelings for those closest to him.

So … put on your best film noir clothes and come and join us for a great party!

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!

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.

•★• SL House & Garden Sim Grand Opening! •★•

October 1st from 12pm – 2pm SLT Tunes by Summer Deadlight! Come on by have some fun, do some fantastic shopping and grab some free gifts 🙂 If you would like any information or an invite inworld – please contact Jennaa Loire.

*Display Room 1 – [Baustein]

*Display Room 2 – La’Licious Designs

*Interior Display Room – Trash Wahwah


Visitors to the SL House & Garden Sim can expect to see a venue dedicated to everything home, furniture, garden and decor. There will be a fantastic array of shops featuring the very best home and decor creators from accross the grid. There is more ‘showcase rooms’ featuring home and decor creators each offering an exclusive item for visitors to the sim, as well as a room for interior designers and bloggers each demonstrating different ways of creating a look for your home. There is also a new texture trend showroom…..a first for SL! This showroom displays some amazing and unique textures and shows you how to work textures together. Visitors will also have a relaxing gallery and cafe to enjoy which features home decor and garden photography of group members. There is also a terrific display of the winners of the SL House & Garden Group monthly photography competition. Not to mention, a spectacular and diverse sim built by pitsch Parx that is simply breathtaking. I can not thank pitsch Parx enough for creating this amazing sim with me. It has honestly been a humbling experience to work with such a talented person on this project. It has been an absolute pleasure my friend. XoXo


http://slhousegarden.blogspot.com/ Second Life furniture, garden, home and decor is a dynamic and ever growing industry that I am truly entusiastic and passionate about. I have tried to keep up to date with product releases and all the incredible changes within this field, but I found myself juggling over 20 groups and quite simply, failing to succeed. I was motivated to create a group named SL House & Garden. My ambition was for this group to be used as a resource tool for anyone who has a vested interest in this awesome industry. Bloggers and shoppers alike, can be informed about latest released, updates, sale notices and great gifts from our favourite Home, Decor and Garden designers in SL. Shop owners, designers and creators (textures, building components and builder’s aids are more than welcome as well) can join the group to boost sales and to communicate your products and creations to the enthusiasts and GET NOTICED, there is no cost at all involved! If I have raised an eyebrow, go to groups and search “SL House & Garden”.


I created this special location for group members and other guests as a place to come and relax, shop, blog, build their creations and to generally be a helpful tool for all home, decor and garden lovers of SL. There is a warm and inviting cafe and gallery where you are welcome to socialise with other enthusiasts or simply enjoy some ‘down time’. This can be used as a resource room which is the perfect spot to sit down and relax while you blog. You can check out the latest SL House & Garden photo contest winners in the gallery while you are there. We are very fortunate to have many wonderful creators on the sim. Make sure to stop in and check out their amazing creations. * Urbanized * The Loft * Organica * Prime Furniture * What Next * LISP *Awesome Blossom * BLONDE * Barcode * Sacred Roses * Made By Moo * Sher’s Cottage Garden * Southern Bella * C&D Designs * Cheeky Pea * North West * Ambiance Interactive Furniture * La Galleria * Weather Or Not *Croire * Pixelpaperie * Art Dummy! * CLEO Design * Abode * Spry * PHI * HomeKraft I also have an office on the sim where you can stop by and contact me in many different ways. There is also a suggestion/comments box where you can send me any ideas/comments you may have. Please treat this place as you would your home… please please be respectful of other visitors and if you have any issues please contact Jennaa Loire.


There is the “Textrure Trend Forecast” room just near the landing point. For the new SL House & Garden sim pitsch and I had the idea to showcase some of SL ‘s best textures artists around, and make a room only for textures, the “Texture Trend Forecast” room. Here you can pick up free textures, see how to work them together and get inspiration for your next project. These will change every 6 weeks. They will be themed and work from there. Jennaa Loire and Pitsch Parx will make themes and make textures groups within those themes. Make sure you stop there… have a look and pick up your free textures.


Designers are often faced with the challenge of marketing their products without the big ticket expenses of owning and operating a store in SL. In an effort to help their dilemma and to display some terrific items to visitors of SL House & Garden Centre & group, I have created 3 display rooms. There are 2 display rooms on this sim. These display areas will be rotated through the designers in the group and changed every 4 weeks. This is a fantastic way for well-known and aspiring creators to generate interest in their designs, and for home and garden enthusiasts to access a variety of products in one place. If you are a creator (big or small) and you would like to use one of the showrooms for a period of time, please contact me in-world for a notecard explaining all about them. If you an enthusiast, this is an opportunity to get to know some of the popular and lesser known designers within SL. The creators will also have an exclusive item available for purchase during their time at the SL House & Garden Centre. Make sure you head on over to their display rooms and pick their items up.


Interior decorators and bloggers are often faced with the challenge of displaying their work inworld. SL stores generally feature creators, designers and retailers but there is no opportunity for decorators and bloggers to display their creativity. The SL Home & Garden Sim has created a showroom especially for interior decorators and bloggers to demonstarte their ability and imagination. Visitors of the centre can see their amazing work upclose and creators can browse the showroom and be inspired to send future review items to the tenants. This showroom area will be rotated every 4 weeks through the interior decorators and bloggers in the group who wish to use it. This is a fantastic way for well-known and aspiring decorators/ bloggers to generate interest in their work and give their followers and real-life, 3 dimensional presentation of their conception.


If we can help you at all.. please don not hesitate to contact us. Jennaa Loire: Email: jennaaloire@yahoo.com Plurk: http://www.plurk.com/JennaaLoire mainit Hellman: Email: a_mainit@yahoo.com Plurk: http://www.plurk.com/MainitHellman
