Rosehaven Estate, photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

Rosehaven Estate, photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

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.

Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 30th January, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams, when we’ll be visiting the beautiful estate of Rosehaven, which has recently celebrated its tenth anniversary.

Perhaps the name may be a little unfamiliar to you? That is because until recently, the estate was known as Winterfell, a name it took in 2016, long before a certain television programme had made the name widely known.

We talk to the estate owner Selena Anansi about the reasons for the name change, and about why her voice sounds strangely familiar!

Rosehaven is a estate of mystery and romance, with some dark undertones. 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 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 go we talk about roleplay as opposed to lifestyle, and talk about the role that storytelling plays in Rosehaven.

We can promise you a really lovely show so do join us to watch it at 2pm SLT.

If you would like to visit the Rosehaven Estate for yourself, the recommended starting point is Rosehaven Castle.

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.

Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 23rd January, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams – for the first show in the new season, when we’ll be paying a visit to Virtual Ability.

We’ll be hearing from Gentle Heron, one of the three founders of Virtual Ability, how the Iasland – and the nonprofit – came to be founded, and something of the design principles that underlie the islands, making them accessible to many kinds of disabilities. And we’ll be learning how they support new residents coming in to Second Life too.

We take a look at Health Island and explore the reading rooms, libraries and displays of various kinds – and above all the Path of Support that offers links the the myriad organisations that have a Second Life presence for a wide range of conditions.

Then we visit some of the residential islands that form a part of Virtual Ability, and meet some of the residents there who talk about their experiences, together with Stepinwolf Darkstone, the Cape Heron Apartments Manager.

Finally, accompanied by Gentle Heron and Suellen Heartsong, we visit a fascinating – and very informative – research project that has been developed on Virtual Health Adventures with Virtual Ability supporting a research project on diabetic foot health – a really important issue for the growing number of people with diabetes.

It all makes for a really interesting start to our Designing Worlds season – so do join us to watch it at 2pm SLT.

Join us today, Monday 15th September at 2pm SLT at the Designing Worlds studio in Garden of Dreams as we visit the wonderful new home that Froukje Hoorenbeek has created for Dutchie.

It’s a magnificent build that has been two years in the making. Froukje has released various pieces and sets over the last two years that were created for the house – and many have found their way into homes across the grid. But now, for the first time, all that creativity is drawn together in one magnificent home – and Designing Worlds was given the opportunity to explore it.

And as we explore it, we talk to Froukje about how she designs and creates, and the role that her life in the Netherlands plays in her creations.

You’ll be able to see this magnificent house for yourselves at the Home and Garden Expo.

This is a fascinating show that all lovers of fine design in Second Life will adore – make sure that you don’t miss it!

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!

Yes, Designing Worlds is back for a whole new season – and we’re inviting you to to join us today, Monday 8th September at 2pm SLT at the Designing Worlds studio in Garden of Dreams as we look back at the stunning builds that we saw at the Relay for Life of Second Life weekend at the end of July.

Wildstar and Saffia were both thrilled to be awarded two of the first ever Community Champion Awards at the Wrap Up for this year’s Relay for Life of Second Life. The other recipients of this award were Stingray Raymaker and Daniel Voyager. Saffia says: “That’s very awesome company for me to be keeping! I was so privileged to receive this award – working with Relay for Life of Second Life is not just a pleasure, it’s a privilege.”

Saffia also won another award – Smell the Roses – The Clown Awards – for her Twerking for a Cause. This was a moment at the telethon captured by Petlove Petshop. She was wearing my dinkie avatar (a cute little cat) for one of the hours and someone mentioned the fact that Saffia could twerk as a dinkie. So it was agreed that if the telethon team raised 10,000 Lindens (the Second Life virtual currency – it would be about US440) by the top of the hour, the dinkie would twerk. By the top of the hour, people watching the telethon had donated a total of 22,000 lindens (around US$900) and … the dinkie twerked.

And in other video news, Elrik and Saffia were challenged to the Ice Bucket challenge by Nikki Mathieson. You can see the results below!

Saffia and Elrik decided to donate their challenge to the charity Water Aid. Saffia says – “Here in the UK, it’s become customary to choose which charity to donate your Ice Bucket challenge to. While we are both supportive of the work done by ALS, we decided that we would like to raise awareness of a charity connected with clean water – something we wish as a blessing for people at the end of every Designing Worlds show. We’re therefore making our donation to Water Aid – and you can read here about the impact that Ice Bucket Challenges are having on the work of this vitally important nonprofit. And we’re proud to say no real water was wasted in our taking the challenge!*”

This is a fun and beautiful start to our new season – make sure that you don’t miss it!

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.
