Isle of View

Hello from the Isle of View! I really like that this event is opened to ALL Second Life residents, and not limited to premium members only. There are gifts, rides, and events planned for Valentine’s Day. I would like to Hug-A-Linden, but I’ll be at work during those hours. Boo! šŸ™

Hello Kitty Village; Astralia x Sanrio

Hello Kitty Village

I went Hello Kitty Village last night, to see my childhood favorites interpreted digitally. The 4 regions are stamped with Hello Kitty everywhere, free rides if you can bear the lag, and a few shopping items made by Astralia, in collaboration a brand in real life called JimmyPaul. You can read all about the event on the AstraliaWorld site.

Some time ago, Astralia received licensing rights from Sanrio to sell Second Life content (decor, clothing) with Sanrio characters on them, with the most recognizable character being Hello Kitty. Brands in real life have cashed in on the appeal of Hello Kitty & friends for decades, so it wasn’t a surprise to see it eventually make its way into the virtual world.

Hello Kitty Village

The Astralia x Hello Kitty 45th anniversary event runs from November 1st – November 15th. This theme-park like event is packed with rides, photo-op places, and some clothing & decor by Astralia. You can pay the event $799L for a souvenir picture, or you can be like me and take your own selfie! I saved money by buying nothing at this event, which wasn’t hard, since I don’t like plastic kiddy colors.

Hello from my mainland beach! Since I sold my sim, I have been looking for a small slice of waterfront beach. As you know, most mainland waterfront beach parcels are overpriced, costing HUNDREDS of dollars. I consider mainland a risky investment, cos at any moment, a neighbor could rez a giant rock wall or other annoying decors and ruin everything.

I’m so happy a friend I met recently on mainland gave me this parcel, cos he just bought a full sim. I have one side that is unblockable watefront, and the other sides are kind of horrible. I will just look out, and never look back. I love FREE LAND!

Cathedral in the sky

Cathedral in the sky

Hello from ChouChou! When I read that the beloved ChouChou sim was closing last week, my first thought was, “it’s still online?!” Apparently so, and now Linden Lab is trying to save it.

I’m pretty sure everyone with a last name in SL has visited ChouChou at least once. If you haven’t, you should go before it closes (but it may be saved!). I have visited this sim half a dozen times in the past decade, and I NEVER knew there was a cathedral in the sky until I read about it last week.
