WHAT HAPPENED?

Sunbeam wasn’t as active the last couple weeks at her Grid Hopping.  Plus, a technical disaster happened at WHAT virtual world and the founder decided it best to closed the grid completely after days of trying to repair the damage.  The best he could do was roll back to November 2012 and let the members know what happened.  He’s a stand up guy.  Many other grid have had ‘technical’ issues or closed  up without a word to their members.  I was proud to be part of the WHAT core crew.   We were right in the middle of making a new Welcome area and setting up Free parcels for new member when it happened.  It’s been a week now, we  miss WHAT,  but are certainly grateful for the time  spent there sharing space with the wonderful  new friends I met and my partners in crimes for a long time exploring and visiting virtual worlds of the metaverse.

Isis’ New Spot @ Tundra 3D

Sunbeam was lucky enough to dance and laugh and  share good times with long time  her  friend Mikey McIntrye while he was spinning some of the best Blues on 3rd Rock . What a wonderful grand time reminiscing about our days together a couple years past when we planned parties on a region called Decades.  Those were the days my friend!   

When  Grid Hopping over to Metropolis to see Minethere Always’ new Steampunk project Sunbeam fell into the middle of a impromptu party.  She made a new friend,  saw a couple familiar faces and had a fun time.  The Euro feel of this grid and friendly members makes it a fun hop.  Sunbeam is now working on a Steampunk Gazebo for Miney’s next Free Theme OAR to be given away free to anyone that asks.  We’ll share pictures of that build next post.

A brand new world … brand new! Tundra 3D

Sunbeams’ friend form Island Oasis, Isis Ophelia invited her to come see a brand new virtual world she had just joined.  It’s called Tundra 3D and is based out of Italy.  Everyone was very welcoming and Isis offered Sun a couple parcels to set up shop at ID Designs.  Love a new start and fresh beginning.  Its like the first few weeks of an intense romance.  Smile.

FLYING IN WHAT_001

Flying out for more VW Grid Hopping Adventures

 

Spent some quality time with a couple bff’s’ Kat Ewry and lynne lundquist at Kat’s new shop  Lady K jewelry.  She is so amazing at it! We envy her talents.  Anyhoo, the three of us are planning doing up Lion and Kat’s newest acquistion, another region making four now.   We’re thinking castles on top and a full region glorious magical merfolk and scuba diving  under the sea fantasia.  Sunbeam’s speciality.  On Second Life we have avatar Kohana Schimmer who has been a mermaid creature  since 2008.  Island Oasis is also having another building contest this one themed “Beach” so Sunbeam joined in and building a nightclub themed …. mermaids of course.  She is calling it SirenS Club and will share some pictures with you next post.   Wish her luck, she could be winner of 5000 Ps ♥

More FUN in Virtual Worlds

Yesterday I talked about music and virtual worlds.  Today let’s dance! Yes one can puppeteer their avatar to dance, alone or with a partner or with a group.  In the beginning dances were done by clicking on a ‘pose ball’, pink for ladies and blue for the gentlemen.  There are also large floating Dance Balls (allows 20 or more avatars to dance and holds 20 or more dances) and Dance Systems where you choose which dance you want from a menu and can change at will.  You can also make your own HUD (Heads Up Display) where you program in your favorite dances.

Then there is the ‘chim’ which you wear, most popular place to wear is the hip. All the dances in the chim are choreographed in a sequence of your choice.  The ‘chim’  is similar to the HUD except the dances loop and you do not choose which dance to activate. The chim is  invisible and only your friends can click on your chim, or you can send them an invite to dance with  you step by step. 

Virtual worlds have many specialized dances too, like the River Dance which is very popular with the Irish members and the surfing community (another blog subject to come) or John Travolta’s Saturday Night Live dance or one of my favorites Michael Jackson’s Thriller dance. 

So pop on in a virtual world and let’s dance! your feet won’t ache and you can literally ‘Dance ALL Night’… have FUN!

Safe Paths
