Hear What Second Life Resident Fashion Experts Think in Real-time

Each day of the event, as many as five SL Fashion Experts will be standing by to share ideas and images, and to discuss the vibrant fashion scene in Second Life. There will be exclusive Fashion blog posts and insider style tips shared in the Fashion Forums during this interactive community event.

Ask Questions 

Experts will be on call in the community from 9 a.m. through  4 p.m. (Pacific) during all four days of the event (Sept. 18-21). This is your chance to ask these fashionistas any SL style-related questions you can dream up and hear their expert opinions. Newbies can get advice on how to improve their avatar’s appearance, and more-advanced Residents can get the scoop on the latest fashion trends and developments. No query is off-limits — just ask the Fashion Experts!

Share Your Creations

Want to share your own creations? All participants can post and share images of favorite fabulous fashions and creative combinations at this community event. Join the conversation and ask the experts and community what they think of your designs.

In celebration of its sixth year in Second Life, Bare Rose Tokyo has created an elaborate treasure hunt that begins with a click on the poster near the store's entrance.

Once you click on "The Mother Dragon" poster, you'll receive a hunt folder that contains the prologue to an elaborate storyline and quest that will take hunters through several challenging puzzles and stunning locations. 

bare-rose1.jpg

It all begins with The Blue Maze, where you must navigate your way to the exit to claim the first of many prizes. Weave your way through these crystal caves to find your way to the exit, where you'll be given the first components of The Armor of Ordeal outfit (in both male and female versions). You'll need to click on the "Next Chapter" sign at the exit to claim your gifts and receive a landmark to your next challenge.

As you arrive at The Bridge of Red in the next chapter, you'll be faced with several menacing blades that you must carefully dodge. The task is made more difficult by the dodgy-looking, narrow stone bridge that you must stay on. Be careful here! If you fall, you'll land in the nasty lava pool below. Your reward for making it safely to the other side? More free items to complete your Armor of Ordeal outfit.

In the next chapter, you'll encounter the daunting Wall of Green. Don't look down if you're agoraphobic! You must carefully descend from the small rock ridges to safely arrive at the exit below and claim your prize and the next landmark. You'll be rewarded with the final items to complete your Armor of Ordeal outfit and you'll also gain entrance to the next challenge.

At last! You've arrived at The Room of Gold, where you'll find yourself face-to-face with a huge golden dragon. Find the vulnerable spot to claim your final prize...and it's a good one! You'll get a special, rideable dragon that makes the entire journey well worth it.

So, that's the end of the quest...or is it? Rumor has it that there is even another hidden secret of this hunt to discover in the Bare Rose sim. Can you find it?

This hunt is only around until Sept. 17, so quest seekers will need to head over to Bare Rose to get started before the fun ends.

Happy Hunting!

Check out this post discussing the possibilities for design using mesh on ArchVirtual.com.

"...This long awaited ‘holy grail’ feature in Second Life has now finally arrived on the main grid! The subject of numerous false starts, April fool’s jokes, and much controversy – it is now possible to import 3D models directly into Second Life. The implications from an architectural urban design and city planning perspective are obvious."

Mesh Showcase

Have you visited the new Destination Guide Mesh Showcase?

It’s only been two days since the formal rollout of mesh in Second Life, but some amazing creations are already starting to surface. For example, artist claudia222 jewell has created the surreal and sticky Mesh Mellows, where human-bug hybrids dwell in a creepy underground abyss.

The SL fashion blogosphere is also abuzz about the many form-fitting mesh fashions starting to roll out, such as those by Jane, Dirty Lynx, Curious Kitties and LaRosa.

To see these advanced mesh creations in action, visit the Mesh Showcase in the Destination Guide. However, you’ll need to use a mesh-enabled viewer, such as Viewer 3.

Are you a creator who is using mesh in a new and innovative way? If so, tell us about your designs, fashions or environments using the Destination Guide Suggestion Submission form to be considered for the Mesh Showcase.

A film called Life 2.0 will air Thursday evening on OWN (Oprah’s TV network). The documentary premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2010 and follows several Second Life users, illustrating some of the ways Second Life affected their offline lives (and vice versa).

You can watch the trailer for the film here, and check out some past reviews from Second Life Resident (and Betterverse blogger) Rik Riel, as well as from The New York Times, the Huffington Post, and the Village Voice.

The film and its portrayal of Second Life inspire a mix of reactions from audiences. If you watch the movie, we encourage you to add your voices and personal perspectives on Second Life to the conversations the film may spark — it’s a good opportunity for us all to talk about what we think makes Second Life interesting and special. If you’re on Twitter, you can join the conversation at #Life2.0.
