  2. Take a trip to Kawaii City, a cyberpunk metropolis where you can gaze at skyscrapers while relaxing at the cafe. Builder and owner of Kawaii City, Naru Darkwatch, shares her inspiration for this photogenic destination: “Somebody asked me what inspired me to build Kawaii City. To answer that question, I must explain some of the background I have had in my Second Life journey. I joined this fantastic world because of the roleplaying environment and the freedom it gave you to create a character almost 100%, just as you want it to be. But as Real Life took more and more of my time, I came to SL more for the friends, music, and to relax with a little building; it started with Kawaii Café so we could all have coffee in the mornings before work and not get yelled at by a GM because we were not all in character. Little by little, a city began to take form as more land became available to buy. The cafe and city have always been open to the public as I wanted to make a home for those who did not have a place to go, where you could be who you wanted to be but still be in a cyberpunk environment and not be forced to roleplay all the time. Eventually, it took some convincing from friends to list it in the destination guide as I’m quite critical of my creations, but many said I should, so now it’s there. Many have asked if I will open it up for RP, but my goal for the city is to keep on building it, improving it, and not to set up rules on who can visit and what to do there.” If you’re looking for a cyberpunk destination to explore without roleplay requirements and other restrictions, teleport over to Kawaii City now. Video Production by Draxtor Despres Kawaii City A photogenic cyberpunk/dystopic city to walk around, eat some Asian food, have some delicious coffee, explore the bars and clubs or find a place with that special somebody and snuggle a little.

  7. Enjoy the last days of Autumn in a fall-themed café with a pumpkin spice brew as you listen to the soothing sounds of November Rain. November Rain was built by SEMINΛ, a live musician who has been playing gigs around the grid since 2016. SEMINΛ has an interesting way for the virtual world to boost her creative output in the physical world: as she works on new music in the physical world, she finds it comfortable to "park" her avatar at a Second Life destination that's inspiring. It helps spark creativity to surround herself with a certain environment. She says, “Pre-COVID meant visiting a lot of places and traveling in RL so it was quite comforting to find a little part of what was missing in RL at the moment, right in front of you, on the screen.” SEMINΛ explains that November Rain actually came about on a warm midsummer night: “I was tired of the heat and couldn't wait for pumpkin spice season so I thought, let's create it then! Me and my bestie Aurelia von Troubles wanted to open a little place of our own for the longest time where we could host different types of events. Our friend Ƶąȼƙ happened to have some leftover land so we thought, why not? I wanted to create a poetic place with some of my favorite things. Autumn, cozy cafés, the forest, gloomy indie music, sprinkled with a little bit of rock n roll (Guns’N Roses - November Rain), and of course: the sound of the pouring rain.” SEMINΛ says to her there is a lot of beauty to be found in the gloomy darkness of things: “It doesn't always have to be sunshine and rainbows for something to thrive in a good or positive way. I do read a lot of books and while building November Rain, I imagined this to be a place where a modern Jane Austen would come to relax. I'd sit in the corner of the café, secretly looking up at her from the lyrics in my notebook. She wouldn't notice me though…I'm a typical extroverted introvert and as much as I love the social part of SL, I also like to curl up alone with a hot drink at an autumn café in the woods, listen to music and the sound of … November Rain.” Teleport now and find your inspiration at November Rain. Video Production by Draxtor Despres November Rain Explore the autumn-themed café: November Rain. Grab an umbrella, take lots of pictures and meet new friends. Curl up with a hot drink in the Café and listen to live music and the sound of autumn rain. Visit in Second Life
  8. This holiday season, take a trip back to the 80s at Le Chateau, a retro community in Second Life! Creator Victoire Sire shares the inspiration behind Le Chateau: “In 2021 a friend suggested that we design a typical American motel. But as I'm French, we don't have motels in France or they are super rare. After some investigation I thought it was a great idea and that's how the adventure started. We had to find inspiration for the colors, the design and especially a global theme to create this idyllic resort. So we went for the goofy aesthetics of the 80s and 90s, inspired by Miami, GTA Vice City, Scarface, Synthwave, Vaporwave, South America, French Guiana and two French TV series: OVNI(s) (a kind of French Stranger Things taking place in the 70s) and 3615 Monique (the debut of the phone sex on an early internet made in France known as Minitel). Why French Guiana you gonna ask? Well, I simply wanted to make a French-inspired destination without actually being in Europe. Imagine being in the late 80s where technological and social evolution happened. The Plaza was also heavily inspired by yuppie culture, movies such as The Wolf of Wall Street and skyscrapers like the Tour Pleyel in Paris and the original World Trade Center design. But also the "Message a caractère informatif" - a French comedy TV show based on old corporate films from the 1980s with modern funny dubbings. Here we are in 2022, bringing the 80's back to the community! Le Chateau is a virtual tale of luck, grit, know-how and the magic that arises when an assortment of eccentric characters comes together to live in this 80's island paradise. It's not just a shady motel by the roadside anymore, it's a whole lifestyle. We also offer rentals in the estate. long-term motel rooms inside skyboxes, short-term motel "romantic" suites for daily usage, "lodge" suites with private gardens, premium villas at Le Chateau Vice Island, and so much more. We have a full waiting list available in the small Le Chateau Vice Island gazebo building. The office tower is still under construction but so far we don't offer any rentals in it.” When asked what Second Life means to them, Victoire responded: “I am 25 now. I've been in SL for a very long time (my first account is from 2009), at the time I was using SL on PG sims for teens, I did a lot of roleplay. Those are really my best memories. Since then I have found my passions: Decoration, modding, landscaping, designing sims , photography, making SL videos for myself or for my clients and role-playing. Second Life is for me THE most amazing metaverse experience you can currently have. As an autistic person, social life in real life is difficult but in Second Life I can be who I truly am and it is so much easier to communicate.” Grab a cocktail, slip into an iconic retro swimsuit, and dive into a neon-filled 80s vacation! Video Production by Draxtor Despres Le Chateau - A Retro 80s Community Do you like vacations and hanging out while drinking an exotic cocktail by the poolside? Then Le Chateau is the place for you to be! With their kitsch and cheesy atmosphere and non-stop flowing exotic cocktails, a mix between French and American "80s'" culture atmosphere, they offer a wide variety of services, from the jungle-like airfield to the arcade room! Take your pick! Visit in Second Life

  12. Discover a hauntingly beautiful region of lost dreams and surreal landscapes at What’s Lost Spirits in Second Life. Long time Second Life resident, Stabitha aka Sam, has created a nightmarish place, a place of surreal art to explore, and a space where one can maybe confront one’s own anxieties? Sam explains: “What's Lost Spirits is a mix of RL experiences, such as the entry point and the mansion, and the recurring nightmares that followed those experiences. I have and have had, very lucid and vivid dreams all my life. I visit the same variety of places over and over again in those dreams, the feel of the places never changes but the buildings do over time, as well as the people. It is because of them that I decided to build What's Lost Spirits. I have a whole world in my head and Second Life gives me the perfect canvas to get that out. Eventually I will have stories that will go with the areas and characters and I plan on hopefully making them into a graphic novel of some sort. That will take years though. So for right now it's an ongoing work in progress.” Sam has indeed already written two short stories, although she is not sure they are quite finished yet: “The first one is called ’Sam's Story’. The main character has the same name as me. Coincidence? Maybe. It is about how the nightmares started, it is a real life experience. The second is called ‘Terror’. It is a short story that has to do with one of the nightmare characters.” If you like Sam’s style of visualizing her dark thoughts in the virtual world, we recommend a visit to her store which features some hand-picked (and hand-crafted) imaginative items, perfect for the season. Happy Halloween! Video Production by Draxtor Despres What's Lost Spirits Explore a region of lost dreams, an ongoing project based on a series of vivid nightmares. Visit in Second Life

  25. It’s hard to believe that Second Life’s 19th birthday is around the corner. Over the years, I have continued to enjoy discovering new and interesting places to explore across the grid. However, I also appreciate looking back at some of the OG destinations that have left a lasting impression. Their longevity is a testament to the value of creation in SL, and you should absolutely check them out! Using the Second Life Origins category on the Destination Guide, revisit some of the earliest and historically significant locations and landmarks in Second Life. Here are just some of my favorites. SS Galaxy Established in 2007, SS Galaxy, also known as the Queen of the Sagittarian Sea, is an enormous, full-featured cruise ship that spans three regions and offers an array of activities, just like a real world cruise! Visit in Second Life The Man "The Man" statue is one of the only surviving objects from the original "Linden Town" area that was developed in Second Life during the earliest Alpha stage of its development. At times, The Man has served as a shrine where miscellaneous offerings were left, and a celebration of the creativity SL was founded upon. Visit in Second Life Climbable Beanstalk One of the oldest objects in SL is a beanstalk, created by Steller Sunshine in 2003. An influential model of organic shapes in a whimsical style, Steller used to hold contests challenging Residents to jump from leaf to leaf — can you make it to the top? Visit in Second Life Da Boom Visit Da Boom, the very first region in Second Life, founded in 2002. It's named after the real-life "De Boom" street in San Francisco, and Residents have speculated it's also a reference to the "Big Bang" of our virtual world's conception. Visit in Second Life Svarga Climb on top of a giant wasp and take a guided tour of this tropical island, which first opened in 2006. Explore the library inside the central tower, relax near the spring fountain, or start an impromptu jam session with some peculiar elven instruments inside the playhouse. Visit in Second Life Lost Gardens of Apollo Established in 2005, the Lost Gardens of Apollo is a relaxing and romantic spot with beautiful gardens, waterfalls, and secluded places to snuggle. Visit in Second Life Chouchou Since 2008, Japanese music group Chouchou has brought their creativity to Second Life in several photogenic and atmospheric regions, including "Memento Mori," "Islamey" and "The Babel." Visit in Second Life Japan Tempura Island Established in 2008, Tempura Island has been a popular destination for socializing, romance, and healing. Explore the forest, dance in the ballroom, wander through the temple and meditate amidst the Japanese motif. Visit in Second Life The Far Away A blast from the past! Featured in The New York Times! The Far Away is an interactive 3D art installation in Second Life. First built in 2007 by AM Radio, now curated by Ziki Questi and Kinnaird Resident.
