Galen has been busy! He says:
Jasmine and I have been working most of our waking hours this past month to bring out our best contributions to the Halloween contest. I split my time between Alfy’s (Subway Nightmare) and Jasmine’s “Miner Difficulties”:
Jasmine is a storyteller. She follows up her award-winning Through the Waterfall experience with this second story and really hits it out of the park with an excellent build and a concept that is both whimsical and blood-curdling.
I am not going to say anything about this experience (beyond posting a photo of the initial scene above) and I am going to ask you to just go and see it for yourself. Jasmine and Galen have outdone themselves here! Excellent work and excellent narrative! This is one of the best immersive Sansar experiences that I have ever visited! This is definitely a contender for Sansar’s Scariest Experience contest, the deadline of which is today.
We first visited this experience back in September, but C3rb3rus has updated it with a 1950’s-style drive-in movie theatre, and a little something extra:
I will also say, that The Diner is the first Sansar experience to give me a genuine fright (and no, I’m not going to tell you where!).
Time for another Sansar fashion blogpost! Today Vanity Fair is going to model some of the necklaces available for sale (even some for free!) in the Sansar Store. (All pictures were taken in the Valencia experience by Theanine.)
First up is a gorgeous nature-inspired necklace with gemstone flowers and leaves by Cora, only S$50 (US$0.50 or CDN$0.62):
Next up is a pretty gold heart necklace by Edith Legend, a real steal at only five Sansar dollars (US$0.05 or CDN$0.06)!
This blue dragonfly necklace is by Talevin, and costs only S$50 (US$0.50 or CDN$0.62):
Finally, here are two free necklaces! The first free necklace is one of several Hallowe’en-themed necklaces by SIN, a bat with glow-in-the-dark eyes:
And if you’re really into the glow-in-the-dark thing, here’s a rainbow glow necklace by Cat, also available for free in the Sansar Store!
I first heard about this experience yesterday and I put it on my checklist of places to explore today. You arrive in a small, candle-lit entrance hall, where you are greeted by the butler’s voice, who welcomes you to the mysterious mansion. You pass through the doors and immediately enter into a large arched room with a grand staircase leading to the second floor. It is pouring rain outside, and the occasional flashes of lightning illuminate the dimly-lit interior.
While there, I was pleased to see Inara Pey! She was also exploring the house; we were the only two people there. She and I traded notes about the secrets of the rambling old house.
She reported that, in desktop mode, some parts of the mansion were so dark that she could not navigate them. I also noticed (when I switched to desktop mode to chat with her) that the house seemed darker than in VR mode. I did find a staircase that led to the house’s basement, but it was so dark (even in the VR headset) that once I was down there, I could not find my way back upstairs and I had to re-teleport into the experience from the Sansar Atlas in order to re-orient myself.
You can pick up multiple objects in this experience (Inara told me about a book and a skull she had found, but I could not find them). Look for the hidden passageway!
Be sure to visit and explore The House of Woe, created by Nick the Brain Guy.
