I had forgotten to direct people to Inara Pey’s regular comprehensive blogposts about the most recent Sansar Product Meetups. Sorry! Unfortunately, I can no longer simply reblog them, but I can still embed links to them:
Note that Linden Lab has changed the regular dates for their Product Meetups, moving one meeting to earlier in the week rather than having two meetings every Friday.
Today’s High Fidelity Pick of the Day is the colourful and cheerful domain called simply Mexico. It’s Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) and the air is full of floating lanterns! There’s a real sense of unified artistic style in this domain that I really like.
Visit the graveyard and the pueblo village. You can pick up a free sombrero to wear from one of the carts in the central square, or a decorated skull facemask.
To visit Mexico, you’ll need to download and install the High Fidelity software here. You don’t need a VR headset; you can run High Fidelity on the Windows or Mac desktop. Once you have installed the software, log in and select GOTO from your tablet menu in your VR headset (or from the menu along the bottom of your screen if you’re in desktop), search for “Mexico” and you’re there!
Debi Baskerville has been churning out the avatar fashion in Sansar! Her store, called Journey, is full of creative and fashionable designs for both male and female avatars:
The following outfit I saw Debi wearing at our most recent Atlas Hopping, and I liked it so much I bought it for Vanity Fair!

The Official Church of Marriage is a public VRChat room created by Lucifer MStar, which I found while browsing through the Community Spotlight section of their Worlds menu.
It’s a large chapel with pews and stained glass windows, all set up for a big wedding with an ivy-covered canopy. Avatars are milling around, as if they were preparing for a wedding rehearsal. I decided not to bother them.
On each side, there are doors leading to small rooms where the bride and groom can get ready. Each room has a large queen-size bed (?!). Maybe so each of them can have that one last fling before the ceremony?
This is the only church I can ever remember that has a bar and reception area located in a separate room, right behind the altar! Tables and chairs are all set up and ready for the guests.
The Official Church of Marriage is your one-stop shop for that fabulous wedding you always wanted. However, I somehow doubt that the weddings conducted here are legal 😉 .
(I still need to work out a system for taking good pictures in VRChat. The built-in camera tool in the VRChat client only seems to take panoramic photos, and I am having a bit of trouble using SnagIt, my preferred screen capture tool, while VRChat is running in my VR headset.)
UPDATE 8:40 p.m.: Ask and ye shall receive! Someone on the VRChat Discord server told me the secret to taking snapshots within my VR headset:
Screenshots for Oculus is holding left menu (button with the 3 lines) and left trigger together. For Vive its the System Button and Right Trigger simultaneously.
Thank you, Magic Monkey!
