Outfit Outlay: Sci-Fi Armour

Ecne is a new Sansar creator who has put out some seriously impressive stuff! I bought his two-piece science fiction armour for female avatars, and I just love it! The top part is S$100:

And you pair it with the bottom part, also S$100:

In addition to the greyish white with blue fluorescent markings, this outfit also comes in black with green fluorescent trim (see the items in her store here). Wearing this sci-fi outfit really makes me feel like I want to go out and explore the galaxies!

Here’s a couple of pictures of Vanity Fair wearing her new sci-fi outfit at the Astro Port experience, by Mold3D. The back shot really shows the fluorescence! Very cool!

Atlas Hopping with Drax and Strawberry, Episode 5!

Wow, hard to believe that we are already on Episode 5! I joined the party late because I was busy doing The Renaissance Hunt 7 over in Second Life. There are over 70 wonderful gifts, so be sure to do the hunt before it ends September 30th! Here is my medieval roleplay avatar, Scarborough Fair, wearing the beautiful Lucia gown by Jezzixa Cazalet for Prism Designs, and the Santiago coin brooch by Jacon Cortes Designs, both of which are free Renaissance Hunt gifts:

Coin Brooch 2 Sept 2017

Today we visited four Sansar experiences (I was only at the first three):

  1. Hootenanny, by Lillani
  2. VR Cult – The Events Hub, by Colpo Wexler
  3. Astro Port, by Mold3D
  4. Beginner Yoga Session for Headset Users, by Dutchie

VR Cult Sansar 2 Sept 2017

The VR Cult experience is particularly captivating in a VR headset. As I mentioned earlier when I selected this experience as my Pick of the Day, VR Cult is currently hosting two exhibits of artwork by the Italian artists Matteo Guariso, a photographer, and Francesco Musante, a painter and illustrator.

Here’s Strawberry Singh’s live stream of our Atlas Hopping event:

And here is Draxtor Despres’ live stream:

Pick of the Day: Astro Port

Today’s Pick of the Day is Astro Port, by Sansar user Mold3D. The experience is a futuristic spaceport, with posters advertising travel to other planets, and a passageway leading to an interactive ball-toss game. (Unfortunately, you do have to have a VR headset with hand controllers to be able to pick up and toss the balls. Desktop users do not yet have this functionality, but Linden Lab has said that they are working towards feature parity between VR and non-VR platforms.)

Here’s the video of me in a spacesuit, wandering around the Astro Port. By pressing the right thumbstick on the Oculus Touch hand controllers, I can switch from third-person mode (you can see my avatar) to first-person mode (you see from my avatar’s viewpoint) and back. I am in third-person mode when walking around the spaceport, then I switch to first-person mode when I pick up the pink neon ball, then I switch back to third-person mode to throw the ball. Cool! (My aim is terrible!)

Scene of the Day: Astro Port

Astro Port Sansar 10 August 2017

Today’s Scene of the Day is this image by Ciaran Laval (here’s his Flickr photostream) of a futuristic Sansar experience, created by Mold3D, called Astro Port.

This picture was posted to the largest Sansar-related Flickr group called, simply, Sansar. The administrator of this group is none other than the irrepressible Second Life landlady and celebrity Jo Yardley, and there are currently 162 members. Already, there are 300 pictures in this group. People sure have been busy taking photos in Sansar!
